Talk to Your Future Self

a4429-stop-thinking

.

Here’s how to get in touch with every talent, every ability you ever wanted for yourself, even if you’re convinced you don’t have a shred of ability in that area.

Physicists and mystics agree that all of time co-exists simultaneously. The way we experience time, with one moment following another moment after another moment, is (they say) an illusion. In reality, all moments of time are hanging around together, and our consciousness is threading its way through and among those moments of time.

(Just stay with me for a bit longer, and we’ll be past all this theoretical stuff.)

They also say that there are an infinite number of variations of each possible moment. That’s what they call “parallel universes” in the science fiction movies.

As it turns out, those parallel universes are not actually science fiction after all. They’re really there-the physicists say so. We just can’t usually see them.

But there is one way to perceive them. It’s your intuition (or imagination).

You can actually tune your mind in to a talent you don’t have, but would love to, and you can attract it to you. There is “another you” in that alternate “now” that has all the talent you wanted but didn’t get.

So how do you benefit from this “other you”? How do you siphon off the abilities from the “talent gas-tank” of that other you, and get it into your mind?

The short answer is, you don’t.

You don’t try to take anything away from anybody. Instead, you reach out with your intuition and imagination and offer to combine your talents with those of that other you. You suggest a win-win merger that benefits you both.

Then you start training those new talents, and-surprise-those very talents appear from out of “nowhere” (but you’ll know where).

Do this…

It’s simple to do a bit of “day-dreaming” and talk to other versions of yourself. How do you reach them? Just imagine it. You’re always talking to that policeman or judge or parent in your head. So why not your other selves in other possible universes? Just imagine them. Talk to them. Offer to do a joint venture — share some of what you know for some of what they can do.

And then, once you’ve made an agreement, just accept what comes. And enjoy it.

What is the key to success? ……. understand that there is a miracle in every mess.

thinkingaa

.

Ever heard of the Fuller Brush Man? You know, those legendary guys who came knocking on the front doors of America, selling brushes, mops and cleaners?

I was one of them, back in my early twenties.

I had just quit a job in an employment agency after four-and-a-half very long, very stressful days.

Confined for eight hours a day to an incredibly tiny cubicle, ear pressed to the phone calling through the yellow pages trying to find job listings, then on my very first interview having to lie to a girl about a fictitious job the boss had advertised to pull in applicants. (Can you say bait-and-switch?)

That girl knew I was lying, and when she walked out the door, I walked out, too, almost on her heels.

So when I started a new job selling door-to-door, it seemed like heaven in comparison. No cubical – I was outdoors in the June sunshine and balmy breezes. No telephone – I was talking to people face to face.

And no lying. If I didn’t think a product measured up, I simply didn’t put it in my case; I only showed what I thought was the best.

I was ecstatic from the first minute of the first day.

Every house I walked up to, my heart sang and I said over and over to myself, “I am SO-O-O-O-O-O glad to be out here and not trapped in that cubical.”

I was deliriously happy to be where I was. Overjoyed to be doing what I was doing.

And sell? Man, I sold just about half of all the people I talked to. Back in the early sixties, a hundred-dollar-day was the holy grail of Fuller Brush men. Sales people would stay out till eight or nine o’clock every night trying to nail that hundred dollar mark.

But not me. I knocked off every afternoon about five or five-thirty with $120 or $130 worth of receipts in my order book.

Then, after a few weeks, something quietly changed. My sales began to sag. Each morning saw me going out a little less enthusiastic. I spent increasing amounts of time trying to figure out what was going wrong.

After a few months, I left that job, utterly disappointed in myself.

Afterwards I wondered how I could have taken something so obviously perfect for me and messed it up so badly.

In fact, that question followed me, haunted me for twenty long years. Eventually, though, I figured it out.

The secret had been right in front of my nose all those years, but just as a fish can’t see the water it swims in, I had been unable to repeat that undeniable success.

My big secret? It was simple, really.

