Down The Corridor - A Poem by M.N. Hopkins



Down the corridor

You may be in confusion

Find the doorway out

© 2017  M.N. Hopkins

Note:   This poem was written in the form of haiku and first published on my blog today,  the 16th of November 2017.   It was based on one line of an old inspirational writing.  "Down the corridor of confusion lies the doorway to your freedom".

When You Vibrate With The Pulse Of Nature - An Insight by Magnus Ericsson

På svenska.   In Swedish.

När du vibrerar på samma nivå som naturens inneboende puls så känner du dig lugn i sinnet och din kropp känns avslappnad.

Det är endast då som kroppens självläkande mekanismer kan göra sitt jobb till fullo, och då kommer din kropp, och ditt sinne, att börja läka sig själva.

One Can Reside InThe Air For So Long......A Quotation from M.N. Hopkins



One can reside in the air for so long, then one must land and plant one's feet on the Earth. The knowledge is from a heavenly source, yet is to be used in a human way, amongst humankind. There are many chosen, yet few will carry the torch to lite the way home. Come and be as one of us and reveal these truths to your fellow kind.  THAT ALL ARE OF GOD'S LIGHT, ALL A FRAGMENT OF A LARGER PLAN. ALL A PART OF THE WHOLE.

Life - A Journey Of Discovery - A Guest Post by Michael Brine


Life – A Journey of Discovery. 


“ The theme of the Grail story is the bringing of life into the wasteland ---- The wasteland is people out of authenticity living someone else’s life path ----- Upon entering the forest where it is the darkest there is no path ----- Those who can see and enter the Castle of the Grail are those with spiritual readiness.” Joseph Campbell.


Extract from a letter I recently wrote to a friend:


“Once we are consciously aware that life is a “Journey of Discovery” we will be drawn, from time to time in that Journey, to “teachers” or individuals we feel are more aware than we are and from whom we can learn and benefit by connecting with them. So, as I have seen in my life, as I have journeyed I have had the incredible benefit of several teachers who have pushed me on – and who, when I look back, knew when it was time to kick me out of the their nest lest I become too comfortable in it and by giving my power away to them would begin to stagnate. By kicking me out there has been a period of simply ‘travelling’ with the necessary opportunity of living what I had learned from that teacher. In other words putting it to the test by being out of the classroom.


Once learned then in time another would appear or to whom I would be drawn and again the help is given to inspire and motivate me to further the unfolding of this that we search for – only to begin to realize that we have always been ‘there’ and each teacher helped to remove another layer of the blindfolds! These are the True teachers for there is no thought of self-aggrandizement or glorification – Only a profound love and dedication to the Journey and all that It means.


Those “teachers” who attempt to hang on to students and attempt to draw others into their nest are not those whom I seek – nor I suspect do you.”

Discouragement And How To Overcome It




Discouragement - methods to overcome it

"Faced with some failures, you might feel discouraged to the point that you tell yourself, ‘I am incompetent, weak and stupid.’ Very well, you may well be all that, but it is dangerous for you to dwell on it. When you experience states of this kind, show that you still have a little intelligence and make efforts to think, ‘All right, I may not amount to much, but there is a world of rich, beautiful, and wise beings, and I am going to unite with them by means of thought in order to benefit from their qualities and virtues.’ I assure you that this will help you.

Also, try to recall all the wonderful moments of peace, light, and inspiration that you have already experienced, for you have experienced at least some. And since you have experienced them, they cannot be wiped out. Cling to those moments, and little by little, courage and faith will return to you."
