" I feel at one with Universal energy as it flows through my life, unfolding in miraculous and synchronistic ways. I become energized... working with Universal energy rather than against it... my life takes on a Zen like quality, in that I am present to the point in that everything has almost a surreal guided feeling. It's not always easy, but it's certainly made life more fun". I'm definitely still a work in progress, but this is pretty much all I have to do, just be the love I am, be who I am. My external world will fall into place as a result of that." Anita Moorjani, Dying to Be Me.
Some may imagine heaven as a place that is in perfect order and harmony, free of pain and suffering and a place where injuries and illnesses heal. It would be filled with friends and loved ones and almost anything manifests by focusing attention on it. That is where I went this day.
After getting out of bed I drove my Jeep towards the river. I usually start out near Walkerville but mindlessly I ended up driving towards the University on the opposite end of the river trail. As I was driving down Erie Street, I saw an older gentleman in a wheel chair hunched over the curb. As I approached I saw what he was doing. He was using a reacher to pick up something from the road. I could tell by the aluminum frame and hndle that it was one of the reachers I manufactured at my factory in Mexico years ago. Glad it came in handy for him.
Then I headed through a downtown neighborhood and a woman jogger stopped on the corner to let me drive by. There was some construction in the area and I just followed the signs. The one way signs seemed to be talking to me telling me to go this one way. I ended up taking the long way towards the University and when I arrived there was no place to park. So I drove towards my normal starting place in Walkerville. I saw the woman jogger again on Riverside now about 4 km away from where I first saw her. Then when I finally parked in Walkerville and stepped out to start my jog, I saw the woman jogger again about 100 yards away. At no time did I meet or wave to this woman jogger, but there were three near misses. I feel this happens a lot. Even before meeting someone for the first time, there are often many near misses.
I then started my barefoot jog in Walkerville and headed towards the University. About half way there, I noticed a couple hundred Corvettes making there way into the park for some type of show. There were a couple of guys doing some renovations to my house at the moment, and one of them is a huge corvette fan. As I was jogging I thought I wonder if Bryan is here, and within 30 seconds I hear someone yell my name. It was Bryan. He organized the event, showed me his car and introduced me to his wife. It was nice to see Bryan in his glory with all the Corvette Indy Pace Cars and his corvette friends from all over North America.
I then kept jogging and noticed so many people loving the early morning sunshine and opportunity to ride, skate, walk and jog the trails. I jogged behind an older Chinese couple sitting on the park bench overlooking the river, clapping their hands loudly in harmony, without any music. As I jogged by I clapped along with them.
I ended up back in Walkerville jogging over 10k, barefoot and it felt fairly effortless, almost like floating on the grass, yet it wasn't a dream. I was in a state of jubilation, thrilled to be alive and somehow was able to jog without pain. This may not seem like much, but I am grateful for anything I get. Due to years of playing soccer and a bunch of other factors X-rays recently showed that I have a severe degenerative hip condition that would require surgery. Yet I feel fine. I may not be able to play competitive soccer but am able to jog and do all sorts of stuff.
The whole day and the jog felt somewhat surreal, but perfect in every way. What are the odds of driving in random fashion and seeing the same woman jogging in three different areas? The woman jogger I saw was, interestingly, was not a stranger. Coincidentally it was Rino's wife, Anastasia. I've known Rino since childhood as my best buddy Rob, who's passing from cancer, I blogged about recently, grew up 3 doors down from Rino.
Rino was also the Chef featured in the Voyage to Betterment film that made a ground breaking improvement. Blood tests revealed that Rino grew 8 years biologically younger in only 30 days and his estimated risk of developing diabetes, heart disease and cancer were reduced by over 50%. He was very willing throughout the process as his main motivation was to do it for his family. His motivation for improving was to do it out of the love for life and for his family not because of the fear of getting a disease.
That was the first lesson in the Voyage to Betterment film. To oversimplify we either make decisions out of love or out of fear. To stay with the flow and work with the universal energy of all life, we simply have to keep making decisions out of love. That powerful intention to be the best he could be for his family may have had a positive influence on Anastasia as well. She must have jogged at least 10km that day and had great form. She also looked fitter and younger than when we did the tests on Rino 8 years ago.
Our inner underlying intention has the greatest influence on the effectiveness of any external traditional or holistic medication, diet, or lifestyle program. I updated the Voyage to Betterment website a few months back and on the first two slides on the landing page it states:
"It's never about what is going on out there". "It's always about what is going on in here".
However it is difficult to grasp as we all believe we are subject to what we see "out there".
So a few days ago it came to mind to elaborate on this reality by articulating that life happens from the "Inside Out" and that all healing too happens from the Inside Out. Most of traditional and holistic medicine is focused on an Outside In approach. We treat conditions experienced inside by cutting stuff out, killing bacteria and viruses we "caught" out there and by taking pills, drugs, vaccines, herbs, this food, that food, supplements and programs. With this approach we see ourselves as helpless victims of outside influences and unconsciously live in fear. With the Outside In view of life, we miss the critical point that healing happens from the Inside Out. It is never about what is going on out there. It is always about what is going on in here.
To articulate the essence of the Voyage to Betterment work as an Inside Out approach felt like guidance. But to be sure I always ask for more signs. So after the jog I was reading more of Anita Moorjani amazing "Dying To Be" book. I got a chill when I read this on page 113:
"In addition because of my NDE, I went from an outside-in view of reality to an inside-out view. That is I used to think that the external world was real and that I had to work within its confines. This is pretty much how most people think. With this view I gave my power to the world outside, and external events had the ability to control me, my behavior, moods, thinking"
Yet I even though I often receive multiple signs as guidance I always ask that such guidance be made so obvious to me that I can't deny it. So, later in the day, it came to mind to go buy some bananas and as I walked through the grocery store, I stopped on the spot when I saw an employee wearing a T-shirt that said in large letters on the back "Bring the Inside Out". In fact there were dozens of these huge signs hanging all over the store.
Anita experienced the reality of life unfolding in perfect synchronicity after her NDE, yet she also advises that we do not need to die to experience heaven. This is true.
After many of my healthy friends developed and succumbed to cancer, the whole context of cancer has been on my radar. I continue to ask for the truth to be revealed in this respect, and it has been on multiple occasions. Meeting Anita, the world's foremost expert in this regard, was no coincidence. Her turnaround from terminal cancer in a matter of days is unprecedented and can't be explained by science or medicine. In the process she discovered the true source of her cancer and she returned to this life to articulate the critical points to anyone that wants to know.
She has been featured on Oprah, and PBS with Wayne Dyer. Millions will benefit from her experience. I wish that Rob's family and friends, or anyone affected by cancer in any way get an opportunity to meet her or at minimum read her amazing book "Dying To Be Me".
