In Melbourne where I am most safe and feel most comfortable, it’s easy to be at peace.

Being at peace, accepting and non-judgemental is really difficult so now I need to learn to be in a state of surrender …. accepting untenable things as if I chose them and allowing all the negative emotions to dissipate. Thus enabling wisdom to prevail and to remind me the problem exists only in my mind,Continue reading “In Melbourne where I am most safe and feel most comfortable, it’s easy to be at peace.”

Time to appreciate what we no longer have is what we want when people are gone, we’re away from home, an event is over or we’re facing our own mortality.

I used to waste a lot of time thinking about useless nonsense, feeling persecuted, resenting and loathing the very things I wish I could have back. Appreciate everything you do with love, even your mistakes and the mistakes of others, living each moment as if it’s your last because in time, it will be.

I’ve been advised that i need to be selfish with my time and focus on myself and those people are right, except that ….

R U OK exists because an ordinary 16 year old man Jamie, asked an ordinary man about to jump off a bridge, an ordinary question … “Are you OK?” An extraordinary campaign was launched that saves people’s lives. Ironically, the people who advised me to be selfish are people I’ve helped. I guarantee if IContinue reading “I’ve been advised that i need to be selfish with my time and focus on myself and those people are right, except that ….”

COVID19 has enabled me to connect to people on an unprecedented scale … some people lost everything and some people gained something. 

I gained new friends and the capacity to communicate with people of all ages,  nationalities, creeds and religions …. 7.8 billion stories to tell, minus 2.

CoVID19 is a tangible threat that forced humanity together in isolation.

Thought forms have caused more devastation and unnecessary loss of life, livelihoods, infrastructure, environmental damage and fear than any human pandemic. Have we learnt nothing in the past 2 months?

At some point you need to decide, do I stay and wonder what if or do I live!

What we do now determines our future, if you do nothing, nothing happens.

I was recently accused of being like Eckhart Tolle, simple ….. which is a compliment as we both live without fear. If that was so simple to do then why is it so difficult to achieve?

The answer is simple …. People mentally practise being afraid by the stories they constantly reinforce, creating a complex drama of pain and discomfit. Being clever means the stories are more elaborate and it’s usually more difficult to find a solution. I’m constantly unravelling the intricate web of mental attachments to thoughts, ideals and problems.Continue reading “I was recently accused of being like Eckhart Tolle, simple ….. which is a compliment as we both live without fear.

If ever you want to know how well you’re going with presence practise, watch what happens when a problem arises.

I would love to take credit for all that I create but I am heavily influenced by Eckhart Tolle.

Eckhart Tolle says that all creativity stems from consciousness or a state of no mind, which is when the thinking mind ceases to operate. Almost as soon as I finish, I have no memory of what of what I’ve written. Either that or I need to work on improving my memory. Yes I am exceptionallyContinue reading “I would love to take credit for all that I create but I am heavily influenced by Eckhart Tolle.”
