THE DIVINE GAME

By | Blog

Coming upon this Buddha head overgrown with leaves this morning in our garden .. there was an immediate sense of clarity and peace as I stared transfixed by the stone face peeping through the foliage ..  just like a child playing  “Hide and Seek” ..  This is actually who I am .. Awakeness in disguise as everything  .. ..

The image of the Buddha is a symbol for Awakeness .. the only thing there is  …  that chooses to forget its’ own nature by stepping into a dream body through which it can experience itself as the multiplicity of the universe .. This is merely an explanation which  pales in comparison to the actual experience of being in this dream world because it is so  utterly and amazingly  convincing …even to  Awakeness that seems to have created this wonderful game of forgetting who or what it is and then going to the ends of the Earth to find itself again … What a joke ! . .

Awakeness is peering at itself through these sleepy eyes   ..   each time opening a little longer  ..   to the blinding light of  complete and utter  al one ness ..

 

Terry Oldfield – Finding My Voice

By | Terry's Blog

Looking back from this moment when I am meandering along this path of acceptance, I see now that there have been a handful of pivotal experiences that were so powerful at the time that they set the tone for the long periods in between.

Up until the age of 12 I was a happy young boy, spending my time fishing and playing football with my friends – Generally living in the moment and enjoying life.

A Blessing in Disguise

By | Blog, Terry's Blog
Just before Christmas 2016, I faced the biggest challenge of my life so far..  I lost my right eye due to a rare form of melanoma … Soraya writes about this beautifully in her blog here.  I really  felt for a short time that I would not be able to come back from this and reached a moment of deepest despair. What I couldn’t see at the time was that this moment was to be a real Turning Point in my life …

SPIRAL – The music that launched Terry Oldfield’s career

By | Terry's Blog

This is the story behind the musical piece I called ‘Spiral’ that launched my career.

It was 1977 and I was rather disillusioned with life when I decided to rent a cottage near the remote Welsh village of Llanrhaedr Ym Mochnant to spend the winter recording a piece of music that had been pulling at my heart strings for some time. It was based on a chord sequence that had emerged from some work I had been doing with a friend on the I Ching.

The Magic of Acceptance – Pain

By | Mindfulness

About a year ago, I tore the meniscus in my left knee. For those of you who have had this injury, the pain can be unbearable. After months of healing, things were starting to improve until I squatted to pick up a paint can and I was in agony again.

My darling Soraya suggested my knee was trying to tell me something. I spent a day in the chair pondering and meditating on this. The answer came: Stop, be still and be present.

Doing this, I was able to reach a point where I am actually grateful for my knee for showing me and for Soraya for helping me surrender to the pain. It reminds me of this beautiful blog

Walking the Path of Music

By | Travel

Dear Friends – I have just returned from Bali – my first visit there since 1971 when I was a wandering traveller searching for something that seemed to be always just that little bit ahead – Bali was then a true paradise on Earth and I stayed with a family on Cuta beach in a little straw hut where I was embraced as one of the family. So much giving! So much love! Read More
