We are spiritual beings momentarily in a physical body.

Traveling life’s road in an amazing journey

and learning wisdom, love and compassion

for all,ourselves included.

How we look and what we see


Just thought I’d share this obvious truth that we all so often forget. This site has many other great reminders that make one’s journey smoother. Namaste Brita

Today I want to share a prayer with you

May Love’s Glorious Light
Shine on me always
May it remove the veil
of my limited human self
and reveal its presence in me
May the truth of this Love
never stray from my heart
and may I seek this truth
all of my remaining days

A Blessing Called Bob.



We have a very special friend called Bob who has been in our lives for many, many years. I would love to post his picture for you  but he would hate it. As his name suggests he seems at first meeting a down to earth, ordinary bloke but perceptions are seldom accurate, Bob is truly amazing!

He, like many, would do anything to help anyone but these days he does stuff everyday to help everyone!

Did I hear you say “Wow!”?

What he does is he gives as well as receives. His gift’s are the priceless treasures that lift your spirit and inspire you and when you get them you immediately tuck them away in your heart for a rainy day when the world looks grim and hope seems a very fragile thing. They don’t cost him a lot, just a kind thought and the click of a mouse for they have been sent as emails to him from all over the world by friends that he has met in his travels. Bob seldom sends stuff about himself and what he’s up to but everyone loves his emails and he sends lots because Bob has always been generous. Each day you receive beautiful picture, jokes, incredible stories and today this one that I just had to share. It said on the bottom


“Share this with someone you want blessed.”

I hope you are blessed by it as I was.

Most of all I pray that Bob is blessed for just being Bob!

Namaste Brita.



1. Don’t miss the boat.

2. Remember that we are all in the same boat!

3. Plan ahead. It wasn’t raining when Noah built the Ark.

4. Stay fit. When you’re sixty years old, someone may ask you to do something really big.

5. Don’t listen to critics; just get on with the job that needs to be done.

6. Build your future on high ground.

7. For safety sake travel in pairs.

8. Speed isn’t always an advantage. The snails were on board with the cheetahs.

9. When you’re stressed, float awhile.

10. Remember the Ark was built by amateurs; the Titanic by professionals.

11. No matter what the storm, when you are with God, there is always a rainbow waiting.




Little Hope


Had to share this beautiful prayer for we all need hope every minute of our lives and it is so fragile and easily lost.

Hold my hand, little hope
Don’t let me go astray
I cannot sail without your wind
Lift my sails, I pray

Lead my ship to better shores
Where I can find some rest
I cannot sleep without your dreams
So build for them a nest
And Place it in my weary heart
To give my soul some rest

Sing for me, little hope
Don’t fly away so soon
Brush your wings against my heart
And my heart will sing in tune

Hold my hand, little hope
Don’t let me go astray
I cannot fly without your wings
Carry me, I pray

Sing for Love!


We seldom think of babies dying it is too painful, too hard, and the question “Why?” is often asked only to be left hanging unanswered. In my lifetime I have witnessed death often and see it as calling us home as I know we go on existing as spirit. I have seen the passing of loved ones cause so much pain but I have also seen it produce some of the most beautiful experiences I have ever been privileged to be a part of. While listening to this beautiful lullaby I meditated on sending peace and love to all the many women in the world who will lose a precious child today perhaps you would like to also support them in this way.

Today I am going to share something personal with you. I love singing! I have loved it since I was a little girl. I am not very talented or gifted when it comes to singing. I am not being modest, it is just the truth.

I used to sing lullabies for my cousins when I was younger, to make them sleep at night. They always prefered my voice.

When I was a teenager I was told that my voice was too soft and frail, and not powerful enough to be a singer. So I stopped singing.

Then some years ago, something happened. I had joined a meditation group, and in one particular session we were remembering our loved ones who had recently passed over to the other side. One of my friends had just lost her unborn baby, and I wanted to do something for her and her Angel-baby, so…

When you can’t think straight…MEDITATE!






Recently I was really stressed by a situation that involved helping a loved one. A thousand thoughts and emotions flooded through my mind, I simply couldn’t think straight and the harder I tried the more tired and confused I became. Then someone said the magic words “LET GO” to me and I remembered to make time to meditate. In the spaciousness of meditation I was able to view my thoughts and emotions with a totally unbiased attitude. When your attitude changes your whole mind changes, even the nature of your thoughts and emotions change. I simply sat and watched my thoughts drift by like the sky watching clouds pass through it. I noticed love, fear, anxiety and a feeling of wanting to control the situation drift by but didn’t try to grasp them, cling to them or indulge in them. I merely observed that, like the wind, they came and went. In allowing them to flow through my mind while keeping my mind free of afterthoughts and possible solutions I found them quickly settle and from a new detached space I was free to see the reality of the situation. What I could change and what I just needed to let go. It was amazing what a difference it made.

Sogyal Rinpoche  said,

“In the ordinary mind we perceive the stream of thoughts as continuous in reality this is not the case , You will discover for yourself that there is a gap between each thought. When the past thought is past and the future thought has not yet arisen, you will always find a gap in which  Rigpa, the nature of mind is revealed. So the work of meditation is to allow thoughts to slow down, to make that gap more and more apparent.”

Learning to meditate certainly takes a bit of effort but the effort is more than repaid by the peace and clarity you find and yes the situation resolved itself, working out far better for everyone concerned, than I could ever have dreamed of.
