Well isn’t this nice, here we are, surviving our current era of human existence. It may be a far gentler version of the Black Plague, using the broad shoulders of Netflix, Zoom and Uber eats for our support, however, surviving we are.  I’m all for suffering, ...

I have recently debated philosophy of law with my best friend. One of the biggest difficulties in interpreting (and thereby) enforcing, our constitution is that while human rights have been both recognised and included in our law, it is insurmountably difficult to define exactly what ...

None of us are totally bereft of self worth, we may acknowledge ourselves worthy in our artistic talent, our negotiation skills, a subject we excelled at, or a sport we thoroughly enjoy.  Where we lack true worth, are the areas within ourselves that we feel ...

I have long pondered the difference between radical zealots, versus the ordinary citizen who is content watching YouTube videos and complaining about their neighbour.  To me the defining difference is obvious: purpose.  Our energy, creative power, focus and passion are all contained within the structure ...

A rather wonderful ability of human beings is our ability to find the positive and celebrate crisis with memes and good humour. We are resilient little mammals that keeps us bravely (and sometimes ignorantly) marching through the challenges of our times.  Up yours The Great ...

Wow it has been a looooooong time since I have put pen to paper. Like you, I entered lockdown with a list of things I would accomplish that ordinarily I didn't have time for. Things like learn a new song on the piano, paint, cook, ...

It’s no stretch of the imagination to see how all human creation is a reflection of our psyche. From industry to geography, we have carved our mental and emotional shadow into the construction of our world. All human invention is a road map of our evolution of consciousness. ...

Victimhood. Don’t deny it now, there have been times in your life when you were unapologetically, completely justifiably, a suffering victim. I am not speaking about being a true victim of crime or economic disasters, but rather when some nefarious person or circumstance conspires to make your life ...

Change is the ultimate paradox of the human experience; we are constantly changing through the aging process, our experiences and our environment, and yet the vehicle in which we operate pretty much hates change of all kind. You know what I’m speaking about…you want to ...

Let’s be honest, we’ll never know if Covid-19 was manufactured, merely a common flu, an airborne zombie creator, or a convenient excuse for politicians to change legislation and increase their power. I am sure you are as saturated with conspiracy theories, data confusion and frustration as I ...

Leo Tolstoy described time and patience as ‘the two most powerful warriors’, He wrote these words in War and Peace and while he was referring to how best to outmanoeuvre your enemy during war, I would like to offer a different interpretation. I have had the opporunity to speak to many ...

As the world pulls down the roller-doors on social engagement and commerce, the media predictably explodes with conspiracy theories, racism, fear-mongering, and profiteering.  I am personally excited to see the growth potential that this time brings us. For the first time since WWII, we have ...

Recently I got honest with myself (I do this frequently but I tend to shy away from the deeper truths I need to ignore in order to fight another day). The true status of my anxiety and stress levels was one such truth I preferred to ...

I had an enlightening experience two days ago—after many weeks of being ill (with a ridiculously slow recovery) my rock-climbing ability had suffered. I had dropped around 5 grades in my fitness and as a result, I was feeling despondent, weak, and not at all like myself.  You ...

It is human nature to keep seeking more and better, when this urge is upon us we know it is time for a change. But over time we lose perspective on why we wanted this change or set a goal. We forget our motivators and begin focusing on what we are ...
