Hi... This blog is an idea I've had for awhile, and for whatever reason, today is the day I'm watching myself start at the 'Beginning'. I'm not sure what will transpire here, however the intention is simply to share my journey of awakening (if I can be so bold to presume I'm waking up!) with honesty and clarity, and perhaps you might like to share a little of yours in response.
a little about me:
I live in Byron Bay,
Australia where I reside in a little cabin at the back of 170 acres,
landlords (just over the hill) and some 40 head of cattle 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, been
married for a nano second, and am still out to lunch on the relationship
status. I suppose my primary relationship is with moir. Parenthood didn't occur, so 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-dualism 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. M x
