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’m going to see the World!!

How do you see the world? Gabrielle Bernstein says you can change the way through the statement – When i lean on certainty and faith I change my mind about the World I See. What does she  mean by this statement? Is it that when you believe in what you believe in you do not have to fall for what mainstream media is trying to push down your throat what you are meant to believe about what goes on day to day.

Let’s have a look at ways to do this, there are many:


1. Do you open up your creativity to see the many different ways that it permits you to relate to the extraordinary journey that our lives are.


2. I recently learnt that I had very western values about the Chinese culture when I became an English tutor for three Chinese mothers. I learnt as much each lesson about China as they did about the English language each lesson. It’s a great way to find out how sheltered how you see the world is: Curious.


3. I watched a documentary about Romania, the host was appearing on a fashion reality show as thousands of people were protesting on the streets because the government were trying to legitimise corruption.


4. How much do we owe to the photographers that travel the world and capture the images that make us go : I’ve never thought that way about that place. Alex Sattler is one of them: Photograph.


5. I Think Maya is giving permission to young women to listen to their hearts and not what the fashion magazines tell them is their role in life with this statement.


6. Dali and Picasso see the world very differently to a landscape or portrait artist. Yet each is revealing his soul on the canvas: Art for Arts Sake.


7. I was in Leningrad the year before the Berlin Wall came down and Communism ended in the Soviet Union, the people we meant said they loved Russia, but they just made a mistake 70 years ago, Now known as St. Petersburg, it is a beautiful city.


8. My sister takes thousands of photo’s when she travels the world, I don’t think one of them is of the local airport: Leaving on a Jet Plane.


9. You don’t need to leave your lounge room, to have these if you are , curious that is. Although I imagine that will not be the case.


10. Shaw’s expressed views were often contentious; he promoted eugenics and alphabet reform, and opposed vaccination and organised religion. He courted unpopularity by denouncing both sides in the First World War as equally culpable, He really meant keep yourself clean and bright: Windows of the World.


11. How would life be, if this statement was true for each of us every day.


12. The general theme of Rumi’s thought, like that of other mystic and Sufi poets of Persian literature, is that of tawhid — union with the Beloved, from whom he sees himself as being cut off and aloof. His longing and desire to attain it is evident in the following poem from his book the Masnavi:

I died to the mineral state and became a plant,
I died to the vegetable state and reached animality,
I died to the animal state and became a man,
Then what should I fear? I have never become less from dying.
At the next charge (forward) I will die to human nature,
So that I may lift up (my) head and wings (and soar) among the angels,
And I must (also) jump from the river of (the state of) the angel,
Everything perishes except His Face,
Once again I will become sacrificed from (the state of) the angel,
I will become that which cannot come into the imagination,
Then I will become non-existent; non-existence says to me (in tones) like an organ,
Truly, to Him is our return: Rumi, The Beloved.


13. So are our opinions of people, as this is what we see people doing.


14. The Chinese certainly have some quirky quotes, but they always hit home: Plant more Trees.


15. So, remember to be curious and question what you think you can see or are told about our beautiful planet, or the above statement may be true.

We have the opportunity each day to do something about the planet, is it because we do not have the faith and certainty that what we believe is worthwhile or is necessarily true. It’s time to stand up for it.

Namaste until next time, my dear friends.

You’re not a jar of Nutella

What am I writing about with a title like that? It’s a feisty one. I recieved Danielle LaPortes Free and Clear process – It’s about what are you going to stop doing, I write something everyday in my 2017 Desire Map Daily Planner and it is not that easy some days ten months in. I spoke to my Activation  buddy heather about who stated, why would you do that, I think that if you want new stuff/time in your life that you have to remove old stuff to get the space for the new stuff, lot’s of stuff, huh.

So I put stop doing things quotes in google images and from the result there is not a lot of focus on this over time, there were about thirty versions of three quotes, lets see if you can guess which ones they were of the following fifteen I have chosen:


1. What in you life do you do because you have always done it? When did people stop appreciating you for it. Over to you, you know what to do.


2. I was watching two young children filling in time the other night, they are definitely as far away from death as one could be moment to moment: Raise your Glass.


3. You don’t have to stop doing those things that touch you in your heart and soul, they are special.



4. A suggestion for things you should stop doing, if they are not in your present presence, it’s time to say ta ta: Rolling in the Deep.


5. And these are the things you definitely should not stop.


6. I like the name of the webpage – The possibiltyoftoday.com and the message to stop reacting to things you have no control over: Island in the Sun.


7. Why do we need to create space? This quote points to exactly why.


8. Wise words from Tom. And it has to be my favourite Tom Waits tune: Heart Attack and Vine.


9. We all don’t have to save the world with the things we do. But I love how Mother Teresa suggests we do it.


10. Word: Try Everything.


11. And then again there are these things we could easily stop doing, or is it that easy?


12. I don’t know what to say about this, many will disagree: Loyalty


13. If you are struggling with things you could stop doing, here’s a few ideas.


14. Permanent people, how many are there in your life: A Permanent Hug from You.


15. Thomas could be one of several people, he may even be from the 15th century, but its a bit hard to tell. So never ever ever stop doing this.

