Topic: The Possibility of Miracles
November 2, 2014





Alfred:
Good evening everyone and welcome to MODERN DAY MYSTICISM with Hans Christian King. Tonight is a very interesting topic - "The Possibility of Miracles". And what a wonderful time it is to start discussing miracles as Hans is so great about talking about bringing things into our lives. Without further ado, I present to you Hans Christian King.

Hans:
Good evening everyone. This is Hans Christian King. Welcome to the show this evening. Tonight's message, if you will, is exactly what Alfred said - "The Possibility of Miracles". Someone asked me a while back: Are miracles possible during times of lack? Oh, Heavens yes! In fact miracles shine brighter during times of lack. I have a dear friend, named Judy, and her license plate says: You Miracle. During times of lack is one of the few times we actually turn to Spirit and ask for miracles. During times of plenty, when everything seems to be going along fairly well, we don't bother to ask for miracles, because the appearance is we don't need them. And what we don't realize is the fact that we don't need them is the miracle.

Your connection with Spirit is always there. It only ebbs and wanes as you ebb and wane. Miracles, if you like to call them miracles, happen every day, all day. Let's say that you have to drive across town to your Dentist. On the way you pass many thousands of cars safely - that's a miracle. Every night that you go to sleep, you pray for unconsciousness, knowing that you will wake up in the morning. Although how that happens you don't know - that's a miracle. Flying across the country at 35,000 feet at 550 miles an hour and arriving safely in an aluminum tin can - that's a miracle. Every day, every day, you can count the miracles.

Awhile back Alfred was talking to you about the fact that he and I were busy running around catching miracles everyday. And that was true. We got so many miracles that we had to wind up asking them to turn off the bubble machine for a little bit so we could catch up with all the miracles they sent for us to do. Remember, lack is only an appearance. It really isn't true. You hear that? Lack is only an appearance, it's really not true. Lack is what your mind believes is happening, not what is actually happening. Have you ever noticed that how broke you get, somehow money arrives again? Have you ever noticed how sick you get with the flu, cold, whatever, have you ever noticed you get well again? Remember what I tried to teach you for all these years - that appearance is only passing through you. It is not your lifestyle, it is not where you're staying, pain, despair. The appearance of lack is replaced continuously in your life - there's another miracle. How many of you say: Oh, I don't know how I'm going to pay the rent this month, or I don't know how I'm going to pay the car payment, and somehow it gets paid. Do we ever stop for just a moment for just a moment and acknowledge the miracle that Spirit made to help you through?

There are going to be times in your life, in the appearance of lack, that things do not show up in your expectation. That is going to happen. But the fact that you are alive, the fact that you have options and choices is the miracle. You know children, sometimes we get slammed to the ground with what I call a trauma to the soul. And our heart if broken, and we're crying, and everything looks so bleak, and lack is everywhere...lack of joy, lack of hope, lack of the appearance of money. But all of those feelings, if you think about it, remind you you're alive.  And if you're wise you will know that no matter what the despair, no matter what the appearance, it will pass.

I once called a Wise Man that I know and his name is Ned. And something very awful had happened in my life and I was looking for him to fix it for me. And he wasn't being unkind, he was being a teacher, when he said: Hans, this will pass. I've got to go. And I thought, how cold, how unkind, how unfeeling. But he was right. He was absolutely right. Two days later it was all gone. It passed. So what I learned in the middle of the appearance of the disaster, if you could call what was going on for me, I had bought into the appearance of it. Forgetting all the while that it only came to visit me, it was only passing through, it wasn't going to stay so why should I spend all my time, you know, being upset about it. 

I have a wise lady friend of mine who used to say when something incredible in appearance would happen to her, sort of a down-time thing, she would say: Um hmm, I wonder what I can make of this this time? I wonder what I can make of this this time? And she always came to the same conclusion: I can grow myself through this. I can look at this as a tragedy or I can look at it as an opportunity. There's the miracle. Children always remember that few things actually are as they appear. I know that sounds crazy to you, but it's true. Our perception tends to blow things out of proportion. Our perception tends to say that this is real, or that pain is real, or this is happening, when it's only an appearance. And if we say what my friend Alexandra used to say: Hmm, I wonder what I can make of this. I wonder how I can grow myself through this? She used to refer to being alive as "the human scene". "The big illusion of the human scene" is how she used to call it. She was an advocate of Joel Goldsmith, if any of you are old enough to remember Joel. And he talked about how we become victims of the human scene - how we get caught up in the appearance, and we forget that every day that we wake up, and we have these challenges is and of itself, a miracle.

I thank Spirit every night when I go to bed for the miracles that occurred in my life this day. And being in human form, and my staff with tell you I get crazy sometimes, and then I wind up giggling at myself remembering: Ah, you teach what you need to learn. Well, this happened today, so what am I going to learn from this? I have learned that my in my 68 years kids, that most appearances are illusions, most fears don't happen. We spend an enormous amount of time in our waking hours in our lifetime being concerned about illusions and about things that never benefit us.

I was giving a reading the other day to a lovely lady in London and she would not let Spirit fix her by explaining what was going on in her life. She kept saying: But this...but that...but what if this happens...what if that happens? And she so was caught up being a victim of the situation that she had lost all her sense of spiritual understanding and awares. And this was a young lady of 45 or 50 who taught this truth. But her relationship had said to her that morning: I don't think I can do this anymore. And she had no coping mechanisms in place for that situation.

You know, I have a friend that he used to say: You know Hans, relationships are like the subway, there'll be another one along here in 5 minutes. In other words, whatever your lessons is to learn through relationships, it will be presented to you. That's a miracle. Setting up housekeeping with someone who is opposite of you and you find a way to make it work, that's a miracle. Teaching a baby how to ride a bicycle, that's a miracle.

If we live in the possibilities of miracles. and don't live in the victimization of fear through illusion, our life takes on an incredible sense of wonder. Because no matter how difficult the lack may appear, remember always it has a corresponding opposite - that's how good you will feel, sad as you feel, how happy you will feel. Like a pen, I said this the other day, or a pencil - one writes on one end and one erases on the other. Everything in life, children, has a corresponding opposite. I repeat these truths through the years because we have a tendency when lack appears to forget our truth. Half the battle of spiritual growth alone is just trust...just trusting. Didn't somebody just write that 90% of success in life is showing up? It's true. Just show up! The worst isn't going to happen. The worst is that you believe it's true. Whatever the lack may appear as, half the battle of spiritual growth is to trust. And if you simply trust that no matter what is presented to you there's an answer, there is relief, it is growing to and through something... And sometimes you're in a relationship with someone and you love this someone to pieces, but you forget that this person came with their own baggage. They came with their own victimization. They came with their own lack. And you see this person and you love this person but every once in awhile their demons and their devils show up. Why, you think yours don't? But when you love someone you say: No matter what this appearance is, no matter how you're behaving, I see you you know. I see you. To me, that's the greatest statement you can ever say to another human being. I emailed James Cameron as a joke and said: You stole my line. I've been using that line for 45 years - "I see you". 

