Sweep It Clean, Inside & Out.

FOR A MOMENT, let’s imagine what it would be like to be fully alive without a physical shell or any of the stuff we need and desire for maintaining life on Earth. We’d have a mental energy that allowed us to move forward or backward, up or down, instantly creating whatever we desired. We’d be free to wallow in an exquisite existence without time or space as we know it. We’d be in a state of pure bliss, in love with everything and everyone. We’d have no duties or bills to tend to, no fear of losing anything, no one judging us, no possessions to insure, no demands on our time, and no goals to achieve.

What we’re envisioning is actually the world of Spirit, which we experienced before we came here and will return to when we shed our body (or as William Butler Yeats poetically called it, our “tattered coat upon a stick”).

Inspiration is a state of being here now in this material world, while at the same time reconnecting to our spiritual origins. In order to be receptive to inspiration, we need to eliminate the ego clutter that accumulates all too easily for most of us—after all, if we’re preoccupied with events and activities that have nothing to do with inspiration, we’re unlikely to notice its summons. So in order to achieve a reunion with our ultimate calling, we need to emulate the clear, uncomplicated world of Spirit.

This doesn’t mean that we should sit around doing nothing, awaiting Spirit’s arrival; instead, it means having faith that our spiritual connection flourishes in a life dedicated to joy, love, and peace. If our daily activities are so overwhelming that we don’t make these things our priority, then we’re disregarding the value of living a simple life.

MY 12-STEP PROGRAM TO SIMPLICITY

Here are 12 very specific tools for simplifying your life. Begin using them today if you’re serious about hearing that ultimate call to inspiration.

Unclutter your life. You’ll feel a real rush of inspiration when you clear out stuff that’s no longer useful in your life:

If you haven’t worn it in the past year or two, recycle it for others to use. Get rid of old files that take up space and are seldom, if ever, needed. Donate unused toys, tools, books, bicycles, and dishes to a charitable organization.
Get rid of anything that keeps you mired in acquisitions that contribute to a cluttered life. In the words of Socrates, “He is nearest to God who needs the fewest things.” So the less you need to insure, protect, dust, reorganize, and move, the closer you’ll be to hearing inspiration’s call.

Clear your calendar of unwanted and unnecessary activities and obligations. If you’re unavailable for Spirit, you’re unlikely to know the glow of inspiration. God will indeed work with you and send you the guidance—and the people—you need, but if you’re grossly overscheduled, you’re going to miss these life-altering gifts. So practice saying no to excessive demands and don’t feel guilty about injecting a dose of leisure time into your daily routine.

Be sure to keep your free time free. Be on the lookout for invitations to functions that may keep you on top of society’s pyramid, but which inhibit your access to joyful inspiration. If cocktail parties, social get-togethers, fund-raising events, or even drinking-and-gossiping gatherings with friends aren’t really how you want to spend your free time, then don’t. Begin declining invitations that don’t activate feelings of inspiration.

I find that an evening spent reading or writing letters, watching a movie with a loved one, having dinner with my children, or even exercising alone is far more inspiring than getting dressed to attend a function often filled with small talk. I’ve learned to be unavailable for such events without apologizing, and consequently have more inspired moments freed up.

Take time for meditation and yoga. Give yourself at least 20 minutes a day to sit quietly and make conscious contact with God. I’ve written an entire book on this subject called Getting in the Gap, so I won’t belabor it here. I will say that I’ve received thousands of messages from people all over the world, who have expressed their appreciation for learning how to simplify their life by taking the time to meditate.

I also encourage you to find a yoga center near you and begin a regular practice. The rewards are so powerful: You’ll feel healthier, less stressed, and inspired by what you’ll be able to do with and for your body in a very short time.

Return to the simplicity of nature. There’s nothing more awe inspiring than nature itself. The fantasy to return to a less tumultuous life almost always involves living in the splendor of the mountains, the forests, or the tundra; on an island; near the ocean; or beside a lake. These are universal urges, since nature is created by the same Source as we are, and we’re made up of the same chemicals as all of nature (we’re stardust, remember?).

Your urge to simplify and feel inspired is fueled by the desire to be your natural self—that is, your nature self. So give yourself permission to get away to trek or camp in the woods; swim in a river, lake, or ocean; sit by an open fire; ride horseback through trails; or ski down a mountain slope. This doesn’t have to mean long, planned vacations that are months away—no matter where you live, you’re only a few hours or even moments away from a park, campground, or trail that will allow you to enjoy a feeling of being connected to the entire Universe.

