Moving you forward one step at a time


From inception to departure we are creating our C.D. AND NOT ONLY THAT we also determine how, where, when, to what extent, to whom, at what rate the contents of that C.D. is shared

It is our C.D. player and it is our C.D. being played …

So player, myself included, isn’t it well to consider the vast control that are within your reach, just consider each time you make a decision that is another part of your C.D. being recorded. Each time you make a decision it registers to the C.D. player as PLAY, FAST FORWARD or REWIND …

Play IS THAT steady flow of beautiful self-made music that flows and progresses and then moves easily into another song (phase/aspect of life)

Fast Forward is that racing that occurs when something has thrown us off balance and so there are moves that threaten to throw us off-course … Might be necessary then to take deep breathes and regain composure and appreciation for the wisdom of keeping a steady PLAY-flow

Rewind is when despite the pull of what might develop if we were to steadily work on our C.D. we return to the songs or a specific song that has gone before and delve into it … This might be one of those things that might work for better or for worse … what is remains in the hands of the player 

So as  we mossy on along do remember that it’s your C.D. and all yours to decide how you will C.reate D.estiny!!!!


For the love of what if we all recall

How our actions impact us all

We might work to forget what another has done

But forgetting is not truly possible for the brain is hard-wired to provide re-runs

And even if the events are not remembered exactly 

The felt experience is easy to source within the body

So for the love of please appreciate that 

when this figure is turned to lie flat,

It is the  sign of infinity which suggests something that goes on and on … 

So for the love of 

Think before you act for the impact of actions taken can be forgiven yet the impact of its easy recall is not  as easy to re-tract

So for the love of 8

Feel before you speak of how your words long after being spoken might play like a broken record in someone’s mind and disrupt a relationship that might have otherwise been quite fine

So for the love of 8

Experience thoroughly in your mind’s eye the impact of the choice you might make because of a THOUGHT that might not even be based on the facts … don’t let your THOUGHTS cause you to do something that other people for their lifetime might have to not so much as live but ‘bear’ through

For the love of 8

I do hope the idea behind this KarryOn Blog is one we all might appreciate!  

Earlier this week I was introduced to the meaning of the word copy-writing and later this week the issue of copy-righting was brought forward. Have heard much on this discussion and appreciate the need, the necessity of persons, entities protecting content. Yet have heard an interesting slant on the said discussion  about information availability and freedom of speech and the technicality of how a few tweaks here and there can make what was originally someone else’s content yours… For myself I believe … KarryOn supports and is guided by ethical operations hence any content that is not original is noted as such … yet to each his own 

These discussions though have led to some interesting concepts, questions, ideas … firstly, can anyone ever really copy-right your information … the thing is no one no matter how hard they try can do something exactly like you, even if they are very similar … so might a copy-right check for the copy-cat first and foremost be you being so full of yourself, so full of your essence, that someone who really is following, supporting, endorsing, seeking your services or products, is able to pick up quickly that while it looks, sounds, tastes, feels, provides a similar experience that there is still that ‘something’ that they cannot quite put a finger on that is missing, and then make a decision to look into it further and hopefully return right back to the original 

Secondly, for those who are tempted to infringe upon copy-right Laws … Might it be well to consider that you have deprived yourself of the RIGHT to: 

Create  content that is unique to you … that shows your take, your approach, your slant, you have infringed upon your right to basically be yourself and are operating from ‘borrowing an aspect of another’s self’  as it were

100% Original

Operate ethically and at some point it will in some way ‘eat’ at you

Always Eat Well

Purposeful living … which really comes from knowing you are providing something to the World that you can genuinely feel good about

A Place for All  

YOURSELF … AND who can really be copying-right when they are depriving themselves of themselves?  

The concept of the ‘ex’ is one that has made for many a memorable movie and popular pop songs … 

The reality of the ‘ex’ has led to difficulties in many a relationship … 

'Ex' marks many things but could a 'new' relationship really be one of those things?
‘Ex’ marks many things but could a ‘new’ relationship really be one of those things?

