Beautiful words, especially for those of us patiently waiting for the obscure paths we walk that reveal themselves step by step, with a small but an encouraging light only, that illuminates the way. ♥🥰

MICHAEL’S MUSINGS: Far too many adults have lost their sense of wonder. People freely use the word awesome, but only seldom do they ever truly experience awe. To see wonder we need to look through the eyes of immediacy; most people look through yesterdays eyes. When you go into your garden to look at the flowers of today, most people see the flowers of yesterday. We have to be conscious in the moment to see through the eyes of the moment. Looking through the eyes of the subconscious everything is dimmed and diluted by the lack of us being conscious in the moment.
All Nature lives in the eternal moment . . . a place of wonder and awe. You think your way out of the moment simply because you cannot think your way into it. Think about this when you are not thinking!!! When I walk in my Forest Garden I do my best to be ‘with’ it, just ‘being’ in the moment with Nature, allowing Nature and life full access to me. In this way I experience wonder . . . and occasionally, awe.
It is the same with Love. Love is only to be found in the moment, and we only have ‘conscious’ access to Love. It is not available to the subconscious. This is why I always write CONSCIOUSLY . . . choose, live and be LOVE!

Ehm.. in the consiousness in the world around us, is there stillness? I mean another st. as we can 'create' for ourself (oneness)? Or is this c. for us/ our mind still? Is there a stillness within with we can reach something way beyond we discover .. in communication, awareness, whatever? Or a kind of way deeper oneness as 'before'? Don't know how to say ^^

I'm often stunned at the luscious fecundity in the garden.. things grow and produce and grow and produce, and it's exciting to be around it, amongst it... it's easy to be as a child in the garden, delighting constantly at life living and expressing.

Thank You

MICHAEL’S MUSINGS: Yesterday morning we three amigos worked in the Forest Garden. While I hoed out a certain species of grass that I wish to eliminate, the other two raked the paths. Gradually these paths emerged from the leaf litter looking all clean and bold, making statements of contrast to the rest of the wild and natural garden.
I reflected that our lives are a bit like the Forest Garden. We start off a bit wild and weedy, but with such a great potential, yet often within our development we get lost among the debris of life, losing the paths of our longing, of our deeper soul intent . . . so we just drift along in as safe a zone as we can create for ourselves. We tend to forget, or maybe never even knew, that safety and security hold hands with stagnation.
Just as we amigos raked the Forest paths, once again establishing the routes we can take and making the paths obvious for easier walking, so we often need to reestablish the deeper, more meaningful paths in our own lives. We need to reveal once again our earlier pre-birth intent, and clarify the directions needed to reach the destiny of the souls we are, rather than get lost in the superficial directions of wealth.
CONSCIOUSLY . . . choosing Love creates a clear path through the smothering undergrowth in the many overgrown forests of life.

MICHAEL'S MUSINGS: Okay, something completely different. I well remember when China issued its '1 child per family’ policy 35 years ago. I heard it and dismissed it. Reading the Epoch Times newspaper yesterday, I was interested to learn of the repercussions. It reminds me that every action has its reaction. Last year, the communist nation saw its marriage rates hit an all time low. Why, you might ask? Unlike the Western World, China frowns on children outside of wedlock. Interesting word, wedlock! It sort of suggests that it in China it is easy to get wedded, but then you get locked-in. Between 2013 and 2019 the number of Chinese citizens getting married fell from 23.8 million to 13.9 million, a 41percent drop. Why, you might ask? Naturally enough, the 1 child policy which was in place for 35 years has reached the point where there are fewer people to get married. The policy resulted in 400 million fewer babies being born! Also, there is now a strong tendency of Chinese women to ‘not’ get married.
Why, you might ask? China has rather patriarchal views of women in marriage. The male attitude is that it improves your wife to beat her. Of course, this is not all males, but it it is prevalent. A quarter of Chinese women are subjected to domestic violence. This actually means that every 7.4 seconds a wife is beaten by her husband in China. It is not unnatural therefore that many Chinese women are saying NO to marriage. They are going to university and seeking a professional career. Add to this the very expensive cost of living in China. The cost of living in the big cities is the most expensive in the Asian World. Under Chinese control, Hong Kong now qualifies as the most expensive city in the world.
It seems to me that for all its sabre rattling and declaration of preparing for war, the CCP has internal problems that it can no longer hide from the Western World. Problems that could well bring about its downfall.
Methinks that with a Loveless CCP, they might find that they are now completely out of touch with reality as the new higher energies reach our world. This is a time of compassion, of unity, of equality, not control at any cost. This is a time for world leaders to realise that Love and Compassion are the rising energies and they would be wise to align with them . . . or get out.
For you and I, as often as possible, CONSCIOUSLY . . . choose Love!

MICHAEL’S MUSINGS: As you probably know, I make quite a lot of half-minute videos, each with its own theme. They are on many social media platforms, Instagram, TikTok, FB, etc. Just a quick bite, as it were, with no long explanations. A recent one was, ‘We get what we deserve.’ This is the type you either get it, or you don’t . . . and that’s okay. One person wrote in the feedback, “What about the abused children?” Even when I speak these videos I realise that they are open to misinterpretation, and this is a perfectly understandable example. In the little picture of one lifetime only, and then death, the end, I agree, my comment does not make any sense.
But I always speak from the bigger picture: we are immortal and eternal souls. Each so-called lifetime is but one incarnation in the continuity of our lives, as the soul-self attempts to learn and grow from experience. In this frame of reality, what goes around, comes around. If, in one of your incarnations you abuse children — and historically this horrific practice has been common — then you will have an incarnation where you experience being abused as a child. This is not about right or wrong, or good or bad, it is about cause and effect. What we sow, we reap.
Equally, if we are genuinely kind and generous with people in our incarnations, so life will favour us with much good fortune and deep friendships.
It is always a good idea to choose Love. When this comes back to visit us, it is always beneficial. This is just one reason why I constantly urge you to CONSCIOUSLY . . . choose, live and be unconditional LOVE!
