So what, now, is the colour of your soul
Does it change? Will it flaunt a gaudy frock?
Is it young, yet with a lining old as gold?
Does it rhyme like the ticking of a clock?

Do you ever wear a rainbow as a shirt
when you really should have kept things more discrete?
Are you master of a hundred ways to flirt
while looking for authentic ways to meet?

It takes a thief to know a thief
a spy to know a spy;
where is the one who brings relief
to we who all must die?

Oh wanderer, I know you, yet still I know you not,
for your heart’s the heart the beats inside of me:
we who dance, we who sing, we who know not what we’ve got
yet will pay a thousand troubles to be free.

Yes, one who is a mirror of the Light
may readily grasp Herculean tasks,
complete them in the darkness of the night
then in the morning man a stall for selling masks.

Soon the spirits of the air shall be unbound
for the melody has nothing to defend;
the colours of the soul are whirling round
yet it’s gold, gold, gold unto the end.

Nonetheless I continue to have persistent, continuous head pain that varies in intensity and I become exhausted by the least effort so that I am functioning like an invalid incapable of doing very much. There is always a possibility that the whole syndrome is a…

Grace.

“Do we know what it means to be struck by grace? It does not mean that we suddenly believe that God exists, or that Jesus is the saviour, or that the Bible contains the truth. Grace strikes us when we are in great pain and restlessness. It strikes us when we walk through the dark Valley of a meaningless and empty life. It strikes us when we feel that our separation is deeper than usual, because we have violated another life, a life which we loved, or from which we were estranged. It strikes us… Continue

This is a short video of a Buddhist monk and his family. 

It raised questions on parenting and Buddhism - does detachment (or perhaps quietism), as practiced here, lead to demotivation and disengagement with the world around one?

His children find the detachment practised by the monk disquieting. They appreciate the irony of detachment, which is supposed to…

I have recently been made aware of a practice known as Ho’ponopono. Ho’ponopono is an ancient Hawaiian healing practice, based on universal forgiveness, that was rediscovered and popularised in the 80s. A man called Joe Vitale(Hawaiian I think)  became enchanted by the practice after his daughter was healed from an…
