      Who You Are

      Before your mother knew you were in her womb,
      before any doctor, politician, family member,
      religious leader, or anyone else on earth even
      knew you existed, the Highest Power so loved
      you that he gave you life and protected and
      nourished you. Before you had drawn your first
      breath, the Highest Power had already demonstrated
      love and concern for you and provided all you
      needed for your wellbeing, and this continues to
      this very moment.

      Your inner Witness, your Real Self, has gone from
      the womb of flesh to the womb of the Cosmos. The
      Highest has made every atom, that makes up every
      molecule, that makes up every cell, that makes up
      every organ in your body, perfectly compatible with
      everything the Universe provides. The air, earth,
      fire, and water have been created in the precise
      proportions necessary to provide the environment
      needed for you to survive and thrive. The odds against
      this happening by chance are trillions to one and
      can be appreciated as absolute proof of the Highest's
      loving intervention and intention.

      Mother Earth is in an exquisite rhythm with its sister
      planets as gravity and motion balance their dance
      around Father Sun, as it travels in concert with the
      billions of other stars and heavenly bodies that make
      up our galaxy. Ultimately, the hundreds of billions of
      galaxies, in harmony, provide the exact perfect
      conditions that allow consciousness to exist and evolve.
      You are, always were, and will always be, the love
      child of the Highest Power. Every atom in the universe
      is presenting itself to enlighten you. The celestial
      stage has been set. It is for you to decide to be
      conscious of the cosmos and embrace your infinite, eternal
      identity. Royal Divine Child of the Universe, awaken and
      live happily ever after.

      Who You Are Meditation Technique
      Position yourself in the posture you have found to be
      the one that affords the greatest comfort to you, while
      letting you maintain an alert awareness without falling
      asleep. Direct your inner chatterer to be still and your
      emotions to remain in a serene state. With eyes open,
      let your gaze fall to any given spot on the surface of
      the floor or ground. If you are sitting on sand, pick out
      one grain to focus on. If you are on a carpet, lock
      your attention on one fiber. And so on. Witness your
      mind making comments, comparisons, and judgements, but
      remain unreactive. Simply let the gazing continue no
      matter how strongly your chatterer tries to discourage
      you. It will eventually cease and desist. As your
      concentration becomes more intense, with less and less
      effort, you will start to see movement. For instance,
      the grains of sand may start to appear to be giving off
      light that is flowing in a paisley pattern motion. This
      is the atomic and pre-atomic nature of reality presenting
      itself to you. Soon thereafter the air, earth, water, and
      fire within and without you will reveal their atomic
      unification and join in this dance of light.

      This will continue until your mind chatter stops it.
      By stilling the mind, the intensity will grow until
      the point is reached where it is not unusual for the
      experience to be so astonishing and overwhelming that
      inner comments like "Oh my God!" and "Thank you God"
      occur. Simultaneously, language becomes insufficient
      and only feelings of love and adoration suffice. Keep
      at one with the eternal silence of the inner Witness
      and you will know your limitless and total connection
      with the universe and its creator. The misidentification
      of your self as apart from the rest of the universe as a
      body, mind, or feeling will evaporate like a fog lifting,
      and there revealed in all glory will be the divine Garden
      of Eden that has always been present. And you will live
      happily ever after.

      After Thought
      Half a century ago, on one of TV's first variety shows,
      the Ed Sullivan Show, a ventriloquist named Senor Wences
      used to have a running gag with his puppet (which was
      simply his hand with some lipstick on it, to make it look
      like a face). He would say, "That's easy to do!" about
      various things, and his hand puppet would answer "Easy
      for you, difficult for me!" in a Spanish dialect. This
      always made the audience convulse with laughter. But in
      real life, when things are easy for someone else, but
      difficult for you, you rarely find it humorous. As a
      matter of fact, adjectives like frustrating, annoying,
      ego deflating, and so on, are often much more accurate
      descriptions of how you feel. The Who You Are Meditation
      Technique has the potential to be in this category. It
      is easy to tell someone "Sit comfortably, concentrate,
      and let the Highest Power fill you with all the wonders
      and wisdom of the universe". But can you actually sit
      comfortably enough, for long enough for your attention
      to remain focused enough? If so, this and every other
      technique will "work". If not, like most things, the
      more you practice, the better you will get. Persevere,
      because unlike most things, the end result of this and
      every meditative effort has the potential to lead to
      the end of all effort. And effortlessly, you will live
      happily ever after.

