What’s Left Unsaid, Says It All!!

Do you make judgements about people and withhold what you truly believe? Remember that not everything that is faced can be changed, but nothing can be changed until it is faced. Bruce Lee once said that “Always be yourself and have faith in yourself. Do not go out and look for a successful personality and try to duplicate it.”

One way that is common these days of saying this is to speak your truth, how many New Years Resolutions will be I will speak my truth this year. What has the world said about this quirky term, to speak your truth, let’s have a look:


1. People have often be scared out of doing this by people they see as braggarts thinking that you have to be over the top when sharing your truth, this is not the case for everybody, each of us is unique in our own way.


2. Author of the iconic book “Women who run with the Wolves”, Clarissa points out what you become in touch with by speaking your truth: Speak Life.


3. If there were not people who took this on, not much would change on the planet as people are addicted to being comfortable with what’s so.


4. My proofreading background seems to think they left a word out of this quote, where do you think it is and which word is it, still a powerful request: Halo.


5. Feel the tremors, time to speak up!!


6. What would the great plays sound like if you left out half the lines, your truth is your great play: Not Afraid.


7. Unnecessary things like worrying about judgements by others, make 2018 the best season of your life.


8. Your truth does not have to taste bitter, in fact, it can taste like your favourite food: Falling Slowly


9. The man who had three conversations with God states that your truth can ooze peace.


10. A few other practices that may come in handy as you change your world and for others: Live your Life.


11. Speaking your truth does not mean you have to become arrogant towards others, in fact, it means that listening to others is the best way to recruit them to your cause.


12. Go where your heart leads you, says it all really: Your Heart will lead you Home.


13. What I love about Caroline Myss is that she definitely speaks her truth, especially to participants in her seminars who are clearly not. I have had the honour of experiencing this twice.


14.Rachel Naomi Ramen answered the question – How does curing differ from healing?

Basically curing is about repair and healing is about growth. So curing is something we do to others and healing something we evoke in others. Curing happens at the level of the body and leads to a re-normalization of physiology. Healing happens at the level of the person and involves an evolution and refinement of the individual, a deepening of the capacity for emotional life, mental life and spiritual life¾the furthering of personal wholeness and not physical health. Healing promotes the quality of life and the capacity to engage with life: Who You Really Are.
15. I call it my tribe, they could be anywhere. I found a new one at the NYE chanting event I attended a few days ago.
“Once we believe in ourselves, we can risk curiosity, wonder, spontaneous delight, or any experience that reveals the human spirit.” –E.E. Cummings
Music comes from the magnificent movie Once, Beyonce, Eminem, The Tigger Movie and several lesser known luminaries.
Namaste until next time, my dear friends.


I am not afraid of Storms!!

Storms could be another way of relating to our weaknesses, why do we spend so much time thinking about what we cannot do aka our percieved weaknesses versus what are our strengths. The effect that weaknesses have on us are one of the takeaways in Timothy Ferriss’s great book Tools of Titans: His website.  Ferriss has been listed as one of Fast Company‘s “Most Innovative Business People,” one of Forbes‘s “Names You Need to Know,” and one of Fortune‘s “40 under 40.” He is an early-stage technology investor/advisor (Uber, Facebook, Shopify, Duolingo, Alibaba, and 50+ others) and the author of four #1 New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestsellers, including The 4-Hour Workweek and his latest, Tools of Titans: The Tactics, Routines, and Habits of Billionaires, Icons, and World-Class Performers. The Observer and other media have called Tim “the Oprah of audio” due to the influence of The Tim Ferriss Show podcast, which has exceeded 100 million downloads and has been selected for “Best of iTunes” three years running.

What influence can dealing with our weaknesses have on our day to day life, lets see what society says:


1.Seneca the Younger (c. 4 BC – AD 65), fully Lucius Annaeus Seneca and also known simply as Seneca , was a Roman Stoic philosopher, statesman, dramatist, and—in one work—humorist of the Silver Age of Latin literature.

Seneca was born in Cordoba in Hispania, and raised in Rome, where he was trained in rhetoric and philosophy. He was a tutor and later advisor to emperor Nero. He was forced to take his own life for alleged complicity in the Pisonian conspiracy to assassinate Nero, in which he was likely to have been innocent.


2. That feeling when you wake up and go but I didn’t do that, I have no idea how I will survive…, you know what I mean, Its in these moments you must get back to self love and relate to what you have done that are your moments of greatness: The Greatest.


3. Susan Gale is an author who has this one quote on Goodreads, All I Ever Needed Was The One is the heartfelt love life story of a late bloom baby boom cougar in search of genuine cupid chemistry and not a beta male mate. It’s about a rare old fashioned lady who finally settles down for the chemical pheromone reaction of true love and not a politically correct laundry list of economically desirable shortcomings. A tale spanning innocent bliss, adult discovery and sentimental mid life, this romantic comedy is the ultimate storybook of waiting for Mr. Right or finding at long last love.


