Are You After Standalone Success?

The grass is my carpet. It may not be red, but it definitely keeps me down to earth. - Standalone success“A man’s dignity isn’t measured by the people he has around him when he’s at the peak of his success, but by his ability not to forget those who helped him when his need was greatest.”

– Taken from novel ‘The Winner Stands Alone’ written by Paulo Coelho, Author/Writer.

Q: What is the difference between being mean to yourself and to others? A: Nothing. - Message for a wounded heartIt’s odd, that when someone hurts another person, kills a bit of nature for their own common conveniences or neglects a wounded animal… all the negative attention and criticism comes flooding down their way.

But, when you are bashful to yourself, compare yourself with others to measure your own self-esteem or do things outside of your integrity to climb up in society’s eyes… people often stay reserved from you and your personal agendas.

Let us not give in to external judgement — (more…)

How To Make Peace With Pain

Accept the pain and the pain will subside. Criticize and resent the pain and it will turn into an experience of suffering.

Michael J. Fox, Actor, Author, Producer, Activist/Advocate

Upset? How To Get Out Of Pain

If you really have to, think about why you are upset, rather than what or who upset you. Get out of pain.

So we may be upset and wonder how to get out of pain. It is imprisonment, we are caged in and pushed into this feeling.

Nothing we do can seem to shake it off.

So we look outside — something which is of human nature — it could be easier to deal with our pain as if it is something external that is imposing on us.

Of course. It would be so simple if this struggle was caused by another entity other than our own selves. Then we need not take personal ownership. We would not need to do much about it. (more…)

Why We Need Silence For A Better Life

In silence, a beautiful song is sung. In silence, Loving words are spoken. In silence, a story is written. Just as in darkness, light is seen. Just as in struggles, paths are found. Just as in pain, joy is found. - Silence and acceptance“We need to find God, and he cannot be found in noise and restlessness. God is the friend of silence. See how nature – trees, flowers, grass- grows in silence; see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence… We need silence to be able to touch souls.”

Mother Teresa, (Anjezë Gonxhe Bojaxhiu), 1910 – 1997, Humanitarian, Peacemaker, Founder of Missionaries of Charity

‘Found’ takes place in patient silence, a golden moment. (more…)

Why Be Honest With Yourself?

You, speaking honestly to yourself, is the same as you praying to God.Most of the time we are reacting to ourselves rather than the external.

On a personal note, I have always sought to understand my true self and I honestly believe that has made me a calm and forgiving person. I know, that is a lot to vouch oneself for! However, I do know myself and have seen various relationships heal in my past.

I also know that it was, and at times still is, hard, painfully hard to face myself and know that my reactions come from little crevices within myself that need to be looked at. With Love. (more…)
