Simplicity

You may have heard the phrase “keep it simple, stupid” (or K.I.S.S. as it is sometimes written in abbreviated form).

Glove Puppets

A Map of Happiness?

Some years ago I went on a weekend course about Positive Psychology. I enjoyed it, filed away my notes and then forgot about it ….. Since then ‘The Happy City’ Project in Bristol began and a ‘Happiness Habits’ course was advertised. I enrolled and have to say it was one of the best practical eight

This is an edited version of the final words spoken by Bruno Huber at the last seminar he gave in England in 1998. The full text is in the book ‘Astrology and the Seven Rays’. There is a need for a certain purity of that kind of astrology which we do, because it is so

Dear Pluto

It’s good to see you back in the news after that terrible time in August 2006 when you were demoted from your status as a planet in our solar system by a group of scientists and astronomers who’d got together in Prague to do the deed. You were downgraded to a dwarf planet. That meant
