Sometimes life seems so easy, so
blissful, so perfect. And then we
start wondering why it can't always
be like this... ahh but that's the core
of the problem, isn't it. It all suddenly
becomes difficult again when we start
thinking about it!
There's a lot to be said for "being in the
Now". And long before Eckhart Tolle offered
this mantra to us thirsty Western souls, Indian
yogis and rishis of centuries past knew its
wisdom and lived their lives in the bliss of
I've often thought of what I enjoy most
as the editor of NOVA Magazine and it
always comes back to the same thing -- just
editing the articles and columns our writers
submit each month. It's my personal, deeply
therapeutic practice of mindfulness.
Take this afternoon for example. Gentle,
early winter sunlight is streaming though
my window, the haunting tenor voice of
blind Aboriginal singer Geoffrey Gurrumul
Yunupingu is wafting over me (and the rest
of the office because enjoyment needs to
be shared!) and I'm reading over Eric
Harrison's feature on what meditation is all
about. He tells me and now you that, ''When
the body is perfectly still, it feels luxurious
and alive" ... and the attainment of that
state comes with the practice of meditation.
Indeed it does, and just reading about it is
a deeply calming experience as well. I hope
it works for you, too.
A little earlier today it was the heady
combination of Helen Patrice and Deepak
Chopra's Soul of Healing Affirmations --
such wise insights and such a beautiful
voice. (We're talking Deepak here and this
time I was asked to turn the volume up).
Interestingly, Helen is another who finds
her true still self in crafting the words that
tumble out of her agile mind.
Thankfully, there's nothing conventional
about a NOVA office, either East or West.
I'm sure the wisdom we all imbibe from
our connections with so many others in the
holistic industry, our clients, visitors, readers
as well as writers, serves us all well. In these
times when there is so much anger and
conflict and general angst, just to be able to
share music, healing affirmations and soul
enriching ideas -- and the gentle energy they
all create -- is a great gift. Thank you to
those people who get in touch to tell us
they feel the same way.
More inspirational influences are
headed our way in the next few weeks with
Wayne Dyer, Caroline Myss, Sonia Choquette,
Brian Weiss and Gregg Braden visiting
both Sydney and Perth. It's a fabulous lineup
of impressive speakers who can't fail to help
us all make healing changes in our lives. So
grab the opportunity in August!
As Wayne Dyer would be the first to
attest, life is about making choices and we
really do have the power in our own hands
to create a life that enhances us, and thus
everyone around us, or we can choose
anger and agitation and make ourselves
miserable. Stress is all about how we
respond to life's inevitable challenges.
Now just hear for yourself that
mellifluous voice as Deepak Chopra offers
an affirmation that's perfect for this month
and these times: "In stillness, I find my
