Disharmony and exhaustion occurs when vital energy is thrown away by the erratic action of the nervous system. Emotion, stress and nervous tension are the greatest leakage of personal life force known to mankind.

Many years ago, especially in Indigenous communities, people were in tune with nature. Nature’s harmony and the human happiness were considered one. What happened outside of us, happened within.

Resilience is a gift, but if it means just fighting off trouble, it is an automatic problem. Like “saving for a rainy day” has an expectation built into it. If you are not perfect already how will you ever be perfect? The habit of chasing is also the habit of causing, expecting and measuring. Nothing […]

Who would promote a stressed, emotionally drained, worried, tired and hunched over in sadness individual? Only a cruel individual would add another KG to the back of an overloaded camel.

When the wealthy tycoon died, someone asked, “how much did he leave?” and the answer came, “everything.” I think we forget this and in the course of our lives start to worry about the livelihood of those we leave behind. This is nice. However, there are some things we hang onto that don’t serve us […]

As above so below: it’s a great quote for those looking to live authentic lives – it means something different for everyone. For me, a student of nature, it means big theories (opinions) are fantasies unless we can also witness what we say (opinion) in small things too. Here, the picture of BONDI looks wonderful […]

There is no better metaphor for excellence than weight lifting. A 73Kg person from China has the world record for clean and jerk of 169 kg… more than twice their body weight. For Women, 71kg person, 152 kg. The difference is negligible. For the unlimited weight person, men, the record is 265 kg, for women […]

People pleasing has a bad reputation. It seems when things go wrong we easily blame it for lost direction. But is it so wrong? Every entertainer does it. Every entrepreneur thrives on it.

It’s Sunday morning, 7am, I’m still in bed. It’s a rare thing, I’m usually up coaching someone or walking the beach doing podcasts, or at the least riding my bike. But today is different.
