I really like today’s eclectic playlist. It begins with Talking Heads, moves over to Eminem, then another rapper in Luke Christopher. To the world of the musical with a track from Annie. The beautiful voice of Kane Brown is next, then the legend who is Judy Garland finishing with the sexy tones of Hot Chocolate: The Pain of the Process is Only Temporary.

So one of my accomplishments is to have Love and Respect for All, Everyone Included is part of common day language. Join me in spreading it until we meet again, my dear friends.

A scene from Bollywood features in today’s tracks, hard to believe how little we know about the world’s largest film industry. We begin with Pharrell, follow with retro Madonna, then someone new to me but not 1.7 million viewers, Queen Naija. Off to Bollywood with Shah Rukh Khan and Preity Zinta, then Roxette and Eminem and we finish with Ed Sheeran quite an eclectic mix: A Rock Musicians Career is Short-lived!!

So as always I will recommend the practice of Love and Respect for All, Everyone Included till we meet again my dear friends:

Self Care 8

 

Don’t Tell Your Problems to Everyone!!


Today we look at things you would love to tell yourself if you could travel back in Time to give your younger self some advice about life.

I came across this great list by Marc Chernoff using my write about what’s on the page I open the book too. There are quite a few sage statements, here they are:

  1. Spend more time with those who make you smile and less time with those who you feel pressured to Impress.
  2. Your health is your life. Keep up with it. Get an annual physical check-up.
  3. Laugh at stupid jokes. Apologise. Tell someone how much they mean to you. It’s the small moments that make life good.
  4. Living a life of honesty creates peace of mind, and peace of mind is priceless. Period. Don’t be dishonest and don’t put up with people who are.
  5. Life is much more enjoyable when you stop trying to be cool and simply focus on being yourself.
  6. Forgiving yourself is far more important (and difficult) than getting others to forgive you.
  7. Complaining is like slapping yourself for slapping yourself. It doesn’t solve the problem, It just hurts you more.
  8. There are few joys in life that equal a good conversation, A good read, A good walk, A good hug, A good smile, A good friend.
  9. Learn to adjust the sails of your life to unpredictable winds, while keeping your focus clearly on your destination and keep sailing until you get there.
  10. Laughter is the best medicine for stress. Laugh at yourself often. Find the humour, In whatever situation you are in.
  11. Freedom is the greatest gift. Self-sufficiency is the greatest freedom.
  12. Everything that happens in life is neither good nor bad. It just depends on your perspective.
  13. If you want something in your life you’ve never had. You’ll have to do something you’ve never done before.
  14. You’re not alone. Everyone has problems. Some people are just better at hiding them than others.

So what has the world said about life’s lessons, here are a few of my favourites:

ll1

1. How did you cope with the focus when you finished the former and left the latter. Some say the first gives you no training to handle the latter.

ll2

2. Relating to your mistakes as what lesson am I meant to learn from this ILO what went wrong is the most powerful way to get the lesson provided: Not Afraid.

ll3

3. For me, it was the times I had to enter psychiatric clinics, five times, each time you lose total control of your life.

ll4

4. It just seems so natural when you meet both of these things like you have known them your whole life: True Friend.

ll5

5. From the world’s greatest philosopher, Ms Unknown comes this famous camera analogy.

ll6.jpeg

6. The cat in the hat is such a wise creature: Hop on Pop.

ll7

7. The Shadow and the Light, we need both to be a fulfilled human being.

ll8

8. I like the last line, learn from your mistakes, but never regret: No Regrets.

ll9.jpeg

9. Part of Self Love 101.

ll10

10. It’s time to leave when the last line starts happening: Don’t Hurt Me.

ll11

11. Love the go through to voicemail line.

ll12

12. WTF is a positive deviant?: My Passion.

ll13

13. Can’t have it be boring, can we?

ll14

14. On life’s journey, remember that word: Succession: Brave.

ll16

15. And for the final lesson, the picture says it all.

Some of us run in the middle of the night. Some of us strum acoustic guitars and smoke joints. And others go to church. Or sip expensive wine. Or surf dangerous waves. or jump out of perfectly good aeroplanes. When we try to understand other people by personally relating to the things that they do, we usually can’t make any sense of it. Because it’s easier to see weirdness in a sea of normality than it is to decode the logical methods behind one’s madness. But when we look just a little deeper, by making a noble effort to understand people by truly listening to why they do the things that they do, they never seem quite as weird. Actually, they and you begin to seem, perfectly normal.

Today’s playlist is for the kids with two animations. We begin with Eminem then transform Miley Cyrus into Hannah Montana. Dr Seuss leads off our animations, then back to the sixties for The Walker Brothers. Then DJ Mustard, followed by Akcent, and we finish off with Sara Bareilles: Don’t Tell Your Problems to Everyone.

