Chasing Rainbows

What do we desire?

What rainbow are we chasing in the hope of, one day, living a fulfilling life?

Are we ‘awake’ simply because the sun is up and our alarm clock is beeping?

Or are we ‘awake’, as in attuned to the moments underfoot, attuned to our inner self and attuned to Soul’s whispers?

Our Present Is Not For the Faint-Hearted

Our Present Is Not For the Faint-Hearted Cont’d from What Are We Able To Do?   Heads up: this mind-meander might simply end up being a grab-bag of ‘throw away’ ideas about the harms we, humans, have accepted to inflict ourselves under the guise of ‘modernity’ – but, hopefully, there will be a bit more

Chasing our Rainbow – Series in the Making

Brisbane – Australia – March 2021 While briefly on the topic of series, I’m not sure if this is an aha moment or a heads-up. Still, I sense that this upcoming flurry of mind-meanders is likely to contain a proliferation of thoughts prompted by common insecurities felt by a very vast swathe of humanity. By

When Handling The Tiller

  Twenty years from now, you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover – Mark Twain Yes, indeed, we feel a sea change is

Rafting Towards Our rainbow – a Tumultuous Journey

  Here’s one of the truisms we don’t want to hear too often – As long as we rely on external circumstances to provide us with happiness or joy, even when at their peak, we will never know sustained contentment. Tuned discordantly, as we are, to one trigger-reason or another to feel aggrieved, many of us

Rafting Towards Our rainbow – Rips and Tides

Part 2  We cannot see ‘reality’ as it is, for the wiring of our brain compels us to see things as we are. If this rings as true, let’s take out our compass and check our position again. We look for checkpoints. Even if, at the moment, we feel we are rafting like champs, unless

Rafting Towards Our rainbow – Land In Sight

    Part 3 – April 2021 ‘The opposite of love is not hate. It is indifference,’ said Nobel laureate, Elie Weisel, a much-celebrated Holocaust survivor and author. Perhaps strangely, the more difficult it was to remain calm around my mother, the more, deep down, I yearned to one day sense a measure of her

Rafting Out of the Darkness

Part 3 – cont’d from …   This is where I might need to add that, at the age of 20, while attending college in the States, I found myself trapped in a date-rape nightmare. Actually, it was not a ‘date’ as such, just an agreement to attend the evening Homecoming football game with a

Part 1 – Is Life A Rainbow Yet …

Brisbane – Australia – April – 2021   Is life a rainbow yet … or are we ‘hanging in there’, getting by, thinking that it could be worse – and that it probably will be? Either way, hi there, dear Reader, I’m so happy you’re here. 😊 So many billions of us have ploughed through

Part 2 – Is Life A Rainbow Yet …

Here’s a little quiz coming up: Part A Is Love intended as a spontaneous emotion that overtakes us whenever we are happy, euphoric or simply satisfied with the responses of others, near and far? Is Love an emotion that needs to be cultivated with determination and true grit? What if one way to measure our

Desire – Our Past or Our Present?

Our body lying on a sofa, slouching in an armchair, on a computer chair, or car seat doesn’t feel the same for long, so it prompts us to shift position. The awareness of the stiffness in our neck or back comes and goes. The sensations in our head, the contractions or rumbling in our tummy

After the Cyclone – a Faint Rainbow

You can’t stay in your corner of the Forest waiting for others to come to you. You have to go to them sometimes – Winnie The Pooh November 8, 2020 – 4 pm Australian Eastern Standard Time   Back at the keyboard after having watched in real-time, Kamala Harris, the US Vice President-elect, deliver her victory

Ready To Sail Off Toward Our Rainbow

To a degree, our lives seem to have slipped away from the incredible rainbow glimpsed in our dreams. The one we drew as toddlers. The one that, back then, made us grin. The one that made us run to the nearest adult and wave it at them. Reality check: as teenagers and, then, as young

Warriors We Are

Courage comes from our willingness to trust and be humble little blind mice in a maze. No idea in which direction lie the coveted morsels of cheese. No idea behind which are hidden the punishing electrical pulses.
