Invisible Broadcast

In an almost paranormal way, one’s genuine and conscious appreciation of others, devoid of any impurity, has an immediate effect on the people around us.

It is an invisible broadcast one gives out, a vibe that one is vibrating with, an aura that glows like a light bulb for all to see.

The Wealth Of Kindness

Capitalism has made us only understand one kind of wealth, as it is only concerned with the ‘monetary’ economy.

Kindness and empathy towards others produce a different kind of wealth, which benefits everyone. Indifferences are quelled, and goodwill, warmth and support are produced.

Clearing the mental desktop

There is a way to re-organize your unresolved thoughts and separate the important from the messy mental pile. In the quiet of the day, you sit down with a pencil and paper and ask yourself three questions.

  • What am I anxious about?
  • What am I upset about, and with whom?
  • What am I currently feeling excited or ambitious about?
Fragments provide clues

When you ask what you're anxious about, you may not have a clear answer. You may have fragments of responses that may not make much sense by itself. For example, "I am anxious about floorboards. Book mess."

Record these answers as they will give a hint about the main sore points in the back of your mind.
