Possibility Articles

These articles, essays and letters are designed to help point the reader toward Possibility (and away from impossibility).

Each piece helps flesh out how you and I can live from a fresh view of life, freedom and creativity. They are equally relevant for practitioners, mums and dads, businesspeople and those working in the public sector.

WHAT CAN WE DO TO DISCOVER OR REDISCOVER OUR FREEDOM?

Our psychological, philosophical and spiritual freedom lies within. Some, intrigued by what is being pointed to in these messages, ask: ‘That’s all well and good, but how do I access The Realm of Possibility? Give me some instructions for how I can do that.’ The following is… Read More

THE ANSWER TO WHAT AILS HUMANITY!

The answer to what ails the world exists within you and me – within each and every one of us.
‘This reads like an academic paper’ – was the feedback. ‘It lacks a compelling story that readers can relate to, be moved by.’

I responded, ‘Libraries and bookstores are full of beautiful stories, inspiring stories.’ Then added, ‘Have these stories written throughout human history moved us to be kinder, more understanding, using wisdom and common sense?’

This essay does lack a beautiful story. But it diagnoses what ails humanity and unerringly points to where the cure exists. A cure that is already within you, me, and every human being.

SOME OUTCOMES OF WHAT AILS THE WORLD?

As you read this, thirty blood and guts-soaked wars are occurring worldwide*.

Ukraine and Gaza are only the two most prominent, vile, insane and inhumane examples.

You will agree that humanity has advanced scientifically and technologically beyond belief.

And yet we remain psychologically, philosophically, spiritual cave dwellers beyond comprehension.

The proof is evident worldwide: The homeless, starving, malnourished, and the flood, fire and drought ravished.

We (you and I) must address these inhumane conditions quickly, carefully and sustainably. All the natural resources and accumulated wealth to do so exist.

To the answer …

CREATING PEACE, NOT WAR – LOVE, NOT HATE – SUCCESS, NOT FAILURE

All of us are familiar with ‘thinking’.

We do it all the time. For most, unthinkingly.

Too few are, at this time in our evolution, intimately familiar with ‘Thought’ (with a capital T to differentiate it from its form - our moment-to-moment thinking).

Thought is the energy source of all human thinking, feelings, and actions.

A self-realised understanding of Thought holds the answers humanity seeks.

With such insight, we become part of the solution rather than being part of the problem.

DEFINING THE ANSWER

Our understanding of Thought and the power in its manifestations – our moment-to-moment thinking, feelings, and behaviour – answers why war or peace, love or hate, success or failure and every aspect of human behaviour that we classify as good, bad, or indifferent exists.

This piece provides the answers to the following questions and, more importantly, points to our innate Realm of Possibility, where those answers become our personally discovered reality:

1) What is Thought?

2) Where does it exist?

3) How does Thought manifest in our mind as our thinking and as a uniquely personal and separate reality?

4) Where do you, I and every human being walking the planet – directly experience the essence of Thought?

5) What are the benefits to us individually and humanity as a whole in you and I having a direct experience of and, therefore, coming to understand Thought?

6) As a first step towards the yet-to-be-seen, are there benefits in understanding Thought intellectually (as offered in this essay)?

A SNOWBALL’S CHANCE IN HELL

What would we discover if we were to look into the minds of the antagonists on either side of the horrors in Ukraine or Gaza? We’d discover the world they have grown up in and conditioned by—the welded-on beliefs, opinions, judgements and knowledge of the prior victors and vanquished. Read More

OUR PATH TO PEACE

We discover peace in transcending all belief, opinion, judgment, and knowledge – including this – if taken as ‘the truth’. We experience reality via the gift of Thought, either through the veil of our conditioned thinking – our accumulation of beliefs, opinions, judgements and knowledge – our state… Read More

Possibility – what a wonderful word that is!

Possibility or impossibility is the raw material of our daily lives, creating our reality from either state. Did you know that you and I – and each human on the planet –  create our uniquely personal reality? You and I are doing it right now. Think about that. Yes,… Read More

POWER AND PEACE EXISTS WITHIN OUR MIND

The Realm of Possibility is our innate personal, professional and planetary state of well-being.   If you think you are powerless or in control, neither is true. If you believe others are better than you or that you are better than them – those are… Read More
