Topic: Letting Go to Receive
October 31, 2015


HANS:
Hi everyone. Today’s topic is “Letting Go to Receive.” I got quite a few emails from you this week about, “Hansie, I’ve identified my ‘stuck space’ what I need to let go of, and also what i don’t seem to be able to let go of. Even though I know in my heart it doesn’t serve me anymore, I’m just having a really hard time letting go.”

You’re getting fearful of letting go. It’s a big thing.

ALFRED:
It’s huge. Even from extremely educated people I have heard - well, it’s the devil I know, and what happens if the devil I don’t know is worse than the devil I know? It’s a very difficult situation to be in fear of what you don’t know. Letting go of what you do know, regardless how painful what you do know is.

HANS:
It’s that old blank page thing that I do with my clients. I say, “Here, I’ve just written your whole life would you rather have this page or,” and I turn it over to an empty page, “this page.” Seventy-five per cent of people choose the page that’s already written on. The gift you give yourself is when you say, “I’m letting this page go.”

So that’s what some of you are facing right now. Letting go of the page you identify with that doesn’t work anymore.

ALFRED:
Exactly. And one is control - what your brain understands - the complete opposite has to do with trust,
surrender, belief. Those are very intangible things. And that’s the way Spirit works. Belief and trust in the intangible.

HANS:
Yes. You’re saying to your Guides, you’re saying to Spirit, “I trust you, even though I may be fearful, I’m going to do it anyway because I know you will handle what is best for me.”

ALFRED:
And that’s what we are trying to get to in the letting go process. If you find that you are hesitant, then we want you to take a look at it quite simply. The hesitant aspect of you has to do with your human-ness. Relying on your human-ness in understanding what you do. The other aspect has to do with surrendering. Surrendering is the basis for every single spiritual teaching in the universe. Surrender. Let go of what is removing yourself from your human-ness. Unfortunately it’s a little difficult to have both. If you want to be spiritual but you want to hold onto things, that’s probably why you get stuck.

HANS:
It’s not, Alfred, that the God Force, the Spirit doesn’t love them. It’s just, when you won’t go past a place you know already is a dead zone, you give Spirit no space to help you.

ALFRED:
That’s exactly it. Spirit wants to see trust. They want to see that you are willing to work with Them - willing to be a partner with Spirit.

HANS:
Very important - be a partner with Spirit.

ALFRED:
It’s not that you say, “Well, I’ll let go of my relationship when I see another relationship is available.”

HANS:
That’s not trusting.

ALFRED:
Unfortunately, that’s not the way the universe works. It starts with trust and belief.

HANS:
When you ask Spirit for the experience like I taught you, you have to be willing to show Spirit that you’re willing to let go of what doesn’t work anymore. If you’re asking Spirit, “I would like a new relationship, but I’m going to hang on to my old one,” you’re saying to Spirit, “I don’t trust you. I don’t believe if I let go of this I’ll ever get anything else.” All of us have had friends like that. It isn’t true. When you say, “I’m going to let go of this because I know it’s no longer good for me, it’s not in my best interest.” It may have been then but it’s no longer now. You just say, “Please present me with the doors…” That’s when you really begin to move forward. It’s very difficult letting go of things we think benefit us when we know that they’re not.

ALFRED:
And that is where spiritual growth happens.

HANS:
That’s right.

ALFRED:
When you go out of your comfort zone and into a place of trusting. That is spiritual growth. And that leads us to our second topic. 

Why? Why do you need to let go? Why do you need to let go in order to get something?

HANS:
In the other room, I have a glass of iced tea. I have this iced tea and I change my mind and I only have one clean glass. I think I would like some juice instead of iced tea. What do I have to do with the iced tea? I have to pour it out. I have to rinse the glass out. Then I have to pour the juice. Such is spirituality in movement. You can’t have and get at the same time. You have to open your hand and let go of what you’re doing and then you can say what you’d like the experience of. That’s a key element. I’m willing to let go if I can see the other one first.

ALFRED:
That doesn’t leave Spirit any room to work with you. 

HANS:
No, it doesn’t.

ALFRED:
Spirit and you would be better off working from a blank slate. A painter starts with a blank canvas.

HANS:
A sculptor starts with a ball of clay.

ALFRED:
That’s a huge reason why, spiritually speaking, it’s better to let go, go into a void, a space of nothingness, a place of reflection and then wait to work with the other side in co-operation and trust. You’re creating a space where there’s nothing that’s going to be interfering if something comes in. It’s not just simply trusting that the other side will help you, it’s making sure there’s a space, a clear space without interference. Very similar to meditation. When you’re in meditation what do you want? You want to make sure there’s no interference. Whenever you’re working with the other side, you want a nice clean blank slate, as much as possible to work with the other side.

HANS:
That’s nicely put - as much as possible - sometimes it takes people some time longer. When I first met Alfred ten years ago, he was dealing with a very complicated family problem.

ALFRED:
That’s putting it mildly.

HANS:
Yes. It wrenched his soul. It wrenched his heart, to the point where he would do really stupid things. Not hurt anybody, but hurt himself. One day he said, “I don’t understand what you mean, let it go?” Let it go. It’s your perception of the matter that’s hurting you. Let it go. Don’t be involved anymore. Don’t write letters anymore. Don’t answer the phone. Let it all go. Because what has happened is that you’re caught up in the drama. The appearance of the drama. Now he teaches this. So when someone says to Alfred, “I don’t know how to let go.” He says, “Stop funding energy to it!” Which is what Spirit taught him.

ALFRED:
And energetically, cut your energetic ties to it. Stop thinking about it. Stop trying to figure it out. Stop asking why? Look at expectations you have. Expectations and judgments of family - they’re family! They’re supposed to be like this or that.

HANS:
That’s a big one.

ALFRED:
All that has to do with your human connection to it. So what we’re talking about here is with the understanding in working with the other side, there should be a clean slate. To do that you need to look at the ties that have energetic and emotional ties to whatever it is, especially family.

HANS:
So Alfred has learned that if he lets it go, it gets handled on its own. And that’s the key.

ALFRED:
That’s what happens when you surrender it, when you trust, all of a sudden you open yourself up to an army of supporters who want to help you.

HANS:
Yes.

ALFRED:
You have to give it to them. You have to release control. You have to tell them I trust you. I surrender it to you, for them to come into that space and work with you.

HANS:
I think it’s very important that people realize how much Spirit is actually there for them. They’re just waiting for you to make up your mind. Spirit won’t tell you what to do, or run your life. That’s your job. Their job is to provide the space after you ask for it.

So, from now on for everybody - Letting go is getting. Letting go is gaining. Letting go is freedom.

ALFRED:
Creating a blank space is a nice empty bucket, a nice clean glass.

HANS:
Why do people look at a blank space and think there’s something wrong? Because there’s nothing there?

ALFRED:
Because it’s the opposite of human. Human is all about getting, acquiring. We’re saying, “No. Surrendering, letting go creates a space for Spirit to come into your life. If you’re acquiring and controlling, there’s no space for Spirit to enter your life.”

