Who Set's The Pace?

Why do some people achieve something quicker than others?

With seemingly the same amount of effort, time, desire and resources two people come to different conclusions and different results.

But you know what? If you judge yourself against another, try to match their pace or even outstrip their achievements you are carrying the wrong mindset.

What matters is you, your goals and your level of satisfaction measured against a realistic and achievable outcome for you.

Who Loses The Most From Unfilled Potential?

What do you do when you can feel it inside.

It's like a caged animal, restrained animal power that if unleashed, has unlimited potential.

How frustrating it can feel at times to be unable to activate, access or even reach what you know deep down is your potential or even more so... your destiny.

Unlocking unlimited potential, supreme intelligence and unfulfilled desires... how's that for a target for 2009!?! :P

Pain Is Weakness Leaving Your Body...

Was given a quote by a friend once:

"Pain Is The Weakness Leaving Your Body"

Well I wish it would hurry up and go!

Went for a run this morning and my left butt cheek is still saying to me "owwwwwww"

Time... Who Has Time?

Why does there never seem to be enough time for anything?

Is the obstacle within myself or are external forces conspiring to block me?

Or is that just another excuse?

Talking about meditation again... I can imagine it to be a path to higher learning, but just setting off on the journey is full of false starts...

Meditation And Motocross... The Two Finally Meet

Two of my favourite topics for the moment came together today.

I have a question on one of my pages:

The question was asked "i get very nervous during a race which makes me have bad starts , so how do i stop this?"

The answer is to concentrate, focus on the task at hand.

Then it hit me... he needs to meditate.

I heard a top rider of the late 80's, early 90's Jean-Michel Bayle say that being pumped up and agitated is not the state you want to be in before you start a motocross race.

So discovering a calmness or stillness within is vital to perform at your optimum!

Meditation and motocross... has a nice ring to it dont you think? :P

Meditation For Children

Well it's not really for children, i'm the one doing the meditating, but I have found a 'bonus' to my meditating.

My daughter is quite lively. So when it comes time for bed it can be difficult (to say the least) to get her to quiet down and sleep.

She is 6 so we are not talking about a baby or toddler, but a very precocious young lady... :P

Finding time to meditate has been an issue for me... I may have mentioned it once or twice... so if I sit by my daughters bed and start meditating, I find she goes to sleep in no time!

Bonus!!! lol

No Time or Being Too Hard On Myself?

Busy at work, too tired at home...

I didn't add any web pages the last few days so I did 3 today.

Also found some videos by Gary Semics. Old but great stuff

Reflexology... Another "Ology"

Had a 'reflexology' session in the afternoon.

Apparently your whole body can be accessed through your feet... no wonder i smell :P

A very nice, calming older Chinese lady named Jessie comes to our workplace and with skillful hands sends you off to another place altogether.

I yawned the rest of the afternoon!

No Time To Meditate.... Again

I have read that if you can't find time or forget something important it can be a deeply embedded emotional block that is impeding your progress or personal growth.

I believe that. And it is a trait I'm am trying to... and finding difficult to rid from my (for want of a better word) character.

Just like when I went over 30 days in a row writing articles to post online with ease, now I find myself stagnate and without motivation.

But am I or is my sub-conscious mind making that my reality???

Hmmmm... time to fight back!

Busy Day... Never Time To Meditate

Seem to be finding myself extremely busy lately. Not meditating as I dont seem to have the time.

You know something... that is exactly when I should be meditating.

Using meditation to slow down the manic pace of life, or more to the point, slow down the manic pace of the mind!

So an effort is to be made. Not that tough, but needs to be made.

And for a change of topic completely...

More Motocross Riding Tips

My good buddy Brendan Bell of MXtv is putting together a quality digital show on cable tv.

I have to admire him for one thing...

He is doing what he loves!

Brendan used to work for an insurance company in debt collection but his real love was motocross.

He had an idea to put together Australia's first motocross television show.

He was put on to me when he heard about a video I put together. He needed someone to film and edit the show.

Brendan is a great guy and we've since become good friends.

Do what you love and the rest will follow...

House Still Standing But 49 People Died

The bushfires are still raging here in Victoria and on the good side... my parents house is still standing.

Touch wood the fires burn themselves out soon.

Unfortunately many people were unprepared for the verocity of the fires and were caught in their cars trying to flee.

Sincerest sympathies to family and friends who have lost love ones...

Scorcher Of A Day, Is The House Still Standing?

Been another scorcher of a day here. Hottest on record I think they said on the news.

Was a bit hard to concentrate at the time though as they were showing images of raing bushfires very, VERY close to where I grew up.

So close in fact I rang my mum. She was given only 10 minutes to get anything out of her home before clearing the area.

She is staying with my sister tonight and as my dad is still in hospital I don't know the current state of my childhood home... At least the most important people are safe.

Mind Defeats Body... Finally

Another running tale, but it's current and topical :P

I went for a run today. Had a break of a week and a half so as usual at the start I was wondering if i'd keep going.

And midway through (we are only talking about 3 to 4 k's) I started to develop a stitch on my right side.

Thoughts of stopping ran through my mind, but for once, and to my surprise, I told myself to run through it.

And I did...

Usually it's my mind that gives in before my body.

Thinking of the Rocky song now "Getting Strongerrrrrrrrr!!!"

How Powerful Can One Become?

Continual meditation... sucessful meditation is about discovering the self. Gaining awareness, understanding and knowledge of all fabric of the universe.

Becoming apart of the universal consciousness is like one drop of the ocean being connected to the whole.

It has been witnessed that those who have achieved enlightenment (achieved full knowledge of the self and thus returned to the source) can manipulate cells, atoms, time and space!

How cool is that? Just from sitting and deeply and consciously sleeping!!!

Now that's something I can get in to!!!

Here is part 9 in the 'How to Meditate' series:

Never Eat Airline Food Again!!!

My father is receiving radiation therapy at the moment to try and diminish cancer cells that have invaded other areas of his body.

In a perfect world I would have mastered meditation, discovered the way to manipulate the fabric of space and time, alter cells and transfer sickness from the frail body to my own...

It's peculiar... how a love for one person can be so strong that you would be willing to trade their pain for your health... but never actually say the words out loud.

Are the words meaningless without action? Are the words even necessary?

This blog has gotten a bit melancholy i think so...

How about free travel worldwide?

Sounds cool doesn't it. Well part 8 of the series on how to meditate is at the end of the link below and it is getting exciting!

Now you get to the stage where you feel movement of your astral body. And then...
