"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. Today's fast-forward world offers so few havens for re-centering ourselves or for re-grounding our spiritual energies. Thanks so much for making this site, John. Its quiet impact will soothe every soul who pauses here."
Charles Burke - Author of "Inside the Minds of Winners" www.sizzlingedge.com

Dear Reader:

It has been entirely too long since I sent out a
newsletter. As I was writing this new issue, I thought
to myself that people send out so many newsletters and
their readers get tired of seeing them. Here I was,
hardly sending out any, and yet, I keep getting email
from all around the world telling me how much my
newsletter is missed.

It is an honor and privilege to have you as a
subscriber to Insight2000 newsletter. I will try to
send out new issues in a timely
manner, but I remember saying that before :-) This
time, I think I'll really do it.

Many things have happened here over the past months.
Those of you who've read "When You Can Walk on Water,
Take the Boat" know about my two children, Malika and
Jonathan. Malika now has moved in to her own place, but
Jonathan is still with me.

They have both completed their university degrees and
are now working. Jonathan is working in advertising and
Malika is in Marketing. Their jobs take them away from
home often. Malika has a new website. You may even want
to visit it at http://www.BirdingClub.com (Yes, that's
her photo on the front page).

I have been busy with several new projects that I'll
share with you in future issues. I continue to give my
intuitive consultations and now have people calling
from all around the world. I do feel a great sense of
accomplishment in helping those who call or write for
consultations (http://www.IntuitiveConsultations.com).
But I will continue to write more books, give more
lectures and stay in touch with all of you -- and much
more often.


A number of you have telephoned to say that you've sent
me email, but never got a response. What we found is
that a good percentage of email never reach the
intended recipient. The filters may have prevented your
email from getting to me, or my email never got to you.
My apologies. If you want to email me, please use this
email address:

JohnHarry at insight2000.com

I've provided this address only for subscribers to
Insight2000 newsletter. I'd love to hear from you.

I now have readers as far away as China, Finland,
Siberia and Yugoslavia. Then there are my special
friends from Johannesburg and Pretoria in the Gauteng
province of South Africa. Perhaps one of these days,
I'll be able to visit you in South Africa and ride the
famous Blue Train.

And to my readers in Brisbane and Sydney, Australia, I
wish you a wonderful day. There are too many cities and
countries to mention here, but I am in touch with all
of you through that invisible bond that touches us

Oh, one last thing before we get into the newsletter.
Anita Bergen, my assistant of many years, has always
been interested in helping people to further their
education. To that end, she put together some helpful
resources for online degrees at her new website:

I urge you to visit her website and get the free
information she provides. Continual learning keeps us
young in body and spirit.

Thank you. Now on to the newsletter. The theme for this
issue is "Time".


"I think these difficult times have helped me
understand better that so many things that one goes
around worrying about are of no importance whatsoever."
--Isak Dinesen

"Someone once told me that time is a predator that
stalks us all our lives. But maybe time is also a
companion ... who goes with us on a journey and reminds
us to cherish the moments of our lives - because they
will never come again. We are, after all, only mortal."
--Captain Jean-Luc Picard - "Star Trek Generations"

"If there was ever a time to dare, to make a
difference, to embark on something worth doing, it is
now. Not for any grand cause, necessarily... but for
something that tugs at your heart, something that's
your inspiration, something that's your dream. You owe
it to yourself to make your days here count. Have fun.
Dig deep. Stretch. Dream big." --Pablo Casals


A John Harricharan Article

When I was much younger, I thought that education would
be the answer to all my problems, so I went about
obtaining degrees. I collected a good number of them
including a summa cum laude degree in chemistry and
mathematics, and an MBA among others. But I found that
my education, even though it helped tremendously, did
not bring real satisfaction. So I put the certificates
and diplomas in the bathroom under glass and wrote,
"Break in Case of Emergency."

Then I started working for Fortune 500 companies and
became intrigued with those who frequented the
boardrooms of power and fame. And though a part of me
was fascinated, thrilled and even enjoyed the trappings
of power, there was something that was missing, which I
couldn't put my finger on. My heart and spirit were
crying out for something that I couldn't find in major

Still searching for the "Holy Grail" I became an
entrepreneur and built a very successful,
multi-national business with offices in the United
States, the Caribbean, Africa, India and the United
Kingdom. Life seemed good. I traveled the world, wined
and dined with leaders of industry and even leaders of
countries. I was treated as a prince, but still it all
felt empty and useless.

Wherever I sought for peace and prosperity and
happiness, I'd find prosperity without the peace or I'd
discover abundance without the happiness. Finally, one
day, as I sat on my wife's deathbed (she was only in
her thirties when she died), it became clear to me that
my happiness, peace and prosperity were not dependent
on anything external, but on that which was within me,
that which had always been with me from my very first
day on Earth.

