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.

Topic: Electronic Device Addiction
September 19, 2015




HANS:
Hi Everybody. Today’s topic is “Electronic Device Addiction.” I want to talk a little bit today, if I might, a little more about gadgets. We’ve been getting an awful lot of emails from people saying - a fair warning to everyone - when you’re using, I call them, the iPhone, but any subsequent product of that nature, when you’re continuing to use those on a daily basis, you begin to fracture the electromagnetic energy that you were born with. The vibrational field of the phone literally distracts you and pulls you more into your human-ness and away from the spirit of who you are.

ALFRED:
If I may translate… You get dragged into the dark side.

HANS:
Literally. I know people who simply go from one electronic device to the next, to the next, to the next, throughout their entire day. They can’t exist without having some electronic impulse into their consciousness.

ALFRED:
When does this become a problem? It becomes a problem when you substitute social life, social interaction with electronic interaction.

HANS:
I think that’s true, but I want to go to another place. I think it becomes a problem when you have to. Or you begin to feel out of sorts, if you don’t.

ALFRED:
Yes.

HANS:
Then you have like, people who drink too much... it does become a dependency. I have a client that came to my office the other day, everybody, and I’ve known her for a very long time and she gotten hooked on her iPhone, and every five minutes she pulled her iPhone out of her purse and looked to see if she got a message. And I finally had to stop the appointment and say, “Judy, honey, you’re distracting me.” She said, “I know, but I think I heard a vibration from the phone. It could be important.” Folks, how did we live when we actually had pay phones? The other day Alfred and I were actually somewhere...

ALFRED:
...at the airport.

HANS:
At the airport, where there was a bank of pay phones on the wall and we both looked at the pay phones and he looked at me and I looked at him and we went, "Wow!"

ALFRED:
So what is the issue with that spiritually speaking, where is the lesson?

HANS:
The lesson is it’s another addiction to keep you away from who you actually are.

ALFRED:
Okay, so that’s the first lesson.

HANS:
So it’s meant to distract you. Everything on television, everything on the radio, now on your computer, now at the gas station. I went to the gas station the other day to fill up my car and it wouldn’t give me the gas until I read an ad in the little box on the screen, and I had to answer the ad "yes or no" before it would give me the gas - which I’d already paid for.

ALFRED:
You all know what we think of media, mass media in general.

HANS:
And so we’re being led, like a bunch of lemmings, into using these gadgets that record our every move. We now know when people wake up, when they go to bed, what market they shop at, what bank they go to, and I noticed there has been a little bit of rebellion Alfred, from some the younger people now who are getting rid of their iPhones and who are coming off the Internet.


ALFRED:
Well that’s good actually, because the second lesson that we want to introduce to you is being in the now... is those phones really say something that could change my life, a message, something could come to me, which is why you’re constantly checking it, constantly using the Internet to search for something, instead of being in the moment. Instead of being social, instead of interacting with the person who’s in front of you, instead of paying full attention to where you are, who you’re with and what you’re doing. Instead, you’re looking to the other to the other side of the fence to see if the grass greener, did the green grass come in my home.

HANS:
While I was away from my phone did my life change and I don’t know it? Now back in my day folks, there was something called a pay phone, and if you needed to phone home you put a dime in and you dialed your house to see if everything was okay. In my day, we gathered around the TV to watch a particular program and then everybody got to comment on the program afterwards. It sounds like I’m reacting like an old guy.

ALFRED:
No, no, it’s a huge thing, especially with families. That’s one of the things my friend Dan pointed out, is that every single time he goes out in Los Angeles and sees a family, each member of the family pulls out their phone and doesn’t talk to one another. And Hans and I have seen this, also. It’s not just that we are worried about you being in the now, losing social skills, we’re also worried about family interaction... is because parents think an iPhone or an iPad is a good babysitter, but what are they giving up? They are giving up interaction with each other, communicating with each other, sharing with each other.

