Untying the Knot

One thing I know for sure is that life is complex. We are complex. Of course the paradox is that amidst the complexity and confusion there is simplicity. But just because it’s simple doesn’t make it easy. It’s a bit like untying a knot. At first it can seem impossible, overwhelming or hard work. As […]


A Way Out At Last

When I was a kid, like many people I had dreams or fantasies of a life well lived; a life full of possibility, freedom and joy. As I grew up I discovered that life was often harsh, people could not be trusted and feelings of joy were fleeting. As children we’re not aware of what’s […]
