Healing Insecurity and Loneliness

A friend recently asked me if I ever felt lonely. I thought about it, and realised that it had been a long time since I remembered feeling lonely. This realisation was huge for me. For most of my life I had suffered from a deep sense of loneliness. It’s the kind of loneliness that did not go away just because I had company, but one that stayed perpetually in the background of my psyche like some quietly-growing disease.

Afterwards, I reflected on when my loneliness had left me. It was definitely a very gradual shift over many years of self-healing. But it was really since channeling and practising The Art of Dissolving Unwanted Reality that I have been totally liberated from a deep insecurity which had been the source of my loneliness and other mental-emotional afflictions. ...keep reading

Tiny Buddha's Guide To Loving Yourself by Lori Deschene, Conari Press

I mentioned in my previous post that there is a lack of resources that can truly guide us to practice self-love.  Perhaps you too have been hoping that a practical and inspiring guide on the subject of self-love would be available.  If so, Lori Deschene’s new book Tiny Buddha’s Guide To Loving Yourself should come as good news.

This book is a gem.  The author, who is the founder of Tiny Buddha (one of the most popular personal development sites on the internet), has compiled 40 inspiring and touching personal stories shared by contributors to the Tiny Buddha blog.  I am one of the contributors (read my post Are You Running Away From Yourself?). ...keep reading

Learn the enormous power of forgiveness with Amyra Mah
If you’re like me, you would probably roll your eyes when someone mentions the word “forgiveness”.  Like “self-love and “being present”, forgiveness is a word we see everywhere in the self-help world.  We know these concepts are important spiritual practices that will enrich our lives and lead to personal growth, but they’ve been offered so much that it’s become boring to hear it again and again.

The problem isn’t that forgiveness is boring, it is that it’s seldom elaborated beyond the superficial meaning of the word.  When we hear the word, we think we already know what it means.  But like “self-love”, we may not know how to actually practise it even if we think we know what it means.  Thus, we become frustrated with the whole concept of it, since we know we need to practise it but nobody has given us the instructions on how to actually do it. ...keep reading

Celebrating The Spirit Of Humanity

Every now and then, I am reminded of the richness and depth that is found in the human spirit.  In the materialistic world in which we live, we tend to relate to one another on a superficial level, and the human spirit is often concealed from our perception.  Since the materialistic world thrives on power struggles, our motivation has been lowered to “how do I get more?”.  In our drive to rise above others as the biggest, strongest, richest, best, we dampen the spirits of those with whom we interact. ...keep reading
