What Is THE Meaning of Life?

I've been watching Stephen Hawkins’s -  Grand Design, and last night’s episode was, ‘The Meaning of Life’.  As I watched the programme I remembered the exact moment in 2002, aged 54, when I realised that there is NO MEANING to life.  I had been quite seriously ill for the previous year and was still in recovery after the break-up of a long-term relationship.

Healing The Pain Of Grief & Loss

Healing The Pain Of Grief & Loss

My first experience of 'loss' came, when in the middle of the night, our family did one of our ‘moonlight flits'. I think I was about 8 years old.

Whatever your wishes are please spare a moment's kind thoughts for all those suffering, homeless or disenfranchised people throughout the world to whom Christmas doesn't happen. May I take...

Why Do We Find It So Hard To Simply Listen?

Why Do We Find It So Hard To Simply Listen?

Nobody's Really Listening! Because as we’re trying to listen, our other senses are automatically interpreting the sounds we hear and trying to make ‘sense’ of what we’re hearing. Our ears are extraordinarily finely tuned instruments. They pick up every sound around us all the time for example; As I lay in bed early this morning I heard;  five Magpies yelling, four Chickens clucking, a Peewit calling, my bedside clock ticking, my own...
