Will the Rainbow Children save the planet?


I have done many things in my 68 years, one of them was hang around CERES environmental park in Naarm/Melbourne where I went from being the World’s Greatest Volunteer to a board member for 7 years after a very strange invitation by the team leaders one stormy winter night.

CERES is a 5 acre city farm that used to be the Brunswick tip. A group of hippies got together 40 years ago and put the idea to turn the tip into a farm. The only problem being they had energy but no money. Some liberated councillors at the time gave it to them for the acorn rent of $1 a year which it has remained at over the time, CERES is now a multi million dollar business.

Two of its features have been the Cafe and the playground where the rainbow people could bring their rainbow children and meet their Mothers Groups, on a Saturday 900 cups of coffee would be sold. I think it is up to the third generation of this happening. Mothers who were brought by their mothers are returning with their offspring.

I had not been for ages and went there to renew my membership last Saturday. I did not know The Olives to Oil festival was on. The local councils set up a drop off spot for your olives and you get them pressed into oil as a community service, I have never seen that many olives in one place in my life.

But back to the Rainbow kids. As always there was entertainment. I knew them Santirino is an traditional Italian band who also do the tarantella if the weather allows for it, unfortunately this was not the case on Saturday. Rosa sang beautifully, I. had forgotten how beautiful she is, so full of vitality and passion. My mate Phil was on accordion and flute, I have followed his different musical ensembles for over 40 years. This is one of the better ones.

At the end of their first set Rosa announced they had a special guest. A young teenager, at the most 12 or 13 approached the stage and did this amazing French number with so much confidence it belied her tender years. I overheard her mum say she could speak and sing in 6 languages. She was definitely one of CERES rainbow children.

It restored my faith that humanity does not have the people in our society that will save the planet, we have the rainbow children. The last generation have moved on and formed Extinction Rebellion across the planet. They know what it takes.

Some wise words from Marc and Angel Chernoff:

life is full of positive experiences. Notice them. Notice the sun warming your skin, the small child learning to walk, and the smiling faces around you. Smell the rain, and feel the wind. Live your life to the fullest potential by reveling in the beauty of these experiences, and letting them inspire you to be the most positive version of YOU.

What would happen if. you approached each day intentionally, with a positive attitude? What would happen if you you embraced life’s. challenges with a. smile on your face? What would happen if you surrounded yourself with people who made you better? What would happen if you paused long enough to appreciate it all?

Livong a positive life is all about creating positive habits to help you focus on what truly matters. This is the secret of super positive people . here are 9 simple ideas to help you follow in their footsteps:

  1. Wake up every morning with the idea that something wonderful is possible today.
  2. Celebrate your existence.
  3. Appreciate life’s perfect moments.
  4. Embrace life’s challenges.\
  5. Live and breath the truth.
  6. Fill your own bucket.
  7. Become addicted to constant and never-ending self improvement.
  8. Help the people around you smile.
  9. Spend time with positive people.

Lets move on to the quotes and music:

I have seen a triple rainbow in my life, I felt extremely lucky, I did not find the pot of gold.

love native wisdom, it is so eternal.

Finally, rainbows are too remind you to stay strong.

Finally a gift from our country to yours, sing along people.

Back to me, I used to make my money from writing koans aka slogans, I only use two of them these days: Love and Respect for All, Everybody Included and its up to me, because we can, Its our time. We need Peters definition of wealth: An abundance of gratitude more and more these days. These blogs are for an abundance of possibility.

Until next time, my dear readers in 160 counties, thank you for your stand for possibility.

Don’t listen to GOOP!!!


I have had an interesting year, Met a billionaire and multi millionaire. Dropped 20K I could not really afford, and been locked up as an involuntary patient in a mental health unit as consequences of the first two things for four weeks, Once in, it is not so easy to get out.

