How to Appreciate What You Have When Feeling Limited

We are living in unprecedented times, unprecedented being the keyword right now.

It’s Okay to Be Scared, But Blame Does Not Help

This morning I sat at my computer with a million thoughts on what is happening globally right now.

10 Powerful Reasons to Accept The ‘Other’

A lot is changing quickly in the world right now, especially in the West, but one thing is very clear – the more we dehumanise people who have different opinions or perspectives to us, the more we experience the exact thing we may not want.

How To Remain Calm In The Midst Of Chaos

Have you seen the state of the world right now? If you haven’t, you may have been living in a bubble, which is lovely, but not something we can stay in forever. One look at Twitter (for example), looking at trending topics, you can see how enraged many people are.

Embracing the Dark and Light in a Troubled World

Now you are presented with an opportunity to see life in all its dimensions, from the depths to the heights. They exist together, and when we come to know from experience that the dark and the difficult are needed as much as the light and easy, then we begin to have a very different perspective on the world.

World Conflict – Can We Have Freedom of Expression?

Many may say that the world is going to hell in a hand-basket right now and they could be right, but after talking about ‘Why Conflict Is Necessary’ in my last blog post, I had so much more I wanted to explore on how do we as humans have our freedom to express our thoughts, opinions and ideas when in a climate where there is so much heat around racism,…
