Focus on only that which is Eternal!!

A course in Miracle teaches: There is no order of difficulty in miracles. One is not “harder” or “bigger” than another. They are all the same. All expressions of love are maximal.

To me, the effect of a miracle is that it affects you for eternity, you can never forget it and why would you want to, there the title I have chosen for today’s blog. Gabrielle Bernstein , in her latest book : Judgement Detox points to the fact that anytime you shift your perception from fear to love, you have committed a miracle in your life: Link to the book.

How does the world relate to miracles, whilst researching it I got to see there are many perspectives over the times, here’s today’s offerings:


1. At what age did you stop believing in this joyous miracle in our early years?


2. I have recently taken on a 12 month challenge to reduce my weight to 80k, it has  been over 6 years that was what showed on the scales and it is 20k away. A practice I have taken on is to walk for at least half and hour everyday. It is amazing what you notice in this time of reflection: When Life was a Miracle.


3. Helen Keller certainly gave her best given the circumstances she was handed in life. The world appreciated her for it.


4. What of we were all able to access the magic of the morning sun as it hailed a new day: Magic.


5. As we age we often forget this!!


6. Amanda Jane Bradley doesn’t jump out at you on google. You get the choice of a bartender, a pro-lifer and eventually the author of Oz at Night, bingo: That’s what friends are For.


7. And this is what Google came up for Himanshu – A person with the biggest ego ever found in this world. Will always try to be better than everyone in sight, even the person who teaches him something. A himanshu cares a lot about his future, in fact, that’s the only thing he cares about! A himanshu displays various sudden acts of movement in the face, like sudden twitches of the eye and nose, and often blames the movements on a “cold” or his glasses. Himanshu is always the best at everything he does. Even if he isn’t, he thinks he is.


8. When you transmute the dark, that is when miracles occur: Royals.


9. Miracles fill the body not the mind, where’s your heart located?
10. Mother Teresa discovered the magic and miracle of service and went on to provide it to thousands of people: Happy.
11. A hand written note these days is a minor miracle but so much more powerful than an SMS.
12. Edwin created the Christian Mens Network, he also played trumpet in a street witnessing band for the homeless. Through these actions he wished to have men see the goodness of life: Expectancy.
13. William Hazlitt was an English writer, drama and literary critic, painter, social commentator, and philosopher. He is now considered one of the greatest critics and essayists in the history of the English language, placed in the company of Samuel Johnson and George Orwell. He is also acknowledged as the finest art critic of his age. Most of his work has been out of print for decades.
14. The miracle of unconditional love: Falling.
15. I know people who are festival junkies, who then complain about the lack of community when they return to normal life. Its time for them to let the celebrations begin on a day to day basis when most of the miracles happen.
So, make it a practice to celebrate your miracles on a day to day basis, even if it might just be surviving the day or as mighty as leaping out of a plane.
The tunes today are from the quirky named Emir Kusturica and the No Smoking Orchestra, The divas Alicia Keys, Dionne Warwick and Lorde. A short set by DJ Rickochey, Coldplay and the hour long version of Pharrel Williams Happy.
Namaste until next time, my dear friends.

I will be better Tomorrow!!

When you read the title of this blog does it make you think you are having a bad day or having a great day and tomorrow will even be greater? Danielle writes that conscious optimism is the soul of service. On page 123 of her magnificent book, White Hot Truth there is an awesome poem titled Nothing Changes Without Me:

Sometimes, my heart is so open

I can’t tell if it is a gaping wound

or a portal for everything that ever was and ever will be.

I’ve learned to Love the beautiful terror of eternity,

and scenario planning for how shattered I could be

if the dark things got tall

and if I fell backwards in my forgetting of the Light.

But you can’t fall backwards in Space,

You can only only only ever unfurl.

More than anything,

I’ve wed the certainty that nothing changes without me –

not coal becoming diamonds

not fertilizing eggs

or migration patterns

or medicine dreams.

And what I had thought was a net cast to me from a higher God

is actually strands of Truth and filaments of desire

that I have tied together with my own two hands.

And in precious encounters, I tie what I know and want to you,

so we can ride the winds of wonder.

Here is the link to obtain the book: White Hot Truth.

So let’s have a look at how optimism lessens the suffering of others:



1. Just because you can’t see it doesn’t mean it’s not there.


2. Cute take on words: Everybody.


3. A great quote from the 33rd POTUS. Scholars, starting in 1962, ranked Truman’s presidency as “near great”; since then he has been ranked between 5th and 9th in historical rankings of U.S. Presidents.


4. My neighbours upstairs gt their lemons from a tree up the road that overhangs someone’s fence. Hey, free lemons: Mrs Robinson.


