I discovered meditation somewhat by accident. During a period of ‘garden leave’, and between jobs, I joined a yoga class run by a friend of my wife. I only attended the class for a few weeks before returning to the daily commute of another job in the City. Shortly after starting my new job I complied to a semi-command from my yoga teacher to attend a meditation class in a village near my home in Cambridgeshire.
Why I couldn’t save the Northern White Rhino
AsI write this article there are there are only three Northern White Rhinos left in the world and all these individuals are past reproduction age. Having recently reached the age of 54 years old, I never expected that a large mammal of the scale and majesty of the Northern White Rhino would be allowed to go extinct in my life time. Did I do something wrong? Could I have done more to help? Why couldn’t I save the Northern White Rhino?

However, I do firmly believe that you can improve your level of happiness by joining me in the same belief.
