My Work is Loving the World, by Mary Oliver

I am learning to love the world. It is not easy when people are ill and dying..., when the body-clothes are falling apart. Being in nature, being still helps. Gratitude for the present moment, for having the breath, the body in the present moment, for the time we have been here together, can also help. But I am still learning to remember this in the moments when life is testing me.

I love Rachel's books - the stories are deeply heart warming and healing. This story could be about any spiritual practice - all it need is our faithfulness.

Having struggled with decision making/choices most of my life, this makes a lot of sense. Having experienced consensus recently in a team I work with, gives me hope that what is happening around me, is happening within as well. Thanks for sharing.

How Caterpillar Turns Into A Butterfly, by Norie Huddle

FaceBook  On Nov 3, 2020 mamta nanda wrote:
Since the beginning of lockdown, this image of caterpillar metamorphosing into a butterfly has sustained me. When the lockdown first started to be lifted, I did not feel ready. I felt that the metamorphosis is not complete yet. At this time I am suffering from eczema like symptoms, where my body seems to be doing something that is unexpected. Reading this gives me hope that the deeper innate intelligence of the body, of the Universe, knows what is needed. I, and we, will get there. Thank you for sharing this at this time.

What Can You Trust?, by Doug Powers

FaceBook  On May 12, 2020 Mamta Nanda wrote:
There is no one truth. The truth, as you say keeps changing. Perhaps the call of this time of so much uncertainty is to be flexible. Keep listening, and trust the guidance that arises in that moment. The source of this guidance may keep changing. But that is okay. At this time of so much uncertainty and change, it feels as if something new is coming through about trust. Thank you for sharing your thoughts and helping me realise this. Trust has not been easy for me either. The relationship is getting better each day, with each breath.

Time is a Season, by David Whyte

 Thank you for this beautiful sharing. Helps me to make friends with time. I feel this is one of the vital ingredients for peace. I had never thought about time like this before. I had been wishing to be more present - but of course present moment is a slice of time. Something seems to be clicking into place deep inside me through your sharing.


Call Me by My True Names, by Thich Nhat Hanh

FaceBook  On Jul 15, 2015 mamta wrote:

 Wow! Amazing words! They help me to see myself in everyone and everything - not just the aspects of life I like to be part of, but also inspire me to not avert my eyes from aspects of life that are difficult to look at or to be with - and use them to help me see and accept parts of myself that may be hidden. 
Very inspiring to help accept all that is.
Helps me to understand the word interbeing much better. Thank you.


Money is a Lot Like Water, by Lynne Twist

I have heard that Masaru Emoto used to teach that the water we consume, the water that flows out through our drains - if we bless it, express gratitude for it, this water that goes around the planet, through the water cycle raises the vibration of all the water. More of us who do this, better place the world we live in will be. It felt wonderful to be reminded that I can do this with money too.