I have one important life lesson to add to your lists: Show Love and Respect to All, Everyone Included until we meet again, my dear friends:

Julia's Love

A few of my Favourite Things!!


It seems I have reached the limit of Facebook pages I can like, it’s 5,000, the same as Facebook friends you can have, But I have built a collection of my top 10 or 20 over the journey that I offer to the Booker Looker universe because I believe their posts make a difference. Some of them I have no idea how we connected and others were recommendations from friends. So I thought I would list them for you so that you have the opportunity to gain the knowledge they share across the airwaves:

  1. Nicky Hamid: Spiritual dude from New Zealand. His words are full of the most love for the planet and its occupants I have found: Link to Nicky.
  2.  Luminita Savic, AKA Purpose Fairy: Her blog on 15 Things You Should Give Up to Be Happy went viral and she now appears on stages all around the world giving her worldly advice, one of the great list makers on the net: Link to Luminita.
  3. Marc and Angel Hack Life – Practical Tips for Productive Living: After losing two very close people at an early age, Marc and Angel Chernoff began to write about the experience in a blog which has turned into their latest book becoming a New York Times bestseller, to me the most useful meme and list makers on the net.: Hack Life.
  4. Brian Johnston at Optimize: made millions in the IT industry then went to Bali to read every book worth reading. Does a six-page PDF and 20 minute audio on the big ideas from each book, For those who are time poor but love new knowledge for $10 a month you get 5 new books, best ten bucks I spend: The Books.
  5. Katherine Woodward Thomas: Katherine writes a daily mini blog on relationships and life. They are incredibly insightful, they are called Love out Loud Daily: Katherine’s link.
  6. Dane Tomas: Creator of a revolutionary clearing method called the Spiral, Dane is my go-to man on all things in regards to sexuality, you may find some of his stuff abrasive but its worth the journey: Dane Live.
  7. Amrit Sandhu: This is actually a blog called Inspired Revolution. You will not meet a man more enthusiastic about life than my friend Amrit. He interviews inspiring people who give you a lift everytime you listen. Here’s Amrit.
  8. Mastin Kipp: My version of Tony Robbins. I first came across Mastin when he had a blog called The Daily Love which used to have the best quotes and guests. He had 700,000 followers but shut it down when he realised that coaching was his true destiny: Live Your Purpose.
  9. Elephant Journal: Numerous pages on Health, humour sustainability. It costs $108 for life but is worth the investment: Elephants Pages.

So that covered Facebook and the net, but what does society say about a few of our favourite things, let’s have a look:

ft1

1. What more love can you offer in a gift than actually creating it yourself.

ft2

2, My friends who have been there said the uniqueness of its people is one of the reasons New York is their favourite place: New York, New York.

ft14

14. Education goes both ways, the student and the teacher are changed by each interaction: Teach Your Children Well.

ft15.jpeg

15. And finally, a recipe to start a few of your Favourite Things with.

In her excellent book, Love Out Loud: Contact Nicole., Nicole Gibson recalls a quote from a friend “Stand In Love, Don’t Fall In Love”, I think this sums up the power of a Few of our Favourite Things very well.

On the playlist, we return to a few previous centuries to fill in the mix today. Frank Sinatra, John Coltrane, Bob Marley and Bach lead off. Then a classic from a great OZ band, The Waifs. We finish with two artists new to me, Saint Motel and the duo Suzzy Bogguss & Kathy Mattea: A Few of My Favourite Things.

My Favourite thing is Interculturalism: So remember to show Love and Respect for All, Everyone Included until next time we meet my dear friends.

The Garden of The World has no Limits


Today is my self declared Rumi day, all the quotes will be from one person, he is Jalāl ad-Dīn Muhammad Rūmī, also known as Jalāl ad-Dīn Muhammad Balkhī, Mevlânâ/Mawlānā and Mevlevî/Mawlawī, but in the western world simply known as Rumi.

Rumi’s poetry has been captured in a number of different collections. In all, one is exposed to the manner in which Rumi demonstrates the unbridled joy that comes from living life fully while urging us always to put aside our fears and take the risk required to do so.

