Some Thoughts on Life

The Spaciousness of not Knowing

The Spaciousness of not Knowing

From our early childhood we are told by the many authority figures around us – parents and teachers, the books we read, the religions we are born into – what the truth is – according to them. But many of us as we grow up look around and begin to question these authorities – very healthy! Too often though we replace these early assumptions with other new truths that we find for ourselves from new teachers, new authorities…… The Satori group is about finding your own truth. Nothing you are told, or have read, or heard – but a deeper knowing that with a sudden clarity emerges from your...

Sending Love

Sending Love

Last year I was in a car accident when someone shunted me from behind and my car was overturned on the motorway. No-one other than me was hurt and my injuries were really quite minimal – but it had an effect on me which was beyond any physical injury and the brief time of being unconscious. I was deeply shaken at the centre of my being – in some way my old self was broken … . I became aware that the invincibility, the strong woman that I had always clung to was something that kept me apart, separate. Acting a part that I was conditioned to believe, and this conditioning was so...

Clarity

Clarity

What a wonderful word…… It connects me to a vibration, a certain resonance when everything is right, at ease, in the moment. The times I experience it most profoundly are at certain moments of working with people when there is a realisation of being in a deep connection. It can’t be formulated or contrived – it just happens and the other person and I are simply there, utterly present in the moment. Such a blessing for both of us. It happens very frequently in the Satori process. Sometimes in an individual meeting with a participant and sometimes during a talk to the whole group when there is...

Falling In Love With Yourself!

Falling In Love With Yourself!

Since returning to France earlier this month, after the last Satori group, I have been very much alone. Some friends who live close by, a man I spend time with who touches my heart, but, essentially always alone. Even when there is another with me. There is no-one I can relate to or share with from this utter aloneness. It sometimes feels very lonely and I also know that this is essential for me right now – in fact it’s perfect. I mention all this because I can sense it is a place that many people are struggling with at this time. It’s actually an existential reality of life and one that...

Simply Magic

Simply Magic

The Alchemy of Giving It’s always been obvious to me that generosity and sharing brought feelings of joy and a sense of expansion. In contrast, not wanting to give, a holding on, a certain miserliness brings the sense of contraction, the feeling that if we give we will somehow loose out, not have enough for ourselves – may not even survive…… It makes total sense then to see that when we give we live in a state of expansion and when we withhold we live in contraction. Expansion is full of joy, of being in the heart and feeling vibrant and alive. It isn’t just about material things – it’s...

Living in a Symphony

Living in a Symphony

Here in this stunning rain forest area of Australia at Quindalup and this morning realising that everything is a part of a vast symphony – sometimes my very own and then suddenly understanding (remembering) that I’m part of this huge orchestral whole. Sweeping chords and a vast swelling of sound in one moment and a collapse into discord and chaos in the next. My mind frantically trying to work it all out until, in this moment, it just doesn’t matter, it’s all part of the same marvellous symphony. I’m staying in a little cottage which is being offered to me for as long as I like by Paul...
