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 best Ten Bucks you Will Spend.

I have just escaped from a 30-year history of hanging around inside a Poverty Existence persona. A word of advice, do not wait 68 years, you have wasted so much fucking time. But it does allow you to discover all the bang for a buck things on the airwaves, and I know most of them. Here is my cut at it, some famous, and ones you will have not heard of outside OZ, but I promise you will hear about Emeli real soon.

First of all, Amarc and Angel list, I have been stealing them for years, they empower me, as I hope they will you:

  1. Happiness is a…
  2. What would make you smile right now?
  3. What would make you smile, right now?
  4. What’s one bad habit that makes you miserable?
  5. What do you do when nothing else seems to make you happy?
  6. How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you were?
  7. If Happiness was the national currency, what kind of work would make you rich?Do you celebrate the things that you have?
  8. What is your happiest childhood memory, what makes it so special?
  9. What makes you smile?

Pretty cool huh? Marc and Angel are pretty special people.

Brian has read all the books we are meant to read. He does the deadliest precis of them on the web, he calls it his 10 big ideas.

So my list begins with:I love their work so much and share it mercilessly. So much so that they invited a penniless Age pensioner in Naarm/Melbourne to come to their live event. I will make it one day to thank them personally for getting me through the dark times.

Luminita aka The purpose Fairy out of Romania and Mindvalley comes in seconds for empowering lists, another on of my chronic reposts.

My new friends are out of South Africa. Yarpies rule. One of their speakers got me to see I am financially free, Super broke, but financially, let’s make some filthy lucre, so we can make a real difference.

The best-ever speaker in the world with no challengers, then and since. Founder of the glorious Est Training, when you listened to him create a distinction, the headache you got as your brainwaves were torn to shreds, was worth the pain.

Your email friend, receive 1 email, not 1,000.

Out of Illinois, you find some strange Facebook friends on the feed. I have loved Chantelles work from day one we friended each other.

Australia Mr Black Magick man out of Byron Bay, he doesn’t give a fuck what he says, as long as it makes a difference.

Two words, Brene Brown.

My dear friend Mastin, I used to steal so many of his quotes back in the days of his Daily Love blog. Now one of the best at trauma on the planet.


My Anam Cara, Emili was responsible for a nationwide concert To End poverty, at 24. She is no longer at 24 but after a mental Healthhiatus she is back, watch out,r is very powerful < has been to Rucker Island, met the Dalai lama3 times, once taking the piss, and he laughed. lots of others, By the way, the blonde one, Nicole Gibson of Love out LOud, was Australia’s National Mental Health Ambassador at 24 also, check her work at Love out loud. A very wise woman at a very young age.

To me one of the top ten influential Canadians on the planet. I used to buy her daily planner. It cost more to freght it than it cost. it was worth it though.

Lissa Rankin, her book on Fear, The Fear Cure is the best, no challengers.

Over to me, I finish with some commentary: It’s up to us, Because We can, it’s our Time:,my first paid words. $25 Australian. I believe we can change the world with them. Love and Respect for All, Everyone Included- Rod Williams.

Over to Leonard- The light gets in. Gill Scott-Heron: The revolution will not be Televised.. Back to me: Fuck Rupert Murdoch. I am learning about monetizing i have written 700 blogs and 4.9 million words on possibilty for zero income..

If you like this blog, I don’t want the money, I know I can make it now. Please donate to the organisation I love, The Asylum Seekers Resource Centre in Naarm/Melbourne where we restore people’s dignity stolen by our government when they created the disgusting distinction boat people and turned them into numbers not human beings. We also do food, health and legal stuff, we are very good at it, but no government interference on our watch.

So, meet the people who I think are your allies, they are definitely mine PS, It pisses me off sometimes That it only takes me just over an hour to create these. I may end up having to watch the Beautiful game for a while

PPs, I have committed to finding a million dollars for the ASRC this year, I have $30 of it. I would love you to toss some cash our wat. Go to our website and you will find the donate button there.

Until next time. back to twice a week, Yay!!!

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.

