Just A Thought For Monday

Don’t keep beating  yourself up with the ‘should haves’ Simply learn from your experience and keep reaffirming to yourself the phrase ‘all is well’ even when it’s a struggle to do so. It will calm you down. A consistent focus on all the should have’s of the past is like running in reverse.

A Little Reflective Exercise For You Today

A little exercise for your self-exploration in conjunction with the ‘what about you’ affirmation challenge.


Our Times, Our Spirituality… Thoughts For Tuesday

Knowing Peace, Living Stress free, Spirituality

Our times are fraught with stress and quick-fixes. A fast-forward micro-waved lifestyle that’s corrosive. We may need to relearn how to enjoy life on the slow ‘cos life is not a drive-thru and you are not in competition with anyone but yourself.

Our lives should be a daily spiritual experience even in the mundaneness of it all. We must make concerted efforts to be in tune with our inner selves and this is not on an experience that can be placed on speed dial. It is a cultivated practice that doesn’t involve spending hundreds of hours in euphoric states of levitation.

Of course, there are times when we might experience a big spiritual AHA moment and there are incidents that may leave us in deep reflection and awe but at all times but as we go through the process of living life, our lives should be a reflection of certain things:

A Beacon of peace and humanity
A Testimony of faith and hope
A Source of Love, strength and goodwill
Of Mercy, laughter and joy (irrespective of the dark clouds that seek to hover).
Of acceptance and love of yourself so that you can be able to love someone else (if you have none, you can’t give any)
Of the goodness that you wish to see in the world.

There will always be two sides of everything; Light and Dark and this equally exists with spirituality. There is the Light side of spirituality and the Dark side of spirituality.

It is up to us to choose the path on which we wish to walk.

No Grill…Stream of Consciousness Saturday

We are not allowed to use an open grill in our apartment for safety reasons and this is one thing that I miss sorely. I recall Summer days of cook-out back in Houston, the camaraderie of family visits and it almost seems like aeons ago. Time flies.

Some parks allow the use of charcoal grill but the UAE is getting a tad too hot for such indulgence so, yours truly has to rely on my kitchens’ oven grill which is not quite the same.

Maybe it’s all in my mind right now – that flavour of sizzling barbecue wafting in from somewhere and causing saliva to pool in my mouth. Let me take a peek out of the window, maybe I’ll go begging for a bite 😉

Monday’s Musing…Inadequate

Now and again, it’s okay to feel inadequate. It’s a personal driving force to do better and to slay your giants.

Don’t let anyone convince you that feeling inadequate only signifies low self-esteem and negativity.

Just A Question….

What do you think?

Is it better not knowing the ugly truth and pretending it doesn’t exist?

Or, is it better to confront the naked truth, knowing that its knowledge may be an albatross that you carry around forever?
