Editor's Notes...

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 bAustralian Covere 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

4/30/07

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.

Namaste

The Importance Of Attitude.

By: Dwayne Gilbert

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 situation.

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 really scared.

In their eyes, I read 'he's a dead man'. I knew I needed to take action."

"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.