        Hypnotic Selling Techniques

        Read the following sale's pitch:

        Does public speaking make you nervous? What if it was easy? Imagine
        standing at the podium, knowing exactly what to say to make them love
        you. Wouldn't that feel great? Just apply our simple methods, and
        you'll have that power. Use the form below to order right now.

        Okay, let's dissect the sales pitch above.

        Line 1: It gets you to say yes, which is habit forming.

        Line 2: It suggests the possibility of a solution.

        Line 3: The word "imagine" gets you to do just that.

        Line 4: Line four suggests a positive emotion and gets another yes.

        Line 5: It uses "and" to infer cause and effect (you'll have the power
        because you used our product).

        Line 6: This last line directs you with "Use the form below." The part
        that says "order right now" is called an "embedded command," because
        putting it in italics influences you (subtly commands you) without you
        noticing consciously.

        That paragraph uses six or more "hypnotic sales techniques." They
        work, by the way. I have forty such techniques in my notes in front of
        me. When I used them to rewrite the sign-up page for the Brain Power
        Newsletter in March of 2005, I started to get four times as many
        subscribers from the same traffic. Powerful stuff. Start watching for
        it - or using it (with good intentions I hope).

            Who You Are

            Before your mother knew you were in her womb,
            before any doctor, politician, family member,
            religious leader, or anyone else on earth even

              Who You Are Meditation Technique

              Position yourself in the posture you have
              found to be the one that affords the greatest
              comfort to you, while letting you maintain an
              alert awareness without falling asleep. Direct
              your inner chatterer to be still and your emotions
              to remain in a serene state.

              With eyes open, let your gaze fall to any
              given spot on the surface of the floor or ground.
              If you are sitting on sand, pick out one grain
              to focus on. If you are on a carpet, lock your
              attention on one fiber. And so on. Witness your
              mind making comments, comparisons, and judgements,
              but remain unreactive.

              Simply let the gazing continue no matter
              how strongly your chatterer tries to discourage
              you. It will eventually cease and desist. As
              your concentration becomes more intense, with
              less and less effort, you will start to see movement.

              For instance, the grains of sand may
              start to appear to be giving off light that
              is flowing in a paisley pattern motion. This
              is the atomic and pre-atomic nature of reality
              presenting itself to you. Soon thereafter the
              air, earth, water, and fire within and without
              you will reveal their atomic unification and
              join in this dance of light.

              This will continue until your mind chatter
              stops it. By stilling the mind, the intensity
              will grow until the point is reached where it
              is not unusual for the experience to be so
              astonishing and overwhelming that inner comments
              like "Oh my God!" and "Thank you God" occur.

              Simultaneously, language becomes insufficient
              and only feelings of love and adoration suffice.
              Keep at one with the eternal silence of the
              inner Witness and you will know your limitless
              and total connection with the universe and its creator.

              The misidentification of your self as apart
              from the rest of the universe as a body, mind,
              or feeling will evaporate like a fog lifting, and
              there revealed in all glory will be the divine
              Garden of Eden that has always been present.
              And you will live happily ever after.

              This always made the audience convulse with
              laughter. But in real life, when things are easy
              for someone else, but difficult for you, you
              rarely find it humorous.

              As a matter of fact, adjectives like
              frustrating, annoying, ego deflating, and so
              on, are often much more accurate descriptions
              of how you feel. The Who You Are Meditation
              Technique has the potential to be in this
              category. It is easy to tell someone "Sit comfortably,
              concentrate, and let the Highest Power fill you
              with all the wonders and wisdom of the universe".

              But can you actually sit comfortably enough,
              for long enough for your attention to remain
              focused enough? If so, this and every other
              technique will "work". If not, like most things,
              the more you practice, the better you will get.
              Persevere, because unlike most things, the end
              result of this and every meditative effort has
              the potential to lead to the end of all effort.
              And effortlessly, you will live happily ever after.

                  Thanks Papajeff, much appreciated!
                  BTW, what's happening with your October
                  Enlightened Healer Symposium? Last I heard
                  you had commitments from more than a dozen
                  different world-class healers to share their
                  wisdom. Are the dates and location set?
                  Peace and blessing,
                  Bob
