Who Am I Buying This For?

Sadly, we live in a world where social status is everything. The more popular the brand of clothes we wear and the higher the price tag that is attached to them the better. People will even go to the extent of burying themselves in heaps of debt in order to improve their social image – […]

The Rightful Owner

Are you the job you work at? Are you the shoes you wear? Are you the money you earn? Are you anything and everything but yourself? If you’re struggling to make sense of who you are, perhaps now is a good time to look around your home at the material items you possess… The drawer […]

Goodbye, Social Media

Yesterday, I roamed the countryside for several hours with the aim of silencing a few voices in my head. The voices that speak to me when I’m alone. The voices that speak to me when I’m in a crowd. The voices that never allow my real inner voice to have its say. These voices, just […]

All The Small Things

The shoes you wear, the bag you carry, the car you drive. Soon they won’t mean much, soon they won’t be enough, soon they will need upgrading. You shop tirelessly around the clock and spend your money unwisely on meaningless bits of stuff in the hope that one day they will bring you happiness, but […]

The Gift of Study

This year, and all of the years ongoing, when a time of celebration nears; a birthday, a wedding, a death, Christmas, New Years – prepare to show your support differently. Dismiss the material gifts in which we have been brought up to believe to be the most thoughtful of gifts by the giver and the […]

When Death Presses

As I hold this book gently in the palm of my hands (Many Lives, Many Masters by Dr. Brian Weiss), having thoughtfully read it multiple times from front to back, any fear of death that I may have previously been clutching on to has now drastically diminished – almost completely banished. There is no need […]

The War Against Materialism

One year ago, I finally won my battle against materialism. Prior to this well-fought victory, following a few successful years in business, I had become someone that I never thought I would ever become – and someone that I wished I would never become; a greedy and selfish, materialistic and egotistical individual. Money does not […]
