Evergreen Wisdom for Life

Marlane Ainsworth


Hi, and welcome to Evergreen Wisdom for Life. This is a place where you can read short articles that promote positive change and personal growth in your life. Each weekly post features a photo of Evergreen, the property nestled in the wetlands on the south coast of Western Australia that I call home.

I read a lot of modern and ancient books discussing topics like spirituality, conscious living, mindfulness, oneness, presence, and mind science. Amongst the pile of books on my desk at the moment are Your True Home by Thich Nhat Hanh, Music of the Mind by Darryl Reanney, Trusting the Gold by Tara Brach, Tao Te Ching by Lao Tzu, When Things Fall Apart by Pema Chödrön, Spiritual Science by Steve Taylor, The Untethered Soul by Michael Singer, All the Time in the World by Lisa Broderick, A New Earth by Eckhart Tolle, and Illuminations by Hildegard of Bingen, to name a few.

As I read, I find the essential message of each book and figure out how I can apply its wisdom to everyday life right here, right now, at Evergreen. Then I write about it. It’s like I’m writing to myself as a reminder of what these authors have imparted to me. And then I think others may find it helpful and applicable to their lives, so I share what I’ve written on this site.

At other times, ideas for my writing come from funny or strange life experiences, from the nature that surrounds me, or from things like films, music, poetry, and conversations. The world is full of pointers to a more meaningful life and more expansive perceptions – when we take notice.

I hope you feel a sense of inspiration, immediacy, and intimacy when you’re here.

Happy reading!

With love,