5. The perfect 10 gymnast from the L.A. Olympics

Mary Lou has kept providing the soul of service for her now 49 years.


6. When you fall down, you can do the former or the latter. The optimist is a latter type of person, also there are other to help you get up: One More Time.


7. An optimum list that will get you through your day when it feels tough.


8. Born deaf and blind Helen Keller certainly lived a faithful life. The first deaf-blind person  to obtain a Bachelor of Arts degree in the United States, very little stopped this amazingly optimistic soul.: Stronger.


9. From the worlds favourite philosopher, Ms Unknown comes an analogy between pessimism and optimism.


10. His Holiness, Tenzin Gyatso, The Dalai Lama, whatever you want to call him, without his optimism the world would be a much sadder place: Be Optimistic.


11. Robert Michael Hensel was born with the birth defect known as Spina bifida. He is also a Guinness World Records holder for the longest non-stop wheelie in a wheelchair, covering a total distance of 6.178 miles. Now that’s optimism multiplied tenfold.


12. If you haven’t taken it on because of….., begin it now but don’t do it the way that has stopped you before: Solving Problems.


13. Helen Keller again, she was an inspiration to the world in the way she gave from her fullness, even though we would consider some of them disabilities.


14. Because everyone loves cat and dog drawings: We love Cats.


15. Definitely, time to delete that file.

I love Danielle’s definition of “Waking Up” –

We all need to wake up

so we can do the work

that needs to be done

to live in a world

that we espouse to want to live in.

The music this time comes from  Ingrid Michaelson, The Lemonheads, Daft Punk, Kelly Clarkson, The Dalai Lama, Brent Cobb and Bemular. Different styles, but all enjoyable.

Namaste until next time, my dear friends.




Let not your Love become Attachment!!

A mission statement for a Blog by Lissa Rankin:

“We are committed to inviting you to explore your truth, knowing you are loved, safe and nurtured. We believe that true healing comes from loving and nurturing both ourselves and others as whole beings. When we own all the disparate parts of ourselves, we tap into the divine spark within us, allowing us to release limiting beliefs, overcoming fears, and enjoy our lives more fully. Once we are in touch with our own divinity – shedding our masks, revealing our authentic selves, and being accepted just as we are- we can see with “magical eyes,” gazing beyond the masks we tend to wear to see the unique and special humanity that lies within us all.

By engaging with our community, we hope you will feel inspired, get motivated to bring your authentic self out of the closet, and take steps that bring you closer to health, healing and inner peace. If you have lost your mojo and feel you have little to give, we welcome you with no expectations. If you have lots to give in service to those in need, we invite you to share your gifts. Chances are good you are all of the above – sometimes seeking, sometimes giving, always enough..

Regardless of where you are on your personal path of awakening, we welcome you. Let us bear witness to your journey, knowing that while each of us walk a unique path, we walk it in good company.”

Lissa’s book The Anatomy of A Calling The Website., is worth visiting at least yearly as it contains so many profound gems about being on purpose.

But first of all she suggests you need to give up attachment, what do we say about attachment across the airwaves and through time: Here is a selection I have chosen to illustrate it:


1. This is one I have struggled with over time, that the answer lies within not externally. Working on it daily.


2. Why do we become flustered when the world started operating in a different way to that we know it should be, this is what happens when we hold on too tight: Holding on to Broken Things.


3. What did Buddha mean by this, much to ponder in 7 simple words.


4. You can’t should’ve done something. Gold: It was a Good Day.


5. The Inner Universe, that’s where the healing lives and lies.


6.  When we stop waiting to reply and genuinely listen to others, Its amazing how many of our judgements slip away: Crippled Inside.


7. How often do we battle with these thing in our lives – The truth is, unless you let go, unless you forgive yourself, unless you forgive the situation, unless you realize that the situation is over, you cannot move forward.


8. Judgement often feels chaotic, It’s not your task, bring on the calm: A Thousand Years.


9. Love me a few of Pema’s wise words, get her books , they are magic.


10. Here’s a memory test: Out damn spot, think High School: Time to Let Go.


11. Lots of practice here, heart and  mind, methinks.


12. Do we have the courage to give up that which has become toxic for us, I did it with alcohol over 3 years ago, feel so much better: Don’t Stop Believing.


13. Surfs UP, which are your favourite emotions to surf, which put you in danger. Perhaps it’s time to give up your attachment to those waves.



14. This is the  one thing in life I wish for more than anything else, to fly unaided. I have not been willing to give up everything that weighs the possibility down: I’ll Fly Away.


15. The field of all possibilities: Has anyone ever reached this blissful state, or would it be so scary that we would implode?

