Dr Ainslie Meares, Shivapuri Baba and meditation

How many people would you say you owe your life to? Interesting question… Mother first and foremost. Father naturally. But after that???

One of the people I owe my own life to is Dr Ainslie Meares. He taught me meditation in a way that made it possible for me to endure all that cancer threw at me, and even more, to overcome it altogether.

But Ainslie’e knowledge of meditation had its genesis in a 3 day meeting in Katmandu with the venerable and ancient Hindu yogi Shivapuri Baba. This little known figure was truly remarkable, truly extra -ordinary. Recently I met up with Cliff Woodward who has been studying the life and works of Shivapuri Baba for many years and actually visited his ashram in Katmandu.

As part of this guest blog, Cliff has kindly shared some of the key points of Shivapuri Baba’s life and teachings. Enjoy, plus a reminder my new meditation book Blue Sky Mind is now available, but first

       Thought for the day

          If you can see your path 
          Laid out in front of you step by step, 
          You know it is not your path. 

          Your own path 
          You make with every step you take. 
          That is why it is your path.

                        Joseph Campbell

From Cliff Woodward…
Shivapuri Baba’s remarkable life spanned an astounding 137 years from 1826 to 1963. (This is based on British records - and they were meticulous!) Probably one of the greatest human beings of recent times, Shivapuri Baba remains one of the least known and least celebrated.

This slight, little man who lived a life of ascetic, utter simplicity, was a giant of the spiritual life, sharing a teaching that is absolutely relevant to our lives right now, and could rightfully be seen as the antidote to the path of blind, egotistical self –destruction that our species has got itself onto. He called his teaching Right Life.

The external facts of his long life are indeed remarkable and worthy of a full-length movie film, although I sincerely hope it is never made!

The fact that he walked every continent [except Antarctica] on his world pilgrimage beginning at around 60 years of age, lasting over 30 years; he met many of the great men and women of the early 20th century [such as Einstein, the Curies, Marconi, Tolstoy], had eighteen audiences with Queen Victoria – but about all that he wanted nothing said, no publicity at all.

He consented to only one book being written about him towards the end of his lifetime, by the great English philosopher and spiritual seeker, J.G. Bennett, called “Long Pilgrimage,” which was published in 1965.

And his unambiguous instruction to Bennett was “You must write a book about my Teaching, not my life.” He himself, though seeming to have read everything of significance, wrote no books. He shares this in common with some other teachers of universal significance like Socrates and Jesus of Nazareth.

So what is the essence of this Teaching, Right Life? The first thing to say is that S.B. never suggested that this Teaching was his invention or his ‘intellectual property’, only that he had made accessible, to the contemporary mind, what was at the core of all the great Teachings of mankind, since time immemorial. Why would this be so?

Because the fundamental challenges that face how we live our lives as human beings have never been any different and never will be. All of the great spiritual traditions can be seen as different attempts to guide us into the solutions to these challenges, with greater or lesser success as we manage to despoil them.

It is interesting to note that there are many accounts of people from different spiritual/religious backgrounds meeting S.B., and each of them thought that he was the most perfected Buddhist, Hindu, Christian, Muslim - whatever background they were coming from - that they had ever met!

This was surely because S.B. could go to the core of any of these Teachings and speak its Truth.

He was completely free of dogmatism or any narrowness of perspective – a Universal Man.

Right Life is structured around three fundamental Duties.

With the First Duty, Right Life begins by acknowledging the fundamentals of our human life.

We have certain inescapable obligations or duties: the need to maintain our physical body, feed it, clothe it, keep it in health; and the need to earn a living in some way. This is a baseline that none are exempt from. We could see the First Duty as centred on the fundamental ‘Laws’, physical, moral and societal, that we have to obey. If we neglect them our lives end up in a mess of one kind or another.

The Second Duty focuses on our inner or moral life. It is about removing or overcoming our ‘defects in character’, our anger, resentment, jealousy etc. These things have to be seen, accepted and gradually eliminated from our lives. Further, we can consciously cultivate the positive qualities that may be missing from our lives, or at least not playing a strong enough role. So things like forgiveness, humility, empathy, kindness, need to be deliberately cultivated in our lives, must manifest in our lives – not just be ‘good ideas’ to aspire to.

These positive virtues can be found spelled out in any of the great spiritual teachings, for example The Sermon on the Mount in the Christian tradition, in Chapter 16 of the Bhagavad Gita in the Hindu tradition.

These Duties, according to Right Life, are not just to be acknowledged/accepted, they are to be perfected.

They have to be mindfully engaged with and worked on with perseverance.

