Enlightenment, conflicting desires and emotional growth

We all have conflicting desires. We all sometimes have desires or emotions that may go against our core beliefs or highest held ideals. We’re all hypocrites. At least in thought, if not in action. The sooner we accept that about ourselves and each other the sooner we can evolve as individuals and therefore as a […]

All Good In the Pixie Hood – Love lessons, balance and wisdom

I had a couple of thoughts that came up in conversation an meditation recently that I felt inspired to share. We learn lessons from the past. I think it’s natural to be aware of our fears and it’s natural to avoid things that have hurt us in the past. BUT one of the lessons I […]

Humans – accidental hypocrites with cognitive dissonance? Not if we accept unity

The sooner we can accept that we can want two contradictory things at the same time the saner and happier we’ll be. People with no morals have less cognitive dysfunction in this area because, I assume, they rarely worry about wanting things that they shouldn’t. But nice people, we’re often in denial. Like real musicians […]

A philosophical review of the 2016 US Election – or “Grab ’em by the pussy” said the President of the USA. Wow. (But Hillary’s a corrupt monster so it was Godzilla vs Mothra from the start)

“Grab ’em by the pussy” said the President of the USA. Wow. (But Hillary’s a corrupt monster so it was Godzilla vs Mothra from the start)   Election results. Business as usual. We have always been ruled by racist, sexist thieves and liars. It’s that way in England too, we’ve just been a little more […]

Quan Yin whispers and Ganesh shouts (at an insomniac at 2 in the morning)

Can’t sleep? Keep thinking about Quan Yin and Ganesh? Ill? Find yourself reading about Quan Yins origin story and thinking about the Ganesh wall hanging you’ve been sleeping on? Still can’t sleep at 1am cos you’re anxious about dentists, and presidential elections, and rent, and the health of loved ones? Still can’t sleep by 2am? […]

I’m thinking about starting a religion. Again.

  I’m thinking about starting a religion. Again. (I didn’t start one before, I just thought about starting one before…) When I thought about it before it was because I wanted something without dogma and rules but a framework for my spiritual preferences, namely a reverence for love and nature. Also because it may have […]

Am I just ‘over’ politics? Kinda. For now (think of a catchier title later. Maybe.)

“write inebriated, edit sober” {paraphrasing?} I’m not sure if I’m cynical about politics, or frustrated, or fed up, or if I’m just more at ease and therefore don’t feel like everybody’s got to agree with me anymore. Maybe a little bit of all of the above. I was recently advised that cynicism can be a […]

Conflicting Emotions, anger, forgiveness and the age old question – Who Am I?

It’s been alot of conflicting emotions recently. Like I want to be honest but I don’t want to hurt anybody’s feelings, I want money but I want free time, I want friends but I don’t feel like socialising, I want empathy for my anxiety but I don’t want to be considered pathetic, I want to […]
