The Secret to Life
July 4, 2019

The scenery in Pembrokeshire takes my breath away. What is it that nourishes my soul as I gaze out across the ocean?

Today the view isn’t so clear. We’re in our campervan at St David’s in Wales and behind me a mist is breathing in and out.

Sometimes it creeps up to the window of the van and sometimes it retreats to the foot of the hillside.

We are snug, sipping coffee and trusting the forecast of sunshine that is promised later in the day.

Outside the big, scrawny crows are pecking up the apple peelings. I’d thrown them outside for the bright-eyed blackbird that I’d seen bobbing on the grass. But these scraggly crows, with their chisel-like beaks have frightened the smaller birds away and are now squabbling over who takes the treasured peel.

Stu and I are on a journey. Along with Buzz we are exploring Wales before hopping over to Ireland on the ferry.

We’ve been on an internal journey over the past few months and years; a wonderful, nourishing exploration that has seen our coaching simplify and our understanding of true self deepen. 

Last week we were on a retreat with Rupert Spira, he is a teacher of non-duality. Each morning we sat in a guided meditation for a couple of hours and then in the afternoon he would answer questions.

We loved the way he constantly pointed back to the ‘I’. The constant, never-changing sense of presence is the ‘I’  or ‘I am’ – it is the awareness within. This awareness, this presence within is the space of peace and love. If you have ever yearned for settled tranquillity, then you have been searching for the truth of who you are. 

Within us all is an Inner Compass pointing back to our true nature. You don’t need tools, techniques or strategies to reach it. Just notice your Inner Compass and listen to the stillness within. It is always drawing us back home.

Over the past few weeks I feel like we’ve shed an old skin and are emerging afresh, we’re inspired by the ‘Inner Compass’. 

We all have an Inner Compass, a calling inside us to return home to our true nature. The call is to once again remember who we truly are and to awaken to the deepest wisdom that resides in our soul.
