A Millionaire's Secret - Give A Piece Of Straw

Posted by patrick

By Masami Sato

A rich man born out of giving!

There is an old historical Japanese tale about giving and it shows how we can receive the most extraordinary gifts when we're giving and appreciative of what we already have.

This is the folk tale.

Once upon a time, there was a poor young farmer. Everything he did in his life never seemed to produce any wealth for him. He was totally broke with no money, no family and no food. So one night he sneaked into a temple and sat by the altar and in desperation asked the Gods what he was supposed to do.

"I have always been honest and hardworking, but all my hard work never produced any reward for me. What am I doing wrong?"

He fell asleep near the altar just after he put the question. When he woke up in the morning, he saw in front of him one of the Gods he had seen in his dream, with a bright golden light around him. The God's voice reverberated in his mind.

"After you wake up in the morning, value that which you have in your hand and keep giving it fully to others as you move forward," the God told him.

The farmer was brimming with questions when he woke up but he tried to shake off his sleep and clear his mind of the strange but clear dream he had. However, he saw a bit of a straw in his hand. It must have remained on his clothes while he worked in his fields.

He almost threw it away, but stopped short of doing it recollecting what God had said about it. He seated himself again and stared at the straw in his hand.

He sat for a long while wondering what that meant. He had no idea how a broken bit of a straw can be of any use to him. Suddenly he saw a wasp buzzing around. The wasp soon alighted on the tip of the straw. He caught hold of the wasp and bound it to the straw with a piece of string from his dress. Thus with a piece of straw with a wasp at one end, he proceeded.

He had gone a little way when he found a small boy and his mother coming towards him from the other end of the road. The boy was weeping. When he said hello to the boy, the child noticed the straw that the man had with a wasp at one end. He stopped his weeping and wanted to have the straw. The farmer was hesitant to give it but then he remembered that God had asked him to value what we owned and also give it to others profusely. So he gave the straw to the boy. The mother was relieved as the boy stopped crying when he got the straw and the wasp. In return she gave the man three tangerines.

The farmer moved on. As he proceeded, he felt hungry. He was about to eat the tangerines when he again remembered that what was important was giving things to others, not giving it to himself.

He had to climb a steep hill and there he saw a trader sitting on the earth under a tree. Near the man was a wooden box. The farmer wished the trader who seemed to be very tired. The trader saw the tangerines the farmer had and asked if he could have them. The trader said he was very thirsty.

The farmer was also equally thirsty as the day was hot and he had walked pretty long, still he gave all the three tangerines to the trader. The man ate all the three tangerines and felt fully energized. He felt very thankful to the farmer who was so kind. To show his gratitude, he opened the box that he had kept near him. The box contained several bolts of hand dyed silk. The trader took out one roll, gifted it to the farmer and left.

The farmer walked again and continued on the same path. After a while he found a river from which he drank water. He felt recharged. He went forward with more energy and a feeling of ease.

The farmer walked and walked not seeing anyone for a long time. He started to think that maybe this was it - his fortune. So, he decided to go to the nearby town to sell the fabric.

But just as he went around the corner, he saw in front of him a band of fighters. One of the fighters who looked liked the head of the band stood near a horse that was lying on the earth. The farmer heard the leader talking to his men.

"It does not appear that this horse would live much. We will have to leave it here. Nurse it well and catch up with me." With this the leader jumped on to another horse and rode off, moving out of people's sight.

The fighters who remained there conferred among themselves as to what to do. They had no interest in putting it to death but there was no other option. Finally one of them drew the sword.

The farmer quickly ran over to them and asked them to stop. He said he would like to look after the horse. He also offered the silk fabric to the warriors. They jumped at the offer and took off very quickly.

With the dying horse by his side, the farmer just remained there. He wondered if he had done things wrongly and whether he would never become rich. Suddenly he remembered the river he had seen on the way.

He made his way to the river and once there stripped off his shirt and dipped it in water to be able to feed the horse. He made his way back to the horse again and fed it by squeezing out the water into its mouth. After the water trickled in for a while, the horse reacted and soon became conscious. The farmer was then able to pull it up and make it stand.

Once the horse could stand, the farmer was able to take it to the river. The horse drank directly from the river and the farmer also led it to the patches of grass nearby. Very soon the animal was rejuvenated.

So now the farmer owned the horse! The man and the animal traveled together, and the farmer had to run as the horse led the way. They traveled together for miles. Finally, as the sun was setting, the horse came to a halt in front of a big house. The animal pushed the farmer towards the gate when he finally drew level with it.

As the farmer approached the gate, the doors swung open and to his surprise, an old man appeared. The old man was rushing outside and was looking a little pale. He noticed the farmer and the horse standing by the gate.

The old man asked the farmer what he was doing. The farmer said he was looking for a place to stay the night. The old man said he was going to the town for an urgent matter. He asked the farmer if he minded looking after his house until he returned. He said he might not be able to come back for a little while.

Since the old man appeared to be in a hurry, the farmer said that he can use the horse. The old man felt glad about the gesture and accepted the offer. He left with the horse but before he left told the farmer something strange.

"If I do not come back in three years' time, this house belongs to you."

As you possibly deduced, the old man did not come back.

The farmer lived in the large house for the rest of his life with a land full of crops surrounded by kind neighbors happily ever after. But he never forgot to always give away the things he had.

Thank you for going through this story. And what is the message that it contains?

Perhaps there is a secret to things. When we can turn the business of getting into the business of giving, our life gushes forward with greater plentitude. Still it might not be easy to incorporate into practical life this age old wisdom.

Here are some of the interesting distinctions we can find in this story :

* When we give the things that others want, they usually value it more than we value it while when we are trying to 'sell' something (because fundamentally, we want to get something from the deal), they compare the value with our asking price and try to pay less.

* When we are not possessive of whatever we have, we will perceive that we thereby have more chances as we can release the existing possessions.

* When life seems to deal us a bad hand, instead of focusing on the problem if instead we focused on giving and caring, life seems to end up bringing better luck later.

* If we try to turn into cash what we have accumulated, because of the conviction that "this is all it would get" thinking that if we do not encash it, we will lose, our life will stand still. Instead, why don't we keep on giving more and more irrespective of what we have or whether we are actually rich or not.

Gifting is an inherent part of the lives of most winners. When we are ready to give first, we have better chances of living a life of perfection, ease and growth.

Connection: The Secret To Happiness

Posted by patrick

By Masami Sato

Why do we live? What are we here for? Day after day we asked these questions of the purpose and meaning of our lives. And most of us constantly look for the answer. How can we achieve happiness? This is yet another question urging us to look for its answer every day. What if the answer to those questions is simple? What if it is all simply about ONE thing? Connection. The secret of happiness is explained thoroughly in the clear and refreshing voice of Masami Sato in this excerpt of her book, ONE.

What are we searching for?

There are so many things that we carry out in our lives.

But have we ever thought about why we do what we do? What are we really looking for?

The world now is full of billions of us coming from different races, countries, religions and beliefs all doing different things. We all look different and act quite differently. We have different interest and attitude from others. We communicate differently often using different languages. We have different desire and feelings.

However, if we were to say there is just ONE thing we are ALL looking for, what would it be?

While I journeyed all over the world, I asked people a seemingly straightforward question, "What would you like to achieve in your life? What do you really want?"

At first, it seemed everyone was looking for different things as they randomly said, "Good job", "My own house", "A nice partner", "A loving family", "A soul mate", "More money", "Wealth". "Freedom", "Peace of mind", "A life purpose" There were many more answers.

