About Us

DECEMBER 2013

Leon & PlutoniaSummer- and winter-, midday- and night-, near-Lughnasadh- and Imbolc-born respectively around the dawn of the seventies, we, the male and the female co-founders of the SolitaryThinkers blog site, met in the nineties as students of the Faculty of Philosophy of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, at a time when university education was public and largely free, wherefrom we hold three language and literature B.A. degrees. We have forged ourselves into a powerful translating and writing team that has been struggling to barely survive since then. We have translated dozens of fiction and non-fiction published books as freelancers for many of the leading publishing houses in Greece, and we have distinguished ourselves as ghost writers for professors of many major Greek universities.

To no financial avail. The academics have been approaching us to most inexpensively attain for themselves higher hierarchical positions thanks to our ghost articles, and the commercial publishers have been rubbing their hands over unexpectedly high sales and receiving enthusiastic credit for bringing out excellent and captivating translations. What our readers and the critics never suspected, is that for each assignment we had been laboring for tiny payments we at times never even received, because we had no family support and no connections with politicians, circumstances unheard of for anyone to succeed as a freelancer in countries like modern Greece. As the middle class is being squeezed out, books have become more and more of a luxury, the assignments’ pie has become smaller and smaller, less and less serious translators (not the mass-production software-loving kind) are needed, and the self-appointed intellectual minions of the elite remain afloat by throwing the independent hard-working souls overboard.

We are Leon and Plutonia, both born in dysfunctional families and conservative environments completely incompatible with our freedom-breathing minds. We tread this path of life hand-in-hand because we think alike on pretty much everything, and we are together and yet solitary, in which there is no paradox, because only in silence can we develop our rich inner resources and insights to share with each other and with the world. The following two quotes best describe our yin-yang symphony.

Kahlil Gibran, from The Prophet:

You were born together, and together you shall be forevermore.
You shall be together when white wings of death scatter your days.
Aye, you shall be together even in the silent memory of God.
Let there be space in your togetherness,
And let the winds of the heavens dance between you.
Love one another, but make not a bond of love.
Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls.
Fill each others cup, but drink not from one cup.
Give one another of your bread, but eat not from the same loaf.
Sing and dance together and be joyous, but let each one of you be alone,
Even as the strings of a lute are alone, though they quiver with the same music.
Give your hearts, but not into each other’s keeping.
For only the hand of Life can contain your hearts.
And stand together yet not too near together;
For the pillars of the temple stand apart,
And the oak tree and the cypress grow not in each other’s shadow.

Hafez, Persian Poet:

Even after all this time, the Sun never says to the Earth, “You owe me”.
Look what happens with a love like that. It lights up the whole sky.

We are jobless and faced with homelessness, because since long before the debt crisis we have been targets of reckless hatred within our families, which destroyed any mainstream opportunities we might have had in this life. We have been struggling to sustain a basic level of existence and maintain a holistic equilibrium with unimaginably scarce means, but it is hard for anyone who has not been feeling the embrace of Hades all their lives to understand how ruthlessly exploited you get when you have mortal enemies instead of blood relatives and poisoned-against-you social circles in colonies like Greece.

We do not know how much we will manage to upload and with how many of you we will have the time to connect before we get thrown out of our only home. We have a one-digit bank account and no cash in our pillows. It is scary and disheartening. But we are fighters. We do not mean to give up, we do not encourage anyone to give up, especially when there appears to be no hope. As we create this place, our Internet home for you to feel welcome in and find some solace in the middle of this collective hell the world is going through, we feel we are already amid a rebirth process; there is definitely something crackling in the air, something like the Tarot Fool’s unlimited potential shining through at the beginning of his journey. Every thought we shape, every word we put down, is a prayer for strength and balance in your lives, dear fellow travelers, truth seekers, feelers and healers. So let us join forces. Dehumanization will not have free reign in this fellowship as we travel from Hades to Light.

Our blog’s background is a reminder of our collective preexistence.

