Memories from the stones

Sometimes its as though the stones of a place speak to us; sometimes its a feeling of a place that takes us back in time…reminding us of something important, like a memo to ourselves. Continue reading

Staying dry?

We are not infallible on this road to our higher consciousness, even though we may notice we have the wind behind us once we get on our way. Part of that awakening consciousness is to be aware of this hardship and the paradoxical nature of the territory…and notice where we are still vulnerable; where old addictions and fears draw us back to what no longer resonates for reasons such as familiarity or wanting to belong. From time to time, we may need to think into these areas as well as using the heart (the head is not our enemy; it can be our servant…or research-assistant…when we need to be quite clear about something where there are old-trends to be made sense of). Doing “the work” of thinking something through can help support the heart without taking it over. Its just a new way of orchestrating an age-old partnership, with different emphasis, putting us on a better footing to approach a decision openly, without agenda, except to serve the highest outcome.

Leave what you know…

Set sail from the shore. “Paint” in life what you feel from your depths, not your intellect. This will flutter and shape-shift; you’ll never catch up…but oh the journey, the heights, the joy. Scared? Oh yes. Feel that too.

We are the keystone of the bridge

Too often, the well-meaning desire for wholeness resorts to force or self-claimed authority to try to make this union happen; and its left uncomfortable, raw, impermanent and ready to blow-up at again at the slightest pressure. When we craft a version of wholeness as an extension of ourselves, in the way of any true project of the heart, the in-built incentive is already there to remain whole because it feels so good; since it comes straight from our divinity. We are remembering who we really are, outside the arena of halves that is the earth plane, and it feels…well…divine! Continue reading

Taking off those lead boots

Every moment you spend raking over the old paradigm is another moment spent in there. Check in with yourself, where are you still doing this? Its like wearing lead boots!   ***

Taking the philosophical approach…when things get broken

Taking the philosophical approach…when things get broken. Its a very human response to cry a little over broken things. Maybe that’s why we wish so long and hard for a place where this doesn’t happen… Continue reading

Being unlimited

…our next best-answer might lie in the very opposite “thing” to what we believed-in most ardently just a short moment ago…or the thing that was standing side-by-side with “our truth” yet which we didn’t notice since our gaze was so fixed… Continue reading

…like reading a book backwards

…like reading a book backwards, had I been getting it all round the wrong way? As a new layer of realising what presence truly is starts to surface in my experience, some thoughts on fully commiting to be here in each moment. Continue reading

Little wren

All kinds of realities can look as real as anything as we proceed through our human existence; we are all surrounded by them, every day, but when we keep hurting ourselves because of them, we can be sure they are a fiction of some kind…perhaps one that is so long-running that we don’t even remember anything different. They can be as convincing as anything we have ever seen, made all the more potent through the tug of nostalgia and familiarity. When they are a false reality in our experience, and they suddenly dissolve, we don’t go to pieces with that circumstance but, rather, that dissolution is what it takes to end the repeat cycles of self-destruction….perhaps even those repeated across many lifetimes. We stop hurling ourselves and hurtling mindlessly towards things that don’t serve us, in search of what we have fixated upon as “what we need to perpetuate in order to survive”. As is sometimes the case before illusory worlds fall apart (as we are seeing happen right now in our world-politics…), the illusory reality sometimes has to be stepped up to become even more overtly unnatural than ever, in order for us to “get it” and move on. Such a moment is what proceeds the moment of realisation…when we, as it were, wake up to what is real and swiftly find our way back to ourselves.

This tale of extreme optimism was “told” to me by a little wren just the other day… Continue reading

Phases of the Moon

We can lose touch with the thread of “who we meant to be” as the cloth of life becomes ever more wooly with the friction of circumstance and it can be so useful to reconnect with that most pristine of golden fibres; the one that led us to want to be here at this place and time in our collective evolutionary story, contributing our all-important piece to the tapestry. Working with phases of the moon has been such a powerful mechanism for carrying out such an overview; so much so that I want to share what I learned from an extraordinary book on this topic.
