A small street in the North of England, isn’t really where you’d expect to find a Tibetan Buddhist monk.
This week however, my good friend Geshe Lama Ahbay Tulku Rinpoche stopped by to deliver Medicine Buddha blessings & healing prayers. The meditation room came alive with the sound of Throat Chanting, bells, drums & Tibetan mantra.
This will be the 4th year Ahbay Rinpoche has visited my home, sharing his wisdom, love & compassion and infectious laughter.
Ahbay Rinpoche gives so much to everyone he meets as he travels the world and as anyone who ever met him will agree, ‘once met never forgotten.’
It’s amazing how the presence of one person can change the energy of the whole house just by filling it with loving energy. Such a beautiful experience.
“Act Your Age” they say. You’re over 50 and still acting like a teenager!
Do you feel, like turning 50 made you invisible? Overnight, people suddenly seem to speak louder & more slowly because you’re ‘old’.
The wolf whistles definitely stopped when I turned 50 but thats ok – I don’t keep my wisdom in my ass.
Wisdom of Experience & Wisdom of ageing, both the most precious gift a person can share or receive.
But don’t be fooled! Hitting the big 50 doesn’t mean holding back – or (in the words of the hilariously brilliant ( Sir Billy Connolly) ‘Become Beigeist’
On the contrary!! Listen up our stick thin, fresh air sandwich & skinny latte brigade! We middle agers were once just like you. Before the fat rolls & creaky joints that is, and one hair started sprouting from the chin with a life of its own.
Ageing can be far from fun thats for sure. But if you thought we had it tough – try seeing things from a canine perspective.
These days, when I get home from work, it’s on with the PJ’s and a good chill out on the sofa. That’s my relaxation buzz.
But just imagine, if each year of your life was the equivalent of 7.
According to a recent article by Almanac.com, that’s exactly the case with our pets. Research suggests, multiplying one year of your dog by 7, gives a pretty accurate idea of their real age. So it makes perfect sense, as our little fur babies get older, they too start to need extra care just like humans.
