I was listening to a wonderful live webcast with Adyashanti last night. These are some of the notes I took, words of his that really touched me.

Consciousness appears as nothing and everything, but its essence is no thing. If we look for it as a thing or an experience, we won’t find it.

Ask yourself, is it true that it [stillness, consciousness] isn’t here right now?

Most people, sometime in their lives, stumble across the truth. Most jump up, brush themselves off and hurry about their business as if nothing had happened.

Self Meeting Itself

Mooji

Maggie O’Farrell

Maggie O'Farrell

I love Maggie O’Farrell. She’s my all-time favourite writer, and I’m eternally grateful for all the beauty she brings into this world. Each page in any of her books is as delicious as a perfect piece of dark, rich chocolate! There’s something about her voice, her writing style, that simply moves me beyond words… Over and over again I’m blown away by how it conjures up this mesmerising sense of getting intimately close to each character, inviting me to feel the rhythm of their breath, to taste the unique quality of their heartbeats…

It hit me today. There has been a lot of tears and heartbreak, and also a shattering break-up. A break-up with myself, that is.

Break-ups and make-ups usually go together, but will there ever be one for me?

…but wait a minute, who would be making up with whom? Who is this other one?

Singing is my passion, my first love and the secret of my energy. Music to me is like finding my inner self, my soul. It gives me a great joy to see audiences enjoying with me. I have given my heart to singing. When I sing, I can feel romance in everything around me.
