Be the change you want to see in the world

On this 10th anniversary of the 2002 Bail Bombing (12 October) we remember the victims and their families and hope for a more peaceful world. Last week  (2 October) was Mahatma Gandhi’s birthday, celebrated as a national holiday in India and as International Non-Violence Day around the world. Perhaps its a good time to reflect on how we can play our part (however small) in … Read More

What word would you add?

A simple post today. I like to play with words (you may have guessed). I reckon that when we make forgiveness our starting point we can find love, hope, peace, yinyangbalance and grace. What would be your scrabble word selection? Harmony, Happiness, Gratitude? Why not share the words you’d like to add in the comments below. Happy scrabbling:)

Yin Yang clock - sunrises and sunsets

How often do you get up for a sunrise? How often do you stop to appreciate a sunset? I made this video to celebrate some of the beautiful sunrises and sunsets I’ve seen. From climbing Mt Warning to see the sunrise over Australia’s most easterly point – my husband and I did the 2.5 hour climb in the darkness, one … Read More

The beauty of impermanence - the snowy beach in Canada

Our footprints in life are as evanescent as our footprints in the sand, or in the snow, which makes enjoying the journey all the more important. You really need to seize the moment to leave your mark on a snowy Canadian beach! The yinyang symbol so simply symbolises the impermanence of all things – there is an endless flow between … Read More

(Or I could write a thesis on impatience) Impatience is a topic I could have written a thesis about. If only I’d been patient enough to stick at it! In suffering infertility, I WAITED a very long time (or what felt like an ETERNITY) to fall pregnant. I WAITED in doctor’s surgeries, the scent of ‘horrormones’ hanging in the air, … Read More

Help! Who Am I (and who are you)?

Who am I?

I feel like I have so many identities these days, in both the online and real world. And I don’t think I’m the only one suffering an identity crisis! It’s all these online ID’s I’m required to have (and I don’t mean on Second Life or secretly moonlighting as Miss Crystal Wildfire or anything like that) that are driving me crazy.

Yinyang – the hot and cold of it (and the shades of grey)

yin and yang the hot and cold of it

One of the first words Little Yang said (after Mum, but before Dad!) was HOT. This of course was because he was told repeatedly ‘don’t touch, HOT’ around cups of tea or coffee. And we would blow any food that was warmed a little too much with the warning ‘HOT, HOT’. To him HOT naturally came to mean ‘BAD’ – … Read More

Laugh at life

I have three ‘Laughing Buddhas’ who occasionally go on adventures! The ‘laughing Buddha’ is a nickname for a popular Chinese folklore deity Budai. Budai is usually depicted as a fat, bald man who is almost always smiling and laughing. He is widely recognised in Chinese culture as a symbol of contentment. Budai is believed to have been a Chinese Buddhist monk … Read More

Balance doesn’t have to be boring

Yin Yang circle 2 copy - Copy

I like to bang on about balance – but that doesn’t make me boring – does it? My version of balance is one of being centred when we are out there pursuing adventures or taking on challenges and when we are taking time out to reflect. Let me explain.

The Spring/Fall Equinox – all things are pretty equal

Spring Equinox sunrise

We got up for the sunrise to mark the Spring Equinox down-under. Sunrises are always worth getting up for. And its a great day to celebrate balance – the sun shines directly over the equator and the night and day are almost equal! Of course that will change tomorrow.