HANS:
And folks, like with finances… Let’s say you get a little low in finances and that old devil fear starts to come in. If you say to yourself, “Oh, this is the harbinger.” This is the announcer of new money - because it’s true. You never stay down there. Ever. Haven’t you noticed you always recover? You always come back up. Always. It’s simply a time and a lesson in your life.

So letting go of the relationships, letting go of fear, of work issues, letting go of everything - is the beginning of your new beginning.

I think that will conclude the lesson for today.

"Fall Cleaning" - by Hans Christian King Spiritual Show Transcription

“Fall Cleaning” - by Hans Christian King 
Spiritual Radio Show Transcription
GUIDANCE FOR YOUR LIFE Radio Show
with Hans Christian King www.HansKing.com
and Alfred Ricci www.AlfredRicci.com
Topic: Fall Cleaning
October 24, 2015


HANS:
Hi Everyone. Today’s topic is “Fall Cleaning.” As many of you know who’ve been with the show for the last five years, my favorite season is fall. People say to me, “Why? It looks like everything’s dying!” That’s exactly why I love it so much. It’s the end of a time; and what is happening is all the old that doesn’t work anymore begins to… fade away. This is the time of year I ask you all to sit down and make a list of all the things you don’t want to participate in your life anymore. All the things that don’t work for you. Things you’re not willing to give energy to anymore.

Why do we do that? The same reason that trees shed all their leaves because new growth can’t grow where old growth is. So they have to drop their leaves, prepare to go into hibernation. Clean themselves up inside, drop the sap, and rest. And then as we get towards March and April, they begin to slowly resurrect themselves. You can do the same thing, but you don’t have to wait so long. This is the time of letting go. One of Alfred’s favorite topics is letting go.

ALFRED:
Yes, actually we have a little saying that has to do with: no two things can be in the same place at the same time.

We’ll pick an example, we get a lot of clients asking us about relationships - you’re in a relationship that’s not working, and you’re asking God - where’s my new relationship? And the most common answer is…

HANS:
...you have to let go of what you’re holding onto first.

ALFRED:
Spirit needs to see your intention, your desire, your trust. Trust, that if I let go of what I have, I trust the next stage is going to come. Hence the example of the tree letting go of its leaves - it trusts instinctively it’s going to get new leaves.

HANS:
It knows that. It’s internal. What we need to do is be more like the trees. When we make the list of the things we choose not to participate in anymore, we’re saying to God, I trust that you have another plan. I’m going to let go of what I’m holding onto now for dear life, in the knowledge that it doesn’t work for me anymore. In the knowledge, I’m going to clean myself up, I’m going to get ready for my new beginning. You see? So, in my world, letting go is gaining.

ALFRED:
Which is the opposite of what your mind tells you. It’s the time we start talking to you about mind chatter. What to look for in mind chatter when mind chatter tells you, “No, you can’t let go. What happens if you can’t get anything else and nothing else shows up?”

HANS:
Oh dear, what a painful life that could be. 

ALFRED:
So I don’t want to let go of what’s causing me to be miserable, because I might not have anything. So as soon as your mind chatter tells you I can’t let go of what I have because I might get something worse, or I might not get anything or anyone, you say, “At least I’ll be peaceful.”

HANS:
Yes. The tree goes into a peaceful time. We live here in Asheville, North Carolina, and we sit in the middle of the trees and we see baby trees coming up, we see the tops of older trees, but they’re all doing the same thing, no matter what the age of the tree is - they’re letting go. And that’s the key folks, trust and believe.

The tree never wonders if it will spring to life again come next year - never! It let’s go of it’s leaves; some of those leaves may have a fungus on them, and so the letting go cleans the tree up. When a bear goes in for hibernation it never wonders whether it’s going to wake up in the spring, it knows it. When we begin to let go of the things that don’t work in our lives any more, as Alfred mentioned, the mind chatter gets very active. What do you mean? You can’t let go of this? This is all you have! When you’re hanging onto a relationship that simply doesn’t work anymore, when you’re hanging on for dear life, are you hanging on because you love the person or are you hanging on because you think that’s all you got and will ever have?

The tree knows to let go of the leaves. You don’t see the tree trying to hold on through winter with it’s leaves on. We need to also believe that when we let go and we’re willing to move forward in the light, all of our dreams suddenly are made possible.

ALFRED:
And that brings us up to topic number two. What happens after you let go?

HANS:
If you’re in human form you often go though the “Oh my God, what have I done!”

ALFRED:
Mind chatter comes up again and says, “Get him back!”

HANS:
Folks, I cannot tell you how many times I’ll be in a reading with somebody and they’ll say, “Hans, do you think I can get him back?” And I will say these words, “Well what happened to all the pain of before?” 

“It’ll be different this time.”

No, it won’t. Let it go. Love the person you’re letting go, bless them, let them go, and that’s it. Know that Spirit will take them where they need to be and will open the doors because at the end of each show you hear me say - always remember, kids, God doesn’t love anyone more in this world than you - and God’s not loving that person less than God is loving you just because you have an opinion of what happened to the relationship. It’s only your opinion. That’s all it is.

ALFRED:
So after you let go, what’s in store? What happens then? That’s what we call the void. What’s the void do? It creates space. 

HANS:
It creates a vacuum. We all were taught in school that a vacuum cannot exist, something comes in to fill the void, the vacuum. Your job as spiritual beings in human form is to make the void good. Make it wonderful. Don’t make it a challenge. It’s peaceful. The void is a peaceful place.

I have a rocking chair out here on my front porch that looks directly at the trees and the forest. I go out there in the morning with my coffee and I sit down, and in that moment I become one with the trees. At that moment I see squirrels, woodpeckers, voles, chipmunks, we’ve got a mama bear now with four cubs, and I become part of all I see.

ALFRED:
So it’s in the void you become clear about what you want in your life. What you don’t want in your life. What you would like with your life. You can work on cleaning other areas of your life, making sure there’s a nice clean place for the next stage in your life.

HANS:
One of the things that Spirit teaches us, Alfred, is that we can’t create a masterpiece over a masterpiece. We have to be willing to take the masterpiece we have and go hang it on the wall and start from a blank, clean place. And that’s what the void is.

ALFRED:
That’s the way a painter loves to work. The way Spirit loves to work is when they come in, a blank space. When you’re learning to channel you need to be a blank space. When you go into mediation, you search for a blank space. You are happy when you are peaceful and there is a blank space in your life. So actually having space in your life is a positive; not just for spiritual growth, not just for letting go of the things that don’t serve you anymore, but because you’re making space for the next stage in your life - whether it’s a relationship, a job, or whatever else is going away - you’re making space for the next thing to come in.

HANS:
And it always comes in. So what you want to look forward to in the void is the nothingness. That’s the key. You have an opportunity in cleaning out the old. There is an opportunity to discover the self buried under all the minutia, all the stuff you’ve piled on top of your heart, piled on top of your spiritual being. You’ve just covered it up, covered it up. There comes a time when you can say, “Oh, there you are! I forgot you!” 

And so, you come in with nothing and you go out with nothing, but in the meantime, this quiet beautiful space of you exists outside of the mind - the mind chatter - so the fall is the time to begin the renewal process of our soul.

