How to read this newsletter:

Every two weeks I put out a newsletter and each newsletter contains three poignant sections. The first section, opening the newsletter is my keynote article filled with powerful spiritual insights based on my lifetime of spiritual study, practice and teaching. The second section, in the middle of the newsletter, is devoted to our Accredited Continuing Education Programs, our healing facilities and what's new and happening in and around New Jersey Massage.  The third section is devoted to health, wellness and environmental issues.

I sincerely hope you get inspired by what you read and I ask you to share this newsletter with your friends and family. If you have read or come across something that is newsworthy, please forward it to me and perhaps we can include it our newsletter.
Much Love...Larry 


 PLANET EARTH: Specifically Designed for Your Growth

by Larry Heisler, M.A., LMT

 

"He who is not busy being born, is busy dying"

Bob Dylan

 

I have been told by teacher after teacher that we choose to come to earth. That earth existence is a necessary course of study for our soul's evolution and eventual liberation. Furthermore, before we incarnate on this earthly plane, we design a spiritual blueprint, a life template, like a vision statement for our soul's journey down here. This map holds the momentum for circumstances of this life to unfold.  Essentially, before we take on existence, we choose the basic premises for this life's needed lessons. It is based on the karmic history of our soul's journey. Our families, our goals and major lessons to be experienced, all predestined. This concept of the "Sacred Contract" as Caroline Myss so beautifully shares in her work is our souls DNA pattern for this life. For us, seemingly the dye is cast. Obviously, as soon as we embody, we forget all of this. It doesn't even matter if we believe it, it really makes no difference. What's going to happen is going to happen. How we respond to life's lessons and learn and grow from them is what really counts.

 

          So... you're kind of on your own recognizance. Whether you realize it or not, by coming down to Earth, you've enrolled yourself into this Grand School of Evolution. It's here that every lesson is your lesson, created specifically pour vous.
As Ram Dass says, "It's the only dance there is."

 

          Now, let's explore the levels of evolution by using the metaphor of school grade levels and please remember the biblical tenet, "

"There are many mansions in my father's house."  

 

The Elementary School Level:

 

          The elementary school level of consciousness consists of people stuck in their first chakra. The first chakra's signature expression is that of survival and the fulfillment of basic needs. That means that people functioning in first chakra mentality have a primary vibratory rate that is worldly, base, very often vulgar, even animalistic. This survival mode is not that dissimilar to Darwin's "Survival of the fittest". It's a mere step up the evolutionary ladder from our canine and mammalian friends. This population makes up the most violent and self absorbed in our society. Crack, heroin, murder, deceit, thievery, even genocide, all have their origins in the fear and insecurity of new souls living at this primitive or basic level of consciousness. In Abraham Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs, these folks are on the first rung of the ladder of evolution, the neediest.

This levels mantra,

"What's in it for me?"

 

"When we are afraid of ourselves and afraid of the seeming threat the world presents then we become extremely selfish. We build our own little nests, cocoons to live securely."
Chogham Trunpa Rinpoche

 

The Junior High Level:

 

          Junior High level folks are the people that work their daily 9 to 5, come home, eat dinner and take a bowl of ice cream as they watch Matlock on television. They possess and quite often nurture their tribal prejudices and loyalties. They do little self inquiry as to the purpose of their existence or the many other spiritual considerations of life. These individuals are the hard working "schlubs" of our society or more respectfully, referred to as the "salt of the earth".

This levels mantra,

"There's a sale at Macy's".

   

The High School Level:

          

At this level of consciousness, we begin to see questioning as to the purpose of life. Why am I here, what is all this craziness about? Like itching powder under our spiritual skin, humans quest to understand, to evolve. It's in our DNA to grow. It is common to seek out individuals or long term traditions that appear to know the purpose of life or have answers. From EST training to Swami Mama-lama ding dong, high school level folks become born again anything, as long as their adopted persuasion has a semblance of an answer to the question. Even when this answer smacks of inconsistencies or clear hypocrisies, they are kept in the fold by their tribal elders with the faith card. "You must have faith, all your questions will be answered in the by and by". The new programming comes complete with a pledge of allegiance and a temporary identity card. Fill in your new label, "Hi, I'm Larry, I am a Zoroastrian". This allows us to hold onto some seemingly solid reality in a world that is increasing frightening, unstable and threatening to our security (ego). And it's precisely these labels that create the separation and division in our world. Whether it's genuine, intellectual sloth or tunnel blind comfortable, your new found security only lasts while you are not paying attention or listening to the folds

of fat developing around your waist. And you know gaining weight is one of the sure fire ways to tell you are full of poo about something.

