Who Am I?
- First we are pure soul
- Then we are our thoughts
- Then we are our human bodies.
Not the other way around.
The question we should ask is ‘Where am I?’
In these three above….where am I?
Where am I in my life here on this earth? Am I living in my humanness, do I feel that I have no control, am I depressed, sad or angry? Or am I aware of things and know how to think positive thoughts, but my life is not going where I want it?
Be pure soul for a minute then you can observe the other two and you will be able to see with clarity that all is good in your world and as it should be. In this place you can create your world the way you want it.
The thing is, we are so glued into our humanness that we think it is difficult to be pure soul.
But it isn’t. It is the easiest thing in the world. The problem we need to overcome is to see that as our reality!
My first run of The Buffalo Thorn has Sold Out! Just ordered some more. I am so excited and also very moved by the comments and feedback I have received about this book. Its only still a baby and yet it is showing it’s strength and determination by pushing its way into the hearts of many. I am happy to see that this little book is doing exactly what I hoped it would. Its making people think!
Thanks so much to all those who have written to me and for all your generous and kind words!

Every moment is,
embrace it however you can, for whatever it is.
I have been joyful and I have been bitter.
And that is ok…
Every tear and every smile is from me to you.
As long as you feel that I love you,
I am living my life right.
The rest is really not up to me nor anyone else.
Life has many turns, obstacles and several destinations.
But with all of this, one life is enough and I will live it right,
because all I have to do…. is love you
Patti Pasqale Wilson
People will always have different opinions. That is what makes us unique. And how good is this! Can you imagine a world where every single person thought the same way about everything.
We all see things through different eyes. So why should one person think they should change the opinion of another? This is when arguments start, friendships are lost and wars begin.
This idea that our opinion is right and another is wrong, is the solid and unmovable foundation of hatred.
Difference of opinion. We all have it. The point is to embrace it. Why not honour the difference in another.
Let people have their opinion. Opinion is just an idea that someone has. It is not our responsibility, our right or our business to try to change the ideas of another. Discuss ideas for sure, but let ideas flow, let them be free and exchange them, share them and learn.
And then maybe we will have peace in the world!
SO excited! Got an email from my contact in Tanzania and Jafari is now in school. I hadn’t heard anything for a few days and finally Steve wrote this morning to say that he couldn’t get to the internet with all the preparations involving taking Jafari from his village where he lived pretty much on the street, and getting him enrolled into, and up to the school. But he is there now, so I am so happy. Finally after two years I have kept my promise. THANKS SO MUCH to everyone who has bought books so far!
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be?
Your playing small doesn’t serve the world. There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we’re liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others. Nelson Mandela
Ok, so due to proceeds from book and bracelet sales so far, Jafari’s fees have been paid and 500USD are in an account in Tanzania with a trusty guardian, for his clothes, books and other needs.
So now I need a new recipient. I need to put this question out into the ether…anyone know of any child who has a dream and needs a little help to make it come true? The trust fund is a little low just at this moment because of Jafari’s fees, but it won’t be long till it builds back up again. So I need to start looking…
Today my dad dug out an old yellowed dogeared piece of paper that I had given him when I was really young. I had written down a passage from an old poem.
I loved it back then…and I still do.
‘Your Was-ness doesn’t matter, if your Is-ness really am’.
Just finished paying Jafari’s school fees. Finally this little boy is going to have his dream come true. Feels so good to have helped that to happen for him. THANKS so much to all the people who bought bracelets from my site! There was enough money to pay for 2 x school terms at the Usambara Primary Boarding School. I will keep you all updated and informed of his progress, though african internet is sporadic at best and Steve has to find his way to internet so he can check his emails and write back to me. What we take for granted is the ultimate in luxury for the Usambarians!
Well, it was a fantastic night…and the book is LAUNCHED!!! And the next morning I woke up to the most wonderful news. Jafari is going to school. This is the email I received from the guide Steve:
“I took sum times to do so but know is ok, I rented a camera and bike to go to Jafaris village to take the pictures and see the attachment below.
looking foward to hearing from u soon.
So today, Jafari will be enrolled in the Usamabara Public School, which is a boarding school. He will receive 3 good meals a day, sleep in a good comfy bed and spend 2 and a half years learning english. He will then go to guide school for about 2 years. I am so excited for him.
