There are no problems. There is nothing wrong. Everything is unfolding as
it should. Everything happens in its own time. Space and time are illusions.
They really do not exist. They're stationary. Causation doesn't exist either.
No thing has a cause, therefore no thing has an effect. Cause and effects
are again products of your own mind. When the mind is quiet, karma ceases.
Samscaras are non-existent. There never was a cause for anything. But if
you feel that in a previous life you did something wrong and now you are
paying the price, or if you think that you did something wrong in this
life and you're paying the price, then you'll pay the price, because
that's what you think.
- Robert Adams
We are so blessed to be living in an ever-changing Universe.
Everything is always changing. Everything is always fresh, new and
alive! Change is the greatest spice of life and without it life becomes
a dull predictable monologue. This changing nature is always bringing you
unimaginable possibilities, new opportunities, blessings, and new
experiences in each moment. Because of the ever-changing nature of
your world, there is always something new at your door. There is always
something new to support you and challenge you to evolve into the divine
soul that you truly are. This constant dynamic changing moment allows
you to fully be alive and truly savor each experience since you don't know
if it will be the last time you experience it.
"Change alone is eternal, perpetual, immortal."
One of the golden essential keys to embracing the divine gift that change
is cultivating trust in the Universe. The truth is that the Universe loves
you, and wants you to experience everything that you desire. Hasn't it always
provided for you in your life up until this moment? All the changes the
Universe sends you are really gifts for you that it wants you to unwrap and
discover the beauty of. And best of all these are gifts that you have asked
for on some level because you are creating your reality in each new moment.
You can trust that the Universe and your infinite nature are working together
to support your evolution as a soul, and therefore you can deeply know that
all change that you encounter is here for the purpose of your on-going abundance,
and awakening to the truth of your being. Stop and realize that you are the
divine co-creator behind the scenes, continuously creating this awesome
experience that is about to come your way and change will heed to your
beck and call.
"The core of your being is permanent; things in the world are not. They are
fleeting phenomena passing on the screen of the mind. Only consciousness is
eternal and stationary."
There is only one thing in the Universe that is permanent, and never dies.
This is the essence of what/who you truly are. The divine infinite being that
you are is always here now, awake, present and conscious. This remains
changeless, and timeless forever. The good news is that no matter what changes
in your outer world, you will continue to remain. Perhaps it's the end of a
relationship, or the beginning of a new relationship, the core of your being
remains untouched and changeless through it all. You are not touched by the
periphery. The true you that never dies can never be tainted by all of these
seemly important or not so important changes that happen in your life. You
will always be. You are an eternal being that continuously resides in a forever
deepening pool of inner peace and contentment. Knowing this, you master the
whirlwind of chang e around you. The next time that change comes a knocking
at your door, open the door and receive it with open,
loving arms. You will be amazed at how much easier your life flows, and how
much more abundance you manifest when you can allow all types of change to be
a part of your life.
"It's not so much that we're afraid of change, but that place in between that
we fear. It's like being between trapezes. There's nothing to hold on to."
What's interesting is that some people spend their entire lives resisting change.
They try to stop it by procrastinating, avoiding and getting upset when the
possibility of change arrives at their door. Sometimes change knocks at your
door disguised as a dirty homeless person. Most people may immediately say
"NO" and shut the door on this person, looking the other way. What they don't
understand is that at their doorstep is the most abundant Kings and Queens of
this Universe who are wanting to offer you their entire kingdom. When they
knock, it is your job to open the door with appreciation and say, "Thank you!
Come in! How can I be of service to you?" When you greet change this way, you
tend to master the wheel of change instead of feeling it has mastered you.
"You cannot step twice into the same river, for other waters are continually
When you start embracing change, especially the changes that your mind believes
to be wrong or bad, it will create an unimaginable state of liberation and
freedom in your life. It is only when we resist change that we experience
suffering, sadness, and fear. It's like breathing, when you resist the next
breath of air, you start to suffocate and get weaker inside. It's only when
you go with the flow and welcome the next inhalation and exhalation that you
truly feel alive! When you fully open yourself up to this experience of
welcoming life, you discover a power inside you that is unstoppable. You are
afraid of nothing and are willing to experience anything the Universe offers.
From this place, the Universe will bow down to you and hand over everything
you want on a silver platter. All you get to do is sit back and let the
abundance come pouring in.