Interestingly how we seem to take this concept of the ‘ex’ and accept it as the reality of what an ‘ex’ really is … 

The Oxford English Dictionary defines ‘ex’ as not including  or former a prefix meaning out … yet in many a movie or song or life in general the ‘ex’ is associated with the one who is very much included and is not ‘let go’ or ‘will not let go’ …. And of course  it begs the question of ‘Is this a true ‘ex’?

It would seem that many a time what passes for anex’ in a relationship, is simply a relationship triad, where either the supposed ‘ex’  continues along with the supposed newcomer either by the insistence of the ‘ex’ or the person who is mutual to both the ‘ex’ and the newcomer … And just to be clear there is no remote attempt at judgement here either way … but just a commentary on a very popular common relationship phenomenon …. And in case you might be wondering how this even came up … 

There is a song that has really caught my attention of late and it is not just the skill of the singer but the feel of the song and the words being sung … it is the peaceful resolve that is evident … the absence of bitterness … the acceptance of the past … the unspoken working through of the pain of disappointment in a love relationship … in other words it was the evident picture in this song of the rarely seen TRUE ‘EX’:

The term coach is brought to mind when we reflect on the Olympics or consider the Sporting Arena. 

Just as the sportsman and sportswoman benefits from working with their coach for desired results, as we journey through life we have certain desires in different arenas of our life: romantic life; financial life; social life; work life et. al. … and this is where your Life Coach comes into play.

Your Life COACH helps you to develop these different arenas of your life as you would like them to be, identifying areas where you want to reach your desired goals, and collaborating through an equal partnership to discover and develop these arenas and so create the life you desire now. 

In fact “Life Coaching is a powerful human relationship in which professionally trained coaches support persons to create their desired future.” Coaching might prove Therapeutic but It is not therapy! 

Coaching And Meaning

Some things are therapeutic which is simply to say some things have a good effect on the body and/or mind

Of course, the word therapeutic originated from the word therapy which is essentially associated with the field of psychology and so all who are under this umbrella be they psychologists counsellors social workers et al.  are referred to as therapists it is only by further discussion that one becomes aware of the persons specifics.

And so it is that there are as many professional therapies as there are things that have been proven to have a good effect on the body or mind:

 Art Therapy; Creative Arts TherapyDrama Therapy; Massage Therapy; Psychological Therapy; Reiki Therapy; Spa Therapy  ….

And so it is too that over time we discover our own ‘personal therapies’ those things that we have proven over time to have a good effect on our body and/or mind:

Dancing; Exercise; Fishing; Jogging; Listening to Music; Quiet-Time; Walking;

And so after all is said and done we all at some point in time might well sing some of the words of a popular song …  “Like Breathe in (Breathe in)

Let it go (Shout it out)

Take deep breathes and real slow, calm down.

Close my eyes (soft spoke)

Ease my mind (take control)” … as we benefit from what can best be described as Simply Therapeutic 

And what is one of the basic lessons that might be discovered when considering the Olympics?


Patient in that it shows the benefits of focusing on the PROCESS.

No matter what the particular sporting area of the athlete, he/she over the years had to train which would have meant following the guidance of their coach, making changes to their techniques, and keeping on with this and other actions, appreciating that it is all toward achieving their desired result in the years to come. Had they gotten tired and felt it was taking to long to get the technique …. or that the Games were so far off that they could slack off … they would have become irritated, frustrated, impatient and lost focus. This would have happened because their focus would have switched from process to product/outcome. So one might recognize here that patient focus on the PROCESS has the potential to yield exceptional results.

A compliment to being patient in the PROCESS is the focus on PROGRESS.

The athlete who medal-ed or broke their personal and/or other records or who peaked at the Olympics, is the same athlete who would have been gradually developing their skills during the years of training before advancing to perform as they did during the Olympics, in other words the athlete was focused on PROGRESS.

