A more subtle beauty

It's not just parakeets that visit my small garden, there are less exotic visitors too. While I was in my garden yesterday a male house sparrow paid a visit. He sat on a washing line post in my next door neighbour's garden long enough for me to get some pictures. This sparrow may not have the bright plumage of the parakeets, but I have always loved their markings. A more subtle colour scheme but beautiful none the less.
The Inner Battle

The Inner Battle

The inner battle Will the battle ever be over my Lord? There is so much depth in each human being, that only you can see, and understand.   There are days when I seem bombarded, first anger, then lust, impatience, and fatigue, yet I know that you are with me in all of this.   It is simply being human, and I must walk this path, that is what we humans do, struggle to keep balance, trust, to look at you and not at ourselves and to grow in the knowledge that all we can give you is our p

Cats: solar power and a shady character

As I have noted before I have a very small garden. That doesn’t stop it being the favourite sleeping place of two of my cats (Elsa is much more of a wanderer). To the uninitiated observer it may appear that my cats simply lie in the garden doing nothing all day, but that is not entirely true. As the sun moves across the sky Scamp and Nyana also move across the garden. However they don’t move in the same direction. Nyana loves to lie in the sun, soaking up the rays. It’s almost as
We wrap each other in chains

We wrap each other in chains

We wrap each other in chains   To judge another can be a heavy-weight, the pain it causes is often not felt as suffering, yet to judge means to belittle the one judged, or to carry resentment and anger because they are different. Or again by holding one to wrongs done to us, we deepen the wound, giving power to those who hurt us. We wrap each other in chains from our lack of understanding of the burdens, we put upon others, just as those who hurt us may not know or understand what

We Choose

We Choose

We choose   It is no small thing to live in hope, to love when tired, to be patient in stress, to pray when feeling empty, to have faith when life seems absurd, or suffering deepens. To trust when fear is present, to say 'Yes' to it all. We choose, the deeper we dig, the more we seek to walk the straight path the freer we are, even when we fail, we simply get up and continue--Br.MD

The Sacred Moment

The Sacred Moment There is no moment that is better than any other when it comes to the reality of God's place in it all. Each event asks of us a response, that is either rooted in love, or in our desire to control, or to place ourselves above others. In the sacred moment we or face to face with the infinite. God's 'Yes". Joy is found there, not just happiness, which comes and goes, but joy comes from a place that can only flow from God's heart. To be present to 'this' moment is perhaps

Even our enemies

Even our enemies

Even to our enemies   In prayer, as our relationship with God deepens and trust grows as well, fear is let go of and we become living icons of God in the world. We become channels of his love towards all without exception, even to our enemies; our hearts expand in order to be able to truly experience and understand this reality. The fire of the Holy Spirit purifies us and as we grow in self-knowledge, so does our openness, our availability to be used by God in our lives. It is grace, this expa

A beautiful moment 55 years ago in Panama

A beautiful moment 55 years ago in Panama

A beautiful moment 55 years ago in Panama I am often amazed how certain experiences will stay with me.   I know that most of my life is consigned to my unconscious and stays there forever.  Then some experiences stay with me for some reason.   This is one of those seemingly very simple ordinary events that was imprinted into my soul.  We moved into Gulick Heights in December 1958.  I liked it there and what I loved most was that it was surrounded by jungle.  Not wild jungle, but there we

Those Who Have A Problem With Many Others

Many people are easy to get along with.  Then their are others who struggle in this area. Some individuals who I know are basically good, nice people.  But at the same time, they don't get along with so many others and have a problem with just about everyone.  And they like to complain about others a lot too. So with that said, here's my question: if they have a problem with so many people and don't get along with most others, don't they realize that maybe they are the ones with the pr

Parakeet Peekaboo

My next door neighbours have a hole in the eaves of their house. For a while I have suspected that the pair of parakeets that I regularly see in a nearby tree are living in this hole. I now know for certain.   Peekaboo!

The love of family and friends

The love of family and friends

The love of family and friends   Br. Philip gave the chapter talk this morning after mass. He is our sub-prior or 'third superior'. His talk this morning was not written down, but he talked from the heart.   At this time his family is going through a rough time. His father has stage 4 lung cancer. It is hard on Philip because he can't be with his father at this time because of the lockdown. The sad situation I am sure is being lived out by thousands nationwide at this time.   His family i

More views from a small garden

As the sun began to set the robin returned. Flying from tree to tree he sang until it was dark .     Initially the parakeets seemed to have fallen in with human society and had taken up social distancing.     As the sun began to set, however, they once again paired up.     Nearby a magpie’s white breast reflected the red rays of the setting sun.   All too soon it was no longer light enough to photograph the wildlife.

Views from a small garden

I have a tiny garden in a housing estate in the suburbs of London. That doesn’t mean there is nothing to see. This afternoon the song of a blackbird attracted my attention, so I headed out into my garden with my camera. The blackbird was in a tree across the road from me. As he sang his heart out I took pictures.     As I took pictures of the blackbird I became aware that he wasn’t alone. My old friends the parakeets were back. They were preening each other, f

What plants teach me

What plants teach me

What plants teach me   I am not much for forest, or lots of scenery, but find rest in the plants that I have in my room. Simple plants, easy to take care of, but to me so beautiful, rooted in the moment, seemingly always at rest.   Some plants I have had for many years, they just grow, get deeper roots, and I change the water from time to time, and fee . I believe my soul is a little like that always at rest, watching, my roots growing deeper with each passing day, and God's grace waterin

How I'm Coping With The Virus

How are you coping during the coronavirus pandemic?  I'm coping pretty well with it. One reason that I'm coping well with the virus is because I'm not watching the news about it on the TV a great deal.  I'm watching the news some so I can be informed about the virus.  And I think that's smart. However, I'm not watching the news a great deal, as I don't want to get all worried and panicked about the virus because of it.  For me, their's a happy medium.

Teens Can Be The Hardest To Get Through To

Teenagers aren't adults yet.  They have a lot to learn about life.  And many of them think that they already know everything (although I don't believe all of them think that). As probably any therapist will tell you, teenagers are the hardest to get through to, in general. But despite that, lots of them can be helped.  Many teens will listen to helpful advice given by adults, including teens who are battling mental illness.  Lots of them can be reasoned with.  Not all of them are super