Rumi believed passionately in the use of music, poetry and dance as a path for reaching God. For Rumi, music helped devotees to focus their whole being on the divine and to do this so intensely that the soul was both destroyed and resurrected. It was from these ideas that the practice of whirling Dervishes developed into a ritual form. His teachings became the base for the order of the Mevlevi, which his son Sultan Walad organised. Rumi encouraged Sama, listening to music and turning or doing the sacred dance. In the Mevlevi tradition, samāʿ represents a mystical journey of spiritual ascent through mind and love to the Perfect One. In this journey, the seeker symbolically turns towards the truth, grows through love, abandons the ego, finds the truth and arrives at the Perfect. The seeker then returns from this spiritual journey, with greater maturity, to love and to be of service to the whole of creation without discrimination with regard to beliefs, races, classes and nations. And as well as this he wrote possibly the most beautiful poetry ever written on this planet from which short vignettes are taken and turned into quotes, here are my favourites:

rumi1

1. I must be in Love, I have felt like my body is disintegrating into the energy of the universe lately.

rumi2

2. Can you even think this: Ocean of Love.

rumi3.jpeg

3. From the day I was born.

rumi4

4. Time to turn the searchlight on: Find Yourself.

rumi5.jpeg

5. Quiet please, ah, there it is.

rumi6.jpeg

6. Find the others, but be responsible for your steps in life: A Road Song.

rumi7

7. It’s just a perfect day, I’m so glad I spent it with you.

rumi8.jpeg

8. Only one song for this: Because the Night.

rumi 9.jpeg

9. Remember those nights sitting watching the ocean reflect the stars and moon stoned out of your mind, I do.

rumi10.jpeg

10. I call him/her Gaia, what’s your name: Sacred Chant.

rumi11.jpeg

11. One of his best known.

rumi12

12. Today we call it Social Media: The Sounds of Silence.

rumi13.jpeg

13. Starseed Y’all.

rumi14

14. Remember to breath next time we meet, my beloved: Ring of Fire.

rumi15

15. And finally from the great man, a simple request.

No mirror ever became iron again; No bread ever became wheat; No ripened grape ever became sour fruit. Mature yourself and be secure from a change for the worse. Become the light.” What a beautiful way to help us remember to appreciate each step we take in the self-actualizing process. Remember that once you‘ve evolved to a new stage of development, you simply cannot go back to the levels you were previously at! Rejoice in that fact and appreciate your growth. Become the light.

Today’s playlist sounds like it came out of the American mid-west and or sitting next to a river. We begin with Miten and Deva, Then to Brad Paisley and the Fountains of Wayne. Possibly the best song of 1976 by Patti Smith then to the river’s edge with Mama Gaia. Two gruff voices finish it off with Tempest and Johny Cash: The Garden of the World has no Limits.

As you bliss out on Rumi and the accompanying songs, remember to share Love and Respect for All, Everyone Included until next time we meet, my dear friends.

Don’t Cut the Person to Fit the Cloth


I was in my local library returning my slightly overdue items when I saw it: The Book titled f**k it – DO WHAT YOU LOVE: Get it here, free shipping.

In this highly entertaining and motivational book, John sets out to prove that when we do what we love, we’re actually more likely to be happier, healthier, wealthier, and more successful. He addresses the significant blocks that people experience when they consider doing what they love, including: “Doing what you love is for time off, not work”, “Doing what I love would be selfish”, “I just don’t know what I love” and “I could never make a living from doing what I love”. Through no-nonsense ideas, fascinating facts and motivating calls to action, John brings us from pessimism to inspiration, so that our thoughts become powered by “F**k it, I can’t waste any more of my life”, “F**k it, I will find a way to make this work”, “F**k it, I will do what I love”.

So what is your Yes, But? here are the ones John collected from his research:

  1. Yes, but I’m afraid I’ll fail.
  2. Yes, but I don’t want to give up this lifestyle.
  3. Yes, but what about my responsibilities – my family, etc.
  4. Yes, but I’m scared I’ll embarrass myself.
  5. Yes, but no one can just do what they love – grow up.
  6. Yes, but I have no idea what I love.
  7. Yes, but what about money? My passion is acting.
  8. Yes, but I have to think about everyone else in my life.
  9. Yes, but what if doing what I love makes me sick.
  10. Yes, but what if no one wants the thing I love doing.
  11. Yes, but what if I do it and it doesn’t work out. I’ll have nothing left to dream of.
  12. Yes, but my parents won’t approve.
  13. Yes, but it’s hard to take a commercial or business approach to doing what I love.
  14. Yes, but I’m too old now.
  15. Yes, but I don’t deserve to do what I love.
  16. Yes, but what if I don’t make it work after giving up my safe, permanent job.
  17. Yes, but the idea of what I love changes and morphs all the time – like life.
  18. Yes, but what if I realize I don’t love it after all.
  19. Yes, but the people around me won’t like it.
  20. Yes, but I love lots of things, not just one.
  21. Yes, but I don’t want to do what I love for eight hours a day, because then I won’t love it anymore.
  22. Yes, but it’s selfish to do what you love.
  23. Yes, but I might find out that I’m not good at doing what I love.
  24. Yes, but work is meant to feel difficult; it’s not meant to feel like play.
  25. Yes, but I’d never want to work for myself.

