Release external control, control yourself

I’m going to write about what I’m today referring to as “The Clear Mind Process”. It’s about gaining absolute clarity, absolute control and absolute focus on what you’re currently facing, and indeed discarding things that you are not currently facing – even though you may perceive that you are. During the course of the day, [...]


Desk Fear: Are you Scared of Your Desk?

by PAL on April 15, 2015

Desk Fear

I realised recently that I was put off by my desk. The thought of sitting there filled me with a certain amount of dread, mixed with a mild hint of depression. Also a slight hint of disgust, but that’s another story. But why was this, I thought to myself? I’m a huge fan of my [...]


Be the awareness behind your thoughts

One of the main reasons for taking up mindfulness is to calm your thoughts, to create clarity and to understand and comprehend exactly what you need and desire to do. One of the main reasons why people believe that mindfulness isn’t suited for them is because they can’t calm their thoughts, create clarity and therefore [...]



Are you awake right now? I mean, are you fully aware of your surroundings as you read this? Do you have full control over your thoughts? Or is your mind lost in a fog? A misty fog where you’re thinking, but you aren’t really directly into control of your thoughts. As if your thoughts are [...]

All of us put things off. I certainly do it. Maybe it’s a bill, maybe it’s a report I need to complete or maybe it’s just contacting someone about something you said you’d do last Tuesday. The thing is, once you’ve started putting something off (once you listen to the lizard voice), the more you [...]

I occasionally find myself in the situation where I have a mountain of outstanding work to do, but also in the position where I’m just not getting it done. In fact, a lot of the time, I’m not even tackling it. Instead I find myself procrastinating.. this procrastination comes in many forms. Sometimes it involves [...]

There’s a problem with feminism. Something that bothers me on a daily basis. Something that goes to the very root of society and something that a lot of people don’t immediately see. I for one wish feminism didn’t exist. BUT, before you start sending me notes of hate or death threats. Stop, and listen. The [...]

So earlier, I was watching a video where Madge was dressed as a boy scout, but conveying her upset that she wasn’t actually allowed to be a boy scout. Now that might sound like a rudimentary and obvious thing – it’s called “Boy Scouts”, therefore, why should she be allowed to join? But you see, [...]

This morning I dropped the kids off at school, like I normally do, but for the first time in many months I don’t need to pick them up after school. Today, instead, that job is falling to their Grandma, because they’re going to their Mums for the night. Now, normally I look after my children [...]

Do you ever sit there thinking “Hmmmmm, I’ve got to go out in an hour, I’ll leave this important task for another day”….. I certainly do. But whenever I do, I also find myself thinking “What the hell are you talking about?”. Putting things off because of something that is going to happen in the [...]
