OM Aphorism

Aphorisms can be used as part of a meditative practise.

John Kells has written a number of aphorisms to work on  OM. Here is one that I like.

" OM is voice to timeless Benediction "

Repeat this silently to yourself.


Become aware.

Wisdom on Eastenders

Fantastic advice for difficult times (or any time ) was given on Eastenders, a BBC TV "soap".

Breathe and let go, breathe and let go,

Let me try that - one moment......yes, it works :)

Mid Air Root

You can be rooted even with both feet off the ground, for instance, as you are doing a jump.

So this begs the question - what is root?

What is your connection to?

What is connected to you?

Is Root in the Feet, the Mind, the Heart?

Is Root in the Soul?

I don't have a definitive answer because my experience has thrown up different answers. I leave you to yours.

Forum warriors

Sometimes I do find it interesting to read discussions on forums about tai chi.

Mostly I am left disappointed by the inane mud slinging of the keyboard warriors who bathe in their version of reality to the detriment of others.

Was it Bruce Lee who said " My Reality is not your Reality " ?

So I'm off outdoors to celebrate my own version of reality instead. Practise with sincerity and be open to discovery.