And that will conclude the lesson for today.

“Spirituality and Your Career” - by Hans Christian King Spiritual Show Transcription

“Spirituality and Your Career” - by Hans Christian King 
Spiritual Radio Show Transcription
GUIDANCE FOR YOUR LIFE Radio Show
with Hans Christian King www.HansKing.com
and Alfred Ricci www.AlfredRicci.com
Topic: Spirituality and Your Career
October 17, 2015


HANS:
Hi everybody. Today’s topic is “Spirituality and Your Career.” We get a lot of questions from folks about making a living, earning money, and doing something spiritual and following your Dharma, your path in life. What is your job search like when you are transitioning out of a job that earns you money into a job that earns you money and is spiritual? How do you do that? 

Guidance says, you begin the journey - and the problem we have Alfred, for ourselves, is that people want to transition and they look at me, or they look at you, and they look back and say, “Well how did they get there?”  It was a process. I always had it. Alfred is still working on it but it’s not that a bolt of lightening strikes you one day and it says,  “Now you’re in !” That’s not the way it happens. What you want to do is talk to Spirit and say, “I’m setting my intention to manifest my work with Spirit.” What They’re going to do when you do that is very slowly - and it is always slowly - it’s very rare that you wake up one morning and say - I want to be in service - and boom - the door opens and here comes the Angels and the Man and say, “Oh congratulations! You’re now in service.”

You start with the single most important thing - the intention. That’s the key.

ALFRED:
Absolutely. It’s starting the energy. This is the biggest transition that people need to understand. When working with the other side it all starts with creating the energy of something to be manifested by creating an intention. It is supported by trust, faith and belief in what you are asking the other side for is actually going to happen. That sends re-enforcement energy, re-enforcement vibrations, that the other side is actually going to follow through with that.

The other side basically answers your question immediately. However, as we know, on the physical side things take a little bit longer, which is why the faith, trust, and belief come in. But again, it all starts with changing your intention, changing your vibration, changing your approach as to how you go about looking for a job or a career or working with the other side.

HANS:
What Spirit says all the time is that you must operate from the awareness that it already is. Let’s say you’re working at a computer company and you’re doing data and all that, all very honorable, and you say, “You know Hans, I really want to be in service.” Okay, from that day forward, when you set your intention, you already are - then you must become the service by no longer wanting it. By accepting that it is so. “Today, I’m in service. I thank Spirit for the opportunity and for supporting me in my intention.” And then, as time goes by, it could be a month, it could be a year,  it could be a year and a half, but as time goes by, doors begin to open where previously there were no doors on the issue of service.

ALFRED:
And there’s a lot of choices to deal with. It’s not always crystal clear such as: I give up my job search to the other side. 

The other questions we got in were how do you choose between a paying job, whether you like it or don’t like it, or doing something entrepreneurial? Being in service on your own with your own business?

HANS:
One thing you want to do always, is be grateful for what you have now. That’s one of the keys is that when you’re grateful for where you’re at — see, you forget that you’re where you used to pray to be. So, you’re there now, now what the heck do you do? So, it’s really important that we understand in the moment, “I’m here because I’m building a platform for my tomorrows and this is important, this is a springboard from my yesterdays to my new beginnings.” So, where you are at the moment, no matter what job you may have - it is a foundation or a bridge between what was and where you’re going to be.

ALFRED:
So, how do you decide? How do you know if it’s a bridge? You feel it. You go to a peaceful place and you feel. “Is this where I’m supposed to go? Is this where the flow is? Is this where the other side is leading me?” One of the basic things we teach in Intuitive Development is what is a yes and no answer?

A yes answer is a calm, high, faint, supportive energy that says - yes, this is for you. Quite simply, you put up to the other side the question, “Is this where I’m supposed to go?” And you wait for a response. It usually comes in an energetic and vibrational form. If it is not for you and you’re not supposed to go in that direction, you’ll get a heavy, deep, sometimes stressful vibration. If you have that type of feeling, that is a no answer, but you have to ask one at a time.

We got a question in from somebody who asked if they should take a job that was just offered to them or should they continue working on building their own business.

HANS:
Take the job that’s being offered in the awareness it’s being offered to get them safely and financially secure into their new beginnings. So many people think, “Oh, I set my intention because Hansie told me to and I’m just going to leave my job and I’m going to go out and there I’ll be.” No. Spirit is aware of what it costs to live in this world. But when you say to Spirit, “I now set my intention to have the following experience, I now set my intention to be in service. I thank you for the position I have now, because I know it’s part of the transition to my new beginning…” 

Then you stop suffering what’s about to come up job-wise or what you already currently have.

ALFRED:
And again, a lot of times it can be confusing. Why is it that Spirit is interrupting my momentum? You don’t know if it’s a door behind a door. You don’t know if They’re going to be using that to leap-frog you. You don’t know what the other side is co-ordinating. Your job is to feel, to say, “Does this really feel good to me?”

HANS:
You know, a lot of times we talk about synchronicity. Spirit will open a door, and you’ll stand there scratching your head. “This is not what I asked for! This is not what I was hoping I was going to get.” What you don’t see, in the beginning, is the last domino follows the first domino. So the last domino couldn’t fall over without the first domino. Nor could the middle, nor could the second, nor could the fifteenth. So they’re all linked together.

ALFRED:
And that’s the way the other side works. They are constantly changing - life is constantly changing. Opportunities are constantly changing. Nothing is ever set in stone. That is why you have the term - go with the flow - because the energy may change. Somebody who was supposed to do something decided not to - your job is to feel the energy of the opportunity to make sure it’s not your mind playing games with you. To make sure your human-ness doesn’t get involved in the decision whether you should be an entrepreneur, stay at your current job, take a job offer that’s given to you. Follow the teachings the we have in the Intuitive Development Class in order to work with your Guidance, to hear them, okay? 

HANS:
The key to everything is belief. It is knowing. I talked with a lovely lady today and she wants so much to be in Spirit, but she keeps saying, “I want to, I want to,” instead of saying, “I am, and this is a place on my spiritual journey and it’s perfect in it’s moment and concept.” See what I’m saying, folks? It’s already perfect. Just the way it is, is perfect. And when you begin to operate out of the awareness that everything is perfect - yes, your human-ness is going to get involved - get used to it.

Get used to it, because remember what we always teach - we are just these little angels having a human experience. Therefore, we’re susceptible to human frailties.

I’m not going to sit here today and tell you there aren’t times in my life I wish things might have been different as far as my mind chatter works, but then I’ll tell you almost always, it turns out, “Oh, that is why I didn’t get that! Okay? That is what happened.”

ALFRED:
Someone asked - How do you get guidance from Spirit about what direction you’re supposed to go in?

HANS:
My suggestion is you listen to the Intuitive Development Class wherein we teach you about your biggest nemesis called mind chatter. It’s your mind chatter that’s talking to you. It’s mind chatter that interferes with what we are trying to accomplish. Remember that with Spirit everything simply is. That’s the key. Everything simply is. And when you get that, when you know that, when you hear that, everything comes to that place. Alright?

