    Oh that's too funny. Don and I have been using "just this" for many years. It's great for getting back to presence and a remembering that this moment is all there is. Just this. Just here. Just now. Nothing is wrong. It's a very effective reminder. And it's true there's nothing wrong. It's this kind of deep exploration, and the discovery and release of hidden belief systems that has allowed me to become more and more free, and at home in myself.

    In case you need reminding, you are a person of great worth and accomplishment.
    Whenever those "belittling" thoughts beset you, read about your journey

    That person, who has grown so much on the way, is you!

    Lol, thanks skatesindreams. I get the message :) <3
    The thing is I do these deep inner explorations and find out what crap I'm believing at unconscious levels and somehow it gets me free of it. I know it's nonsense to think my life has been all about what I can get, well no more than most people anyway, and also nonsense that I have nothing to offer. In shedding light on the hidden agenda it somehow melts away.

    Your effort to get a photo of the silver fern certainly paid off.
    Wow!

    The differing perspectives of the interviewees about their travels were very interesting.

    Yes, I really admire that woman who travels with her mother who's in a wheel chair. That must take patience, and huge organisation. We have times being like the other couple - going to a place and staying for a while. Our next trip is to Turkey, Jordan and Egypt (soooo excited!), but early next year we'll head somewhere warm (Costa Rica maybe) and stay put for several months. We talked today about using that time to finally write that book we've been talking about!

    Thanks Maofan. We didn't hear about the Reporoa eruption, but I did read somewhere that only a small portion of the geothermal fields are open to the public. From your link it seems the Reporoa eruption was only 8km from where we were at Orakei Korako.

    Simply "fantastic"; as in "otherworldly", Allison!

    Thanks skatesindreams. It really is a totally surreal place.
