I saw Steven Hawking on this TV  program recently (Steven Hawking Grand Design – The Meaning of Life). He said something that really made a lot of sense to me. I greatly admire the genius of Steven Hawking and many other scientists, however I can never accept scientific theory as 100% truth. History has taught me otherwise. Our learning evolves just as we do. What we believe today may be laughed at in another 50-100 […]

Another year is nearly over! What happened to those goals for 2012? Did I meet them? Mostly not. Does it matter? Not really. Turning points are those moments when my thinking and/or behaviour changes significantly. New insight, new discoveries, outdated ideas, all contribute to turning points and fresh starts. 1. In my early 20’s I realised thinking of others instead of myself could actually bring more joy into my life. 2. At 30 I realised […]
