Happiness and fulfilment have very little to do with your circumstance. The culture conditions you to 'think' otherwise; that you can only be happy when you change your circumstances, because culture needs you to be a good consumer. That’s the problem with thoughts, they’re like a shadow between yourself and... Continue reading

There's a saying, 'You Can't Teach Heart'... In this case 'Heart' being the ability to dig deep and find what's necessary to move beyond your current limitations. It's said with the implication that you can learn anything, but heart is something you either possess or you don't. It's highly probable... Continue reading

You know that metaphor about the oyster and a pearl? The pearl being created by sand irritating the oyster - a good thing resulting from a bad situation etc... I’m not sure the pearl is actually the end result of this process. Really the result is the feeling of ease.... Continue reading

In physics they call it Symmetry Breaking, a bifurcation. It's a small incident, seemingly arbitrary, but one which occurs at such a critical moment that it can determine the fate of a whole system. A fork in the road, a point at which to decide direction, from a present chaotic... Continue reading

Ever notice how there seems to be more money, more information, more technology... More ability to do, know and communicate. More of everything, including dissatisfaction. More is a pretty strong narrative. Society as we know it today has been built upon getting more. Unfortunately the story of needing to bring... Continue reading

Thanks. ... The Olympus camera is pretty darn good for point and click, and nature is a flattering subject to photograph. If the photo is too under or over exposed I play with the light settings. Other than that just show up and capture what the morning provides.

Ask people what they'd need in life to be happy and the general response is more money. Apparently being independently wealthy seems to be the path to happiness. But how long should we postpone happiness in the pursuit of gaining wealthiness? Wealth can be infinite, and it's relative. Happiness is... Continue reading

The ancient Egyptian view on life was deeply influenced by their detailed knowledge of ongoing cycles in the cosmos. They saw the disappearance and re-emergence of the stars and sun passing across the sky as a constant cycle of retreat and rebirth. Drawing parallels between their own earthly existence and...

I never understood why people still go to art galleries now that you can view the very same images on the internet. I mean, what's the point, it's not like you can touch the paintings... Another short fill-in blog this morning. Gorgeous morning and 22.2 degrees in the water. Unfortunately,... Continue reading

... If you were tasked with drinking the ocean dry, that's how you'd do it. If you tasked yourself with creating a safe, enjoyable BnB swim for the uncommon hour of 6:30am, you'd do what our mate Andrew Drinkwater does. Turn up every morning with a she'll-be-right-smile, gather your group... Continue reading

Carrying this blog camera seems like it really slows me down on the swim. Ok, the drag is minimal, but it’s noticeable. Maybe because less is more when you’re out here swimming. We over complicate life with things, with needs and hyper-rationalised concepts. All redundant layers of paraphernalia to keep... Continue reading
