We’ve got this one all wrong.

How often have you been told to let go of that which no longer serves you?

And you do it, time and time again.

What a strange way to look at the world.

As if we are somehow here to be served?

Mistaking ourselves for Gods, instead of humble servants.

Perhaps this is not The Way that it was intended.

Perhaps we were never meant to be the narcissists we’ve turned out to be

Perhaps there are some things worth holding onto

Not in the service of yourself, but rather in the service of others

In the service of something bigger than you

Perhaps we’ve become so attached to the temporal nature of this world

That we’ve forgotten that nature is not temporal, nor is it bound by this world.

We’re so disillusioned,

So caught up in our pursuit of happiness, that we’ll trample on who ever we need to, 

just to get ourselves there.

Pursuit, as if it’s some kind of race, 

And happiness as if it’s some prize left to claim at the end of it. 

We’re so willing to accept the sacrifices of others to us, but not so willing to make them ourselves (to others).

This really says something about what we’ve become.

Oh my, how wrong we’ve got it.

So addicted to our own glorification

And to satisfying our own needs

So enamored with ourselves, that we’ve completely missed the point.

  • 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.
