When You Lose Your Way

When You Lose Your Way

Sometimes the path gets unclear and you lose your way. At that point you have to stop and practice awareness for a while before the path reveals itself again. Doors shut. Sometimes there are delays before the next one opens. Read More

Inviting Space for the Creative Process

Inviting Space for the Creative Process

If the fruit of a settled mind is creativity, then inviting space for the creative process is simply an extension of order. Let go of distraction and order arises. Get rid of the junk and what is leftover is pristine and spacious and possibly worthy of being called art. So here’s the experiment: organise the material objects in your life. Maybe this will invoke the harmonious environment that you need to be able to create your masterpiece. Read More

Asking For What You Want

Asking For What You Want
