Be honest – who would not be adamant that reacting is a right in certain situations?
I certainly have reacted – and still do sometimes – in situations that don´t turn out like I want them to be, or when someone behaves in a way that is just simply disturbing to me, is unacceptable, or triggers a side in me that I still don´t like and need to work on. I have learned in the past that whenever I start saying to someone, “Because of you…,” I am out of order and in my usual blaming mode.

Could it be that rather than putting ourselves on the shelf as we get to a certain age, we have the amazing opportunity to serve and express ourselves more freely, released from the false worries about fitting in and what people will think about us?
No need for the resignation of, “I’ve got nothing to lose,” – but the choice to be inspired by the same feeling – unashamed and without shyness we can go for it, sharing our experience, wisdom and observations without reservation. Continue reading “On the Shelf or Embracing Life?”
I read a blog today by Terri-Anne Connors titled ‘Organised versus True Religion’ and was curious about how much we ‘organise,’ ‘manage,’ ‘fix’ so many things – including religion.
I know I have spent decades ‘organising,’ ‘managing’ and ‘fixing,’ yet despite this I find myself wondering if I have been going around and around in a circle (like a dog chasing its tail) in a bluster of activity, but not actually truly developing or evolving.
In looking at life, we could say that we fix, manage and organise our health, we fix organise and manage our relationships, our lives, our work, our finances, we fix and organise culture, behaviour, education and so on, and yet in the fixing, organising and managing, are we appeasing, putting sticking plaster over something or stirring the same pot, yet never getting to the root cause? And in the end, what actually changes? Or do we find ourselves fixing, managing or organising the same things over and over again? Continue reading “While we are Busy Organising, Managing and Fixing we Never Get to the Truth”
Walk along the beach one day and notice the footprints of those that walked before.
Some with deep heel strikes into the sand, others with toes gouging the sand as the person thrusts forward into the day. Each set of imprints can be felt and can tell its own story. Continue reading “Life’s Beachcomber”
Our bodies are talking the whole day to us; they tell us when to eat, what to eat, when to take a rest, when to go to bed, when to speak… but do we listen? Why do we ignore these messages? Continue reading “Whole Body Intelligence – Choices Between the Body & Mind”
Every moment is a choice. Every choice is a responsibility.
Let´s compute just for the fun of it, to get an idea how many choices we have made to arrive at this point in time, this very moment in our life right now. In my case this is Monday, 9 January, 2017 at 7.33pm.
As it is impossible for my brain to even start thinking about the time span of a moment, I will settle for seconds so let´s assume we make one choice every second. I am 50 years and 41 days old today. Continue reading “Adding Up”
