We Should Still Be Swinging From The Trees.

Evolution had not been kind with human’s physical bodies.

Do you have back problems?

Chances are, it’s evolution.

We need to deal with how evolution has screwed with us early.

It’s the other half of why we age.

One is entropy.

The other is evolution.

.How?

When we first came down from the trees we started walking upright.

It saved energy.

Everything was suddenly easier.

Huge energy saver.

But our bodies didn’t adapt soon enough to deal with this massive change.

Here’s the crunch.

They still haven’t.

Why are we all walking upright now?

Seven million years after we came down from the trees and started walking upright?

Recent studies have also suggested that, rather than taking millions of years to evolve from a hunched position as is commonly believed, our early ancestors were already capable of standing and walking upright the moment they descended from the trees.” (Live Science)

Instantly.

So have we all been walking upright prematurely?

To save energy.

Not so much as an evolutionary advance at all.

Is this the only reason, then, we are not all falling over in the street and returning to the trees?

Just so we can save energy?

But now we have supermarkets to save us energy.

So are we walking, and running, and jumping, ahead of time?

Seven million years ahead?

I know.

I have a spinal stenosis.

Messages don’t get through from my brain to my legs telling them how to walk.

After assuming that walking doesn’t come easy because, in spite of having excellent leg strength, I keep falling over, what’s happening?

Why can’t I walk?

Why must I focus on the placement of every step, one at a time, when I see others walking with ease without falling over?

I’m wondering whether it has anything to do with the evolution of humans coming out of the trees and walking upright?

Seems like, in evolutionary terms, it was instant.

Why?

Survival it seems.

To save energy.

Not any physical modification of the human/ape body to meet an evolutionary advance?

So are we stuck with a creature who has made a very physical move before its time?.

Is our body still meant to swing from the trees?

Have we beat the gun and advanced, in evolution terms, before we’re ready?

Is that why our bodies are so screwed?

So many of us with back and spinal problems?

And what physical modification has occurred in those intervening 7 million years since we came down out of the trees?

The placement of the scull on the top of the spine to cope with the upright stature.

Otherwise, I can’t find anything major.

So my immediate thoughts are

Is ageing caused by evolution?

Evolution and entropy?

Love and peace.

PS. My new book ‘Romancing Your Life. Changing The World.’

The Old Caravan In The Bush.

That was my home for 5 years.

The blue tarp was to stop the roof from leaking.

A metaphor for my life.

Like a reset.

The old caravan was like a womb and the Wombat Forest was the rest of the world.

What if I could start again.

The typical Mid-Life Crisis.

Is this the chance we all have to reset, to start again?

In the midst of what we already have?

We’ve tested the waters of our chosen career.

Maybe we’ve proved we can do it.

Or not.

Our soul is crying out to be heard.

What are we here for?

What is our true destiny?

Do you have a destiny wanting to speak?

Your caravan in the bush?

I had no choice.

My one-man freelance business went bankrupt.

I lost everything.

I had no choice but to start again.

I had to let go.

There’s a wisdom saying, Buddhist I think . . .

What you let go of, which is truly yours, shall be returned to you tenfold.

It was true for me.

I had to let go.

The Universe is there to support you.

It did me.

May the Force be with you.

I had untold adventures.

Other countries to visit.

Books to write.

Of my stories.

They’re all here.

Your destiny awaits.

Your story.

Waiting to be told.

You’ll need to have it first.

Starting from where you are,

Start and everything else will follow.

It’s my secret.

Love and peace.

Had The Adventure. Didn’t Need The Kombi.

I had the adventure.

I didn’t know what hit me.

I was gobsmacked, alone, boke, with not even a Kombi to save me.

I didn’t need it anyhow.

Because, somehow, I had the adventure.

After I went bankrupt.

I’ve written the book to tell you everything that happened.

History.

Romance.

A mystery.

And the paranormal that seemed to have my back as I ventured fourth..

Having lost everything.

Like I was being taken care of because what knew had to be told.

So here’s the thing.

I had uncovered an historical mystery.

A very true story where some lovely people were hurt.

Lovely people who were in the wrong place at the wrong time.

In Regency times.

The late 1700s in Georgian England.

The time when the King was going mad.

When those on or near the throne of England feared for their safety.

Even from losing their head.

This is the hidden story.

Because of what they knew and where they were sitting in or close to Royal circles.

There was strong anti-Catholic sentiment.

The Gordon riots.

Evidence of a secret marriage burned.

And more.

I know all this.

I’ve told it as I uncovered the hidden facts and the trail of where it might have been.

