Writing The Story Of Your Life – Part 1

Writing The Story Of Your Life – Part 1

For hundreds of years philosophers, historians, neuroscientists, psychologists and psychiatrists have put forward many differing theories regarding how a child develops. This has varied from being genetically programmed to developing personality through ‘nurture or nature’. Many believe that both theories are correct. Looking back on the belief systems operating in our ancestor’s history, it’s a wonder that any of us survived with a...

Forgiveness Starts From Within

Forgiveness Starts From Within

Are you still gnawing on the old bones of the unburied past? In 1985,  as part of my self-development programme, I spent a weekend doing a Cybernetics Workshop; and I was most impressed with not only the content of the course, but also the great people who ran it.

"I am responsible for my own happiness" Happiness is a feeling, just like anxiety and fear, which comes in waves; it can’t sustain itself because it’s not humanly possible to be happy all the time.

Lady Gaga - "Surrounded By Fans - But So Alone"

I don't waste my money buying glossy magazines, apart from the great design and the glossiness of them, they usually bore the pants off me! All those lipsticks, each promising to make our lips look like Angelina Jolie! Fat chance of that unless we subject ourselves to Botox! All those expensive moisturisers that swear to take ten years off our face! The fact is that they use 14 year old models to advertise their latest miracle product. Not much...

Becoming Real & Growing Up

Becoming Real & Growing Up

“This above all: to thine own self be true, and it must follow, as the night the day, thou canst not then be false to any man” Will Shakespeare; Active awareness is being aware of what is happening to us ‘as its happening’.