Quite a comprehensive list as to why up to 70% of people answer they do not love their work.  Sometimes to Do What You Love, you have to say ‘no’ to lots of things that you’d quite like to do.

So how has society spoken about Yes, But over the years? This is what I found that to be:

yb1

1. She’s listening, all the time. Be careful what you say and think.

yb2

One of the worlds most noted Science Fiction and Fantasy writers, a 2009 profile in The New York Times Magazine described Vance as “one of American literature’s most distinctive and undervalued voices”. He died at his home in Oakland, California on May 26, 2013, aged 96: Cliff Jumping.

yb3

3. Another bride, Another June, Another sunny honeymoon, Another season, another reason, For makin’ Whoopee.

yb4

4. The ultimate Yes, But: Scared to Death.

yb5

5. Sort it out after, to live you must make mistakes.

yb6

6. When But can be a great thing: Discovery Channel Song.

yb7.jpeg

7. Beautiful things the But means you do not experience.

yb8

8. Imagine if the jazz greats had listened to their Buts: Red Clay.

yb9

9. No Buts, Thankyou.

yb10

10. Two Words, Barack Obama: Yes We Can.

yb11

11. Time for some Fun.

yb12

12. Named by Entrepreneur Magazine as one of the Top 10 Twitter Accounts Every Entrepreneur Should Be Following, Ali is an expert at taking away the buts: Vision of Love.

yb13

13. Great trumps good every time.

yb14

14. Is Maybe So the same as but?: Call Me Maybe.

yb15

15, What’s your answer to this final quote?

John says that real prioritizing needs to be laced with frequent ‘F**K Its’, so here we go: F**K It, F**K It, F**K It, F**K It, F**K It, F**K It, F**K It, F**K It, F**K It, F**K It etc, etc.

Today’s playlist includes a POTUS. We begin with the alphabetized YT Vines and KZ Tandingan. Then an ad, The Discovery Channel Song, them some of my favourite style of music from Freddy Hubbard. The POTUS follows, then Mariah Carey and Carly Rae Jepsen finish off with some classic pop: Don’t Cut the Person to Fit the Cloth.

Remember on this glorious NYE, to express Love and Respect for All, Everyone Included as you walk into 2019:

Paradise has never been about Places!!


Not about a book this time, it’s about an experience. On the weekend I attended Collective Potential’s People on Purpose retreat: Here’s their contact page. My friend Emeli, the facilitator had a surprise for us on Saturday night, it would test my physical and trust issues to the Nth degree. I had to let my fears of walking down any slight slope when I inherited when I fell down an escalator drunk at the age of 18, a long time to hold onto something seeing I am now 64, but my balance has been shot ever since.

I am one of the worlds great givers, even having the nom de plume, The World’s Greatest Volunteer, but am sometimes naff at receiving, I realise there is a profound cost to this, but have trained myself harshly from the I am Unlovable shadow world.

What I learned was the power of the tribe, of true connection, can have people do things that they had told themselves they were incapable of. What has the world said about the power of connection over the decades, let’s have a look:

conn1

1. Number one spot to Brene, the Queen of Vulnerability.

conn2

2. I love the quote: You can get a kiss easily enough, having sex isn’t that hard really, but finding those people that touch your soul, that’s another thing: Listen To Your Heart.

conn3.jpeg

3. Relationship 101.

conn4.jpeg

4. Find Your Others: People Help the People.

conn5

5. Actions not words, true connections not Roses…

conn6.jpeg

6. As James, the financial planner on the retreat said, you do not change your habits overnight, this is especially true in relationships: Time after Time.

conn7

7. For the Barbara De Angelis fan on the retreat.

conn8

8. I was the elder at 64, there were lots in their 20’s and 30’s, even a teenager I think: Human.

conn9.jpeg

9. Albert was born in the 18th Century, still relevant today.

conn11

10. Too me this is more profound in shared experience: Shared Experiences.

conn12

11. They are your weirdo’s after all.

conn13

12. Has to slip in Emeli’s favourite word: Purpose: Love Connection.

conn13

13. I think I did this with someone on the weekend, we don’t meet them that often, Emeli was one for me, so glad to meet another.

conn16.jpeg

14. I  have had these conversations, and they have gone for days: Fresh.

conn17

15. Nada!!!

So go out there and find your others, allow true connection in your life, Collective Potential is a great place to start if you are new to the journey.

The playlist today has some certifiable classics in it: We begin with Roxette, then Birdy’s anthem to People. One of my top ten songs by Cyndi Lauper, then the bass tones of Rag and Bone Man. An unknown electronic classic by Menog. And what would a love connection playlist be without some Bollywood by Shubham Tiwari and some disco to finish off by Kool and the Gang…

Remember to show Love and Respect for All, Everyone Included until we meet again, my dear friends.
