The Jigsaw – A Metaphor For Life

Recently, I felt impelled to buy myself a jigsaw puzzle. I haven’t done one since I was a small child, but when I saw them in a shop one day, a curious desire stayed with me until I eventually had to satisfy it.

Since there was no agenda to this exercise, such as completing the puzzle as quickly as possible, I decided to do it without looking much at the photo of the completed picture. Hence, I was going, for the most part, without a map. Instead, I was assPuzzle_2346 (9)_optembling the jigsaw one piece at a time. The only strategy I allowed myself was to initially search for all the edge pieces and assemble those first.

Apart from being a very calming meditative process (and highly recommended for that reason alone), I began to notice how this jigsaw puzzle was a very interesting metaphor.

Life is like a jigsaw, consisting of a very large number of colored pieces, and coming in all shapes and sizes. In fac
t, it begins with the very choice of which puzzle you’re going to buy at the shop. Many people believe that they were already given their specific jigsaw at birth, i.e. that they have a preordained “life purpose”. This may be true in some cases (Mozart, for example), but for most of us, we can choose which puzzle we are going to do.

In other words, you can determine your own life plan/purpose and then go about constructing it, piece by piece. If you don’t like the way the picture is turning out, you can always get yourself another puzzle and start on that one. You are not tied to any one life jigsaw, and you do not need to be perpetually agonizing over which jigsaw you were “meant” to be doing.

Assembling a jigsaw puzzle, and constantly looking at the photo of the completed picture, is analogous to goal-setting, where you set yourself a life goal, assemble all the disparate pieces needed to achieve it, and then go about building them together, while repeatedly keeping your eyes on the final visualized picture, in order to ensure that you are on target and that you are assembling and placing the pieces of your plan in the right place and order. Hence, this jigsaw exercise is an excellent mental training in persistence and patience within the context of goal setting. It can actually help develop mental endurance that you can use towards the task of achieving your goals.

Doing a jigsaw without looking at the plan is rather more like real life as we usually experience it. There IS an overall design and purpose, but there are MANY pieces – hundreds or even thousands – and your task is to make sense of seeming chaos. It often looks like chaos, and yet it is not. You may put some pieces in the wrong places initially, until you later realize that the overall pattern does not fit. Some areas, analogous to your natural talents, come together easier than others. Other areas elude you for ages, or you never seem to be able to find  the right pieces. You simply may not be looking to start on that piece of the puzzle at all. This may be in the area of your job, your relationships, your finances or whatever.

Yet, there ARE pieces that fit together in these areas too, and it’s for you to find and assemble them, each in its own place, to  create the overall pattern. As you do so, with perseverance and patience, the overall picture of the life you are designing slowly comes into view.

It’s often best to assemble several small areas at the same time, placing similarly colored pieces together in several heaps and then assembling them, rather than trying to do one single area all at once, in exclusion of all the other parts of the picture. If you take the latter approach, you’ll be forever trying to look for the one piece here or there that will attach to the mass you have already created. Moreover, you have no idea what that piece will look like and how it will connect what you have done to the overall plan. The entire process will become dependent upon you attaching pieces, once by one to the periphery of the mass you have already created.

The analogy is creating a balanced life versus overemphasis on one specific area of it. For instance, what is the point of massively over-developing your career if your relationships, family and health suffer as a result? What’s the point of being an expert on everything that’s happening in the latest TV soap opera if your job and finances are going down the drain?

We need to be working on all the key areas of our life at the some time to the best of our ability. You may not get it all right all at once, just as you cannot assemble all the areas of a jigsaw simultaneously. However, by taking the big picture approach, you ensure that you are building consistently towards the final picture. By contrast, if you achieve great success in one area to the exclusion of all others, it can be very difficult to later develop those weak areas, because your mind is so polarized on your one area of success. You have no references of success in other equally important areas.

