Keeping Your Balance

Last night we were making some tight rope walking again out in the street, and many people again were curious, gathering around and were wanting to try, beautiful to see something so simple yet bought people together, in the end there were about fifty of us, man, woman, young, old all trying to balance!!! an interesting analogy to life, we are often walking everywhere all the time, but how often do we have true balance, when the path is narrow it is very difficult to balance, so maybe we should look at life as thought the path is very wide, that we have much room to balance, if we give ourselves a very narrow path then yes it will be difficult to remain balanced on that. 

Albert Eienstein said "life is like riding a bicycle you have to keep moving so as to keep your balance"

We have to remain in balance, not become dissapointed or negative, to know there are many opportunities out there, look at things from another angle or perspective, to dare, to try, to not be afraid...... maybe sometimes we are too focused on making it to the other end of the rope (afraid of failure?) these are things we grew to learn, school, education, society, instead of being taught how to remain balanced, peaceful, calm?

Tomorrow we start cycling all 7 of us. We had 3 days now preparing the group, special tests and challenges to open ourselves up to each other; our weaknesses and strengths, rather than it all being a mess along the way, I know these things working with people how difficult it can be, so it has been interesting to see the transformation now in just 3 days from not knowing each other overcoming shyness, to heated debates, finally to accepting each persons needs, weaknesses and abilities, focusing on what is our intention as a group over these next 4 weeks, and feels like we have know each other now for months, a good way to proceed with any group or organisation, I am confident we will reach much higher levels of unity, cooperation and happiness.

What is our intention? Yes to discover happiness through unity, cooperation, flexibility.....


A bit of blah blah........

Many different points of view!!!

..but with the right methods

Peaceful solutions can be found to include everyones needs

OK so there are the rules...lets try to break them!!!

Building Bridges

We are staying in Kochin for a few more days, waiting for the rest of our group to arrive, so we have had time to focus a little bit on our journey ahead, were we will be cycling 850km to Auroville in Pudicherry.

Already we have experienced the first part of that road after taking a bus ride to Palakkad, showing me the worst driving I have ever seen so far, in fact I have seen people drive better after drinking 2 bottles of vodka that these guys, who seem to rely only on a few debatable particles of Krishna that seem to be between us and collision.

Therefore this time I think not to chance cycling with a group of 9 people along this part of India unless we really want to know about God once and for all!!!

After surviving the group cycling experience, details of which are here we will be giving a presentation in Auroville to say why we did it, our philosophies and what we experienced and learnt from it.

For me after travelling thousands of kilometers alone by bicycle; although it was an personal experience far beyond anything I could have imagined, it would have been better if it was shared together.

Life is best realized and enjoyed more when it is shared.

To build a new world we need to build and extend bridges between cultures, class, race and religion. Often we are surprised by the results when we remove our fear of the unknown, and give people a chance to shine.
We all need love.
It is no surprise that the number one medical condition is heart disease, because it is our hearts that are at DISS EASE and finally stop working.

There are quiet places, backwaters. problem
