"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. You have taken what appears at first just another house of page-views and crafted it into a chapel of electrons, a refuge where business and other travelers can pause and recharge spiritually.

LETTER FROM JOHN HARRICHARAN
-------------------------------------------------------

Dear Reader:

Your personal copy of Insight2000 newsletter is here.
This newsletter is designed to help shed some light on
solving your problems, on moving from one point to
another even when it appears that motion itself is
meaningless.

Yes, I know I haven't been sending out this newsletter
as regularly as I should. Actually, I was seriously
considering doing away with it altogether, but decided
to continue since many of you wrote and mentioned how
you missed it. Thank you so very much for all your
emails.

In this issue, I've reprinted one of my articles, "A
Little-Known Secret". I think it's time we all read it
-- some of us for the first time and others for the
second or third. This article serves to remind me of
what's important.

Our guest article, "Abundance is Our Birthright" is by
Loretta Rogers. I normally do not include long articles
in my newsletter, but this is an exception and I just
had to share it with you. Thanks, Loretta, for giving
me permission to reprint it.

Thank you, dear reader. Now on to the newsletter.

John H.

ARTICLE: "A LITTLE-USED SECRET"
-------------------------------------------------------
A John Harricharan Article

Sometimes, the simplest things are the most profound.
Many times, the most obvious things are often ignored.
A good percentage of the time the most common sense
principles are the ones most disregarded. Perhaps, it's
because we are so intent on making a living that we
forget about making a life.

One of the most forgotten principles for personal
success is a word ignored by almost everyone--Goodwill.
It is a principle so underused, yet so powerful, that
it could take us to the heights of success. It remains
underused because people overlook the disarming power
disguised in subtle terms such as compassion, kindness,
empathy, unselfishness and caring.

In marketing classes in MBA school, we learned many
useful things about advertising strategy, marketing to
consumers, studying statistics of a sales campaign and
getting the order. To this day, I use the tools of the
trade to help me in my business. But one thing that
hardly anyone touched upon was the concept of
"Goodwill."

Goodwill is not just a number on the accountant's
balance sheet, but is an invisible, little-used tool
that all of us have at our disposal. Let me explain.
Most of us could help solve someone else's problems,
either with a telephone call, an introduction or
referral, a signature or other obvious means. But we
refuse to do it. Why? I'll tell you why. Because we
feel there's nothing in it for us! Or we are afraid to
get involved.

Let me tell you a true story. It was many years ago. A
young woman walked into my assistant's office. She was
looking for a job, but we had none to offer. Just the
week before, all job vacancies had been filled.

At the request of my assistant, I spoke with the young
woman. She only wanted to work for the summer and then
would complete her last semester of graduate school and
return home to her country. She had been looking for a
summer job for almost four weeks. No one wanted to hire
her and train her to work for such a short period of
time.

I remembered my days as a graduate student and felt her
anxiety. Although there was no sound business reason to
do so, I told my assistant to create a job for her.
Afterall, she needed help and it felt good to help
someone without figuring what was in it for me.

I hardly saw her until the last day when she came into
my office to say goodbye. She thanked me again for the
job and handed me a business card.

"This is my father's card," she said, "If you ever
visit my country, call my dad, he'd be very happy to
meet you. I've told him all about how kind you and your
employees were to me. In my country, my dad is a member
of Parlianment and an important man."

And that's how I ended up having lunch with the mayor
of Nairobi, dinner with the Vice President of Kenya and
making business alliances that brought my company
profits hundreds of times greater than the salary we
had paid for summer help.

On top of that, I enjoyed going on photo safari to the
Serengeti Plains of East Africa, walking along the
beaches of Mombassa and sipping Pimms#3 at the Mount
Kenya Safari Club, while enjoying the fantastic view of
the snow-covered summit of Mount Kenya. Even the Kikuyu
dancers reminded me of exciting adventures in foreign
climes.

This is not an isolated case. It's just one of the more
obvious ones. You never can tell who will lead you to
that next contact, that profitable contract or the
added financing you were looking for. It is important
that we treat everyone with dignity and respect.
REMEMBER: Business does not do business with other
businesses. People do business with people.

The Internet is not about computers, technology or even
marketing. That would be like saying cars are about the
internal combustion engine and the laws of
thermodynamics. The Internet is about people and
communications. If we communicate with honesty and
feelings, we'd find that most others respond in kind.

So whenever the opportunity arises, do something for
someone else who is powerless to do it alone. Don't
worry about what you are going to get out of it. The
Universe has a way of repaying in ways far too strange
to understand. Earn "goodwill" and you'll prosper
beyond belief.

POEM: "Ode to Solitude"
-------------------------------------------------------

Happy the man, whose wish and care
A few paternal acres bound,
Content to breathe his native air
In his own ground.

Whose herds with milk, whose fields with bread,
Whose flocks supply him with attire;
Whose trees in summer yield him shade,
In winter fire.

Blest, who can unconcernedly find
Hours, days, and years slide soft away
In health of body, peace of mind,
Quiet by day,

Sound sleep by night; study and ease
Together mixed; sweet recreation,
And innocence, which most does please
With meditation.

