have you ever wondered?

thought-provoking nuggets that will inspire you to look a little deeper into what you think you know about life, the universe and everything else….

seeking attention

Have you ever wondered about people who are constantly looking for attention?  They can be tiresome and draining.  The best way to deal with them is to ignore them, don’t give them the attention they want, right?  Wrong!  All human beings, irrespective of age strive in their own way for just one thing; to be…

other people’s lives

Have you ever wondered about other people’s lives?  It’s tempting to ponder, judge or otherwise become emotionally involved in the decisions others make, their motives, their actions.  It’s tempting to give advice and suggestions, both solicited and unsolicited.  It is enticing because the more time we spend in other people’s business, the less present we…

being self-centred

Have you ever wondered what is so wrong with being self-centred?  There is confusion between selfish & self-centred.  To be self-centred is to be, as the word describes, centred in the self; to be authentic, clear and conscious.  If you are not centred in self, then you are off-centre, unbalanced.  Selfishness is egocentric, centred in…

just give up!

Have you ever wondered if there is a time to just give up?  Persistence is a big buzz word these days; “keep at it, keep holding on, never give up!”  What terrible advice!  Life will not be forced into our way of doing things.  If you are not getting the results; give up!  Give up…

shifting into results

Have you ever wondered, how you would know that you have shifted?   It may happen that we may feel stuck in spite of doing a lot of work on ourselves.  We may be using positive affirmations, reading self-help books, enlisting the help of a coach or therapist and not be sure if it is doing…

absolute freedom

Have you ever wondered what you would do if you had absolute freedom? Here’s the clincher, you do!  However you argue it, the truth is; we all have absolute freedom. It is so absolute that we freely make rules, freely give meaning to rules, freely bind ourselves to some or all or none of them,…

free will

Have you ever wondered what it means to have “free will”? So often it feels as though we bound by rules and regulations, enslaved by debt, held to ransom with bills to pay, dictated to by the media, fashion and societal expectations of who to be, how to dress, what to earn, where to live. …

letting go

Have you ever wondered how it is that sometimes when you invite new into our lives it doesn’t seem to manifest?  We cannot draw anything new into our lives until we make space for it by letting go of the old.  The “old” may be physical belongings, belief systems, attitudes, emotional wounds or even relationships. …

positive thinking

Have you ever wondered about the power of positive thinking?  We have been told by popular literature and self-help books to practise positive thinking to effect changes in our lives.  It doesn’t work! Reciting positive affirmations that, in our heart of hearts, we disbelieve has no power to change anything.   The unconscious thoughts that we…

allowing

Have you ever wondered what to do when everything that can be done has been done? There often comes a time when we are working to change a situation that we have done everything that is reasonably possible and the results aren’t visible yet.  We may feel compelled in that moment to keep doing, even to…

habits

Have you ever wondered about the difference between habits and other repetitive behaviours?  We all have many repetitive behaviours that we engage in every day, most of which we are unaware of, thus we are unaware of the results created in our lives by those habits.  I wonder about the results caused by a lifetime of unconscious habits.  What results…
