Newsletter - April 2022
Hello dear ones,
Spring has sprung and energies are changing not just in the vegetation but in the animal and human kingdom.
This lovely rising creative energy can, create more thoughts, desires and brain waves.
It is this mind stuff that makes us tired. There is nothing wrong with thoughts but stay in the light of the present out of the darkness of the past. Thoughts don’t exist in the present moment.
It’s wonderful to have lots of energy, but its even better to channel it, as we do in our practice.
Be still, give attention to what is here and now and your thinking will magically dissolve away.
Suggested Practice over the 2 week break – term starts again on w/c 25th April
