How social media messes with the very point of art

Does an artist, really, have to stay on social media to survive, or, do they sometimes need to detatch from social media in order for the artist in them to survive? Hmm, discussing this one outloud… Continue reading

Feedback

Receiving feedback is an entirely natural and healthy part of life but the quality of our lives can depend, quite majorly, on where we tend to seek it and the reasons why… Continue reading

Cosmic romance

What does the almost universal, in-built, longing for the big finale, the happy moment of consummation, tell us about ourselves and the fabric of reality? What is it that we really long for? Continue reading

Stop using the path and you will surely lose it

It takes Nature no more than the blink of an eye to take away what she giveth; unless we indicate, quite clearly, just how much we are interested in keeping it, how much we appreciate what we have “in care” from her bounty…only then does she relent. Continue reading

Living in the everywhere

How much does our ingrained concept of time being strictly linear perpetuate the sense that “past” or even “future” is some remote, inaccessible thing with a volume of space keeping us apart from it? How much healing and other potential do we miss when we adhere to such thinking?? Continue reading

Here to hold light

He/she/they

There is a collared dove living in our garden, we call her/him “Bob” and we love him/her with a vengeance. Really, there is a pair of doves because they were, and are again, a couple, though only one is ever … Continue reading

Coming home

Where are my edges, where does my sense of self stop and other begin? What feel like the non-negotiable boundaries required in order for me to feel safe and how does modern life or the demands of my work encroach on that? How did the quieter life of the past year make me feel (better or worse; some introverts have thrived)? What does that say about my desire to keep working/living the way I used to before lockdown? What are my true priorities in life and what do those say about where I feel most relaxed and comfortable to be myself, can I make my life fit those priorities better? Is there more inner work to be done so that I can feel safe regardless and not be at the beck and call of outside circumstances the way I am? Do I have all the resources I need to feel safe unconditionally like that, even as I stand here in my socks, or do I lean too much into external factors, both for comfort but therefore also as a source of trigger when things “go wrong”?

The power of life review

Healing your relationship with the past can be one of the most powerful, least avoidable, steps on the road to achieving wholeness and deep healing, not to mention such powerfully regenerative feelings of love for, well, everything “just as it is”, as I am currently finding out…By the way, JUST REALISED today is my 10 year anniversary of writing this blog! There could have been no more apt post than this one. Continue reading
