Transmutation

It struck me, while watching the steam rise off my pan of hot water earlier, that the universe, in physical terms, behaves in the same way today as it did 4 billion years ago. Before life even existed in any conscious form. When the earth was busy shaping itself from its own internal pressures. Spewing out toxins and branding itself with molten rock. Change comes from within, and is nurtured from external sources...  Early this morning I picked up a spider to put him outside of my room, where…See More

I Made a Self Out of Drugs and Booze!

Some reflections on the journey from dysfunction to sobriety.The Ego is formed in the early years, as a response to the realization that the world is not just solely about us. It serves to establish a balance between our base desires and impulses and helps us to conform to the dictates of society. As we begin to observe the vastness and complexity of society we adjust ourselves according to how we can fit into it. In my case, this was no less than an adjustment to already existing trauma.

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
