"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've been in touch, with you. The problem with email these days is everyone sends tons of emails selling everything on Earth. The problem I have is that I only send you three or four newsletters a year and hardly sell anything. If you look carefully, you'll see that this is the second newsletter I am sending out this year.

However, that is about to change. I will be trying to send out a newsletter, at least once a month. Those of you who've written to me asking me to send my newsletter more often, I've heard you. I am glad you enjoy the life-affirming articles, the inspirational quotes and the other information.

But please, please do me a favor. If you do not read or intend to read my newsletters, please go to the bottom of the email you used to get to this page and take yourself off the list. I will be sad to see you go, but I will know that only those who really want to benefit from Insight2000ezine will remain on the mailing list.

At least, I won't have to contend with readers like the one guy who wrote irate emails that he hated my newsletter and that I was not spiritual because he read somewhere that I eat chicken. He said that anyone who eats chicken is evil. All he had to do was to unsubscribe.

Or the other person who told me to stop writing these "silly newsletters" and prepare for the imminent invasion from Saturn so that I will be saved. I guess that with thousands of readers from over 150 countries, there will always be a few who would have major, divergent views about reality. And that's OK. There's an easy way for them to solve the problem. All they have to do is to take their names off the list.

And, yes, every once in a while, I recommend that you buy something that costs a few dollars. The reason for that is I really believe that the recommendation would help you. Most times, I send you gifts -- like free copies of my award-winning bestsellers, valuable audio files and such.

So again, if you do not read or intend to read my newsletters, if you think I shouldn't eat chicken or that I should prepare for the invasion from Saturn, just go to the bottom of the email that brought you to this page and follow the link that will remove your name from my list. I will miss you for a while, but life will continue. It always does.

Please read the section later in this newsletter that is called, "Some Important Information." It'll tell you about my writing and publishing course, which I give somewhat infrequently. It will offer you a chance to become an author. If you're at all interested in writing a book, or in getting your manuscript published, please let me know right away since this eclass always fills up quickly.

And now, thank you, and on to the newsletter.


P.S. I am also on FaceBook if you search for "John Harricharan"


"Prepare yourself for that which you are seeking. Know that what you are seeking is also seeking you. Know that the forces of the universe will rush in to bring that which you want, provided of course, you want it badly enough and believe that you can get it -- or better yet, deserve it."
--John Harricharan

"You do not need to leave your room. Remain sitting at your table and listen. Do not even listen, simply wait. Do not even wait, be quite still and solitary. The world will freely offer itself to you to be unmasked, it has no choice, it will roll in ecstasy at your feet."
--Franz Kafka

ARTICLE: "A Dog's Tale"

A John Harricharan Article

Long, long ago, I once had a dog. He was a beautiful dog, a purebred collie called Rajah. It's not that I didn't have other dogs before -- dogs with names that didn't seem dog-like, yet they were my dogs with names I picked for them -- names like Gelert, Magnet, Titan and such other monickers. But I digress, so let me get back to Rajah.

Rajah and I would run around the yard, go for long walks and generally enjoy life as only man and dog could. But one day, in that long ago time, my dog taught me a lesson that has remained with me and serves me well even to this day.

I had just returned from an overseas trip to East Africa. In those days, I traveled extensively and was able to visit some of the most fascinating places on Earth. But no matter how beautiful the scenery, how wonderful the visits, returning home was always a joy.

Soon after I arrived home, I decided to take Rajah for a short walk. After all, I hadn't seen him in almost two weeks. He must have been very excited to see me again because he started running all over the place, coming up to me, running away from me, returning back and then running away again.

After a while, it was time for me to go back into the house so I walked up to Rajah with the thought of putting the leash on him and taking him back. The minute he saw me coming to get him, he turned around and started running away. I ran after him, but to no avail. The more I chased him, the faster and farther he ran. This kept on for about five minutes and I was beginning to become a bit frustrated.

Perhaps, Rajah thought it was a new game to have me chasing after him, but whatever he thought didn't matter to me anymore. I was tired after my long flight and wanted to rest a bit and spend some time with my human family. So again, I ran after Rajah. Again he ran away. Every time I stopped running after him, he'd stop and look at me.

Suddenly, a new idea came to mind. I turned around, and started running away from Rajah. Immediately he chased after me and came right up close, so that I could put the leash on and take him back to his dog house.

You may be wondering what all this has to do with a lesson. Well, you see, solutions to our problems are somewhat like Rajah. That's what I learned many years ago. The more we chase after solutions, the farther away they seem to be. The answers seem to run away from us. However, when we stop running and put the problem out of our minds, the answers start running toward us.

Don't run after the answers to your problems. Just relax, become quiet and let the answers flow into your mind. The longest conversation we have is the one we have with ourselves from the moment we wake up to the moment we fall asleep.

Because we're busy talking to ourselves, the internal noise crowds out the very answers we're seeking. It is in becoming still that we start to hear the answers to our problems, we start to recognize the still, small voice of the universe.

It doesn't matter what the problems are. It could be a matter of money, relationship or health. The same force that solves one problem could solve any of the others. All we have to do is stop running, get quiet and create an environment in our being where the solutions come to us.

Rajah has been gone for many years, but he left me with a lesson that has served me well to this day. Desperately run after solutions to your problems and the very solutions you need will run away from you. Stop running and become quiet, and those solutions you thought were beyond your reach will come to you and change your world.


"Ask, and it will be given you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you."
--Bible -- Luke 11:9

"Now and then it's good to pause in our pursuit of happiness and just be happy."
--Guillaume Apollinaire

POEM: "My Wage"

Jessie B. Rittenhouse

I bargained with Life for a penny,
And Life would pay no more,
However I begged at evening
When I counted my scanty store.

For Life is a just employer,
He gives you what you ask,
But once you've set the wages,
Why, you must bear the task.

I worked for a menial's hire,
Only to learn dismayed,
That any wage I had asked of Life,
Life would have gladly paid.


"Seeking after security, at the cost of all else, will bring security at the cost of everything else. Seek security as a means to an end and never as an end in itself."
--John Harricharan

"Wherever you go in the midst of movement and activity, carry your stillness within you. Then the chaotic movement around you will never overshadow your access to the reservoir of creativity, the field of pure potentiality." --Deepak Chopra

After many years, I've overhauled one of my websites, PowerPause.com. There are new photos, a new updated look and a new discounted price. Check it out. The price is the lowest it has ever been. I will honor that price for a short while longer.


If you have not read "The Powerpause -- 3 Minutes, 3 Steps to Personal Success and Real Happiness," you may be surprised at how simple it is to meet and overcome the challenges in your life.

Yanni Maniates is an expert in things spiritual. His book, "Magical Keys to Self-Mastery: Creating Miracles in Your Life" has my highest recommendation.

By the way, this book is the winner of the North American Bookdealers (NABE) 2007 Pinnacle Book Achievement Award for Inspirational books.

Also, make sure you read the "Hero 4" interview. I'm sure you'll get a good laugh and some practical advice. Visit this site at:

I think you'll really like the short interview.


Heather O'Hara has released her new book, "Quantum Truths." For everyone who gets a copy, she is also giving a free copy of the classic, "Flung from the Edge by a Master." Go to:


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. I have found it a most valuable resource. It is a digital book and you can download your own copy by going to her website:

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 imagination… 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