This levels mantra;

"I believe, I believe, I believe, I really do! Honest..."

 

The College Level:

 

          At this level, the existential anxiety of "what is the purpose of life" begins to be all powerful. To sate or sedate the emptiness and pain, we try to fill ourselves in from the outside. Temporary as it might be, more money, more possessions, more women, more men, more diplomas, more food, more sex, more drugs, more power, more entertainment, all keep our inner hunger quiet and sometimes numb for a time. Unfortunately more wears thin and our hunger returns to remind us we are not fulfilling our

Prime Directive.

Remember?

To grow in every way you can and to uplift and serve wherever you may go.

This levels mantra,

"What do you want to do tonight?"

 

The Masters Level:

   

          The Bible states, "Seek ye first the kingdom of heaven and all else shall be prepared unto thee."

Two thousand years ago, this was a nice colloquial way of Jesus saying, work on yourself and everything you do will improve. Whether it is your relationships, your art, your music, your work, or your play, when you strive to grow by working on yourself, excellence usually follows. Secondarily, he's saying, "You take one step towards the Masters; they'll take 10 steps towards you."

 Incidentally, your emptiness does not go away when you become a famous household name or possess all the earth's riches. Remember what we said, filling yourself in from the outside doesn't fulfill your hearts longing; it just takes your attention off the spiritual barrenness of your life, and just temporarily at that. It can be a spiritual detour. When you do not live up to your higher self, life can become meaningless, and death often frightening. It often means you didn't have the perseverance, courage, will power or joie de vive, to live up to fulfilling your life's mission, your sacred contract.

 

          Remember the prime directive, to grow in every way you can and to uplift and inspire wherever you may go. By going inside, by working on ourselves, we begin to connect to our higher self, our destiny. This interior decorating is a full spectrum job, encompassing your body, mind, emotions and spirit. When you begin to undertake this overhaul, you will begin to get happy. After a bunch of years at this growth, evolution and excellence thing, you are no longer just a bro from Jabib; you are becoming St. Bro from Jabib. Your life will be a continuous teaching, a spiritual adventure movie. Every experience and every person will be part of the sets and cast. You're the producer, director, writer, and main actor. People who have the courage and will to lead a committed life are truly blessed. Their aging is not filled with fear, regrets or trepidation of the unknown. As they age, they fully come into their power and wisdom and so will you.

         

Take your choice of names;
Jesus, Buddha, Lao Tzu, Ramana Maharshi,
St. Theresa, Padre Pio, Ramakrishna, Confuscius, Rabbi Nachman, the list can be long and from every denomination. As they continued their intense daily spiritual work (sadhana), they discovered their internal lightning rod, their connection to the Great Spirit, the Father, the Tao, their higher self and purpose.

 

          So let's do a quick review on fulfilling your true destiny and getting your Master's degree, physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually.

 

          Physically it's about how and what you eat, the supporting supplements you take and the exercise that shapes your energetic system (breaking up your stagnation and hardness). Emotionally, it's learning how not to give your power away, how not to allow someone else to decide for you how you feel (victim mentality). Mentally it's training your mind to have pinpoint focus and then how to empty it and make it still like a crystal clear lake with no ripples ("Renew yourself by the renewing of your mind").

And finally, your Spiritual work is about doing street time, working to improve and uplift the world around you thus contributing to the world's evolution.

         

I would be amiss if I failed to mention that all this takes real consistency, commitment and bulldog determination. A spiritual life is a daily grind; you grind up your ego and make yourself invisible, like the Holy Spirit, a force to be reckoned with.

 

Like the St. Francis song written by Donavan:

"If you want your dream to be,
build it slow and surely.

S
mall beginnings greater ends.
Heartfelt work grows purely.

If you want to live life free,
Take your time go slowly.

Do few things but do them well.  

Simple joys are holy.

Day by day, stone by stone,

Build your secret slowly.

