a ny of you, like me, hold
the goddess Kuan Yin in the
highest e ste em. We’re not
alone – I noticed on a trip
to Vietnam that people there called her
simply ‘the Buddha’ a nd her image appears
everywhere in temples and small shrines.
I’m sure it’s a similar situation in other
parts of Asia a s well where she is the beloved
bodhisattva of compassion and mercy.
She’s my favourite Buddha too and I
have three or four of her statues around the
house, be stowing me and my family with her
love as we go about our daily lives. She is a
serene and comforting presenc e.
So I wa s delighted to receive out of the
blue an article written by a Sydney healer in
response to an earlier piece in NOVA back in
February 2009 (‘A Thousand Year Blessing’)
written by Buddhist priest Cate K odo Juno.
In it she told of her pilgrimage to 33 shrines
dedicated to Kuan Yin in the mountains of
Japa n, c a rrying prayers on behalf of others.
It’s a remarkable annual service that Cate
has performed for many years. Kerrie Kelly
wa s so moved by Cate’s pilgrimage that she
found her way to Japan this summer and has
shared her New Yea r’s D ay experienc e with
us in ‘Mountain Blessings’.
The Divine Feminine is a powerful
presence in this month’s issue in severa l
other stories – ‘Divinely Feminine’, which
calls on us to break away from the crippling
bind of stereotypes (gorgeous, sexy and Size
6 for one) and love ourselves the way we are,
‘Better Over Time’, which shows that peak
happiness in a partnership is at ab out the 40
year mark so hang in there, and ‘Change of
Heart’ which tells us they’re even finding
their feminine at the World Bank! It shows
awareness of the need for culture change in
the corporate world is beginning to resonate.
Perseverance is another of our key ideas
this month, both in ma rriage (I can speak
for the truth of that 40 year mark... nearly)
a nd in our health. Peter Dingle’s impressive
health feature this month ‘R ethinking
Diab etes’ a sks us to rec onsider everything
we are hearing about diabetes Type 2 and,
in the process, realise that we have the key
to our future health in our own hands. But
it doesn’t come easy and to ward off this
disease, now in truly frightening proportions
in our c ommunity, takes re al determination.
We can’t take short cuts, says Peter, and lapse
when it all gets too hard. It calls for a lifelong
commitment to good food a nd exercise, a
sobering lesson for us all!
To help us all along that path, our
Nutrition c olumn this month ask s a
pertinent question ‘Is R aw Food Healthy? ’.
It’s the time of year for refreshing salads and
fresh fruits, a l l brimming with life forc e if
we source them from farmers markets and
health food shops who pride themselve s on
the freshness of their produce. In our land
of bounty, we really don’t have any excuses
