Learning through life

'go be productive blog' I have started this 5 day challenge and already I have experienced results. I have more focus, organisation, time, pleasure and satisfaction. Simple and effective (when you follow the plan). Even though I thought I was being productive, I can now see areas that I was wasting my resources and time (even just a little bit, collectively it adds up). Even the most skilled (at anything) can still learn something new. Well, I hope so, because to me, life is about learning new ways of being. A person actually never stops learning throughout life, there is always something new to discover. A great big adventure. So I sing the praise of Jeff Vacek and his Go Be Productive blog and 5 day challenge program.

All valuable resources come to me! For people who are looking for a great way to create income that allows time to enjoy your life, you might be interested in Liberty League Loads of people are finding that they can be successful with this work from home personal development business. I gain, something of value, everyday. I have learned a lot and continue to grow. How good is THAT! Using the Beyond Freedom program has opened up my life and I can now use many resources available, have more confidence, more direction and enjoy my life much more than I had previously. I am guessing that in your search for more money, greater opportunities, more ? of whatever you desire or you think you need, you will find an enormous amount of information and possibilities (I did). It can be overwhelming. If you want my un-asked-for advice, first just relax, enjoy, explore and then above all, believe in yourself and your ability to succeed. Everything will come to you. I enjoy Beyond Freedom and Liberty League and the 5 day challenge fits well with my direction to build a great life. I think the point of what I am trying to make is that there are many ways of 'being' in the world, choose a way that brings the results you desire. You can use all the tools available, not just one, many are complementary.

Buddhist Centre

Hi, again, two posts in one day, what's going on. I just received a call from my wonderful Buddhist nun Rinchen and talked about an idea I had to generate some income for the centre. The Khacho Yulo Ling Buddhist Centre Inc is such a wonderful place, and the people are wonderful also. Rinchen is amazing. Some time ago I got the idea of taking a cutting from the Bodi tree that is in a large pot at the centre. Buddha sat under the Bodi tree etc. So this actual tree has quite a bit of history. I want Rinchen to write up the story so that it is accurate so I will not attempt to do it now (more on that later), but rest assured this tree has some important history. So I took 3 cuttings and they all sprouted but only one lived and has now grown into a lovely plant in a pot. I think it would be wonderful to auction off the plant to raise funds to pay out the mortgage. The link above is the centre's web address and on it there is some facilities to make some donations. I think the web site could do with some maintenance and some lovely photos, so if anyone wants to donate their expertise, please contact the centre. So this is the first initial post about this project and I welcome ideas. Obviously we need a great photo of the Bodi tree, a page to make auction pledges etc and further donations. I am looking forward to seeing what can be produced from this event and how it grows from, just another one of my many ideas, to fruition, and favourable outcomes. It would be absolutely fabulous to have the mortgage paid out and build a broader community. Everyone benefits. So this is just the beginning. Stay tuned, and visit the site Regards from Jane you can contact me movement4improvement at

Doing a lot lately

Yeah, well, I have been enjoying myself a lot lately. I have attended some fun classes and feel pretty good, well more than pretty good, I feel great! I attend a African dance class 'Awakening to Spirit' which is so much fun and the spiritual connection from inner spirit is fantastic, along with the cardio exercise and the wonderful people I meet. A total fun evening. I had forgotten how good it is to giggle like a kid just having fun. Glad I know how again. I also had a supportive energy alignment which was also fabulous and Shivany was so lovely and I could tell right away that she was a multi-skilled practicioner who really knew how to assist me. Next came a session with Laughter Yoga, also a fun and lively experience. I challenge anyone to stay angry or down after attending one of these session. Laughter is magic. Moving along to a Writers Circle meeting where I met some lovely people and learned quite a bit about the experiences of a writer. A great group. There are other interesting things but too many to mention. This week I am attending a 'speakers' meeting where public speaking and presentation skills will be explored. Looking forward to that. I also attended the Andrew Griffiths 'Be Inspired' evening to promote confidence in local business and this evening was really great because it addressed the negative doom and gloom of the global financial crisis and encouraged people to be creative and look for the opportunities. Just what I have been on about for ages. This fairly high profile business entrepreneur is excited about mindset, positive attitude, opportunity and idea creation etc. just like me and a lot of other positive minded people. Great to see the doom and gloom propagandists put in their place a bit. It seems that I have regained a lot of enthusiasm in my life. The more I follow Beyond Freedom the more I enjoy my life. Sometimes I get 'distracted' and 'go off it' but then I realise how much I have gained. My life is expanding into more fun and confidence. How good is that! There is so much out there. Can't wait to see what adventure I can have today. Enjoy it all, kind regards from jane you can contact me for more info movement 4 improvement at

