HOW TO BE ONE OF THE "CHOSEN" PEOPLE
by Larry Heisler,
"Only a life lived in service to others is worth
"Thou shalt be a mandala to each other."
Sunday sermon, Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. explained the importance of this commandment. Reading
from the King James Bible, Book of Mark, Chapter Ten, Verses 35
through 45, we discover that Jesus' disciples James and John have a
request for the master:
35 "Master," they
said, "We would that thou shouldst do
for us whatsoever we shall desire."
36 "And he said unto
them, what would ye that I should do for
37 " They said unto
him, Grant unto us that we may sit, one at thy right hand, and the
other on thy left hand, in thy glory."
40 "But to sit at my
right hand and my left hand is not mine to give; but it shall be
given to them for whom it is prepared."
43 "But so shall it not
be among you: but whosoever will be great among you, shall be your
44 "And whosoever of
you will be the chiefest, shall be servant
Dr. King read this passage he gave one of his most inspiring
services. These are direct quotes from his sermon:
said, "The setting is clear..., James and John are making a
specific request of the master. They had dreamed..., as most of the
Hebrews dreamed, of a coming King of Israel, who would set Jerusalem
free and establish his kingdom on Mt. Zion and in righteousness rule
the world. And they thought of Jesus as this kind of king and they
were thinking of that day when Jesus would reign
supreme, this new king of Israel. And they were saying now..., when
you establish your kingdom..., let one of us sit
on thy right hand and the other on thy left hand of your throne...
quickly, we would automatically condemn James and John, we would say
they were selfish. Why would they make such a selfish request? But
before we dare condemn them too quickly, let us look calmly and
honestly at ourselves... and we will discover that we too have those
same basic desires for recognition..., for importance... That same
desire for attention..., that same desire to be first. Of course the
other disciples got mad at James and John and you could understand
why... We must understand that we have some of the same James and
John qualities. That in deep down..., in all of us..., an
instinct..., it's a kind a... drum major instinct. A desire to be out
front, a desire to lead the parade, a desire to be first. It is something
that runs a whole gamut of life. And so before we condemn them, let
us see that we all have the drum major instinct..., we all want to be
important, to surpass others, to achieve distinction, to lead the
concluded his sermon with the following: "What was the answer
that Jesus gave these men? It's very interesting..., one would have
thought that Jesus would have condemned them...,
one would have thought that Jesus would have said..., you're out of
your place, you're selfish, why would you raise such a question. But
that isn't what Jesus did. He did something altogether different you
see, he said..., in substance..., Oh I see..., you want to be
first?..., you want to be great?, you want to be important?, you want
to be significant?!..., Well you ought a be...!
if you're gonna be
my disciple, you must be...! He re-ordered priorities..., and he
said, yes, don't give up this instinct, it's a good instinct, if you
use it right..., it's a good instinct, if you don't distort and
pervert it..., don't give it up. Keep feeling the need for being
important! Keep feeling the need for being first! But I want you
to be first..., in love........! I want you to be
first... in moral excellence! I want you to be first... in
generosity! That is what I want you to do. He transformed the
situation by giving a new definition of greatness. And you know how
he said it..., he said now, brethren..., I can't give you
greatness...and really, I can't make you first... This is what Jesus
said to James and John..., you must earn it! True greatness comes
not by favoritism but by fitness... And the right hand and the
left are not mine to give..., they belong to
those who are prepared...! And so Jesus gave us a new nom of
greatness..., if you want to be important, wonderful..., if you want
to be recognized, wonderful..., if you want to be great,
wonderful...!, but recognize that he who is greatest among you...,
shall be your servant. That's a new definition of greatness! And
this morning..., the thing that I like about it..., by giving that
definition of greatness... it means, that everybody can be
great.... because everybody, can serve!"
Now to really
fulfill this commandment; to serve, uplift and inspire one
another, wherever you may go; you will need to know the
following. There are both light and dark forces on this planet. The
biblical concepts of alpha and omega, my father is a motion and a rest,
strongly support this notion. Taoist cosmology says, from the one
Great Spirit, come the two opposing forces, yin and yang, male and
female. Successful life on this planet is a balancing of these two
opposing forces, what the Taoists call yin and yang. Jesus supports
this concept when he says, when you learn to balance your
left hand from your right, your right hand from your left, the
kingdom of heaven shall be open unto you.
