Cultivating Love in the Face of Terror

(0) Comments | Posted 12 January 2015 | (11:51)

I wrote a few thoughts recently that promoted the idea of issuing out love, rather than revenge or hate, in the face terror. It's a nice thought, but it leaves the reader hanging somewhat.

I started off the New Year with three flat tyres. One on my car, two on my daughter's pram. This seemed like more flat tires than any one person should have to deal with. But rather than rail against the Universe, and growl and moan to the skies, I had...

(0) Comments | Posted 30 December 2013 | (09:49)

Controlling Your Chaos - Start Stopping

(1) Comments | Posted 9 December 2013 | (11:27)

Sometimes chaos and manic woo woo is the most attractive thing in our lives. It is seemingly the driver that pushes us forward. We throw ourselves into turmoil for the sheer purpose of feeling something, experiencing something and, we hope, to make things change for the better.

Inspiration is a mythical beast isn't it! We can search for decades to find it, trolling our inner depths and taking on massive outward adventure. It can be as elusive as a once trodden upon grass snake. Then it hits. Right when you aren't looking for it. Right when you...
