I am merely a flute,
a hollow reed with holes~

it is your breath
making the music,
your hand holding the notes.

it is your mouth
soulful on my mouth
making the vibration,
your fingers
confident in my holy place
making the melody.

you are the master holding me,
I am the instrument of love
bursting with song.

* * *

do not come to me in the night
asking to hear the music,

do not come with charming ways
dancing in the night~

offerings of chocolate and flowers
will not open your ears,

begging and pleading
will not liberate your soul!
it is from emptiness
that the drum sounds,
that the flute wails~

it is from silence
that the symphony of God
is heard.

go into the night alone,
go into the starlight
and the scent of jasmine,
hear the glory
of the universe
with unsophisticated ears~

then come dancing
to my room.

The solstices and equinoxes are powerful times for spiritual work and are best attended consciously. The Autumnal Equinox is September 22 and pertains to finding balance in life and enjoying the fruits of labor. The meditation ritual on blesstheworld.com is a good way to celebrate the event. I am not planning a workshop.

The lecture on the Meridian Polarity Technique for Release of Hereditary Karma at the Annual Conference of the United States Psychotronics Association was a great success. You can order the video or dvd from psychotronics.org – but be advised: while the content is quite valuable, the camera work and lighting are extremely unflattering.

My book, eating God, continues to change people's lives. I feel blessed to have been able to bring it to the world. The new expanded edition with page numbers is now available.

Three new peace posters have been added to the website. Download and post them on your car window and place of business. Ask your favorite restaurant to post one in its window. I enlarged "Great Minds" to six feet tall and it has been mounted on the front of my home for over a month. It cost about $10 to do. Forward the link to the peace page to everyone you know. Working for peace in the world will remove the consciousness of conflict from your life.

I am looking for a sponsor to turn the peace posters into peace shirts. If anyone is interested, please email me. There are many more designs than posted to the website.

Spiritual Remedies

This has been quite a summer! My recommendation for a smooth transition into the autumn is the regular use of blessthebody.com First Aid and Chakra Tonic. If this has been an exceptionally emotional time, add blessthebody.com E-motion Potion to your routine. This is especially important as we approach the anniversary of the September 11th tragedy.

First Aid

Shock and trauma overwhelm a portion of the psyche, stunting the growth process on all levels. An insect bite or paper cut; a car accident or death in the family – from surgery to a stubbed toe, this is your "first-aid-kit-in-a-bottle". More effective than Rescue Remedy or arnica, use for all minor or major emergencies. It is indispensable if you have children or when travelling; keep an extra bottle in your car and toiletries bag.

First Aid relieves shock and trauma from physical, emotional, mental, psychic, and spiritual stress, both current and historical. Use to relieve childhood and distant trauma as well as everyday circumstances. First Aid calls the spirit back so healing can begin.

Chakra Tonic

The chakras are portals of spiritual energy which connect to specific points on the physical body. They pertain to psycho-emotional issues which manifest in the physical body and the physical life.

blessthebody.com Chakra Tonic repairs, balances, and strengthens the chakra and nadi (connections between the chakras) systems and their subsidiary systems (the endocrine system, the nervous system, the acupuncture points and meridians systems). It supports the balance of the hormones, brain chemicals, digestive enzymes. It supports the balance of psycho-emotional life-issues. blessthebody.com Chakra Tonic is like "kundalini-yoga-in-a-bottle."

As a tonic, it is best used regularly over a period of time. This is an excellent basic remedy. Chakra Tonic combines well with the other blessthebody.com spiritual remedies – choose to combine remedies to focus the energy to a desired action (eg: Chakra Tonic with Bright Brain for hormone balancing; Chakra Tonic with E-motion Potion for psychological processing; Chakra Tonic with Bright Immunity for strength and vitality).

This is an important remedy during pregnancy (especially for the healthy development of the fetus), menopause, home re-modeling (combine with First Aid), mid-life crisis, or any life-transition. blessthebody.com Chakra Tonic helps you maintain healthy balance.

E-motion Potion

Incomplete expression of any emotion results in physical-life and spiritual-life inertia. The three basic negative emotions (fear/anxiety, anger/resentment, grief/disappointment) initiate this inertia.

blessthebody.com E- motion Potion stimulates the emotional body to release suppressed experiences liberating the psyche by completion of their expression. Depending upon your karma, not all experiences must be worked out overtly.

This is an important remedy for anyone undergoing psychological counseling, 12-step therapy, or any regression work. It is also important for people evolving from child abuse, both physical and emotional. But do not think this is a remedy for extreme cases – it can act with subtlety when subtlety is required.

It is common that people experience an "un- winding" – an emotional process which begins with depression, then moves into hostility, then nervousness – as a way of rooting out the origin of the problem. Do not be alarmed; it is a natural process to your clearer self. Combine with blessthebody.com First Aid if the emotional process becomes too overwhelming.

Feng Shui

The last few months, the stars have given very challenging feng shui. As we approach the Autumnal Equinox and Halloween, it is a good idea to work on the feng shui OUTSIDE your home.

As the weather cools, it is a good time to trim back plants. Do not trim them too hard or disturb the natural shape and character of the plant or tree. Always leave enough leaves for the plant to breathe. Harder trimming can be done in the winter.

Trim out dead branches that the hot summer claimed and remove dead leaves and debris from around the plants. This will allow the chi to circulate better (like clearing clutter from inside your home).

Clean and arrange any ornaments and furniture – its amazing how these things seem to play in the dirt when you aren't looking! And store any summer items that will not be used as the weather gets cooler and vacations end.

Re-dedicate and bless any shrines, statues, or sacred places in your garden. Leave an offering of food and drink to the beings of the spirit world as appreciation for their help in your space. Attention to the spiritual will enhance the physical.

This is not a preparation for winter; this is a re-stimulation of the environment to allow the harvest energy to circulate freely. There is still plenty of time to enjoy your garden.


Sunday Evening Meditation Class at the Blessings Center Los Angeles ( theblessingscenter.com) has just been named by Los Angeles Magazine in its issue called "Best of L.A." the chattiest meditation class in town. It is very insulting and was written by someone who never attended a class nor contacted me nor the center. Always beware of journalists and journalism. Truth and fact are like a plate of hors d' oeuvres from which they pick and choose what they like.

On the other hand, to be one of three meditation classes mentioned in a city the size of Los Angeles is in itself a feat. To be the best of the worst is in some small way an honor!

Class is very informal and accessible to beginners while remaining a challenge to advanced meditators. The meditations themselves are custom designed for the class and the season and address current issues for the release of karma and active spiritual development. If you are unable to attend my "Best of L.A." class, find yourself a place of less renown... but get yourself into a community for meditation if you have any hope of surviving in the world, especially a world documented by journalists.

May grace and peace and joy be the conditions of your life.
