I have this quote from Terrance McKenna above my desk. It serves as a reminder that so many challenges that we face as humanity can be overcome when we break free from the shackles of our egoic fear and greed driven conditioning and we raise our level of thinking to a evolved level of consciousness. It’s not necessarily an easy choice but it’s definitely a worthwhile one!
I’ve just finished a 2 day meditation retreat and it’s amazing how just 2 days of stepping out of the busyness of life can help to cleanse the lens of perception. ⁣ ⁣ Unless we periodically allow our minds to settle they will forever be clouding our experience of life... getting caught up in worry, comparison, jealousy, greed, guilt and all the other aversions and attachments that do not serve us are simply the outcomes of a busy mind!⁣ ⁣ But like water when we give the mind time to settle... eventually it will become still... and when it becomes still it becomes clear... and with clarity comes vitality!⁣ ⁣ So give yourself the time to stop. To sit. To meditate. To observe. To release. To relax. To cleanse your lense!
I got this with a parcel today... it’s funny how the universe (or postman) delivers a message that hits home just when you need it. ⁣ ⁣ The last few days my head has been buzzing with big ideas around starting a podcast, doing a load of you tube videos, starting to blog consistently... basically start to put considered and valuable content out into the world! Stuff that I genuinely believe will help other people rather than just adding to the noise. ⁣ But at the same time it can be easy to feel overwhelmed and not know where to start... luckily my message from a crystal ball had the answer 👉⁣ ⁣ ‘Great things are done by a series of small things brought together’ ⁣ ⁣ Break it down, small steps, consistency is key. Thanks Vincent and thanks @girlwitharadiomind for the personal touch and inspiration 👍
‘Enjoy the little things in life, for one day you may look back and realise they were the big things’

The waves are building and expected to hit 16ft by late afternoon with perfectly grooming offshore winds... nature sure knows how to put on a show and I’m ready and waiting in the front row!
Just my morning ice bath in a wheelie bin... somehow so much more enjoyable than my usual cold showers... I highly recommend it if you e got a spare bin around 🥶
The good life is about doing the things you love with the people you love. #makingmemories
“Happiness is not having what you want, but wanting what you have”
It can be easy to fall into the trap of always chasing... more stuff, more knowledge, more control over our lives. But the art of letting go is where the real growth and progress comes... letting go of our limitations, letting go of wanting, letting go attachments. When you let go, you let flow! And when you flow, that’s all you need to know 💫

If you want to make changes in your life then I highly recommend this book. The majority of our behaviours are driven by unconscious automatic habits... but not all of our habits benefit us. Intellectually we know the things that we want to be doing, the things that we should be doing... and yet we continuously defer to old limiting patterns of behaviour... these behaviours shape our self identity. To change who we are... to do the things we want to do, to achieve our wildest dreams... it all starts with the implementation of tiny habits... small steps in the right direction... and over time these changes compound... over time we shape a new identity based on experiencing new possibilities. Habits are the ultimate solution to effective behaviour change. Read the book and implement the learnings. @james_clear #atomichabits
A few weeks ago I reorganised my apps into files and basically made it really tricky to find my social media apps which has resulting in me no longer impulsively going on instagram... and as a result of removing an unconscious impulsive habit I’ve spent a lot less time on social media... and it’s felt good. That said I also love Instagram for its inspiration and as a channel for sharing content... so now I’m building a new habit of conscious social media usage... one where I get the good bits but remove the potential negatives of over use. I’m stepping back in from the wilderness and moving forward on a new path. A better path.
Let’s talk about action. ‘Action is commonplace, right action is not. As a discipline, it’s not any kind of action that will do, but directed action. Everything must be done in service of the whole. Step by step, action by action, we’ll dismantle the obstacles in front of us. With persistence and flexibility, we’ll act in the best interests of our goals. Action requires courage, not brashness - creative application and not brute force. Our movements and decisions define us: we must be sure to act with deliberation, boldness and persistence!’ - excerpt from The Obstacle is the Way by @ryanholiday