I did notice that some of these requirements were of a more earthly nature while others were of a permanent nature. Earthly desires are those that we want because we do not yet have it, or think that we do not yet have it. As against this, permanent desires are not about getting things we do not have. It is about a 'feeling' that we yearn for, so that it does not come to an end, whatever we get or accomplish at every moment or our lives.

If one could just remove all earthly desires from our list and look at only permanent desires, it would be obvious that we just want to continue feeling positive sensations like excitement, happiness, inspiration, motivation, munificence, affection, joy etc. - put in other words, we want to continue being happy.


Happiness is one state of emotion that we are all longing to be in. We all may define it differently. We may value it differently. We may experience it at different levels of intensity. But we surely have something in common when happiness comes to us. And when we discover this secret about happiness, we hold the power to be happier, and to make others around us experience the same feeling too.

This life, that we live, is a mystery. All of us like it in our own different ways. We may also dislike it in different ways. We may wonder about it. We may cherish it. Or we may just accept it in an offhand manner. But what is the ultimate purpose of this life? What if the mystery of our existence is at hand? What if its revelation actually brings us happiness and fulfilment when we come face to face with it?

What if the essence of the aim of our lives, and its joys, is as simple as this:

It is all about relationship.

Bonding is everything

Everything depends on bonding. All things are part of some other things. A look at our own lives would say it all. Then we will begin to see the real purpose of life.

Why do we do something, ANYTHING at all, in life as human beings?

It is simply because we want to connect more and more. We make friends to feel connected. We get married to connect with someone more deeply and more permanently. We create a family to feel even more connected. We go out to meet more people to connect with, not only to get practical benefits from those connections, but also to feel more connected to the world.

We buy good clothes or go to a hairdressing saloon for a better relationship with our aesthetical sense and to our own physical appearance. We eat all types of food to feel more connected to the sense of taste and flavour. We eat out to feel the relationship to the people we dine with. We get mobile phones and computers to weave relationships with others and the world. We read magazines and newspapers to remain in touch with whatever is going on and what others are doing and experiencing. We educate ourselves to keep in touch with what others know and value.

Every thing that we do is to satisfy the need of keeping alive relationships. It is our relationship to our own body that makes it imperative that we eat and sleep. Because of our relationship to our senses, we are asked to do things to satisfy the demands that body makes. If we ignore the demands that body makes, we have to bear the resultant aches and distress. And above our mundane needs, we yearn for another relationship - a relationship to our very existence - a relationship to our purpose. And without that connection, it is vacant. Just like the blankness so many of us feel when we have no relationship even to ourselves. That is just not the way our lives are supposed to be lived.

Connection is powerful, and yet it's fragile and tender

When we cannot feel the intimacy in a relationship, we opt for separation, divorce, quarrels, judgement, and disapproval. It never feels good to lose the intimacy in a relationship. Nevertheless, it is possible to fall in love with someone one day and fall out of love with the same person the next day. The feeling can alter just by a flick of a finger. And the flick might be by your finger or theirs!

When we feel disconnected

When the relationship is not there, we start seeing problems. We start seeing differences and hindrances. We start sitting upon judgement of others and disapproving them. We exaggerate, concentrate upon, and give energy to such things that we see as problems. Under such a scenario, these problems might turn inwards and inflict pain and disapproval on ourselves. We cannot be fully happy when we have no associations with anything.

Relationship: the Secret to Happiness

What if we are looking at the whole idea from the other end? When we do it, we realize this simple reality: we cannot feel miserable when the bonds are strong. It is just not possible!

Try to feel grouchy when we have a good relationship with the people around us and smiling and sharing things completely. Even when we have 'problems' in life, we can still smile together and feel delighted when we are bound together in a good relationship. At the same time, it is hard to be happy if we do not have that edifying relationship.

Bonding: Our Life

Relationship is the core of everything. That is what life is. Relationship.

Everything is a unified whole of smaller units. Everything combines together to form a bigger unit; the way our bodies are a fusion of smaller entities like atoms, molecules, cells and organs.

Our actions and choices also express the need for connection. We are designed to constantly seek ways to connect to each other and to a greater purpose.

Bonding and Religion

Some of us choose to be part of different religions to feel more connected. The connection they seek could be to God. It could be to the people with the same belief. When we share the same belief, it creates a stronger sense of bonding within that group of people. More giving happens naturally among people who are feeling connected to each other.

Connection and Business

Many people begin an enterprise to feel better bonded to themselves by being in control of their fate. But often in the entrepreneurial world, we end up being more and more segregated especially when we start viewing other ventures as contenders, staff as instruments and customers as a money flow. But the basic point of why we got into the venture was to feel the power of that bonding. So, why do we need to fashion that disconnection at all? May be in the perfect world, all business ventures worked differently, but hand in hand.

Relationship and Wars

Some of us even create arguments or wars to experience some sense of 'victory' or supposedly a greater sense of security and significance. But ironically, this rebounds. The moment we 'win' the battle, we are actually more disconnected from others. We now need more security to protect ourselves from being attacked by others. We somehow end up being more insecure and afraid. We can't laugh at this because it actually happens to almost every one of us in different ways.

It may be the arguments we have with people around us. It may be the negative judgement we make when we feel something or someone is wrong. When we try to be the only one to win, we can never win in the real way-we feel disconnected. We can only truly celebrate the victory with others when we win together. Then we feel connected.

Despite the myriad ways in which we communicate our wants, everything we do is to fulfil the longing we have to feel and have strong bonds.

The full sense of a bonding is realized only through our heart. We can bond with anybody when we are truly concerned about them and feeling that bond with them. If we are conscious of this, giving life to that required state of mind is really easy, uncomplicated and a pleasure. Then we would actually feel more delight and joy.

Life is just like a game. We experience things and do things in a game but fundamentally, the aim of any game is to enjoy. It is not about doing things or having things. When the game finally ends, the winners are only the ones who enjoyed the game. Not the ones who had more at the end. The results and outcomes of a game we play don't affect our true life. But if we lost all our friends to play with during a game just because we wanted to be the winner in this round, would it lead us to the real winning game?

It is so easy to understand this in the example of playing a game, but we often become blind in our own everyday game called life. We forget so easily that it is also just a game.

Even if we don't know when this game actually started and when it would end, we know that it somehow started in the past and it will end someday. When we close the lid of the game box eventually one day, can we simply say, "Wow, it was so much fun. Let's play again!"

In this game called life, the aim of the game is to 'connect'. We can keep connecting until we all become one. It is the only way to continuously feel connected to our purpose-sense of happiness and joy. We cannot feel disconnected to anything or deny and judge even one thing if we are to achieve the state of total connection.

Life is as easy as that. There is only ONE secret.

And the secret is to bond.

To grow into ONE

To relish.

Discover The Easy Way To Earn Money

Posted by patrick

By Robert Hall

I don't know about you but looking at current events and the newspapers makes it look like it's impossible to get rich at this day and age. It's like you should be grateful if you are able to earn money enough to fulfill you and your family's needs and anything more than that is being lucky.

Friend, that is not true. In fact, thinking this way will be detrimental to achieving a wonderful quality of life you can have. It is ironic that we spend so much on schools and education and these very institutions fall short in effectively teaching people the correct principles on how to make money today.

Money is not reserved for people who come from good families, have the right connections and possess extra ordinary talents. Granted, you can be born into wealth but anybody can get rich- that includes you.

