Wherever You Are, Be There
by Jim Rohn
One of the major reasons why we fail to find happiness or to create unique lifestyle is because we have not yet mastered the art of being.
While we are home our thoughts are still absorbed with solving the challenges we face at the office. And when we are at the office we find ourselves worrying about problems at home. We go through the day without really listening to what others are saying to us. We may be hearing the words, but we aren't absorbing the message. As we go through the day we find ourselves focusing on past experiences or future possibilities.
We are so involved in yesterday and tomorrow that we never even notice that today is slipping by. We go through the day rather than getting something from the day.
We are everywhere at any given moment in time except living in that moment in time.
Lifestyle is learning to be wherever you are. It is developing a unique focus on the current moment, and drawing from it all of the substance and wealth of experience and emotions that it has to offer.
Lifestyle is taking time to watch a sunset. Lifestyle is listening to silence. Lifestyle is capturing each moment so that it becomes a new part of what we are and of what we are in the process of becoming. Lifestyle is not something we do; it is something we experience. And until we learn to be there, we will never master the art of living well.

1. WHAT CONSTITUTES A GOOD LIFE? by Jim Rohn
The ultimate expression of life is not a paycheck. The
ultimate expression of life is not a Mercedes. The ultimate
expression of life is not a million dollars or a bank
account or a home. Here's the ultimate expression of life in
my opinion, and that is living a good life. Here's what we
must ask constantly, "What for me would be a good life?" And
you have to keep going over and over the list. A list
including areas such as spirituality, economics, health,
relationships and recreation. What would constitute a good
life? I've got a short list.
1) Number one, productivity. You won't be happy if you
don't produce. The game of life is not rest. We must rest,
but only long enough to gather strength to get back to
productivity. What's the reason for the seasons and the
seeds, the soil and the sunshine, the rain and the miracle
of life? It's to see what you can do with it. To try your
hand, other people have tried their hand; here's what they
did. You try your hand to see what you can do. So part of
life is productivity.
2) Next are good friends. Friendship is probably the
greatest support system in the world. Don't deny yourself
the time to develop this support system. Nothing can match
it. It's extraordinary in its benefit. Friends are those
wonderful people who know all about you and still like you.
A few years ago I lost one of my dearest friends. He died at
age 53 - heart attack. David is gone, but he was one of my
very special friends. I used to say of David that if I was
stuck in a foreign jail somewhere accused unduly and if they
would allow me one phone call, I would call David. Why? He
would come and get me. That's a friend. Somebody who would
come and get you. Now we've all got casual friends. And if
you called them they would say, "Hey, if you get back, call
me we'll have a party." So you've got to have both, real
friends and casual friends.
3) Next on the list of a good life is your culture. Your
language, your music, the ceremonies, the traditions, the
dress. All of that is so vitally important that you must
keep it alive. In fact it is the uniqueness of all of us
that when blended together brings vitality, energy, power,
influence, uniqueness and rightness to the world.
4) Next is your spirituality. It helps to form the
foundation of the family that builds the nation. And make
sure you study, practice and teach. Don't be careless about
the spiritual part of your nature, it's what makes us who we
are, different from animal, dogs, cats, birds and mice.
5) Next - here's what my parents taught me. Don't miss
anything. Don't miss the game. Don't miss the performance,
don't miss the movie, don't miss the show, don't miss the
dance. Go to everything you possible can. Buy a ticket to
everything you possibly can. Go see everything and
experience all you possibly can. This has served me so well
to this day. Just before my father died at age 93 if you
were to call him at 10:30 or 11:00 at night, he wouldn't be
home. He was at the rodeo, he was watching the kids play
softball, he was listening to the concert, he was at church,
he was somewhere every night.
Live a vital life. Here's one of the reasons why. If you
live well, you will earn well. If you live well it will show
in your face, it will show in the texture of your voice.
There will be something unique and magical about you if you
live well. It will infuse not only your personal life but
also your business life. And it will give you a vitality
nothing else can give.
6) Next are your family and the inner circle. Invest in
them and they'll invest in you. Inspire them and they'll
inspire you. With your inner circle take care of the
details. When my father was still alive, I used to call him
when I traveled. He'd have breakfast most every morning with
the farmers. Little place called The Decoy Inn out in the
country where we lived in Southwest Idaho. So Papa would go
there and have breakfast and I'd call him just to give him a
special day. Now if I was in Israel, I'd have to get up in
the middle of the night, but it only took five minutes, ten
minutes. So I'd call Papa and they'd bring him the phone.
