Living to Let-Go

LIVING TO LET-GO We often focus our time energy and attention on getting, gaining, having, holding and becoming. Yet there is that which can be gained or known by none of these activities. This is the peace that results from relaxing, releasing and letting-go! This is expressed in my poem that follows:   At the end of the moment, minute, hour; At the end of the day, the week, the month; At the end of the year, the decade, the life and the life time; When...

‘PEACING’ THE PRESENT

‘PEACING’ THE PRESENT So much of the precious time and energy of our life is mis placed and mis directed. We spend our precious time and energy caught in disappointment and despair about ‘the has been’ and in fear and frustration about ‘the might be’! Yes, caught in the pains of the past and the fears about the future. However, life is always and only just here and just now. So if it is peace, calm and joy that we...

Science, Psychology and Spiritual Wisdom is helping us to see and know the true nature of things and not be fooled or led astray by their surface level appearance or seeming solidity and advertised satisfaction.

When the Mind

WHEN THE MIND Love is a fundamental energetic connection that motivates and moves most creatures in various forms and functions. Love is a particular way of connecting to another person or thing. The idea that ‘I love’, creates and compounds the idea of self and other, the idea of two, of ‘I’ and what I love. This is ‘Duality’. There is a love, even a love affair that we are all involved with, that is so close so us that we...

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...

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,...

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...
