The Weight of the World

The Weight of the World   The world is in a really sad state of affairs. Everywhere I look, I see, hear and read things which are really so sad. One brother blames another brother. One calls out another, when there is already a speck in his eye. Lives are destroyed. When if ever will this end? Even sadder the truth that a lot of these people should know better. Don’t they realise in their well meaning stances they are exacerbating world crisis? The world is in a heightened state… I don’t know if you feel it but I do. Sticks and stones may break my bones but names WILL still hurt me… You know that feeling? When you don’t think there is anything wrong but then you notice the tension in your shoulders. I mean check yourself now? Do you need to consciously relax your shoulders from the weight…

Do you misunderstand me?

Do you misunderstand me? Misunderstandings are so common… Half the time we probably don’t even realise when someone misunderstands us . And how often do we misunderstand other people?

Misunderstandings have created all kinds of told and untold damage in people’s lives… but how will we ever realise not to take part in misunderstandings?

Things have been revealing themselves as shame and I have started to see a pattern emerging in me and many people around me. How many of our reactions and responses are hopes and dreams are coloured by shame… and the shame is not just over things that we ourselves have done. I have been reminded lately of shames connected with family and parents… the same in every family really and often how they affect us…

Motivators…

“In life you need either inspiration or desperation.” ~Tony Robbins~ What is your motivating factor? I think that both inspiration and desperation are my motivators… Hopefully more often than not it will be inspiration that will motivate me to do what I need to do, say what I need to say and be what I need to be. Inspiration I receive from so many avenues, the greatest being God, the ultimate creator, speaking such beauty and intricacy into being and uncovering such amazing things around us in the world and I am sure there are still yet many wonders yet covered and yet to be revealed in the world. I am inspired by His love, His gift, His generosity, His sacrifice and His example to be the best I can be and be as much like him as I can. Desperation is also a factor in my life and often…
