"World-Healers" an excerpt from What Matters Now

This excerpt from What Matters Now - really touched me - and I didn't want you to miss it so here it is. Thank you Seth Godin for making this possible.

All traditional cultures recognize certain people as
natural-born mystical healers (shamans, medicine
men, pick your label). Modern Western culture
has no category for such people. But that doesn’t
mean they aren’t here. Right now, everywhere,
ordinary people born to the archetype of the
shaman are feeling compelled to begin finding one
another and fulfilling their inborn purpose.

The great challenge of the 21st century is to wage
peace on a globe full of humans while repairing the
unintended damage we’ve inflicted on ourselves,
other beings, and the earth. We need modern
shamans to channel ancient “technologies of
magic” like empathy, creativity, art, and spiritual
interconnection, through “magical technologies”
like medicine, computers, and satellites.

That marriage of ancient and cutting-edge genius can
heal hearts, minds, beasts, plants, ecosystems—
almost anything.
If you feel something stirring in your heart at the
thought that you may be shaman-born, pay

This is not an accident. Some as-yet
unexplained force is calling you join in a healing of
unprecedented scope. And though that healing
will, of course, follow the laws of science, doing it
will feel like pure magic.

Martha Beck, Ph.D., is a coach, writer, and columnist for O, the
Oprah Magazine.

What Matters Now

These days it becomes so important to really connect - to be real - to say what you mean - to mean what you say - there is no point any more in beating around the bush, there is not time any more to hold grudges, to bother about regrets, and past events. They are simply the ghost in the machine - the unreal. Ghosts are not real - they only start to appear so if we give them a lot of energy.

Its time to recognise them for what they are - simply ghosts and as such they can be blown away in a small puff of wind. Don't let them become real by giving them any energy. When the guilt or the fear or the regret or the anger or the dislike of self arises - recognise it - "You are just a ghost - begone!"

After the Flood

My friend Ruby of the Daily Apple took me last week - to visit Marikina - Provident Village where the worst of flooding hit two weeks ago. Poor Manila - another typhoon just yesterday.

Ruby and I sat in the back of the car as we drove quietly and slowly through the streets of Provident Village. The road was surprisingly smooth... none of the usual potholes and bumps of the roads that are difficult to keep up in this country.

The reason for the smooth ride - mud from flood had filled all the nooks and crannies in the road. Possibly one of the only benefits felt by the flooding.

Abandoned cars litter the sides of the road here.. no discrimination between Mercedes and old taxi cabs and beat up wrecked trishaws... all filled with mud and many smashed with the force of the water.

Everybody who is still trying to re-inhabit their houses - have their furniture.. their lives out on the street - scrubbing - washing - rinsing - trying to reduce the staining and the damp and the mold beginning to develop on all of their possessions that are water soaked and mud caked.

The energy feels so devastated - Ruby and I hold hands in the back of the car and simply cry - the tears fall for the people who have lost everything in this flood.. for those who have simply walked away from their houses and their ruined posessions - and for those that had nothing before the floods came and have even less now - for their shanty town cardboard and corrugated iron shacks are taken miles down river in pieces.

But the really amazing part of this is that there are still people here smiling - that the spirit in the Filipino people is strong and resilient and shows us all that the human spirit is stronger than the floods - and when we hold hold hands we too are strong and can rise above the flood waters to live and love again.

I salute the Filipino people - who are flooded and washed away and lose all including family members and still show us that together is the only way to live and is the way that we will move through the trials and tribulations of these times.

Take heed of their lessons - it is time to hold hands.

On the Brink of Change - Connection is the Key.

I have been away - no excuse for not writing - but sometimes it is beneficial to be removed from the computer and available to other influences. I went to Bali to the Roger Hamilton event on Wealth Dynamics.

What an amazing week.

The four day workshop brought revelation after revelation - and I filled a whole special notebook that my sister Sahaja had given me with scrawled writing in an effort to keep up with the torrent of Roger's information.

He was in absolutely fine form. He seemed to simply download from the universal knowledge pool and flowed so much value to us all.

And after the actual seminar, we headed to Vision Villas - the creation of Roger and his family - a place of deep reflection that allowed each person to experience the opening and the opportunities that were in every meeting.
There we spent one day - 33 of us - brainstorming about the best ways to create XL Nation - a nation of connected individuals with a common purpose to create World Wide Wealth.
Here's a short clip of Roger Hamilton - he is talking about XL Nation and if you click the highlighted link you can see the video. XL Nation.

