Through the Coronavirus

The more I reflect on where we are with the coronavirus, the more able to reconcile the reasons we got to this place, the more I shudder. We’ve not done ourselves any favours.

We must use this time in lock down to think about how we got to this place and must now change ourselves and our lifestyles. It’s not enough for us to think others will change therefore we don’t have to. We must all come through the coronavirus changed people, so future generations may have a life.

Global warming is our biggest threat. The use of our cars, how we …

Reflecting on the Coronavirus

The coronavirus has become part of our lives, therefore, it’s important we take time to reflect on it. It’s not a time to ignore, or think it’s for someone else to reflect that we don’t have to.

We must be ready to change the way we do things. It’s not enough for us to think about change and then quickly dismiss it as if it’s not our problem, or it won’t happen to us. We must start to be proactive …

Understanding spirituality

My spiritual beliefs have always been with me. Spirituality is not always fully understood and it needs honing; it is something I have come to know. For those like me who are spiritual, but not religious, we reject traditional organised religion.

Being spiritual is not the same as being religious. Religion is about worship, a system of belief, and involves a code of ethics and believing in god. Spirituality is the quality of being spiritual, non-physical spiritual …

The Whole Story

When we come to understand our lives we know the whole story, why our lives turn out the way they do. I couldn’t have done what I have without me understanding the whole story.

Without understanding the whole story, I wouldn’t understand me. It is because I understand my life that I understand myself. For the first time I feel comfortable being who I am. Let’s face it my disability …

The Coronavirus & change

What would be the point of living a nightmare for months with something like the ‘Coronavirus’ and then not change anything through the other side? We must come through different people, we must change. It’s too big a catastrophe to ignore.

If like me, you believe things happen for a reason, then the Coronavirus is the reason. The universe is asking us to think about our planet, think about the world in the whole, the bigger picture, to think …

Self-interest

Self-interest is to have an excessively high regard for oneself, to be conceited. It’s not difficult for us to see those who are.

Governments must show less signs of self-interest and self-importance. Their job isn’t about them. We must be ourselves without an ego, not in a smarmy look at me kind of way, but in a way that allows us …

Feeling safe

As a child I had a right to feel safe and secure. Children and adults alike all have a right to feel safe. It is the responsibility of parents and family members to create and make sure we’re in an emotional and physical safe environment, but not all parents have the know how or capacity to fulfill that responsibility.

But safety isn’t just someone protecting us physically from harm, making sure we have a roof over our head, or feeding us, safety also means protecting us emotionally, psychologically and spiritually, which are …

The World Pandemic

Months into the World Pandemic and we need to start standing back and ask ourselves why we have it and what we can do to protect ourselves, if we are to have a future. Our thoughts must go out to those who are fighting the virus, for the loss of life.

We’re getting this wrong. We’re not looking after ourselves in a way that helps us or the natural world, we’re not keeping ourselves safe. We’re too quick to think about what we want, more than giving back …
