Death

Seeing the disparities in this Universe I wonder whether we have taken the time to look at death as it relates to us on a personal level. There is no escape from physical death. As a people we look on death as having no relationship to us, it only happens to other people, we are […]

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 […]

Time is an Asset

  Time is the hourglass that sits between life and death.  While we live we should do so with reverence to ourselves, the Earth and every living entity.  Living is a privilege we should not take lightly.  We should remember that death is always waiting.  It is just a matter of time.  If knowing that we […]

Embracing our Fragility

If we are unfeeling we miss out on building meaningful relationships with our fellow human beings and all other life forms.  Earth is an equal opportunity provider, whatever you sow, you are sure to reap.  Remember death doesn’t care about status.  It snatches every life, no one is spared. © Norma Bobb-Semple 2020

Meditation on Life

Life has a beginning and an end. We all die regardless of our perceived perceptions of our hierarchy. One thing is for sure, death waits in the shadow for each and everyone of us. Make bridges today instead of creating walls for this moment is all we have. © Norma Bobb-Semple 2020

Value

How we live our life is determined by our values, which changes as our desires change.  We look outwardly for fulfillment instead of looking within.  Our desires can’t be satiated through the accumulation of wealth, and status.  Neglecting the self for self gratification leads to depression, sickness and immature death. © Norma Bobb-Semple 2020

Equality

  The Universe does not operate on the basis of inequality.   All of nature, whether it is the sun, moon, air, rivers and the earth are working in unison to sustain us.  None of the forces of this earth acts as if it is superior to each other.   How can we who are […]

Reverence

  When a child is born we feast and make merry.  Every event in that child’s development is noted, from first step to first walk, first smile, first word.  We measure their growth with our eyes and expectantly awaits, their first day at school, graduations, jobs and marriage. We neglect though our stewardship in making […]

Life and Death
