"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.

Dear Reader:

Yes, yes, I know that it has been a long time since you've heard from me. Much has occurred over the past months. One of the more exciting and fun events of the past number of months was my lecture tour of Cambodia, Thailand and South Korea.

Also there was my visit to Washington, D.C. to attend Yanik Silver's seminar. Then there was my visit to the Book Expo America in New York City where I met many old friends and found some new ones. Now, in about a week, I'll be in Los Angeles at Mark Victor Hansen's gathering.

But it was not all fun. Some of it was downright frightening. For example, after I returned from Southeast Asia, I was diagnosed with a full-blown case of pneumonia. That took the wind out of my sails for quite a while. Yet, I have always believed that life, with all its ups and downs, is a glorious adventure, depending on how we look at it.

The article in this issue will help bring some perspective to the problems and challenges we often seem to face. Because we are human and involved with the affairs of life and living, it is inevitable that we will bump into problems along the way. In the article, I share with you some simple thoughts.

There are two very important announcements, which you'll find in the section below called "Some Important Information". Please take a few minutes to go through that section.

Also please pass the article or the entire newsletter on to as many friends and family as possible. Let's all join to make this world a better place for everyone.

Thank you. Now on to the newsletter.

P.S. If you have not yet seen the inspirational video called, "The Lesson of Professor Petersen", you'll find it on YouTube by clicking on this link (you'll be amazed at the lesson) :

"Whenever the world seems to get the best of me, whenever I feel it 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. And as a frightened child finds comfort and strength in a loving parent, I find my God and a band of loving Invisibles. From this place of power, I garner strength to stand firm in the face of fire, to be calm in the midst of thunder. When I emerge from this sanctuary, the world has not changed but I have. And in my changing a whole new world is born."
-- John Harricharan

ARTICLE: "A Matter of Trials and Gifts"

A John Harricharan Article

This past summer, my patience and strength and even my tolerance were tested sorely. It wasn't that I expected everything to always go right, but it was more like seeing everything go right and wrong, all at the same time. It could be confusing and really frustrating.

Now, I know that all of us go through such times. I don't really understand why such things happen, but I don't believe that I have to understand everything in life to be able to live a fulfilling and productive life. It is somewhat like knowing that you don't have to understand everything about an airplane before you take a flight to another city or country.

I have long since figured out (I think all of us have) that there will be good times and not-so-good times in life. I have also learned that I should enjoy and appreciate the good times and tolerate and wade through the not-so-good-times. Why? Because both good times and not-so-good times will come to an end.

Rainy days always lead to sunny days. The reverse is also true: Sunny and warm days will eventually lead to some rainy and cold days. They are all a part of life and living. In the long run, it is not whether we meet rainy days or sunny days that matters. Instead, what matters most is how we deal with such days.

I have visited many countries on our planet, but have never been to Cambodia, Thailand or South Korea. When the opportunity arose last summer, it was like a dream come true. I was excited. I was really delighted. I was going to address different audiences, enjoy different scenery, taste different cuisines -- really thrill to the different cultures and people.

Yes, all of that happened. I enjoyed every bit of the trip. The people were delightful, the lectures worked out nicely and the entire experience was one that I will never forget. But there was a downside. I came back with a full-blown case of pneumonia. I was incapacitated for quite a while. Of course, I did recover, as you can see from this article, but I was a bit shaken up.

Why did that have to happen during my trip? Why didn't it happen before or after such an important event? To make it worse, a number of people sent me emails or called expressing surprise that someone such as I could become ill. "How come, John," they queried, "with your level of consciousness could this happen. People like you shouldn't get sick." I was hesitant to tell them that I didn't quite know all the answers, but that I had figured that so long as we are on Earth, we'd experience problems.

An old friend of mine, Richard Bach, author of the world famous bestsellers, "Jonathan Livingston Seagull" and "Illusions" once said something to the effect of, "There is never a problem without a gift for you in its hands. We seek problems because we need their gifts." Problems bring us gifts. It may be unpleasant while we are experiencing the problem, but if we reflect and look deeper, we would find the gift.

