When Our Perspectives Fail Us

Uncategorized Jun 02, 2019

A common mistake we all make is thinking our perspectives or opinions are facts.

Facts do not alter no matter how to we look at it, no matter from which angle, how we are feeling and so on. A fact is: the sun rises in the east. No matter how we want to twist it or feel about it, it doesn’t change the fact that the sun does rise in the east. Every single day.

The thing is nothing is as consistent as the sunrise. And what trails far behind inconsistently are our perspectives and...

When We Have Feelings Of Being Undeserving

How often have we come across someone — our friends, family who feel undeserving of the job they want, or the relationship they want, or they feel they are not good enough for the other person, or they feel that the life is too good for them?

Or worse, how often have you experienced this yourself? Where you push opportunities such as people, job opportunities, business opportunities away. Thinking you’re not good enough?

Even though mentally you want them, but your...

Why We Can't Stop Having Problems

Are you tired of having problems, over and over again?

Its as if they never end. When you solve one, another one surfaces. And you start to wonder if you will ever get a break.

The thing is if we stop having problems, life ends. I know this is not what you want to hear.

We all want a life where it is trouble-free and that everything is smooth sailing. But we are never going to get that, as long as we are an evolving species.

Isn't it frustrating?

Well, life is literally like a...

Feeling Stuck? It's just a nicer way to say you're afraid

How often have we felt stuck in our career, projects, relationships, connections, and so on and we feel we can't progress or take the next step.

So we just wait.

The thing is, even when we wait, we can't get unstuck.

We are just waiting for the situation, or circumstances to change themselves. And hopefully, we will get únstuck'. But deep inside us, we all know that things do not change on their own.

Have you thought about the time when you felt stuck, perhaps a relationship,...

When Your Days Are Blah

Remember the days when you feel just blah. 

Uninspired. 

Lacking lustre.

And you find it meaningless to do anything because you are not seeing the results you are expecting.

All you want to do is to crawl into bed and sleep the day away, hoping the mood will go away and tomorrow will be better. The thing is, it is not the day that is causing you to feel this way. 

It is you.

Remember these few words, which I tell my clients often: MOVEMENT IS LIFE. When we move...

Guilt does not serve as a reminder to make us better people

We, humans, are such strange creatures, we hold on to things that are not healthy for us, we fear them, and yet we have a strange attachment to them. Because in our unconscious, we feel as if without that which is causing us to fear, we might not be alive! So we often hold onto guilt feelings and guilt thoughts. And this can manifest in many different aspects of our lives. We feel guilty about not being a better parent, a better spouse, a better partner, a better worker, employee, a...

A to Z list of things to be aware of if you are on any path

Uncategorized Jan 28, 2019

A list of things to be aware of if you are on any spiritual path — whether you are on the path of new age, whether you are Christian, Buddhists, Muslim, Hindu or others….
A – Arrogance
Holier than thou and condescending attitudes do not sit well with people in general. Moreover, it is pure arrogance to think that you are right while others are not. No one has the ULTIMATE answer while on earth. Everyone is doing what they perceive as best and just get on with life. This is...

The Topic Of Procrastination

All of us procrastinate. Some of us more than others.

We tend to do better when there is a deadline. So for work, we usually deliver, for important stuff with deadlines where our reputation may be on the line, we deliver.

However, for things that are specifically for our own personal lives -- lose weight, work on personal accounts, file taxes, personal and spiritual growth, clean the home etc, all of these do not have deadlines per se. And so we sweep them under the carpet, and not think...

How Adaptable Are You?

I meet lots of people in the personal development circle on a regular basis, and most have the idea that to grow, they need to have the knowledge, they need to learn, and so they go for workshops after workshops only to realise that after spending lots of money being a workshop junkie, they are still the same. 

What is missing?

If you are a person who believes in personal development, and you want to grow as a person emotionally, mentally and spiritually, one of the most important...

Are You Using Your Happiness Experience Simulator Enough?

Happiness is our psychological immunity.

Just as we get our daily dose of Vitamin C to up our physical immunity, we also need a dose of happiness to up our psychological immunity. 

Then you may ask, I can pop a Vit C pill, how do I pop a happiness pill (other than state altering pills, which is not only dangerous and in most places illegal)?

What if we could “manufacture” this happiness pill in our own minds? We all have this capacity, we just don’t use...
