‘Most people work hard and spend their health trying to achieve wealth.
 Then they retire and spend their wealth trying to get back their
 health.’

 

If you are like so many people today, you’re either short of money and working at something you don’t like in order to get more, or you have more than enough money and not enough time to enjoy the good things in life.

 

I was in that position once – over 20 years ago. Then something changed and I’ve been doing what I love and enjoying the good life ever since.

And now it’s time for me to not only live the good life, but to share with people like you the amazing journey that brought me to this place of contentment and deep fulfilment. 

 

In Search of Simplicity is my true, exciting and serendipitous journey through the wilds ofPapua New Guinea, theHimalayas, around the planet and into the heart of life guaranteed to change the way you see the world.

In Search of Simplicityoffers a gateway into a world in which your deepest dreams and wishes are fulfilled, even before you are aware of them, a gateway into that place of simplicity where you stop struggling and trying to make it happen and simply allow it to happen.
 
When you’re in the right place, doing just what you want to do, and genuinely enjoying it, the Universe bends over backwards to ensure your success.

From the Author:

My search for simplicity carried me all over the world. You could call it a search for a simpler way of living, a more natural way of being.
 
The external journey culminated in living for periods of time with two sets of agrarian people, one Islamic, the other Christian—the Hunzas in their Shangri La stronghold at the roof top of the world and the Trobriand Islanders at their doorstep perched on coral islets in the western Pacific. Each of these societies lives with grace and in balanced harmony with nature.
 
The internal journey took place while staying in Dharmsala, home of the displaced Tibetans and their leader, the Dalai Lama, in northern India. That journey carried me home to the place we’re all seeking, to the source of sustenance spoken of by every mystic, to the Heart of Life itself.
 
It is a story of import to every human being because it is the journey we are all on, a search for the meaning of life.
 
The story is filled with coincidences to the point of disbelief. The journey brought me in contact with inspiring people who dared to be different, who have dared to be themselves.
 
It is an epic adventure. It is a story of love. It has helped me to live my life with a simpler perspective and more meaning. I trust it does the same for you.
  
Years after the events described in In Search of Simplicity took place, I read The Celestine Prophecy for the first time. It feels like my personal journey is like that of the reluctant fictional hero created by James Redfield. I continue to be swept along on a great adventure (of my own making) to discover and to share the magic and the mystery of life. It’s waiting for us all behind every smile and with every breath of the wind.


Blessings,
John

green-pathIt has been said that where judgment exists there is no room for love.

While living in Golden Bay on New Zealand’s South Island I met a man whose wife had been murdered some years before. He was understandably devastated and fell into a funk. Eventually he met a new partner and she encouraged him to follow the path of forgiveness in order to overcome his depression. He began to make regular visits to the perpetrator of this crime against his late wife, in a nearby prison. I was awed at the enormity of forgiveness required to complete such a task. And it obviously worked because he was a happy and peaceful man.

Buddha quoteIn 1987 Sandy MacGregor’s three teenage daughters were murdered, shot-gunned after opening the door to an acquaintance, 27 year old Richard Maddrell, a student one of the girls had met at university. Maddrell was declared a paranoid schizophrenic and found not guilty of murder on the grounds of insanity.

Four years before the murders, Mr. MacGregor had started learning how to harness the power of the subconscious mind through meditation after his son Andrew used the technique to control asthma attacks and to help his recovery following a motorbike accident.

But in his devastated state after the murders Sandy was unable to practice the meditation technique for some months. When he did begin meditating he received a “thought.”

Foregiveness“It was like a voice saying to me, “If you persist in being hateful, angry and revengeful you’re going to end up like ‘that,’ …[like] another victim.”

So Mr. MacGregor decided to work with acceptance, cooperation, unconditional love and forgiveness. It took time but after about four years he felt he was really over the deaths. More recently he has taken the final step in forgiveness by visiting Mr. Maddrell in prison. He made it clear to Mr. Maddrell that he wasn’t condoning his actions but that he was unconditionally forgiving him for the murder of his daughters.

“That was pretty emotional. I could hardly gasp out their names but at the end of it I felt euphoric, lighter; I felt the monkeys were off my back.”

