As established religions continue to be torn apart and traditional ways of living are challenged by a emerging secular culture, what’s been torn down with it are whole systems of belief.

Value structures that have underpinned how people commune and how individuals have been able to make sense of the world and their place in it.

As these meta-narratives, these systems of beliefs are increasingly challenged, so too are our perceptions.

Whereas we once built our lives on and around these foundations and pillars, they are now being reduced to rubble, leaving us to rebuild them ourselves.

Replacing what had been understood and established over millennia, with a pseudo-style do it yourself spirituality and moral framework, serving not a God, but rather our own desires and ego in our ‘ultimate pursuit of happiness’.

Whether you realize it or not, beliefs are the basis on which you interact with the world

The ground on which everything else is built

These beliefs can affirm the way you live your life, or limit how you perceive the world and your role in it.

But what we do know, is that not understanding what you believe will inevitably leave a void

A vacuum of sorts, that needs to be filled – it’s inevitable, because that’s how vacuums work.

Beliefs are the lens through which you see the world

The structure required to be able to navigate your way through life

It’s what shapes your whole experience.

Beliefs are embodied, imprinted into your being and it’s only through internal transformation, that these beliefs can be reshaped or reformed.

The ultimate goal then is to have your beliefs visibly reflected in how you actually live your life.

Alignment. Embodiment.

So be intentional with your beliefs

Because if you don’t fill this vacuum yourself, someone or something else fills it for you.

  • The Decision of No Decision
    Indecision is a decision in and of itself, even though you may not recognise it as such. Your decision to do nothing – to let things play out on their own. It’s taking a back seat and waiting to see how the chips may fall.
  • 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.
  • Symphony of Sadness
    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
