Feeling Good Is Your Right ..... Claim It!

On June 22nd, I presented "Brain Jogging" to an Activity Director's chapter (20 in attendance) in Racine at St. Luke's in the morning and then went to Washington Park Senior Center to present "Feeling Good Is Your Right.... Claim It!" with Barbara Kruck during lunch hour (40 in attendance).

Barbara and I teamed well and we got another opportunity to present yesterday at the Tosa Senior Club (40 attendees). This time I had converted the presentation to my projector format. My son, Kiran, helpd me figure out how to do it with the differenct equipment we have now.

We got a lot of interaction and a positive feeling from the group both times for this "Feeling Good.." presentation. I think that we will get other invitations to present.

Silva Mind Control class

I attended a three-day Silva Mind Control Basic class July 16-18, 2005 in Libertyville, Illinois. The class had only seven new attendees. But the fee was $450 per person so I can' t feel bad for the instructor. No lunch was provided, meager refreshments, and the handout was sub-par. These classes seem to be continuing on the momentum that the founder Jose Silva generated about 25-30 years ago.

Anyway, I did learn things that I can use in my life. Primarily, the meditation - getting into "the alpha state" - is making me gain more control of my thoughts and not letting emotions take charge. When emotions take charge of me I become passive-aggressive.

Simple Gifts Lyrics

'Tis the gift to be simple,'Tis the gift to be free
'Tis the gift to come down where we ought to be
And when we find ourselves in the place just right
It will be in the valley of love and delight.

When true simplicity is gained,
to bow and to bend, we will not be ashamed
To turn, turn, will be our delight
'Til by turning, turning, we come round right.