ALFRED:
So basically your job is to be in the moment, focused on the moment, being as spiritual as you possibly can…

HANS:
… with no expectations.

ALFRED:
With no expectations about what’s going to happen in the future. By being in the moment, it’s one of the practices of letting go of the mind chatter in order to be much more connected. If you start worrying about or thinking about, “What’s going to happen to me? What am I supposed to do?” Then you’re inviting ego, which separates you from that which you’re trying to accomplish. Instead, by simply being spiritual, being peaceful, happy, grateful, in the moment, you’re more able to determine where am I supposed to go, what am I supposed to do, in the moment.

HANS:
Remember always children, the old adage, that expectations are limitations. Everything that you wish to accomplish, if you can feel it in your heart, the Guidance will take you to the possibility for the opportunity. Always.

Okay. That concludes the lessons for today.

“Why Does Life Seem So Difficult?” - by Hans Christian King Spiritual Radio Show Transcription

“Why Does Life Seem So Difficult?” by Hans Christian King 
Spiritual Radio Show Transcription
GUIDANCE FOR YOUR LIFE Radio Show
with Hans Christian King www.HansKing.com
and Alfred Ricci www.AlfredRicci.com
Topic: Why Does Life Seem So Difficult
October 10, 2015



HANS:
Hi everyone! The topic for today is “Why Does Life Seem So Difficult?” Even though we’re having fun with you today, for many people life seems very difficult. I don’t know how to say it any clearer than this. It’s how we view what’s going on. There are situations that happen in our life that seem insurmountable. They seem like your life is drowning, like you’re being thrown to the wolves, but our human-ness continues to inform us of what is wrong. 

Now sometimes, for instance, a relationship… people have been together for awhile, maybe they’ve produced children, maybe they have really worked hard, and one day out of nowhere it goes - poof! Our immediate human-ness is to respond to that in such a way that we wonder what’s wrong. What happened? What if we found out that what happened was the energy that ran the relationship had run it’s time.

ALFRED:
Disconnect energy. That it was planned. And the other side is working with you to disconnect that which was planned.

HANS:
And you agreed to it because you set it up in the first place!

ALFRED:
It’s part of your life path.

HANS:
So what I’m saying to you is - even in the most difficult of moments, with every kind of scenario you can think, Spirit is there with you. Walking with you. Opening the doors in front of you. No matter how painful, when they close a door they open a window - you’ve heard that your whole life.

ALFRED:
I saw a quote about that today. Tragedies are actually opportunities in disguise. It depends how you look at it.

HANS:
Let’s go back to what we were talking about when we said the relationship went poof! All we can see in front of us is the pain of the moment. We want to run back into the history of the relationship. We want to rekindle it, we want to pull it forward into the new unknown. No, no, no. It’s over. Love each other. Be friends with each other. Let it go into the Light.

It’s very simple for me to sit here and say this to you, but that’s what Spirit expects. By the letting go of what wasn’t working anymore, you freed up your tomorrows, even though in the moment all you can see is blankness. It is blank. By letting go you have created a vacuum, and in the vacuum the new life comes.

ALFRED:
Working wth Spirit to let go of what doesn’t work anymore.

HANS:
Remember that old saying that says: one day at a time? That’s just what Spirit is saying to you. Just ask for the energy, kids, of one day at a time. And when you do that, you’re saying to Spirit, ”I believe, I trust you. I know that for all the pain I’m in at the moment, there is a rainbow at the end of this pain.”

ALFRED:
Then we get on to trust and surrendering. Surrendering that what is actually happening is part of your Dharma, part of your life path… is happening for a reason.

HANS:
You can’t get, if you don’t let go, children. You can’t continue to get and get. You have to let go in order to receive. When we’re in the middle of the pain it feels so real - you know that, Alfred.

ALFRED:
It does.

HANS:
I know that and all of you know. It looks real. It feels real. But it really isn’t. It’s our mind chatter at work.

ALFRED:
Yes, and whenever something feels stressful, painful, realize that is human-ness coming into the picture. Spiritually speaking, when you realize there’s human-ness - what’s your option? Surrender into it! Be peaceful with it. Let it go. Realize there’s a higher purpose. Go with the flow. Let go of the negative energy versus trying to control it. Where is it? I want it back in my life, and the other side is saying - no.

HANS:
There’s no more there. It’s over. There’s no more energy available, and the more you struggled after it, the more you keep trying to resurrect it, the more pain you put yourself in. Then you get mad and yell at God for not being on your side.

ALFRED:
You have two options here. You can focus on what isn’t working and get upset about it, or realize your glass is half full, realize and focus on what is working. If you focus on what isn’t working, you’re putting negative energy when the Universe is trying to help you versus being grateful for where you are, going back to being peaceful and letting this energy dissolve as it’s supposed to dissolve. Don’t put your energy on what isn’t working because if your focus, your attention is on what isn’t working — guess what is going to be attracted into your life? Spiritually speaking, if you put your energy on what isn’t working, that is the energy and the feeling and emotions you’re going to keep with you.

HANS:
They themselves are makers of themselves. We continue to draw to us our own consciousness.

ALFRED:
So when you have something you feel is being removed, taken away from you - spiritually speaking - put your energy, your focus, your attention on being peaceful, on what is working, your spiritual growth, working with your Guides. Go look at a flower. Go for a walk. Whatever it is to reconnect during this type of turmoil to take your energy away from that and your focus is on the positive.

HANS:
Exactly.

ALFRED:
How’s that for a short lesson? And now for our next topic which is - Being in the Void. Something was taken away from you, the Universe is saying, “That’s no longer part of your experience. We need to put you in the void for a little while.” All of a sudden there’s just nothing. Lack of a relationship, lack of a job, lack of money, lack of a car, lack of a partner, lack of friends…. So, lesson number two: when Spirit is removing something for you - your job is to focus on the good aspects of your life and connecting. What do you do when you’re in the void? When there is a lack of a relationship, lack of job, lack of money, and you’re wondering what’s going on here? What is somebody supposed to do during that time Hans?

HANS:
Be peaceful. Now folks, when you find yourself in the void, and you find more things going away from you than coming towards you - what do you do? What are your options? You make the void perfect at the moment. Now that’s really really tough to do. You bring back all the Hansie principles: What if there’s nothing wrong? What if I’m exactly where I need to be? What if my God loves me and sees where I am right now and is taking care of it? The key here, is in the void - do nothing.

I’m serious kids. Do nothing. Simply learn to be in that moment, because what is for you is already known by the Spirit. Stop the infernal praying. They already know. Okay? What is for you is automatically on the way.

So, don’t worry. You’re not going to be alone. Yes, there’s a person for you. I have rarely ever met anyone that did not have a soulmate on this side. There are instances, I had a lady today who said her children don’t speak to her because the father had poisoned their minds, and I pointed out to her - no, the children poisoned their own minds and they’ll get through it and come out the other side.

When children find themselves in divorce, for instance, they immediately need to blame someone. So, in the void, as you watch the things go away, know the children will return, because they will. Know there will be another relationship, because there will. And just have a quiet knowing, that in the void, in that moment - it’s perfect.

