Philosophies of life from our Spring Gathering

The Gathering on Sunday May 10 in Haringey Civic Centre. Among serious discussions Dave encouraged us to embark on several group exercises for fun, including some humming and mapping (promising sincerely that we are not a cult).

In the spirit of good fun we each put our philosophies of life on a piece of paper and anonymously read someone else's.

Here they are:
  • A pessimist is an optimist with better information
  • Fairness and understanding
  • Don’t have one
  • Leave everything at least slightly better than you found it
  • Less is more
  • Try to live creating maximum happiness with respect for other people and the environment
  • Do unto others what you would like them to do to you
  • Eat, drink and be merry for tomorrow we die
  • Try to do some good
  • Always act with love in your heart and be the change you want to see
  • Leave the world a better place
  • Campaign for environment and social justice while enjoying love, friendship, nature, culture and laughter
  • People and planet, family and friends, fun and fulfillment
  • Living lightly and working beneficially
  • Be positive and optimistic
  • Better regret something you did than something you did not do
  • The world would be a better place if everything was like compost – slimy smelly rubbish magically transformed into lovely useful stuff (with a smaller volume!)
