“Don’t ask yourself what the world needs; ask yourself what makes you come alive. And then go and do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.”
“It is what we think we know already that often prevents us from learning.”
“If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other.”
2. Failure: Why You Need to Do More of It
Mistakes are the best way to learn. Every time you make a mistake and learn from it you get higher up on your learning curve. You need to be able to not only accept failure, but also embrace it. Humans learn by doing, you need to take chances and fully realize that failing is only failing if you don’t get back up after falling down. If you do get back up then it is an opportunity. As you go through life you will find that most people fail right before they succeed.
This fear of failure is in almost anyone who went through the public school system, and you must conquer it to become successful. In school you lose marks and get a lower grade when you fail, but in the real world you become smarter when you fail. You must always learn from your failures. If you do not learn from them then they are truly failures and you will never be able to become successful. You must learn how to turn bad luck into good luck. In every failure there is an opportunity to succeed far greater then you had planned.
The only way to stop failing is to fail faster, the more you fail; the more you learn and the faster you can become successful
““Yes he succeeded… But he almost failed!” So did Robert Fulton and Abraham Lincoln and nearly all others whom we call successful. No man ever achieved worthwhile success who did not, at one time or another, find himself with at least one foot hanging well over the brink of failure.”
3. Inspiration: A Helpful Hand to the Homeless
An older white-haired woman walks into a Lancaster Avenue thrift shop and bellows, “Where’s Trevor?” A 6-foot-2 guy, wearing a “Life is Good” baseball cap, a day’s growth of beard and an embarrassed smile, stands up and says, “That’s me.”
“Na-ah,” she responds. “I remember you when you were 11.”
He gets that a lot.
Twenty years ago, Trevor Ferrell was a sixth-grader from Gladwyne. On Dec. 8, 1983, he saw a news report explaining that it was a “code-blue” night, meaning it was so cold that Philadelphia’s “street people” were being taken into shelters.
“I thought it was one person who was living on the street,” says Ferrell, now the 31-year-old manager of a namesake West Philadelphia thrift shop. “I wanted to go see this man.” So he pestered his dad until he took him into Center City, where he gave one guy a blanket and discovered a world inhabited by thousands of hungry and homeless men, women and children.
“That played in my head all night long,” he recalls.
Soon Ferrell, his parents, brother and two sisters were making nightly trips to feed and comfort the homeless. Word spread quickly about this saintly little boy. Before long, his family was preparing hot meals and sandwiches for 100 people a night.
Church groups and service organizations started chipping in, filling the Ferrells’ freezer with casseroles and homemade meatloaf, pot roast and chicken dinners. A couple of vans were donated and volunteers took to the streets helping Ferrell make his nightly rounds.

4. The Karma Clearing Process of Energy Enhancement Meditation including the Kundalini Kriyas + AlchemyAuthor: Swami Satchidanand
The Karma Clearing Process begins with the removal of all Energy Blockages from the energetic system of a human being. Wilhelm Reich called it the Emotional Armor. These are the little stiffnesses which cause us so much pain in massage. Energy Blockages exist in the mental, emotional and physical bodies… Even in the spiritual bodies.
Energy Blockages split us so as we remove them through advanced and effective meditation techniques so we become more integrated, more solid.
Removing energy blockages from our spiritual bodies will allow us to access our hearts and our conscience, it will allow us to access our soul, our soul path in life, without which life has no meaning.
Removing energy blockages from the mind, the mental body, allows more energy to flow, we become more brilliant. Our minds become clear, our IQ increases and more.. We obtain the power of persistence which enables us to accomplish anything!
Removing energy blockages from the emotions allows more energy to flow, we become more stable. Our emotions become clear, our emotional IQ increases and more.. We obtain the power of having only positive emotions which enables us to radiate love, the energy of change and to access the will!
Removing energy blockages from the body allows more energy to flow, we become more energetic. Our bodies become clear of disease and pain, our energy increases and more.. We obtain the power of flexibility and strength which enables us to live longer and with more pleasure, more quality of life!
And what is that uneasiness within? Just what is that tension which we find inside?
It is pure spiritual energy which has somehow become perverted by painful traumatic experience. It is energy which has been transmuted by some painful experience into pain, that encapsulated pain which we hold inside us or absorb from people and places on this planet. It is energy blockages which makes us feel uneasy and tense.
All the pain caused negative energy blockages which we hold inside are called the selfish competitive ego.
And because we all have been painfully perverting this pure spiritual energy into encapsulated negative energy or energy blockages for thousands of years, this world is filled with that perverted negative energy as energy blockages which we absorb from everything and everyone around us.