We need to be consciously directing our lives in these directions, even down to the most basic practical tasks; for example, if I am failing to pay my bills on time, how do I get better at this?

If I can’t remember where I put things, how do I improve on this?

We do not accept or indulge our failings or weaknesses in little things or big.

Our constant aim is to make small, achievable changes that we can build on; like radical, sudden-weight-loss diets, attempting too much change too soon, will just rebound on us.

Of course we are going to fail, especially in the beginning, but we are enjoined to learn from our mistakes and keep at it – this is a life-long process! Ask yourself, what is the alternative to this? Surely the answer is to keep making the same errors and not evolving.

Shivapuri Baba described Right Life as “Your self-promised life”, meaning the life that you have set for yourself. So, for example, if I recognize that anger plays too strong a role in my life {at home or at work} and I have set myself to make some changes around this, this is my promise to myself.

It does not require the approbation {or the condemnation} of anyone or anything else – not THE church or THE faith or THE dogma. It is my deal, my promise, with myself. This places the teaching of Right Life in a very different space than we are accustomed to. It is not immediately obvious to most of us just how unique this is – it dawns over time!

But there is more!

The Third Duty is concerned with our Spiritual or Soul life, our deepest connection with ourselves, the Universe, God; express it as we will. S.B. said that eventually, to any sane human being looking at the basic facts of Life, there must arise a question such as:

What is the source of all this?

What is my significance in all this?

Does it all die with me?

The satisfactory answer to such a question, for you or I, is the basis for our deepest sense of peace or fulfilment – my answer, or anybody else’s answer, will not cut it, it must be YOUR answer. S.B. taught, again in line with all the great traditions, this is what we are here for on planet earth, to find such an answer – nothing, absolutely nothing, material success or power, will suffice. We can fill our lives with all sorts of things, all sorts of distractions, but the fundamental question will never go away.

So clearly the Third Duty relates to our practice of Meditation and Prayer. Note that S.B. never taught that there was one way into this: he encouraged people to follow their Christian way or Buddhist way, whatever they are connected to, but follow it with the correct understanding of its foundation in Right Life.

We need to attend correctly to all Three Duties, not any one of them, in order to succeed – truly a three-legged stool. Can you see how important this is? This Teaching is telling us, insisting, that, for example, you cannot just plunge into Meditation or diverse religious observances, leaving your practical life and moral life a total mess, and expect any success. It just does not work.

The other clear implication of this Right Life Teaching is that it encompasses the whole of your life. The very living of your life, on a day by day, minute by minute basis, is your Spiritual practice, is your life’s significance.

This is not a Teaching for the spiritually immature, for the ‘spiritual thrill seeker’; this is a Teaching that asks everything of you, but delivers Everything in its place.

The best answer to stress? Meditation!

Who does not have stress in their life these days?

Meditators! So how does meditation negate stress?

How can you explain it simply to your friends? This week, we go to the heart of meditation and examine why it is so simple and reliable.

And a reminder, Blue Sky Mind is now available, as are the downloads that will guide you personally into the meditations, but first

               Thought for the day

In meditation the mind keeps wandering. 
We keep bringing it back, and it wanders again. 
And we bring it back again, and so it goes on, 
Maybe for months and years, 
Until at last the mind becomes stabilised . . . 

Thoughts go roving around in the head, 
But if we bring them down into the heart, 
That is, the centre of the person, 
They come to rest.

                          Fr Bede Griffiths
River of Compassion: A Christian Commentary on the Bhagavad Gita.

Just why is meditation such a reliable antidote to stress and anxiety? 

Now, to be clear, when speaking of meditation, I speak of learning to relax deeply in a physical sense, and then to go beyond the activity of the thinking mind into a deeper stillness.

In fact, real meditation introduces us, or perhaps just makes abundantly clear, that the mind does have two aspects; there is the active thinking mind and the still mind.

The thinking mind is the domain of stress

How we perceive things.

How we interpret things.

How we think determines the stress we may or may not experience.

The still mind is beyond all this.

The still mind is calm and clear. The still mind is highly creative, highly productive, but it is the domain of deep, natural peace.

How then to help the thinking mind let go of stress, to become clear and calm, to become stress free?

First an analogy. If we were interested in the true nature of the sky but had never seen it before; and went outside on a cloudy grey day, we could form the view that the sky was this grey fluffy stuff that filled the space above us.

However, those of us who do have a little more familiarity with the sky know of course that clouds as we call them are only one part of the sky.

There is a second part, a second aspect – all that space that appears to be that big blue canopy we are so familiar with and that is so evident on a cloud-free day.