Richard Bach also said that what we do with the gift is up to us. Much as I disliked the illness, the gift that it brought me was one of awareness--awareness that I was not taking enough time for myself, that I was always busy and needed to slow down a bit and, most important, I should respect and be grateful for the physical body I have and should take much better care of it.

By accepting the "gift" of my problem, I was able to heal more quickly and I committed myself to not working as hard as I used to. Life became much more pleasant. Of course, most assuredly there will be problems in life -- your life, my life, everyone's life. Let's look for the gift that the problem brings instead of just looking at the problem.

Dolly Parton once said, "The way I figure it is that if you want the rainbow, you gotta put up with the rain." I say something similar, "If you want the roses, you have to tolerate the thorns." Remember, it's not the tough situation so much that is the problem; rather, it's how we look at the situation and what we think about it that determine what gift the problem will bring us.


"I've always found a gift hidden in every adversity. That doesn't make adversity any easier; it only makes it more meaningful."
-- Dan Millman

"Pain makes man think. Thought makes man wise. Wisdom makes life endurable."
-- John Patrick


If you've ever wanted to write a book and make it a success, I will help you. For the first time this year, I am again offering my eclass on how to write your book and promote it using methods most authors, or authors-to-be are not aware of.

For those who were unable to get into the most recent class (about a year ago), you now have an opportunity to sign up for the next eclass, which starts on November 29th.

These classes normally fill up quickly once I've announced them to the readers of this newsletter. Because of the personal attention given to each person who registers for the class, I cannot accept more than 15 new registrants. You'll find all the information at the website:

For the few who constantly wonder if I recommend a book because I make a commission or earn any money from the sale, let me assure you that I recommend it only because it's worthy of attention. I earn no money from the sale of this book. The only thing I earn is a warm feeling that if you read it and pick up just one gem, your life will never again be the same.

The book I talk about is called, "The Solution is at Hand" by the late Dottie Walters and award-winning author, Terri Marie. I was privileged to have met Dottie a few years ago and even attended one of her all-day seminars. She was a remarkable woman who was known by such luminaries as Norman Vincent Peale, Earl Nightingale, Tom Antion, Napoleon Hill and others.

The best way for you to get all the information about this special book is to go directly to the site at:

Please Click Here

You'll be able to download the book immediately after the purchase. It's a book you'll want to read and reread time and time again. Go get your copy now while you are thinking about it and start seeing magic in your life as you apply the simple steps Dottie wrote for you.

POEM: "Ageless"(A John Harricharan Poem)

I have trod this path before me
Ever since this world began.
I have seen the self-same places
Through the mighty, ageless span.

When the earth was just a-borning,
When the sky above was made,
I was walking 'neath the palm trees
In Thine everlasting shade.

I have seen the wondrous morning
Of Creation's glorious day,
When I walked with the Creator
And I heard what He did say.

I can still remember strangely
When the human race was born.
I can still recall the glory
Of that first and happy morn.

Now I walk, again, this path here
And I seek the still small voice.
And I hear again the music
As worlds within rejoice.

Lovely Venus beckons onward,
Mars and myriad others call,
Like they did when first I saw them.
Now, I surely do recall.

--John Harricharan


"Adversity is the first path to truth."
-- Anthony J. D'Angelo

"There is no such thing as a problem without a gift for you in its hands. You seek problems because you need their gifts." -- Richard Bach

Anita Bergen's book, "Life and Other Options" is one you'll want to read and reread as often as possible. It has quotations and affirmations for every event in our lives.

Remember: "God left the world unfinished for man to work his skill upon. He left the electricity still in the cloud, the oil still in the earth. How often we look upon God as our last and feeblest resource! We go to Him because we have nowhere else to go. And then we learn that the storms of life have driven us, not upon the rocks, but into the desired haven."
-- - George MacDonald

A few "John Harricharan" quotes

 "You do not really believe what you see. Instead, you actually see what you believe. So, if you do not like what you are seeing, examine your belief systems and make the necessary changes."
---John Harricharan

 "Whatever you see in your mind -- good or bad -- if you believe it with your whole Body, mind and spirit, it will come to pass. Creation starts in your mind with your thoughts and imaginationÉ As you think and believe, so it becomes."
---John Harricharan
 "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."
---John Harricharan
