How one thinks and what one thinks about is very important because thoughts going out have power, or emanations which are minute particles going out into the atmosphere.
These thoughts, after the initial force of projection is expanded, float along like clouds mixing with other thought waves of the same character, and these in many cases extend to far distant parts of the Earth.
Some thought emanations remain close to where they were sent forth, and unless they are disturbed by other strong thoughts of a contrary nature, they will remain slightly charged for many years.
Thoughts sent forth with a definite purpose, or under a strong desire, emotion or passion, will go forth rapidly toward the object to whom they are directed.
Very few persons put any force or power into their thoughts, and thinking with them becomes a mechanical process, as their thoughts do not travel anywhere to speak of, unless they are drawn by someone of a similar nature or similar thoughts who attracts them to himself.
Some people spend their entire lives avoiding thinking; they only think in cases of emergency and they spend most of their lives trying to avoid an emergency.
Thoughts are really things just as much as light, heat or electricity, etc., are things. (energy)
Also, thoughts can be seen by psychic sight, and they can also be felt.
Thoughts going out also carry the color belonging to it, such as anger which is dark red, murderous thoughts as dark muddy red, etc.
Thoughts have power and they affect people.
Thoughts going forth with strength, in most cases carry with it a certain amount of prana, and this gives them additional strength and power, and often produces startling results.
The prana has the ability to vitalize thoughts and, in some cases, makes it almost a living force.
This again, to produce certain results depends upon the strength with which the thought has been projected.
There is another element of strength which also allows thoughts to manifest power.
This is the fact that thoughts have the tendency to attract to itself other thoughts of a similar nature, and thus combine force.
Mob psychology is an example.
Thereby thoughts have a tendency to flock together, or to coalesce, or blend with each other.
The average thought-atmosphere of a community is the composite thoughts of the people living in that community.
So places, like people, do have their peculiarities, their characteristics, their strong and weak points, or their prevailing atmosphere.

People coming to such a community, either find themselves in harmony with their own mental character, or they don't, in which case they feel uncomfortable and soon leave the place if it is possible.
It is also true that a person new in a place may not be in harmony with the prevailing thought-atmosphere.
Yet, if he/she stays there a charge begins to be manifested in him and he/she rises or, as they case may be, sinks to the level of the prevailing thought of the area or community.
The thoughts of one strong thinker will overcome the weak meaningless thoughts of a great number of people who send forth only negative thoughts.
Hence the saying, to accentuate the positive and not the negative, for the positive is a sure antidote for the negative.
The spirit of a nation is a composite of the spirit of its people and the leader of a nation is the voice of the thinking of the people.
Strong thoughts or positive thinking produces a strong nation, and visa versa.
The collected thinking of people form thought strata in the astral, the same as clouds form in groups of clouds in the sky here on earth.
On the astral each stratum of thought does not occupy a certain portion of space to the exclusion of all other thought clouds; rather, these thought particles forming the clouds are of different degrees of vibrations.
So, the same space may be filled with thought matter of numerous kinds, passing freely about and interpenetrating each other without interference with each other.
Another great truth is that you are as you think.
If one thinks in a positive manner, one then attracts unto himself/herself thoughts from a positive cloud mass, and visa versa.
Hate groups are formed of persons who have harbored thoughts of hate or malice for some time and eventually they are attracted to each other, and as a group are given an opportunity to manifest these thoughts into action.
This same procedure produces wars, which start with great energy, are exhausted, and many lives are lost.
Now is the time when we have the opportunity to move into much higher thinking of peace, sharing, harmony and love in this world.
As we think this way we will draw on higher and higher thoughts in inner space, and in turn become cosmic.
If one continues to think in a certain vein, he/she will eventually attract to himself/herself circumstances and conditions which will make it possible to manifest his thoughts into action, and to make use of the thoughts he/she has been harboring - good bad or indifferent.
A person possessing power or a strong will, will send forth a powerful thought and with it a supply of prana in proportion to the power or force of the thought.
Also, a powerful thinker, whose thought is charged strongly with prana, often creates thought forms, that is, thoughts having such vitality become like living forces and they possess nearly the same power that the person creating them has.
The higher the order of thought, the stronger it is.
There are many thought forms sent out of all descriptions, low and evil, or high and loving.
However, as long as one maintains thoughts of love, he/she will repel the strongest thought-wave which may be directed against him, or which might be encountered in the astral, and he/she will only respond to thoughts coming from a very high source, which will greatly benefit him.
Low thoughts, aims and ambitions come only from those of low consciousness and through selfishness; such cause most of the trouble that exists in this world.
Again, those of high spiritual development are constantly sending forth thought waves of love, strength and help. They are forever dedicated to helping humanity, and those who need help receive it if they are sincere.
Those who send forth thoughts of evil and destruction, or desire to injure someone, are usually injured themselves. For evil thoughts sent to someone who is spiritual rebound back to the sender.
This is why it is said that if someone would harm you, do not respond, as that has already been taken care of through the immutable law of cause and effect.

