Beauty Out Of The Buffer Of Time

Get your bliss notes

'Want to head out for some breakfast?' he suggests.

I smile and I obviously say yes, because - eggs! Enough said, really. I love me some eggs.

So we grab our phones and our wallets and we head out, pulling the locked door shut behind us. We walk through the security gates and out onto the footpath before he asks me another question. This time, it's, 'Do you have the keys?'


And so marked the fifth (ish) time that we'd locked ourselves out of our apartment.

We decide to shrug it off and head to breakfast anyway, and eventually make phone contact with the on-site managers of our apartment block, who confirm they'll be home in ninety minutes.

We eat our eggs and avo on toast.

He downs his soy flat white (his favourite).

I opt for a pineapple and orange juice; delightfully spiced with ginger, lemon and chilli.

And I raise an eyebrow at my day planner, which sits next to my fork.

I forgot to grab the keys, but not pen and paper. Telling.

And as he sits beside me, killing time by flicking through the newspaper, I decided to do something I haven't quite been able to do the last few months: write.

Write like this.

And then I get home and rather than simply type up my hand-written notes (a usual blogging ritual of mine), instead, I find myself opening up the camera on my desktop computer and simply reading.

Unedited. Rife with mistakes. Not completely coherent.

But after more than five years of blogging, I've decided that that's the way I like it.

Now's a good time for me to ask you:

What would you have yourself harvest in six months?

Thank you for being here. I'm grateful.

      Perfectly beautiful. It's exactly what I've been doing, pulling aways from people, and spending time with me and my thoughts. Thanks for reminding me that it's completely ok <3

      Welcome back! This is so beautiful and so raw, I love it. Thank you for sharing this, Tara, it's so amazing. I'm hoping to harvest more confidence and trust in myself, I'm getting there, but I'm only just sowing the seeds. Thank you for the reminder. <3 x

      Beautiful Tara. There's absolutely a divine and different energy in this style 'post' and I can see and hear the peacefulness and calm within you.
      I love that you hand wrote this, then read it aloud - profound and poetic.

      In six months, I would like to harvest my true uniqueness and value in the world.

      Oh Tara - I feel those depths and joys you speak of, for I too have been there this last six months. Thank you for sharing your rawness and not diluting it for the world. This is your beauty. Xxx

      Hello Darling. So happy to have you back with new posts. It is summer solstice for me, and the energy is very different. I too love the going inward of winter, but what I am experiencing now is an outward pouring of energy. So many fantastic opportunities come with the warm sun that I must remember to rest and not spread myself too thin. I am pondering your question of harvest in 6 months. It is a revelation for me to realize this is exactly what happened to me. I planted the seeds months ago in the cold darkness of winter, stayed on task, and now I am very close to harvest. It is a process, a cycle, a journey I am willing to embrace unconditionally.

      No words from me. This was just the most beautiful post. I missed you x

      Thank you for your raw yet beautiful words Tara!

      Your mention of yin energy really spoke to me. I have been in a state of yang recently (lots of pushing through and stimulation) and definitely need to find some more balance. The Universe and my body have made this super clear...in bed for the last week with digestive troubles.

      In the next 6 months I'm hoping to harvest balance, health, inspiration and joy!

      I just finished HIGH! I'm still amazed at how it is even possible to feel so connected to a person you never even met in the flesh... Your words are divine, comforting, inspiring,... I could go on like this for a while. Love you endlessly babe! Big hug X

      Welcome back Tara! When I saw you put up a new blog post I was over the moon excited! Your videos always hit home for me, thank you for sharing.

      Lovely! That is such a powerful question. Here we are watching things grow as we slowly approach real life harvest in September and October. I am also in the depths of my own projects that seem too big for me at times, but I'm still so grateful I planted the seeds. I will be harvesting my life's work at the same time the farmers do theirs. It seems fitting.

      Thank you for that metaphor because it's pulling me forward.

      Missed you, love you and can totally relate. To honoring xxx

      - And It is sooo good to have you back!!

      I finally got a chance to listen to this... Boy do you have a way with words.
      Can't wait to read more, and fill that little craving called Tara :)

    • 24 June 2015

      Yes, yes, yes. I can absolutely relate to every word you wrote/spoke. I commend your courage and authenticity, Tara. Yours is one of the very few blogs I delight in reading. It really fills me and guides me on my own journey. You are a beacon of light in the truest way - you are committed to unveiling your own inner light, through whatever means you are guided to - writing, yoga, teaching, relationships - and as a result, you serve others. I encourage you to continue to stay true to that guiding light, it will never lead you wrong. Sat Nam.
