Comfort with Karma

Karma is the Sanskrit word for action where the teachings of karma is not meant to be a punishment. Present for the sake of education; it is deep rooted that a person only ‘suffers’ if they have created the conditions for suffering. The teachings are for the actions :: How else is someone to learn how to be a good person if they are never taught that harmful action is wrong. Alas a person only suffers if they have created the conditions for suffering. 1. The Great Law “As you sow, so shall you reap.” Also known as the “Law of Cause and Effect.” To receive happiness, peace, love, and friendship, one must BE happy, peaceful, loving, and a true friend. Whatever one puts out into the Universe will come back to them. 2. The Law of Creation Life requires our participation to happen. It does not happen by itself. We are one with the Universe, both inside and out. Whatever surrounds us gives us clues to our inner state. Surround yourself with what you …

Mid Life Relationship

Georgina, is the founder of A fat lot of good. She lives with her three children. Each week, she writes about the sense—and nonsense—of life. Many experts approach relationship challenges from the “deficiency model.” In this model, they identify what isn’t working, and work to fix those problems. On this statement I feel perplexed at the entire pressure around relationships and that perhaps we should look to the eye of the storm before its causal breakdown. A relationship is one where both people feel and have respect for themselves and with this have a deep bond between each other. In doing this it radiates and a natural stronger bond will flow.

One where both people feel a personal strength allowing a deep bond between each other. In doing this, there is …

Be A Magnet

A patrol of the self to hold the hand of understanding that today is enough. Be brave, be centred and observe that the very best bits are when you show up for you in you; in understanding and compassion. Let us be thankful for the problems we don’t have. Happiness emanates from a deep understanding of nurture for the self. Integrity, self discipline and contemplation. Bodily respect, mastery of the mind and emotions with energetic awareness, internal awareness and detachment from habit and craving. In observance of self stillness in aspiration for peaceable joy, fulfilment and freedom. Forethought is put into contentment of living day by day, non conformity to overwhelming pressure in a life that is boundaried in knowledge of showing up peaceably for the ever learning self. Become the light, the magnet and set your identity of being really connected with the beautiful feminine self. Nurture the goodness you hold within and that you already have enough. Be here now, practice self love, tap into your strength, expose your ego and flock to your …
