When your feeling helpless, help someone!!!



Yesterday Alex and I were doing our blogs together and this was Alex's topic.
It stayed with me all day so I want to share it.

Women of Hope is an incredibly beautiful song by my friend Morley. Here's what Morley wrote about this song:

"This is a song that I wrote after watching a CNN program on women and war. There are three vignettes: the first is in Rwanda; the second in Mexico, Somalia and Tibet; and the third is in Burma. I quote Aung San Suu Kyi...when her people asked her for a message, saying how helpless they feel under military rule, she responded by saying, "If you're feeling helpless, help someone." This moved me because it is so brilliant of her to empower her people like that. I found so much inspiration and truth in her words that it got me thinking of all the countless women of hope."





WOWWWWW!! soo powerful, sooo inspiring, motivating, loving and awakening.
This video deserves 50.000,000 viewings.

Thank you Morley for the eagerness of a torchbearer.

G- always ;-)

If you take two individuals with identical lifetime hours of meditation practice, there are more lasting changes in people who have gone on retreats (brains and behaviour).

This week I was thinking about how challenging it can be to be who we are and live in our place of heart when there are so many directives and expectations that we should behave in a particular way. How we present ourselves to the world and how we think are so influenced by our upbringing, peers and culture...

Rumi says "Let the beauty of what we love be what we do." I'm counting my blessings, both having carved a life by creating contemplative jewellery and now also enjoying the opportunity to create experience for people though retreats. 

 It took a long time for my body and mind to readjust from east to west, as it always does. Between the 10 hour time difference and the culture extremes, the practice of coupling patience and tenacity definitely came in handy.
