It’s very tempting to deal with experiences of fear and loss, sickness and pain purely on their own terms. But, by adopting the utterly limited view they present of myself as a perishable body, I’m denying myself the natural access to healing.
“God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. The heathen raged, the kingdoms were moved: he uttered his voice, the earth melted. Be still, and know that I am God.” (Psalm 46: 1, 6, 10) The other day, my mother’s friend phoned her late at night in distress. Someone had broken […]
“And the LORD God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it. And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat […]
“For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he.” (Proverbs 23: 7) You’ve all heard that what you think or believe is what you create. Is this truth? Yes and no. I have come to realise that since all thoughts are creative, you can create whatever you want. If you can think it, it […]
There’s an interesting billboard ad running at the moment for Baileys. In it is a picture of an eye in the middle with what looks like spiral rays coming from the eye. On each ray are the words “don’t look.” Of course when someone says “don’t look” you’re going to look, right? 😉
When I was a child, my favourite TV series was Mission Impossible. The team was always given a difficult mission that seemed downright impossible, but they were always successful. I use the same theme in my life but in a different way. I am now going to discuss some things in my life that I […]
I stopped wearing a watch a year and a half ago, but hey, whose counting? I did carry a timepiece in my bag just in case, but it stopped working months back. I didn’t see any point replacing the battery, as there are so many public clocks around. Besides, I live with someone who collects […]
“Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the LORD of hosts.” (Zechariah 4: 6) I’m sitting around doing nothing in particular when a big giant appears. “Hi Enocia,” he says. “Who are you?” “I’m your genie.” “So? What do you want from me?”
Money, that thing people strive for. You fight to have it, work hard for it, con people to get more of it, and even kill for it. Is it worth it? Well, we live in a reality where everything appears to have a price.
Two days ago, I met a lovely woman on the bus. She was from Bulgaria but now lives in Germany. She and her husband were in London for two days. She was trying to get to a toy store in central London. As our bus had only gone part of the way, I offered to […]
I’ve heard the word “love” used so many times. I have pondered over what love means and whether we all mean the same thing. I’ve come to the conclusion that, as long as I know what it means for me and live that principle, it’s the only thing that matters. I am now going to […]
I was walking down the road when I saw a dog pacing up and down in front of a house. He would trot as far as the wall, bang his head hard against the wall, then he ran the other way barking at no one in particular. After a few moments of observing his behaviour, […]
I hear the word, “oneness,” bandied around. What exactly does it mean? When I meditate or get into inner silence, I am being myself – the One. However, when I am experiencing life, I am practising oneness. Oneness is a state of being in a relationship with all life. How does it work?
Two days ago, I met an interesting woman on the bus. She was a professional actor who specialises in background work, also known as Extras. If you’ve ever watched a drama or movie and you see people in the background, she is one of them. When I was at university, I considered becoming an Extra […]
“The substance of a dream is held in materialization by the subconscious thought of the dreamer. When that cohesive thought is withdrawn in wakefulness, the dream and its elements dissolve. A man closes his eyes and erects a dream-creation which, on awakening, he effortlessly dematerializes. He follows the divine archetypal pattern. Similarly, when he awakens […]
“And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear.” (Isaiah 65: 24) “…when the self is in communion with a higher power, nature automatically obeys, without stress or strain, the will of man. This effortless command over nature is called ‘miraculous’ by […]
“For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.” (John 1: 17) How does forgiveness work? Can you forgive yourself, someone else or a situation, when you are living by the law? Is this not a contradiction in terms?
Last night, I watched a wonderful documentary called Touching the Void based on a book of the same name by Joe Simpson. The story follows two young climbers’ attempt to reach the summit of Siula Grande in Peru. In the meantime, their new friend, Richard, a non-mountaineer, is back at base camp looking after their […]
I have observed that telepathy is very natural. To be adept at telepathy takes lots of observation and practise. We tend to think of telepathy as someone apart from you sending a thought to you which you try to pick up. To be able to read another’s thought one has to be coming from the […]
“All the world’s a stage, And all the men and women merely players: They have their exits and their entrances; And one man in his time plays many parts, His acts being seven ages.” (“As You Like It,” by William Shakespeare) I’ve heard some people say they are here to use their God-given talents to […]
“D’you wanna be in my gang, my gang, my gang, D’you wanna be in my gang (oh yeah) D’you wanna be in my gang, my gang, my gang, D’you wanna be in my gang” From I’m the Leader of the Gang (I Am) by Gary Glitter Last night, I watched a movie called Romy and […]
Two days ago I experienced an aura, the initial symptom of a migraine headache, when I get partial vision followed by a headache. Not again! The bus I was on was driving past the Arts Centre. I got off the bus and headed for the Poetry Library where I was going to wait for the […]
A few days ago, the Inner Voice informed me something was about to occur. Apparently, my mother was going to need lots of support when, whatever it is, happened. I pressed for more details but this part of me was, surprisingly, reticent. As I trust in myself, I simply believed and let go.
I watched a drama series last night on television called Spooks. It’s about a British Secret Intelligence group who, in this episode, are trying to stop a terrorist attack. A scientist is approached by a representative from a terrorist group to create a chemical weapon. The terrorist warns the scientist that if he doesn’t comply, […]
“But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.” (Genesis 2: 17) “For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he.” (Proverbs 23: 7) In my view, there is no such thing as good […]
Yesterday, I had a wonderful experience. I woke up with symptoms of a flu: coughing, sneezing and feeling like “death warmed up.” Since I know the flu has no reality in my universe, I decided to go with the experience. The last time I was laid up like this, I made a huge shift in […]
I once read the following story in Al Koran’s book, “Bring Out the Magic in Your Mind.” A woman is dreading doing the household chores. She remembers she has an energy pill in her pocket that someone had given her. She swallows the pill and immediately has tons of energy. She does the work effortlessly. […]
“If I can see it, then I can do it If I just believe it theres nothing to it” From: “I believe I Can Fly” by R Kelly I believe everything is based on beliefs. You cannot experience life without having a belief. Hell, if I didn’t believe I was real enough to be sitting […]