  1. Raphael's Legacy by Barry Hardy said:

    My first thoughts we’re to simply applaud the sublime eloquence and transparency of thought in your blog and leave it at that. Thereafter my more refined thoughts focused upon unravelling that which is articulated over that which can’t be seen, distilling the hidden into clearer resonance. Once completed and understood; I was more at ease with your vibration and therefore trust in your journey, yet would urge you both to be significantly more sparing of your energy/life force.

    Therein; be sparing in your knowing, be sparing in your caring, be sparing in your reading and seeing and above all things remain rooted in your personal power. For that is your sentinel that is guiding you back into your remembering and it’s your remembering that will change all things and everything and for ever too. But that requires you to direct ALL of your energy accordingly.

    That said and in the interim period and whilst you ponder that which I humbly have to say, please explore the writings and free downloads provided by Tom Kenyon at http://tomkenyon.com

    For I believe that there is information provided by Tom Kenyon which will lift you free and propel you to where you need to go. But remember; Tom Kenyon is only one of many committed to lighting the way as you are doing yourselves right now, therein; I simply recommended him at this time because I believe his wonderful gifts of “free download sound therapy” will really help you kick start your journey into and through your 2014 transition, sincere regards, Barry

    PS your blog does have a wonderfully unique energy !

    • As ego-boosting and comforting an applause may be –thank you for so considerately opening and closing your comment with that–, we are even more grateful for your recognition of and response to our need for some spiritual companionship. We see your point when you are urging us to be sparing; you do recognize our intention is good, but you are concerned that by coming out of our solitude too forcefully, we might end up spreading ourselves too thinly, being unwisely exposed and proving of no substantial service to ourselves or to the world. The web is a dangerous primordial soup where humans are not the only agents, where our souls get caught in all sorts of low-vibration traps, and we know that most people dispose of less-than-ideally-trained cosmogonic skills. Your empathetic guidance has already taken positive effect, so we can be more consciously navigating through these energies, and we are grateful for your connecting with us.

      As far as our knowing is concerned, the reason our minds have expanded in so many directions is that we have always been given and laboriously completing the most arduous book-translation assignments about many different branches of knowledge, assignments no one else could or would take up because it is not worth it (financially – which is all there is for most people) working like we have been working for almost two decades. Anyone who works for months on end on a single book, thoroughly studying and producing an original work while being completely cut off from the world because he/she has no money to spend, is regarded as a sloth on a massaging couch and gets paid accordingly: close to naught. Now all of a sudden, they think they can be taking up such assignments, the panicked members of the Greek politicized society, in order to make up for their reduced incomes and to establish themselves as even more important members of this system which has led them to pride themselves on their dog-eat-dog attitude. They do not take any great pains to produce meaningful intellectual works, but they do seem to be able to work with feline speed and agility thanks to their expensive CAT tools (Computer Aided/Assisted Translation); people with high connections but no respect for the written word are being paid to abuse it, leaving us with no income at all. Due to the deep recession, people should be buying more books, books being the cheapest entertainment, but they are buying less and less thanks in part to the severely compromised writing quality of these less and less creative translators. We have tried our luck working for some translation-outsourcing project managers, but you can never get lucky with this kind of ruthless exploitation which is extremely unethical (remotely killing working people), fundamentally illegal (you cannot be taxed if you are invisible) and misanthropic (a. you are not allowed to exist if you cannot be multiply taxed in countries like Greece, and b. the expanding translation memories make human translators more and more redundant); in short, a vile form of slavery which can never give you enough to live on. We are not even allowed to remember living on sun gazing anymore, not even here in the Mediterranean, with this day-and-night spraying above our heads.

