Feeling Sideways

by Frank Dobner

Maybe you have also had the experience of having a day, when for no apparent reason, there is nothing you can do to change the way you feel. You woke up just feeling “sideways.” You even get heroic and start going through the motions….take a shower, go for a walk, exercise, brush your teeth…but nothing can get your heart purring.

I had a day like this on Thursday this week. I actually had a good day on Wednesday. I had a pleasant noontime business meeting on Wednesday and the usually good discussion at my A Course in Miracles (The Course) group on Wednesday evening. And then, for whatever reason…..Thursday morning I woke up feeling like the farmer guy in the beginning of the movie Men in Black that is killed by the alien and get his body used as a human costume……”more sugar!”

Forget the News, I Have a Life to Create

20100825 Mr Boffo

I saw this Mr Boffo cartoon last week and thought, how appropriate for an article. What we look at and consume through our five senses becomes our reality.

If we consume what the news and entertainment media throw at us without some dissemination, this becomes our reality. Further, there is a sense of some creation that will come out in your reality if pondered too long. Read More...

Let Go and Let God... are You *&@#!* Kidding Me?

by Dan Doviddio

This article is intended for anyone who is into Law of Attraction and other teachings, saying to themselves...’does this shit really work’? ‘I mean, I try and try and I’m still in a crappy way’. ‘I understand it, but I don’t think it really works’.

Are you feeling like this sometimes?
Let Go-1

There’s no magic cure out there. Because it’s not magic. It is just that pretty much everything you’ve been taught is incorrect. We let our ego take control and draw us wherever it pleases. The world outside our five senses comes across so real and the intensity of it is overbearing.

Are You Really Making Your Own Decisions?

by Colin Gonsalves

I recently watched a program on TV titled “Finding My Mind” on the Science Channel in which
Oxford University professor Marcus du Sautoy offers his brain for testing by neuroscientists
with the objective of searching for consciousness. One of the experiments that blew my mind
was where Prof. John Dylan Haynes of the Bernstein Center for Computational Neuroscience
using brain imaging technology was able to predict Marcus’ decision SIX seconds before he
made a conscious decision!!!! It seems that our decisions are shaped by our unconscious
activity in the brain and that our consciousness comes in at a very late stage in a decision-
making process.

You May Be Looking, But Are You Seeing?

By Dan Doviddio

I was reading in the August Quartus Report , put out by Jan and John Price, regarding what road do you want to walk on. In John’s article, he talks about going down the road of the mundane or the bright path of divinity.

As I was reading the article, I was thinking how much we look, but don’t see. What do I mean by that, you might ask, if you’ve held on this long? When you decide you really want to know what life is about, how you look at the world will depend on what you see.

Shine On You Crazy Diamond

by Frank Dobner

I have loved the music of Pink Floyd long before they were ever popular. Floyd chose to expose the underside of psychological experience (the shadow, so to speak) and did it to great effect and success. I believed it then, and still now, that so much of what is said in this music, is but one statement repeated in 14 studio albums and 26 well-played singles. That message is “we are asleep until we know that we are asleep, and only then can you awake.”

Well those are my words, not Pink Floyd’s. Pink Floyd from the title song said it:

Remember when you were young, you shone like the sun.

I don’t generally like to quote other people’s lyrics, but they just popped into my head today when I was out for a walk. Everybody loves babies and puppies because we marvel at how good babies and puppies must feel, to be so giddy, doing nothing in particular. The rest of us need nuclear arms, pipe organs, beaver skin hats and Sex in The City to keep us happy. The fact is that none of this stuff matters or really exists.

Most of us continually look out into the world to find things or people to make us happy or to blame. For instance, what is your view of the world? Do you experience the world as an evil, conniving, vicious place? The bad news, is that you are creating it. Don’t believe me? Have ever had a “bad streak” where a whole bunch of bad things happened to you? Do you think that those things were a bad set of circumstances? I doubt it. I know this sounds harsh, but love really does make the world go around.


So, assuming that you can find some truth in what I say, you might ask yourself, “so what do you do about it?” I have just recently been introduced to the system of Self Identity ho’oponopono which is built on an old Polynesian practice. It essentially allows you to clean your own diamond. If you think about it, the only thing that separates you from your brilliance is your beliefs. Actually they are poisonous beliefs. They are your guilt and grievances against yourself which are projected out on the world. So the game is to tear down the wall.

When you continually become aware of all of the little judgments and bitches about yourself, the ho’oponopono system allows you recognize them, neutralize them and create an opening that allows you to experience a state that is naturally you….a brilliant diamond. The steps are:

1. I’m sorry. This is an acknowledgment that some thought (without you knowing about it) has entered into your mind and body and is causing havoc. It does not matter how small the thought is. For instance, maybe you never sent a thank you card for the $10 you received from Aunt Betty for your birthday. Well that thought is still there until your see it and do something about it. One important thing to note….it is not necessary to understand why you have the thought either. Just first knowing it, is all you need to do.

