The knowing Universe

The universe knows us more than we know ourselves. Although consciously I never gave the universe a thought as a child, unconsciously I always knew there was something bigger out there, something bigger than myself.

Now when I look back, I realise that the life I’ve had has shaped and defined my life. My blog wouldn’t exist without it. All possibilities happen through Divine Timing, the idea that everything happens at its …

My choice

Having cerebral palsy is like riding on a run-away train, driver-less and out of control with no way to get off and heading towards a destination that I can neither see, nor have a choice as to where the journey will take me.
