Focus on your own sins...

Fear and the shame of admitting one’s own sins leads to pointing fingers and accusing others rather than recognising one’s own faults.

We sometimes become policemen of other people and we fail to see how weak our very selves are. Just sort out your own issues, don't become so holy than thou...

If you find out that you are good in that area, know that some are still struggling, help them rather than condemn them.

“It’s difficult to admit being guilty, but it does so much good to confess with sincerity. But you must confess your own sins”.

Pope Francis wants us to confront our own selves and condemn our very selves not of others.

Don't carry someone else to your confession. Not your children,  husband, wife, mother-in-law, or any other persons alongside.

The Pope continues with the following episode:
“I remember a story an old missionary would tell about a woman who went to confession and she began by telling her husband’s faults, then went on to her m…

WHEN THE ROAD IS TOO STRAIGHT, THINK TWICE

You can have flaws, be anxious, and even be angry, but do not forget that your life is the greatest enterprise in the world. Only you can stop it from going off road.

Many appreciate you, admire you and love you. Remember that to be happy is not to have a sky without a storm, a road without accidents, work without fatigue, relationships without disappointments.

To be happy is to find strength in forgiveness, hope in battles, security in the stage of fear, love in discord. It is not only to enjoy the smile, but also to reflect on the sadness.

It is not only to celebrate the successes, but to learn lessons from the failures. It is not only to feel happy with the applause, but to be happy in anonymity.

Being happy is not a fatality of destiny, but an achievement for those who can travel within themselves.

To be happy is to stop feeling like a victim and become your destiny's author.

It is to cross deserts, yet to be able to find an oasis in the depths of our soul. It is to thank God…

DO YOU HAVE A HEAD AND HEART TO DARE TO BE DIFFERENT IN 2018?

MAKING GREAT CHOICES: Learning to use your head and heart.                             (Chukua control wewe mwenyewe)
We are all warming up to enter the new year and excited to see the year 2018. We need to build a foundation, and a strong one that can help us survive through the year. 
We need to have an ambitious vision of the future, and stand for values that are not for sale. We need to create an enduring core but also be prepared to change everything else. We need to preserve the core and stimulate inner progress. 
There should be something to incite us lest we become immuned and simply indifferent.  If you have no core principles, you will fail, more so if you are not apart of changing the world around you. How do we make this decisions in 2018?
You need to set a tool of engagement and operation of doing things, amidst the dilemma we have to resolve. So instead of looking outside ourselves for answers in bookstores shelves when we face major decisions. We have to learn to look insid…

Trailing our clouds of childhood in Baby Jesus

Meatai ntorrno nemeata nkiting'oto- There is no evil that has no end                                                 (Samburu saying- Kenya)
We are all going to participate in the Christmas festivities and celebration of Christmas Mass and we have all if not the majority are decorating their houses, homes and habitations with Christmas trees, cribs, lightings and making a complete overhaul in our respective houses.
Very interesting image passed over my mind that I felt I need to share with you as my Christmas thought, as you do what you are interested in doing at this moment of holidays. The image was that of looking into the baby’s eyes and seeing the joy and delight which can be found in that baby, for me that baby is baby Jesus (Divine baby jesus). 
I hope you will be able to like it as you decorate your christmas tree. Give a flash back to your own childhood, you saw the brightness of life, opened up to people and trusted, at the centre of your own universe.You felt free to expre…

THE DEVIL IS IN THE DETAILS

EDUCATION WITHOUT GOD PRODUCES CLEVER DEVILS. Boy child has been checked as in a chess game...as the king runs out of one step movement, he surrenders and  we call that check!!!game over, close the chess board.
Get the boy child out of class or school and you tilt the scale of insecurity, lawlessness, and unarrests. Why are many young people, simply evaporating into the air...what becomes of them, do they come back in form of "rain" with hailstone to start pounding us up.
Even that girl child is put on high alert because the security risk is upgraded to very volatile.
If the boy child is not taken care of, someone else will make use of him, not in the way we know as a society of giving back to the society but breaking up the society in a very peculiar way, beyond human imagination.
It looks to me, there is someone militarizing our education system. Don't be surprised to hear that after Form Four, a compulsory one year enrollment into NYS. The government is good at misus…

EDUCATION IS SHAPED BY REAL MOTHERS AT WORK.

Pope Benedict addresses Teachers and Religious
Chapel of St Mary’s University College, Twickenham, Friday, 17 September
Your Excellency the Secretary of State for Education, Bishop Stack, Dr Naylor, Reverend Fathers, Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
I am pleased to have this opportunity to pay tribute to the outstanding contribution made by religious men and women in this land to the noble task of education. 
I thank the young people for their fine singing, and I thank Sister Teresa for her words. To her and to all the dedicated men and women who devote their lives to teaching the young, I want to express sentiments of deep appreciation. 
You form new generations not only in knowledge of the faith, but in every aspect of what it means to live as mature and responsible citizens in today’s world.
As you know, the task of a teacher is not simply to impart information or to provide training in skills intended to deliver some economic benefit to society; education is not and must never be …

CHANGING THE WAY YOU RESPOND TO CRITICISM

Today some of us are finding ourselves in an open market of rapid interactions and releases of messages on Facebook platform, that we are caught in between hit and run attitudes, intellectual terrorism and the whole reality of fake news,(Alternative truth), where someone seats behind the keyboard of his laptop, cellphone, and literally does a lot of "bombing activations", "grenade" throwing and attacks in the net, through what we call "let the fingers do the walking".
Many of us have closed their facebook, twitter, and social media accounts or simply switched off that world of social media. They have chickened out. Is that a solution? maybe, maybe not for a short while or temporal solution who knows.
The internet and social media is here and it looks like every day new approaches and means of delivering news, agenda depending on what you are planning and inventing easier ways of communicating inter and intra the global village.
Some of us have built on in…