Before we embrace the prime
directive, before we even know our purpose in life, we are basically
unimportant to the great scheme of things. As simple shmendricks, we can disappear in this great stew
of life, left somewhat on our own recognizance. As long as we
continue to have nothing really outstanding to contribute, meandering
from one neurotic addiction/detour to another, this formula can
basically stand pat.
However, the moment we decide to embrace the prime
directive, everything changes. Physics tells us that "Every
action has an equal and opposite reaction." When you
begin to live in spirit and inspire those around you to evolve, you
become a danger to the forces of entropy, to the dark side. All of a
sudden, you are working on yourself. The greater your commitment to
personal transformation, the greater the chance that you will create
a remarkable shift in your life. Not only do you become more and more
extraordinary, but this evolutionary transformation will also
influence the lives of everyone around you, everyone the universe
sends your way. Over the course of your life you will touch the lives
of thousands, perhaps even millions of people. With all this growth,
you are now a threat to the stability (chaos) of the planet. If you
are fulfilling your natural destiny to evolve, you have chosen sides.
Remember, Mahatma Gandhi was virtually unknown before the age of
clearer you are, the more deeply the people you meet will be
transformed. Sometimes, all it will take is a word. It has to be the
exact right word at that exact right time. If you met a saint in the
elevator, what would that saint say? If they read you spiritually,
the magic of that moment could plant the seed to change your entire
life. So now, imagine yourself as that saint. You must be so empty of
yourself that you can discern and intuit what that word or phrase is
for a person you've never met. There are only a limited number of
people you can touch in the course of your life.
Get out there, the clock is ticking.
WARNING: Be vigilant,
because the dark side is much more sophisticated than you can
imagine. It is fueled by the earth's natural order and it can lurk in
the shadows of your lower self. It can come up with ways to throw you
off your spiritual path that are brilliant and devastating. Remember,
there is no good or bad in this, just opposing forces performing
their endless dance of life on this planetary level. It's the way
this place has been set up. Don't gripe. You will go beyond it, in
There are three main ways
the dark side will try to keep you from coming into your power:
It will bring up your old,
neurotic tapes and inequities,
the circumstances that have pressed your buttons since you were a
youngster. These button-pressing annoyances can include; fears,
insecurities, jealousies, impatience, your weight, the size of your
body parts, your hair, the size of your nose or butt; all in all,
your immature ego junk. The dark side will find ways to mess with
you, endlessly keeping you on the treadmill of reacting to this
stuff. Like a bad dream, you'll be on a permanent detour, a victim of
your mind. That is, until you stop feeding it. And when that
happens, you will move on and lose interest in fueling and supporting
your lower ego junk.
The temptations of life can be
very attractive. Money, power, security, companionship, and status,
are very alluring and intoxicating. After you have made the decision
to grow, the fun begins. The tests will come when you least expect
them. From left field or right in your own circle. Do you remember
what the devil, played by Al Pacino, said in the movie Devil's
Advocate? "I'm the hand up Mona Lisa's dress. They never see
Imagine......you're eating really well for perhaps, the first
time. Praying and meditating regularly, staying optimistic,
exercising, taking your vitamins, studying, really getting your life
together. Then, "poof", you show up on the dark side's
radar and suddenly, you get this great job offer, or the seemingly
perfect man or woman comes into your life, or the investment of a
life time becomes available or ____________________(fill in the
All the dark side needs to
do is give you a detour. If we can be detoured at critical times in
our life, our life can amount to nothing much really. Most people go
from one detour to another and at the end of their life you hear them
exclaim, "I had so many dreams, so many opportunities, I don't
know where the time has gone."
Just remember Jesus out on
the desert. He drew a sacred circle around himself for protection.
When the devil came and did his best to lure the master over to the
dark side, Jesus was capable of resisting. Be on the lookout for
the detours, pay attention, and use a jaundiced eye.
Sometimes you can lead an
impeccable life with few karmic mistakes, and stuff still happens.
