One of the greatest joys for me
these days, and something I
hope I never take for granted,
is the easy connectivity of our
lives. It's just so ea sy to keep in touch, even
when the person we're 'talking' to is on the
other side of the world. Texts, emails, Skype,
Facebook, other assorted social media, even
the odd phone call or two! It makes for an
exciting world and we can see what it makes
possible just in this issue.
For sta rters, we step into China to gain a
fleeting sense of her endless mystery, we trace
the story of the woman who has dedicated
her life to saving Africa's sacred White Lions
and we share with a young Irish visitor to our
shores her ongoing struggle with depression.
We even have Deepak Chopra offering us
insights that, in Australia, you'll read only
here in this maga zine.
But while connectivity is easy, as easy
as some da zzling finger work on your smart
phone, true, deep connection is much, much
harder. And that's the real story of our Irish
visitor's tale, 'Get Talking'. Louise Keogh has
found since her teenage years that her illness
is isolating and that so many people really
don't want to know. But she knows herself
that being able to talk about how she feels can
help lift her spirits during those darker times.
Louise asks each one of us to be that person
who lends the friendly ear when someone we
love -- or even a stranger -- reaches out to us.
In this simple act, we may be doing more
good than we can ever know.
Already, you'll be pleased to hear, we
Aussies have won over Louise with our
openness a nd approachability, such a
contra st she finds with far more conservative
attitudes towards mental illness back home.
She's "fallen head over heels" for us and I'm
certain it works both ways! Courage and
openness are very appealing traits.
Another I'd like to thank this month is
David Arenson who's written an account of
his 10 weeks spent in China, a land whose
mystery he has always found intriguing. In
'The Way of Chi', David reveals some of
its contradictions, that contra st between
centuries-old Taoist spirituality and the
24/7 clamour and energy that drives
this amazing economy. And he's a great
photographer as well.
Once again, we have some very strong
health features for you, with Peter Dingle PhD
warning about the effects of micronutrient
deficiencies, almost unavoidable with our
depleted soils and compromised food chain.
More power to organics! And naturopath
Lyn Craven's comprehensive look at how
importa nt a healthy bowel is to our overall
well being. It's well worth the read.
On the subject of food a nd what we do
with it, Sahaja Coventry, well known to our
WA readers, has contributed a heartfelt piece
called 'Winning the Food Fight'. As she has
found in her own life, the issues so many
people have with food are not just about
putting on weight; they're often tied up
with our self esteem. It's another honest and
As I write this column, we're heading
towards our long awaited federal election.
Let's hope honesty and hea rt finally find
some traction there too. Have a great month.