And after the formalities in the seminar room were over .. the real connecting began.

I am back in Perth now.. till I go to see Ruby Cruz (see last blog post) next week in Manila..

and its great to be home.

But hey.. you are in for a treat if you live in Perth and you're reading this.. because Roger is coming to Perth on the 30th Oct.

Heart to heart.. I suggest to you that you take time out to spend with him and us on that day.

We are all perched on the brink of some incredible changes on our planet and we need to become connected. Anything that gives us the tools to do this in the most effective way should certainly be investigated and employed right now.

Roger has some wonderful insights that will stimulate very fertile connections.

Don't miss him.

The Spirit of the Filipinos

I have been planning a trip to Manila soon and since the disaster that hit last week, was concerned that it may be the wrong time to go. People are still battling their trials with the floods. But this is what my good friend Ruby Cruz had to say by email today .. it touched me very much.

Hi Shazar. Glad to know you're home safe. Yes, Manila is still a disaster, but only on the east side of the Metropolis, which is still waterlogged up to now. There has been a tremendous outpouring of support from all sectors nationwide.

We Filipinos are known for that --- we call it the "bayanihan" spirit. Also, you can't be human if you're not moved by the plight of the flood victims.

I shed a tear when I found my kids staying up late at night, only to pack first (without touching their homeworks, which was to be for later) their old clothes which will be given to the fund drive for the victims at their school.
We have been flood victims three times in the past, and it is really a terrible experience, during and after the flood.

We islanders are used to this kind of life (typhoons are always expected to hit, and floods depend on the tide at the time the typhoon/ rains come), but the city dwellers are new to this, and to think this is the worst to date that has happened in the metropolis area.

And if you consider that we are 90 million Filipinos, with concentration in Metro Manila, the number of people that you see on tv is as what is expected: there are many victims, and the ones who suffer most are those from the poorest families who have no alternative but to stay at evacuation centers and rely on the kindness of others for their meal.

We are a resilient people, so resilient that we even love Imelda Marcos and are just in awe of her when she passes us by, forgetting the many crimes to humanity both she and her dictator husband have inflicted on the Filipinos. So this too shall pass in no time. Good or bad, depends on how you take it.

For the most part, the business area of the metropolis has not been affected. So it's still work as usual.

So yes, I am still going late October . and will be very pleased to be able to give back something to these people who have such a wonderful spirit.

Say No to Mandatory Vaccinations

Let us not follow in the footsteps of the draconian laws being passed in the USA to enforce us and our children to be vaccinated. This is a fundamental right to our health freedom and we need to make a stand on this. Action today can help us to maintain our freedom of choice.

There are too many unknown factors involved in these rushed through 'solutions' to what is very likely to be a manufactured 'pandemic'. We must keep ourselves educated about our rights and maintain our ability to say No when we wish.

Please support the Australian Vaccination Network and check out their work. They have been tireless in their continual search for clear and unbiased information about the effects of vaccines and have not had an easy time of their efforts to keep the information available to us all.

Great message from Seth Godin

When we teach people about our story or our industry or about making connections, the teaching lasts.

I appreciate this point of view so much.. sharing what we know - communicating what is important to us - giving freely of what has meant much in our own lives - revealing the personal.
I was with a friend recently - and I suggested to him that great teachers most often talk about their real life personal selves - and that perhaps what he could give best and to most effect was of the personal - he said - "won't people find that boring?"

I don't think so .. the real boring is the pedantic mode of "this is right and we have to change this .. or change that.. for anything to be okay."

Keep it personal.. keep it what you really understand from the inside of you - and you will always have an audience - for what you are sharing is real and if it is of the heart then even better.

To teach is not to "hold forth" - but to share - in fact to be that which you wish to teach.

The Dark or the Light?

I have had an interesting day. This morning I read a long discourse by David Icke on vaccinations .. swine flu and so on. He made some very good points.. and it really took me in..
and I posted it on my FaceBook.. because I thought it worthy to bring the attention of others to this information that could shift the course of humanity.

And tonight I took it down.. I deleted the post - because I saw yet again that the fight and even the thought of the protest is a focus in a false direction. That the focus has to be steadfastly on the light..

Once again as in any 'dis-ease' when we put our attention on the chaos and the disorder.. that can only increase. This is such a fine line to walk.. such a delicate and subtle balance to be played.