Think about it, there have been so many people who have become rich despite adverse circumstances that they grew up in. Take Oprah Winfrey. She had a lot of things going against her but her personality and force of will enabled her to defy the prevailing culture then, build wealth and solidify herself in history.

It's important that we understand one important concept today-it is easy to earn money. How can that be with so many needy and helpless people around? The answer to that is because we have a mistaken idea on how to make money and become rich in the world.

You don't get wealth by belonging in the right gender, age or even nationality. It starts from the inside and manifests into your reality. Wealth begins in your mind. Develop your prosperity consciousness and riches will start to make its presence felt in your current reality.

Ingrain prosperity consciousness within you. Doing so will let you think and behave in aid of your conviction that you will be rich. Purpose to be an excellent worker in all that you do because money is the compensation of an above average work output. Make it your aim to give a high quality of life to people and that it what you will get as well.

Build wealth by tapping into the power inside of you. Watch your thoughts and the attitude you have in every situation you find yourself facing. Abide by the principles we have discussed and your life will substantiate the truth that it is indeed, an easy thing to earn money and be rich.

What is Hypnosis and How it Helps Humanity

Posted by patrick

By Ray Bonanza

Hypnotism is recognized as a heightened period of suggestibility which enables the subject to interact positively to the suggestions of the hypnotiser. This mental state is normally evoked with the cooperation of the subject by another individual - the hypnotist. Induction commands or suggestions plays a respectable role in causing hypnosis and can be administered by the subject or the hypnotist.

The induction executed by the subject is referred to as self hypnosis. And when used for remedial purposes, it is normally called hypno-therapy. These are modern facts about hypnotism that is agreeable among most hypnotists and psychologists. One of the most familiar misconception is that a hypnotic state is tantamount to unconsciousness or sleep. Even So, this is far from true and in fact, the subject is conscious and in a state of very focused attention even though peripheral cognizance is importantly weakened.

In the beginning, hypnosis was connected to animal magnetism and mesmerism and after many decades saw it being realigned away from them. In 1843 a Scottish physician and surgeon called James Braid, was the first to bring attention to the hypnotic state. In his book Neurypnology, Braid represented hypnotism as a state of pure physical relaxation accompanied and induced by mental concentration though he later disposed this description as misleading.

Hypnotic induction is usually used by hypnotists as an opening to produce a state of hypnosis. This technique is applied to the subject in order to stimulate a complete state of relaxation in the subject. While it is not always needed, yet it is well admired as one of the most effective and common tools in a hypnotist's tool kit. There are numerous types of hypnotic induction techniques used by hypnotists to intensify client expectation, re-define their roles and create focused attention, to name a few. One of the most common technique is the eye fixation technique originally used by Braid and it is still widely used today. You also have the reclining posture, relaxation of muscles and also optical fixation succeeded by eye closure.

Hypnosis is extremely regarded in creating several medical and therapeutic benefits. It is widely practised as hypno-therapy for that reason and assists in easing of pain, managing skin diseases, weight control, reducing anxiety, psychological therapy, habit control and can also enhance performance in sports. Hypnosis can provide some required benefits to all human psychological, emotional problems and sicknesses.

It is a dishonor that a great majority only knows hypnosis as stage entertainment or amusement through television and movies. Several of the bad reputation attached to hypnosis can be ascribed to this mis-use. The most popular misconception is that hypnosis is mind control, which is a far cry from the truth. As Luck Would Have It, the credibility of hypnosis and its applications has improved vastly in the last decade. This improvement will continue to increase as research is also affirming its usefulness in the handling of several ailments and diseases.

20 Bucks and 11 Minutes - Will Change Your Life

Posted by patrick

By Dr. Jay Polmar

Spend twenty dollars, and 11 minutes of your time - it will change your life in ways you never imagined.

Yes you are reading this right. In only 11 minutes, you will hear my story, and learn 3 secrets to improving your life through .... Reading. I am sure you know how to read, after all you are reading this article. But just how long will it take you to read this short article. 2 minutes, 5 minutes, longer.

If you are a smart person, you already know what I am talking about - learning how to use your brain properly so that what you read becomes usable data, and knowledge to help you create greater success in life.

Today a story came out on Mexico's national television, of a woman who was imprisoned for shooting her husband because he beat her, and repeatedly sold her to her friends for sexual use and beat her if she refused. Well, she just killed him and went to prison.

In penitentiary, for the first time in her life - she was exposed to books of all kinds. She knew she did wrong but she had years to pay for her mistake and her repayment was to ready and study and enter university through the prison system to study to become a lawyer.

So -- the more you read of a similar subject, the faster you read that subject. The faster you read the subject that you are familiar with, the more that it becomes a part of your long-term memory. That's why when you first study basic primary school math, and you follow it and study smart, and go all the way through college - math is a thing that you become accustomed to. If you've studied really smart, it's really easy, and you can do some of it in your head without calculator or paper and pen.

It's also the same with reading, yet different. Imagine it this way - we teach you in 11 minutes how to read all kinds of materials more rapidly with greater comprehension than before, and get what you need out of it. Of course, it a beginners course, but in 11 minutes your increased your reading speed say 60-80% and as you use the techniques over the next few days the speed increase, and so does your understanding and comprehension.

Once you've spent $20 and studied for 11 minutes you will accomplish a great deal. But, what if you learned also, how to read a book for ultimate understanding and comprehension for test-taking or pleasure, and what if you also learn to write a paper for school, or grad school - without stress in 10 days or less, would that make your life easier.

In 11 minutes flat, you will improve the quality of your life for 20 bucks, you really can't lose. Remember also, the more you read, the better you read, the more you remember - that's how the brain works. So work your brain.

Most corporate millionaires now read two or three business related books every week. Thats a lot of work for those unfortunates who don't have speed reading abilities.

SPEED READING enables people to absorb up to twice or three times what they normally read in the same time.

Reading researchers in the past determined that the brain is capable of comprehending and cataloging from 10,000 to 50,000 units of information every minute. The length of a unit is about one word. The body's five senses are receptors for information, which it transfers to the subconscious mind to be recorded for posterity. When the conscious mind needs information, it is recalled from the subconscious. Then it surfaces the necessary data for processing and use, much like a computer.

An interactivity exists between the brain, which well just imagine is the computer CPU, and the mind which consists of thoughts and memories. All information gets processed in such a way that we can learn it.

The data that we receive, process and evaluate comes from our five physical senses. With that data, our mind makes decisions, choices and judgments. We learn through our five senses (i.e. sight, smell, hearing, touch, taste), which are already pre-programmed to respond automatically.

A good example of pre-programmed response: Consider the example of the teen boy who smells pizza and what his reaction is. It is similar to Pavlov's dog, because his senses send a message to the brain in the form of a brain-work.

The perception of sensing our favorite food is a mental exercise, compared to the reaction of swallowing which is physical. Hence, brain and mind is where the action is and the body is where the reaction is.

Learning this system of speed reading will encourage the use of three of the five senses. That is a method that will strongly influence your mind to remember, recall and understand; beyond that, well teach you techniques for becoming a better and more efficient reader.

Follow the instructions and you will turn into a speed reader who loves to read and improve the quality of his or her own life. We expect great, positive successes from you with great improvements in many areas of your life.

