What They Didn’t Tell Us About Life.

It’s how I came to search for ethical Truth and look what I found.

It’s in my new 104 page book.

In what seems a lifetime ago a chance meeting with a Librarian who became a close friend opened a door that I found I couldn’t resist.

Was there more to life than meets the eye?

So began my own lifelong search I tell the story of my meeting with the Librarian in the first chapter of this book.

The following 17 chapters tell of unusual personal experiences that followed that reveal my quest to find it.

As if I had opened the door to the answers I was seeking.

Although I didn’t know it.

A second evolution.

Parallel lives.

The secret of Destiny.

What our soul can tell us.

The unknown cause of climate change.

The ethical nature-affirming culture that’s already changing the planet for good.

How we can change the world ourselves.

All in easy-to-read bite-size chapters you can digest quickly.

Young Is The New Old.

Why Not.

What’s stopping us from staying young.

Even when we’re feeling a little bit old.

Is ‘old’ such a dirty word.

Because old can be the new young.

Easy.

Your body will follow your mind.

How your mind works is the secret to how your body works.

Yes, your body can be the result of regular visits to the gym.

But doesn’t your mind tell you to go?

Your mind is really a control freak.

It’ll tell you if it thinks you need it.

And have you been told lately?

About anything.

About what your mind tells you that you need?

Even what your body tells you what you need.

You don’t always need to visit the gym

What do you need?

Yoga?

Stretching?

Meditation?

Walking the dog?

You’ll be told.

Are you listening?

As a winner of an award for excellence in business creativity said:

“I just trust my beeps.”

Start listening to your beeps and there’s a good chance you may be an award winner too.

Even for turning your age into an example of the New Young.

Read the book Ageless Body, Timeless Mind’ by Dr Deepak Chopra.

Everyone should read it.

I have no financial interest, I just believe in it’s message.

And its author.

It’s how we can stay younger healthier longer.

At least we should do something about keeping our minds and bodies going long after the ‘old’ word takes hold.

It’s certainly not in my vocabulary.

I wish you long life and a happy one.

Neil.

Read about a massive Regency cover-up in my new non-fiction book HERE.

I’m Really Only One Year Old.

That is, if I lived on Uranus.

But then, if I lived on Neptune I would only be half a year old (and a bit).

So on this planet Earth it seems like I’m getting old.

On Uranus or Neptune I’m just a baby.

On the other hand, if I lived on Mercury I would be 350 years old.

How embarrassing to admit that.

The point is, age is only related to the number of times our planet, whichever one, revolved around the sun.

We speak of our age as if it’s a given, always a fixed number.

Maybe we’re only as old, or as young, as we feel.

Let’s stop talking about our age as if it’s a given.

A fixed number.

It’s only the number of times the Earth has revolved around the sun.

Here’s another point.

Maybe if we started thinking of ourselves as how we feel, our emotional and mental age, that might be a different story.

Then maybe, through the power of thought, we would actually become that age.

There’s a book Ageless Body, Timeless Mind’ by Deepak Chopra.

Everyone should read it.

It’s how we can stay younger healthier longer.

At least we should do something about keeping our minds and bodies going long after the ‘old’ word takes hold.

It’s certainly not in my vocabulary.

How Can We Change The World (Sustainably)?

I tried to change the world back in the ’70s.
With reverence for Nature.
Sustainably.
It was called Permaculture.
It was a brilliant concept.
To create a permanent, self-sustaining, life-affirming culture.
A culture that respected the land beneath us.
I’ve written a book about this and other sustainable concepts to change the world.
Ideas we can all, individually as well as collectively, use right now.
Get it here.

Permaculture is about working with
rather than against Nature.

Created over 40 years ago by two
academics from the University of Tasmania,
Prof. Bill Mollison and David Holmgren,
today it’s a successful worldwide
phenomenon that’s changing communities
and transforming lives.
Small communities are thriving where
before they were poverty stricken and failing.

Permaculture is greening the planet, a
little at a time, and I hope this social saviour
continues to change the world.

From whole communities to suburban
backyards it’s use of plants and clever design
principles is creating an intelligent solution to
the realistic use of Nature to enhance lives.
For years I’d been reading copies of the
‘Organic Gardening’ Magazine and studying
the principles of organic gardening, no-dig
gardening, chemical-free gardening and other
sustainable self-sufficient ways of living.
Then along came the new Permaculture
and I threw myself into learning about it.
I bought a copy of their new book
‘Permaculture One’.
I was there at their weekend workshop
in the Dandenong Ranges in Victoria where I
sat with other enthusiasts including Professor
Bill Mollison, one of the founders, and the
Deputy Prime Minister, Dr Jim Cairns, who at
that time was leader of the new Down-to Earth
movement and was leading the record anti-Vietnam War protests in Melbourne.
We bought a cottage on an acre of land
near the town of Daylesford fully planning to
create my own Permaculture acre and move
in to live my own self-sustainable life off the grid.

My dream never happened. Then.
For a few years my peaceful cottage in
Victoria’s Central Highlands was my sanity
retreat from the stressful world of advertising
in Melbourne which was heading downhill to
eventual land me bankrupt.
I had to sell my Permaculture dream to
help finance my fast disappearing business.
I never recovered.
Fifty years later I feel the time has arrived to look again.
“The only ethical decision,” said Bill
Mollison,“ is to take responsibility for our own
existence and that of our children.”

Love and Peace.

What Does Your Soul Look Like?

“What is a soul,” enquired the little boy of his father (Cary Grant) in the 1958 movie ‘Houseboat’?

Your soul is like a vast ocean., he replied as they dangled their bare legs over the deck of their houseboat, gazing out across the water.

Created maybe aeons ago.

At first, let’s say, the water was crystal clear.

Natural.

Pure.

Then you had your first lifetime, maybe aeons ago.

You had a body, maybe not even physical, but a body of some kind.

And that first body needed life.

To stay with the same ocean metaphor, a life was drawn from that pure ocean like a bucket of water taken from it.

So that bucketful of water, your essence of your new life, was added to your physical body.

Your body, in whatever form, then had life.

At that point you became a living being.

Full of life.

Your soul is like the ocean and the water drawn from that ocean is the essence, a fragment, a reflection of the ocean.

It is a part of your soul but not you soul, if you know what I mean.

Same but different.

Connected but apart from the ‘mother soul’.

That’s how I remember the conversation.

Maybe I’ve editorialised just a little to fit my own thinking.

With each lifetime, let’s say, you had adventures and experiences.

And let’s say that every experience, every emotion, everything we learn is a colour and,, over time, each bucketful of water taken from the vast ocean becomes coloured.

Each bucketful of water is emptied into the vast ocean at the end of each lifetime.

Over the years that ocean is coloured with the waters of our lives.

Ending up today, let’s say, with soul ocean coloured by every lifetime we’ve ever had.

So with each bucketful taken from an ocean of coloured water we begin a new life coloured by our past.

A past we probably don’t remember.

And so we enter every new life with an essence of our many, many pasts.

Only to add more colours this time.

We are both our soul and an essence of soul.

This essence contains many clues to our present including our Destiny.

Is this your idea of soul?

Love and Peace.

Neil.
