The Truth Over Illusion

The awareness of the decisions we make within a moment helps us to seek the truth rather than maintaining an illusion. Seeing something for what it is can be hard rather than choosing to see something as we wish it to be. Whether that be a person or a relationship, an environment, a situation and…

Something to get you Writing and Thinking

One of my favourite ideas or concepts I’ve come across through my readings (The Secret by Rhonda Byrne, if you fancy a read too) and something that I remind myself about daily is that, there is nothing that you can imagine that doesn’t already exist for you. My interpretation of this is basically we are…

The “Shoulds” and the “Musts”

The concept of “Should dos” and “Musts dos” in our lives (an idea about living a life aligned with our authentic selves). WARNING: The word should is used to excess. The Origin of Should Should, is how other people influence and see fit for us to live our lives. They are a set of cookie…

Turkey: A Guide to Cappadocia

Cappadocia, a remote area located in Central Turkey. If you haven’t yet had the pleasure of hearing about this dream location or viewing the growing number of snapshots showcasing breath taking views from highpoints in the valleys, where the sunrise features as the backdrop to a plethora of billowing and grandiose hot air balloons this will be…

The Distance Between

The distance between railway tracks, 143.5cm (4ft 8 ½ inches). Why this particular measurement? The first train carriages were built with the same tools as horse drawn carriages. So, why that particular distance between the wheels of the carriage? Because that was the width of the old roads that the carriages had to travel along….

The Hundredth Monkey

I recently read a study conducted in 1952. Reliability and the actual occurrence of the study even taking place was called into question, that it may just be a myth. Regardless the study enthralled me and mythical or not I enjoyed it. Here’s the gist of it. Scientists were providing monkeys with sweet potatoes dropping…

Dear Mr President (POEM)

It’s not real, it’s a conspiracy, it just doesn’t exist. A concept created by China to destroy the US. It’s a complete delusion and irresponsible too, To spread propaganda and call it “Fake news”. With higher altitudes it’ll effect you last, Higher tides, a lack of drinking water, it’ll be slightly warmer. Meanwhile we’ve lost…

The Haze (Self Help Piece)

When life gets overwhelming, it feels like you’re snowed under with tasks, the mundane routines we so often get stuck in and the feelings and emotion that can infiltrate our mind and bodies. The mist sets in, the haze starts to descend and before we know it we’re driving down a foggy highway with no…

A View on Equality

What essentially makes us superior to all other things that inhabit this earth? Could it be our opposable thumbs? (The thumbs we use so eloquently while writing our text messages). Could it be our ability to get in our cars and drive (I don’t know what kind of animal could do that). Could it be…

Travelling Lessons

We live in a society of safety and security where we’re comfortable. Where we know what we know and what we don’t know is tolerable as long as it doesn’t interfere too much with our daily routines, norms or change what we know. Where difference is okay and sometimes interesting to learn about but it…

Meant to be Felt (The Range of Human Emotion)

Do not have a bad thought about anyone. Do not say bad things about others. Refrain from being negative. Do not get angry at others. Don’t show too much happiness around others (people may misinterpret your feelings). Be positive at all times and wish everyone well. Most important of all, whatever you do, DO NOT…
