Happy Mid Autumn Festival to all celebrating

Happy Mid-Autumn festival to all who are celebrating. Mid Autumn in the Chinese calendar is celebrated when the moon is at its fullest in the year.

This year post covid we finally got to see the beautiful gardens at gardens by the bay again. The lanterns were truly spectacular.

The huge scene is of Chang’e and Hou Yi i believe.

The colourful lanterns are lanna lanterns. They are Thai lanterns.

There are handpainted lanterns by volunteers.

The rabbit shaped lanterns are the chinese zodiac of this year which symbolise peace, longevity and prosperity

I truly hope you enjoy tonight. A whole year of working hard and now the harvest is here. A time for reunions and appreciating the eternal nature and beauty of the moon.

Sitting in meditation-aurora borealis

Hair braided in white,
Sitting in meditation.
Our soul is within
And in front of us
Our chi is collected
Shimmering in the colours
Of the aurora borealis
We disperse.

Incense in the morning

I am lighting sandalwood incense this morning. It very soothing and calm. I am grateful for it. It is good to meditate this morning. I hope you are all enjoying this cool autumn day and are well in all aspects of your being.

This year even though it is seventh month i cannot feel any ghosts, only light.
In my earlier years i could feel a haunted atmosphere and ghosts coming and going and portals to the underworld. All that has closed now.

According to heavenly law i cannot light incense or make offerings to the dead. This year i had completely forgotten it was seventh month till i walked in the park, on the way back i noticed some offerings and it jolted my memory. I can light incense to meditate though. It is strange to feel this much in the light now. The invisible barriers are there. What i am allowed to do and what i am not. I sit here thinking of dead relatives, wishing them well and being at peace. Its the least i can do.

Sitting in a replica of Van Gogh’s room

Sitting in a replica of Van Gogh’s room
I really didn’t want to leave. I could stay in his room forever.

Do all artists end up in the psychiatric hospital ? Thats what i really wondered.
I guess i am about to find out.

What i wanted to say to Van Gogh though, if i only had one chance to speak to him would have been this

‘Take your meds,
It doesn’t matter that your close friend didn’t like you or understand you.
Just paint and be happy.
Don’t cut off your ear.
God gave you two ears for a reason.
So that you could listen to the beauty of nature while you painted it.
It doesn’t matter that they don’t like you now.
People like us will come along much later and love you’ Ô©∑

Transcendence of the soul

Looking at the sublime-the transcendence of the soul into unified energy, from the broken, burnt branches of life that become ash. Very potent transition we all go through. Done in winter

Hope you are all well, the weather here is warm at the height of Spring. If its cold where you are, i hope you are having a restful time. I think the most potent periods of transition happen when we don’t notice them. But they are there for us, nature calls us to her and transforms us.

Energy moving upwards

A natural state of being, our energy floats partially above before we gather it. Light flowing upwards, light falling below. Created in Spring
