Costs of a growth economy

“Meanwhile, our attempt to maintain a “growth economy” in a measurably diminishing world is playing the devil with our traditional (and admirable) moral code, which our most prominent politicians now put to public use mainly to paint over our immoral behavior. We make war, we are told, for the love of peace. We subvert ourContinue reading “Costs of a growth economy”

Prayer for Healing

My prayer for 2022 is that this year will be the year of healing. I am not only praying for this, but I will be working towards this because I know that healing can only happen when we return to foundational truths and we practice these basic truths over and over in thought, word andContinue reading “Prayer for Healing”

Consuming to our doom

Yesterday, I listened to a pretty terrifying but informative podcast on Joe Rogan with Tristan Harris. https://open.spotify.com/episode/2LNwwgJqOMKHOqdvwmLxqd?si=CXSXco8CSvyRcHeERtyITA Say what you will about Joe Rogan, at least he has created the space for people to speak about issues who are not being given any airtime on mass media platforms. I don’t know if you remember butContinue reading “Consuming to our doom”

Clowns, Crowds-Facebook

As I was debating my participation on Facebook and what seems like the biggest waste of time, energy and brain cells, and how I have tried for 7 years to prick the spirits, minds and hearts of a faceless crowd, I thought about Søren Kierkegaard’s quote. “A fire broke out backstage in a theatre. TheContinue reading “Clowns, Crowds-Facebook”

Only truth can set us free

Healing begins when, in the face of our own darkness, we recognize our helplessness and surrender our need for control… we face what is, and we ask for mercy. Henri Nouwen All you have to do is write one true sentence. Write the truest sentence that you know. Ernest Hemingway If you do not tellContinue reading “Only truth can set us free”

Search for Truth

As we open our eyes to a new day, may we also create a space in ourselves, in our day and in our lives to receive Truth, to be Truth, to feel Truth, to know Truth, to practice Truth and to give Truth. But “What is Truth?” Isn’t this ultimately the question that we allContinue reading “Search for Truth”

Beware user of the social media gods

Social media platforms are now in the business of curating what they believe is right and wrong based on their fragmented understanding (aka philosophy) of right and wrong, truth and lies. (I don’t really blame them…I personally hate weight loss ads, diets and shaming people) but what this means… is that these social media platformsContinue reading “Beware user of the social media gods”

July 4

On Freedom: “The truth will set you free. But not until it is finished with you.”― David Foster Wallace, Infinite Jest “People demand freedom of speech as a compensation for the freedom of thought which they seldom use.”― Søren Kierkegaard “Most people do not really want freedom, because freedom involves responsibility, and most people areContinue reading “July 4”

Witness of Truth

What is a witness to the truth? “A witness to the truth is a man who in poverty witnesses to the truth—in poverty, in lowliness, in abasement, and so is unappreciated, hated, abhorred, and then derided, insulted, mocked—his daily bread perhaps he did not always have, so poor was he, but the daily bread ofContinue reading “Witness of Truth”
