The Benefits of Connecting to Nature - Gary Cook #22

May 14, 2022

Gary Cook provides a fascinating insight into the world of plants and how they enrich our spiritual, emotional, mental and physical wellbeing. He extends Aristotle’s counsel to look deep into nature to find the answers – advising us to  ‘listen deeply to nature in order to hear the symphony of sounds that sustain harmony and health for people and the planet. Hear how his curiosity to explore the hidden realms enabled him to discover  the intangible secrets of the plant world that revealed the wisdom of the natural world and ways to build a rapport with nature.

On Children – Kahlil Gibran

Your children are not your children.
They are the sons and daughters of Life’s longing for itself.

They come through you but not from you,
And though they are with you yet they belong not to you.

You may give them your love but not your thoughts,
For they have their own thoughts.
You may house their bodies but not their souls,

For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
You may strive to be like them, but seek not to make them like you.
For life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday.
You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth.
The archer sees the mark upon the path of the infinite, and He bends you with His might that His arrows may go swift and far.
Let your bending in the archer’s hand be for gladness;
For even as He loves the arrow that flies, so He loves also the bow that is stable.

The Tao of Pooh and the Te of Piglet

https://www.bookdepository.com/The-Tao-of-Pooh---The-Te-of-Piglet/9781405293778

Extract about enjoying the process from ‘The Tao of Pooh and the Ti of Piglet’

“What do you like doing best in the world, Pooh?”

“Well, said Pooh, what I like best …” – and then he had to stop and think because although eating honey was a very good thing to do, there was a moment just before you began to eat it which was better than when you were, but he didn’t know what it was called.

The honey doesn’t taste so good once it is being eaten: the goal doesn’t mean so much once it’s reached, the reward is not so rewarding once it has been given. If we add up all the rewards in our lives we won’t have very much. But – if we add up the spaces between the rewards, we’ll come up with quite a bit. And if we add up the rewards and the spaces, then we’ll have everything – every minute of the time that we spent. What if we could enjoy it?

It doesn’t mean that the goals we have don’t count. They do, mostly because they cause us to go through the process and it’s the process that makes us wise, happy or whatever. If we do things in the wrong sort of way, it makes us miserable, angry, confused and things like that. The goal has to be right for us and it has to be beneficial in order to ensure a beneficial process. But aside from that, it’s really the process that’s important. Enjoyment of the process is the secret that erases the myths of the Great Reward and saving time.

What could we call that moment before we begin to eat the honey: Some would call it anticipation, but we think it’s more than that. We would call it awareness. It’s when we become happy and realise it - if only for an instant. By enjoying the process, we can stretch that awareness out so that it’s no longer only a moment, but covers the whole thing.

Spike Milligan ‘Smile’ poem:

Smiling is infectious, you catch it like the flu,

When someone smiled at me today, I started smiling too.

I passed around the corner and someone saw my grin.

When he smiled I realised I'd passed it on to him.

I thought about that smile, then I realised its worth.

A single smile, just like mine could travel round the earth.

So, if you feel a smile begin, don't leave it undetected.

Let's start an epidemic quick, and get the world infected!

A Social Solution to Food Waste – Gareth Hughes #17

A Social Solution to Food Waste – Gareth Hughes #17

April 8, 2022

Aotearoa Food Rescue Alliance (AFRA) have flipped a national environmental food waste problem into a social solution that nourishes millions countrywide.

In this episode I talk to ex Green Party MP Gareth Hughes about his life before, during and after politics and the phenomenal network of caring Kiwis who’ve contributed to the remarkable impact AFRA have made during its first year by redirecting over 7.5 million kilogrammes of food to create 29 million meals.

Feel free to be the truest version of yourself - Franko Heke #11

February 24, 2022

Musician and founder of the NZ Spirit Festival, Franko Heke shares how he's transitioned from feeling like a misfit, grappling with suicidal thoughts and carrying the burden of societal labels into becoming a man who feels liberated because he's learned to love and respect himself. His story will undoubtedly help you find the strength and courage to let go of the idea of who you think you should be so you can be proud of who you really are and take a stand for what you believe in – which ultimately needs to be yourself.