All of this as I struggled with bankruptcy and losing everything.

I encountered twists and turns in every moment.

And paranormal clues that followed my trip everywhere.

Across five countries.

Retracing their steps as I went.

Encountering romantic stopovers.

Meeting interesting people.

Having the adventure of my life.

May I share it with you.

At every stop I take you with me as the adventure unfolds.

I want it to be your adventure too.

Just read the reviews here.

Or buy the book here.

Enjoy the journey with me.

Love and peace,

Neil the Smith

Silenced.

Were they silenced for knowing the truth?

What was the truth?

I know.

I’ve written the full story and exactly how I know.

The book is the autobiography of 10 years of my life.

Following the sometimes paranormal clues.

How can they be wrong?

It’s a true paranormal mystery of the hushed up period of the Regency period of English history.

And how had the truth impacted on the present Royals?

What were Dr Desailly and his wife doing in this antipodean outpost of Van Diemen’s Land (Tasmania)?

“They held no official position, nor were they of the free settlers who were beginning to trickle into the colony,” wrote Mabel Hookey in a rare, limited edition book published over 50 years ago. “They did not swell the ranks of those unfortunates [convicts] who had left their country for their country’s good, nor were they political exiles.

“A vessel under special charter brought them to Van Diemen’s Land, and they always had plenty of money, derived from a mysterious pension, paid regularly and with great secrecy. . It was whispered that Dr Desailly’s English practice had been at the court of George IV, and that his beautiful wife had been a Lady in Waiting to Queen Caroline.

I know Dr Desailly’s Royal secret and you can read the full story HERE.

Could it possibly have had anything to do with the divorce proceedings between George IV and Queen Caroline?

Did his closely guarded secret have everything to do with children of the Prince of Wales? Maybe legitimate children from his secret marriage to Maria Fitzherbert? If so, where were they? Absolutely nothing is known of them.

Until now.

Were they conveniently dispatched on a Third Fleet ship of all-female convicts that set sail for Australia in 1791?

So where are they?

Maybe I know.

His secret died with him.

Or so it was thought – until now.

That and more is revealed in my book ‘The Great Regency Cover-Up’.

Love and peace.

How Paranormal Clues Could Spice Up History.

Have I uncovered a true mystery that would change history.?

Could I set the scene for a wow! of a story.

Yes, maybe yes.

It would be a true story.

Had I discovered a ‘prima face’ case for a real mystery that would change history?

The history of Regency England.

The history of the first white settlelers to Australia, then called New South Wales.

The facts surrounding the first settlement of Tasmania, then called Van Diemens’s Land.

Early days in white man’s occupation of New Zealand and the native Maori.

Out of my misfortune I found myself exploring five countries in person and researching.

So I wrote the book.

Took ten years.

It’s my own personal account of how I lifted myself out of the impossible to authoring a 236-page true blockbuster.

With the history side I have rewritten the history of Regency times.

With my own story, full of fun and so entertaining, I’ve written an autobiography.

“You have discerned an amazing story,” says the Writer’s Digest.

Now it’s here for you to enjoy.

And be amazed.

Have I rewritten istory?

Of Regency England.

Of New South Wales.

Of Van Diemen’s Land.

Of New Zealand.

And of the Royal children of 250 years ago.

Legitimate children who may have been sent to Australia on the Third Fleet in 1791.

And lost.

It’s a true mystery you can’t put down.

I’m Rewriting History With This True Blockbuster

In a time of crisis, of trauma, of losing everything and living in an old caravan, I found gold.

Not real gold.

Secret messages and a ghost kind of gold that led me to them.

Like Rumpelstiltskin I could weave this information into the gold of a blockbuster of a book.

A revelation.

An exposure.

Had I uncovered a true mystery that would change history.?

Could I set the scene for a wow! of a story.

Yes, maybe yes.

It would be a true story.

Had I discovered a ‘prima face’ case for a real mystery that would change history?

Only at the Bottom Can You Decide Whether to Live or Die.

What’s the most important word here?

‘Live’ or ‘Die’?

Neither.

The most important word here is ‘Only’,

Only when you have nothing, only then, can you decide.

I’ve been there, after bankruptcy, when I lost everything.

I mean everything.

Only when I had lost everything did I start to do everything differently.

Only when my back was to the wall did I start to think of new possibilities for my life.

I started to pay attention to coincidences.going on around me.

I started to pay more attention to my family.

I began to start living.

I had adventures

With nothing..

I began to start trusting.

Trusting what?

I call it the Universe.

Trusting the Universe.

