Yes, I would like to receive blogs, info and general ponderings.

Money, Money, Money

by

I’ve been noticing more and more the negative effect of extreme wealth and power. It seems that many of us human beings are not really made for having everything we want. It can tend to bring with it no real sense of accountability. Being rich, untouchable and doing and saying whatever we feel like seems […] Read more…

Repeat after me: “My Body is Not a Machine”

by

Actually, I wonder if my body would be better off being thought of as a machine. At least it would get serviced regularly and I wouldn’t expect it to keep going when it’s broken and needs repair. I have improved in this area so much though. Twenty-five years ago I was regularly working fourteen hour […] Read more…

Being OF Service Not IN Servitude

by

  Being of service wasn’t something that we talked about at home when I was a child.  My mum had a strong sense of social justice though, especially in her involvement in the women’s liberation movement in the 70’s.  She helped rehouse women and children who were homeless and was an activist for change. I […] Read more…

A Thought is Just a Thought, it’s Not Reality

by

Just because I THINK something doesn’t make it true or real. This may seem really obvious and yet how many of us forget this and act on our thinking as though it’s fact? Work is a goldmine of opportunities for negative thoughts. Challenges to our ego, our competence, and our illusion of control occur with […] Read more…

Reclaiming Time and Space from Technology

by

Last week, I was feeling unhappy with how much time I was spending on technology, particularly my phone. There was a time when I didn’t look at emails or check facebook before my morning meditation, spiritual reading, and writing practice. Since I started my business, I have slipped into more random checking of devices throughout […] Read more…

Trying Hard is Not All It’s Cracked up to be

by

Everybody loves a person who tries hard – don’t they? I thought that “going all out” and “giving it all I had” were traits of a good person, someone that gets stuff done. My self-esteem was very dependent on myself and others seeing me as a doer, a striver. I had no idea that I […] Read more…

How My Beliefs About Work & Success Nearly Killed Me

by

  I didn’t walk around knowing that I had some erroneous, even dangerous beliefs. They were hidden below the surface of my consciousness. You don’t know what you don’t know until you know it. It is only in looking back, that I saw I had a bunch of unsound assumptions about things and I acted […] Read more…

Working Too Hard? 20 Easy Ways to Take Time Out at Work

by

Most people will find a million excuses not to stop and take time out at work, whether they work for themselves or someone else. Time seems to be the most sought after commodity theses days. Funnily enough the more we try and fit in, and the more we rush, the harder the job is. The […] Read more…

The Real Job Description

by

  Now that I don’t work in someone else’s business I have been having some difficulty with what my current job is. The desire to try and formulate a list of some description or a clear picture of what it is that I do is giving me much food for thought. The last time I […] Read more…

Why TAKING CONTROL Doesn’t Work

by

    I realize that trying to control things is fundamentally opposed to what life is. Life, nature, the essence of us all is ever changing, ever evolving and it seems that we might be the only species attempting to control this uncontrollable force. I typed “take Control of ” into Google and the most […] Read more…
