Do not wait for someone else.
Lightness is really so attractive.
Particularly in these grey times.
Not a bad way to find what you are looking for either.
Everyone responds to light.
Be light and love.
Men have problems showing these things so lead the way please!

No denying life is tough on women's figures.
Women so often struggle to keep a shape they are happy with
All the diets in the world have been tried
Still the figure is not the shape you want.
Then maybe time to be honest and admit that you will eat what you shouldn't from time to time.
Trick is not to binge, not to go too far.
And this ladies is what you tend to do, go too far.
Eating that extra bite.
Stop it the regret afterwards is not worth it.
No extra bite just a few bites of sin are enough!

It is likely that possible terror in the air will bring far reaching changes to air travel.
It is likely that global warming will bring changes to holiday patterns.
It is likely that changes to the world economy will bring changes to business.
And in all the above what can you do?
Your understanding of these changes can make your life easier or more difficult.
For many do nothing is the choice, just wait until something forces change upon them.
For others it is time to initiate changes in thinking.
Look at your thoughts about vacation, travel and work.
Are you avoiding stress or are you staying in it?
In a world of increasing change move before you are forced to it's easier.
Not to mention that it feels better when we initiate actions rather than have them forced upon us.

Might even call it repetitions.
Life that is, just endless day after day.
Can get boring.
Can lose it's zest.
You are the one who decides.
Do you find each day new or just the same old repetitions?
Decide to find something new in all the things you do each day.
Notice cleaning your teeth, putting on make up, eating and drinking.
Taste, savour each experience.
Go further really be conscious of every minute.
Bet you can't.
We get into so many bad habits.
Our minds on something else we hardly notice what we are doing.
Bring consciousness back into those repetitions.
Smile while you do them.
After all they are the reality of our lives.
Life is repetition in fact truth be known lives are also repetitions!

The Book of Enoch was unknown to Europe for a thousand years, when Bruce found in Abyssinia some copies of it in Ethiopic;
- it was translated by Archbishop Laurence in 1821, from the text in the Bodleian Library, Oxford.
This accounts for the unwillingness of the reverend librarians to publish the Ethiopian text of the Book of Enoch.
Because there are fifty-seven verses from various parts of the Gospels and acts, with parallel passages from the Book of Enoch.
The Book of Enoch in its present form is simply a transcript - with numerous pre-Christian and post-Christian additions and interpolations - from far older texts.
The bible is filled with stories from pagan times many word for word.

Many things in our lives are better approached with patience.
So often we do not show this.
Impatience often leads us into trouble.
When we do not manifest patience we usually set in motion frustration, anger, stress so many negative things.
When we accept what is and learn to blank our emotions things go so much better.
Notice patience leads to calmness and better peace of mind.
Learn patience because over the course of a lifetime it's a really sound investment.
Oh yes and it also slows deterioration in your immune system and that's pretty neat too.

Often we do not realise that we have been given a second chance.
In our lives we wonder about our decisions with partners.
Partners we could have had.
Partners we didn't have.
Partners we might have had.
Partners we should have had
Nothing can help, they are gone.
Just a dream, another I wish, I could have had.
Today is your experience and if you want to improve anything then do it today.
Want another partner then start actions today.
There is no way you can have your second chance or even recognise it if all your energy is still focused on what if or I could have had.
Keep your focus on now and make changes now if that is what you want.
This is your second chance now not in fantasies about what might or could have been.
We create our second chances by our actions today.
Work towards your second chance based on the greater knowledge you have today.

As we said find the causes that trigger our outbursts.
They rest in our fears, and these are not easily found.
Because they are deep down.
Some clues though.
"I am not good enough".
"I am not lovable".
"Nobody likes me".
These thoughts have been with you since early childhood.
You adopted your life strategy around this idea or worry.
We adopt such strategies because we need to survive when we feel attacked.
By adopting this strategy we learn to avoid pain, conflict and make our way through life.So for sure our fears are buried deeply.
You will probably need help to be honest with yourself and get at them.
Start looking now though.
What is your life strategy?
Who knows you well enough to help you get at your fears?
Not easy but if you do not try then nature will force you at some point.
Those moments of madness will continue
Better be pro-active.

