Quit Smoking the Easy Way – Our Experience

xsmokingI am happy to report that last January marks 5 years since I last smoked a cigarette. An accomplishment I am very proud of and I am going to share with others who are attempting to quit smoking but struggling with the task. So if you are a non-smoker you might move on to another site, but then again you might wish to share this site to someone you know that is attempting to quit smoking.
I found that when I decided to quit, created the intention to quit smoking, and focused on the task at hand the solutions came my way quickly.

I was smoking one pack a day at the time, and I was going though a severe chest cold which seemed to a fairly regular event at back then. I also had been smoking for over five decades, yes folks, more than fifty years without ever seriously attempting to quit. So here is my solution to quitting which turned out to be easier than expected.

First I met a doctor that had organized a group of folks that under her supervision had quit smoking using a medication named Wellbutrin. The instructions were one pill a day for three days and then start with two pills a day and continue to smoke. When the third day arrived I had already cut down from 20 to 15 cigarettes a day. I found that I had a reaction to taking the second pill and the doctor said to just stay with the one a day. Within 10 days I was at 3 cigarettes a day and seemed to get stuck at three.

Then one day I was on my Facebook page when I saw a symbol on the right side that was a cigarette with a red crossed “X” over it. I stared at the symbol because I never click on those “pages you need to visit” symbols, but I went with a gut feeling and clicked on it. I then went to a page about quitting smoking by Alan Carr and it led me to a PDF download of a book named “The Easy Way to Stop Smoking” written by Alan Carr in 1985. I downloaded the file and read the book in one sitting. I have not smoked a cigarette since completing the book. (Thank you Allen)

What this book did for me was to point out that all the thoughts about why I liked smoking or why that cigarette with a cup of coffee first thing in the morning tasted so good, or yeah there is a chance of getting cancer, but not me, etc. The answer is those thoughts are coming from your ADDICTION! Yes your addiction is pointing out how much you enjoy smoking and how special you are for smoking without any issues and of course you are so special that cancer is not an option.

So the actual quitting was easy. I found the tough part was about 2-3 weeks later when I felt an urge for a cigarette when a situation occurred that when I was smoking, would smoke a cigarette. I have talked with other people who said this was the part that when they felt some stress, they automatically went back to smoking thinking they would attempt to quit at a later date. My though was “I did not quit smoking to go right back to it!” So what I did was I immediately noticed the situation that was causing the urge and then stopped what I was doing. I sat down and started a simple meditation where I focused on my in and out breath knowing that the urge would pass in about 20 seconds. Sure enough, it did and the next time the same situation came up the urge was non-existent. I did this ever time I had the smoking urge and eventually it was a rare event.

These days focusing on your breathing during a meditation is called “Mindfulness Meditation” and classes on how to do Mindfulness Mediation are being offered by most hospitals across the country (For a fee). If you are luck enough to live in or near Redwood City California the Insight Meditation Center offers classes for free (Donations are accepted). Check their web site for more information

POTUS Immigration Policy – Separation of Children from Parents

The immigration policy that separates children from their parents by The Trump Administration, GOP Senators, GOP Congressman, Trump appointees, and everyone that supports the current President are wallowing in the depths of negativity.  It’s been a challenge since day one of the Trump Presidency just putting up with the nonsense of a president that has no clue what to do and seems to have one thing in mind and that is to destroy everything our Constitution stands for and to flagrantly abuse the powers of his office.

We have been silent in our posts here and on Twitter we have been outspoken, but after many hours of prayers and meditation we have discovers that falling in to the “Trump Trap” of separation does not solve anything.  This is a wake up call to the people of the United States of America and to all the countries of the world.  We see that many of the children from high school shootings have steeped up where others have not and they are doing a great job in getting gun laws to change.  We are promoting the American Voters to vote Democratic come this November so many of the “hypocrite” GOP Senators and Congressmen / Congresswomen (If there are any) can be replaced by a party that cares about people, not just the 1%ers, all the people both rich and poor.  It will probably take years to “fix” the destruction done so far, but in the end this country will be the “new” leader of what God has meant for us to be, “One country under GOD”.  (It doesn’t matter which God you follow, they all talk to each other.)

