Empowering and Supporting Others

“All the world is a stage…..” said Shakespeare.    The Tibetan Master Dhwjal Khul told us, through the Alice Bailey books, about the world of illusion and the world of glamour.  My own logic tells me that if this is so, then we are all the greatest actors and supporting cast imaginable. Yet this is not so far-fetched, because if we think about it very carefully, we actually spend our lives...

Expressions of Love

There is a lovely old metaphor ‘love is a many splendoured thing’ .  Indeed there was a lovely old film by this name – and I think here I would especially like to emphasise and concentrate on the word ‘many’.   For the word, and particularly the meaning of LOVE, has so many aspects.   For some the word love is difficult to use perhaps because we only associate an emotional response and we...

Beyond Thought

Our thoughts have always been part of us. We may even have believed that our thoughts were our conscience, that is, until we started realising that our feelings and our thoughts were intimately connected, and our lives were ruled by both. Our perceptions, our thoughts, our feelings are first shaped by the surroundings we find ourselves in, by our families, by our nation, by our race. So from...

Healing Through Our Inner-Connectedness

One of the most fundamental truths of our being is our own inner connection.  However, because often life is so busy and we are caught up in a thousand and one things to do, perhaps we don’t allow ourselves the time to really know who we are and what we are made of.   Jesus said ‘The Father and I are one’.   What does this mean?   What is our connection with the divine?  In the recognition...

The Grace of Being

Article for New Vision, The Hamblin Trust magazine There are times in life when we go through varying experiences which affect us deeply.   Some of these experiences are joyful and our hearts leap in pure happiness.   Other experiences can be painful and we feel almost like drawing wings around us for comfort and protection.   With the joyful experiences it would be quite natural that we...

Walking the Pathway

Article for New Vision, The Hamblin Trust magazine When we rely only on our outer selves, life’s experiences can sometimes be extremely overwhelming and often very painful.    It is so hard to understand pain and suffering with simply the outer human mind.   We resist it, we resent it.    We cannot understand why when we try so hard to do the right things, life throws a spanner in the works...

Life’s Rich Blessings

Or Blessings in Disguise Article for New Vision, The Hamblin Trust magazine Every now and again life has a way of throwing a few spanners at us – some small and some large.   We can call them testings, they are the trials and tribulations which the soul needs to experience as we develop along the spiritual path.   If one was being thoroughly pessimistic we could even say  that this is the...

Healing – the natural way

Article for New Vision, The Hamblin Trust magazine Healing and well-being is a natural gift of life that is available to all of us.   Healing comes by grace of being.   Being who we are and flowing with our natural energy – the chi, reminds us that we are part of the Infinite, that Divine spark that is inherent in each one of us.   Our original creation was in that perfect seed that needed...

Changelessness in Change

The concept or intention of change is that it brings the possibility of altering our lives or at least certain aspects of it.  Whether this is by choice or imposed on us, it nevertheless takes us to a different space and a fresh opportunity to bring something new into our lives.  If we have made the decision to do or begin something new in our lives, then we do so perhaps in the hope that a...

Awareness of our Inner Self

I have often wondered why it is that we spend time preparing for any travelling, whether social or work related, and yet so few prepare or even understand the greatest journey of all.   As we probably know from experience any travel arrangements can come fraught with stress and anxiety, especially when we are planning a holiday with our families.    There is so much to take into account, so...
