Faith. A powerful word. "You gotta have faith", as the song says. Of course, it's true. Without it, how would you have something to look forward to? How would you trust anyone without faith? We need it in our lives to survive. The hope that everything, no matter what happens in the moment, will eventually turn out okay and there will be a reason and a purpose.
We trust other people and still have faith that most of them are decent human beings. Even when our delicate egos are… Continue

There is freedom all around you. It blows through like a fresh breeze, cleansing the house in which your mind dwells, rippling the curtains as it moves. And a part of you yearns to follow it, to fly out the window, to catch that breeze of freedom and leave the worries and burdens of your life behind.
And this you can do. You can climb out of that dusty attic, full of the relics of your childhood, newspapers piled up to the rafters, old toys discarded on the floor, corners piled high… Continue

The lambs are all being looked after in different pastures, open the gates so they can all come together so the good shepherd can count is flock.

Dreams are messages from our personal, collective, and/or the Divine subconscious to us. Personal dream messages that we receive may not initially be clear and sometimes may require practice to develop insight in understanding them. This is perhaps due to the encryption of messages (use of symbols) by the Divine to by-pass our ego’s filtering mechanism which is blinded to other realms of reality.
Dreams are one of the important tools mentioned in Tending to Your Garden Within… Continue

When you wake up in the morning. What do you expect to happen ? I expect my alarm to go off in the morning. I expect daylight to have arrived. I expect that I can move my body and get out of bed. I expect my breakfast Radio 2 programme to be on and I expect the kettle to boil when I switch it on. Sounds simple but we do alot of expecting without realising it. It's generally unconscious conditioning.
Expectations are ok to a point but when we attach and literally crave and desire… Continue

Happy New Year everyone !
I hope your Christmas was filled with all that makes you happy and that you are looking forward, not back, to a life that is always so precious and full of promise. 2010 is predicted to be a year of us being where we are meant to be and settling into our "groove" in life. Does it feel that way for you or are you still holding back what is meant for you ?
My reason for writing this article is because very tragically and suddenly I lost a dear… Continue

The world is filled with individuals. Not simply individual people, but unique things, experiences, and thoughts. Thus, the idea of achieving oneness, or connectedness with all things, can seem improbable or even impossible. We are surrounded by an astounding diversity of perception that might be called distractions on the path to oneness. But oneness does not mean same-ness, nor does it seek to homogenize the universe. Instead, oneness is an opportunity to see diversity as the palette of… Continue

"Right actions in the future are the best apologies for bad actions in the past." ~ Tryon Edwards
My introduction to war seared its horrible way into my life early on like many of you. Inside of my trembling, small self, ignited a dream for Peace that has simmered throughout all my years. I want to kindle my Dream for Peace in 2010 with your help, so that we can form a nucleus that will permeate the Middle East and grant ours and our following generations the experience that I knew… Continue

We have made it to the end of another year. This time of the year is typically used for goal setting and projecting our positive energy forward. It is also a time to let go of things that are not needed and to create an environment to welcome new things that will serve us in the upcoming year.
In the gardening within metaphor it is pruning time

For many of us January marks a new beginning. This is a time of reflection as we look back on the past year and make resolutions for the new. With a countdown-clock and a sip of champagne we lift our voices pledging to be better this year, to exercise, to eat right, to spend more quality time with those we love….The clock strikes twelve and we turn from the old, with hopeful hearts each of us desiring to shrug off our bad habits and transform ourselves, knowing this is a time to forgive, a time… Continue

I sat under a tree for shade in the hot sun at noon day when i was greeted by a monk walking to temple, Hello i said and he waved to me with a beautiful smile and continued on his way. I thought to myself what a kind man with a genuine smile and pleasant spirit, i arose and thought to myself i shall also go to the temple and maybe i can be happy as this monk was. Walking into the temple i was greeted by chants and prostrations and incense filled the air. So calm was the spirit in this holy… Continue
