“Belief” is the key to fortune as it is to misfortune

Belief © 2005 Image of Learning all rights reserved“How can the Universe help you if you don’t tell the Universe what you want?”

Believe that you can exceed all your previous ambitions and hopes in all areas of your life, and the odds are you will.

This ‘Belief’ thing is general and secular. It is connected with the ‘Power of Intent’. It may seem strange, but those who ‘believe’, live longer and stay healthier, and this, the medics link with the benefits of ‘positive thinking’. I heard that there is a new College in Oxford (UK) started to study ‘belief’ from all angles – if anyone knows their web site address, can you let me know please. Thank you.

If the outcome of life is the result of thought then we can all sit and think-up our best tomorrows and like magic, they will all come about. But if it is about ‘belief’, then just ‘thinking’ about it won’t work as the element of faith, thus conviction, will not be strong enough to help us reach the goals we set.

I think therefore that ‘passion’ needs to be in the recipe to turn thought into belief. I also figure that as we are all on the same planet within the same energy state, then only a belief that works well for all, will work at all. You could believe that a meteor would land tomorrow and destroy everything here but as that is on the negative side, it is less likely to occur, for more people would believe that we could find a way to stop it or side-step it! Hmmmmm … side stepping planets … you better believe it!

Low Impact Philosophy

Recycling LI styleProgress without a care achieves no goals…

At the HoBB, we believe this with a passion. So when we offer our creativity we incorporate our understanding, depth of experience, personal nature and capacity to ‘be there’ when needed.

On the phone today, someone described the HoBB as a ‘creative boot camp’ and others have at times viewed us as an ‘attack’ rather than a ‘Retreat’. It’s certainly true that the couch here rarely gets used and the get-up-and-go aspect of the HoBB dominates.

However, progress takes a lot more than heading off in the direction ahead regardless of the consequences. The World’s gradually waking up to the reality of being over-used in a poor quality manner and hopefully a far fresher era of low impact progress will develop over this century.

At the HoBB, we love to re-cycle and the word ‘waste’ is never applied to materials for everything has its worth. All goods produced are ‘of the Earth and formed from the fixed and finite family of materials on the Earth. We live as part of one delicate recycling process and we must wise-up if we are to remain a healthy part of that process.

I’m only one person in a World of problems, what can I do?

Essentially, keep going and try to get the rest of the World ‘on-side’. Practically, whilst there is no full directory of ‘low impact’ goods, you can look out for the ‘Fair Trade’ sticker on your purchases. You can buy goods that are less ‘processed’ and more ‘local’. You can support people who will repair goods and find new uses for unwanted goods. You can start a ‘Transition Group’.

Share the recycling information you find and the ideas that you have to promote and secure low impact growth. Never give up on a vital thing, for with the internet you can reach the World and keep it changing. Post your thoughts on message boards, newsgroups, guest books and on a section of your own web page. Show the World how you are working to create an ever healthier tomorrow.

I know in some parts of the World, and in some families, it is less easy to think about building a better tomorrow but all of us must try as the World needs everyone to look after it and care for it.

We all live on the same planet no matter which corner our home stands upon. We share the Air, the Water and the Sun. and we all depend upon them no matter where we come from.
