Spirituality

What is 'Spirituality'?

Here we're exploring the concept of general spirituality. What does it mean to be spiritual? How do we live in a spiritual way, within society? How might being aligned with your spirituality, bring a greater sense of joy and fulfillment to your life?

We're offering points of view here, which we believe in passionately. But we're not claiming them to be the 'absolute truth' - it is our truth, designed to help catalyse an evolutionary shift in your own truth. To us, that's a key facet of the spirit - that each has their own perspective on reality, which are all equally valid. But let us challenge and continually evolve our perspective.

In so doing, we find it brings us increasingly into alignment with the natural flow of the universe. Life becomes increasingly aligned and sublime. Explore...

What is Success? - A spiritual perspective

What ‘success’ means is unique and personal to each of us. Yet most of us still live in a society where success is determined by what ‘people out there’ have decided success is. In fact, an inward feeling (often hidden) of 'not feeling good enough’ because of ‘what other people will think’ is one of the most common concerns that I see amongst awakening people. Personal worth is still frequently measured by what we have to show for what we’ve done - material goods, exams passed, property gained, certificates achieved, goals attained or targets reached. And by far the biggest determining factor of success is the degree to which a person is validated and approved by others.

If you don’t fall under any of these categories, then you are blessed!

The Journey: just like flying


Whether we know or not, each of us is on a journey. Even when you touch presence, that's not the end, just the beginning. It's not a fixed journey, it's constantly shifting and changing according to the realisations we make. Destiny is not a destination, but a way of being. There's a constant underlying pull designed purely to reveal the majesty and splendour of who you are. If we know how to align with this underlying pull, in every moment, then our lives will become simply magical. The "aha" moment lands that actually, there's simply nothing else going on...

Are You Creating You or Being You?

When we embark on the spiritual journey we have two main choices:

We can either:
1. create who we want to be
Or
2. be who we truly are

There are many ways to the top of the metaphorical mountain. There are also many ways to ensure that we keep walking around and around in circles. In this article we'll look at the difference between the two...

Freeing the Spirit


When the soul speaks, we often feel an upwelling that compels us to do something out of the ordinary. Moments of vision take us into a realm of awe and wonder. Limitations dissolve. We melt into infinite possibility. Immortality of the soul dawns. We are boundless. We are free.

And just as we get going - something snaps us back in to the ‘real world’! The dream is obliterated. It seems like a far fetched fantasy. The mountain is insurmountable; so we carry on as before...

Your beacon of Light in a world of darkness

Beyond the clouds
With so much suffering and pain in the world how easy it is to forget that there is a light within our hearts that permeates through all things! We may become clouded, yet the light always shines if we search a little deeper. It never goes away. Sometimes all that is required is a shift in perception. This world we live in may be configured to pull us from a state of pure presence, but remember, we have a choice. In every moment we can remember that pain and sadness are an invitation to realign with the boundless, liberated beings that we truly are...

Learning from and Communicating with Animals


How does animal medicine work?
I am frequently overwhelmed by the shear beauty, perfection and awesome simplicity of animals. They were surely put here as our teachers revealing in us how our beingness can wonderfully manifest itself when not constrained through distorted thinking and perceived limitations. How is it that the 'right' animal, be it the real thing or just an image, can miraculously appears just at the right time when we need guidance most?...

Activating the Power of Higher Mind

How to manifest authentically
Consciousness and matter are the same thing: we shape and change matter from what we're being within. In some teachings though, we feel this ancient truth has been taken a step too far; trying to shape circumstances to manifest a new, apparently more desirable reality. There's simply no need to do this. Our higher selves, intune with the Divine Design are already shaping a far more miraculous, far more harmonious and far more loving reality than ego could ever dream of. And all we have to do is open to Higher Mind and bring that authentic dream into reality. So how does authentic creating from Higher Mind really work?...

The Well of Trust

How can we trust in all this confusion?
Recently on Openhandweb, there was a powerful question that pulled on the heart-strings:

    "How exactly can we align in the midst of this chaos? Most people I know are occupied with surviving in this system most of the day, including me. This system is very demanding, very distracting. I feel constantly bombarded by noise, by all kinds of sticky, dense, deenergizing or totally cutting off energies."

A moving question indeed! But this is exactly the path. It's exactly the way we will break down the matrix. Just by asking those questions in every moment, but also perhaps with a slight change of perspective...

Dare to be free. Free to be me.


How much is your life shaped by what you 'should' do?
How much does life's conditioning, expectation, sense of responsibility and obligation subtlely control what you end up doing? For most, even when we're awake, it's a good deal. I remember guiding a firewalk once and saying to the group, dare to feel it, dare to be you, dare to express yourself. At which point, one lady stripped off all her clothes and walked naked across the fire. For the whole group, it was a breath-taking, inspirational expression of total freedom…

A healthy relationship with Death

How often do you contemplate passing on?
Whether we appreciate it or not, we are all just one step away from death. In our culture, it seems to me that death has been so glamorised, fantasised and above all sanitised, that we've buried its true meaning under mountains of conditioning. It's either surrealised for Hollywood movies or pushed under the carpet of drug-induced, idealistic health-service longevity. It causes people to fear it, to deny or to ignore it. Paradoxically, such activity takes away the true meaning of life itself. It constrains and limits us. However, when we can constantly embrace the close proximity of death, without fearing it, I've discovered it's an incredible liberation. It sets us free to accept the moment fully, as it is, and to soar on the out-stretched wings of empowerment...
