What does one do with all the time in the world?

Six weeks into my Sabbatical – I sit here reflecting. The days seem busy and at stages I feel like I am not achieving much at all. But why is there this constant drive to achieve at all one asks. Why not relax and simply stare at the moon, the fire, the ocean. So for those of you that are wondering what someone who has written 14 books and stood on over 1,000 stages in the past ten years does with all of he time in the world. Here is a brief synopsis of the past six weeks:

With the mask of Tutankhamen
  • I have lost several kilo’s and my skin looks better and I am definitely more relaxed
  • I have been working on understanding my blood pressure. Ever since I was 25 my BP has been 130/95 now I have it around 125/85 and even down as far as 110/80. The main thing is I know the triggers, Coffee, Alcohol and Stress. Cayenne pepper has been a blessing in helping this
  • I am drinking almost zero alcohol. I was always someone who loved to binge drink… from time to time
  • I have been working on our new feature film, Arjuna, now draft twelve of the script is in Draft two of the Screenplay. It’s feeling great and we launched our crowdfunding project to assist with the tens of thousands I have spent on it personally. https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/a-story-that-inspired-1-1-billion-people/x/5461155#/story
  • I have launched a documentary on my old band – Charley Browne and am talking to they guys about recording a few new tracks: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_q-FNZoeiug&spfreload=10
  • I have been re writing the manuscript for my new book on Pythagoras. This has taken a lot of work with the help of Todd Hutchison, Dave Rogers and Landi Jac as we have had a closer look at the esoterics of his messages and reconstituted them. I am very excited about this work
  • I have been studying full out Marketing on line, so I can share aspects of it with our inner circle and so we at Rock Your Life can become better at it
  • I have had plenty of animal encounters, from having an eagle on my arm, to interacting with a porcupine to visiting several Lion and Tiger sanctuaries
  • I have relooked at every system and product we have at Rock Your Life, surveyed our market place and know more what you want from us and who you think we are. Expect a different us in a relaunch.
  • I have been to Landi’s home town Bloemfontein and seen everywhere she grew up, partied, lived, loved and lost and that has given me a deeper understanding of the love of my life.
  • Together we have had so much fun, from lunching at Wineries, to writing in café’s to visiting Cape Town like tourists, climbing Table Mountain, going over some of it’s stunning passes and sunsets at cool beaches
  • I have auctioned my home in New Zealand and been reviewing property, including a whole re look at life and financial goals and re framing those for the first time in a few years
  • I have de cluttered, getting rid of hoards of stuff from my NZ home
  • We have designed our whole Europe trip starting July, including a Northern Lights cruise and January visit to the Caribbean as well, over 20 countries in the next few months
  • I have deepened and strengthened my relationship with Landi and our beautiful doggie Simon (Seamon), where we have taken the time to have so much deeper and more transformational conversation that ever before and that most people never do, plus I have been practising animal communication
  • I have been studying ancient wisdom in documentaries, rare books we have obtained and online, plus I have a new found interest in a series TV show I never had before
  • I have written a couple of new songs

… and finally – I have gotten out of the habit of needing my laptop, replying to emails just because I felt obligated and have even had it off for days. In fact … one other thing. This is first time I have looked at what I have achieved, whereas I used to consider it daily and beat myself up if I didn’t tick off my to do list.. now I don’t even have one and I feel a lot lighter