My Glory Days of 2022

Was it the ecstatic dances, the pizza nights around at my sister’s, and her partner Keith having made a few thousand pizzas over the years? Christmas Day was pretty good, although we lost one during the year, .We got to eat the best pavlova in Australia courtesy of Phillip.

My two highlights occurred in the last week of the year, totally unexpected. At 68 years old I had given up on my heart being touched in a romantic way, yet this is what happened when n amazing woman, whom I had never met up to that moment gave me a ride home from Dance on a sultry Naarm/Melbourne evening here where, I, the failed public servant, career-wise and the Alternative GP and women’s sexuality coach heading back to Preston from Kangaroo Ground, quite a drive. Not formulae you would give any chance of success. I don’t know if anything will come of it, but that ride was the most enjoyable 40 minutes I have spent in the last decade.

The second occurred when at a moment’s whim on New Years’ day, instead of replying to the annual Facebook parade of Happy New Year with an even bigger Happy New Years’ firework display, I simply wrote back: Love Yoe. and their name, It was nice of Paul Kelly, one of Australia’s most prominent singer/songwriters and two members of our Federal Parliament to acknowledge them, and yes, one of the first names was Anthony. But this simple message I received via messenger the following morning was all the regard I really wanted. It simply stated: That os the first time in 5 years anyone has told me that they loved me, Thankyou. So, please tell your loved ones that you love them on a regular basis.

Time for the Marc and Angel list:

  1. Appreciate what you have.
  2. Focus on things that really matter
  3. Define your own meaning of life, and pursue it.
  4. Embrace life’s Challenges.
  5. Find the balance that allows you to be who you truly are.
  6. Love your body enough to take care of it.
  7. Limit your time with negative people.
  8. Treat others the way you want to be treated,
  9. Set a good example.
  10. Accept what is, and live for the possibilities that lie ahead..

Now it is time, for the quotes and songs. Over the years I have used 12,000 quotes and 5,000 songs. I suppose that makes me a bit of a maven at it. here we go.

Do you believe in your Glory Days, do you tell stories about them round the dinner table like I do?

I am a bogan boy from the bush. I have a love for the Geelong Football Club in the AFL, Go Cats.

Time after Time, it slips by.

As we travel down our life’s journey. Our Glory Days change’

What was your name again?

Sometimes we have to be dragged screaming towards what will be our Glory days.

Luckily vinyl has made a massive return.

My bucket list profession is world champion, pro surfer.

This is why I ran marathons for 5 years, the joy of smashing your feet into footpaths for 200km a week.

Reminds me of the School Prom.

I agree, it is our duty to be present at this exact moment.

In search of these, grown men even believe the BS about joining the Armed Forces.

What if every day was our glory days?

That is why people get pissed off at concerts when artists want to play their latest creations.

I want to make a couple of points in closing, We still have time. I was having a cuppa with Mother Earth the other day, and she said that she really didn’t want to write humanity an eviction notice, as she likes our sense of humour. It’s up to us, Because we can, It’s our time.

One of my goals for 2023 is to raise a million dollars for the organisation that I volunteer for that has helped restore my soul so if you have enjoyed reading my words, here is the link to throw them a few bucks:. Seems WordPress will not allow me to add the image, here is the link:

Until we meet again, which I guess will be twice a week. Also if you enjoy it, I would appreciate a review, my last one was pre lockdown in 2019

Wow or from the Heart?

Over the holiday break, I have been pondering that deep philosophical question? When a friend posts their shiny new image should you reply with Wow or the must more malleable Heart image? Much scientific study has been done on this matter over the short time that Facebook has been in existence. I believe there is a Stanford research paper on the matter that went on for over two years, just kidding, that was me taking the piss.

I am returning to my fourteen quotes, seven-song format, because that is what I know works. I think I will throw in a Marc and Angel list for good measure because they provide such great value, just got to go and grab the book, I will be back in a second.