Why is it difficult to detach from the beliefs and judgments that belittle  us? Perhaps as Craig Hamilton says in his Integral Enlightenment series ” The ego  as the part of you that has a need to see ourselves as a particular way” has a lot to do with it. Daily exercise in detaching what we know to be true sounds a great way to discover how to empower the purpose we were put on this planet for.

Namaste until next time , my dear friends.

Your Flaws are Perfect!!

“Through Prayer and Meditation I create a ripple effect of peace in the world” – Gabby Bernstein.

I remember what fun it was to skip stones in country dams when I was young. The ripple effect they made was amazing, it gave me and my friends much joy at the time. What actions do you take that create a ripple effect in the world? Remember, whatever action you take makes a ripple effect, so let’s make them great ones. I was surprised by how many different quotes there are on the effect, lets see what they are:


1. His Holiness’s ripple effect is possibly the largest in the world. Loved by so many across the planet, when he speaks, billions listen and act.


2. We need to realise that the casting of that stone do not just affect you, it causes many ripples in many lives: If You’re out there.


3. Whatever version of God you subscribe to, they know you are part of the plan and are waiting for you to cast a stone and create your ripple effect.


4. Martial Arts are based on this premise , very similar to the effect caused by your stone skipping across the lake of your life: Kung Fu Fighting.


5. And it would be superb if all of our ripples where as beautiful as this image.


6. In fact, every action does this. I think we forget sometimes: Actions speak louder than Words.


7. Great set of ripples in my opinion.


8. From little things big things grow, that’s what the ripples are about: From Little Things.


9. What new idea will you drop in the pond of our Universe today?


10. Not sure if this is Billy Cox, bassist in the Jimi Hendrix Experience or the motivational speaker with 15 million followers but I like spreading the ripple effect of kindness through the Universe: Lean on Me.


11. Thats right, a lasting effect.


12. And learn how to fly on the way down: Confident.


13. Don’t cast it if you aren’t willing to back it up.


14. And this answers what we should listen too when we are about to cause the ripples of our life: Try Everything.


15. And the final comment by one of the largest ripple makers of this century, Elon Musk, Dream that your ripples to make a difference.

Writing these blogs is one of my stones cast in the water, from the statistics they make ripples all around the world.

Namaste until next time, my dear friends

Energy is Everything!!

“In every moment the universe is conspiring to bring me toward Right-Minded Thinking and the energy of Love” – Gabby Bernstein.

Love, it has its inner energy source that shines on you. How do you let it shine on your community, is it a hard slog or does it spread beyond all boundaries? If you spread love you attract people, things and situations that match the energy  you are putting out. As you improve yourself and raise your vibration, the more you will receive things that are  beneficial to your well-being.

What wisdom has the energy of love drawn to it over time, let’s have a look:



1Sister Corita, nun, activist and artist. Her artwork, with its messages of love and peace, was particularly popular during the social upheavals of the 1960s and 1970s. As both a nun and a woman making art in the twentieth century, she was in many ways cast to the margins of the different movements she was a part of.


2. Have you ever seen one of your friends and thought, they’re beaming, they must be in Love. Works best when you include yourself: Shine on Me.


3. I don’t know how many times I have watched Jim Carrey’s great talk on this exact subject. Have a look – Fear or Love.


4. Our second Catholic entry. Pierre was pilloried by the Catholic church and made to leave his teaching position and sign a statement withdrawing his controversial statement regarding Original sin. He believed in the power of Love like that other fellow Jesus did: Across the Universe.


5. Love life, not things.


6. You notice when people emanating love enter a room, they light it up: When you walk in the Room.


7. The big man, just say I: used to raise your energy level every few minutes. Love is the ultimate form of it.


8. Starseed, that’s what they say we all are at the source: Starman.


9. I love, Love is the tool, so Yummy.


10. Have you seen the picture of Sai Baba pouring diamonds out of his hands, here it is: Sai Baba.


11. Inside itself we create the energy of Love.


12. Time to get infected by the power of Love: The Power of Love.


13. Its the glue that sticks it all together. L-O-V-E.


14. Another way of saying it that is universally recognised, is simply Namaste: Mahamantra.


15. Which 750,000 will you counterbalance, Thankyou.

When we lean towards love, we are led.

Namaste until next time, my dear friends.

Change always comes bearing Gifts!!

”  People spend too much time finding other people to blame, too much energy finding excuses for not being what they are capable of being, and not enough energy putting themselves on the line, growing out of the past, and getting on with their lives: J. Michael Straczynski

Wayne Dyer said all excuses are misalignment. Words like “difficult,” “risky,” “can’t,” “too weak,” “too dumb” and “too complicated” do not apply to the divine mind. I  urge you to reharmonize with energy that can do anything and everything, for this is your original nature. The title I chose is based on my mentor’s statement that everything is a gift, that we just choose which one to assess as positive versus negative. Yet everything that happens to us gives us an opportunity to look at our dreams and how it affects them and what are we meant to learn from it on the path to them.