This is why, in my opinion, an area like this, with a VERY diverse group of people, can be in such harmony with those of such differing beliefs, getting along and basing most of what is done on a love of others rather than a "what can I get" attitude.  We each have an ego that WANTS attention and in some cases glory, but living, acting and reacting from the heart rather than the thought processes of the ego can and does make a grand difference!  Be careful of what you "think" or at least HOW you think it.  :-)
  (Note: I HAVE edited this a little but the original is linked a little above here at maharishiphotos dot com.)



(Feb 2010)  Those of you not in to any kind of spiritual thinking should take a good look at the alternative new sources, SOME of the channeled messages and a lot of information around the Mayan Calendar.  While I am NOT one of those thinking the world is going to end in 1012,  I DO believe we are in for a major change to the way we live, think and act towards others.  Anger, hate and vengeance can no longer be the rule.  Greed and dishonesty are going to become a thing of the past.  Love (and I don't mean lust) is going to HAVE to rule the way we think and act or we simply aren't going to be around much longer.  Compassion, gratitude and understanding (not liking, but understanding) will be the way we live or we won't live.   After doing a lot of reading (studying or research) I am of the opinion that the Mayan calendar ends it's cycle in 2011, not 2012 and the cycles that started by taking millions of years to go through the days and nights (7 days and 6 nights for each cycle) will in 2011 take a whole 20 DAYS per day/night.  We as a people, world wide, have got to stop following the (ANY) party line, doing what "they" want and start thinking for ourselves.  Rely on intuition more than your thoughts and let your feelings be more of a guide than in the past.  As things get faster (evolution as described in the Mayan calendar) we won't have time to "think" things through and our intuition will be what saves us from major mistakes.   If you are at all interested, you can send me an Email and I will forward some of the information I have (or links to it).


Just some thoughts, ideas and other fun or "BS" I've found along the way.  If you've read the Rules page, I figure you need to know I'm not really as mean and rotten as I come across there.  :-)  But then again, the first 19 here are yet MORE rules... As I get new "stuff" it will go to the bottom of this page.

Click here for a little magic card trick...   If you know how it works, drop me an E-Mail so I can congratulate you. :-)

The next one is a LONG one... 

Reasons why the English language is so hard to learn:
A bandage is wound around the wound.
A farm is used to produce produce.
The dump was so full that it had to refuse more refuse.
We must polish the Polish furniture.
He could lead if he would get the lead out.
The soldier decided to desert his dessert in the desert.
Since there is no time like the present, he thought it was time to present the present.
A bass was painted on the head of the bass drum.
When shot at, the dove dove into the bushes.
I did not object to the object.
The insurance was invalid for the invalid.
There was a row among the oarsmen about how to row.
They were too close to the door to close it.
The buck does funny things when the does are present.
A seamstress and a sewer fell down into a sewer line.
To help with planting, the farmer taught his sow to sow.
The wind was too strong to wind the sail.
After a number of injections my jaw got number.
Upon seeing the tear in the painting I shed a tear.
I had to subject the subject to a series of tests.
He's a Polish Polish teacher. He's a Polish English teacher. He's an English Polish teacher. He's..aw...forget It!
How can I intimate this to my most intimate friend who wears intimates (ooooops!!!!!!)?
Let's face it - English is a crazy language.
There is no egg in eggplant nor ham in hamburger;
neither apple nor pine in pineapple.
English muffins weren't invented in England or French fries in France.
Sweetmeats are candies while sweetbreads, which aren't sweet, are meat.
We take English for granted. But if we explore its paradoxes, we find
that quicksand can work slowly, boxing rings are square and a guinea pig
is neither from Guinea nor is it a pig. And why is it that writers write
but fingers don't fing, grocers don't groce and hammers don't ham?
If the plural of tooth is teeth, why isn't the plural of booth beeth? One
goose, 2 geese. So one moose, 2 meese? One index, 2 indices?
Doesn't it seem crazy that you can make amends but not one amend? If you
have a bunch of odds and ends and get rid of all but one of them,
What do you call it? If teachers taught, why didn't preachers praught?
If a bell is rung, it rings, does a person hing when he's hung?
If a vegetarian eats vegetables, what does a humanitarian eat?
Sometimes I think all the English speakers should be committed to an
asylum for the verbally insane.
In what language do people recite at a play and play at a recital?
Ship by truck and send cargo by ship?
You drive on a parkway and park in a driveway?
Have noses that run and feet that smell?
How can a slim chance and a fat chance be the same, while a wise man and
a wise guy are opposites?
You have to marvel at the unique lunacy of a language in which your house
can burn up as it burns down, in which you fill in a form by filling it
out and in which an alarm goes off by going on.
English was invented by people, not computers, and it reflects the
creativity of the human race (which, of course, isn't a race at all).
That is why, when the stars are out, they are visible, but when the
lights are out, they are invisible.