I'd say, "Papa I'm in Israel." He'd say, "Israel!" Son, how
are things in Israel?" He'd talk real loud so everybody
could hear - my son's calling me from Israel. I'd say, "Papa
last night they gave me a reception on the rooftop
underneath the stars overlooking the
Mediterranean." He'd say, "Son, a reception on the rooftop
underneath the stars overlooking the Mediterranean." Now
everybody knows the story. It only took 5 - 10 minutes, but
what a special day for my father, age 93.
If a father walks out of the house and he can still feel his
daughter's kiss on his face all day, he's a powerful man. If
a husband walks out of the house and he can still feel the
imprint of his wife's arms around his body he's invincible
all day. It's the special stuff with the inner circle that
makes you strong and powerful and influential. So don't miss
that opportunity. Here's the greatest value. The prophet
said, "There are many virtues and values, but here's the
greatest, one person caring for another." There is no
greater value than love. Better to live in a tent on the
beach with someone you love than to live in a mansion by
yourself. One person caring for another, that's one of
life's greatest expressions.
So make sure in your busy day to remember the true purpose
and the reasons you do what you do. May you truly live the
kind of life that will bring the fruit and rewards that you

Advice from Sri Sri Ravi Shanka
The Past is history, The future is a mystery, The present is ....a gift.
The Purpose of Life
Our first and foremost commitment is to do service in the world. If there is fear in your life, it is because of a lack of commitment. If there is confusion in your life, it is because of lack of commitment. The very thought, 'I am here in this world to do service', dissolves the "I" and when the "I" dissolves, worries dissolve. Sevice is not something you do out of convenience or for pleasure. The ultimate purpose of life is to be of service. An uncommitted mind is miserable. A committed mind may experience rough weather but will reap the fruits of its toil. When you make service your sole purpose in life, it eliminates fear and brings focus and purposefulness in your mind, action and long term joy -- and maybe short term problems!
When do you appreciate someone? When they do something that is unusual,not ordinary, and not their nature. Isn't it so? For example, when a wicked person doesn't create a problem then you appreciate them. Or, when somebody you think is not good does a good act, then you appreciate them. Also, when a good person does something extraordinary, then you appreciate them. If a child made you a cup of tea, you would appreciate it, but if a mother made the same cup of tea, you would not likely appreciate it because it is a normal act for her. In the same way, you appreciate getting a ride from someone you don't know, but you don't necessarily appreciate it from a bus driver. In all these cases, those acts are temporary, out of character, or not their nature. So when you appreciate someone for something, you imply that it is not the way they are usually.
Robin : What if a person wants to be appreciated?
Sri Sri : That means that it is not in their nature, and that is why they want to be appreciated. If it is not coming from their nature it is an imposed act. So when you appreciate someone you simply imply that it is not their nature, it is not the way they usually are. It is a rare act or quality.
Appreciation implies a sense of separateness or distance, so watch out when you appreciate someone!
Do It Till You Become It !
Virtues have to be practised till they become your nature. Friendliness, compassion and meditation should continue as practices till you realise that they are your very nature. The flaw in doing something as an act is that you look for a result. When it is done as your nature, you are not attached to the result and you continue doing it. An action that arises from your nature is neither tiring nor frustrating. For example, daily routines like brushing one's teeth or bathing are not even considered actions because they are so integrated into one's life. You do all this without doership. When Seva is made part of your nature, it happens without doership.
Question: When do you realise that compassion, meditation and Seva are your nature?
Answer: When you cannot be without it. Wise men continue the practices just to set an example, even though for them, there is no need for any practices.
Rest and Activity
Activity and rest are two vital aspects of life. To find a balance in them is a skill in itself. When to have what and how much to have is wisdom. Finding them in each other-activity in rest and rest in activity-is the ultimate freedom. More tiring than the work itself is the memory of hard work. Thinking you have worked hard itself interferes with the quality of rest. Some people take pride in working hard without any results. And there are others who crave for long rest not knowing the rest is in non-doership. It is the quality of rest, even if it is short, that recuperates. When rest is needed, your body will automatically take it. Resting, without thinking about the need for it, is more restful. Desirelessness, Dispassion, and Samadhi are the deepest rest.