      And while more and more Greeks are emigrating again –often without any guarantees for any sort of success, not even for bare survival–, we have to sit here trapped and watch our braindrained country collapse. No one is a victim of circumstance, but we are not the only ones shaping our destinies with our personal thoughts, either. Long ago was Plutonia bereft of her Northern European legacy, and our immobility is becoming more frustrating now that her progressed Moon entered Aries a few weeks ago, actually on the day of your above comment, Barry; we first felt the surge of restless energy and then we found out that the progression was taking place on that very day. Even more rough times ahead, it seems, unless we receive some drastic positive changes in our worldly circumstances, changes which will help channel our share of influxus stellarum towards more constructive results.

      For the time being, our debts are constantly increasing thanks to the absurd overtaxation; they have been increasing since the summer of 2012, and we never had any debts before that, simply because we never lived beyond our meager means. None of our many efforts to find any other job have been successful; we are regarded as either underqualified or overqualified or too old. We are threatened from many directions and we have no idea what is in store for us, since we cannot afford any legal support. Our apartment has always been cold during the winter and unbearably hot during the summer (we didn’t have to wait for this debt crisis to be suffering), but it is our only shelter, the place we have been gratefully living in and working from 24/7 for the last dozen years, and we have absolutely nowhere else to go; right now we are fighting to postpone our eviction, hence the delay in our replying to you, for which we offer our sincere apologies. The “reckless hatred” we mention above is targeting us relentlessly now in order to finally annihilate us in our darkest hour. Our agony is not unfounded, because we are not entitled to any unemployment benefits, either; no one who has been self-employed in Greece is entitled to any unemployment benefits. (But even if you have been an employee, you only receive 360 euros a month for just twelve months, no matter what your position or income has been; just this same small sum for everyone, and after these months are over, you are entitled to nothing; no help for your rent, no social housing, absolutely nothing, as if you had been self-employed all along.) And what does “self-employed” really mean in Greece? A very large percentage of these people are not really self-employed; they are actually employees who should have been hired but are not, because the taxation is outrageously high for the employers, as for everyone else. This “self-employed” label is leading countless people to death through taxation and by a useless and cannibalistic public insurance organization which is burdening us all with unbelievable amounts of debt. People should have social security and all, but this illegal state of affairs has been very much tolerated in the “Hellenic” Republic for decades now, and things have been rapidly deteriorating since 2008. There is no tax-free threshold in Greece anymore, either, and even the homeless, the growing numbers of people that are being thrown out on the street, are subject to taxation on the basis of a “deemed” or fictitious income which amounts to 3,000 euros per year, a phantom income which is eligible to multiple taxation! Lack is an illusion alright, but a feverishly cultivated one, and those of us walking the talk of our soul are fiercely marginalized. Yes, it is everywhere so, more or less, but we are on the “more” side here; Greece is like Arrakis, created to train the faithful.

      Thank you so much for Tom Kenyon. We have started exploring some writings and recordings of his and have bookmarked his site.

      We do ponder what you have to say, dear Barry; we carefully study your pages and posts; we are deeply moved by all you have gone through in this lifetime and by your putting it to such a humanity-serving use. We have had our share of suffering ourselves and it has brought you our way. We deeply appreciate your investing time in unravelling our frustration, getting in touch with our vibration and seeking to assist us on the beginning of this journey of ours, the duration of which seems to be completely beyond our control. Immersed in this illusion of linear time as we all are, we somehow do believe our journey will be as long as it needs to make a transformative difference for ourselves and for everyone involved.

      We are always open to your good counsel. Both of us having something of the British Isles in our genetic mix and karmic pathways, we drink to you with two steaming cups of discount Assam tea. Though the grass is no greener on any other side, oh how we would love to see the shores and smell the meadows of Albion! Warmest regards, Leon & Plutonia.