Those of us that are more familiar with the sky know that clouds come and go, yet the blue canopy is always there.

So even on the cloudiest, stormiest, wildest of days, sooner or later the clouds do clear and there it is.

It was always there of course, that clear blue sky, it is just that sometimes the clouds obscure it from our direct sight.

So, the analogy is good. With our minds, thoughts come and go all the time; they are ever-changing and impermanent. Happy thoughts, stressful thoughts. They come and they go. But sooner or later they will clear, and reveal this deeper stillness, the more fundamental enduring, stable aspect of our mind.

So there is the active and the still mind. Meditation provides a reliable way to go beyond the activity of the thinking mind and directly experience the stillness of the more fundamental or true nature of our mind. And in doing so, meditation offers 3 major benefits: Profound Peace, Natural Balance, and the View.

Profound Peace speaks for itself. There is a natural ease, an inner clarity and confidence that comes with meditation that provides a profoundly effective antidote to stress.

But more, this profound peace, coupled with deep physical relaxation brings Natural Balance to our whole being. Physically our body chemistry and physiology regains its natural balance. It is like meditation resets our factory settings and recalibrates the physiological changes we know accompany adverse stress, and over time becomes our default setting.

So this is how meditation diffuses stress and anxiety – with a return to a natural, healthy balance.

But there is still more! This natural balance flows on to be experienced as emotional balance, mental balance; there is even a deep sense of connectedness and a natural rise of love, compassion and altruism – a spiritual balance.

And perhaps even more profoundly, meditation offers a new perspective. We begin to see the world, and our life, not just from the perspective of the ever-changing “thinking mind”, but also from a more profound vantage point – that of the still mind, the true nature of our mind.

The View is a word that is used to encapsulate how we view the world, how we interpret our life.

What meaning and purpose we experience in this life.

Our View is tied up with our values, our ethics, our habits, and our beliefs.

How we live our life.

Now, our View of course is radically affected by our perspective. For those whose perspective does happen to lead them to think that all they are is just this body, it is easy to imagine how they “over-identify” with their body image and their physical health and in doing so become highly stress-prone.

For those whose perspective or View is such that they conclude life is all about relationships, and in so doing over-identify with their partner or children, or even their community, it is easy to imagine how the ups and downs of life will make them particularly vulnerable to chronic stress.

For those whose View is that life is all about mental reason, and as a consequence over-identify with the rational, logical, scientific aspects of their mind, it is easy to imagine how the mysteries of life, the unexplainable, the new, the challenging makes them significantly prone to stress.

So, one elegant definition of stress is “over-identification with the wrong part of our self”.

Body, emotions and mind are very important, but they are not who we really are. Over-identifying with them will mean we are bound to be stressed, maybe even full on anxious.

When we change our perspective, everything changes.

If we have a problem, as we see it, and we fixate on it, it is like holding an egg to our eye – we can see nothing.

It is a big problem and it obscures everything.

However, if we hold the egg at arms-length, we recognise it for what it is. It is an egg with loads of possibilities, loads of potential.

So meditation introduces us to who we really are, what is in our heart’s essence. And in doing so, meditation offers three great gifts Profound Peace, Natural Balance and the View.

Truly meditation offers a unique pathway to stress free stress-management.

Top 4 ways to boost your immune system

What is something you can do every morning with very little extra effort, but just a whiff of discipline that can significantly boost your immune system? We have been recommending this for around 40 years, but a recent article made it sound like a new discovery so it has prompted this week’s post that is research based - how to use everyday things to best to boost your immune system, but first

                 Thought for the Day

       Though my View is as spacious as the sky,

       My actions and respect for cause and effect 
       Are as fine as grains of flour.


Number 1 top way to boost your immune system - Regular Meditation

No surprises here. Plenty of research indicates meditation’s direct beneficial impact on immune function. However, of even more benefit may be the fact that the more we meditate, the more likely we are to do a whole host of things that are good for us - and have the inner discipline to continue to do them.

From the research : Mindfulness meditation appears to be associated with reductions in pro-inflammatory processes, increases in cell-mediated defence parameters and increases in enzyme activity that guards against cell aging. More research needed…

Black DS. Mindfulness meditation and the immune system: a systematic review of randomized controlled trials. Ann N Y Acad Sci. 2016 Jun; 1373(1): 13–24.

Number 2 top way to boost your immune system - Plant based diet

Probably no surprises here either! A great deal of evidence has now built up to support this contention. Here is one of the latest…

From the research : Plant-based sources of protein decrease chronic inflammation, according to this recent study. Researchers tracked protein intakes for 2,061 participants and compared inflammatory biomarkers between total, animal, and plant-based protein sources. Those who replaced animal protein with plant-based protein showed improvements in a particular biomarker associated with overall inflammation and oxidative stress. The authors note that increased plant-based protein may lower the inflammation burden among aging populations.

