The mind in the heart

Of course we’ve all heard of putting our foot in our mouth but I wonder if we have ever pondered the idea of the mind in the heart? Most of us will be very aware of the power of persistence, determination and will when seeking to get things done. And yet […]

Cultivating a new field

“The control and power to construct or destroy is within you – choose wisely.” Sepideh Irvani

What are you thinking right now? Is it a thought that lifts or one that lowers?  Every day our minds are a mass of thoughts…some tiny and seemingly inconsequential, others more substantial.  Some are fleeting, scudding through […]

How powerful are you?

”A good intention clothes itself with power.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

I firmly believe that most people are not motivated to harm others or create mayhem in the world. For sure there are some who have badly and at times catastrophically lost their way and others who have had some bad luck and […]

One less plastic bottle in the sea

Every day new headlines can suggest the efforts of each of us to do the right thing, to do our bit, to make a difference are somewhat, if not utterly, futile.  The nature of the news itself, more often than not, is profoundly depressing.  Of course bad news sells […]

Cause or effect?

I heard the song ‘Chain reaction’ by Diana Ross on the radio the other day and it strikes me that the world feels a lot like that these days…a series of chain reactions. With 24/7 images, Twitter, Snapchat, Instagram, Facebook and the like, and the constant stream of sound bite news it’s very […]

‘Intention is the core of all conscious life. Conscious intention colours and moves everything.’  Hsing Yun

Success, achievement, positive outcomes may occasionally just happen, seemingly the result of happenstance.  More likely though – and if we reflect deeply enough – they’re the result of an intention well-set, the seed form of that we wish to create and, […]

Everything that happens in the Universe starts with intention – Deepak Chopra

The law of cause and effect is essential to contemplate in the context of Deepak Chopra’s quote… we are both the cause and the effect within our Universe and we can only assure beautiful outcomes if we are disciplined in our understanding of how […]

I have, I confess, come late to the idea and practice of gardening.  The garden I have created is all about structure and order and has relied heavily on the advice and practical assistance of those more proficient in the green finger department than me (not difficult).  Yet they’ve also worked under the rules that […]

The power of intention – holding the long view

Recently I had occasion to reflect on an intention that I set 7 years ago in 2010. I attended an international spiritual conference in Umbria in Italy. I had attended the same conference the year before for the first time in St Albans in the UK and […]

‘Everything that happens in the universe begins with intention. When I decide to buy a birthday present, wiggle my toes, or call a friend, it all starts with intention.’ Deepak Chopra

A voice has been getting louder and louder over the last couple of years. This voice has been bringing to my attention the discrepancy between […]
