It feels good...

to love the world. To love every being, everything and everyone. If you find yourself struggling day by day, how about trying something. Change how you think for a day. When something bad happens, why not think positive about it. It cant hurt! You can learn from experiences that challenge you. See if you feel different about the world, about yourself, about other people. Wouldn't you rather love the world than hate the world.

Everyone deserves love. Everyone deserves happiness. Feel love and happiness within yourself, and share this to everyone you know and don't know. A smile can change a person's day. A smile can change how a person perceives the world. Why not try smiling at every stranger that walks by. Occasionally you'll find that the person will smile back at you. This brings the other person happiness, and it brings you happiness. Even if they don't smile back, you are still smiling, and this is important.

Walk with a sense of awe. You are walking on Earth, an object floating in dark matter. You are walking on the only place we know so far that contains and sustains life. Walk with your head up, you never know what you'll see when you are open to it, when you are observing life around you. There is so much beauty on this planet, so much raw nature that is often over-looked. The sight of a bird flying through the wind, moving so peacefully, so freely. The sun casting rays of light though the clouds. Clouds dissolving into nothingness as they move through the sky. Water, completely still. Water, moving in ripples. The moon, glowing in the darkness. Venus, always the first to greet us as day becomes night.

Never forget just how magnificent this little planet is in the scheme of things.
We are part of the Universe, something utterly amazing.

Sun is in the sky,

oh why, oh why, would I wanna be anywhere else :-)
(in the words of Lily Allen of course)

It's been a while since the last blog, but hello once again! The holidays are over, and this is the first weekend since work has begun for the new year! The two week holiday I had was lovely. Spent it with various people and at various places. Traveled to the Southbound Musical Festival with Jae and Cat last weekend. That was a great experience. We traveled down on the Friday morning (thank you Jae for driving us) and camped over the two days until Sunday. We saw live acts such as Soko, Tegan and Sara, Santagold, Lykke Li, parts of The Grates (hope to see more soon!), Architecture in Helsinki, Dash and Will and Atmosphere (off the top of my head!). It's so nice seeing so many different styles of music and how the artists interact with their band members and the crowd. It was a really lovely weekend.

Before that, was New Years! Myself, Cat and family + friends enjoyed boogieing down at Origin (a large Drum and Bass, Hip hop and Dub Step festival) on New Years Eve. It was great seeing a lot of the Drum and Bass crew (hello to all of you, my love is yours) and it was great to have a good dance! Some of the DJ's that Cat and I saw were Noisia, Chase and Status, D-Bridge and Jenna G and a bit of Public Enemy.
The Drum and Bass was kick ass.. <3. Wouldn't of minded a bit louder so you can really FEEL that bass run through your body but it was amazing anyway.

I have swapped my room around... getting some fung shei happening. I can already feel this different sort of energy. It's great. Also trying not to spend too much time on the computer, hence why there hasn't really been blogs. Just been enjoying outside.. but this wont be neglected to say the least!

Last news is: I got the tattoo finally.
It reads


on the right inside of my arm.

"I honor the place in you in which the entire universe dwells. I honor the place in you which is of Light, of Love, of Integrity and of Peace. When you are in that place in you, and I am in that place in me, we are One."

Thank you universe for so many beautiful beings.

Hope everyone is well and sharing the love around :-)
If you're reading this, let me know what you did for your New Years :-)

Universal Love <3.

Tonight's blog is all about non-attachment. From what I've learnt over the past few months, and experienced, I can say that being able to stay non-attached is a great way to live. I practice non-attachment because I know I am not loosing anything by doing so. When I say non-attached, I do not mean disconnected. It just means that whatever the outcome, you have not lost anything within you and you can get on with living. In past experience - when I have been attached to a partner and the relationship has ended, then the following would happen. I would give myself the reasoning that I deserve time to heal from such heartbreak. I would spend my days thinking that the likelihood of meeting, let alone being with someone as amazing as I considered my last partner to be an impossible outcome. The thing is - why should I (or anyone for that matter) spend time after the end of a relationship being unhappy about the outcome when we could be living in the present moment, instead of reliving the past. I guess what I've heard (and experienced) is that commonly one person in a relationship does not appreciate the time they have spent with their loved one, so that when things come to an end, they wish they could of done things differently, and sometimes even end up blaming themselves. The best way to really appreciate your loved one, is to be present with them in every moment. There is no need to think about the past or the future when you are with them at the present moment. Enjoy the moment with them. Make them happy and you will be happy. Try to spend time with them being as positive as you can. Do not dwell on things. Try to control your imagination so that negative thoughts don't come to mind. You have the choice to think what you want to think. You are not your thoughts. You are the thinker of the thoughts. Everything happens for a reason in my eyes, therefore, I will and accept everything that happens.