I , through these mistakes, learnt a lot, including the acronym GOOP, the Good Opinion of Other People and the deadly effect it has on you achieving your dreams. I thank Peter Sage, the creator of this distinction for altering how life occurs for me now.

I also am enquiring into two other distinctions,Your opinion is not the truth, Ever and Listen, you do not learn when you are speaking.. The opinion one was described to me in the following manner: Opinion lives on one side of the Universe and truth the other. our task, this time in , is to align them as closely as possible. Unfortunately most humans give up at a very early age on this quest, this is when cinversation dies. His Holiness I credit the third one to, one of my favourite wise men. Do you think he was on a camel that night in Bethlehem?

Time for a Marc and Angel list, this time it is called 20 ways to create million dollar ideas, here we go

  7. Test variations of the same idea.
  8. Figure out what works well in one market and tailor it for another.
  9. Put the pieces together
  10. Spin a new twist on a previous breakthrough
  11. Systematise a popular service into a reproducale product.
  12. Play with Opposites.
  13. Look for problems and solve them.
  14. Design other products that supportother successful products.
  15. Keep it simple.
  16. Use the tools and skills you already have.
  17. Surround yourself with other thinkers.
  18. Be enthusiastic about what you are doing.
  19. Accept constructive criticism, but ignore naysayers
  20. Actually do something with your ideas.

Do you do this, I’m not great at it, i am a “nice person”

The famous the five we spend time with covered here.

Spend your time with the one or two, I am very bad at this.

Most relationship advice is GOOP< you know that already.

A POTUS.

How many in your circle, fuck them off.

I like these women, they rock.

The blame game sucks, big time.

Self explanatory!!!

What are you animal spirits, have you learnt the lesson?

hut the fuck up, get on with it.

Until we meet again, my Blog fans. in 160 countries.

The Dead Parents Society


What do you talk about around the dinner table or consequently avoid discussion like the plague? I was having a catchup at Macca’s AKA a coaching session when this subject came up. Her dad had passed recently and mine were well gone so It was safe to discuss our feelings towards them.

It is something that is not on the list for a mention, Gardening, House ownership, and even sex are okay. But dear old mum and dad are not on the agenda. Is it because it hurts too much, they say it takes a few years, but my dear old dad passed 11 years ago, and when I think of him, which I must admit is rare these days, it still hurts.

AMarc and Amgel list, they are from the iconic tome:: 1000+ little things Happy Successful People do differently. google Life hack.

  1. The most beautiful thing is to see a person nearby smiling. And even more beautiful is knowing that you are the one behind it
  2. 2. If you have the power to make someone happier today, do it. The world needs more of that.
  3. Some people build lots of walls in their lives and not enough bridges, there’s no good reason to be one of them. Open yourself up. Take small chances on people.
  4. 4. Never stop doing little things for those around you. Sometimes those little things occupy the biggest part of their hearts.
  5. Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of love – all of which have the potential to turn a life around.
  6. Be present, be thoughtful Compliment people. Magnify their strengths, not their weaknesses. This is how to make a real and lasting difference in your relationships, new and old.
  7. We don’t always need advice. Sometimes all we need is a hand to hold, an ear to listen to, and a heart to understand.
  8. Today, just be 100 per cent present with those around you – be all there. That is enough.
  9. There is no such thing as self-made Someone else believed in you. Someone else encouraged you. Someone else is invested in you. Someone else prayed for you. Someone else spoke life over you. Be that someone for others too.
  10. It’s practically impossible to love your neighbours if we don’t know them, and yet that’s often the case We live in such a hyper-connected world with such limited or nonexistent communication Remember this. Relationships matter. Stories matter.
  11. In human relationships, distance is not measured in miles but in affection. Two people can be right next to each other yet miles apart.
  12. Stay in touch with those who really matter to you, not because it’s convenient, but because they are worth the extra effort.
  13. The single greatest problem in communication is the illusion it has taken place. Too often we don’t listen to understand, we listen to reply. Bring awareness ti this. And listen for what’s truly behind the words.
  14. Set an example. Treat everyone with respect, even those who are rude to you not because they are always nice, but because you are. And do your best to be thankful for the rude and difficult people too, they serve as great reminders of how not to be.
  15. 15. Sometimes it is better to be kind than right.
  16. People are much nicer when they are happier, which says a lot about those who aren’t very nice to you. Sad, but true.
  17. The real test always comes when you don’t get what you expect from people. Will you react in anger? Or will calmness be your superpower?
  18. The way we treat people is the way we treat people we don’t understand is a report card on what we’ve learned about love, compassion, and kindness.
  19. Be kinder than necessary. What goes around, comes around. No one has ever made themselves strong by showing how small someone is.
  20. The best relationships are not just about the good times you share, they are also they’re also about the obstacles you go through together and the fact that you still say I love you in the end.

