Family – emotional strings without content
Many have reported struggling with their families the past few months of lock downs and curfews, some saying that they have realized a lot about their families, including wives and husbands who sometimes have had to face that besides the children, they don't have that much in common. We noticed that the calls purporting to … Continue reading Family – emotional strings without content
Wounds Lead to Entitlement or Healing?
To be healthy is fundamentally also to be happy, whatever that means for each of us, or if not happy, at least to acknowledge and even embrace the unhappiness. The donkey EEyore in Whinny the Pooh embraces his sadness and it's his way of being, so it's his "happy". I would see myself in that … Continue reading Wounds Lead to Entitlement or Healing?
A Culture of Predators
In my first of a series of 3 blogs - I explored the fact that we eat animals even if it’s immensely clear scientifically that it’s killing us and nature, leaving the Earth to a destiny of a dusty over-heated desert, a scenario well depicted in the movie Interstellar.

See what you have been taught to be and think
If you are kind only to the ones who are kind to you, and bad to the ones who 'deserve it', you will probably feel bad yourself sooner or later, and you'll lose yourself in right and wrong, principals and judgment. To be what we are is independent of whom we are with when we reach our … Continue reading See what you have been taught to be and think

In … Continue reading Sugar Is an Addictive Fat Promoter
Divorce Isn’t a Failure…When We Grow!
We grew apart, we didn't fall apart, and it wasn't a choice. Only the conclusions around the divorce was a choice. I even see smoking or drinking as more of a choice in leading to the ultimate separation; death. He wasn't happy in our marriage, was that his choice to not be happy? I tried … Continue reading Divorce Isn’t a Failure…When We Grow!
Until Death Do Us Apart
For me it's the opposite, how can you NOT stay friends, specially if there was love, friendship, kids and happy memories. That was my choice. If you loved someone you want him or her to be happy, and stay friends, wouldn't you? Everything else is selfish and wrong for me. What's the difference when it's … Continue reading Until Death Do Us Apart

It costs between $5-$10,000 dollars an hour to fly a Bombardier Global Express, so the flight from Jeddah to Riyadh, plus taxiiing on the runway, takeoff and landing, would have required at least 3.5 hours, for a total of anywhere between $17,500 to $35,000 dollars (and 3 times the yearly fuel consumption for the … Continue reading When the wrong time is the right time
The Good Country Index
“Good, gooder, goodest country in the world” - that’s what this index shows us, as Simon Anholt says in this TED-talk. It’s not a Good, better, the best Index, and it’s not a Happy Country Index they have done either. This is an Index that shows which countries do Good in a global perspective. Not … Continue reading The Good Country Index
