The Giant's chair

Joseph D'Souza - Friday, August 05, 2016

We are all Giant's in our own worlds!


Until we sit in another Giant's chair we may not appreciate that there are other Giant's even larger than ourselves! What if we looked for the Giant within in every person we meet?




Spring hints in winters close

Joseph D'Souza - Thursday, August 04, 2016

Seasons come and go in natural law.


Yet when in the season we sometimes wish it were longer or shorter or different. 


We soon forget, in the 'heat of the moment' that all is really transient. Yet it is in the present moment that we experience the fullness of what it is to be. And so too with everyday life's circumstances. 


Why does the 'big picture' seem so elusive?



Do you have an adventurous mind?

What does it mean to have and adventurous mind for you? 

How would it change who you are?

What effect will it have on the direction you are travelling?




Happy to go for a walk

Everyone should meet a Polinka like our Polinka!

My sister-in-law Polinka comes from the Ukraine. We both have a love of the natural world. Wherever she travels, her love and understanding of nature is both a joy to watch and an education.  She comes alive in the countryside with infectious enthusiasm! Having lived her married life in England, Polinka, with my brother and daughter now live in the USA. Their Australian visits are always with adventure and family get-togethers. Polinka is Mistress of the cultivated vegetable garden, wild life whisperer, and an encyclopedia of native flora. We find ourselves tasting many wild pickings we previously just walked by. 


If you would define potential you would be limiting it

One bloom from one plant to generate an infinite number of seeds to grow countless other plants which will carry a myriad of new blooms.

You may be insignificant

Joseph D'Souza - Sunday, May 22, 2016

You may be insignificant in physical size when everything around you seems infinite. Yet you can still drink the water and acknowledge what surrounds you.

When you look at your reflection

Joseph D'Souza - Saturday, May 21, 2016

When you look at your reflection....

When we look at our reflection, do we see what we want to see? Do we look at what we want others to see? Is the reflection true or indeed mirrored?

The supreme owl and leadership

Joseph D'Souza - Thursday, June 04, 2015


I have always referred to the symbol of owl as 'the wise owl'

It is all seeing with its noticeable 360 degrees head turns; It sees in the dark - it can see through what is apparently hidden....etc. From ancient times the owl symbolism includes intelligence, mystery, wisdom, secret (occult sense), protector. Now from this video clip I add further: Supreme magnanimity. As we all walk our lives, sometimes our own inner noise leaves ripples of 'interference' in our environment. Refined presence just passes through - inspiring others to move! 

 I work in the field of Executive Coaching and Leadership Development including High Performing Teams programmes. I reflect how great leaders work and 'move' in every aspect of life as Human Being, in their Relational world and in their Professional or vocational journeys. Great leaders, like my 'Wise Owl' stir those who would be inspired at levels much beyond the mundane.

 

 

Today you are somewhere in-between

Joseph D'Souza - Saturday, May 30, 2015

Today you are somewhere in-between. The question is, do you know that and do you understand what it implies?
