Beingness…

c20f196545320f0efecf15cf077d9036

Does not the rain fall


On the silent garden?


Does not the small child


In infinite wisdom whisper


To the spider’s web,


Expecting an answer?


Do not the flowers bloom


Anew beyond winter’s grasp?


Does not the sun journey


From dusk to dawn?


Then who am I to doubt?

TODAY: As I stare out of my window, watching the many birds feed, my Peony in radiant bloom, my plants thriving, looking rich and green, I want to drink from the beauty all around me, and allow it to rejuvenate my entire being. All we have to do is pause, for just one minute, and really take it all in, remembering to thank Mother Nature for her ever changing beauty.

ONE WORD: Beingness

COLOUR OF THE DAY: All things GREEN…

HOW I FEEL:

“If you want to identify me,

ask me not where I live,

or what I like to eat,

or how I comb my hair,

but ask me what I am living for,

in detail, ask me what I think is keeping me from living fully

for the thing I want to live for.”

Thomas Merton – Thoughts in Solitude

18ff6e801b326c66b32f409d8f796a24I feel as if I am newly energised, yet overloaded too, with ideas, insights, feelings, emotions, experiences and more!
Because of this, I am unsure how to put what I feel into words.

I feel as if I have become even more sensitive to various energies; especially weather, bright light, noise, crowds, people and certain foods. Noise and sound seem intensified to me, light feels too bright and to be in a crowd is overwhelming…

As we move more and more into this unknown ‘new way’ of being…be it a different vibration, evolution, or Earth changes? The planet is experiencing Her own evolution and shifting accordingly. Facing Her own imbalances and crisis. Gaia is talking to us loud and clear, but many choose not to listen. The animal kingdom is giving us clear signs, which are often ignored. All this is happening as we attempt to keep our everyday lives ‘ordinary.’

Yet, I am so thankful that I share this planet with you, at this time! I thank the Divine for who I AM…and watch with interest as we all surge forward on a long journey of self discovery, in a year that has been anything but harmonious!

INSIGHTS:

Life is this simple:

we are living in a world that is absolutely transparent

and the divine is shining through it all the time.

This is not just a nice story or a fable, it is true.’

Thomas Merton

What if we quit trying to be spiritual and aspired to be human instead?
What if there is nothing to fix because we are already whole?
What if there was no time to prove ourselves, because we’re consumed with marveling at life?
What if there is no reason to hold back our gifts, because they are meant to be given?
What if every morsel, every glance, every moment and every breath is a miracle of enough?”
by Dreamwork with Toko-pa

THE COLLECTIVE:

‘We are so obsessed with ‘doing’ that we have no time and no imagination left for being.

As a result, men are valued not for what they are

but for what they do or what they have – for their usefulness. 

We must make the choices that enable us to fulfil the deepest capacities of our real selves.’

Thomas Merton

We seek peace in many ways within our being-ness. A walk in nature, or stroll along the beach at sunset…Spending time with loved ones, doing beloved things together. Meditation, prayer and all spiritual practices, regardless of what it is that brings you into that deep sense of inner peace, is vitally important to engage in this frequently.

When you are in a state of peace, you are accessing a sense of who you truly are. This is why so many people are seeking ways to find inner peace, they are looking for, and longing for – their true identity. Know that you ARE a Being of pure awareness and love…

When everything else has been put into perspective, there you will be, in the beauty of your own infinite stillness…Pure awareness, the stillness from which everything else arises, this is who you are. Look no further, begin to rejoice in the simplicity of the miracle that is YOU!

AFFIRMATION: “I AM Divine…”

Our duty is wakefulness.
And the unseen, the unheard, the untouchable 

are what weaves the fabric of our see-able Universe together…

Walk This Earth…

994858_494601803947450_970519760_n

“And so she comes to dream herself the tree,
The wind possessing her, weaving her young veins,
Holding her to the sky and its quick blue,
Drowning the fever of her hands in sunlight.
She has no memory, nor fear, nor hope
Beyond the grass and shadows at her feet.”

TODAY: I woke to a silent morning that felt strangely silent and slow. As I looked out my window towards the Tor, I had a sense that the earth herself was breathing deeply…there is still an air of quiet, the sky shrouded by dense low cloud.

IN ONE WORD: Miracles

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Natures Green…

HOW I FEEL:

‘You have been on a long Journey from the Stars, friend.

Bow before your tiredness now…do not fight it any longer.’

Waheina Ma

Happy in my heart…after going through several deep layers during introspective moments and inner work last week, I have a new sense of acceptance and surrender. A new sense of ‘Home’

PHYSICALLY: Balanced and rested. My body feels content and in this moment – comforted and comfortable, after 3 weeks of fatigue and restlessness.

INSIGHTS:

‘People usually consider walking on water or in thin air a miracle.

I think the real miracle is not to walk either on water or in thin air, but to walk on Earth.’

As I’ve said many times, life is a process…It can never be frozen in a certain place…not now! Our energy must continue flowing, moving and expanding.

Some years just float by with little change, but this year changed me on very deep levels…I underwent several initiations.  Most of the changes were unexpected, some anticipated.

Many of us have been challenged to work with past issues that often, propelled us all out of our comfort zone…this is to allow our bodies and souls to be aligned with the force of Life. Change is necessary and all change is an initiation. For all you are and all you are becoming in the world!

Remember the little things in life too, that are special, but all too soon forgotten. Start a gratitude list, and add to it daily! Life is precious, see it with new eyes, feel it,  taste it and smell it!

THE COLLECTIVE: Have you closed off the feeling part of your Being? Check that out, and begin to allow a slow stream of love to flow back into your life. Allow yourself to release trapped or blocked emotions and know that we are meant to feel! Give love from your heart…and you will receive the love you deserve.

AFFIRMATION: “I am open and receptive to LOVE…”

“It is not so much for its beauty that the forest makes a claim upon men’s hearts,

as for that subtle something,

that quality of air that emanates from old trees,

that so wonderfully changes and renews a weary spirit.”

Robert Louis Stevenson
