A never ending string of pearls – Carlos Castaneda

Loving this world, seeing the beauty in everything.
Appreciating every moment as a beautiful, wholly contained,
pearl of eternal nature, this is the world to me.

A never ending string of pearls…. every moment is in and of it’s self a life time,
and when we have affection and let ourselves experience life without expectation…
that is when the majesty of the world opens her petals to us…
And welcomes us home.

The Devil In Me

The concept of my shadow

Puts the devil in me,

Looking back

To find no path led me here.

Making love in the involuntary

Nature of existence,

In circulations of craziness

And misguided mantras,

With wires crossed;

I interact,

Am involved.

Here it is I reside

But a bird in a cage

Ready for the gas,

There’s too little land between me and the horizon,

And these bars are not what keep me inside.

Fixed;

Yet formless,

With only one sky to fill

And not enough suns to call home.

The sound of falling rain

Beating on my skull,

“Wake up little grasshopper!”

And it all ends

As it begins.

108th Time

Siva Lingam – Angkor Wat, Cambodia

You’ve dragged my mind through the dust

And left it hanging,

You’ve trapped me in this clay

In bones that cannot speak,

You’ve marked my edges with light

And buried me in the shadow lands,

To fend for myself,

To seek and cherish

Every truth masked by illusion

And beauty that is real.

I battle with myself

At odds with what I see and feel,

But my inner textures cannot lie,

The ever playful creator

of these unfathomable scenes.

I am divided;

Torn away

From what I really am,

Each time that I open my eyes

You are gone.

I am left alone and lonely,

Breathing my first breath

And dreaming of innocence,

And miracles surround,

And safety,

And the endless warm kiss.

You’ve sent me as a messenger

To myself,

As a shepherd

To my thoughts,

You’ve placed me in your arms

To nurture and forgive,

And open my heart.

Leave me now

To retreat inside

And be unborn again

For the 108th time.

Beautiful Snowdonia – Mountain Photos

Snowdonia from the Isle of Anglesey, St Bodwyns Grave.

Here are some recent pictures of Snowdonia,

just after the Easter snows this April.

The Wisdom of Joseph Campbell

Follow your bliss……………

“If you follow your bliss, you put yourself on a kind of track that has been there all the while, waiting for you, and the life that you ought to be living is the one you are living. Wherever you are—if you are following your bliss, you are enjoying that refreshment, that life within you, all the time.”

“We must let go of the life we have planned, so as to accept the one that is waiting for us.

Find a place inside where there’s joy, and the joy will burn out the pain.

I don’t believe people are looking for the meaning of life as much as they are looking for the experience of being alive.

Love is a friendship set to music.

We’re so engaged in doing things to achieve purposes of outer value that we forget the inner value, the rapture that is associated with being alive, is what it is all about.

Follow your bliss and the universe will open doors where there were only walls.

What each must seek in his life never was on land or sea. It is something out of his own unique potentiality for experience, something that never has been and never could have been experienced by anyone else.

When we quit thinking primarily about ourselves and our own self-preservation, we undergo a truly heroic transformation of consciousness.

When you make the sacrifice in marriage, you’re sacrificing not to each other but to unity in a relationship.

Your life is the fruit of your own doing. You have no one to blame but yourself.

Your sacred space is where you can find yourself again and again.

A hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than oneself.

Computers are like Old Testament gods; lots of rules and no mercy.

Every religion is true one way or another. It is true when understood metaphorically. But when it gets stuck in its own metaphors, interpreting them as facts, then you are in trouble.

God is a metaphor for that which transcends all levels of intellectual thought. It’s as simple as that.

I don’t have to have faith, I have experience.

I think the person who takes a job in order to live – that is to say, for the money – has turned himself into a slave.

Is the system going to flatten you out and deny you your humanity, or are you going to be able to make use of the system to the attainment of human purposes?

It is by going down into the abyss that we recover the treasures of life. Where you stumble, there lies your treasure.

Life is without meaning. You bring the meaning to it. The meaning of life is whatever you ascribe it to be. Being alive is the meaning.

Myths are public dreams, dreams are private myths.

One way or another, we all have to find what best fosters the flowering of our humanity in this contemporary life, and dedicate ourselves to that.

Opportunities to find deeper powers within ourselves come when life seems most challenging.

Participate joyfully in the sorrows of the world. We cannot cure the world of sorrows, but we can choose to live in joy.

The big question is whether you are going to be able to say a hearty yes to your adventure.

The goal of life is to make your heartbeat match the beat of the universe, to match your nature with Nature.

The privilege of a lifetime is being who you are.”

The Science of Miracles – Gregg Braden

How are you today?  I hope you are shining away.

Do you have time for a little inspiration?

This is a 59 minute clip that changes everything.  A wake up call to a timeless, collective awareness offering a link to an underlying field that connects us all.  This mirror, our reality, which reflects what we have become within.

This is an incredible video. Greg Braden explains the nature of miracles and the coming together of the ancient spiritual with the modern scientific.

An empowering programme that leaves me feeling in tune with the infinite potential of human energy to heal and enhance our collective love.

“We can always have the feeling of peace within our hearts….we are part of all that we see…..in the language of those that have come before us, we must become that which we chose to experience in our lives……in that way building a better world.”

Peace and Love to you all X
