Read it, don't read it.

Read it, don’t read it, it doesn’t matter to me. I just need to say this to an invisible community out there, who might not even read it or need it. I have been not good enough since 1977 and even before. But the day in 1977 when I was in standard 2, haunts me like a nightmare. It could have been September, the classroom door was open and the sun was bright and warm outside.
I walk through the mall and I look at the people, and I wonder if we all carry the anxiety deep within us. Like a homing device, deep inside, constantly saying “not today, definitely not today, maybe tomorrow”, while time moves forward relentlessly.
Today I am experiencing this sense of urgency so clearly, I would like to cry. While lying in the bath this morning, I ran through a list of my closest friends and family in my head, and I know for sure, one after the other after the other is experiencing that unwelcome, too familiar gnawing “dear God just get me through this day”. And for them today and maybe for you, if you are still reading, it might not even be a bad day.
In this day and age, we say “I am so over myself”, meaning I am sick and tired of myself in conversational language, but what it really means in the language of the heart is “I am sick and tired of locking me away from myself”. And suddenly little bits of concrete are crumbling down from the ceiling as if the walls are starting to fall down.

The bones of the dinosaur.

While in the early stages of my career, as part of a team of psychologists looking after the well-being of the members of the Police Service, I learned that changing systems and structures in the organisation is like turning a freight ship in a tropical storm or servicing a Boeing in mid-flight, to say the least a very difficult and complicated task.  But if you start with one worker-ant at a time, giving the ant the support and guidance needed, over time the positive outcome will infiltrate the structure and the systems.
Structures and systems in the organisation are the bones of the dinosaur. You have to build them up and strengthen them from the inside out.

  • It will shed light on the internal voice and the role of the internal voice in self-perception. 
  • The Original Dream Teachings will focus on change and how constant adaptation to change has become as normal as breathing. 
  • The Original Dream Teachings starts with remembering a childhood memory. 
  • Once this memory has been remembered, the real work will start. Looking at socialization, and the role of time and culture.
  • The Original Dream Teachings are re-education and reverse engineering, back to the place it all started. 
  • The Original Dream Teachings will strengthen resilience, and restore the quality of existence.

We are what we look at.

The original dream teachings are based on the theory that there is a fundamental truth about yourself you need to remember. Remembering this truth will facilitate the alignment of your intrinsic value and who you think you are. Imagine you need your birth certificate for some reason, say you want to apply for a visa. You have an idea of where it could be, but while looking for it you find lots of bits about your childhood you did not know before and these discoveries will change the way you think about yourself. This fundamental truth is your birthright. I believe it is something we all need to remember. Through the original dream teachings, you will be able to restore your inherent ability to take care of yourself.

My book is finally ready.

My book is finally ready, just in time for October. It is the first publication in the original dream teachings. Although the story forms an important part of the teachings as a whole, it can easily stand alone with its own unique meaning. It is a children's book for adults and children. It features all my own drawings. If you are interested, the ebook is available in pdf format for R100. Contact me via my web page, facebook page or blog page. Have a look at the preview below.

The original dream will ignite the north star.

We feel a certain way because we think a certain way. We think a certain way because we were trained that way. This might seem very simplistic, but it is rather simplistic. It is like following stepping stones, getting caught up in the motion and before you know it, you are miles away.
We have so many roles on the stage of life and it is so easy to get caught up in the labels. It just makes everything a bit easier. With each label comes a set of rules and expectations and you don't have to think about it so you can get on with the real thing which we call life. But we forget, that where ever we go and who ever we think we are or try to be, the self, goes everywhere with you, inside of you.
The original dream will ignite the north star, will remind you of you.
