FREEDOM – THE CHOICE IS OURS…..

FREEDOM – THE CHOICE IS OURS…..

I know, I know….. I harp on about freedom. Freedom to think, freedom to decide, freedom to speak, freedom to move. Do you want your freedoms to be controlled?  I know that some people think that it is worth sacrificing one’s freedom in pursuit of safety. Now we have to contend with the new fear of mis, dis, mal information. It’s always been there, but now it has become an issue. Why? I’m not sure that the folks that agree…

TODAYS MODERN WORLD

TODAYS MODERN WORLD

I think it is safe to say that life has never been better. Sure, there are still people starving and living in poverty. There is still homelessness, addictions, mental illness and physical ill health. There are still wars happening. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MgXdfyVZBO0&t=2s) An overall glance at todays world. The middle class is/was larger than ever before.  The poverty line is/was shrinking and more and more people are/were becoming part of the middle class.  We have not, “yet”, had another world war. Life…

Truth and Freedom – part two

Truth and Freedom – part two

I don’t really know where to start with this discussion…..  But I believe 100% we need to have a discussion on where we are being pushed and “nudged” to. Equally important is to start imagining what kind of world we want to create; what kind of world do we want to live in and to leave our children and grandchildren with? This globe belongs to 8 +/- billion inspiring, unique individuals and we all have an “equal” say in the…

TRUTH AND FREEDOM – part one

TRUTH AND FREEDOM – part one

“United we Stand, Divided we Fall” (Aesop) This wise quote has never been truer…….  Hello, I thought I would come back and share some thoughts. I’m not sure why I stopped writing, maybe because it felt like I was talking to myself ; no one was responding. The idea here is to have a conversation, in particular in today’s world. I’m sure you can see that there are a lot of very strange things happening.  Naturally I don’t know what…

Freedom – A vision from a wide-angle lens

Freedom – A vision from a wide-angle lens

Our unique individual birthright – Freedom It seems there is a battle raging in some countries right now, and it’s all about freedom.  What is freedom? My understanding is it’s the ability to be in control of your own life. To be 100% responsible for every thought, decision and action you make and take. How can this work with 8+ billion “unique” people living on Planet Earth? How can this work when we have reached a state of believing we…

FREEDOM – BORN TO BE FREE

FREEDOM – BORN TO BE FREE

Freedom is the oxygen of the soul. (Moshe Dayan) Maybe it was going through the madness of Covid that really made it clear to me the importance of freedom and what freedom really is. We talk about our God-given right to be free, and this I believe is very true. But what is freedom? What does freedom really look like? Sure, having the freedom to voice our opinions, and freedom to choose what we do with our lives, and the…

“Colonialism is to be blamed for climate change”

“Colonialism is to be blamed for climate change”

Economic Modern-day culture, colonialism and climate change I read something yesterday on how Colonialism is to be blamed for climate change. In today’s economic modern-day culture, I wonder if that is completely true. I admit I didn’t finish reading the article as it seemed to be spouting off the same old typical blame of white people being responsible for all the world’s problems. But it did make me think a bit about this, so I am going to see where…

Seeing reality from a different angle

Seeing reality from a different angle

Seeing from above rather than within. Seeing the larger picture in situations, I’ve come to realize is my natural tendency; I tend to see the long-term consequences. Some people are naturally detail-oriented; it seems I’m more far-sighted. This can get me into heated debates as many people don’t understand or grasp what I am seeing. It’s not that I’m claiming anything, it’s just a perspective, a vision; it’s “a seeing” from a different angle. It feels like I’m up above…

Our Trauma World.

Our Trauma World.

“The Earth is not just our environment, the Earth is our Mother” (Dalai Lama) “My Perception, My Truth“. I wonder if we are facing a world of trauma; I also wonder if trauma, with its many guises and appearances, is a growing occurrence affecting all of life. These are my understandings, my perceptions, my sense of things, my experiences; my truth. I want to make it clear that I am not claiming to know “the truth”. All I have is what…

A question-Are we in control of our civilization?

A question-Are we in control of our civilization?

“Peace cannot be kept by force. It can only be achieved by understanding”. (Albert Einstein) Do we know where civilization is going? Do we ever think about what kind of civilization we would like to create here on Earth? What long-term plans have been put into place to try and build a global existence of peace, harmony and balance for all? Is this something we even think about? If so, how do we go about this? There are 7+ billion…