Thousands of Iraqis and American Servicemen have come into contact with Depleted Uranium and experienced radiation poisoning.
Many are now sick.
It has nothing to do with Depleted Uranium say various official bodies.
Those who are sick know differently.
They try to fight the machine.
They do not have much success.
The machine is too powerful to fight
The machine is often beyond the law.
People of the machine know this.
Mark well though one day it could be you.
Because we are all outside somebody's machine.
Next time it could be you fighting for justice.
So if you are denying the effects of Depleted Uranium then think twice.

Was a time when people talked to each other just for the pleasure.
Was a time when people knew each other.
Was a time when people made time to meet each other.
Today changing patterns.
No time for pleasure talking.
Just images, no flesh.
Everything becoming virrtual.
Not good, not bad just how it is.
How virtual is your world?
Put people back into your life.
Make sure your life is balanced.
For our health we all need human contact.
Virtual is just that virtual.

No one wants to remember pain and discomfort.
Which is why most women do not remember when their cycle comes along.
Men please note if you want harmony in your life then you keep a track of events.
It's a little thing to do however the reward can be greater than the effort.
Give everyone a break!

That person who has a wide and deep-reaching character and much force will feel the operation of a greater quantity of karma than a weaker person.
'Second -- that karma which we are now making or storing up by our thoughts and acts, and which will operate in the future when the appropriate body, mind, and environment are taken up by the incarnating Ego in some other life, or whenever obstructive karma is removed. . . .
'Third -- that karma which has begun to produce results.
It is the operating now in this life on us of causes set up in previous lives in company with other Egos.
And it is in operation because, being most adapted to the family stock, the individual body, astral body, and race tendencies of the present incarnation, it exhibits itself plainly, while other unexpended karma awaits its regular turn.
'These three classes of karma govern men, animals, worlds, and periods of evolution. . . . Karmic causes operate upon man in his mental and intellectual nature, in his psychical or soul nature, and in his body and circumstances. . . .
And just as all these phases of the law of karma have sway over the individual man, so they similarly operate upon races, nations, and families. . . .
'With reincarnation the doctrine of karma explains the misery and suffering of the world, and no room is left to accuse Nature of injustice. . . .
Individual unhappiness in any life is thus explained: (a) It is punishment for evil done in past lives; or (b) it is discipline taken up by the Ego for the purpose of eliminating defects or acquiring fortitude and sympathy. . . .
Happiness is explained in the same way: the result of prior lives of goodness.
'The scientific and self-compelling basis for right ethics is found in these and in no other doctrines.' (Ocean 100-9)

Meaning after a period of life difficulty.
After feeling out of sorts.
After feeling down and depressed.
Then we come up and feel more cheerful again.
Forget everything until the next time.
It is very human to do this and yet not very helpful.
Simply because when the next time comes along you go through the same stuff because you did not take the time to learn anything.
Observe while you are down what you are feeling.
Make a note, jot it down.
So that when you come out of it and want to forget there is that little note waiting to remind you what went on.
Then go through it from a-z and see if you can see what was happening.
Talk about it with anyone who can help.
Anyone who was involved.
Why did you go down?
What triggered the feeling?
How can you get this feeling out?
Move on, learn so that you can take steps to avoid the same pain again.
Must be smarter than ignoring it.

There has always been terror on planet earth.
It is not new.
Different forms of terror come and go.
Because of global mass media we are more aware of it than a few years back.
Given this a personal position is helpful.
If you can fight it or wish to become involved in fighting it fine do so.
If you wish to get on with your life without getting involved then best if you are at ease with yourself.
Remember terror works because of it's ongoing uncertainty.
The casual abuse of life.
Accept that if it is your karma to experience this then you will
Therefore let go of your fears and enjoy the beauty of life.
Live each day without fear of random terror.
Terror is always here and you need not feed it through your fear.

Violence in movies.
Violence on TV.
Violence in the media.
Over time watching so much violence has an effect.
It increases our fear levels.
Apart from this it boosts our negative energy.
Increasing negative energy is not smart.
Anyway you look at it watching violence is not helpful.
Stop watching violence.

