"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."

Dear Reader:

It is good to be in touch with you again. Somehow I'd like to think that my readers and I have formed over the years, or months, or even weeks, a giant, mastermind group. Just being in touch creates an energy that is beneficial to all of us.

It is true that in about five weeks from now, the year 2007 would have passed and a whole, new year will be born. Time seems to pass so quickly, and yet, it may be as the poet once said: "Time goes, you say? No, time stays. We go." Wherever it is that we go, let us go with the knowledge that we are, strange as it may seem, a part of a friendly universe.

Today's article is a result of a question I was once asked in an interview. I have reprinted it so that you may again be reminded of who you are and of the absolute dignity of the human spirit. Feel free to pass it on to those who are near and dear to you.

For those of you who did not read my last newsletter, I mentioned that I'll be offering my "How to Write a Bestseller" eclass again. This is the first time in about a year that it has been offered. Because of the personalized attention I give to each registrant, the class is limited to 15 people.

The class is almost completely filled. Only two places remain. If you would like to join this special writing class and want to take advantage of this offer, please go to the link below and register right away:


But you'll have to hurry. The class starts on Thursday, November 29, 2007. For those of you who've registered for the eclass, you'll receive lesson #1 on Thursday, November 29th before 12:00 midnight, Eastern Standard Time.

Thank you. Now on to the newsletter.


"There is guidance for each of us, and by lowly listening we shall hear the right word."
-- Ralph Waldo Emerson

"No one can give you wisdom. You must discover it for yourself, on the journey through life, which no one can take for you."
-- Sun Bear

ARTICLE: "The Single, Most Important Spiritual Practice"

A John Harricharan Article

Here is the question I was asked in a recent interview: "What is the single-most important spiritual practice that promotes peace and prosperity within your own life?"

Here's my answer:

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 corporate boardrooms.

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.

But wherever I sought for peace, prosperity and happiness, I'd find prosperity without the peace or I'd discover abundance without the happiness. Finally, one day, as I sat by 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 "silence".

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 sanctuary.

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."

(A version of the above can be found on YouTube by clicking Here

You may find it interesting to watch the short video. It only takes a minute and 56 seconds)

I find that it is as true today as when I first wrote 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.


"We are all pilgrims on the same journey-but some pilgrims have better road maps."
-- Nelson DeMille

"The ultimate value of life depends upon awareness and the power of contemplation rather than upon mere survival."
-- Aristotle


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:

POEM: "Abou Ben Adhem"

Abou Ben Adhem James Henry Leigh Hunt (1784-1859)

Abou Ben Adhem (may his tribe increase!)
Awoke one night from a deep dream of peace,
And saw, within the moonlight in his room,
Making it rich, and like a lily in bloom,
An angel writing in a book of gold.
Exceeding peace had made Ben Adhem bold,
And to the Presence in the room he said,
"What writest thou?" The vision raised its head,
And with a look made of all sweet accord
Answered, "The names of those who love the Lord."
"And is mine one?" said Abou. "Nay, not so,"
Replied the Angel. Abou spoke more low,
But cheerily still; and said, "I pray thee, then,
Write me as one that loves his fellow-men."

The Angel wrote, and vanished. The next night
It came again with a great wakening light,
And showed the names whom love of God had blessed,
And, lo! Ben Adhem's name led all the rest!


"What is the use of running when we are not on the right road?"
-- German Proverb

"Perhaps, one day this, too, will be pleasant to remember."
-- Anonymous