My mind questions it.. and says, in that incessant small voice.. "Does this, can this really be the way? To simply put the attention on what we wish to create.. to put the attention on a planet of harmony - a place of birds and song and connection. a place of light. To dream the dream.

And then I wonder .. what about Krishna who fought the good fight?
And Arjuna, and Christ with the money changers in the temple.. and .. and.. and....

The mind continues to create its own story to keep me out of my flow..

Accept the mind.. and the mind becomes tamed..
and able to be employed in a useful manner.

It's all a trick.. it is all Maya - the illusion.
Connection - coherence - communication.
Only this will bring us back to ourselves.

Obstacles are Re-Routing You

I get a regular snippet from Neale Donald Walsch and one of his recent posts talked about how obstacles that we come across are not opposing us, but merely re-routing us. He said 'gently re-routing' - well sometimes they are not so gentle! but as he went on to say:

It is important not to view that which stands in your way as your 'enemy.' It can often be your best friend, sending you on a detour that takes you around what could have been your biggest stumbling block.

This is so true and we are well advised to consider this whenever those roadblocks appear.
There is a wonderful story that many of you may know about the farmer who had a son and lived in a poor area - one day a horse jumped over the fence and was in their field. The son was very happy and excited as this made them rich..(good luck) the father said.. let us see. The son rode the horse - but was thrown off and broke his leg, (bad luck) the army came and took all the young men from the village - but left him behind because of the break (good luck) - the horse escaped - (bad luck) - it came back with more horses - (good luck.)

And Neale Donald Walsch continued:

Send a word of gratitude, then, for anything that seems to be 'opposing' you now. All things in life happen for good. Trust God about that.

Next time something happens to you that seems to be blocking you, getting in your way or simply 'bad luck' take a second look - let a little time pass and then consider it in the light of the above. You will very often be surprised!

Frogs Chorus Tonight....

Am I ever lucky! I am still at Rocky Hall.. and tonight after a day of mist and rain we are almost deafened by the frog chorus outside. They are chortling - and the fire is creaking in the grate.

Being here has allowed me to see ever more clearly that at this time in our evolution and our process, it is so clearly required to be focused on the harmonious. It is essential to keep our view and our intention on the light.

According to all the predictions - which are now becoming heard even mainstream - time as we know it is coming to a close soon. We are nearing the end of two huge cycles in our earth's existence.. the yuga's of the Indian continent - the Mayan predictions, the words of Nostradamus.. all are pointing toward a big change.

But do not forget we are living on a planet of choice.

It is time to really dream our own dream.. to create by dreaming - to envisage our own lives .. in the way in which we would like to live - to keep our one pointedness on this vision in order to bring it into being,

we are not going to become healthy by focusing on disease.
we cannot create peace by focusing on war.
we cannot have harmonious relationships while harbouring grudges.
our children cannot grow into wise future leaders while being jammed into a mold.
we cannot love our neighbour while we stay rooted in fear of the different.
we cannot nurture our souls while staying in our heads.

I could go on.. but I am sure you really get the picture!

What is it you and I would like to create together for the time of the change? It can only be rooted in the heart.
As Leonard Cohen once said
"Love is the only engine of survival."

Time Out

Everyone needs time out.. problem is sometimes we get so involved in our 'stuff' and the things we consider to be 'really important' that we forget to simply take the time to sit and wonder.
It is just as important if not more than all the focused planning and goal setting we may do. Because in the space - in the gap - in the moment in between is where the 'new' or the inspiration is able to slip in. When our minds and hearts are so busy with our day to day doings and rushings, and concern with the passing of precious time - we forget to allow that stillness to penetrate and renew us.

Its easy for me to do these musings today - I am sitting at a place called Rocky Hall, surrounded by the bush - immersed in the silence that is filled with birdsong and the rustling of the trees heralding the coming of the breeze from across the valley.
It reminded me to remind you to take time out. It is essential to the soul.

Energy Medicine - New Paradigms of Healing

If you are in Perth on Wednesday the 23rd of September, check out this talk - it promises to be an evening worth attending.

Presented by Shazar Robinson whose passion is uncovering the deepest aspects of healing - sharing her insights and giving a broad perspective on health, healing and balance. She has over 16 years clinical practice and is a regular speaker at conferences both in Australia and internationally.

