Feng Shui requires careful choice, says Juliana Abram.
Life's all about choices, isn't it. It's
probably the defining message
from all the self help gurus and
life coaches and we know its truth
from our own moments of clarity, too.
We can choose gloom and misery, or we can
smile on life -- and see it smile back at us in
In my case, as I shared with you last
month, as I pursue my long-overdue
fitness routine, I can either tune into my knee
as it crunches audibly in a squat (really), or I
can rejoice that it's hanging in there and
despite its grumblings of discontent even
seems to be enjoying itself. I'm just happy I
can still ride a few kilometres or kneel in a
stretching cat pose and sense my deranged
knee (the rather alarming description on my
xray) healing itself. It's empowering.
And so, too, are one or two events
that have happened around the world
this month, that make us aware we are
all part of the one family of humanity.
After so much humiliation heaped upon
it by a censorious world, a European
world used to its creature comforts, India
triumphed in the Delhi Commonwealth
Games. Admittedly, the frantic last minute
efforts probably did avert a crisis or two
and it was sad to see the road events
devoid of any spectators because of security
overkill, but it was still largely a success. And
while some nations seemed very precious
about their accommodation, it was great to
see us Aussies the first team into the village
and helping get it into order. We seemed
unfazed by India, eternal and unmoveable
India, and that has to have played a role in
our success, too.
It reminds me of a time we had to
send a letter by express post from
Mysore, a city where time seems to have
stood still over the centuries, to reach
Perth before the Christmas postal
shutdown. As we climbed some dingy
stairs to an agency we were assured would
handle our request more efficiently than
India's creaking bureaucracy, my heart
was in my mouth. And when we were
led to the stamp counter, a pot of Clag
tied by string to a wooden lectern, it
was skipping a few beats. But there was
something about the woman in charge
that inspired confidence. She put
our minds completely at ease... she was
right. The letter, with its Clagged stamps,
reached Australia in two days, then got
stuck in our own sanitised, but equally
unmoveable, postal bureaucracy until
after New Year. India excelled, Australia
shut up shop.
There's been an even more uplifting
event in recent weeks, of course the rescue
of the Chilean miners. I can still feel the
hairs on my neck rising at the sight of the
first of these poor entombed men coming
to the surface. It was a true triumph of the
spirit, of the men themselves who main-
tained their hope and heart through almost
three months of darkness, and of the
watching world. I have Chilean friends who
were overjoyed, but I think we all were. We
all belong to one family. The miners' resolute
leader Luis Urzua probably put it best:
"We have done what the entire world was
waiting for. We had strength, we had spirit,
we wanted to fight, we wanted to fight
for our families, and that was the greatest
thing." What an inspiration for us all.
