Dissolution

We are story
Ilusion
Water colour
Rememberings
Kept alive
In the framing of my mind
Invisibly etched
On someplace
I call my heart

I clutch
A painted reality
of yesterday
Making it mean tomorrow
Projecting holograms
Of you
And you
And you
On to the mirror of the future.

Blind to see
There is nothing
There
I am nothing
And you
An emptiness
Of ephemeral meanderings
In the echo chamber of
Some consciousness somewhere.

The me that is I
And the you that is you
Captured by human magic
Pressed memories
On to the ether that is the internet
Or a photo on my phone
While the we that is us
Dissolves and disappears
And we are dissolving still.

The drip dropping of these words came as I was reminded of a friend of mine who passed away almost a year ago in May 2018. The partner of a dear friend; we didnt know each other well or for very long and perhaps there was only one photo of the two of us. A selfie on my visit in 2017 – two distorted moon like faces grinning into the camera as I prepared to depart from Middle Earth. And now……all I am left with is the mystery of it all and the dissolving.

Easter Rising*


Perhaps it is the emergence of Spring, the coming of Easter, perhaps it is all of us, or just my desire for new life and emergence but my radar is picking up a farrago of metaphors about the cycle of life and death.

And just in case I dont notice it in this bucolic muddy, bole of countryside that I am living in then it shows up in my mail box and my twitter feeds.

Now, arriving in magic, flying,
and finally, insane for the light,
you are the butterfly and you are gone.
And so long as you haven’t experienced this: to die and so to grow,
you are only a troubled guest on the dark earth.

From The Holy Longing by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, translated from German by Robert Bly

*Being Irish – the juxtaposition of the words Easter AND Rising is poignant and particular and has a singular meaning. Also known as the Easter Rebellion, it was an armed insurrection in Ireland during Easter Week, April 1916. The Rising was launched by Irish republicans to end British rule in Ireland and establish an independent Irish Republic while the United Kingdom was heavily engaged in the First World War. It is has a personal impact too as a great uncle of mine, Walter Scott, was probably the last child to die in this struggle. This is not the topic I wanted to talk about here but it is part of the mythic struggle to reach the light.

The Ecology To Create A Beautiful World?

 “We have all these innovations and technologies and we don’t think about alternate capitals? It’s almost like back in the days when NBC, CBS, and other centralized TV stations were there doing the work, but none of them could come up with a YouTube, because they were so entrenched in that worldview.”
 
Nipun Metha talks active spirituality, real gift ecology, the polyculture of relationships, laddership rather than leadership and the capital of kindness, love and compassion.
 
Nipun’s projects are walking examples of what is possible when we look at life and business in a whole different way. As he says – when he quotes a Silicon Valley billboard “He who dies with the most toys still dies.”

Painting The Future

I can’t see
I can wield
I can’t know
But I am sure
In my lostness
I am found
And in the hum of the Universe
My intentions
Are subtle brushstrokes
On the canvas of tomorrow

Still You Stand

‘If every remnant of success was gone from you — still you stand as the culmination of all that you’ve learned…’ @AbrahamHicks #CrossingFrontiers

There Are No Preconditions

Hard to imagine that Sargy Mann is a blind painter. There is a colour, vibrancy and shape to his work that seems to be extraordinary when you consider he is not sighted. He shares his story here and says “If you are determined to keep going you don’t have to give up”. In that he reminds me of Eddie ‘The Eagle’ Edwards – who didn’t give up on his dream to be an Olympian. It was his determination rather than his talent that saw him achieve his end result.

What preconditions are getting in your way of creating what matters to you? What would you love to create that you have given up on?

If you want guidance to see the truth of what matters to you and what you need to do to refocus on it I am offering £100 off my one off breakthrough sessions bookings received between now and 15th February 2019. Sessions normally cost £250.

Booking Calendar

I will work with you to explore what is getting in the way of your best intentions, get clear on what really matters to you and establish the next step towards that end result.

We Are All Alchemists

Black is just how humans perceive the absence of any significant peaks in the spectrum of reflected light.

The alchemist knows that where there is lead, where there are challenges, there is blackness, there is also gold.

We are all of us alchemists. We activate our ability to release the spirit of the lead when we know that everything in life happens for us not to us. When we turn the eye inwards, when we observe our lives from the perspective of spirit we reveal the spectrum of golden light that is hidden to the human eye. Light that opens up new pathways for us to follow.

To Be Awake Or Not To Be Awake

To be awake means that the dream is over – to re-member the dream of unconsciousness that brings a life of tensions, anguish, feeling unfulfilled and running after illusions is to be asleep again.

The Hollow Space

There is a hollow space in us that we inhabit with our breathe. When we listen into that space where the visible and the invisible meet we will hear the crystal clear whisper of our hearts.

Cultivating The Sub Conscious Mind

Creating what matters to you is assured when you understand how to cultivate your sub conscious mind. It is not the BIG actions that count but the messages of purposeful intent. NOT taking action towards what matters tells your sub conscious mind that it doesnt matter.

What matters is that you can do it NOW not how BIG it is. What can you do NOW that plants the seed that you are on purpose?

And then DO IT.
