"The peace that we are looking for is not peace that crumbles as soon as there is difficulty or chaos. Whether we’re seeking inner peace or global peace or a combination of the two, the way to experience it is to build on the foundation of unconditional openness to all that arises. Peace isn’t an experience free of challenges, free of rough and smooth, it’s an experience that’s expansive enough to include all that arises without feeling threatened."
As some of you may have seen on the Charade Facebook page, on Friday my flat was broken into. Among the items stolen were my laptop, my back-up hard-drive, and my Nikon D40; in other words: my blogging kit! Hence the weekend silence.
Thousands of my photos, document after document of my creative writing, and stacks of blog-scheming are now gone forever. Whilst this is a sad loss, I'm looking to the positive of having somewhat of a 'fresh start' without being distracted or hampered by all the half-started articles I was drowning in.
Please excuse what will likely be a sporadic posting schedule over the next few weeks, and perhaps even a full-on blog hiatus whilst I plot my next steps, I'll keep you all informed!
