Thich Nhat Hanh’s Mantra for the Manifestation of Pure Love

“Dear One, I know that you are suffering. That is why I am here for you.” These words of Thich Nhat Hanh are taken from his book “True Love – A Practice for Awakening the Heart.” This is a mantra which we can speak from the heart to manifest our true presence for the other. When I read these words again this morning, I was deeply touched in my heart. I really know the truth of this.  I know what … Continue reading

New Horizons – Art as an Expression of (Wo)Man’s Indomitable Spirit

I love how we, as humans, have the capacity to tap into that wild, raw, primal energy of a stormy sea when confronted with seemingly insurmountable challenges. It’s as if we adjust the sat nav for distant, unknown shores and set sail, regardless of the outcome. We take on an almost unforgiving movement, striving relentlessly towards distant horizons. The salty spray, our breath, leaping high in the air as we lunge forwards, drawn magnetically by the gravitational pull of the … Continue reading

Are You Married to Truth?

“Illusions are like mistresses. We can have many of them without tying ourselves down to responsibility. But truth insists on marriage. Once a person embraces truth, he is in its ruthless but gentle grasp”. – Rabazar Tarzs Do you resonate with this quote? I must admit, it’s one I have a great resonance with. I know from my experience, that once I put my foot on the path of committing to living the truth I awakened to, there was just … Continue reading

Thoughts on Nisargadatta Maharaj and the person.

“The person is a very small thing. Actually it is a composite, it cannot be said to exist by itself. Unperceived, it is just not there. It is but the shadow of the mind, the sum total of memories.” – Nisargadatta Maharaj – I love this quote. And just wanted to share with you some simple thoughts that arise when contemplating this. I am amazed at how something that we imbue with so much importance is completely of a transient … Continue reading

Heart Connections

A couple of days ago I did a short reading based on the card I drew from my deck for the day. It was Heart Connection. If  there’s one thing I’ve come to realise about my heart, it’s that I can’t pretend to have it open some of the time, and then close it down at other times when it suits me. Either my heart is wide open or it’s contracted and closed. It’s quite simple really. And it’s a … Continue reading

Creating Art in the Coldest Spot on the Planet

We’ve just come out of a really cold snap – one that has had Edmonton ranked as the coldest spot on the planet with temperatures below -40 Celcius with real feel a few degrees below that too. It has been quite a challenge, but ideal for ramping up the heating and get creative indoors. Here are a few photos I took during this time. This first one was the view through the window in our front porch. I really love the … Continue reading
