Roger Harty: Delivering Results

IF we are looking for improved results in any aspect of our lives there is one common denominator – it has to involve one thing — Change. The reason for this is as follows. A quote from Albert Einstein; “If you always do as you always did you will always get what […]

Roger Harty: Pull The Other One!

August 5, 2018 at 12:15 pm 1 comment

THE above phrase is often used in terms of humour – it refers to someone telling you a tall story that they are asking you to believe and you reply that instead of ‘pulling my leg’, why not ‘pull the other one’. It also gives recognition to the fact that […]

Roger Harty: Ego (Part 2)

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 […]

Roger Harty: Tomato / Tomatoe

July 22, 2018 at 11:55 am 1 comment

I USE the title above to describe a situation where two words basically mean the same thing. I suppose I want to also highlight how we can involve ourselves in getting too caught up in the pedantics of something as trivial as pronounciation. What a waste of energy.  My mother […]

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. […]

Roger Harty: The Importance Of The Word ‘Abstract’

OK, this article is a little tricky, but that’s ok with me because the word ‘Abstract’ is a little tricky. Useful quote: If you change the way you look at the world; the world you look at changes – Wayne Dyer. Right let’s get down to business. If I asked most […]

WE cannot control what happens in our world but we can always control how we react to what happens in our world. Let me repeat that please – we always have the ability to control how we react. The problem is… • We have this ability but we do not […]

I SIMPLY love the old sayings. It’s not just a simple love it’s often that they encapsulate within them an enormous amount of wisdom that can bring – if applied – great benefit to our lives. Very often all we need to do is to take the time to give […]

AT the risk of being accused of repeating myself ad nauseam, I’m going to say it one more time. To find solutions to the deeper aspects of life it is far better to ask the right questions rather than looking for the right answers. To this end Shakespeare was spot […]

ONE of the great advantages of writing my own article is that I have the opportunity to ask myself my own questions and in turn give my own answers. With this in mind I am going to ask myself perhaps the deepest question that there is to ask. ‘Roger, what […]

Roger Harty: The Real Meaning Of The Word Religion

April 29, 2018 at 10:48 am Comments are Disabled

THE word Religion has got a lot of bad press of recent years and many would say ‘quite rightly so’, but I would like to say that we have to be careful not to throw out the baby with the bathwater. To begin with, no one holds ownership over the word […]

Roger Harty: What Is Divine Mercy?

April 22, 2018 at 10:13 am Comments are Disabled

IN my last article, I defined mercy as – sending a loving reaction to any given human situation. Well to follow on from that then the definition of ‘Divine Mercy’ should be very easy. It is God sending a loving reaction to any given human situation. I suppose it would […]

I RECENTLY heard someone give a definition of the true meaning of mercy and I must say I found it very interesting. To be honest I had not given it much thought prior to this. He said – “Mercy is sending a loving reaction to any given human situation”. What […]

THE answer to this can be summed in two words – it’s Limitless. It all really depends on the amount of attention we give them. The more we study them the more they will fascinate us and very often they will give us lessons as to how we can best live […]

March 18, 2018 at 10:11 am 1 comment

IF you were to look up the meaning of the word precious in the dictionary you would find the following…‘of great value; not to be wasted or treated carelessly’. Another bit of trivia is that the word precious originates from the Latin word pretiōsus costly, valuable, equivalent to preti(um) price. […]

AS I write this, I am just reflecting on how the word ‘Fasting’ is a term we hardly use anymore, it’s as if it is ‘old hat’ and a thing of the past. It’s also associated with what we could call self – inflicted suffering and deprivation and when we […]

THERE is an old Chinese proverb which says that ‘One picture creates ten thousand words’. For me without doubt the painting of ‘The Creation Of Adam’ by Michelangelo is one such painting. It is the central painting of the ceiling in the Sistine Chapel in the Vatican and in my […]
