Idol Worship: Of What Value Is It?

The need to feel safe, valuable and loved is at the core of human experience. This singular need has focused our attention towards the external factors (money, fame, power) and not the internal factor (authentic power). Understanding this “mystery” leads me to the concept of “idolatry” or “idol worship”. We can define idolatry as the worship of an idol or a physical object – such as cult image – which the worshipper regards as a god. Idolatry can also be described as practices believed to verge on worship such as giving honour and regard to created forms. Given this...

Understanding Why Trust Is an Essential Part of Life

Let us take a familiar illustration. You suddenly find yourself on an island with nowhere else to go; all the faces around are largely unfamiliar.

What You Didn’t Know about Life and Oxygen

We were taught in elementary science classes that oxygen is a colourless, odourless and tasteless gas that is necessary for life. We scored good grades for memorising and reproducing this information in many examinations. Sadly, this definition didn’t share the full gist with us. The beautiful part of that unshared gist is what this post will deliver to you. Oxygen is found in the air that blows around us. When it is lacking, it could be supplied, especially in critical medical conditions. But, is it really oxygen that keeps us alive? Is life preserved simply because oxygen is readily...
