Philosophical Wax

Days of Om and music

singing bowls and didgeridoos

and a little rain

 The dance

I love sunrise tai chi when we don’t have rain! During the year the sun appears to move along the eastern horizon  all the way over to Mt. Tolmie in Saanich and back again to the Esquimalt hills.

Mother earth not only spins day into night  but tilts and sways to and fro as she moves in her wonderful  elliptical ballet through solar winds and the curve of space. She dances to a music whose frequency our ears are not yet attuned.   I wonder if angels hear the sound of her whirling passage as a loud swoosh or a vibrating hum.

Om mane padme hum.


Two gifs I put together awhile back from photo frames. I still use an old program instead of Photoshop but will get the hang of photoshop animations soon I hope.

  1. I do Qi Gong exercises most mornings before breakfast. It helps focus my mind and creates a sense of inner balance. On the days I don’t start off with this, I feel more stressed.


    1. Exactly!! It just puts you in the right frame of mind for the day and makes it easier to stop and breathe when stress or worry ambush you. Thanks for reading Sarah!

    What a gorgeous website you have here! I cant wait to read more!
    I love so much your words about the sun – I too have watched this same tilting as the sun arrives on the horizon at increasing/decreasing degrees of easterly, as we built our house in South Carolina to face the Ka’ba of Mekka, and we prayed the dawn prayer usually with our door open to the sun room, so we were usually watching the sunrise over the woods and lake in front of our house, practically every morning. It was really peaceful there, and I loved seeing and thinking about the variation in location of the sun’s position as she arrived on our horizon!

    I believe your philosophical wax is made from honeycomb! ♥♥♥ ;^)


    1. I’m so glad you dropped by and introduced yourself. Welcome anytime!! I love your blog too! How beautiful-to build your house facing east toward Mecca. Such a spiritual gesture! Thank you for your so kind comments!

  4. Hummingbirds are so lovely 🙂 I’ve never tried Tai Chi but it sounds like it would be right up my alley. Glad you had a wonderful moment like this!


    1. Thanks Caitlin. I think you would like it too or Qi Qong!

    I never tried Tai Chi.. But, in days gone by, yoga. The only problem I have with much yoga practice, is that it has become very ‘competitive’, and not and exploration into yourself. As per my understanding, Tai Chi still retains that original purity


    1. Yes, I do some yoga too. I know what you are saying though!!


Come on , don't be afraid to squeak up!