I WOULD LIKE TO TALK a little about what is time, because I think the
enrichment, the beauty and significance of that which is timeless, of
that which is true, can be experienced only when we understand the whole
process of time. After all, we are seeking, each in his own way, a sense of
happiness, of enrichment. Surely a life that has significance, the riches of
true happiness, is not of time. Like love, such a life is timeless; and to
understand that which is timeless, we must not approach it through time but
rather understand time. We must not utilize time as a means of attaining,
realizing, apprehending the timeless. That is what we are doing most of our
lives: spending time in trying to grasp that which is timeless, so it is
important to understand what we mean by time, because I think it is possible
to be free of time. It is very important to understand time as a whole and
It is interesting to realize that our lives are mostly spent in time- time,
not in the sense of chronological sequence, of minutes, hours, days and years,
but in the sense of psychological memory. We live by time, we are the result
of time. Our minds are the product of many yesterdays and the present is merely
the passage of the past to the future. Our minds, our activities, our being,
are founded on time; without time we cannot think, because thought is the
result of time, thought is the product of many yesterdays and there is no
thought without memory. Memory is time; for there are two kinds of time, the
chronological and the psychological. There is time as yesterday by the watch
and as yesterday by memory. You cannot reject chronological time; it would be
absurd - you would miss your train. But is there really any time at all apart
from chronological time? Obviously there is time as yesterday but is there time
as the mind thinks of it? Is there time apart from the mind?
Surely time, psychological time, is the product of the mind. Without the
foundation of thought there is no time - time merely being memory as yesterday
in conjunction with today, which moulds tomorrow. That is, memory of yesterday's
experience in response to the present is creating the future - which is still
the process of thought, a path of the mind. The thought process brings about
psychological progress in time but is it real, as real as chronological time?
And can we use that time which is of the mind as a means of understanding the
eternal, the timeless? As I said, happiness is not of yesterday, happiness is
not the product of time, happiness is always in the present, a timeless state.
I do not know if you have noticed that when you have ecstasy, a creative joy,
a series of bright clouds surrounded by dark clouds, in that moment there is
no time: there is only the immediate present. The mind, coming in after the
experiencing in the present, remembers and wishes to
continue it, gathering more and more of itself, thereby creating time. So
time is created by the `more; time is acquisition and time is also detachment,
which is still an acquisition of the mind. Therefore merely disciplining the
mind in time, conditioning thought within the framework of time, which is memory,
surely does not reveal that which is timeless.
Is transformation a matter of time? Most of us are accustomed to think that
time is necessary for transformation: I am something, and to change what I am
into what I should be requires time. I am greedy, with greed's results of
confusion, antagonism, conflict, and misery; to bring about the transformation,
which is non-greed, we think time is necessary. That is to say time is
considered as a means of evolving something greater, of becoming something.
The problem is this: One is violent, greedy, envious, angry, vicious or
passionate. To transform what is, is time necessary? First of all, why do
we want to change what is, or bring about a transformation? Why? Because
what we are dissatisfies us; it creates conflict, disturbance, and, disliking
that state, we want something better, something nobler, more idealistic.
Therefore we desire transformation because there is pain, discomfort, conflict.
Is conflict overcome by time ? If you say it will be overcome by time, you are
still in conflict.
You may say it will take twenty days or twenty years to get rid of conflict,
to change what you are, but during that time you are still in conflict and
therefore time does not bring about transformation. When we use time as a
means of acquiring a quality, a virtue or a state of being, we are merely
postponing or avoiding what is; and I think it is important to understand
this point. Greed or violence causes pain, disturbance in the world of our
relationship with another, which is society; and being conscious of this state
of disturbance, which we term greed or violence, we say to ourselves, "I will
get out of it in time. I will practice non-violence, I will practice non-envy,
I will practice peace."
Now, you want to practice non-violence because violence is a state of disturbance,
conflict, and you think that in time you will gain non-violence and overcome
the conflict. What is actually happening? Being in a state of conflict you
want to achieve a state in which there is no conflict. Now is that state of
no conflict the result of time, of a duration? Obviously not; because, while
you are achieving a state of non-violence, you are still being violent and are
therefore still in conflict.
Our problem is, can a conflict, a disturbance, be overcome in a period of time,
whether it be days, years or lives? What happens when you say, "I am going to
practice non-violence during a certain period of time"? The very practice
indicates that you are in conflict, does it not? You would not practice if
you were not resisting conflict; you say the resistance to conflict is necessary
in order to overcome conflict and for that resistance you must have time. But
the very resistance to conflict is itself a form of conflict. You are spending
your energy in resisting conflict in the form of what you call greed, envy or
violence but your mind is still in conflict, so it is important to see the
falseness of the process of depending on time as a means of overcoming violence
and thereby be free of that process. Then you are able to be what you are: a
psychological disturbance which is violence itself.
To understand anything, any human or scientific problem, what is important,
what is essential? A quiet mind, is it not?, a mind that is intent on
understanding. It is not a mind that is exclusive, that is trying to
concentrate - which again is an effort of resistance. If I really want to
understand something, there is immediately a quiet state of mind. When you
want to listen to music or look at a picture which you love, which you have
a feeling for, what is the state of your mind? Immediately there is a quietness,
is there not? When you are listening to music, your mind does not wander all
over the place; you are listening. Similarly, when you want to understand
conflict, you are no longer depending on time at all; you are simply confronted
with what is, which is conflict. Then immediately there comes a quietness, a
stillness of mind.
When you no longer depend on time as a means of transforming what is because
you see the falseness of that process, then you are confronted with what is,
and as you are interested to understand what is, naturally you have a quiet mind.
