Make your own bottled water – get a filter and save the planet from the invasion of the plastics!

We have been following this trend – read make your own bottled water and save the planet  and bottled vs tap water

Why are people continuing to spend billions of dollars on bottled water? Why are people mindlessly engaging in pollution of the planet, billions of plastic bottles each year?

Again the headlines scream –

Bottled water: A river of money

Clean water comes out of the tap for next to nothing, yet Americans spend more on bottled water than on movie tickets or iPods — a stunning $15 billion last year. Here’s a look at a booming industry’s economics and psychology.

We Americans pitch 38 billion water bottles a year into landfills — in excess of $1 billion worth of plastic. And 24% of the bottled water we buy is tap water repackaged by Coca-Cola and PepsiCo.

Tibetan Monks know the Secret

The Secret to Aging Well – The Five Tibetan Exercise Rites 

Tibet and the Tibetans enjoy a long history and culture. However, according to the Dalai Lama, this unique cultural expression and heritage which includes Buddhist spirituality is facing the threat of extinction.

One way of preserving Tibet’s culture is through education and the spread of cultural expression,  as, for example,  the rapid spread of Tibetan Buddhism and the Way of Shambhala into Western countries, fueled by the avid interest of Western students hungry for genuine spiritual insight.

Random House has just shone the author’s spotlight on Carolinda Witt  and is promoting her new book and DVD entitled The 10-Minute Rejuvenation Plan T5T: The Revolutionary Exercise Program That Restores Your Body and Mind.

Carolinda Witt – The 10-Minute Rejuvenation Plan

Carolinda Witt simplifies these ancient rites and combines them with breathing, yoga, and exercise philosophies to create T5T.

 Tibetan monks  practised the postures which  a retired British Army Colonel reported on during the 1930s, observing that even thought the monks were old, they appeared healthy and ageless.  He studied the 5 yoga postures and brought them back to the West – these became the Five Tibetan Rites of Rejuvenation, still being practised today.

We can help in the preservation of Tibetan culture by doing the exercises and sharing with our circles the benefits of the exercise.  In this way, a “groundswell” of support will be  one of the more powerful ways to embrace and sustain a cause.

The Secret to the Game of Life

The Secret to the Game of Life  – Play it

Ask anyone about life and you would be told – Life is…..(a bag of cherries, difficult, what you make it, the pits…) and on, and on.

The adjectives used to describe life change according to the speaker. For those who “Think Positively”, life would be positive things to them. For those who “Think Negatively”, life would be problems to them. For those who “do not stop to think, or do not think at all”, life is “whatever”!

However, we can fit into any of the above categories at any time and not even recognize it. At one moment we think positively, especially when we are reminded that we should; but a second later we could see clearly why things cannot and will not work, why nothing is possible…

By now, however, unless we are living under a rock, we know that Life IS – that Life is really a Game and the best player wins.  Winning could be both positive and negative – but who are we to judge.  For most of us, life is – whatever. Many speak of positive and negative people as though they are outside of us, but look in the mirror and see Ms Positive or Mr Negative – visible after blinks.

I would like to share with you a book that I have had since 1980 called “Your Word is Your Wand”, by Florence Scovel Shinn. I then progressed to the “Wisdom of Florence Scovel Shinn”, which contains 4 of her complete books, including the Game of Life.

Florence Scovel Shinn was widely known for many years as an artist and illustrator, metaphysician and lecturer, and as having helped thousands of people through her great work of healing and assisting in solving their problems.

I followed her teachings (usually in the natural, as at that time I did not develop my spiritual muscles at all). I would mouth the Affirmations, but not really connect them with spirit. Seeking spirituality has really benefited my image (positive/negative) a great deal and has also led me to many other masters and orientations.

Not until a dramatic event enveloped me in 2000, did those teachings begin to kick in. I became painfully aware of the importance of the metaphysical in our daily lives. According to the metaphysicians, there are three departments of the mind (p4, Wisdom):

  • the subconscious – whatever we feel deeply or image clearly (visualize), is impressed upon the subconscious mind, and carried out in minutest detail;
  • the conscious mind – the carnal or mortal mind is the human mind that sees life as it appears to be. It sees death, disaster, sickness, poverty and limitation of every kind, and it impresses the subconscious;
  • the superconscious mind – the God mind, within each man and is the realm of perfect ideas – the perfect pattern, the Divine Design, for there is a Divine Design for each person. Sometimes we get flashes which seem as unattainable, too good to be true. This is where true destiny resides, and each of us has our own true destiny.

I was operating (and still do from time to time) at the first two levels – deeply feeling, visualizing, being overwhelmed by what is going on around me and in the world, only seeing lack and limitation, etc. Any flash from the superconscious would be a temporary set of excited actions, and back again to conscious and subconscious mind sets.

We all know, as behavioural experts, that knowledge does not directly lead to action, unless one can move to superconsious at a rapid pace and allow life to manifest as it should with overwhelming love, abundance, peace, health, happiness…

The Game of Life is a game of work, a game where we have to be in an awake state and operate with all three engines firing.

Not all people to agree with the above, but unless there is a working alternative, feel free to blog in and blog on.

Why this information?

A discussion with a friend sometime ago revealed that she was very concerned with the state of non-health as she saw it of one of her very good friends; it centered around not being able to let go. I shared that at times, not letting go could also show up in our lives as disease. A passage (p65 Wisdom) clarifies that a health issue, a dis-ease, is believed to  be caused by congesting, storing away too many things; congestion of things causes congestion in the body. When the law of use is violated, the body pays the penalty.

We should consider no longer being on automatic as we proceed in life, but by being conscious of every thought, word, action  – being in the moment, being conscious, helps us to appreciate now…as we operate fully being present to why we are thinking what we are thinking, why we are saying what we are saying, why we are doing what we are doing…