You know, that "only the good die
young" idea. The last way the dark side can detour your life is
really not the dark side's own creation. We might define it as the
negative power influencing our life but really it's of our own
creation. In our soul's evolution, in our past lives, we have done
things that are less than admirable. Haven't you complained about
Murphy's Law (everything that can go wrong,
will go wrong) some time in your life? There have certainly been
times in my life where it has seemed all too much. Ram Dass used to say something like this, "Thank
you God for putting me through such crap." Chalk it up to all
those misspent past lives. Since we reap what we sow, and in the
grand scheme of things there is no time line, it's quite possible
that your suffering today is a product of some long past one
comeuppance. Maybe you come from a family of slave traders, butchers,
or warriors. Maybe you were in the Crusades or killed in self defense. Who knows? We have all witnessed
wonderful people suffering terribly for no apparent reason. Like we
said before, the only way to circumvent the unknown payoffs from
coming our way is through service. Serving humankind is like
working off a bad debt. You can lessen your karma's severity by
consistently thinking outward with an open heart.That's why they call it
karma yoga, the yoga of service.
If you were to die right
this very instant, what would your eulogy sound like? "He was a
wonderful man/woman, a devoted father/mother and friend. Remember the
year he donated money to the United Way and when he helped out for
the school play?" When eulogizing a deceased love one, it's
natural for a minister to be generous with praise and accolade. At my
own father's funeral, the eulogy made him almost unrecognizable. It
was, however, very consoling for my mother.
Have you ever been to a
funeral service where the deceased wasn't one of the greatest people
that ever lived?
Florinda Donner-Grau is one of Carlos Castenada's
teachers. Castenanda was a very successful
author and spiritual teacher in the 20th century. His
remarkable books outlined the shamans with whom he studied, and their
mystical ways he explored. In a wonderful interview written by
Michael Brennan and published in the Utne
Reader, Florinda says, "Death is
your truest friend, and your most reliable
adviser. If you ever have doubts about the course of your life, you
have only to consult your death for proper direction. Death will
never lie to you."
Wouldn't it be cool if the
minister at your own funeral could say with total honesty, that you
lived an impeccable life? How you made a personal stand for truth,
for people and for children. How you touched people's hearts with
your warmth and your humor, and most importantly, how you touched
people's hearts with your love.
"It was in particular,
the amazing quality of your love that inspired us to be better people
ourselves. Your committed, devoted life improved the quality of our
lives and that made a powerful difference in our world."
Why couldn't this be your
eulogy? Why can't we step up to this?
Jesus said "Renew
yourself by the renewing of your mind." So this moment, this
very instant while you are reading these words, talk to yourself.
Believe that this is what your life can be about. And know it! Hilda
called this immediate adjustment of the mind "an instant
shock of God awakening."
Remember the master's words,
"Far greater things, you shall do, than I have
done." It's time to begin a dialogue with you. To push
yourself to become most extraordinary, you have to prime the divine
pump in yourself to bring out your own mojo. Remember the revelation
John Belushi's character had in church in The
Blues Brothers? He heard from on high....he was on a Mission
from God! Aren't we all on a mission from God? Live today with
the same level of honesty and sincerity you would if it were your
There was a great Cuban
shaman (Santeria) in Jersey City named Orestes who devoted his life
to practicing the healing art of spiritual medicine. He would invoke
the healing powers and direct them to purge his patients of their
afflictions. He was real, he was spiritually beautiful, and was he
powerful. On Mondays, Orestes would invite selected people from the
public to his studio. It was there he would teach and transform the
room into a spiritual vortex for healing, and like a coach, he made
you believe in your innate ability to feel, to intuit and to develop
your inner sight. He would scream at us, "Open your
eyes! What do you see?" Orestes didn't really care if we saw
the person's aura or energy field. He was trying to get us to see
beyond our limitations, so he would keep banging at us, "What
do you see?" We could have said anything, "I see orange
or I see a rainbow." It didn't really make a difference as long
as e were
attempting to project our inner sight. Orestes would continue, "Open
your heart...what do you feel? Go beyond your little self.....use
your God given gifts! USE YOUR GIFTS! OPEN YOUR HEART!" After
two hours of banging down our own egos and week after week of pushing
ourselves beyond our spiritual limits, our inner voices and sight
gradually awakened, and new healing sensibilities would take hold.
