Your hand moves
and the fire’s whirling
takes on a different shape.
All things change when you do.

The Lover is Ever Drunk

The Lover is ever drunk with Love.
He is mad,
she is free.
He sings with delight,
she dances with ecstasy.
Caught by our own thoughts,
we worry about everything.
But once we get drunk on that Love
whatever will be, will be.

~ Rumi

Love Said to Me

Last night
I lost my grip on reality
and welcomed insanity.
Love
saw me and said,
I showed up.
Wipe you tears
and be silent.

You are Everything

Lotus

Lotus, Koh Maak

.
We live in illusion
And the appearance of things.
There is a reality:
We are that reality.
When you understand this,
You will see that you are nothing.
And, being nothing,
You are everything.
That is all.

~ Kalu Rinpoche

I Told Beauty

I told beauty that I’m in love with you
and you shyly replied
Oh my darling,

I couldn’t hear what you said

A Willingness to Lose

A feeling is not bottomless.
Once felt all the way through,
a great peace greets you there.

Freedom lies at the heart
of my willingness
to lose everything.

Strandhill, Sligo

Strandhill, Sligo

I love Strandhill. It’s simply breathtaking. This magical, wonderful town and beach is situated in Co Sligo, on the West coast of Ireland. The scenery is absolutely awesome and the energies very, very intense. I love wandering along the sand dunes, aimlessly… sometimes finding the occasional treasure – a sparkling stone, an oddly shaped piece of drift-wood or seashells whispering secret tales of the faeries.

Bianca is in Town for a Reason

Lars and the Real Girl is a wonderfully quirky, bittersweet film about love, acceptance and the relativity of reality.
Ryan Gosling is absolutely beautiful to watch in his role as Lars; an awkward young man who falls in love with his sex doll Bianca. Funny, offbeat and filled with charming characters and plenty of brilliant acting – this is a film you really wouldn’t want to miss out on.
