The fun is in the climb

It has often been said that the fun is in the climb, I’m not so certain about this one and I would love for some of you out there to send me your thoughts on this. When I have been involved in business endeavours and struggling to get the project off the ground I remember […]

Has lyndon farrington ever lived before?

Have we lived before?

This subject fascinates me; the picture is a row of Tibetan Buddhist prayer wheels. These Buddhists have ceremonies for incarnation, reincarnation and transmigration. Since mankind first developed logical thoughts and language the question has dogged us all, where (if anywhere) we go after death, and is there a possibility that we can live another life. […]

Things lyndon farrington would vote for

Things the whole country would vote for

It’s a strange thing if you look at the things people talk about with friends and relatives that seem so popular yet never seem to be mentioned by any political party. It makes you wonder if one day somebody threw away the fear of political correctness and put some hot potatoes on their manifesto’s such […]

Click your fingers on Christmas day

Here is a simply brilliant story for all young people. Every Christmas day go to the bottom of your garden (or the garden where you are staying) find as quiet a place as you can manage and simply click your fingers, do nothing else. Now try to remember to do the same thing next year […]

The most important thing in the world is family

Without a shadow of a doubt the most important thing in life is family. It is the central binding force of us as human beings. I know very often people fall out with family and there are few things more common than the family feud, but it still doesn’t make it right. How many family […]

People who are rich are bored

I heard someone once say ‘I don’t want to be rich because I’d be bored if I was’ – That comment makes me look at the speaker and decide that in front of me was a person with almost no imagination whatsoever. The time has long gone when all we had to do was go […]

The credit belongs to the man in the arena

One of my favourite passages is by former US President Theodore Roosevelt who said………. “The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; who […]

Religion causes more bloodshed than anything

Religion causes more bloodshed than almost anything else. What a true statement this is, and yet in such a civilised condition that we find ourselves in today it still continues.

Lyndon Farrington's believes judgement is one of the main causes of suffering

Never judge a man

 The story goes……….  Never judge a man unless you have walked five miles in his moccasins It’s a great reminder not to jump to conclusions too quickly. In fact the more I go on I just say to myself don’t even bother trying to judge anyone as the real picture will hardly  ever be revealed. […]
