Diwali - Laxmi blessings for good fortune

In India Diwali lasts for five days with the third day being devoted to Laxmi - the deity for good fortune.  Prayers, meditation,or even finding a quiet space to reflect and wish family, friends and all the very best for the future creates an atmosphere of positivity in a time of darkness.  Diwali is after all the festival of Light!

Equinox and moving on

Beautiful skies and nature to nuture us through all the Kali age upsets and help us to stay present.  Our donations to Kerala helped a few of the many and gave some respite to show they were not forgotten.  Lenic went personally to the village elder and distributed where it was most needed.
Thank you again those who helped.

Please donate to Kerala Flood appeals

Dear Yogis,

Please open your hearts to this awful situation in Kerala where we took students for retreat and met some wonderful, generous people who now need our help.
There are many Charities collecting and the Kerala government also has a relief fund.  Just do it!

July Blood Red Moon - Lunar Eclipse

Look up to the stars tonight and marvel at the wonder of nature.   In the South East at around 8 pm gmt we will see the Moon Blood Red with Mars just below as a shinning star..............if no clouds of course!   What a juxtaposition -  our peaceful moon is Red and the Planet of War is White. 

Nothing is as it seems and it is good to be prepared to change our views and see the other side sometimes.   That does not mean surrendering to the dark side; just a willingness to allow change to happen.

Butterfly count is on until the 12th August so do visit the to get a chart and record your sightings to help with conservation of these beautiful creatures.

Here are some recent sightings along the River Crane Sanctuary and more photos/videos of nature are on our Flickr Album so visit us there if you want to see more:

Only Truth is eternal

Dear Yogis,

Wise words from Krishnamurti which I pass on for your consideration..............................

"Without removing the causes of ignorance, there cannot be enlightenment; and to seek enlightenment when the mind is unenlightened is utterly empty, meaningless. Therefore, I must begin to see the false in my relationships with ideas, with people, with things. When the mind sees that which is false, then that which is true comes into being and then there is ecstasy, there is happiness."  Krishnamurti
