Okay Google, Hey Siri, I know you're listening...
In order to respond when you say "Okay, Google" or "Hey, Siri," your phone has to be listening to every word you say. You realise that, right? Just want to make sure you're okay with your phone listening in on everything you say.

Can you think your way to success?
"Think and grow rich." "Positive thinking." "Possibility thinking." How's that working out for ya? Could it be that thinking isn't the right tool for the job of personal ontological change?

Church in a Time of Covid-19: We're all televangelists now

Most of the ocean is unknown to us. And most of the planet is ocean.
Did you know that, just like the moon has a "dark" side that never faces the earth, earth has an "ocean" side that is almost entirely water?  How could anyone think that we know this planet when most of the ocean is unexplored - and most of the planet is ocean?  Is this a metaphor for how much we know as a species and as individuals?

Everyone has a shadow
Shadows that are kept in the dark only grow larger and darker. Don't hide your shadow. We all have them.

Easy to do, easy not to do
What's easy to do is also, by definition, easy not to do. So, what are you gonna do?

"Warning: I really don't care"
Why do some people care so much to make sure that you know they don't care what you think about them? It's because they really, really care what you think of them, of course. If you really don't care, you don't care if people don't know that you don't care.

The Mandalorian, your wounded warrior and your inner child
Loving yourself means loving all facets of yourself. The toughness you acquire from living life and the wide-eyed innocence you perhaps quickly tried to leave behind can coexist; can actually live together powerfully in you.

How to use a serviette - and judge people
We learn a lot of things when we're young. Mostly from our parents. Growing up means knowing which lessons to hold dear - and which to let go off!

Convenience is a tool for your benefit, so use it
What's better, an ideal situation that never comes into existence, or a good-enough experience that happens on a regular basis? Duh, right? Which one are you aiming for in your life, work and relationships?

You choose what you put in your shopping cart
There's no one to blame for what I put in my shopping cart. I chose the items. I'll have to pay for them. But until I get to the checkout counter, I can change my choices to my satisfaction. You know what I'm saying?

Every thing leads to another thing and another and another...
Because I enrolled in a life growth training programme, I signed up for a dance class, so my wife signed up, so my son stayed home alone for the first time. Everything has a ripple effect. Are you using it to your advantage? 10-03 feeling my muscles after dance 3 Oct, 11.46 pm

How much would you pay for your health?
Your health really is your most precious possession. Health is wealth, and health starts with nutrition. How much are you spending on nutrition, or do you leave it to chance and habit? 09-03 Health is wealth, starts with diet 3 Sep, 9.38 am

Smoking? Overeating? Negative thinking? Which bad habits are worse?
All bad habits are bad, but they're not all equally bad. There are habits worse than habits of bad behaviour, for example. Bad thinking, bad feeling - these are worse because they're closer to the core of who we are. Are you loving yourself with your habits of thought and feeling? 08-27 what are your habits 27 Aug, 9.39 am

It's normal to have a job, but for how long more?
We, as a collective, define what's normal. A generation ago, lifetime jobs were normal. They're not anymore. What is becoming normal, and are you - and your kids - prepared for it?

Don't pray for answers, pray for this instead
People tend to pray for answers, but is that what God wants? Pray for this thing instead, and answers will come.

Pause, look back, and measure your success
Life has to be lived forward, but it has to be understood backwards. Take time regularly to stop, look back and see how far you've come. Let it be fuel for how far you have to go.

Children are closer to the unseen portal
I'm over four decades removed from the celestial portal. My son is just over one decade removed. Why would I think I have things to teach him instead of the other way around? 08-21 children are closer to the portal

It's impossible to keep you down
If the Spirit lives in you, it's impossible for darkness to hold you down for long. Just remember who lives in you and you'll rise again.

How I skipped falling sick
I used to pick up whatever bug was going around the office. Then I switched from occasional supplementation with off-the-shelf vitamins to regular daily top-of-the line nutritionals. It's a metaphor for life. Practise the good habits when you "don't need them." Don't just reach for quick fixes. And take your world-class daily nutritionals.

What is the Word of God?
Is it the Law of Moses? Is it the Old Testament? Is it the 66 books? Is it the 66 plus Apocrypha? Is it the Ethiopian canon of 80+ scriptures? What is the Word of God?

Easy to do, easy not to do
What's easy to do in life is also easy not to do. Thus, don't take the easy way out. Pay the price and do what's necessary for you to reach your goals. Pay the price of your daily practices.

Was everything awesome in ancient times?
Were the ancients just better people than us? Or did they also produce some pretty crappy stuff? What do you think?

How do you know how green the grass is?
It's not about how green the grass is on one side or another. It's about whether you have the power to find out.

What does wisdom sound like?
Wisdom. Is it deep as the ocean? Is it as lofty as the Himalayas? What does wisdom sound like and how do you know whom to listen to?
