"John, your site has the calm and quiet of still forest glades, of ancient holy places. This essence, this gentle peace, is the spirit you have somehow embodied here.

A John Harricharan Article

Today turned out to be one of those textbook beautiful
days. The sun is shining, the breeze is blowing softly
and the temperature is just right -- the perfect day.
Even with all the challenges I have to face, I still
look up at the sky and smile as the clouds chase one
another across a "picture-perfect", blue background.

But I know that all the days to come will not be as
beautiful and comfortable as this day is. Yesterday was
dark and dreary, pierced with giant streaks of
lightning, which generated thunder that rattled the

Yes, I know that all the days that follow today will
not be as bright as this one, nor as dark as yesterday.
Some days will be better than others. Some will be
worse. And I do not know which ones will or won't.

But this one thing I know: There will be change. There
will be ups and there will be downs. That's how life is
-- there are good times and not so good times. The good
times will not last forever. Every now and then, there
will be rough times. But remember, even the worst times
won't last either.

The trick is to enjoy the good times and make the most
of them; to tolerate the rough times and know that they
won't last forever. Generally, it appears that the good
times seem to go so fast and the bad times seem to last
forever, but this is not really so. It is our
experience of time that makes it seem that way.

Five minutes in my dentist's chair may feel like an
eternity, whereas sixty minutes spent chatting with a
friend may seem like just a few seconds. What we are
dealing with here is a matter of focus. Let me explain.

Whenever we encounter difficult problems, the tendency
is to focus so intensely in trying to arrive at a
solution that we become all tense and tied up in knots.
When that occurs, we tend to become frustrated, fearful
and sometimes angry. The problem here is that we're
trying to force a solution instead of allowing a

Anger could be expected, but prolonged anger is harmful
to body, mind and spirit. It was the great author and
lecturer, Dr. Elisabeth Kubler-Ross who said, "Natural
anger lasts for only about seventeen seconds". Anything
beyond that is a reaction to circumstances or
remembered situations.

Fear is one of our deadliest enemies. The fear I refer
to is the type that causes us to stay awake at night
conjuring up all the terrible things that could happen
because of the unsolved problems we're facing. This
kind of fear is dangerous, self-defeating and downright
useless. It shakes our very foundations and needlessly
drains us of energy.

And to be frustrated is natural. But let us not dwell
on the frustration. It's like having a flat tire while
driving in a thunderstorm and getting out of the car,
becoming soaking wet and kicking the flat tire for
being flat. It does no good.

So you ask me, "How then do I deal with my problems?"
The first most important thing is to disconnect from
the problem. By this, I don't mean that you pretend
that the problem doesn't exist. It does exist, so get
all the facts you can and then let it be. Break focus
with it. This way, your subconscious mind will work
towards a solution.

When we force our minds to be totally focussed on the
problem, when we do not let it go, even for a short
while, we deny the subconscious mechanism the power it
has to help resolve the crisis. We must let it go. We
must take a break from thinking about the problem.

Do whatever you can to break focus. Since all things
have energy, even our problems are energy "things". If
we focus on the problem too long, we energize it and
make it stronger. By letting go and switching our
focus, we shift our energy away from the problem and
are now "energizing" the solution.

Does it matter how big the problem is? Not really. The
Higher Self knows the answer to every problem we could
ever encounter. The size of the problem is not
important. What is important is how we look at the
problem. Withdraw your attention from it for a short
while a number of times a day.

During those times, don't look at the facts. You've
already done that. Just look away from the facts to
something pleasant, maybe listen to some good music,
watch a great movie, go for a walk, talk to a good
friend, read a good book. Just break focus with the
problem for a short while.

If you do this, you will notice that the problem will
appear to be less and less formidable. And somehow, in
some way, you will get the guidance to do what's
necessary to overcome the challenge. It may be that
your car is being repossessed, the house is being
foreclosed, a close friend or relative or even you
yourself may be battling poor health. Doesn't matter
what the problem is, break focus, allow calm, quiet and
hope to flow through your mind.

As you practice doing this, almost magically, things
will start to change; you will feel better, more
hopeful, more empowered. And you will think more
clearly. You will hear the "still small" voice within
giving you the guidance you need.

