Hearts full of love…

Today has been a lovely day, a special day… A day filled with joy and love and connection.

All days have this within their essence…

Each day we live has the potential to be a special day, a day filled with love, connection and joy.

The key is that we stay at all times connected to ourselves… That we remain present in every moment to this moment, and to the centre of our being. When we do this we are present to others… If we are not present to ourselves then of course the effort to stay engaged and connected with another is hard, and will undoubtedly break…

How could it not? We are one, we are all united and in the mirror we will find the cracks in the connection to ourselves, as well as the bursting heart felt love and joy.

Like everything it is a practise, to gently reconnect to ourselves… Whenever we attempt to distract, to run from ourselves – to run from anything that feels difficult or distressing or uncomfortable, the key is to notice this… To watch when we reel away from the pain… And to know that the route to the deepest connection with self and others is to stay and ‘face the music’, feel the pain… The anxiety, the anger, the hatred, all emotions however deep, or base they may be… and bit by bit heal the wounds from our past, clear the pain from our being…

The delight of clearing the blocks is to discover that there is no limit to the joy, the bliss… The connection never falters and extends beyond anything we might know, or have imagined… When we are fully centred in self, then there is no separation from another, any other… We are always in touch, in love, in joy with one another…

And this can be felt, and experienced from the inside out…

Because being connected doesn’t mean we must be talking constantly, touching constantly, or even in the same room or country… It is about a steady force of love within us – a place of self love – that cannot but help to spill out to everyone; and be felt always, all over the world…

Today I experienced a joyous physical re connecting with my wonderful sister in law Haze… I drove down from London in time to run about on the beautiful South Downs… Up up up the steep grassy green hill from the ‘Bede’s cafe’, bright shining blades of grass, lustrous, cool, damp, dry dusty in parts… My body unfurled from its long drive and I had to curb an urge to run further than in truth, I had the space and time for!

The downs remain still number one on my list of ‘beautiful places to run in the world…’

After my run, I enjoyed a wonderful long lunch with Haze… Before a very exciting meeting with Anne Flude…

Anne connected with me on Facebook because she enjoyed my blogs… She started to share many of them – as well as my vlogs – and our ongoing on line dialogue deepened…

I asked if she would like to make a vlog together… And this is it!

It was such a delight to meet her…. And you will see from the vlog her fabulous energy and spirit. Camera person Haze and I loved our time with her, and we both came away enriched…


I finished my flying visit by enjoying a cappuccino in Prezzo with Edwin, a special friend… It was a fun fitting finale to my special day! Once the last drop was gone from our coffee cups, we walked through Eastbourne together; the shops shutting up, the streets empty and quiet, to find my car…

I dropped him off and then drove back to London on a glorious summer evening,  against a backdrop of sweeping English countryside and dramatic skies streaked with yellow evening sun; my heart full…