Statistics: The average American high school graduate (I know this sounds strange, but many are graduating without the ability to read at an eighth grade level), reads at about 200 words per minute. A college student reads 20% faster at 300 words per minute. It does not matter what your baseline or starting reading speed is, your potential reading speed after using these techniques will be faster and your potential is truly unlimited. This is because scientists who have researched the human brain/mind agree that our potential is unlimited. Double-triple-quadruple your reading speed, theres no limit.

You can expect to learn how to achieve your greatest potentials as a reader, business person, student, etc. This is because you're becoming an avid speed reader and a complete success in life.

Be Dynamic Through Speed Reading will help you become totally unlimited in your power and ability to do, be, and have all that you want in life, whether its great grades or financial success. Dr. Jay Polmar is the Master of the art of speed learning, accelerated learning and speed reading and has helped over 100,000 students worldwide become perfect learning machines.

Selecting A C Programming Course - News

Posted by patrick

By Jason Kendall

With an abundance of computer courses to choose from, it can be mind-boggling to find the right one. Go for one that's on a par with your personal character, and that will be a useful asset in the commercial world.

There's a big selection with these training programs - from Microsoft User Skills right up to training programs for web designers, networkers programmers etc. Take some counsel before you dive in - talk to an advisor with experience in commercial IT. Someone who can help you select the ideal job path for you - that's both relevant to industry and will prepare you for a career you'll enjoy.

By concentrating on service and delivery, there are now companies offering up-to-the-minute courses that have great quality training and assistance for much lower prices than those expected from the old-style trainers.

Authorised exam preparation and simulation materials are essential - and really must be supplied by your training company.

Steer clear of relying on non-accredited exam papers and questions. The type of questions asked is sometimes startlingly different - and this could lead to potential problems once in the actual exam.

Mock exams will prove very useful as a resource to you - so much so, that at the real thing, you don't get phased.

Students hoping to kick off an Information Technology career often don't know which path they should take, let alone what market to get certified in.

How can we possibly grasp the day-to-day realities of any IT job if we've never been there? Often we don't even know anybody who performs the role either.

Consideration of many issues is vital if you need to expose a solution that suits you:

* Which type of individual you are - what tasks do you enjoy doing, and on the other side of the coin - what you definitely don't enjoy.

* Why you're looking at stepping into computing - it could be you're looking to conquer a life-long goal such as self-employment maybe.

* Is your income higher on your wish list than anything else.

* There are many markets to choose from in the IT industry - you'll need to pick up some background information on what makes them different.

* Having a good look at how much time and effort you can give.

In actuality, you'll find the only real way to research these matters will be via a meeting with a professional who has experience of Information Technology (as well as the commercial needs.)

Kick out any salesperson that just tells you what course you should do without performing a 'fact-find' so as to understand your abilities and level of experience. Always check they have access to a wide-enough range of products so they're actually equipped to solve your training issues.

In some circumstances, the training inception point for a student experienced in some areas is often massively different to someone just starting out.

If you're a new trainee embarking on IT studies from scratch, it's often a good idea to avoid jumping in at the deep-end, kicking off with some basic PC skills training first. Usually this is packaged with most types of training.

A fatal Faux-Pas that potential students often succumb to is to choose a career based on a course, instead of focusing on the desired end-result. Schools have thousands of students who took a course because it seemed fun - instead of the program that would surely get them the job they want.

Avoid becoming part of that group that choose a course that seems 'fun' or 'interesting' - and end up with a certification for something they'll never enjoy.

It's well worth a long chat to see what industry will expect from you. What particular qualifications you'll need and how to gain experience. It's also worth spending time considering how far you wish to build your skill-set as it will often present a very specific set of accreditations.

We'd recommend you seek guidance and advice from a professional advisor before settling on a particular learning programme, so there's little doubt that a program provides the skills necessary.

The Origin of Halloween

Posted by patrick

By John Scott

Halloween is a holiday celebrate by thousands upon thousands of teens and even adults. While not every country keeps the Halloween tradition, hundreds of thousands of children can be found trick-or-treating in the United States and in many other especially those of Anglo-Saxon background. While some love Halloween, there are some who are just as passionately in opposition to this holiday. Interesting are the pagan origins of the celebration the history of which stretches back thousands of years to the ancient pagans who existed even before Jesus' day.

Here are some historical facts about the origin of Halloween:

Halloween's roots date back to the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain. It is said to have commenced with the Celts. The Celts lives around 2,000 years ago in what is now the United Kingdom, Ireland and northern France. The celebration at that time was on November 1 or October 31.

The idea was associated with the the beginning of the cold winter, dark and associated with fear of death. Celts had superstitious ideas and truly believed that on the night before, the boundaries between the world of the living and dead became blurred. They believed that the ghosts of lives of the dead returned to the earth or revisited their homes. In addition to the malevolence associated with these bad spirits, Celts felt that the presence of these spirits made it easier for the priests to predict the future. These prophecies were help much importance for largely illiterate, such as the Celts. They celebration took on sinister significance, with hobgoblins which were believed to be roaming about on that spooky evening.

People burned bonfires on hilltops to scare off evil spirits and demons, and people sacrificed both crops and animal sacrifices to pagan Celtic gods. Costumes were worn during these ceremonies, and they usually consisted of animal heads and skins.

The name Halloween has its origins in the Catholic Church. By the ninth-century, the festival had been influenced the mixture of paganism and Christianity that had become a part of Catholicism. Immigrants then brought the customs associated with Halloween to the United States, . These then became popular around the late nineteenth century. Halloween has always been a holiday of evil. Because of the forgoing reasons and the history of Halloween, many Christians of various genres, do not celebrate the holiday.

Regression Hypnosis - What Is It All About?

Posted by patrick

By Richard Lumb

What is regression hypnosis? It's a form of hypnotherapy that helps you go into your past and discover things that you may know in your subconscious, but will not recognize in your conscious mind. Oftentimes, you can use this therapy to help you figure out negative experiences from your past. If you want to rediscover your past lives, you can also use regression hypnosis to do this.

What is past life regression and how does regression hypnosis work?

Regression hypnosis works similarly to other types of hypnosis. The subject of the hypnosis is put under hypnosis by a trained therapist. The subject is then led back through a past life with careful suggestion, done by the therapist.

Hypnosis can help you unlock your subconscious mind's memory, because it helps you go "underneath" your active conscious mind. You can see, then, what is held in secret within your own mind.

Relieving Trauma through Regression Hypnosis

Regression hypnosis is often used to help people work through a traumatic experience in their past. People who have suffered from something traumatic may feel a lasting impact that can cause problems for them throughout their life.

With regression hypnosis, you're hypnotized by the therapist and then are taken back to the event in your life. At that point, you are led through the event such that you can come to terms with it and then get on with your life.

Regression hypnosis can help a person to build their self-esteem, fix emotional problems, heal from abuse, release pent up emotions and stop fears or phobias. It can be a very powerful process that allows people to come to grips with something bad that happened in their past.

Seeking Past Lives

Regression hypnosis can also help you find out more about past lives you've lived. Called "past life regression," some therapists don't accept this as a mainstream therapy, but it's still relatively common among therapists as a practice.

People sometimes want to search or discover their past lives in an effort to help them understand their current life. People who believe in past lives believe that these past lives are connected to their current life and have a profound effect on what is happening to them right now.

These people believe that by discovering their past lives they can learn what they need to do in this life to avoid mistakes they made in the past or what they need to do in this life to prevent repeating what went wrong in their past life. Through regression hypnosis they explore their past lives and learn about who they were and what happened in these past lives.

