Whoa, put the brakes on this world – we want to get the next cab ride out. We've been social media observers for some time now and our conclusion is that the world of Facebook has made us all a little more contrived and 'presented' than we all used to be. How can we all really get to know each other? The more we interact via social media, the more isolated we are becoming as a society. Don't get us wrong, Facebook has been great for a great many things.
One of our songs 'Will I Ever Know?' is about wondering if you'll ever find true love, the love and laughter of a soul-mate lover. But it's not just about romantic love – it can also be about the intimate love of friendship. We reflect all the time about trust and friendship. We believe in being people of our word, reliable, trustworthy – but not in a big egoic 'hey, look at how trusted we are' way, it's more about principles and old Australian values of mateship. And we always expect people around us to do the same.
One simple guideline is to do what you say you are going to do. But the social pressures around social media mean that a lot of people feel like they can't express their authentic selves. How can you build authentic trust with others and have the depth of friendship and love that completes us all when you present a smoke screen? We don't want you to ask: Will I Ever Know? We want you to know.

Happiness and love are not a commodities. Like all the great things in life and nature, they are free. So much of life these days is reduced to a pre-ordered pre-packaged consumeristic palaver – but seriously, the best things in life are free. Hey, let's all just slow down a bit. No, s-l-o-w down a lot.
Today, let's have a laugh with friends or watch the trees grow. In our western world, we can find happiness and love in the simplest of moments. But first we've got to consciously focus our attention in the ever-present now moment. Set up your life for successful happiness moments. Go surfing, play the piccolo, build a world with Lego, practice stand up comedy, play pirate pictionary – happiness in life is made up of series upon series of little quality moments, where you get to define what quality and happiness mean to you.
It's with a touch of sadness that we have woken up today to a world that continues to be in conflict. We – The Neo Now – are such believers in love that we don't see sometimes the suffering that is going on in the world. But we watched the news together tonight and we cried. But we truly know that deep down there is love behind the actions of everyone in this world – we're all just trying to make our way, best we know how. We can all bring a bit of sunshine into someone else's life – try it today, see who comes across your path.
The Neo Now believes in love. Why do we believe so strongly? Because it's the very thing that makes us human. Love connects us, love is a force that drives us ever-onward, it keeps us searching until we find that very feeling we were longing for. To fall in love with someone who loves you is the most wonderful experience known to humanity. And to stay in love, for love to endure throughout time and to know you've got that feeling right because your heart has been feeling bright, that is the fulfilment of a life, and yes, we say its like rainbow coloured dynamite.
