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.

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.

PS. Over a thousand years ago, in medieval Britain, the Smiths were the craftsman, the metal smiths, the blacksmiths, who created the basis of society. Today I’m the creator Smith who, as a wordsmith, creates the society (again). With words, not the sword (read my small book here)..

Urban Nomad. Who is the Smith?

I am the Smith.

I am the author.

Why ‘the Smith’?

The smiths were the crafters, the metal smiths, the blacksmiths, the makers of Medieval Britain a thousand years ago.

I am the wordsmith.

I’ve written and self-published 8 autobiographical books.

Click or tap the image above to see.

This smith has lived everywhere.

Over 50 dwellings have been my home.

An ancient aboriginal corroboree ground in a wilderness area known as Fairy Hills where the creek met the river was my first memory of life.

And only a few kilometres from the Melbourne CBD.

I’ve just learned they’ve been digging up ancient aboriginal artifacts that suggest this.

I’ve lived with psychics and healers.

And sat with mediums or channels.

I’ve lived with a Reiki Master in New York.

With a Roman Catholic nurse in the north of Italy.

With a Buddhist in the UK.

My lawyer was an Atheist.

I didn’t live with him.

I ran my own freelance copywriting business. in the ’70s

In 1972 I won an award for the best television campaign of the year for a brand of meat pies and donuts.

I was a New Age hippie.

We knew about climate change 50 years ago.

A group of us started a commune on 40 acres north of Melbourne to become self-sufficient and live off the grid.

A year later we’d failed.

I helped launch Animal Liberation here.

Our patron was Peter Singer, who was then Professor of Bioethics at Harvard., and wrote the book ‘Animal Liberation’.

45 years later it’s still active today.

I was the first member of the Permaculture Association.

Which, started by two Tasmanian academics in the late ’70s, today is changing the world

Now there are over one million people certified in Permaculture in over 140 countries with more than 4,000 projects on the ground.

I went bankrupt.

An article I researched and wrote 35 years ago – about the Swiss and Italian gold miners who came to Australia in the 1850s – triggered the launch of a Swiss-Italian Festa which is still running every year today in a local spa resort town.

Their story is in my book here.

I ran a social group called ‘The Springs Whole Health Group’.

We never ran out of guest speakers on healing topics, from ley lines to chemical sensitivity, who I’d enjoy interviewing every month before our next meeting.

Then I would write an article for the local paper which they always published on page 3 or 5.

This while living frugally in an old caravan parked at the end of a street in the spa resort town.

Over 5 years I became known as the man in the van.

I studied many spiritual philosophies.

I studied Religious Experience as an off campus mature age student at Uni –

The Christian Mystics

The Hindu Bhagavad-Gita.

Australian Aboriginal Dreaning.

I practiced Yoga for 50 years from wherever I called home.

Briefly I joined the Theosophical Society in Melbourne, with headquarters in Adyar, India, with the motto ‘There is no religion higher than Truth’.

I met and befriended the Librarian of the Melbourne branch, a Wise Woman, who taught me how and where and why to search for Truth.

What is Truth?

For a time I was married and today have the pleasure of a beautiful family of 2 lovely daughters, 3 adorable granddaughters and 2 mischievous great grandsons.

I’m truly blessed

My Story Of How Just Thinking Can Change Your Life.

It figures.

We’re thinking in every waking hour.

And we’re reacting to our thoughts during most waking hours.

But do we ever think that we’re constantly connecting the two?

We think hungry so we go to get something to eat.

We need something and we act to satisfy that need.

We feel a desire for something, or someone, and we take steps to satisfy our need.

Don’t our thoughts always precede an action?

The act always follows a thought.

Our thought always stimulates a physical response.

Think about it.

Doesn’t it follow, then, that we can have a deliberate thought of action that will result in a physical response?

Cause and effect.

The thought is the cause and the action is the effect.

What if we also apply the idea to karma.

As you sow so shall you reap.

So what if your thoughts create your life?

Then if your reality is thought then what if your karma is also based on your thoughts rather than your actions.

What if your karma isn’t about your actions, good or bad, within a certain society’s morals, but one’s thoughts within a much broader view.

Is it rather the thought, the intent, that draws the karma?

Think about it.

What if we get what we think.

And what if all the thoughts we have during a single day are creating our reality?

