BULLYING IN THE WORKPLACE

In large organisations and institutions eg Local Authority Councils,this head pecking is very frequent. Motivated by negative emotions like jealousy and resentment the impact can be hurt,pain,upset and mental health issues in the victims and the vulnerable. Linked to the pursuit of power and control ,people or groups target those perceived to be different,individualist or outsiders of a peer group or clique. As a retired Union boss i have been on the receiving end of it and represented people who were caught up in the system. Wise to assert yourself or establish psychological coping strategies. My ego-defense mechanism was to retire early from the cauldron of the rat race. You may have an epiphany ,or insight that transcends the morons who indulge in acts of aggression . Doctors are prescribing millions of psychotropic drug tablets to victims of stress at work,and it is so sad when talent is wasted by suicide.

THE MIGRATION OF THE SWALLOWS.

Now late August the families gather ,and hunt the skies for the insects that may help them on the epic migration to Africa as far as Senegal. It is a pattern of behaviour that seems to be intrinsic to the inner being of the bird. Rather like an engram in the psyche of man ,it lives on from one generation and life cycle to the next. The facts are there ,yet remain a mystery in the eyes of mere human scientists. The complexity of nature baffles us,yet i have a deep and profound feeling for the wonder of it all ,and love to see and hear the birds in constant and high pitched communication within the groups. I do not understand the mind and language of a swallow,although it is understood by other animals and birds. You can become mystical in the awesome presence of the natural world.

MATERIALISTIC VALUES

The love of inanimate objects and belief in money as a God are the curse of Capitalism. We need a serious  injection of spiritual values and an emphasis on man before matter. I do find the money ethic ,beyond sufficient means  to be empty and shallow and devoid of meaning. The natural world is my haven ,and as egocentric as i appear to be i put the individual human on a pedastal. On my travels i have encountered many belief systems distorted by corruption where the love of money rules. The corollary is that many peoples are dirt poor and need sufficient funds. Men will continue to wage war as long as humanity colonises the planet,and romantic ideals of peace and harmony are but dreams and abstract concepts. In reality we need to work on the emotional centres of brains,as hell,paradise and heaven are earthbound states of being.-

ESSENTIAL QUALITIES OF A TOP RACING MAN.

A love of life and pigeons is a good starter. Ideally a childhood spent in the company of livestock will be of great help,with some parental support and influence. I prefer rural locations for the background like many of the top marathon men. Head or mental qualities are crucial to maintain years of dedicated focus,enthusiasm and the fanaticism needed to become a great pigeon man. I note that many pull the plug after a hard season and often by June when the key races are around. Ambitions,belief and high standards with a hard work ethic will drive you along nicely. To be outstanding you must be innovative,creative and original and an individualist rather than a team player,since pigeon racing is largely a solo sport. It does help to be competitive ,and perfectionist as well. Then with good fortune and the breeding of able birds you may emerge as a champion one day. The motto is think it do it,and the quintessence of the whole game is psychological.