Now for the quotes and the songs, I promise to not get too morbid.

I missed doing this, I feel sad often. At 68nits too late, baby.

It has been eleven and four years for the Williams siblings since we became the elders. Each and every day.

Plum village, such a wisw nman. R.I.P. THich.

How many ways can you say, I love you mum and dad.

I did some terrible things to my mum during my teenage years, I call it our black vs. white time.

Lots of truth in this statement.

In my Buddhist years Pema Chodron always said this

They mostly always know already, they just love you for who you are.

Unrequied love by any other name.

Great image of motherhood.

For you, Karina.

Unfortunately , we do not do this all of the time, then we have to have our wounds healed.

Early days, it’s up to mum and dad.

over to my words. The first slogan I ever got paid the princely sum of AUS25 dollars for It’s up to us, Because we Can, It’s our time. The ethos of Interculturalosism: Love and Respect for all, everybody included. Leonard – The light gets in, Gil Scott Heron: The revolution will not be televised Me- fuck Rupert Murdoch. It is an interesting time in our lands: WE are charging the machine guns, and some of us will not make it. There are more of us than them, They know they have lost. If you enjoyed this I would appreciate s donation towards the 1 million dollars I am raising for the ASRC in 2023/ The button os on our website.

Until next time, my dear friends.

The World of Dance


I was not a born dancer. In fact, clumsy fucker comes to mind around my dancing ability. My first memories of dance are the Lockwood South Memorial Hall outside Bendigo and the Pride of Erin, I was about eight. My mum and dad loved this weekly sojourn, and we kids were dragged along each and every weekend.

I now live for a Dancing Freedom sunset dance outside Melbourne at Kangaroo Ground. led by my beautiful friend Phoenix Onesonf Maradola, the best-set creator in Australia. Throw her some love and sponsor her music on Mixcloud under Whitecalf, you will come out of it ahead because you can cancel your Spotify subscription, so it will only cost you 2,99 Euros instead of $11,00 a month.

Now to Marc and Angels list. This one is titled Success Questions to make you Think:

  1. What’s the number one thing you want to achieve in the next 5 years
  2. If we learn from our mistakes, why are we always so afraid to make a mistake
  3. What’s something that used to scare you, but no longer does.
  4. What mistakes do you make over and over again?
  5. What did fear of failure stop you from doing?
  6. If you could learn anything, what would it be?
  7. What is something you will continue to do until the day that you die?
  8. What is the best advice you have ever received?
  9. If I were to say to you “Just go for it”, what would it be?
  10. What’s something you must give up to move forward?

Here we go with the quotes and the music, Yay!!!

Ballet touches me in so many ways.

Follow the Yellow Brick Road.

Tap, One, Two, Three.

Didn’t that Happy song make it big?

No, you are the fool.

Love all the feelings things.

I love you, Mummy and Daddy.

It was not her first step she remembered, it was her first dance movement.

And we know who it is really for, don’t we?

And of course, you dance in the rain.

First crawl, then Dance.

I didn’t know Michael Jordan was a ballet dancer?