4. This makes me think of the quote I left out, “A person who never made a mistake never tried anything new. Albert Einstein”: Starman.


5. With the  light comes the dark, learn about both  or the one you forget will snak up on you and slam you to the ground.


6. Abundance does not just relate to how much money you have, It’s also in those moments when you get fully in touch with your emotions , both types, positive and so called negative: He ain’t heavy, he’s my brother.


7. Love is not a Mills and Boon script, it includes the above as well.


8. When did not showing your emotions become a so called show of strength: Crying.


9. How often do we need to do reality checks versus how we hope it will be?


10. Emerson wrote on a number of subjects, never espousing fixed philosophical tenets, but developing certain ideas such as individuality, freedom, the ability for mankind to realize almost anything, and the relationship between the soul and the surrounding world. Emerson’s “nature” was more philosophical than naturalistic: “Philosophically considered, the universe is composed of Nature and the Soul”. Emerson is one of several figures who “took a more pantheist or pandeist approach by rejecting views of God as separate from the world: Feels


11. Keep putting your feet in front of each other, your soul is listening.


12. Thomas Edison’s teachers said he was “too stupid to learn anything.” He was fired from his first two jobs for being “non-productive.” As an inventor, Edison made 1,000 unsuccessful attempts at inventing the light bulb. When a reporter asked, “How did it feel to fail 1,000 times?”Edison replied, “I didn’t fail 1,000 times. The light bulb was an invention with 1,000 steps.”: Don’t Give Up.


13. Go out and find some bumpy roads so you know what it takes.


14. The remainder of this quote is “True power is within and is available to you now, certainly changes the outcome doesn’t it: The Show must Go On.


15. To finish, this great quote from Leonardo. Your weaknesses have the ability to become your strengths.

Managing Procrastination, Predicting the Future, and Finding Happiness – Tim Urban can be found on Tom’s podcast, here is the link Wordly advice on the path to Happiness. It’s quite long, but then again great conversations are those ones you have where time is irrelevant.

Music is from the current time with Sia to the 60’s with the Hollies witha great duet by K. D. Laing and Roy Orbison thrown in.

Namaste until next time my dear friends.



We would astound Ourselves!!

Are you doing what you are uniquely capable of, What you Feel you were placed Here on Earth to Do? Can you be replaced?

People often think its about the money, If I do that I will answer my abundance prayer. But a great place to look is, are you interchangeable, are you using your unique abilities that make you the special one. Tim Ferriss uses a philosophy of ,Am I saying Hell Yeah about something: If not he says no. In the  Konmari decluttering method the only things that survive are those that bring you joy, so what is your unique gift to the world:


1. So, So, So, So, So, So…..Got the message?


2. Across the world, each culture has its own definition of beautiful, you fir in somewhere: Perfect.


3. In an interview with comedian Paul Mecurio, Tyson offered his definition of spirituality: “For me, when I say spiritual, I’m referring to a feeling you would have that connects you to the universe in a way that it may defy simple vocabulary. We think about the universe as an intellectual playground, which it surely is, but the moment you learn something that touches an emotion rather than just something intellectual, I would call that a spiritual encounter with the universe.” Tyson has argued that many great historical scientists’ belief in intelligent design limited their scientific inquiries, to the detriment of the advance of scientific knowledge.


4. I was watching the TV doco series the 1990’s about technology when browsers where first developed for the internet, before that it has been the playground of scientific nerds, that is less that 30 years ago. People did not usedto wake up and check their Iphones, amazing: Never Be Like You.


5. All their fantasies, talk to them like they are real, why can’t they be Ed Sheeran or Adele.


6. Remember, they chose you because they knew you were the right ones to prepare them for their unique bright future: Everyone is Different!!


7. To learn what you’re best at, or what you’re most passionate about, you have to throw a lot against the wall.


8. That which is not, can you imagine that?,or what they are singing about in this song: Being Kind.


9. The more we walk towards community, the more powerful our uniqueness becomes as we play our unique role in creatig it, without the I.


10. One of the more stranger things I have read of HHDL: Problem.


11. What is the definition of Unique, anyway:




  • 1. a unique person or thing.


  • 1. being the only one of its kind; unlike anything else: “the situation was unique in modern politics” synonyms: distinctive, distinct, individual, special, idiosyncratic, single, sole, lone, unrepeated, unrepeatable, solitary, exclusive, rare, uncommon, unusual, sui generis, one-off, one-of-a-kind, once-in-a-lifetime, one-shot


12. This would make a great mantra to repeat everyday: Whole Lotta Love.


13. Turn the tap off!!


14. This is why I have such respect for true teachers, their ability to send each student home with their sense of uniqueness intact is amazing: Believing In Me.


