"If you could look through the eyes of your
creator, you would know how magnificent you are!"
Roy E. Klienwachter
Dear Free Spirits,
Welcome once again to this issue of Practical Spirituality Today. We must be
going through a high energy period as I have received so many wonderful
comments about my book, the web site and my articles. People are finding me.
It would seem they are searching the engines more frequently. Over the last
six years I have averaged about five to six percent of my hits coming from
search engines. Over the last three months it has been going up and now
hovers around 20%. I peaked out this year so far at almost 3/4 of a million
hits for one month. I'm not going to complain about that.
*Unfortunately, no one won the art contest. There were few submissions and
the ones that did, didn't follow the guidelines. No one wanted the $300
price money and recognition I guess, so I decided to go it on my own.
*If you're looking for a good children's book, a fellow author (Kimberly
Wickham) just released "Angels and Horses" (ISBN
1-4251-0215-8) Trafford Publishing. This is a self published author and
deserves your support--it's a great book!
*I have been preparing course agenda's for my workshops on "spirituality" in
the Vancouver area to be coming up as soon as I can find a suitable place to
hold them--details to follow soon.
*My current book was just released in Australia. It will be going into New
Zealand, Singapore, and Malaysia and hopefully Europe. They made very few
changes to the book as it was powerful enough on its own. They did change
the cover to reflect the awesome power of the book. They said it needed to
be stronger. I didn't think they would be able to do it using only
text--surprise they really did it--it's awesome. What do you think?

You’re Only Human
No matter how much positive energy you have, and no
matter how enlightened you think you are, there are going to be times when
you find yourself in another place.
All too often those of us who are aware of
our spiritual nature forget that we are also human, and subject to human
emotions, depression and negative energy.
You are here to experience the human
condition and for practical experience it doesn’t really matter how
spiritual you think you are—you will experience all things physical. What
your spiritual awareness or enlightenment brings to you are opportunities to
experience something really positive when things are crashing down around
you. All your awareness does not serve you and is of little value if you
cannot put it to good use in your human experience.
To maintain your positive energy and forward
motion it is good practical sense to surround yourself with people and
things which represent that positive energy. The more sources you have of
positive energy the more likely you will maintain your own higher levels. We
are surrounded daily by people and circumstances which offer us
opportunities to test this energy. These opportunities are gifts as they
bring positivity into your awareness and a chance to demonstrate it. You
cannot be positive if you do not know you are positive.
It is important you have many sources of
this positive energy. It is not good practice to rely on only one
source—sources fluctuate and dry up. Be careful to select people and places
which offer the greatest potential to recharge your batteries. It is not
important that you should always be giving, and the greatest gift you can
give to another is an opportunity for them to give back to you. It is a
wonderful time that allows them to express themselves positively—to
demonstrate who they are and it doesn’t always have to be about you—giving.
It is important and practical for you to
recognize when negative thoughts or events come into your awareness as early
as possible. It is you opportunity to turn the situation around in your
head. It is also an indicator of how high or low your positive energy levels
really are. It may be an occasion to positively demonstrate your wisdom and
turn things around in your favour. It is important not to be negative about
negativity. View these occasions as positive opportunities and not life
threatening events—you are human, and you are subject to human emotion and
feelings—it is a blessing, not a sentence.
My first realization of this occurred when I
was a young boy and I deliberately stepped on a priests toes several times
to get his attention—he was angry with me!
It’s OK to be spiritual, holy, aware, full
of positive energy, and still experience emotions. At the time I was
devastated, but soon realized I would also be angry if someone steps on my
toes several times. All too often we place ourselves and others on pedestals
and expect them and ourselves to live up to unnatural expectations.
The truism, "You’re only human" is a natural
fact of life. It’s good to remember it from time to time while you are
trying to be something more than human.

The Importance Of Attitude.
When it comes to the law of attraction,
nothing is more important than maintaining positive emotions and a
good attitude. These are the vibrations that attract those things to
us that we want in our lives. The story about Jerry the restaurant
manager is a fine example of the importance of attitude and positive
emotion, regardless of the situation. Jerry has a lot to teach all
of us, and I hope that his lesson will resonate in a place deep
inside of you and bring warmth to every ounce of your being.
Jerry is the kind of guy you love to hate. He is always in a good
mood and always has something positive to say. When someone would
ask him how he was doing, he would reply, "If I were any better, I
would be twins!"
He was a unique manager because he had several waiters who had
followed him around from restaurant to restaurant. The reason the
waiters followed Jerry was because of his attitude. He was a natural
motivator. If an employee was having a bad day, Jerry was there
telling the employee how to look on the positive side of the
Seeing this style really made me curious, so one day I went up to
Jerry and asked him, "I don't get it! You can't be a positive person
all of the time. How do you do it?"
Jerry replied, "Each morning I wake up and say to myself, Jerry, you
have two choices today. You can choose to be in a good mood or you
can choose to be in a bad mood. I choose to be in a good mood. Each
time something bad happens, I can choose to be a victim or I can
choose to learn from it. I choose to learn from it. Every time
someone comes to me complaining, I can choose to accept their
complaining or I can point out the positive side of life. I choose
the positive side of life."
"Yeah, right, it's not that easy," I protested.
"Yes it is," Jerry said. "Life is all about choices. When you cut
away all the junk, every situation is a choice. You choose how you
react to situations. You choose how people will affect your mood.
You choose to be in a good mood or bad mood. The bottom line: It's
your choice how you live life."
I reflected on what Jerry said. Soon thereafter, I left the
restaurant industry to start my own business. We lost touch, but I
often thought about him when I made a choice about life instead of
reacting to it.
Several years later, I heard that Jerry did something you are never
supposed to do in a restaurant business: he left the back door open
one morning and was held up at gunpoint by three armed robbers.
While trying to open the safe, his hand, shaking from nervousness,
slipped off the combination. The robbers panicked and shot him.
uckily, Jerry was found relatively quickly and rushed to the local
trauma center. After 18 hours of surgery and weeks of intensive
care, Jerry was released from the hospital with fragments of the
bullets still in his body.
I saw Jerry about six months after the accident. When I asked him
how he was, he replied, "If I were any better, I'd be twins. Wanna
see my scars?"
I declined to see his wounds, but did ask him what had gone through
his mind as the robbery took place.
"The first thing that went through my mind was that I should have
locked the back door, " Jerry replied. "Then, as I lay on the floor,
I remembered that I had two choices: I could choose to live or I
could choose to die. I chose to live."
"Weren't you scared? Did you lose consciousness?" I asked.
Jerry continued, "...the paramedics were great. They kept telling me
I was going to be fine. But when they wheeled me into the ER and I
saw the expressions on the faces of the doctors and nurses, I got
In their eyes, I read 'he's a dead man'. I knew I needed to take
"What did you do?" I asked.
"Well, there was a big burly nurse shouting questions at me," said
Jerry. "She asked if I was allergic to anything. 'Yes' I replied.
The doctors and nurses stopped working as they waited for my reply.
I took a deep breath and yelled, 'Bullets!' Over their laughter, I
told them, 'I am choosing to live.
Operate on me as if I am alive, not dead." Jerry lived thanks to the
skill of his doctors, but also because of his amazing attitude. I
learned from him that every day we have the choice to live fully.
Attitude, after all, is everything.
