Message for 2022

2021 has been a year of stretching and growing and we have seen that in a multitude of ways.  For anyone used to sticking to a routine it has been challenging as events seem to change from one moment to the next. Long term plans rapidly became short term and…

Full Moon and Call to Action

The last full moon of the year is December 19 and for the past few days I have heard from several people that they have felt more emotional or situations have become more intense. We may attribute this to the present pandemic situation with numbers rising globally and general fatigue…

Looking Forward

How does one keep positive when surrounded by negative news, alarming information and being unable to literally move forward without any restrictions? Perhaps restrictions were always in place and we didn’t notice them as much because there were more options available. For example, visiting another country and being allowed to…

Pro-peace or anti-war?

Is the future cast in stone?

Recently I came across a BBC series in their Reel section discussing this very topic. It gives two equally convincing theories: one that the future is already predetermined and that the future has already happened in the block universe and the other theory indicates that there are variables and infinite possibilities of the future in the block universe. One suggests we have no free will at all even though we appear to make choices and the other suggests infinite

What’s the point?

The Little Engine That Could – most of us are familiar with that story. Keep on going and eventually you will get there. If at first you don’t succeed, try, try, try, again. All those affirmations and people suggesting to you “Fake it till you make it”. These sound so good in theory, getting everyday results we want may not be easy at all and affirmations could even have a detrimental effect because they appear so far from the existing situation!
