This book is full of treasure nuggets on how to live a better life – a handbook for living truly sums it up. You might want to take your time to digest everything in here and reflect. I always thought the Dalai Lama was invincible and so zen that he was spared the sufferings of […]

A few friends recommended this book to me and I was a little skeptical at first, but ended up being drawn to the messages that Anita Moorjani shared about life after being cured from terminal cancer, returning from the other realm during a coma when her organs were shutting down.

In hindsight, I am so glad we dealt with cancer privately. The people who mattered already knew, a handful disappeared altogether like it was contagious, but friends whom I consider my extended family continued to treat me the same way. That was really nice, I didn’t need to be reminded of cancer at every turn, because […]

Lots of food photos as it’s been a little hectic and stressful this past week and I forgot to stop daily to look at the beauty in daily life. None of these photos have been retouched as I’d like to track the process and journey of evolving and getting to know my camera and light. […]

It took me a long time, but I finally found peace with work and no longer struggle with the social media façade. I have moved into more […]

I’ve done a fair bit of soul searching, plenty of reading and working on self improvement. Thich Nhat Hanh is truly a peace guru. This is a very easy and digestible read and reaching deep to find our own inner Buddha, practising loving kindness. “Ending violence in yourself, your family, your community and the world.” […]

I’ve always believed that certain books have a time and place of coming into your lives. There are books I’ve read over a decade ago and didn’t enjoy, but picking them up over 10 years later, I have a completely different perspective, enjoying it in many ways I couldn’t a decade ago. I’ve had Michael […]

I really enjoyed his first book Search Inside Yourself and couldn’t wait to read Joy on Demand after reading the reviews. I found his second book a little less accessible than the first, there’s a lot of mastery and “high level” enlightenment that is difficult to comprehend as it comes with tens of thousands of […]
