ANAM CARA . . . A PATHWAY TO CREATING CERTAINTY IN AN UNCERTAIN WORLD: GLENVILLE ASHBY, Ph.D.

“Anam Cara” is derived from the Gaelic language. “Anam” is the Gaelic word for “soul” and “Cara” is the Gaelic word for “friend”. An “Anam Cara” is a “Soul Friend”. So, what is a “Soul Friend”? Let’s look at your life. Has there been one person in your life - at some point in your life -- whom you instinctively trusted? Do you remember feeling comfortable and safe with this person – so comfortable and so safe that you allowed yourself to stand in front of this person – spiritually, psychologically, and emotionally naked? This instinctively and natural feeling of comfort, security, and trust moved you to unmask yourself. You could be yourself around this person – the real person that you are when no one is around. With this person there was no need to mask your frailties and vulnerabilities. This person accepted you for Y-O-U. When in their presence, you no longer felt the need to act strong or brave. Gone was the need to always be “right” about everythin…

A PSYCHOLOGICALLY AND EMOTIONALLY LIMPING FATHER TRYING TO RAISE A FAMILY IN A FOREIGN LAND: MR. LETHUKUTHULA NKOMO

"Remember, remember always, that all of us, and you and I especially, are descended from immigrants and revolutionists."
Franklin D. Roosevelt


I worked in big retail shops in South Africa for 10 years. I worked with many young men coming from, or born of parents coming from my country of birth -- Zimbabwe.Currently, I am working with a young man whose parents hail from my country. He was born in Zimbabwe 23 years ago.His father is alive but he hasn't met him in person. His father is said to have migrated to the United Kingdom. Most, if not all, of these young boys I have worked with have one thing in common: they were brought up either by their single mothers or by their grandparents.


In the early to mid 70s the Black revolutionary parties decided to engage the colonial governments through violent means in the Southern African regions as a way to coerce them to seriously consider their demands for democracy or majority rule/government. Many young people, especially men, wer…

LOVE IS IT! : MR. CARRY GREAVES

Love is powerful! Love is secure within itself. Love never abandons. Love is the truth. Love is inextinguishable. Out of love comes peace and a life worth living. But love never dies. So the probability for love to grow increases exponentially when you love yourself more each day.

Love is to act and not to love is to surrender one’s life. There is no sedative for love but to continue to love from the heart. Again, love is powerful. Love is secure. So when you are loved, you become nourished. And when you love, you become the nourisher. You love, therefore, you live. And with love comes healing.

Love is the gateway to all possibilities. Love is freedom. But if you don’t know the value of love, you will wind up losing it. Love is the journey, not the end result. Love is the rhythm of the present. So sing your song. Dance your dance. To love, offsets the hate that surrounds you and allows you to see things for the way they are and not what they appear to b…

THE EVIL OF GOODNESS: JEROME TEELUCKSINGH, Ph.D.

I am neither a theologian nor a philosopher but often wonder: What constitutes good and evil, positive or negative? What manner of persons would belong in these categories of moral and immoral? There is an obvious dichotomy and we live in a seemingly binary world but many do not acknowledge or are oblivious to the acceptance of the many shades of evil and goodness.

Should the State (government) decide what is right and wrong or should each citizen make that decision? Likewise, would a secular government possess the authority to eradicate or change religious practices or customs?

If the moral choice of an individual conflicts with that of the government, what should be the option or penalty? The individual’s freedom is important in a democracy and a democratically elected government also has a vital role.

In 2016, there were 462 murders in Trinidad and Tobago. This is a relatively high number in a small population of approximately 1.4 million persons. It is eas…

RESURRECTING A LEGACY . . . SAVING OUR SONS

It was not supposed to be this way. Or so I thought. When I looked at the future, I saw myself working behind the scenes helping my mentor, L.T. Henry transform his vision of a world in which Men who were Fathers from all walks of life began working together, sharing information, supporting one another, and freely talking about issues directly and indirectly related to raising children — the village’s “heart soul’ — it’s bridge to the future. A classically trained jazz musician who performed briefly with The Philadelphia Orchestra; a former drummer for internationally acclaimed songstress and television and film actress Ms. Della Reese; author; photojournalist; and sales and success motivation trainer; L.T. Henry or “L.T.” as he was affectionately referred to by the souls whose lives he positively transformed, shared with me his vision for the world — IN SEARCH OF FATHERHOOD®. I was one of the many fortunate souls with whom L.T. shared his wisdom and invested his time and energy. He t…
