So what do you know?

The globe is spinning and spinning. Will it ever Stop? Where are we stopping of today?






I thought this would be a really affirming post. A lot has been going on with my family and their own health and it has got me thinking and researching.

One big  worry of mine is that Cancer, mental illness , Eating disorders, addictions ( mental illness) and Dementia runs in the family.

Imagine from today never learning another thing.

Nada. squat. Ziltch. Zeeeeeeroh!

  1. Not how to wash your fabrics on delicate

  2. Or why you should feed your cat only dry food

  3. Understand more about global war, refugees

  4. Learn things your partner loves

With science being as advanced as it is:Imagine not bothering to find out how or if there is a  way to stop or help prevent the off set of illness?

That pink -wormy looking thing in our head is meant to be stimulated. I know! I give myself head massages when I wash my hair. My brain knows there is a bit of TLC going on and it basks in it like ( awful simile) a lion who has found  and claimed the perfect sunshine trap- belly full and fed. .


You know that saying ‘Smoking stunts your growth’ ?

Well, boredom and and lack of learning stunts our growth too.

The Balinese Hindu’s wholly acknowledge the value and gift that us humans have;

the capacity to learn.

Some of this is denied to us when we become ill for whatever reason.

There is this Goddess called Saraswati– who knows the secret of learning and knowledge and creativity. Every  6 months the Balinese Hindu’s pay homage to her .


They all get together to party and appreciate our unique ability to learn. Even if you are like me who has had to hit my head dozens of times before I learn.

We can do it.

We must do it.


Children and their teachers don their best outfits.They go in to learning temples or schools, surround them selves with books and  gifts of flowers and  special incense and pray for wisdom.

Ironically, these lovely people, are not usually encouraged to  read, learn  or study  on this day but that doesn’t matter because  this secret to happiness shows us there are NO boundaries to how we acquire knowledge. You don’t have to go on an enlightenment path of the soul.

Read a book – Danielle Steele , Ovid -whoever – but do it, there are loads of free on-line courses you can do or if you want check out what is going on in the community.


Learn something new.

My Nan is a huge inspiration for teaching me the power of learning. My Ma is a great teacher of making sure I always have a plan B.

Both require a commitment to learning.

SECRET TO HAPPINESS: Commitment ( there is that word again) . commit to a life always ready to learn and like a fish in a gold fish bowl – your mind will figure out a way to leap into a bigger and more expansive gold fish bowl.

It will.

You want an opportunity?

well you have one.

Its free. You are most welcome 🙂

Stumble across new interests,develop new skills, what was that you used to play the piano, flute or paint or some other innate talent you may not even know you posses?

Ask yourself: Can I think of the last time I really relished in the delight of a new discovery?

  1. Loving the lesson today too. I just gave myself a goal to read a book an hour everyday because I have been slacking in the reading books department. I learn a lot from various blogs too. Nice post.

    Liked by 1 person

  2. I agree – good post and a great topic 🙂 One thing I would have added is openness … if someone isn’t open to learning new things in the first place, they stand little chance. And challenging what we think we already know is another source for new wisdom and learning 😉
