Daily Insights

Daily Insights are insightful truths about reality that empower us to transform our way of thinking.

They are often challenging, and give us the coaching and courage to behave in a way we might never have thought of. They’re great to dwell on and remind ourselves of throughout the day.

The Daily Insights book can be purchased through the Wisdom Shop. Book sections have been indicated for each Insight.

Immunity

Immunity is assisted by the brain, which is assisted by an integrated bank of positive beliefs, in turn made possible by faith in God’s care. Faith is immunity’s ally.

Healthy self-control in the face of difficult people is really a pro-active reaction – it allows choice of expression, rather than dancing to another’s tune.

Dependence

The challenge of youth is to become independent. The challenge of middle-age is to become inter-dependent. The challenge of growing old is to accept your dependence again.