Shazar condenses the essence of the most significant aspects of healing into her presentation. It would be great if all health care practitioners gained this understanding … Robert Gammal BDS FACNEM(dent) Founder and past president ASOMAT.

The talk is for both health practitioners and anyone who is interested in this evolving and expanding topic.


Just spent two days with the teenagers of Perth - at StepUp. These future leaders were amazing.. they just went from slouching in to dancing out in two days!
The slogan of the event is:
If its possible for you
Its possible for me
Its just a matter of HOW!

This is such a great cause to support - I was proud to be there as a coach - and I highly recommend it both as an event for teenagers and the experience of being a coach there. The first day was tough.. the second day blew my mind.

If there is a StepUp coming to a city near you - find out how you can support this great movement designed to educate and excite teenagers about the possibilities for their future in business and in life, by bringing high profile, inspirational business, sporting and other leaders and teens together.

Juicing for Life!

Hey folks - talking about "now time" - let's keep some balance here.
If we are low energy, not feeding ourselves right, sludging around in toxic emotions and chemical additives in our food - all those things that keep us slowed down and dumbed down - it is time to do something about that.

One of the fastest ways of creating high energy and renewing sources of life enzymes and light in our bodies is to take in those enzymes and light energy from foods that are full of it.

What are they?
Think organic - think as fresh as possible - so buying from your local farmer's market is the best way to go.

- that way you get the essence of these vegetables in a form that is highly digestible, in a very concentrated form.

Juicing vegetables -
throw in a couple of organic apples, a knob of ginger, half a whole lemon - a handful of mint, some carrots - a beetroot, a couple of cticks of celery
and you have a meal that cannot be surpassed.

But wait..

any old juicer just won't do the trick. Those highspeed centrifugal juicers that rip the vergies to shreds and take ages to clean just do exactly that.. they tear the enyzmes apart.

The absolute best juicer we have found is the type that crushes the vegetables and fruit.. it grinds, and using a single gear motor you can really push those vegies through it without fear of burning the motor out.

In fact the guys from Healthstart who make the Compact Food Processor - the one we use every morning.. guarantee the motor for life.

So is this an ad for a juicer?.. Yes .. it is .. its an ad for the best juicer I ever used. And its one way of helping to save your life.
"Save your life:" she says?
No - no-one can save your life.. not for ever.. but life can certainly be well worth living if we keep ourselves bright and energetic. and Juicing with the Compact Juicer is a great way to go - try it.. you will be very happy you did!!

Now there is no(w) time

feel the freedom of the no(w) time. If there is not tomorrow, no later on, no next year.. but just now - imagine for a moment the feeling of that. Doesn't it feel like freedom.
What is there to worry about, to do besides what is yours to do right here and right now. That can of course be cooking the dinner - it might be writing that email, writing that book. It's all now time.

No time left to waste being worried about later. No time left to waste being worried about money. Who is to say that means doing nothing? No.. it is not about doing nothing and not taking care .. it is about being present at all times. Being here. Caring, taking care, being grateful in this moemnt.

It is No(w) time.

The End of Time

Linear time is over.. there is no more linear time.

The only time is in fact - Now - what the prophets have been citing for years.. has come to pass. There is no time.

Even the kids today tell you time is going really fast.. well guess what .. it just went so fast that it stopped having any meaning in our lives.
It is now .. it is now, it is now...
there is nothing else and until we simply accept this fact we may have the choice of continuing to race against an ever tightening clock.. with ever more to do - or let go.

Relaxing into the state of time end.. creates a freedom that liberates us from constant stress. - yes sure you have lots to do- .. but time is elastic now.. and you can just focus on what is under your nose and get that done and then by relaxing further into the broadest vision you can muster, you will simply see the whole and then the next thing under your nose will slot right in to your life.

The Difference

I was fortunate to be invited to a really interesting and heartfelt presentation today.
There were four meetings held over two days here in Perth; approx 2 hours of interactive and interesting review of the possibilites and opportunites provided by co-creating in a group of like minded people intent on discovering the value of working together on a collaborative film called "The Difference."
The brain child of an inspiration given to Jacqueline (probably by herself of course. being the more evolved facet of Jacqueline's being.. ) The Difference promises to do just that. Create a difference.

J's concepts and vision is structured in a format that has strong alignment with the format of XL Results Foundation.