HANS:
The other night we went to this little barbeque place, and there was a very nice young couple who had two little daughters, beautiful children. And the minute they sat down, before they ordered, they said, “Let’s see Grandma. Let’s see if she’s sent a message. Let’s go see where were going to go tomorrow.” And they were indoctrinating their children, both the husband and the wife, into how important the cell phone really was.
Folks what we are losing is our ability to talk to each other. It’s so important. We now don’t sit down and write a card. Alfred calls it snail mail. I call it the polite way and the proper way to send notices. We used to send letters, we used to send cards, birthday cards. Now everything is quick, simple - here pay for it on the Internet, boom off it goes, you no longer have any responsibility. I want all of you to look at that and see if maybe you’ve become guilty of some of that.

ALFRED:
So just be aware of your personal energy. If you personal energy is frantic, scattered, fractured and you continue to go down the path of looking on the Internet, looking on your phone for whatever it is, but if this frantic energy doesn’t go away, then considering where you’re looking for what you need, it’s probably the wrong place. Probably less of your cell phone would be better to calm you down, to straighten out your energy. More social interaction, family interaction, personal socialization.

HANS:
You know I even know a client who, when they go to watch a movie with their family, actually has an iPad that they play a game on at the very same time they’re supposed to be watching a movie and think nothing of it. What I’m saying to everyone is - why not try to find a wonderful calm place in your life, where you take the cell phones, the iPads, any of the electronic devices, turn them off and put them in a drawer? I can hear everyone right now saying, “Oh what if somebody calls?” Well, what if? We survived without these devices for thousands of years. Maybe it’s time to sit down with your partner, your family, your friends, just to be there. The new thing I saw recently is that what is considered to be proper etiquette now is when someone comes into your house, they have to hand you their cellphone and turn it off and it’s put in the drawer by the front door and when you leave you’re given it back. Alfred, I think that’s a wonderful idea, don’t you?

ALFRED:
Creating boundaries. I think is a good lesson to consider is - what are your boundaries for your cell phone, for your gadgets? For example, I won’t put my work email on my iPhone. I won’t. I don’t care. You have to draw some boundaries when you are visiting people. Do you put your phone off? Do you take it off? Do you focus on the person that you’re focusing on - do you have down time? Or are you succumbing to the pressures of work or the pressures of twitter.

HANS:
You know, Alfred, you and I travel, and have you noticed that the minute the plane lands, the first thing everybody does is race for their iPhone? Turn their phones on?

ALFRED:
So what we’re trying to tell you in this lesson is: look at creating boundaries. This goes back to one of our basic basic lessons that we’ve been talking about is create space for nothing.

HANS:
Yes. It’s one of the first things I taught you.

ALFRED:
That was a hard lesson. Oh, my God.

HANS:
He fought me on that one. He said, “What do you mean nothing?” He had been taught that if you had nothing in your mind you were failing.

ALFRED:
There was something you could be doing.

HANS:
Something you could be doing.

ALFRED:
What does that sound like? Human-ness!

HANS:
This morning I went outside and I sat on a chair and I looked at the sunrise, and there were all these little birds around. We had gotten some bread and I was feeding these little birds and they were all coming up on the table. I was just talking to these birds and I realized that in that moment there was no place on earth that I would rather be. I was where I wanted to be and doing exactly what I wanted to do. How many of you can say that anymore? I shut my cellphone off. I don’t want to hear it. I’m not interested in who wants to get a hold of me at that moment because that moment belongs to me and my God and those birds. So think about what you’re doing, folks, and try to free yourself up a little bit from the compulsive behavior that causes you to have to consume your mind with all this technology.

ALFRED:
And that’s the spiritual path. It’s when you are not looking, you will find what you are looking for.

HANS:
Always.

ALFRED:
When you are looking, you are actively engaging your human-ness which separates you from that which you are looking for.

HANS:
You know what’s interesting, you had a heck of a time learning that from me and now you are teaching it.

ALFRED:
And now the joke is, in order to reach higher states of consciousness you need to separate from that which separates you. That’s part of my automatic writing class, again, to separate from that which separates you. In this lesson we’re telling you to separate from your gadget in order to create space for Spirit to enter your life. To be in nature, to be with other human beings, to socialize, to have family and friends.

