Feeling Isolated From Others Can Be A Huge Gift

Being alone can bring such a beautiful feeling of spaciousness inside. Prolonged periods of solitude can be a challenge to the ego. As humans we are encouraged to interact, to socialise and to be with our fellow man, but what happens if no matter how hard we try we seem to be isolated from humanity more and more? This can actually be the biggest gift you gave yourself as a…

2012 and into 2013 – A New Cycle

Wow, as I sit here I contemplate what to say. It has been an interesting year, and one where I had to take a break from ‘Kelly Martin Speaks’. Beliefs, thoughts, come and go. We often do not know what will stay or what will cement itself in our consciousness. Some ideas we hold onto, some ideas we let go of. Me, I have let go of a lot, and…

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.

And as I allowed my life to unfold…

Trust and the Void

  It has been nearly 6 months now since I voluntarily left my last job.  I left because I sensed my redundancy was coming.  Once I decided to hand my notice in all my creativity flooded back to me.  I finally understood what I wanted for my life, what my heart was longing to do.  Travel the world.  A deep part of me calling out to travel, finally I allowed…

Thriving As An Outsider

Being an outsider is the most rewarding experience of my life. For many years I have tried to fit into a mould.  During school years the mould of my peers, during college the mould of intellectuals, as my spiritual awakening happened – the mould of the spiritual elite. AND for most of the time I was always trying to fit the mould of expectations from my biological family. Always a…

The Excitement Of Not Knowing!

Isn’t it exciting to not know? to not know where you are going or what you are awakening within you? One year ago I would have said the prospect of not having plans for the future or ideas about what I am to do with my life would have sent me into panic mode. Not anymore.As I said in another post my life has had a lot of changes in…