One time, while my puzzle was lying incomplete, my cat leaped onto it, displacing the whole thing and sending some of it flying. It took me some time to restore it. This is also symbolic. We may well have a legitimate balanced pattern for our lives that we are working towards. However, the universe will still test it to see if we are really serious! You need to know that “stuff happens”, even when you are on the right track. You have to accept that as part of the story. Life is about meeting obstacles and overcoming them, and then moving on to the next challenge. You cannot play ostrich and bury your head in the sand. If you do, your life puzzle will never complete. Instead, over time, it will face ever more disruptions and eventually come apart altogether.

As you may have inferred by now, I would highly recommend you buy yourself a jigsaw puzzle (at least a thousand pieces) and go through this exercise for yourself! You may learn a lot about yourself and life too. It’s an excellent meditative practice, as long as you have no time objective on it, and take it one piece at a time. Keeping focused and contemplative is the key to success here, as it is in the larger puzzle of life. 

Uprooting The Tree Of Igorance

Avidya - The Tree Of IgnoranceWhy do we fail to do the good that we know we should? Why do we fall below our own standards? Why do we try so hard to make progress in life and yet have little to really show for it?

In Yoga philosophy, the term Avidya is used to describe the condition that causes this tendency within us. It literally means “incorrect comprehension”; better known as ignorance. According to yoga teachings it is deeply rooted in our being through repeated habit.

We know that any behavior, when repeated often enough, becomes almost instinctive. This is true to such an extent that we can even believe such actions to be outside of our conscious control. The misuse of this “anchoring procedure” is the foundation of avidya.

Examples include unjustified angry reactions to other people, chronic dependencies like alcohol or drugs, or self-sabotage just when we are about to make a life-changing breakthrough in some important area. The subtle thing about avidya is that it hides itself. It only ever manifests as something else. Its symptoms are everywhere, but the cause itself remains concealed. We see it as “life”, or the other person’s fault, or some recurring self-destructive habit we can’t control. The source itself remains concealed.

Avidya is like a deeply rooted tree with four thick branches. The first branch is called Asmita, or ego. This is the part of us that seeks its own interests. It considers itself better than others, is bruised when it does not get its own way, and generally causes us to identify with this earthly body and the life it is living. It has no wider perspective than that.

The second branch is called Raga and is best translated as Desire or Attachment. This is the part that constantly wants what it does not have. It desires what it does not really need and seeks to accumulate merely for the sake of it. It makes us unsatisfied and causes us to continually compare ourselves unfavorably with others. If we are wealthy, we are unhappy because somebody else is wealthier still. And so on…

The third branch is called Dvesa or Refusal. This is like the recoil response. Whatever negative experiences we have had in life make us afraid of repeating them again in case the same result occurs. It can make us reject people, situations and possibilities that just might cause us pain again. In one person, it may be the fear of forming relationships with the opposite sex. In another, it may be a fear of public speaking as a result of negative childhood experiences.

The fourth and last branch on the tree of Avidya is called Abhinivesa or Fear. These are specifically fears that are NOT caused by previous experience. For example, we may fear change, or growing old, or that we may lose everything we worked so hard to earn. In other words, things we may never have experienced before.

Avidya, in all its subtle forms, works within us constantly to root us in our habitual ways and make improvement difficult or impossible. The more we indulge Avidya, the stronger it becomes. Eventually, we feel that we are no longer the doer of these things; they simply happen to us.

A person can attract one disastrous relationship after another, or continually experience uncontrollable rage under certain stimuli, and feel that it is nothing directly to do with them. It is just bad luck. The person fails to see that there is only one person responsible for everything that happens! So what can we do? If Avidya obscures and clouds, it clearly must be obscuring something. Yoga philosophy calls this something Purusa.

In the West, we know it as the “Higher Self” or “Silent Observer”; the true divine spirit that lies within each of us. The task therefore, is to bring Purusa out and live from it moment by moment. By doing this, we minimize the effects of the four forms of Avidya. A Spiritual Master is one who has completely uprooted the tree of Avidya forever and sees things as they really are. Thus, one of the names for the Buddha is “The Awakened One”.

