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

Why the songbird stops singing: the need to be at liberty to change our minds

When we force ourselves into projects that our hearts are no longer in, just because we said we would do them, our emotions build up in places where they don’t even see light of day; turning into the chronic issues of the next era… 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

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

“Brain” waves and consciousness: the evolutionary imperative

Exploring how “brain waves” are related to human consciousness; how they already impact our thinking and behaviour and whether they are on the verge of changing us all, in a profoundly evolutionary sense with, no doubt, massive implications for our world. 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. Continue reading

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

1000 stories, a single shared ending

What does Sheherazade have to tell us about where we are now, at the end of “1001 nights” of human history? Are we ready to face a new dawn together or do we throw ourselves back into a perpetual re-run of all those same old stories with their oh-so predictable endings? When this particular story came up for me just so powerfully again, having been such a long-running companion throughout my life, I found myself sitting up and taking note of what it had to tell me about how we are holding a whole new kind of an ending in the palm of our unified hands. Both the masculine and feminine aspects have to be prepared to face up to the fact there are no new endings to the stories they have both already heard; they can only move on by overcoming each of their fears (both equally vaid…yet together, they neutralise) creating a brand new story, together.
