Psychic Secrets: Forget The Island of “Lost”, We’re Citizens of a New World

Hot:

This illuminating secret was just revealed for us by anonymous Reality Teachers:

“As the New Island is created, as we step, fresh-minted and fresh-minded onto its sacred shores, the old island is destroyed behind us…

“The old’s usefulness has been served. Now the old stage set is to be struck, the special effects lab shut down, the electricity extinguished…

All the old effects of living on the nearby-in-time-departed island behind us, back at the bridge’s beginnings, are complete. With no further need or desire to sustain the old stories, that old world is veritably rolled up like a worn, treasured carpet.

Allowed to be extinguished & then recycled–for we have no need to return back into that squalid past, however much we loved it despite all its flaws.

Because your energies lie focused into the new direction.

Into your footsteps–and your wing flights–you enter upon this vast New Island life–where, it’s true:

you have no need for the past, successfully graduated from–

because in advancing across the bridge to this New Island–you have moved into fuller use and possession of your true, honest senses.

Please note: your old island past is NOT for you to willfully destroy–

because in doing this, you would censor your abilities of awakening peace, which would tend to negate your crossing of any necessary bridge in the first place.

Instead, honor with respect every place you have ever been.

Allow God Himself to roll up the magic carpet of old times from behind you and to do this as He will–

for who else but He, in coordination with your highest divine desires & good will, has UNROLLED the magic carpet of this New Island–for YOU?!”
With Peace and Blessings to You,

I Promise to Stop Procrastinating, Sooner or Later: New Year’s Resolution #1

Hot:

A. The Historical Problem

Maybe you’re familiar with my “sad condition”. It’s called “procrastination” by some, and “a sure sign of genius at work” by more enlightened critics.



As a Master Procrastinator, or The Procrastinator King, any excuses I invent for my own slack behavior are far more clever and self deceptive than any my supporters might concoct for me.

“We know you have a lot of stress”–
“Everybody is too busy these days to finish everything”–
“It’s just because you’re artistic and you meditate a lot!”
etc. etc.

(Amateurs! Well meaning, but amateurs. They probably never goofed off a day in their virtuous lives, so they don’t realize they’re being played. Or, they’re compensating for me because they secretly wish they could be as slack–but that’s another story.)

Fact: I am far too diligent in my slothfulness for anyone else’ kind alibis to work.

Fact: Only the master of his own jail cell may convincingly portray himself as a prisoner…

Lounging comfortably on his tattered bunk, with unlaced scruffy boot he pushes his prison door key out of sight under threadbare rug when sympathetic visitors come to his cell.

B. Some Brutal Solutions

Probably the most compassionately brutal thing you can do for the self-educated & self-imprisoned man:

Use tough love.

Like a Sherlockian psychologist, deduce his weak point, find the key to his deception.

Threaten to uncover & steal that key.

Convince him of your sincerity, at least he’ll lose his crocodile-like torpor for a second. Leap up in half-hearted defense of his right to waste his life…on his own terms.

Why?

Without the comforting fact of his capacity for self-escape, his confinement would soon prove intolerable!

So if you want someone to get off his or her lazy butt, just find a way to threaten to make his self-confinement WORSE or IRREVERSIBLE.

Or, refuse to visit his jail cell.
Refuse to send monthly care packages reminding him how nice life would be if he were free.
Refuse to make sympathetic excuses for his procrastination.
Refuse to accept his apologies for not following up on his dreams.

Eventually, he might creep mouse-like out of his cell when he thinks no one’s looking…just to sneak a fresh breath of that strange new air called “life” coming in from beyond the jail.

C. The Shocking Results

Who really knows? That’s why life is a freedom and freedom is life.

But one thing you know–
tough love works.

Just be careful how much you use it for others–
they might catch on & use it for YOU.
Because nobody’s perfect, you know!

My Post Script & Pre Script–
What YOU Get Out of This:

I promise to post more regularly in 2012.

Twice a week. Shorter posts.

With more of my philosophical & political views,
more of more quirky sense of humor,
& more of my wild-eyed creative knee-jerk responses to the events of the day that concern us.

I’ll invite you to get more out of this blog & its growing community–
including surveys & contests,
& share special inspirational secrets.

Why? Because I believe you have special qualities–
you have special potential you WANT to tap into THIS very exciting year of 2012.
God knows these gifts are waiting inside you.

When you tap into your uniqueness with daring & with hope–
miracles can happen.

And I want to help.

Promise!

Sincerely,