She talked of "Sieve Shakers" those that could filter through the inspired contributions of the people working on this project. Those sieve shakers would glean the most inspriational ideas, saying or evolvements .. and would hand them up to the core making the movie. The other group she spoke of were the writers.. those who created the words to go with it all. There would be a similar shaking to bring a tincture of the essential value and a means to cause difference here on our earth.

Jacqueline told a very heartful story -
she told us of one who wrote her an email asking "how is it possible that you, who have no experience are planning to make a film, I have 30 years experience in the industry." ... and she continued .. "it was unreasonable to think of doing that..

unreasonable..?? of course because it was of the heart..
the heart is never reasonable.
Think of the heart of the Sufi.. the Whirling Dervishes - mad with the unreasonableness of the heart.

The Ultimate Aim of A Charity

"Is continuous growth the hallmark of a successful charity? No, it’s just the opposite – the ultimate aim of a charity is to be extinct."

Paul Dunn has brought this to our attention.. a quote from Doing Good Well: What Does (and Does Not) Make Sense in the Nonprofit World by Willie Cheng

What an obviously beautiful statement. Of course charity should not eventuate in big business.. although big business must be involved in charity otherwise where is its heart?
But for a charity to have any other aim but to be put 'out of business' is a completely erroneous goal.
Let us all steer for charity to become a thing of the past and world wide wealth a reality.

Fractal Time - Gregg Braden

Reading Fractal Time: The Secret of 2012 and a New World Age" by Gregg Braden.

It gives an overview of how time cycles and repeats itself throughout the history of our world Bringing together some incredible world prophecies from the Vedic traditions, to the Mayan Calendar to the Hopi Indians - Gregg Braden helps me realise that the current world situation is by far bigger and more profound that most of what is being discussed in the media today.

The threat of the dreaded hyped up swine flu, the environmental changes, the weather patterns, the global economic fear crisis - all can be tracked and in some way predicted by viewing the cycles and the patterns in the long term history of our planet.

Check his book out.. it will give you a sense of the profound nature of what we are currently going through - and are likely to experience in the very near future.. the buidup to December 21st, 2012 is already here. We are here because we chose to be here in this incredible time - let us not miss it for want of opening our eyes and seeing what is really important in our lives right now.

You might also like to check out the Global Coherence Project - a project aimed at creating a world experience of centering our energy in our heart - perhaps this can create the shift we need to bring us through this incredible time in our history to the other side of the drama - to begin a new time on our planet.

Advantages of the Recession!

Hey how about this... looks like there is some advantages to this 'global economic crisis' people are consuming less.. that sounds like this is good for the planet don't you think!!?

FOURTEEN months ago, former King County Executive Ron Sims made an odd statement. People were wondering if the economy was in a recession. Sims said he thought it was, because the volume of garbage was down, and that meant people were buying fewer new things — and throwing away fewer old things.

well there is always a bright side isn't there!

Medical Errors - Still prevalent!

In 1999 there was a damning report in relation to the number of medical errors leasing to deaths in the USA - (and dont think that Australia has any immunity to this) - and today it is still plaguing the medical industry. Little has been done to curb it. and over the year more than 100,000 people are dying from this plague. And we are worried about swine flu!!!!

The Shocking Truth About Cancer Tests

This is a worthy article.. from a very mainstream publication - The Readers Digest - I personally haven't had a mammogram for years and I have no intention of doing so.. this is my personal opinion and my body - maybe you will not agree with that. But its thermography for me - totally non invasive and gives a pretty good indicator if there is anything suspect going on.

In fact thermography is now being used by the US army in places like Afghanistan to check blood flow to damaged limbs and they say it is saving lives. It saves lives in many ways.
for more info on that you can check out this website.

That's it for today.

The Starfish Story - and Best Health is moving!

Best Health is moving and tonight as I sat at the computer for a moment to take a break from the seemingly endless packing .. the Maverick Spirit came into my inbox and Wayne told this story..

Once upon a time, there was a wise man who used to go to the ocean to do his writing. He had a habit of walking on the beach before he began his work.

One day, as he was walking along the shore, he looked down the beach and saw a human figure moving like a dancer. He smiled to himself at the thought of someone who would dance to the day, and so, he walked faster to catch up.

As he got closer, he noticed that the figure was that of a young man, and that what he was doing was not dancing at all. The young man was reaching down to the shore, picking up small objects, and throwing them into the ocean.

