Rise and shine

Every morning, the sun rises, casting its golden light across the world. It is a daily miracle, often taken for granted, yet it holds immense power to inspire and rejuvenate our spirits.

Your Siren song

In Homer’s epic poem Oddysey, the Sirens are known for their enchanting and irresistibly seductive voices that attract sailors towards them. However, beyond their portrayal as mythical temptresses, there is a valuable lesson to learn from these captivating beings.

An idle mind is the devil’s playground

This proverb highlights the importance of keeping our minds active, purposeful, and directed, as they can easily become vulnerable when left to wander.

Idleness is a missed opportunity, like a blank canvas waiting for an artist to create something beautiful or a seed waiting for fertile soil to grow.

Red moon

Looking up at a red Moon casting the rare crimson glow upon the night sky reminds us of the impermanence of all things and the wisdom inherent in nature’s cycles.

A Cosmic Perspective

The cosmic perspective involves viewing the world from a distance and visualising oneself as a small part of the vast universe. It is a way to gain insight into the insignificance of personal problems and concerns and better understand life’s challenges.

Let Go

Great and beautiful changes are on the horizon but they come with letting go of those that can not come with you. Let go, no matter how difficult it may seem, so that you can move forward.

The Blindness Within

The greatest blindness is not one of the eyes but of the mind. So warns the ancient Stoic philosopher Seneca in his moral teachings. He speaks of an inner darkness that afflicts those enslaved to their passions and desires — a self-imposed “blindness of the mind” that clouds vision and obstructs the path to truth and virtue.

Roses are red, violets are blue

Poetry has a special way of bringing us closer together by highlighting the beautiful connections that exist between all aspects of life. Love, like nature, is ever-changing yet eternal; it is a force that exceeds time and space to unite hearts and souls through shared experiences and emotions.

The Candid Mirror

He stands before the mirror, eye to eye with his reflection. At first, he sees the surface details — the wrinkles on his forehead and the slight sagging of his jowls that seem to become more prominent with each passing year. Who is this man?

Unfulfilled and Discontented

We live in a world where many people believe that the key to happiness lies in external pleasures and material possessions. However, no matter how much we strive to attain these things, we often find ourselves feeling unfulfilled and discontented.

The Red Queen’s Wisdom

In a world where standing still is forbidden, every step forward holds significance, and success awaits those bold enough to charge ahead. In the words of Wonderland’s Red Queen, “In my kingdom, you have to run as fast as you can just to stay in the same place. No one standing still can succeed, no matter how well constituted.”

Endless hope and care to give

Once upon a time, in a troubled world filled with uncertainty and challenges, there existed a deep belief contained within the words “Endless hope and care to give.” It wasn’t just a collection of words; it was a powerful expression that echoed the core of boundless optimism and compassion.

The Extraordinary Awaits

Life is the canvas, and your mind is the palette of endless colours. Harness its artistry to compose a masterpiece that reflects your resilience, purpose, and boundless potential.

Bridging Divides through Connection

“Why is it that, as a culture, we are more comfortable seeing two men holding guns than holding hands?” This poignant inquiry serves as the muse for an artwork that surpasses the canvas, delving into the complexities of human connection amidst the backdrop of conflict.

One Thousand Questions

“Ask, and you will receive. Seek, and you will find.” This age-old wisdom, often deemed miraculous and divine, resonates deeply with how our thoughts work.
