It has been a heck of a journey... the last 7 years

The number 7 comes up a lot in my life...What has happened in your last 7 years?

I think if we all took the time to reflect we would probably surprise ourselves in one way or another. We all lead such busy lives these days. A lot happens but is there a 'rudder' in your life? An intent or purpose or are you just being buffeted from one thing to another?

As Tolkien said in Lord of the Rings... you want to be careful going outside, every path can lead to adventures. Looking back I don't think I was particularly looking for an adventure... but as time passed that is exactly what happened. Adventures do change us, being out of our comfort zone is no easy place to be, but it is where we grow. Some brief highlights of my own journey follow. They represent some pretty key shifts in my consciousness over the 7 years...

I first answered the call back in 2011. We had witnessed the financial crash in 2007, the world would never be the same again. There was huge hope though. The Internet…

Who are 'THEY' and what do they want?

I've heard myself say it countless times and I hear it said every day too. That's what 'they' want... that's what 'they' are trying to do... 'they' are conditioning and brainwashing us...

Who are these people, 'they'? it's an interesting question. If you take the view that a few unbelievably wealthy people are controlling huge sectors of our world and are influential in making global events happen such as wars, terrorism, regime change and a whole lot more... then 'they' could be narrowed down to a 60 or 70 people. Their combined wealth being estimated at approaching 50% of the global wealth... and all this wealth in the hands of a very small 'coach load' of people.

Although the disparity between those with such incredible wealth and the vast numbers of people on this planet with hardly anything at all is not acceptable, we live in a society that actually condones it.

If we want to get to the bottom of who 'they'…

It can't be Christmas every day... why not?

I remember growing up and thinking to myself how amazing it would be if every day was Christmas.

Presents every day... people being nice to each other... helping each other out... much kinder than at other times. Seemed like a good idea to me!

... but then I was reminded of a story from my younger days about two children, one of whom ate just sweet things and the other that ate more salty foods... the one who ate just sugar and sweets became very ill because although feeding the 'sweet tooth' it was an unbalanced diet and 'too much of a good thing' was equally bad for you.

This year I stayed in the UK with my family and had a chance to reflect on what for me was a typical Christmas of my childhood and early adult life... It has been 3 years (or more) since I last did the "English Christmas" of my childhood days, and things look very different to me now. I don't think it is the fact that I'm older and as people often say the magic goes out of Christmas …
