You are the truth that you are seeking.

The message of the mystics is clear that ‘we can’t find what we are looking for in this world.’ As what we are looking to experience is our own soul.

Rumi puts it this way: “I have lived on the lip

of insanity, wanting to know reasons, knocking on a door. It opens. I've been knocking from the inside.”

Yoganada states “By the practice of meditation, you will find that you are carrying within your heart a portable paradise.”

This is a tough pill to swallow, as I notice in my own life, that the light shines brightest in the darkness.

This means when life becomes more of a struggle or is filled with some uncertainty, that’s when I find the most powerful connection to the divine, to freedom and to bliss.

It’s like my ego self has to be reduced to ash, time and again for my light to become apparent.

This is such a mystery where we are told:

“When love beckons to you, follow him,

Though his ways are hard and steep.” ..

“And when he speaks to you believe in

him, Though his voice may shatter your dreams

as the north wind lays waste the garden.” …

“All these things shall love do unto you

that you may know the secrets of your

heart, and in that knowledge become a

fragment of Life’s heart.”

- Kahlil Gibran

There is a spiritual fire we have to walk through on this path of awakening, a fire which burns away all that is a false and temporary.

I remember in meditation once being shown symbolically, that we where like a snake constantly shedding its skin. And we suffer in our holding onto that which we are shedding.

There is a jewel in the heart of the lotus of our life, stillness & compassion are two medicines which reveal it to us. That show us that home can be found where we already are.

Finding the divine in the every day

This coffee shop in New Brighton is one of my favourite meditation halls, it’s where I love to commune with divinity after it opens in the early hours. So many of us are waiting for that big kundalini

The sun on your face, the rain on your skin

Some days, months or even years for me can seem like an eternal sunshine, I’m in flow, things just fall into place. Perhaps you have these times too where you are surrounded by joy, it feels like you