How do we increasingly live from Purusa – the highest within us? The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali suggest three methods…

The first is actual practice of Yoga – both the physical postures and the breathing exercises. If this is something you feel comfortable with, it is definitely worth considering. There are many physical and mental benefits to be gained from a regular practice of Yoga, no matter how simple. However, be sure to consult your doctor before even contemplating such a regime, especially if you are over 40 and have never done it before. Yoga should only ever be learned in the beginning from a live teacher. Books are helpful as a supplement but should never replace live tuition. Regular Yoga does progressively diminish the force of Avidya in our lives.

The second method is through self-examination. Regular contemplation of our actions and habitual thought patterns will awaken us to take increasing responsibility for our lives. Meditation is one excellent method that can help. So too can keeping a Journal of our progress. Activities like these can break the habitual stimulus-response cycle , and place that moment of choice back in between the two. In other words, instead of responding automatically as we usually do, we can choose in that moment to act differently. We become increasingly conscious and responsible, instead of remaining creatures of habit.

The third method is to create a certain detachment to the actions of our life, and almost become an external observer. Rather than being an active participant, taking our hopes and dreams terribly seriously, we become more like an actor in a play, playing the part the best we can. This form of spiritual detachment does not mean we under-perform in life in any way. It merely means that we become more detached and objective about the movement of our lives; less elated when things go right and less distraught when disaster occurs. In this way the ego, and indeed all aspects of Avidya, are progressively weakened.

In truth, all three methods work best together. However, one or other approach can prove immensely beneficial. For most of us, Avidya will remain to some extent throughout our lives. However, the more we can live from the true spirit within, the Purusa, the more authentically we live our lives. We relate to others better, make better decisions, and the hold of ignorance upon our lives gradually diminishes. We become the best person we can possibly be and thereby benefit the world. Surely that is the goal of life ?

Using A Journal For Personal Development

A great man once said that a life worth living is a life worth recording. With this truth in mind, let us examine the time-honored method of keeping a Journal as a powerful tool for self-improvement.Journaling For Personal Development

Firstly, understand that a Journal is not a diary. Although the line is definitely blurred, a diary largely deals with externals. A Journal is about your inner being. It is actively used as a tool for self-improvement, as opposed to passively recording events.

The benefits of keeping a Journal are that through doing so, you monitor your own internal processes. It can be used to integrate psychological parts within yourself that have long remained in conflict. A Journal can help you see the changing cycles within your life – processes that only become evident when rigorous self-examination is used. It helps you to remember your dreams, and begin to understand and gain insight from them. Most importantly, the keeping of a Journal puts you ever closer in touch with the Higher Self – the highest part of you responsible for creativity, wisdom and for orchestrating the events of your life.

In short, keeping a Journal turns your life from a seemingly random succession of events into a well-defined school. You begin to see the lessons in your life and put them into practice.

What is the best procedure? There are many, and it is really a very in-depth subject. In this short discussion, we shall examine a few ideas to get you on the road of at least starting a Journal and thereby experiencing immediate benefits.

The first step is to physically get yourself a suitable Journal. This should ideally be an A4 book with either lined or unlined paper. Don’t get a diary as you will not be doing a “day to a page” or anything like that. However, the book you buy should ideally have section dividers of some sort.

Alternatively, you can buy a file folder, corresponding pad of paper, and a set of dividers. Use the dividers to create different sections in your Journal.

The first section you should keep is the Daily Log. Here, you make brief entries during the day, preferably immediately after the event. In this section, you record any internal events that you deem of importance. Emotions, reactions, thoughts, realizations, interactions with people or situations, and the internal effects they had upon you. If there was an external trigger, you record just enough of it to make sense of the entry. The key here is brevity.