It is you and you alone who is responsible for your life and what happens to you.
Not your partner.
Not your mother.
Not your friends.
So be clear with your self.
You would be amazed how many people are not clear with themselves.
Are you one of these?
Stop the stories
Stop the projections.
Check with friends what they see.
Sort out reality from projection.
Let go of illusion.
Be clear it is a start to a more conscious life.
A life where we accept responsibility for ourselves.

Nature is demanding that we change.
This is not just the unusual weather.
This applies to your life too.
Notice things are not as they were.
Pressure is there all the time.
No one escapes, so it is up to you adjust.
Go with change learn to let go.
Change will be with us all our lives from here on in.
Times are not as they were.
Learn to live with bad news each day every day.
Learn to let it go.
Learn to find peace of mind in an insane world
Yes a world where we kill each other is insane.
Learn to find the love in you.
If you do not then your fears will consume you.
Love is literally the only way.

How do you spend your time?
You can listen to inane DJ's.
Learn a language.
Talk endlessly on your mobile phone.
Put your make up on.
Listen to sports news.
Alternatively you could try to learn how to control your mind.
And why would you want to do this?
Because it helps reduce stress.
It chills you out.
So to start doing this, turn off the radio, cell phone and other distractions.
Relax your gaze. while putting your driving on autopilot.
Now hear your own breathing.
To yourself say in on the in breathe and out on the out breath.
Any time your thoughts drift off bring them back.
Anytime your mind interrupts you tell it to leave you alone.
Do this for five minutes or so per day without fail.
If you do this irregularly then your mind will not believe that you are serious.
If you stick with it then one day you will find that you are not thinking.
Once you know this is possible then practice in other places too.
Expand the time you can control your thoughts.
Go into this mode whenever under pressure.
Not easy, takes time, maybe months or more likely years.
However the pay back is for life.
In fact it is your life.
A better life, less stress.

Yes it is true 10 good things equals 1 bad.
How we feel sometimes when our partner gets upset over some little thing and goes on and on, doubling the alleged offence with every sentence.
What about all those good things that we've done then?
No matter this thing here was wrong, bad, thoughtless, clumsy, careless.
Yes, it probably was, and so?
Whoops don't go down that road it is very dangerous because what is going on has often nothing to do with the incident.
It has to do with feelings.
Yup, men often focus on the event and women the attitude, feelings.
So walk carefully around issues that become serious in no time at all.
Because the good things do not count when your partner wants you to be guilty.
10 = 1 in fact.

There was a time when you had to do something to become famous.
People like Paris Hilton with no discern-able talent are famous today.
A life devoted to promoting self.
Nothing else exists just the shallow exterior.
Lesson for the rest of us?
Observe and smile that the court jester is still with us.
Every generation needs some light relief.
Even if it is ever more tacky and desperate.

Many places are transformed by leaves.
Do you ever pay attention to leaves or are they just there for you?
If you do notice them then observe how many are under attack.
Leaves during their lives are attacked by so many animals and insects not to mention human actions.
This year they are also under attack by the weather in many places.
For how long will we have the trees we know?
As global warming continues many trees must die.
What about leaves then?
Enjoy the leaves they make our environment so beautiful.
Appreciate the colour and texture of leaves.

Are you one of these people who cannot make up their minds?
If not then maybe you know some who are indecisive.
Just an idea for today.
Indecision and insecurity come from several sources one of which is not knowing yourself.
If you are clear about yourself then decision making is easier.
So start learning about yourself.
We are all responsible for ourselves so time to take responsibility for yourself.
Be clear today about what you are doing.
Notice your choices, check that you truly want whatever it is.
Build an inventory of yourself.
What you like, what you do not like.
Be honest is it habit or because you truly like it?
Get rid of those where it is habit.
Hold only those you truly like.
This is just step one of learning to know yourself.
Having said that it will still take some time.
So do not give up.
The rewards of being clearer with yourself are worth it.

The idea of Stallone, Willis, Schwartzenneger and other macho types as heroes or role models seems like a throwback to another era.
What woman in her right mind would want a psychopathic killer as a friend, let alone partner.
Yet this is what Hollywood keeps giving us.
However it does raise an interesting question, is there such a thing today as a male role model?
Most men presented for this position are one or two dimensional types and surely fail when we go beyond the media hype.
Can it be that we are tired of the current values and the rubbish thrown up?
Let us look in different places then maybe we can find some more interesting males.
Who knows we might even find a role model.
Or then again maybe we have had enough of the illusion of perfection.
Better no more role models.

