Teachings

There are innumerable applications of this one principle in your life: relationships, finances, career, business building, study habits etc. It is indeed a core Truth and the more skilled you become in applying it, the sooner you will find yourself getting unstuck and creating the life you want. We’ve all experienced it. You’re trying to think of a word, it’s on the tip of your tongue, the more you try, the harder it is to remember. Out of frustration you let go of that thought and think/talk about something else. Or perhaps you go and do something that requires you to focus on another thought pattern, and then *bam*, out of the blue, there’s the word you were trying to remember! You...

Awareness is 80% of the Journey so understanding this one point about Attachment will go a long way in helping you solve the riddle as to why unwanted themes are repeating themselves in your life. There’s a beautiful vine growing over the pergola in my backyard. During the Spring it sends out young tendrils that have a sticky, tacky nature to them. In their early stages of growth, these young shoots often point straight out into open air, not fastened to anything and as a result, are very vulnerable. When the wind blows, these un-tethered tendrils sway back and forth, inevitably bumping into other vines or the wooden posts of the pergola and due to their stickiness, they are able to take...

This is a massively important Life's lesson about the nature of Intention, is one I learned while horseback riding……. and I’ve used it every day since! Years ago I took up horseback riding. I was very much of a novice rider and on this particular day I was taking jumping lessons. My instructor drew a line in the sand some distance in front of the first jump and said: “Make sure the horse’s front hooves touch this line! Don’t be any closer to the jump or your horse won’t have enough room to clear it and you will gravely injure your horse!!” You can’t image the fear and panic that rose in me at the thought that I might injure my horse! So,...

It’s a horrible feeling to know that you have caused another person pain, disappointed them and lost their trust. Even though you may be filled with genuine remorse and want to apologize, you need to know that simply saying ‘Sorry’ might not be enough. In fact, in certain situations this one-worded apology can actually increase the amount of hurt and resentment. And that’s the last thing you want to do! If your intent is sincere, it's best yo learn how to deliver an effective apology.   The Anatomy of a Sincere and Effective Apology Acknowledge / describe what you did and take full responsibility. Note: This is not the time for justifying your behaviour. Leave that for when the other person is...

This one step can change your life in ways that are currently impossible to imagine. I don’t say this to be sensationalistic. I’ve seen miracles take place in the lives of hundreds of people, when they do Conscious Breathing on a regular basis. You are wired to survive. You have a nervous system and instincts that have been designed to make sure you survive threats to your well-being.   Two Key Systems Under stress, your Sympathetic Nervous System is engaged. This is when blood pressure rises, there is an increase in heart rate, rushes of adrenaline, breathing quickens, the large muscle groups contract, the micro muscles (eg.digestive track) contract and your thinking gets very narrow and focused. In a peaceful state of Balance, you are...

Have you ever noticed that Truth is simple? It doesn’t take up a lot of room and really doesn’t require a lot of words. When I hear something that speaks to the Truth I walk with, I get a feeling in my stomach that says 'Yes, that's it'. Pure and simple. And so it is with this beautiful, simple story of two wolves. It clearly illustrates the power we have to make this moment, and more so this Life, whatever we want it to be. All we have to do is choose!    Two Wolves A young Cherokee boy saw his grandfather seated by himself. He walked up to him and said, “Grandfather what are you doing?” The grandfather said, “I am thinking...
