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

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

Dare to become your own master

Once you start to crystallise, you notice how your interest in endless master classes, self-improvement programs and other subscriptions starts to wane. Whilst you want to keep the expansive dialogue going, your desire to “sign up” and even pay for other people’s know-how will probably reach an all-time low . This can feel like you’re losing your self-improvement grip; or you may panic that a side-effect of becoming more embodied is that you no longer seem to be interested in “spirituality”, which used to be your biggest passion. This probaby isn’t so (at all), but there’s an important and necessary shift taking place and here it is… 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

When paradigms rub shoulders

If you are a contrarian, a heretic, a mystic at heart (as those who help to shift paradigms are…) then walk that sometimes solitary path with a smile and stop worrying about acceptability. To quote Jacob Nordby:

“mystics rattle our reality tunnels. They walk a lonely path because most humans are invested in seeing through a fixed belief window. Mystics help us to understand that there is a whole lot more to the picture. Even though we might not understand their paradoxes and metaphors, something in us knows that we are thrilled to be connected to an intelligent system so imponderably massive that our minds cannot comprehend the wholeness of it for more than a split second at a time.” (Jacob Nordby — Blessed are the Weird).

If you have reached the point where you are able to hold that enormity for more than just a split second then, for goodness sake, don’t trade that in for acceptability or inclusion. Run with it, trusting others will follow. Continue reading

Well, Hallelujah!

When we regard our divine aspect as something pristine, we hold onto the belief system that says that we have to be perfect before we even allow ourselves to come close to it, to touch it with idle curiosity, to imagine ourselves to be associated with it, to try it on and, yes, to become it in the flesh…and so, most of the time, we simply don’t go there. It becomes like that “thing” you’re always going to do “one day” when the “time is just right” and all your “circumstances are just so”…and so, like the sunday best you never wear, it stays in the closet, never even looked at… Continue reading

Crystalising

At the weekend, I had a fundamentally life-altering experience as I stood beside the iron-red waters of Glastonbury’s Chalice Well, in its serene garden-setting (which was just starting to bloom with spring blossom and other early flowers); trite though that sounds. … 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? If evolution is starting to feel a bit like an abstract idea with very little foundation outside of your own spiritual practice, take heart…I have a few ideas to share about how you are already making a significant difference to the world.
