Staring At The Sun

I walk out of the studio, blowing warm moist air onto my freezing hands. I watch the breath of mist curl upwards, and I stop in my tracks. The sun is utterly mesmerising. It hangs like pure white flowing fire, against a silver, silky backdrop. For a moment it looks like someone has hole-punched the sky, and God's eye was going to peer through the papery ceiling of the heavens and peek in on us. We think of the sun as a spherical ball of fire hanging out, millions of miles away from the earth in the dark empty vacuum of space. Yet, right now, it is shaping my experience of this moment.  Stunning.  Beautiful.  My day is made.  It...

Your Unique Way Of Being

  Put yourself into a moment when you really show up, and you are giving your gift. Just consider, Where are you?, What you are you doing? Who are you with? What can you see hear, taste, touch and smell? How do all of these sensations make you feel inside right now? Place attention on that feeling inside you.Now, using your Imagination, make all of these textures of experience what you can see, hear, feel, taste and touch… make them become transparent. Like glass. Even the flavours and the smells. Place your attention back on that feeling inside you. Notice, as you do so, it becomes even more real. It flourishes. It grows. It becomes so real it's as though...

Chaos and Order

  Take a look at this continuum: Extreme Chaos - Good Chaos - "X" - Good Order - Extreme Order Where would you say you are? On a good day? On a bad day? What is your centre of gravity? Where would you like to be? Where is the world? Our society? Write down a short answer to each of these. And now what is that sweet spot in the middle? X = FLOW Flow is good. The goldilocks moment where conditions are “just right”. This is how life thrives, in goldilocks moments when the conditions are just right for the whole system to thrive. If we 10,000 miles away further than the sun, life would not be here as...

SoulScaping - When My World Changed

You think the world is one way, then something happens, and you realize its another way. The firm ground of reality you have been standing on all this time, turns out to be thin ice. Cracks appear. The Idea doesn't hold the weight of what you are now seeing and experiencing, and you slip through. Bubbles burst. Empires fall. Scientific realities are proven false. Lies are told and believed. Some are like this: "Magic doesn't exist. God isn't real." "I thought I was loved, but now my heart is broken.","I thought you were a good person, how could you do this?" All of these have a way of eroding the edges of what we hold dear. Its hard. It happens...

SoulScaping - The World I Am Creating

The psyche can be infused with the beauty of aliveness, that seems to come from another dimension altogether. It can feel like being touched by the grace of God. It can be a realization of the stunning wholeness of everything by looking at veins in a leaf. It can be seeing the pattern in the information around us. It can be a moment when we are "out of our minds" and see suddenly see, not just all the pieces fitting together, but we see the whole pattern. Then your psyche is infused with the flowing gold of creativity. Your psyche becomes the gold that gilds these fragments into one gloriously alive whole. This is more than "seeing the world as...