Thus let me live, unseen, unknown;
Thus unlamented let me die;
Steal from the world, and not a stone
Tell where I lie.

--Alexander Pope

GUEST ARTICLE: "Abundance is Our Birthright"
-------------------------------------------------------
by Loretta Rogers

I have heard it said many times, and I think most
people believe, that if its free or easy, it has no
value. I remember my parents telling me as a small
child "if its worth having, its worth struggling and
working for" and, "if it comes easy its probably not
worth much."Also, that you had to be willing to
"sacrifice and do without so you could have money in
the bank for a rainy day." Its what we were taught as
children. It seems we are taught to maintain a high
level of pain and struggle as a normal part of our
lives. Our subconscious minds were programmed to
believe all these things Are we supporting a belief
system that encourages struggle?.

Without a doubt, I believe that there is definitely
value in working for what we want. But why is it so
hard for us to realize that the universe provides
abundance freely when we get out of the way and accept
it. All things do not require struggle - we only have
to put the request for what we want in our lives out
there, believe it will be, and release it. We must then
pay attention and the universe will present opportunity
for right action that will lead to creating or
manifesting what we want.

Just how does this universal law of manifestation work?
I am certainly not perfected in this but I would like
to share what I know of how this law works.

We are comprised of, among other things,
electromagnetic energy. This electromagnetic energy has
a vibrational frequency. In fact, the differences we
perceive between us and everything outside of us is
simply our perception of the different vibratory
frequency. We may say that every thing in the seen and
unseen realities vibrates at a certain rate, and
because this frequency is electro-magnetic, it attracts
like frequency to it.

If we look at situations in our lives that we desire to
transform, imagine that each situation has a frequency.
Every time we identify with this situation, we feel
negative judgement about perceived lack. In other
words: I would like to be healthy and vital, but, I am
sick and frail; I would like more money, but I do not
have enough money. You see how often we are focused on
the lack? That perception of lack carries its own
frequency, which the universe supports absolutely.

All things in the universe were thoughts before they
were things. It is not only our thoughts which have
this frequency. More powerful, is the emotion which is
attached to the thought. Have you noticed how easy it
is to manifest that which really doesn't have a lot of
significance in our lives? We do it without thinking
about it. We simply focus on what is desired and there
it is. Much of our perceived lack come from not
identifying the gift which is being presented to us
now.

To create effortlessly it is helpful to identify any
old beliefs or ideas which keep us stuck in the old
patterns. The universe has trouble with mixed messages
and will support the message which has the most power
attached to it. If you desire to manifest more money
and wonder why, after all your affirmations and
visualizations, that money is not flowing to you, then
look at what you believe about money. More importantly,
look at your focus on the lack of it. While we are
stuck in poverty consciousness we are not in the
frequency of the ease and flow of money.

One of the easiest ways to change the flow of your
life, and to be in the flow and frequency of having, is
to see the abundant gifts that you have now and give
thanks.

Many of us are still struggling to survive and meet our
everyday obligations while those who operate from a
standpoint of greed and power grow richer. There are
universal laws in force, neutral laws, that all of us
must abide by no matter what our character. First, we
must have the right mind set. If we studied or took a
closer look at those who have amassed great wealth and
power we would see they have a vision, a belief in
themselves and their ability to accomplish anything
they desire. They begin by gaining the skills and
knowledge necessary to make them experts in their field
of endeavor. They spend as much energy and time as it
takes to make their dreams a reality; they do not
listen to any negative input from others and they do
not doubt, even for a moment, their ability to
accomplish what they desire and reach their goals. They
draw to them those who have like interests and similar
aspirations. They have their vision firmly planted in
their mind and, day-by-day, moment-by-moment, they do
whatever is necessary to bring that vision into
reality.

So what is the secret? Why do they succeed when most
have such difficulty creating enough abundance to live
simply and gracefully? How does the law of
manifestation work? How does the electromagnetic force
field that surrounds us attract abundance?

Through our electro-magnetic force field we send out a
frequency or vibrations, and those vibrations go forth
and connect with like energy waves drawing to us more
of the same. And so why, if we have been saying
affirmations and mantras day and night asking for
wealth, if we talk continuously about what we want to
accomplish when we have the funds, and yearn with all
our heart and soul for abundance and it still is not
forthcoming? Because we still have those old tapes
lurking around in your subconscious mind that say we
must struggle and deny ourselves. If we just
concentrate on our spiritual growth, God will
provide...and on and on.

One moment we are excited and feel we can conquer the
world and manifest anything we desire and the next, we
begin to doubt ourselves again. We say our affirmations
for abundance and then allow our busy ego-mind to worry
and fret day and night about paying our bills, or
getting a new car or a higher paying job. We begrudge
paying taxes, or insurance or the dentist, etc.,
instead of giving thanks and blessing the money that
flows through our hands as we meet our obligations or
exchange our earnings for the services of others.