Question : Our work is very stressful. We don't get enough time for the family. What do we do?
Answer : Do you spend quality time with your family? Even if you spend half an hour are you cordial and fully attentive to the needs of your family? It is not the length of time you spend with your family matters. What matters is the quality of time that you spend with them.
Thinking you need rest makes you
Thinking you have to work hard makes you tired
Thinking you have worked hard brings self-pity.
--Sri Sri Ravi Shankar
10 TIPS FOR A HEALTHY LIFESTYLE
1 Choose a reasonably vigorous exercise programme you love and stick with it regularly. Every study of ageing shows that the more active you are, the less likely you are to die from all causes, including heart attacks and cancer. Twenty minutes of low-impact, weight-bearing exercise three to four times a week is best for your bones. This can include walking, rebounding, cycling, using a Stairmaster or low impact aerobics. Staying trim with a lean body mass is also linked with lower overall mortality. Exercise has also been shown to keep your mind sharp and improve mental health, and help avoid depression (WDDTY vol 9 no 1).
2 Try not to settle for anything less than challenging work or an activity that you love-that makes your 'heart sing" as US naturopaths Judyth and Robert Ullman put it - and do it with gusto. Again, studies indicate that people at peace with their lives and life's work live longer than those who are warring with their world or don't keep their minds active (WDDTY vol 9 no 1).
3 Try to be of service to others, on or off the job. The Ullmans recently wrote that they consider loving and being of service to others the highest priority. (Townsend Letter for Doctors and Patients, July 1997).
4 Reduce the number of poisons you put in your body. Smoking, drinking, salty processed foods, all have indesputable detrimental effects on your health and your life. Caffeine and tannin are perhaps the main culprits in benign breast disease, and are also linked with joint problems.
5 Make your home a sanctuary and refuge. Fill your environment only with objects, friends and family and animals that are supportive. Dr William Rea suggests that, if at all possible, live with some land around you, even in the form of a small town garden. (If possible, also live detached from your neighbours, so that you don't take on their EMFs and other pollutants.) If this is not possible, be sure to spend time in nature as much as you can. Many clinical ecologists like Dr Rea find that patients have too low levels of oxygen-the effect of living in a polluted, congested, urban world.
6 Be connected with others and yourself. Only half of all heart disease is called by a sedentary lifestyle and high-fat diet. The other half appears to be caused by isolation-from other people and our own feelings. A Finnish study has shown that those who were lonely and isolated socially were two to three times more likely to die from heart disease and other causes than those who felt connected to others. Conversely, studies of populations show that social networks and social support protect people against heart disease-regardless of whether they smoke or suffer from high blood pressure (Am J Epidemiol, 1983; 117: 384-96). Making friends, expressing your feelings-even owning a pet could prove a lifesaver (PROOF! vol 1 no 1).
7 Cultivate some sort of spiritual connection-whether with a god or a less directed religious entity. Copious evidence shows that prayer actually has positive effect upon the body, whether you are the one doing the praying or are being prayed for (PROOF! vol 1 no 1). A study of centenarians found that faith in God was one common element to which they attributed their longevity (WDDTY vol 9 no 1).
48 Engage in regular relaxation techniques, particularly those which calm the mind as well as the body. The latest evidence shows that techniques like yoga, Transcendental Meditation and other disciplines likely to put you in touch with your own spirituality, in addition to providing relaxation, work better than stress management and other techniques which solely concentrate on relaxing the body (PROOF! vol 1 no 1).
9 Don't hold grudges-cultivate a sense of forgiveness, of your enemies, your family, your parents. Most importantly, forgive and love yourself. Get rid of unfinished emotional business in your life. Again the evidence shows that psychological and emotional health is an important predictor of longevity (WDDTY vol 9 no 1).
