I N S P I R A T I O N - P A G E

There are loads of interesting links in various sections lower down the page -
to things like books, philosophy, poetry, videos, workshops, guides, yet more quotations,
visualizations, affirmations, peace prayers, meditation, art, therapies, etc etc.
  When we make judgements we're inevitably acting on limited knowledge,
isn't it best to ask if we seek to understand,
or simply let others be free to make their own choices?

“Notice, when looking at quotes - you'll never agree with every single quote of anybody's. We all have a different view of reality, of what is meaningful.
This is why we can never argue, or there would be no man left alive - we have to agree to disagree, and just get on with it maybe laugh a little too.
It's wonderful really - delightful - the infinte variety of wisdom and beauty! Let's accept it gladly” - Joules

“good dreams can be inspirations to bring in to make reality fantastic enough to share” - Joules

The law of attraction works all the time – it just depends what you focus on -positive or negative - confusion or clarity.
If you are at one with yourself and the universe, how could you be wanting for anything, you will know that it is all inside you already.
The deep self needs nothing because it is everything - abundance is everywhere - that which you are has everything it needs to be you..

Affirmations must be in present tense.

Creation heightens my vibrations.
Helping others heightens my vibrations.
The flood of new ideas I have heightens my vibrations.
I respond intuitively to do or say the right things to help others –
No two therapy sessions are ever the same.

I am grateful for all of the above.
I keep taking steps to get my book written
and to get the word out there in many other ways -
COURSES, WORKSHOPS etc…. I keep having new ideas.

“Look everywhere.  There are miracles and curiosities to fascinate and intrigue for many lifetimes:
The intricacies of nature and everything in the world and universe around us from the miniscule to the infinite;
physical, chemical and biological functionality; consciousness, intelligence and the ability to learn; evolution, and the imperative for life;
beauty and other abstract interpretations; language and other forms of communication; how we make our way here and develop social patterns of culture and meaningfulness;
how we organise ourselves and others; moral imperatives; the practicalities of survival and all the embellishments we pile on top;
thought, beliefs, logic, intuition, ideas; inventing, creating, information, knowledge; emotions, sensations, experience, behaviour.
We are each unique individuals arising from a combination of genetic, inherited, and learned information, all of which can be extremely fallible.
Things taught to us when we are young are quite deeply ingrained.  Obviously some of it (like don’t stick your finger in a wall socket) is very useful,
but some of it is only opinion – an amalgamation of views from people you just happen to have had contact with.
A bit later on we have access to lots of other information via books, media, internet etc, but it is important to remember that most of this is still just opinion, and often biased.
Even subjects such as history are presented according to the presenter’s or author’s viewpoint, and science is continually changing.
Newspapers and TV tend to cover news in the way that is most useful to them (and their funders/advisors),  Research is also subject to the decisions of funders
and can be distorted by business interests. Pretty much anyone can say what they want on the internet, so our powers of discernment need to be used to a great degree there too.
Not one of us can have a completely objective view as we cannot possibly have access to, and filter, all knowledge available,
so we must accept that our views are bound to be subjective.Our understanding and responses are all very personal, and our views extremely varied.
We tend to make each new thing fit in with the picture we have already started in our heads,
but we often have to go back and adjust the picture if we want to be honest about our view of reality as we continually expand it.
We are taking in vast amounts of information from others all the time, so need to ensure we are processing that to develop our own true reflection of who we are."  Joules


mantra for 2012 - year of grace

P O E M S , S O N G S , A R T



Tim Freke points out that there are a lot of changes going on, which are affecting our collective psyche.

"It seems to me we are experiencing seismic shifts in the collective psyche right now, which are bringing a lot of chaos and fear into people's lives.
Many of us are facing big challenges. This means we need to find a still centre within to avoid being engulfed
by the collective insecurity. And also so we can become beacons of love and hope in transformative times.

I know that for myself taking the opportunity to regularly step out of the dramas of my life and immerse myself in the wonder and mystery of existence is essential.
It is all too easy to forget how precious it is to be alive, so we stop really appreciating this incredible journey we are making together.

With huge love to you, Tim"

Peace comes from within - Peace is Power!"
Even when we know about all the ugly stuff that goes on in the world,
Peace is Power is still the best response!

I understand that the word ’namaste’ means something like
’the god in me recognises and/or honours the god within you’.

The word God can mean whatever you believe it to mean, for me it is the conscious stream of life from which we all come, and to which we can stay
connected throughout our lives as a source of peace, wisdom, love, support, knowing, inspiration, vitality, security, balance, and inner strength.
I think that awareness is paramount, because in awareness we gain understanding, which then enables us to regain our feeling of empowerment.
We need to feel empowered to make our choices conciously, about how to deal with changes in life, rather than reacting in fear (which tends to make us blind and weak).
If we are aware, we can be realistic yet postive, and we can properly focus our intentions.
Awareness can be quite sensual (which can add to your sense of feeling empowered).
Think about how your body moves as you live your life, how amazing it is; think about nature, observe the intricate beautiful details of natural thngs, and of things we create,
and breathe deeply to soak it all in.. Focus on the taste of food, the feel of textures in cloth, the feel of you partner's hand in yours; smell the sea breeze,
listen to the wind in the trees, witness the colours of the leaves, the children playing; and be thankful for this life we are experiencing - this life we can all help to keep wonderful.
Feel the wonder of being alive flood into you anytime you want, by taking a deep breath and letting the experience of these things fill you, even just by remembering.
We all have that same stream of life within us, so you are a part of everything. Each one of us has the power to make a difference to everything.
Breathe in that vital connection to the life source and sensual beauty everywhere, Feel loved and strong.

Julia and Chris would like to hold meditation evenings, discussion evenings, dealing with change evenings,
where we can discuss what is happening, discover answers to questions, explore alternative ways
of dealing with change - and use meditation to strengthen, steady, and inspire us.
Acting as a group can greatly assist our ability to cope with change, you feel stronger
with friends around you, you share ideas, and you can act together.

We are always on the lookout for venues for such evenings, and would welcome any suggestions.
Meantime, as with our workshops, we would be more than happy to come to people's homes,
and maybe you could invite a few friends...... or if you have a particular situation you would like to look at as a family,
then we are also more than happy to visit with just yourselves.

"I believe the Laughing Buddha represents the inner intelligence
that lives within us all.
He represents the part of us that is in tune with the Grand Design.
He doesn't try to control the chaos.
Instead, he listens and moves comfortably within the chaos
as the world unfolds around him.
He stays open to a constant flow of 'joyous survival' versus 'turbulent survival'.
He makes us realise that we can't get rid of the chaos but we can get
very creative with the turmoil.
We are all the creators of how we want to see this world."

Susan Jeffers, in "Embracing Uncertainty"
She also suggests that when we are troubled by something, we ask ourselves what
the Laughing Buddha would tell us, or even pretend that we are a Laughing Buddha!

"Instead of letting our emotions run amok with our minds, we can use our minds
as tools that allow us to build realities that serve us better,
and we attract what we are meant to attract because we are aware
and self-empowered enough to choose most of the time." Joules

"There isn’t a good side and a bad side of you or of anybody,
so there’s no need to be at war with yourself or anyone or anything at all.
All we are is a bunch of dozy people in the process of waking up.
All we really need to do is try gently to be open to continuing that process.
It’s no good getting worked up about stuff – it’s better to relax
and laugh at our mistakes,
then figure out how to learn from them and move on." Joules
