• Are We in a Coma?

    The world is changing rapidly… and we must change also.  It is quite a dilemma for everyone to make a choice.  With so many causes to fight for in order to save planet Earth, where do we begin?  Without further ado, let us begin here and now with whatever little knowledge and common sense we still have.

    At times, I feel we are in a coma.  Completely oblivious to how we are abusing and using up planet Earth.  We take and throw, use and abuse without a second thought.  We have definitely become a ‘consumer’ society!

  • Sorrow Makes Us Bitter People

    As we experience sorrow, we feel justified in giving others sorrow. And even if we are not giving sorrow to the one who gave us sorrow we are still giving sorrow to others.

    Simply by the number of times we speak of that sorrow to others and wallow in it, we are giving sorrow to those around us who care for our welfare and only wish for our happiness.  They are affected because they have heard the story of sorrow, and their attachment to us makes that sorrow stick to them in some way.  Their vision and interaction with that other person will now change, because of us, maybe they had no personal issue with this person themselves, but now this virus has started to spread.  Is this not how conflict and wars begin given enough time and energy?

  • Beauty Does not Hate

    When it comes to measuring beauty, we all have mixed opinions about it.  What is black may be preferred by one, whilst what is white may be liked by another, and then there is the grey camp in between!  One thing I think we can agree upon is that there is beauty everywhere we look, anyone can find something to love and appreciate around and within them!

  • Making Mountains into Molehills

    Many people have the habit of making molehills into mountains.  They like to amplify things, giving them more weight than necessary and making them bigger than life.  But does this type of attitude and vision really serve us?

    How many times have we found ourselves fretting about small situations that don’t really matter that much at all?