Children trust in what you do not know. Trust in what you do not see. Every day. I don't quite remember, I don't quite remember what they said how many times, every day you trust the air, you breathe automatically without thinking a thing about it. You drive your car automatically without thinking a thing about it. You go to bed, you wake up, without thinking a thing about it. You don't go to bed  saying: Gee, I wonder if I'm going to wake up in the morning. You don't get in your car and say: Gee, I wonder if I'm going to have a bad accident today. You trust. You don't say I wonder if there's going to be any air for me to breathe today. I wonder if my heart will beat one more time. Trust in what you do not see. Trust in what you do not know. Because if you have a heart, a pure heart of trust, then you will know that whatever you will go through in your waking hours and in your bedtime hours, whatever you will go through, will always be to your highest good. Only the mind gets in there and messes with that reality. So having an understanding, having an awareness, that that God that loves you so unconditionally is always present, omnipresent in your life. The Spirit, the Messengers, the Angels - they're all there for you. Not lumping you into groups, not comparing you to others. Knowing full well that you're on a journey, you're on a mission. Knowing full well that their role is to walk “with” you, not “for” you. Knowing you have the ability to make decisions through a spiritual heart, not a mind that's filled with doubts and fears, but a spiritual heart. 

My friend Alexandra used to say: No matter what shows up today I'm prepared for it because God is my champion. Spirit, they're my warriors. And I know they will turn the appearance of lack into the appearance into the miracles of opportunity and possibilities if I just believe. She's now 98, and she doesn't know who I am anymore. But if ever there was a champion in spirituality in my life, it was Alexandra. I have never known, nor I doubt will I ever know anyone who so lived their truth as she did. The mind, of course, has deteriorated due to dementia. And so she's walking in two worlds at one time now. But who she is is always in my heart. What she taught me, I can never ever forget. All of you will have an Alexandra at some point in your life. And even if from time to time you may disagree with what they say to you, remember Spirit helps us choose our friends to grow us. Spirit presents us with interesting possibilities through our friends, disappointments through our friends. 

But the greatest gift that Spirit ever gave you in the appearance of lack, is the person looking back at you in the mirror. If you could simply take all the nonsense that's going on in your life, put it in a basket, put it in the garage and just say: From this day forward I am living a miracle. I have no lack. I am everything I need. Allowing Spirit to work on your behalf, allowing Spirit to open new doors. There are millions of miracles in your life waiting to occur. Lack is a refusal to accept miracles. The appearance of lack has nothing to do with money, children. Lack is a place in your heart that said I am not good enough for miracles. Therefore I will live in fear. Living in fear... I once told you that fear was it's own food. It creates lack on a daily basis. It creates lack from morning until night every single day of your life. The mind does not wake up in the morning for most people and say: You're enough for me today! We have no problems, we are a miracle, we expect miracles.  On the contrary it says: I wonder if I'll have the rent money. I wonder if he or she still loves me enough. I wonder if I'm going to get fired. I wondering if I'll ever get another job. None of the things I have just described, believe it or not, are of any importance in the long run.  All, children, the only thing that is important is the relationship to you and your God. That's it. There are no boundaries in that love. There are no victims in that love. There's only love in that love. 

I have been accused from time to time as being simple minded or simplistic. I thank whoever started that rumor for me because I'll tell you what, I love my life and I love who I am. I love my intention. I love what I am doing. I'm not saying to you, beautiful people, that I am perfect. But I had a sign for many years on my refrigerator door at my home in Mexico that I loved. It said: I'm so far from perfect I'm pleased. Blue, see if you can take that and run with it, okay? (Hans laughing) I'm so far from perfect I'm pleased. 

I have people in my life now... You want to talk about miracles? I have people who are listening tonight, making this broadcast possible, making the live streaming possible, the Facebook possible, people I don't even actually know...I've never met them. But their love and dedication to what, with Spirit, I'm trying to accomplish, what we're trying to say, has no bounds. It is amazing the beautiful people who have shown up. For those of you who are tithing to us so that we can produce these shows and the ministry, thank you, thank you, thank you, and you all know who you are. Sometimes I can't get right back to you, but please know you're in my heart and I thank you very much.

Tell Spirit the miracles you would like to see in your life and leave it alone. Remember to watch the mind chatter as it comes in and starts to play you up a bit. And it will do so. The mind is so fearful of a miracle that it continues to throw up the appearance of lack because it doesn't know what else to do. It would have no job if ever there was no need to worry. The mind would have no job because it doesn't have any congratulation skills. It doesn't have anything in its being that helps it to understand that it's nothing more than the opposite of God. The mind isn't fixated on the wonder of who you are, the mind isn't fixated on everything being okay. The heart-mind knows that. But we tend to, through the years, as the appearance of lack and tragedies and disasters in appearance occur in our life, it keeps reminding us: I told you so. I told you you weren't good enough. 

Folks, there is oftentimes a situation where a person, sometimes in the humanness, is operated by two consciousnesses. Always go with the one that's in the light please. Never listen, never listen to the anger. Never listen to the fear. You know, the ugliest puppy deserves to be loved just as much as the prettiest puppy because there's absolutely no difference in the puppy's love. Sometimes situations do not appear to fit what you think is your modus operandi...how you would do things, or how you would be. But remember you haven't seen your dharma yet. You don't know what your soul chose to create. And sometimes the appearance of lack is nothing more than a lesson. And what is a lesson? A miracle waiting to happen. Because once you understand the lesson, the miracle occurs. 

The burden, the pain... I was talking to a lady a couple of days ago and I believe she was out of Toronto. And she was angry, and she was resentful, and her husband had left her of 36 years, and all the terrible things that he was, and all of this and I said: Excuse me, are you saying that you regret having gone into the relationship? She said: It's the worst thing I ever did. I said: How many children do you have? She said: Four. Now, I said, are you resentful for being in the relationship. Oh my God, she said, maybe the relationship was between he and I to bring those angels on-board life. I said: You got it. And when that role was finished, there was no more purpose in the relationship other than to be friends, and to be a family for those four children. That's the miracle. You brought them on-board through heck or high water, you got them through, you got them up, you got them out, and they're good citizens. That is the miracle. But you're operating out of a place of lack. Woe is me, poor is me, oh look at my life, who's going to want me at 56? Who cares, I said. Who cares? You mean the only thing you have in life is validation from another person? Where's you? You've been married for 30 some years, I don't want you to have another relationship. And that's what Spirit said: We don't want you to have another relationship right now. We want you to have you. We want you to rediscover who you are. Let's bring you to you. 

Sometimes children, sometimes when relationships no longer can survive or endure, we believe that something is terrible, something is wrong. The only thing that is wrong, that I know of, is when you start to throw stones and sticks at each other, rather than witness the wonder of what you had, regardless of whether you had good times or bad times, it was all mixed up. You had them both. Seeing your baby in that birth room for the very first time and you both start to cry. That's a miracle. Would you trade all of those miracles of the first step, the first tooth, out of your anger towards a partner that doesn't want to be with you anymore? Turn to that partner and say: Oh my God, thank you, thank you. And no matter how bad they're being, if they're fighting you for money, or support, whatever, say: Thank you for these children. Thank you for all the years we worked together. Because it's true. Do not be a victim of your own love. Bless the person, thank them, and move on.