He came closer still and called out "Good morning! May I ask what it is that you are doing?"

The young man paused, looked up, and replied "Throwing starfish into the ocean."

"I must ask, then, why are you throwing starfish into the ocean?" asked the somewhat startled wise man.

To this, the young man replied, "The sun is up and the tide is going out. If I don't throw them in, they'll die."

Upon hearing this, the wise man commented, "But, young man, do you not realize that there are miles and miles of beach and there are starfish all along every mile? You can't possibly make a difference!"

At this, the young man bent down, picked up yet another starfish, and threw it into the ocean. As it met the water, he said, "It made a difference for that one."

This is how I wish to live my life in every day...
Wayne tells some good ones and his final comment was..
So, can I encourage you to take the time to do something that will make difference to someone else's life... and it doesn't have to be much and they don't need to know. Just take a moment, do something special... the universe will know and that's enough
... it is worth signing up for his regular Maverick Spirit Newsletter.
You can do it here.

Oh and by the way.. Best Health is now at 8 Hopgood Street, Melville, WA 6156 and our new phone number is 08 9330 2087. We plan on continuing to give our wholeheartedness to bring optimum health to all who visit.

Rumi - my favourite poet...

How does
a part of the world
leave the world?

How does wetness
leave water?

Dont' try to put out fire
by throwing on more fire!

Don't wash a wound
with blood.

No matter how fast you run,
your shadow keeps up.

Sometimes it's in front!

Only full overhead sun
diminishes your shadow.

But that shadow
has been serving you.

What hurts you,
blesses you.

is your candle.

Your boundaries
are your quest.

I could explain this,
but it will break
the glass cover
on your heart,
and there's no fixing that.

You must have
shadow and light source

and lay your head
under the tree of awe.

When from that tree
feathers and wings
sprout on you,
be quieter than a dove.

Don't even open your mouth
for even a coo.

Grilled Peaches from Heaven

This is not a food blog!! BUT.. you should just try these fantastic grilled peaches.. I made them last January.. and here I am again.. white peaches in season and looking for a dessert that will just blow our taste buds Check them out.. we had them with Tasmanian cream.. YUM.

I am having friends.. well Sylvia Marina actually - my wonderful colleague who I went to the states with in December to do John Childers Speaking Training and her husband David over for dinner tomorrow night.. so white peaches with balsamic it is.

Look out for Sylvia and I in collaboration on the Speaker Circuit very soon. We will be presenting Celebrating Change Events.

My First YouTube Video

Finally I made it.. with the help of some very good friends - Sylvia Marina and her husband David who did the videoing.
I have been on the track for some time now, and having just uploaded the video I feel totally proud of myself! silly .. but you know how it is when you actually accomplish something thht you have been wanting to do for a while? Well its done.

A YouTube broadcast about how to help yourself to rid yourself of the scourge of Candida infection - or overgrowth - that nasty fungal infection that just can cause havoc of many types in your body. Bloating, indigestion, tendency to insomnia, rashes, hormonal imbalance, mood swings, you name it.. candida can be the underlying culprit to this myriad of symptoms. Do me a favour, check out my first YouTube! and if this is by chance a problem you are experiencing then go to our Best Health website and consider doing our very effective program.

It will help you to have a clear head, better digestion, good sleep patterns and generally improved sense of well being in a fairly short space of time. and if you think it is helpful give me arating! Thank you. and good health to you all.

Even in the Gourmet Traveller!!

I currently subscribe to the Gourmet Traveller. It is a luscious mag, filled with recipes that you can occasionally cook for special guests, and dreams of far off places that usually you would need a very good bank balance to contemplate going to.

But this month something really caught my eye. There was an article called the End of the World.. and it is about Iceland.

According to the writer, AA Gill, Iceland is having a particuarly bad time economically. However here in the glossy mag came the following statement:
"We are left with our lives" someone said to me. "All the other stuff, the poisonous foreign stuff, the stuff that makes us jealous, and empty, is being taken away and, like children when the toys have to go back in the box, we're feeling sorry for ourselves a little. But now we'll fish and cure mutton and make skyr (cheese)."

We have much to learn from this statement.. its about getting back to the basics, getting back to community, getting back to connection with our neighbours and finding what is real again in our lives without all the glitter and "imported poisons".

It is interesting when such statements are published in luxury magazines - mainstream is being to understand the importance of slow and close to home.