So we will start with a little bit of Self Love advice from my dear friends:

  1. I am fighting hard for the things I most want.
  2. I am taking action now.
  3. I am focusing on the next positive step.
  4. I am proud to wear my truth.
  5. I have a lot to smile about.
  6. I am making the best of it.
  7. I am letting go of yesterday’s stress.
  8. There is enough time today to do something I love.
  9. I am priceless in someone’s eyes
  10. It’s not too late.

Thank you Marc and Angel over there in Florida. If you wish to you can support them by purchasing 1000+ Little Things, Happy Successful People do Differently and Getting Back to Happy. They can be found on LifeHack.

1, We all remember our first experience of this.

Who doesn’t love a kiss first thing in the morning, be it human or our dearly belov.

I am still a fan of the Wow,

I’m playing a game with my Facebook Group at the end of the month. The Group is Called Conscious Community Melbourne. We are going to post our three goals for the year, and then make three requests to the community. In the end, you make three offers to the community. The rule is, no money is allowed to exchange hands: Heart not the wallet.


A little bet of Self Love goes a long way.

My hell is actually you pull up to the gates, and enter into a barefoot lawn bowls club, and the only entertainment is 24-hour drum circles.

Well, we did not really answer the question in the negative or the positive, I will always be a fan of the Wow. This is where you get to read Rod’s ethos of Interculturalism: Love and Respect for All, Everyone Included and a request to donate to the ASRC. Drop across to the website and we take all denominations.

Namaste,until we meet again. Its seems I have retuned to my two blogs a week.

The Best of the best

It is 12:01am in Naarm/Melbourne, exactly a year after I wrote my last blog. the day I promised I would return to the airwaves with my meanderings about Life at I am an Interculturalist. Even though I wrote only one blog in 2022, It was visited by 3.598 visitors for 4,899 views in 120 countries China being the 6th highest readership. smashing down the firewalls that say no to freedom, That is what comes from having 4.8 million words floating around the airwaves about possibility, people are dying for it.

I used to write a top ten influencers on the airwaves every year, then along came Covid and Cest la vie, and this practice ceased.

So once again, I make my offering to the ether of the universal airwaves. My top ten, congratulations to the finalists, I do not rate you one to ten, but honour you for the difference you make to the planet with your modalities.

I am going, to begin with, the Australian contingent, of which there are five, go you good things, we make up 50 per cent of the best offerings on the world wide web. In no order:

Dane Tomas: The Dark Wizard of the Australian Conscious Movement. Ex Rapper, entrepreneur, and Creator of distinctions galore. Why I have included Dane is that I am jealous of his I don’t give a fuck, let’s get something done attitude, something our beautiful community of First World Problematic wanna-be gods and goddesses sorely lack, including myself.

I have made chai for my beautiful friend Phoenix for the past six years. She is the holder of the Dancing Freedom modality, which is based on the elements. The session is in three parts. The transformational bit where Phoenix allows you to get in touch with the energy of Mother Earth through her words Then there is the dancing bit, where you get to feel better about yourself for two days listening to the best-compiled music, check it out over on Mixcloud under WhiteCalf, you will never have to spend a dollar on purchasing dance music again. Then there is my bit, The drinking of Chai, caffeine free of course, we can’t have people drinking black tea chai at 10.30 at night, can we. This is the part where you get to follow up those lustful thoughts about that person on the dance floor because you can actually speak to them, as the dance floor is a silent space. I intend to retire Phoenix from the practice of the music, she has trained enough goddesses to do the dance bit, but none of them has the power of her voice.

Sigourney Belle Weldon is someone I have never met in real life. But I know she will have made a profound difference in my life every time I read her powerful words, Her latest offering is called Holly Wealth, it will be profound as all the rest of her work has been.

I have recently begun volunteering at this simple man’s organisation, the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre in Naarm/Melbourne. Yes, we provide them with basics like food, health and legal assistance. But what we really do, is return the dignity that was stolen from them by governments of both ilks in our country when they created the disgusting distinction, of boat people. If you have a spare million dollars to donate to a worthy cause, tax-deductible of course, check out our ASRC website, there is a link there, we accept any currency.

