Order in Disorder

Order in Disorder

Chaos is the score upon which reality is written.


"Peace and the survival of life on earth as we know it are threatened by human activities which lack a commitment to humanitarian values.

Destruction of nature and nature resources results from ignorance, greed and lack of respect for the earth's living things. This lack of respect extends even to earth's human descendants, the future generations who will inherit a vastly degraded planet if world peace does not become a reality, and destruction of the natural environment continues at the present rate.

Our ancestors viewed the' earth as rich and bountiful, which it is. Many people in the past also saw nature as inexhaustibly sustainable, which we now know is the case only if we care for it.

It is not difficult to forgive destruction in the past, which resulted from ignorance. Today, however, we have access to more information, and it is essential that we re-examine ethically what we have inherited, what we are responsible for, and what we will pass on to coming generations. 

Clearly this is a pivotal generation. Global communication is possible."

Happiness via discarding of negative energy

Happiness via discarding of negative energy

A Beach Promenade - 1896- Michael Peter Ancher-Danish, 1849-1927

The whole concept of negative energy may be an alien thought to the steadfast realist. Nevertheless, it does exist and it manifests in various forms that sometimes foster unhappy, unfulfilled or unsettled lives.

This is not to say that one can shirk off all responsibility concerning one’s state of affairs. One still needs to be held accountable for their actions, relationships, beliefs, thoughts and overall well being.

Meanwhile, through applications of the suggestions listed below, you can discard any unpleasantness and, ultimately improve your life’s sparkle:

Visual Stimulation:

An inspirational movie with a great narrative, paintings, photographs are one way to, through visual and vicarious experience, eliminate that pesky negativity. And the common joy that is shared by many is the experience of a seaside excursion and summertime fun activities. To get you started on this, here’s a gallery of artworks set in a slideshow.


Who would dispute that Music is a required food for the soul. Depending on the melody, the mood is transformed into joy, excitement, somber reflections, peace or despair. As one has the choice however, chose carefully to attain happiness and to re-align good energies in yourself and your space.

Furthermore, if you can, play an instrument, sing a song or simply listen to an upbeat melody, you’ll be well on your way to fostering that upbeat energy. It’s a well documented fact that singing or listening to buoyant music promotes good health. It certainly can improve cognition, strengthen your lungs, lower blood pressure and improve posture. And the best part is, you can take it along with you wherever you go and whatever you do. 

Foliage and Flora:

A leisurely walk in a forested region does wonders to ease those weighty concerns. The cacophony of Nature’s concert soothes all ears while bountiful oxygen fills the lungs and you are energized.

Regarding indoor space plants are an essential garnish for establishing a positive space. The soul is lightened by the confirmatory accoutrement of green hues of leaves and stems sometimes supporting colourful flowers. And that’s not all; plants also act as energy filters by cleaning and improving air quality. Moreover, it propels us to open curtains or blinds to invite the sunshine, the bright beneficial light, to energize and filter the room of unwanted negative energy.

Fragrance to delight the senses:

Here, a caution is warranted as we live in an age where some people have serious sensitivity to certain artificially made scents, sprays, mists, colognes or perfumes. One thing is for certain, bad odours and smells do beget negative moods; whereas memorable ones (like mom’s cooking or clean laundry) and pleasant, heavenly scents, uplift the spirits and make one function more effectively.

Bear in mind however, depending on the individual’s preference and life experience, certain aromas and ointments can either be pleasant or repulsive and detestable. Use common sense before striving to conceal those pesky, persistent odors while concurrently clearing away negative energies through the use of readily available store bought oils, sprays or catchy gismos.

For the superstitious, there are also these options available:


Regardless of race and creed, a typical process for cleansing space of negative energy uses: incense sticks, containers with lit incense within, lit candles, or bundled up dry herb leaves that are smoldering and releasing smoke. The smoke is the key factor here, believed to be responsible for cleansing the adverse negative energies. Carry the smoldering smoke throughout a home, business, special abode, holy building or sacred grounds. In cleansing your home, once you’ve reached the stopping point, then you can open a window to allow all the negativity to flow out.

Use of Crystals:

Obsidian and black tourmaline are two of many crystals that are used in absorbing negativity. Place these in spaces requiring cleansing; in particular, around electronics that are known to foster disruptive, chaotic energy.