Even though your outer life may be relatively uneventful from one day to the next, you will soon find that your inner life is alive and rich and full of happenings. As you do this over time, more insights will begin to occur. For instance, you will start to perceive the triggers that cause your behavior.

You will become increasingly aware of how you handle yourself and how you could do better. You will become less “automatic” and more conscious of your choices in each and every situation.

Another section you should keep is a dream journal. Here you record any impressions, fragments or complete dreams that you recall. If you do not normally remember dreams, this procedure will help stimulate recall. Keep the Journal by your bed and record anything that you remember. Better still, tell yourself before you sleep that you will remember your dreams. If you still don’t remember anything, consider setting an alarm clock at some point in the night, and write down whatever you recall as soon as you awaken. If the answer is nothing, reset the alarm clock!

Dreams are one place where your intuitive, creative self – which can only speak in images – seeks to establish communication with you. Thus by making this effort, you begin to come into conscious communion with parts of yourself that transcend your normal conscious intelligence.

The next section is where you ask questions that you need answers to. These can relate to any area of your life whatsoever – relationships, spirituality, work, creativity, and so on. Actually, you are asking your Higher Self for the answers.

Write your entry here in the form of a question. Date it and leave it. Then pay attention to your dreams, the events of the day, and your own internal insights and thought processes. The various parts of the Journal fit beautifully together to give you the answers you seek. Expect an answer and it will come.

If nothing happens, simply repeat the process the next day with the same question! Be insistent. The answer will eventually appear.

The final section of the Journal that we will talk about is the Life Cycles section. You review your life and try to describe it in terms of the big cycles that you have experienced. It may have been a relationship cycle, an employment/career cycle, a cycle of religious affiliation. It differs for each person. Ponder your life and recognize the major cycles. For example, it may be your ten-year marriage,
your six year career with XYZ Corp., your troubled teenage years, etc. Within each major cycle, write the main events that made it up as a series of brief entries. If you do this properly, you should also be able to identify minor cycles within the major. Do this also for the current cycle that you are living in right now.

Of course, many different cycles overlap each other in our lives. The point is simply to begin to get a perspective on the major movements within our lives that have brought us to where we are today.

Being able to see the large cycles and sub-cycles helps you to achieve a much expanded consciousness and context for your life. You see how the events of life seem orchestrated – as indeed they are – to lead you to learn many lessons and gain profound realizations. You begin to realize where you failed to learn the lesson, and therefore had to experience it all over again in another time and place until it finally sank in.

In short, you gain perspective. In doing so, you become more empowered to lay out a grander vision for your future.

There is one final and important point. Your Journal is private. Therefore, say what you wish openly and do not censor yourself. This is the one place where you can speak freely so give yourself that blessing. At the same time, keep the Journal in a safe place where it will not be available to prying eyes!

This has been a whirlwind introduction to the benefits of the Journal, although a lot has been covered. Doubtless, other possible sections lend themselves to your imagination, as indeed should be the case. The Journal is YOUR personal tool for self-growth and should thus arise out of your needs and aspirations. If you want to study the subject in greater depth, there are plenty of resources available on the subject.

However, the important thing is just to get started and experience the benefits NOW. You have enough ideas here to create a deeply enriching life tool for yourself.

May it bring you many tender insights and blessings.

The Key Attitude For Success

There is one key factor that can do more to guarantee your success in life than anything else. Conversely, the absence of that factor will be a sure guarantee of a life of failure and almost continual disappointment. That key factor is responsibility.

It sounds like something your mother told you when she was giving you a smack! Well, she may not have been that far off the mark….

However, responsibility in its widest sense is extremely positive. It means that YOU, and nobody else, has control of your life. If you have control, then you can change things. You have the power. It is not in somebody else’s hands – your wife, the government, your parents, your boss, your accountant, the stars…

Responsibility is not a popular doctrine. Instead, the world is full of people who give away their power to others by refusing to accept responsibility in their lives. They make excuses and find someone else to blame for their misfortunes or failed dreams.