Sandy MacGregor is a happy man. He works with homicide and suicide support groups in Australia and has written a book titled Creating Happiness Intentionally.

What do these two men have in common? They have learned to utilise the formidable power of unconditional forgiveness and love. In each instance they needed to learn to unconditionally accept the actions of another person. And in these two cases the forgiven actions have been about as horrific as anyone can imagine. Yet these men, ordinary human beings like you and me, took the extraordinary step to release anger, hate and revenge. And they then experienced the state of happiness and health that is inherent within us when negative emotional states are relinquished.

A walk across the sunI recently completed a novel titled A Walk Across the Sun. The author, Corban Addison, has created a page-turning story based on the in-depth research this attorney-turned author has done into the burgeoning child-trafficking industry. Although slavery was abolished in the 1800s it is still alive and well in 2015, even in western countries. Addison completes the novel with a list of resources outlining how you can help support the worthy organisations which attempt to help victims of this horrendous crime. A Walk Across the Sun is a highly recommended read for those who like thrillers with a difference.

Holding Hands

Adam approached God and asked, “Why did you create Eve?” God replied, “So that you may love her.”

“Why did you make her so beautiful? I can hardly take my eyes off her.” “So that you may love her.”

“Why did you make her so kind and considerate?” “So that you may love her.”

“But Lord, why did you make her so stupid?” “So that she may love you.”

This opening joke is just that. But like all good humour there’s more than a hint of truth in it, don’t you think?

If men are from Mars and women are from Venus why are we attracted to one another? Is it because Earth is the meeting place, lying midway between our planetary neighbours? Just kidding. But it is not a wonder that men and women sometimes have difficulty understanding one another. Fundamentally, we are different.

Einstein once said: “Men marry women with the hope they will never change. Women marry men with the hope they will change. Invariably they are both disappointed.”

Men and women are created equal but entirely different. As Woody Allen put it: “Men learn to love the woman they are attracted to. Women learn to become attracted to the man they fall in love with.” We all may speak the same language but we interpret the words differently.

Will men ever fully understand women? Will women ever fully understand men? Perhaps not, but there are many examples of where we have learned to live together. And as Neal Stephenson wrote in Snow Crash: “She’s a woman, you’re a dude. You’re not supposed to understand her. That’s not what she’s after . . . . She doesn’t want you to understand her. She knows that’s impossible. She just wants you to understand yourself. Everything else is negotiable.”

That may be a big ask. We can each strive to be ourselves. But will we ever truly understand ourselves. The deeper we look the more mysterious we become. But that shouldn’t stop us from looking. Life is relationship. Whether it be the relationship with our partner, our colleagues, our family, our friends, with nature, with ourselves . . . . It is all relationship and it is all a glorious mystery.

As Osho once said: ‘Life is a mystery to be lived, not a problem to be solved.’ Just live life. Don’t try to fix it. The problems keep coming. No point in looking for them. Just smile through them.

I’ll leave the last words to C. JoyBell C.: ‘The truth is that male or female, gay or straight— we are all people— we have all been broken and put back together in so many different ways . . . it’s really just about learning how to recognize the sound of the other one’s cracks.’

The beach described below.

The beach described below.

We were sitting with friends on the little beach beyond the long stretch of white sand at Rangiputa late one sunny Sunday afternoon.  Two of us had been swimming in the refreshing crystalline waters. We’d laid out a tarp and were picnicking, sharing thin slices of Peter Niepel’s delicious organic sourdough bread (procured by our friends at Kerikeri’s Saturday market) topped with local organic avocado, cucumber and courgette (purchased at the Kaitaia Farmers market).

I’d been sharing stories from Mary Ralph’s compilation of Doubtless Bay’s fishing community’s memories of the past. One such recollection was of the shark hunts in the Rangaunu Harbour and of the subsequent drying of the shark carcasses to provide Maori with a year-long food supply. Those days are long gone but I did see a two-metre-long shark cruise past me the year before while wading near this same beach.

Our friends shared the true tale of a friend of theirs in America. He was driving alone on a remote country road. He noticed something small and moving on the road and stopped to investigate. He was intrigued to find two mice slowly making their way across the road. They each held opposite ends of a tiny twig in their mouths. ‘What are they up to?’ he wondered, bending down for a closer look. It was then he noticed the one mouse was blind.