HANS:
Exactly. You know, Alfred, I talked to one of our client friends today and he said to me, “I don’t know what I would do without my iPhone,” and I heard Spirit say, “ And that child, is your problem.”

ALFRED:
Exactly. That is the problem, because it is an addiction. If you’re looking for a high, there’s two ways. You can get your high by being addicted to substances, items, iPhones, gadgets, alcohol, whatever it is you’re addicted to.

HANS:
Anything that distracts you.

ALFRED:
To get your high and that is a human approach. Or you can get your high by letting go and surrendering and forming your relationship with that which is always around you. You can’t form that relationship if you have an addictive behavior to something, whatever that is, not just a substance but even an electronic device.

HANS:
You know Alfred, one of my long time clients has three boys and he couldn’t get them off all the gadgets at school and all these things and the mother used to say, “Well I can’t fight them, I might as well join them.” He hauled everybody down to Costa Rica, to a town called Ramon, and they don’t have any cellphones, they don’t have internet. The kids have learned to make friends and their whole lives have changed.

ALFRED:
So if you’re a parent and you’re looking for spiritual ways to raise your kids, it’s to teach them you may find what you’re looking for by disconnecting.

HANS:
So in other words, it goes back to the old teaching - less is more. Basically.

ALFRED:
Yes.

HANS:
The less occupied your mind is with objects, the more spiritual truth and value you’ll get.

I think we’ll go ahead and conclude the lesson for today.

Topic: Being a Seeker
September 12, 2015


HANS:
Hi everybody. The topic for today is "Being a Seeker." In the Bible, it says: Remember that a Seeker findeth always. A Seeker findeth always. 

What is a Seeker? A Seeker is someone who has learned that their life is a bit of an illusion and wants to see beyond the illusion... wants to see what other experiences... how they might expand their consciousness... how they might become someone other than who they are now... because time and society has molded them into a certain character, a certain mold. 

And they're looking to see what else there might be. That is why our belief system is growing so rapidly around the world... especially here around the United States and Canada. Why? Because people are looking to go beyond the norms. They're looking to expand themselves. Alfred, you went through the Seeker phase, didn't you?

ALFRED:
Yes. It's when you start realizing that the paradigms, the rules, the ways of being, that are meant for all people, may not apply to you as an individual. And that's the big thing about spirituality. Spirituality is you are are individual soul with an individual unique body with a unique life-path, a unique karma, a unique set of previous lives that led up to this life. Your experiences are going to be unique. Thus, the rules that apply to you are going to be different for you. 

How they apply to you are going to be different for you. The ones that you decide to follow, the ones that “fit” your incarnation for this life are going to be unique to you. Thus, what we say, is: A Seeker is an individual finding his or her own unique path in this life.

HANS:
Growth path... Exactly, exactly. So when you reach a point that you say: This... whatever "this" is for you... This doesn't work anymore for me. I'm not feeling comfortable in this. I'm not feeling comfortable in what I'm doing, I'm not feeling comfortable in how I'm spending my time. Okay? All you have to do is say to Spirit: I seek a new beginning... I seek a new beginning... and I set my intention to look beyond the limitations I have allowed others and myself to place upon me. I now seek a larger experience. 

I remember a gentleman that I knew who was a fabulous computer chip designer... recognized by his peers. And one day he said to me: I need to look beyond the bowl I've placed myself in. I feel like a goldfish in a bowl. And I think you've all seen that commercial on TV that goes around today, where the goldfish jumps out of the bowl, and they put it back in the bowl. He said: That's how I felt... that he couldn't breathe anymore. 

He was not able to know even who he was. He knew what he could do, and he was very good at what he could do. I said: Well, what do you want to do? He said: I want to live in Hawaii and have a Center and teach. That's what I want to do. I knew it for a long time. And coming from where he was, he would require a partner to help him to do that. And one day, in his 60's, that partner, she came along... and they both shared the same vision. 