Regardless of why you are interested in using regression hypnosis, there is plenty of proof that it can be very helpful. People use regression hypnosis often to help them uncover things that happened in their past or their past lives and then use these discoveries to improve their life right now.

Even though hypnosis still isn't completely accepted as a viable form of therapy, it hasn't shown to be very effective and may indeed be beneficial to you if you think your past is holding you back from a better life, now.

Why Everyone Should Try Having A Past Regression

Posted by patrick

By John Paul Harding

As reincarnation gains ever more acceptance in our society, you may have been hearing about something called past life regression. This is exactly what the name implies; and it is something that a growing number of people are interested in. When we know more about our past lives, it gives us insight into our lives in the here and now.

If you would like to try past life regression, the best first step is to keep a journal of your past lives. This journal will be your workbook as you put together the pieces of your former lives. It can contain any of the thoughts and emotions which you see as being out of context in your present life as you know it; even the seemingly most trivial of things can actually be important clues. Your emotions are an especially strong indicator. If you have any fears which seem irrational to you or you are inexplicably drawn to certain places or things, these are likely to be very important details.

A past lives journal could begin as a list of things you like and do not like, fears, favorite foods, places and other cultural details. You should also note any predispositions and talents you may have - anything which says something about who you are may turn out to be important as you decipher the clues to your past lives.

You may also want to write down some of the details of your dreams in your journal; but remember that much of what appears in your dreams is likely to be taken from your present life.

Past life regression is another option.

Often, this will mean a session with a professional past life regression therapist. These people are trained in using hypnosis to guide you through a regression experience and help you to understand the information you gain from the session. While many choose to go to a professional, self-hypnosis may also work for you.

Meditation is another technique which is used to learn about past lives.

Many of us find it difficult at first to experience a past life regression through meditation. Since we are aware that our minds can play tricks on us and often skeptical about the idea of regression, it is not uncommon to have to learn to overcome your tendency to disbelieve yourself.

If you are new to the practice, meditation may feel much like daydreaming; but the images and other information receives about past lives as you meditate can be accurate and valuable. You should write down everything about your experience in your past lives journal so you can compare this against the rest of your notes.

Those who have some difficulty meditating often find aids including visual focal points, incense or relaxing music or sounds to be helpful. There are guided meditation tapes you can try as well as recordings of relaxing natural soundscapes.

Binaural beats are something else you can try.

Binaural beats are an audio technology which uses certain frequencies to attune your brainwaves to achieve a deep state of meditation in a short time. Whether you choose this or another aid to your meditations, you do need to select a quiet place to meditate which is free of distractions. Lie down or sit and get comfortable, keeping your thoughts positive as you relax your body.

You need to relax your muscles and clear your mind. When one of those thoughts of your everyday concerns comes through, simply acknowledge it and move on. It may take several tries before you can successfully meditate, but you will get there - and the answers to your questions about past lives may start coming to you.

Using past life regression techniques can also assist you in dealing with problems you have in the present day. Many people find that they have had the same people around them in more than one lifetime; the past may hold clues to managing interpersonal relationships in the present.

A large number of the world's religious traditions include reincarnation among their beliefs, particularly the Karmic religions of South Asia. Jains, Hindus, Sikhs and Buddhists all believe that your actions in every lifetime influence the circumstances you will be born into the next time around. What this teaches us is that having an understanding of your past lives can be the key to living better right now.

Regression has to be done with an open mind to the possibilities the practice opens up. You need to be willing to take in what comes to you and open to learning from your past mistakes to change your current life for the better.

Experts say that re-experiencing some of the events of a past life can be a powerful tool for overcoming mental blocks and giving you a better outlook towards your life and the world around you.

Learning about past lives lets you prevent yourself from making the same mistakes all over again - and use what you learn to improve not just your own life, but the world around you.

Another benefit of regression is that you may, as have many others, discover a talent you never knew you had! Seeing yourself doing something in a past life may be a clue to a talent you need only to bring out of its latent state to share with the world.

As long as you have an open mind and are ready to learn from your past lives, there are many benefits which past life regression may hold for you.

Need Corporate Capital Fast? Your First Call Should Be To A Turnaround Consultant

Posted by patrick

By James Scott

Most companies who are on the venture capital trail are not set up properly to attract investors. When an investor looks at your business plan and private placement memorandum they are looking for certain things. Of course funding sources look for the obvious, a solid business model, positive cash flow, industry genre with solid future growth, recession proof business (if there even is such a thing) and minimal debt.

Countless companies are turned down for funding because they lack the basics such as: an advisory board, board of directors, solid executive staff with a well groomed pedigree, reasonable share price, business plan and PPM that spell out the risks for the investor and an original marketing strategy that covers all the angles. These are just a few of the most common mistakes that companies make out of naivety and by not taking the time to hire an expert to properly structure them to make the entity appeal to investors.

Seasoned expansion and turn-around consultants can step into a company and immediately zone in on the issues that will hinder a client's investment magnetism. Often times it only takes 2 to 3 weeks to completely reorganize a company to make it stand out like a beacon in the turbulent finance industry. If you are seriously considering the idea of raising capital with a private placement memorandum, traditional institutional loans, venture capital or a public offering don't be penny wise and dollar foolish.

Spend some money and hire a consultant who is completely submerged in the finance industry to take control of the elements of your corporation that are seen as 'black eyes' to investors so that you can achieve the capital you're seeking.

The reality is, raising capital for your company is easy and straight forward if you've taken the time to examine your business objectively and sought out the expert analysis of an industry expert consultant who will run your company through a formula and make the necessary changes to increase your ability to raise capital.

2012 - The Mayan Prophesy

Posted by patrick

By Dr. Jay Polmar

The big hullabaloo from Roland Emmerich's film 2012, and all the disaster films we've been seeing for the last 50-60 years or so is scaring the heck out of viewers. So badly are they scared of the end that they are watching the same movies of disaster, over and over, with different actors, different titles, and different producers - all aimed to scare you and empty your pockets.

The World Isn't Coming To An End, it's just scary Hollywood, or Horrorwood - as some label it.

Let's get real. Let's discuss some of the pin-point targets:

1. The World Will End With Planetary Alignment and the repositioning of the Earth along the Galactic Equator - .... R-I-G-H-T! The phenomena of placement of the stars and galaxies in space is not new. These things have occurred before, and it wasn't the end of the world. Actually, the date predicted, Winter Solstice, 2012 is not as significant as other astronomical phenomena happening before this. This is just fear-mongering of the formerly unemployed ' of the world writers' with nothing better to do than create movies to scare the bejesus out of little kids.

2. The Mayan Prophesy - there is no known prophesy that the world is coming to an End and whoever said that should know that it can't be. The records of the Maya civilization were effectively destroyed, like all other Meso-American histories by the Conquering Spanish, and what was kept - was kept in secret archives to keep the truth away from the public because it would destroy the Catholic Church. The evidence indicated that the majority of the Meso-American population was, in fact, the lost tribes of Israel. This was written by Franciscan Monks at the time of the invasion, and British and other archeologists later. The actual Mayan Prophesy was simple - 'Live naturally, in natural time, or your biosphere (Earth - our mother ship) would not survive. We'll we did it. No lying about that. For the past umpteen years, we have been just like conquerors, raping, murdering, and killing mother earth. OOPS! I didn't do it - you didn't do it - the politicians allowed it - all for greed. Oil, Gold, Silver - rape the earth suffers the consequences. The end date of the Mayan Calendar had nothing to do with the end of the planet, it had to do with the end of an era.

