s we blow away the cobwebs of
the yea r that’s just passed, plus a
little too much indulgence over the
festive season, it’s time to welcome
in the new! Of course, it’s customary to take
a long hard look backward, then, after a
deep breath, assure ourselves that we’re not
going to make those same crazy mistakes
a ll over again. Where would we be without
New Yea r’s resolutions?
An idea that’s increasingly wending its way
into my own mind is that it’s important to
sense the connections that join us all, however
removed we may appear to be on the surface
from each other. It’s that intriguing idea of “six
degrees of separation” – that each of us is only
ever six links in the chain away from every
other person on the planet. Tibetan Buddhism
provides a brilliant and tantalising image
of the same idea – an interconnected web
overarching the universe with diamonds at
each of its myriad junctions dancing with each
tiny tremor, each nano-second of connection.
It’s mindblowing in its beauty and its message.
When we open our thinking to be more
receptive to the whole idea of connection, life
starts to flow. It was Jung who coined the term
synchronicity to describe those seemingly
miraculous coincidences we’ve all experienced
at one time or another – the long absent friend
who calls just as we’ve been thinking about
them, the passage in a book that perfectly
answers the call of our soul when we weren’t
even aware of it....
In his great wisdom, he understood
that we all tap into the same deep well, the
collective unconscious, and we all draw
sustenance from it.
The strong sense of connection that binds
a community through times of stress and
heartbreak came to the fore in Sydney in mid
December with the tragic outcome of the café
siege in the middle of the city. It raised the ugly
spectre of terrorism in our beautiful harbour
city. Looking on, we all felt Sydney’s pain but,
more importantly, Sydneysiders themselves
gained strength and deeper understanding of
each other in their spontaneous outpouring of
compassion. The flowers filling Martin Place
were a beautiful tribute in which all could share.
In this first issue of 2015, we’ve touched on
being open to synchronicity so we hope it leads
to a bountiful year ahead for you.
Health is high on ever yone’s list of priorities
for the New Year, of course, so once again
we’ve got some ver y recent findings to inspire
you. Our public health warrior Peter Dingle
PhD explores the link bet ween probiotics
and weight loss which leads him to conclude
that probiotics are as important as any organ
in the body; Nadia Marshall takes a look at
the current trend of intermittent fasting but
from an Ayur vedic perspective; Olivier LeJus
queries what lies behind the worr ying increase
in allergies and Margaret Jasinska shows us the
way to clearer, healthier skin.
And before I go this month, I must thank a
long time Perth reader for a wonderful donation
of $500 towards the NOVA Kashmir Appeal.
As a single contribution it’s tremendously
generous and much appreciated. The appeal is
still open to help build a home for a vulnerable
extended Kashmiri family.
Read the full story at goo.gl/HzcuaP
and email nova email@example.com if
you’d like to donate.
Happy New Year!