And during the Fire element they are so, so loud, aren’t they, Phoenix?

Our dear old blind and deaf dog, Suki knows this emphatically.

So remember Mojo – The Dance of Connection, 5 Rhythms with Rivka, 5 Rhythms with Evelyn and the magnificent Phoenix OneSong Maradola aka White calf.

Now let’s talk about me. I live my life from the ethos of Interculturalism: Love and Respect for All, Everybody included, look for my FB group called Interculturalism and my blog I am an Interculturalist. I would love to join our growing tribe. My saying: It’s up to Us, Because We Can, It’s our Time. The first words I ever got paid the princely sum of $25.00 for. I lived in the hope Greta T. would discover it and it would become the chant of the International school strike movement. She has her own words and I have mine. Remember the reviews, dear friends, and extra Brownie Points for the first one.

Peace Out, thank you, Dane.

Don’t read my homepage it is boring

Featured


I have noticed that a lot of my recent views have been of my homepage. This is not where the magic and healing occur. Take a few seconds to scroll, down. You never know what you may find.

What happened to Rod and his words.


I used to religiously write two blogs a week, that is how I got to over 700 blogs and 4,000,000 words on possibility and being read in 160 of the 194 countries across the planet.

Let’s go back to January 3, 2022. Why is that date significant? That is when I wrote my last blog. I had a crazy thought that nobody was reading my words even though empirical evidence showed this to be untrue.

I have sat in front of my keyboard many times and nada.

I have just completed my dear friend Clare Elizabeth Dea’s Love and Money course. One result out of it I did not expect was to get my words back, but I frigging did.

I like celebrations so I will write my first official blog on January 3, 2023.

Until then here is a quote and a song to get back in practice..

Imagination belongs to hope. It’s the creative dance of possibility

Here’s a song about possibility:

So I’ll see all of you, my friends across the planet on January 3, 2023.

Passion-play, What lights you Up!!!


We have arrived at that time of the year, The First of the First, and we play the New Year Resolution game. I changed it several years ago to the Passion game. I ask myself this group of questions:

  1. What will you never give up on?
  2. What activities make you lose track of time?
  3. What fascinates you?
  4. What’s something you would do every day if you could?
  5. At what time in your recent past have you felt most passionate and alive?
  6. Are you doing what you believe in, or are you settling for what you are doing?
  7. What one thing have you not done that you really want to do? What’s holding you back?
  8. What is something you would hate to go without for a day?
  9. Would you rather have less work to do, or more work you actually enjoy doing?
  10. What would you do differently if you knew nobody would judge you?

How do you describe passion? 1. A strong feeling or emotion: He spoke with passion. 2. an object of someone’s love, liking, or desire: Art is my passion. 3. strong liking or desire: love. She has a passion for music.

Passion is actually derived from an Ancient Greek word: πάσχω “to suffer, to be acted on so there have been many a quote on the subject, here are a few over time:

1,

1. How can you place a price tag on passion?

2. From the fastest man in the world at his time, Donovan relates that work comes with passion: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C8QJmI_V3j4&list=PLuDyQHg9f0ty3NsEZTGuz_PclKIruw6l7&index=33

3. Best known for discovering the wreck of the Titanic when looking for lost nuclear weapons, Robert says it’s about your life, not others.

4. Your passion is not for others, that’s your purpose: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZmWBrN7QV6Y&list=PLhXQhpqBNAYsiwGQ6e4rxgbQ0gGVfKZ2u&index=10

5. Then we must always have Oprah’s take on it.

6. Then included in a good passion cake is a modicum of love: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lwgr_IMeEgA&list=PLhXQhpqBNAYsiwGQ6e4rxgbQ0gGVfKZ2u&index=15

7. Purpose follows passion, find the former and the latter will follow.

8. Many Passionate choices here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r_8ydghbGSg&list=PLhXQhpqBNAYsiwGQ6e4rxgbQ0gGVfKZ2u&index=18

9. Considered the leader most responsible for the Allied victory in WW1 Foch believed that a strong heart won battles not a well trained army.