This idea applies to "personal" possessions as well. What makes an object personal to you? I guess this would be something you have bought, found, made or been given which you have some sort of attachment to, emotional or what not. Say you kept all your personal possessions in your room, and your room happened to burn down. Well, you would be without your possessions and your room, and I'm sure most people would be quite unhappy about this. It is important to see that you are not your possessions. What you call your own, has never and will never really be your own. There is no need to see things as your own. There is no need to create an identity with the objects you own. SO, you've lost your possessions. What to do now? It is at times like these were you can look beyond possessions, beyond the "I", the self. Along with your destroyed possessions, your room has also been damaged. In all reality though, your room is not your room, it is a room in which you live. The way society has been constructed has given everyone the idea that we are all separate human beings. That by owning certain material objects give us a higher or lower status, that we can use objects to explain who we are. What is inside is who you truly are. Have you ever thought about monks and their lifestyle? From the types of monks I've read about, they do not care for money, for clothing, for possessions, for hair styles, for luxurious beds and so on. Ah, if we could all live like this, the world would be a better place. There is nothing wrong with having all these things though, but it is when you separate yourself from others because of these things. When you believe you are better than someone. When you believe you are incapable of living without a certain item. This is when it becomes a problem. Today, if the guitar I have bought was to be smashed into thousands of little pieces, it would be not a problem at all. I am not attached to this guitar. I can always get another, and another, and another. Next time something that you own gets ruined, lost or stolen, take notice of your reaction and have a look inside you. Have you really lost anything? Your soul? Maybe this has happened to test you? Maybe this has happened for a certain reason? Maybe it's time to move on. Everything takes time - and learning to be unattached is not as easy as it seems but it is definately worth taking notice of. I hope this has given you an insight into practicing non-attachment.

I hope we all understand that even if you or a friend of yours does not follow this, it is okay. Accept this. Say a friend has just bought an expensive car that he/she saved up for a year to buy. The first day they take this car on the road, there is an accident and the car is written off. Your friend is in need of someone to complain to. Your friend is angry and upset at the situation. The best thing you can do in these types of situations is to not feed her negative emotions. Remain positive. Having a car written off is not a bad experience. It is just an experience, and how you choose to react to that experience is up to you entirely.

Coming up next, non-resistance and non-judgment!

I hope you have all had a beautiful weekend - I sure have.
Embrace the beauty around you for it is always there.

Celebrations all around.

Good afternoon beautiful beings. Today, the weather has been unpredictable so far. Just a few hours ago it was raining which by all means is not a bad thing - especially for thriving plants, animals and crops. It only becomes a slight problem when my brother is throwing a party tonight which is mainly outside! I guess that unpredictable weather is just a reminder that life is unpredictable. You can only expect or assume so much, but in the end, the outcome is what it is and we should be willing to accept, cherish and love the outcome. You also have the power to create any outcome you seek. Reality is not set in stone.

On a related note, I am also due to present a speech to my brother Davie as it's his 21st year in this life form (well, in a month it will be!). I should start that soon, VERY soon!

The rugs in my room have been kidnapped to use downstairs, so now my floor is as bare as.. well.. floor boards. The room suddenly looks a lot more wooden. I guess this kind of makes sense considering the bed frame, bed side table frame, floor and acoustic guitar all are of a similar colour.. I haven't quite appreciated it like this until now.

Last night, a group of us celebrated Jae's 18th celebration at Connections (Jae is a close friend of mine and Connections is a gay club in Perth). I had a great time as I'm sure every one else did as well. There was sweet music, free alcohol and a lot of happy people. I saw some girls I hadn't seen for a year - that was nice! When the night came to an end, I was lucky enough to spend my unconsciousness hours lying (but really, passed out) next to a beautiful being who I then had the pleasure of waking up next to.

Will blog soon!

Lot's of love to everyone reading and not reading and remember, the more you smile externally, the more you smile internally.

Love, Integrity, Wisdom, Peace.
