A Seemingly Rude and Yet Positive Awakening (Interpreting a Dream for Embracing Life)
I found myself awakening from the strangest dream. It all took place in a dark setting even though it was daytime. It was sort of like in certain movies when it seems like the theme is dark and the sun rarely shines. In such a setting, even when the sun does shine, it seems to only peer through the darkness. This is how it felt in my dream, quite dark.
In the dream a very good friend of mine was working for my business and he also had a crew to help with his work. He and his crew were stranded on the road, and could not get to the next job. Not only was he trying to get to the next job, but he was trying to get to my wife (The beautiful lady I was with in this strange dark world) He was very much interested in her sexually and about to make his move. The two of us, my dream wife and I, were having some marital problems at the time and my friend in this realm knew this. And yet, there he was pursuing her despite our friendship, and in despite of his own marriage. It was surprising, and felt like a big betayal.
I soon felt myself awakening, not understanding why I was having this strange dream. I just kept laying on the bed asking why I would have such a dream, when I could have had any other dream. Perhaps one much more positive is what I would have expected. Then I remembered talking to my son about the movie Ground Hog Day, and how we must repeat situations until we get our lesson. This begged the question. What was the lesson in this dream?
Then right away, my page for the day came to mind. It was the very page I had read the day before in my book 30 Days of Metaphysics, Miracles and Enlightenment in Your LIfe. This was the second book I wrote quite some years ago. It is a combination of sayings and parables I learned from my teacher, and my explanations of them. Everyday I look at a page and make that my message. So do many other people who I know. It’s the way the book was designed to be read and experienced. And as I said, the dream reminded me of my page I had read just the day before the unpleasant dream. Oh yeah, the page I got was titled “When Sexual Energy Is Aroused, It Has The Power Of 21 Buffalos.”
As I remembered my page I had an aha moment, where I laughed to myself as I thought about how my teacher would at times ask, “Have you ever tried to stop 21 buffalos?” I realized that in the dream this energy had definitely been aroused, atleast in my friend’s case for sure. In the book it also mentions how we must be careful of the situations we place ourselves and our family members in. As I thought this, I realized something interesting. I was no longer upset by the dream. I was enjoying figuring out the message. I felt like the world was magical once again. I now understood my friend in the dream, and I realized how in my dream I was not careful of the situations I placed my “dream wife” and “dream friend” in at the time. I also realized that in my world I must pay attention to such things more carefully, and never forget that we are all human. I could see it all so clealy.
At this point I felt honored that the Universe was talking to me through my dream. I felt connected on account of my page showing up in my dream to give me a message. I was reminded of how the lessons in my book seem to magically show up in the reader’s world. Many times people have told me this was the case in their lives when reading and applying their page in the book. And once again I knew I had to share the book and the message of how spiritually connected we all are with more people.
I also remembered what I shared with my son the evening before. When Phil in the movie Groundhog Day decided to lean into the lesson, his life became grand. He magically became unstuck and was able to move on to the next wonderful day on account of really loving where he was and getting into the present adventure. This was the same thing I was doing while analising my dream. While thinking about all of this I was reminded that this is what life is all about, enjoying the here and now, looking for and getting the lesson, and becoming who the Universe wants us bo be. I found myself looking forward to the next wonderful lesson in my life, knowing I am magically connected to it.

Story about Dr. Thind’s Two Second Meditation (The Next 30 Days)
My teacher, Mr. Ambrister, would often speak on how his teacher, Dr. Thind, would be giving a talk in front of an auditorium of people. After sometime if you were really paying attention you could see that he was getting just a little tired. Then great meditation master would suddenly look off to the side for a second or two and be recharged with incredible energy and a magnificent light in his eyes totally recharged and continue his talk.
One day when Mr. Ambrister and I were having a conversation, after years of telling me the story many times, Mr. Ambrister shared with me that when Dr. Thind looked off for that quick second during his talk, that he actually went into a quick meditation and came back out.
The story always sounded like folklore or an unattainable state, until one day he suggested I did the same thing in an upcoming talk I had to give. I did try it when doing a talk for the Theosophical Society. To my surprise it worked! Just before giving my talk I took myself to a higher state, right before walking on stage, with this quick meditation just like my teacher suggested. I also did the same thing during my talk. Afterwards, over the years I would use this method and slip into my higher state in seconds to come back charged, especially in challenging situations when I felt like I was in over my head. The more we meditate the more we are able to do such things.

