    By Grace

    Life is not some beast to be tamed,
    a project to be mastered,
    or your b$*%h to be controlled.

    Life is a gift.
    The gift of Grace.

    And with this recognition
    I bow to the feet of life
    in gratitude.

    Grace courses through us
    in everything we touch,
    in everything we experience.
    There is nothing that isn’t Grace.

    “It’s all by Grace”

    For me is the most powerful and humbling recognition.

    The acknowledgement that I have no control.
    That I am here,
    all of me,
    all of my experiencing
    by Grace.

    And so in this
    it’s all seen as a gift.

    Some call it God.
    Some call it Consciousness.
    Some call it fate.
    There are many names
    all pointing to that ineffable impersonal activity of life.

    I call it Grace.

    The infinite actions and endless possibilities
    of life playing life
    in the ocean of life.

    Wild and unpredictable.

    Plenty of variation,
    but no separation.

    Just as the sun shines on all,
    Grace is in all.

    There are no distinctions of good or bad,
    no questions of right or wrong.

    Everything that happens,
    everything that doesn’t,
    all by Grace.

    Every whisper of a thought,
    every flash of a memory,
    every definitive decision,
    every decisive action,
    every palpable desire,
    every subtle feeling,
    every wave of emotion,
    every happening of life,
    all by Grace.

    And so life is lived,
    by Grace.

    Transgressing The Prescribed Spiritual Path

    In my life journey thus far I’ve had to transgress two* major spiritual paths/groups/movements that were both whole-life encompassing – Guru, lifestyle, friends and family, home, job, it felt like a lot could and would be lost. It’s was for sure a very difficult thing to navigate but I feel it’s important to share and talk about as I see a lot of people dealing with this, particularly in the realm of spiritual organisations.

    Over time I’ve actually come to see that it’s a totally normal and healthy part of ‘spiritual’ development

    An Exploration of Vulnerability

    This exploration of life requires great vulnerability, earnestness, openness, radical honest and deep inquiry. It’s a truly destructive process, one that burns everything that you are not with such a fire that not even a whisper of the false is left. But what this can mean is that which we hold so dearly, so tightly, for so long doesn’t fit into this new paradigm that is tenderly cracking open. Our once core beliefs and truths don’t feel like ours any more and so we’re required to drop them, to move on, to take a leap of faith into the unknown.

    It’s this continuous release into the unknown where freedom lies. It’s not a position to take but a
