Inside Out – With A Little Help From Your Emotions
by Ignas Genys

I watched a cartoon the other day which surprisingly got me thinking, and even more so, wanting to write about it. The film was called “Inside Out”. It was about our emotions.

How much more could you achieve with a quiet mind?
by Leonie Morris

“A quiet mind is able to hear intuition over fear”

Ever wondered why we have our ‘eureka’ moments when we least expect them?

In the shower, in a dream, after a peaceful walk?

The information age has brought many great benefits … it has also brought a plague of ‘busy minds’ and ‘fuzzy thinking’.

Even on the bad days ... there is a bright side
by Leonie Morris

Some days don't always look like the best

You wake up with a stiff neck
You have sad conversations
Cross words
You're late
Energy ebbs and everything feels like an up hill struggle
Things just don't go your way

But you know what .

Why do we find saying 'No' ... so hard?
by Leonie Morris

I am a creature of habit. My whole life has been an education in making others happy, in pleasing people ... and mostly that's fine. Making others happy gives me happy thoughts too.

This cycle means I am a 'yes' girl.

I want to sing the praise of a 3 star review.

You have an abundant life. Didn’t you know? You do. We all do, actually. People tend to treat abundance as a goal, a state to get to. However we are actually born abundant. We are born into a world where the natural law is abundance.

Are you stuck in a life that you don’t live and want to change but have no idea of how you can do that? Believe me I know it, I’ve been there. The world seems limited, you feel completely powerless and the biggest challenge is that when we are there, it is is so easy to play our victim role and believe we cannot change our lives.

Resolving dilemmas by changing your way of looking
by Dave Bevan

I’m going to describe a scenario that I imagine, with minor adjustments, will be familiar to more or less everyone. Let’s say that you have promised a family member that you will spend the weekend with them, even though you are pretty sure that it will be no fun at all.

I Am You
by Serene Martin

So much of pain exists in this world because of the sense of separation we feel between us and everything else. This one was written to inspire us to feel connected .

I am the taste of coffee on your tongue and the glass which holds it against your lips
I am the rage of the storm and the calm of its eye
I am the blade of the knife and the energy with which it cuts
I am the wetness of raindrops and the burn of cigars
I am the green of the grass and the transparency of air
I am the curve of your smile and the depth of your remorse
I am your friend and the friend of your enemy
I am what I am and I am you.
