2 questions i get asked often..

any quesiton, any time. always! cos thats what im on the planet for, to help people help themselves with healthful practices that help the animals and the planet too… first quesiton i get asked a lot ‘what certification do you have harley?’. certification? yeah, im certified by mother nature. and i give myself the certification of self love and self approval. cos thats all that matters in the end. me trying to get pieces of paper to prove my worth to people that ‘respect paper more than results’..well, thats not my style. my creditials are the results i get for myself and others. i know this is the optimum way. do we seek credentials from a dolphin before we try and emulate its swimming and sonar abilities? do we seek credentials from a blue jay for its singing ability? i dont seek credentials from anyone. credentials mean NOTHING to me. RESULTS MEAN EVERYTHING..lol! next question..am i fulfilled ‘wasting’ my days via cycling, birdwatching, talking to members in my direct community face to face or online, racing, sleeping, resting, fruit foraging etc? no this doesnt fullfill me…cos IM ALREADY FULLFILLED! being fullfilled is same as being happy. ITS JUST A CHOICE AND ONLY EXPERIENCED IN THE PRESENT MOMENT..so i choose to be happy, be fullfilled, be grateful and that AUTOMATICALLY CHANGES MY FOCUS TO THINGS THAT BRING MORE HAPPIENESS, FULLFILLMENT...

95% or 100%?

what does our body want? 100% commitment or 80% if you went on a date with someone and they said ”im only into 80 or 95% commitment. 100% is just too extreme for me..” what would you think of this person? when we give our body the best, our body thinks higher of us and rewards us in ways that only those whom live by natures laws get to experience.. we are what we eat. and what we are, determines whom we meet. you wanna meet a hamburger or someone that is nice and sweet? or someone fake, sold out, thrashed, dehydrated and made of wheat? perhaps someone that is juicy, real, raw and liv’n a passionate beat? tis that simple. tonight i got 3rd in an A grade criterium bike race. last night i ran 5.8km in 23:19 on a dirt cross country track with hills. last sunday i placed 2nd in an A grade road race. ive been eating watermelon as my staple. supplemented with pears, navel oranges and tomatoes and tender greens. i feel electric. this morning i woke up at 3am just PUMPED! so i wrote poetry till i fell back asleep. cos i needed to save that pumped feeling for tonights race. i attacked and attacked and in the end there was only 3 of us. the last corner i backed it off. it...

back down under…

my first time in darwin. arrived 5am and unpacked my bike and cycled into town to find ‘greenies’ organic shop for a fresh local organic fruit feed..i slept for a few hours on a bench outside the shop. when it opened i grabbed my first local cert organic northern territory melon. it was choice..sweet and juicy to start my aclimitisation back to australia. i find it vital when arriving any new place to ‘bioregionalise’ to the area via eating the freshest and most local organic fruits.. i left darrick in penang. we had our last durian meal for 2008 together and it was time for us both to hit the road and start the next adventure. man, them penang durian feasts on the mountain tops of the oldest durian orchards in the world..with the hospitality from ‘mr jean’..days i will always cherish. good friends sharing good food in the goodness of mother nature and contributing to fellow durian lovers by sharing the gospel of peak health and vitality.. i entered a running race the evening i arrived here. just busted out a 6km on the beach in 23:54. i was happy with that, cos it was so sandy! i placed about 7th. and the dudes i was talking to after didnt believe ive only ran 165km this year..lol! they thought i was full o shit… ive got a bike...

yesterday i was at the river swimming. i saw a family with obese parents and obese child. he was under 10. i said to parents in a friendly way ‘wow! he is the fattest kid ive ever seen in malaysia! lol!’ i cut thru the hype and went straight for the heart. when someone has so much fat covering their body, so much apathy..you gotta do whatever it takes to get the message accross.i highlighted the situation.i gave em the solution.i do this everyday. we gotta help people raise their standards by showing them how high ours are. show em what is possible. help em help themselves. we live in a society that turns the tv on everynight.to ‘see’ whats wrong, to see whats right.i say ‘smash your tv, and BE whats right and share your might!’lets blow that apathy and ignorance outta sight.if you got heart, you’ll knuckle up for the fight..cos its never wrong to do whats right..raise your standards and help shine the lightcos society is blind and in the darkness of nightwe gotta burn like the sun,and shine so brightcut that cooked string and fly free like a...

raw is as hard as we make it..

take for instance this painting my brother did. complex and full of effort. being raw takes effort initally. you gotta learn the strokes, where to get your paint from, how to clean your brushes etc..but eventually like expression via art, it becomes second nature. we live for it. and it lives for...