10 Take responsibility for your own health. Taking responsibility for every decision in your health care means that you are less likely to be a victim of your doctor's decision. You also derive the psychological benefit of staying in charge-again, an important predictor of mental and physical health (WDDTY, the book). Lynne McTaggart

The Four Empties
Thus the ancient Taoist adage advises, 'those who strive for longevity should maintain the "Four Empties"'. The Four Empties are useful guidelines in the Tao Cultivating Life, providing daily reminders of the utility of emptiness in all aspects of life:
What one does not think about is far more useful than the speculative chatter with which one usually fills the mind. Wisdom never arises from idle fantasy and discursive thought, but rather from direct intuitive perception of truth, which can only occur when the mind is still and empty of thought. The reason meditation is so important in Eastern mystical traditions is that meditation is the most effective way to experience the primordial purity and power of emptiness, even if for only a few moments, and because emptiness of mind must be carried into ordinary activity as well; otherwise it remains a mere mental exercise.
This is a reminder that gluttony paves a quick path to the grave and impedes progress on the path of self-cultivation. The human tendency to over-eat has been further aggravated today by supermarkets, fast food, convenience food shops, home delivery and mass advertising campaigns. Nothing on earth pollutes the body more swiftly than to overstuff the stomach with a haphazard combination of denatured foods that can only be partially digested and whose putrefied by-products linger and stagnate in the digestive tract for weeks, months and years, polluting the blood by osmosis and producing a chronic state of acidosis and toxaemia.
On the other hand, leaving the stomach completely empty, as in the period of abstinence from food (bi-gu) practised by Chi-gung adepts, is by far the best way to detoxify the system, purify the blood and alkalize the tissues and bodily fluids. Eat only when hungry, but do not eat only to fill an empty stomach. From a viewpoint of chi-gun practice and empty stomach is far more useful for energy work than a full one.
A good way to maintain an empty stomach is to keep an empty kitchen. Storing large quantities of food in the kitchen, not only promotes over-eating, it also allows food to get stale and grow mould. The less food you keep in the kitchen, the more careful you tend to be about eating, and the more often you must go out to purchase fresh food.
Today, wtih deep freezers and microwave ovens, some people don't go shopping more than once a month, subsisting entirely on pre-cooked, industrially processed frozen foods heated up by mocrowaves. Anyone who wishes to fully benefit from regular practice of chi-gung (or any other similar discipline) would be well advised to consume only fresh foods in moderate quantities and to banish all pre-cooked and artificially processed foods from the kitchen. If you are simply too lazy to properly prepare fresh food at home, then go out and eat in restaurants that serve wholesome health food. Cost need not be a consideration here, because if you follow the 'empty stomach' guideline and cut down the quantity while elevating the quality of food you consume, then you need not spend much money dining out.
Walk into any disco on any night in any city in the world and you will experience the utter antithesis of 'empty room'. Ear piercing music reverberates in the smoky, air conditioned air, while flashing lights, lasers and strobes bombard the eyes and flood the brain with a constant barrage of sensory distraction that precludes every moment of emptiness from arising in the mind.
The same chaotic cacophony and visual clutter prevail in department stores shopping malls, offices and private homes.
As discussed earlier (on qi-gong page), the internal microcosm of the human system reflects the prevailing energy conditions of the external macrocosm, and whatever external energies we expose ourselves to imprint their patterns on our internal energies.
Thus the more clutter and chaos we perceive in our immediate environment, the more chaotic and cluttered become our minds and energies.There's not much you can do to simplify and harmonize the prevailing energies in public places, but you can certainly control your own private living space.
Zen gardens and room decor in Japan are designed to still and empty the mind. Though spartan in appearnace, an empty room is pregnant with potential insight and energy; when the human mind perceives such a room and tunes itself into the prevailing emptiness, all sorts of energy and awareness will spontaneously begin to stir, suffusing the mind with the sort of primordial power and awareness that can only arise from emptiness.
Chi-gung and other Taoist health regimes are founded on the potential power and awareness that arise from emptiness. Moreover the principle of emptiness manifests itself in many other subtle ways in the Tao of Cultivating Life, such as in the superiority of restraint over aggresion, silence over noise, not-doing over doing, stillness over speed, abstinence over indulgence, and so forth.
It is the human attachment to material form that creates so much greed and illusion in life and drives people to value gain over spiritual virtue, only to realize at the moment of death that 'you can't take it with you'. Awareness, however, is an eternal asset that follows you from life to life, so whatever spiritual insights you aquire in this life become permanent dividends of everlasting value. To gain such valuable insight, one must cultivate an implicit understanding and appreciation of the power of emptiness. Cultivating the Four Empties in daily life teaches us to recognize the value and practical utility of emptiness and familiarizes us with the terrain of spiritual immortality.