The heart's a funny creature. It wants to keep calling up the invalidation. I have  been there, I know. But if you really think about it, would you have traded all the good times, would you have traded that experience for not having done the experience? I don't think so. There are times in our lives when we've taken up with somebody and said: Well, what did I do, take leave of my senses? (Hans laughing) But in the moment, it seemed liked the right and proper thing to do. Find the humor in it as I'm doing with you tonight. Find the humor...and say: Well... I once called my friend Ned and I told him about something and I said: I fail to understand what the lesson in this is. He says: Well, would you do it again? I said: No. He said: There's the lesson. He always taught me with very short, cryptic comments that were meant to grow me. One of the great lessons that Ned gave me, when I was in my 20's... We were to attend a meeting in San Francisco and as a young man of 22, 23 years old I thought I knew everything. We were walking up the court house steps to this meeting. He says: There's one thing I want you to do for me today. I said: Alright sir. He said: Shut up and listen. You don't have the answer Hans. Not yet. And I did. And when I turned my mind chatter off about how I thought the proceedings were going, it was amazing what I learned. So when you shut the mind chatter off, you'd be amazed at what you hear. You've heard me for years say: "You see what you look for you know". When you turn your mind chatter off in how it perceives things are that are appearing to you, you'd be amazed what you can see. There's the miracles.


So the possibility of miracles occur every day. The miracles are waiting to happen for you. Folks, I don't get you pep-talks, I give you spiritual wisdom. And maybe it's a spiritual pep-talk, who knows? But it's true. Miracles are waiting for you every single day. All you have to do - stop the mind chatter, stop listening to lack, stop being in lack, and let's see what happens for you. Alrighty, that's the lesson for this evening.

Topic: The Pain of Lost Expectations
October 25, 2014





Alfred:
Hello everyone and welcome to GUIDANCE FOR YOUR LIFE - Wisdom for Your Soul. This is Alfred, the Padawan to the Modern Day Mystic himself, Hans Christian King. He's going to be joining us in a few seconds, but first the housekeeping. I want to say Thank You All - everyone of you has been "sharing" what we do on Facebook. We're ever so grateful for when you do "share" what we do with your friends, and by telling them that you believe in us, you help us reach out and help others. We don't do any traditional advertising, so thank you very much for helping us get the world out!

And of course, if you haven't seen already on Facebook, we have our Random Acts of Kindness Contest. If you do "share" what we do or if you RT (re-tweet) then we will randomly pick people to get all kinds of goodies - Audio Lessons, Classes, and other kinds of wonderful stuff. We love to keep the positive karma going. So no expectations, but we may pick you if you happen to help "share" or RT (re-tweet) what we're doing out in social media.

And for today's topic: "The Pain of Lost Expectations". So without further ado, I present the Modern Day Mystic himself, Hans Christian King.

Hans:
Hello everyone. Welcome to the show. Alfred, can I participate in that Contest on Facebook?

Alfred:
Absolutely Hans, if you'd like to win your own products.

Hans:
(Laughing) Well that might be nice. I could give them to somebody else. You know folks, throughout my lifetime in service, there is one recurring theme that is extremely painful for a lot of people. If you listen, everyone, to the questions that people send in, there sort of is a theme. Now what is that theme? A lost expectation. 

How do we get to lost expectations? In our humanness, we from time to time, have a strong feeling in our heart or in our mind that we should know this person or we should move to this place or we should be doing this kind of a job or we should be doing this service work of some kind... And oftentimes, the expectation isn't met.

Let's go to relationships folks. A lot of people will say to me: But Hans I knew it in my heart. Let's talk about the gals first, then we'll talk about the guys. Gals, a lot of times you see somebody, and there's this thug that comes in the chest and you just feel that you know this person, you just feel that you want to have something to do with this person, even perhaps become lovers and partners. And this is very strong, and this is POW! it just hits you so hard. But nothing happens. And the person is very nice to you. They talk to you about their partner or what they're doing, but you don't see a lean in towards a relationship. What is happened there is most likely you have met someone from a previous lifetime. So it isn't just the mind and the heart, the soul recognizes that person. And when the soul recognizes that person, it hones right in, and says: Oh, there's my old friend; Oh, there's my old husband, my old wife... Okay?

But what you're doing is,what you've heard me refer to before as "soul crossing". Where you just go by each other to say hello and be remembered. But the humaneness of you sets an expectation. And when the humanness of you sets an expectation, because you believe, you tell God you would like a response to your expectation, even if God, the Spirit, is trying to say to you: Just passing by.  You don't want to hear that, you don't want to know that, you don't want to project into this. Because you "know", because you have this "feeling". So this feeling of "I know that person, and I know I'm going to be with that person"... A lot of the times comes out of the need to be loved. It comes out of a need to be "seen", a need to be "accepted", a need to be someone's "everything". Even though it isn't to be, for you. I cannot tell you how many people Spirit and I counsel a week just listening to people talk about they know that this person is to be in their life. And sometimes, no matter what I say, no matter what I do, they don't want to hear it.

You might check around yourself, see if there's some things in here that you might be holding onto with expectations that you may want to say: Is this causing me pain? Alfred, what do you say on this? I always like to bring Alfred in when it's like a deer in the headlight moment...

Alfred:
Expectations are a very difficult spiritual lesson. Yet, this lesson can have really profound results...

Hans:
Absolutely.

Alfred:
...in terms of your peace and happiness. Expectation is the mind's view of what should happen, the outcome, in the future. So what you're looking at is getting your humanness, your mind chatter involved as to what it thinks the future should be. Spirituality as we all know is surrendering the future, being in the moment, and letting go of those things that we desire, or our mind chatter tells us we should have. And that's where we get ourselves in trouble is when our mind sets us up to expect something in our life and it doesn't happen. The mind has a really hard time understanding: Well, why didn't this happen?

Hans:
Exactly. And oftentimes Alfred, I'm sure you've found, like I have, that the mind often blames the Spirit or blames God. Why didn't God do this for me? Why didn't God give me this? This is what I wanted. I knew it would happen. And we kind of get ourself in a belief trauma as well.

Alfred:
Yes, and a lot of spirituality is about surrendering. It's about being peaceful and happy in the moment. About being grateful for what you have. Realizing that your glass is half full. Having an expectation is that my glass is going to be completely full, or it's going to be more full than it already is. The opposite is: No, I'm peaceful and grateful where I am in the moment.

Hans:
Very good. Thank you Alfred. That's the key right there - being peaceful in the moment. Not setting an expectation. Folks, do you think the Spirit doesn't know what's in your heart? Do you think they don't know your longing, your needs, your desires? Of course they do. But they also know your plan. They have a carbon copy of your dharma. They know where you're supposed to be and who you're supposed to be with. But in the game of life, as we see it, people come by us, who we recognize and we think: Oh, there's my soul mate.

Now let's go away from relationships for a minute and go to expectations regarding things that you would like to have in your life - a new house, a new car, a new job... Let's go to job. A lot of times we set our expectations for a new position, if we don't have a job, we set our expectations for a job. But when we do that. we also fantasize into it about how it needs to look so we can be okay with it. Rather than say: I'm available for that perfect job that is for me at this time. Not tomorrow, not next week, at this time. Thank you for bringing the doors for this to me.

We set our statement, and then we add all of these little subtleties to it, and before you know it, what was just getting you a maintenance job for a moment,  has turned into this lifelong dream of yours to do this or do that. So lost expectations come about when we set them. So the expectation happens when we say... Rather than say: I would like the feeling and I would like the awareness of this particular thing...and I would enjoy seeing how this might be in my life and letting it go...and I would say: to my highest good always. 

