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.

Cheers Mx

ps.. oh yes, I’m also an artist and write another blog called art and awareness if that may be of interest to you.

      1. thanks Kale… love the clean look of your blog too. Enjoyed reading your recent post about your 8 year old son. I also read your ‘About’ page and it seems you have a wealth of wisdom on blogging. What a gift. Mx