Danielle finishes her free and clear sheet with the words Tell yourself that you will Love and Protect yourself at all times. And….stop it , Thankyou Danielle.

The music is heavily leaning towards pop divas, but there is a classic Tom Waits track and a oh so cute number that has only had 13,000 hits on Youtube.

Namaste until next time my dear friends.

To move forward, you have to give Back!!

So what do you think about others? Gabby Bernstein in her book May Cause Miracles wrote the following Morning Reflection: Inner Guide, I call on you for help. I know I have chosen separation over love. For today, I choose to see everyone as equal and release my fear to your care. I wholeheartedly welcome your guidance. I ask that you teach me to perceive everyone as equal, and to see everyone as love. Teach me love through every holy encounter.

I live from five core desired feelings, one of them is H.O.P.E. – Helping Other People Evolve, because I realised a long time ago that my life was a whole lot better with empowered people in it rather than disempowered people.

So has there been much said about the empowerment of others over the centuries, let’s journey down that path:


1. Your acts of kindness may not make front page news, but for the person they are done for, they will always be remembered.


2. HHDL, the man who lives this the best on the planet, gets our prime purpose down pat: He ain’t heavy, he’s my brother.


3. Didn’t expect ot see a POTUS making this list, but what a beautiful image.


4. And how could I write about this subject without including the Queen of giving, Oprah Winfrey: Helping Others.


5. When someone ask you to help them get to where they want to, and together you achieve that, the shared joy is palpable.


6. And the rest of HHDL quote, don’t hurt others: Never going to give you Up.


7. Jet Li, actor and martial arts practitioner calls to us to believe that we all are one family and our purpose is to help each other.


8. Looking for your inner self, start doing things for others, the answer will come quickly: The best thing about me is You.


9. Actress and Humanitarian, Audrey Hepburn appeared in fewer films as her life went on, devoting much of her later life to UNICEF. She had contributed to the organisation since 1954, then worked in some of the poorest communities of Africa, South America and Asia between 1988 and 1992. She was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in recognition of her work as a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador in December 1992. A month later, Hepburn died of appendiceal cancer at her home in Switzerland at the age of 63.


10. Hang around with people who are up to making a difference with their lives, remember eagles fly above the clouds: Fly like an Eagle.


11. The motto is, you can’t do it on your own.


12. Prioritise your life, take with one, give with the other: Dancing on my Own.


13. Powerful Image, says it all.


14. Such a healthy lifestyle too: I was Here.


15. My mum need her torch at night so she can read the clock on her wall, what will you use your torch of kindness for?

Kindness created me kind. I come from love and kindness and I know this is who I am. Today I choose to remember my truth and share it with the world. Today I will spread loving-kindness to all those I encounter.

This affirmation is to remind you of who you are, a being of love.

Namaste until next time, my dear friends.











How do You ……..?

The Challenge of leading in a culture of never enough  is in chapter six of Daring Greatly which is headed Disruptive Engagement: Daring to rehumanize Education and Work. One of the questions asked in it is What’s the most significant barrier to creativity and innovation? The answer given is quite lengthy, but worth reading –

“I don’t know if it has a name, it’s the fear of introducing an idea and being ridiculed, laughed at, and belittled. If you’re willing to subject yourself to that experience and if you survive it, then  it becomes the fear of failure and the failure of being wrong. People believe they are only as good as their ideas and that their ideas can’t seem too “out there’ and that they can’t ‘know everything’ The problem is that innovative ideas often sound crazy and failure and learning are part of revolution. Evolution and incremental change is important and we need it, but we’re desperate for real revolution and that requires a different type of courage and creativity”.

The rehumanizing of work and education will take courageous leadership, so who is out there commenting on it,, let’s have a look:


1. How did you act when you were challenged, did you lead others or were you a victim to it?


2. Always remember that people you are leading have qualities that you must take in consideration: Don’t you worry Child.


3. If your people are just coming to work to collect their money at the end of the week, you are not doing your job as a leader, you are managing the Titanic just before it sinks.


4. If you train people to replace you and make yourself redundant that is closer to the mark of leadership: Mother Teresa.


5. I used to try and run away from my struggles, sometimes over a thousand kilometres, the only thing was when I got there, the reason for the struggles was still there because it was within me.


6. When I saw this I just had to include it to showcase why we should be very very afraid: Trump on Woman.


7. They can give you tips and techniques but it is what you do with them after the event that matters.


8. If you are doing it for another circumstances in your life will start to get in the way, if you are doing it for yourself, well that’s a different matter: Pony.


