Sweden - Lagom

What is Lagom from Sweden? The Swedish have a concept which involves 'just the right amount' neither too little or too much, too light or too heavy, too soft or too hard, too high or two low! It means 'enough, sufficient, in moderation' and it involves simplicity and suitability. It is the Swedish art of living a balanced and healthy life.

Eco-Tourism! The Holidays of the Future

When you are taking a holiday, remember the huge resources this costs the world, especially in air flight, water provision and non local produce. When you take a trip abroad, consider visiting a national park or wildlife reserve where funds are ploughed back into nature conservation. Remember that bush meat, land use change causing a loss of species territory, pollution, climate change, all affect widlife which conflict with humans are human population grows exponentially.Many local people are involved with eco-tourism, protecting their animal species and providing handcrafts and other services to visitors, lifting them out of poverty and dependence on the sale of dead animal parts. This type of holiday is becoming highly fashionable as many intellectuals wish to save what they can of our planetary future. By visiting areas to protect turtles, giraffe, big cats, elephant and rhino and many beautiful birds, you hear and see these amazing life forms that have developed alongside human beings. Visit:

Join the Wildlife Campaign

You can get involved with saving the wonderful species that have graced our planet for millennia. Many species have inspired humans in inventions.  The two major threats are loss of territory and slaughtering for body parts. We must challenge the fashion industry, the lies presented as traditional medicine, decorative uses, and taking from the wild to keep as pets in extremely poor and unhealthy conditions. 60% of mammals, birds, reptiles and fish are already extinct. Goodwill Ambassadors are coming forward, such as Aiden Gallagher, Nadya Hutagalung, Wang Junkai and Dia Mirza.

We read of symptoms, tests, scans, diagnoses, flare-ups, procedures, medications, treatments, X-rays, biopsies, disabilities, complications, drug conflicts, and the advice of numerous doctors and health care workers. There are confusions, speculations and assumptions and doctors who argue with each other about who has most wisdom in treating this extraordinary illness which requires an individualised care plan.

The Lakota Way of Life by Kirby Sattler

    Praise, flattery, exaggerated manners and fine, high-sounding words were no part of Lakota politeness. Excessive manners were put down as insincere, and the constant talker was considered rude and thoughtless. Conversation was never begun at once, or in a hurried manner.

Loneliness: Ben Lazare Mijuskovic

Loneliness: In Harm’s Way*  From symposium talk at Brunel University, London on 30th October 2015:  In what follows, I wish to show four things: (a) that all human beings are innately, i.e. universally, necessarily, a priori lonely; (b) why this is so; (c) the consequences of loneliness; and (d) what can be done about it, its remedies.
         The twin principles I propose to defend are that all we feel, think, say, and do occurs between two emotional and cognitive poles in human consciousness, between the solipsistic insularity of loneliness and the intentional desire to transcend it by attaining intimate attachments. The two terminals of consciousness constitute the dynamics of repulsion and attraction, which continually guide us through our passions, thoughts, and actions. After the biological drives for air, water, nourishment, sleep—and before sex---are met, the most insistent psychological need and motivational drive in human beings is to secure an intimate relation to other self-conscious creatures, whether animal, human, or divine. In effect, I wish to replace Freud’s principle of libidinal energy with the anxiety of isolation.

Mexican Birds

It's easy to separate animals from their natural habitats when you've only seen them in zoos. Not to say that you should go seek dangerous animals in the wild, of course, but it can be a thrill to see even the smallest and tamest exotic animals in their native homes. If you're on vacation in Mexico, keep an eye out for these birds.

Joy, Peace and Happiness - 10 simple steps!

Your Simple Path to find Joy, Peace and Happiness!
We live in a mad, crazy world, and it is easy to become overwhelmed with the pace of life and expectations placed upon us by others! Bestselling English author Ian Tucker takes a look at how we can slow down and begin to take care of ourselves. He offers ten simple steps towards a happier and more peaceful life:
1.  “Live just for today.”
Your past is now your story, nothing more, it has gone forever -  regret is a total waste of your time, see that what came to test you is an opportunity to grow, be kind to yourself and focus on cherished memories.
What of the future and it’s total uncertainty? Well, 99.9% of anything that you and I have ever worried about has never happened, think about that for a moment, all that worry sometimes to the point of illness and for nothing, worrying is like praying for things you don’t want.
Once you realise that the current moment is all that you can be certain of you will unlock the shackles that keep you tied to the past or worried about the future and liberate you to live each day.

Letter from Caroline Myss - a 'must read'

Hi Everyone,  

Well, I appreciate your feedback on my post yesterday. And now I will offer some feedback, if that’s okay by you, as they say. First, there is something to be said for matters of spiritual conscience – not consciousness – but conscience. That is, there comes a time when good people need to speak up when confronted with the face of evil. If not you, then who? Speaking up is not being “political”; it is an act of conscience. I am not promoting anything political. I am pointing a finger at the decline of the quality of life in our nation, in our leaders, in our society-at-large. If we do not speak up, we will ultimately forfeit the right to speak up at all. If you call the right to speak up political, it is you who are mistaken. And I would ask you, “Why are you not screaming from the rooftop?”
