audio-book Review: The Lost Mode of Prayer


I got a great opportunity to hear this audiobook again while driving back from a trip to Colorado recently. I’m SO GLAD I did. I know I was inspired to listen to this material again. I listened to it previosly a few times and never really HEARD the message before this occasion.

I got it this time, at least to some degree.

I was blown away by the depth of the content and the influence that this work is having on our collective consciousness. Thank you!

So, we REALLY want WORLD PEACE? Then we can use the technology explained in this book to HAVE IT BE SO!

Praying FOR something to transpire (more money, better job, awesome relationship) only affirms that we pray from lack and that is our consciousness.

And, when we pray with feeling and seeing it already accomplished, then we become the creators that we already ARE.

This very worthwhile and crucial-to-understand audio book is 2.5 hours in length and I HIGHLY recommend it.

Here is a readers digest (35 minutes) version of the concept.

Remember that song from the 70’s entitled “Peace Train”?

Get on board that Peace Train as you refresh your memory of it here.

And get this audiobook cuz it explains exactly how to get on that train!!!!!!

The Afterlife of Billy Fingers: book review

Screen Shot TheAfterlifeofBillyFingersI just finished reading this book written by Annie Kagan for the second time and am even more convinced of its importance and transformational impact.

The Afterlife of Billy Fingers is the story of a man named Billy who lived a dark and troubled life as a drug dealer, addict and participant in the seamy side of life. He is killed while running away from a hospital in a drunken condition. His sister, Annie Kagan, starts to get messages from Billy a few weeks after his death. These messages describe that afterlife in a style that is both conversational and very credible. (A true story according to the author.)

This is a story filled with so much hope and allows us to see this life and the afterlife in a very different way than we may have thought them to be. It was channeled from a man who we might consider to have been a low-life scumbag if we came across him while he was alive. And that lends even more credibility to this narrative and the fact that we are shown how NOTHING and no one can be judged according to appearances.

I initially resisted reading this book because of the title just didn’t call to me. And yet, after seeing so many sections of the book quoted on Facebook, I decided to give it a whirl.

And, I’m SO grateful I did!

Dragonflies do it so what if we?…..

Dragonfly001  Did you know that dragonflies start out life as underwater insects, called nymphs, who eat fish and propel themselves through the water by forcing water through their bodies in the same fashion as jet propulsion? They are total water insects which means that they don’t need to rise to the surface for air like other pond insects. And, as nymphs, they live this way for a number of years. THEN at some indeterminate time they receive a signal of some sort that compels them to rise to the surface of the pond on a reed of grass and undergo an absolutely amazing evolutionary process that transforms them into air breathing insects that fly! Check out this great video which takes you through the dragonfly’s process.

Are you as blown away as I was when I first learned about this???

Remember when we thought the butterfly was a most amazing creature in that it evolved from a caterpillar to a beautiful butterfly? Well, the butterfly is still amazing. And yet, I think you’ll have to agree that the transformation from a animal that swims and breathes underwater to an animal that breathes air and flies is even more amazing than that of the butterfly. Yes?

The Presence Process: book review

PresenceProcessBookThis book, written by Michael Brown, goes on the list of books that will always hold a special place in my heart! That list includes The Four Agreements, The Radiance Sutras, and The Tao Te Ching.

The Presence Process is a practical guidebook to connecting with what Michael Brown, the author, calls Present Moment Awareness. Being present! Brown goes on to say that the purpose of The Presence Process is not to feel better, but to get better at feeling.

Being present has been a conscious longing ever since I was introduced to the concept in a book called Be Here Now (Ram Dass) which came out in 1971. I read and re-read that book and got it intellectually. And it planted a seed that was to germinate for many years. Oh, I KNEW I wanted to be PRESENT and really had no idea how to make it happen. I even got a custom license plate frame that said “I’d Rather Be Here Now” to commemorate the journey to present moment awareness although, on a conscious level at least, I hadn’t really started on that journey.

In The Beginning There Was Light: film review

InTheBeginningI just watched this documentary about people that are living (or have lived) for many years without eating or drinking ANYTHING. I first heard about this phenomenon back in the early 70’s while reading material from an alternative health perspective. They were claiming that people can live by extracting energy from the sun through the practice of sun gazing. I like to think of myself as open to whatever’s true and read a bit about it. I never actually tried it because the people in the publication were living in the mountains of the Andes. A week ago, I saw this documentary mentioned on FB and decided to get the film and see what was up.

Print The Legend: film review

Screen Shot PrintTheLegendThis flick is so much more about how certain new tech companies start and then develop than it is about the new 3D printer revolution. It could be more realistically called “Print Wars: the battle for dominance in the 3D print market.” Two new 3D printer companies, Makerbot and FormLabs are highlighted along with two older 3D printing companies: 3DSystems and Stratasys and the battles between some of the companies and law-suits that resulted.

I was actually interested in learning about 3D printing and learned a whole lot more about the ins and outs of growing a business than I did about 3D printing.

Tesla: film review

Screen Shot TESLAI have been very interested in Nikola Tesla for a number of years. And I can’t exactly remember what got me so interested in him and his work.

Perhaps it was that I was so into technology.

This film chronicles the life of one of the greatest inventors, if not THE greatest inventor, of our time. He is said to have invented the 20th Century and I quite agree.

Swarms: film review

Screen Shot SWARMSI watched this film last night and was totally engaged on several different levels.

This film highlights a number of different bird, insect, fish and mammal species and shows how they operate en masse. There is A LOT of awesome photography and I was astounded when I realized that a person with a camera was on the scene capturing animals that gave no hint of being viewed in their natural habitat. The photography alone is worth the watch.

AQA – Always Question Authority

MeAndSignHere’s me and my sign (They Lie We Die) at an anti-war demonstration in Los Angeles a few years ago. One of my favorite “words to live by” is Always Question Authority. I have learned over the years that I need to do this to stay sane. It took me a number of years before I questioned authority on why we went to Vietnam. (And I served in Vietnam)

Vietnam was a LIE that led to over 50,000 U.S. and millions of Vietnamese casualties.
