Day Three: Do You Realise That You Have The Most Beautiful Face?

Thursday, March 11th, 2010

So I have meet Ken Wilber, in fact I spent three hours with him. And what are my impressions? The man’s mind is a wonder; as each question was asked it was amazing to see how he was able to link things together, he could find patterns within patterns, and all the time he had a wonderful clarity about his speech, there were moments where I just let myself fall into the rhythm and texture of his words.

The End, The Beginning or Just a Jump into The Unknown

Tuesday, October 20th, 2009

As you read this last blog from Austin, I would like to invite you to notice your breathing. Wherever you are, notice how the breath enters and exits, notice when your breath turns from an in breath to an out breath. Allow yourself to deepen the breath – letting yourself just relax into the breath. Let the in breath fall as far inside as you are able, and when you let the breath go, allow it to travel out through the top of your head.

We are at a point in history when changes are taking place… But are we ready, have we the needed momentum, how are we going to support and maybe push the billions of beings on this planet to a great and deeper awareness of themselves?
