Change feels good–it’s something to celebrate, and that’s what this blog is about.

Key to change is consciousness. It’s essential, progressive, creative, liberating and lasting. It benefits you and the world around you.

Initiating change empowers you to actualize your goals and manifest your creativity while pioneering a new world. While people often feel alone in their efforts for betterment, disconnection is an illusion. In reality, they couldn’t be more connected. I believe people are inherently concerned with the greater good, but are stuck operating within a restrictive mold, where we have to break the mold and change ourselves in order to change what’s more.

Let’s face it, though, life is unpredictable and change is daunting, but hardship actually presents the greatest opportunity to initiate the most meaningful changes. I want to help you change preventively, avoiding difficulty with foresight, but also to be sure you take advantage of every opportunity, realizing it’s full potential.

I’ll help you do all these things to increase health, wealth, well-being and world through inspiring, motivational insights on behavior, society, culture and philosophy, while examining non-conformity, deceit in the media, social influence and mind-opening perspective.

Through personal change you join an international collective celebrating the solstice of historic change. As you embark, you’ll come to find an immense group of supporters at your side as you take control of your life.

SolsticeSon’s Celebrational Servings serves to free you from limiting social conventions and traditional ideas, encouraging you to enter the world of liberated living that starts with a foundation of personal achievement.

The sustainable tree of life

I’ll talk about sustainability in innovative ways that catalyze thinking sustainably, because at the core, solutions to a just, sustainable world rest in our consciousness–our expectations, decisions, habits and behavior that shape our lives, our children’s lives and complete social paradigm.

All posts welcome you to think more wholly, consciously and positively. You’ll learn that thinking sustainably is easy, invigorating, makes sense, is a natural human tendency and can enhance your everyday life in surprising ways.

Inspiring conscious thought and energizing action to achieve personal development, I hope to illuminate modern social and environmental downturn as the greatest opportunity for change we’ve ever faced.

When to celebrate

Always, but you’ll find 1-3 Celebrational Servings per week that help you achieve change in your life and learn how those actions play into world betterment.

Spicing up today proves a better tomorrow. It’s a celebration.

Please share reflections, viewpoints, opinions and thoughts in comment sections throughout Solsticeson’s Celebrational Servings, and in the spirit, feel free to reblog posts and spread the word.

    All the best in your endeavours, my friend, keep your hand lightly on the tiller and the prow pointing North 🙂

      Thanks, Ian. I’ll do all I can to maintain course through shifting seas–musing, sharing and seeking fellow crew to endure the journey.

        Since you mention shifting seas I dug this extract out of The Boat Of Life in the book The Milk Is White. You may appreciate it:
        If we study the lives of ourselves or others we can see how events occurred at various times, without the exercise of individual will, to take us or them on a particular course or prepare us or them for a future eventuality.
        We can use the analogy of a boat upon the ocean, with the ocean being the potential, the boat being the life, and the individual sitting with the hand on the rudder. The direction in which the prow is pointed, the currents under the boat and the winds prevailing at any given time, take the boat on its journey.
        Our best, and most difficult, course of action is to keep the prow pointing ‘north’ (this being our spiritual ideal) by a firm hand on the tiller whilst being aware of the forces being exerted by the air and ocean currents. This does not mean that we adopt a negative attitude by being totally fatalistic because it is necessary that we set goals as well as try various options and use our initiative to attain them, but this with the awareness that these may not be what is required for us and, hence, we apply the principle of non-attachment to the result. This allows the best to eventuate without any negative feelings relative to the result.

        Thank you for the insight and well poised analogy, Ian. Factors external to individual will often influence one’s course in life, no doubt. As we do our best to navigate the boat of life through a sea of unpredictable circumstances, maintaining the prow due north tracking towards our goal/destination/life philosophy.

        To build on this, I find it most positive and productive to maintain a sense of attachment that adds vigor and gusto to our travels, while accepting a non-attachment to maintain realistic cognition obstructions may preside.

        There is a pertinent bit on human attachment in my post Certain uncertainty: meaning, attachment and fiction, which you may find of interest. Best in your navigation.

    love your blog – just a thought – it would be cool if you enabled the ability to share individual blog entries…i see it enabled on ‘about’ but nothing in place for each blog entry…