Many groups of opposition seem to be growing and this latest nonsense of separating children from their families went over the top in total abuse of humanity.  To top it off, it being done as blackmail to get a wall built that Trump had promised that Mexico was going to build, but as usual that has been bent out of shape.  The wall is more separation and how gullible is this guy?  If someone wants to get to the USA they will find a way.  Ripping children away from their parents and calling it a “summer camp” just shows how shallow these people are.

We shall keep up our mediations and prayers each day and we believe that “judgment day” is coming son for all these so called “people”.  Some will probably go to jail, some will probably commit suicide after destroying their family, and then there are the one that will face “The Man”.  Yes, the Man (God) waiting for your clogged arteries to explode, the cancer lying dormant in your body to wake up and show you what pain is really like, the arteries (Plural) shutting down around your “heart” to stop the flow of blood and a pain in your chest that is beyond your widest dreams,  one teeny tiny blood vessel deep inside your brain to pop and set off a chain of other blood vessels leading up to those main veins that will create a pressure in your skull that you will welcome someone cutting off your head to relieve the pressure of what feels like your head is going to explode, and finally the ones that will be hugging a family member and dropping dead in their arms.  Yes, just like the families with the children being taken away, the culprit’s families will feel the pain of daddy or mommy going away right before their eyes. They won’t die immediately, they will lie on the floor watching the family faces and hearing them scream for someone to call 911.

So my friends and supporters of our site we have to believe that The Constitution is based on the “LAW”.  Many prosecutors are working very hard to bring these criminals to justice and we believe that the Law will win.  Our forefathers weren’t messing around, they knew exactly what they were doing and this “bump in the road” on our way to complete freedom will be because we enforced and believed in the laws of our cites, counties, states, and country.  The most powerful toll we the people have is the VOTE, so please use it wisely and be happy we have that freedom.

God Bless America and everyone on this planet.  Thank you to all our followers and please join us in our prayers and meditations to bring a solution to the current events.  We specifically do meditation that clear negativity in and around us.

We have nothing to add except if you get a speeding ticket, thank God and be grateful that this country will overcome anything we wish to correct.  Want the speed limit lowered?  Vote!  Want to not be pulled over because you looked cross-eyed at the police-person?  Vote!  Want all people to be treated the same no matter what color?  Vote!  Want health-care for all Americans?  Vote!  Want your children to go to be early? That’s on you.

Twitter —- #MPRaccoon went Viral

Filed under: General Nothing — alaboutnothing @ 2:37 pm
Tags: , , , , , , , , , , ,

We happen to be watching the Weather Channel yesterday and they played a video of a baby raccoon that had climbed up the UBS Building in St. Paul Minneapolis.  The raccoon was up very high and climbing, and then stopped about four stories from the top to rest on a window ledge.  There are all kinds of pictures and some experts said that raccoons have no problem climbing building with an exterior of rough stone like the UBS Building.  This got our interest because the raccoon was so high up and just a little guy.

Then last night around midnight (PST) we were on Twitter and noticed #MPRaccoon under the “Trending” box and clicked on it.  It seems that people all over this great planet we following and tweeting about the raccoon.  All were concerned about the raccoon’s safety and what was the latest news.  We happen to arrive when it was announced that there were people on top of the building attempting to coax the raccoon to the top so they could capture it and give it food and water.  The raccoon was moving up and down the side of the building and at about 4:30 AM PST the guys on the roof managed to capture the raccoon.

We would guess there were about 1,500 + tweets an hour for a good four hours and people we concerned and completely focused on a safe ending.  There were people from just about every country on this planet.  Some said they saw what was going on and could not get back to sleep or some said they were getting up for work and had to get the latest news.  It was like the world came together totally focused on the baby raccoon’s safety.  We were in constant “tweet” mode with everyone.  It was awesome sharing and chatting.  Thanks @Twitter !

Just when the raccoon got to the roof and was saved by those guys we tuned in to @CNN “Early Start” and Dave Briggs said that in a few minutes they would be reporting on the “viral” baby raccoon.  Great timing on Dave’s part and Dave would probably be famous for scooping all the other news networks with this story.  So we waited, 5 minutes, 10 minutes, 20 minutes, and 30 minutes and nothing!  Dave did the “tease” and then DID NOT do the story.  Needless to say we were pissed and we Tweeted that @davebriggstv should be boycotted along with @CNN because they did  not run the story that hundreds of thousands of people were waiting for.  This is why Trump calls @CNN “Fake News” we guess.  They say one thing and do not follow through.  So Dave went from “famous” to “dirt bag” in just a few minutes.  It seems Dave got hooked on Trump’s plane landing and dumped the raccoon story.  Nobody at that time of the morning cared about watching a 747’s land, smoke the tires, and taxi.  They wanted the raccoon story.  Dave my man, your next job with @CNN will be the on the floating ice cap reporting on how the seals are holding up with global warming and even though the temperature is 50 below zero the penguins’ seem healthy.  Stay warm dude!