Very few of us have the mind set to handle great
wealth, even if it did miraculously come to us. What
would you do if suddenly you were given several million
dollars? Would you hoard it? Would you be anxious about
losing it or someone cheating you out of it? Or would
you spend it joyfully, creating your dreams and
assisting others to create theirs, knowing that your
abundance will keep flowing and there will always be
enough to meet your needs and desires?

I'm not talking about abundance making you happy or
giving you a sense of fulfillment or about deserving
it. I am talking about the impartial flow of universal
substance, and I am sure you have all noticed that many
of those who are the wealthiest are some of the most
miserable, bored and unhappy individuals. But we must
give them credit, they do know how to tap into the
universal source with their thoughts, desires and
determination. They never waver from their goals. They
never let anything or anyone stop them or deter them
from completing their mission. They envision, they
desire, they believe, they act...therefore they
manifest.

To manifest what we want, we must be very clear about
what it is we want to manifest...feel the intensity
within our soul-selves, not our ego-selves. We must
also be sure that our desires are in harmony with our
higher-selves; we must surrender to the highest good
for ourself and others, realizing that we cannot always
see the larger picture, and also we do not want to
limit how our dreams will be manifested. We must listen
to that inner voice of intuition--listen for guidance
and expect miracles and then take action as the path is
revealed.

We must begin to focus more on the abundance we already
have in our life...give thanks for it, be joyful about
what we have, and the good things in our life. We need
to shift your consciousness away from what is wrong
with ourselves, those around us and the world and begin
to see what is right, beautiful and wondrous. We must
act as if we are entitled to all the beauty and
abundance of the universe and that it is pouring forth
in unlimited measure until it begins to happen. That is
not to say we are to go out and spend funds that we do
not have, but we can begin to see and enjoy the gifts
that are available to us.

Give thanks for the little miracles that take place,
making way for greater and greater gifts to come your
way. As we focus more on the positive aspects of your
life, we are reinforcing these energies and drawing
more of the same to us. We are creating a force field
of love, abundance and harmony which no one can disrupt
or destroy--only we can do that. Our thoughts are more
powerful than we know, but we still allow our minds to
play, over and over, the thoughts of doubt, negativity,
fear, guilt etc., which make our affirmations
ineffectual or cancel them out. One moment we believe
we can accomplish anything we desire and the next we
are in self-doubt and pity. No matter how conscious we
become spiritually, if we do not tap into that stream
of consciousness with our mental body and mind that
allows us to draw to us the energies of manifestation,
we will never become a co-creator of abundance.

It is difficult to overcome thoughts, habits and traits
that we have accumulated over the years, but it is a
time of new beginnings, a time to release our old
limited viewpoints, doubts and weaknesses. We are
ascending into a new state of awareness, a new
consciousness; we are evolving and returning to our
perfected state of joy, balance and harmony, where we
will once again glow with the beauty of Spirit.

Co-creation is the art of deliberate manifestation. It
is designing every moment of our lives and allowing us
to create our own realities with the help of Spirit. It
is being brave enough to walk purposefully into our own
futures the way we want them. It is "being" in its
finest form. Most of us carry seeds of self-doubt and
unworthiness and therefore, make this difficult. Spirit
(God) wants us to have everything our hearts desire --
that we "be" our finest expression of God.

We must dare to dream, dare to reach for the stars,
dare to claim all that Spirit has promised us...it is
ours for the taking. Remember that we must experience
what we create, so together lets get started -- lets
create an Earth paradise where love, abundance, beauty
and harmony abound!

A VERY SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT
-------------------------------------------------------

Every once in a long while, something comes along that
really has the potential and promise of dramatically
changing our lives. I want to share with you one such
situation.

Many years ago, Anita Bergen compiled a magnificent
book called, "Life and Other Options". She spent the
ensuing years revising and re-revising until she came
up with a finished product that could change the worst
situations into the best.

She distributed a limited number of copies to people
such as, Butch James, Lillian Cosby, Elisabeth
Kubler-Ross, Foster Hibbard and others, including
myself. They all raved about it. And so do I. I have
kept a copy for years and return to it time and again
for guidance.

I'll tell you why I consider this book to be a "magical
book". Let's say you're facing a major (or even minor)
challenge and you seem to be at the end of your rope.
Pick up this book, open it to any page and the chances
are excellent that you'd find, on that page, guidance
for the problem that troubles you.

Now Anita Bergen has made this book into an electronic
(PDF) version and has created a website to make it
possible for you, too, to have a copy. And don't think
that the cost is out of this world -- it's only $12.95
for an immediate download.

I was so impressed with what this magic book could do
that when Anita asked me if I would write the
introduction for this new release, I readily agreed. I
highly recommend that you get a copy for yourself and
one for a loved one.

I use "Life and Other Options" frequently. My old copy
was so worn out that just the other day, I printed a
whole new copy from the pdf file. It now sits where the
old one used to be -- on my desk, so I could refer to
it as often as possible.

There is no financial gain in this for me. I only want
to share with you a gem of wisdom that I've found. You,
too, will find it of extraordinary value. For all the
details and purchasing instructions, go to the website
at:

http://www.inspirationonline.com

If you find that this book is all that I've said, Anita
would be delighted to hear your experience and, even
moreso, to receive a testimonial.
