The Important Things in Life – Something to ponder…….

A philosophy professor stood before his class with
items on the table before him. Wordlessly he picked up a large
jar and proceeded to fill it.

A philosophy professor stood before his class with
some items on the table in front of him. When the
class began, wordlessly he picked up a very large
and empty mayonnaise jar and proceeded to fill it
with rocks, about 2 inches in diameter.

He then asked the students if the jar was full.
They agreed that it was.

So the professor then picked up a box of pebbles
and poured them into the jar. He shook the jar lightly.
The pebbles, of course, rolled into the open areas
between the rocks. Continue reading “The Important Things in Life – Something to ponder…….”

Change or Die

Most people are very reluctant to change even though they know they should. If you think severe heart disease is a critical enough trigger to make people change, it rarely is

If you were given the choice “change your behaviour or die”, would you change?

 

Naturally the majority of people would say “yes”, but would you? Of the people that have serious heart bypass surgery every year, in around half of cases the bypass grafts have clogged up again within 5 years. Many of these people could have avoided a return of their heart problems and further surgery by switching to a healthier lifestyle. Even after this massively invasive and expensive surgery, 90% of people do not change their lifestyle.

 

Most people are very reluctant to change even though they know they should.  You would think severe heart disease would be a critical enough trigger to make people change, but in fact, this rarely lasts longer than a few weeks. Even when people are given factual reasons why they should change, it is not enough. Continue reading “Change or Die”

What motivates us

Have you ever thought about the question “What motivates us”. 

Most people would automatically say money but, in fact, once peoples basic needs are met money is not the most motivating factor to creating success.

Here is a short video titled “What motivates us”. This video gives an interesting view on what really motivates people and it isn’t money (once basic needs are met). Continue reading “What motivates us”

Silent Change

We all see things about ourselves, our relationships, and our world that we want to change. Often, this desire leads us to take action toward inner work that we need to do or toward some external goal.

Letting Nature Work

Change can enter our lives silently and this change can be just as important as change we have worked hard for.

We all see things about ourselves, our relationships, and our world that we want to change. Often, this desire leads us to take action toward inner work that we need to do or toward some external goal. Sometimes, without any big announcement or momentous shift, we wake up to find that change has happened, seemingly without us. This can feel like a miracle as we suddenly see that our self-esteem really does seem to be intact, or our partner actually is helping out around the house more. We may even wonder whether all of our hard work had anything to do with it, or if it just happened by way of grace. Continue reading “Silent Change”

Cashflow is Critical

It isn’t really how much money people have that causes them problems or what assets or lack of assets they own. In nearly all cases the reason people have financial problems is due to a lack of cashflow.

We have had our online interactive wheel of life working for some time and now have a fair bit of data that tells us what people consider being their biggest problems when balancing their lives. The biggest perceived problem by far is Wealth and Finances followed by Health (often caused by the stress of financial issues).

It isn’t really how much money people have that causes them problems or what assets or lack of assets they own. In nearly all cases the reason people have financial problems is due to a lack of càshflow. For most people, unless they have a conscious understanding of their finances and where their money goes they will use everything that comes in.  This happens whether people earn $30,000 a year or $300,000 a year.

Join the dots on 350 day 2012 with the Climate Impacts Rally

Extreme weather events are happening with increasing regularity, around the world, however, people often don’t see this connection. On 350 day 2012, May 5, people all over the world will join together and Connect the Dots. Join DRREA in Belgrave for our Climate Impacts Rally.

All  across the world there are more and more extreme weather events happening with increasing regularity, however, as the world is so big, it’s hard for most people to see that all these events are connected. In an effort to highlight this connection this year 350 day 2012 on May 5, people all over the world will join together and Connect the Dots.

In places from drought-stricken Mongolia to flood-stricken Thailand, from fire-ravaged Australia to Himalayan communities threatened by glacial melt, people will hold rallies reminding everyone what has happened in their own neighborhoods.

At each of those rallies, from Kenya to Canada, from Vietnam to Vermont, someone will be holding a…dot. A huge black dot on a white banner, a “dot” of people holding hands, encircling a field where crops have dried up, a dot made of fabric and the picture taken from above — you get the idea. We’ll share those images the world around, to put a human face on climate change–we’ll hold up a mirror to the planet and force people to come face to face with the ravages of climate change.

 

 

As part of this day DRREA – Dandenong Ranges Renewable Energy Association will be holding a

‘Climate Impacts rally’

at Belgrave 10-11 am.

Meet outside Ranges Community Health Centre (next to Cameo Theatre).

The focus of rally will be highlighting the link between climate change and  the predicted increase in extreme fire weather days.

Our blunt message will be that climate change equals more Black Saturdays. The incidence of extreme and catastrophic fire weather days is predicted by the IPCC to increase as a result of climate change. We could be next! Increased public awareness of this and other climate impacts is critical to decisive action on climate change. Help bring this message to other hills residents.

BYO climate change=bushfires placards and wear fiery colours (red/orange) Be seen and be heard

Thrive the movie

THRIVE is an unconventional documentary that lifts the veil on what’s REALLY going on in our world by following the money upstream — uncovering the global consolidation of power in nearly every aspect of our lives.

If you haven’t seen the Thrive the Movie, you are in for a treat, it is revealing and inspiring. Based on research, inventions, interviews and independent scientists and thinkers, of what it takes to thrive, now, on our planet. It is now available to watch for free, just click on the link below.

This is a thought-provoking movie that shares ideas that the main-stream media is not telling you about the inter-relatedness of the current financial situations, the environment and our ongoing health. Although many of us suspect that the “Occupy Wall Street” movement wass onto something with their claims of the inequality of the money flow, this movie explains the money flow of the world in a straight forward down to earth fashion.

Living Green in Emerald with Sustainable Housing

One of the important features mentioned in the article is the importance of good insulation in maintaining a stable household temperature all year round. In fact the temperature inside the house has never been outside the range of 11 – 28 degrees, irregardless of the temperature outside.

Recently we were interviewed by Brett Munckton, the Environment Officer from Cardinia Council and have now been included in a feature article in this month’s Connect magazine put out by Cardinia Council.  This article features sustainability and is designed to help educate people about the benefits of sustainable living.

One of the important features mentioned in the article is the importance of good insulation in maintaining a stable household temperature all year round. In fact the temperature inside the house has never been outside the range of 11 – 28 degrees, irregardless of the temperature outside.

One of the other keys to achieving this stable ambient living temperature is the north facing  placement of the house on the block, with all living areas being on the northern sideof the house. Continue reading “Living Green in Emerald with Sustainable Housing”
