About Trevor

Bio

Seventy years wise with a fairly permanently switched on zest for life.
My knowable life history has been extrordinarily fortunate, the reason for which seems able to be explained by the constant stream of meetings with people who have expressed love, kindness, dignity, equality,confidence, intelligent, simple discourse and the sharing of optimism about the future.
I feel quite hostile towards questions being asked which 'smack' of an establishment which wants to satisfy burueacratric needs, place everyone in a 'cell' and promote 'snobbery'.
I love to promote the sense of excitement we can all share including gross errors and supreme acheivements. The lesson is in the contrast.

DIE EXCITED!

I'm passionate about

Faith in the human potential for expansion along with the expansion of the Universe.
We would'nt be where we are without it.

Talk to me about

Expanding my understanding of the fact that all that will ever exist already exists and is waiting for humans to discover it.
eg. Newton 'realised' the law of gravity.

People don't know I'm good at

Neither do I !

My TED story

Finding at my age that I benefit greatly from watching the array of inspirational speakers presenting on TED. Everyone tells me something I would not normally come across in life.It has inspired me to attain a level of clarity about the qualities I most cherish and through constantly retaining those thoughts, I am beginning to become fairly similar to them. It is making my future as an elderly person appear quite lovely! Thanks TED. Where else on the planet is there such a generic wealth of intelligence?

Thank you so much Joshua. I totally agree. Profound teachings are mixed in with the every day medium of conversation we live in. I have taken twelve mannerisms which have become blatant to me over the years. Nothing wise, just blatant? My analogy of fish not knowing they are in water is like us not knowing the four agreements. Thanks again.

I must find The Four Agreements". Thanks Joshua. My thing about too many questions hinges on the person who is at the receiving end? My experience with hundreds of people who have some form of dementia has shown me that when relatives who really love their cared for person, " bombard" them with questions, they create a negative reaction. It is the simplest questions which cause them. e.g. would you like a cup tea dear? How are you today dear? Which shirt shall we put on today, has anyone visited you, would you like some food..........etc. It is painful to watch, especially when there are many visitors in the Care Home.

I am sure you are a lovely person and it would be a pleasure to meet for a while. May I respond to the " who decides how many questions are too many?" My own awareness of the recipients behavior together decides. The other thought your response created in me was that; having the knowledge that I am carrying a bag of twelve hand grenades and being aware of their destructive force is like a form of deterrence. Knowing discourages their use, especially in the presence of sensitive people.

Thank you Bob. I liked you response a lot. It had that air of radical warrior about it! My current mental state has become more of a quiet revolutionary. I most certainly did the tail twisting in my warrior days! The deeply satisfying feeling of having a framework, the twelve hand grenades, rather than no framework, is like having a bag full of grenades I will NOT be throwing. Good fun really. Kind regards

I have replied but TED rejected my first contribution? I thought it was a calm polite response. Wander why? I will try again. Throwing any of the twelve hand grenades at a sensitive person causes harm. Not throwing them in any relationship fosters well being. The balance, as you so wisely say, depends upon us. My thinking is that at least we have twelve "pegs" which are conceptually available and with practice, are likely to alleviate conflict. Thank you
