Challenges and Solutions

There have been times in our lives whether during our adolescent years or as adults when we felt that there wasn’t a way out of our dilemma. As we mature we come to know that no problem is new, that there is a solution for everything. By broadening our knowledge through the books we read […]

Cowed

Some of us live under the weight of intimidation. Though we are free thinkers we cower at the behest of others. If we are afraid to act because we fear retaliation then we have co-opted-ourselves into becoming co-conspirators. © Norma Bobb-Semple 2020

Growth or Stagnation

Is what we were yesterday the same we are today? Growth is a continuous process. If we don’t grow, who we are dies at its core. Are we comfortable with stagnation because it supports our lifestyle and beliefs, regardless of however erroneous they may be? If we can’t comprehend that it is our aggression, exploitation […]

Finding our Tribe

In finding our tribe I am not referring to caste, I am referring to finding people who share our purpose. We are here to bear witness to our ancestors. Living is not about wealth and dominance. It is about living a life that is exemplary to all living entities on Earth. © Norma Bobb-Semple 2020
