Yesterday we left the hotel at 4.30am with Rai, our driver. Thanks Kate for his name and number – great guy, loves what he does!!!!!!
I wrote a post on the changes of the 21st Century the other day. This sunrise, below, was not only speccy it was a perfect backdrop for us of how many things are changing on our planet.
So why not create a Bali Travel Blog!
For many of us reading this blog we are already in the change or are a little left behind a little but we can mostly see that we all need to make the changes to ourselves.
In Bali many types of farming is rapidly disappearing with the some fishing villages now tourist villages. Rai was telling us that Levine was once one of the main fishing villages on Bali. The traditional fishermen were diverting the dolphins in years gone by to keep them from eating the fish. Now those same fishermen feed the dolphins to encourage them to come in for the tourists to see.
Klung Kung, a area of Bali, has many traditional villages in it still operating as they have for many years with the manual loading of supplies for neigbouring islands. This sunrise was the spectacular backdrop of a morning boat loading ritual with items like gas, rice, building materials, chickens, ducks, eggs, bunches of fresh spinach all bound for the neighbouring island .
We could not help thinking, how much longer will this go on for…. How long before one front end loader and one driver will take over from all these mens manual work.
The jobs that are here now will not be here in twenty years. The first time I heard this concept was in a Robert Kiosaki seminar over 20 years ago. How true and relevant this is now, seemingly more so than 20 years ago.
If the acceleration of change continues as it has done for the past five years, jobs that some of us are in now will not be here in 5 years.
A friend sent me this link this morning. I thought it appropriate for yet another type of change for our planet, Not one relating to manual labour at all, one relating to how we carry out our day how the way carry out our day affects other people carrying our their day. Its well worth the 6 minute watch Mark Bertolini sharing his rituals and in his corporate environment to affect his leaders and their teams on a daily level with Yoga and mindfulness.

The changes are here and mostly we love them and I believe that we do have to keep up with them as they will happen with or without us. It will be the ones that keep taking little steps every day, or so, to self educate that will find the changed lifestyle easier! How many of us find a good laugh over the internet nowadays with videos shared over facebook. Diane shared this video over Facebook …. Again another way our everyday living is being affected. Not only technology is shaping us all but also the mixing of our cultures are now at last sharing and being intergrated into our lives. If we choose to of course! Some of us are given the choice to change and some of us are having to get reskilled as fast as possible to keep up and get into a new mode of living.
In the Empower business I am involved in, the trainings are always talking about read and listen to something new everyday….. It is not only necessary but it is beginning of a new lifestyle, one that the changes are bringing. This message is also very strong is the shopping c0-op I use to buy my normal everyday stuff. This way of shopping is changing the planet for less fortunate kids and small businesses around the world also for people like me who can work and shop from anywhere and earn. Just another way of how our lifestyles are changing.

The shopping co-op is a no brainer, its just shopping and getting cash back!
Empower is for people who are serious about being truly free.
