Beauty in the things we cannot yet see

School Of Blue

It is in the night sky, lit from distant galaxies, telling us our origins.

It is in the morning after the storm. It is in the unexpected.

A butterfly lights on the sill. A coat of many colours.

We are drawn towards skin-deep, bauble beauty, but it withers

in a different company where our wildness is set free.

There is beauty in a pause, a presence, just the breath

on a crisp blue-sky day, everything still.

A robin hops into sight.

It is in a wisdom expressed; as Thomas said,

If you bring forth what is within you,

what is within you will save you.

It is in the longing to be a raft for those who wish to cross a flood;

a lamp for those in the darkness.

And the awareness that comes to you – we don’t need to understand everything –

because there is beauty in the…

Value Yourself

Wit. Wisdom. Wonder...

Let go

Of all the excess of life

That has stuck to you

Pare it down.

Remove. Trim.

Give away.

Walk away from sounds

That drown

Your own voice

Reject words

That are untrue

Coming from you.

Listen to your silence

Look at what’s left

When all is gone.

Befriend that residue

Cherish it;

Treasure it.

Aloneness

Is not to be foolishly grieved;

It is to be intelligently valued.

Don’t compromise the time

With yourself

For some base company.

Know where

True fulfilment lies

Value yourself.

Rules for a Beautiful Life

Coaching Skills International

We all want to have a beautiful life. But a beautiful life doesn’t suddenly appear. It is something we develop day by day, over time, through choices that we make and attitudes that we allow.

And the good news is these are under our control. This means that we can also choose to implement some changes. We can stop, turn around, or we can alter our direction whenever we decide we’d like to do things differently.

How to Get Over Past Mistakes

Coaching Skills International

the past is heavy.PNGEveryone experiences failure and regret. But we can’t allow that to dominate our lives. So put the past behind you, and decide to move on. Here are some tips that can help with this.

1. Remind yourself that everyone makes mistakes, does things wrongs, and has moments of regret. There are no perfect people out there in the world. In that sense, you are just the same as everybody else.

2. Remind yourself that “that was then, and this is now”. You can’t turn back the clocks and change what you did, but you can be a different person in the future.

3. Allow yourself to experience and name the feelings you are struggling with (regret, guilt, shame, disappointment, embarrassment, sadness, etc.) Then make the decision to let those feelings go. In the end, it’s unhealthy to be attached to them.

4. Ask yourself what you can learn from the…

A Sound Solution

Theology of a Newfoundland Housewife

Do you notice how loud the music is getting in stores, restaurants, and other public places ? In addition to an increase in volume, the messages blasted by the ungodly music are becoming increasingly vulgar and vile. Is this a form of persecution of Christians, do you think ?

I was becoming super annoyed by the unwanted music we are being forced to listen to in public places, and I reached my ‘last straw ‘ moment in the waiting room of a medical professional.

Excessively loud music was blaring, and a country crooner was sending the message that he really loved his girlfriend, but he also loved his wife, and he didn’t know how to tell his wife that he as leaving her. Yikes !

Thereafter I visited an Audiologist, and told her about my dilemma. She recommended that I have a pair of musician’s filters hearing protection made.

Healing Via Mantra

Passion For Truths

Not too long ago, I was divinely prompted by a divine being to organise a group healing session. One of the activities suggested was the recital of the Medicine Buddha Mantra. I was given the answer that the true purpose of that recital is about sound healing, even though the mantra has its own meaning. The verbal recital of it would apparently help bring about harmony in the vibratory of our body.

When I consider that science has revealed that everything is energy in its core nature, I suppose our cells too would have its own vibratory rate. Hence, to anyone who is willing to explore, one could listen to the above sample video and chant the said mantra. At this juncture, I wish to clarify that this post is about healing and not in any way about promoting religion or dogma.

(Note: As for my friends and myself who…
