Relationships change over time and sometimes they get one sided. One party listens the other moans complains and vents. It’s not fun and it’s not friendship. Here’s the video on venting.
Toxic people are really a myth we use for not taking responsibility for our own choices. We don’t really get that far in the discussion, but we do touch on the idea of the universe keeps giving you the same message till you choose to learn from it.
So here we are , this is a post I did with my colleague and friend Danni. Basically she asks the questions and I give the answers. There will be a video post every Monday. 🙂 Enjoy.
A while back when the pandemic started, I decided to make some videos as a sort of video diary. I thought it would be interesting to look back on and realised that people on my social media wall were actually interested in what I had to say. Well their feedback helped me crack the circular thinking about having a video channel. I eventually downloaded a few videos I had posted and uploaded them onto YouTube. Here is the link . Read More
In order to move out of negative thinking, something is required. That thing must be what negative thinking isn’t. It can either be positive thinking or just simply not thinking. Focusing on the breath and the body aka meditation is a wonderful way of moving out of our circular thinking and calming down the mind. Another way is to act. Any action no matter how great or small, geared towards progress is more beneficial than no action at all. Here Read More
It’s a long time since I have written here. We have had a lockdown in the meantime that seems to have put the world in a spin. Indeed the world of last March is perhaps slightly more intense now and definitely very changed. I too have been going through a lot of changes. I have been coaching, healing others, and healing myself. My greatest healing is that I have finally cracked a circle on becoming an author. I have a Read More
I have no doubt that some of you reading this you have worries on your mind due to the corona virus, or an election or perhaps the markets. I have other issues. My own human shortcomings have been raising their heads lately and I have spent winter fighting depression, and not really doing enough to deal with my life problem. My addiction is up and staring me in the face as a possible way out. Of course it’s not an Read More
First of all, let’s be really clear. Meditation as used in this context is simply focusing on the breath. It’s nothing else. I focus on the air coming in through my nostrils and out through my nostrils. I try to be conscious of it going down into my body, and back out. That’s it. It’s not journeying, or imagining or even repeating a mantra. All of this stuff can help and be complimentary to meditation , but for me, it’s Read More
When you know you can do better, or even when you feel you should, you could be guilty of putting yourself under pressure. However at this time of year with pressure to be happy, and pressure to spend coming at us from all angles it can be really hard to see the wood for the trees. I know I am not the only one who has sought refuge in a blanket a sofa and Netflix in November and December. Truth Read More
Hi. It’s a been a while. I got preoccupied with a CARE Economy project in the Philippines. Then preoccupied with teaching and just making a living. When I went to get back to posting the site was broken and my good friend and adviser Claus has just fixed it so I am back. I have had a lot of people through my place this summer due to my being a host on couchsurfing and as is usual I have met Read More