lawn mowing fun

Howdi everyone. I just visited a great site, 'ecosalon', (sorry still don't know how to past a short permalink) and left a comment on the blog post 'broke! 20 fun things to do....' I like this site because there is plenty of info, links and great ideas. Anyway, I enjoyed contributing my comment and so I thought I would write about it here. I haven't written for awhile, been uninspired, or is that, uninspiring, lately. But now I am firing up again and my creative juices are flowing freely. So I got to thinking about fun things to do that don't involve spending money. After going over in my head about all the things I have done that are fun I found that the most fun to I had, did not cost much or anything at all, mostly. The emphasis on money, or the lack of money, just brings more 'lack of money' mentality. So I want to shift the thought to just 'fun', and ways to have it. Soooo, what I am about to suggest is just one idea. I like the idea, and I can see a business idea in it for some clever person who might like to partner with me in a venture. (but bare in mind, I see business ideas in just about everything). OOOH, I just thought I should do a and have a page for 'business ideas'. See what happens, out of control again (I am so grateful for this). Anyway... Sooo here we go! Mowing Fun For those people who have a front lawn (or a back one), try mowing a design in your lawn. Get the kids involved with the design and the mowing. They learn about planning, goal achievement, and rewards. The family can get together and support each other and appreciate each others contribution and have some fun in the process. Dysfunctional or unhappy families might find this a challenge as respect and appreciation are involved (ooooh) (if this sounds like you, try it anyway and see what happens, get family/parenting/relationship assistance from somewhere, and start to enjoy your life). Choose a simple design first eg smiley face , checker board (can be used to actually play checkers on if you want to make big checkers (another project), or words. How about mowing 'I LOVE YOU' on the front lawn, or 'FUN', or '$' (always think joyful thoughts when you see/use this symbol). Of course it would be quite ridiculous to mow negative or abusive words, (just don't think about it). You can plan what you want on your lawn, pace it out and mark it out (lots of ways to do this) and start to mow. You can mow 'in' the design by mowing short the actual design and leave the remainder/background a bit longer, so the 'in' part shows up. Or, you can mow 'out' your design by, mowing the background short, and leaving the design long, so that it stands up/out. It might be a bit tricky, but that is part of the fun. Be creative. If you don't like the effect you made, no problem, just mow over it in the usual way and start again next week when the lawn has grown again. Just think of the benefits to you, your family, your community. A very simple way to use what you have already got to produce a different outcome. 'Do what you have always done, and you will get what you have always got'. So this time 'do something different, like mow your lawn in a pattern, and you will get a different result, that can be very pleasing, fun, creative, and draw attention to yourself. When people apply their resources in an expanded way, the resource takes on a new meaning. The resource might be physical, mental, emotional, or spiritual; they can be used together or singularly or in combination. The lawn mower and the lawn become instruments of living art! They become the means of creative endeavour. Mowing the lawn is transformed from a chore to a fun experience. Once the creative juices are flowing, who knows where they will lead to. The outcomes could be amazing, short term and long term. Think about what you can achieve! You have the resources available anyway, may as well use them. You are here in this life anyway, you may as well enjoy it. If you choose a front lawn, the local community will notice it and probably comment. Positive images in the community are helpful to raise the 'happiness' metre just a bit. If someone gets a little giggle out of it, you have helped that person's day go a bit happier; a free community service. Designs can be decorative also. What about a scalloped edge, or a triangle edge. Circles are good also when you start from the outside and mow in circles to the centre, creating a spiral effect. So you get the idea. I ask the question 'what else is possible'. You will be surprised at the answers that show up. Very kind regards from Jane. you can contact me for more info at movement4improvement at
