The Heart’s Longing – Blog No. 1

Creatrix

Those who have hearts will recognise the familiar deep ache that signifies the alignment between the longing and the longed-for. A heart grown of patient longing for the long-awaited is not a weak heart. It is the heart made stronger than the divide between the two. That strength not only generates an unbreakable bond linking the beginning of the longing and the end of its trajectory, it provides both sides with the power to align at any point with one another – regardless of space or time – and find their way home to belonging.
A heart that longs is naturally a pained heart. It is apt to be so. A self denied is a tortured soul indeed and I suspect that this, for many who soon realise they have rejected their own essence, will in due course become patently clear. Perhaps that is why most people will do anything to distract themselves from the actuality that an age-old longing pre-exists every one of us, and is inherent in each of ourselves. That longing in itself alone is the reason we are actually here and it would be wise for you to try and remember at least that.
The Heart’s Longing is an inspiration, its manifestation a miracle. Implicit trust, the application of absolute faith in the pure heart’s true vision and the willingess to serve its subsequent longing is what finds you the necessary capacity to match the laws of attraction resonating from the beginning of the longed-for’s trajectory.

The weather – Blog No. 22

The weather

It is conventional in some countries for people to speak to each other about the weather as if it were a reference point in a friendly conversation.  It isn’t.  It’s the polite way of saying:  I don’t know what else to say to you.  That is the way with all small talk.  It is projectile ineptitude and all those engaged in its futility are evidently acutely uncomfortable with silence of any kind.  They need to fill the tranquility, the quiet, with pointless noise aimed at easing the awkwardness caused when they are faced with social situations in which they would rather not find themselves.  Do not listen to that sort of noise.   If you are genuinely interested in the weather, then speak of it with reverence.  Do not use it as an excuse to make wasted conversation.  Even the weather gets bored, hearing itself spoken about in the dead tones of those who chatter with empty heads.

The weather is largely unpredictable.  It is set to stay that way.  Forecasting is one way of finding out what is on its way, weather-wise.  Forecasting has prevented many deaths this century.  It is a valuable resource.  It is tempting – given the research done and being done – to imagine that it is reasonable with practice to predict definite weather patterns or determine with certainty what the weather will ‘do’.  You cannot decide what the weather is going to do.  It has its own agenda to attend to.  It is important to know that the weather we experience is impacted by factors that haven’t even happened yet.

The weather is quite often a phenomenon.  It does not play favourites.  It is what it is.  It does what it can.  The weather does not ask humankind if it would like a monsoon yesterday.  It sends a hurricane when the winds decide the time is right and a monsoon on Tuesday if the rain says okay.  That is its way.  There is no reward for complaining about its diverse nature, nor is there respite from its less tender ministrations for those who will build their lives contrary to its guidelines.  Nature will not be tamed.  Not now, not then – and not ever.  I – for one – am grateful for its changeability, its refusal to be capped by mankind.  Nature is our very essence.  Weather is its expression.  No matter how frustrating it is for humankind, neither respond to punishment.  Neither will be manipulated by public opinion.  Neither care what curses are spat in their general direction.  When there is Nature’s work to be done it gets done.  The way you feel about how it goes about its business is neither here nor there, either.  It does not work to impress.  It works to get the job that needs doing, done.

Chronology – Blog No. 12

chronology

It is necessary to get things in their correct order.  That is not hierarchy, it is a process through which we reach the right outcome.  You cannot know what is next if you do not know what came before.  If you do not bother to find out what came before you can rest assured that your outcome will not be what you think it is.  It is not wise to decide that 1969 comes after 1972, for instance, because in this world, it doesn’t.  1972 would not have been what it is if 1969 had not come first.

Priorities are best in chronological order.  That way, you can see where you are versus where you were and you can then plan where you want to be.  In retrospect – using hindsight – chronology also gives you an accurate breakdown of your progress along your journey.  You can see where you made mistakes and how you overcame them, and you can work out why doing certain things at certain times is pointless.  Chronology is like A, B, C, D, E.  Or 5, 4, 3, 2, 1.  It is knowing that if you will fly, you must first grow wings.  Growing wings in 2015 is advisable if you will fly in 2017, for example.  Wings do not grow overnight.

A timeline is another kind of chronology, and it is somewhat like a map.  If you can read numbers, orders, you can read your future past and thereby arrive at your present destination with all your ducks in a row.  I have heard it said that ducks in a row are too easy to shoot, but that is perhaps a pessimist’s view.  Ducks in a row can slipstream.  That means unless you are using a bazooka you are unlikely to hit all the ducks with one shot.  Work out your timeline and trust its message.  We all have our own times and places to be – your timeline is not mine, mine is mine.  Yours is yours.  Timelines are exciting when you establish – and follow – their lead.  In essence they know more about you than you do.

Language – Blog No. 29

earthhour

Until you have been taught a language other than your mother-tongue, you cannot appreciate what it is that you have learned to speak.  You cannot be sure how you speak, either.  The solution, therefore, is to decide in which other language you would like to become fluent and become familiar with its people.  That is the best way to begin anything.  Make certain you get a teacher that knows what they are speaking, too, otherwise it’s unlikely that you will ever be able to communicate properly.

There are languages that are more beautiful than others.  Some places have ways of saying things that resonate with a person’s soul, their entire being.  Silence, too, is a language.  It is not simple to speak in silence, but it is beautiful.  I was told once that the French have a word – or a phrase – to describe that moment right before orgasm, which I think is particularly special.  I should like to know if that is true.  If it isn’t, perhaps it should be.

Language serves more purposes than communication.  It carries in its essence everything we have all ever been.  When we think in that way about ourselves, the world as we know it, it would make sense to value each and every language that has ever been developed.  It would make sense to value the people that speak those languages, too.

Roots – Blog No. 50

roots

Roots are the beginnings from seed, like chickens are the beginnings from eggs. We all begin somewhere. Roots are probably what to ask if you will know the state of the world in which we find ourselves. They know it all. They carry through them the news of what is happening in – and to – our environment. Roots can lead to all sorts of things. Even trees. That is their strength.

When you are rooted, you have central balance. Core stability. There are a number of different ways to root yourself. Like there are a number of ways to earth a charge. When there are droughts, roots dig themselves deeper into the ground. They surge, and at times, they reach the water table. That is to their advantage.

When you consider that rotting bodies gone to ground feed the soil with their truths, you will understand that in actual fact many a person’s essence has at some stage travelled through a plant. Perhaps that is why flowers bloom so beautiful.