I’m reminded of the very special Seattle Special Olympics 100 yard dash in 1976. At the sound of the starting gun, all nine contestants started off in their own way, making their best effort to run down the track toward the finish line. That is, except for the one young boy who stumbled soon after his start, tumbled to the ground and began to cry. Two of the other racers, hearing the cries of the boy who fell, slowed down and looked back at him. Then without hesitation, they turned around and began running in the other direction—toward the injured boy.

While the other contestants struggled to make it to the finish line, the two who had turned around to run in the other direction reached for the boy and helped him to his feet. All three of them then linked arms and together they walked to the finish line. By the time the trio reached the end, everyone in the stands was standing and cheering, some with tears streaming down their faces. Even though by turning back and helping the boy who fell, these two Samaritans lost their own chance to win the race, they wore smiles on their faces because they knew they had done the right thing.

Competition presumes winners and losers. We all know the high of watching our modern day gladiators win an important match. We also know the agony of defeat. Let us not forget that we’re all in this thing together. Life is not a competition. As Albert Sweitzer once said: “I don’t know what your destiny will be, but one thing I do know: the only ones among you who will be really happy are those who have sought and found to serve.”

From a recent walk to Cape Brett

From a recent walk to Cape Brett

Often we don’t have the opportunity to create the circumstances of our lives. But we always have the opportunity to create our response to our life circumstances.

Equanimity is a quality at the heart of our ability to feel peaceful no matter what is happening around us.

When one rests in equanimity it doesn’t mean we don’t care about the world. We just accept it as it is. We rest in our own peaceful centre, knowing all is perfect just as it is, even if outer appearances would seem otherwise.

I’m reminded of the Chinese story of the prosperous man. Part of his prosperity is that he owns a horse.

One day his horse runs away. The man is devastated by his loss. He practically tears his hair our looking for his horse. What poor fortune, he thinks.

After a few weeks the horse returns with a wild horse. So now the man has two horses. What great fortune!

The man’s son tries to train the new horse. He rides it for a short time before falling off and breaking his leg. He may always limp. Terrible fortune for my boy, bemoans the man.

Then along comes the army through town, recruiting all the able-bodied young men for a war against the ‘barbarians’. Of course the son can’t go. Oh, what great fortune, thinks the man.

If one could always see the big picture and recognize the interconnectedness of all events one might not be so emotionally entangled with apparent outer circumstances. What may at first appear unfortunate may turn out otherwise. Just because you don’t always see the sun doesn’t stop it from shining. Just because you don’t always feel your heart doesn’t stop it from beating.

Appearances can indeed be deceiving. Thomas Merton encourages us to see the beauty in another. ‘To see the eagle in the egg, the butterfly in the caterpillar and beauty in the sinner.’

Does joy not naturally arise when we recognize the preciousness of life? The French philosopher Andre Guide asserts that we must ‘embrace joy as a moral obligation.’

I was listening the other day to Jack Kornfield. He relayed the following story.

Zorba was walking along and saw an old man planting an almond tree. As we know an almond tree is slow to grow and bear nuts. Zorba asked the old man why he was planting the tree. “I carry on as though I will never die,” answered the old man. “And I live,” said Zorba, “as though I might die at any moment.” They are both right, don’t you think?

A friend told us recently of a practice given her by her Essene teacher: What would you do if this was the last day of your life?

What would you do? Could you treat each day that way?

I have a friend who has grave concerns about smart meters and has been researching some of the possible detrimental effects for some months now.

The new ‘smart’ or ‘advanced’ meters are currently being rolled out nationwide. These meters are wireless and produce pulses of microwave radiation.  They are being used to replace old analogue meters. As of now, smart meters are not compulsory in New Zealand.

imagesNWIAS8Y4Controversy surrounding smart meters initially began overseas where the meters were first introduced.  Since then, hundreds of ‘Stop Smart Meter’ sites and other opposition groups have sprung up, including in New Zealand and Australia; as growing numbers of people reported unpleasant symptoms after smart meter installations and began to question the meters’ safety. To date no tests have been done to confirm that smart meters are safe. In fact, according to Barrie Trower, physicist and microwave expert, there are around 8,300 research papers on effects of ‘non-ionising’ radiation, such as is produced by smart meters, that point to the contrary including research done by the U.S. Navy in 1972.  Some scientists conclude that research into ‘non-thermal’ effects (applicable to smart meters) has been largely overlooked and concentration has been on ‘thermal’ (heating) effects that don’t apply to smart meters.