ALFRED:
So - two ways to handle the void. The first thing is to look at any aspect of human-ness, blame, understanding, stress, control, these are things to try to not do when you’re in the void. You can’t control, can’t completely understand your Dharma. You’re here on purpose not understanding your Dharma. If you’re trying to understand why things are being taken away from you, why this is not in your life, you’re going to drive yourself crazy. Drive yourself into human-ness and disconnect energy. 

The void is all about connecting to the nothingness, connecting to the peacefulness, surrendering to - ready - trusting that the other side has a plan.

HANS:
Because they do. You’re not here by accident.

ALFRED:
Exactly. So what you’re supposed to do in the void is: #1. Trust.

HANS:
There’s a tough one.

ALFRED:
Yes.

HANS:
I was watching this one over here, Mr. Alfred. Lord, didn’t he go through something last week, and I had to remind him that all he was going through was his own mind chatter. We don’t want to hear that. The truth of the matter is whatever lessons are being presented to you are the lessons you chose to learn.

ALFRED:
And the faster that you trust, this is part of your path, and you surrender into it, the more clearly you will see the lesson.

HANS:
That’s the key! When you surrender into it and don’t allow your mind chatter to believe that something’s wrong, suddenly there’s a lightness that comes in your heart and a little light goes on over your head like Felix the Cat in my day, bingo! I’m driving myself crazy. Hello? Nothing’s wrong. 

ALFRED:
That’s a good short lesson.

HANS:
I like that. This is one of the top five hardest lessons to learn - to believe and let go. That’s just really really tough.

And that will conclude our lesson for today.

Topic: Nothing is Wrong
October 3, 2015






HANS: 
Hi everyone, welcome.  Today’s topic is, “Nothing Is Wrong.” In our daily life we need to view things in certain perspectives in order for us to feel that everything is okay, we’re in good shape. We need for people to say certain things, we need to hear our boss say certain things, we need constantly to be reassured that everything’s okay, everything’s alright. Right now we’re going through this terrible loss again at a another school, this is the forty-second school that this has happened to, and so our minds right away are rushing to try to comprehend the madness that’s involved with why our children kill our children. We all know why. All you have to do is turn on television or go to the movies. That’s where they’re getting all this “violence is okay.”

Alfred and I sat the other night and we watched little blurbs from all the new TV shows. Every one of them was violence. Every one we looked at had violence in it - I mean murders - everyone of them. Then we wonder why our children - where this is coming from. We know the answers but we don’t want to bring them into ourself, so that we make ourself responsible for any of this. You see?

So, when I say to you, what makes you think anything is wrong, the mind has a place inside of it that it needs to understand why this is going on. So, what I’m saying to you is, when you go to work everyday, there’s a need you have for the boss, maybe the owner, to live up to some emotional expectation you may have. If that doesn’t happen in that time frame that you have set, something’s wrong. You have a need for your partner to say a certain thing or be a certain way, when they maybe would have said, “Do you need that?” Something’s wrong. And so learning, one of the hardest things I ever tried to teach our boy here, was that nothing was wrong. And he looked at me like I’d lost my mind.

ALFRED:
When we bring this topic up in class, which we do a lot of times, especially during the Intuitive Development Class, immediately people come up with child abuse, the Holocaust. They bring up the worst things that could have ever possibly be, and we have to sit there and say, “What makes you think anything is really wrong?” And there’s a lot of different ways for you to look at it, one of them being - is there really death? If the absolute worse things happen, mass suicides, mass killings, the school killings, the Holocaust, is there anything wrong? Did those people die? Or did the physical aspect just fade away and the soul just return to the other side to come back down for another incarnation later on. That’s what we try to describe to you, is by changing your perception of the way you look at things, instead of having a judgment of the way you’re looking at murder, the school shootings, change your perception to say - this is nothing more than a vehicle.

When you get into an accident, yes, you’re a little bit shaken up, but what do you do? You go get another car. The insurance company pays for it, or you get a rental car and you use that for a little while and then you get into another car and then off you go. Yes, there’s a little bit of emotion when you lose one car and pick up another one but is it really like that, Hans?

HANS:
Alfred, as humans, we forget one specific thing. The greatest gift that the Universe gives us, that God first gives us, you’ve heard me say this for years, is free will. It is man’s free will that is creating the disasters, the murders, the inhumanity to our fellow man, not feeding our hungry. It is our own choice, maybe not yours, but somebody else’s. It’s a bunch of free will choices that are hurting the world.

We now, this beautiful country of ours, with our beautiful people, have now become the most violent nation in the western world. I saw on television today that over the last ten years, three hundred and eighty-three Americans have been killed by terrorists overseas. That’s terrible. But three hundred thousand have been killed inside the United States, by our own people who are acting like terrorists.

I just saw a lady and her husband in Tokyo and their daughter wanted to go to Columbia University in New York, and they didn’t want her to go, they said, "No.It’s too violent there, you don’t want to go there, you’ll get hurt." The daughter wanted to go, to be with her friends, and anyway she went and on her first day she was shot dead in the street. Is that a coincidence? Is that something that was supposed to happen? No. So when we say to you, what makes you think anything is wrong? You’re not reacting to a global situation, you’re reacting to a human situation. The human situation in our country has grown more and more angry, more and more fearful, and so out of that anger and out of that fear - why didn’t God stop World War I, and World War II, and the Korean War, and the Vietnamese War? God had nothing to do with those wars. Nothing.

ALFRED:
And that’s exactly it. If you try to look at the situation from a human perspective, if you try to understand it, if you try to rationalize it – yes, you’re going to get frustrated, there’s going to be blame, there’s going to be stress, there’s going to be anger, but for those of a spiritual perspective, there is the law of free will, and that is the fundamental foundation of incarnation on this planet  - is that this planet allows for all experiences, all choices. You can choose to be happy. You can choose to be kind. You can choose to be mean. Now, could there ever be possibly be something good that comes out of violence, mass murder - yes. Is there something positive that could come out of poverty? Yes. What? An uprising of enlightenment, good, sharing, that there are people, for example Britain and the UK rose up against the evil that happened in World War II, there was an uprising of good. With poverty there is an uprising of super billionaires who are now funding money to end poverty.

There is the possibility to interact and experience anything you want on this earth and that is by design by the Creator that everyone has free will to experience whatever they want, however they want… and everyone knows that before they come here.

HANS:
Absolutely. One of the things They say to us on our way in is, "Remember you have free will over everything. Yes, you have a dharma that speaks to learning this particular thing. Be nice to each other, be kind." Instead, when we come in right away our minds are filled with all the fears of our parents, all the fears of society. We see things on television - I saw the other day that on average, a child sees a little more than fifty-eight murders a week. Every week. On the television - with a handgun. Fifty-eight. That’s appalling. We now have a hand gun for every man, woman and child in the United States of America. No nation on earth has that many firearms.

When I was a young man, you went to the police station and you got a gun permit. Then, when you got your permit, you went to the gun place and you bought the gun and you registered the gun. Not anymore. So, when we start getting upset about our sense of the lack of free will, which is what we all feel. We feel helpless. The reason we feel helpless is because we don’t do anything to change it. We keep succumbing.

