Get Out Of The Way

Never try to help someone unless they are ready and willing to be helped. One thing we all eventually learn, the hard way.Until help is asked for, until there is a readiness to listen and inquire and challenge old patterns, your attempt to help will be felt as manipulation, control and resistance - your issue, your need, your war, not theirs. Defences will go up, positions will become hardened, and you will end up feeling frustrated or superior or powerless or broken, and the mirrored roles of 'victim' and 'saviour' will make you feel more disconnected from each other than ever. How to truly help? Meet them where they are right now. Let go of YOUR dream of their healing...

Aloneness

Aloneness is a place deep inside of you. It is your true Home, an ever-present sanctuary of warmth and profound fulfillment that can never leave you.When you run from your aloneness into your addictions and distractions, you will always feel lonely, disconnected from the breath and the body and the Earth.But, in any moment, you can come Home. You can flush 'the lonely one' with awareness. Breathe deeply into the pain of separation, and make it whole again. Be here Now. You can be alone, with all life. With the trees and the mountains.

The Dance Of Aloneness

We are all alone.This is not depressing when you realise it's the truth.We are born alone, we die alone.Along the way, perhaps we meet. Friends, lovers, strangers.

When You Listened

In my darkest moments, you listened to me.When my heart was broken, raw and aching for love, you offered a safe, warm, empathic field in which I could break as much as I needed to.“Break more. It’s safe here”, you said.When I was lost, you did not try to save me. When I was scared, you did not try to take away my fear.When I wept, you wept with me.When I felt I couldn’t go on, you allowed me to rest.When my certainties fell away, you blessed my doubts.You did not abandon me when I was at my worst. My negativity did not scare you. My dark fantasies did not threaten you. My flaws were not repulsive to you. And...
