• Veganism

    Paul McCartney famously said: ‘If slaughterhouses had glass walls, everyone would be vegetarian’. All animals suffer when they are being killed.Maybe it is now time to be more mindful and compassionate. To reconsider our food choices and reduce the suffering in the world. Compassion is a big part of being human. In fact, it defines our humanity. We also need to have courage to step out of the norm and demonstrate our personal convictions. Melanie also explained that if we are to live a life of integrity then integrity means doing the right thing even when no one is watching.

  • Happiness at Work

    The idea is to just BE HAPPY!  Not for any reason, except to just BE HAPPY! We seem to think we need to justify our happiness!  That is not the case.  If I am happy BECAUSE of anything, that is not true happiness and I need to take note!  If I am happy because I ate a chocolate cake, or got a new handbag, or went on a vacation, then all those things are fleeting and so the happiness will also be fleeting and temporary. 

  • What Vibes are You Putting Out?

    The soul has the faculties of the mind and intellect.  The soul thinks using the faculty of the mind and decides using the faculty of the intellect.  As we create thoughts – good or bad – we also create the atmosphere around us: atma-sphere (atma – soul). If we create thoughts of being afraid, or of being alone or of darkness, then we also create such a vibration and an atmosphere. It’s like becoming scared of our own shadow.

  • Love and Let Go

    We may be smart enough to fulfil all our worldly desires only to eventually realize that we are living in a trap of our own creation.  Learning to recognise what is real and what is false is the first step to a free, happy and fulfilling life.  Being the master of, and not a slave to our desires means we can be free to enjoy them, and free to let them go.  This is the ultimate self-love.

  • The New Space is Inner Space

    Every time you come into action, do so from that inner space.  It is a bit like having been to the well and coming away with a bucket full of peace! In this way you will find newness and satisfaction in every action, and energised rather than depleted. 

  • Is it Gold, or just Gold Plated?

    With meditation we are able to polish that vision, very much like having to clean our glasses every time we use them.  As that insight becomes clearer to us, we are able to discriminate between what is right and wrong and good and bad, and then take the better decision.  In this way, we make the right choices for ourselves,  choices that are a fit to our values, principles and conscience.  We need to have strong discernment, otherwise we can easily be fooled by life’s attractions.

  • A Season to Every Reason

    The reason why we need to remind ourselves that there is a reason to everything, is in order to maintain our joy and happiness.  If we get consumed by negative thinking, or the gloom and doom, there is no benefit and also we fall into a spiral of depression that may take a very long time to come out of.

  • The Power of Love – Feb 14th

    True love breaks all borders and boundaries. True love is not ‘what I can get out of’ a relationship, but what I share with another. True love remains ever-green, it doesn’t have expectations, it never runs out, and in its deepest spiritual sense it is our essence, our very core. To continue the words of the Beatles song: ‘Love Is Everything…’

  • Resist and it Persists

    So how do we know when to push for something, or when to give in to it and go with the flow?  When achieving our desired target becomes a big struggle and all energies appear to be against us, then we need to think twice.  When things are smooth and flowing and everyone is on board and offering their blessings to our project, when it ‘feels’ right and easy, then we can say that the energies are flowing and we are heading in the right direction.
