Today, fifteen years after the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center, I invite everyone in the personal development and spiritual growth communities, supporters of a free Tibet, and our like-minded friends — We the Peaceful – to join together and create a global manifestation of a different variety: the power of love.
The face of peace: His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama, Tenzin Gyatso
Who in all the world represents the principles of love, compassion, kindness to a higher degree than the average? Answer: the Dalai Lama.
We’ll use this powerful truth of the law of attraction to send the Dalai Lama home to a free Tibet. The book includes all you need to get started with a daily meditation to manifest Restoring Tibet.
On 9/11/2001 a small group of people created a hate-based demonstration with repercussions felt around the world. The face of fear: Osama bin Laden and those who followed. Their rallying cry: Destroy! There are those today in USA who promote fear-based political agendas and the building of walls. Their rallying cry: Return to greatness–Keep our country safe from strangers!
Those born on and after 9/11/2001 entered a world drenched in anxiety, cautions, warnings, amber alerts, and a sense of powerlessness.
I hope you will join me in creating a higher level of peace in the world.

One of the most famous quotations from The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupery is: “One sees clearly only with the heart. Anything essential is invisible to the eyes.”
For more than sixty years, this quote has been repeated by countless readers and fans. Despite the passage of time, it retains its freshness to help us understand more about our true nature.
All too often we look around us and judge life by what we can experience with our senses. Living a condition-based life is the result of that sensory training. In part, of course, we do want to enjoy our senses. This is a physical world and we are not meant to suffer and experience privation, no matter how many times we’ve been taught it is somehow noble to be poor and destitute. That’s Old Worldview thinking that says “Life happens to you—you’ll just have to endure!” When we constantly look at what’s going on outside of us, however, we start judging ourselves and others based on material things. Feelings of inferiority or superiority can result.
In addition, putting our faith in what we can see gives us a distorted view because we are actually viewing the results of old thoughts, not the new thoughts we have right now which are still in the invisible stage of manifesting their matching results.
If you’ve been practicing affirmations and meditating and wonder why something bad just happened, understand it’s not a result of the affirmations you are doing today.
We don’t manifest instantly. Instead there’s a much needed time-lapse between our thoughts and the results they produce. This is a good thing, because that buffer allows us to keep finetuning our desires, and to catch ourselves when we’re on a tailspin.
Think about what is essential to you in your life. At first we might focus on material comforts and necessities like food, clothing and a place to live. But go beyond that and allow yourself to recognize what is most important to you. If all of the material things were stripped away, what would still be essential to you? Love, family, the ability to create joy? It may surprise you how much the other parts of life simply become icing on the cake, while the true substance is what you are seeing clearly with your heart, as in The Little Prince.
I started writing books and blogging on the topic of stress relief and the law of attraction some years back, and I know that both topics are still very applicable to all our lives. It’s far too easy to feel stressed-out and overwhelmed with all the demands on our time.
I hope you enjoy the following excerpt from Chapter 8 “Chill, Baby – Learn to Relax, No Matter How Crazy Everybody Else Is” in my book “Forget Your Troubles: Enjoy Your Life Today.”
Your “Simply Being” Meditation
Meditation is a way to quiet your frantic mind and find peace for a few moments. It’s an excellent way to keep your heart healthy and your stress level manageable.
This is a simple meditation that even a young child can learn.
–Turn off the TV, loud music and computer games.
–Lie down in a restful place with minimal distractions.
–Relax your muscles, close your eyes, visualize yourself as floating on a raft in a gentle stream.
–Take deep, slow breaths.
–Imagine fluffy clouds overhead. A soft summer breeze embraces you.
–Enjoy the beauty of being part of this world. Rest for a few moments, quietly and calmly.
–Silently tell yourself: “I am here.”
If you are new to meditation, a few minutes might seem like a long time. With practice, you will look forward to ten or fifteen minutes of “Simply Being.”
There’s a reason you are called a “human being” and not a “human doing.”
Take time for the human “being” portion of you. It drives all the rest.
Your days will be more fulfilling when you take time to relax. Feed your body and spirit with a dose of contentment time.