Today, that person and the partner have a Center in Hawaii doing very well and they're very happy. How did that happen? Because he set his intention to serve. He set his intention to be the Seeker he always wanted to be and he stopped looking backwards to go forwards. So, a Seeker says: Yes, I can. Yes, I am. You've had that experience before, haven't you Alfred?

ALFRED:
Yes. And basically what we're talking about here in being a Seeker is you really have two choices - to follow what society says, what your education says, what your parents say, what your family, your friends, the television, the media... to follow "that," which are generalizations meant for everybody, and look for your life in that way "or" to seek alternative ways of thinking... alternative perceptions, alternative ways of being.

We do our best to present to you through this Weekly Show, these Topics, our Products, our Classes - to present to you a lot of different perspectives to help you decide what are you going to follow, how are you going to think, how are you going to be. 

HANS:
When you decide that your existence doesn't serve you any longer, then it's time to say: Oh, who locked my door? And the truth of the matter is - that you did. You put yourself in the box and locked the door.

ALFRED:
Yes, and that's where it starts is the choice.

HANS:
It's their choice... Exactly.

ALFRED:
In this topic it is a choice to follow what society in general follows, or the choice  to seek an individual path.

HANS:
That's right. I have another lady friend of mine, who some years ago, she was a Massage Therapist... very well recognized with a very good practice out in Palo Alto, California. She didn't have a lot of money. And she said: Hans, I want to move to Hawaii. But I couldn't possibly afford to do that. I said: No,  you couldn't. So you won't get to go. 

She said: Well, why are  you saying that? I said: I'm not, you are. You're saying that. You're saying you can't afford to go. Spirit isn't saying that. I said: Since when is Spirit not your bank account? She went to her grandmother and she got a little loan. Her name is Hilda. And she watched for the best priced ticket she could get and off she went to Maui. 

And she met someone on the plane, a nice young lady, and they got to talking back and forth.. and it went along... and the short of it is she became a Real Estate Agent. She went to school, she did the massage therapy, she worked in one of the major Hotels there, she earned a living. And now she owns at least 10 or 15 properties, she's happily married, she's living in Maui, and the last time I talked to her, she said: Hans, a Seeker does find... always.

So I think what's important for all of you to understand is you all need to become Seekers. If you listen to the lovely questions that Alfred and I get every week, you can hear in the "asking" the wondering if things will change... the wondering if you'll be okay... the realization that your life often times isn't going in the direction you would like it to go. 

That's when you sit down and say: Enough... enough. You get your friends around you, I'm talking about your Spiritual Friends everybody, sit down with your beverage and you say: Oh, time for a new beginning. You see?

And the minute you say that, Spirit starts the disconnect of what's binding you. They don't look at your dharma and say: Oh, well she can't do this because of that... and she'll never be able to do this because of this. They don't do that. They say: Oh, she gets it. The Seeker is now "aware”. And that's what I want all of you to become is a Seeker who becomes "aware."

Alfred, that's what happened to you... you became "aware."

ALFRED:
Yes. You become aware that you have a choice. And that's where it starts.

HANS:
Absolutely.

ALFRED:
You have a choice to follow all of these things that everybody tells you you should follow. I don't care how much you paid for your education, I don't care what your parents' background is, what they firmly believe, what your family tried to drill into you, what the television, the media tried to pound into you - it all starts with understanding "you have a choice," "you have alternatives," and you make that choice.

HANS:
You know you say something here, Alfred, that I think is very important for people to hear. You kept saying in your speaking right now "you have a choice." Do you know that most people don't know that?

ALFRED:
That's why we're saying that.

HANS:
That's why we're here.

ALFRED:
I didn't know...

HANS:
No, you didn't...

ALFRED:
That's where it started. I didn't know I had a choice. I didn't know I had a choice. And so now we're going to be talking about our second topic which is: What is the choice? What could you seek? What is that alternative? What is a Seeker seeking? 

You can make the choice to say I don't believe the rhetoric... I don't believe the media... Something's just a little weird with what somebody's telling me. What is it? What are the things that you can seek once you make a choice?

