What if the world was filled with contented happy people?
What if people truly knew how to love themselves and others?
What if we weren’t bombarded by images that resulted in dissatisfaction?
What if we weren’t compelled to buy stuff to make ourselves feel better?
What if people were truly contented with what they had and did not ‘need’ more?
What if your inner world provided you with absolute joy and you could connect to your source?
I recently flew from Thailand to London and the above thoughts stampeded about my mind because I had met some truly wonderful, inspirational and happy people in Thailand. What made it more fascinating is that they had nothing. They had given up their ‘stuff’ and their pursuit of stuff to go and truly live. At the same time I stayed at a rather nice hotel and the majority of people, who would be considered rich, walked around with faces like slapped arses. They were very busy trying to ‘out rich’ others. “oh what other exclusive resorts have you visited?” said in a posh voice as an example. To make matters more insightful, I was reading a lovely book on simplicity just as one woman turned up with about ten suitcases that had to be carried up a pontoon by an entourage. It was absolutely fascinating. It got me thinking about ‘stuff’ and all the stuff that people carry with them or think they need. Who needs ten suitcases of ‘stuff’ for a two week holiday?
While I was out in Thailand I met up with a great friend of mine. She had taken a sabbatical from work and at the age of 56 had discovered her true passion – diving. She was now training to become a dive master. This woman is an inspiration because she also trains people to fly gliders. Her usual job is in insurance and she had a moment where she thought – this is my life… I have to live it. So she took the leap and requested a six month sabbatical and what she has experienced in six months is beyond belief. In fact when I met up with her she was the happiest she had ever been and was travelling with so little. She admittedly had been a ‘stuff queen’ prior to travel. Something I realised is that those who travel the furthest carry the least because they no longer wish to carry the burden.
With all this in mind I wondered what would happen to the world economy if people were happy, satisfied and no longer needed stuff. Would it collapse or would something else take its place? At the moment I have no definitive answers to this – if you do then please comment. However, I realised that I have arrived at a point in life where stuff no longer matters. I have necessities and am grateful for those. When you reach this place the question then becomes if you are no longer chasing then how can you contribute to the world? That realisation is a beautiful thing because all that energy that had been channelled into acquiring stuff can be re-directed into creating beauty. So maybe when you no longer chase and look inside then you realise that you are a source of great potential. There is an unlimited potential to create. The external that had been focused on is beautiful; however, the inner world provides you with a vast resource of creativity, feelings and inspiration. The question is that once you have access then what will you do with it? Imagine if you radiated joy and love that was positively infectious to others. How would that change the world?

The one that is making a big impression at the moment is MONEY FARM
How do you feel about the value of your life being based on the amount of money sitting in your bank? If we are all inter-connected by money, then why do so few people pay attention to how money works? Fear and denial are perfect for generating debt and that is what the world is run on. Now imagine, if in the future, one financial institution became so powerful that it could choose to eradicate the present monetary system. Then what happens?

Come on admit it - as much as we deny it - we ladies like a good love hunt.
We have tick lists, ideals, and we hunt in high-heeled packs. Of course, we're all hunting for that elusive right man who ticks every box and even has tidy nostril hair. Okay maybe not you, but you know other ladies who love the hunt.
Well, it's time for Eva and Gracie to love hunt, and their "targets" are rich men - the golden sperm. Such exciting escapades would provide the pair with entertaining discussions during their dull office hours - or so they thought. What they did not anticipate was the discovery of the "booby man"; humorous but very hard truths about wealth, themselves, power; and the RichIdiot.com phenomenon.
The question remains: can love really be hunted?
The Love Hunt has returned. Gracie is back on the dating horse after a huge fall in her first tick-list-tastic love hunt.
Her new dating adventures take her and Eva into the depths of "the love game".
In the meantime, Eva, the ultimate Russian gold digger, has come to the conclusion that her poor "village idiot boyfriend" will never be enough. He will certainly not pay off her accumulating debts. She needs a rich man, and that means rich idiot dating.
In The Love Game, Eva and Gracie travel the journey of extreme love learning. On the way, they will discover their love and lust lists, their intrinsic issues, and experience some hilarious and jaw-dropping dates in pursuit of the wealthy ideal.
All of this in the pursuit of love.
The Love Hunt II is on!