So they get it, they hear where you're coming from. You're not saying you're going to be less than if it doesn't happen. You're already enough as you right now. You don't need anything whatsoever. You might like the experience of something. And as Alfred would throw in: And here's how I would like to feel in the experience. That's how you set, what we call today, expectations. Where we don't say: And I want it to show up this way, and I need for this person to love me, and I need this particular job... And all these things that we do in our humanness. They're roadblocks. Somebody wrote, Alfred, I don't know who, but they said: "Expectations are limitations". You remember that?

Alfred:
Expectations are a limitation because it is something that your mind chatter created. It's part of ego, maybe it's something that you saw on television, maybe it's something that your parents told you you deserved, maybe you're trying to live up to the Jones or your friends, and unknowingly you set an expectation of "this is what I want in my live" and it becomes a limitation because everything else that comes across that doesn't look like what your mind is telling you you should have, is now instantly dismissed. However, how do you know what is being presented to you isn't for your highest good? A person that may not meet all of your items on your list may be your soul mate.

Hans:
Yes.

Alfred:
However, you have an expectation written down in your list of what your soul mate should look like and the Other Side presents you with your soul mate and you dismiss that person. So having an expectation, having an opinion, a judgment of what should be in your life and what it should look like is an absolute limitation because then you are dismissing, without even a consideration, those things that Spirit presents to you.

Hans:
Folks, sometimes when we set our agenda, we sort of say to Spirit, taking off on what Alfred was just talking about: And this is how I want it to look, and this is how I want it to arrive. If you have perfect faith, if you believe, then you tell the Spirit what you would like the experience of and that's it...and how you would like to feel. Those two things. I think two-thirds of all the questions that come into this radio show are from lost expectations. If you go back and you listen to all the show... My gosh Alfred, how many shows have we done now? Quite a few...

Alfred:
Four years...about four years.

Hans:
Well that's almost 200 shows. And many of you are the ones who are in the pain of the lost expectation. Folks, I'm not saying it isn't painful. But what you don't realize is why would you want someone who doesn't want you? Why would you do that to yourself? Why would you put yourself in that position? And I hear people say all the time: Oh, I knew that they were for me. I knew it. It's their fault. They're not living up to what they're supposed to do. And very rarely, but it does happen, that's true. But Spirit always has a contingency for a contingency for every contingency.

So if you're supposed to be loved at a certain level, you will be. It may not be by this person. But they bring another person in and you'll say: Oh, I'm so glad that I didn't get first person because this person really works wonderful for me. Letting go of expectations regarding parents. This is the tough one folks. When you let go of the pain and the expectations of the parents, your life gets so much easier. Does it not Alfred?

Alfred:
It really does because then you stop putting energy towards something that might happen in the future. That's number one is you think that thing in the future will actually fix you. If this happens, then I'll be happier, if this person comes into my life, I'll be better. And the reality is, by letting go of anything that has to do with the future, the past, as we all know also, helps you become more peaceful and happy and blissful and joyful in the moment. Expectations are a reflection of what's happened in our past and projects us out into our future which takes us away from being grateful in the moment. So again, it's a huge step towards your spiritual growth to let go of expectations in order for you to be grateful and peaceful in the moment.

Hans:
Folks, many of you run on a time constraint. Oh, I'm getting old, Oh, if I get much older I can't have children, will she still want me when I get to be 50? We run under this fear umbrella of we're running out of time. Folks, there is no time. Oftentimes when the Spirit speaks to you, they say something, they're saying that person will be in your life, probably coming up next lifetime. Not always this one. So letting yourself simply learn to "be" with no expectations. I'm here in this moment, this is the experience I would like to have, I give it to you to do for me to my highest good, and bring those doors to me. Then you're saying: I trust you. I know that this pain in my heart really is self induced. 

And one thing in lost expectations, children, never, ever, ever, become a victim or make the other person a villain. I know clients who have made other people villains in their life only because they didn't live up to this person or that person's expectation of how that person would be. So they pre-set the expectation of how it had to be. But the other person wasn't at that spot. But that doesn't make any difference. Because these people say: Oh, but I knew it was for me, there was no doubt it was for me, and I'm coming to stick this out.

One of the biggest things that people do is when they fall in love with married people, or committed people. I know she's for me, I know he's for me, and I know they're going to leave that person, and I know they're going to be with me. What you are picking up is your experience of that person from a previous lifetime and you get confused about this. If a person is in a relationship, you need to honor that and walk away - period. Under almost any circumstance. If that relationship is to be, it will show up somewhere down the road with you having absolutely no expectations, and nothing to do with it. Okay?

Now, as you go through your life, there are going to be moments when you see someone or something you would really, really like the experience of. Sit down, be quiet, and say to Spirit: I don't know if this situation or this person is for me. But I am available if they are. I'm available to my highest good. Please show me where I need to be with this issue and drop it. Make yourself, of course, available in your heart, but have no expectation of how it has to happen, how it has to show up. 

I know a person, a couple of months ago, who met a person on an airplane. And they struck up a conversation and he was a married person and this girl felt she knew him and she started running all the fantasies and what have you... She drove herself to the point where she had to go to the hospital in a panic attack because he had not called her. When he never said he would. But she knew it, in her heart, that he was going to call. This is what I'm talking about when we disturb our peace, when we disturb our ease. Okay? 

So having a quiet awareness that where you... Folks, why do you think Alfred and I talk so much about being in the now? Making this moment right now all there is. I am enough. Why do you think we do that? Because it's only the mind that brings attachments to the peace. The heart doesn't have to. Only the mind disturbs the peace. The heart never does. So when we learn: Oh, I got to feel something, isn't that wonderful, I'm still alive...

The other day Alfred and I were walking somewhere and the wind was whistling and Alfred's dressed up looking like a polar bear, you can't even see his face with the hoodie he's got on. and I'm in a T-shirt. And he said something and I said under my breath: Yes, but at least I have feelings. I can feel it. Isn't that wonderful? Feeling the cold wind on your face, feeling the Caribbean sand in your feet, feeling a smile on your face when you see a puppy... Those are the things folks, that are important.

So the greatest gift you give yourself is to stop expectations and replace them with a knowing and an understanding that Spirit is here for you. They know what's supposed to be for you. Let them do their work and many times their work does not show up in your expectation. Alfred, what did Mick Jagger say in that song? You don't always get what you want...

Alfred:
...but if you try sometimes you just might find you get what you need.

Hans:
There is a metaphysical statement if ever there was one. So where you already are, right now folks, is perfect. Have you ever noticed everyone that no matter how bad things seem to get, somehow you always get through? No matter how broke you are, no matter how poor you may be in a moment, somehow, something happens and you get through? Have you ever noticed that when you've had a relationship you think it's your end-all, be-all, and this person says: I'm sorry it doesn't work for you. Your heart is broken, it's shattered and on the floor. A year later you wonder what you ever saw in the person because you're with somebody else. 


Just being peaceful, in the moment, will bring to you all the lessons you need to learn. So less expectations is less pain. Alfred, I think that will conclude the lesson for today.

Topic: Ebola and Fear
October 18, 2014




Alfred:
Hello everyone and welcome to GUIDANCE FOR YOUR LIFE. This is Alfred, the Padawan Learner to the Modern Day Mystic himself, Hans Christian King. We have a very relevant topic today: Ebola and Fear. If you want to know Spirit's perspective of Ebola, listen on.

