Sharing enlightenment through words and pictures, and a new brand for a better future for us all
1 – The existence of nature.
2 – The nature of existence.
3 – Consciousness.
Three things in one. Three rings in one.
I studied Ju-Jitsu years ago. Through Ju-Jitsu I got into eastern philosophies and ultimately discovered Bushido which was formative for me. Through it and further studies after a significant meditative experience many years ago, and after a little discovery, I came up with this, my own little philosophy.
Since I discovered Russian Wedding rings nearly 20 years ago, I’ve worn one. Holding it in my hand at the time, its symbolism struck me immediately! It is three wholly independent rings, inextricably and beautifully linked. To me this perfectly represents my own philosophical appreciation of life and how and why we are all here. It is my own little icon, my own little totem.
My endeavour is to share knowledge of each thing, and the whole, through my poetry and photography and through information on and links to other pertinent sites.
The Existence of Nature is clear all around us, for all to see! The fact that we can see it, and live in it, places it first of the three as it is undeniable, irrefutable and unavoidable, but perhaps equally taken for granted! Consequently, it is worthy of refreshed reverence.
The Nature of Existence, or our appreciation of it, is something that changes over time as we develop and advance as a technological and scientific society. That’s the body half of the Mind-Body equation. It is within the mind that the true nature of existence can be experienced. This Mind-Body frontier is thee scientific frontier, bringing physics and philosophy together. Quantum physics brings a lot to bear on understanding the relationship, despite it being equally famous for being so difficult to understand!
Consciousness is foundational, lying right in the middle of the Mind-Body equation. It appreciably links the other two and arguably creates them. Consciousness is us and our gateway to awareness, self awareness and enlightenment.
Thee Absolute is the higher order state of being – transcendental, universal self-awareness encompassing all of the contents of each of it’s three constituent aspects. It is everything. It is all.
This website is where you can find more information on each of these and share as I try to delve into what enlightenment is, and Thee Absolute is through some of my poetry.
You can read my self titled poem “Three Rings” here.

ENLIGHTENED AND SUSTAINABLE
Sustainability is just as important to Thr33 Rings as Enlightenment!
Providing you with quality, sustainable products and promoting sustainability is just as important as the urgent message at the heart of the words, pictures and art.
The 3R brand is a message that we want you to be part sharing and becoming for a new, more hopeful future for us all and the precious planet that we are lucky to call home.
Shamefully, around 85% of all textiles produced by the fashion industry end up in landfills, making it a major contributor to environmental damage. Worse than that, one in every five items produced by the fashion industry reaches landfill without even being worn once.
As Thr33 Rings works with on-demand suppliers, we only produce items we get an order for, avoiding textile waste from overproduction. Our printing partner’s high-quality printing tech creates almost no wastewaters and uses less energy than standard industry printers.
