Heart in One is Heart in All

In the BBC Documentary, ‘Echo: An Unforgettable Elephant’, a story unfolds of the wise and beloved matriarch of an elephant family. Through all the vicissitudes of life and death she leads, holding the threads of an unbreakable web of relationship through which love flows and wisdom is transferred.

Dancing in the Stream of Life

Dancing in the Stream of Life

Watching events across the globe, from our local community to the international stage, it appears our world is at a crucial point of balance, teetering a little, backwards and forwards, between the unreal and the real as though we are more consciously living out the ancient prayer: Lead us from Darkness into Light, from the Unreal to the Real, from …

Where is Heaven?

Light Through Trees

Some days are so bright with sunshine that one can’t help but feel joy bubbling up and dancing through one’s veins. And then we hear the news reports from around the world about the desperate troubles which still beset humanity in spite of all the progress we have made into enlightened living.

The Light of the Soul in All Things

Light of the Soul

As with many essential aspects of our daily lives, we take the presence of light for granted and perhaps only rarely look at it as the marvellous mystery it really is.

The prodigal son returns

The Return of the Prodigal Son by Pompeo Batoni 1773

Time can seem such an ephemeral concept that it is almost unreal and yet it drives our ordinary lives with a powerful authority and we can be swept along in its great tide. Timetables and schedules organise our day. Habitual patterns of activity keep pace with the unfolding of the day’s hours, minutes and even seconds. Speed is urged to …

To see a world in a grain of sand

What a bundle of contradictions we humans can seem to be! We want to belong, to be like everyone else, and yet at the same time we desire to be acknowledged and to express our individuality within the larger group. The wondrous thing is that together we form the kingdom in nature which finds it possible to identify both with …

The Path Into Infinity

At this time of year while there is an emphasis on finishing up and fulfilling undertakings, there is also a magnetic pull into the seasonal celebrations and the prospect of a fresh start with a new year. In a way we are both poised and yet fast moving forward like an arrow still in high flight between bow and target …

Intimations of Immortality

Immortality

In our multifaceted world there are many different ways of seeing any one situation. Each perspective is influenced by a history of associations and values that may stretch back through untold lifetimes of family, ethnicity, culture and language. And at the heart of every moment there is the Presence of eternal truth. In the surface world of physical plane life …

What Radiates from the Heart of God?

Television programmes such as Rise of the Continents; Wonders of the Universe; and First Life give focus to the great movements that manifest the planet as we know it – that nurturing sphere in which all the natural kingdoms can flourish, interact, learn and grow in understanding of each other and of the purpose of this great Being in Whom …

The Heart is the Bridge Between the Worlds

Purity of Heart

“Who do you think you are?” may be asked in the most ordinary of everyday circumstances but the television program of that name presents an historical journey of discovery through someone’s ancestry and, in so doing, brings deeper understanding of past events and conditions, and so expands our sense of the progress, betterment and refinement of civilisation. It is deeply …
