What is it you plan to do…with your one wild and precious life?

Nurturing the Gift of Seeking

The Summer Day

Who made the world?
Who made the swan, and the black bear?
Who made the grasshopper?
This grasshopper, I mean–
the one who has flung herself out of the grass,
the one who is eating sugar out of my hand,
who is moving her jaws back and forth instead of up and down,
who is gazing around with her enormous and complicated eyes.
Now she lifts her pale forearms and thoroughly washes her face.
Now she snaps her wings open, and floats away.

I don’t know exactly what a prayer is.
I do know how to pay attention, how to fall down
into the grass, how to kneel down in the grass,
how to be idle and blessed, how to stroll through the fields,
which is what I have been doing all day.
Tell me, what else should I have done?
Doesn’t everything die at last, and…

Think With Your Heart…

‘Are you not tired of holding up all those walls?
Is it not time now, to go beyond the realm you’ve mastered and become new again?
Fear not the rebirthing, after such a glorious, conscious death. Rejoice!’
Alison Nappi

HOW I FEEL: ‘Opening our minds to think with our hearts, defines the form that magic can take in our lives…’ Vasumi

During this month I have been in the process of letting go. I have experienced days of feeling vulnerable, yet also strong, nervous yet deeply aware and in my own power, sometimes there was sadness, yet only very briefly…followed by acceptance and understanding.

From all of this, I hope to discover a new rhythm of life, a divine flow, an inner song…As all of this has been taking place, new doorways have opened and new connections are birthing.

PHYSICALLY: Steady. With periods of wavering energy, followed by rest and restoration. I am having sessions of Acupuncture, and finding this restores my inner harmony very quickly.

INSIGHTS: ‘During times of spiritual transformation along with earth’s evolutionary process – our identity and focus can change quickly and unexpectedly. “

Love is every where and yet we close our eyes, bury our heart and march on…on with what is old, tired, familiar and in many ways, already gone…gone forever! And that is what you most fear.

THE COLLECTIVE: ‘This evolution is a necessary condition of all further scientific thought. But, evolution is also psychic, spiritual and sacred…’ Teilhard de Chardin

As the first month of 2016 draws to a close, let us refocus and prepare for a new month…Breath a deep clear breath and look into your heart to see how your are feeling. I understand more clearly who I am and who we are – Let us each make sure that we continue to shine our Light on everything around us and keep moving steadily forward!

‘You think you are alive because you breathe air? 
Shame on you, that you are alive in such a limited way. 
Don’t be without Love, so you won’t feel dead. 
Die in Love and stay alive forever. ‘
Rumi

Always At Peace

Source of Inspiration

251761_856958211035141_8401298362117228072_n

I’ve learned how to be at peace
in the midst of turbulence
for the serenity
does not come and go
but rather is a steady
pulse that does not
change regardless of what
is going on outside.

Sometimes I get caught up
in a drama and must stop
and listen to this
pool of quiet peacefullness
to remember my soul
remains untouched
and I remain
who I am.

Endless Waves of Transformation…

‘One day we will all be gone from this world, and leave only the traces of our love. 
And that love will live inside us forever, the harvest of our lives…’

TODAY:

“What a soft thoughtful time.

In this illusory gloom, like a night-blooming flower,

let your imagination bloom in a riot of colour.”

Vera Nazarian

Dull, icy cold, damp…A perfect day to snuggle down, stay warm…and daydream.

IN ONE WORD: Awareness

COLOUR OF THE DAY: The colours from my gleaming bottles* hugged me with a warm glow…I was drawn to one with a soft Golden hue…

HOW I FEEL:

“You are being re-dreamed and it’s the body’s struggle to hang on that’s creating the side effects. 

Let your self “die”. 

You are being re-dreamed.”

Jann Weiss

Isn’t it interesting how our flaws and brokenness become the raw materials that draw forth our true beauty?

I can think way back on my own life and remember a number of occasions when I felt particularly “broken and flawed” and someone appeared “out of nowhere” offering love, guidance, care and attention; drawing out the beauty and value that was already there.

b3977ce2f86098f45869a16e77dcc326

Each of these experiences were transformational turning points, but the most profound of all these experiences is when we ourselves give ourselves the love, care and attention we need.

When we love and care for ourselves with all of our flaws and fractures, doing the same for others becomes a natural way of living. Love can, and will truly heal the world!

PHYSICALLY:

“Your heart often feels fear and vacillates from being fully open and then over protected…”
I am dealing with cardiac issues…uncomfortable and at times unpleasant. I am doing the very best I can, with this…But I am positive that; This too shall pass…

INSIGHTS:

“At the end of the day, let there be no excuses, no explanations, no regrets.”

Steve Maraboli

The tides have turned. New energies and people are arriving in my life. I feel open and expectant. I see new doorways opening up around me. You?

THE COLLECTIVE:

“The era of the malevolent warrior is coming to a close.

It is time for the Benevolent Warrior,

for the ones who allow the heart to speak its truth.”

Jeff Brown

I am very aware of the millions of people, moving across the globe – east to west, north to south. Expect the unexpected.

“One must always be prepared for riotous and endless waves of transformation.”

Elizabeth Gilbert

Sue Vincent's Daily Echo

heather

When we had gone, the grass held our shadows
Carved into place by the weight of a moment.
Eavesdropping trees whispered our secrets
To feathered messengers when the sun sought our warmth,
And, finding it no more, lent its own to memory.
The breeze sighed our absence in the emptiness
While the dew mourned with the flowers.
But earth smiled at their folly
And stone remembered.

A Cellular Life #7…

Stuart France

uffington and rollright 088(photo – Sue Vincent)

… Now she was out in space my Soul had turned astronomical on me. I decided to give her free reign, as much rope as she wanted. Enough for a thousand and one hangings…

“The Water Maiden has sacrificed her heavenly wings and impregnable habit for a dip in the river. She is naked as the morn and splashing about like a new born pup in the wending, silver white … She is carefree and happy…
…Radiant as a flying fish or a sated frog. The trees along the river bank transform their branch tips into shimmering leaves, leaves which dance about fruit ripening into bright stars… in a sigh… arching resplendently into the blazing heavens…”

She swayed up close, parted my lips, and entered my mouth…

“The eighth and final star to accost the sky is a misfit, stark and black as the cold dark…