15. I came across that quote the other day about having the same 24 hours as HHDL, Mother Teresa, Nelson Mandela, Malala. It lies on the other side of fear.

So in seeking your uniqueness what blessings have becomes excesses. In excess, most thingstake on the characteristic of their opposite. Pacifists become miltants, freedom fighters become tyrants, Blessings become curses, Help becomes hndrances. More becomes Less. In the midst of overwhelm, is life not showing me exactly what I should subtact, Am I having a breakdown or a breakthrough. Being unique takes work and it is easy to become complacent.

The music today is two kids songs, a 70’s classic from Led Zep and a tribute to  my dad and sister Ruth.

Namste until next time my dear friends.


I will walk by Faith!!

I am revisiting 15 Things You Should Give Up to Be Happy – An Inspiring Guide to Discovering Effortless Joy by Luminita D. Saviuc, AKA The Purpose Fairy: Here’s the list. I opened the book to the section on Chapter 7 – Give up complaining: I thought for a moment about turning to another page but realised that this was meant to be the subject of todays blog, to have some faith in life. Luminita likes quotes, as I do and here is the one that opens the chapter:

People who never achieve happiness are the ones who complain

whenever they’re awake, and whenever they’re asleep.

they are thinking about that to complain about tomorrow – Adam Zimbler

So how do tyou say don’t complain 15 different ways – let’s have a look:


1. My friends and I tried this for 30 days once, the furtherest anyone made it was 5 days, and they were probably lying.


2. We are the creators of our lives, when we are complaining about it, not many candles burning: Candlelight.


3. Warm Fuzzy Feeling, reminds me of lolly gobble bliss bombs, an Australian snack food released in the seventies. Lolly Gobble Bliss Bombs were known for their colourful packaging, which featured surreal psychedelic artwork, reminiscent of Peter Max, Robert Crumb or The Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers.


4. I would love the time back from the things I have complained about in my life that truthfully I could not change: Changes. 


5. You love, You appreciate, that makes you smile , That ……….


6. There are people we remember because they did things to make wrongs right: Martin, Nelson, Malala: Join them or become quiet: Try Everything.


7. Is cursing showing you have a lesser use of your total vocabulary, I think so in this situation.


8. My Essence for this quarter in my year long Activation program is Acceptance, if happiness is thrown in I will be stoked: Happy.


9. Katrina Mayer earned a doctorate in metaphysics from the American Institute of Holistic Theology. She is a writer, motivational speaker, corporate executive, and an ordained interfaith minister. The author of The Mustard Seed Way,she lives on the north shore of Long Island, New York.


10. The spirits have spoken: new world paradigm – a transformed world: Yesterday.
11. They say we choose when we decide to become a human being. Why do so many people forget the total gift this is?
12. Mathematically, the 80/20 rule is roughly followed by a power law distribution (also known as a Pareto distribution) for a particular set of parameters, and many natural phenomena have been shown empirically to exhibit such a distribution: Tim Ferriss 80/20 principle.
13. Robin Sharma, The Monk who sold his Ferrari points to one solution, don’t sleep as long , you have 24 hours in the day the same as everybody else, use it so it works.
14. As a proofreader I can’t believe it when people misspell words and actually print things, is that a complaint: Don’t Speak.
15. The last time you will ever use these words or thoughts.
If you took one-tenth of the energy you put into complaining
and applied it to solving the problem, you’d be surprised
by how well things can work out… Complaining does not work
as a strategy. We all have finite time and energy. Anytime we 
spend whining is unlikely to help us achieve our goals.
And it won’t make us happier – Randy Pausch
The music today – Bollywood, Bowie, That Happy Song, a chat from Tim Ferriss, and a few pop divas, enjoy.
Namaste until next time, my dear friends

A Hero’s Guidepost – Stay Open to Mystery!!

Some more brilliant words from Lissa Rankin as I work my way through her excellent book the Anatomy of A Calling: The Website.

Its easy to think we can understand the world and how it works. But then if things happen that we can’t explain, it can lead to discomfort, disorientation and even denial. When something happens that disrupts your story of how the world works, be curious. Don’t worry too much about explaining your experience. The need to know arises from the mind, which can’t begin to fathom what your heart knows is possible. What if “How”and “Why” were not the most important questions, the ones that actually help us live?. When you’re willing to stop being an expert on life, you open yourself to magic. You let life be the teacher and humble yourself as the perpetual student. That’s when the real fun begins.”

So those signs you receive in your life, do you take notice of them or do you know that it just wouldn’t work out. Lets look at some signs sayings, there are some great ones:


1. The best job I ever had in my career as editor of a national Community Development journal called Community Quarterly would have never happened if I had ignored the poorly handwritten flier – volunteers wanted in St Kilda that day in the library.


