1995 Oct 27 (Instant Karma)

It was one of those things that financial companies used to Love doing...
Where the employees are rounded up into buses and they go away for a "Love in"..
Typically, there would be a conference centre...
where some Guru gets up in front of the classroom and talks about Team stuff..
The Dude thought it was all OK,  but at some level the message did not resonate...
He thought it was too pointed..  too mind driven...
and 
real Change needed to come from a different place...
The day dragged on into the afternoon and he excused himself from the room...
On the way back from the bathroom... he noticed the entrance to what looked like an outside bush trail...On instinct, he walked towards it..h
e hesitated for a moment.. Breathed..  
and in a Heartbeat he was gone. 


The ensuing track was wonderful... 
The Dude acknowledged Mt Tamborine (Gold Coast) is stunning.
As he kept walking up the ridge...  
he could feel the distance between him and the conference.. the Great Escape.
Eventually he stopped... he took a seat and gazed at the magnificent view.
 
He rested and breathed... 
He discarded everything from his mind.
He soaked up everything.... 
                 ..that the solitude had to offer.



He wondered about his job “How did i get here???” 
Computer programming and Business analysis are things that he struggles with. 
Yet, this was his career? 
The Dude acknowledges he is way too much of a Dreamer to be good at Information Technology.
The Dude breathed out and sighed.
He then decided to think about the things he was good at...There was a pause .. as he waited for the Quiet Energy to come back in...

Finally, he self reflected: Family (Husband, Dad, Son, Brother) were all things he did very well. "People are the best investment..."
Plus, he has many strong friendships with his work colleagues.
He is particularly proud of the number of strong relations he has with many female professionals.




IMHO “Energy at a soul level... is neither Feminine nor Masculine...” 
and "that sort of energy is as old as time itself"
Society is slowly replacing some of the False Messages about men and women... spread by skewed consciousness in the Media..
Now through technology... some of the real 60s heroes are floating back to the surface...
The Dude took a deep breath ... There was much cause for Hope..
He breathed again.. his Personal Odyssey.. what the Dude calls  Pathways to Nirvana



Footnote: when the Dude thinks of “Instant Karma” he thinks of this video clip. It features two of his biggest influences from the 60sJohn Lennon and bass player Klaus Voormann:
