Swirls and Vortexes...

The importance of living in the present moment, the here and now, has never been more apparent to me, than now! Living fully in the present means - without being burdened by the past or worrying about the future to the extent - that it prevents us from acting and actualising the present. Easier said, than done, of course! So much of our pain and distress stems from the fact, that we insist on holding on to things. Our inability to let things go are a source of great distress and pain. The only certainty in life, is the certainty of change, the inevitability of change. The sooner we accept that and experience every change with equanimity and a calmness of spirit, the better will life be.

Time is forever swirling around; A great vortex of creation and destruction and creation again and in between all these points in infinity, lies the continuum of life. But how much attention do we pay to the real meaning of life? How many of us would like to confront and contemplate on the end of our own existence and those of our near and loved ones? And is this 'end' really an end? And whether it is or isn't, it becomes imperative that we take a good look at the lives we lead. A cluttered life, where the pace is frantic, where time and space are filled with so many (artificial) needs and desires - that - those very needs and desires end up devouring us, robbing us of peace and tranquillity. A return to simplicity - that is the call I hear, that is the drum beat I yearn to dance to...


Orange and gold painted itself in a slow glow from the horizon, a gentle breeze blew, riffling a few leaves and they swirled around in circles before gently settling down on the earth. The mild chill of autumn is everywhere and as trees turn colours, i feel life taking on new hues. This moment complete in itself and so is life....