So the latest today is the raccoon was feed and checked out and released back into the woods.  There tweets still going but overall everyone is happy to see it was an awesome ending. When the raccoon got to the roof it was like a weight was lifted and he was safe at last.  Let’s give a shout out to the U.B.S. folks on the roof that saved the raccoon.  We thought that U.B.S. should have built the raccoon a luxury house and provided food forever because they got all that free publicity, but at least the little guy is free to roam.

We would like to thank all the folks that hung in there last night and we believe that the positive energy coming from everyone had something to do with a great ending.

We have nothing else to report except we are going back to the “trending” #MPRaccoon to see if the raccoon folks are as happy as we are.  Thanks to all the new followers and existing followers for support our blog.  God Bless all of you.

Belief System – Death (Physical)

There will be a day when we will be done with our path and our physical body will come to and end.  We don’t know when or how, but because we have experienced a NDE (Near Death Experience) we do know what the other side is like.  We know that our soul will go to the other side and we wish to have our physical body cremated, unless we die in a fire, then it will automatically be cremated.  We also will make sure that our thoughts and last thought will be of God and a peaceful passing.  We have had some close calls throughout our life and each time something always saved us at the last minute.

We believe that it was the work of an earth angel a few times.  When we were 10 years old and stuck in quicksand with a friend, a man came out of nowhere to pull us out.  We were in a place that was desolate and even my friend said he did not see the guy, but all of a sudden, this man pulled us out at the last minute.  We barely had time to thank him and he said he had to go and left.

Then there was the time we were riding in my friends 1964 Corvette and I was sitting in the middle and one friend was driving and one friend was in the passenger seat.  Yes, a Corvette is only a two seat car, but since we were in our late teens and invincible, the middle arm rest seemed fine as a seat.  So we were going down I-94 East Bound at around 120 MPH in the left lane passing a bunch of semi-trucks when one of the trucks ahead decided to pull out into the left lane where we were.  The driver could only do one thing to avoid a collision and that was to turn left and go into the middle grassy separation.  We were throwing grass all over and slowly slowing down when we all saw one of those Police “Turn around” roads coming up soon.  Lucky the “road” had dirt on both sides almost like a ramp.  When we hit it we immediately launched to the right and landed in the left had lane of I-94 like nothing happened.  We got off at the next exit and pulled in to the first parking lot and came to a stop.  On the passenger side there is a horizontal bar over the glove box called a “suicide bar” and we had to pry the hands of the passenger off the bar.  Nobody wet their pants but it made a great story to tell our friends.

There was one time when we had just soloed when I was taking flying lessons and my instructor had me doing touch and goes for practice.  A touch and go is a landing and then without stopping, giving the plane full throttle and taking off again.  It happened to be at Gary Airport and on a right turn out it took me over Lake Michigan for my downwind that day.  Then the tower called me and had me execute a 360 degree turn because another airplane was coming into my air space without permission.  At the time we were about 2,000 feet over the lake and the request shook me up, but we started the 360 to the left and found we were having trouble maintaining my elevation.  We were going down so we gave the plane more gas, but it didn’t help.  We admit we started to panic when we were at about 1,000 feet above the water when all of a sudden we felt at peace, calm, and our mind cleared.  We immediately saw that we had left our flaps down and we knew that we needed to put them up, but we had to do it slowly to prevent a stall.  When we stated bringing the flaps up we started gaining altitude so we cut down on our speed and got the plane under control.  We turned on “base” and then “final” and landed.  I was shaking and got to the terminal as fast as possible.  Just as we stopped our instructor ran up and asked if we were ok?  He heard the tower ask us to do the 360 and knew that we had not covered this yet in out lessons so he ran out to the tower to view or progress.  He said that when he saw us go lower than the building between the tower and the lake we were having an issue and tried to call us on the radio but got static.  The he saw us rise and knew were ok.  I told him it scared the crap out of me and it cured me from keeping my flaps down to long on a touch and go.  We both laughed and we drank about four Pepsi’s down in five minutes.  To this day we love to fly.

