I am privileged to know this lady as not only is she one of my first clients, she is also someone I call friend.
She writes with passion and vision and with her agreement, I am posting this email to the site. Namaste dear Alison x
My physical healing continues. After you took me to the physio on Thursday, yesterday I went to see my wonderful Osteopath for a massage on my back. She is an English Buddhist and was telling me about her trip to India and Nepal last year to visit Holy Buddhist sites. And of the beliefs of Buddhists. I told her that my Thai neighbour was also Buddhist and on the Queen of Thailand’s birthday she always had a party to celebrate her birthday ( despite the political ramifications ) and to celebrate all our mothers.
The sun and sea have been amazing since the storms of last week. I thought the sun coming up yesterday was incredible, then the sunset filled the sky with pink light and this morning the sea is ablaze with the sun now the clouds have gone. To put this in context for 2012, here is my quote from Elif Shafak’s book ” The Forty Rules of Love” which I hope we can share with the universe.
” What rules Mom ? What are you talking about?
Ella approached the window and looked at the sky, which was an amazing indigo in all directions. It swirled with an invisible speed of its own , dissolving into nothingness and encountering therein infinite possibilities, like a whirling dervish.
It’s Rule Number Forty ” she said slowly.
” A life without love is of no account. Don’t ask yourself what kind of love you should seek, spiritual or material, divine or mundane, Eastern or Western …. Divisions only lead to more divisions. Love has no labels , no definitions. It is what it is, pure and simple.
” Love is the water of life. And a lover is a soul of fire!
” The Universe turns differently when fire loves water”
