  • The truth within us

    Namaste, Within the heart and mind of each of us there is a deep desire (even if secretly!) to attain the quality of peace, freedom and love. We aspire to reach the pinnacle of our expression as a human being - alive with spirit, feeling home and at one with creation. Whether we want to refer to this as Enlightenment, to know Truth or simply to be fully alive, it is a goal worthy of…

  • The power of paying attention

    Namaste, At the heart of everything I speak about and offer is the invitation to enter into deeper awareness: to become living awareness. The invitation beckons you to bring all that has been unconscious into the light of your conscious Self. In essence this requires attention: to be present in the moment - to pay attention to the streams of thoughts and feelings that interrupt your ability to simply BE present. Without first developing this…

  • The responsibility of happiness

    Happiness is my motivation... and it is yours too. I do what I do because I want to share happiness. I do so because I have true happiness in every moment. And I know that this happiness is within us all and at the heart of every person’s quest. The desire for happiness makes us all the same. And if you are to consider your motivations in every moment, if you look a little deeper…

  • Let your energy flow

    As you most likely know, everything is energy! All the events that occur in our lives and the lives of others are interactions of energy. Our entire experience is made possible because of the fluctuations of this great field of energy we call life.   The part of this energy that we have come to know as ourselves is often vibrating at different levels. Our whole mental state is in fact influenced by the different…

  • Now that I’ve got your attention

    This is an attention seeking post!  Well, that is actually the truth. However, the question is a matter of attention for and within you. The more you can master your own attention the more you will master your own life experience. This is why I teach breathing methods as a foundation for awakening - it is the easiest and most direct way to strengthen the quality of attention.  Benefits of Attention:  When you develop your…

  • To Believe or To Observe

    Am I expressing Truth or belief? As we grow in consciousness we become active seekers of Truth. In the quest to know and understand Truth, interesting questions arise. And, many seekers come to this same enquiry: Am I expressing truth or belief? One enquirer recently asked: ‘My partner and I have been discussing beliefs and thoughts... I was saying something that felt to be from my heart, to be a truth from somewhere higher than…

  • That is not a life. This is

    What a dilemma we are in. We all recognise the destructiveness of our lifestyle - yet most struggle to break free of the consumer cycle. Humans are addicts. Self destructing ones. The irony is we know it, but we still deny it, ignore it or blatantly continue it.  WHY?? Because we have emotional attachment to whatever is familiar. Why do you think advertising agencies bombard us from every direction with emotional campaigns that convince you…

  • The Challenge to be Perfectly Here

    One of the greatest challenges humanity faces is to let go of what we THINK creation is and allow ourselves enough curiosity and openness to SEE existence as it is. However, this is not just a challenge –it is critical if we are to regain a conscious response and avert impending planetary and social disaster. Letting go of what we THINK is key to our ability to respond with greater insight. It is only when…

  • A very human, deeply spiritual need

    When we take a close look at our most inherent needs we discover that, other than food and shelter, our most common need is love – to love and be loved. We only have to look at our hopes and fears for confirmation of this. Just scratch the surface of our beings and we find one of our biggest – the fear being alone. This runs not just at the surface of our humanness, but…

  • Rediscovering true health

    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

    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

    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?

    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?

    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?

    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

    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

    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

    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

    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

    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…