So Hans, what does Spirit think about the News that's going across the U.S. and also internationally, about Ebola?

Hans:
Well they're a little bit perplexed to be perfectly frank with you. Although they admit that Ebola is certainly something to be concerned about, the hysteria that's being created is almost as bad. Let's put this in proper perspective. One person in the United States has died from Ebola who had come to the country from West Africa. A terrible tragedy indeed. Another person has been infected. We have a nation here of approximately 318 to 320 million people. One and half people, and yet the Radio Shows, the TV Shows, the Newspapers, the Magazines, are simply terrifying people. Airline traffic, passenger traffic is dropping. People are canceling trips to Europe, the Middle East. 

And I have to say to all of you, with due respect, why is it this country feels it needs to be led by fear? If it isn't fear of one thing, it's fear of something else. You all remember the Swine Flu "the epidemic", the peril, all running to the Doctors and getting the shot? You remember all that?

Alfred:
Then there was "The Bird Flu".

Hans:
The Bird Flu was another one. Remember all that? It's spreading all over Europe, it's coming to the U.S., it's going to kill thousands. We find out later that there was no epidemic. The normal amount of people who get it, got it. So we have to sit down sometime and ask ourself why we allow the Media to destroy our peace, to destroy our ease. And this is what the Spirit is asking me to say to you: Please stop being afraid. Your chances of getting Ebola are so remote as almost not being able to calculate. 

I have a dear lady friend of mine in Los Angeles who is so terrified for her children, of Ebola, that she has made herself sick and she's had to put herself in bed. Now folks, enough is enough now. I don't know what it is, but no other country that I know of terrifies itself of as much as the United States does. You won't find this fear in Canada, you won't find it Mexico, you won't find it in England, or Japan, or China, or Australia. You'll only find it here in the U.S.

Alfred:
Well actually let's talk about that.

Hans:
Yes.

Alfred:
Let's talk about why it's here in the U.S. Let's talk about advertising specifically. There's two types of advertising that I can think of off the top of my head and I love to get Spirit's opinion on these two. Number one - Fear someone might break into your house. Fear that someone might take something away from you. Fear that something could possibly happen.

The second fear is - Fear that you're not good enough. Fear that you're not thin enough, fear that you're not pretty enough.

Hans:
Yes, but Alfred we're taught this.

Alfred:
Exactly. So what's the spiritual perspective on buying products because they tell you something might or possibly could happen, Hans?

Hans:
Well Spirit's point of view is when you're doing this, you say: I don't believe. I don't trust. No folks, I'm not saying to get on a Liberian Airliner and fly to West Africa. No, no. I'm saying, don't be afraid of it. Don't pick up Newspapers whose headlines are there to scare you. Don't turn on the News. All of these people on the News, and all these Talk Shows, even my MSNBC, FOX, all of these, are here for nothing but their "opinions" to be printed or heard aloud. "Opinions". Think about it folks. They're reporting as "fact", "opinions". Have you ever noticed on one of the channels...well, I'll just say it, FOX Alert, Alert. Red lights flashing. It's nothing more than a story. It's nothing that's happened.

All this fear, Alfred, is based on, as you put it so succinctly, is based on what "might" happen. Not what has happened, not actually what's going to happen. But what "might" happen. The President doesn't know what to do. The CDC doesn't know what to do. They're trying desperately to stop the spread of fear which is far worse than the spread of Ebola in our country.

Alfred:
So let's talk about spiritual principles - about what "might", "possibly", "could", happen. Those are all of the things people consider what might happen in the "future".

Hans:
Yes.

Alfred:
Okay? The future has to do with worrying. Worrying about what "might" happen. And Hans, I think one of the basic spiritual principles that we try to teach is: If you trust and believe that God has you, that you're on your right path, you instead focus on your peace and joy in the moment.

Hans:
That's right. And yes there are things... Something came into my life today that just hit me out of nowhere folks. Just being up front with you kids. Just knocked me flat for a second. Like "Oh, that's interesting. I didn't know that I had to do that". Nothing is really wrong everybody, just unexpectedly "something" happened. And I vented about it for a couple minutes about it to Alfred, and he reminded me of my teachings, which made me want to take him and shake him, but he was right. In that moment I kind of lost it for a little bit. That's the goodness of being in human form, folks.  You're allowed that little frailty every once in awhile. What is it that we teach you? We're just baby angels in form, therefore we're entitled to our human frailties every once in awhile. Laugh at it. I did. I made it better. I'm fine with it now. It'll work out. It's not my problem. Somebody else will handle it. I'll be fine. 

I'll give you an example folks. Everybody remembers Fukushima...the atomic reactor in Japan that broke. I have friends who the husband has been offered a six figure job, and they need the money, they really require the money. They've got four kids, two of them about to enter College. And he's been offered this job in Hawaii. But the wife is so horrified of the huge radiation levels in Hawaii, that she doesn't know is true at all, she wants him to not take the job. And Spirit says: Don't be ridiculous. Of course take the job. The children and you are just fine. 

So what happened there? The News Media took the leak and blew it out of all current proportions...

Alfred:
And wasn't that just a single student's theory on what "might" happen?

Hans:
That is correct Alfred. So this single student has been monitoring the spread of the radioactivity. Oh, it hit California...the debris is just now coming to the Pacific Northwest. Folks, you get more radiation every single day of your life by watching television. These are the scientific facts. But the fear, our need... And Alfred, I'm going to put it that way, "our need to be afraid". And this is something that I don't understand Alfred.

Alfred:
Alright. Well let's look at that from a spiritual standpoint.

Hans:
Hold on, hold on. I'm going with you. I had a lady today who was terrified of something she had made up in her mind and what I said to her: Well, do you know this is a fact? She says: No, but they'll be nothing there. It'll be a blank space. And she said: And I'm afraid. I said: You're afraid of what? She said: I'm afraid of what I don't know. I said: How in the name of all that's holy can you be afraid of something you don't know? And Alfred, that dovetails into what you were talking about. We're taught to be afraid of what we don't know. 

Alfred:
Exactly and that is again the opposite of what our spiritual teachings are which is: No, you are perfect just the way that you are. 

Hans:
Yes.

Alfred:
Okay. Let's look at all the other types of, shall we say, fear based advertising. Fear that you're not good enough, fear that you won't be recognized, fear that you're overweight, fear that you're too thin, fear that you're not too healthy, fear that you're eating the wrong thing. All of those fears have to do again with -  you're not good enough in the moment - and you need something to be better.

Hans:
Yes.

Alfred:
If you're in tune with your soul, if you're in harmony with the universe, you'll realize that anyone, anyone, can connect to Spirit and be in absolute perfect bliss within a minute, within a couple of seconds, within a very short time and that is your connection to the universe. And all of these things about trying to make you better, separate you, not make you better, separate you, isolate you.

Hans:
But here, Alfred, take this into consideration. The CDC - Centers for Disease Control have really been helpful for our people for a long, long time. The CDC said for us to stop worrying. There will be no spread of Ebola to the U.S. Watch the fear mongers who have been trying to take the CDC, pull it apart, to prove a theory that they have is correct and the CDC is wrong. They need to prove to us the fear is here. They're attacking our security, they're attacking the President, they're attacking the government, because they say they are lying to us. 

