The Dragon Whisperer’s Son

We cannot say when this dragon’s tale was first whispered from mouth to ear. Its scaly tail was lost long, long ago in a landscape now submerged under the dunes of the Sands of Time. We do divine, however, from the golden silks threaded through its weave, that it was spun in an age when…

I am so grateful to the generous-hearted friends, who shall remain nameless, that are buying the licence of this artwork, Dragon’s Eye, for the cover of my new book, The Dragon Whisperer’s Son – out, hopefully, by September. The image is so right for this book, because it is so packed full of all sorts…

Life on Earth – how to make sense of it

THERE IS A MEANING AND PURPOSE to our life here on Earth, no matter how challenging it can seem at times, and no matter how painful. It is, in reality, a quest, a pilgrimage, a journey in which we sometimes have to traverse difficult terrains because like the mythological hero, this is how we meet…

I Wanna Know What Love Is…

… sang Foreigner. Now that I’ve reached the Lover in my new book, which is based around classical psychological archetypes, I realise that I don’t know what love is.

Laws of Dharma: 10. Absence of anger (khroda)

There is a version of what we call ‘anger’ that is indispensable for our survival. We see it glinting like fire diamonds in the eyes of a mother in the wild who has just given birth. Even as she’s licking the afterbirth off her new cub’s fur, she looks up at you and you know…

The Laws of Dharma: 9. Truth (satya)

You might be wondering why law number 9 seems, at first glance, identical to law number 4, Honesty. But the satya kind of truth is a much wider and deeper subject than merely getting your thoughts, words and deeds lined up in a row. It is a quality that emanates palpably from those who have…
