Themes of Authenticity, Virtue, and Discernment to Living a Personally Significant Life Yolanda Lara Regis University September 7, 2014 I will be discussing on how to living a personally significant life through Authenticity, Virtue and Discernment. Authenticity can mean different thing to different people. The needs of one’s inner being are different, subjective and often culture bound. Some people base their actions on external pressures – the pressure to appear to be a certain kind of person, the pressure to adopt a particular mode of living, the pressures to ignore one’s own moral objective in order to have a more comfortable existence. In reading “The Martyrdom of Perpetua”, she was willing to sacrifice her life for her faith, even if it went against her father wishes.
Recommendations for obtaining information are among others: To see really what is there through the attitudes and perceptions, asking via a third party, and that could be by the form of triangulating, even changing the setting, because the degree of openness in communication is often based on the context, other option is to explain background and context or to add background to your requests, showing genuine interest and demonstrating very clearly the level of you interest or depth of your concern to be taken seriously, showing precedent because the past is as important in the future for many countries, probing politely but persistently your experience or the experience of others, never underestimate the persistent repetition of a question or similar type of questions, sometimes even rephrase the request, in order to really know whether you are getting your request made, and clarify and confirm, sending a follow up confirmation in writing will always help you certify that there’s an agreement. In evaluating people you can find hazards from the local perspective such as: Sharing information about individual performance is limited or distorted by people in key roles, poor business results are attributed to the
This was because both characters had alike longings to be in a different time period where they did not find satisfaction and happiness within the present. Chronologically, after depicting background and catalyst, then the development and insight to the journey, the understanding and knowledge accomplished is then reached through the differences of the two characters Inez and Adriana. Although Adriana is the persona that Gil desires, the association within the imaginative journey allows him to finally reach the outcome of understanding that he must live in the present as each time era has its own concealed and approached issues. By featuring these characters, the sequential structure of a journey is presented, outlining the fundamental ideas of timeless topics of question, which then suggests the foundational theme of
The nature of discovery entails a journey that is transformative and concerns one’s relationship with one’s self or one’s world. Discoveries can be either sought or accidental, these discoveries can lead to good or bad consequences, but ultimately they are all concerned with the acquisition of greater knowledge and a new perspective. In William Shakespeare’s The Tempest, Prospero comes to realise not only the limitations of his magic, but also the importance of love and redemption in redefining one’s place in the world, as well as one’s view of it. While in Wilfred Owen’s poem ‘dulce et decorum est’ it is the audience that is discover new notions and the actual reality of war. In ‘The Tempest’ Prospero undergoes a vast discovery that takes 12 years to materialise, Prospero’s discovery is that of the liberating and redemptive power of forgiveness in the face of man’s inhumanity towards man, in contrast with the normal notion of revenge over forgiveness.
Exploring the concept and significance of belonging broadens and deepens an individual’s understanding of themselves and their world and others by the by introducing the individual to different kinds of belonging such as belonging to a place, friendship group, family or thing, or being ostracized, being ostracized due to irreconcilable differences, cultural barriers, or simply just choosing not to belong. Texts such as Peter Skrzynecki’s poems “St Patrick’s College” and “10 Mary Street “ and Jodi Picout’s novel “Nineteen Minutes” all demonstrate different aspects of belonging that can assist individuals in further deepening their understanding of belonging. Not belonging is a common theme among Skrzynecki’s poems, can be used as a prime tool to expand one's understanding of themselves. This theme reoccurs in the poem “St Patricks College”. The persona attended the
Belonging is an ambiguous concept which can offer individuals a sense of identity, security and connectedness. Experiences of belonging are closely related to a person’s interaction with others, as positive experiences can enrich their sense of belonging, and negative experiences can limit their sense of belonging. An individual’s limited experience of belonging through their inability to positively interact with others can often incite them to reject the majority through acts of defiance, self-alienation and rebellion. This notion of belonging/not belonging, acceptance/identity and choosing not to belong, is extensively explored within Peter Skrzynecki’s poem, St. Patrick’s College, from the anthology Immigrant Chronicle. The poem begins with Peter’s mother longing for him to belong and be accepted into society.
The Deeper Story How do people know about “setting and symbol” in a story? In this essay, I am going to introduce some of them to you. “Setting” can have many different meanings.

This can be confusing and can also have a profound effect on the opinion of those who depend on statistical data for evidence. By using potentially deceiving data it is possible for the writer to convince the reader to agree with their opinion. This will ultimately depend on what the writer’s initial motives are, and these motives will consist of a ‘for’ and ‘against’ strategy but can also have a diplomatic approach. There is a variety of explanations to suggest why migrants want to inhabit the UK. These reasons may be because of family or friend connections, a better standard of living, education, better job prospects or maybe they are unfortunately trying to escape poverty, trauma or even political dispute.
English Essay “The expectation is that the journey will provide something new” (Enlightenment and moral development) Paragraph 1 (Introduction)- The expectation of a journey is that the traveller will encouter obstacles,challenges and opportunities, as the traveller experience these they could extend themselves physically, emotionally and spiritually. However, it is these obstacles and challenges that lights up the traveller’s mind and interpret the meaning of providing something new. As the new represents one’s spiritual enlightenment and moral development. Therefore it is for this reason I believe more than anything that “the expectation of a journey is to provide something new”. This is encapsulated by the texts: The Town Where Time Stands Still (by Shirley Geok-Lin Lim) and Adventure of Huckleberry Finn (by Mark Twain).
