Launching my New Book

‘Rumi- Love & Wisdom’

I am proud to be launching this, my 7th book Rumi – Love & Wisdom.

Rumi quotes are known the world over for being wise, thought provoking and emotionally powerful. And so allow these inspirational and motivational quotes to guide you in realizing all the power and beauty that exists inside of you.

It is truly incredible to think that this one man, Rumi, could cover so many topics and in so few words yet still inspire us today after some 800 years. He has indeed left behind a body of work, a legacy, that will continue to inspire many generations to come.

In this book I have included some of my most favourite love and wisdom quotes from poems and other works by Rumi. He in fact wrote about everything from life and love, to death and beyond and much more….

I am certain that these words of wisdom will inspire you to harness the power of positive thinking in your everyday life.

Blessings,

Contemplating Life Past – Living Life by Your Terms

Contemplating Life Past – Living Life by Your Terms

 Some days we sit back and contemplate our life don’t we? (well more so when we get a  little older  and we wonder where all those years have gone.

 I looked at the date today and realised that I married my first wife 35 years ago today! It is  simply the time elapsed since then that I was remembering and what I have achieved in  those 35 years, culminating on where I am now.

 Circumstances and events may have depleted me of certain physical assets and financial  security. Yet I believe through this process, I have enriched my life. I have secured who I  am, who I want to be and who I wish to share my life with. It is only then that you realise  that society has indoctrinated us all into believing that success and happiness is based on  this false economy of earn more, spend more, buy more and repeat!.

 You can’t buy happiness. It is a state of mind and I have that happiness. It is shared with  someone very special. And I choose to share my life with others who have stumbled upon  the same conclusion.

Know this! The choice is yours if you choose to stand up and make that choice! So make  your choice and live the life you wish to live. Not how others think you should live it.

                 “Let the beauty of what you love be what you do” ~ Rumi ~

 And furthermore, promise me this! Feel the true richness of life from deep within your  heart and not  some superficial icing on life that we have been brainwashed into believing.  Therefore, seek what is within as the Universe is within you! Thus feel the warmth  and  you shall find it  there!

And most importantly, stop and think for a moment longer. This so called ‘norm’ has really  only been in existence  for the last 60 years or so and sponsored by the corporate Western  world and their  preachers, the politicians.

 Life is a compromise at times but never compromise your true values and the richness of  life itself…….