Don't take my word for it. Just try it and see for
yourself. You have nothing to lose except your
problems. And you have everything to gain.

Next time I'll reveal how to use various sources of
inspiration to keep on going when it seems that the
road has been too long and dark. Remember, Morning has
been all night coming, but see how surely it comes.

---------------------------------------- ---------------

Here are five tips to make any day a better day:

1) First thing on getting up in the morning, read an
inspirational or motivational poem or story.

2) As you get ready for your day, sing or hum a
favorite tune. If there are others around and you don't
want them to hear you sing, then hum the tune in your

3) During the day, take a few one or two-minute breaks
where you imagine yourself at your favorite place (the
ocean, the mountains, on the beach, a field of daisies,
a garden, fishing, etc). Enjoy this place, breathe in
the smells, listen to the sounds of the environment.
After a minute or two, resume your previous activities.

4) No matter what the problems you're facing, keep in
mind that God is NEVER late.

5) Don't look at or listen to the news just before
going to bed. Instead, spend a few minutes reading
something uplifting.

These five tips are simplicity itself, but if you make
them a habit, you'll find that your days become more
productive and more beautiful.

"If you're going through hell, keep going."
--Winston Churchill

"If I were asked to give what I consider the single
most useful bit of advice for all humanity it would be
this: Expect trouble as an inevitable part of life and
when it comes, hold your head high, look it squarely in
the eye and say, 'I will be bigger than you. You cannot
defeat me.' "
--Ann Landers

POEM: "Rest a While"

When dark despair and drudgery just
make your knees to bend
And when you want to travel up
but always you descend
When time and tide, it seems to you
just fill you more with woe,
Just rest a while and breathe a smile
before you start to go.

--John Harricharan

"Challenges come so we can grow and be prepared for
things we are not equipped to handle now. When we face
our challenges with faith, prepared to learn, willing
to make changes, and if necessary, to let go, we are
demanding our power be turned on."
--Iyanla Vanzant

"We can throw stones, complain about them, stumble on
them, climb over them, or build with them."

GUEST ARTICLE: "The Meaning of Life"
By Robert Kleine

I'm sitting here at my kitchen table. Its mid-summer,
so all the windows in the house are open. I can hear
the sounds coming through my front and back windows,

My eight year old daughter and her girl friend are
climbing the tree in the front yard as my ten year old
son and his buddy play a game of catch in the back.

Soft music is playing on the stereo in the living room.
The talk and the laughter of the kids mixing with the
tracks of music emanating from the speakers make a very
soulful and spiritual combination. My mind is sort of
floating in neutral.

Then, I hear my daughter say something to her friend.
Something she obviously picked up from me. Almost at
the same instant, the same thing happens in my right
ear; the ear pointing toward the back yard and my son,
who's out there playing ball. My son is saying
something to his friend; again, something he just had
to have picked up from me.

I feel as if I'm caught in a bubble in time. You know,
one of those times when everything seems to stop.
Everything is standing still.

I get this overwhelming feeling that I'm supposed to
learn something from this warp in the fabric of
space-time. The feeling strikes me that what's
happening in this moment is one of those "meanings of
life" that we always seem to be searching for. I'm
being told by my two young kids what the meaning of
life is?

I've got it! The children and what they learn from me;
what they pick up from watching me, are the meaning of
my life. My God! Is it really that simple?

The words uttered by my kids on that summer afternoon
aren't important. What is of the utmost importance is
that their words could have been uttered by me. Had, in
fact been words that I'd spoken to them on many
occasions. What power! What sheer terror.

Our children, often unbeknownst to us, are absorbing
pieces of who they will be from me and from you.

Am I passing on the right information? Am I teaching
them to be the kind of people I'll be proud of? More
importantly, will they have pride in who they become?
Am I handing over the keys to a meaningful, happy
existence to these two beings that I love the most?

I'm sitting here at my kitchen table. Its mid-summer,
so all the windows in the house are open. I can hear
the sounds coming through my front and back windows,
simultaneously. What I hear is the sound of the
children of the world. What I'm hearing are the sounds
of the future.

The impressions we leave for the children of this
planet; whether they're my kids or your own, are the
reflection that will be looking back at us all from the
mirror of our future.

Will we like what we see?