See ya (though I don't).

        VIRUS WARNING!!!

If you receive an email entitled "Badtimes," delete it IMMEDIATELY. Do not open it. Apparently this one is pretty nasty. It will not only erase everything on your hard drive, but it will also delete anything on disks within 20 feet of your computer. It demagnetizes the strips on ALL of your credit cards. It reprograms your ATM access code, screws up the tracking on your VCR and uses subspace field harmonics to scratch any CD's you attempt to play. It will program your phone auto-dial to call only 900 numbers. This virus will mix antifreeze into your fish tank. IT WILL CAUSE YOUR TOILET TO FLUSH WHILE YOU ARE SHOWERING.

It will drink ALL your beer. FOR GOD'S SAKE, ARE YOU LISTENING??

It will leave dirty underwear on the coffee table when you are expecting company. It will replace your shampoo with Nair and your Nair with Rogaine, all the while dating your current boy/girlfriend behind your back and billing their hotel rendezvous to your Visa card. It will cause you to run with scissors and throw things in a way that is only fun until someone loses an eye. It will rewrite your backup files, changing all your active verbs to passive tense and incorporating undetectable misspellings which grossly change the interpretations of key sentences.

If the "Badtimes" message is opened in a Windows 95/98/NT or XP environment, it will leave the toilet seat up and leave your hair dryer plugged in dangerously close to a full bathtub. It will not only remove the forbidden tags from your mattresses and pillows, it will also refill your skim milk with whole milk.


And if you don't send this to 5000 people in 20 seconds you'll fart so hard that your right leg will spasm and shoot straight out in front of you, sending sparks that will ignite the person nearest you. Send to everyone
In case you're a blonde, this is a joke.

1. Definition of a teenager? God's punishment for enjoying sex.

2. Transvestite: A guy who likes to eat, drink and be Mary!

3. The difference between the Pope and your boss? The Pope only expects you to kiss his ring.

4. My mind works like lightning. One brilliant flash and it is gone.

5. The only time the world beats a path to your door is if you're in the bathroom.

6. I hate sex in the movies. Tried it once, the seat folded up, the drink spilled and that ice, well, it really chilled the mood.

7. It used to be only death and taxes were inevitable. Now, of course, there's shipping and handling, too.

8. A husband is someone who after taking the trash out, gives the impression he just cleaned the whole house.

9. My next house will have no kitchen -- just vending machines and a large trash can.

10. The only thing wrong with a beautiful drive to work is that you still end up at work.

11. Americans are getting stronger. 50 years ago, you needed a station wagon to hold $10 worth of groceries. 20 years ago, it took two people to carry ten dollars' worth of groceries. Now, a five-year-old can do it.

12. A blonde said, "I was worried that my mechanic might try to rip me off. I was relieved when he told me all I needed was turn-signal fluid."

13. I'm so depressed. My doctor refused to write me a prescription for Viagra. He said it would be like putting a new flagpole on a condemned building.

14. My neighbor was bit by a stray rabid dog. I went to see how he was and found him writing frantically. I told him rabies could be cured and he didn't have to worry about a Will. He said, "Will? What Will? I'm making a list of the people I wanna bite."

15. Bush is in the supermarket picking up some things for the new office when a stock boy accidentally bumps into him. "Pardon me," the stock boy says. "Sure," Clinton replies, "but it'll cost you."

16. Jesse Jackson, Jim Bakker, and Jimmy Swaggert have written an impressive new book. It's called: "Ministers Do More Than Lay People."

We have all been to those meetings where someone wants more than 100%. Well here's how you do that. Here's how you can achieve 103%.

First of all, here's a little math that might prove helpful in the future.

How does one achieve 100% in LIFE?

Begin by noting the following.

A = 1   B = 2   C = 3   D = 4   E = 5    F = 6   G = 7
H = 8   I = 9   J = 10   K = 11   L = 12    M = 13 
N = 14   O = 15   P = 16   Q = 17   R = 18    S = 19
T = 20   U = 21   V = 22   W = 23   X = 24    Y = 25  
Z = 26

H A R D W O R K = 8+1+18+4+23+15+18+11 = Only 98%

K N O W L E D G E = 11+14+15+23+12+5+4+7+5 = Only 96%

But interesting (and as you'd expect),
A T T I T U D E = 1+20+20+9+20+21+4+5 = 100% ... This is how you achieve 100% in LIFE.

B U L L S H I T = 2+21+12+12+19+8+9+20 = 103%

So now you know what all those high-priced consultants, upper management, and motivational speakers really mean when they want to exceed 100%!


I Suppose that's enough for now...   :-)