What if?

A scary thought.

But what if it’s true.

What do we think about?

Do we ever think about that?

What if the stories we get in the movies, the computer games, the television dramas and the TV news, are all creating our reality?

Are the standout thoughts and beliefs we’re left with from the media throughout the day actually creating our world?

The Buddha said, “We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts, we make the world..”

Is that what he meant?

So on that basis, are our thoughts and our beliefs really creating our life, our world, our destiny?

What if?

Where Is Your Soul Mate?

What if you were a Romeo waiting for your Juliet, a Guinevere waiting for your Lancelot, to show up in this life?

What if a past life ended tragically, in a death perhaps, untimely separation or unfortunate distance, leaving emotions and experiences unfinished or unexpressed.

How tragic.

What if we’ve returned to complete what was started last time with an unhappy parting?

What if, what if?

Are we going to blow it by settling for someone we’ve asked to be our partner too soon?

What if?

How do we know?

We don’t, except that we can go with the flow, by trusting that our interests are being taken care of.

Not so if we’re trying to force things.

What if there is a priority of the thoughts and influences in our lives depending the intensity and the degree to which each is important.

I’ve always thought that the recent talk of the Law of Attraction is only relevant as far as other influences which are in our mental make-up at the time are more important.

For example, are there aspects of our Destiny or our Karma that might override any forcing we set up as our expectation of the Law of Attraction.

And choices.

We’re free to make choices all the time.

That’s free will.

But how do we know whether our choices are, in the long run, in our best interests?

How do we know without a crystal ball?

Seeing into the future.

Are our chances of winning the lottery diminished by aspects to the contrary in our Karma or our Destiny or simply in our need to win the lottery over other considerations.

Are we always simply in the queue?

It’s a mix, like a cake.

Priorities are surely determined more by their importance on a spiritual level than our own sense of importance.

Much of which we may not understand.

It’s not either/or.

Trust.

In the Tao it’s known as “wu wei”, not forcing things.

For the past 30 years I’ve lived by not forcing things.

I had no choice.

Read about it in my book ‘Man Steps Off Planet’ HERE.

Take care.

Why Not Forcing Things Works.

How this paper boat behaves is a good example of the principle of ‘not forcing things’ in our everyday lives.

If we know the direction of the current then we can have a pretty good idea where the paper boat will end up.

Without any force.

Could it be why some people are successful in life?

The Universe shows us all the time.

Going with the flow, rolling with the punches, cutting with the grain, swimming with the tide, sailing with the wind.

The Japanese marshal arts of Judo and Aikido are based on this principle.

It’s demonstrated in the action of water which does not force things but finds its way through and around every obstacle.

Same with life and we often miss it.

It’s a Taoist idea expressed in the term ‘wu wei’ meaning ‘not forcing things’.

Our society tends to take an opposite view, to force things to go our way.

And we can always be encouraged in our world to use money to get what we want.

That’s okay if its not forcing things.

I’m suggesting that it’s in our own interests to go with the flow, not to force things.

What if we have other choices.

What if we’re trying to control to our benefit something that is not in the end in our best interests.

That’s where ‘not forcing things’ can better work in our favour.

Because often we simply don’t really know what is in our best interests.

Often it’s best to leave it to our Destiny, our Karma, the Universe.

Life itself can be full of examples if only we’d give it a chance.

Sometimes we can be too busy trying to control our lives when we shouldn’t be trying to force things.

Better, maybe, to go with the flow.

For the past 30 years I’ve lived by not forcing things.

I had no choice.

I was bankrupt.

I chose to go with the flow to survive.

I was not prepared to be a victim.

And it worked.

Right now I’m writing my seventh book based on how I view my experiences.

Read more in my book ‘Man Steps Off Planet’.

It’s about how not forcing things led to incredible adventures and a life far beyond one of loss and poverty.

That would be missing the point.

We might call it serendipity.

Maybe it will change your life like it changed mine.

I was once an advertising copywriter and my book was a product of survival after losing everything.

Buy the book and improve your life like I did.

Best wishes.

Stop Forcing Things

Who was it that said, “Show me someone who has made mistakes and I’ll show you a person who’s lived.”

Something like that.

And that’s me.

And that’s what I want to talk about.

Living and learning.