Basically living consciously means just that - Living consciously, mindful and alert - moment to moment, detached from ego fear and desires (such as greed, jelousy, envy, selfishness).
Primarily focused on the inner peace & stillness within, while operating in a world of change and movement without. One is aware of the options, but chooses to align with The Way - The Flow of Life / Nature / God.
As opposed to being primarily focused on ego desires and fears, as most of us are - Moving from one desire & expectation to another - Unconsciously choosing to fall prey to bad habits, fears and selfish craving - instead choose peace, kindness & respect.
Greed is the pollution of the world. However pious remarks and an 'holier than thou' attitude does n't help either.
Wisdom is Knowledge in action. True Knowledge is intuitive knowledge. Silent Knowledge is intention.
Develop awareness of intuition by calming your mind and emotions -turning inwards - practise regular meditation, prayer and silence/ solitude.
Theory and knowledge is useless on in the world without action. Method & Wisdom go hand in hand.
So take a few deep breaths, have a 'Creative Pause', (gap between two breaths) and let the inspiration flow in. Then use your rational mind to form a plan, and use your body to act your will out. We are are mixture of Mind-Body-Spirit
Being whole means being integrated, balanced and acting in moderation of all things. Being balanced means seeing things from many different perspectives.
The ideal lifestyle is based on principles, natural laws, virtues, and inherent goodness of - inner peace, harmony, respect, balance, honesty, generosity, compassion, Justice etc.
We need to start with becoming aware of ourselves - our bad habits, filters, desires, fears etc.

ART OF LIVING
Live in the present moment, alert and mindful - (this is not as easy as it seems)
The most important person is the one you are with in the moment
The best thing to do is to serve the person you are with
Purpose of life - rediscover soul and true nature through developing self and mastering self - leading to serving others
GO WITH THE FLOW of life - everyday is like a holiday
BALANCE & Moderation - Yin / Yang
SERVICE to others - "As you sow shall you reap"
VIRTUES - A good path to freedom from suffering is based on priciples of harmlessness, forgiveness, non judgement, compassion, and living in conscious awareness of moment to moment life.
critical mass needs to be reached for real society transformation. Read about the 100th monkey effect & morphogenic fields
Eco friendly, bio degradable - more recyclable energies,
eg. solar / wind / air / water powered machines
already aeroplanes that run on air power - at 7,000 mph!!
Zero Point technology
Morals - Law & crime
Look at causes of crime eg. Heroin addiction, family trouble
based on principles & natural laws of life
Many people have said Prisons have transformed their life - due to self realisation and realizing God. Solitude and distance from worldly good brings us closer to our true nature.
Once Karma and meditation are properly understood, explained and applied -
and people understand and experience, with conscious awareness, alertness, mindfullness,
'as you sow, shall you reap', and 'our thoughts and actions create our reality'
crime will drastically reduce.
Once awareness rises, sins naturally drop, and virtues naturally arise - due to self regulation,social and environmental feedback
Real education is about learning to deal with problems
mental, emotional, physical, spiritual - see rudolfsteinercollege.org - developing awareness, compassion, acceptance, non judgement, less if any competition
emerson college -
BUSINESS & INDUSTRY
based on service to others, not materialstic, individualistic, not competitive - but based on synergy
Order - balance
Efficiency - through going with the flow, mindfully aware and alert
Ethical business - no pain to others or society -
Environmentally friendly - less pollution, no carcinogenic chemicals
Ideal day - work 4 hours per day, 6 days per week
see business page
MONEY & BANKING
- credits will replace money, credits earned for labour, money distributed equally among communes
In the mean time use Tridos or other ethical banks & investors
- Social Democracy - based on respect for all - equality in ability to express oneself - everyone accepted
The collective consciousness will be recognised - so naturally people will be more mindful
enlightened politicians, not egotistical, not swayed by fame or power
Innovations in Democracy
Innovations in Democracy aims to make available hundreds of innovative practices, ideas, experiments, organizations and references useful for building wiser democracies that work for all. "Wiser democracies" are systems of politics and governance, of citizenship and activism, which creatively engage more of our human capacities -- not only to better address today's pressing social and environmental problems, but to help us build more desirable futures for all the generations and ourselves after us. As we build wise democracies, all the good things people