I had filled my mind with thankfulness – undiluted gratitude – unreserved joy at being right where I was, doing exactly what I was doing.

Then, twenty years later, when I started being thankful again – but deliberately, this time – my life changed back.

Suddenly, all sorts of “serendipitous” things started occurring. People I barely knew started bringing me terrific opportunities.

Mark this: Joyous stuff started happening AFTER I went back to being overjoyed with my life.

Make no mistake – there were still challenges that needed to be dealt with. But I stopped seeing “problems” as personal affronts deliberately sent by life to impede me. In fact, with the right mindset, I couldn’t see problems at all. Instead, they looked like fascinating puzzles to solve and games to enjoy sorting out.

And even now, anytime I feel life becoming a bit too stressful, a bit too heavy, a bit less fun, I make myself stop and – against all logic – I start looking at all the stuff around me and calling it good.

And yes, I even make myself say, “I am SO-O-O-O-O glad to be right here, right now.” And I don’t stop saying that until I can feel it taking hold.

Now, I realize that on the surface, there is absolutely no logic to this practice… except for one tiny thing.

It works.

So if you decide to try this approach, do this: make a list of all your major problems and start through them, one at a time, saying, “I am so glad this is happening. This is actually very interesting now that I look at it closely, and I’m lucky to be here so I can gain some great new knowledge from this. I am SO-O-O-O-O glad.”

But you’ve got to put some real oomph into it. Some real feeling. Just saying the words without working up some enthusiasm is like writing a letter without a pen in your hand. You’re going through all the motions, but no communication takes place.
So do that, and keep doing it till it starts taking hold.

How can you tell when it’s taking hold?

There are two signs. First, you begin to lose that tense, blocked, frustrated feeling. And second, your life starts working FOR you instead of AGAINST you. Lots of little things start going right instead of wrong. People begin treating you like you’ve always wanted them to.

And you go to bed each night feeling like you’ve just had a wonderful day.
If you’ve tried and tried all the logical stuff and your life is still a mess, try being illogical. Try being thankful for everything you’ve got.

Including the mess.

And you’ll find, just as I have, that indeed there is a miracle in every mess.

Think about your life for a moment. Are you exactly where you want to be?

 

Banks have made citizens crack

.

Think about your life for a moment. Are you exactly where you want to be? Are you doing work that you love? Are you free to travel when and where you wish? Are your relationships fulfilling? Are you financially free or are you tied to a job you hate?

 

Now answer this question for me: Do you want to know exactly why you are not living a life of ease, comfort, and happiness? Yes, of course you do. Pay close attention:

 

“The only reason you are not living the life of your dreams is because unconstructive beliefs were programmed into your mind as a child.”

 

Let me say it in a way that might be easier to understand: “The only reason you don’t have enough money is because you still believe the bullshit they taught you as a kid.”

 

That’s it… When you were young, you learned certain “facts” about life that became a part of your subconscious operating system. This system now automatically creates the life you are living. If you are not living exactly the life that you desire, then these beliefs need to be changed… it’s as simple as that.

 

Do you realize that you have been brainwashed?

 

Most people don’t want to hear this “inconvenient truth.” But most people are also living hopeless lives of quiet desperation. Not that there’s anything wrong with that… but I know that you are not like that. I doubt you would still be reading if you didn’t realize that you are capable of much, much more.

 

In fact, you HAVE been brainwashed. Of course, we are all brainwashed. Every single person on the planet is brainwashed with a certain set of beliefs which automatically operates his or her life.

 

Your parents, your teachers, your leaders, your culture, and your friends and family have all had a hand in creating exactly the set of beliefs you use to operate in your world.

 

Is this bad? Only if the beliefs you accepted as a child are not helping you now. Of course, if you are happy, healthy and successful then you have a subconscious operating system that works. Count your blessings and enjoy your life.

 

However, if there is some area of your life which you would like to change, then it is vital that you learn how to.

