Still Alive

Namaste to you all, friends, family and to everyone else. Yes I'm still alive, (to all of you out there that I haven't returned phone calls, emails etc, etc, don't take it personally) it's been along time since my last post. There's lots of stories about why I haven't posted anything on blogger for seven months (boy where did that go?) or sent out a newsletter, but they're only stories. Today is another day and now is all we have.

What a roller coaster of a ride it's been this year, as life always is(and if it's not, maybe you should, get in a carriage and take a seat and let go). Well I'll keep it short, changed jobs a few times, was going to sail a yacht back from the Virgin Islands, to Australia for six months. Then it got called off, so I made other plans, then it was back on again, I was couple of days off, ready to fly out to America, then it fell through again(talk about up, down, in, out and even upside down, he he). Then out of the blue, in all of this mayhem, I met the love of my life, the angel that maybe I've been waiting for all my life.

I have been blessed to have met her, for how ever long it lasts, as I've thought to my self, no matter what happens for the rest of my life, I will always remember that I have had, the experience of loving someone, with all my heart and soul and feeling that love returned to me. Some people don't get to experience this divine love, in a whole lifetime and for a while there I thought I was going to be one of them, now I know I've been fully blessed, this lifetime.

I did get a chance to go on a road trip up the east coast of Australia, which was a fascinating experience, I'll post some pictures of my journey, soon. I realised on the trip how I'd forgotten how spectacular this country is, which also brought in gratitude again, for me, because I'd lost it over the past few years, about Australia.

In all that I have experienced over the past seven months, one thing I've come to understand of myself, is that I've realised and understood fully, about the law of attachment. When things were coming my way and going again, I seemed to not be to effected by what was happening around me. Some of these things could have been life changing experiences or a once in a lifetime experience, through it all I just accepted what ever happens, happens for a reason and I mean everything that happens to us on this earth, no matter how trivial we think it is, has a deep reason and hopefully an understanding of ourselves.

Now for some reason, the big ones, I breezed through, I wish I could say the same for the little one's. Boy have fallen for alot of illusions and tests, that have presented themselves in my day to day life. I'm fully aware of how I've been reacting to certain people and events in my life, though for some reason, I have felt stuck and not been able to rise above it. Oh well, it's time to remember what I already know and that is, as I've said many times, everybody, every experience has a gift for us, if we want to blame, be the victim, then the lesson is not learned. Hence the lesson will present itself again and again. Each time in a different body, a different set of circumstances, there's no hiding from it, it will inevitably come into your life, no matter what, SO LEARN.

I was reminded a few months ago, by a friend, about the old saying, 'you know what makes god/goddess laugh the most? when we make plans'. I looked back again over my life and could see, that when my mind made plans, that what I thought was for my highest good, they never materialised. So I guess the key is, to put out to the universe, what you would like to have come into your life and not be attached to the outcome or if it doesn't eventuate, just move on.

Now on a completely different subject, I can highly recommend the CD 'Ma Fleur' by the group Cinematic Orchestra. It's a wonderful CD, maybe not every ones cuppa tea, but it's the best album I've heard in along time.

So now that I'm back online, I'll be placing posts and newsletters as I used to. Many blessings to you all and to the path that you choose.
