Why We Can’t Live in A Perfect World

We live in an imperfect world, but so many of us are trying to make it perfect. We live in, at the moment, a more unstable and chaotic world. Disorder is everywhere and as a result people are understandably trying to create order out of disorder. The moment we are born, we are born into chaos. We leave our mother’s womb, often screaming, because big change has happened. We have…

Are You Suffering From Lockdown Syndrome?

When I found out lockdown in the UK would potentially come to an end mid-July (providing a second wave doesn’t come), I was surprised by my reaction. I felt sad, I felt grief, I didn’t know why for a time. I felt angry, upset, hurt for some reason. I hear that there is a new term for this, lockdown syndrome.

How to Appreciate What You Have When Feeling Limited

We are living in unprecedented times, unprecedented being the keyword right now. This morning, Mothering Sunday in the UK when I write this post, I woke up with this unbelievable feeling of needing to ration what food I have, and it really made me consider and honour how much I do have.

I plan to write a post on self-isolation soon and what we can do to cope and manage this time, but understandably I also see an immense amount of fear.

Why The Greatest Threat To War Is Inner Peace

Hitler says that if you cannot create war then at least continue to propagate the idea that war is coming. Never leave people in peace, because when they are in peace, you are nobody. They don’t need you; your very purpose is not there. They need you when there is danger. ~ Osho So, we have entered 2020 and parts of the world are burning, World War 3 is in…

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. For example, the UK has just gone through a General Election. In 2016 we had a referendum on Brexit so that we could make the…