 

Let’s go back to the beginning. The REAL reason you don’t have enough money is because you believe something you learned as a child which is keeping you from having enough money. Perhaps your father told you that rich people are crooks. Well, of course you don’t want to be considered a crook in your father’s eyes, so you will never be rich. Your subconscious programming will make sure that you are never able to make money.

 

Or perhaps your parents always fought about money. What did your young mind learn? You learned that money causes trouble. You don’t want trouble, so you avoid money.

 

Or maybe you are spiritually inclined. But you were probably taught that “money is the root of all evil.” And you don’t want to be evil, do you? So what happens in your inner programming? It will automatically sabotage your attempts to get money, in order to “protect” you from being evil.

“The Bible’s Buried Secrets,” – Archaeological findings that will annoy believers as well as sceptics.

 

.

“The Bible’s Buried Secrets,” premiering tonight on PBS, presents archaeological findings that will annoy believers as well as sceptics – which suggests the TV documentary just might be on the right track.

 

At least that’s the view of William Dever, a world-renowned archaeologist who worked on the show and calls it “the first honest film that’s been made” about the first books of the Bible. For Jews, those books make up the Torah and other early scriptures, while Christians would call them the early part of the Old Testament.

 

The two-hour show has already stirred up a backlash among some believers. For example, the program airs archaeologists’ assertions that:

 

•The Bible’s first books have been traced back to multiple authors writing over a span of centuries.

•There’s no evidence for the actual existence of patriarchs such as the biblical Abraham.

•Some ancient adherents of Yahweh also worshiped his “wife,” a fertility goddess named Asherah.

•The Exodus appears to have involved just a small segment of the Jewish population rather than all Jews.

•The Land of Canaan was not taken over by conquest – rather, the Israelites actually might have been Canaanites who migrated into the highlands and created a new identity for themselves. “Joshua really didn’t fight the Battle of Jericho,” Dever said.

 

That kind of talk has spurred the American Family Association to start up an online petition urging Congress to cut off federal funding for PBS. But Dever maintains that it’s not a biblical archaeologist’s job to demonstrate the truth of biblical stories, despite the many TV specials of the past about the real Christmas story, the lost tomb of Jesus and other claims.

 

“Archaeology certainly doesn’t prove literal readings of the Bible,” he told me. “It calls them into question, and that’s what bothers some people. Most people really think that archaeology is out there to prove the Bible. No archaeologist thinks so.”

 

David and the disbelievers

 

Disbelievers may be discomfited as well: “The Bible’s Buried Secrets” includes a segment highlighting the work of the Pittsburgh Theological Seminary’s Ron Tappy, who is part of a team studying an inscription at Israel’s Tel Zayit archaeological site. The inscription hints that a well-organized state was functioning in the 10th century B.C., with Jerusalem as its seat.

 

Yet another inscription at Tel Dan, from the ninth century B.C., appears to refer to the “House of David” – although that interpretation is disputed. Such evidence suggests that King David and King Solomon were historical figures who matched up with the biblical accounts.

 

Dever said still more evidence may be coming to light with the discovery of a ceramic shard inscribed with Hebrew writing from the 10th century B.C. The shard was found amid the ruins of a fortified settlement south of Jerusalem, and the inscription appears to include words meaning “judge,” “slave” and “king.”

 

“That’s dynamite,” Dever said, “because if there’s a small fortress where people were able to keep records, on the way to Jerusalem, there’s a king up there. I don’t care if you name him Solomon or Fred, it doesn’t matter to me.”

 

The way Dever sees it, “The Bible’s Buried Secrets” plays it straight down the middle, and that may raise unsettling questions for literalists as well as those who see the Bible as a collection of fairy tales.

 

“The film’s going to get it from both sides,” Dever said.

 

Reality check for the reality check

Dever would be expected to feel that way, since he’s so closely associated with the film. But Hershel Shanks, founder of the Biblical Archaeology Society and editor of the Biblical Archaeology Review, agreed that there’s nothing shocking in “The Bible’s Buried Secrets” – that is, if you’ve been following the field closely.