Hruby A, Jacques PF. Dietary protein and changes in biomarkers of inflammation and oxidative stress in the Framingham Heart Study Offspring Cohort. Curr Dev Nutr. 2019;3:1-9.

Number 3 top way to boost your immune system - Regular moderate exercise

Again most probably know this by now. Strenuous exercise can in fact weaken the immune system - something marathon runners need to really watch.

However, exercise at a level where you can talk while doing it, and feel better after you complete your session and that level of exercise has many positive benefits.

From the research : Moderate exercise seems to have a beneficial effect on the immune function, improving both the humoral and the cellular immune system.

Jeurrisen A teal. The Effects of physical exercise on the immune system. Ned Tijdschr Geneeskd. 2003 Jul 12;147(28):1347-51.

Number 4 top way to boost your immune system - Cold showers

This is the one we have recommended for years. Seems the mild stress of the cold shower causes the body to lift its game and ramp up its immune responses.

There is a caution...

Most people have a warm shower first, then shift to cold. However, doing this suddenly has been associated with a mild increase in heart attack risk. Therefore, turn the cold on in a few steps with time to adjust between - then all is good.

From the research : This is an area where the actual research articles are hard to track down, but here is one from a few years back…

Shevchuk NA, Radoja S. Possible stimulation of anti-tumor immunity using repeated cold stress: A hypothesis. Infect Agent Cancer. 2007;2:20.

Speaking personally, I have been having a cold shower every day for around 50 years - plus the others above. In that time have had virtually zero colds and only one bout of the flu and yes, I do not take the flu vaccine. Lucky? Maybe…  But these are 4 top ways proven to boost immune function.

And the side effect? The daily cold shower helps maintain the discipline to do the others - although I do really enjoy the others anyway .

Is this the simple answer to climate change?

It is clear we live in deeply challenging times. The climate change threats are real. But is there a simple answer? I believe so and this week reveal what it is and how we might accomplish it. Plus a reminder of meditation workshops in Melbourne, Sydney and the Yarra Valley to feature my new book Blue Sky Mind - with both Ruth and myself, but first

      Thought for the day

           We are the ancestors of the future
           What do you want your legacy to be?

                 Julia Butterfly Hill

Maybe it is as simple as this… 

Live a life centred around high rise… 

Run the risk of becoming disconnected from community, isolated from nature, self absorbed, indifferent to food and its sources, become mindless with waste and rubbish, increasingly lose touch with the rhythms of life.

Live a life centred around a garden…

Become connected to community, grow increasingly in touch with nature, realize the interdependencies of all life, gain deep appreciation for those who grow food and any animals and people involved in providing it, become increasingly wary of chemicals used for food growing, the over refinement and processing of food, the consequences of waste and rubbish, feel a genuine engagement with natural recycling and the rhythms of life including life and death itself - in short, develop an appreciation, respect and love for life.

So the simple solution?

Get involved with a garden!

If you already have a garden, can you make it bigger?

If you do live in a high rise, have you a balcony, can you do some indoor gardening, can you join one of the increasing number of community gardens?

Do you have children, grand-children, any children you can influence?


The suggestion is, out of gardening comes a natural appreciation for nature.

Connecting with the earth, helping it to become bountiful, leads to a natural appreciation, a natural desire for conservation and a natural desire to do whatever it takes to counter climate change and preserve our wonderful planet.


And enjoy!


Join Ruth and myself as we share with you in a day of meditation.
Lovely way to connect, great opportunity to meditate together, explore the new ideas from my new book Blue Sky Mind (still waiting for copies to be printed - should be a couple more weeks), have your questions answered and enjoy a day with lots of practice together.

Difficult relationships – and 8 tips towards something better

How many times have you overheard or said, “I could be more effective if it wasn’t for the people around me – they are just so difficult to get along with”. Or “They are just so unreasonable! I really can’t bear the way they talk to me".

If your relationships trouble you, this week great insights and 8 top tips that can be useful in every situation. Guest blogger Murray Paterson's expertise in relationships has been honed by 35 years as a senior manager in the corporate world, and also comes informed by his strong grounding as a teacher of mindfulness.

You may well find Murray's insights and tips helpful in everyday life or in your own workplace.

Also, Murray is joining Ruth as co-presenter in what could well be a life-transforming meditation and mindfulness based retreat in September, Mindful Relationships. 

