Purposeful Connections

It is fascinating when you understand how the universe connects with us and how those connections bring people into our lives, if only for a fleeting moment. On our part, it is important we understand why people aren’t supposed to stay, or why we’re not supposed to stay in other people’s lives.

Often, people will come into our lives fleetingly, with a message that will help us move on. They may come at a time where we’re either mentally or emotionally stuck, unbeknown to us we’re not always aware …

My different thinking

Unfortunately, because my brain is configured differently to that of a normal thinking brain, how I get to see things is back to front, like a rewired plug. That includes any processes that requires forward or normal emotional thinking.

Our senses & being mindful

Mindfulness is an art, brought about through our observations. For those of us who practise, taking note of our surroundings is something we do continually, always observing. Always in touch with our environment, always observing the world.

Working with an other’s ego

People who work from their ego will always make other people’s life difficult. Unfortunately, we can never get to know anyone whose identity and ego have become intertwined.

We can’t go back

We can’t go back to yesterday we were different people then. If we were to go back, we wouldn’t know what we know now, we’ve grow emotionally and mentally through our experiences.

I wouldn’t be writing, and my life would never change because the people in it would still be the same. To go back we would all have to change. When times are difficult, we think we want to go back to simpler times …
