Look Within Not Without

When your heart hurts because you are feeling sad, sit quietly and rest for a while

Your heart will beat from within you and remind you that you are beautiful inside

Seeking in your life the approval of others will not mend your heart, this will only prolong your pain

Sit with your place of quietness and kindness to the self

For the beauty of self is always within

Stay quiet and look deeper inside for the forgiveness of any fault that you may feel is yours

It is from the deepness within, that your soul will find you to forgive, if you need it

Your soul will awaken the solution to your sadness and cure your hurt

Your soul will not forsake you when you seek its guiding light even from your darkness

Look within not without

Thought for Your Day!

I had the opportunity to read this the other day and thought I would share it.

“The breezes at dawn have secrets to tell you

Don’t go back to sleep!

You must ask for what you really want.

Don’t go back to sleep!

People are going back and forth

across the doorsill where the two worlds touch,

The door is round and open

Don’t go back to sleep!”

Jalaluddin Rumi

Be True to Your Self


The opening lines of a poem titled  ‘Does True Love Ever End’ 

Does True Love Ever End

It started with a gentle smile, a warn feeling and an interest.  It continued through the frequency and continuous opportunity of connection.  It began with that magic sparkle growing which I felt deep inside. 

The Beauty of the Heart

The beauty of the heart

is the lasting beauty:

its lips give to drink

of the water of life.

Truly it is the water,

that which pours,

and the one who drinks.

All three become one when 

your talisman is shattered.

That oneness you can’t know

by reasoning.

by Rumi

The Guest House

What a beautiful piece

Jellaludin Rumi, is a 13th Century Persian poet  – often referred to as ‘Rumi’


The Guest House

This being human is a guest house.

Every morning a new arrival.

A joy, a depression, a meanness,

some momentary awareness comes

as an unexpected visitor.

Welcome and entertain them all!

Even if they are a crowd of sorrows,

who violently sweep your house

empty of its furniture,

still, treat each guest honorably.

He may be clearing you out

for some new delight.

The dark thought, the shame, the malice.

meet them at the door laughing and invite them in.

Be grateful for whatever comes.

because each has been sent

as a guide from beyond.


Jellaludin Rumi

Trust Your Gut

When we are looking for red bricks we start to see them everywhere. Now that I have finished writing the final version of ‘The Savvy Child Within You’, I start to see more writings on the concept to listen to your inner self.

Extract from ‘How to Think like Leonardo da Vinci’ – Michael J Gelb

Bring more attention to your everyday hunches and intuitions. Try writing them down in your notebook and then checking your accuracy. By monitoring your daily intuitions, you hone their accuracy.

Cultivating an accurate, reliable inner guidance system requires listening to your body. Comments such as “My gut tells me otherwise,” I just know it in my bones’” I can feel it in the pit of my stomach,” and I know in my heart of hearts that it must be true” reflects the body-cantered nature of intuition.

Father’s Day

My Father the Hero

Do we ever think of telling our dad how we feel about them?

My father the hero, do I dare to tell?

Yet I remember now as I look on his face so cold

My dad the hero as he would comfort me in the night

Screaming within my dreams, my dad stood there as I momentarily woke

“I have shooed them away, those fears within your head, those terrible folk

I’m here and they will not come back this night “

Who would come now to scare me in my dreams as my Dad stood guard?

From the comfort of his touch I would sleep well, tucked in tight

The morning would come and into the kitchen I would stand

Grumpy in my mood and still half asleep, I would snap and ignore my hero of the night

Yet my Dad would smile and look at me with love

Only the sandman in my eyes, breakfast on my mind

I stand here now with tears in my eyes and ask why I never said

Trying to make it okay within myself

My Dad that kept me safe each night

Yet he is gone now and I can still feel his presence in my ‘doorway of life’

Protecting me from my fears in the day or night

He never faltered as I grew, to care and watch over me

Here I stand feeling safe, made into the man I am

I ask why I never told him how I felt, my old man

My Dad the hero who encourages me, protects me, ensures

I am safe

The Five Senses are the Ministers of the Soul


“The five senses are the ministers of the soul” – Leonard Da Vinci

Da Vinci’s gaze allowed him to capture exquisite and unprecedented subtleties of human expression in his paintings. For the maestro the eye was truly the window of the soul, an as he emphasized repeatedly, “the chief means whereby the understanding may most fully and abundantly appreciate the infinite works of nature.”  – Michael J. Gelb
