Day 1057: Are Our Children the Future

Is it fair to place the responsibility of creating a better future squarely upon the shoulders of our future generations? Is it fair for us to sit back and plead incapacity, expecting our children to make all the changes that we are unwilling to make? What will our children create if they are learning only from our current examples of individualism, greed, selfishness, willingness to abuse and exploit for personal gain, indebting each other in more ways than financially..?

Day 1056: We Can, But Don't

The technology to manufacture cars with lower C02 emissions is here, it's available and its being used in the manufacturing of cars in first world countries, but cars that are manufactured for third world countries (like South Africa) are YEARS behind in this technology - even though they're made at the same places. Why does this happen? Why do we willingly choose the more destructive options, rather than simply making all new cars with the best possible technology?

Day 1055: I Want What You Have

Sometimes we see the nice things that other people have, that we can't have, and we want it desperately. Sometimes we feel jealous, envious, or even resentment towards them. What does this say about us?

Day 1054: Do Poor People Deserve Happiness

Do you have a little thought within you when you see a beggar smiling that they must be doing OK in their life to be so happy? Do you feel less guilt if you see a happy homeless person?

Day 1053: Missed a Moment

Sometimes we miss moments and make silly mistakes. Could those mistakes have been avoided?

Day 1052: Confessions of a Gamer

I grew up playing computer games. I played with my dad, and then with my friends and boyfriends. I played games alone. I played all sorts of games - violent games, god sim games, strategy games, fantasy games. None of this made me a lazy or violent person. I share some of my history as well as perspectives into the nature of gaming and why it didn't change who I was.

Day 1051: Every Day Should be Earth Day

Why do we only celebrate and respect the Earth one day a year? The Earth gives us life unconditionally, we should be giving back equally.

Day 1050: Do Emotional Reactions Contribute to Mental Illness?

Have you ever wondered if the thoughts and emotional turmoil within us could contribute to the development of mental illness? Is it possible that the only reason mental illnesses exist, is that we are so out of touch with seeing ourselves, seeing our experiences and being able to change them? Is this simple lack of understanding part of the reason for mental illnesses manifesting?

Day 1049: Why Would You do That

Sometimes people do things that make you go WTF. Sometimes people do things that you just can't wrap your head around. It seems to have no logic. What happens when you take a step back and look into who they were and what their motivations were in that moment?

Day 1048: Should You Have Kids

How do you know if you are ready to have kids? What will the world that your child grows up in be like? Will you be able to effectively prepare a child for the future that will await them?

Day 1047: Manifesting Mannerisms

Sometimes we develop subconscious physical mannerisms that we don't realise we have until someone points it out. Often these manifestations come from not knowing how to deal with some part of ourselves or our lives, so we just push down that part, deep inside ourselves. Unfortunately, it can't just disappear - often it will come to the surface in unexpected ways, like an unusual and frequent head movement (like a tick) while speaking.

Day 1046: Frequently Inaccurate First Impressions

Why are our first impressions of new people or things often so inaccurate? Why do we rely so heavily on our judgements and perceptions, rather than on simply seeing what's in front of us?

Day 1045: Do You Need a Holiday?

Do you feel the need to escape from your life? Do you feel like a holiday will make everything better? Why have we created our lives in such a way that we feel we need to escape from them? Can we change this experience within ourselves?

Day 1043: Who Pays the Price for our Choices

Taking responsibility for an animal is not something to do on a whim - it is far too common that animals are neglected, abandoned and worse simply because a human didn't consider well enough the implications involved in looking after a pet. Who pays the price for our actions and choices? Who must live with the consequences of our mistakes and ill-planned ventures? Always the animals.

Day 1044: Bow Down to Authority

Why do we automatically believe what figures of authority say, including packaging on labels of well known brands? Why do we believe the labeling on products that proclaim to be "the best!" and "the healthiest option" without actually investigating the contents of the product?

Day 1042: The Potential in Competition

The way we use and live competition serves only to divide us - what if we could change the way we live it so that it brings us together and strengthens us?

Day 1040: The Problem with Positivity

Does positive thinking erase everything that is negative? What happens to the reality of the inherently negative human experiences, fueled by the mind?

Day 1039: Contradictory Nature of Humanity

There are very few people who are consistent. We have reached a sort of acceptance of the tendency for people to be dishonest, calling it a part of human nature, or saying that it's just the way it is. Is this contradictory nature inevitable? Can we support ourselves and others to change?

Day 1038: The Ultimate Choice

Do you remember your very first choice - the choice that put you in you body, family and life? No. Is that choice then valid at all? Is it fair to state that we are not responsible for the life choices of others, that they chose those lives for themselves and so must face the consequences thereof?

Day 1037: Relationship Success Support: Looking for a Sugar Daddy

What is behind the phenomenon of young girls and women looking for rich older men to create relationships with? With the creation of sugar daddy match making sites, what drives people to use these methods to seek out these specific relationship arrangements? How does physical appearance and the concept of beauty contribute to this phenomenon?

Day 1036: Beyond You or I

Knowing what it is like to live in absolute poverty is beyond what you or I can imagine. We do not know what it is like to do what so many people do just to be able to survive. We cannot know. But what we DO know is that it is unacceptable. We have created a world system in which the lifestyles the lucky enjoy are built on the backs of the unlucky.

Day 1035: Relationship Personality

Have you noticed how most people tend to change when they start a relationship? Suddenly they like all sorts of things that they barely thought about before. When the relationship ends, so do those interests. How can we share things with our partners without feeling the need to change ourselves for them?

Day 1034: A Moment of Mourning

Take a moment to mourn for life. Take a moment to consider and feel the truly horrific lives that so many beings live. Take a moment to recognise how each of us has been a part of the creation of the world system as it is. Take a moment to remember why change is needed. Take a moment to remember why we must continue to push past our own limits in service of creating a better life for all.

Day 1033: Give up, Let go

Sometimes, people hurt other people. Sometimes people do selfish things. Sometimes, we get hurt. Sometimes we must give up hope and let go of the people in our lives who no longer contribute to the creation of supportive relationships and living. Sometimes we must allow people to continue their path, without us, so that maybe one day they may reach that point of self honesty and re-enter our lives so that we may develop a new relationship.

Day 1032: The Meek and the Mild

The meek shall inherit the Earth, or so it's said. The way things are now, it's a dog eat dog world - if you're not strong enough to survive it, well then tough luck. Our society almost expects you to ignore those who are unable to help themselves - but what now if you can see that supporting where, when and who you are able to is actually what is best and has the potential to create a world that you would want your child to be a part of and thrive in? Be courageous enough to go against the grain of a harsh human-dominated world.

Day 1031: What will you Regret More

When you are developing a new routine for yourself such as exercising daily and you are finding it difficult to get through really not feeling like doing it, ask yourself this one question: what will you regret more - doing it or not doing it?

Day 1030: Give as You Would Like to Receive

An eye for an eye makes the world blind - and yet that is how we are all living. We demand that the scales of every single interaction are balanced, that everything is fair. But is the way that we are living and understanding the words 'balance' and 'fair' actually best? Are we actually perpetuating the debt-based system in the way that we demand repayment of personal debts, slights, scores, favours, etc?
