  • The nature of Good and Evil

    Last week I wrote on the nature of Wisdom (as far as I could see it) and I liked a lot of the ideas I figured out. I thought, then, that I would look at the ideas of ‘Good’ and ‘Evil’ this week and see what else I could come up with. Of course, I won’t be doing this alone; I will invoke the help of Milton, Tolkien and Dante to assist me as I discuss the ideas of the good/evil dichotomy.

  • The nature of wisdom

    I used to think I had a pretty good grasp on the Bible. The past few years, however, as I’ve opened myself up to more and more ideas, I’ve come to realise just how close-minded about it I once was.

  • Made to love

    “… already my desire and my will were being turned like a wheel, all at one speed, by the love which moves the sun and other stars.” – Dante Alighieri (Paradiso)

  • Watch the weather

    Look to the sky! Quick, what is it saying?! Do you need to rug up with your thickest jacket and make a steaming cup of tea, or do you need to whack on your favourite boardies and enjoy some cool water?

  • Win people, not arguments

    I can be argumentative. Seriously. I am often more inclined to fight for a point to be understood than I am to encourage my friends. Not because I like being right – at least I hope not – I simply hate the thought of people being wrong or misinformed. It genuinely irritates me when someone isn’t everything I know they can be and they aren’t trying to reach their full potential. I believe we can be better.

  • I see…

    “I see a beautiful city and a brilliant people rising from this abyss. I see the lives for which I lay down my life, peaceful, useful, prosperous and happy… I see that I hold a sanctuary in their hearts, and in the hearts of their descendants, generations hence… It is a far, far better thing that I do, than I have ever done; it is a far, far better rest that I go to than I have ever known.”

  • Everything you do matters

    Last time I wrote I discussed the idea of aiming ourselves. That what we’re looking towards determines how we take information and how we organise our lives. This month that has been on my mind, as well as the importance of considering the cost of every choice we make.

  • Where we’re going

    Think about the last time you went to the cinema. You went about the business of getting a ticket, maybe got some food, then found your seat. Now, from the time of watching the movie, what do you actually remember?

  • New Year, Same Mission

    It’s always at this time of the year that we start to make new commitments. We tell ourselves that THIS TIME we’ll stick to it. That gym membership is going to last this time, this year is the year I finally learn the guitar, and I’m going to read so many more books.

  • The ones who knock

    Well, friends, it’s getting to that time of year. Christmas is happening, carols play 24/7, and for those of us that work, those holidays are starting to look very appealing.