HANS:
Anything... anything. Don't we love the story, folks, of people who are born in the life in abject poverty and they struggle and they work and they try to get an education but they always know they're better and bigger than what the  circumstances tells them they are... whatever circumstance they're in. They work hard. And one day, magic appears.. magic. 

And, I've said this for years, if you go and read any biography or auto-biography of any person you think is well known, famous, whatever... somewhere in the book, these words will appear, maybe not in this order, but they will say: And I always knew it.

That's called: Setting your intention and being a Seeker. They always knew. There was no room for doubt. None. Anything that came into their life that was a problem... Oh, this was something that the resolve is already on the way... the fixing this is already on the way. So they never looked at being a Seeker. They never looked at the blocks as a block... they looked at them as a possibility.

ALFRED:
And that's what we call "Truth." What is true for you? What is true for your life path? What is true for you as an individual? What are the experiences that you wish to have in this incarnation? Those things, you'll “feel” inside. They are not things you can think, memorize, understand. No. That's the other side. What we're trying about is the side of you that can feel what is right for you, as an individual.

HANS:
Yes. So what can happen to you if you're a Seeker? Anything you want. There is almost no dharmic roadblock or lesson that is ever designed, or karmic debt, that is ever designed to keep you off your path and keep you from your dreams. That's all humanness... simply humanness. 

So when you become a Seeker, you say: I believe. I believe. I don't know how, I don't know where, I don't know when, but I believe. And when you do that, when you set that intention, when you become that personal Seeker, the truest and the greatness of your purpose is drawn to you - always. 

Alfred is now getting his book underway. That's going to be published. He's got his wonderful "Business in Spirituality” Seminars going. It all started when I said: What do you want to do? He said: I want to teach. That's what you're doing.

ALFRED:
Yes.

HANS:
You went from working in a bank to being a Spiritual Teacher.

ALFRED:
Yes, and a lot of that... what we're going to be talking about, starts with not just a "choice," but then the belief is that there is something more than what is obvious. What is obvious is in the human realm. What is obvious is what your parents tell you, what the TV tells you, what your education tells you. That's "obvious."

HANS:
I call that "program limitation."

ALFRED:
Yes, that's humanness. 

HANS:
That's humanness.

ALFRED:
What we're trying to tell you is to believe, to surrender, into something that is "not obvious". What is not obvious is what is for you, in your specific path. What is true for you, for your specific life. And that takes Faith, Trust and Belief and a lot of Surrendering. We have another topic on "Faith, Trust and Belief". But what we're talking about is, first to make the choice, and then to surrender into that.

What we're talking about in "choices"... For example, is you can try to follow what everything tells you in Western education, Western media, which is you get what you negotiate, you get what you control. We're saying: You have a choice to surrender, to let go, to work with the Universe, to let your life flow in the direction it's supposed to flow. 

That is a choice. You don't have to control everything. You don't have to manipulate. You can simply “Be.” See, that is one of the choices that we're talking about here is to go in the opposite direction in order to find your unique path and that has to do with surrendering into things you may not understand.

HANS:
Thank you... appreciate that. So yes, you too can be a Seeker. You have to set your intention. And above all things, my friends, you must "believe" that when you set your intention, Spirit is standing beside you and you say: I would like the experience of this... I would like the experience of that. A Seeker is someone who says: This life I'm living does not represent who I am. I'm living in an imaginary world that I created... that my parents created... the schools created. 

I remember one thing that Alfred used to talk about a long time ago, is all the education he had to get just to be the Banker. It was a huge amount of education. He had double majors... in what was it?

ALFRED:
Double major in Economics and Business and a Graduate Degree in Business. 

HANS:
And he's teaching Spirituality.

ALFRED:
Yes.

HANS:
And if you think that was easy for him to get to... You see this white hair here? (Hans laughing) It's not been easy friends. But one thing he had was intention to Seek. And that's what I want all of you to have is the Intention to Seek. To seek a greater you, a greater experience, a happier you, a joyful experience. Anything you want, you can create. All the great teachers have always known this. We're only limited by our own imagination - period. That's all. That's it. We're limited by our own imagination. Yes, you can; and Yes, I am.

And that will conclude the lesson for today.
