Z Is For ZEN

Yippee!! Today is the last day of the challenge and 26 posts later. I am very pleased that I got this far and did not miss one day and was not even a day late. So today, ZEN. What is Zen?   Zen is a school of Mahayana Buddhism that developed in China during the Tang dynasty as Chán. From China, Zen spread south to Vietnam, northeast to Korea and… View Post


No-thing is certain, the only certainty we have is life itself. Life is beyond all form, all shape or sense of control, it has no limits, it has no edges, it is like the sky itself. “He took his hands off the oars and pulled in the mooring rope. If I make a couple of loops, he thought, I can strap the axe on to my back.  He had a… View Post


Many moons ago when I was into the whole ‘Law of Attraction’ path I had this dream of opening my own new-age, hippy-type shop and I decided it would be called MAGIC HAPPENS. I had seen bumper stickers like this when I travelled around Australia in my year out after University. The Law of Attraction back then made everything magical to me, for I believed magic lay in the dreams… View Post


Happiness – a simple topic right? No! Happiness could be seen as something we all feel and that we all should have as our goal in life, but what if happiness is simply a transient feeling that cannot be pinned down or added to a list of goals in life? We all probably would prefer to feel the ‘positive’ emotions of joy, excitement and peace, but what if a better… View Post

Are ‘You’ Unhappy? Or Is Unhappiness Just Appearing?

“There is unhappiness in me.” A New Earth, Eckhart Tolle It’s so very easy to say inwardly or outwardly ‘I’m sad’ or ‘I’m depressed’ or ‘I’m miserable, but how many of us question these beliefs? This year I published my first book and I also gave up my drug of choice – coffee. Well I still have decaf, but not caffeine for me, not even tea. Writing the book was… View Post

Intuition Is The Whiff Of Coming Attractions

An ALTERNATIVE VIEW of The Law Of Attraction   ‘People who seem successful at The Law Of Attraction are merely in touch with clear intuition.’ As many of you may know from reading my website ‘Kelly Martin Speaks’ I tend to view The Law of Attraction from a different place and this blog takes it one step further. I feel that we do not attract or manifest anything into our… View Post

The Law Of Changing Conditions

Everything changes, but beneath all of that change is an awareness which never changes. I have been consciously a spiritual ‘seeker’ for over 14 years now and I have begun to reach the point of no more seeking. The ego, the mind, is in a state of flux about this admittedly, but I am trusting that asking those big life questions is going to throw a spanner in the works… View Post

Who Would You Be If You Had Received Everything You ‘Thought’ You Wanted?

We all have moments of lack, feeling we are lacking something we want. It could be money, a relationship, a family, a career etc.. And sometimes we feel deeply frustrated, angry and in such a deep state of lack that we could just scream. I had a moment like this just this past week. And after one of my often breakthrough conversations with my best friend Mike something made me… View Post

Spiritual Superiority – It Comes In Through The Back Door

  “The best game ego has is the spiritual game. This game is incredibly powerful because it makes you superior to everyone around you.” ~ Bartholomew The spiritual path can sometimes feel like a virtuous one. What is more virtuous than being with God? You can’t argue with God, so the spiritual journey can cause a huge inflation of the ego. And it often comes in through the back door.… View Post

Embrace The Dark and Light Within You

Can you feel the beauty in moving from joy to sadness? Or is being positive more important to you? What if I told you that focusing ‘only’ on the positive keeps you stuck? I’ve been awake on my spiritual path since 1999, but I went through many cycles in that time. For the first 7 years or more I was enthused by exciting possibilities in life that I had never… View Post
