Saying Thank You to the People Who Trigger You

We’re all the same, aren’t we? We find it easy to be comfortable with and like those people who make life easy for us and agree with what we’re doing in life. On the other hand we tend to go quickly into defence mode with those people who aren’t really saying what we want to hear. I just caught myself yesterday feeling a bit miffed at what someone had said to me and then caught myself. Remembering that my whole … Continue reading

Moving Forwards When the Green Light Goes On

Do you find that life has a way of switching green lights off and on as you progress on your path? And do you have a sense that you actually have no control whatsoever over this switching on and off process?  And how do you feel being totally out of control in the process? My most recent green light has been the opening up of my online silk painting courses which I truly did not see coming. But it’s often … Continue reading

Are You Dancing at Two Weddings in Your Life?

After a day of making slow progress in piecing my new silk art classes together, I decided this evening to pull out my acrylics and paint for a short while to just let go and float. I also found some amazing music on YouTube to listen to, a SAT NAM mantra meditation which kept me in a wonderfully chilled out space. I also pulled out my beloved mandala deck and drew one for guidance. One Master. Such a beautiful message … Continue reading

Living in a River of Constant Change

If there’s one thing that is sure, it is that we live in a world of constant change. The person that gets up in the morning is not the same as the one that jumps into bed at the end of an active day. And the same is true of every other aspect of our lives. The endless cycle of seasons, the constant wheel of days and nights, the mesmerising dance of sun and moon rising and setting plays out … 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

Being the Love for Others

It is important in our lives to make space to allow the mind to calm and become still. When we can come to a point of stillness where everything settles, it is from within that space that the truth arises. The truth that we are already all of what we think we are seeking. Out of that beautifully golden stillness arises the knowing that we are that which we seek. Our movement in this world from that quiet space is … Continue reading

The Classical Seven-Course Labyrinth on Silk

I’ve been painting some more bright, silky labyrinths and wanted to share the results with you. The one in these images is the classical seven-course labyrinth, which is constructed from 7 concentric circles around the centre point. There’s an amazingly simple geometry behind this design which I may share with you in another post. It was fun to learn how to draw one free-hand although I did use a template to create these silky images. A labyrinth is not the … Continue reading

Another Beautiful Sunset – Life’s Happening While I’m at my Computer

Oh my! Just about half an hour ago I happened to look up from my computer screen and saw a beautiful sky. I leapt to my feet and grabbed the camera. This is what I saw. Sunsets are so amazing. The colours, akin to silk painting and watercolour technique, look as if someone had picked some incredible shades from their palette and spread them with a large, soft brush across the sky. I slowly went back to what I had … Continue reading

Magic in the Setting Sun

There’s just something magical about the setting sun. I wrote recently in a post about that moment when the last firey rays light up the horizon. But when I stepped outside a couple of days ago to photograph the setting sun again, something quite extraordinary happened. I pointed the camera in the direction of the sun and just as I took the photo, there was a sudden flash as the light momentarily blinded me. I had a feeling that the … Continue reading
