Sometimes Grey

Dear Friends We can not expect to always have bright and light sun filled days. Our life does also include the grey days as well. This is both true of the weather and climate of nature and also of our psychological nature. Depending on our psychological mood and even our psychological disposition or character, we may experience more or less grey days. We might see this as our psychological weather, season, even our particular psychological climate. Whether we live under more...

If Just One Of Us

Dear Friends Have you ever paused to ponder, consider and contemplate, what it is that we give our life to? Where life is fundamentally made up of time and energy; what is it that we are dedicating and devoting our precious time and energy to? Whatever that particular thing or aspiration is, have we asked our self how much it is simply for our self or how much it might benefit others, even our humanity? And maybe further; how long will that particular...

Contemplation leads to liberation

Dear Friends  One of the blessings but also blights of being human is our ability to think! That we can think is a great virtue but also a great vice. It can bring great joy but also be a great source of psychological stress and suffering. Maybe that is why the Buddha in his wisdom stated the need for ‘Right Thought’. Right Thought is the second of the eight factors of the Practice Path of the Buddha’s Teachings. Right Thought includes, thinking at the...

Can we go quietly …..

Dear Friends Our life is a process of happenings, all involving beginnings and endings. How we experience such beginnings or endings determines the particular experience and quality of our life. Whilst every beginning has implicit within it an ending, how we approach or feel about these is up to us. A beginning may be experienced with fear and anxiety or with curiosity and excitement. An ending may be met with disappointment and despair or with a resolving and release. The following...

No One and Everyone

NO ONE AND EVERYONE  Dear Friends, its indeed wonderful to connect and share with people that are dear and special to us. For they can inspire us and remind us of what we can do and how we can be within our self. In recognising the worth of others we are appreciating and respecting the worth of our self as part of the whole that is our humanity. Having just spent two wonderful days with my friend Stephen – who...

Life Limiting Factors

Dear Friends   Often, so much of our precious life energy is affected by certain psychological factors. We may find that we are only living and feeling a portion of our life’s vitality and aliveness. Be moved and motivated to find out what is causing this loss of life for our selves. Enjoy my verse for this week. Kind Regards John   LIFE LIMITING FACTORS What is the factor; what are the factors; That limit, lessen or cause the loss Of our alertness and aliveness to life?   What are they,...

Spring Newsletter

Dear Friends I hope this note finds you venturing forth from the hibernation that Winter offers as we move into the warmer weather of Spring. Here in Australia the coming of Spring reminds us that our year is moving closer to its end! Already two thirds of our year has gone, that’s eight months out of our twelve. Apart from delighting in the beginning of some warmer weather (not that it gets too cold here); the blossoming of fragrant flowers, bushes and...

The Life Given Moment

Dear Friends Welcome to the warm of Spring. This new season brings forth the blossoming, blooming and bursting into life of nature and hopefully our selves included, out from the hibernation that was winter. The first few weeks of Spring, call us to our senses as much as they call us to life. To see, hear, sense and feel alive to nature and alive to life. Our senses are only receptive to present moment data, so  we need to ‘come to our...

Real Home

Dear Friends Have you ever wondered about what is a home and what is our ‘Real Home’? This can become a powerful consideration or reflection for contemplation when we think about such concepts as ‘Unconditioned’, ‘Unconditional’, ‘Timeless’ and ‘Boundless’. Take time to pause and ponder my verse on our ‘Real Home’ as a state of ‘No State’. Kind Regards John   OUR HOME STATE IS NO STATE A home is a place where we can feel ‘at home’. A home is a place to feel safe, secure and...

Point of peace …..

Dear Friends So often we miss the ‘point of peace’ which is always and only right – here – now, when we don’t get caught into wishing or wanting something other than what is! Whilst we do need to use discernment and wisdom based judgments in life, when we make ‘judgemental judgements’ we trap ourselves and often others too in frustration and fear. Have a read of my verse below for Mindful Reflection and the development of  your own Life Wisdom. Kind Regards John     OTHER...