ALFRED:
Exactly. And that is the first lesson we are telling you about. You can fall into the fear, you can fall into why is this happening? You can get upset, or you can say, “I dedicate my life, I dedicate part of my time to being peaceful,” and go within being peaceful and realize that nothing can affect
who you are. You always have the choice to be happy. Second, there was the possibility of finally the people having a greater say than the gun lobby. There is finally a possibility that the word of the people is going to overcome the NRA. That is the good that can possibly come from this.

HANS:
The other side on the gun issue says, oh the second amendment - nobody is talking about taking your guns away. That is never going to happen in this country. It is part of our Constitution. What we are talking about is being responsible for the guns we sell people. That’s what we’re talking about. If the other half of the country rose up and said in a strong and forceful voice, “No. You cannot do this anymore. Let’s open a dialogue.” If that force was as loud as the force on the right that has risen up - millions and millions of dollars that have been spent to keep gun laws the way they are - then you would see change. The free will of people, but until you take a stand, until you say no I am not willing to take this anymore.

Until you change your perception and realize, “Oh, there is nothing wrong here. I’m just not acting on it.” We have tremendous laws on guns in this country, but none of them are used.

So what I want you to do is to use what I’m talking about today in several ways. How are you viewing your life? How are you viewing the conditions of your life? Alfred, I talked to a lady a couple of days ago, and she said she had the most miserable life she ever could have imagined. She said her life turned out exactly as she thought it was. She said, “I’m miserable, nobody loves me, I have a terrible job, I hardly have any money in the bank, nobody wants to be my friend.” I said, “When did you start doing this to yourself?” She went totally crazy on the phone. Totally crazy! “Why am I talking to you?” I said, “Because you need to put in a new perspective, that’s why.” She believed that everything was wrong. She became a victim of that, and she started to look at when the next shoe’s going to drop, when’s the next bad thing going to happen? Can any of you relate to that? 

ALFRED:
Absolutely. And that leads up to our second topic for today, which has to do with looking at nothing is wrong by changing your perception and changing your judgment of the way that things are. What makes you think you have the ability to understand, to judge, to have an opinion of the way things are, to judge universal law, to judge God for allowing these things to happen?

HANS:
God didn’t do that to you.

ALFRED:
No. But imagine if by design, God allowed for all experiences. That we knew about World War I, World War II. We knew about the Crusades, we knew about the British coming over and taking over America, we knew about the Spanish taking over South America, before you incarnated and you said, “That’s okay, I’m going to come down there.” It was a choice, of course you don’t remember this.

HANS:
The greatest gift God gives us always, is free will. Nothing is more important.

ALFRED:
And to look at what is happening through that perception, to say, “No - I knew in advance that this was the type of world that I was going to come down into.” Instead of having a judgment of what is wrong, and judging; having the opinion that something’s wrong - look at it the way you did when you decided to come down which is: I have the judgment that I want to live my life in this incarnation and look at the good I can do for myself, look at the good I can do for my soul, look at the possibilities of being of service, because there are so many opportunities to be of service.

HANS:
Go back even further than that. As mankind has evolved, God never produced anything called war. Great Spirit never produced anything called murder. Never produced anything called starvation. Mankind did that, and God always gets blamed if something goes wrong. And gets the credit when something goes right. We as a nation of people, are slowly imploding. Our current system is imploding. We are no longer even governable. We are the laughing stock of the western world. Travel overseas and see what they think about the craziness. Donald Trump for president?! Really? That’s the best we can come up with?

We need to sit back, all of us, in our personal life and say, “I choose no longer perceive my life as a loss.” Remember my friend Alexandra I’ve told you about all these years - whenever anything would go awry in her life, her first statement out of her lips was, “I wonder what’s in this for me today, what can I learn from this today?”

ALFRED:
And that’s what we mean about looking at your judgment, looking at your perception of the situation, of the news, of what’s going on. What is there for you? Is it - oh look at this world that I live in, or is it - look there’s a lot of opportunities to serve. Is it - oh I blame God for this or no - there’s just some lost souls out there and I choose to be a soul that’s of service to others. I choose to be a soul that is happy. What is your perception, what is your opinion, your judgment, the way you view what is going on in the world and your role in the world?

HANS:
Exactly. You can have the peace in your life at any time by allowing your perception to shift that there is peace. You can literally make a decision today that says my life is of value, I don’t particularly care the way it’s going right now, but I set that in motion. I’m not a victim of my circumstances any longer. I choose to know there’s nothing wrong, and that all I’m asking Spirit for is to help me change my intention. Because out of intention comes clarity. Always.

Did we get it?

ALFRED:
Yes. That was a tough subject.

HANS:
It is a tough subject because, it is inbred in us through society, good and evil, light and dark, right and wrong, poor and rich, always this dichotomy of perceptual truth. Truth is, I am. Truth is, nothing is wrong.

I had a dear friend Rita, who used to say to her students, “Over your head every day Spirit provides a tremendous amount of cookie dough. Just floating in the clouds, the cookie dough. Every day God gives you all the cookie cutters you could possibly use for your own imagination and your own heart, and it’s up to you to find one you think looks good and bring it down and put it on the tray and Spirit will bake that cookie for you.” Because she believed. Belief is the oven of joy.

ALFRED:
Those are the two different ways you can look at life. You can look at your life - look at all the things that are bad around me or you can follow the wisdom of Mahatma Gandhi that says be the change you wish to see in the world.

HANS:
Change your internal mechanism. Don’t say, “I want to buy a house in Acapulco,” say, “I’m going to buy a house in Acapulco.” Don’t say, “Gee I wish I could learn to fly,” say, “Well I’m already a pilot I just need my license.” Move yourself out of your minds perception that there’s something blocking you, that there’s something wrong, move it out. I woke up today, my feet hit the ground. I have choices. I can choose to be happy, or I can choose to be miserable. Mind chatter will immediately go back to your family or your problems or you history Alfred, and start pulling that junk up once again as if any of it is real! In all those memories that you have of your younger days - they’re gone. The reality of it is nobody gives a darn, nobody knows the pain that you’re in, nobody cares that you’re in the pain. They’ll say, “Get over yourself.” Everything you want is in front of you. That’s just a memory. Would you run a race with a ten foot ball put to your foot? No. Get rid of the ball. it’s called perception.

Alrighty Alfred, I think that will conclude the lesson for today.

Topic: Seeing Past the Illusion
September 26, 2015


HANS:
Hi everyone. Welcome on this beautiful day, and it is truly a beautiful day today. Today’s topic is “Seeing Past the Illusion.” I want to talk a little bit about something that all of us have been dealing with for a long time. One of the lessons that my Guidance has always taught me was seeing past the illusion, that we have a tendency in our life to become what we need to see. Isn’t that strange? We become what we need to see. Well, the old adage is, “You see what you look for, you know.” Now, most people don’t realize that everything that’s going in their life and around their life is either their illusion or somebody else’s illusion. Someone once said, does the tree in the forest make a sound when it falls if no one’s there to hear it? That’s kind of what I’m trying to get at today. Our mind is busy trying to create what it hopes is the life it can be happy with, and it puts a great deal of energy into trying to get this job, trying to get this to work, trying to get that to work, what’s going on with this, what’s going on with that, and it all is a very large illusion. Now, you can learn to play with the illusion... however, if you believe the illusion is real, then you basically lost the game.

