When use people and sentient beings as goods to be traded we become part of the global problem. We can solve life’s problems if we approach life with love, understanding, the aberration of gluttony and self aggrandizement. © Norma Bobb-Semple 2023

The Present

We can’t change the past, but we can in the present make decisions that are in alignment with our purpose. Recurring moments are all we have, the past and the future are irrelevant. © Norma Bobb-Semple 2023


Being of service to each other including sentient beings is laudable. Greed is selfish and only serves one, yourself. We are here to serve, not to extort. © Norma Bobb-Semple 2023


Accumulation of possessions is not the path way to happiness. In order to embody happiness we have to be at peace within. As we were born so shall we die, clothed in nakedness, and empty handed. © Norma Bobb-Semple 2023


Sometimes we sow seeds on infertile soil. It is the same in life. It depends on the generosity of those we expend our time and energy on. What we give is dependent on our generosity, and not on the gratitude of others. © Norma Bobb-Semple 2023


To accomplish anything in life we have to be prepared to do the work that is required for its fulfillment. Nothing comes into being by happenstance. It’s all related to preparation. © Norma Bobb-Semple 2023


We have to be discerning of our motives and the motives of the people who are in our inner circle. Ulterior motives are always at work in life. © Norma Bobb-Semple 2023


We like to complain about not finding the qualities we seek in those who are close to us and how we can’t risk confiding in them. Have we looked at ourselves in retrospect and ask ourselves whether we would trust ourselves as our confidant. We need a reality check. © Norma Bobb-Semple 2023