We used to fly commercial often and have been on many “Emergency” Landings, but we always had confidence that the pilots we well trained and we knew they were well trained.  Usually the person sitting next to us got very nervous, but we would always assure them we were in good hands.  This always seemed to calm them down.  Every once is awhile before take off the person sitting next to us would ask us to hold there hand because this was the first time they where flying and they were afraid.  We always said yes, of course.  They were mostly ladies because the guys we noticed were chugging down beer during preflight.

Of course there are times we all come close to death but we don’t know it.   So we go on with our great lives and know that God is always watching out for us.  We look at death as the completion of our path in this life and we know that we can take what we learned with us to the next life (See post on reincarnation – May 20).  Recently we were shook up by the suicide of Anthony Bourdain, someone we followed for many years.  In our teaching we have learned that a person who commits suicide will experience the same exact situation as when they passed. Suicide is an issue in the US and there are many organizations that have suicide help lines.  The national Suicide Help line available 24/7 is 1-800-273-8255.  Please call, you are NOT alone and we care about you.

We have nothing else to report at this time and we thank all of the folks following our posts.  We hope to make a better life for all and we certainly willing to share with everyone.  Just know that you are not alone and that we all care for you always and in all ways.

Namaste

Belief System – Anxiety Continued

We belief that anxiety in general is a product of expectation and anticipation both of these take you out of the present moment.  These are both usually something coming up in the future like an appointment and you are expecting some sort of outcome.  Looking forward is ok but expecting an outcome to something specific in the future is you giving energy to an illusion.  The minute you leave the moment you are venturing into an illusion.  We make it a point to expect nothing, that way if you get a surprise then it’s a “fell good” and if no surprise then you continue on without expending any energy.  This is something we are still learning and we have found that meditation is a great way to get back to the moment.  For us balancing our nine Chakras each week is our solution whether we need it our not.

We say “in general” because we are not taking about Panic Anxiety Attacks.  This is a whole different “ball game”.   Even though we experienced this for about 10 years, we “never” did figure out what brought the attack on.  They would come out of nowhere and about the only thing we did figure out was they lasted 20 minutes every time.  Well, let us eliminate the “never” word because we did find that if we were driving we found that if we turned on the A/C full blast it terminated our attack most of the time.  Maybe it was the shock of cold air?  We looked around for an A/C that we could carry around with us at all the time, but there are none to be found. 🙂 Then there were the phobia’s we created.  If we just drank a cold soda and we had an attack, we stopped drinking cold sodas.  If we were in a club meeting friends, playing Tetris, etc. and then one day we came across the “Many Lives, Many Masters” book and we changed our lives by reading that book.  If you are experiencing Panic Anxiety Attaching we strongly suggest finding a doctor as soon as possible.  You are the one that will cure yourself, but the doctor will guide you to that solution with or without medication.  Be sure to discuss meditation also.  We could go on and on about our experience but we will save it for a later time.  Besides, it’s in the past “in a land far-far away”.

Isn’t it interesting how Star Wars is a part of our culture now?  When the first one came out we stood in line for an hour waiting to see it at the theater at River Oaks Mall.  When the movie was over, we exited and got in line again to see it a second time.  We knew this movie was the start of something awesome.  Then there was “Jaws”.  We saw this movie in downtown Chicago at the “Chicago” Theater and we sat in the balcony.  The opening scene with the girl swimming by alone with the buoy swinging back and forth in the waves, with the music caused murmurs throughout the theater.  It sure got our attention and we swore that is we ever learned how to swim; we would never swim in the ocean.  That was another great movie, but we only watched it once in the theater.  We have watched the video many times. Since all of a sudden we are on a roll talking about movies we must mention “Top Gun”. My son watched the video so many times he wore it out and we had to buy another video.  We also made it a point to go to the Miramar Air Show that year to see the F-14’s in action and they did a simulation of the Top Gun scenes.  Miramar is no longer a Navy base, but back then it was.  We used to hang out at Black’s Beach north of San Diego because when the jets took off from Miramar they sometimes would head out to the ocean and just when they we over water, kick on their after-burners.  Our all time favorite movie is “The Matrix”, the first one. This was to us a spiritual experience when you look deep into the premise.  We can watch the last 20 minutes over and over.  J

So back to the anxiety if doing this post LOLOL 🙂  Breath, breath, and one more big breath to get back to the moment.  Okay, we also like Pulp Fiction, Done!  Like we said in our last post anxiety is sneaky and we make it a point to stay in the moment because that is the only reality.  This spiritual stuff does take work and we can only hope you are enjoying taking this ride with us as we continue our journey.

