Rediscovering true health

by Isira | Published: June 4, 2019

We live in a fast-paced world and we all know that this can have detrimental effects on our health and well-being. Stress and illness can result if we allow ourselves to be swept along with the frenzy of life. But it doesn’t have to be this way! Leisure is still one of the most vital factors for a life of healthy well-being. One of my favourite regular activities is to take a walk along the…

No other but Self

by Isira | Published: May 7, 2019

At the heart of all I share is this one constant truth - that there really IS only one Self - the one life - and that each of us is an aspect of this one.However, according to most peoples experience, and at the most immediatelevel, there is an apparent struggle to recognise the relevance of each‘individual’. I have also stated that liberation and/or awakening is not about an isolated individual or for the individuals…

Blessed be the Little Things

by Isira | Published: April 2, 2019

Faced with a rapidly changing world it is not unusual that many seekers still get stuck on the big things: the challenges we face personally, the goals that appear unattainable, the critical state of the world – so much needs to be done. As a consequence, I am used to seeing many seekers caught in a trap of their own mind’s defeat. This is a natural outcome when the mind spends so much time thinking…

What Is Truth?

by Isira | Published: March 30, 2019

Everything in the universe, by its own nature is truth. It is as it is. How simple and peaceful life can really be when we comprehend this. Yet the human nature seems to want so much to define and make concrete concepts of what is ‘true’ or ‘false’. This is at the core of dualistic perception and is the basis for a great amount of our conflicts. As such we live in a world of…

Is Enlightenment Desirable?

by Isira | Published: February 5, 2019

I raise this question because it seems evident that the idea of a rift between ‘worldliness’ and the ‘spiritual journey’ is still very much alive. Many people experience the same conflict: the notion it has to be one or the other. Most people feel so deeply trapped in the worldly cycle that they can’t help but recognise the suffering it causes them. This, of course, generates a very powerful desire to be free of this…

Why are we always seeking?

by Isira | Published: December 21, 2018

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 certainly is a question that I have heard on many occasions – and it is a question worth exploring and understanding more deeply. It is a question that may lead us…

Why the story matters

by Isira | Published: November 30, 2018

Those who are wandering the spiritual path are well aware of the framework of the ego. Put simply, the ego is a collection of stories we have become attached to. So attached, in fact, that the real sense of self – and life – is lost under a constructed identity. But these stories shape our lives. They determine either our health and well-being or demise, so it is a worthwhile and important area of examination;…

Wake up and be conscious

by Isira | Published: October 29, 2018

Do you often feel like your life is out of your control? If you answer yes to this, which if we are honest, most people would, then you may be looking for: consciousness! Most people live life day in day out feeling like a mouse in a wheel that they have no control over. Our world lives in such a fast pace and high demand to fulfil the roles that society insists on that most…

The challenging times we are living in

by Isira | Published: October 5, 2018

Namaste, In programs I have frequently referred to the fact that we are currently in times of great challenge - individually and collectively. There are great forces at work - all as an orchestration for our evolution. This means many are being faced with intense challenges - all of which ultimately serve to expose whatever is misaligned with Truth, and to bring consciousness to those parts of the self that are to be evolved into…

Nature – a place of awakening

by Isira | Published: September 28, 2018

At the heart of all life, deep in the natural order of our world, is an inherent power and presence. It is unquestionable. Where life abides in its most natural state, there is a flow, a pervading stillness and ceaseless vitality. This is why I speak often of the human need to be connected with nature. Not only is it essential to us – for it is the very source of our life – but…

Tools of growth

by Isira | Published: August 21, 2018

Fundamentally, negative feelings are an inner signal for us – alerting us to the fact that we need to change the way we are approaching our life situation. And this can happen even when we have positive focus in our life. Why? Because we are constantly growing and must continually expand the way we think and respond to life. That means even with positive thinking we may be approaching a situation with an out-moded model…

Health, re-discovering our whole self

by Isira | Published: April 18, 2018

Hello everyone, One of my favourite regular activities is to take a walk along the seafront. It’s a leisure that most of us enjoy, but many of us can’t seem to achieve. Why? We either feel simply not well enough or live a life of denying ourselves such wholesome activities, in spite of being aware of the simple values a small stroll and fresh air can bring us. One of the locals I pass along…

