The meaning of Life

January 31, 2019

A journey of discovery in all things worthwhile or meaningful, need not rely on motivational books or worldly travel. Nor is it found in the achievement of high status employment.


Our family brings new meaning & great joys beyond compare, but with it comes new challenges and moments of despair.

This journey is the training ground of understanding people, to know ourselves and life abound, so we can reach that steeple.


Self-actualisation is not earnt through achieving great power or accumulating material wealth. It can only be found in the heart and mind of one’s self. True happiness can be fulfilled, the moment we see the smiles on the faces of those we touched. Through better understanding our own needs, accepting our destiny, imparting our wisdom and sharing love, then and only then will we enjoy inner peace and know the true meaning of life.