We rarely get emails but after the last post we got a few asking us to talk about “Sexual Anxiety”.  Because we keep our site “G Rated, and this subject can have so many exceptions, we will attempt to keep our belief text short.

The following text is in the “Klingon” language because of the sensitive nature of the subject matter.  We don’t want some wayward children reading the text unless their parents agree.  Yes, they can convert it, but that takes thought and hopefully they are in a big hurry and will skip on past.

Forbidden History–The Real Holy Grail (S2-Ep2) Science Channel

Finally a good show about the Holy Grail and they are not looking for the Holy Grail, they (Author Jamie Theakson) are exploring the many claims (About a dozen +) of people who say they have found the Holy Grail.  There is a major problem proving you have found the Holy Grail and that is there is no way to prove that Jesus either held or drank out of it.  There are no pictures of Jesus actually using it or drinking from it.  No witnesses either.  Some people refer to the “Last Supper” as proof, but Leonardo da Vinci  painted it in the 15th Century and he was not there, so that is not evidence, unless your as delusional as Trump.  Da Vinci is a bit of a trickster in the painting.  There is a huge discussion about the person to the right of Jesus with the very long hair being Mary Magellan, and not a dude apostle.

What we like best, is one of the “expert” commentators said “Because you can’t prove you found the Holy Grail, the Holy Grail you have is “Your” Holy Grail.”  The closest they could come is to date the cup and if it’s from around the time of Jesus, then there is a faint possibility Jesus used the cup.  If you think about it, Jesus was a simple guy and if the cup is made out of gold, then it could be a cup that was made for the dude who sent Jesus to be crucified.  That can’t be proved either, but the assumption that Jesus used the cup is on the same level.

The question we have is why is the Holy Grail defined as a “cup” or “Chalice”?  Is there a committee that decides these things?  Why couldn’t the Holy Grail be a box holding a piece of the cross Jesus was crucified on?  Or like we saw on a show about the Knights Templar, a container that the Knights have that is proof that Jesus did not die on the cross?  The Holy Grail is not like the Arc of the Covenant where if you find it and open the lid, you immediately die and the people that are with you say “Aha, we found the Arc of the Covenant!  Someone get around the back and close the lid so we can get to Fred’s body so we can bury him.”  “We must make sure his headstone says “I opened the lid and the last word I thought was crap!”.

In the show they interview a dude named Graham Phillips who claims to have found a small cup that he says that Mary Magellan put Jesus’ blood in while he was on the cross.  It did not have blood in it and there were probable about a hundred thousand Roman Scent Jars, but he thinks this one has to be the Holy Grail (His Holy Grail).

Then they moved on to too a cup named the “Nanteos Cup” which is claimed that you heal when you drink out of it.  The cup is medieval so it can’t be the Holy Grail and they think the original cup was copied and this is the copy.  They interview Fiona Mirylees who is religious and believes this is the Holy Grail from the Last supper, but of course, it can’t be.

The last interview they go to Valencia (Not California) Spain.  This cup/object is an claimed to have been created during the Time of Jesus and that several Popes have drunk for this cup.  Theakson suggests that the Catholic Church lets people believe that this is the true Holy Grail so they can keep control of “The Jesus Story”.  Wrap your mind around this folks, Popes have dunk from this cup and they act like it’s the holiest cup they have ever drunk from.  They roll their eyes up acting like this must be holy, but as we all know, they can’t prove it’s the Holy Grail and if the cup was owned by the Dude that sent Jesus to the crucifixion, then they are validating the crucifixion as correct decision.  Interesting uh?

They did not mention the Holy Grail from “Ancient Aliens” that says that OBSOW (Our Brothers and Sisters of Other Worlds) gave Jesus a fancy cup that had jewels circling it and was made of gold.  So we will have to wait for this validation when the squadron of UFO’s comes for a visit to our planet.