10. Passion from the start will see you stick it out to the end: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bMpFmHSgC4Q&list=PLhXQhpqBNAYsiwGQ6e4rxgbQ0gGVfKZ2u&index=2

11. All the greats placed passion first then went through the purpose and plans to accomplish their ideas.

12. Passion resides in your heart, not your head: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dW6SkvErFEE&list=PLhXQhpqBNAYsiwGQ6e4rxgbQ0gGVfKZ2u&index=6

13. The great Maya Angelou includes passion, along with compassion, humour and style in her life’s mission.

14. The Chief Operating Officer of Meta/Facebook also insists that as part of your passion there must be contribution included: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pvI9PuGorwI&list=PLhXQhpqBNAYsiwGQ6e4rxgbQ0gGVfKZ2u&index=19

15. The CEO of Linkedin India closes our session with a profound station on passion.

Inside our passion, we must Think Deeply, Speak Gently, Love Lots, Laugh Often, Work Hard, Give Back, Expect Less, Be Present, Be Kind, Be Honest and Be True to Ourselves. Remember we hold the passion, the others are just our aides.

Today’s playlist is passionate and from the heart: We begin with Sade followed by Lady Gaga. Next is Anda Day, then Demi Lovato. Hailee Steinfeld is the song before the penultimate number by Mumford and Sons and we complete with Rachel Platten; enjoy: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLJlQ3F9bKYrsRhCOQtEKTUMGpA53C4NID

I am passionate about Interculturalism, I have created an ethos for it: Love and Respect for All, Everybody Included. I have two Facebook groups to spread the ethos around the world: https://www.facebook.com/groups/183421768519278: Interculturalism and https://www.facebook.com/groups/1126100227764949: Thriving People – People who wish to make a difference to humanity.

Will a lie protect you from failure or just delay you beginning!!!


Have you ever received awful advice from your supposed friends as you excitedly tell them about your latest adventure? They think they are trying to protect you from the possibility of failure, which, in effect, also shied you from the possibility of making your dream a reality.

Here are a few ill-advised tips (lies) people will likely tell you when you decide to pursue your dreams, and why they are dreadfully mistaken.

  1. You can follow your dreams someday, but right now you need to buckle down and be responsible.
  2. You are totally screwed if it doesn’t work out.
  3. It’s safer to stay at your day job.
  4. That’s impossible.
  5. Only a lucky few “make it”.
  6. You might fail and failing is bad.
  7. You will sacrifice too much for too little.
  8. You need more money saved before you take the first step.
  9. You don’t need any help. It’s smarter to go after it alone.
  10. That sounds like a lot of hard work.

All supposed good advice but in the end white lies. Only you can take the steps that fulfil your dreams. And what has society said about the cost of a lie over time. Here are a few of my favourite quotes:

1. Lord Byron, one of the best-known poets had an unusual death for a creative. He died fighting in the Greek War of Independence.

2. What came first, the chicken or the egg:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rYEDA3JcQqw&list=PLyORnIW1xT6wzupDsoAlmcLoeYEOumvfZ

3. Being open is what starts the transformation.

4. If the numbers don’t add up, the truth is missing: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OpQFFLBMEPI&list=PLyORnIW1xT6wzupDsoAlmcLoeYEOumvfZ&index=7


5. Trust seems to be the issue here.

6. Deal with the permanence seems to be the answer:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nCkpzqqog4k&list=PLyORnIW1xT6wzupDsoAlmcLoeYEOumvfZ&index=8

7.In telling the truth you do not have to remember it, because it’s true.

