What do you celebrate on 25 December?
Christmas is one of the biggest feasts. I am a Catholic and on this day I celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. God the Father sent His Son to earth so that Jesus Christ - the second Person of the Trinity - would save people. Jesus on earth did the will of His Father and died on the cross giving us salvation; Jesus reconciled us with God the Father.
What is psychology and why is it an important area of study?
I have just started reading Abraham P. Sperling's book "Psychology". I consider it as one of the most important books in my life. It contains a glossary in which the term 'psychology' is defined. Psychology is the science of individual behaviour and experience. It is useful to know why we behave in a certain way.
The most important things in life.
What are the most important things in life? In my opinion, these are: having a clear conscience, feeling and being sure that you are an honest person, and it is also important to be honest, to have a passion for life, to enjoy everyday life, not to compete with others but with yourself. Faith, hope and love are very important, too. Sense of happiness is also important.
Spiritual development: we are not just a body, we have a soul and a spirit.
A human being is not just a body, I believe strongly in the teachings of the Catholic Church, I am a Catholic. I believe in having a body, spirit and soul. My soul is immortal, after earthly life there is eternal life, which God wants to give to His children. God is merciful, we will soon celebrate Christmas, the commemoration of the sending of Jesus Christ to earth.
Some excerpts from my third book entitled “A cure for anxiety. How to work through anxiety and start living peacefully?”
In chapter one, I outline what anxiety, worry and fear are (among other things, I give their definitions). In chapter two, I describe the negative sides of living with anxieties and fears. In chapter three, I give reasons for getting rid of most (or all) fears. In chapter four, I introduce ideas related to fears and describe how to do practical exercises to 'work through' fears in order to deal with them effectively
A few paragraphs on anxiety (from my third book).
As a consequence of human fears, we can observe the following negative attitudes.
“Rejoice always in the Lord; once again I repeat: rejoice!” (Phil 4:4)
We are children of God, let us rejoice always and rejoice in the Lord. It is HE who created us, who called us to life, who gave us talents, who gives us daily bread.
Development areas: some thoughts on the subject.
Personal development is rewarding; we do not stand still when we develop. Development can (and should) be in different areas of life. For me, it is important to develop spiritually, intellectually, professionally, emotionally, in the area of financial education.
