We are all playing a losing hand, we are all in and sooner or later the house will win. The only thing will we get to decide is how we play the game, we get to choose whether we play with grace, ease and joy, or complain that the game is rigged and that everyone ends up bankrupt. Living means losing, our innocence, the protection of our parents, our greatest ...

There are lots of beautiful patterns in nature, from spiders webs to scattered rainbow colours, but patterns that I am concerned about are patterns of regularity in the world, man-made design or abstract ideas that repeats in a predictable manner, and in particular the patterns of our lives and habits. We all have them, the minds preference is to develop habits which saves its energy, it is easier for the ...

Every garden in the world started with a desire for something more, more than the purely utilitarian need for food, a desire for beauty and peace, a place of order in a world of chaos, something better. No one knows for sure why the hunter gatherers first started changing and manipulating the natural world around us, it might have started with simple weeding to protect their favourite plants, helping a ...

Every person has a unique set of problems and life situation, however there are common, universal challenges that we all face. We might have different budgets, skills and advantages, but we all only have 24 hours in a day. Despite the phrase buying time, no-one really gets to do that, it is a non-negotiable, you only get a fixed amount and is up to you as to how you spend ...

There is nothing like seeing a child gaining their balance on a bike for first time. That moment when they suddenly start moving faster through their own efforts than they ever have before is magical. Not just for you but for them too, it often their first experience of what it is like to be independent and capable of changing, expanding and challenging the limitations of their lives. It is ...

We want to help others, it is a primaeval urge, to care and protect, to help and carry the burdens of those who we love. When a child learns to ride a bike, we support them as they find their balance, firmly at first and then with progressively lighter touches, until we are just there as an invisible shield to catch them if they fall. However once they have a ...

Throughout civilisation, societies have always oscillated between being divided and united, they face hard problems with uncertain outcome, and where there are legitimate different approaches there will be disagreement and comparison between the different ideas. Societies are predisposed to take two different sides, it is what our own minds do, they compare two alternatives and decide on what is better for them, though when communities do this there are competing ...

The purpose of Stoicism is to choose to deliberately pursue and create a good life, or at least a better life than your current life situation. It is a method to increase your personal control and achieve growth as a being of consciousness, which stoics believe is the underlying common purpose of all humanity. However before we can purposely grow, we have to accept and be aware of our current ...

Pain is the most direct form of communication that you will experience in your life. If you put your hand into a fire, the pain will bypass the thinking part of the mind. The pain and the hand will act together without bothering to consult any higher authority, they do not ask the ego whether it wants to carry on, they simply react and pull your hand away from danger. ...

We want to change the world, we want it to be better but did the world ask us to change it? If you want to see the world as a broken place, wrecked by human interference, sucked dry of its resources, and an endless list of problems, each one of which is in itself impossible to fix, that will be the world that you experience. Instead we can accept ...
