A New Life
I have a new life! And I owe it to quite a few people.
It started over six years ago when I read a book my partner of almost fifty years had left lying around. Its title, "The Power of Intention" roused my curiosity. "Hmm, I thought, just another self-improvement book." But as I read the cover description I had the distinct impression that it was more than that. My curiosity got the better of me and, although I had many other things that needed doing, I plunked myself down in my favourite chair and started reading it. By the time I had reached the end of Chapter Six I had "learned" so much that I felt I needed to know more. Through the Internet I discovered a series of "You Can Do It" conferences, sponsored by Hay House Publishing. One was to be held in Toronto, so I eagerly signed up. That's where I met the author, Dr. Wayne W. Dyer. He was the start of it all!
Through that conference I discovered the book, "Ask And It Is Given" by Esther and Jerry Hicks. Again, by the time I had finished the first section I had re-discovered a lot of what I had already known, (according to Abraham), and wanted, no needed, to know more.
It was about that same time a friend loaned me her copy of Dr. Amit Goswami’s book, "The Self-Aware Universe", sub-titled "How Consciousness Creates The Material World". What an eye-opener it was, leading me further into exploration of particle physics and the world of quantum physics. That led to John Maddox's book, "What Remains To Be Discovered". Now I knew that there was much more to this earthly life than I could ever have imagined. I was on a roll.
One day, shortly thereafter, while wandering through the video store, looking for a light-hearted movie I found "What The [Bleep] Do We Know?". The title tickled my fancy, so I rented it for the evening’s entertainment. It turned out not to be so light-hearted after all! It was profound. And I was quite surprised to see none other than Dr. Amit Goswami in it, along with a great many other quantum physicists, scientists, psychologists, psychiatrists and philosophers!
All this occurred over a period of two years, and by this time my ideas about life in general, about my religion and my beliefs, had been turned on end. I was seeing things with an entirely new perspective. I knew I was on the right path, but I also knew that there was a lot more to learn. I knew I had barely scratched the surface.
Then it all started to happen in quick time. We purchased a copy of the DVD movie "The Secret", produced by Rhonda Byrne, on a recommendation from a friend. It literally blew my mind! I watched it twice! The second time I saw things I hadn't noticed with the first viewing. Since then I watch it about once a month, and I am still seeing something new each time. That prompted me to buy a second copy, which I eagerly lend to friends who have not seen it. Almost every one of them has since purchased their own copy!
It's funny how, sometimes, fate seems to play its hand at just the right time. In a philosophical mood one evening I entered the word "life" into the Google search bar on my computer to see what it would bring up. The search turned up 1,020,000,000 entries in less that half a second! I narrowed my search by adding "abundant", but by accident I forgot to leave a space between the two words! To my surprise, that reduced the list to six, one of which was "The Life Abundant - The Secret Science of Getting Rich". Now that was just too interesting a title to ignore. The Secret Science of Getting Rich??? Really! Well, that I just had to see. So, I clicked on it.
That took me to the web site, The Life Abundant. And that was where I met Bob Proctor, Dr. Michael Beckwith and Jack Canfield for the second time. They were described as "Teachers from 'The Secret'" So I signed up for the seven free lessons offered there. After all, what did I have to lose? They were free, right? And they were eye-opening!
I knew I just couldn't leave it there. I knew that the message of "The Secret", namely that the "Law Of Attraction" is constantly at work throughout the universe, was just the tip of the iceberg. I learned that although "The Secret" had made me aware of that "law", it didn't begin to touch on how to use it! The seven free lessons was a start. That led to a Briefcase seminar package produced by Bob Proctor and his LifeSuccess company, based on Wallace D, Wattles' book, "The Science of Getting Rich", published over one hundred years ago.
Through the web site, The Life Abundant, I got that package. I have been studying it daily ever since. And, I am beginning to incorporate its lessons within my daily life. The difference is absolutely amazing!
Yes, I have a new life, and I owe it all to these people: Dr. Wayne W. Dyer, Esther and Jerry Hicks, Dr. Amit Goswami, John Maddox, Rhonda Byrne, and Bob Proctor. I will never be able to thank them enough.
