A woman’s voice across time

I like to think I’ve swept some grace through these places over the years; doing what grace does best, mixing up the light and the dark so that the line between them becomes softened…perhaps even more radiant. I like to think that in getting closer to finding my wholeness here, against all odds, I’ve increased the odds for all things that I’ve brushed past on my wending way… Exploring the underlying perfection of the places we happen to be in, however those happen to seem.

Who we are in the backwash

Sometimes its as though the flow of universe pulls back abruptly, like when a river or beach is suddenly left bereft of water and we get to see all the unsightly debris of life strewn on the bottom. These moment of so-called flatness, the aftermath of something else more lively, times when there is no wind left to propel our boat, periods when we might doubt our very purpose or our point (though really we are the point) present as a golden opportunity for self-realisation and growth. Like a life-review…a pit stop…time to reappraise. When we work with these times (rather than covering our eyes, going into fear, trying to fill the void with even more cycles of busyness), we get closer to experiencing a place recognisable more by its inherent stillness than by its sense of movement…and in that place, we find ourselves.

A sweeter way to be

Discovering this incredible, natural food source ethically and sustainably harvested in the jungles of Africa by people whose practices are gentle and whose lives have been tranformed (a food which felt like it was transforming my health) prompted me to consider many layers of broader relevance. I considered how we look forward to the future and what practices we use, for instance how we marry the best of traditional and modern methods (not always bowing to the latter…), how we take the quality of life of those producing the product into account and how their personal attributes (especially where this involves handling living things) feeds into the quality and the vibration of that product. Above all, there is something to be learned about how the sweetest and most nutritious things tend to come out of practices that involve the least interference, and bully tactics, of man. This approach to “harvesting” anything feeds into its energetic imprint when it reaches our cells as we eat it; you can literally taste the difference. When we snatch and grab at what we think is ours, the food tells a very different story… Continue reading

The river (always) tells its story

This is just a small aside, an observation that felt too quietly significant to let it just slip by. On my walk along the rivers Whitewater and Blackwater in mid December (very close to where the White intersects with the … Continue reading