They can give you an endless stream of reasons for why they failed to complete what they first began or, worse still, never began in the first place. Indeed, our society seems to be set up to cater for this sort of attitude. People can grow up and live an entire adult life without once learning this vital lesson so imperative to their happiness.

The sad thing about this attitude is that whilst it seems to serve us well, it really does not. You may certainly get a sympathetic ear for a while. People may even agree that you’re quite right. However, in refusing to own your part in events, you give away your power. To whom? Everyone and everything outside of you. If YOU are not responsible for the various events in your life, then who is? Answer: other people, enemies, random forces of nature, the stars, fate or anything else you care to name.

If this is true, then there is logically nothing you can do to improve your situation. You are only going to get slapped down every time you try to achieve anything worthwhile. So why bother? Sadly, that is usually how people who take no responsibility for their own lives end up thinking.

The result for people who think this way is that they soon end up with “learned helplessness” and are rendered incapable of striving for any worthwhile goal. They lose the capacity to believe in themselves. Thus, they lose the vital capacity of persistence towards a worthy goal. The first stiff breeze easily blows them against the rocks. And then they point to their latest disappointment and say, “You see? I told you!”

It’s a vicious circle. However the circle is easily broken. The solution is to take responsibility for everything that takes place in your life. Even if you cannot see how you possibly could be responsible, it is still a far more powerful approach to own responsibility than to deny it. Also, from a wider spirit-centered view of our universe, there are many more levels to existence than merely the physical. Hence there are more ways in which we may actually BE responsible for events without our own limited consciousness knowing about it.

You may be very willing to own responsibility when things turn out as you planned. However, most people look beyond themselves for someone else to share the credit when things go wrong! The attitude of people who master life is to be responsible for ALL that happens. In doing so, they awaken to the fact that they are creators of their destiny; not merely leaves being tossed in the wind.

Here’s an example from my own experience. I once employed a solicitor to do some legal work for me. In fact, I had wanted to use someone else who specialized in this area. However, when I told my current solicitor, he insisted he could do the job just as well and beat the quoted price drastically. So he got the job. Result? It was a disaster. He was every bit as lacking in expertise as I had originally suspected. In total, it cost me two months in wasted time and also a fair amount of money.

Whose responsibility was this? Many would blame the solicitor. After all, he was incompetent. No doubt about it.

However, the responsibility is actually mine. The choice was 100% mine. I could have used someone else from the start. Or, as things began to go wrong, I could have terminated the relationship earlier. I did not properly inform myself to start with, or I second-guessed my initial instinct. By taking responsibility for this, by seeing the sequence of MY choices that led to this situation, I assert my own power to cause results and make the correct decision the next time. By refusing to do so, I give the power away to the person I hired. So it could happen again. It is obvious which is the better strategy for life!

Whenever something happens in your life, for good or ill, tell yourself, “I am responsible.” Then ask yourself, “How am I going to handle this?” However bad a situation may be, if you repeat to yourself as an affirmation, “I am responsible”, then you begin to look to yourself for the way out instead of to external forces. In truth, you are looking in the right direction. You are the true manifestor of your own destiny.

This is the way to take control of your life instead of leaving it in the hands of blind forces. It may sound hard or callous at times. However, it is not. You are not saying, “It’s all my fault.” Rather, you are saying, “I have the power to affect my life – for good or ill – and I choose to consciously exercise that power and take responsibility for whatever consequences I attract.” How much better than blaming the stars, or your boss!

Once you take responsibility for everything that happens, you build a firm foundation upon which to build your long-term success. Leave the excuses for someone else. Set your face firmly in the direction of excellence. Take responsibility Friend!

The Secret Of The Masters – Yours!

“It is only in the depths of silence that the voice of God can be heard.”

Sai Baba

It was Aleister Crowley who made a profound observation that I have always remembered from the time I first read it. He pointed out that there is one – and only one thing – in common in the lives of Jesus Christ, the Buddha, Mohammed, Moses and other great spiritual teachers. Apart from this, their lives and teachings were totally different. So too were the people they preached to and the message they taught. However, there is one unique experience that they all shared in exactly the same way.

