HU The Most Beautiful Prayer:

HU is an ancient name for God. Singing HU has been practiced for thousands of years to achieve upliftment and to attain a higher spiritual awarness. It is in many hymns as "alleluia". It comes from the two words "Allah" and "HU" joined together which over time became alleluia or hallelujah. It can be sung inwardly or outwardly, in times of stress or during your daily meditation or contemplation. If you have ever chanted "Om", give chanting "HU" a try to see what you experience.

Below are two links, a recording of 100s of people chanting HU and a video about experiencing miracles.

Trees4Scotland:

Scotland is currently striving to be at the cutting edge of environmental sustainability and a large part of the climate change agenda involves reforesting as much of the country as possible – and this is where Trees4Scotland come in.

Trees4Scotland (T4S) are calling on clan support from all over the world to plant trees in their current project, Teaghlach Wood (meaning family or clan) which is located near the village of Comrie in Scotland’s central Highlands.

Trees4Scotland have made the legacy aspect even more meaningful by erecting on site honours boards displaying the names of the various individuals, clans and societies who have contributed to the woodland. Even if we all planted just one tree we would be able to make a massive different – and shape history.

Bed & Breakfast Links:

I can't recommend highly enough the hotel/reataurant/pub and two B&B's in Scotland, listed below. I was extremely pleased with the accommodations and their central locations. The owners at all three could not have been nicer. They treated me like family.

Fortrose (outside Inverness):
The Anderson, where I stayed during my latest visit, is a historic building in the quaint seaside village of Fortrose, on the Black Isle. Just outside the main entrance and across the road is the Fortrose Cathedral ruins. Also a short walk away is the beach and harbor. The food served in the restaurant is incredible and they have an every changing menu. Many dishes are made with ingredients fresh from their own home garden. Just outside of Inverness, it is convenient to it and many other attractions in the area.
