The thing about change is that it's so incredibly difficult to do! When we're threatened with change we all default to our False Self and the stories we tell about who we pretend to be. Underneath - where we typically feel most vulnerable - is the True Self. How can any of us uncover the essence of who we really are and deal with the changes we face on a daily basis?! It takes time and a supportive coach/therapist/mentor.

After successfully completing the 9 Km Blackmores Bridge Run yesterday it occurred to me that we are all running the race of our lives. Each of us having a separate running experience and yet contributing to the collective spectacle of the human race.We start and finish. But the race continues.

An historic transition in Australian political history today! I watched each of the independents give their speeches to the media about who they were prepared to back to form a minority government. Bob Katter sided with the Coalition but both Tony Windsor and Rob Oakshot supported Labor. What struck me was the thoughtful way in which each outlined their reasoning. There was a measure of wisdom rarely seen in politicians! I particularly liked the way Rob Oakshot referred to the "going home to my children" test of his decision. Never has the articulation of what makes a wise decision been more evident in political discourse than today!
What did you think about independents day?