Both justify their actions.
Both blame the other.
Like children arguing.
Unfortunately for the world and the victims their arguing matters.
It is hard to get them to listen.
Seldom in any modern conflict do the majority want anything other than peace.
Only the arms manufacturers and fanatics win.
Slowly but surely the public disgust with politics is making other voices heard.
Something is moving, something is shifting opinion.
That something is our disgust.
Our desire that this insanity stop.
Do you have an opinion?
Do you voice your views?
Hold clearly to what you think.
Thoughts help, they lead to actions.
Voice your thoughts.

And still we do not want to hear or believe.
The relationship is over.
Our friends all see.
The signs tell us.
Things do not compute.
Until it is our time we go on denying the evidence.
Day after day ignoring reality.
Why do we do this?
Crudely put we do not want to remove our projections.
We want to stay in our illusions.
To guard our fabrications to the end.
Emptiness, until we build another.
There is another way.
Live in reality.
See things as they are, not as you want them to be.
Less disappointment, more relaxation, less stress.
We said it before and it's still true.
Reality is easier than all the projections we insist on fabricating.

It is thoroughly understood and proven, as shown by Nachmanides, that the initial sentence in Genesis was made to read;
"In the head-source developed the Gods, the heavens and the earth"
Whereas it is now transformed into -
"In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth"
Which, has lead to our confused misunderstandings today.
Saturday, August 05, 2006
Being right is often the defense mechanism of people who have complexes.
Being right is often wrong for the simple reason that the one being right is judgemental from his or her perspective only.
We all have perspectives so being right is a relative thing at best.
However it does give the judgemental party the illusion that all is well, because he is right..........as he sees it.
How many people do you know who need to be right?
Tread carefully with them because being right is often one step away from action to censure or attack those who are not right in their eyes.
Step aside, let them be.
It is not funny spending time with righteous people.
Move on, find friendship with those who are not judgemental.
Friday, August 04, 2006
As far as your private conclusions are concerned, use your discrimination always.
Do not adopt any conclusions merely because they are uttered by one in whom you have confidence.
Only adopt them when they coincide with your intuition.
To be even unconsciously deluded by the influence of another is to have a counterfeit faith.

The evidence is in front of us global warming is real.
So why fly down South where it is getting ever hotter?
Do not wait to be told, adjust your thinking.
Better go to a cooler place.
Who needs over priced, over crowded beaches in the South?
Go North, go to the hills.
Change your habits don't wait to be told.
Act upon the evidence of our times.
Life is no longer as it was, notice this.
Make new decisions based on new realities.

If you have not noticed things are hotting up in all senses of that word.
We are close or at what is called the "tipping point" for many things
The Amazon rain forest, shown above - continued tree felling - changing local climate
The Mekong delta - misuse and abuse
The Gulf stream - slowing down - reduced salinity
Disappearance of species, everywhere from ocean to mountain to your country
Yes even where you live, your town your street.
Your own quality of life even.
This blog will urge that we all do our individual bit to slow this process.
Because it is the right thing to do, and also allows us to psychologically feel OK with ourselves.
More than this though is how you see life.
Because if you see life as a one off random experience then does it really matter?
Stay selfish consume all you want behave like it is nothing to do with you.
If you have been telling yourself that life is a one off experience in a meaningless universe then how come something keeps nagging at you?
Stop being lazy, look into these things for yourself.
Do not blindly accept what your parents or priests told you, find out for yourself.
If however you believe in reincarnation then yes it matters.
So the environment is not just under attack it is how we see our lives.
It really is how we see our lives and why we think we are here
How do you see yours?
Are you involved?
Make wise choices.

Knowledge - the first step to which is the power of comprehending the truth.
Of discerning the real from the false.
Is for those only who having freed themselves from every prejudice and conquered their human conceit and selfishness:
Are ready to accept every and any truth, once it is demonstrated to them.
Of such there are very few.