    • Dearest Khushboo,
      You realize of course that dragging you back and making you follow us was not my intention. It was your river of joy of a blog that grabbed me.
      I thank you on behalf of Plutonia, too, who cannot develop as a blogger or heal in her own way, because we have only one ancient computer, so you have connected with us through my writings and you are receiving my personal expression of gratitude, but two people here are blessed with your love, compassion, admiration, wishes, encouragement and support. Make no mistake that you are offering anything less; I feel you beyond your words, as I know you feel me beyond mine.
      I am grateful for your soaring spirit and your powerful light-spreading mission, and my heart is with you to help you attract all you want and need on your path and never loose your enthusiasm in our disillusioning world, precious sister. The destructive male dominance in your beautiful country and the suffering of so many sacred beings that you women are, just makes my heart ache, and I am honored and deeply moved by your presence in my life and our working together to restore some balance.
      I wish you all the best for your soon beginning studies. Strength and protection to you always, beautiful Khushboo, happiness and fulfillment in every area of your life.
      Following right back with lots of love,
      Leon

    • Tienny, I hope you wrote this “in my hard times” by mistake; I hope that you meant “in your hard times”. You are in my heart’s prayers list in any case, because life is never always easy for anyone. I admire you for being such a sensitive, compassionate person (a beautiful Pisces Sun, too), a believer in God who makes a difference in our world by educating and entertaining the little ones, and people of all ages. I have watched many of the beautiful animations you create, read your impressive CV, and I have no doubt that your freelance services will be much wanted and highly appreciated in beautiful Singapore. You have my best wishes always.

      Yes, I did find your new blog. Thank you also for your amazing Hand post. What an adorable four-year-old son you have, loving people and all beings, just as compassionate as you, and already protective of his unborn sister whose soul I can feel he is attracting with his love! Keep on taking such good care of him (incredible though how he is relaxing instead of getting dizzy with all this circling around in the same direction you are putting him under! :)) and guiding him together with your husband, because the balance of our world demands the return of the Divine Masculine too, Tienny. You help him grow up to be a man of unconditional love and true spiritual strength, a man who will revere and support all his Sisters under God. Let your husband serve you well, encourage you towards the realization of all your dreams, treat you like the sacred woman that you are.

      If we survive here with all our unbelievable personal and collective struggles, it will also be thanks to your blessings and wishes, Tienny. Our hearts have much in common, and you touch mine deeply. I thank you for being You, I am so grateful that we have found each other and that we are so naturally mutually supportive. Isn’t our world a better place already!

      Nice to know you as my brother in Christ though we never meet. I realize that everyone of us have own struggles and difficulties. May the Lord Jesus strengthens us to enable us to overcome it.

    • Thank You, Tienny.
      But sister, we do meet! Of course we meet! We are supporting each other even more than we could if we were both in Singapore or in Thessaloniki, because, more often than not, the external world is such an obstacle to the expression of our authentic selves, whereas there are no distances separating souls who work and heal together. It is no accident that we meet at such a point where we both seem to be drowning in our lives. I did sense the heaviness in you right from the start, and I knew it was not just the beauty of the image of Only One Breath At A Time that made you “like” me for the first time. I feel you inside my heart, and you know it inside yours that I am not being shallowly friendly when I call you “sister”.

      Let me please explain to you, that the reason I am not calling you “sister in Christ”, is because I do not believe in organized religion, my dear Tienny, because I grew up as a very oppressed, constantly ill child in a very conservative, hypocritical society who have been abusing God’s name, doing all sorts of bad things without ever actually believing in anything spiritual, in any higher power that could bother to punish them for any fraud or crime they committed. You and I agree fully on the essence of true Christianity. I do believe deeply in Jesus as the compassionate Son of God, I have gratefully devoted a few years of my life studying the original Hellenistic texts of the scriptures and translating, as a passionate freelance translator, some very serious and uplifting books about Jesus’ life and timeless message. So you are more than welcome to be calling me “brother in Christ” if this warms your beautiful heart, and of course I will be considering you no less of a true Christian if you simply call me “brother”. In any case, feel comfortable to be yourself with me at all times. I appreciate you and love you deeply as you truly are and as you feel at any given moment.

