Warriors, We Are

Warriors, We Are – 2020 Series of Mind-Meanders   Introduction to my current preferred style of writing Random questions and thoughts drift in and out of my awareness. They stem from an attitude to life that, to the best of my ability, I have embraced throughout a ten-year practice under Yudit CS, my Jewish/Israeli mentor.

Lucky For Us, GPS Is Already Active

Australia, August 2020   Like any other dire complications or crises many of us have already faced, Covid-19 holds a mirror to our faces. Like every other taxing moment, the pandemic reflects our family dynamics, our priorities and a culturally adopted superficiality. It has widened pre-existing cracks in ourselves and in the status quo, making

When Our Best IS Our Best

Australia, September 2020   We are creatures of habit. We are not quick to embrace changes that are imposed on us. We live in the delusion that we are – or should be – our own masters. As a result, much of what we perceive as stressful on a day-to-day basis is not specific. It’s

Are We Having Fun Yet? 

Australia, July 2020   Though Earth dwellers of limited ability, without exception, we all are beings of light compressed in whichever physical body that bears our name and our lineage. Of course, nothing that is of an esoteric nature is provable. Nothing that has become accepted into a spiritual belief system or a religious faith

Like The Lotus Flower

Adaptation or Evolution

Australia, May 2020 Scientists often talk about the ‘evolution’ of mankind. If we accept that Homo sapiens (humans) are ‘only’ highly intelligent primates then, yes, from bipedalism to brain expansion, and adjusting to social mores in flux, we can say that physical, emotional and intellectual evolution has taken place. That said, within the context of

Caught Between Before and Beyond

Image created and kindly donated by Jayne Doah     Australia, April 2020   More than a pause in the cultural status quo that moved humanity onward, faster and in many ways crazier post-industrialisation, it seems the Coronavirus outbreak is forcing a mind reset on the grandest scale imaginable. It has become our separate and

Corona – our Invisible Crowned Ruler

Australia, March 2020   Corona means ‘crown’ in Latin, Italian, and Spanish. It is an appropriate name for the novel Coronavirus that, as a self-crowned autocrat, has put an abrupt stop to ‘life’ as we had incrementally come to take for granted, 70 years into the Western world post-war era. It took a ‘speck’ too

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.
