Be here now. Be. Here. Now. That’s really all there is.
A good teacher doesn’t actually have to do much. A good student will be paying enough attention to learn the next thing they are ready for.
Be patient with others. They’ll get it eventually.
Let others know clearly and simply if you don’t want to be touched.
Let others know clearly and simply if you do.
Immerse yourself fully in what you’re doing and when you’ve had enough, put it aside.
You are not alone. There is always at least one good soul right by your side. Just look.
Do. Lots. Then rest.
Rest. Lots. Then do some more.
There is nothing of real interest on telly. Music is a good thing though. Listen to music all the time, dance, sing along loudly & laugh. And the songs you make up and make you laugh are probably the best ones.
Sleep. With gusto.
There is nothing wrong and EVERYTHING right about bring intensely curious.
Keep sniffing about the same places again and again. There is bound to be something you haven’t spotted before.
When you’ve had enough of something, just walk away and find something else.
Listen to others. Consider it. Weigh it up. Then do what you know is right.
Wait. It’ll come.
Do it when YOU feel ready enough. (The enough bit is important). Don’t let others coerce you to do it before you feel ready enough; if it’s important enough, they’ll wait.
Shake it off.
Stand your ground.
Live in THIS moment.
Life is mostly just about happiness and freedom.
The best gifts are the simple ones that come from the heart and let the other know you’ve thought of them, not yourself.
The pure always act from love.
Trust. Keep trusting. But sometimes you need to open your eyes and see that some people don’t know how to be trustworthy. It’s not necessarily their fault; just don’t wait too long to put some distance between you and them.
Live your truth with equanimity. Others may not like it but they will get over it in time. And when they do, they will remember you well.
Love has no strings.
There comes a time to let go. Of everything.
Forgive my indulgence in this post. Charlie was one of the best teachers I’ve ever had. I watched intensely how he lived. He was my shadow for 15 beautiful years. He died at home in my arms on March 30, 2018. I miss him terribly.
I am Director of Quantum Shift Global, based in London. I apply a cutting edge human technology to assist people to make the changes in behaviour and attitude that they and their businesses need in an increasingly "social" business world.