At the heart of Change

by Isira | Published: March 28, 2018

Our world, humanity, society and our own individual lives are subject to constant change. And now, more than ever it seems, is a time of very great change. Large movements of populations, climatic and geophysical upheavals, global unrest and national conflict are great challenges to us all - individually and collectively. At times like this it can seem as if everything we are and everything we have is either being, or under threat of being,…

What has money got to do with spirituality?

by Isira | Published: February 5, 2018

Let’s talk about money. It’s a topic that most often hits an uncomfortable chord. Especially when it comes to spirituality. Isn’t it worth wondering why? Why, when money is one of the tools we have adopted within our life? In fact it is one of the most central tools that occupies us every day and is intrinsically woven into every experience we have. First of all, let's take an objective look at this thing we…

From Relationships to Relating

by Isira | Published: December 5, 2017

The single most vital key that will provide the way forward for a better life and a better world is relating. To understand this more deeply it helps us to recognise core issues that are manifested due to the misperception of separation: the perceived disconnection from spirit/source. This sense of disconnection underlies EVERY issue we endure as individuals and as a human race. We feel dislocated in ourselves and in life. We have a distorted…

The place where true fullness begins

by Isira | Published: September 4, 2017

The ‘fullness’ we seek in life is not found in the business and fullness of our world. The resource for our true fullness is found in the gift of emptiness. This emptiness that the sages have spoken of for eons is really not something so mystical and unattainable. However it does require us to go to a different place to meet it. It requires us to go to the cave: the cave of consciousness. It…

What exactly is awakening?

by Isira | Published: September 4, 2017

Awakening has no exact definition. This is because Awakening is about a process of shifting from the unconscious states of the ego driven identity to a conscious and experiencing state of Self as the eternal awareness and Oneness of all life. It is also because it is a state in which we transcend definition and become pure being. In the ego driven state a person experiences life dominantly through the constructed identity and perception of…

Truth

by Isira | Published: September 4, 2017

The quest for truth is as old as humanity. Throughout the ages we have been driven by a deep yearning to know and understand what life is really about. We have asked: what is THE Truth? What is the Truth of my life? What is the True meaning of life? What is the True path? Interestingly all of these questions are driven by the mind. This very motion is linear and assessment oriented which means…

The sexual human

by Isira | Published: September 4, 2017

Those of you who pay any attention to the media tabloids would be well aware of the vast array of articles on the topic of sexual offences. Although it is constant and common to hear of these issues in our society it is very rare for us to take a closer or deeper look at why we see so many issues of perversion, violation and obsession. Fundamental to all human issues is the inherent lack…

Self-awareness and the power of beliefs

by Isira | Published: September 4, 2017

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: September 4, 2017

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…

Beyond fear and suffering

by Isira | Published: September 4, 2017

That our life is filled with challenges is natural: for life is a process of growth. All growth involves change. Along with change we experience a sense of tension as our being goes through a transition from one acquired state to another. This applies at every level; physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. And this involves what we call pain. Actually, ‘pain’ is simply a current and state of energy that corresponds with this transition. Yet…

A feminine emergence

by Isira | Published: September 4, 2017

You, me and every other thing in the universe is made of the same stuff. Energy. Everything we are, everything we experience, express and do is the result of a dynamic play of energies. Within our humanness is the dynamic of two fundamental polar energies: masculine and feminine. Like positive and negative currents, their interaction is at the very core of all life force – the spark of life. This dynamic interaction is constantly in…

Balancing emotions

by Isira | Published: September 4, 2017

One of the common definitions for emotions is ‘energy in motion’. I’d like to expand on that. This energy in ‘motion’ arises as a result of us sensing and expressing. Therefore emotions are the moving energies of our being and through which ultimately life as a whole is being sensed and expressed. If we look deeply into what we are, we discover nothing but energy. Consciousness is energy. Mind is energy. Form is energy. The…

A change in leadership

by Isira | Published: June 23, 2017

All of us have been watching our world shaking and trembling under the tyranny of unconscious egoic measures and the weight of a few corrupt leaders. Perhaps now we are being shaken into awakefulness. It seems that, not only are we recognizing the need to wake up and to change our views but that we, the people, need to command leadership that truly represents a broader vision and common ground for a world of greater…