We have nothing else to report except to ask our readers if any of them are following “The secret to youth” that we reported in our “Belief System – Transformation” post?  We have been doing it everyday both before bed and in the morning and we also have been meditating to a video that  using 528 Hz returns human DNA to it’s original perfect state.  It brings transformation and miracles into your life.  It also helps in balancing and tuning Solar Plexus Chakra.  Sine we have been following this process we have had people walk up to us, usually couples, and say “We are attempting to figure out your age.  I say you are a young guy around 50 and my friend says that you are at least 60.  Would you mind telling us your age?”   We say, “No problem!  I am 74 this year.”  They both say “No way!  You look so young.”  We say “Thank you for the complement and God Bless both of you.”

We believe that this process not only makes us look young it heals our internal body, and we must admit, we feel really great these days.  It’s all about healing and believing that we create our lives as we all do my friends.

Thank all of you for following our posts and those who take the time to hit the “like” button.  We appreciate everything.  God Bless you all.  Namaste

Belief System – Anxiety Feeling

Hope all of you enjoyed the Memorial Day Weekend.  For some reason we felt anxious this morning and then we noticed the feeling of anxiety, which is to us is one of the sneaky feelings we get.  Anxiety could be a result of fear or it can be a result of an upcoming happy event like looking forward to going on vacation.  Ether way, it takes us out of being in the moment because we start attempting to figure out why we feel like this.  In today’s case we believe its The Universes was of telling us this should be our next post and so here we are and we no longer feel anxious. (Thanks Universe).

We discussed our Panic / Anxiety Attacks in previous posts so if you are having these attacks we strongly suggest you call your primary care doctor and discuss this or if you don’t have a primary care doctor, call your local hospital and get a referral (This is what we did).

If you fear going to the dentist because you just know that you have 20 cavities and that he is going to lecture you on your tooth care.  Then when he gets you in the chair and straps you down and tells you’re to open your mouth, wider, and inserts those rubber inserts that keep your mouth open you know that he is going to whip out that 3 inch drill and drill down through your tooth into your jaw.  So that’s your story.   Our story is we only go to dentists that administer gas or back in the days of Indiana we went to a dentist that gave us Valium. Te down side to Valium was we needed to take a driver but the upside was once we were in the chair the dentist could have pulled all our teeth and we would not have cared.  So with the fear comes anxiety the closer your appointment gets.  When you go tell the doctor about your fear, we are sure he will understand and want to make you comfortable.  We have seen local commercials from dentists stating that if you afraid they will use gas or whatever makes you feel better.

Then there is the “Dentist from Dental Hell” whom we had when we were in high school and he was our braces dentist.  He would come in smelling like he had just smoked a pack of cigarettes, in a grumpy mood, and we knew that if we moved in the chair he would tap us with that little rubber hammer.  Yes, a tap right on our third eye area of our forehead.  We prayed every night that our teeth would get straight faster than humanly possible.  (We survived)

Of course if you’re a smoker you are in a constant state of anxiety.  Do you have enough cigarettes to last until tomorrow?  Does the restaurant have a smoking area?  It cigarettes cost much more we won’t be able to afford them. Every place they go they plan ahead based on smoking.  They are also constantly thinking about quitting but putting it off until a later date.  Will the next cigarette be the one to cause cancer?  This is called addiction.  Please ask your doctor for help to quit. Your grand-children will thank you later in life.

Yes anxiety is a sneaky and if you’re impatient, then you know how it slithers into your head.  That White Rabbit in Alice and Wonderland was anxious, so if you can relate to that rabbit, then you’re impatient and not living in the moment.  (Meditate or catch the rabbit, the exercise will be good)

Anxieties change and the years roll by.  If we were forced to say what our current fear is we would say getting into one of those driver-less cars.  We identify those cars and as soon as you enter the car you become a “Lab Test Rat”.  Read the news?  Tesla cars are constantly crashing when in “auto-mode”.  After being software developer for fifty years we know that they can not possible write software for every possible scenario and we don’t want to be riding in one of those “death traps” when that scenario comes in to play.  So our solution is, “If a human isn’t driving we are not riding”.  Not even if they offer Valium.

There are so many possibilities of that sneaky anxiety sneaking in that when we notice that we are not in the moment, we do a meditation.  Like right now we are listening to this <Meditation in progress>  and if you like Tibetan Bells then click on the link.

Because we make sure to keep our Chakra’s in balance we know that if we are “off” we stop and identify what it is causing this and 99% of the time its anxiety that got in though our spiritual armor.

