In starting over you must write off all the false promises, forget all the lies you were ever told and most of all get over one’s own disappointments. To take into the future the best of what you know is also a real privilege and honor too. No experience in life is wasted. All are part of the refining.
For lots of people in the world it is a time of excitement.

KIWI SUPERFOODS DEVELOPMENT SCIENCE & GROSSING GROSS GROCERIES EXPORTS INTO AUSTRALIA SUPERMARKETS AISLES – FGC’s CHAT TO NZ EXPORTERS
According to the FGC, Australia seeks to triple food and beverage exports to some $65 billion by the year 2025. This is anticipating the world’s agricultural and manufacturing trends moving more the South Pacific’s way in supply chain needs heading towards 2025.
Australia sees New Zealand as being a part of that. It gives NZ a chance to export into Australia. Yet Australians want to back their own Aussie-made products first. So, there’s only leighway for NZ food producers to come up with products that are different to what Australians are already supplying their own people.
Specifically: “Supermarket chain Coles, one of the major two players across the Tasman, won’t stock kiwi products if they’re indistinguishable from Australian-sourced suppliers.”
What I think: This puts all of the ingenuity onto Kiwis to do the thinking of the new. It’s not as if Australia invented pasta or pizza, is it? Yet in Coles supermarket stores, if an Australian company makes it, it is suddenly Australian now? What a cheek! That’s too funny.
The question is then: If a Kiwi thinks of a new product, won’t an Australian company then make it, in time? So where is the line drawn here of FGC’s strategy.
Also, Australia is saying because NZ pays such low wages (in an age of high unemployment too – almost record highs in NZ history), is that they want to exploit NZ labour to provide their food needs. It’s very “Fee Fi Fo Fum…” in tone from Aussie. Just saying.

So, I awoke today with a really weird feeling that all Aotearoa New Zealand was is a giant panda’s food bank.
I felt really used. Sort of like a grocery cart. Or a brown paper bag, or a crinkly plastic bag (more…)

On February 22nd 2010, I featured this artwork: Colin McCahon, Victory over Death, 1970, synthetic polymer paint on canvas onto the website in California.
I also wrote the words:
“Death = anything, anyone, any system pretending to be a friend – yet that which keeps us from fulfilling our potential and realizing our dream, destiny and life. Death is fear. False Evidence Appearing Real, in the form of a bullying threat standing in the way of a better future.” (more…)

We are born perfect in to Love. Staying complete in Love is the light of Wisdom. As perfect Love casts out all fear, may true Love stay our good energy.

As sure as the sun rises above to heat the earth, Love resides beside tenacity.
The word tenacity means: The quality or state of being tenacious; as, tenacity, or retentiveness, of memory; tenacity, or persistency, of purpose. Not easily pulled apart. The quality or fact of being very determined; determination. The quality or fact of continuing to exist. Consisting of cohesiveness; the effect of attraction; – as distinguished from brittleness, fragility, mobility. The greatest longitudinal stress a substance can bear without tearing asunder. Good viscosity.
Yet where tenacity fails, Love will never fail. Love just keeps giving Love a go. As light, Love must go on to be Love. It is tenacity complete.

Riding the spur of the moment, in a life above realized chances, home is a heart of reflection in a life of never conceeding a stream of dreams.
Imagination in the tank is the light reason why dreams are alive today for example. Oxygen, our blood’s breath of lung, pumping through atmosphere of trees, through the skies, becoming breath, becoming blood, racing to the line, becoming people, becoming action, becoming nation, becoming home, painting futures of spirits bright. Our gratitude in our fortitude of providence, the gift drawn from the hidden wells of wise reflection as a special, perfect living witness… gratitude in oxygen, is set to our definitive disciplined drive, I recall.
Opportunity is always the air, realized in to a golden trail of dreams, had on wings in a running meadow’s luck of times and seasons convergence of providence.

If I say, surely the darkness shall cover me. You see as well without the light as with it, since you are not dependent upon light. Light is its own being, for the full exercise of perceptions. (more…)
Where can I go from Your Spirit? Or where can I flee from Your presence? If I ascend into heaven, You are there; If I make my bed in hell, behold, You are there. If I take the wings of the morning, And dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea, Even there Your hand shall lead me, And Your right hand shall hold me. If I say, “Surely the darkness shall fall on me,” Even the night shall be light about me; (more…)