Put distance between you and your critics. Choose to align yourself with people who are like-minded in their search for simplified inspiration. Give those who find fault or who are confrontational a silent blessing and remove yourself from their energy as quickly as possible. Your life is simplified enormously when you don’t have to defend yourself to anyone, and when you receive support rather than criticism. You don’t have to endure the criticism with anything other than a polite thank-you and a promise to consider what’s been said—anything else is a state of conflict that erases the possibility of your feeling inspired. You never need to defend yourself or your desires to anyone, as those inner feelings are Spirit speaking to you. Those thoughts are sacred, so don’t ever let anyone trample on them.

Take some time for your health. Consider that the number one health problem in America seems to be obesity. How can you feel inspired and live in simplicity if you’re gorging on excessive amounts of food and eliminating the exercise that the body craves? Recall that your body is a sacred temple where you reside for this lifetime, so make some time every single day for exercising it. Even if you can only manage a walk around the block, just do it. Similarly, keep the words portion control uppermost in your consciousness—your stomach is the size of your fist, not a wheelbarrow! Respect your sacred temple and simplify your life by being an exerciser and a sensible eater. I promise that you’ll feel inspired if you act on this today!

Play, play, play! You’ll simplify your life and feel inspired if you learn to play rather than work your way through life. I love to be around kids because they inspire me with their laughter and frivolity. In fact, if I’ve heard it once, I’ve heard it a thousand times: “Wayne, you’ve never grown up—you’re always playing.” I take great pride in this! I play onstage when I speak, and I’m playing now as I write.

Many years ago I was given a tremendous opportunity to appear on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson. The man who took a chance on me, booking me even though I was an unknown at the time, was a talent coordinator named Howard Papush. It was my first big break, and I went on to appear on The Tonight Show 36 additional times. Now it’s my turn to say thank you to Howard. He’s written a wonderful book titled When’s Recess? Playing Your Way Through the Stresses of Life, which I encourage you to read. (Howard also conducts workshops that teach people how to play and have fun in life.) In the book, Howard shares this great quote from Richard Bach: “You are led through your lifetime by the inner learning creature, the playful spiritual being that is your real self.” I couldn’t agree more—by all means, get back in touch with your real, playful self, and take every opportunity to play! Notice how it makes everything so sweet, and so simple.

Slow down. One of Gandhi’s most illuminating observations reminds us that “there is more to life than increasing its speed.” This is great advice for simplifying your life—in fact, slow everything way down for a few moments right here and now. Slowly read these words. Slow your breathing down so that you’re aware of each inhalation and exhalation…

When you’re in your car, downshift and relax. Slow down your speech, your inner thoughts, and the frantic pace of everything you do. Take more time to hear others. Notice your inclination to interrupt and get the conversation over with, and then choose to listen instead. Stop to enjoy the stars on a clear night and the cloud formations on a crisp day. Sit down in a mall and just observe how everyone seems in a hurry to get nowhere.

By slowing down, you’ll simplify and rejoin the perfect pace at which creation works. Imagine trying to hurry nature up by tugging at an emerging tomato plant—you’re as natural as that plant, so let yourself be at peace with the perfection of nature’s plan.

Do everything you can to eschew debt. Remember that you’re attempting to simplify your life here, so you don’t need to purchase more of what will complicate and clutter your life. If you can’t afford it, let it go until you can. By going into debt, you’ll just add layers of anxiety onto your life. That anxiety will then take you away from your peace, which is where you are when you’re in-Spirit. When you have to work extra hard to pay off debts, the present moments of your life are less enjoyable; consequently, you’re further away from the joy and peace that are the trademarks of inspiration. You’re far better off to have less and enjoy the days of your life than to take on debt and invite stress and anxiety where peace and tranquility could have reigned. And remember that the money you have in your possession is nothing but energy—so refuse to plug in to an energy system that’s not even there.

Forget about the cash value. I try not to think about money too frequently because it’s been my observation that people who do so tend to think about almost nothing else. So do what your heart tells you will bring you joy, rather than determining whether it will be cost-effective. If you’d really enjoy that whale-watching trip, for instance, make the decision to do so—don’t deny yourself the pleasures of life because of some monetary detail. Don’t base your purchases on getting a discount, and don’t rob yourself of a simple joy because you didn’t get a break on the price. You can afford a happy, fulfilling life, and if you’re busy right now thinking that I have some nerve telling you this because of your bleak financial picture, then you have your own barrier of resistance.

