IF I am to be totally honest, I must admit that I was never a huge fan of science fiction. Perhaps this was for one of two reasons. a) I thought that the whole notion was too far-fetched or b) that it was a little too close to the bone […]

IF there is one thing that hasn’t change down to the centuries, it is the importance of courtesy and manners in our everyday lives. I have a distinct memory of being with my father walking down Fenit Pier and he would routinely tip his hat anytime a lady would pass. […]

I WROTE an article about Oneness on a previous occasion (view here), which basically tells us about the essence of what we are (energy, spirit). Developing a sense of Oneness is a great way to develop peace within oneself. People often talk about duality (Two!) – Where the body and mind […]

YES, there are many great pleasures in life, but I always feel a certain deep pleasure in being able to do something new that I initially doubted was within my remit to do. You see, when we do something new, self-doubt comes as part of the package. In fact, I […]

Roger Harty: What Is Grace?

April 30, 2017 at 11:59 am Comments are Disabled

THE thing about Grace is that by its very nature it is intertwined with belief in God. Now the subject of God has intrigued and baffled mankind for millennia and I certainly am not trying to impose my views on anyone. But for the purpose of this article, as I have […]

I was downtown Tralee recently having a cup of coffee and as I was making my way back up the main street, a stranger asked me as to the whereabouts of a local bookshop. Knowing the answer, I was delighted to oblige and I was about to walk away when […]

A few years ago I visited Scotland and while I was there I was enlightened as to the versatility of the traditional Scottish kilt. The traditional kilt was more like a wrap-around and, as such, had many benefits especially if a Scots warrior wanted to venture off into the Highlands […]

Roger Harty: True Courage

Roger Harty: True Courage

March 26, 2017 at 11:13 am Comments are Disabled

WHAT is very helpful here is to look at the etymology of the word ‘Courage’. It comes from the French word ‘le coeur’ meaning Heart. So when we talk and act from ‘The Heart’ we are showing true courage. Where is the evidence of this? All we need to do is […]

I SUPPOSE a good place to begin with anything is at the start and a good place to start here is in the dictionary. Charity is described as ‘Charitable giving is the act of giving money, goods or time to the unfortunate, either directly or by means of a charitable […]

Roger Harty: What Is Faith?

February 19, 2017 at 11:10 am Comments are Disabled

FAITH, in layman’s terms,  is concentrating on a process knowing that it will work. The key word here is ‘knowing’. In other words you don’t believe it will work (belief is an opinion!) you know it will work. You see, true knowing is not leaving any room for doubt. In […]

IF we are to be honest I’m sure even though we might not like to admit it there is a bit of a detective hidden in all of us. I used to love watching the TV detective ‘Columbo’ many years ago, when he would turn around at the last minute […]

THE sages say that perhaps the most powerful feelings that we can endow ourselves with is that of gratitude, and the easiest way to express that feeling is to say a simple yet sincere ‘Thank You’. Last week I wrote an article about the importance of tradition and culture in our […]

DID you ever hear the comment passed about someone –‘He’s a nice man but there is no real depth to him’? What does this word ‘depth’ mean and is it important if he is a nice man? Well I suppose nice is good but if we really want to develop […]

ABOUT 10 years ago I was first introduced to a book called ‘The Power of Now’ by Eckhart Tolle – it is a testament to this book that it has sold over 30 million copies worldwide. At first I couldn’t make  head nor tail of it and I put it away […]

‘KAIZEN’ is a Japanese word meaning ‘good change’ but it is used in business terms meaning the philosophy of ‘continuous effort at improvement’. The great Toyota car company in Japan would be a good example of the kaizen philosophy at work. As I have often said, there is a huge […]

THREE simple letters, yet they have so much influence on our lives and certainly on our happiness. There is an old, but wise saying that goes as follows – ‘Be careful what you tell yourself’. A good question here is to ask why do we have to be so careful? The […]

I PURPOSEFULLY left this little word stand alone in its own right without adding or subtracting  to the title. I suppose the underlying reason for this is to show how three simple letters can describe something (is it even a thing?) that can play such a powerful part in our lives. […]

SUCCESS: Is having what you want. Happiness: Is wanting what you have. Very often we hear in life ‘don’t take things literally’, but in this case, I think to get the full meaning and benefit of the above mentioned definitions, it is important to take every word literally as it was […]

WHAT is ‘Oneness’? Well it is absence of ‘Twoness’. I know and accept that this is a corny answer but there might just be something in it. You see, what I refer to as ‘Twoness’ is often referred to as duality in psychology. Duality, in other words, means moving into […]
