  • Re: Sports Teams

    In even more exciting news, it appears we may be winning my favourite Aussie Rules football team as a client at work.

    I'll be analysing a lot of their training and match day data if so.

    Might give me an edge in the footy tips =)

    In even better news, the mighty Toon will be back in the Premier League next year!

    Howay the Lads!

    Hey, if you're always either happy or balanced, you're doing something right!

    Does anyone ever experience this little voice in their head when they are trying to be mindful of what they are doing and live in the moment. I appreciate being in the 'now' and completely understand it's relationship to happiness and that it's an important component to end my suffering but when I do it, I have this little voice in my head that tries to resist being in the 'now'. It's almost as if it's afraid that I will forget something important and drop the ball somewhere. Does anyone else experience this?

    Yes I do.

    I have started to keep a diary each day and one of the headings is:

    What do I HAVE to do today?

    The less I write in there the better!

    I have found it a good way to simplify my life so I can spend more time in the present.

  • Re: Buddhism, vanity and sexual conduct?

    Marriage is hard. Both men and women will look (hopefully not touch!) elsewhere at different stages.

    From a male perspective, we're bombarded with images of sexy women wearing not much from morning to night. On television, the internet, advertising posters etc.

    Whether you like it or not, we're affected by it.

    I don't really have any advice. In my current situation (recently separated), I am cynical about marriage i.e it goes against our nature to be with just one person for ten, twenty, thirty, forty years. Why should we fight that?

    Anyway, I hope you guys can sort things out. Good luck!