2. This is why The Universe has your Back by Gabby Bernstein is another of my favourite books, great training in listening for the signs, she also does a quote card pack: Manifesto.


3. A place definitely not to look is in your head, when you feel that energy flowing through your body, follow it to its source.


4. The cat is about to head off and find Aladdin’s Caves: Follow the Sun.


5. You don’t only get one on life. My friend Thea writes a daily, 365 days a year book. Don’t hold on when you are meant to let go.


6. We have all heard the classic joke about the man ignoring God’s messages. It may not always make sense, but we all know when our intuition is speaking to us loud and clear. Stop ignoring it: Intuition.


7. A life without borders, what level of trust would that take where we could follow each and every sign.


8. I have a friend who when she travels chooses to go the road less travelled, to follow the crooked roads. She sometimes gets lost, but  her adventures are of legend: True Colours.


9. This is one sign we do not want in our relationships, practice telling your disempowered and empowered sacred love stories to each other.


10. Replace tequila with your favourite drink, mines water: Tequila.


11. I think this signs for me.


12. I think the message here is to not give the wrong signs and actions out: Hit the Road Jack.


13. Words do not get results, words with actions that follow do.


14. And don’t forget to listen to the ones of Self-Love: That’s why You’re beautiful.


15. And these are probably the most powerful signs we receive. I call it the person you would most like to ravish in your life. Thats my sacred love story about these signs in our life.

What mysteries have happened in your life, those people you thought about who SMS’d you a minute later. That dream you had years ago about the place you are now in and you  know that you have been there before, these are your signs to listen too and follow.

Namaste until next time, my dear friends.

A Happy Heart makes the face Free!!

A. WAY more healthy and effective

C. MUCH more able to make a contribution to the world around you.

You can look at it this way, in epic proportions: The planet needs you to be working from your joy, Humanity depends on you doing what’s meaningful to you. The future of civilization is counting on your fulfilling. No pressure. Here’s the micro perspective: You deserve to be lit up by what you do in the world. it’s your life.

There has been much said about being free and clear in our lives, here’s my selection:

15. Not sure why I chose this one. We are all students and teachers, get out there and fulfill life.

Namaste until next time, my dear friends around the world from Melbourne, Australia

I am willing to witness my Fear!!

How do you experience Miracles? The more you choose gratitude, forgiveness and love, the more miracles you expect to experience in your life. A miracle can be a moment when you give up a resentment you have held on to with a sibling for years and years, or losing that jib free you up to follow your true calling. It’s like choosing fear over love, each time you do this you have performed a miracle for all the people involved.

How has society defined a miracle over time, here is the definition currently used

  1. an extraordinary and welcome event that is not explicable by natural or scientific laws and is therefore attributed to a divine agency.
    “the miracle of rising from the grave”
    synonyms: supernatural phenomenon, mysteryprodigysign

    “his first miracle was to turn water into wine”
    • a remarkable event or development that brings very welcome consequences.
      “it was a miracle that more people hadn’t been killed”
    • an exceptional product or achievement, or an outstanding example of something.
      “a machine which was a miracle of design”
      synonyms: wondermarvelsensationphenomenon, astonishing feat, amazing achievement

      “Germany’s economic miracle”


    So what have people said over time about it, let’s have a look:


    1. The first one sounds like the Just Do It mentality, the latter that you could live an extraordinary life, go Albert.


    2. Mum Coach Mia Redrick puts it down to thoughts creating miracles. I think it also required body activation: You Sexy Thing.


    3. You are nearly there, and baby it’s getting tough in the bleachers.


    4. Another way of saying everything is a miracle or a gift from the curly haired wise man: Don’t Wait.


    5. This type of love seems to be a miracle these days. Inhale it in!!


    6. The possibility of magnificence, awaken your spirit to this and the miracle will flow in: So Much Magnificence.


    7. Where is your change room? In your head or your heart.


    8. Drink it in, Yes, this is true. So you have had at least one miracle occur in your life. Let’s get out there and create some others: Great Balls of Fire.


    9. They say the way to enlightenment is to give up everything you know. This then allows for possibility to enter it.


    10. Looking up who Rebecca West was I just had to include this quotes as well: People call me a feminist whenever I express sentiments that differentiate me from a doormat or a prostitute.: Hard out Here.


    11. Make this a real part of your day.


    12. Looking for your miracles, remember to focus on your why as well: Start with Why.


    13. I just loved this images, it needs no words to be miraculous.


    14. The worlds greatest miracle: the birth of our offspring. 


    15. They say there is an experiment that can be done that demonstrates people who have taken the same way to work for years do not notice over 50 percent of what they pass by. Time to see the miracles.

    Miracles are held to be humongous, and that is why people do not declare their lives as being so. I think it time to take on From Little Things, Big Things Grow.

    Namaste until next time, my dear friends.