But they have no proof of that and they never will. So that deep-seated need to be afraid... And Alfred, I'm going to stick my neck out here, there are some News Media outlets that truly need to be called forward and become more responsible for what they're saying, on all issues. They are scaring their people. Alfred, you have a lovely couple that you know, who live by the word of these people. And don't they have guns everywhere and aren't they packing stuff and terrified?

Alfred:
Yes. Some of the sweetest people that I know, for some reason...

Hans:
And they are absolutely sweet people.

Alfred:
...live in a very Republican county and because everybody else listens to FOX News, they listen to FOX News and he has not one, but multiple guns in the house. I'm not talking little guns, I'm not talking the big guns that you see on television and in the movies. Because somebody might enter the house, and it might be D-Day, and they have a SUV in case they might need to drive off-road and...

Hans:
It's never ending.

Alfred:
...and these people are the absolute sweetest, kindest, gentlest people otherwise. But for some reason they're invested in believing what FOX News says. 

Hans:
Yes.

Alfred:
That is the power of Media.

Hans:
Here's Spirit's lesson. One of the things Spirit has always taught me, and I've always taught all of you, is that fear is choice. You're not naturally born with fear. Fear is a choice. You're born with a need to be loved, held. That's what you're born with. So fear is a foreign agent that has entered into you. 

Now let's say your mother was extremely fearful when you were pregnant.  There's a decent chance you may be a little fearful also. But most people are fairly well balanced. So you have to ask yourself why do I make a choice to scare myself? Why? What is it inside of me that is so painful that I need to torture myself with fear? So it's a really good spiritual lesson. And the lesson is: Are you not good enough to not be afraid? Which is, Alfred, what you were talking about earlier.

Alfred:
Okay. Ask that question again please. I was checking something.

Hans:
Okay. What I'm trying to say is you have to ask yourself WHY is it that you feel, whoever you are, need to listen to situations, read situations, watch situations, that disturb your ease? And what I was saying dovetails into what you were talking about being "taught” fear and doubt.

Alfred:
A lot of it has to do with anxiety. There's this thing called adrenaline. Okay? And fear, as far as I can tell, I'm not a doctor here but I'm remembering my human experiences, is that rush of control, that rush of trying to control the outcome, that total feeling of being in control...

Hans:
That's a misnomer. We're not in control of anything. 

Alfred:
Yes, in essence, going so far into being human, testosterone, Eeerrr, that type of stuff, it gives you a little bit of a high.

Hans:
Yes, but it's a false high.

Alfred:
Exactly, but I'm talking about why do people do it.

Hans:
It's because they're taught that that rush is okay.

Alfred:
Yes. We're taught that it's good to be in control.

Hans:
Did you know Alfred, that that same rush can be turned into a rush of spirituality?

Alfred:
And that's why we're here...and that's why they listen.

Hans:
What is it that you call it? A natural high? It can be termed the same rush, which actually depletes your net energy, can be turned around and focused into the Spirit.

Alfred:
And that's why people listen to us, which is to say: What other option is there? What other choice is there than to give into the fear, do what the advertisers tell us, follow the crowd? Okay, what we're telling you is: Trust, faith and belief.

Hans:
Yes. You know, early days when you were first getting started, something happened to you, and I'll tell you what happened. One day I said to you: Go out and look at that rose. And you went on and you said: What? I said: Go out and look at that rose. And I had a spectacular rose that was blooming. And Alfred went out and he started looking at the rose. and he was out there looking, and turning his head, and he's looking all around. And he came back in and said: I got a natural rush after looking at the rose. Remember that?

Alfred:
Yes. And that's what we're trying to tell is it's more important to have faith, trust and belief, and to live in the moment, than it is to be in control. It is by being in control that you're separate of the beauty, the joy of life. You separate yourself "from" the oneness of God, you separate yourself "from" your Guidance. By being in control, the Other Side looks at you and says: Hmm, okay, how's it working out for you? 

Hans:
Exactly. So this is a wonderful opportunity for everyone to learn the value of simplicity in peace. Here's one thing I want all of you to look at. Have you ever noticed everyone, that all of the dire predictions over the last 25 years that have been given to us by these naysayers, have never come true?

Alfred:
Oh, I have a joke Mr. Nostradamus being reincarnated and making predictions...

Hans:
(Laughing)

Alfred:
You know they tried to say that Nostradamus, 500 years ago, predicted what happened with the planes in New York City?

Hans:
Hmm...

Alfred:
Because they said: Oh, there is truth in these fear predictions.

Hans:
Yes. Folks, most of you don't know what Alfred is talking about here. There is a book out by a friend of mine, Walter Semkiw, and in the book, it's a good book, by that I mean it's rather interesting. His theory is that I am the reincarnation of Nostradamus. It's in that book, it's in several other books. It's in a new book that's coming out of India and another one in Australia. I can't say anything to that, other than, he was not always correct. Okay? And I think that's what Alfred is trying to get at.

Alfred:
No. They're saying that Nostradamus, a great predictor of, in this case a horrible catastrophe, actually did predict a huge catastrophe. 

Hans:
Yes.

Alfred:
When people make these predictions you should listen.

Hans:
Folks, it's as silly as the following, saying to the 14 million people who live in Southern California: Folks, there's going to be a major earthquake, you need to be prepared. Every single day 8 million people are flying around the world in a plane somewhere. Folks, I'm going to predict that one of these days shortly,  there's going to be a major airplane crash. Okay? Living in a hurricane zone, a tornado zone... Anybody can predict, folks, that something's going to happen. And when it does, they say: Oh look! It's been happening for millions of years. It has nothing to do with prediction. We are living on a planet that is currently growing. As I like to point out, the north end of the Golden Gate Bridge is currently growing towards Alaska, and we'll get there eventually because they'll have to start adding on to it... 

Don't be afraid, my dear friends. Stop the fear. Don't be afraid you'll run out of money. Know that you won't. Don't be afraid of your health. Know you're in good health. Don't listen to these naysayers, don't listen to these... Folks, you watch, in a month and a half, where the Ebola story is in the headlines. Watch, just watch. Folks, you remember last summer this enormous immigration problem with children and they said: Oh, they're all coming across the border and Senators were down there - how dare they let these kids in... What happened to that? Where'd it go? Where'd it go? Well I'll tell you where it went. The Mexican Government stepped in and stopped the train. That was that. U.S. Government went down to Central American countries and said we're going to send them back so there's no need in sending them. 

This constant need... And from the Ebola, we're getting ready to have it go to the Elections. Watch and see how spooky that is. And folks, let me tell you something. To be very honest you, it won't matter who wins the election this year. The country has a separate path its set upon. And that path is being brought to us bit by bit. Everyone...for those of you, and I have a dear friend of mine in Colorado who is extremely sensitive to vibrational patterns, for those of you who are very susceptible to vibrational patterns, please know all you're doing is picking up other people's fear. 

Our country's actually better off than it was a hundred years ago. It's certainly better off than when I was born. Okay? We'll get there. Just you bring the light that you are seeking in your life. You bring it to yourself.


Alrighty Alfred, I think that concludes the lesson for today.

Topic: CD's In Your Mind
October 11, 2014





Alfred:
Hello everyone and welcome to MODERN DAY MYSTICISM being broadcast on The World Puja Network. This is Alfred, assistant to the Modern Day Mystic himself, Hans Christian King.