2a. Note that when the Earth was first inhabited there was something of a 3 degree axis tilt and the planet was green, and water blue, and life was abundant. What by the name of God have we done to our mother?

2b. YIKES, we're at 23 degree wobble now. Yes, something is happening, changes are occurring, but it's not the end. It scares people to think that changes are coming - people fear change. CHANGE IS GOOD!

2c. Do you think that people will die? Of course, people are already dying. Yes, we've burned fossil fuels, destroyed our air, cut down our forests, created deserts where there were none before and previously the planet cleansed itself with great floods. People are dying, we are more aware since Hurricane Katrina, that things are not right due to global warming, and Tsunamis, great floods, and thousands more deaths in countries where floods were a rarity.

2d. Species are dying. Faster than ever before species are disappearing. One indication that might be considered, or two, are the frog population which began disappearing a few years back, and the bees. We are impacting nature and we don't step lightly - our footprint is huge and visible, and we are destroying all of life without mistreatment of our mother.

2e. Now there are more diseases, more horrible, more incurable - a sick society and planet produce all forms of diseases.

3. It's human nature - It's obvious that the nature of the human being is to conquer. The continuous development of warfare, atomic, and nuclear weaponry is solely aimed at the destruction of mankind and hurting the planet. Previously, we had been the only big bully playing with nukes, now every schoolyard bully has them and someone is likely to play war games just to demonstrate my 'thingie' is bigger than your 'thingie'.

3a. Believing in the world's Ancient Religions - I must mention this, because this is the greatest manipulation of human beings' behavior on Earth. Sorry, priests, ministers, rabbis, I honor you all for what you know, but your DOGMA is not helping the situation. Each one of you has chosen an individual branch as path of the Tree of Life, and none of you are on the Expressway to God. Please stop telling your people they are sinners - as men of God, many of you have been caught with your own pants down around your ankles and some honey taking some money for some SINFUL and LUSTFUL experience you needed to have. You dirty old sinner you. It may not have been you, but we all know of whom I speak. I am not judging you - just stop judging others and stop playing the blame game which results in guilt. As you know - guilt has absolutely no survival value, it is responsible for many illnesses that do not resolve and result in death. Stop guilting others, or ...

3b. Humans Mistreat Each Other and Mother Earth - imagine all the drilling, the cutting of trees, the burning of fields, everything normal and beautiful of earth destroyed by greed to steal the resources and be billionaires, all at the cost of our mother. Imagine our planet as a great big fluffy dog, filled with life. And the dog feels the burring of something drilling into it - just like a flea. And another, burning like burning the trees - the dog begins to scratch and shake fiercely and the fleas fall off. You got a parachute for when this happens to us?

4. The Mayan Calendar - Interestingly enough does end on the Winter Solstice, 2012. Why? Not because it's the end of the world - it's just the end of the 5th Cycle of Life on the Planet. The 6th Cycle that begins immediately thereafter and is called the Age of Enlightenment. It's sounds like an exciting time to be alive - so get prepared!

WELCOME - this is reality.

Many of us will fall off, many of us will die. Those who are not prepared, and those who think they are better or more powerful than Mother Earth that we live on, will suffer.

Richard Branson has made his fleet of Intergalactic Space ships to take the rich and wealthy off the planet, just like Roland Emmerich has set of Arks in his movie. Branson's ticket price is much cheaper.


In 1987, the Harmonic Convergence, which was written about by Dr. Jose Arguelles, and my participation in it - by doing long travels through endless ruins, culminating at the El Tule Tree in Oaxaca in Mexico, spoke the prophesy that we had 25 years left of life as we knew it. We must return to natural, non-destructive living. Dang people, we blew it!

Now the cards are on the table. Natural disasters are not caused by nature but by those politicians who paid no heed to the warnings 20-30 years ago. Politicians refused to grant health to the planet at Kyoto and the disastrous earth changes continued.

What can the scenario possibly be -- to cause the end of life as we know it? Who knows, asteroids, meteorites, some crazy Anti-Semitic Iranian ex-president who stole the presidency from the people in order to try to wipe out the State of Israel, some angry Korean president who is dying because of his anger at the United States over a 60 year old situation, or errors by our own major powers in their thinking that nuclear energy is stable enough to survive what our earth going through with hurricanes, tsunamis, typhoons, earthquakes, and worse. All the time our earth, which I'd like to assimilate it to be life this this big furry yellow dog who it tired of all the baggage she's carrying and begins shaking off the fleas. The fleas are US!


Be prepared. More than anything else - it's your mind and soul that need preparation. Since we all know that the soul is immortal, you will survive in one form or another. We have prepared the first of several guides on survival. This first one was just updated Nov. 2009, originally written in 1991 - to help you survive what is undoubtedly going to be a life-changing experience.

It's called - "The World is a Mess, and We Are Responsible - Isn't It Time To THINK RIGHT?

Want to Take Your Company Public? How To Go Public Easily 100% of the Time!

Posted by patrick

By James Scott

There are many ways to use capital without using bank loans, lines of credit and other shady methods like shelf corps and bogus platform scams. If you are truly trying to raise capital for your company here are some simple breakdowns of your options with a quick definition for each one:

PIPE: Private Investment In Public Equity this is used primarily by mutual funds and private investment firms where they buy discount stock in order to raise capital, there are two types of PIPE's traditional where common and preferred stock is issued at a set cap to raise money for the issuer and a structured pipe issues convertible debt.

DPO: Direct Public Offering is when you sell equity shares directly to customers, suppliers and employees.

PPM: Private Placement Memorandum is also known as an offering memorandum takes advantage of Regulation D rule exemptions 504, 505 and 506. This process came into existence with the'33 securities act and popularized in the late'80s, companies can raise money from the public via private placement; there is virtually zero interaction with the SEC after you file form d as long as you stay legal. (most popular form of fund raising).

IPO: Initial Public Offering: extremely expensive, need SOX 404 audits, must have board of directors, quarterly financial reports to shareholders, report heavily to the SEC and 1 out of every 1000 companies that want an IPO actually qualify. I love participating in these but most companies just can't qualify for one reason or the other.

OTCBB: Over the Counter Bulletin Board is an electronic quote system that is the next best thing if you can't go public via IPO, there is minimal red tape to start-ups and small businesses and is legitimized by the stringent ongoing reports to the SEC which keeps investor confidence high (these are extremely solid and I suggest this structure to companies when I am hired by their company or legal team as a consultant as a fast, easy way to raise big capital from the public otc)

Pink Sheet: you can look at pink sheets as the Burger King, while the OTCBB is McDonald's, they are competing OTC mechanisms. Pinks sheets are commonly referred to as penny stock and notorious for 'pump em' and dump em' controversies and a lot of crooked people are involved with this platform. This is not a long term process that will allow one's company to grow, pink sheets companies are typically short lived but it is cheap to set up but not a professional structure that could be upgraded in time to an IPO.

Reverse Merger: a group funds the filing and creation of a public shell, they then sell that shell to a company that wants to go public, the established company merges it's entity into the public shell. The sellers retain around 30% equity after they charge an upfront fee of 300k to 1m. 99% of reverse mergers are successful with the merger, but unsuccessful to bring them to trade and the entity basically just fizzles out.

Taking your company public is actually quite simple and inexpensive when you have the right consultant putting the structure together for you. There are countless ways to raise capital quickly and easily. It's important that you understand your options before you waste time entering into the red tape infested banking system for a loan.