Smart MeterUtility companies are telling customers, that smart meters are perfectly safe, however a letter titled Smart Meters: Correcting the Gross Misinformation signed by 50 scientists and health professionals (including John Podd, Associate Professor of Psychology (experimental neuropsychology), Massey University) states:

“The statement that there is no established mechanism by which a radio wave could induce an adverse effect on human tissue other than by heating, is incorrect, and reflects a lack of awareness and understanding of the scientific literature on the subject. In fact, more than a thousand studies done on low intensity, high frequency, ‘non-ionising’ radiation, going back at least fifty years, show that some biological mechanisms of effect do not involve heat. This radiation sends signals to living tissue that stimulate biochemical changes, which can generate various symptoms and may lead to diseases such as cancer . . .”

In fact, microwave radiation has been acknowledged to be a “possible carcinogen” by the World Health Organisation’s International Agency for Research on Cancer.

Italy is one country that has chosen to apply the ‘Precautionary Principle’ and has opted for fibre optic cables instead of wireless smart meters

If you’re concerned and/or suffer from electro-sensitivity, and you haven’t yet had a ‘smart’ or ‘advanced’ meter installed, you can contact your power company and tell them you don’t want one. More effective would be to put your objection in writing. The website ‘Stop Smart Meters NZ’ – http://www.stopsmartmeters.org.nz/resources/, has more information on options, and forms you can download e.g. Notice of Non-Consent form and template notices that you can put on your meterbox.

John Garton and Digitalis. Approaching the Trig

John Garton and Digitalis. Approaching the Trig

Last week the Wednesday Walkers were invited to tour the 800 acre farm of John Garton in Fern Flat. Some 6 or 7 years ago John gifted 105 hectares of regenerating hill-country native bush as an open space covenant of the Queen Elizabeth II National Trust —a generous move on the part of a farmer whose family has owned this land for 94 years.

Steep going up.

Steep going up.

John, who turns 80 next year, guided us on a walk that would have exhausted many a younger man. He shared stories from his youth, noting the incredible community spirit that once enveloped the rural area he called home. ‘Whenever a house was sold, the whole community would hold a farewell party for those leaving,’ recalled John. Then, a week after the new people had moved in, the process would be repeated so that the newcomers had a chance to meet all their neighbours.

And steep going down.

And steep going down.

The social fabric of the community was strong and the nature of life resulted in strong, fit people. Children either walked or went on horseback to and from school. Couples met at the regular dances held in the community halls of the area. John expressed concern that young people growing up today don’t have the benefits of the strong community bonds of yesteryear. Something to think about.

John Garton and his faithful farm dog.

John Garton and his faithful farm dog.

Trudging up and down the steep hills of the family farm must have played a part in keeping John fit. Despite being on his second pacemaker he is still able to shear 100 sheep in a day.

While preparing this post I browsed the Queen Elizabeth II National Trust website. I came across a story I have repeated to many others. A very inspiring story.

Robert ‘Mútt’ Lange, a successful songwriter and music producer, and ex-husband of Shania Twain, has gifted 53,000 hectares to Queen Elizabeth II National Trust as an open space covenant. In essence he has gifted New Zealanders a block of land 10 times larger than any other open space covenant ever given in New Zealand. Why, you might ask? Because he wants to make a difference. He has a team of people who have thus far eradicated 7,500 feral goats and are planting around 12,000 native trees and plants a month in the 8-9 months each year that allow planting in this mountainous part of the South Island.

Please click below to see a six minute clip on Campbell Live. I hope you are as inspired as I am. Here’s a man who cares and who is putting his money where his mouth is. What a great example some of our empire-building leaders could learn from. Who’s next?
