    Peace is possible

    The belief that what doesn’t kill us makes us stronger is a lie. Yes, it may prepare us for greater trials and opportunities, but we also grow impatient or intolerant if we repeatedly faced with the same or similar challenge. Life begins to feel stagnant and suffocating of we find ourselves faced with the same […]

  • Make space for peace

    Make space for peace

    Don’t go searching for peace. Get rid of the noise and peace will find its way to you. When you find yourself in darkness, it doesn’t help to try to contain the darkness, does it? Instead, we go in search of a means to create l light. Similarly, when you’re desiring peace, you need to […]

    Soul food

    The physical form demands fulfilment, while the soul demands peace. Too often, we mistake the fulfilment of our physical needs to be soul food, and we neglect our soul.

    This is most true for religious subscription and cultural heritage, but applies to every relationship in our life.

Obligation inspires contempt because it is most often associated with the threat of a negative repercussion. What drives […]

    The understanding seeker

    Seek to understand, so that you may be able to accept the events of your life with peace, rather than feeling compelled to let go with bitterness. It’s the inclination to want to be heard that denies us peace when we’re not heard. Or to want to be acknowledged when we are dismissed. Rather than […]
