Self-awareness and the power of beliefs

by Isira | Published: June 2, 2021

Opinions begin to shape us from the very beginning of our lives. Based on our early interactions with our families, teachers and others, we all develop generalisations about who we are and what our relationship to the rest of the world will be. These generalisations – a collection of stories, beliefs and identifications – form the basis of our own sense of personality and our way of interpreting the world around us. Becoming aware of…

The power to respond

by Isira | Published: April 21, 2021

You will have noticed how the world is seemingly being assailed by constant reverberations of fear at the moment, and that sound is almost impossible to ignore. Fear is perpetuated by the media, making us think about it every day, and we keep it going ourselves whenever we share our concerns with others. So in spite of our spiritual endeavours, we too are threads of fear in this tapestry of world upheaval. Such fears have…

Awakening and Regeneration

by Isira | Published: June 22, 2020

From the time I was a young child, I recognised that the people all around me were deeply disconnected and that this severance of spirit was directly related to the collective conflicts reverberating around the world. Clearly, this disconnection was the root of great suffering and conflict.  As I grew to be able to articulate what I saw and understood I recognised the need for a great awakening – not just within individuals – but…

Love

by Isira | Published: May 19, 2020

This morning someone told me that their experience of love gives them a feeling like falling: that as their heart is moved, it is like falling from a towering building. My response to this was not what one might expect. Spiritually speaking we might think this story of falling in love only represents the ego’s encounter of love rather than the liberation of rising in love. Yet as I really listened and felt into what…

A Silent Power

by Isira | Published: April 28, 2020

A question I hear regularly from spiritual practitioners is: “Why is it so hard to get a constant connection with our true nature when we put in so much effort? I try so hard but get so few results… and the world seems to be getting worse in so many ways.” The central word here is connection. But what are we connecting to? The connection we seek is with our true self. We yearn to…

Is there a hidden gift in the Coronavirus pandemic

by Isira | Published: April 8, 2020

We have entered a time of unprecedented crisis. We have gone from an escalating push to acknowledge the imminent collapse of our environment to global pandemic, the unraveling of our systems – economic, health, social. The warning signs have been with us for a long time. And, here’s what happens when we don’t heed the alarm bells. When we don’t preemptively and proactively seek to change the course we are on. Like a person whose…

The self we are - Transcendant and Imminant

by Isira | Published: March 31, 2020

If what we truly are and what we seek already ‘is’, if our true nature is already the liberated Self, then why do we ‘need’ to do anything? Why are we always seeking? Does this question sound familiar to you? It’s certainly a question I have heard many times. And it is a question worth exploring and understanding more deeply. It is a question that may lead us to a greater embrace of what it…

We are the ReGeneration

by Isira | Published: March 6, 2020

Look around us and we see conflict and challenges in every direction: politically, socially, environmentally; mental health, immigration, the rise of populism, fake news, consumerism, addiction, climate crisis. In many ways it appears the fabric of our world is disintegrating. In the midst of this is the uprising of activism, woke-ism, virtue signalling, dissent, and… some deep soul searching.     It is evident things are not working as well as we might wish. Perhaps…

Hope is the fabric of our hearts and truth of our souls

by Isira | Published: March 3, 2020

“Hope is not ‘out there’ somewhere. It’s here in you, and me. It’s in the fabric of our hearts and truth of our souls.”  Let’s face it, life as a human can be challenging! We can struggle to understand ourselves and the world we live in... yet despite the overwhelming stories we are fed, we are, for the most part, loving, caring, passionate, imaginative beings. It’s hard to remember this in a world that is…

The certain path

by Isira | Published: February 20, 2020

Why do we need a path? What draws us to a path? The moment we are conceived we embark on a journey of potential. The potential within us fills us with vision: a vision of what we are to become. We are told that our highest potential is infinite joy and love; that is the fruit that waits to ripen. As we begin to see this more clearly we become painfully aware that where we…