Make an attempt to free yourself from placing a price tag on everything you have and do—after all, in the world of Spirit, there are no price tags. Don’t make money the guiding principle for what you have or do; rather, simplify your life and return to Spirit by finding the inherent value in everything. A dollar does not determine worth, even though you live in a world that attempts to convince you otherwise.

Remember your spirit. When life tends to get overly complex, too fast, too cluttered, too deadline oriented, or too type A for you, stop and remember your own spirit. You’re headed for inspiration, a simple, peaceful place where you’re in harmony with the perfect timing of all creation. Go there in your mind, and stop frequently to remember what you really want.

A man who personified success at the highest intellectual and social levels would hardly seem one to quote on simplifying our life, yet here’s what Albert Einstein offers us on this subject: “Possessions, outward success, publicity, luxury—to me these have always been contemptible. I believe that a simple and unassuming manner of life is best for everyone, best both for the body and the mind.”

Wow! I’d say this is pretty good advice, wouldn’t you?

Expression of interest

I am ready to give up everything in my life. I have this haze this cloud covering my head.

Everything I want and hoped for is given to me with so many conditions that I just don’t want it anymore.

Fight for what you love. Stand up for yourself. Do what’s make you happy. You have to think for yourself. You have to consider other people feelings.

Everything I have, I have to fight tooth and nail for. I am so sick of fighting. I am so tired over this current situation.

Do what make you happy? Well at the moment I am not happy with lot of things. Everywhere I turn every decision I make I seem to hit an obstacle. My head hurts, my body aches, I am not ok.

It’s pissing me off right now to have such a negative outlook on life at the moment. I don’t even want to go to Europe anymore.

All I can think about is sneaking away somewhere and never return. Burn everything and not have anything that has my name my belonging… I was never born.

This weather is depressing me, every time I plan something to go away or to do something, it just seem to be an impossible task.  

This dream I have to go to Europe get all tied up with the sale of the house and my own emotional bullshit.

I feel like a drifted wood that is currently going through a ragging current, bashing onto rocks chipping away chucks at a time to soon be nothing left unless someone can help provide some kind of stability for me. No one could. I know this too shalt pass.

I do know there has been lots of a positive in my life. But if I don’t write this, and express how I feel right now, right at this very moment! I will burst!!

Sell Everything!!!

Sell everything!!!!  This serve to be a lot harder than one thinks. How long will I be going for? Where am I going? I don’t have enough money to just give everything away but if I don’t sell everything by December 16th 2013 I will have to do that. I do not want to have attachment anymore to things, well not while I am on this self discovery. I have moved here from Sydney to Perth in 2002 with just a back pack so of cause I can do that again.

Image

All the things I always wanted gone. Just like that? Everyone say why make such a drastic move, life is not that hard you just have to work harder to pay off your debt.

Well that’s the problem with the Australian dreams… we simply consume too much food and buy too many things that clutter our homes and ultimately trap us into thinking it make us happy. Don’t worry about your health it’s only going to be another 20 years of hard work then we can have a break and drive around Australia in our very own “Caravan”.. Ha? What? Is this what I want for me and my FAMILY?Image

Hell nO

Of cause I want to travel around Australia but I want to do it now not when I’m 60.

I want to live now; I want to be with my loved ones as much as I can while I am still young and alive. As for money, We seem to forget that we do not need that much money to survive and everything that is meaningful to our loved ones is hugs kisses and complements even when all we have to eat is noodles and toast we are happy.

Image

What happens to all of my things that I have left? Storage? What happened if I do find a home overseas and never want to return? Then what? What happens with the children how do I bring them with me when their fathers refused to let me take them with me?

 Tayla said to me “don’t worry mum ill sort dad out”. How nice my children all encouraging me to go and live my life except for Jet he is too young to understand right now and I will miss him more than anything in this world.  No matter what I still feel that this is the right thing to do.

Image

What about my business? What about my boyfriend? What are his plans? What and how are we going to do with ourselves? And the answer lies in “MONEY” we need money, how much? Well depends on where what how long we are going to stay in any country.

All I know for sure is that I will leave Australia on the 16th December 2013.

That reminds me I have to start taking French lesson if i am serious bout speaking French in France.

 

Aside

To get away someday.

Image

That is it i have been saving coins from all over the glob hoping to get away someday. That some-day has now got a date.

paris

Flights booked to Paris leaving Perth 16 December 2013. I wonder who will come and greet me?

“Buy that god dam tickets already!”…. so i did. I knew that some how there will be a sign for me to go, like…….. a one way ticket from Perth to Paris for $572 sh** yea!!

