The stuff I think of

Who Am I?

When you know that your mind doesn’t work in the same way that other people’s minds appear to work, you have a choice.  You can either ignore it and get on with life, or you can worry away at it trying to find an answer.  Either way you, and probably those around you, are going … Continue reading “Who Am I?”

Broken Families

Things happen in life that are wrong.  Families argue, drift apart or explode in arguments and drama.  It doesn’t matter the reason – the story. What matters is that unless people can come together and talk openly and honestly, the story will not change.  At least, not for the better. The stories we tell ourselves … Continue reading “Broken Families”

I Believe…

I was thinking about Queen Elizabeth II and the news of her passing, and how I had ‘met’ her when I was a teenager.  Actually, I hadn’t really met her, as in having a personal conversation or a handshake,  I’d just been one in a crowd of people when she came to our town to … Continue reading “I Believe…”


A few days ago, I did some introspective work and came to the conclusion that I am in a waiting zone.  I have arrived at a point in my life that I have been seeking for a very long time.  A time where I can follow my own desire to begin some serious Spiritual study.  … Continue reading “Drifting…”


I’ve always been, in many ways, a ‘physical’ person.  As a child it was ballet, as an adult I became an elite athlete.  That young person lived in a fantasy world of stage lights and dreams; the adult ran up mountains – just because.

If you over-esteem talented individuals, People will become overly competitive. Lao Tzu. Tao Te Ching. Chapter 3 These two lines , written millennia ago, are very applicable to our current society.  It appears that competition and striving to be ‘top dog’ is built into our psyche.  At one time it may even have been a … Continue reading “Idols”

Dreaming Big

 I had a dream.  It was a dream that has been with me for most of my life – and that is a lot of years. I met a man with the same dream, but his was much bigger than mine and we became friends.  I didn’t have the faith that would allow me to … Continue reading “Dreaming Big”


When we see a spider – especially a big one – most of us will jump into freak-out mode.  There is something that just so ALIEN about the spider and all those legs…  I had a visit from Spider a few days ago.  A middle-sized Huntsman spider, about the size of the palm of my … Continue reading “Spider”


“How can we justify being focused on spiritual and philosophical pursuits when there is so much pain and suffering in the world?“ This is a question asked by my Teacher, Essence Ka tha’ras. I love her questions. They usually come when I’ve just got up in the morning and am still stumbling around trying to … Continue reading “Focus”
