Optimistic Thinking versus Fantasy

By | 2015-05-30T18:09:44+00:00 February 19th, 2015|GENERAL|

Successful people dream up a vision. From this, they can create a goal towards which they aspire. But, in order to turn the vision into reality, the dreaming - or fantasising - must stop. A more dynamic mindset is required. Fantasies of success tend to lead to inactivity, and so low performance. Positive expectation, on [...]

Healing Neurosis

By | 2015-05-30T18:12:33+00:00 February 2nd, 2015|GENERAL|

It was the belief of Carl Jung, that our neuroses were in direct proportion to our inability to face our emotional pain. It follows that, in order to heal and find peace, we need to open our hearts to the reality of our lives; to face our hurt with acceptance and compassion. And doing this [...]

Relationships: conflict as perspective

By | 2014-08-04T15:33:54+00:00 March 8th, 2014|Relationships|

I have been struck over the years how conflict in a relationship always comes down to the one thing: an unwillingness for each person to step into the other's shoes, to really feel what it may be like to live their life, to be in the relationship from their perspective. We become attached to our [...]

Getting a diagnosis of a serious illness can be a traumatic experience. And trauma has its own health risks.

By | 2014-08-04T15:31:51+00:00 January 19th, 2014|Anxiety, GENERAL|

So much of our lives can be spent re-living the past, or in the mists of the future that we don't really enjoy where we are. As children, we long to be more grown-up, and then we think things will be better once we've finished all that study and all those exams, when we have [...]

STORY OF THE GOLDEN BUDDHA – the inner being

By | 2014-06-30T12:53:12+00:00 November 11th, 2013|GENERAL|

I heard this lovely story from Tara Brach: In the hall of a monastery, was a huge Buddha statue. It wan’t particularly attractive, as it was only made of clay, but the monks cared for it and did their best to show it off by painting it. However, about ten years ago, it was exceptionally [...]
