Why cats are so wise …

October 13th, 2012

“I have lived with several Zen masters – all of them cats.”
~ Eckhart Tolle, The Power of Now.

I often wonder, when cats are sitting quietly, bolt upright with their eyes half-closed, are they in a state of feline meditation?  Are they thinking profound cat-thoughts, or is it just there way?

The Optimist Creed

October 13th, 2012

Sun Magnificence

The Optimist Creed was written by Christian D. Larson 100 years ago in 1912. Use it as a powerful tool to become the most brilliant magnet for magnificence and joy in your life!

I Promise Myself:

To be so strong that nothing can disturb my peace of mind.

To talk health, happiness and prosperity to every person I meet.

To make all my friends feel that there is something in them.

To look at the sunny side of everything and make my optimism come true.

To think only of the best, to work only for the best, and to expect only the best.

To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as I am about my own.

To forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future.

To wear a cheerful countenance at all times and give every living creature I meet a smile.

To give so much time to the improvement of myself that I have no time to criticize others.

To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear, and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.

~ Christian D. Larson.

Joan Miro ~ Artiste Extraordinaire

September 21st, 2012

Ciphers and Constellations in Love with a Woman 1941 - by Joan Miro
I’ve always been a great admirer of the artist Joan Miro, the Spanish surrealist painter (1893-1983).

His work is an expression of the subconscious in free form. He uses brilliant colours superimposed with playful, delicate lines and abstract, amoebic shapes. His works often have a humorous quality. His backgrounds are usually neutral and rendered in a limited set of basic colours.

Earning international acclaim, his work has been interpreted as Surrealism, a sandbox for the subconscious mind, a re-creation of the childlike, and a manifestation of Catalan pride.

The solution to global warming

October 9th, 2009

Nicholas DunlopThe other night, while tuned in to the BBC World Service, I happened upon a fascinating interview with Nicholas Dunlop, co-founder of the Climate Parliament. He was saying that the answer to the climate problem would be the creation of a Renewable energy supergrid. Here is a transcript of part of the interview:

“This is a really key idea for finding our way out of the climate problem. If we share our clean energy resources, our solar and wind and hydroelectric power and geothermal and the others, over a wide area, over a whole region or a whole continent, then we can actually switch the whole world economy to clean energy much more quickly than most governments currently imagine.

The way you do this is you use high-voltage direct current cables to link up the region, and these can can transmit energy over long distances – thousands of kilometers – with very little loss of energy along the way. They work well under water. You can bury them so they are out of sight.

And what that would enable us to do is to draw essentially unlimited solar energy from the world’s deserts and dry lands, where you’ve got the sun shining all day everyday, and you can harness that energy through photovoltaic panels, but also through solar-thermal power stations which use mirrors to concentrate the sun’s heat and boil water and drive a steam turbine.

Secondly, you can make wind energy a much more reliable resource. We all know that if you are in just one location the wind comes and goes, but over a wide area the wind’s always blowing in some places, so if you harness wind over a wide area you get a very steady supply.

And thirdly, we could link everybody to the big hydro-electric dams in the mountain ranges so that we could use hydro power as back-up to solar and wind energy to enable us to get a hundred percent reliability and make it a hundred percent reliable.

In the process, many parts of the world are going to make a lot of money.  For example Scotland, which is the Saudi Arabia of wind and rain, could actually become a major exporter of wind power. Or Rajasthan and India, which has wall-to-wall sunshine year round in the Rajasthan desert, could be a solar power house for the India sub-continent, and so on …”
