Path Consciousness

The term ‘’Path Consciousness’’ is a way of describing the awareness that arises at times of great change in our lives. When we’ve awoken to the possibility of something different from what we’re used to or more in line with what’s good for us. It might be discovering a higher purpose for ourselves that feels just right and brings meaning into our lives. Or it might just be knowing that we are exactly where we need to be in our lives and feel in tune with the various sychronicities that are…See More

Deep Nembutsu.

My daily meditation practice has been and continues to be an important and indispensable aspect of the connection that I have with Amida Buddha. It also helps me to find the balance that I need in my mind to process the challenges of a life of faith. Nembutsu is, for me, a meditative practice in its own right. It opens up latent dimensions of my spirit that connect me to my deeper self. The breath is a conductor for and helps to initiate this process. The words breath and spirit have the same…See More

Not Just About Me.

I had a bit of a rough night last night, which is not unusual, but in these current circumstances contributes more to the weirdness and difficulty of the lockdown than it does to a smooth adaptation. I have been in isolation, due to having some symptoms consistent with Coronavirus for nearly a week. I am asthmatic and have experienced some breathlessness so have taken the precautions laid out in the guidelines. This has been harder than I had imagined it would be. I feel as if I’ve lost control…See More

Fragile Nature

I found this lovely quote in a book about Jizo bodhisattva:



"We perceive the fragile nature of our human life and it makes us afraid. As protection against the inevitable assaults of a human life - separations, failures, abuse, illness and death - we construct a set of strategies and defences called a self. Each time we perceive danger we fortify the defences until we find ourselves trapped and isolated inside its walls. Like a stone or wooden Jizo, we are frozen and lifeless. We… Continue