Day by day, you'll grow, too,

You'll know heaven's glory."

 

"The spiritual warrior is one who has the courage to face their personal inequities and transform themselves in to a better person. Those that have inherited a difficult path to walk in life, with terrible life obstacles to overcome, make a powerful spiritual example for all of us to celebrate! " Larry Heisler 

 

The

Doctoral Level

         

These are the individuals that have already graduated to the next level of consciousness (post doctoral, the next world). They seem to come down here from time to time and make a cameo appearance. Probably, more often than not, they go anonymously. They literally give up the heaven world they earned, through their lifetimes of courage, diligence and spiritual perseverance to make a return engagement. Hilda believed that many of her original students would get free of this world, in this lifetime. She would cajole us,

"One more lifetime kid?" She once asked the group, "Would you come back another lifetime kids, another lifetime, to be a light unto the world?"

What could we say? We really were having enough problems with this life and the thought of a future incarnation...it was just seemed so foreign to us at that time.
Now that I'm older and have lived in the Casa loca...maybe not.

 

          But remember, there would be no prospectors if there wasn't gold in them there hills. Just be certain it isn't fools gold.
My brother Richie sings in his great song the Swami Sweepstakes, "The spirit is here for all to share, it's in your hair, in the air, and it can't be bought, sold, bargained for wholesale or retail".

 

Pep Talk:  

"I am here to tell you, you are perfect, worthy instruments to do great planetary work.
If there is to be a future on this planet,
it will rest in the hands of those who have the courage to make a stand for truth,
for the children on this planet.
But it's going to take a monumental commitment on your part.
To step up like this, you must be really strong and focused because you will be attacked on every front.
From this day on, believe you are a district representative and spokesperson for the Holy Spirit.
The Essenes called themselves the sons and daughters of God.
If you are going to transform yourself and thus transform the world around you, you better believe that you are about your Father's work. You too are a son or daughter of the most high. Believe it, act like it! From this day forth attempt to take the high road with your whole heart and soul.
If you should fall,
pick yourself up and dust yourself off and carry on again and again.

The FDA has changed the labeling requirements listed on the labels of cholesterol lowering drugs called statins. These drugs are prescribed to prevent heart attacks in people with imbalances in their cholesterol and especially those with clogged arteries. The new labels will warn of memory loss and confusion. They were the third best-selling drug class in the U.S. for 2010 with sales of $18.8 billion.  

Should people taking statins be worried?

Statins and memory loss...can very occasionally be permanent.

Have you ever taken a sleeping pill? 

A major study tested prescription sleeping  pills. 
What they found out was unbelievable!

 

 10,529 patients received the pills and 23,676 matched controls received placebo for 2.5 years. Here's the results...

Those patients that took the real drugs had dramatic increases in death.

 

"Receiving hypnotic prescriptions was associated with greater than threefold increased hazards of death even when prescribed <18 pills/year." 

"with a significant elevation of incident cancer."

Great quote about detachment

   

 

 

MY FAVORITE THOUGHTS OF THE WEEK:

 

" Detachment is not that should own nothing.

But that nothing should own you."

Ali ibn abi Talib

 

F.Y.E
for your enjoyment

"The mammalian body has evolved over millions of years. Survival skills of human and animal at times seem almost supernatural. Science is constantly coming up with more discoveries about the amazing abilities of man and animal to survive. Each part of the body has highly sensitive work to perform for the survival and well being of the body as a whole.The body has a reason for every part of itself.

Hair is an extension of the nervous system, it can be correctly seen as exteriorized nerves, a type of highly evolved 'feelers' or 'antennae' that transmit vast amounts of important information to the brain stem, the limbic system, and the neocortex.

Not only does hair in people, including facial hair in men, provide an information highway reaching the brain, hair also emits energy, the electromagnetic energy emitted by the brain into the outer environment. This has been seen in Kirlian photography when a person is photographed with long hair and then rephotographed after the hair is cut.

When hair is cut, receiving and sending transmissions to and from the environment are greatly hampered. This results in numbing-out .

Cutting of hair is a contributing factor to unawareness of environmental distress in local ecosystems. It is also a contributing factor to insensitivity in relationships of all kinds. It contributes to sexual frustration."