We thank you for stopping by and reading this post. Now that we saved you tons of money you are spending on Valium, Baclofen, Xanax, Metaxalone, FlexePax, and a zillion other medicationss, please donate the money to St. Jude’s Hospital in Memphis TN.

We have NOTHING else to add now that we are back in the moment and hopefully we have helped or reminded you that The Universe cares and Loves all of you.  Many Blessings my friends and enjoy every moment because we are experiencing it together.  (Did you notice that “nothing” is in caps?)

Memorial Day Weekend 2018 – Missed Watching the Indy 500 2018

The Indianapolis 500 was this weekend and we missed it.  Yes after years of watching we missed and we are nervous about what will be coming our way.  The way things are going in our great country with the Trump ICE Gestapo rounding up immigrants, separating the kids from their parents, and putting this country in turmoil, has us really scared.

You might wonder why we are scared and it’s because we are Hoosier’s and if you were born before 1979 in Indiana look at the bottom left corner of your birth certificate.  In very small print it says “You are required to too watch at least 20 laps of every Indianapolis 500 forever. This is considered a contract and your parent’s signature assures the execution of this document”.  The penalty for missing the race is they will send someone to hunt you down no matter where you are in the world and drag to back to Indianapolis Indiana and in front of thousands (More than Trump inauguration crowd) rip up your birth certificate so that you no longer will be considered a “HOOSIER”!  Our mug shot will be posted at all the 7-11’s in the State of Indiana and we will not be allowed back in the state for any reason.  We will no longer be allowed to sing the State song “On the Banks of the Wabash, Far away”.  Some people think “Back Home Again in Indiana” is the State song, but it’s not.  It’s a song sang by Jim Nabors sang this song at the Indy 500 but he has retired and this year it will be performed by (Not us) a cappella group Straight No Chaser.  (We actually looked this up on Google).

On the positive side we will no longer be associated with a state that Mike Pence was the Governor of and we can start calling the “Indianapolis 500”, the “Indy 500”.  We have a copy of our birth certificate (Just in case) and we will continue to call ourselves “Hoosiers”.  We will of course change our name and move to Lima Peru and become llama herders.  We hear the Andes are beautiful and we might go looking for some ancient civilization that might have left a few billion in gold in a cave just for us to find.  We of course will come back to the U.S.A. when it becomes a democracy again, but until then we will be shaving llamas and we might even get some alpacas.  It would be interesting to mate a llama with an alpaca to see what the result would be.  “Allampaca” could be the new name and hopefully we won’t get thrown out of Peru for this experiment.  If so, we have a Plan B and that would be to move to Sweden where the entire population has healthcare unlike the USA, no guns unlike the USA, no booze (except Vodka) unlike the USA, hopefully no cigarettes unlike the USA, and we could become “Swedish meatball” farmers.  A little know fact is that in Sweden “meatballs” are grown on a farm.  Go Google it (Fox News).  See for yourself and in a few years look for “Swedish Organic Meatballs grown by Hoosier 500” being sold in the Republic of America.

So missing the Indy 500 looks to be a huge benefit and should kick in some really great creation energy and we are looking forward to meeting people from all over the world.  If we are in Peru we can take a tour of the Andes riding our home-grown “Allampaca” or if in Sweden we can gorge ourselves on free-range meatballs.  We do want to take a side trip and go to the Vatican and meet the Pope, only if he will meet us face to face. (We hear he does not usually meet X-Hoosiers).

We have nothing else to add at this time except to thank all our readers of our posts and because this is an environment that can be accessed for anywhere in the world, so we will have plenty of time when we are in Peru raising our “Allampaca” herd or in Sweden growing meatballs.

Today specifically and everyday we honor the fine men and women who have served, and are serving this great country at home and abroad.  Our freedom comes from their commitment to keeping this country free and as you know, it is the home of the brave.

This post is also dedicated to Alfred, Mario, Frank, Jim, and Aaron, all members of the AAN Family that have bravely served in the United States Armed Forces protecting our G-R-E-A-T Democracy.

Nothing else to add right now but a HUGE “THANK YOU” for preserving our freedom!

Belief System – Dearly Beloved …..

Dearly beloved we are gathered here to watch the death of a once great nation, The United States of America.  Like the great Atlantis, negative energy seeped in and grew to appoint of destroying that great city.  The same negative energy has crept in to the Federal Government of the U.S.A. and has grown to create a cesspool of corruption.  When innocent children are being brutally murdered in their schools several times and the leaders do nothing to remedy this situation because of the corruption, we the people can stand-up and register to vote.  We the people can vote in November 2018 and get rid of scum filling the cesspool.

