What Happens When You Die?

A long time ago, far far away, I had a chance meeting with a Wise Woman.

She became a good friend.

Until she died of cancer a few years later.

She was the Librarian at the Melbourne Theosophical Society.

Their Headquarters is in Adyar, India.

With a motto of ‘There is no religion higher than truth’ they encourage the study of all religions.

I was in.

I threw myself into my own study of all spiritual philosophies.

Including what happens when we die.

Today I feel that our soul survives this lifetime.

And is reborn.

Lately I’ve been thinking:

Do I really want to leave this beautiful world?

With all its problems?

What if my next life is on an alien planet with no trees or birds or the smell of cut grass?

What if it’s all black-and-white without colour?

Or what if it’s a world of thought without physical form?

This is not such a bad place to live if only we could clean up the mess.

The poverty.

The destruction.

So let’s do it.

All of us who care.

You and me.

We already live in a world of thought.

Our thoughts need physical bodies to work though.

How can we clean up our beautiful planet alone?

Others are trying.

But how can we do it alone.

I know the answer:

With our thoughts.

Trouble is, isn’t it our thoughts that have created and maintained today’s messed up world.

From the pollution to the violence.

Physically others are doing all they can.

Then there’s our thoughts.

It’s your thoughts, together with mine and others, that could do the trick.

With our thought we can be there, everywhere, in a thought.

We can avoid the cruel television dramas.

The violent movies.

The computer war games.

The selective brain washing evening news.

We can replace that with our thoughts of the world we want, not the world that amuses us.

“With our thoughts we make the world,” the Buddha said.

Is it our only hope to create the world we want.

Think big but let’s think change.

Think about it.

Love and peace.

Change Your Thoughts, Change The World.

The world we have created is a product of our thinking; it can’t be changed without changing our thinking.  — Albert Einstein 

The world is created by our thoughts.

So your brain waves are creating the world we’ve got.

“We but mirror the world,” said Mahatma Gandhi.

Your brain waves can be changed.

You can change any situation by your response to it.

In a stressful situation, for example, your response can determine its outcome.

Every action is preceded by a thought and an emotion.

Start with your perception if you plan to rewire it.

So what are you thinking?

Because that’s where we can change the world.

As a force for good.

Consciously.

Let’s consider how this works in the real world.

In your world.

What are you thinking about while watching television?

Playing video games?

Watching the news?

Listening to the radio?

Responding to social media?

Chatting?

Do you know what you’re thinking?

Are you aware of your responses, your emotions, your feelings?

Do you become emotionally involved?

Could your responses be creating the world you don’t want?

“Every thought and emotion has its own vibrational frequency or wave frequency. Quantum mechanics has demonstrated how a wave frequency can be altered. The shape of a wave has peaks and valleys. Energy waves are encoders and carriers of information with an infinite capacity for storage. When you overlay an opposite shaped wave on to an original wave, the original wave is straightened. Essentially you cancel out the characteristics of the original wave by overlaying a new exact opposite set of peaks and valleys on top of it. You change the vibrational frequency.” The Quantum Mechanics Of Changing Thoughts.

When you change your response, you change your experience of the situation.

This single factor has the potential to dramatically alter the course of your life journey. 

As a thought form with other like minds, we could rewire the world.

As a force for good.

Think about it.

Love and Peace.

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.

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
