Seek And Be Hungry For New Knowledge

Sunday, February 22nd, 2009

Do you remember that first spark of hope you felt when you watched The Secret? I clearly remember the desire that filled my heart, knowing that – Yes, I can make my dreams come true – Finally!

But how many of you soon saw that hope dwindle into frustration? How many of you (and be honest now) started muttering things like:

  • “It seems to work for other people, but I just can’t get it right.”
  • “I’m frustrated that sometimes I can get it to work, but sometimes I can’t. What’s the trick?”
  • “Why am I having so much trouble?”
  • “I think the universe is against me.”
  • “I’m trying very, VERY hard but still nothing is happening!”

Timeshifting – How to Control The Speed of Time

Thursday, December 18th, 2008

Dr. Rechtschaffen’s book Timeshifting grew out of the workshops he leads on the creative use of time. Unlike time-management courses which teach people how to work efficiently at an ever-accelerating pace, Rechtschaffen’s basic premise is that it is crucial to learn how to “timeshift,” to move smoothly from fast to medium to slow and back again. Each speed has its proper place, he believes, but the rhythms of industrialized societies, including the United States, encourage us to live in “fast forward” virtually all the time. He asserts that we pay a heavy price for doing so.