It is that pain and tension inside, those energy blockages which causes us to do all the bad things in this world. It is that pain and tension inside, those energy blockages which causes all the bad things in this world to happen to us, we call the bad things, all the bad luck to us. We are accidents waiting to happen. This is karma.
Body stiffness, niggles and pain cause Illness and disease.
Negative emotions, mood swings, wrong thinking, jealousy, prejudice, hatred, anger, fear are all caused perverted spiritual energy encapsulated as energy blockages. The “Mind filled manacles of fear” as said Blake.
Splitnesses in the mind, blocked minds, unclear and plain wrong thinking. Heartless mind solutions caused by selfishly wanting to gain something to the detriment of someone else, the “final solution” of Hitler for example. If we have a lot of these negative energy blockages within ourselves it will cause us to give up easily, a lack of energy, a lack of goodness and heart and soul.
It will cause us to lose our trust and our faith in the essential goodness of people and our teachers. We will project all our negativity onto them and begin to see them through the dark glasses of our negative experiences. Through the darkness of the negative energy which we hold inside.
We create this negative energy inside. And as we evolve we gain the ability to absorb more of this negativity from the people around us and from our surroundings. We gain the power to hold on to more of this negativity without being affected by it. However, the straw that broke the camels back always comes. At this point we become open to wanting to know how to remove and transmute energy blockages. How to change negative energy into pure positive spiritual energy again.
When we enter into the Buddhafield of Energy which surrounds the enlightened we start to feel and lose this Negative energy from inside us. These are the symptoms of Kundalini energy usually.
Because an enlightened master has the ability radiate pure positive spiritual energy as well as to absorb and transmute this negative energy back into pure spiritual energy, a spiral of transmutation, a column of pure transmutation, the Buddhafield, surrounds him and enters into his surroundings.
As you people upon the verge of enlightenment walk around, as well as creating your own negative energy, you absorb likewise the negative energies of people and places. The symptoms of this are your illnesses, your negative emotions of anger and fear, your mood swings and your feelings of negativity.
The only difference between you people on the verge of enlightenment and a master is that a master knows how to transmute the energy he absorbs. And thus he is surrounded by peace and harmony instead of more and more pain and negativity..
He does not curse the darkness. Instead he lights a candle.
The only difference between you and a master is that a master knows how to teach you how to transmute this negative energy into harmonious spiritual energy, and thus place you on the path of peace and harmony, the path of enlightenment itself.
He only needs to teach you how to look at the negative energy. He only needs to teach you how to see it and deal with it. Because anything else is painful. And will cause you to do more painful things. Because this negative energy is Karma itself.
THUS THE KARMA CLEARING PROCESS, THE SOURCE OF ALL TRUE FORGIVENESS.
Spiritual masters are not affected by Karma and indeed have no Karma. Because they have the psychic ability to transmute all karma into pure spiritual energy. And this pure spiritual energy builds up in them and is added to by their masters when they die. So that they are rich because they have a large bank balance of Pure positive spiritual energy to spend on their students. This is called Positive karma.
Because the first stage is the access to purity by transmuting all the pain, which travels with us from lifetime to lifetime and grows more and more each lifetime because like calls to like, inside. To he that has, more will be given, said the Christ.
So we need to learn how to go against this law of the gaining of karma and negative energy and energy blockages by understanding and using the grounding of negative energies, the Third Initiation of Energy Enhancement.
And then the second part comes. Once we have transmuted this negativity inside to a certain degree, it then becomes possible to absorb more positive spiritual energy from the masters bank balance.
The Master can send it to you with a glance. We absorb energy from the Master. The Hindus call it the Uppadesa or the Initiation of the Master, and it is said to come by glance, by touch, or in silence.
Until we learn how to do it for ourselves from the Universe.
And once you start transmuting negative energy by using the techniques of Energy Enhancement every day. Once you start to access your inner purity… To he that has not, it will all be taken away, said the Christ. Yes, all the negativity will be taken away.
And this is the Real Initiation or in the Zen Phrase, Satori. And after many Satoris, you then eventually become in the Hindu Phrase, Twice Born, in the Sufi Phrase, a Made Man, You have made your Bones.
All with a glance.
All with learning how to open our eyes.
All with the gaining of Psychic Vision.
You are the people who have no other choice but to absorb negativity and die, or learn how to transmute it and learn how to Live. Because this knowledge is more important than life and death. It is for those of you who want to attain a Soul.
Start your Karma Cleaning Process by learning how to meditate and then speed it up with the advanced techniques of Energy Enhancement based upon ancient effective techniques of Taoism, The Kundalini Kriyas, The five elemental circulations of the Qi of Chinese Alchemical Taoism, The Guided Meditation of the Emerald tablet of Hermes Trismegistus encapsulated in VITRIOL and more..
