And so tomorrow, in pursuit of a 30 year dream, I head to India. What the future holds, none of us know. But this trip has arisen out of my desire to live as full a life as I possibly can right NOW. A voice came to me in my meditation about 8 weeks ago and said “Go to India!” It was not a voice to argue with and so here I am, packed and ready to go. Everything has come together perfectly so I’m in no doubt this is the next adventure. Feeling remarkably fear free. I cannot wait to meet Mother India. She’s been calling me for a long time 💜🙏💜.

I know I’ve shared this quote before but it truly speaks to me. One week and I’m getting on a plane to India. For the immediate future I’ll be staying in a Nature Cure retreat just out of Chennai where I’ll be eating fresh raw food, mostly fruit, catching the sunshine, having treatments and resting. It’s my plan for much of that rest to occur in meditation and occasional silence.
I’ve been asked by many who is coming with me? The answer is no one. How can anyone accompany us on our journey inwards? The answer is they can’t. And the reality is that I find pure joy and the music of the universe in solitude and silence. Of course I love my social interactions. They too bring me joy. But I’m not afraid of being alone. There is so much to hear. After all, the same letters spell “silence” and “listen”. Do you enjoy solitude and silence? .

"God is not to be found in churches – churches are manufactured by man. God is to be found in nature.
You will find him in the stars, you will find him in the earth. When it rains for the first time and the beautiful fragrance arises out of the earth, you can find God there. You can find God in the eyes of a cow or in the giggling of a child. You can find God everywhere except the places that priests have invented. The churches, temples, mosques are empty, as empty as people are. The moment one is ready to accept life as it comes, with no conditions, suddenly God rushes toward one from every nook and corner."

Have you noticed that people, yes me included, get caught up in the notion of purpose? Asking what is my purpose? Why am I here? What am I meant to do? This comment really stood out for me in the documentary Yogic Paths. What it meant for me is that I have no purpose beyond being present to the here and now. And if I’m quiet enough, inspiration will come for me to take the next step. If I’m constantly striving to fulfil some purpose my mind creates for me, then I come from a place of ambition rather than inspiration. So I’ll just go sit quietly and just be and await the next inspiration, remembering that so much gets done without anyone actually having to DO anything. What are your thoughts on this? Do you struggle with this idea of purpose? Or do you feel that you have a clear purpose and are able to take continued inspired action? .

If there's one thing that I've learned through life, it's that real growth is usually preceded by pain. The pain caused by resistance or of failing to truly accept the present moment. I often reflect on a sprouting seed. Those last moments of being in the husk must be extraordinarily painful. The space seems to become tighter and more cramped. The only way out is through. And eventually, without anyone having to actually do anything, the moment of freedom arrives. The sprout breaks free the husk and is ready for life. To grow into its fullest potential, its divine purpose. It's so amazing to see, not just in these sunflower sprouts, but in the people around me and even myself. Can you recall a time in your life where pain was the opening to a great gift or period of growth? Where pain actually assisted you to flourish?

As I spend time just being, including 3 days in silence, I am struck by my body's ability to seek to restore balance to itself. Silence wasn't comfortable. I had to just take symptoms including extreme pain as they came because I couldn't talk to anyone about them. It helped me to dissociate from the disease label and just focus on each sensation as it arose and trust that my body knows what it's doing. It also meant I couldn't "do" anything to fix it. And of course the extreme discomfort has passed. It's amazing how deeply we identify with sensations, thoughts, emotions only to have them move on in a blink of an eye. Given the right conditions, our bodies just know what do. They do not want to harm us. I am in awe and I now honour my body more than ever. I bow to it and the force that created it. Namaste. .

Deep within our collective consciousness is the reason for mass murder. We are one. Ho'oponopono suggests that we look deeply within ourselves for the causes. All the spiritual teachers say that external change can only begin with internal transformation.
I love you.
Please forgive me.
Thank you. 💖🙏💖

Father Sun is putting on a great show today. It's really sad that we have become so afraid of the sun. After all it helps all our food to grow and provides us with good health. Vitamin D and so much more. Of course we need to approach being in the sun sensibly. But I haven't used sunscreen since I discovered I was allergic to the chemicals in it. I keep my skin well exfoliated through dry brushing and scrubs and moisturise with only coconut oil. I try to lie out in the sun before 10 and after 3, or 4 in the summer months. I know it has magnificent powers and gives life force. And I use this time to learn by reading or listening to audiobooks.

Would be very GRATEFUL if you can help me please. I'm starting a little gratitude project and would love it if you could answer the following questions in the comments or by private message if you want your answers kept private:
1. Do you have a regular gratitude practice?
2. How often do you practise gratitude?
3. What does your gratitude practice consist of? What do you do?
4. What benefits do you notice when you practise gratitude?
Thank you so much for your time. Please feel free to share with any grateful people you know. The more answers I get, the better I can serve this world.
Be happy. Be well. Just be.
Much love, Jane 😘💖 #gratitude #helpplease #behappy #bewell #justbe #essentiallybeing

Today's reading: choosing wholeness over goodness. "All of us have moments from the past when our emotional pain was too much for us to bear, so we repressed it within the darkness of our shadow. This is an unavoidable part of life. We can run, but we can't hide. Our shadow is always linked back to one traumatic event or a combination of painful moments. When we truly understand our shadow and its gifts, there are no fingers to point or blame to cast on our parents, our teachers, or our past, because our shadow is a delivery system for an extraordinary future. Understanding how our shadow was formed unlocks the door to enormous personal power and profound wisdom." Debbie Ford

As the last of the chemo related drugs leave my body - in come down today - my attention and intention turn to purification and cleansing. My body and mind have certainly been under enormous stress from the medications and deserve all the love and self care I can muster the energy for, including rest. This oil blend of citronella, rosemary, lavender, lemongrass, tea tree and myrtle is great for immunity, fatigue and for lifting the spirits. It makes a great perfume too. What can you do today to elevate your mood and vibration?
