Honouring Those We Love

A heartfelt tribute to our connected humanity… Please feel…

How do we honour those we feel deeply for, those we are bonded to? We revere them for exactly what they are, how they show up and how they present themselves. How do we allow others to be who they are?

We make them feel safe, we provide them the space to be authentic without judgement, to demonstrate to their own selves their worthiness, their prowess, their ability and their congruent power.

As a people we flourish when we are seen for who we are. When we are able to be seen in this way we live openly, devoid of fear, we are ourselves, we remove the masks, we feel accepted, we feel grounded, secure and empowered in our being.

To be who we wish to be, to honour ourselves. From this space we make choices based on our something felt, something directly experienced. We make choices, take action, connect and feel fully. In this fullness of feeling we are truth, we are embodied, we are real.

In this moment (where we feel that we are held, where we know we are safe) all is unraveled. In this unravelling we ‘right’ our ‘wrongs’, we realise what is important and we allow ourselves to be free. To be free in our hearts to act from a place of integrity and concern for others and for ourselves.

Here, life is death and death is life. We ‘sacrifice’ our own existence for the betterment of others. It is here, momentarily in this space we realise (soulfully and completely) the infinite nature of our reality and our being. It is here we release all attachments and all that matters is the wellbeing of others.

Martyrdom, not quite. Sacrifice and cost, not quite. The truth of unity consciousness, yes. We realise that to serve others is to serve ourselves. Those that can embrace this truth are those that realise the value of any given moment, those that realise the power of selfless action immerse in to a release from fearing the unknown.

To honour others is to revere their life for what it is. To express an emotion when we feel paralysed, to break through pain and still give all that we are, to recognise the magnificence in another, in ourselves and in consciousness when we are engulfed in fear, ignorance and distraction is a gift to our own journey.

When we choose to admire, revere, honour and accept others for who they are, we are honouring ourselves for what we are. Not needing to change to ‘fit in’, not forcing ourselves to be something or someone we are not. We give others permission to do so and be so also.

When we feel we are losing, we are giving, gaining and growing. When we ‘lose’ those we love there is so much wisdom in this unwinding of what was in to something that now is… In this space of ‘is’ we become present and the permeating truths of the cosmos present themselves openly to us.

Death is difficult as it is seamless. Death of the old, is a rebirth of the new. Death is a celebration of transformation. In death life is renewed. To accept death is to embrace life. To revere death and honour the lives of those we love is to accept what is real and honour those who respected life for what it is – ultimately infinite.

To accept others is deeply revealing and honouring. In this honouring we pay homage to life as it is. Without regret, without rigid expectation and without tainting life with our layered perception and unconscious influence.

This level of healthy acceptance is what bonds us deeply. Acceptance means honouring what we feel through our experiences and through our observations and not tainting others with harsh judgement.

One is always glad to be of service.

Initiate, Connect, Feel

Too many of us hide behind our wounding. We are not present and we are running on a program of what we think others or society want us to be and do. The truth is, when we behave like this we are non-committal, distant and we perceive ourselves to be fractured.

Where Do You Place Your Kindness?

Some of us find it easier to serve a global mission, donate blood, feed a starving village or be physically present at a natural disaster, rebuilding the homes, lives and social structures of others, then to be present to the intimate and immediate needs of a loved one…

Sacred Sexuality

The practical sense of REAL and TRUE sacred sexuality is supporting and seeing each other through uncertainty and vulnerability.
Sacred sexuality allows us not to hide, to be open in our bodies.
Sacred sexuality allows us to trust. This frees us so we do not harbour pain and tension.

Sacred Sexuality – Experiencing Deepened Consciousness

Sexual union is something that has been deeply distorted throughout the cultural and social fabric of our existence for quite some time. There is a profound sacredness that comes from being intimately connected and in union with another…

Go Deep To Go Far

There is so much superficial shit out there. The problem isn’t superficiality, the ‘puzzle’ (as opposed to the problem) is we remain in the superficial for too long. We are too scared to venture into the deep (we will come back around to this).

The superficial is actually healthy and a place where we can find common ground. Imagine being on a date – getting to know someone and your first question is: “so tell me your deepest childhood trauma”?
