  • The importance of living life in openness

    I just had an incredible day of creative development with my team. Feeling deeply fulfilled, I took a wander outside and was instantly greeted by this magnificent magnolia that had opened into full bloom. What a beauty! What joy it brought me to see this creation. It seemed to be the perfect reflection of the day I just had - feeling grateful that I work with souls who share the principles of working in deep…

  • If we really want to live in Truth we need to be prepared, because everything that is false will have to be dismantled first.

    If we really want to live in Truth we need to be prepared, because everything that is false will have to be dismantled first. This premise underlies all change. Whether personal or collective - the old must go for the new to be born. Why then are we afraid of this process? We have been taught to fear change, to fear disruption. But the reality is, we can’t avoid this. This is the fundamental nature…

  • Our leaders need to know that deflection and avoidance will not work anymore.

    Our leaders need to know that deflection and avoidance will not work anymore. Our leaders need to know that our eyes are OPEN. We are awake to what is happening. We SEE them. We SEE what they are doing, what is happening, what is being done and what is not. And we are saying - WE ARE NOT LOOKING AWAY. We are saying to our leaders, to those in power, you must open your eyes,…

  • Australia is facing an extreme crisis of catastrophic proportions

    We are in the midst of a crisis of unprecedented levels. The fires here in Australia are so extensive and like “nothing we have ever seen before.” More than 100 fires are burning across the eastern coast. NSW has declared a state of emergency for seven days. 600 schools have been closed. So far 3 human lives have been lost, countless creatures and wildlife has been devastated and more than 200 homes destroyed. And to…

  • Your habits will either wake you up or keep you asleep

    Your habits will either wake you up or keep you asleep. It’s not like you’re just a jack-in-the-box waiting for some mystical force to open the lid. You don’t just spring into consciousness - one minute asleep and the next you’re all enlightened. It’s an incremental journey. And that process builds momentum over many years of habits and events. Eckhart Tolle didn’t just suddenly wake up - he fertilised his mind for many many years.…

  • Water is life.

    The level of complacency in big business and government around our water resources seems incomprehensible. Here in Australia, we are in an extended severe drought. Entire towns have run out of water or are just about to, and yet as a nation we have not given this the attention it needs or deserves. This is not just ignorance, it is negligence. The sad truth is - most of us know this but feel helpless. We…

  • To free yourself from anxiety, you must restore trust in your self

    Anxiety and depression are on the rise. The early years of the 21st century have witnessed a worldwide epidemic of poor mental health and related illnesses. But while depression is the condition most will associate with mental health issues, anxiety disorders tip the scales. Globally an estimated 284 million people experience anxiety, making it the most prevalent mental health or neurodevelopmental disorder. Around 62% of those suffering from anxiety are female. Amongst the various forms…

  • Today is a significant day

    Today is a significant day. Today, the sacred rock - Uluru - was reinstated as the sacred place it is: as a place of ancient, historical and current relevance. She is truly a center: of power, of ancient lore, creation laws, a universe of past present and future dreaming. She is the sacred ground of our First Nation people, of our ancestors, past, present and future. She is the creation field, a source of anchored…

  • Now that I’ve got your attention

    This is an attention seeking post!  Well, that is actually the truth. However, the question is a matter of attention for and within you. The more you can master your own attention the more you will master your own life experience. This is why I teach breathing methods as a foundation for awakening - it is the easiest and most direct way to strengthen the quality of attention.  Benefits of Attention:  When you develop your…

  • To be connected with earth is to be connected with life

    The lifestyle of our modern world is so distanced and cut off from Earth it’s no wonder most people feel so depleted of life. We are living in an insulated, artificial world. We separate the soles of our feet from the ground, and therefore from the soul of Earth. We close ourselves in concrete towers unable to receive the vitality of earth's living towers - the ancient forests and mountains. Without our living connection with…

  • The mind does like to wander, doesn’t it?

