Time to Say Goodbye to "Dudes"
Males of almost any age are referred to as "dudes" these days. I don't much like the word. It smacks of an unnaturally extended adolescence. What comes to my mind when I hear the term is a shallow parody of a grown up man. The guy who smirks at women, tells dirty jokes, smacks another guy in the ass with a wet towel. But most men are not dudes. They are poets as well as warriors, dreamers and lovers.

A Social Truth That Can Set You Socially Free
LOOKING into his eyes, I saw it. He is a confident, mature young man; a leader comfortable in himself. No real visible fear in him.

Letting Go and Starting Afresh
How often do we hold onto dead relationships, jobs and situations - always hoping that they will change, when in fact we should be thanking them for the learning, letting go and walking away - dashing off to embrace new relationships and learning.

Holding onto the past not only keeps us in a painful state, but it stunts our growth - both physically and spiritually.

A few days after my father passed away in august 2011, I went to Ibiza for just under two weeks. At the time I was in two minds about going away: part of me felt I should stay at home, and another part of me felt that it would be good for me to get away.

Is Invasion a Subtle Act of War?
The many faces of invasion and why we have to be ever watchful so as not to be on either side of the fence - the invader or the invaded. Whenever I hear the word invasion, what immediately comes to mind is one country invading another. We have ultimately learned that the reasons we are given for the invasion are rarely the whole story. It is difficult to separate invasion into different categories, because each one tends to bleed into the other. Physical invasion can lead to mental invasion and to spiritual invasion and so on. Invasion is insidious!
