The Big Me Dances

The universe, the world, is how it all occurs to me as a happening, an event, a contingency.

Recalling the words of Baha’u’llah as I would apply them to myself, “… the world is my unawareness of the Godhead and my absorption in aught else…” and that truth is founded in the primary spiritual attitude of the unfettered search: detachment from tradition; avoiding backbiting, boastful people, and evil-doers; cleansing the heart from love, hate, and pride; and living in prayer, patience, resignation, and forgiveness. 128 more words

Where the rainforest meets the reef

I was very grateful to have a break from working long days at two jobs to sneak up to Cairns for my friend Sarah’s birthday. Had such a blast, hopping from reefs to rainforests, we snorkelled off Sarah’s boat and swam with Giant Trevally at Michaelmas Cay, we went on rainforest walks to swim in amazing waterfalls, we visited the butterfly sanctuary at Kuranda, we sang our lungs out at a empty karaoke bar and most of all, we sweated our bums off. 93 more words

A new year and it’s about time I got back to work. My dearly beloved says I’m just lazy. Up to a point, Lord Copper. Fact is, my natural tendency to procrastination has been reinforced lately by an attack of the I-don’-wannas fuelled by I-dunno-what. 3,647 more words
