Even God took a day to rest.

Just one day, set aside as a sacred day

A day to count the blessings, to be introspective, to appreciate the sanctity of life and all of creation

If God, in the great creation stories, took a day to rest, why then, do we believe we don’t need one?

Why then, do we trouble ourselves with the pursuit of more things?

Trying to mine for more time like mining for gold, without giving ourselves a moment to appreciate what we already have

What is it about our culture that prevents us from switching off?

Is it to maximize convenience?

Is it to maximize profit?

Are we too afraid to sit in silence, to be alone, just for one day?

Are we somehow greater than God?

He took a day, but we somehow don’t need to!?!

The point is, nature has a certain rhythm to it, a flow.

There’s a certain harmony and you either learn to dance with it, or you’ll quickly burn yourself out.

Because the candle that burns twice as bright, burns half as long.

So reclaim your Sunday, make it a thing.

Be closed for business, at least for one day.

Set some time aside and create the space, because the reality is, no one is going to create it for you.

Use this time to receive and give blessings, putting creation into its proper perspective.

Because despite what you may think or believe, the reality remains, that you are part of this creation and this creation remains a part of you.

  • Taking your second chance
    It’s pointless, because history will always be confined to history. Instead it may be time to look yourself in the mirror, at the risk of not liking what you see. Because getting it right, means being honest with yourself. It comes with the brutality of having to confront your own demons, And being able and willing to take the hits. So take your second chance. Don’t look back in anger, maintain the hope And be determined to do things a little different.

    There’s a great symphony in sadnessA million things conspiring beautifully together to set a sombre tone. It’s a tragedy, no doubt. Irrational at times, often transcending words or reason.But incomprehensible in...
  • Communication is not a one way street
    Communication is not a one way street. It’s not about talking, it’s about listening. It’s not about reacting, it’s about responding. It’s not about knowing, It’s about understanding. It’s not about judgement or pretense It’s about connection.
  • Leaving it all behind
    Some things are certainly worth holding onto -  Others we just hold onto because we are too afraid to say goodbye.  Not because we can’t But because doing so means facing our own mortality
  • Ahead of the game
    It’s easy to play life on the back foot Always playing defence. Always waiting, always passive, always reactive.