Think for a moment what it might be. It’s not an easy question……

I won’t keep you in suspense. Crowley points out that all of these founders of world faiths, without exception, retreated into a wilderness prior to receiving and delivering their great revelation to the world. Jesus was baptised by John and promptly disappeared into the desert for forty days and forty nights. The Buddha escaped from the samsaric slumber of the royal palace in which he was born, and went to meditate under a bodhi tree for many years before enlightenment came. Alone, Moses disappeared to the top of Mount Sinai and received the ten commandments, and more, from the burning bush of God. The Prophet Mohammed spent much time in a lonely cave at night in the hills outside Mecca before he received the Koran from the Angel Gabriel.

Silence. Retreat. A Wilderness experience. Communing deeply within. This is the X factor. It can truly be said that prior to this inner retreat, there was actually nothing spiritually distinctive about these people at all. Virgin birth apart, the life of Jesus prior to this isolation is hardly even discussed in the Gospels. The Buddha was one of many Indian princes. You couldn’t have picked Mohammed out in a crowd. And Moses, though an accomplished magician at the time, and leader of a nation of homeless and hungries, still had his best days very much ahead of him.

When they returned from the place of silence and solitude, they came with FIRE! The flames of that fire spread with unquenchable force. It set light to the world. The truth they revealed differed very markedly, according to their own times, as well as the history and traditions of the people they taught. But it was new. It was powerful. It came from a place where most of us never go. It was divine revelation.

Perhaps none of us will start a major world faith or would even wish to. Yet, the power these spiritual masters tapped is available to us all. In fact, they are the first to say this. This power can transform our personal and spiritual development. It is the power to break the boundaries of our own limitations and ego consciousness.

Now, from this dramatic comparison of the lives of the Spiritual Masters, we have a strong hint of how to get there ourselves. It is through silence, withdrawal and inner stillness. It is only by BEING, i.e. willing to spend time with ourselves, to conduct our own retreats. This is how we can truly break through the barriers and blocks that prevent us from realizing who we really are and what our life destiny is.

If you need any more persuading, consider the following from some of the greatest minds that have ever been:

“All of Man’s problems stem from his inability to sit quietly with himself”


“You can’t teach anybody anything, only make them realize the answers are already inside them”


“When you go into the space of nothingness, everything becomes known”


“You can never learn anything that you did not already know”


“The Kingdom of Heaven is within you.”

Jesus Christ

An old story relates that the Gods debated as to where to hide their wealth of wisdom and spiritual power. They finally settled on hiding it deep within Man himself. They knew he would look for it everywhere across the planet except there!

Thus, if you wish to make progress in anything – spiritual, material, or even financial – the place to start is to go within. This is where the Inner Genius lies, the Higher Self, the Power of God. Spend time with yourself in contemplation. Wait upon that inner voice. Do not bring your preconceptions with you. Allow what comes to be virgin-born.

How different this teaching is to that of the world; even of the spiritual authorities. The Church will tell you that spiritual growth comes through regular attendance, good works, holy communion and other outward forms. The business world will tell you to attend more seminars, read up on presentation techniques, and jump onto the latest trend.

However, the wise person knows that inner victory must always precede outer. There are no shortcuts. This way of silence is tougher. It takes time and patience. It is out of sorts with the ways of the world, which is precisely its power. You may not even know how to begin or what to expect. Just begin. Schedule regular time for it. All questions will be answered in time. By You!

It is the way the Masters have walked. It is the way they recommend. Practice it yourself Friend. Begin today.

Self Confidence: Your Greatest Challenge?

Each of us faces obstacles and challenges in life. We invariably feel that our lot is unduly tough and that perhaps other have it far easier.

