Hi… This blog started in 2012 from an idea that kept floating in from the back-end of my mind. At the time I wasn’t sure what would transpire, however the intention was, and still is, to simply share my journey of awakening (if I can be so bold to presume I’m waking up!) within the ordinariness of my life, with honesty and clarity. I’d like to invite you to share a little of yours too. 🙂
a little about me:
I live in Byron Bay, Australia where I reside in a little cabin at the back of 170 acres, with great landlords (just over the hill), some 40 head of cattle and in-numerous birdlife for company.
It’s a very quiet existence and I spend a lot of time at home. Why? I have no idea. I don’t remember planning my life like this, and yet I have always yearned for space, quiet and lots of free time. I’ve worked in the corporate world and had my own small businesses; travelled around the world, and after years of ‘alone time’ am now enjoying the truth and freedom of a loving conscious relationship.
It seems I’ve been given a lifetime of ‘time’ to ponder, wonder, inquire, create and explore myself through religion, new ageism, cults, spirituality, creativity, and in more recent years, non-duality and awareness teachings.
I live an ordinary life, with its normal ups and downs, and yet I have to acknowledge it is incredibly blessed. I have good health, good friends, a roof over my head, organic food on the table, clothes on my back, a reliable car, and am debt free.
I’ve discovered I need very little in life to be comfortable and happy, and yet again and again I feel the pull to know… ‘Who am I, without the ‘I’?’.
My name is Melinda. I look forward to sharing the journey.
ps.. oh yes, I’m also an artist and write another blog called art and awareness if that may be of interest to you.