UK Microsoft SQL Computer Training In Detail

Posted by patrick

By Jason Kendall

What kind of things do you expect the most superior training companies certified by Microsoft to give a student in this country currently? Obviously, the very best Gold Partner Microsoft certified training tracks, presenting a selection of courses to lead you towards various areas of industry.

Try to discuss all the different permutations with a person who knows about the commercial demands for IT staff, and has the ability to guide you towards the best kind of work to go with your personal characteristics.

Make sure your training is personalised to your ability level and skills. The best companies will make sure that your training track is appropriate for the status you wish to achieve.

It only makes sense to consider study courses which progress to commercially approved qualifications. There are far too many small companies proposing minor 'in-house' certificates which aren't worth the paper they're printed on in the real world.

To an employer, only the top companies such as Microsoft, Adobe, CompTIA or Cisco (as an example) provide enough commercial weight. Anything less just doesn't cut the mustard.

A question; why ought we to be looking at qualifications from the commercial sector instead of familiar academic qualifications taught at tech' colleges and universities?

Accreditation-based training (in industry terminology) is most often much more specialised. Industry is aware that such specialised knowledge is essential to handle an increasingly more technical workplace. CISCO, Adobe, Microsoft and CompTIA are the key players in this arena.

Higher education courses, as a example, can often get caught up in vast amounts of background study - with a syllabus that's far too wide. This holds a student back from getting enough specific knowledge about the core essentials.

What if you were an employer - and you wanted someone who could provide a specific set of skills. What is easier: Wade your way through a mass of different academic qualifications from various applicants, asking for course details and what trade skills they have, or choose a specific set of accreditations that specifically match what you're looking for, and then select who you want to interview from that. The interview is then more about the person and how they'll fit in - rather than establishing whether they can do a specific task.

Throw out a salesperson who recommends a training program without a decent chat to assess your abilities plus your experience level. Always check they have access to a large stable of training programs so they can give you an appropriate solution.

Don't forget, if you've got any previous certification, then it's not unreasonable to expect to begin at a different level to someone who is new to the field.

Opening with a user skills course first will sometimes be the most effective way to commence your IT program, depending on your skill level at the moment.

The classroom style of learning we remember from school, involving piles of reference textbooks, can be pretty hard going sometimes. If this describes you, dig around for more practical courses which feature interactive and multimedia modules.

Many years of research has time and time again verified that connecting physically with our study, is proven to produce longer-lasting and deeper memory retention.

Learning is now available on CD and DVD discs, where everything is taught on your PC. Using video-streaming, you are able to see your instructors showing you how to perform the required skill, followed by your chance to practice - with interactive lab sessions.

Always insist on a training material demonstration from the school that you're considering. The materials should incorporate demo's from instructors, slideshows and virtual practice lab's for your new skills.

Avoid training that is purely online. Physical CD or DVD ROM materials are preferable where obtainable, so that you have access at all times - ISP quality varies, so you don't want to be totally reliant on a good broadband connection all the time.

Kenneth Copeland Ministry As Supported By Partners And Friends

Posted by patrick

By Kenneth Taylor

Kenneth Copeland Ministry or KCM have created programs under the light of the vision of KCM which to reach out to Christian believers all over the world, particularly for those who are residing in very distant places. The ministry is also synonymous to EMCI or Eagle Mountain Church International (Ltd.) which has been preaching to over one hundred twenty countries worldwide through mass services. Several ministries have been formed in many parts of the globe in order to be able to execute their outreach programs for those who are in dire need.

To be able to expedite the spiritual mission, various ministries are organized in several parts of the globe in strategic locations which are accessible to the believers. In the process of evangelization, the lines from the psalms, parables and writings of the Bible are adapted since these are Christian teachings based from the words of God.

The ministries have facilities created in order to reach out to people from all walks of life especially those who are in far off places. With these facilities, Kenneth Copeland Ministry is able to share the words of God to more followers of the Christian faith. Spreading the good new is the noble mission of KCM and has been successfully carried out through these outreach programs and facilities especially for those believers in some distant places free them from their miserable lives.

Kenneth Copeland Ministry has continuously and strongly survived because of the earnest support extended by partners and friends. This unfailing support has greatly contributed to the creation of more ministries and facilities. Through these ministries, valuable support has been extended to several churches, orphanages, rehabilitation centers, and programs for the youths.

A good number of orphanages have been built to provide assistance to orphaned or abandoned children. Through these orphanages, these unfortunate children are provided with an environment where they would experience of being in a family and being loved. In here, they are nurtured to become good and reliable persons and to be model citizens as they mature.

At an early age the Christian doctrines are already introduced to the children in the orphanage in order to nurture and mold them to become good influence and models of the society. The orphanages have provided the children the atmosphere of love that they have missed from their own parents. In the orphanage, the children have been provided with an environment where they can experience of belongingness and having a great family.

The orphanages have taught the children how to enhance and develop their natural talents. They are groomed to possess a positive outlook in life has been given so that someday in their adult lives they will live happily in a good Christian way. As for the meantime, their daily needs in terms of food, clothing and shelter are being provided by the ministries through the orphanages.

Their avid supporters are instrumental in the propagation of the vision and mission of the Gospel truth. In fact, support from such partners and friends is rapidly and this has allowed the ministries and their facilities to reach out to multitudes of believers to share the words of God.

The Christian, Christianity And The Fate Of Christians Around The World

Posted by patrick

By Samuel Brown

Christianity faces a battle that it must win but can lose if the Christian community does not comes together. Over the last two thousand years we have experienced attacks and we have survived.

Why are we at risk of losing this power to fight back? Well, people are more prone to question the authenticity of the bible and the relevance of the Christian faith than they had in the past.

Over recent years there has been a lot of information in the form of movies and books that have had a significant impact on the Christian faith. Their attacks are packaged in a way to taint the Christian God and replace it with a modern view.

They tend to attack the bible, the main source of the Christian faith, by writing scholarly works that point out the incorrectness of the gospels. They argue that the gospels were written long after the crucifixion and therefore legends would have already developed by the time they were written.

New age books and movies vilely attack the Christian faith and the bible by diverting from accepted truths and pointing out new ways of looking at scriptures. These new ways are clearly not accurate and are designed to destroy rather than support the historical Jesus.

These new age scholars, writers and producers are shaping the way the public perceive the Christian faith. They are becoming successful because of the information age which makes it easier for them to provide their opinions especially on the Internet and crowding out traditional scholars.

Modern scholars are discouraging Christians particularly those who are educated. The goal is to debase the Christian God to irrelevance and finally claim victory over this long religious odyssey.

The school environment has always been our home court where we could influence what our kids learn. Now they are being forced to accept Darwinism over creationism through curriculums that have been specifically designed to demote Christianity.

We have to take a stand against these assailants and as a group fight for what we believe in. It is a fight that's worth the price and we cannot afford to lose such an important battle.

Jay's En-Lightening Experience

Posted by patrick

By Bobbi Landfried

I met Jay in June 1977 when he came to our home to meet my husband, a well known certified hypnotherapist. Jay was hoping to be able to study under him. As an astrologer, I asked him for his date, time and place of birth so I could do his chart. After about a minute I made a startling discovery and returned to tell him what I had found. I think Jay found this a little strange but I said to him, Something special is going to happen to you soon. You will be guided there and this experience will change your life and someone you know will be there to observe.

