I LOVE chocolate – that is a fact, but the problem I have is the following; does chocolate love me? I have no doubt that the answer to this question is No, with a big Capital N, but that still doesn’t stop me eating it. In the world that we […]

ABOUT 14 years ago when I was troubled with issues of ‘the mind’, I set out on a quest to solve these issues. I came to the conclusion that if my mind could make me sick, then my mind could also make me better. As a result of this quest […]

AS a general rule, the main ingredient of a cake is flour and without it you have no cake. Like any good rule there is always an exception and the one that comes to mind is Victoria Beckham who recently celebrated her birthday with a ‘Melon Cake’! A ‘Melon Cake’ […]

Roger Harty: Reshaping Fear

Roger Harty: Reshaping Fear

October 7, 2018 at 10:30 am Comments are Disabled

A GREAT acronym for the word FEAR is; False Expectations Appearing Real The reason for this is that in truth most of our fears aren’t real. They’re in our imagination and when we face them (i.e. put them to the test) we find that they really and truly weren’t real […]

THEY say that ‘Information is Power’ so that would mean that if we have lack of information we lose our Power. In fact ‘lack of information’ could be connected with our very survival – that is how important some information is to us as Human Beings. This goes back to […]

THE essence of the article I am writing here is to demonstrate how life has changed immensely in this world (especially in the world of communication) over a relatively short period of time. Let’s give the farmer a name – say Padraig and his wife Peig. They have three young […]

I CAME across a saying recently which I thought was very apt – it goes as follows. ‘Long ago there were smart people and dull phones, now we have smart phones and dull people.’ There is a certain truth in that saying that I believe is a little bit close […]

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 […]

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 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. […]

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 […]

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 […]
