12th January 2007
I’ve been reading a wonderful book by Deepak Chopra called ‘The Path To Love – Spiritual Strategies for Healing’. It’s not exactly a light read and rather challenging (in a helpful way) in places…but its message is hugely liberating and loving. I’m so glad a friend gave it to me when I saw it in her house and picked it up…she herself found it in a second-hand shop. It’s an American edition so it found its way here from the States. I could easily not have read it. I admire Deepak Chopra but somehow he seemed a bit ‘Hollywood’ to me. Now I understand why thousands of people know that he is a wonderful communicator for Spirit. That book was written with huge commitment, wisdom and love.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
The wonderful (and award-winning) Accent Press are publishing new editions of all my novels in 2007 which is hugely encouraging. Hope to get more info. onto the site about this soon.
‘Ordinary Miracles’ seemed to touch the hearts of many people who became ‘re-entry singles’ (what a strange yet accurate description) after many years of marriage. I had many lovely letters from readers about it so it’s great that it is ‘re-entering’ the book shops, along with the other books. ‘Ready Or Not?’ (Tivoli) and ‘The Truth Club’ (Tivoli) are currently available in Ireland. I grow very fond of the characters in all my novels. They seem like intimate friends and tell me such helpful and entertaining secrets.
Well it’s that time of the year again when we wonder what Jesus would have made of the modern day Christmas. But there are loads of examples of love and light around and adding to them really helps the festive frolics and cheer.
To tell the truth, I’m still getting used to this website thingy. Not sure whether to share my views on the meaning of life or to tell you I’ve eaten less chocolate this Christmas…though the chocolate I did eat was yummy. On a more serious note, dear Mother Earth really needs our gratitude and respect and assistance to heal from what us humans have done to her. We are custodians of this garden. Though I occasionally enjoy dancing in a circle singing ‘The Earth Is Our Mother’ some of the stuff we need to do is not exactly romantic and doesn’t involve flowing shawls and incense. For example, I need to get insulation put into my attic
and more insulation in my house in general to help prevent heat loss It is in a way the poetry of prose. E.M. Forster writes about linking the various aspects of human nature in his beautiful book ‘Howard’s End’…and about poetry and prose and much else besides. Novelist Zadie Smi’th loves his work and her book ‘On Beauty’ contains the lovely line: ‘Time is how you spend your love.’
In beauty may you walk.
