Overdue Shift in Education Paradigm

No learning is possible without recourse to the capacities of the learner and the facilitator. If people aren’t learning what is true, there is a disconnect somewhere. It is either the facilitator is a fraud (teaching what is not experienced) or the learner is not willing or ready to learn (which is a direct offshoot…

Insight for Elders

In my journey of life, I have come to realize that I seem to connect much easily with older people; perhaps it is because I seem to understand their story and empathize with them. The case is not so for younger people, who no matter how much one tries to show that they are well…

Beyond the Door

For every door that is knocked, there has to be a response. If there is none, it means there is no one in that address. If and when the door opens, the interaction could go in many ways. But before we explore that, do not forget that the visitor knows what the subject of the…

Defaults and Designs

For over 39 years I have enjoyed divine health from God that the last time I was in a hospital for anything major was 1986, then 1993 when I was hit by a car on my day of fast. Not one time had the things God put in my body given me a reason to…

This Thing Called Mentoring . . .

Moses led (not mentored) Joshua, but Joshua didn’t start his ministry while Moses was alive…same for Elisha to Elijah…same for Disciples to Jesus Christ! None of them went to wake the dead for instructions…the same Holy Spirit that was on their leader was who came on them (for some in double portion). They did greater…

Counsel for Would-be Spouses (Men)

In recent times, I have found myself having a lot of conversations with single men (not many of ladies :-), about choosing a spouse and getting married (I guess ladies prefer to talk to women like them). As a matter of fact, so much burden has been heavy on my heart in this regard. So,…

When Work is Not Working

Not so long ago, I was almost frustrated by how many things were planned and neatly set in order that was not happening as planned because of fluctuations in situations and people’s reliability. Factors that were outside my control were withholding my results and my lack of understanding or refusal to apply wisdom made it…

Rise Again!

At the beginning of new time-markers, we tend to celebrates and follow up with new reviews and resolutions. Often times, we do not take much to heart with respect to what has been, what is and what would be. We begin on a fresh canvass and start off the new that must become old soon,…

What is Your End-Game?

Sometime ago, a young fellow was running away from the fury of his brother, whom he defrauded of something precious to him. He had to live over 20 years of his life with a distant family member, away from his brother, where he was also defrauded by the distant family member so many times. Indeed,…

Of Parables and Plain Words – Promoting Your Values

Crowds gather to one who has left his or her comfort zone to pursue or promote something of significant value. You cannot sit at home and expect the city to come to you there. Technology or not, reaching out to prospects is the only way to get their attention. Still among the multitudes, you will…
