Healer Horse

As I read an online article today, I suddenly recalled an intensely stressful day not so long ago. My marriage was rocky and stressful on the bad days and indifferent on the good ones. We would subtly create our own spaces in the cocoon called home. The bad days though were spewed with irritations and … Continue reading Healer Horse

Counting My Blessings

It's fantastic when in crisis, we begin to notice and appreciate the little mercies and big blessings. Perhaps because the noise of the fair-weather, conditional, show-it-to-prove-it friends, families and even foes falls away. I am delighted to notice how all that I ever wished for seems to be coming to me effortlessly in my direst … Continue reading Counting My Blessings

It … Continue reading Mirror, mirror on the Wall

All this happening in … Continue reading Meditation Ramblings

Rendezvous with Fear

It's interesting how synchronicity works. One weekend, I raised a question to a Tibetan Buddhism scholar about transforming (fear) energy and within days, I had my very own experiential insight... (well, also interesting and refreshing how the Lama had defined sychronicity itself too, but that's for another time, perhaps). I had recently become aware that … Continue reading Rendezvous with Fear
