Twins in the womb

Ever heard the story of the two twins in a mothers womb talking life, purpose and meaning? It is a Spiritual Story of Self and Spirit. Pretty bizarre and amazing story that focuses on at least two ways to see the world and everything in it.

The distance between faith and faithlessness, hope and hopelessness is the space in which we find ourselves living today. There is irony, in-congruence and everything from absurd senselessness on a universal scale to metaphysical meaning that can be found in the utterances of a child which we detail in our story of two twins in a spiritual womb. In Our Greatest Gift, Henri Nouwen tells A Spiritual Story of Self a and Spirit. A story of faith and hope through two twins in a spiritual womb that I think is amazingly profound.

Recovering from the Peter Pan Syndrome

THE SCIENCE OF FINDING YOUR SPIRITUAL SELF

The Peter Pan syndrome describes people who don’t grow up. Petra Pam for the ladies. When they are adults they are still acting like children. This is particularly common in men these days. Thus, the phrase Maleolecent, as in a make adolescent, has been coined to describe these adult children. Peter Pan syndrome is aided and abetted by parents who enable their children, by doing for them, what they can do for themselves. They stunt their emotional growth, albeit with the best of intentions. This stunting is becoming an epidemic that is leaving 30 and 40 year olds without careers, without partners and without a clue.

10 Lessons for Living A Clean, Healthy and Honest Life

THE SCIENCE OF FINDING YOUR SPIRITUAL SELF

10 Lessons for Living A Clean, Healthy and Honest Life

So many people are battling to stay clean from addictions. Some are plagued by worry, fear and esteem. Others hide the fact that they cannot cope. They secretly tread through life with hidden angst and terror, that awkwardly shows itself as anger and overcompensation. Generally this all comes out sideways.

Many people talk about how they just cannot seem to cope with daily life. They battle to function ‘normally’. They feel like they are barely hanging onto sanity.

Some of these people have battled with depression, or anxiety or addictions. More often than not, they have ebbed through all three at some stage of their lives.