In that alert yet passive state of mind there is understanding. So long as the
mind is in conflict, blaming, resisting, condemning, there can be no
understanding. If I want to understand you, I must not condemn you, obviously.
It is that quiet mind, that still mind, which brings about transformation. When
the mind is no longer resisting, no longer avoiding, no longer discarding or
blaming what is but is simply passively aware, then in that passivity of the
mind you will find, if you really go into the problem, that there comes a
Revolution is only possible now, not in the future; regeneration is today,
not tomorrow. If you will experiment with what I have been saying, you will
find that there is immediate regeneration, a newness, a quality of freshness;
because the mind is always still when it is interested, when it desires or has
the intention to understand. The difficulty with most of us is that we have not
the intention to understand, because we are afraid that, if we understood, it
might bring about a revolutionary action in our life and therefore we resist.
It is the defense mechanism that is at work when we use time or an ideal as a
means of gradual transformation.
Thus regeneration is only possible in the present, not in the future, not
tomorrow. A man who relies on time as a means through which he can gain
happiness or realize truth or God is merely deceiving himself; he is living
in ignorance and therefore in conflict. A man who sees that time is not the
way out of our difficulty and who is therefore free from the false, such a
man naturally has the intention to understand; therefore his mind is quiet
spontaneously, without compulsion, without practice. When the mind is still,
tranquil, not seeking any answer or any solution, neither resisting nor
avoiding - it is only then that there can be a regeneration, because then
the mind is capable of perceiving what is true; and it is truth that
liberates, not your effort to be free.

This is an excellent website. Thanks to Nick Jouvanis for sharing
it with us.
When I was 25, I had a lump in my left breast that my gynecologist
suggested I have looked at by a specialist. The specialist could not
tell if it was benign or malignant. He tried sticking a needle into it
to determine if it was a tumor or a cyst
after the second attempt to
I declined a third painful jab.
He scheduled surgery for me and coldly told me, that if he found it to
be malignant, he would not wake me
he would just cut off my breast.
I left his office stunned and in terror. My then husband came home to a
very tearful wife. He consoled me and suggested that I read Kubler Rosss
Death and Dying
the book helped me prepare and I was very thankful. (This
is the best we knew at the time.)
The surgery found the growth to be a benign cyst and I left the hospital
gratefully with both of my precious breasts.
Six years later, the same breast developed another primary cyst with
offshoots to it that felt like tentacles. Again, my gynecologist suggested
the specialist who saw me this time was a different Doctor
(the former one had died of a heart attack while on vacation). This
second specialist scheduled me for surgery.
This second surgery was to take place during the school year (I was a
high school teacher at the time), so I elected to do it on the closest
weekend which was the weekend of Fathers Day. When I went to my parents
home to tell them I would be unable to share Fathers Day with them, my Mom
asked why. When I told her about the surgery, she walked into her bedroom
and brought back a Prevention magazine. She opened to the Mailbag page and
pointed to a letter from a reader.
It was amazing. It was written by a woman who years earlier was scheduled
for her second breast surgery. She wrote how she picked up a Prevention
magazine and found another letter from another woman who had been in the
same situation. The letter said she had developed another growth and rather
than do a second surgery, she decided to approach it in a more holistic
The letter said, she recognized the connection between the growth in her
breast and the stress in her life. So she made some decisions to change
her lifestyle and was able to lower her stress level. She also stopped all
caffeine, took small doses of selenium, vitamin E and B6 (which must be
taken with B complex). Within a short time the growth in her breast
dissolved. So this ladys letter that I was reading said she took a chance
and followed the first ladys suggestions and her growth also disappeared!
I thought if they did it, so can I! I took the chance. I called my doctor,
cancelled my surgery and started the selenium, Vitamin E, B6 and B complex.
And because I also knew Rebirthing (Conscious Energy Breathing) and Body
Electronics, I had wonderful loving friends rebirth me and do body
electronics with regard to the emotional-mental part of it which helped
me reduce my stress level by a lot.
Within one week, the spider like growths disappeared. In another three
weeks, the main mass disappeared. If I did this, you can too! While this
worked for me, you might say but what if it had been malignant? Since then,
I have learned many ways to address and heal cancer. I have passed cancer
out of my body twice. It is easy to do.
Dr. Richard Schulze has a 30 day program that can heal every conceivable
condition you can imagine. Call 1-800-herbdoc to order your information
packet. Also. the Hoxsey Clinic in Tia Juana, Mexico has wonderful herbal
treatments for cancer and other illnesses.
If this is you
if you have growths in your breast, your colon and liver
need detoxing and cleaning and the two above sources can help you to do
All dis-eases and conditions are healings and learnings waiting to happen.
Dont be just a cancer survivor. Be a winner and thriver. You can overcome
cancer and you are the Only one who can heal you. Look for options before
giving up your breasts or any other part of your body. You do have a say
about your body.
In Truth, Simplicity, Love and Service,
Om Shanti, Shanti, Shanti, Om Peace.