So I started to look within me and discovered a
wonderland beyond imagination. I realized that the one
spiritual practice more important than all the others
that could bring me peace, happiness and prosperity was
the practice of going into the "silence" deep within
me. Some call it meditation or prayer, others refer to
it as contemplation or centering oneself. I do not know
what it should be called, but I think of it as the

In the great silence within, I become renewed,
refreshed and excited to face the physical world. When
I return from my moments of silence or meditation, I
feel great waves of joy. I feel peaceful, secure and
safe. Perhaps in the depths of my being, there is a
place of beautiful silence where I meet my Creator and
where I find renewal of body, mind and spirit. Perhaps
true success and peace emanate from this silent

Many years ago, I wrote the following:

"Whenever problems seem to get the best of me, whenever
I feel them closing in on me, I go to a quiet place
that lies somewhere in my soul. I do not reason,
analyze or think. Those will come later. I simply go.
From this place of silence, I garner strength and
inspiration to stand firm in the face of fire, to be
calm in the midst of thunder. When I emerge, the world
has not changed, but I have. And in changing, a whole
new world is born."

I find that is as true today as when I first wrote it
or thought it. Success, whichever way we define it,
whether by money standards, health or happiness
standards, is not a game of chance. It springs from
deep within us, from our deepest thoughts and beliefs.
It has to do with our fears and hopes and it flows
eternally from our spiritual center of gravity.

Go into the silence within you. Try to do so a number
of times each day. Let your true self speak to you.
Listen to the "still, small voice", which is always
there. You will find calm, peace and prosperity unknown
in ordinary times. You'll find a new and joyous path
opening ahead of you and you'll be delighted in the
glorious adventures that await around the corner.


"Love and time -- those are the only two things in all
the world and all of life that cannot be bought, but
only spent."
--Gary Jennings

"Start living now. Stop saving the good china for that
special occasion. Stop withholding your love until that
special person materializes. Every day you are alive is
a special occasion. Every minute, every breath, is a
gift from God."
--Mary Manin Morrissey

POEM: "A Secret Place"

"He that dwells in the Secret Place of the Most High
shall abide under the Shadow of the Almighty."

I know a bower, deep within my mind,
Passionless and pure and quiet all along.
A place where silence reigns most all the time,
And faith is crowned with hope and joy and song.

The place was there since ever I was born,
Silent, serene, surrounded and still.
A light is there which shines from dusk till dawn,
And lilies bloom, and birds to anthems thrill.

When in the outer world of time and space
The wind blows cold and hearts are sad with grief,
I take a journey to this quiet place
Where body, soul and all find full relief.

Within your mind, I know there is a room
Where peace and joy and happiness abound,
A place of rest where light dispels the gloom;
So seek this sacred spot until it's found.

--John Harricharan


Take time to think; it is the source of Power.
Take time to read; it is the foundation of Wisdom.
Take time to play; it is the secret of staying Young.
Take time to quiet; it is the opportunity to seek God.
Take time to love and be loved ; it is God's greatest Gift.
Take time to laugh; it is the music of the Soul.
Take time to be friendly; it is the road to Happiness.
Take time to dream; it is what the future is made of.
Take time to pray; it is the greatest power on earth."

"You will never 'find' time for anything. If you want
time you must make it."
--Charles Buxton


Last year, about this time, I offered my e-course on
"How to Write a Book and Make it a Bestseller". I
mentioned that the course was not going to be offered
again this year, and I never did offer it again --
until now.

Every time I have offered this e-class, it filled up
within two weeks. Again I am offering it to the readers
of Insight2000 newsletter. All the information you need
can be found at the website:


If you've ever thought of writing a book and becoming
an author, this is the class for you. The e-class
starts on November 30th. Every week or so, for five
weeks, starting on November 30th, I will email a lesson
to you, complete with an assignment. Your part is to
study the lesson, complete the assignment and return it
to me by email.

I will personally go through your assignment and answer
your questions about the lesson. I'll give you guidance
and help you with one thought in mind...

*To help you write and publish your very own book and
turn it into a best-seller*

Because of the special nature of the e-class, I have to
limit registration to 15 participants. This is so that
I can give personalized attention to each and every one.
Some of you may remember that the last time I offered
this class, I had to deny registration to a number of
people because the class filled up so quickly. Please
do not let that happen again. Register early.

Start your new year by giving yourself the gift of your
own book. Become an author in the coming year. If
you're already an author, this class will still be of
tremendous help to you. Sign up for the e-class now.

"There are many fine things which you mean to do some
day, under what you think will be more favorable
circumstances. But the only time that is surely yours
is the present, hence this is the time to speak the
word of appreciation and sympathy, to do the generous
deed, to forgive the fault of a thoughtless friend, to
sacrifice self a little more for others. Today is the
day in which to express your noblest qualities of mind
and heart, to do at least one worthy thing which you
have long postponed, and to use your God-given
abilities for the enrichment of some less fortunate
fellow traveler. Today you can make your
life...significant and worthwhile. The present is yours
to do with it as you will."
--Grenville Kleiser
