Inside and outside at the HoBB, I strive to grow projects through good experiences. I happily jump into areas of work with a positive sense of fun and balance.
In the surrounding fields, I regularly roll up my sleeves, feel the grit under my finger nails and can sometimes get blown off my feet by a strong Souwesterley gust.
Through each year, volunteers and friends arrive at the HoBB to help projects along.
Inside the farmhouse we use our grey cells to think positively, build health for ourselves and friends, and stay on our feet – facing up to those mind-blowing experiences that ‘living’ can summon up from all four points of the compass at times.
Online too, in this digital computer environment, there are galloping trojan horses trying to blow computers off their footings and designer worms and viruses out to stop progress if they can. Trolls and bullies are no longer hiding under bridges waiting for strangers to pass, they are now actively employed by business and political groups to find, scare, shame and damage the well-being of others. This makes the going tough for many. This slows down the progress of many more. This halts the progress of some. This negative energy sometimes causes the death of lively spirits.
Maintaining a healthy life ‘system’
The full health ‘system’ includes the physical, emotional, social and spiritual well-being of self. It also includes your environment which covers those around you in your environment. Ideally, everyone would be able to maintain a healthy life but to do this, each individual would need total control over themselves and every influence around them. That’s a rare thing.
For full radiant health, all round, we spend time focusing on the well-being of loved-ones, friends globally, no matter how we communicate with them, whether by deed, in person, by email or through thought.
The main driving health force here is ‘Positive Health’ which is associated with the positive attitude we try to keep towards everything in life – this is not easy at all times! As I like the idea of enjoying all life, I continually work at learning how to withstand all that life throws and I have worked with a lot of good friends sorting out which facets of life to catch and which to drop. But it’s often a tough task to work it out without good friends around! A good group of friends means a good pool of experiences that you can tap into when needed.
In a perfect sense this means absence of disease, ailment and disability and the energy to accomplish daily works and active leisure without undue fatigue. We keep mid-term ailments at bay but we occasionally fail to keep away short term hiccups – who doesn’t – some ailments catch up with us but generally we eat well and avoid people who sneeze, so, please wait till after your flu before visiting us at HoBB .. thank you.
Some say that if you can face most daily challenges and social interactions without undue mental, emotional, or behavioural upset then you are cold, a control freak or well-balanced [ I think the ‘well balanced’ title is kinder]. There are some things that should hit hard as they are important and you are cold if you don’t let them penetrate and hit you where it hurts.
Generally, most things at the HoBB are well-stomached but in reality we plan it in part. We say things like ‘no smoking‘ and ‘no children‘ at the HoBB because we try to control the physical environment we live inside. However, online, we can be far more open. For example, I can chat online to someone who has a highly infectious disease for hours without side effects. That’s not quite true because there’s one terrific side effect and that’s the increased well-being of the person with the disease who may find it impossible to get out socially and mix.
Global social health needs to be positively grown. As another example, I might have a very useful bulletin board conversation with someone about web design that I would not dream of having if I knew of some of their prejudices.
By doing this, I may step outside my regular social environment and get to know the views and thoughts of those I would never approach normally. The distinct differences between Peoples will be eroded by regular global communications. We all realise that languages are being forced into fusion through global business and politics so one day, we will all be a bit closer to one another or maybe ‘as one’ with each other. At this moment however, I am here and you are distinctly ‘there’. Hello. (I smile)
This is a wide open subject for debate but it’s closing in. I think that everyone feels that Spiritual health comes when you experience your own peace of mind and realise your role in the experience of life.
I have a good friend in the UK who occasionally pops across to the HoBB to do some meditation and Qi gong and he would most probably add that spiritual health is when your behaviour is in tune with your spiritual essence and you are in communication with your inner-self. He works hard to help very many individuals simply find and tune in to their inner-self and if you are out of tune in any way, let me know and I’ll send you his contact details.
The western world specializes in creating within its population, ‘lifestyle anxiety’. It’s a stress factor that we are taught to accept by constant commercial message bombardment. The condition of being contented, healthy, and successful has been hijacked by those industries that wish to define it for us in their way and in favour of their goods.
This drives the big machine of commerce and manufactures the World we are getting. We are all contributing to it by accepting it and buying into it.
Maybe one remote Amazon Tribe will avoid this modern way for a few more months but as the tidal wave of progress (?) sweeps through every Earth habitat we will all be swamped. At the HoBB we are realists and we accept progress but we have no time for those who are causing an unbalanced future.
This web site of ours allows us to extend and share our reality and provides many international opportunities to explore scale and visual impact and the practical uses of sharing. We hope you enjoy its pages and contribute to its positive energies.
We always want to offer something different and put forward our perspectives on practically everything. ‘Onto a web site‘ for us is simply ‘into a melting pot‘ in the hope that a mote of this stuff might be of use in some way. But you will never understand anything by merely reading about it, that’s why every science course includes experiments, and every consciousness liberating movement demands practice of yoga, meditations, confrontation techniques, etc., in which ideas are tested in the laboratory of your own nervous system. Let’s keep testing each other and see how much friendship, good progress and positive energy we can create on this home planet.
I hope you will enjoy exploring this ‘HoBB site’ as it grows with the knowledge that we are busy developing The HoBB Project House and Gardens for those that want to go that extra mile. If that’s you at any time, drop us a line.
