Earth Day 2014 – You are the Earth

Nature Earth DayMeditation teaches us more than any book can. We are intelligent beings torn between spirit and ego. Our lives are spent finding balance between the two. Meditation, is where spirit and ego meet, it is where they learn to get a long. As we develop this relationship we are able to see the connection between our internal and external worlds and how they are intertwined so delicately and inseparably. Continue reading

World Wide Wave 04.04.14

It does not come as a surprise that the world needs a wake up call. Certain corporations, and those giving money to them, are driving this planet to its grave, along with all it’s inhabitants.

We can’t wait any longer for ‘appointed‘ world leaders to take the reins.

It’s down to us all as individuals to do what we can to make this World the ‘Heaven on Earth‘ that it is destined to be. The thing is though, it won’t happen unless those enlightened souls, or those that are slowly awakening, take action! Continue reading

The Only Motivation Speech You Will Ever Need

The video I am about to share with you could be used as your final post ever to Facebook. You could use it as your “Peace Out I’ve got better things to do” post.

A friend of mine directed me to Stefan Molyneux, a fantastic man who has a foot strongly in politics, and runs freedomainradio.com, decided to vent about complainers.

You must find 14 minutes to sit down and take heed of his words, it’s the only video you ever need to watch on this topic.

Without further ado, watch this hilarious, yet incredibly poignant presentation and take his advice!

ALL of YOU!

Why I’m volunteering for the Dogwood No Tankers Campaign

Many of you are aware of the Northern Gateway Pipeline and the devastating impacts this project will have on the future of our species. The commencement of this pipeline will expand the Canadian Tar Sands development to a point that will cause immense damage to the atmosphere and will tip us over the edge in regards to global emissions. Our planets delicate eco system will be pushed into a place that will be unable to support human life. The extraction process itself uses two barrels of fresh water to create one barrel of oil and with our finite availability of water, this is an incredibly suicidal decision.

Inspired to Freshen Up – New Look Site

I know, I know, it wasn’t that long ago since I changed my site, but I just wanted to get out of the old look into something temporary that worked on mobile devices. I didn’t like the way the last theme operated and so just last night I stumbled across this awesome looking theme!

The picture across the top is one I took here in my home of Tofino. It was a stormy day last year and was shot from the rocks between Rosie bay and the Point on Cox Bay. It was a pretty spectacular day, which I hope translates well in the image?

The new theme, is in fact a free theme, so there are some limitations,. Upgrading to the pro version will release some of those limitations, so keep an eye open for that possibility somewhere in the near future.

Finding Time

Maintaining this blog is difficult due to time constraints.

My main work takes place over on traktortips.com and this takes up the majority of my spare time.

The ‘Take to Change’ site is currently a hobby site, but I plan on making more of it and setting the right intentions to mould it into a worthwhile resource for inspiration, encouragement, spiritual advancement, environmental stewardship and just general content.

For those familiar with the old site, you will notice that many of the articles have been hidden. I plan on working through these articles and hatching a new way of organizing the posts into a more meaningful and common sense way.

If you have any ideas for this site, I’d love to hear them down below. In the meantime have a little poke around, there’s not too miuch to see right now, but there should be sometime soon.

Thanks

Alan