 In the mean time we are looking to our subscribers and anyone (Worldwide) who is reading this post to take spiritual action and heal our once great country by sending positive energy to eliminate the negative energy and replace it with the energy of God’s Love.  We have been in the middle of a circle healing and because the energy was so strong, had to move out of the middle of the circle.  With all of us creating this energy healing we can make a difference and we can send the positive energy everyday until the country is healed.  We are not asking for a full long meditation, we are asking when you have a few minutes of free time to take a few deep breaths and think “Dear God/Universe we are asking you to send positive energy to the Federal Government of the U.S.A. in Washington, DC. To remove the negative energy and replace it with your Love Energy, Amen.”

This is all we are asking.  When you’re driving to work and you get stuck in a traffic jam, right after your prayer to clear the traffic add the “Dear God….”, phrase.  When you’re holding your sick baby and wondering how you going to take care of your baby since you don’t have health-care, you pray to God for the answer please add to the end of your prayer the “Dear God….”, phrase.  When you wake up in the morning and nature calls and your sitting on your throne praying to God that you don’t get laid off from your job, please add the “Dear God….”, phrase. (Because you’re on your throne you can feel presidential)  If you’re a young teen guy and your in class praying that that cute girl sitting next to you will go out with you this coming weekend, please add to your prayer the “Dear God….”, phrase.  If your in England enjoying some tea and crumpets and thanking God for this fine snack, please add the “Dear God….”, phrase to the end of your prayer.  If your is Sweden on your way to the hospital and thanking God for the free health-care all your citizens of your country enjoy, please add the “Dear God….”, phrase to the end of your prayer.  If your in Italy and your thanking God that you Mother took two days of her valuable time to make fresh pasta for your lunch today please add the “Dear God….”, phrase to the end of your prayer. (Send us some of that pasta please).  If your in a car with your newly sixteen year old child teaching them to drive and your thanking God that your alive after they decided smash the accelerator to the floor to see what kind of power the station wagon has, please add the “Dear God….”, phrase to the end of your prayer.  If your on the South Side of Chicago and managed to dodge several bullets during a gang fight and your thanking God that you survived, please add the “Dear God….”, phrase to the end of your prayer.  If you are on a jet zooming across the country and your are praying to God that the young tot behind you will get tired quickly and stop kicking the back of your seat, please add the “Dear God….”, phrase to the end of your prayer.  If you’re golfing and you have just hit the greatest drive of you life and your praying to God that you will hit the next shot on the green close to the hole, please add the “Dear God….”, phrase to the end of your prayer. (Remember to not take a big divot because the blades of grass might contain souls in training)  If you’re a #1 Grandpa and your walking down the sidewalk holding the hand of your grandchild who you love beyond words and thanking God for this moment in your life, please add the “Dear God….”, phrase to your prayer.  If you are at a stop light and you are praying to God for all green lights from here on please add the “Dear God….”, phrase to the end of your prayer.(Might now get greens, but no guarantee)

Of course if you have more time than a few seconds then please join us in a full length mediation (30-60 minutes) by taking three deep breaths and then dedicating the meditation by starting with the “Dear God….”, phrase and then with a quiet mind enjoy the meditation.  Know that any time you set aside to say the phrase will speak volumes to God and The Universe and multiply the effect by the shear numbers of people saying the phrase.

We are dedicating this post to our dad who was a medic in WWII and was captured at the Battle of Bastogne because he stayed behind to attend to the wounded.  Then was transferred to a prison camp where if was assign to the make-shift hospital where without any medications took acre of the incoming injured as best he could.  When Patton liberated the camp he came home a proud American and worked all his life to help others and became a major voice in the “Prisoners of War” movement, the American Legion, and helped many people who needed jobs, get jobs.  My dad was a “PATRIOT” and even though he has passed, we are proud to be his son and we loved our dad for everything he accomplished for humanity.

We have nothing to add except to tell you that our dad back in 1969 had the foresight to tell us to stay in the computer field and some day we would have access to the entire world and when we have that access, to help as many people as we can.

God Bless all our subscribers and all that read this post.  We can change the world peacefully and we are going to do it.  Namaste
