The Radiance of Love that Nurtures and Sustains

If we observe all that happens in our world, whether natural processes or man-made procedures, and if we look long and deeply enough we can begin to see the patterns – the underlying blueprints – that guide everything into its intended form and expression. The same dynamic process of nature is behind the birth of every baby and yet each …

The Resonance of the Spheres

The Resonance of the Spheres

We often use the word “soul” in ordinary expressions such as: poor soul, heart and soul, soul music, soul mate, kindred souls.

The Gentle Flower of Hope

The Gentle Flower of Hope

How essential is light in the operation of our modern world! As night falls the street lights appear and then the lights of homes, businesses, cinemas, hospitals, cars, trains, aircraft and all the elements that contribute to the constant rhythm and movement of life in the material realm.

altai mountain range

If we think about it, we really do live in a world of “optical illusions” and in the widening prevalence of “virtual” exchange and communication it is becoming the basis of how we interact with one another and our world.

tree of life

If we were to ask anyone just ‘off the cuff’ what they most want, they might spontaneously express it as, say, to get to the end of the working day, or to own something which they feel would bring a release into a freer, less constrained way of living, or even ‘world peace’ for which we all long.
