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

Watching the Day Coming to a Close

I was scurrying around, seeing to many small jobs and generally tidying up and creating space. We moved house not so long ago and we spend a portion of each day, seeing to things that really need seeing to. There’s still a lot to tend to. And I was just thinking about how much we had actually shifted. How much we had cleared out to make space for what was to stay. I was walking down the path to the … Continue reading

Getting Up Again After We Fall

I was thinking about how easy it is to fall. In a spiritual sense. Saying how things are and then tripping over the next hidden obstacle without any warning. I see so clearly how important it is to have my thoughts, words and actions in alignment with the Deepest within. And yet sometimes there’s a loud crash and I’ve fallen face first into the next quagmire. But I can see the full reflection the moment it happens. It’s that moment … Continue reading

The Sands of Time were Eroded by the River of Constant Change

I was 16 and was lying in bed  listening to Steve Wright’s Radio Forth late night show. He unexpectedly played a piece I hadn’t heard before by a group called Genesis. Within seconds I sat up and was attentive. This was so different from anything I had ever heard before. A piece called ‘Firth of Fifth’ ( a nice synchronicity with the Firth of Forth where I lived) from their album ‘Selling England by the Pound’. It went so deep. … Continue reading

Getting a Spiritual Hair Cut

It struck me as quite funny how surrendering to divine will can be a bit like getting a hair cut. You suddenly have a flash of inspiration and decide to have a really radical haircut, so different from what you currently have, it’s like night and day. But then the mind kicks in and you end up only having an inch or two snipped. After a short while you realise that more needs to go and so off you go … Continue reading

Taking Full Responsiblity for Your Life

I love taking the opportunity to look honestly at my experiences and see what is really below the surface. Not get stuck in what is happening but see what the ‘message’ is, what I know is true underneath it all. I used to always believe that what was happening was a direct measure of how much goodness or badness was flowing to me in my life. And so when I was having negative experiences despite having been calmed inside and … Continue reading

A Portrait of Womanness

I always said I don’t paint people. No portraits, faces, nothing. Only abstract designs and mandalas. But over the past week or so I have found myself drawn more and more to create a woman on canvas using my acrylics. And today I couldn’t resist. I went up into my attic and pulled out my paints. Without any visual references. Just painting. As it comes. From the heart. I used to be ashamed of my portraits and people drawings back … Continue reading

Time to Let Go Now

It’s been a while since I posted here and today I was sitting contemplating the card I drew from my mandala oracle deck when I had the thought of sharing it with you here. I kept things really simple and just pulled one card for clarity today. This is what I received: Let Go Now. Quite a clear message. It sounds so simple and yet seems so hard to follow on through with. Due to the identification we have with … Continue reading
