Self-contradictory Manner

Canadian TV personality, Cynthia Loyst, once said, “we live in a highly sexed society, yet we are so afraid of talking about sex.” Her statement sums up perfectly the contradictory nature of our world.

Leading our lives in a self-contradictory manner is so exhausting. We know that it is exhausting. Then, why are we still choosing to live this way? Is it due to our pre-conditionings? Or, is it due to our fear of fingering out, potentially, how powerful we can possibly be should we decide to accept and embrace all of us?


It is quite humid today in Toronto. The warm weather can uplift our mood, the sweatiness that comes as an inevitable consequence can also trigger some unpleasant past memories. Please remember that when our heart beat is on its way up and our inner world gets noisy and unsettling, let’s slow down and recenter.
