    Fear Kills…. more than the virus itself!

  • Take Charge

    In a state of self-mastery we are HAPPY.  WE are in control.  WE, not THEM, are in charge of our life, as we CHOOSE our DESTINY with the QUALITY OF OUR THOUGHTS.  This is why we need to meditate and take quiet time to reflect and recharge our batteries of the soul.  ‘The System’ does not like happy people.  ‘The System’ likes complainers and criticisers, and discontented people because these people make good consumers!!

  • Have We Lost Our Mind?

    There are millions of people in China who ARE NOT AFFECTED by the virus. Why is that? There must be a reason? So why should I think, that it will come to me?

    What is the point of practicing a religion if that practice does not give us the strength to control our desires, ego and anger?  What is the point of all those prestigious degrees and name tags, if they do not give us good manners and the self-control to manage our own tongue and emotions? 

  • Simply Love

    Love is an elusive state of being that has enchanted, enraptured and tormented many a lover throughout time.  This single four-letter word has the power to conquer hearts and minds when shared, or break a heart or two when not given.

    Almost every heart is in search of it, and if we do not find it in the ‘significant other’ then our attention goes to our friendships, food, fashion, fads and fragrance as we look hard and fast to quench that thirst.  Why is that?  Because love is the essence of our being, because in fact we are love.
