I want perfection and I want it now!

TweetWhere does this idea come from?!  And why is our worst case of perfectionism usually focused on ourselves, or those closest to us.  People, in other words.  Non-perfect beings. I bet almost all of us have this disease in some form or another.  We expect the impossible from both ourselves AND others, an expectation that…

Dilemmas, Contradictions and Dichotomies – Living in a Complex Universe

Tweet  Me, I love a good dichotomy. It’s when I’m surest of all, that I’ve likely stumbled on something useful.  I think of a dichotomy as a kind of mind-bending contradiction; a higher order of contradiction that involves points of particular value. In the pursuit of our Vision and Purpose, we will especially find early on in that…

Meditation as a Path to Peace, Part II

A definition of meditation, for which I insert Wikipedia’s introduction (ref): Meditation is a practice in which an individual trains the mind and/or induces a mode of consciousness to realize some benefit, although it can be argued meditation is a goal in and of itself.

Global Citizenship

TweetA word in favour of contribution. Whether or not you think in terms of your vision being global or local, designed to impact the lives of others or just your own, everything you do does impact globally, and does impact the lives of others. I love the theory of the butterfly effect, which you can…

Vision and Purpose

TweetVision and Purpose. Common enough words these days, but pretty difficult to figure out.  There’ve been so many words like this used and misused in corporate circles and the ‘happiness’ industry, that it’s any wonder some value remains in them today. They are though important and useful words.  They can provoke a wide range of definitions, so…

Why We Write…

TweetHaving an actual book in one’s hands with one’s own name on the cover as author is a wonderful feeling.  Writing itself is damn hard work.  I spoke to some friends about why they write…   Sheila Burke, author of Booyah! Spirit & Zen-Sational Living & Circle of Soul. When I first started blogging years ago, I really just…

The Meaning of Things

TweetWe owe each other and the world so much more thoughtful consideration of the “why” of things, before we open our mouths.   There is always more than just what we see and more than our own immediate and emotional responses. In our rush to assert our right to free speech, to “express ourselves”, to…
