A thought for Sunday

You can’t have cold if there is no hot, tall without short, happiness without unhappiness, light without dark…one thing has to exist in order to know the other.

Everything has its opposite and without it, it wouldn’t exist.

If we only had ‘good’ things they wouldn’t exist as good. That’s why in reality, all things have to be in balance and neither or good nor bad.

However, life has to have challenges in order for us to learn and grow, in order to want to seek new experiences and to become an even better version of ourselves.

We are not here as a ball of energy and light to stay stuck in our minds, thinking, suffering, judging, hating, fearing…we are here for now, to experience light and dark as a human soul.

The universe gives us everything we need and in order to see it we have to stop looking and to just be. Fear creates resistance and blocks our ability to see.

Don’t fear bad things, welcome them as a new experience and know that good things will come as a balance too. None of these things matter, they will come and go as everyone and thing are temporary.

But If we fear them we will never actually experience real life now, we just spend a suffering ‘existence’ within our own mind.

Let go of the mind and its self-created fear and let our love from our soul shine for us and others.

Experience life whatever shape it comes in rather than be unconscious in fear. We don’t have a life, we are life right now.


Today, as I do most days, I visited our local bio-dynamic farm at Plaw Hatch.

I absolutely love the place and people who run it and today as always at this time of year they had their trailer full of beautiful squashes. I just love the shapes and the colours.

It is a reminder, as summer passes into autumn, that nature teaches us many things and the changing seasons and the pattern of life that goes with that is there to show us that things are born, they grow, they blossom and flourish, then they fade and eventually die.

Autumn is the phase where the once flourishing plant, flower, tree…starts to wither and to fade.

All things are temporary, so enjoy every moment and make all those amazing experiences that we can all make each and every moment. Don’t stay stuck in your thoughts and worries, just enjoy and buy some squashes to make some lovely autumn soup.