The matter of pursuit no doubt was done with PURPOSE.


Patient Pursuit of ACT-ions create Transformation!

If someone where to tell you that they noticed a little nagging problem physically or were noting some bodily changes that you thought would best be treated by a medical doctor, what would you tell them or encourage them to do?  Would I be wrong to guess that most of us would encourage them to visit their doctor?  

If thing s go well, then their doctor would recommend some course of action, maybe to reduce certain foods/habits and/or increase other foods/habits, along with some sort of medication to take short, medium or long-term. And how would you feel knowing you contributed to this persons health and well-being? Would  I be wrong to guess that most of us would be pleased and/or relieved?

It is a fact that a psychiatrist is a medical doctor who has specialized and is now able to prescribe medication to take short, medium or long-term to treat with biological changes that impact a persons mental and emotional life. Could anyone then explain, how logical can it then be, to deduce that if someone has seen, is recommended to see, or is seeing a psychiatrist, how it can be considered appropriate to label that person as ‘MAD’?

Is it MAD to:

Make A Decision to address a concern that has been noted?

Make A Decision to maintain one’s healthy biological balance?

Make A Decision to do what needs to be done to live the healthiest life possible?

Make A Decision to be the best you you can possibly me?

Is it?

Think I have to say:

Kudos to those who are making a decision to maintain their healthy balance

Kudos to those who are becoming more educated and helping others to do the same

Kudos to those who maintain their regime and provide feedback so their regime can be adjusted if/when needed

Kudos to those who understand that man is a whole being and that the body mind spirit is inter-connected and so do their best to support living a holistic balanced healthy life and encourage others to do the same

Is it not wise and a grand experience to Smartly Savor Balance?

Man is wholly body mind and spirit!
Man is wholly body mind and spirit!         

Generally things in life occur on a continuum and it is a matter of the extent  and how we go about things that tend to make the difference … with that being said after the last post exploring T.I.M.E. it seems fitting that it be followed with an exploration of M.O.N.E.Y.

Relationships surround us … we have all types of relationships with people, in all types of contexts, under all types of circumstances and for different periods of time, we also have relationships with the things in our life, money included. Our relationship with money reflects what we think about money … Is it good or not? Do we feel deserving of it or not?  Are we of the opinion that it flows readily to us as we desire or not? Is there some predetermined cosmic energy that determines how much we ought to have or not? all of this and more creates our relationship with money.

But at its core … how does this M.O.N.E.Y. really come about? Maybe it might be helpful to take it step by step. Before money there was a bartering system, where persons would exchange their products with each other. As time proceeded, we developed a new means of bartering, where a currency system was created, giving varied values to notes and coins, and these were then used as the basic unit of exchange for products be it actual tactile goods or the non-tactile service. 

It stands to reason then that; Meeting Others Needs Enriches You! yes … it really is that simple! Think about it we give out notes and coins to another whenever that person has satisfied a need of some sort… this tends to hold true throughout. 

To enrich is to improve the quality or value … so each time we improve the quality or value of life for others by our goods and/or services … whoop there it is! The life of the other is En-riched and M-O-N-E-Y flows to us to also en-Rich us by opening up the opportunity for us to improve the quality or value of our lives by accessing the goods and/or services we desire … and so we have it out economic system of cash flow. .. 

But what if you undervalue the fact that you are in fact enriching others lives? what if you don’t feel deserving of having your life enriched? Guess it’s easy to appreciate then how we take ourselves out of the cycle of cash flow …

So what can we take from this … might it be that seeking money as a thing in and of itself might not support us in getting those notes and coins as we wish? Might it be that it is quite beneficial to consciously monitor our relationship with money? Might it be that the deeper we enrich others by meeting a need or the more needs of others we meet … the greater the flow of monies toward us? So what will you be taking from this? …
