True You

Being with people who are in their element is such a nourishing experience. Nothing to prove. Just their passion enhancing the mood. So riveted by their talent, and nurturing their interest, in its development and expansion. At peace. In their bliss.

I gain such enjoyment, and always have, for watching the sparks light up in the people I meet, and those I work with. And in witnessing them expand their burning plan, for living a life that is for them ideally correct and real. Balanced, in its perfection, for giving them just the right inflection, for what it is they wish to achieve.

The reason, the unique talent, that a person possesses. That lights their fire, and fulfils their desire, and what they feel they were placed on earth to be and do. Right now, or indefinitely, the thing that excites and delights completely.

That's why I love what I do. And assisting people find and satisfy their 'True You'.

No-one else can tell anyone what that is. It is a task for each of us to find, to elaborate, and to make real.

For many it is a deliverance, from the sometimes unpleasant aspects that their life presents. To balance what is mundane for them. To clear their air, let down their hair. For others it is all consuming, immersed in it beyond all reasoning. For the rest it's somewhere in between. And, in each case, not as a distraction, but rather a connection, to that which is their true reflection. Correct, for whatever allows a person to connect, to their best true self.

Flying, soaring, at liberty. Free, to express, their soul, purposefully built, for joy and expression. Lifting the world's vibration.

Ken Robinson so comfortably draws attention to this fabulous subject when he focuses on the benefits of fostering creativity, and the freedom that that presents.

His book, The Element, is an inspiration, for those looking to validate the benefit of expressing their passion. If you are in the question, and like to read, it's worth the time to delve into the stories he so wonderfully weaves.

If however you don't have the time, sit back, relax and watch this fabulous link. I just love watching him speak. While it focuses on education, it has an important broad message to speak.

I watch it from time to time. It's a great way to stay in line, with the direction that is mine. Perhaps it will do that for you too. To stay on the path of True You.

Gifted Present

Endings and beginnings are the natural order.

Memories and plans keep moving us further.

Yet it is the present, gifted, that is the wonder.

These are the words that just came to me, as I recall what captured my attention this week.

J.R.R. Tolkein's 'Not all those who wander are lost', and a friend's penchant for 'wandering in wonder'.

And, when put together, wandering and wonder, it is the finding, of the gifted present, that allows us to ponder.

Our 'in the moment' experience, of two worlds deeply. The inner. And the outer.

How we react. The 'oh', and the 'wow' factor.

To what is going on with our senses, and the world around us.

The gifted present.

Found, not lost, in the wandering wonder.

Such rich fodder, for the ignited soul.

Taking it all in, as it captures us whole.

An aliveness experience beyond all compare.

A magical edifice for our DNA.

Taking care in the noticing, of the reactions life brings.

And in the processing, as body wisdom sets in.

Experiencing. Then letting go.

Surrendering. So more wonder becomes so.

Wanderings, meanderings. And the presence it brings.

Don't you just...

Don't you just love it

When the universal orchestra plays beautifully

When you get out of the way of your own unfolding

When you get exactly what you need

And recognise it's here

When everything aligns

And all notes combine

People, places, faces, traces, clues, views

Moving you along your journey

When you actually see, it's really real

That the magic is involving, and evolving

Big picture, and small

Gratitude galore

How lucky are we

Awesome Autumn

Awesome Autumn

It's 1st of March

Summer season zoomed right past

Cooler breezes, and rain filled days

Have set right in, their time to stay

Southern hemisphere now entails

Readiness, for this seasonal change

Warmer clothes emerging from closets

Blankets from storage, hands in pockets

Umbrellas and jackets and socks and throws

Have come out of months of regular repose

Health warming dinners with family and friends

Outdoor fire heated evening sunsets

Walks in nature a slower pace

As winds move in with a clearer embrace

This new season is totally blessed

With nurture, and nourishments, and gentler rest

New colours and aspects and textures abound

Heightening the senses to crisp life all round

Happy Autumn, as old leaves are shed

For new seedlings planted in deep garden beds

And, for all my readers up in the North

Blessed springtime for new blossoms caught

As we enjoy a fabulous Fall
