It’s a strange thing, exploring your own mind. You uncover truths about yourself you should never share, mainly because you sound like a maniac. Or a wise, spiritual leader, because sometimes it’s hard to tell the difference. Speaking of things that are tough to distinguish, and everything else I just said… Have you ever noticed
Many people, me included, talk about the benefits of mindfulness. Of all the meditation disciplines out there, it’s probably the best one to start with. There are more powerful ones, sure, but mindfulness is a core skill. Besides, it has plenty of benefits on its own. But… What if mindfulness isn’t the answer? What if
Technological weapons attack our minds every day… and we welcome it. You don’t have to be a victim, though – learn to defend yourself in minutes. A thought that sometimes circles my mind: it is ridiculously easy to get a sample of someone’s DNA. You leave actual fingerprints everywhere but if you’re paranoid, or cold,
Recent experience: I caught a taxi from the airport to a pub. I was meeting mates for lunch and I was running late, so I splurged on the faster option.

Here’s a quote I stumbled clumsily into while casually reading: We often think when we have completed our study of One, we know all about Two because Two is One and One. We forget that we still have to make a study of “and.” – Sir Arthur Eddington There’s so much trite garbage flying around
Have you noticed how time seems to be speeding up? The older you get, the worse it seems. As a child, summer would last for what felt like years. As an adult, you blink and a month disappears. Case in point: 2018 is nearly over already. But here’s the thing… That’s not normal. Time is
I’m travelling and I forgot to schedule some posts. Oops! That means nothing today and tomorrow’s will be late. Maybe even a day late. I’ll make up the numbers. More posts next week to compensate for this dearth of articles. (I only post once a day. There’s no excuse for this unbearable delay…) Anyway, focusing
Here’s a nice side effect for you. Imagine you’re reorganising your thoughts from the ground up. You are releasing old emotions and scars from your childhood.
