Weekly Journal for the week of April 24

If you have not yet seen the movie “What the Bleep is Going on?” then I highly recommend that you do!

The movie explores many areas of life, but what interested me most is that it finally provides a clearly documented scientific basis for the basis of most so-called New Age personal awareness work, and its validity.

It clearly shows how our minds, feelings and thus our personal reality and experience works and is formed, and thus the fact that our reality is indeed within our power to keep or change.

I am delighted with this movie as it gives background to the seminars I have delivered world-wide for the past 20 years, in which we explore our current reality and the beliefs that form it, and then takes us through a process of learning how to change it, if we wish to. Watch the movie!

Speaking of personal reality, I continue to be impressed by the beliefs of the Bush administration about how to “solve” the world’s problems. Bush has just appointed incredibly unpopular and contentious people to run the World bank and as US Ambassador to the United Nations, just after he and Condi Rice did a “let’s be friends” tour of Europe he appoints key people who are basically hated, distrusted and reviled by Europe. Amazing.

A recent Europe-wide poll showed that 78% of people there consider America to be the greatest danger the world faces right now, and this helps prove their belief!

GUARANTEED TO MAKE YOU SMILE….. ESPECIALLY SINCE IT’S A TRUE STORY.

ON JULY 20, 1969, AS COMMANDER OF THE APOLLO 11 LUNAR MODULE, NEIL ARMSTRONG WAS THE FIRST PERSON TO SET FOOT ON THE MOON.

HIS FIRST WORDS AFTER STEPPING ON THE MOON, “THAT’S ONE SMALL STEP FOR MAN,” HEARD BY MILLIONS.

BUT JUST BEFORE HE REENTERED THE LANDER, HE MADE THE ENIGMATIC REMARK GOOD LUCK, MR. GORSKY.”

MANY PEOPLE AT NASA THOUGH IT WAS A CASUAL REMARK CONCERNING SOME RIVAL SOVIET COSMONAUT.

HOWEVER, UPON CHECKING, THERE WAS NO GORSKY IN EITHER THE RUSSIAN OR AMERICAN SPACE PROGRAMS.

OVER THE YEARS MANY PEOPLE QUESTIONED ARMSTRONG AS TO WHAT THE “GOOD LUCK, MR. GORSKY… STATEMENT MEANT, BUT ARMSTRONG ALWAYS JUST SMILED.

ON JULY 5, 1995, IN TAMPA BAY, FLORIDA, WHILE ANSWERING QUESTIONS FOLLOWING A SPEECH, A REPORTER BROUGHT UP THE 26-YEAR-OLD QUESTION TO ARMSTRONG.

THIS TIME HE FINALLY RESPONDED.

MR. GORSKY HAD DIED, SO NEIL ARMSTRONG FELT HE COULD ANSWER THE QUESTION.

IN 1938 WHEN HE WAS A KID IN A SMALL MIDWEST TOWN, HE WAS PLAYING BASEBALL WITH A FRIEND IN THE BACKYARD.

HIS FRIEND HIT THE BALL, WHICH LANDED IN HIS NEIGHBOR’S YARD BY THE BEDROOM WINDOWS.

HIS NEIGHBORS WERE MR. AND MRS. GORSKY.

AS HE LEANED DOWN TO PICK UP THE BALL, YOUNG ARMSTRONG HEARD MRS. GORSKY SHOUTING AT MR. GORSKY.

“SEX! YOU WANT SEX?! YOU’LL GET SEX WHEN THE KID NEXT DOOR WALKS ON THE MOON!”

TRUE STORY.
