Syria – Fear and The ‘Inner’ War

  Do not read on if you are not ready to be challenged. I rarely watch the news or read the news, but sometimes I stumble upon something happening and it engages me for a while. My house-mate had been mentioning Syria a few times and I had not paid much attention until last night. Without going into details, as the internet is full of it, I questioned him about…

Wanting & Desires – Is ‘Creating Your Reality’ Bringing You Inner Peace?

  Many modern teachers tell us to focus on what we want; to focus on our desires, but what if it is not the object of desire that we want, but the relief from the agitation inside brought on by the wanting. Is this not what we truly desire? Living an unconventional life right now, where I have few material possessions, the desire and the wanting for more than I…

Can You Be A Nobody? Instead Of Trying To Be Somebody

How does this make you feel? Deflated? Sad? Empowered? Now what if I said:  “You Are A Very Special Somebody.”     How does this make you feel? Better, happier?  Well like most of us, you’re probably suffering from somebody-itis. This is the need to be a special somebody. You may think, ‘Isn’t that what life is all about?

Would The Buddha Survive In The West?

FreeDigitalPhotos.net So many of us begin our spiritual quest, a time when we are seeking answers. We want to know the meaning of life and we go to gurus, teachers and take courses. But do we consider that the teachings coming to us from the East may not fit in with our Western lifestyle?

Emptiness – The Path Of The Heart

   It it seems the path of the heart is what we all genuinely desire, deep down within us. Home, Source, God, Creator – whatever we name or label the energy that creates all things has always resided within us. Yet most of us have been so easily distracted by the trappings of the ego, the mind and the desire of the surface self, that we’ve missed out on the…

Angels, Guides & Ascended Masters – An Illusion

Are You Ready To Celebrate The New Year At Halloween?

Many celebrations in the West appear to revolve around Christianity, yet mask many ancient Pagan holidays that have been going a lot longer and then of course I was pondering New Year.

A Fear Of Dying

It is said the fear of dying is behind all fears and it probably is. Yet for ‘me’ it’s not so much a fear of dying but more a fear of not living. I am writing this blog entry to objectify a rather unpleasant series of dreams I had last night. I dream very vividly, write them down and interpret them. This series felt like I needed to get them…

Shadow Totem Animals – Embracing The Fear Of Creatures In Nature

  For many years now I have been looking at my life symbolically and I am a strong believer in life, showing us what we need through the outer reflections we meet across our path.

We receive supply in all forms.” Julia Cameron –~Walking In This World~ This is where I feel the ‘Law Of Attraction’ gives us a helping hand in life.…
