Overcoming fear and finding your strength

Posted on Nov 3, 2011 in Healing, Spiritual living

Your personal lizard of fear

I love that poem by Marianne Williamson that begins “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.”

But what does that mean? How can we be afraid of our own strength and why would we avoid it? Our strengths can often be hidden in our weaknesses, covered over and cleverly disguised by past hurts and fears of being hurt again in the future.

River stones balanced by an anonymous artistI am so lucky to live here in the heart of Wales and to be surrounded by natural beauty at all times. But over the last couple of years I, along with all the inhabitants of this small market town, have been treated to a more surprising symmetry.

Semele Xerri as Lady Capulet in Romeo & JulietRehearsing and performing Romeo and Juliet with the Willow Globe Company has, as ever, brought important life issues to my attention.

Our directors Phil and Sue are fantastic and always say we don’t have to worry about that but let the words speak for themselves – and they really do. Shakespeare is amazing at packing acres of character and information into a couple of lines.

Falling – gravity as a spiritual lesson

Posted on Apr 4, 2011 in Spiritual living

Falling by Leona De Lioncourt

I’m in danger of sounding like I do nothing but watch TV, but I won’t apologise for watching another excellent TV programme – The Wonders of the Universe.

The subject was gravity, and Dr Brian Cox completely blew me away with this simple explanation of a complex force. Gravity means that absolutely everything is falling into everything else, irresistibly and continually following the curves of space time created by the pulls from all the stars, planets and galaxies in the universe. Gravity is by its very nature both creative and destructive.

The Human (or should that be Nature) Planet

Posted on Feb 25, 2011 in Spiritual living

I watched Human Planet last night – a fantastic BBC TV programme if you get the chance to see it. The series looks at extreme environments on the planet and how humans in those places have adapted incredible and resourceful techniques for survivng within them. Two of the stories really spoke to me personally in this particular programme which focused on rivers.
