What a day.
A lazy Sunday with the wind howling outside, a nip in the air.
I spent it curled up in my lounge room, snuggled into my sofa with a glass of Brown Bros. Dolcetto & Syrah and The Rubais of Rumi ~ Insane with Love.
How beautiful is this eleventh century collection of rubais. The simple yet profound spiritual truths and visions contained in The Rubais of Rumi lead the way to the path of reconnection to the direct energies of God.
This stood out for me today:

I'm the luckiest girl in the world!
Why, I hear you ask.
Well my very, very talented brother-in-law Yen is about to release a new album, and he sent me a master so I could listen to it before its even launched!
I sit here this evening, transported by beautiful music which enlivens my senses as my soul soars higher, and higher.
dreaming from the earth is his second albumand explores our relationship to the earth & the challenges we currently face as a collective. The work also explores the opportunities available to us at this time.
Woven in to his pieces are the vibrations to facilitate our alignment with our self/Self & our own divinity.
Check him out at http://www.yenwynddancer.com/ there are even samples of the tracks on his site.
I stood at my back door at midnight. The haunting calls of the waterfowl echoed up from the lake. A gentle breeze caressed my face and I looked up into the indigo sky. Then I noticed, my tree is starting to bud. Tiny leaves were fluttering in the breeze. I took a blanket and a pillow and I layed underneath a canaopy of limbs and buds and communed with midnight.

You Are Sunrise
You enjoy living a slow, fulfilling life. You enjoy living every moment, no matter how ordinary.
You are a person of reflection and meditation. You start and end every day by looking inward.
Caring and giving, you enjoy making people happy. You're often cooking for friends or buying them gifts.
All in all, you know how to love life for what it is - not for how it should be.

This week's Rainbow Dreams poses another tough question.
At this stage of my life, I continue to confront more and more subtle growth opportunities and challenges.
The Womb of Potential Card reminds me that this stage of life heralds a deep and abiding inner freedom.
The Rainbow Goddess carries the potential to manifest in all spheres and in all circumstances, and invites me into the Womb of Potential where, like the Rainbow Goddess, I gestate my dreams.
Hidden treasures within me are waiting to blossom, they are blossoming!
I open my heart and soul to the many opportunities that surround me each day. Through my work with Gayla I see the wheel of fate is shifting and new values, concepts, and ideas are forming within.
I am pulling down the wall around my heart and I'm letting others in. I have learnt not to react immediately when faced with a confronting situation ... I am sitting back and observing first before giving a measured response.
I'm finding others are drawn to me, and I to them. I don't need their approval - its how I feel about me that counts.

I've been pondering last week's Rainbow Dreams question all week. Yes, I may post these challenges, but I find them as confronting and challenging as everyone else.

There is always something to discover in every moment I give myself permission to be completely present.
This practice of awareness, discovery, integration and the release of judgment is the journey that leads to the mastery of my own life purpose.
There is always something to discover and that in itself is one of the many gifts of life that is so often overlooked.
It is all just one big amazing mystery unfolding.
Our task is to be present enough to experience it!
I breathe in calm and clarity. Close my eyes. And with each breath in choose a greater level of calm. With each breath out choose to release anything that might limit me from being completely in the present moment.
I imagine that I can see, hear, feel and/know myself as I am meant to be, and ask myself the question "Who am I" and write down my answers as they come.
warm and funny, with a wicked sense of humour
a woman of great strength and compassion
committed to my continual development
comfortable in my own company
a talented writer and 'teacher'
passionate about my beliefs
inspiring and empowering
a social butterfly

Well I survived Sydney and the madness of APEC, to come home to find that my ISP switched me to a new service.
No biggy I thought ... I thought wrong.
Nothing was supposed to change. I was supposed to be able to log on as normal. Didn't happen.
So I called them, and they said ... 'oh yeah, we need to send you a filter ... we'll send it out immediately'.
Three days later it arrived. I was so excited, I'd missed you all so! So I installed the new filter, turned my laptop on, and nothing. Nada!
So I call my ISP, and they tell me its my modem/routers fault and its not their problem (grumble ... I didn't ask to get changed to the new service). Anyway I call the company that made my router. Yep - no customer service on the weekend.
But I got through this evening - Yay! And I'm back, so watch this space ...

I'm in Sydney this week -- one of the world's most beautiful cities. Even more amazing, I'm staying in an apartment right on the harbour's edge, with beautiful views.
But even as I write this entry, Sydney is going into lock down.
The threat of violence during the APEC summit has made strict security measures necessary.
With the exception of war, security arrangements for the APEC conference are the biggest ever mounted in Australia.
Activists claim Sydney is being turned into a fortress.
Steel and concrete barriers have been erected around the city. For the past two days I've been walking through them into a different world. But then again, Sydney is a different world this week.
Its a little unnerving, but at the same time, I do feel safer.
There are 3,500 police on the beat. Sitting in the media centre today I saw a troop of officers walk past. I don't think I've ever quite seen anything of this magnitude before.
I haven't seen any prostesters, but my cab driver this morning told me they are around. All I've seen are throngs of tourists, enjoying the emerald city's early spring sunshine.
I went out to dinner this evening on the King Street Wharf where a festive atmosphere prevailed. We ate seafood, drank wine and enjoyed the vibe.
What a city of contrasts Sydney is at the moment.
