The God of My Understanding

Since I started training as an Interfaith minister I have had a lot more conversations about God than ever before in my life. I like these conversations, because every single one of them helps me explore my understanding of what we tend to refer to as ‘God’. The most important question I have been asked…

Go Placidly Amid the Noise

I found this poem by Max Ehrmann on the wall of a church outside of Conna (co. Cork) last weekend. I love it, given the fact it was written in 1927 it couldn’t be more accurate for this present time. I often assume that the way this world is made of noise & haste is…

Breaking all the rules

This month has led me on the path of the Abrahamic traditions. Abrahamic traditions are those religions that trace their origin back to the figure Abraham. Christianity, Judaism, Islam and Eastern Monotheistic religions. Or, in my world, the religions of ‘right and wrong’. Rules are there to be broken. My favourite story to illustrate this,…

The God in Me greets the God in You

I, the fiery light of Wisdom, I ignite the beauty of the plains, I sparkle waters, I burn in the sun, and the moon, and the stars There are few words that come with more pre-conceived notions than the word God. I will tell you that I have plucked up all my courage in writing…

Of Fear and Love

Two weeks ago I was reading the book ‘Conversations with God’ by Naele Donald Walsh. If you like books that make you think and laugh at the same time, I very much recommend you read it. This sentence really struck me, as it seemed so applicable in my life right now: ‘…Every human thought, and…

‘Happiness is not a destination, it is a way of life.’ This blog is not about happiness. This blog is about the journey. As humans we are always on a journey. We are either looking forward to what is coming, looking at the past to what was, looking in the here and now, establishing our…

Spreading Divine Joy

‘Beginning with the early dawn each day, I will radiate joy to everyone I meet. I will be mental sunshine for all who cross my path. I will burn candles of smiles in the bosoms of the joyless. Before the unfading light of my cheer, darkness will take flight. Let my love spread its laughter…

Meditation on your own Divine Light

I love all things simple yet powerful when it comes to meditation. Meditation is such an empowering tool, and it is there for everyone, free for all. During the week I found myself reading a book as one of my clients cancelled her appointment very much last minute, while I was already on my travels….

Happiness

So many people say they ‘just want to be happy.’ However, when it comes down to what they think will make them happy, they find it very hard to answer this. I have only recently discovered the answer to what will make me happy. What I have discovered is that what will make me happy…

I AM

I just experienced the most wonderful deep meditation. One of the perks of my spiritual journey is that I get to meditate a lot, and get to introduce others to meditation and guide them through their first journeys of the mind. I have dedicated blogs to meditation in the past and will do so in the future, as there are so many benefits to practising.
