• Imagine… Is One Life Enough?

    Indeed, we become aware that we are the sum result of everything that has happened to us in our lifetime.  We cannot just live in this life, assuming we are not responsible; that we do not know about the causes, or cures for what is happening in our life.

  • Humility – An Expression of Self Respect

    We forget that humility is one of the latent virtues and powers of the soul.  There is no loss in humility, there can only be gain; actually it is a state of power within the soul.  Humility can only come from a steady and stable place of self-respect, inner soul respect really, which is based on a true knowledge and experience of the self, not as the body, but as a pure consciousness.  That is who we all are in our essence, now is the time for us to live from that place of awareness of being pure consciousness.

  • Bhavna…  Pure Feelings from the Heart

    Bhavna transcends the limitations of the material world because we make a heart to heart connection. Now is the time to come back into our natural state of bhavna, and to live from the heart with simplicity and love.  Maybe this is why those ancient lands carry a vibration that attracts us to them, because the energy of bhavna is still present there in those countries, in such a way that the energy vibrations feel transcendent.

  • Do’s and Don’ts of Great Relationships

  • In Celebration of Yoga

    I would like to reflect upon how often yoga and meditation have principles in common. In Sanskrit the meaning of yoga means to ‘unite’ or to ‘connect’.  Physical yoga, tends to deal with exercises that stretch and strengthen the body, and meditation focuses more on the spiritual aspects of life.  For each modality to be successful, we have to learn how to control the mind so that we can connect to our higher selves.

  • Choose Your New Normal

    Today, we all have a new canvas on which to draw and create our new ‘normal’.  Let us take our time and breathe deeply as we pick up the brushes and start to paint!  Are we happy in our ‘brave new world’?  If not, it is not too late to change things.

  • Just ‘Be’ Content

    Contentment on the other hand is a state free from desires.  An understanding that one needs the simple things in life to survive; one has trust in the process, and is liberated and not bound by people and possessions.  It is a state of being totally satisfied.  Serene and calm and peaceful.

  • Why Should We Have Good Manners?

    What has happened to the art of social grace and etiquette?  Maybe it is time for the return of some of those social graces to make a comeback… that is before any more of our good manners are lost in the name of convenience and speed. 

  • Creating a New Meme of Love

    ‘Memes’ are subtle, they are transmitted as thoughts, ideas and beliefs which quietly slip into our daily living and culture, almost imperceptibly such that we now accept them as a ‘normal’ part of our life.  We have to check the nature of these ‘memes’, and see are they really good for us?  For example what is ‘normal’ about being afraid to hug our children, grandchildren and grandparents, or a friend?  For how long are we going to be afraid of a handshake, a kiss or patting someone on the back?  Is this how we want to live our life in the future?  We must resist this culture of fear.  So, it is time to wake up, because a future full of fear will not be a happy future to live in.