Hans:
Good evening everyone. It is really wonderful to be with you. It's a beautiful day here. Actually it's coming into evening here in Asheville, North Carolina. The trees are all out, they're celadon green, and I would like to announce to everyone who's been asking me, yes, I did put roses in and yes, they are looking beautiful. Lots of comments from my folks back here.

For a long, long time there is one consistent thing that I have spoken to all of you about and I know you are tired of hearing it. That's a good sign! But are you listening to it? Can you hear it internally when I say: Of all the things that will destroy your joy and possibilities, it is your own mind chatter. Nothing else. No one's coming for you, no one's going to get you. That one statement, of all the things that will destroy your joy and possibility, it is your own mind chatter. 

There is an excerpt in the book that we have coming out that Spirit gave to me many years ago that you should all write down and put on your refrigerator door, on your mirror, behind your front door so you can see it when you walk out, and it says: We live within the limitations of our own perceptions. These are not words, children. These are not simply words. They're spiritual awarenesses. These two  little statements that I have given you this evening that you've heard, some of you for decades... You see how I know when you don't listen to this when you ask me the same question again. 

We live within the limitations, now that's the boundaries, of our own perceptions. And so I've been working very hard with you and with Alfred over the last several weeks to try to drive home an enlightening point for you. If you could just do one thing this lifetime to enlighten yourself, what do you suppose that would be? Don't listen to your mind chatter. It is what brings your dreams to a halt. It is what causes you to believe that you need to be fearful, something must be wrong.

I'm going to ask Alfred for a second here. Alfred, when did you notice that you were living within the limitations of your own perceptions? Was it when you came on board here?

Alfred:
I'll give you the same answer I gave you last week Hans. 

Hans:
Yes.

Alfred:
When those of us get to be to a point where we can do automatic writing, or channel our Guidance, or receive guidance from the Other Side, you first-hand get to read or listen to absolute truth. And when you compare that to your thoughts, what you perceive to be truth, what you think is true, what you're spending time on doing, you can no longer deny that what is between your ears is taking you in a place that is so small, so limited, so tiny, so minuscule...

Hans:
I hear what you are saying but the question to you is the following: You knew, and automatic writing was brought to you, what about the billions of people out there who don't have the luxury of that awareness? How can they hear these two statements? Where do they have to go within inside of themselves to hear this? Where do they need to understand that all their negative thinking destroys their life? Where do they need to go to understand that they're living within the limitations of their own perceptions? I understand what your remedy is and you're absolutely correct. But for the billions of people who don't have the luxury of your consciousness, how would they make their first step forward without the automatic writing and taking the Intuitive Development Class, because that's what people are going to want to know.

Alfred:
A lot of us are angry, mad. I'll ut it that way without coming up with any interesting words. And it's difficult to understand that we are the actual cause of our own anger. We love to blame other people for our anger, our disappointment, our sadness, it's their fault, they did this to me... That is a human perception. What we try to teach is that we are our own reason for being angry...

Hans:
We're our own limitation.

Alfred:
...for being sad, for being depressed. We, ourselves. Everything in spirituality is the opposite. The body, the mind says: It's out there, it's out there. Spirituality says: No, it's in here. It's what is inside of you is what is causing you your limitations, your sadness, your pain, your anger. And with this one realization, you can go in and start looking for what is causing me to be angry, what belief do I have, what perception do I have, what opinion do I have that is causing me to be angry, that is causing me to be sad? Is it really true that I am causing this upon myself?

Hans:
What I find, Alfred, is that people need to be okay in giving themselves permission to look beyond the boundaries of their limitations. What I have been trying to teach people, lo these many years, is to find a safe place within to say: Yes, I understand that, but I wonder what if. I wonder if there might be something else. And I believe that that one thing, if they can give themselves permission to see outside of the box, even though they don't have to jump out of the box, if they can just see outside of the box, I believe that opens an entirely new vision of possibilities for them. And that, of course, is why I've been teaching this for so long. Does that make sense?

Alfred:
It does, Hans.

Hans:
You see.

Alfred:
And a lot of the discussions that Hans and I have is not just simply that we come at things at two different perspectives. It's that this lesson can affect you no matter where you are in your spiritual growth. Hans likes to teach it, as he said, from a very beginner's perspective. Where would you actually start with this? 

Hans:
Simple is best.

Alfred:
Simple is best. I like to look at this from say, more advanced perspective. 

Hans:
That's why you were a banker.

Alfred:
Yes. But what we're trying to say is this is one of those fundamental lessons that no matter where you are in your spiritual growth... Because there's a little story that Hans and I like to teach that if you have a very big rock and you throw it into waves, there's 2 or 3 foot waves that are coming at you, and you throw huge rocks at those waves, it's really not going to matter much. But if you, say throw a tiny, tiny pebble into a clear, placid lake, even though you think that your mind is crystal clear, even though you may think you are very evolved in your spirituality, the slightest pebble will create ripples to the other side of the lake.

Hans:
Always.

Alfred:
And it may be something as simple as a thought. 

Hans:
So what we're trying to teach you, what I have been teaching Alfred now, he is teaching his courses, what I've been teaching you is that you don't have to be a wizard in spirituality to find truth. Truth is always simplicity itself. Always remember that. So when you find your mind chatter running away with you, just running helter-skelter, remember to sit down and say to yourself: This needs to stop, in this moment I chose to be peaceful. Just peaceful. Making where you are in the moment nothing more than a lesson that you chose to learn, everything is fine. 

I remember the anger and all the frustrations that Alfred went through. You want to talk about a madman loose in the world. Remember those days Alfred?

Alfred:
Oh yes. I was mad at everybody for all the things they did to me.

Hans:
That's right. He was an enormous victim of his history. And gradually, I watched him throughout the years bless this one, bless that one, and when they were called up for whatever reason, his anger had dissipated. And that's because he had grown past the need to hurt. And he began to look at things from both sides.

Remember, we view ourself in the world a certain way. We speak from behind the veil of who we are. And behind that veil is the spiritual self. So there's the world out there, there's you in the world out there, and then there is the spiritual you in here. You see? So when you reconnect with the spirit within, and shut off the mind chatter, everything gently and slowly begins to shift your perception. And as you shift your perception, the power that the mind has to create illusion, fantasy, fear, all of this, dissipates dramatically in the fear aspect. And possibilities then... Alfred likes to use the term - the big drum and the ocean. Well  if you start to let some of that oil out, it starts to rise back up to the top. So when you let the gunk out, the heaviness out of the mind chatter, then you float closer to the spiritual you.

Specific things that you should pay attention to, that run through your mind, are you sure that you want to let go of what you have? Now I like to use Alfred as a student to show you some of the ways he had his mind set. I have to tell you he had one of the most severe mind sets of anyone I've known in a long time.

Alfred:
I paid a lot of money for that mind set.

Hans:
I understand that dear friend. However, it just devastated him. He really was caught up in the illusion of Southern California. If any of you don't know what that illusion is, it's called fantasy land, and he was caught up in that, and he was speeding on the freeways, and all of this stuff.

Alfred:
Just think Hollywood.

Hans:
Yes. Same thing. He believed that. He would go out and meet people and they right away would say: What do you do? Rather than: Who are you? And you were judged by what you were doing, and I believe, Alfred, you were judged by  how much money you were making. So for him to even listen to when Spirit said to him: You must let go of this was... How did you handle that in the beginning when I said, you know you're going to have to let go of this stuff.