So why does society love making excuses, what does it say about this maligned practice that  holds us back, let’s take a journey:


1. My friend Emeli runs workshops to get people to discover their Why in life, she says that until you have discovered this that your what you do will never truly satisfy you.


2. Which side of the coin do you live by?: Come and get It.


3. Choose the coloured path, It’s where your dreams live.


4. Get that crayon out and cross those excuses off your list of thoughts for the day, let’s go: I’ve got no Excuses.


5. A prime example of when there is a cost when excuses take over from the original intent.


6. Actions deliver,  words do not. They quickly become excuses and lies if the actions do not match them: Bring me to Life.


7. It’s time to stop saying I would if…….


8. Miraculously every person has the same 24 hours in a day, what you get done totally goes down to what matters to you and how hard you are willing to fight for it: No Matter What.


9. Another way of saying it is, Fake it until you make It.


10. Dreams have a beginning , a journey , and a completion. We should not assume that it is going to be a smooth journey the whole way: Ain’t no mountain high Enough.


11. They are called your dreams, that’s why they live in your heart.


12. Remove these excuses from your vocabulary and your dreams will have a chance: Get Up, Stand Up.


13. The world’s greatest philosopher, Unknown reminds us to return to the source when the doubts creep in.


14. The longer you keep saying it and not delivering with your actions, the greater the chance of this happening becomes: Little Lies.


15. Earl Nightingale  was an American radio speaker and author, dealing mostly with the subjects of human character development, motivation, excellence and meaningful existence. Nightingale was the author of The Strangest Secret, which economist Terry Savage has termed “…one of the great motivational books of all time“.

So how will you pass your time, going for your dreams, or listening to the reasons why not? It’s your choice in the end.

Namaste until next time, my dear friends.

Note to Self : Stop Expecting!!

” The reason many people in our society are miserable, sick , and highly stresses is because of an unhealthy attachment to things they have no control over.” – Steve Maraboli

Luminita Saviuc states that in every instance of transformation, the transformative insight was always one that led her to letting go , surrendering and giving up, in the best sense possible. And perhaps out of all the self-sabotaging habits of thought and behaviour, the one that’s far too common is our desire to control aspects of our reality that are actually beyond our control.

I can speak from experience that staying in control can be costly, as I have experienced several mental health periods in my life which I fought seeking the help that I needed to restore the balance in my life.

So how do we relate to control in our society. let’s take a peek:


1. This reminds me of the Activation work where we get in touch with our Essence in life I do with my mentor Arion Light: Link to the Source.


2. The history of  psychedelics dates back tens of thousands of years, it is only in the past 100 years that there has been scientific and counterculture interest in these substances. They were originally used to obtain transcendental experiences: Purple Haze.

control 3

3. This is one form of control it would be a great thing to let go of, refusing to get back up.

control 4

4. The soul is harder to hear when you are controlling what enters your heart: Keeping Your Head UP.

control 5

5. To achieve this those mental controls of fear and anxiety must go.

control 6

6. When the controls are gone, we can sing relax don’t do it: Frankie sings it.

control 7

7. And yet, there are profoundly powerful acts of control that we need in our life.

control 8

8. We often lose control when we just don’t want to wait anymore, and say that’s enough. Remember that what people talk about on their death beds is what they regret usually, not what they celebrate: No Regrets.

control 9

9. What would our lives be like if we were so in control that we were incapable of giving back?

control 10

10. Sarah Dessen is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of over a dozen novels for teens, which have received numerous awards and rave reviews. Her books have been published in over thirty countries and have sold millions of copies worldwide: You’re the one that I Want.

control 11

11. Ah, the women who introduced the term The Work to the world. Another pearl of wisdom: Let Life live you – It does anyway.

control 12

12. Hard to drive your car of dreams with four flat tires, isn’t it.: Flat Tire.

control 13

13. Or even not knowing what you don’t know!!

control 14

14. A way to make sure that people stop relating to you from a position of power: Stop Complaining.

control 15

15. A possibility if we set our controls for the heart of the sun.

” So don’t be frightened, dear friend, if a sadness confronts you larger than you have ever known, casting its shadow all over you do. You must think that something is happening within you, and remember that life has not forgotten you; it holds you in its hand and will not let you fall. Why would you want to exclude from your life any uneasiness, any pain, any depression, since you don’t know what work they are accomplishing within you? – Rainer Maria Rilke

Namaste until next time, my dear friends