2. Please forgive me. You are asking for some greater source (call it what you like….God, Elohim, Divinity, etc.) to take this thought from you. You are not asking the greater source to forgive you, because no real power can even acknowledge that you can be anything but perfect. So don’t bother asking God for forgiveness, because he or she does not know what you’re talking about. Perfection only sees perfection. God is perfect.

3. Thank you. You are showing your faith that this thought has been neutralized on your behalf. You know now that this thought has been taken care of. One thing that I do, is for problems that are persistent, I need to do this 4 step system several times.

4. I love you. This transforms energy from stuck to flowing. It reconnects you to your essence and leaves the diamond brighter.

I find that this system is very akin to what I find in “A Course in Miracles.” Quite simply, the Course is designed to change your mind. The work involved in improving your experience using the above is continuous. Every moment represents another opportunity to be forgiven. And just to repeat, you are not forgiving anyone and you’re definitely not asking to be forgiven by God. That is unnecessary and a waste of time. Only you need your forgiveness. You need to get cleaned up.

I read the book “Zero Limits” co-written by Joe Vitale and Dr. Ihaleakala Hew Len last weekend. It is a great place to learn the above technique and how it is really used. In this book, Dr. Hew Len says that your mind is like a PC. If you do not permanently delete unwanted files (bad thoughts) they just go into the recycle bin. In other words, you do not get rid of them, you just get them “out of sight.” Being “out of sight” these ornery thoughts just fester and cause unconscious rage and damage. Although freeing yourself from your personal junk is gift enough, your personal change can effect events, people and things beyond thought.

The real excitement caused by the work of Dr. Hew Len is based on a few principles:

1. The physical universe is an actualization of my thoughts. What is happening “out there” is created always by what is going “in here.” When you think about it, where do you experience the world? It is always inside, isn’t it?

2. When your thoughts are poisonous, they create a poisonous physical reality. Have you ever been around someone that is really angry (without them even speaking a word to you), and you can just feel it? Well, the same thing is going on within you, and AROUND you.

3. You are 100% responsible for what happens in your world through creating perfect thoughts. That means you need to clean, clean, clean.

4. There is no “out there.” Everything exists as thoughts in your mind.


Thinking About Security

By Denise Van Vilet

From the editor: What follows is channelled material by Denise from her teachers.

A question I posed to the Masters Teachers and Loved Ones:

I have been thinking about security. It seems in today's world, nothing is secure. How can I feel more secure?

With the energy shift that has already happened, the result was exposing the veil of security that was placed in the institutions that gave a false sense of security. When you place your security in any person place or thing, you are insecure. You give away your personal power. No longer are people placing security in the financial or religious institutions. No longer are men and women placing their security and the marriage institution. It's all fallacy. Play the game for the joy of it, but as soon as you place your security in something other than your own Source, you have chosen to give your power away.

There was -- is a universal feeling of disempowerment all over the world. All the institutions were shaken to expose the fallacy of it all. Only some really understand the true meaning of it. Most wanted someone to step in for them to fix it. To go back to the way it was before. But that is not moving forward. That is setting up for another fall.

Now is the time to take back your security. The governments and other institutions will have you believe that your security is in their hands. But they have an agenda that does not have your best interests at the forefront. During the shift, keep your eyes open. The way to future possibilities will be shown to you as long as you stop looking at how things once were. You can only move forward from right now.

Notice how more and more people are with the feeling of distrust. Some were working for the corporate institution for all of their life only to be let go as if they were a used garment. The Corporation has no attachment to its assets. Yet those that put their feeling of security have strong attachments to the Corporation. This sets up a huge imbalance. It is like this with all institutions, the financial, religious, marriage, and government institutions.

A man and woman can be together for 30 plus years. The woman puts her security in the man, a strong belief in the marriage institution. The man decides he wants something else and leaves. The woman is devastated. She does not know what her own security even means. She gave all her choices to someone or something else. Giving her choices away was a choice. Mothers told their daughters to give their power away. It's a cycle that is now breaking with the shift in energy. Now mates choose to be together to be together. One does not have to give up their will to choose.

This shift will be felt for a while until the energy settles. Until then, things will continue to feel unsettled. You can either take your power back and only put your security in your source, or keep looking for places or institutions to place your security in and keep repeating the cycle.

No longer go backwards to the way things were. Embrace the unknown, not the fear, so that the next step forward will be clear to you. The job you have, the clothes on your body, the roof over your head, are all temporary. Putting your security in these things is temporary. A false sense of security. Connect with your Source flowing through you. There is your security.
