Connect with your soul

Spend time in silence.

Take your attention off the world and tune into your soul.

Commune with your soul.

Feel you soul.

Being in the silence of your soul will connect you with your Source.

A Tribute to my Mom, Susanna Van Zyl

This is a tribute to my mom, Sannie Van Zyl who passed away on the 30th September 2018. She will leave a big gap in our lives.

Mom, we are so sad that you left us – you will leave a big gap in our lives – we will miss you but we have all the good memories you left us with. Those of us that shared the last few days with you here on earth know that you have suffered a lot but now you are without pain and in a better place with God.

Mom, God gave you so many talents and you used them all:  I will remember you for:

  • the beautiful toys you made
  • your beautiful garden
  • your lovely singing voice

Mom, I will remember your kind nature and your Christian way of life. You were always such a positive person (sometimes too positive for your own good), always smiled and ready to give a helping hand to anyone in need.

May you rest in peace.

Our Positive and Negative Mind

 (Taken from the book: Power, Freedom and Grace by Deepak Chopra)

We all experience mind switches throughout our day. Our minds can take in a lot of information every second, every minute, and hour of the day. We gather negative and positive interpretations in our minds.

A negative mind is an interpretation and a positive mind is also an interpretation.

It can both be a turbulent mind. We can switch over from one to the other very quickly.

You can be courageous the one minute then become fearful the next. Love can transform into jealousy before you know it!

The important thing to attain a positive mind is to be silent. A silent mind is a positive mind.

We can learn to go beyond our positive and negative mind; we then become silent, non-judgemental, non-analytical, and non-interpretive.

We become the silent witness when we experience inner silence. In purity of silence we feel connected to our source and to everything around us.

Attachment

(Taken from the book : Power, Freedom and Grace by Deepak Chopra)

Attachment is a form of fear, doubt, and worry, and this constricts the flow of nature’s intelligence. The more we detach and let go, the more spontaneously our desires are fulfilled.

Anything that happens in your body is a faint desire.

Desire is a pure potentiality seeking manifestation.

The fulfilment of Desire requires that we first BE, and the simply have the notion in our awareness spontaneously creates the reality.

The less you worry about the mechanics of desire, the more efficient it is.

The old threads are unraveling by Julia Myers

Get your needles ready. 
We are stitching a new quilt 
of humanity.
Bring your old t-shirts,
worn out jeans, scarves, 
antique gowns, aprons, 
old pockets of plenty
who have held Earth’s treasures, 
stones, feathers, leaves,
love notes on paper.
Each stitch 
A mindful meditation. 
Each piece of material 
A story.
The more color the better, 
so call in the tribes. 
Threads of browns, whites,
reds, oranges
Women from all nations
start stitching.
Let’s recycle the hate, the abuse, 
the fear, the judgment. 
Turn it over, wash it clean, 
ring it out to dry. 
It’s a revolution
of recycled wears.
Threads of greens, blues, purples
Colorful threads
of peace, kindness, 
respect, compassion
are being stitched
from one continent to the next 
over forests, oceans, mountains.
The work is hard
Your fingers may bleed. 
But each cloth stitched together 
Brings together a community. 
A world, our future world
Under one colorful quilt. 
The new quilt of humanity

Edge of Wonder -The Wildness of Being

We arrive into
this world as
energy, same as
stars, wildlife,
wind and ocean.
Messy, raw, and
continuously
perfect in our
chaos.  Release the
need to control,
and instead
surrender to your
own natural
rhythm, as
expansive,
accepting and open
to new
circumstances and 
situations as air
itself.  That is how
you’ll thrive.