This is not only a school, it’s a life.

Once it’s gone then it’s too late.

So please, live and learn before it’s too late.

Stop forcing things.

People say, what about “squeaking hinges”?

What about making noise to get heard?

Forcing things.

And I reply, “choose without forcing it”.

Could that be why the long-held spiritual notion of a rejection of wealth, something I lost when I went bankrupt, bobs up in religious ideas over history.

Because with money we force things.

Without it we can’t.

And therein lies a great spiritual Truth.

Without the benefit of wealth we are unable to force life to go the way we would like.

Then we’re open to our Destiny to take us where we might want to go.

Going with the flow rather than with our will.

Maybe we need to save the use of our will for other purposes.

Like healing of ourselves, and others.

You might be asking, but what about this, what about that, for example, what about the Law of Attraction?

There are many influences contributing to our choices, our actions, our lives.

There might be our Destiny, our Karma, the Law of Attraction, the intensity of our thoughts, past life memory, the influence of the issues in our lives, our habits, even our television watching habits and the emotional involvement in what we watch.

What if we were a Romeo waiting for our Juliet, a Guinevere waiting for our Lancelot, to turn up in this life?

Are we going to blow it by settling for someone we’ve forced to be our partner too soon?

What if?

There is surely a priority of the thoughts and influences in our lives depending the intensity and the degree to which each is important.

I’ve always thought that the recent talk of the Law of Attraction is only relevant so far as other influences which are in our mental make-up at the time are more important.

Are We All Trapped In Our Own Group Soul?

Watch a flock of birds as they all change direction at precisely the same time.

Why?

Because every bird in the flock is trapped in their group soul.

As are we?

Is this why we have become social animals through the urge to gravitate to our own group soul and why we can feel miserable when we’re rejected by our group of friends?

Chances are we’ll seek to join another group soul or social group.

Is it because loners, or introverts, tend to be regarded as unfriendly or anti-social because they choose not to belong to a group soul?

And are we all on a path to individuate?

To become whole, complete within ourselves?

Could this be the soul destiny of the human race?

In other words, have the extraverts taken over not realising that they are living out the phenomenon of belonging to their group soul?

Is socialising another word for maintaining the group soul?

And a resistance to individuating?

When I was studying philosophy at university the question was: “Is football a religion?”

At the time my answer was probably yes, but today I would more likely reply that it’s the wrong question.

The real question, for me now, would be: “Do football and religion each have group souls?”

My answer now would be, that is the common denominator of the two.

Group souls can each have a different make-up.

A theme that will attract those seeking a common purpose or goal that they feel they can fit in with.

And, who knows, maybe we’re drawn to elements in our soul’s make-up from the time we are born.

Our workplace is a group soul.

Our social media are group souls.

Our friends are a group soul.

Moving out of one can be full of difficulty.

Moving into another, the same.

Moving from one to another, wow, that can mean trouble.

Is this a reason why 85% of us* are unhappy in our jobs, because we’re in the wrong group soul?

Surely, as we well know, moving into your own space, your own life, your own reality, well, that’s a courageous move.

Maybe that’s our soul’s destiny, an evolution that today is just beginning and which we find ourselves caught up in.

We need to decide whether to be carried along with the group, like the flock of birds flying within the same mentality, or are we to choose our own way, follow our own path, to individuate.

No matter what the rest of the flock says.

Could this be the answer to many of our life’s and social problems?

Best wishes

85% Of Us Hate Our Jobs. 2 In 3 Of Our Kids Are Bored At School. What’s Wrong With This Picture?

Why can’t we create the kind of world we all clearly want?

Like not hating our jobs.

Where our kids aren’t bored at school.

A big ask?

Yes. It’s a big problem.

I wonder if that’s not the elephant in the room of our world of increasing illness, mental issues, depression and suicide.

At present, it’s philosophical, speculation, I suggest, a spiritual answer to the question, what’s wrong with this picture?

At the same time aren’t those statistics a real problem?

Does anyone care?

There’s an interesting spiritual concept I want to play over to you.

What if, for example, we’re born with a Plan.

Let’s say, a decision is made for every one of us – we’re there at the meeting – as to the Plan for our life.

This Plan is based on who we are, our previous skills in past lives, where we’ve been, what we’d like to achieve this lifetime, how we aim to achieve all that.

