Ramblings about life . . .

What I share about my life is simply to help reinforce the understanding that it is possible to live with love and laughter, in between the tough times.

Life is what we make of it, no matter how harrowing. We accept and embody this with-in ourselves, thereby allowing the energy to manifest outwardly in our reality.

It starts with each one of us as an individual to form the collective consciousness.

Be the dream.

We honour the light and the life within you.

Please be aware - I upload other bloggers' posts and then delete after a month. This is my journey and others help me understand where I am, until they become irrelevant (a few posts excepted).

Nan Tien Temple, Australia

Nan Tien Temple - "Nan Tien Temple known as “Southern Paradise” is the largest Buddhist temple in the Southern Hemisphere. The temple focuses on the exchange of eastern and western cultures; the interchange of the traditional and the modern; and also the adaptation with the local communities."

We passed this Temple on our way down to Gerringong and thought we might like to stop and have a look around on our way back to Sydney, which we did.

We packed the car with everything to take back to Sydney, leaving our children, Ashlee and Traevis and Ashlee's partner Jake at the house in Gerringong where we'd spent Christmas. They would travel back to Sydney by train as there was no space in the car. They decided to spend one more night in Gerringong.

Jordan and Meghan had returned to Sydney a few days before.

We would all meet up in Rodd Point where we'd stay until after New Year, so we could watch the Sydney New Year fireworks.

The Temple was very busy as they had a festival celebration on. There was a band singing and playing and stall with all kinds of goodies for sale...and delicious food. Of course we were tempted by the smells and had something to eat.
