Inner Happiness

Happiness is quite difficult to define, yet, most people are aware of whether they are happy or not. Certainly happiness is not pleasure, which is fleeting: parties, receiving a gift, a day on the beach, or, as bidden by myths of the consumerist world, the accumulation of things that we run after to recreate imagined…

Consider yourself to be God’s property

Creating a healthy mind and body

In spirituality we say that there are three things which affect your longevity: hurry, worry and curry. These are three bad habits that can ruin a person’s good health. I think worry is the worst one as it is the hardest to control. A man leaves his house at 7.15 every morning to get to…

Last week was the memorial of the 7/7 terror bombings in London 2005. It’s been 10 years since the awfully day. It was the day after London won its bid to host the 2012 Olympic Games; such a contrast of joy and pain. Do you remember where you were 10 years ago? Do you remember…

Freedom

Everyone wants freedom. Would you say it was fair to say that? There are many varieties of freedom. There are plenty of opinions as to exactly what freedom entails. Freedom of speech.

Retreat

Retreat – the act of moving back or withdrawing.