8. You are not being creative, you are still lying: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l6tXqFp-mnM&list=PLyORnIW1xT6wzupDsoAlmcLoeYEOumvfZ&index=9

9. I would rather deal with your true opinions than your white lies.

10. Is a lie an attempt to hide a feeling of embarrassment?:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fzeWc3zh01g&list=PLyORnIW1xT6wzupDsoAlmcLoeYEOumvfZ&index=15

11. Pass out the tissues.

12. Says it all really: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DksSPZTZES0&list=PLyORnIW1xT6wzupDsoAlmcLoeYEOumvfZ&index=16

13. The POTUS quote for this blog makes me doubt it’s veracity.

14. The lies we tell ourselves are probably the reasons we put up with others: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WbJNkH-pDd8&list=PLyORnIW1xT6wzupDsoAlmcLoeYEOumvfZ&index=25.

15. Because a lie must be remembered for ever so you can tell it again.

So in writing this blog I have come to the decision that the only option is to gather a tribe of truthtellers around you and deal with the consequences of this. Hopefully you have done this in some form or another.

Today’s playlist is modern in nature beginning with two Pop Diva’s Adele and Pink. Sam Smith breaks up the women with Elizabeth Young and Billie Ellish following. The penultimate track is Justin Timberlake and we finish with The Black Eyed Peas, Enjoy: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLJlQ3F9bKYrsBV-7gSv-r5uyd0oJ2eKSZ

Living in the world of no lies is not easy as is creating a world wide ethos of Love and Respect for All, Everybody Included. That’s why I have created two Facebook groups: Interculturalism: https://www.facebook.com/groups/183421768519278 and Thriving People – People who wish to make a difference to humanity: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1126100227764949. If you are reading this I would love you to join one or both to help spread it around the world.

Until we meet again my dear friends.

Has COVID mandated Dislike of people who used to be friends.


I am not an anti vaccer, this is because as a young child to be kept alive I received quite a lot of vaccines and accepted that you had to take things that you may not like but were in the end good for you. Another term I heard recently regarding this area was Pro-choice which I thought related to the abortion movement, or it did in the seventies.

I have seen people posting via social media utter nonsense, that horse medicine is better than vaccines, that COVID is an international plot and the purpose of the vaccine is to put a microchip in you. If someone started a conversation about these subjects I would have to request that they stop as I am far too logical to listen to it.

What upsets me is that in these hard times I have heard of cases where people have written off friendships because we agree to disagree. Nobody gets through life without losing someone they love, someone they need, or something they thought was meant to be. Here are some lessons we have learnt over these painful times:

  1. You are not what happened to you in the past.
  2. Focus on what you have, not on what you don’t.
  3. Struggling with problems is a natural way of growing.
  4. It’s OK to fall apart for a little while.
  5. Life is fragile, sudden, and shorter than it often seems.
  6. Emotionally separate yourself from your problems.
  7. Don’t make a problem bigger than it is.
  8. View every challenge as an educational assignment.
  9. Things change, but the sun always rises the next day.
  10. Giving up and moving on are two different things.
  11. Perfect relationships don’t exist.
  12. You must love yourself too.
  13. Don’t let others make decisions for you.
  14. Resentment hurts them, not you.
  15. Consciously nurture your inner hope.
  16. It’s better to be hurt by the truth than comforted by a lie.
  17. Not getting what you want can be a blessing.
  18. Laughter is the best medicine for stress.
  19. Worrying is literally a waste of energy.
  20. Even when it’s hard to move, take small steps forward.
  21. You are better off without some people you thought you needed.
  22. You are only competing against yourself.
  23. Life is not easy.
  24. Your future is unwritten.
  25. You are not trapped, you just need to relearn a few things.
  26. Everything in life is two-sided.
  27. You always have a choice.
  28. Let others in when you are in a dark place.
  29. If you ask negative questions , you will get negative answers.
  30. The end is a new beginning.

This is not the first time that disagreements like this have happened over time, I’m sure there are quotes over the decades that discussed this dilemma, lets have a look:

1. I is not worth going over the limit if you know their opinion is different to yours.

Until we net again, my dear friends.
