Authentic Is As Authentic Thinks

August 2021 According to C.S. Lewis, the lay theologian author of The Chronicles of Narnia, ‘We are what we believe we are.’ Heads up: in these challenging times, of course, it’s nice to dig around uplifting messages that might encourage us to move forward with love for our selves, love for others – and with

Authentic Is As Authentic Acts

Warning: ever since I embarked on this three-part fashion centred mind-meander, my darling partner, Myahr, has warned me to not come across ‘as an older woman out of touch with what it means to be a liberated ‘female’ in 2021.’ So, dear reader, hopefully, you won’t think that as you read on. But it’s true,

Happy Is As Happy Thinks

Brisbane – Australia – June 2021   “So, why don’t people feel happy?” asks Sadhvi Bhagawati Saraswati, P.H.D. (in psychology from Stanford), who has been featured on CNN, in the N.Y. Times and many other renowned news networks. In answer to her own question, she said, ‘Because our lives are clouded by our individual stuck

Neutral Observers – So, Who Are We Really?

Cont’d from The More we Change, The More We Stay The Same … ‘The privilege of a lifetime is to become who you truly are,’ said Carl Jung. And we could easily add, ‘The sooner that is achieved, the longer we enjoy living our authentic life.’ Bliss! But how to bring THAT on once we’ve

Our Hearts Go To Our Beloved Celebrities … And Back To Us

Very happy to see you back here, dear Reader 🙂 Wealth and fame, ever-increasing comfort, space and ‘freedom’ to come and go as we please … none are shields against insecurities, stress and depression. Personal freedom and peace can only come from within. We know it’s true. For those who have made it to a

Then As Now, Where Are We When It’s happening?

  August 2021 Inspired by Plato’s Allegory of the Cave (referenced in Happy Is As Happy Thinks), here is an idea for an allegory one might write well into in the 21st century. It would feature selected modern humans somehow permanently attached to their state-of-the-art, all senses tracking, standalone VR headsets. The ultimate intuitive, computer-generated,

Allure Or a Lure? To have it – or to be it, that is the question.

Brisbane – Australia – September 2021   Interpreted, of course, through the subjective lens of the Beholder, ‘allure’ is achieved by an interesting, original, attractive dress sense. That said, many will argue that fashion is about self-expression. I’ll risk suggesting, here, that fashion is the expression of a vision. It’s the 3-D realisation of entrepreneurs,

Un-Neutral observers Dictate Our Reality

    Within the context of this little mind-meander, I’ll suggest that our body is a one-of-a-kind, karmically engineered, nature-made, coherent and resilient entity. It is a part of humanity, the most remarkable collective planet Earth has ever birthed. And this is how we are intended to re-imagine ourselves. Fully clothed and only veiled by

We Don’t Break

Cont’d from Not Objects But Enablers, We Are Reality check: we don’t break by becoming more awake and more aware. We don’t break by making peace with our imperfect human self. We don’t break by actively accepting that everything that is happening to us and around us is really happening for us. We don’t break

What Are We Able We Do, Really?

My darling partner, Myahr, was right when she said that this mind-meander reads like a grab-bag of the ills of modern society. That’s exactly how it was intended. And, as you are reading through it, dear Reader, I would like to imagine you making a mental checklist of all the positives that you perceive as

Warriors We Are

Courage comes from our willingness to trust and be humble little blind mice in a maze. No idea in which direction lie the coveted morsels of cheese. No idea behind which are hidden the punishing electrical pulses.
