1. The Jigsaw of Eight Thousand Pieces: Soul reflections
The search for 'consciousness' is the search for a different kind of stimulus. It is one that dualistically nourishes the spirit mind through observation and imagination. We are a visiting party to our Higher Self until the spiritual connection becomes itself the most conscious and influential part of our human identity - until all of our decisive moments are at once inspired and intuitively guided by our wise and simple self. Our Higher Mind is activated through an integration of both logic and a looser arrangement of our perceptions, thoughts and feelings.
'Totality' is not marked by a sense of exaltation or satisfaction. It is more an acceptance of death and the ongoing presence of uncertainty, as well as an amalgamation of human pain and loss. Totality is found within eternal change, resting lightly between precision and speculation. There is no separation between what we are 'seeking' and what we already are. Though the search may be elaborate, the result is simple. Our spirit views this quest with detached eyes; it is only the ego-mind which places labels on the process and the end product. The search effectively consists of our human persona looking to locate all its 'pieces' in order to make sense of the whole. It fuels the inspiration to find meaning. Life as an unfolding process provides nothing other than the momentum for this journey and evolution.

2. Who saw Beauty cry, and failed to hold her left hand?: Meditations for women
In this book of original insights and reflections for women, inner wisdom, enlightenment and empowerment are the gifts we are prompted to discover as we each move along our worldly 'life path'. On that path we may find both mystery and silence as well as wild rides and dangerous games, since life itself is filled with uncertainty. Whether life presents us with experiences of deprivation and hardship - or those of a profound and energetic joy - we can continue to approach the world around us with curiosity and openness, recognising in addition the distinct and irreplaceable presence that we represent as female individuals.
Our balance and peace are redeemed by a liquid beauty that we can find within, given that the empathy of others or an external support is not always present or immediate. Even if we seemingly 'lose' parts of ourselves, they are never entirely forgotten. Sometimes we are less able to bring cohesion back into a state of chaos, or perhaps the complexities of the world around us have temporarily marred our personal vision, demeaned our focus, or dampened our bravery. All of this is transient; the spiritual nature remains untouched and will stay internally accessible to us. Our resilience and self-awareness are further enriched by continuous and exquisite effort.

3. The Little Tree of Wisdom: 365 Insights
Though each spiritual voyage is unique, the same road is essentially walked by all. Transcending the human condition is preceded by introspection and observation, as well as the willingness to make a constant and gradual contribution towards self-knowledge. The answers are intrinsic and the truth is often subtle, yet both are always in reach. Revelations will discover their certain and timely resonance inside every human being, precisely and without exception.
Some book quotes below, from The Little Tree of Wisdom by Dianne Cikusa:
- 'How many times have you walked to Heaven up the wrong stairs?'
- 'Beauty is having a leg; Joy is having a life.'
- 'Dreams -- open up the sky of consciousness.'
- 'Death allows you this day -- don't beat down the door.'
