A Higher Force to Guide Us

img_7295img_7338-2img_7249-2Live in the present moment to stay in the Flow of Life.  

No need to plan ahead.  Respond to life as it happens.

When we’re in the Flow of Life, we are naturally trusting in a Higher Force to guide us.

We let go of trying to control everything ourselves.

Get back in the Flow of Life where everything happens naturally at the right time.

to taste experience to the utmost,

to reach out eagerly and without fear

for newer and richer experience.”

We Are Eternally Free

009-2010-2008-2

We are in the flowers and in the trees, in the birds and in the breeze.  

WE ARE LIFE.  WE ARE NATURE.  WE ARE DIVINE.  WE ARE ETERNITY – in every moment.

LIFE and LOVE are inextricably intertwined.

The only Ultimate Reality is LOVE.

Love is the only thing that cannot be created.  But it can be re-born within us.  

It is our very essence, our true nature.  

WE ARE LIFE AND LOVE

AND WE ARE ETERNALLY FREE!!

“It seems to me that the natural world is the greatest source of excitement;

the greatest source of visual beauty;

the greatest source of intellectual interest.

It is the greatest source of so much in life that makes life worth living.”

David Attenborough

According to legend, this stone monument, situated in a field alongside the River Glaslyn, marks the resting place of Gelert, the faithful dog of the mediaeval Welsh prince, Llewelyn the Great. The story, as written on the tombstone, reads:

“In the 13th century Llewelyn, prince of North Wales, had a palace at Beddgelert. One day he went hunting without Gelert, ‘The Faithful Hound’, who was unaccountably absent.

On Llewelyn’s return the truant, stained and smeared with blood, joyfully sprang to meet his master. The prince alarmed hastened to find his son, and saw the infant’s cot empty, the bedclothes and floor covered with blood.

The frantic father plunged his sword into the hound’s side, thinking it had killed his heir. The dog’s dying yell was answered by a child’s cry.

Llewelyn searched and discovered his boy unharmed, but nearby lay the body of a mighty wolf which Gelert had slain. The prince filled with remorse is said never to have smiled again. He buried Gelert here”.