Alfred:
I thought he was crazy.

Hans:
(Laughing)

Alfred:
That's probably a nice way that I said it.

Hans:
Well those weren't the words you used. They were a little "flowerful"?

Alfred:
Yes. I had a lot of choice words back then that I used very freely. I don't know how Hans dealt with me at the time...

Hans:
Honest to God I don't know either. But he had one thing that all of you need to hear. Because all of you will need this one gem. Alfred had "intention" to look at why he was in pain, and he had intention to look at things that Spirit brought by him. He would pooh-phoo them at first, but then he would always come back: Well, what did you mean when you said that... What did you mean when Spirit said this or said that... His intention was to see outside of the box. You see? And that's why I want all of you to begin to look at the possibilities of seeing outside of the box, outside of the limitations.

Another one that will come up, if you go out there, in whatever out there is, just think what could happen to you. One of the things that Alfred said to me was: If I follow this path, you know I'll loose most of my friends. And that was true. What he didn't realize was the friends that he had were based on where he was at that time. Now he has a whole new set of friends. But the mind will say to you: Yeah, but what happens if you go out there? How can you trust anybody? What happens? What if?

And now I'm back at my friend and how did that affect you Alfred? He's looking at me like oh-whoa-whoa... I'll tell you how he did, he struggled. He struggled with who was he going to be without what he had already built. You see? That's the answer I'm looking for from him. How did he get there? I want to go back to something that I taught him to do. I said set your intention. Have no intention to harm anyone, have no intention to abandon anyone, allow the law of life to take care of that. And there was another one that comes up for all people: What if no one likes you? And I will say to you: What do you care? That's not your problem. That's their problem. Because you are a wonderful divine expression of the love of God in the human form. What you care what a neighbor or someone who works about you... That's why we have that wonderful saying in metaphysics that says: Not my problem. 

And then there's this one thing that crops up for everybody. What if you are really not good enough? Now, I've taught you that that could never be true. There is no way that could be true. The Godforce, Spirit would never even look at that because they teach you: You already are enough. But the mind chatter is trying to convince you that you may not actually be quite good enough to get your dreams. Maybe you believe and you believe and you believe in Spirit and you believe in our work and all that... But somewhere deep inside of you, you think it may only apply to others, and not to you. Nothing, children, could be further from the truth. Nothing, because you already were born good enough. We've been dealing with this for sometime with you.

Here's one I just love. What if you fail? Excuse me, there is no such word in spirituality. There's no such word with the Godforce. Fail? That is impossible. That is a concept that was made up by humans, you see? Why do you think I'm so adamant against games - football, baseball, TV shows that have winners. Why? Because it teaches our children, number one-they might not be good enough because they lost, number two-they didn't try hard enough, number three-they failed. Isn't that a horrible, horrible word - failed? There is no degree of human awareness that would ever precipitate the world failure in spirituality - it's a non-word, it's a non-emotion. It is your mind chatter running amok with your human consciousness. 

So what you want to hear instead is first sit down, calm yourself, know it's nothing more... When you're really running your crazies, when you're really upset, when you are really just going crazy, calm yourself and know it's only mind chatter - it is not true.

Alfred, I'd like to come to you on that particular one here. You always sort of ran on high octane, remember? 

Alfred:
Um hmm.

Hans:
How did you... I used to say to you: I want you to have a whole day where you didn't touch a computer or an iPhone or anything that had a button on it.

Alfred:
I went insane.

Hans:
(Laughing) He really did guys, he really did. How did you get to a place where... You said to me once: I like this new schedule. I get the weekend off. I don't have to do anything... How did ever make that happen?

Alfred:
A lot of the way I managed to get Hans' lessons, regardless of how simple they seem...

Hans:
They're not simple, Alfred.

Alfred:
They sound simple, but implementing them in your life, following them on a daily basis is not so simple. They're easy for us to remember, but implementing them at the right time is another subject. Because first of all, you're taking this very simple thing and saying: Well, that's so simple. I've been doing this for 10, 20, 30 years. We're just going to keep continuing doing it this way. The first thing is to say: Okay, let's just try it. If it's so simple, let's just give it a go and see how it goes. If not, again, we've said this before, the worst thing is you can go back to the way you were doing it before.

Hans:
That's right. That's the worst that can happen to you.

Alfred:
Okay? So, what we say is just try to implement these things, these very basic teachings, on a daily basis, and then you'll see, hmm mm, there is a method to his madness.

Hans:
(Laughing) I had someone, Alfred, walk up to me at a presentation we were at recently and said to me: Hansy, I've been following you for 3 or 4 years now. You know, she said, I thought at the beginning your work was just simply too simple for me. I thought you had to strive, and you had to know all these fancy terms and work with all these fancy people and all that. And she said: What I found out was I couldn't even do the basics. And without the basics I could never work with other people. She said: So your lessons helped me to lay the foundation and that is what I'm trying to explain to Alfred who will build upon the foundation I have given him and put his own tweak on it. And my job has always been to simply say: Yes, you can. And no, you're not. But we have very little built in mechanisms from our peers, our parents, our schools, that look at you and say: Didn't you already know you were enough? Stop struggling. God loves you. 

We have a society, right now, that is currently failing. And it's failing badly. We will pull through economically speaking, I'm not concerned about that, we always do. We're the largest economic engine in the world. We will  pull through. But I'm watching...I'm watching us tear ourself apart and that breaks my heart. But you don't need to be effected by that. Because once you operate in and with the Godforce, with spiritual power, none of that effects you. First calm yourself and know it's only mind chatter. Then pay attention to what your soul tells you. Now here I bring Alfred in.

Alfred:
And that's the hard part. 

Hans:
How did you get to do that? What was the "click". I always talk to him about a "click". What clicked for you?

Alfred:
It's practice. This is spiritual practice. I don't think, from my perspective, there is a click. There is just an ever, so gradual strength that the more you practice calming yourself, realizing that it's just your mind, lowering the importance of what your mind says, raising the importance of what your soul tells you, raising the importance of listening to Guidance, it just happens on a day-to-day basis. It's like going to the gym. It is not one day you go to the gym and all of a sudden how much you can lift goes up 50 pounds. No, it's every day maybe you lift an extra 1 or 2 pounds, some days you lift 5 pounds less, some days you lift 5 pounds more. But it's just gradual. It's spiritual practice. And this is it. It's the practice of calming yourself. Realizing it's mind chatter and then saying: Okay, now let me pay attention to what's really important - what I need to strengthen, what I need to actually realize who I am is my soul. And that, in itself, is every part of spiritual practice. It's to go within, to strengthen your soul, no matter whether you're a healer, an intuitive, a waiter, a taxi driver, an engineer, a banker... That is what is you're to follow. That is the difference between being human and being spiritual. It's that practice.

Hans:
It is. And when you learn the value of simplicity itself, when you learn that something either is or is not, nothing is right, nothing is wrong, it simply "is". My students throughout the years, including Mr. Alfred, would always say to me: What do you mean there's nothing wrong? Look at the injustice. Look at all that's going on. Where is God? God is there. People choose not to love each other. People choose to make rules and laws for other people. People choose to disenfranchise people, to invade people, to shoot people... Where is God in that? God is not present. And that is the problem.

Calm yourself and know it's only mind chatter. Then pay attention to what your soul is telling you. Alfred, that will conclude the lesson for this evening.
