Because Religious People are Stupid, Right?

Religion can be a challenging topic for many, and rightfully so, in today's day and age what we are being solid as religion can be hard to digest.  For a long time in my world, admitting that one was religious meant your intelligence dropped by about 80%, it was like committing a porfessional and socilal death. “Why?” you might ask, “Because religious people are stupid, right?” But what if there is in fact an intelligence that is both inside and all around each and everyone of us; scientifically, philosophically and religiously speaking?

Exploring suicide – considering another way

If one man can experience feelings of suicide, then it means that any man can. Suicide does not discriminate.  Suicide is not something that just happens, it is but the end result of a process where one’s belief in living is slowly dwindled away until one feels so empty that the only choice seemingly left is to discontinue life. We need to realise there is another way.

Honesty In Relationships

We all know that honesty is a key ingredient to developing a good relationship and equally so, we all know what happens when we shy away from the truth. Either someone gets hurt or we end up living a lie.

Love Beyond The sheets – Exploring Our Relationship With Love, Sex and Intimacy

As men, we have a tendency to confuse the differences between intimacy, love and sex, bundling them all together and confining ourselves to only experiencing love and intimacy within the context of our sexual relationships. But what if this is not true? What if the idea that love = sex, or that intimacy = sex, is something that keeps us from truly knowing the power of relationships?

Living in a Rhythm - Self loathing and it's relationship to our daily choices

One of the greatest hurdles I’ve overcome in life is giving myself a hard time for not being perfect. I have been a master of self loathing, sharpening every self-bashing tool, thought and behaviour in the shed. For a long time I operated under the ethos that if I were to do something then it would have to be perfect, meaning that I would often go to extraordinary lengths to achieve what I had set out to achieve, even if it was at the expense of myself.  Thanks to the support and work of Natalie Benhayon, I was able to discover a different way.

Relationships: Are We Having Sex or Making Love?

Sex is something which is presented to us in many guises, be it in the movies, video clips, pornography, on billboards or in magazines. Throughout our lives we are exposed to and experience many different ideas, rules, dogmas or perspectives on what sex is and what sex isn’t. Despite this, our relationship with sex always remains something that is very personal to each of us. One of the greatest errors of our time though is that we have somehow confused the act of sex with the art of making love, combining the two together and robbing ourselves of the beauty found in true love making.

Arguments… Can They Be A Thing Of The Past?

Often in relationships we think it’s easier to let things slide, ignoring and overlooking things that our partners or family do that might feel disrespectful, unloving or dishonoring. Equally so, there are times when we are not at our best and we speak up in an energy that's equally not loving and we end up saying things we don't really mean. Not communicating and holding things back can supply the very fuel upon which our disagreements thrive, what would happen if we never let these moments slide?
