Are you living your truth?

The People Skills Blog

In keeping to our theme on truth this week:

 

Frederick W. Robertson said this about truth,

 

“It is not the number of books you read, nor the variety of sermons you hear, nor the amount of religious conversation in which you mix, but it is the frequency and earnestness with which you meditate on these things till the truth in them becomes your own and part of your being, that ensures your growth.”

 

This really hit me because I read books in massive numbers, and listen to a variety of sermons and philosophies and I have deep conversations, yet am I the best I can be?

 

The instruction here is not about all that I’m doing – it’s about how I am using.

 

Am I mediating on all of these things in a way that will help me?

 

Yesterday I attended a funeral for…

Quote of the day

T.I.G.R.

Deep understanding of politics from the author of The Chronicles of Narnia:

Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron‘s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their consciences.
C. S. Lewis

Hadassah Media Koncept

The Lagos State Government, on Monday, announced that it would introduce Mandarin, or Chinese language, in public schools’ curriculum as from next session.

Olayinka Oladunjoye, the state’s Commissioner for Education, in a statement signed by the ministry’s Public Relations Officer, Lanre Bajulaiye, said that learning the language in the state’s public schools would be an opportunity for the pupils and students to speak the language and be able to adapt to the Chinese culture.

The commissioner said this after a delegation from the Chinese Confucius Institute of the University of Lagos visited her.

Caleb Orimoogunje, Director of the Institute, said that the institution was ready to assist the state with necessary logistics to make the teaching and learning of the language easier; adding that Lirong Jiang, a co-director of the institute, would help in the take-off of the programme.

Jiang said the institute, as a representative of the Chinese culture…

After four years of playing Telema Duke in the hit M-Net TV soap, Tinsel, Damilola Adegbite’s management today announced her exit from the TV series. They didn’t say why she was leaving other than ‘it was a professional career decision that had to be made’ and they also didn’t say if she would be replaced on Tinsel.

Despite leaving Tinsel, Damilola still plans to pursue her acting career…probably join Nollywood full time.

silence »

One of the best schools and probably the most popular school is the school of SILENCE! I hear it left, right and centre that silence is GOLDEN! Even you hear it also. Well is silence golden? Yea it is literally and expressively; because a fool is considered wise, if he keeps silence. As humans, we have deep frustrations that makes us rage, develop our misery unnecessarily because of not studying well in the school of silence. Ά wise man said there is limit to human endurance; which goes forth to a lame man- there is a limit to break the silence code but the main task is how can we try not to break the silence code? Because of the people we have around. Lol .There are two type of silence I categorised which are:
•silence to frustrations
•silence for excellence.
To elevate and talk more on silence to frustration I must confess that we have annoying, I mean really annoying people, maybe our friends, relatives, neighbours … And this makes us kill silence and act dramatically. For scaling through this stage, you need silence and a level of understanding that could go a long way to avoid unnecessary display of character. Silence shows a level of humility geometric ally. Also note: that silence doesn’t signify you a fool or slow- Wisdom.
Silence of excellence Car lyle Thomas: “silence is the element which great things fashion themselves”. He also wrote -“when the oak is felled,the whole forest echoes with its fall, but a hundred acorns are sown in silence by an unnoticed breeze.
Silence-“the pause” its good to have ά season of silence(a pause) in most things we do in life; most people have been partackers of mishaps because they couldn’t pause for some minutes, some ideas have been stolen from some people because they can’t “PAUSE”-silence! Talking out secrets and ideas unnecessarily in this cold world! Well, I buttress by saying that practically the great things of your life will be born during your stay in your school of silence!#quiet time needed.
If you also take note the important/realistic decisions of your life are made silently! “Destiny is made of silence” act silently to elevate yourself, be silent and confident but don’t act ά FOOL.

silence doesn’t mean Foolishness..Always remember.
Happy New Week:):*
