The Power of One Series I’m certain she doesn’t know the extent to which she impacted me; even I hadn’t grasped the profundity of her impact until I began thinking about who had. Fonsonia O’Garro was my direct supervisor at N. Brisbane and Associates or N.B.A. (now Brisbane O’Garro Alvaranga, B.O.A.), one of the region’s … Continue reading Ideal Leadership By Example | Fonsonia O’Garro
What we think are our most inconsequential choices in fact have incalculable karmaic impact. What we ate today... Something no longer exists, as it did, in order that we may live. "Who we're wearing"... Is more than brand name clothing, it's who harvested the material and who did the fabricating. There are whole nations and … Continue reading A Brief Word on the Karmic Impact of Even Our Most (Presumably) Inconsequential Choices
Being fruitful is bringing to the fore the best possibilities we can imagine over the longest expanse of time.

What faith is 2. What Faith Is Not and 3. Why We Should All Have Faith | Part 1 of the 3
Last week, reports circled my tiny twin-island Federation of a chillingly double murder. Guns can allow for quite the distance between victim and perpetrator but not so with chop wounds as reported. Many people don't want to know "why" this happened because they argue that there's no justifying it. Many will express an interest in … Continue reading The Importance of Understanding the Reasons Behind Offender’s Motives
I quite like the concepts behind the "Law of Attraction". I wonder though if it's "attraction" or (natural) "selection".
😐 Sooo, you can do all things through God who strengthens you yet you're "powerless" to positively affect the lives of those he instructed you to love as thyself... 🙄 ☝️😌 Well, either you can't in fact do all things through God as the Good Book says or you can and do but God is … Continue reading Powerless or Wilful?
It's not figures with more commas than the average sentence that changes things. Dollar bills and coins bare the head of deceased individuals — no arms, no legs, no intentions. It's not them but us who make things happen; they are mere middlemen. They bare no power, not even potential. What they do however, is … Continue reading Dollars spent; where’s the change?

This "happiness" we define as an individual and independent, rather than an intertwined and interdependent quest. So we're simultaneously insignificant and the … Continue reading Inconsequential Us?
"I don't care who gets murdered, robbed or assaulted; once me and mine are good, all's well." And while this certainly isn't how I think, it's what I'm told I ought to think everything my selfless motives are discouraged and I'm encouraged to put self above all else. Question though, isn't this self-interest what informs … Continue reading Who cares?

There’s life as we know it personally; life as we know it second-handedly; and though virtually always ignored, life as it could be. We have the option of being unwitting consumers subject to the inertia of change or we can assume our intended roles as Architect, Engineer and Contractor. We are the engineers of our … Continue reading We are creators. The possibilities are endless.
