I managed to catch sunset last Sunday evening, quite spectacular. I just love the light at this time of year, so too the clarity and lightness of the air. We really do need to make sure to ground, otherwise we will be taking off with all that vata - make sure to apply cream to your skin too, it tends to suffer when the air is so light and bright.
I have been reading this fantastic book by Tim Freke about being spiritually awake in the real world. There is this wonderful chapter about meaning and magic, about how one can manifest one's intentions into life. Tim quotes his 8 year old daughter who says:
"Imagination and reality sync together to make one thing. A thought transfers itself to reality. If you transfer your thought from your head to your heart, it comes out as reality...but never quite as your expect".
Wow she is spot on - they must have some interesting conversations over supper in their family!!
We can manifest, there is no doubt about it, but we need to feel it first, from the heart. And yes, it does not always manifest as we intended, that is why they say you should be careful about what you pray for.
Anyhow, I wanted to share this lovely Tibetan Buddhist prayer with you:
"May all beings have happiness and the causes of happiness.
May all beings be free from suffering and the causes of suffering.
May all beings never be parted from freedom's true joy.
May all beings dwell in equanimity, free from attachment and aversion".
With love and light,
