What am I?

A very powerful question to ask and to answer is, “What am I?” Explore the relationship between your Spirit, and your physical body, so you know how they are interconnected.  Many years ago, my Aunt went through a journey with breast cancer. After chemo and personal development work, the cancer had gone into remission. But a number of years later it metastasized into secondary ovarian cancer. Whilst her mental attitude was strong, and she believed she’d be able to “beat it”, the truth was that she didn’t.  In one of our many conversations before her death, I asked her what she thought happened after death. Her response was that we’re “just a physical body” and she believed in “ashes to...

Plastic and Rubbish in Nature

As I walked along the beach this morning, I was saddened to see how much human trash was buried in the sand. Normally I’d pick up 2 or 3 items in my half hour walk along the beach – maybe a cigarette butt here or there, or a plastic wrapper from some chewing gum.

I named her Bliss because of her gentle personality. I was comfortable reaching into her enclosure, picking her up without the extra caution of “heading” her (meaning to hold her head). I trusted her. ...

Loving Detachment

We often bandy around the word “Loving Detachment”, but what does it really mean?   There’s the obvious meaning to the term – to be in a state of loving, without having an agenda or attachment to the outcome. But how is this actually achieved? There’s an issue here. Most people are simply “trying” to be loving. They spend their lives “trying” to be good people, to be helpful to others, to be humble and kind.  Nothing wrong with this – like meditation, loving is a choice that those on the path to the Light need to consciously practice every day. And it’s a great practice.  When we are embodying love, that love is like the blood that runs through our...
