Chris Cade had an intent. He had decided if people would learn to write their own life stories as he had done, they would improve their lives as he had done. He set up a web site, got a few friends to promote his pre launch launch and posted a 9 minute video, explaining what he was trying to do and promising to personally respond to those who wrote their stories about… Continue

*My Own Free Will*

"I went there of my own free will.

I went there in my finest gown,

With my rarest Jewels

With my Queen of Heaven crown.

In the Underworld

At each of the Seven Gates

I was stripped Seven times

Of all I thought I was

Till I stood bare in who I really am."

"I stay here of my own free will.

My skin my finest gown,

With my precious jewel of love.

With my Queen of heart crown.

At… Continue

Wishing everyone a wonderful holiday period and a Happy 2010

Over the past few months I've been putting down foundations for a new project I'm going to be starting. It's a creative project but under wraps at the moment. I'm starting to really focus on it this week and will be putting some good time and energy into it until early Spring 2010.
I wish everyone here a peaceful and Happy Christmas and a wonderful 2010.

Choosing Not To Be A Target (Emotional Attacks)

This is from DailyOM:

Choosing Not To Be a Target, Emotional Attacks

Hurtful confrontations often leave us feeling drained and confused. When someone attacks us emotionally, we may wonder what we did to rouse their anger, and we take their actions personally. We may ask ourselves what we could have done to compel them to behave or speak that way toward us. It’s important to remember that there are no real targets in an emotional attack and that it is usually a way for…

A Buddhist Poem - "Be A Bud"

Be A Bud

Be a bud sitting quietly on the hedge.

Be a smile, one part of wondrous existence.

Stand here. There is no need to depart.

*The Fireplace*


by Anne R. C. Neale

I see the glow of the yellow and red flames

As the fire burns so bright,

It brings an inner warmth inside of me

As I sit there by its light,

The fireplace is so awesome,

As the wood begins to glow,

While outside in the yard you see

Is hail and sleet and snow.

The fire crackles and hisses

As the flames burst way up high.

A screen is in front… Continue

The Ripple Effect - Everything You Do Matters

This is from DailyOM:

Everything You Do Matters - The Ripple Effect

In a world of six billion people, it’s easy to believe that the only way to initiate profound transformation is to take extreme action. Each of us, however, carries within us the capacity to change the world in small ways for better or worse. Everything we do and think affects the people in our lives, and their reactions in turn affect others. As the…

"The Real Buddha" - A Poem By Huang Po

The Real Buddha

People perform a vast number of complex practices

hoping to gain spiritual merit as countless as the grains

of sand on the riverbed of the Ganges:

but you are essentially already perfect in every way.

Don’t try and augment perfection with meaningless practice.

If it’s the right occasion to perform them, let practices happen.

When the time has passed, let them stop.

If you are…
