It’s almost impossible not to fall into the trap of materialism. You’ve got to be made of strong stuff not to let it seduce you from time to time.

It’s tougher still when no one understands how

Prince Charles always believed they did. For years the public has laughed at the British Royal for talking to his plants. He was ridiculed for years after being filmed making the following statement on a 1986 documentary filmed about him in the UK. ‘I just come and talk to the plants, really – very important

The study, carried out by a team of psychology researchers in the USA, found that people with the
