Inspirational Wisdom

Through my clients’ journeys and my own, I have found that philosophy, in particular Mindfulness, has helped me to gain a calmer perspective on life, and although not part of any particular religion, faith or philosophy, I respect and admire every one. Below are some quotes that have, in some capacity, helped my clients and myself through the challenging parts of their lives

Slide When you understand that what matters is not so much what we do, but how well we do it ,therein lies the satisfaction we seek Slide The secret to happiness, is not found in acquiring more, but developing the capacity to enjoy less Slide I have learned that the quality of each moment depends not on what we get from it, but what we bring to it. Slide You can control your actions, not the outcomes only be responsible for the consequences Slide The struggle it's self is important. We must strive to be more than we are. Whether you reach the goal is not important. The effort yields it's own rewards Slide Once you've found your path, the superficial destination the world defaults to becomes unimportant. Comparison disappears, and all of a sudden, it's the travel itself that becomes meaningful. No longer are you trying to get somewhere. You're there. Simple as that. You're there today, and you'll be there tomorrow.
Alan Watts

Alan Wilson Watts (6 January 1915 – 16 November 1973) was a British-born philosopher, writer, and speaker, best known as an interpreter and populariser of Eastern philosophy for a Western audience. Born in Chislehurst, England, he moved to the United States in 1938 and began Zen training in New York.

For me, although Alan Watts passed away over 40 years ago, his lectures, insights and explanations of philosophy, in particular Buddhism and Zen, have personally helped me through turbulent times.

If you have a moment, I encourage you to take a few minutes to listen to some of his lectures by pressing any of the play buttons on the right. They are not long, and can inspire some interesting thoughts and debates, especially with the world getting faster and faster, and more demanding.

Have a listen, I very much doubt you’ll be disappointed.
