Every now and then someone up there sends me someone so divine to meet for half an hour, or even half a minute and my life is transformed forever. Random people – clients, patients,neighbors, acquaintances…. – old, young, male, female – people who are just so likeable. Soooooo likeable. They have a glow around them. A certain purity. A rare ability to stay for long periods of time in the present moment. And a certain magical air about them.
Whenever I do get blessed by the presence of these souls, or they help me just when I need them, I thank and ask God to bless them for their ability to spread happiness. What’s even more beautiful is some of them don’t even know they have such a lovely gift. Such people are angels in disguise.
Think of the angels who you’ve met. Thank them:) And pray there be many more such angels in disguise on our planet. We could all do with a few more, don’t you think?:)
Oh it’s good to be home. Carrying memories in my heart of the people I met and the places I’ve seen. And one of the images that will always remain in my heart is the rock of Delphi, right outside the Temple of Apollo in Greece. Where thousands of years ago, the Sybils or High Priestess sat delivering the oracle to weary pilgrims who came far and wide seeking answers from the other world.
The marble is slippery and the stairway is worn out after thousands of years of use. The ruins stand testimony to a time and a place in history that has influenced the entire world. And if you want to know about the energy, there’s still power and peace to be found on the grassy slopes of the Parnassos Mountain. An energy that speaks of acceptance, becoming a better person, of compassion and tolerance.
As I walked around the rock, I tried to imagine a lady in white robes sitting there lost in her thoughts surrounded by scribes and interpretors who’d translate her cryptic messages to the pilgrims and the travellers who came from far and wide for her answers. I closed my eyes and felt the breeze upon my face happy in the fact I had nothing to ask because I knew nothing. I was content just being there.

How many of you have kept journals or diaries while
growing up? Books that contained your most private of thoughts and most
precious of words that reflected your inner self at its most authentic, pure
and peaceful level.
How did you feel during writing? Peaceful, still
inside, oblivious to the sounds and the chaos around you. And so relieved to
just get the words out.
Your probably didn’t know it then, but you were meditating during the act of writing. Finding the little spot of peace within you. Finding answers. In a place or environment of stillness.
Meditative writing is a form of meditation where in
you can either:
into a meditative state before you pick up your pen or strike the key board and
allow your subconscious mind to direct you.
Become one with your pen and keyboard and make
the whole process one of peaceful expression

How you can do Meditative Writing
To begin keeping a meditation journal, first pick out a nice notebook and a pen or pencil that suits your style. It is important for us to like the feel of the pen, and the look of the notebook and paper. These kinds of things may seem insignificant and unimportant, but they are like the subtle qualities in the food we prepare or the clothes we wear – they reflect who we are, and what our tastes are, so if we choose them carefully, we will be more inspired by them and inclined to write down our daily observations and insights.
Keep the journal nearby, and begin by always writing entries before and after meditation. Even if you just write a sentence, it is a good exercise to get you in the habit of putting some of your feelings and thoughts on the page. Later you can set aside time, just as you set aside meditation time, to write about your meditation practice in more detail. Or you may be satisfied to just write longer entries at the end of your meditation sessions.

Self Love is not One Size Fits All. The journey differs for each individual yet the goal is common. If we all love ourselves, we learn to love each other.
It is not a one time practice. It’s a daily practice be it in the form of prayer, affirmation, meditation, exercise – self love and self care is a continuous discovery of ourselves through the good, the bad and the ugly within us.
Self Love can no longer be ignored. The wounded will always wound the other. Until we embrace and heal our own wounds we will always hurt inside and consciously/unconsciously hurt another. No need for detail here, just follow the News to see what is happening.
Self Love is acknowledging our own toxic traits and working on them.
It’s much much more than choosing the right make up and colour highlight it’s a continuous journey inwards and feeling right.
Though it is important to have “me” it is equally important to recognise that eventually it’s about “we”. The better my relationship with my innerself, the better my relationship with any other being on this planet.
Q “There’s a weird low level anxiety in the bottom of my stomach that’s constant. I’m unhappy because somewhere I feel I’m missing the mark. I should be doing something with my Life. I mean why was I born. I’m only doing this freelance project to make my parents happy but this is not me. They don’t understand what’s happening to me. They’ve both worked hard to reach where they have. When I graduated a few years ago, I started a business to do something for the environment but it failed. I want to start another business around recycling plastic items but I’m scared of failing again. What clues can you give me about my Life Purpose?”
The low level anxiety you feel is your own inner self telling you not to hide behind the screen but to go out to Nature, where you feel happiest, where you are most inspired to make a difference. One failure doesn’t define who you are and what you could be born to do. And clearly it is to do something for our planet….
No one can tell you exactly why you were born. And not every Life Purpose is a vocation. You’ve been given clues all your life. And your biggest clue is happiness. For an indepth look at your life purpose and the clues the Tarot could bring your way, get in touch with me at firstname.lastname@example.org for details
Once a wise man held a seminar to teach
people how to get rid of sorrows in their life. Many people gathered to
hear the wise man’s words. The man entered the room and told a very
funny joke to the crowd. The crowd roared in laughter.
After a couple of minutes he told them the same joke and only a few of them smiled.
When he told the same joke for the third time no one laughed anymore.
The wise man smiled and said,” You can’t laugh at the same joke over and over. So why do you cry over the same problem over and over?. Do something to change it. ”
