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? After 15 years of spiritual questing I have been coming to some very different conclusions for…

It Takes All Forms Of Love – Quirky Alone Day

So, it’s Valentines Day in the western world today. Many couples sharing gifts, romantic candlelit dinners and gestures. But how do single people feel about this day? The commercialism of the day itself has encouraged misery among single people.

Instead we…

Our Human Need To Help

Where does our need to help come from as humans? Do we help when we see someone hurting or in trouble? What is help?   When does help become unwanted or intrusive?   Sometimes my own help comes from a heart-centred place, a place where I feel someone is hurting and calling out for help on some level. Often though I tried to help when the person had not asked for help. I…

Speaking Vibrantly – Kelly Martin Speaks

Happy 2012 everyone. It has felt like a very long time since I last posted. Lots of changes, lots of developments and some shifts in my communication style.   A couple of days ago I started posting videos on my You Tube channel. This week I have received my first ‘dislikes’ on my videos ever. And it is all because I decided to step from behind my comfort zone and…

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…

Alone – Aloneness – Lonely – Seeking One’s Own Light

I wanted to write a short update for my blog. So how am I doing right now? Well – letting it all unfold.  It is all I can do right now. It’s funny because all the things I used to do, all the behaviour or the choices I made, were choices made to make me feel better via feedback from the outside world. And as I allowed my life to unfold…

Looking For Love In All The Wrong Places

On Being Raw, Authentic, Controversial And Challenging

After grappling with something this week I recognised that it is time to be proud of my uniqueness. I browse around countless other sites on-line, blogs, websites, You Tube channels, Facebook pages etc etc.. and I sit and wonder: ‘Why do they have so many followers? What do they do that I do not?’ And so it began, a thought process. Mike helped me understand some of it this morning. He said when…

Are you bossy? Controlling? Manipulative? Arrogant? Patronising? Sarcastic? Naughty? Rebellious?..   When you beat yourself up for these qualities did you know that you may be imposing limits on who you are?   Have you considered that certain personality traits seen as flaws or weaknesses simply require your loving acceptance? Have you ever met a person who doesn’t give a damn what anybody else thinks of them? ‘Flaws’ and all?…

Painting My World – Looking Out The Window At The Canvas Of Life

From Starbright Creations (copyright2011) Do you realise how much you paint this life you live? While I followed the law of attraction, create your reality, for a long time, nothing has come close to explaining the meaning of life until recently. As I mentioned in my blog entry  ‘On Being A Victim – The Larger Perspective’, this reality of form is an illusion of the senses. The picture is far wider, far bigger…
