I’m not really in the creative flow today. We’re moving house. It’s hot and humid. And I simply can not. I reached a similar plateau in Vipassana way back. After 107 days of consecutive daily practice I missed two sittings which meant I missed out on the mystic 108. In the case of the meditation […]

Riffing on the importance of critical thinking at this time of cultural crisis, here’s a few words from the awesome and hilarious Steak-umm twitter account.

Energy flows where attention goes – surging forth to confirm our reality. Corona has appeared in parts of in India with no history of the […]
I wrote recently about the difference between news and narrative. In an effort to expand that idea I’ve been reading a lot of content about the various conspiracies that exist at this moment. For a while now I’ve had the feeling that things are not as they seem but I’ve found it challenging to articulate […]
Readers of this blog will know that I’m a fan of routine. It’s one of the ways I stay sane and make the most of each day. It’s more important than ever right now. As we approach the fourth week of potentially months of lockdown, routine is the thing that will get us through. The […]
