Default Jamie Oliver and Michael Mackenzie

I have just watched Jamie Oliver helping the people of L.A. in America to improve their lives dramatically, by changing their eating habits - very touching to see the people realise how harmful processed, fast food can be. The resistance he received from the boards of people who would not allow him to go into the schools of the children of the future to help them was quite shocking. It was very touching to see him help one lovely family (single father and two sons) learn to cook a meal and sit down together to eat in less time than it took the father to go and get fast food (which they did every night) because of busy lives and not knowing how to cook. Made me think of the power of habits.

Jamie reminded me of a passionate conversation I had with Michael Mackenzie a few years ago - the only difference is Jamie is speaking of helping the body and Michael was speaking of the whole being.

You can click on the link below and scroll down to the video to see what Jamie has to say:-

I believe it is vital that we take responsibility for our own well-being and teach our children to do the same. I wish you much peace and joy

Copied the following from the archives of the Mind, Body and Spirit section for new people who may want to benefit from it:-

The Power of Habit by Dr. Denis Waitley

"You may know me.
I'm your constant companion.
I'm your greatest helper; I'm your heaviest burden.
I will push you onward or drag you down to failure.
I am at your command.
Half the tasks you do might as well be turned over to me. I'm able to do them quickly, and I'm able to do them the same every time,
if that's what you want.

I'm easily managed; all you've got to do is be firm with me.
Show me exactly how you want it done; after a few lessons I'll do it automatically.
I am the servant of all great men and women; of course,
I'm the servant of all the failures as well.
I've made all the winners who have ever lived.
And, I've made all the losers too.

But I work with all the precision of a marvelous computer
with the intelligence of a human being.
You may run me for profit, or you may run me to ruin;
it makes no difference to me.

Take me. Be easy with me, and I will destroy you.
Be firm with me, and I'll put the world at your feet.
Who am I?

I'm Habit!

Habits are replaced, not broken. Habits are like submarines. They run silent and deep. Habits grow by observation, imitation and repetition from cobwebs into cables to strengthen or shackle our lives. First we make our habits, then our habits make us.

Success and failure are both habit-forming. Find mentors and role models with proven track records of success and emulate them."

We often form habits that take care of the way we look on the outside yet we often fail to form the habit of looking inward to take care of what matters most.

Creating the regular habit of meditation allows the harmful habits to be released allowing us to become familiar with a new and healthier way of being.

The power of habit is truly amazing. I am so thankful for the habits of meditation and gratitude - they make life tremendous

Peace, joy and healthy good habits to you

Jamie is a trooper and works hard to help others realize how easy it can be to cook stuff.

In our house we've nicknamed him Jamie Olive Oil, as he seems to use it a the primary ingrediant and as a dressing for almost every dish he does.

Hugs

Giles

Maybe you could just refer to him as Popeye, as I believe he liked a bit of Olive Oil too

I've grabbed by coat and called the taxi....
