"The future is a probability. In terms of ordinary experience, nothing exists there yet. It is virgin territory, planted by my feelings and thoughts in the present…Therefore, I will plant accomplishments and successes, and I will do this by remembering that nothing can exist in the future that I do not want to be there.”


Here's an email I received today, to go along with the one entitled "PMS NO MORE" (HERE and below). The are two wonderful examples and samples of what is happening for people dedicated to their awakening process.
Last year, and in 2012, I was writing about catching the train to 5D (with a short transfer in 4D). Looks like people are starting to arrive at the station, now.

Here's the newest email:

All you tell me, teach me, share with me, starts out as theory until I experience it. Even though it's theory, it resonates as true, so there isn't much conflict coming from ME, of course plenty from my EGO
Yesterday I was staring at the sea around twilight and clearly heard a voice say - "Everything's going to work out, get used to it." - something you have said and written about many times. 
However, yesterday I experienced it, and I could feel how vast the adjustment within me was. I could also feel the stillness of my ego and it's discomfort with having nothing to do. I felt the shifting happening. What a strange feeling not to struggle, like a fast train finally stopping, not knowing yet, and with no desire to know."

Here's the previous one:

"Hi Peter,
I hope you are well! I'm amazed at what I'm capable of doing with my-self when I meditate and shift the ego to "retired mode." Just wanted to let you know that the meditation re my menstrual cycle has kicked in! I'm experiencing it with "grace and ease" (without popping pain killers). I know it's because I'm more in touch with my physical body and truly believe that I'm the sole creator of my health status. Ah, feels so good! I was telling my boyfriend the other day, my life has gotten so much better since I stopped believing in the God above and started believing in the God within me. Life is good!
Thank you so much! I'm off to create some money!"


This is from a piece I wrote in January 2008 when Bobby Fischer, the disturbed chess genius, died. I then republished the piece a year later after the sudden and grotesque death of Michael Jackson, again, following the heroin overdose of Philip Seymour Hoffman, and now, once again, after the suicide of Robin Williams, just a few days ago.

Fischer, Michael Jackson, Hoffman and Williams (the latter two both Oscar-winning actors), were considered geniuses in their chosen craft, and yet, they were all most certainly depressed, in clinical terms. People tell me they find it confusing how someone so talented and successful could be so unhappy.

Here's my take on this phenomenon, revisited:

Bobby Fischer has died at the age of 64. America's only world chess champion and a true prodigy, Bobby brought chess into mainstream consciousness in America over three decades ago. He certainly inspired me in his famous match with Boris Spassky in the summer of 1972, right after I had graduated from high school. I watched every game on PBS, and then went on to start a chess club at Rider College in my freshman year. I once got to see Bobby work his magic, playing against 20 of Westchester County's best players simultaneously, winning all 20 games in about an hour. He even smiled wryly at one point when he recognized that one of the challengers was playing one of Fischer's own games against him!
As a budding young psychotherapist, I also knew that Bobby Fischer was probably a paranoid schizophrenic. That both saddened me and fascinated me. It saddened me because he became emotionaly too unstable to continue revolutionizing the game of chess. Instead he descended into madness and isolation over the years. It fascinated me because I wondered how one could be so innovative and brilliant (Fischer's IQ was purported to be 181), and yet also be insane. I pondered this question for many years, and often thought about Bobby Fischer when I did.
The conclusion I came to ultimately was that most people have at least a "window" open in their psyche to their highest self, no matter how pressing their other disturbances and conflicts might be. Each person comes into life with innate gifts to bear, some even monumentally so. From Mozart to Mickey Mantle, from Judy Garland to John Forbes Nash, we have plenty of examples of greatness co-existing with deep fatal flaws in the mind. In the lives of so many people I meet, in fact, I frequently see the same thing - areas of talent and light shining through the window of an otherwise "ordinary" life, constricted by the rigid belief systems and suppressed emotions we created in childhood and have not dismantled.
Is there a purpose for the existence of these windows? Yes. It is the soul's way of reminding us of who we truly are, of what we can and will become as we progress on our journey towards self-actualization. It is our inner inspiration to fulfillment. As Bobby Fischer inspired me and perhaps millions of others in the 1970's to explore the world of chess, our own flashes of creativity and brilliance can inspire us to do the selfwork necessary to explore our own inner world and advance our own evolution.
Thanks, Bobby, for the bright light that briefly shown through you.

And thank you all!

In addition to direct self-work and inner explorations, movies and televisions shows, along with music and books, all of which are our modern forms of storytelling, have shaped my life experience and perspective greatly in this lifetime. And among the most powerful for me in the storytelling area has been Robin Williams. His performances in The Dead Poets Society and Good Will Hunting have influenced me as a teacher and therapist more than many professionals and theorists in my field have. And What Dreams May Come is the closest, most accurate portrayal of spiritual existence that I have ever seen on the big screen.

Farewell, wounded healer. And thank you!

"How can you be afraid to feel? Isn't fear a feeling? If you're feeling fear, you're feeling one of the most negative emotions there is to feel. Everything else should be a piece of cake. Feel good, feel happy, feel healthy, feel abundant, feel creative, feel compassionate, feel knowledgeable, feel powerful."