Eventually, Jay met my husband and they worked together for some time. Jay had some blood pressure and stress issues so they did three hypnosis sessions together to sort the problem. Later on, they started to study together and Lee gave Jay perhaps seven to ten books per week to read; ever expanding Jays mind on cultures and beliefs, mind sciences and cult influences, and much more. He also recommended classes; the Loving Relationship Training by Sondra Lee and a series by Theta Seminars on Metaphysics.

Jay started to attend a class called Spiritual Psychology taught by a husband and wife team from Missouri. They had been into natural healing, natural childbirth with doctors and absolutely unique concepts for a period in time.

Most of Jays friends thought he was crazy to be attending classes like that on weekends when he could have been water skiing, boating, enjoying life, playing with women at bars, or just getting drunk like some of his clients. But, Jay was happy with studying Metaphysics and Healing.

It was at the second Theta Seminar that the special event occurred. It was August 1977 and Jay was in the classroom which was in a loft on 22nd Street in New York City. In the class, they had discussed the cycles of birth and death and their influence on the soul. They did some breathing, meditation and thinking about their own birth.

Jay remembered that his life was traumatic, as his mother had gone into a coma and he was born two months premature. Then, he suddenly realized that he was meant to be born early; his weight was already 8 lbs. 15 ounces and his mother was too tiny at 411 to handle the Big Guy coming into the world.

He was able to forgive himself for wearing out his mother at birth with his size and weight. He forgave his mother for being unconcient at his birth and missing his first two weeks of life on Earth. What an experience it was for him. Feeling the forgive-ness made Jay feel lighter.

The next part of the class was the chanting and rocking session. Jay was still feeling that lightness as the group of six in his team began elevating and rocking him to music and chants. One at a time, the team was lifting each person up and then rocking the fully elevated person before slowly returning them down to the ground.

Back then Jay weighed 280 pounds and there they were, trying to get him up in the air. He felt as light as a feather, totally relaxed as he was rocked back and forth. During the session the window was open and suddenly a strange cool-damp breeze came through into the room, exactly where they were rocking Jay. A bolt of what appeared to be lightning hit Jay at the top of his head. The group pulled their hands away and he floated down to the ground.

Then Jay slowly opened his eyes and touched the top of his head. It felt warm. As he sat up, he was surprised to see me standing over him, looking at him. He remembered what I had said to him when we first met, And someone you know will be there to observe. Jay closed his eyes and his head was filled with ideas and formulas and concepts and the words just know that you know.

From that moment, he knew the past, present and the future. He foresaw floods, tornados, the economic crisis of 2007- on ... he was frightened, but understood. He knew about others just by looking at their faces, their eyes or from their handwriting. And there is so much more that he knew he would come know.

The question for Jay in all of this is, if there is so much that he knows, then how can he use it to help others throughout the rest of his life?

Charity Motorcycle Ride

Posted by patrick

By L.J. James

A few weeks back I received an email from a girl Kim about a Charity Motorcycle event she was working on for Bide A Wee an Animal shelter I worked at when I was younger. As I read the info I was looking forward to attending the event only to find it was being held at Jugs and Strokers the only "Biker Bar" on Long Island that does not allow Motorcycle Club Colors. I was pissed to find out I would not be welcome at this event. I then saw the email had been sent out to many other Motorcycle Clubs on Long Island. Pissed Off, I started writing a reply to the email and sent it out to the MC's here on Long Island. Here is what I wrote.

Hey everyone this is LJ James.

You may not know this but I worked at Bide A Wee in Wantagh for many years. I have some great memories of my time working there. As much as I love the place and think Bide A Wee to be a truly great organization, I will not take off my Colors to go inside Jugs & Strokers to attend this event.

I see this email is addressed to many different Clubs. Some of your beliefs may be different then mine and you may take your Colors off to attend this event. I would hope all of you have more respect for your Club then to do that, but these are my beliefs and may not be yours.

I think it is only fair to Kim who is working very hard for this very worthy cause that she know what your feelings are about the Jugs and Strokers policy in regards to Colors. Kim has spent a lot of time working on this event and I would hate to see her event fail because she is unaware of the Revulsion Jugs and Strokers has towards Motorcycle Clubs!!!

Not only is it an old out dated Policy that promotes the Division of Motorcycle Riders, it is also illegal according to NY State Law! I have been working hard to protect and promote Motorcycle Rights and Unity here in NY and world wide. I think it is time We started working hard to change what is wrong here on Long Island! There is an old saying, "if you want to fix the world start in your own back yard".

This is an event that, when I heard about it I wanted to attend. Then I hear it is being held at Jugs and now I am "not allowed to attend".

I am not a bad guy! You all out there know me. How many of your events have I covered in Magazines? How many of you have I DJed for? Not only your Club events but many of your personal family events! I've even preformed wedding ceremonies for a few of you and after I married you I Djed your wedding!!!

You too are also all good people. Your MCs have done many things to make Long Island a better place. You have fed the Hungry, Clothed the poor, and made sure every Child on Long Island had a Toy for the Holidays. Our patches stand for what is great about America! Why should we be made to feel that wearing our Colors is even the slightest bit wrong?

If you ask Jugs and Strokers, they might try to use the excuse "well its not your group its other groups who are the bad guys". That is a cop out, a lie, and an attempt to divide the Long Island Motorcycle Club world!!!

Over the past few years here on Long Island we have seen a Unity in the Motorcycle Club World that many still can not believe. Sport Bike Clubs and Cruiser Clubs riding and hanging together. AMA Clubs and 1% Clubs attend each others events. Law Enforcement Clubs and Outlaw Clubs Breaking Bread and Drinking together at events. I have seen every type of rider hanging out together. This is the Biker dream people!!!

There was a time when we were all told that you could not have a bar on Long Island where all MCs where aloud to mingle together. That there would be nothing but fights and problems. Then JDs Place opened and shortly after that, the Myth was put to rest.

The Motorcycle World here on Long Island has become something We are all very proud of. I call out to all of you MCs, independents, and MROs like ABATE, it is time to end the humiliating practice that Jugs and Strokers has been aloud to inflict upon the Long Island Motorcycle World for far too long!!!

I am tired of this bar being allowed to claim it is a biker bar for bikers, but if your a member of a Motorcycle Club and wear your Colors, you are some how an undesirable, and unwelcome. I say time is up, Jugs and Stokers! You have made enough money off the Long Island Motorcycle world! You need to stop being part of the Problem and become part of the Solution!!!

I'm interested to know what the feelings are of the rest of you!!!

(Because of this reply, Shortly after I wrote this the event was switched to another Long Island Biker Bar "Sick Moon Saloon" That welcomes all who Ride)

Discrimination On The Basis Of Clothing Or Club Membership Is ILLEGAL Article I, Section 11 of the New York State Constitution states "that no person shall be denied the equal protection of the laws of this state or any subdivision thereof." Article 4, Section 40 of the Civil Rights Law provides that "all persons within the jurisdiction of this state shall be entitled to the full and equal accommodations, advantages, facilities and privileges of any places of public accommodations, resort or amusement subject only to the conditions and limitations established by law and applicable alike to all persons." The U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that individuals have the constitutional right under the First Amendment to wear clothing which displays writing or designs. Cohen v. California, 403 US 15 (1971). In addition, the right of an individual to freedom of association has long been recognized and protected by the United States Supreme Court. Thus, a person's right to wear the clothing of his choice, as well as his right to belong to any club or organization his choice is constitutionally protected, and persons or establishments who discriminate on the basis of clothing or club membership are subject to a lawsuit.
