Entry 38 Gratitude

We are going through a huge shift globally. Be it in the workplace, at home, within ourselves. If we could put the tools that are always available to us through our reflections, our thoughts, our practices of prayer and yoga which ones would we choose?  ...

Entry 38 Iris

Entry 38 Iris

Early mist covered the river that morning as I walked along its bank. And there it was, the delicate head of a pink iris. As I stooped to touch her ever so slightly, she nodded her head in all her loveliness. Shy and fragile. Graceful and gentle. Time stopped and I...

Entry 37 Certainty

Entry 37 Certainty

Uncertain times, anxious world, one belief. I stand as the rock in the sea, against the sky. Unmoving, solid, firm. Everything passes, nothing is forever. To resist change Is to block life’s flow. Each day that dawns, brings new possibilities. Of love. Of life. Of...

Entry 36 Time for change

Sometimes the feet need to move while the heart cannot. Today, as I sit at the desk and have the rare autumn sun on my back, I feel the need to move on. Start shedding some weight, start afresh. It takes courage. It takes resilience. Even in the face of obstacles, I...

Entry 35 Walk on

Entry 35 Walk on

The earth turns and leaves fall. A divine place to begin a new journey, to leave a part of us behind. As the snake sheds the skin, and the trees shed their leaves. The wild heart beats against the chest, growing in sound, until it is impossible to ignore any more. The...

Entry 34 Rituals

October: Festive times ringing in in one part of the world that was and still is home to me. Remembering times of gathering with family and friends, street food that those days were simpler and so tasty, the strong scented garlands of white tuberose and rose petals...

Entry 33 How to move forward

Tiredness flows down the limbs and joints, draining and sucking life’s vitality until raw bones emerge. It is time to gather the bones and read the signs; that can lead anywhere. The journey has been long. Now we must recognize, and choose our heart above everything....

Entry 32 Empty the heart

Entry 32 Empty the heart

Drops of rain fall from a grey sky, caressing each leaf of the tree next door. Like memories that tumble ever so gently, from the crown of the tree to the lowest branch, that hangs so close to the ground. In the absence of attributes and judgements, I merely watch the...

Entry 31 Fragility

Entry 31 Fragility

We break so easily, like brittle autumn leaves that crunch below the feet in the deep woods. As the trees turn from green to red and yellow, I crawl into the earth to protect our hearts from the storms raging outside. Dust rises from the ground as I fall to my knees,...

Entry 30 Sand dunes

Entry 30 Sand dunes

Walk the path. And when you can’t anymore; Walk another step, and another. Growth is uncomfortable and precious. And time - a single grain of sand. Of all the light there is, the one we don’t see is the brightest of all.   Photo by: thewanderingambivert  ...

Entry 29 Paths

Entry 29 Paths

The path beckons to the distant horizon, I put one foot in front of the other; slow and deliberate, mindful and aware. As if all journeys are pilgrimages. To go to the next mountain, or the next country. Or to go within. Alive in the knowledge that each step takes me...

Entry 28 Waves

Entry 28 Waves

White stars rise and fall in an instance, as foamy pillowy waves crash and recede. I hear the beating of the ocean’s heart - steady and constant, loud and silent. Each moment slides into the next, pouring light and wonder into my throbbing heart. Like a lover’s kiss...