“You have to trust in something – your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever.” said Steve Jobs.

“I just trust my beeps,” said a winner of a creative achievement award.

I started trusting the Universe and the files to this book fell into my lap.

For the next 10 years I spent researching and writing it.

You can find your copy of the book here.

Sure I didn’t win the lottery.

But I found so much more.

You’ll find my story in the book.

I want you to read it and see what choosing to live can bring.

Your story will be different.

Choose to live, whatever your circumstances, and start living to trust the Universe.

Or whatever you can trust.

Live the life you were meant to live.

You already know what it is.

Go for it.

And never look back.

Love and Peace.

I Think Dr Desailly Knew Too Much About The Royals

Did Dr Desailly know too much about the Royals back in Regency times.

Was this why he and his wife were banished to the colonies never to return to England?

I’ve learned his secret and I’ve disclosed all in my new paperback book.

What were Dr Desailly and his wife doing in this antipodean outpost of Van Diemen’s Land (Tasmania)?

“They held no official position, nor were they of the free settlers who were beginning to trickle into the colony,” wrote Mabel Hookey in a rare, limited-edition book published over 50 years ago. “They did not swell the ranks of those unfortunates [convicts] who had left their country for their country’s good, nor were they political exiles.

How to Change the World Without Lifting a Finger

I’ve found the secret.

In a few words.

To change the world for the better.

Ethically.

Peacefully.

It’s what we can all do.

Without even lifting a finger.

Maybe an eyebrow, yes.

Not a finger.

I’ve searched for it.

Now I’ve found it.

What can I do?

I’m just one person.

I’m nobody.

What can I do?

What can you do?

Well, I’ve thought that too.

Until I wrote this small book

The secret is on the first page.

. It’s about what I can do.

Which is nothing.

Nothing compared to people who are famous, are influencers, are in a position to make a difference.

But then, I’ve written a book.

It’s all I can do.

But here’s the thing.

I know what we can do, as individuals, as ordinary people, without a voice.

Except our own.

So I want to invite you to read the book.

I have found the way that ordinary, everyday people like you and me can do something.

You can without making a fuss.

Unseen.

Alone.

Quietly.

Ethically.

Peacefully.

Without going anywhere.

Just where you are.

Here’s the link to my book ‘Romancing Your Life. Changing The World’.

Doesn’t cost much.

Won’t bore you.

Easy to read.

Get it and together we can change the world.

Let’s give it a shot.

It may be now or never.

Love and peace.

Namaste.

Your Mind Knows Who You Are

Have you ever asked your mind who you are?

Do you ever ask it for advice?

A winner of a creative business award was asked what was her secret of success.

“I just trust my beeps,” she said.

Trust her beeps.

Why don’t you try trusting your beeps.

They’re the code to get you out of a rut..

The vibes.

The intuition.

Your mind is energy.

You can tap into that energy, the waves, the vibrations, that you are searching for outside yourself,

Your mind has your interests at heart.

Maybe your mind holds the clues to your Destiny.

Ask it who you are.

With thought.

Because your mind, your Destiny, knows who you were meant to be.

You chose it.

Love and peace.

Namaste.

How Paranormal Clues Uncovered a Royal Cover-Up.

Vital papers had been burned.

Identities were anonymous.

The truth had not been told.

As if they were nobody.

I knew they were Royalty.

Sure, that was 250 years ago.

In Regency times.

In England.

Involving the very early days of British settlement in New South Wales (Australia) and New Zealand).

Who would know?

Certainly not the official line.

Not recorded history.

But I had the paranormal clues.

And they gave me enough, like the smoke, that is evidence of there being a fire.

In the end, after considerable research, I found enough smoke to show there must have been a fire.

The Prince of Wales had his position – and his head – on the line,

All good reason for the cover-up.

I understand.

Now, 25 years later, someone wants the truth to out.

Which is where my story becomes truly paranormal.

I can’t claim proof.

That’s been cleverly destroyed.

I can claim evidence like the smoke that gives away a fire.

There’s Been a Cover-Up. A Royal Cover-Up.

There were clues.

Evidence of a cover-up.

Involving the Prince of Wales.

And a Roman Catholic widow.

They were secretly married.

Was it legal?

Were there children?

Legitimate children.

Then where were they?

I think I know.

It’s not where you think.

The Pope said, yes.

The British Parliament said, no.

Who was right?

Everywhere I looked the real evidence was not there.

Vital papers had been burned.

Identities were removed.

The true history had not been told.

I knew they were Royalty.

Yes, that was 250 years ago.

In England.
