Life does not come with a set of gaming instructions, we do not know what the pieces of our life are, which are more valuable and what unique abilities they might possess. Solitude seems to be one of our most undervalued and missing pieces, it is seen as a waste or failure, something that is not desired, antisocial and a bad outcome, but that is to underestimate the power and ...

Passing is what follows arising, it is the very essence of impermanence, the sun rises in the morning and passes into dusk. Every object has its shadow, with every birth there is a death, sadness is contained in every smile, yet we get caught up in the illusion that what is will always be and we feel a sense of dissatisfaction when this turned out not to be true. We ...

Whenever you see a door, do you automatically wonder what is behind it? The smaller, older and more discreet it is, the greater is my curiosity, and as for a secret, hidden door, well that is just an open invitation to investigate. Apparently this is not the same for everyone, there are people who can pay absolutely no attention to doors just because they are closed, and I am perfectly ...

The greatest warriors are not those who fight just once, but those who return to the fight repeatedly when no one else is willing or able, they are the ones who fight the last fight not just the first one. They do so by returning to the fundamentals, they bring their full energy and resources to any and every moment without fail, when they lose, they lose by the numbers ...

There is nothing more uniquely human than boredom, it is one of the true miracles of nature. A trait that none of us would have guessed that natural selection would have favoured, and as nature is not there to do it any favours, it gives us only what we need and not what we want, which produces a hard kind of miracle. The human experience did not emerge to entertain ...

A building without structure is just a pile of bricks, the structure is the framework upon which you can create a beautiful environment for your life. Whilst necessary, a lot of it is invisible, boring and expensive, you can pour a small fortune into the foundations that you will never see again, but without that firm footing you only have a straw house that can be blown over by any ...

When we sacrifice, we give up something of value for a better position or life situation. This should be easy as we are comparing machines, what makes it difficult is that it requires people to be prepared to take on the responsibility of making a sacrifice. The opportunity to make a sacrifice has to be sought out, pursued and taken, it is easy to choose to make a bad situation ...

We inherently distrust the act of evasion in others, the evasion of questions, taxation and obligation, it marks people out as unreliable and to be avoided, social outcasts that should be excluded. It has the reputation of being a tool of clever, manipulating people who tell half-truths without lying but a lack of real honesty. That they conceal what they want and their intentions behind a pleasant fa├žade. However I ...

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 ...
