'Writing - the path to self-discovery'
A book of activities to help you develop your thinking skills whilst improving your reading and writing.
Robert L. Fielding
Your ‘five fruit and veg’ of mental wellbeing
1. Connect with people around you: with family and friends, colleagues and neighbours.
Think of these as cornerstones in your life and invest in them.
2. Be active - go for a walk or a run, step outside, cycle, play a game, garden,
discover something you enjoy and that suits your level of fitness.
3. Take notice - be curious, catch sight of the beautiful, savour the moment, whether you are
walking to work, eating lunch or talking to friends.
4. Keep learning - try something new, rediscover an old interest, take on a different
responsibility at work. Learning new things will make you more confident as well as being fun.
5. Give - do something nice for a friend or a stranger, thank someone, smile, volunteer your time,
look out as well as in, create connections with people around you.
The greatest achievement is selflessness.
The greatest worth is self-mastery.
The greatest quality is seeking to serve others.
The greatest precept is continual awareness.
The greatest medicine is the emptiness of everything.
The greatest action is not conforming with the worlds ways.
The greatest magic is transmuting the passions.
The greatest generosity is non-attachment.
The greatest goodness is a peaceful mind.
The greatest patience is humility.
The greatest effort is not concerned with results.
The greatest meditation is a mind that lets go.
The greatest wisdom is seeing through appearances.

“Nothing is so dangerous to the progress of the human
mind than to assume that our views of science are ultimate,
that there are no mysteries in nature, that our triumphs are complete and
that there are no new worlds to conquer.”

“The world is in dire need of change – the difficult way is to achieve change so that everyone benefits - a way in which nobody suffers – a way in which nobody is left behind. If change does not come in this way, it is not real change.”

" OUR LAND OUR LIFE "
'We don't own the land, the land owns us'
'The Land is my mother, my mother is the land'
'Land is the starting point to where it all began. It is like picking up a piece of dirt and saying this is where I started and this is where I will go'
'The land is our food, our culture, our spirit and identity'
'We don't have boundaries like fences, as farmers do. We have spiritual connections'
"A story is told eye to eye, mind to mind, and heart to heart."

'Upon this gifted age, in its dark colour,
Rains from the sky a meteoric shower
Of facts …they lie unquestioned, uncombined.
Wisdom enough to leech us of our ill
Is daily spun; but there exists no loom
To weave it into fabric.'
Is writing the loom to weave our wisdom into fabric?