Life Is A Journey of So Many Choices (Today’s Poetry)
There comes a time when we have to choose,
What really matters and live from that.
The great ones live in many directiions.
When doing so be true to your soul.
Look for the shining star in your signs and your heart.
Remember your peace and live from that.
Be your true self outside of status.
When you are true you can’t go wrong.
When you look back you should like what you see.
Clear vision comes from divine meditation.
Life is a journey of so many choices.
Contemplate your soul you will shine brightly.

We see a trailblazer and say “That is me.”
We see a life lived that speaks to our heart.
We are being told “This is who I am.
I am meant to live in such a way too.”
Do not discount the wise inner compass.
Sometimes we don’t realize we found our way home.
When you find where you belong hang out with those people.
Then play your part and be true to your soul.
Back To The Future, The New Golden Age (Today’s Poetry)
Do you remember the Golden Age?
Believe it or not I remember it well.
At times I wonder “How did I get there?”
As I think back I got lost in the beauty.
Perhaps beauty is not the right word.
Lost in the magic of what’s behind the veil.
Lost in the transendental realm.
Where the Universe was on my mind all the time.
We came together in a world of peace.
We talked about The Universe all day long.
We came together once or twice a week.
We discussed growth and the spiritual path.
The rest of the world was far away.
When I came to visit I went back to peace and love.
I miss those days it’s part of my lesson.
I had less and more at the same time.
Perhaps it is time for me to go back.
Back to the future the new Golden Age.
Man I can’t wait it’s a state of mind.
I stick to what’s important and make that my focus.

If You Look Closely You Will Find The Marvelous Adventure (Today’s Poetry 1)
The Universe is trying to take you somewhere
Trying to guide you to the other side
So often this is hard to see
But if you look closely you will find the marvelous adventure
This marvelous adventure is here waiting on us to discover
The incredible journey is filled with happiness and wonder
Once we find it life becomes magical
Go within for the peace that leaves cares behind
The adventure is found in observing beauty
It is experienced in seeing the Universe bringing things together
It is lived in recognizing God is with you
It is felt when you let go and become one

An Inner Roadside Revelation
I was standing by the roadside when four ministers pulled up with the window rolled down. They told me how lucky I was to have such a wonderful church, as they pointed to the large beautiful structure behind me. As I looked back at the place that seemed to stretch for miles, I recognized that this structure was the one I had seen so many times within.
I always thought of this magnificent structure as a wonerful ashram or temple, that although within a dream, seemed to be quite real. This time I was being told that this was my place, where I was to teach meditation and share the light, and remind people how we are all one.
Right in the midst of this roadside revelation I began to understand that I have this same place right here, right now in my world, and it should be cultivated. When I came out of this dreamlike vision, I could see possibilities for the scope of my own ministry in a way which I had not seen before . I saw my blog, books, classes, and various ways I was to share as being that wonderful place I’ve seen so many times within. And I have to admit, it felt quite good.

Traveling The Main Road (Today’s Poetry )
When you travel the main road you can barely feel your body
As you move along the melody rings loadly
Continue your travels and miracles just happen
On the main road this is each and every day
Traveling the main road you are beyond time and space
Traveling the main road you sit with your teacher
Traveling the main road you fly without moving
All of a sudden you are in a new place
On the main road there is a wonderful flower garden
On the main road you can ride on the clouds
See all your problems taken care of, as if by magic
Ride the crooked tunel into the new land
When you step off the school bus everything is good
Things are being taken care of in ways you can’t see
On the main road you are more than one person
To understand this you must walk a little ways