ALFRED:
Let me try to translate this, Hans. It’s like Disneyland is real and we try to say, "No, it’s Disneyland. You can go there and go have fun, go on the rides, don’t take yourself too seriously. Please don’t cut any lines or bump anybody."

HANS:
You mean like you do.

ALFRED:
I don’t so that anymore.

HANS:
You used to.

ALFRED:
So don’t cut the lines, be nice, be polite to other people in line, get on the ride, have fun, but eventually you’re going to leave Disneyland.

HANS:
Exactly.

ALFRED:
Is that a good analogy?

HANS:
It’s very good. I’m proud of you.

ALFRED:
Some people think Disneyland is real.

HANS:
Yes. You can see that little children would like to believe Disneyland is real.

ALFRED:
I always wanted to fly. I didn’t understand why I couldn’t fly.

HANS:
You don’t have feathers.

ALFRED:
But why? It just doesn’t make any sense.

HANS:
Because different things evolve to do different things.

ALFRED:
Is that my illusion?

HANS:
It may be your illusion, because you get on airplanes and fly across the country all the time and never think anything about that - that’s flying.

ALFRED:
But by myself. Why do I need an airplane?

HANS:
Take that up with God.

ALFRED:
I’ll have to ask when I get to the other side. So anyway, the illusion is believing that what you’re going through, whatever it is, is reality.

HANS:
I learned a long time ago, my friends, to set your intention and hold it. And you’ve heard me throughout the years talk about setting your intentions. I had a great conversation with some wonderful people last night about setting your intentions and holding it. That’s where the power comes from in your life. Unfortunately, people tend to set their intention and then lose the power of it, and then wonder why it doesn’t show up. So, what I’m trying to say to all of you is there is an opportunity in your life to try something new, and that is set your intention and hold it. Don’t second guess it, don’t wonder it, don’t question it, set your intention and everything then comes to be. You see?

ALFRED:
What’s the purpose of having an intention in Disneyland?

HANS:
Joy.

ALFRED:
There we go! The experience of experiencing life as a human.

HANS:
It brings us to a more childlike state. And so going to Disneyland, if you pretend there are no crowds. That’s what I always did. I pretended there were no crowds and therefore I never saw any crowds.

ALFRED:
It’s like driving in traffic in Los Angeles. You can let it upset you or you….

HANS:
As you know, Alfred, for over twenty years I commuted from Ft. Lauderdale to Dadeland, south of Miami, everyday, five days a week, back and forth. I never saw the traffic. I saw the clouds, the thunder, the lightening. I saw the downtown buildings that blinked all their different colors, but I didn’t see the traffic. Therefore, I never suffered the traffic. Get it?

ALFRED:
And the other thing is if somebody does decide to cut you off, instead of getting mad, you can bless them.

HANS:
I do.

ALFRED:
Say, “Please make it home safely without killing yourself or anybody else.”

HANS:
Exactly.

ALFRED:
So it’s how do you look at the experience of this incarnation is what we’re getting at. Not only how do you look at it, but how can you have fun? Find joy?

HANS:
When you see past the illusion, you understand that all that’s happening in your life is what you created. People always think life is what happens to them. No, no, no. You set your intention, you put policy in place, and there is a reaction to the policy which comes back to you, but if your original intention is to find joy and peace, learn to look past the illusion.

ALFRED
Because if you think that the illusion is real, you would actually get upset.

HANS:
Yes.

ALFRED:
And the truth is that there is really nothing to get upset about.

HANS:
You’ve heard me now for five years on this show talk to you about, “They themselves are makers of themselves” by Dr. James Allen. Hear it again, “They themselves are makers of themselves.” In all my sixty years of being in service, it is the single hardest thing I have ever tried to teach anyone. 

ALFRED:
I always like to quote the Dalai Lama, because a lot of people, especially our students have said,"Well, there’s lots of stuff that you should be getting upset about." What we like to say is there is a difference between how you hold yourself and injustice in the world. For example, when the Dalai Lama was interviewed recently the interviewer asked, “Well aren’t you upset about what China has done to Tibet?” And the Dalai Lama said, “No.” And the interviewer got very obstinate and said, “How can you not be upset? They’ve invaded your country, they’ve exiled you.” And the Dalai Lama says, “I choose to be happy.” And the poor interviewer could not understand so the Dalai Lama elaborated and said, “Because there is injustice in the world, does not mean it should upset you. I choose to be happy. And as a happy and more peaceful person, then I am more able to deal with the injustice and be a better politician, but I refuse to let that upset me.” Do you see the difference between the two?

HANS:
So when you realize that you are the makers of yourselves, you realize that all that is going on is operating out of your own consciousness. And when you realize it’s all operating out of your own consciousness, you can say, “I choose to see past this illusion and I’m going to create a new one.” So you can keep changing the illusion. For instance, I want to talk to you about the word abundance. We all have an idea what abundance looks for each one of us, but the way I look at abundance is free will and choice and just knowing that you can re-organize your life at any time. That you can train yourself to be peaceful and loving and quiet and kind and compassionate. That’s abundance. Knowing that you are separating yourself from all the craziness that’s going on in the world. That’s abundance. When the Pope came to the country the other day, I was astounded by the volumes of people surrounding him everywhere he went. Hundreds of thousands of people - why? Because he represented peace. He represented compassion, caring. He looked at the injustice, the inequalities and incomes, how that affected the poorest of us. How climate change affected the poorest of us. Now, I’m not a Catholic, but you don’t have to be a Catholic to have those ideals. And each and every one of you can see past the illusion. And that’s the key - to see past the illusion, the illusion that says this is the way it is, this is the way it’s always been, this is the way it’s always going to be. That, people, is not true. And you can remove yourself from the old illusions that you have created for yourself and bring a whole new sense of reality to you. You know about that, Alfred.

ALFRED:
Now, we may be throwing some of you for a loop to say, wait a minute, what does it have to do with changing the world? And we present you with a question and it is: What is the only thing or the only person in the entire universe that you can change? Yourself. You do not have the ability to change anyone else, or anything else, besides you! Yes, you can grab ahold of something, you can do something, but the way spirituality works is you first follow Mahatma Gandhi’s teachings and go within. The rest of the world does not need change for you to be happy. The rest of the world does not need to change or be different for you to find joy. It is your perception of the illusion that determines the amount of joy and peace and happiness in your life. It is first from within that you find joy and happiness. Yes, you may decide to be of service in a specific way, to help in a specific way, absolutely fine, but what we try to emphasize is to first see past the illusion to ensure you come from a peaceful place, you come from a happy place, a joyful place - and then go out and be of service.