9. This may be the only quote by Joshua J. Marine, there is little information about who he actually is.


10. Does leadership come from the head or the heart, I’ll let you answer that: Heart of Gold.


11. One word: Leadership = Oprah.


12. The road to Leadership is not the road of less. It is in being better, more skillful and wiser: Wiser.


13. The quickest road to true leadership is to learn the lessons the first time they are revealed to you.


14. There are many books on the art of leadership out there, this quote speaks to the fact that that is what true leadership is, an artform: Art for Art’s Sake.


15. As I mentioned before in great leadership there is a quality of redundancy, that it would happen if you were not there.

So, famous people and totally obscure people make comment on leadership which means you still have the time to exhibit yours this lifetime, Go for it , we need you and it to flourish.

Namaste until next time, my dear friends.



Real Heroes don’t wear Capes!

I won a competition when I was very young dressed as a super hero. As you get older you realise that the heroes in life don’t necessarily wear capes. That heroics are much simpler than that, a smile when you feel down, a hug when you feel lonely. a dollar in a cup.

Appreciation of what they do is what people remember, it has been an ongoing battle for me as it was not a strong point in my family as I was growing up. I have to remember to say thank you as it was not something I learnt from an early age.

Acts of appreciation, what does society say about them, lets have a look:


1. Margaret Elizabeth Cousins, also known as Gretta Cousins (7 October 1878–11 March 1954) was an Irish-Indian educationist, suffragist and Theosophist, who established All India Women’s Conference (AIWC) in 1927. She was the wife of poet and literary critic James Cousins, with whom she moved to India in 1915. She is credited with composing the tune for the Indian National Anthem Jana Gana Mana in February 1919, during Rabindranath Tagore’s visit to the Madanapalle College.


2. I am not like the millions who think that the Tony Robbins documentary I am not your Guru is a classic. Too me it looks a lot like manipulation but a lot of people I respect swear by him and have done the fire walk : The Tony Robbins Experience.


3. I still remember the Japanese airline staff member who walked us to the front of the line in Kyoto airport because we were due to miss our flight as we had assumed a flight to Moscow would be international. It was domestic and we could not read the signs in 1990.


4. Expectations versus acts of Appreciation. How dull has your relationship become when your day to day actions are expected? : Someone Like You!!


5. This is not so easy to do, a dear friend of my brothers is in hospital at the moment with the possibility she will not see 50, you never expect this.


6. Bruce Wilkinson is a Christian philosopher and author who has given keynote addresses at major national and international events with stadium audiences of 80,000 or more. He has written more than 60 books that have been translated into 30 languages, including several books that reached the number one spot on the bestseller lists of The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and USA Today. Bruce’s book, The Prayer of Jabez, remains the fastest-selling book in history,  with worldwide sales exceeding 20 million. Scarlet Begonias.


7. A little known secret that can have you lead a fulfilled life.


8. The Wonder of you. A lot of songs have been written about this. Here’s the most famous by the King: The Wonder of You.


9. Aaron Polson currently lives in Lawrence, Kansas with his wife, two sons, and a tattooed rabbit. His stories have featured magic goldfish, monstrous beetles, and a book of lullabies for baby vampires. His work has seen print in Shock Totem, Blood Lite II, and Monstrous with several new stories forthcoming in Shimmer, Space and Time, and other publications. The Saints are Dead, a collection of weird fiction, magical realism, and the kitchen sink, is due from Aqueous Press in 2011. “


10. These people are rare, we usually marry them or have them as our children. Have you seen that ad were the father announces his death to get his children to come at Christmas. It says a lot about unconditional love. Here’s a disco version: Unconditional Love – Donna Summer.


11. One of the most famous quotes ever written about appreciation comes from Maya Angelou and it doesn’t even use the word.


12. When you put your love out there you are giving your power away, it lies within the life within you, the same for flowers, don’t pick them and bring them to an early death : Dead Flowers by Townes.


13. My friend Daniel started a Facebook page : Daily Gratitude Space for a forum so people could write what they appreciate daily. It has grown to over 1,000 members. Join, its a beautiful thing to do.


14. Love her or hate her, Mother Teresa’s words are still quoted 20 years after her death. There are many Indians alive today who appreciate what she did for them even though she was considered a  bit narky : Mother Teresa’s Song.


15. What can you not say about the great man who is Wayne Dyer. Who did he appreciate? Wayne Dyer stated Nisargadatta Maharaj to be his Teacher and cited the quotation, “Love says: ‘I am everything’. Wisdom says: ‘I am nothing’ from a compilation of talks on Shiva Advaita (Nondualism) philosophy I Am That. He was influenced by Abraham Maslow’s concept of self-actualization and by the teachings of Swami Muktananda, whom he considered to be his Master. In his book, Wishes Fulfilled; Mastering the Art of Manifesting, Dr. Dyer also credited Saint Francis of Assisi and the Chinese philosopher Lao Tzu as foundational influences in his work.

I appreciate all of you who read my blogs, I am in awe you are from all over the world. I was especially bemused by the person from St. Kitts who read one.

Namaste until next time, my dear friends.