 

“When you know a lot about something, it always appears that the media make mistakes,” Shanks told me. “The scholarly experts can find emphases that they would disagree with. Biblical archaeology is a field that is riven [by such disagreements]. But overall, I think it’s a fine production. It is very basic, for people who don’t know much about it.”

 

Those who believe in the literal truth of every word in the Bible aren’t going to be happy, he said. “There’s a question of what it means to be ‘literally true,’” Shanks said, “whether you’re talking about spiritually, or in terms of the lessons being taught, or whether you’re talking about factual historicity.”

 

Sometimes it’s a matter of emphasis – for example, in the debate over how many Israelites (or would those be Canaanites?) took part in the Exodus, versus how many were in Canaan to start with. “If I were saying it, I would put more emphasis on the crew that did come from Egypt,” Shanks said. “Nobody who deals with the Bible critically would say that there were 2 million or 3 million people moving across the desert. But that doesn’t matter. We’re talking about a group. How large, we don’t know.”

 

Once those sojourners arrived in the land of Canaan, it would be “perfectly normal and understandable” for other Canaanites to head into the highlands where the crew from Egypt had settled, Shanks said.

 

Debating the evidence, or lack thereof

 

That doesn’t mean archaeologists are fully in agreement: For example, Dever and Anson Rainey, a professor emeritus at Tel Aviv University, have long been locked in a big argument over the Israelites’ origins. (You can read Rainey’s latest volley in Biblical Archaeology Review.) But Shanks said believers shouldn’t feel threatened – even though some of the claims in the show may seem to equate the absence of evidence with evidence of absence.

 

“Anybody who says that Abraham never existed has no archaeological proof for that,” Shanks said. “That’s a matter of faith and an understanding of the way stories developed. But if someone wants to say we have no proof that Abraham existed, that’s true.”

 

You could even argue that it wouldn’t make much of a difference even if every Bible story were proven true. In fact, that’s exactly the argument made in Luke 16. You can also find biblical evidence to back up claims from “The Bible’s Buried Secrets” that may seem controversial at first blush – for example, the claims about goddess worship among the Jews.

 

The fact that PBS is setting aside two hours of prime time to focus on the Bible’s early books demonstrates that those ancient texts can still stir the soul – and stir the blood as well. The film’s writer, director and producer, Gary Glassman, said that’s why he spent the past six years raising money for the documentary, and the past two years making it.

 

“The testament to the fact that the Bible has great ideas in it,” Glassman told me, “is that we’re still wrangling over it today.”

Inventing the Bible stories?

 

.

De-constructing the walls of Jericho

 

By Ze’ev Herzog

 

Following 70 years of intensive excavations in the Land of Israel, archaeologists have found out: The patriarchs’ acts are legendary, the Israelites did not sojourn in Egypt or make an exodus, they did not conquer the land. Neither is there any mention of the empire of David and Solomon, nor of the source of belief in the God of Israel. These facts have been known for years, but Israel is a stubborn people and nobody wants to hear about it.

This is what archaeologists have learned from their excavations in the Land of Israel: the Israelites were never in Egypt, did not wander in the desert, did not conquer the land in a military campaign and did not pass it on to the 12 tribes of Israel. Perhaps even harder to swallow is the fact that the united monarchy of David and Solomon, which is described by the Bible as a regional power, was at most a small tribal kingdom. And it will come as an unpleasant shock to many that the God of Israel, Jehovah, had a female consort and that the early Israelite religion adopted monotheism only in the waning period of the monarchy and not at Mount Sinai. Most of those who are engaged in scientific work in the interlocking spheres of the Bible, archaeology and the history of the Jewish people – and who once went into the field looking for proof to corroborate the Bible story – now agree that the historic events relating to the stages of the Jewish people’s emergence are radically different from what that story tells.

What follows is a short account of the brief history of archaeology, with the emphasis on the crises and the big bang, so to speak, of the past decade. The critical question of this archaeological revolution has not yet trickled down into public consciousness, but it cannot be ignored.
