My elderly cat, sitting at the end of my bed. I know she won’t be with me for much longer, which makes me feel a bit sad, but such is the way of things in this plane. In the same way the beautiful autumn leaves are clinging on against a gusting wind today. New lives and leaves will follow in their time. Birth and death is all around us and it’s amazing!
That what happens is what needs to happen. Life has it’s own agenda. Sometimes we can make choices and other times we have to learn to accept what happens and in time we will see the lesson that is there to be learned.
I’m excited by the awareness I have now. My lifetime has been a spiritual quest and I feel I now know who I really am and I feel secure in that. I feel connected to All That Is and although, in this body, I feel really ill, the feeling of connectedness gives me an alive, yet peaceful feeling.
I will notice all the little things that bring me joy today.
Here the sun is shining and the weather itself is peaceful ?
My meditation brings me to a peaceful space which then spreads out around me, hopefully helping others to feel peaceful within themselves ?
I am passionate about my spiritual development. If I can be who I truly am and not get lost in the dramas of everyday life I change the world just by who I am and living by the principles that I believe in.
I have recently been listening to and working my way through a huge collection of recordings of lectures and talks by Ram Das. These have been lovingly put together and are freely available on Youtube and Ram Das is such a good storyteller.
Listening to these recordings has helped me to deepen my sense of connectedness.

Wishing you all a peace filled day ❤️
By letting the light of Love shine through me. Not always softly and passively but, when necessary, strongly for justice and equality for all living beings.
Thank you to everyone who has taken the time to write a reflection today. They have all been so inspiring and leave me feeling joyful ?
Years ago I had a wonderful older woman friend. She was my rock during a very difficult time in my life and a foster-granny to my son. I watched her patience and her joy and kindness and I wanted to grow to be like her. I hope I’ve succeeded. I think I have !
What a beautiful moment, Kevin. Thanks for sharing 😊
Dear Antoinette, I know only too well the pain, fatigue and relentlessness of migraines. You are never alone. Sending you a big hug 🤗 x
🤣 Good point, Pilgrim x
Bless you pkr. May you find the strength you need 🙏 x
Oh sunnypatti 😂 All I can say by way of encouragement is “This too shall pass” !!
Oh yes, Patrica, I can relate to that. When we find ourselves with illnesses or disabilities it shows up very clearly what we can and can’t do and I am so grateful for what I can still do, even though there are a lot of things I need help with.
My illness has taught me a great deal. The teacher Ram Das calls illness and disability fierce grace! xx
Thank you, Ed ?
Thank you, Ed, that’s really interesting. I’d like to learn more about that.
Hello to a fellow butterfly, Papilio ?