The experiences and knowledge, along with the expertise Ruth and Murray bring to this key topic of relationships are very synergistic.

They make a great team.

And of course, speaking from experience, Ruth is fabulous at helping people express their emotions and build good relationships in a very practical yet truly joyful way!!! It is hard for me to quantify just how much benefit in this regard I have gained from our marriage; it has been wonderful  :)

Also this week, news of the meditation workshop Ruth and I will present in Brunswick on 15th June -  Blue Sky Mind, but first

     Thought for the day

            If you do not transform your suffering

            You will transmit it

                     Richard Rohr

From Murray Paterson…
Working in corporate life for 35+ years as a senior manager and leader has taught me that workplaces are often fraught-places! Rather than bringing us a sense of joy and fulfilment, workplaces are often a source of significant stress and anxiety, and much of this comes from difficult or challenging professional relationships.

If your professional relationships trouble you, are you actively doing something about it?

Or instead do you find yourself endlessly thinking or talking to others about what you should do, what you should say, while ruminating over these thoughts and feelings?

Do you spend your time trying to fall asleep with a sense of unresolved anguish about a professional relationship, or wake in the middle of the night tossing the issue around and around?

I often wonder about the amount of time and energy we devote to worrying about our relationships at work, and the impact this has on our effectiveness, but also on our health and wellbeing.

If this is a common experience for you, then you might like to read through the following reflections, drawn from my experiences in a professional services firm, so that you may be able to gain some perspective and begin to take control of this aspect of your life.

To set the scene, the relationships I am describing are based on particular professional and organisational characteristics of a professional services firm.

In my experience many people who work in the corporate environment

Are typically highly introverted
Have strongly held professional values around perfectionism, expertise and competitiveness
Are extremely fearful of failure
Apply their capacity for complex problem solving to relationship issues (rather than confront them directly)
Prefer to work from precedent rather than to experiment with novelty and innovation
Are addicted to speed in the execution of work
Work under extreme time pressure.

These personal and professional norms lead to relationships which are generally

Hierarchical in nature
Distinguished by silence rather than noise.

And the outcomes are often

Teams of people that do not know each other well
Very low levels of skill in developing interpersonal relationships (and a disinterest in doing so)
A strong reluctance to try to resolve problems (real or perceived) in relationships
A strong preference for judging the competence or ‘value’ of others leading to a fixed mindset  about individuals
Impatience, frustration and even animosity towards others that is largely internally felt but sometimes externally expressed
High levels of stress and anxiety
High levels of unhappiness and suffering
Lack of kindness towards others
Poor focus on tasks due to a distracted and distressed mind.

It seems inevitable that individuals in such a place would have strong deficiencies in the quality of their relationships, a low sense of engagement at work, perhaps a reluctance to come to work even, or to engage fully with those around them. What can we do to improve the nature of these relationships?

What can we do to foster improved working relationships? 

Based upon years of experience helping individuals and teams to transform all of this,
here are my 8 top tips…

1. Develop self-awareness - through learning and practising the skill of mindfulness meditation.

This will improve your capacity for focus and attention and you will enjoy the benefits of lowered anxiety and stress with continued practice.

2. Be curious about your response to the world – making time to reflect on your reaction rather than simply giving in to it.

3. Understand your emotions - the role they have on both what you think and how you think.

4. Practice gratitude - consider how much you rely on others to be where you are today, and to sustain you in the work you do, rather than behave as if you are an independent agent in the world.

5. Start with the best intention - assume that those you work with have the best intention rather than the worst: and always consult your own intention when you are about to do or say something as a method of self-regulation - and aim for your best.

6. Develop compassion - extend a sense of compassion and care firstly to yourself and then to those around you – at home, in your organisation, with your clients or customers

7. Maintain beginner’s mind - be open and fresh. Seek to witness the world from a beginner’s mind rather than one that is set in habitual belief, reaction and response. Give space for creativity.

8. Show up! - choose to bring your whole self to work, an act requiring openness and courage, but which will result in greater personal connection and reduced social isolation

These 8 suggestions may sound easy enough, yet experience tells me applying them is not so easy.

So along with Ruth, I have put together a 5 day retreat where we will gently address these issues and their solutions, along with providing time out to relax, reflect, regenerate and learn more about mindfulness and meditation, do a nice amount of practice together, have free time to walk amidst the natural beauty of the Upper Yarra Valley and its wonderful trees, be massaged, be well fed and generally looked after!

So if you would like to explore how you relate to others – both at work, and in your personal relationships, then please do come to our retreat ‘Mindful Relationships’ at the Yarra Valley Living Centre.
