Reality Check

“The faithful man has perished from the earth, and there is no one upright among men. They all lie in wait for blood; every man hunts his brother with a net. That they may successfully do evil with both hands — the prince asks for gifts, the judge seeks a bribe, and the great man…

What do you see?

The faculty of sight is a very vital one because before every other more detailed faculties can process a thing, the eyes would have done preliminary examination to it. However, what is seen is hardly dependent on the eyes itself; instead, it is determined by the heart. In essence, the heart sees before the eyes…

Efforts Validates.

Nothing is what it seems. The more obvious things are, the less likely it is what it seems. It is in the nature of treasures that they have to be sought out…same for truth as a treasure, you have to dig for it. When you are looking for someone or something valuable, you should not…

Needless Worries

Most of your fears will never come through; infact, your fear would do the real damage, not what you fear. When I was much younger, I worried about a lot of things. I had known what being hungry meant; so, it was natural for me to panic about where my next meal would come from….

For instance, reading culture may be a Western thing; Southerners (African) document their histories orally (stories and songs), and both of them are learning to communicate their messages in simplified visuals…

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