HANS:
And you know, folks, what we find difficult to believe when we are in the middle of a mind chatter bombardment from ourselves, is we don’t remember that this isn’t true. We believe that because it’s here and we’re operating in it, therefore it must be real. The truth of the matter is, like the old Buddhist monk said to me once, “Young man, what makes you think that anything is wrong?” Then I gave him the litany and answers to why it was and he said, “No, no, son, that’s your perception of the moment. That doesn’t mean that anything is wrong. There is nothing wrong, it’s only how you perceive it.”

ALFRED:
Changing your perception is not trying to understand. If you try to understand the way the world is, you will drive yourself nuts and bring yourself into human-ness. We’re not saying that. Instead, we’re saying - let go, try to understand there’s a greater plan. There’s so many things that are so far beyond your understanding. Because if you let yourself get upset and you think you understand the way things are and you think you understand the injustice, notice all the understandings and aggravations that are happening because you’re dragging yourself into human-ness. Instead, as the Buddhist monk told Hans, what makes you think anything is truly wrong? For example if you see a poor person - do you have the judgment that someone is wrong? Well, how do you know if that person for example had a prior life where he was really rich and he treated poor people badly, and he decided to come back as a poor person to teach himself a lesson what its like to live as a poor person. And that person’s life no matter what, he always had enough money, had a roof over his head, but he was poor. Is there anything wrong? Or is it quite simply an experience he wished to participate in. So you have two choices when you are looking at the illusion to try to understand the way things are, or as we’re recommending as #one, stop trying to understand the illusion and just be happy. And yes, if you wish to be of service, perfectly fine. If you wish to feed the poor, clothe the poor, donate, volunteer your time, perfectly fine. But what is missing? Judgment. I have a judgment. I’m trying to understand why the world is bad, why things are wrong, that I have a judgment that things are wrong. Instead, you take the spiritual approach, as Hans was guided so long ago by the Buddhist monk, “What makes you think that anything is wrong?”

HANS:
It’s our mind that portrays us as a victim. It’s our mind that portrays us as poor. It’s our mind that portrays us as not having any hope. The mind produces all of this junk, then has the audacity to try to prove it’s true by calling up things from our history that show, “Oh here, I’m back in the same rut.” The fact, for instance, that everyone is listening to the show today, the fact of it, is a miracle in and of itself. Twenty years ago, folks, we couldn’t have done this show, it wouldn’t have been possible. Twenty years ago, nobody knew what an email was going to be. So we’ve advanced enormously, and are so blessed to have computers that can show us. Right now I’m looking at the flowers in my rose garden, and thinking how beautiful they are, and now some orchids that I have, and I’m thinking - wow, we are so lucky to be able to see these things. And therefore, I go to the place that says, “What if there is nothing wrong?”

ALFRED:
So what we’re trying to say is, it’s not that there is something wrong or something right, those are judgments, and in general spiritual principles try not to have a judgment – it’s the way you go about life. It’s... do you find your purpose by trying to fix things, or do you go about life by saying, "No - all of this is an illusion. There’s no way possible I could ever understand everything that’s going on. I choose to be happy. And oh, by the way, once I’m finally happy I decide to go out and be of service." Isn’t that just a lot more relaxing?

HANS:
I think so. You know, what we’re trying to give you is a sense of peace and hope. I’m looking at a picture of the Buddha’s face right now and how the Buddha talked about compassion, and it talked about how there is nothing wrong. It’s our perception of what’s going on in our life, and when we fully understand that there is nothing wrong, we can breathe a sigh of relief in knowing that the Spirit loves us so. We’re moving through this world to learn some lessons we chose to learn. Nobody made us come here, nobody made us be here. We’re here by our own design, and knowing this, opens us to all the wonderful possibilities for our life, but, again, you have to be able to see past the illusion of your life.

ALFRED:
And that’s where it all starts. Do you continuously allow yourself to get upset, aggravated, bringing negative energy into your being, because you think you understand the way things are and the way things should be (which is very human), or do you surrender into things that they just are? I am. It is. And start from within. These are polar opposites that we’re trying to tell you here. One way, the first way, is very aggravating and human, and the second way is very peaceful and internal, and calming. And if you view the illusion as something that is not meant to be understood, you’re supposed to work on yourself first and then once you work on yourself, then go and be of service without judgment, without expectation. To say, “Where should I serve? What do I want to experience?” Notice the lack of stress, notice the lack of negativity, notice the lack of aggravation, the lack of human-ness. That’s what we’re trying to tell you to let go of. By letting go of the illusion, the need to understand the illusion, the need to change the illusion, manipulate the the illusion, to be of service, and we’re saying, no, no you don’t. That’s not the path forward that God has put in front of us. The path is to let go of the illusion, to let go of the expectations and judgements, trying to understand the illusion, and to be peaceful and to be happy, and, sure, then go and be of service.

HANS:
Gandhi once said “Be the change you want to see.”

ALFRED:
Yes, it starts from within and if there ever was anybody who made some serious changes in the world it’s Mahatma.

HANS:
Mahatma brought down the British Empire with an intention to free his people. He never fired a shot. He never went to war.

ALFRED:
So we’re trying to tell you this stuff works.

HANS:
It really does. And the more you set yourself free from your own internal mechanism of thinking and perception, the more that comes to you.

ALFRED:
We actually agree on this one Hans.

HANS:
We do. We usually agree on most things. You usually see it my way. I couldn’t pass that up! We so enjoy doing this show. We so enjoy being with you and getting the beautiful comments we do, like after last weeks show. What you really need to hear folks is, “Yes you can, and yes I am.” When you finally hear that, “Oh, I’m not my thinking. I’m not in pain. I’m in joy!” Find a flower. Find a cloud, find a bird, find a bug, and just ask yourself - do these creatures, these living things, worry? Or do they simply show up? Everyday. For their life. Which is what you should be doing. People have a tendency to actually believe their own thinking, so what I’m trying to help you to understand is that you don’t have to believe your thinking, you have to believe the joy of who you are. Spirit already knows where you need to be. They already know what’s important for your life cycle. Tell Them what you would like the experience of, and simply know it. Be in joy. I’m going to make this up, say a family member calls and upsets you terribly, because another family member hasn’t shown up to their expectations they want a dialogue with you and say, “No.”

ALFRED:
If that sounds familiar, family issues, you probably are an old soul.

HANS:
Say to the person, “I hear you but I choose not to allow you to upset me today. This is not my problem.” If your boss chews you out at work and you have to say - yes sir, yes ma’am, turn to your internal self and say - this has nothing to do with me. I chose not to be a part of this. This is somebody else’s opinion. It’s nothing more and nothing less, and get on with your life. Don’t judge yourself by the conditions of your life, don’t judge yourself by the people in your life. There will always be people who are vexations to the soul. Always. Your job is to stay away from them. And I don’t care how close they may be to you, I don’t care who they are, there are times when you need to let go of people who simply don’t measure up to your peace.

ALFRED:
Again, we go back to the saying - who is only person, what is the only thing in the world you can control? Yourself.

HANS:
And sometimes folks, illness may come to visit. Remember, it’s come to visit the body. Give the illness to the Spirit and say, “I’m available for pure health and pure wellness.” Remember you have that power. 

Alrighty, Alfred, I think that will conclude the lesson for today.