      If you seem unable to balance freelance work and motherhood, please do not worry and do not ever doubt yourself. They are purposefully made to seem incompatible. There are no “failures” or “mistakes” on your part in this male-dominated world where the higher rights of women are cruelly trampled upon. I work with you for the return of the reverence of womanhood. Please keep on following your heart’s inner calling, knowing that I have immense faith in you and that I am praying daily for you to be strong, peaceful, successful in all your roles and protected.

      Let us pray together listening to the Prayer by Secret Garden under Only One Breath At A Time.

      Bless you, my sister Tienny.
      Love,
      Leon

  8. Dear Leon, it does not amaze me that you referenced the first commentor on this page in your recent comment on my post. I actually looked Tom Kenyon up over the weekend, suddenly feeling an urge to hear the celestial sounds created by him. Have you listened lately? Can you hear them calling? How they try to comfort, uplift and carress our souls…
    Sometimes I get angry, wondering where is our champion? Why must some suffer so much when they deserve blessings unnumbered? Please tell Plutonia that the one true lesson I have learned in all of my life is that no one outside of myself can love me enough to heal my broken spirit. It must be me alone that fills the void. I have to know my own worth and of course I am my harshest critic. She is beautiful, deserving of great love and perfect just as you are. This is all that real love can see. Peace and Light to you today and every moment.

It’s not the traditional prayer where you quietly go in secret and close the door and get along with God and pray; it’s the kind that you shout at the top of your lungs Help! and good thing is He always answers, ’cause He never leaves, and it was inspired out of a real dark time in my life […]”, like the one we find ourselves in. Thank you for helping us help more people than you can now know, and I pray you are shielded from any emotional overload, because it seems that you my dear are picking up through me the combined distress of two different souls (none of them immediate family, but the one crucial for the care of Plutonia’s mother), whose father and mother respectively are now in intensive care units. It is beyond us and we are in God’s hands, so here is from me to you (((a warm, warm hug))) and heaviness gone, sister.
      You are in my heart always,
      Leon

  20. I experienced a grand miracle from eternity yesterday and want to thank you for your constant love and support. My greatest desire is to expand this miracle to you and all others who struggle against the bonds of physical suffering. Our souls must remember the freedom of what we truly are and not what we appear within this dream. ((((Leon and Plutonia))))))

    • Oooh how very very wonderful, Cheryl! Stay aglow precious sweetness! It is through this glow of gratitude that struggles are revealed as true blessings and attract more miracles for all. Your love and support is always felt, reciprocated, passed on to all who want to remember. (((((Soul siblings)))))

  22. Of course. But often mine is cowering in the dark shadows of fear in my soul. I have to nudge it out like a timid child. Sigh…hugs and love.

  25. Thank you for the beautiful post today Leon. It so spoke to me for this week has been a trial by fire. I flamed and singed and wept until my heart could hold no more. The Warrior within me stirred and I had to weild my sword of Justice for change. These battles leave scars upon my peace loving soul and I long to be relieved. I go on because I am blessed in so many ways. Sending love and light always to you and Plutonia.

  28. I dreamed of vampires last night. But it was a female. Of course I have had my own recent trials with emotional attacks from soul crushing forces working through them. I find myself no longer withering but with a new energy and resolve to fight back. I finally believe in my own sense of well intent and power. No one deserves such treatment.

  29. You people are the greatest strength for each other. Hats off to you both for going all through that you mentioned above so positively and being so committed to this cause of sharing your feelings with the world.I think my words cannot express my respect,love and admiration for you both.I don’t think being too far away ,I can be of any help to you but I will surely pray for you both and send you strong vibrations of peace.Stay calm and mentally detached from all the devils around there near you both.Just remember always in your tough times that the final analysis will always be between you and God!:)

  30. I am holding out for the best days ahead in this new year, Leon, although it has begun shakily. This last week was so very draining. I miss hearing news from you as to how things are going there, but you remain in my heart and prayers. I did leave a note for our friend on her blog but have not heard anything else. She is in my heart as well. Hugs and love to you both.

  32. Why is it that what is nearest to our hearts can seem so very unreachable when our minds chatter so loudly?