    The mind does like to wander doesn’t it? If you’re not careful it will take you all over the place, down dark avenues, into haunted basements, along a cliff edge, round and round a merry-go-round...  Here’s the thing, the mind really does have an endless scope of pathways it can take, so if you’re not in charge of it you can easily end up in places you don’t really want to be. That’s because the…

  • It’s deep connection that fulfills us, not possessions.

    Have you noticed how addicted to material things humans are? Have you ever wondered why? How can we be so driven to seek possessions when the thing we most deeply yearn for is connection?  At the most immediate level the problem is in marketing. We are sold an emotional story - that’s what makes a successful product. Not necessarily the object itself - but the story associated with it. But this only works so well…

  • Day Zero. The dates rivers and dams that supply water are expected to run out

    Meanwhile, in Australia - the driest continent in the world (aside from Antarctica) - we are experiencing an extreme and prolonged drought - one of the worst in decades. That last line in the above image says: major rural towns run completely dry.  That’s not just oh, there’s not much water. Read it again.... COMPLETELY DRY. And our government is considering extending expansive coal mining rights into 2048 - to mines directly responsible for depleting…

  • That is not a life. This is

    What a dilemma we are in. We all recognise the destructiveness of our lifestyle - yet most struggle to break free of the consumer cycle. Humans are addicts. Self destructing ones. The irony is we know it, but we still deny it, ignore it or blatantly continue it.  WHY?? Because we have emotional attachment to whatever is familiar. Why do you think advertising agencies bombard us from every direction with emotional campaigns that convince you…

  • No amount of money, oil or gold is worth more than the trees, bees, and healthy reefs

    There are some things in the world we cannot do without - clean air and water, healthy soil, biodiversity and a balanced environment. These are fundamental to life - without these we suffer and deplete life. We in fact put the future life of ourselves and all creatures in great peril.  Other things like capitalism, currency, materialism and the economy are not fundamental forces of nature. We invented them. They are not immutable. We can…

  • This is a tragedy. The Amazon rainforest is burning at an unprecedented rate, and is directly related to deforestation

    This is a tragedy. The Amazon rainforest is burning at an unprecedented rate, and is directly related to deforestation. The fires are lit to clear land for cattle ranching - responsible for as much as 80% of the ongoing deforestation. FACTS: the Amazon is the world’s largest tropical rainforest - about half the size of the U.S. and responsible for more than 20% of the worlds oxygen - this is our planet's living lungs! In…

  • Violence is escalating throughout the world, particularly at a societal level.

    Violence is escalating throughout the world, particularly at a societal level. Take the record of mass murders in the U.S. As of July 31, 2019, 248 mass shootings have occurred in 2019 (alone). This averages out to 1.2 shootings per day. In these shootings, 979 people were injured and 246 died (for a total of 1,325 victims). There have been more than 110 mass shootings in the US since 1982, according to investigative magazine Mother…

  • A very human, deeply spiritual need

    When we take a close look at our most inherent needs we discover that, other than food and shelter, our most common need is love – to love and be loved. We only have to look at our hopes and fears for confirmation of this. Just scratch the surface of our beings and we find one of our biggest – the fear being alone. This runs not just at the surface of our humanness, but…

  • One of the things I most love is to wake at dawn and start the day with the rising sun

    One of the things I most love is to wake at dawn and start the day with the rising sun. Some of the latest studies have proven the ancient ritual of meditating with sunrise has more benefits than we might first imagine. Not only is this good for us spiritually, it is good for our overall well being. Here are just a few of the benefits.  Boosts production of melatonin and serotonin. Research shows sungazing…

  • Rediscovering true health

    We live in a fast-paced world and we all know that this can have detrimental effects on our health and well-being. Stress and illness can result if we allow ourselves to be swept along with the frenzy of life. But it doesn’t have to be this way! Leisure is still one of the most vital factors for a life of healthy well-being. One of my favourite regular activities is to take a walk along the…
