An idea that is developed and put into action

is more important than an idea that exists only as an idea.

meditation Grampians

My wife and I meditating at the top of the Grampian mountains on New Years Day 2015.

I would like to take a moment to thank you all for all your follows, your comments and your support during 2014 and for the friendship and love you have sent me from all around the world.

Love, compassion and awareness of life and the world we live in is what I stand for, I try my best to promote these things through my blog and my daily activities, it is not always easy, there are often set-backs, challenges and sometimes even extremely negative and abusive responses and comments to my posts, I do however take these negative comments in my stride and think of all  for the love and support that you guys give me which in turn provides me with the strength to continue on in the hope that we can together help make change.

May and I had the opportunity to spend Christmas and New Year in Australia this year, we spent most of our time in nature, meditating and connecting with the beauty and spirit of Australia's outback, the positive energy, the weather, the trees and the mountains gave us strength and we are both re-energized to do even more this year :)

The dawn of 2015 brought about the sad deaths of 36 people in Shanghai, the city where we live, those souls were lost to our world after a deadly stampede on New Year’s Eve killed 36 and caused the cancellation of celebrations across the city. At least 47 people were injured, including 40 still serious enough to required hospitalization, the Shanghai government said on its website. "The stampede -- the city’s deadliest disaster since 2010 -- started about 11:35 p.m. on New Year’s Eve as tens of thousands of people crowded into the historic Bund riverside district for a light show".


My prayers go out to those who are no longer with us and to their families and friends during this time of sorrow, may their souls rest in peace.

2015, what will it bring us?

I do hope that 2015 will bring about greater self realization, more compassion and a greater understanding of our world to us all. For us to work together in the name of peace and move forward towards a happier world where we can all live without the need for war, where we actively work together as one to find ways in which we can bring about the end of poverty, feed the hungry and save our environment from the ravages and destruction of our insatiable greed for more!...We can, I believe; achieve great things in 2015, we are on our way, our voices are now at last being heard, the powers that be are now starting to take notice, we can make a difference, we can bring about change.

I know you are there and I am very happy!

Namaste with Love

Fame or Life,

Which do you hold more dear?

Or Life or Wealth,

To which would you adhere?

Keep Life and Loose

those other things; keep them

and loose your Life?

Which brings sorrow

and pain

more near?

Thus we may see,

who cleaves to fame

Rejects what is

more great; who

loves large

stores gives up

the richer state.

Who is content

needs fear no

shame. Who

knows to stop

Incurs no blame.

From danger

free long live

shall he.

Once, a group of students met an old lady sitting at the pavement under a lamp post searching for something.

They soon discovered that she had lost a needle. So they offered to help.

They searched high and low for it but to no avail.

Then, one of the students asked. “Auntie, where did you drop the needle?” The old lady replied, “ I dropped it in my room but it is too dark to search there, the pavement is much brighter…”

In life, we pursue and search everywhere endlessly for peace and happiness. But we forget that all these come from within us, our own heart,not elsewhere outside of us.

Just because somewhere else looks brighter doesn’t mean we can find what we want by searching for it there.

Peace and happiness is all within

If a man is crossing a river

and an empty boat collides with his own skiff,

Even though he be a bad-tempered man

He will not become very angry.

But if he sees a man in a boat,

He will shout at him to steer clear

If the shout is not heard,

He will shout again,

And yet again, and begin cursing.

And all because there is somebody in the boat.

Yet if the boat were empty,

He would not be shouting.

And not be angry.

If you can empty your own boat

Crossing the river of the world,

No one will oppose you,

No one will seek to harm you.
