Living by a Hopi elder’s prophecy

“To my fellow swimmers:

“There is a river flowing now very fast. It is so great and swift that there are those who will be afraid, who will try to hold on to the shore; they are being torn apart and will suffer greatly. Know that the river has its destination. The elders say we must let go of the shore, push off into the middle of the river and keep our heads above water.

“And I say ‘See who is there with you and celebrate.’ At this time in history we are to take nothing personally, least of all ourselves, for the moment we do, our spiritual growth and journey come to a halt.

“The time of the lone wolf is over. Gather yourselves. Banish the word ‘struggle’ from your attitude and vocabulary. All that we do now must be done in a sacred manner and in celebration. For we are the ones we have been waiting for.”

    Taken from an address given by an elder member of the Arizona-based Hopi Nation. More information: www.hopi.nsn.us

FMBR FUNDRAISER: SPOON BENDING (PK) PARTY

This fun evening of metal bending will give participants an opportunity to tap their innate psychokinetic abilities, which are usually enhanced in a group setting. The facilitator, Edie Fischer will first discuss background information on the science of PK and lead the group through preparatory exercises. This introductory phase helps build a peak emotional experience for the participants. The PK party was originated in the eighties by Jack Houck, an Aeronautical engineer at Boeing. Edie and her late husband the physicist Dr. Bob Shacklett learned the technique from Jack, and conducted dozens of parties over the years.

According to Houck "A PK party is defined as a group of 15 or more people who meet to bend metal using psychokinesis (PK) or mind over matter." The process and environment will help participants to shift their belief system enough to at least temporarily suspend their socially conditioned disbeliefs. Typically at least 80% of any group of people successfully bend metal at PK parties, so be prepared to amaze yourself. Children are especially encouraged to attend. To learn more about PK, log onto www.jackhouck.com.

Edie Fischer holds a M.S. degree in Research Psychology, and worked as a research scientist at NASA Ames Research Center in Mountain View, CA. She is on the Board of Directors and VP of Operations for the Foundation for Mind-Being Research and has been interested in, and conducted experiments concerning the Paranormal for the last 25 years. Facilitator: Edie Fischer, M.S. Date: Saturday, May 27, 2006, 7-10 pm. Location: ITP, The Great Sophia Room, 1069 East Meadow Circle, Palo Alto. Cost: $30 in advance, $40 at the door; students and children half price. Contact: For reservation call Edie at 831 254-6021 Send checks to: FMBR, P. O. Box 449, Los Altos, CA 94023.

NEW BOOK BY MEMBERS

Russell Targ and J.J. Hurtak, Ph.D. have just publish a new book entitled The End of Suffering: Fearless Living in Troubled Times ... or, How to Get Out of Hell Free (Hampton Roads Publishing Co., 2006). The authors examine modern culture's battle of opposites: good or evil, right or wrong, Democrat or Republican. In an effort of overcome the perceived polarity of opposites and the accompanying suffering, the authors combine the wisdom of the East with the finding of quantum physics, uncovering a middle ground of nonduality that shows opposing sides are really not independent.