“NO” turning back now, I have burnt my bridges  until this travel is done!

I want a white Christmas… I want to go to Paris and snow board on Mont Blanc !!!!! Well god dam it girl, be careful what you ask for because you might just get it.

Ops! too late.

Everything I have wished for I have received. The truth is,  “The Power” was the Audio book that made me believe in the law of manifestation.

But some times it doesn’t hurt to read a bit of astrology to get a bit of hint from the universe 🙂

This is a lot like me:

You feel yourself to be a natural leader.  You are always looking for the spot at the head of the company or the class.  You are unconcerned with whether or not others follow you on your various crusades and campaigns.  Your basic nature is independent and instantaneously self-expressive.  You are good at sizing up a situation quickly.

Notice the BOLD text? LOL

Also this too..

Dear Thyda,

This Thursday and Friday, the stars bestow two shining days of fun and romance upon you!Although Mercury is already happily flitting away its time in social Leo, it gets an exciting boost on August 15 when it tips its hat to innovative Uranus. When the wittiest planet joins forces with the most rebellious one, you can be sure that mischief will reign! You’ll enjoy lots of fun with friends and co-workers, but this will also be a time full of flashes of inspiration, as well as solutions rising out of nowhere.

You won’t want to waste a moment on boredom, so make sure you surround yourself with stimulating activities and people.The next day, August 16, sees romantic Venus swoop into its own sign of Libra, where it will enjoy a month of peace and love. Libra adores partnerships of all kinds, so this is an ideal time to foster romance, friendship, and even professional relationships. Libra also appreciates refinement and avoids confrontation, so with Venus on hand, all these traits will be magnified in your own life. Take advantage of this time to smooth over any rough patches you may have in your interactions with loved ones!

All in all I say go out there take some risk, because with out it you can never know how many amazing secret gardens you could have rolled in ? To discover new plants and smell the sweet, sweet flowers that embrace your sense … go  there , it is waiting, It is waiting for you to “live”.

Image

P.S Dear universe I would like to drive a Yellow Porch across Europe please 🙂

Just start right now. Don’t worry about if you are taking the correct steps. Just take a step.

ImageJust start right now. Don’t worry about if you are taking the correct steps. Just take a step.

These are the words that I took to heart, and now in the process of the ultimate change. I have now found a new home for my collections of medicinal plants and my 3 chickens to a farm that will take care of them for me until my return, when ever that is.

The house is ready to be photograph, especially with the help of Andrew Barry Davies with the gardens and my friend who helped out with the garage sales and sorting all of my Sh**.

Image

I’ve learned-

that even when you think you have no more to give, when a friend cries out to you, you will find the strength to help.

 

Karma has came back to me in a good way this time round.

The truth is I wanted to say how wonderful the chance to move and start again is but its not.

Not when I stared at all the things that I have collected over the years piled up in boxes in the garage and no room to move I just looked and I looked at it and then just  keep staring at it with a blank and confused look on my face.

Where dose one start? The things that was so important to me before just look like an obstacle path, what was I thinking buying all of these objects and trinkets that was oh so valuable ?

My beautiful new friends just looked at me and said we are here to help how can we help? At first it felt uncomfortable to have someone else go through my things, in which I felt fully “naked” exposed with all of my good and mainly bad bits to show for.

That is it! it’s too late I have nothing else to hide.

My whole life exposed in one weekend, but it was so liberating to say goodbye to the things I hold on to, I know now that things do hold you back from moving forward with life, especially Image living to your fullest potential because all we do is go to work to buy these things, to work even harder to buy a bigger home to accommodate all of the things that you have bought and soon you don’t have time to see your children  your partner and let alone to take care of one self who you really need the most to live.

I have now cried for my loss over a bottle of wine sleeping on top of my Pool table writing part of this article.

Its nearly over now I feel a sense of freedom in my life for the first time.

RnR

Image

Everyday I am surprised. My life has changed so much in just one year. I am honored and gratefull to have met so many friends in either the outdoors group, Couch surfing, Melting pot and my new found love of Dodge ball 🙂

Tonight I am ready for a new and exciting surprise as Julien Goalabré and I go back to the farm for a bit of RnR that is much needed due to preparing the house for sale and the growth of Aromatherapycleaning.com.au in just the past 4 weeks.

I leave you all my friends with these messages:

Each time we start to get attached to those unwanted thoughts, take a deep breath in and out consciously knowing that we are changing our reality to experience life in the “NOW” then we can go back feeling empowered knowing we have unplugged anything that no longer serves our soul.Image
