Parenting Friendship

If you talk to your child aggressively, put very simply, they will develop an aggressive relationship with you. If you speak to your child lovingly, with understanding, they will develop a loving and understanding relationship with you…

Resentment

You cannot harbour resentment in one part of your life and be truly, deeply happy in another. True happiness is the heart that holds no resentment, the crystal clear untainted by drops of red…

You are not a Concept

We can never live into a concept. Instead of looking at aspects and traits of who we think we are, we are better served by looking at what we have made up that can be stripped away. Rumi said it best when he said: “Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.”

Love is the Point of Everything

I don't imagine anyone, on their death-bed, would wish they'd hired that coach who pumped them up more and helped them achieve more extraordinary results...

I personally think people are much more grateful for discovering their true essence, and developing a deeper understanding of the nature of being human.

How the Goddess of Ego Hides You from You

Here’s the rub: All the time I am searching in myself for some conceptual ideas of who I think I am or need to be, I am looking for a part of me that only exists in thought. I am actually only ever looking for another part of my ego…

Connected

I’m always surprised, and at the same time reassured, how connected and in alignment we can be with some people, even though, physically, we may be separated by many miles, ideas opinions and outlook. Some connections are beyond this physical realm, for sure, yet leak into it, in ways demonstrating and leaving clues to that connection that can be disputed, yet, once we see, are irrefutable.

I Hugged My Dad Today

If you’ve been following me for a while or read my book, you might have a sense why this is significant.
In fact, I actually can’t remember the last time I did hug him, certainly it was well over 25 years ago. Maybe much, much longer.

Soul Connections

We can talk ourselves out of many things, but a soul connection is not one of them. It is beyond the human ideas of love, attraction, loyalty and marriage. It is always there, an energy calling at our heart to be honoured.

Learning When the Water Settles

There is a huge difference between dwelling on the past, (which essentially means to dwell, to live, in the past,) and reflecting on the past - to take some time to pause and reflect on the lessons our past can provide us.

My Book & My Dad

I’ve not been close to my Dad for quite a few years, and I’m less than complimentary about him in my book, Musings on Love. My intention, however, is that readers see beyond the events I describe, and see the possibility of forgiveness, understanding, peace and love.

You Won't Learn How to Dance from Someone's Facebook Status

I find it so fascinating that what some of us see and feel as truth can be portrayed as myth by others, such is the nature of life. How I see it is how I see it, and may not be how you see it. I’m open to any belief I hold today becoming myth tomorrow.
And of course, the reverse is also true…

My Selfish Fear

The only thing between us and all the clients, success and love that we desire if an obsession with our self.

In almost every conversation I have with clients, there is one emotion that we all use as a means to hold us back from serving others: fear.

Happy Birthday Love

Your body, heart, soul and mind, your being as it is today, has infinite capacity and capability to love. You might be entertaining many stories of past trauma and pain, and similar stories of limitations for your future. Yet no story changes your infinite capacity to love and feel love. It is always there, in you, it is you, whether you see it or not.

Love Is.

I saw a post today that suggested the way to know if you love someone is by not wanting them to change.

If you were the first person I ever met I would have no one to compare you to. I would have no experiences on which to base my expectations of you. I would create a world of you made only of what I see of you.

The Illusion of Me

When I spend time with people exploring the nature of the human experience, and exploring the true essence of love, in an intimate group setting, such as I had the privilege to do last week, I am reminded of the beauty and simplicity of allowing our true nature out into the world.

Listen to Your Teddy

When I was a child I used to have conversations with my teddy bear. Whatever was going on he listened lovingly, and in that calm I was able to hear the wisdom of love, albeit I thought it was coming from my beautiful soft toy.

The Miracle of You

Do you know the odds of you being you? There’s been a few articles floating around illustrating these odds, gatrillions and trazillions to one chance of you being conceived as you, being born in your country, and living on this piece of rock that’s spinning at a thousand miles an hour whilst travelling through space at 67,000 miles an hour.

Offended

Whenever we declare someone has offended us we are essentially saying they are responsible for our feelings, not us. We are attempting to hand over the keys to our experience of life and are confessing to an illusion that what someone says or does is what determines our own feelings, which is simply not true.

Believing Like I'm a Rapist

Believing I need to change external circumstances to change how I feel is a similar strategy to having women dress differently to avoid being raped.

What to Do with Sadness

Throat choking sadness… what to do with it?

In some ways a strange question. I know when I feel happy the thought “what shall I do with this happiness?” never occurs to me. I know I don’t need to do anything with it.

Don't be a Thought Terrorist

“How can you be so happy when people are dying, being bombed and murdered?”

A common question. And I can see the sense in it. With so much going on in the world today, a world where acts of terrorism anywhere are reported immediately the world over, we can find plenty of reasons to put aside our love and happiness and choose fear, hatred and sadness instead.
