Sitting In The Forest Saying Sorry
I think of what wild animals are in our imaginations. And how they are disappearing — not just from the wild, but from people’s everyday lives, replaced by images of themselves in print and on screen.

A Letter To My Pre-School Self: Three Things You Need To Know

A Spiritual Reason Not To Stay Indifferent To Climate Change
The greatest danger to our future is apathy. Jane Goodall I had a strange conversation with someone yesterday. A person who happens to be a spiritual leader, teacher and author – a person many look up to, and by whom many are guided. A person I consider a friend. (No, I’m not going to name […]
Focus on what matters!
Blinding ignorance does mislead us. O! Wretched mortals, open your eyes! Leonardo da Vinci Hi, Lovelies. During a channelling session at my recent retreat, a simple but powerful message was delivered to us. Focus on what matters. Don’t focus on how a message is delivered, or the looks of the person who is delivering the […]

What Not To Get Me For Christmas
“Armaments, universal debt, and planned obsolescence—those are the three pillars of Western prosperity. If war, waste, and moneylenders were abolished, you’d collapse.