There is no doubt that many people do enjoy unprecedented good fortune from birth, be it a result of good karma or good fortune. However, they are the vast minority. Moreover, it is debatable as to how much a person can learn and grow if life comes too easy.

For the rest of us, we face challenges that are often very tough indeed. However, the greatest challenge we face is by far… internal. It comes from within our own minds. This is where our attitude and approach to dealing with life originates. It is our own thinking that shapes whether we see the glass half full or half empty.

At one Tony Robbins event, they teach the following approach: whatever life dishes out to you, no matter how harsh, reply by saying “Whip it on!”

In other words, no matter what kind of garbage life deals out to you at times, have the kind of attitude they would have in the Marines and respond “What? Is that it? Is that all you’ve got?” Don’t let yourself get downhearted and don’t give up. Instead, expect obstacles and difficulties. That is how life operates. It’s not personal against you.

To adopt this attitude makes a better person of you. Many people do not develop any kind of resilience. Instead, they are blown over by the slightest difficulty. Such people develop a level of fragility that ensures they cannot accomplish much in life, or be very happy for much of the time.

All of this comes down to Confidence. This is the key factor to developing this kind of resilient certainty and deep self-belief in your own abilities, your own right to do well. This level of certainty comes from deep within and can be trained and developed.

That is what my new program, The Confidence Cure, can do for anyone…

The bottom line is that the challenges we face from within are far greater than those from without. It is what we do with the internal challenges that determines how we triumph in the external world. Moreover, the only person who can challenge and triumph in the battle for your mind is… You!

Nobody else can do this for you.

Law Of Attraction & Hypnosis Mind Power

After the movie “The Secret” came out, many people became engrossed with the Law of Attraction.

If there’s a “secret” to attracting what you want in life, it’s only natural that a person would want to know what that secret was and how to apply it. Right?

And so there arose a plethora of courses and teachers of this whole Law of Attraction subject. A bewildering number, in fact! Some good, many phoney.

However, the problem remained: although the material on this subject is straightforward to understand, it’s pretty hard to apply consistently.


Because our minds are fickle. We have a hard time maintaining focus upon any single goal/vision for very long. And we often lack the desire and energy to see it manifest miracles via the Law of Attraction, or any other way for that matter.

Instead, we get distracted by our doubts and fears. We wonder why we’re wasting our time like this. We keep digging up the seeds to see if they’ve started to sprout yet.

So, our doubts and fears cause us to lose focus on our goal, get discouraged, and eventually give up. Doubtless, this causes many people to reject the whole notion in disgust as some sort of scam.

Maybe you’ve experienced some of this?

The essential problem is the mind.

It is through the mind that we have to work, and it is the mind itself that puts out your order into the universe, which the universe then has to fulfill.

The solution to making the Law of Attraction work…

… therefore, must be to engage the mind and bring it under control. In this way, it consistently works on purpose long enough and with enough energy for the Law of Attraction to be set in motion with force and energy.

Happily, the other day, I stumbled upon a powerful Law of Attraction resource that can do just that – bring the mind under your conscious control.

It does it by the use of safe self-hypnosis…

==> <==

That is why this resource is called the Hypnotic Laws. It employs hypnosis to boost your own mind’s natural capacity to make the Law of Attraction finally work for you.

It’s a very specific set of processes designed to create a very specific result.

Therefore, if you’ve working with the Law of Attraction, but not experiencing success… or if you’re thinking about doing so… this may be just the key resource that can help you get results.

Brian Tracy’s Success Mastery Academy

Deepak Chopra’s Genesis!

Here is an excellent interview with Deepak Chopra about his origins…

It seems hard to believe that Deepak Chopra owes his genesis to an attractive young female student who just happened to be sitting in the audience at a talk he gave at Harvard Divinity College But there we are.

What is clear from all this though is that this man must have the best karma of anyone I ever heard of. From what Deepak Chopra says, the success was relatively effortless and came very quickly, which is a complete contrast to most people. Very interesting interview…
