Revisiting the Venetian labyrinth

What can we learn from the dying stars of the previous era; those places that thrived without apparent rhyme or reason due to a particular mix in their qualities? There’s much to learn when we come to realise that certain places asserted a particular energy (first) and then humans came along and interpreted that energy through their actions, expressing them as what looks like human life, human decisions, human preoccupations, human mastery. So what made people settle in this swampy, mosquito-ridden place, for instance; what made them just so determined to be here that they exercised all their powers of ingenuity to build where there was almost nothing to build on, to keep innovating, starting over from scratch when the waters reclaimed all their efforts, learning from their mistakes in order to build a city that became an empire and a spiritual, cultural, commercial tour de force of the separation era? What can we take away from that, on the inside, once we come to understand that the global mind is a mirror-image of the human mind, with all the same bells and whistles? My experiences of 30 years visiting this extraordinary place thew up some answers for me earlier this month. Continue reading

Some would have us all as neatly trimmed and uniform as a garden made up of identical topiary but there’s a whole other tree that we’ve forgotten about (you could call it a Tree of Life); one that is so vast and other-dimensional (though ever-present) that many have fogotten how to look up and see it there… Continue reading

Living life intensely

Being prepared to go where we know-not what the ending could possibly be is part of this paradigm change; we have no choice but to face the sheer impossibility of a future, measured by old standards, in order to hold space for something brand new to emerge (in fact this lack of a predictable ending is the very clue we are getting close). Faced with such a reality, we have no other option but to experience life intensely, moment to moment, navigating by its rapidly appearing and exploding stars scattered across a vast universe of sensations… Continue reading

Loving all your differences into their highest form

You’re very different to anyone else. You know it, you’ve always known it, you may have even hidden it, buried it deep and dark, masked it in a variety of ways, tried to heal it, medicate it, to soften it, … Continue reading

Synergy realised

We can encompass the paradox of freedom within design as soon as realise we are the living proof for it. I’m not giving you much more of a taster of this post than that since its also too balanced in its wholeness to pick apart… Continue reading

No doubt

How are you feeling, a little overwhelmed, frustrated by the way the world is and like you don’t know how to make a difference?

My journey with AuraTransformation

If you ever struggle to stay in your body, to remain grounded, or if (when you do) you feel so much that you are quickly depleted of energy or overwhelmed…and if you have come so far, done all the work, cleared so much, become so aware and yet your body and spirit seem to spar or pull apart in opposite directions, instead of staying contentedly together… this post might be for you… Continue reading

Three winged tales for the year end

I’m going to share a trio of stories from my last day of the year; things that happened quite organically, though there seems to be a distinct thread of bird-magic running through them. The first relates to a new artwork … Continue reading