Then we’re born, into a life and an environment best suited to begin our planned adventure.

Yes, adventure.

Let’s say, too, that in order to spare us the weight of having the details of our entire life’s Plan the moment we are born, that it is broken into 7 episodes.

And that those 7 episodes are spread through our life once every 7 years.

We can expect to live the first 7 years getting to know our new environment, to learn from those formative years and from the people in it everything we need to grow and survive before we are burdened with conditioning from outside.

Then, every 7 years another episode is released into our internal knowledge bank.

It’s how we grow and learn.

Until the age of 49.

So that is, 7×7=49.

The second episode of the Plan comes at puberty.

That’s age 14.

Next at 21 we ‘become of age’.

Then 28, 35, 42 and 49.

They’re all significant years.

By best age in life was 35, my one-man small business went bankrupt at 49.

Mid-life crisis comes at around 49, when the final update arrives.

What about you?

Why don’t we consider rearranging our lives – and our growth – around the 7×7 model.

Find Your Passion, Make It Happen

Why can’t our learning revolve around allowing our children to find and pursue their passions, doing what they enjoy, finding their innate skills.

This would be part of the Plan, their Destiny.

There are proven examples of this in Montessori Schools and Rudolph Steiner Schools.

Why can’t school programs tie in with the 7 year injections of the Plan for school kids.

Which would mean at age 7 and 14 internal changes could be recognised and planned for without teenagers having to struggle with not only hormonal changes but outdated parental conditioning and expectations.

It’s how we can create a more compassionate understanding of teenagers.

Same with us.

Your work, your job, your career, should be your passion, something you love doing every day.

If 85% of us go through life hating what we do, how is that in the interests of society?

Of our health and wellbeing?

And for productivity?

I’m asking whether we all need to live lives that follow the Plan I spoke about, a Destiny that was created before we are born, the perfect Plan that holds our best interests at heart.

Then would 85% of us hate what we do for a living?

Would 2 in 3 high school kids dislike school because of boredom?

And then would our world still be so overwhelmed by mental illness, depression and tragic suicides?

Is this the elephant in the room of society today?

What do you think.

I do understand because I’ve been there too.

If ever you’ve been disillusioned about life and how it’s treated you, when your back is to the wall, when all else has failed, here is your way to go.

Like when all your plans and dreams and goals have been taken from you.

It’s time for a new way forward that honors you and your uniqueness.

Why is nobody talking about this?

Why are so many people being left to struggle to survive?

Don’t you have a dream?

Haven’t you ever wondered what happened to your childhood passions?

Have you been waiting what seems to be forever for that windfall, that lottery win that would take you out of all this?

Well, I’ve done it, and I’ve written my amazing story, of living the Fairy Tale, the dream come true, found my sea change, with nothing.

There’s nothing to do except do things different, see things different.

And allow serendipity to emerge.

Simple as that.

And I’ve done it.

I’m a reclusive writer, an introvert, the anti-hero who’d prefer to live in peace out of the limelight.

From my rather unexpected and unplanned world adventure I’ve identified 9 secret hints, or clues, to show you the way.

You’ll find each of my 9 life changing hints or clues at the end of each of the first 9 chapters.

Read the book, test the hints, go for the dream.

Could This Be Your Way To The Fairy Tale?

Could this be your way to the Fairy Tale, the sea change, the dream of a life that’s always seemed beyond your reach.

I’ve done it.

Stop where you’re at right now.

If life is not working for you, if you’re not in control, if you’re not happy with your life, then consider a new way of life that works.

Without the money worries, where trust is the new currency.

Without the games where you’re not in control of your own life and your own destiny.

Your struggles have not been your fault.

But I do understand because I’ve been there too.

If ever you’ve been disillusioned about life and how it’s treated you, when your back is to the wall, when all else has failed, here is your way to go.

Haven’t you ever wondered what happened to your childhood passions?

Have you been waiting what seems to be forever for that windfall, that lottery win that would take you out of all this?

Here’s the shocking truth.

You know the windfall will probably never come, chances are your money worries will never go away, you’re unlikely ever to be free of the day-to-day boredom of your job.

Well, I’ve done it, and I’ve written my amazing story, of living the Fairy Tale, the dream come true, with nothing.
