Stirred by the Sacred…

In the highest moments of human intensity, words become silent…


John O’donohue

TODAY: After a stormy wet start to the weekend, the days vacillated between sun and dark cloud…light and dark…Yet, today, I woke to glorious summer sunshine…a delight!

IN ONE WORD: Humble

COLOUR OF THE DAY: I can smell wonderful Green herbs from my little Courtyard garden…Thyme, Rosemary, Mint, Basil and more…

HOW I FEEL: I woke early then enjoyed reading the last 2 chapters of my book – the Biography of Fr. Bebe Griffiths…I found the end deeply moving, which set the tone for my day…reverent, silent, reflective – gently aware of inner changes taking place, appreciating all of life and its lessons. Learning, growing, blossoming. Opening to new ideas, ideals, ways of ‘being’ and realising that all of life’s possibilities are before me…

PHYSICALLY: Settled – moving slowly and gently into my day.

INSIGHTS: Trust and know that your Soul understands, there is excitement and anticipation deep inside you. Stay safe, balanced and aware. This next phase is going to be the ride of our lives!

THE COLLECTIVE: ‘Move forward we say, with a new ease, an ease that allows surrender towards joy and happiness…Keep your mind positive, work with forgiveness for this will take you further towards a new freedom. Expect days of heartfelt emotions – allowing time for self forgiveness and release.’

AFFIRMATION: “I let go of the control of my mental mind. I connect to the love and wisdom of my heart.”

To be kissed by the Mystery. . . stirred by the sacred. . .touched by that Presence that is within us & yet larger than ourselves. 

This has always been my desire, the place where all things begin and where I arrive after each journey. 

For this hunger, I am grateful. 

For the grace that responds, I am in awe.

“It was June, and the world smelled of roses.
The sunshine was like powdered gold over the grassy hillside.”

Maud Hart Lovelace

TODAY: Sun shining. A warm aromatic breeze. The quietude of Sundays…serenading birdsong fills me ears. Bliss.

ONE WORD: Rebirth

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Brightest Green

HOW I FEEL: Serenity of mind…brings a touch of gladness to my day…my heart is full.

I still find each day too short for all the thoughts I want to think,

all the walks I want to take,

all the books I want to read,

and all the friends I want to see…

John Burroughs

INSIGHTS: Promise Yourself …To be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind. To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear, and too happy to permit the presence of ‘trouble’.”

THE COLLECTIVE: “You can’t fix yourself by going somewhere else, he’d said. You’ll always take yourself along.”

AFFIRMATION: “I now manifest the Life of my Dreams…”
