Losing

We lose all the time. We grow old, although that is a positive. Friends come and go. There are births and there are deaths. Seasons comes and goes. We have to celebrate all the seasons in our lives. Every situation is a teaching moment and we are all here to learn. © Norma Bobb-Semple 2022

Mysteries

We can’t fathom the mystery of life and death but we obsess over and obliterate people who we think are inferior to us, including animals and plants which are important to the eco system. We have to transition from the idea of predator and prey to one of collective management of the resources in this […]

Broken

Are we willing to own our brokenness? If we are unwilling to look at who we are, why we are the way we are, then we have lost our way and we can’t be transformed. It takes people of courage to do what is right and just. Everyone else though alive are dead. © Norma […]

What do we need to Exist

What is it we need to exist on this earth? Money, possessions and power are illusions that does not enhance our spiritual growth. We call ourselves wise, powerful and unstoppable and yet we can’t save ourselves from death although we are in the business of destroying the planet and it’s inhabitants. We have to ask […]

The Choices we Make

Some of us choose our personas because of the leverage we can wield. We create facades in order to cover up our true character. Profit has always been the key to all the calamities facing this Universe. We have to seriously ask of ourselves whether we are enablers or someone who sees the same humanity […]

Sober Up

Why do we drink from the well of pomposity, greed, arrogance, ignorance, vice, savagery, and imbecility? When are we going to sober ourselves up and remember that we too will die? Death isn’t singular, it’s communal. No one is spared. © Norma Bobb-Semple 2022

Collectors

Some of us have collections of the things we love and want to admire in our homes, whether it be stones, ornaments, or dolls, etc. We have to be weary about collecting confidants and friends because relationships are not about quantity, it is about quality. We lose people all the time whether by death or […]

Self Confrontation

Every moment offers us an opportunity to reassess how we are living our lives. It is not about becoming the next Politician or Billionaire, it is about aligning ourselves with our purpose. Are we contributing to making the world more free and fair? Are we sympathetic to the plight of people who don’t look like […]

Seasons

We all have our own seasons. Regardless of how much we plan there are going to be seasons of birth, death, joy and sadness. Letting go of our expectations and knowing that everything is only for a season would sustain us in our hour of need. We have to give thanks for every season in […]

Life and Death

Life is like a lighted candle, it isn’t immortal, it extinguishes when it’s life force cannot sustain it’s existence. Even though we are mortal our energy is eternal. If we know who we are we will be a little kinder towards our fellow humans and all sentient beings. © Norma Bobb-Semple 2021
