Confront your fear
March 13, 2020

Some fears are tangible and realistic, such as fear of fire, snakes and scorpions. Because we fear these, we tend to take precautions, which is healthy. What is not healthy is when we are debilitated by an illogical fear. Fear of speaking in public, fear of flying, fear of success, fear of failure, are all illogical fears. Out of fear a person may never take a flight. Many are afraid to try someth...

Dare to Dream
February 21, 2020

There are two kinds of dreams. One is the dream you have at night as you sleep. This dream is concocted by the unruly mind. What you see, hear, taste, touch, smell and think during the day ends up appearing in your dreams at night, oftentimes in a very warped fashion. You should not attach any importance to such dreams, or waste time trying to interpret them. ...

All are the same