The point is, to fulfill the
prime directive and actually live up those powerful words, you are going to need to talk to yourself,
to psyche yourself up daily with a tremendous optimism. You literally
have to step up as if you were a great spiritual athlete. There
is, however, one thing that you can do to top the original great
eulogy. Perhaps the only life-path more profoundly graced than
expressed before. Live up to all those amazing words and do it anonymously.
You heard me right. Leave no trail, particularly if your life really
changed the world. In his books, Carlos Castaneda introduces us to
his teacher, a master shaman called Don Juan. Don Juan taught Carlos
Castaneda, "It is imperative to leave aside what is
called personal history." In a divine state the
"me", as in personal importance, just doesn't count.
I've worked with many people
while they were in the final stages of their lives and found that
those who served, uplifted, and inspired the
most were the most blessed. They were also not as afraid of dying. In
fact, they were very much at peace. The only thing you can bring with
you to the other side is the growth you have acquired, and one of the
only ways I know to circumvent life's travails is by making a
If what you reap is what you sow and every action has
an equal and opposite reaction, then be
first in excellence, be first in love, and be first in service. Use
your every waking moment to inspire your brothers and sisters into
awake-ness and establish yourself as a center of peace and
love you take is equal to the love you make."

Over 45 million
Americans (about one in six) suffer chronic headaches each year.
Headaches therefore have a big economic impact -- when you have
a throbbing pain in your head, it's hard to work. The cost of
these headaches in absenteeism and medical expenses is estimated as
high as $50 billion per year. Annually, people seeking
treatment for headache pain account for 8 million consultations with
physicians. There are multiple causes of headaches and while
most of these causes are not in the domain of massage therapy,
tension and structural causes which account for many, are. Join
us for a comprehensive look at headaches and a surefire treatment
plan that can be utilized for headache sufferers regardless of what
the cause might be. We have created a sophisticated massage

techniques like trigger point therapy, connective and deep tissue
bodywork with traditional shiatsu for the neck, shoulders and upper

It's not just from the increased revenue, which is nice; it's also
about how well the stones fit into a great massage therapy session.
The ability to use heated stones to sculpt muscle and provide
exceptional deep tissue work is an added advantage. Unfortunately

injuries have been reported. As one of the original three schools in

Foot and hand work is
something most massage therapists are weak in. For whatever reason,
many schools gloss over this very important part to your massage. At
our school we teach that good foot and hand work can be the
difference between a satisfied client and one that will go elsewhere.
This class will help you hone your foot and hand work, giving you a
new, fresh approach that will have your clients returning again and
again for more. Our deep tissue approach includes the neuromuscular
trigger point work that will help eradicate pain and tension as in
addressing plantar fasciitis or arthritic hand complaints and combine
the most powerful shiatsu points on the legs and arms, feet and
hands. The acupuncture/acupressure points in Japan are known as tsubos. The specific tsubos
called the Go, Gen, Sei points are one the
secrets to an extraordinary session in Japanese shiatsu or Chinese Tui Na. This is not a reflexology class that
requires a completely different serious course of study. The
combination of trigger points and shiatsu makes it some of the most
powerful foot and hand massage work you'll ever experience.

Study finds that vaccine does not lessen
influenza illness severity!
- Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy Nov 27, 2013
influenza vaccine did not reduce the risk of hospitalization for flu
after vaccine failure, according to an analysis of 8 years of data
published yesterday in Vaccine.
Over eight flu
seasons starting in 2004, scientists from the Marshfield Clinic
Research Foundation in Marshfield, Wis., enrolled all adults who
presented with an acute respiratory infection. They recorded hospital
admissions within 14 days after illness onset for all those with lab-confirmed
investigators found that patients who had received the trivalent flu
vaccine had no significant reduction in risk of hospitalization for
any type of influenza or for the influenza A or B subgroups. Adjusted
odds ratios were 1.08 for any influenza, 1.35 for influenza A, and
0.67 for influenza B.
conclude, "These findings do not support the hypothesis that
vaccination mitigates influenza illness severity."
