We can start by taking a deep breath in and living every moment in gratitude and love, they don’t cost money. We all have 24 hours in a day but there is no guarantee that we will live to see it through so let’s live every moment knowing that the next one might not come. Not by jumping off a cliff, you can if you want to but that would be in the step to ensuring that it is indeed our last moment, but by letting, the ones closest to us know how much we love them and appreciate them.
Lastly but most importantly to look into the mirror and tell ourselves how much we love ourselves, how thankful we are for the gift of life and the journey we have been on and make a promise to ourselves to live to our fullest forever more.
I am a pilgrim, the Earth be my floor, the heavens be my roof, I wrap the wind and the…
In my newsfeed, I discovered the mesmerizing beauty of Vantablack, a creation of Surrey NanoSystems. It is a substance so black that…
Which begs the question how much have we lost in our attempt to be relevant, and error-free? It always upsets my sensibilities when I discover a group of intelligent well-meaning individuals who take upon themselves to decide what the masses should or should not to be told. This sort of authoritarian dictatorship is exactly what has driven people away from the true teachings of Christ; truth, love, and acceptance. It breeds suspicion and is a fertile ground for conspiracy theories.
Everything has its place and being able to see that without judgment and the God complex to change it is sorely needed. The world is saturated with people who think they know the truth and the right way, whatever that means! Life is a journey and we are all pilgrims, none of our destinations are the same then why do we insist on putting up signposts and guides? What is needed is to celebrate our individual journeys, a campfire where we all convene for a while before we head off on our separate ways, where we can meet, wives and husbands, lovers and friends, brothers and sisters, to tell our stories and encourage each other.
The necrosis of one’s soul by pride lies in its ability to camouflage itself in the quest for truth, greatness, purpose, and knowledge. How should one be wary of the mutation of healthy self-respect into pride? Or be mindful of the subtle morphing of one’s confidence in one’s intellect into arrogance?
do I delve deep into where the universe beckons me? That dark and mysterious place where sense and senselessness dance the unholy dance of existence? After all we exist in that sliver of space between madness and sanity, a fact very familiar to all creative types.
Rabindranath Tagore had said, “Death is not extinguishing the light; it is only putting out the lamp because the dawn has come.”
This isn’t the first time the words, ‘they couldn’t see them’ has crossed my path. It leads me onto a deep inward journey as I ask myself, what am I unseeing?
In the dark when no one’s looking do they serenade to the moon? Do they wonder about the universe? Do they debate about their place in the cosmos of things? When a spider jumps is it trying to reach the moon?
why? Why question your beliefs, why seek the truth, why get to know yourself? Why is a very good question but what is better, is asking why not?
I have learned much about people and about how the mind works, especially the tricks it plays. What I discovered through self-introspection, scientists have studied and concluded; that humans are hard-wired to non-consciously shift their view of reality to avoid working harder.
find out what you don’t want to do. Sometimes being clear on what you don’t want can point you straight in the direction of where you need to go.
His talk got me thinking that we should have a curriculum in school where we are taught to get into the states of flow along with reading, writing, and arithmetic. Inducing the state of flow might just be what leads humans into the next stage of evolution which is a race of disease-free, happy, creative, peace-loving humans.
We need to break out of this industrial model of a production line, where everything is fashioned according to a working prototype. We are all unique and we all have a voice to contribute, like the planet Earth we are to come together the hot and the cold, the soft and the hard, the high and the low, the deep and the shallow, and create a masterpiece that is ever changing, ever evolving, ephemeral yet persistent.