I did not know this remarkable woman six months ago. We became FB friends and she taught me to laugh again with her posts. To say she is a genius at it is a gross understatement. All of you other thought leaders on this list, I ask that you throw everything you have got at her. Ally is only beginning her journey, but she is going to be magnificent. I think Ally only has a personal Facebook page, so Ally, when you start receiving Facebook friend requests from Iceland and St, Kitts, the most expensive tourist island in the West Indies, don’t be concerned, they are from the same DNA as us.

Now we head overseas and meet Marc and Angel Chernoff, two university lovebirds out of Florida. Without a doubt the best list creators on the planet, Yes I have regularly stolen them to include in my blogs so I look smarter than the average bunny. Their books are sensational, Google their name and you will find a link.

Out of Canada, meet Danielle LaPorte, creator of the Desire Map and other classics. I used to buy her planner each and every year, the postage was more than the cost of the planner, but it was worth it for the little vignettes lying within. Danielle has lots of free stuff. I wrote an application to become her freelance copywriter recently. I have not had a real job for ten years so my CV was my words, I suppose that is what a copywriter is meant to provide, so,

well and good.

Ex bad boy of the music scene, a lover of the white powder. Mastin created The Daily Love blog, with 800,000 followers, most of who were recognised as of the female variety. Mastin walked away as he knew this was not his true calling, he does the most extraordinary trauma work available.

Luminta, better known as Purpose Fairy, is out of Romania. Also a great creator of lists, but I value her for her authenticity, She has a great giveaway called 15 Things you should give up to be Happy, this is what swept her to fame.

Just a Facebook group I think, I may be wrong, but I know that I reshare each and every one of their offering of possibility.

Creator of the sublime Est Trainings back in the 70s. Werner was crushed by the muggles when they found out what it was providing humanity, It is still around in the much more sanitised form known as the Landmark Forum. Back in the day, it was two weekends, so the trainers half destroyed your identity then back to work for a week to return for the job to be completed, WTF. Werner created all the distinctions that they still use today. If you want a year’s free training in two hours watch his stuff on Youtube, especially on Leadership and Compassion and you will wonder what all the fuss about Tony Robbins and Jordan Peterson is all about, these people are but rank amateurs in his presence.

That is the list, The first slogan I created: It’s up to Us Because We Can, it’s Our time. My ethos in life: Love and Respect for All, Everyone Included.

A distinction for you in regard to Social Media: Facebook is your Vision Board, so do not let anyone shit in its pace, do the work – Byron Katie. Never post on Instagram, there is a trick that does it for you with your Facebook posts. I have never posted on Instagram and have 5,000 followers who love what I post, little do they know, I find Twitter useful to release frustrations, still, the only place you can call Donald Trump a cunt and get away with it, LinkedIn, my new baby is where the big bucks are, you definitely have to do the work, I have gone from a 40 out f 100 rating to 68 and I have only written three of my own posts. My bogan friend Adam Holohan, out of Sydney, where I learnt my superpowers for the cost of one of his books, it only took me 28 months to think, damn, I might give this a try, and spectacular results followed.

All the words, where they come from. I have spent easily $100,000 on trying to feel better about myself over the past 30 years. Imagine my surprise when I woke up after a simple zoom session on the nurturer archetype, which was obviously me, having been the World’s Greatest Volunteer for decades with a hundred thousand dollars of the most profound wisdom lodged in my body, and for the steak knives they had given me a voice, something I had wished for my entire 68-year life, yes I am an old fucker, aka Elder.

See you in the arena of life: I was having a cuppa with Mother Earth the Other day and she was a bit sad. She really didn’t want to write an eviction notice to humanity, she loves our sense of humour.

I will steal one of Dane’s distinctions to close, Peace Out.

What do you think?

I have been told that reviews make a difference. My last one was in 2019. So, I am putting a request out into the WordPress space that I would like some more recent ones.

Here’s a quote and song to keep in practice until relaunch day: January 3. 2023.

Humorous Growing up Meme.

Don’t read my homepage it is boring


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.
