I always find it interesting the various strategies people use to achieve success at whatever they’re doing. When the Team GB athlete was interviewed about his performance in the men’s 110 metres hurdles final at the Olympics (in which he came fourth), he said because he hadn’t expected to get to the final, he treated the semi-final as his […]

I believe all problems that humanity has ever dreamed up or will ever dream up have already been resolved.   All needs have already been met.  All desires have already been fulfilled.  To receive them in the here and now,  it’s important to thank the One/God for what has already been done.  Here’s one example, which […]

While I was on the computer, I started feeling intense period pain. Fortunately, I was at home so I went to lie down. Although I was feeling tense, I told myself I was feeling relaxed and my body relaxed. Within a few minutes I was back on the computer. After I shared my experience with […]

A few days ago when I noticed a fat pimple on my face, I was so tempted to squeeze it but I decided to leave it alone.  I figured it will go away of its own accord and I gave it no further thought.  Today, I noticed the pimple has gone.  A few months ago, I […]

On last night’s Dancing on Ice (the reality TV show where celebrity skaters are paired off with professional ice skaters and compete against each other), a judge awarded a celebrity skater 9.5 out of a possible 10 for her performance. Last week that same judge gave her 6.5, which the other judges disagreed with. In […]

Before I went to bed, I noticed my stomach was so bloated I looked several months pregnant and I felt really uncomfortable. I decided to do something about it so I thought: “God, this is your body, un-bloat it now!” As I lay in bed, I could feel my stomach slowly reducing in size in […]

A few weeks back, when I noticed information on the Internet for a herbal product that I thought my mother would be interested in, I brought the information to her attention. After she read about the product, she decided to place an order. She soon received a confirmation email that her order had been received […]

“Lo, this only have I found, that God hath made man upright; but they have sought out many inventions.” ~~ Ecclesiastes 7: 29 In my response to a friend’s email, I commended her for standing on Truth when she was ill. By this I mean, despite appearances and what the doctors were telling her, she […]

I stopped off at the local supermarket for a few items my mother wanted. At first the bags felt OK to carry but then they got heavier. Then I thought to myself, why am I struggling when I can ask for help? “Thank you for carrying the bags for me!” The moment I had the […]

“Soul has infinite resources with which to bless mankind, and happiness would be more readily attained and would be more secure in our keeping, if sought in Soul.” Mary Baker Eddy I walk at least 40 miles a week. Because of all that walking, my boots wear out quite quickly. One pair I got from […]

It is the Season of Goodwill and people are bending over backwards to be nice and generous. I believe the ones who benefit the most from people’s “generosity” and “kindness” are businesses who make massive profits. As I see it, if you want to show your love and appreciation for people, why wait for a […]

In the UK, the House of Commons is the lower house of parliament where MPs (members of parliament) meet to pass new laws and debate and discuss political matters; and the House of Lords is the upper house of parliament where Lords meet to do the same. Members of the House of Commons are elected […]

When my mother told me a male friend was coming round to keep her company, I couldn’t resist teasing her. “Have fun, but don’t do what I wouldn’t do!” I said. “What’s that then?” mum chuckled. “I know what you old folks are like when you get together. Actually, you might be thinking of doing […]

The wonderful thing about having money is it buys me lots of time. When I’m not feeling well: I have time to make an appointment to see my doctor, healer or therapist, I have time to visit my doctor, healer or therapist, I have time to get to the pharmacist to buy my medication, I […]

I caught part of a TV documentary yesterday where they were discussing various allergies. One expert said the reason why people suffer from hay fever is because they are allergic to grass. Another woman, whose son is allergic to nuts, said she has to scrutinise everything she buys to ensure there are no nuts. Even […]

I’ve always believed in cutting out the “middle man” appearing as teachers, gurus, messiahs and masters and going straight to the Source, the God Presence in me. Here’s an example of my belief in every day life. Two weeks ago when I did my mother’s shopping, I bought a handwash which the supermarket was selling […]

With Truth, there is no compromise. In other words, something is either true or false, there is no in between. 2 + 2 = 4 – True 2 + 2 = 4.01 – False Another way to put it is: Truth is like a magnet that only picks up or attracts things that are magnetic […]

In the science fiction TV series Star Trek, Starfleet explorers from the Federation of Planets have a guiding principle they live by called the Prime Directive which prevents them from interfering with the development of other worlds and species. In other words, they don’t get involved with local politics. I believe one reason why the […]

While I was talking a walk by the canal, I noticed a man riding on his bicycle while instructing two girls rowing in a boat. As he had a higher vantage point than the two girls, he could guide them safely. He even reminded them when to look back. Since this man is not always […]

As I was walking by this particular park whose gates were now closed, I noticed several guys were trying to get into the park by leaping over the fence. I was reminded of a time when I almost got stuck in that same park. It was summer and I was taking a walk with a […]

6″: Therefore we are always confident, knowing that, whilst we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord: “7”: (For we walk by faith, not by sight:) “8”: We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord. 2 Corinthians […]

“God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.” Psalm 46: 1 Where there is a cause, there is always an effect. I have observed that at any moment I am either being the cause and in control of my life experiences or I am being the effect and at the whim […]

“In God’s eyes nothing is large or small. Were it not for His perfect nicety in constructing the tiny atom, could the skies wear the proud structures of Vega, Acturus? Distinctions of “important” and “unimportant” are surely unknown to the Lord, lest, for want of a pin, the cosmos collapse!” Autobiography of a Yogi by […]

I believe in the importance of being true to myself in every moment by doing what I love. How is it possible to continuously do what you love when there are things you sometimes have to do that you don’t particularly enjoy? Easy, just think about what you love. For instance, I recently attended my […]

I have observed life provides limitless opportunities for fun and laughter, sometimes in the most unlikely places. The other day I accompanied my mother to the hospital. At the waiting room, my mother chose where she wanted to sit and I sat next to her. There was an elderly lady sitting to my right. After […]

I believe the Universe is rather like an insurance policy. Insurance companies agree to cover policy holders in times of crisis. However, it’s up to the policy holders to not only claim what they are entitled to but to prove their entitlement. Don’t expect the insurance company to do it for you. In the same […]

When a friend and I got on the bus she looked at her watch and muttered a few times, “I’m going to be late!” As we were chatting she relaxed and stopped fretting. At one stop I noticed the driver was taking longer than usual to leave. I realised a passenger had tried to open […]

Mystics have shared their visions of a world where humans and animals live together in perfect harmony, but methinks there is a huge price to pay for this reality. As I was walking through a park I noticed this pigeon taking his evening constitutional ahead of me. As the pigeon was taking his time, I […]
