“A human being is part of a whole, called by us the Universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings, as something separated from the rest a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circles of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.” Albert Einstein

What do we know?  The earth is round and has people living on it.  The borders and boundaries are artificially created. Maps of the world have different colours to represent borders; however up in the sky you don’t see them.  Borders are created to separate us from each other.  We are connected to this planet as a whole and for all the life on it. We fight over land and natural resources when it is not ours to have but only to share.  Nature moves from one continent to another via plane, wind or personal flight and have no view about what’s right or wrong or borders to cross.

It means even on the lower levels of life, there is a profound consciousness or awareness that bonds all things together.


We have energy which comes from the food we eat, the thoughts we carry, the oxygen we breathe, and an energy flow that comes about because of our general health.  Energy blocks may occur if we hold onto tension or conflict.  For example if we are angry with something or fearful, we create disharmony within. The energy of anger and fear manifests in the muscles and tissues of our body.  This means harmony, peace, desire and love can’t get through.  It gets shut out.  If this continues our bodies begin to experience anxiety and depression. 

Ever noticed that when we wake up in the morning, we begin our day with self-talk. (Lots of chitter chatter). We continually remind ourselves, how, what, when, where and why we should and shouldn’t do things.  And we give ourselves instructions on how to be successful, how to be a failure, how to greet someone and what to say.  We also reinforce our ideas about what sort of person we are, and what sort of success we deserve or don’t deserve.   If allowed, this can go on all day and every day. 


It is an embedded part of our human nature to try to ‘fix’ certain areas of our lives that aren’t going the way we would like.  We spend a great deal of time in our lives attempting to ‘fix’ things according to held beliefs, rather than looking at a situation from an alternative angle so that we may be in allowance of it. 

We like to be in control

The more control we try to exert over an undesirable situation, the more control you lose.  You have to let go of control totally to have control.  When you are able to let go of trying to ‘fix’ things, you will find you can see a situation holistically, understanding from a place of what it is rather than what you feel it should be. 

How many times have you tried to ‘fix’ your life?

For example, think about your past relationships.  Often we are aware that a relationship is not working but attempt to mitigate the situation with mantras such as, “If I just fix this, if I just fix me, if I just fix the other person, then it will work”.


In order to appreciate life to the fullest, you want to have healthy joints that are comfortable and flexible. 

Healthy, flexible joints all contribute to your enjoyment of the simpler things in life such as running, walking, getting in and out of chairs ad cars, horse riding, playing golf, chasing the grandchildren and your partner (and catching them).
