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.
