The Magic of Avalon…

photo 2 copy

“Above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.”
Roald Dahl

TODAY: Its early, the air outside it very fresh and clear. But there is a chill; soft, moist, gentle and silent. The sky is softly pink, the first birds have landed in the courtyard to feed. Life is good. I feel at peace with my world.

IN ONE WORD: Gentleness

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Leafy Green

Glasto abbey:mist

HOW I FEEL: “A new life will slowly unfold…allow it to be so. Let each day bring to you new experiences and most of all, let the love shine through you and radiate out to all those around you.” 
My path is becoming a more deeply spiritual life, each day, quite solitary, but the energy of Glastonbury and ‘free-spirit attitude’ here (I am a city girl actually), has allowed me the time and space to do a level of inner work, I never anticipated…

GOG AND MAGOG

During this year, I have at last fully understood the reasons and the purpose of me moving down from London, to live in Glastonbury, 8 years ago. And you know, if feels as if I have been here for eternity, and then there are days when I feel as if I have only recently arrived, and I am still settling in…Ah, the mystery and magic of Avalon…

“I have stepped onto a new Timeline and I wait there, resting for the out-breath of God…” Ashtara

INSIGHTS: Be aware of your own limits. I feel that we are all, only now, getting our ‘second wind.’ This year has been challenging in very different ways from what we have known and understood. I am sensing that we are finally beginning to regain balance and strength. But, there will be days when we feel overtired, overwhelmed, too weak to go about your usual routine. When you feel this, stop, rest, be kind, allow yourself time to regroup and refresh.

THE COLLECTIVE: Your holy heart, when you begin to feel it fully, will invite you into pain you have long ago locked away. First, your own personal unresolved anguish. Then, the collective pain of all you have forgotten: a history remembered by the stardust in your cells, the rust in your bones. And you will want to close it. You will want to lock it all back up again, but this you mustn’t do, because underneath that is your perfect love waiting for its chance to change your life.*

*Thank you Alison Nappi for sharing thoughts so close to mine in words I could never express so well.

Sunday…Reflecting on Life and Simple Happiness

1c0f2e9f31c28eef139c01b4cbe7ec50

“Look at the trees, look at the birds, look at the clouds, look at the stars… and if you have eyes you will be able to see that the whole existence is joyful. Everything is simply happy.

Trees are happy for no reason; they are not going to become prime ministers or presidents and they are not going to become rich and they will never have any bank balance. Look at the flowers – for no reason. It is simply unbelievable how happy flowers are.”

Osho

TODAY: Lazy, sheltered, nestling in for the day – its cold out there – wild winds whistling, feeling serene, harmony within.

ONE WORD: Harmony

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Crimson

HOW I FEEL:

‘Grace is ever Present. All that Is necessary is that you Surrender to It’

Ramana Maharshi

“Its ok, this Life – it’s actually as perfect as it can be…Not always easy, not always kind, but there is a sense in me now; I know that this journey is meant to take me somewhere that I want to go…today, tomorrow and for as long as I AM here” Ashtara

INSIGHTS:

Evolution and all hopes for a better world, rest in the fearlessness and open-hearted vision of people who embrace life.”

John Lennon

Sunday is the perfect day to spend quality time with those you love and care about, or perhaps take ‘alone time’ to walk, to sit, allowing yourself to day dream, to write and to think. You may sleep-in and nap later…

Whilst you reflect on your own life…Your hopes and dreams, your goals and desires…your weaknesses and strengths and where you find yourself today, on your path of Life. Embrace this day with your heart…

THE COLLECTIVE: “The ability to be so alone here, to be safe and alone, to be able to do what ever one desires on any given day…To become engulfed by intense energies and the ‘fall out’ of that, personally and collectively…what an experience! What a journey, what an honour and a rich intense learning in every possible way.” Ashtara
