We hope you had a beautiful and restful Sunday. Sundays are always such a great time to reflect on the things that really matter. What are some things that come to mind?

Hidden away in the Perth suburbs is a sanctuary of mud, fairy dust and ducks. A children's natural playground.

Sunsets are a glimmer...
A shimmering sliver;
Reflections of a continuity,
Eternally delivered.
The finality for which...
Flashing, as a fiery,
Blaze of glory;
Does most colorfully illustrate,
The absolute last,
Envisioned chapter,
Of a completely unique tale;
Unto, each individually told...
Daytime's short story.
~N.John Doty

1/1 That Day He Started Living Again 🍁

He took the right turn and saw a crowd that has gathered on the road. People talking and whispering to each other. He stopped by the side and pushed his way to the center of the crowd. An infant, a babygirl was lying on the roadside , in the sun , alone. He felt the baby's cries bursting his eardrums.

For a moment he was lost, in his memories of HER ; for a moment he felt hollow ; for a moment he felt the hole in his chest burning and growing bigger, trying to consume him. The sight took him back in time where he has always feared getting lost. He felt his life repeating itself in a circle. He was brought back by someone pushing him from behind. Something struck his mind at that moment.
He looked at the baby and was surprised at the striking resemblance she had with HER. From what he could recall from his hazy memory of HERS ; she had the same eyes, the same tiny little fingers and tomato red cheeks as HERS.

To be contd.... .

“ALL IS NOT WHAT IT SEEMS”

Many years ago a psychic said these very words to me. At the time I looked at them as relating to something spiritual or all consuming, and while that probably was (and maybe is) often the case, I can see now that there is a LOT more to this statement than I first thought.

How often do we live our lives based on preconceived thoughts, emotions, patterns of behavior, or experiences? How often are we wrong?
Probably a lot more often than we realize.

The other day an old friend rang and left me a few messages simply saying she needed to talk to me. She sounded a bit tense and a little irritated. Now this friend is someone I have done business with, shared deep secrets and insights with, and also someone who is very different to me. We have lots of shared history and even more shared patterns.
Immediately I assumed that there was something wrong and a part of me hesitated… I really didn’t want to ring her back. After all, my back has been dodgy, I hadn’t had a lot of quiet over the weekend, and I just wasn’t sure I had the strength to cope with whatever was going on for her. And, if it had anything to do with me, I had even less confidence that I could handle the situation emotionally. But I rang her. I rang her because a part of me wanted to get it over with and a part of me didn’t want to hang with the pondering I knew my mind would put me through. One of my weaknesses is I don’t like siting with discomfort, even when it might be in my best interest to do so!

But I rang her mostly because I wanted to get it over with.

When I rang her I felt myself take in a breath and hold it. My body tensed up but I forced myself to listen and be present. And the unexpected happened. She invited me to travel with her on a whirlwind trip – all expenses paid! Not at all what I expected... I was stunned and I was humbled and I realized that not everything is what it seems…

Where are you forming conclusions about things RIGHT NOW that might not be accurate?

“My hair has always grown in all directions and my teeth too and my beard. My nerves and my soul must surely grow in the same way. That is what makes me incomprehensible to those who grow all in one direction (...) They do not know how to take me.
This organic disorder is a safeguard for me because it keeps the thoughtless at distance.” Jean Cocteau

Standing there, that day, all I could think were the following lines from that song, eh, that song which describes life more accurately and beautifully than anything else I've heard or read so far:
.
वो भी एक पल का किस्सा थे
मैं भी एक पल का किस्सा हूँ
कल तुमसे जुदा हो जाऊँगा
वो आज तुम्हारा हिस्सा हूँ
.
There are journeys that make you realize that you are nothing but the most trivial detail in the history of universe. A detail that has been repeated a zillion times before you and will be repeated a zillion times after you.

MINDSET short reflections



Traveling with young students enjoying their lives always lets my thoughts and feelings go back in time.
It reminds me how time is just a concept in our heads and created by our minds. ⠀

We can feel the way we want to feel at any point in time. Even like teenagers no matter how old we are. ⠀

Flashback to my visit to the beautiful flower market at Campo di Fioro in Rome. In the midst of the bustling market I found the most beautiful roses. They were larger than any I’ve ever seen and completely open!
.
It made me think about how I’m trying to live my life. I am really trying to
change. I’m guilty of “rushing through life” and not really being present. Not taking time to be with friends and family more often. Not making time to relax even when on vacation.
.
For those of you who have felt ignored or not important to me, I’m sorry. Every day I make another bit of progress towards this goal of really being more present and available. I even have a “no tech day” once a week so that I am not focused on working or being online - instead I’m out and about seeing people, preparing food for my homeless friends and just trying to be a better person.
It’s progress not perfection.
I want a life like those roses - large, fully open and beautiful.
Thanks for being a part of my journey. I truly strive to have a legacy about who I AM not what I DID.

This goal of a more balanced life is a huge part of my wellness journey.

Several things have been said and repeated on several occasions!!! Promises were made, heard and remembered!!! Plans were drawn up and dreams were planned!!! But mistakes were also made and people regretted it!!! And these same people tried to fix the stupid committed and several attempts were made... in vain!!! The "wrong" thought that he continued to do something wrong but, in fact, the reality was different... people did not want the error to be repaired!!! And these same people were making the same mistakes or even worse mistakes but prefer to condemn the one who weakened but raised his head (no matter how wrong he was) and tried to improve his behavior!!! His mistake was to think that it would have some value to them... unfortunately, they didn't want to see the success of his attempts... for them, to see him try was nothing more than a pastime until the moment that it was no longer grace!!! But today, he smiles!!! For he did not fail by omission but by their ill-will and, in a way, he was victorious!!! ❤️

Flight In-Transit: A conversation that wasn't
.
.
"What is the status of the flight? Did it land?
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
"No. In-Transit.
.
"What? Hehe. Ok, where has it reached?
.
"No idea. Going in circles somewhere. But I can see some peak down there.
.
"Yeah. Look at those peaks, yeah. For us they've been here for eternity while we all come and go. Your flight will move ahead too in a tiny bit. But in the grand history of the physical manifestation of this universe, even the existence of these peaks is just a tiny dot on the timeline.
.
"Oh yeah, nothing is permanent as the cliché goes. Everything is always a transit, just like a flight. Life is a flight, an always in-transit flight.
.
"True. In this transit, we travel and we seek. We travel to a new place, climb a new peak. We fall in love with the place while we travel. We always want to be there for longer. But we do know, that if we stay there for long enough, we would want to leave, someday, unless we give ourselves a new cycle of illusion, an illusion of a new home. The same illusion that we all currently live in. We travel to a place or climb a peak knowing that we'll miss it when we'll be back. We'll long for it. And that'd atleast give restlessness, if not pain. Still we travel and to overcome the subsequent pain, we travel again, to somewhere new now. It is pretty much like how hangover works.
.
"Hangovers are almost pleasant. But transit seems to be a bit painful.
.
"Actually, pain here is because we are so busy seeking some destination. We are afraid to stop and stay, because we are afraid deep within that ultimately it will be another illusion, another disappointment. So we choose the restlessness and pain of longing in the wait for next destination, next place or next peak. We decide to keep running and live in this hangover.
We often forget, that to be human is to risk wounding your heart!
But that requires opening up the heart, but that'd shatter the illusion that keeps one going. Tough shit.
.
"I am feeling sleepy now.
.
"Cheers

"Having a future is part of what being human is about and when you take away the future for humans you take away a lot of the humanness. Its actually not a very good thing to live entirely in the present, that one needs to have a past, and one needs to have a future to be fully human."
