ENTHUSIASM CONQUERS ALL
( A mini editorial by Al )

It's nice to be so full of enthusiasm for the new day that you wake up bright eyed and bushy tailed 20 minutes or so before your scheduled get up time. I haven't used an alarm clock for over 30 years - they're too noisy and startling anyway. It's much nicer to set your psychic alarm system to wake you gently and lovingly. It works wonderfully - I haven't overslept but twice in 30 years. You can still have all the fun on the astral and come back quite fully refreshed and rarin' to go. Remember the root of enthusiasm is the Latin term "en theos" which literally means "full of God." And indeed it is the positive power that sells, achieves and creates. How does one generate that kind of positive enthusiasm without producing anxiety or impatience? It's sort of a combination of Raja Yoga and my pet new term "enthusiastic serenity." Raja Yoga is the Yoga of WILL. It's philosophy is "I control the desires of this physical and astral body - they do not control me."


The same is true for pains. When something hurts I recognize it as a request for help and tell it, OK I got the message and will act on it, now shut off the pain - and it goes back into the nothingness of its origin. It's most helpful to one's well being to be able to dismiss physical pain. My almost sainted grandmother had a fall that broke her hip. She woke up in the hospital, ordered the doctors and nurses out of her room, got dressed and walked out of the place under her own power. My mother said, yes but she walked with a limp for the rest of her life - but I say she walked and that's a lot better than being in a wheel chair with a metal pin in her hip. Let's meditate together on the power of your spiritual WILL and let it be your strongest tool for handling physical problems. It WORKS!

YOU GOTTA ACCENTUATE THE POSITIVE
( A mini editorial by Al )

Hi! We reach all the way back to Johnny Mercer's "You Gotta Accentuate the Positive" for our editorial and self help program this month. It's working just as well now as it did for me 40 years ago. Do have a good read, laugh with us and apply it to spice up and enhance your daily life in very prosperous ways.


Must have been about 40 years ago by now - I was charging down a Los Angeles Freeway in near panic on a business errand for an escrow company when all of a sudden my car radio came on by itself and was playing Johnny Mercer's "You Gotta Accentuate the Positive" at very high volume. I recognized it as both advice and tangible help from my Spirit Friends, slowed down, started deep breathing and continued on to successful completion of my mission. Seems like I was already an ordained Minister of Spiritual Science by then but I have to admit that this little incident significantly reenforced my beliefs. It's really part of "Before you call I will answer and while you are yet speaking I will hear." That's also an introduction to the practice of dimension shift. It took many more years for Ishtar and Pan to get that one into my head and working expertise, but fortunately our Spirit People are dauntless and do stick with us as long as we let them.


Einstein's theory of relativity seems to support us here - if you're exceeding the speed of light you become an imaginary number - or is it the other way around? Let's play with a thank you thoughtform to help you make practical use of these "profound truths." The picture is of your Spirit Party in full swing. Ishtar mounts a soap box and announces: "Time and space are relative but who needs a bunch of deadbeat relatives. Let's dance and enjoy our NOW and let it keep bringing the highest good to us all." Any time you're contemplating the past or future this picture will present itself to your mind's eye along with a Spirit Choir singing: "You Gotta Accentuate the Positive." Let the dimension shift concept slip in and help adjust your coordinate system to better and better metaphysical comfort. Wallow in it with us & keep winning.

CONTROLLING YOUR FRUSTRATION LEVELS
FOR GREATER EFFECTIVENESS
( A mini editorial by Al )

One reason I won't stand for "call waiting" is that to be effective I must give my full attention to one thing at a time. This is difficult at best for a Gemini like me but it's part of the discipline that our lovely Bast teaches as sternly as necessary. Similarly it's line up your tasks in the order of their importance and tackle ‘em one at a time - handle interruptions without frustration and keep on course regardless. This neat set of Bast taught disciplines has kept me out of trouble and moving onward and upward for better than 50 career years. But it still gets tested once in a while - like when you're on a major project and it keeps getting interrupted by the telephone. A while back I cussed the phone so well that it knocked out phone service in the whole City of Wills Point for about 2 hours. This was a good reminder of my pet phony Latin motto: "Illigitimi non carborundum" (phony translation: Don't let the bastards wear you down} That's the kind of humor that works for me to ward off frustrations. It's much better than knocking out a whole town's phone system.


It seems fair to share this one with you in a special thank you thoughtform. The picture is of Astral Al standing on his head and waving his feet with a banner that says ILLIGITIMI NON CARBORUNDUM. Any time your impatience/frustration level starts to build up dangerously this picture will present itself to your mind's eye along with that reassuring feeling - don't let the bastards wear you down. Stop to join us in a good laugh then go happily forward and WIN! The peace of mind you save will not only be your own but that of all around you. It works every time you LET it.

RENEWING YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH YOUR PERSONAL LEPRECHAUN
( A mini editorial by Al )

When your whole world seems to be slipping into the doldrums or something worse, it's a time to focus on JOY and making all your meditation and ritual times extra fun for you and for your Spirit Friends. Seems to me it's the 100th Psalm that starts out: "Make a joyful noise unto the Lord...." Sounds like especially good advice for any occasion. All of our magick is based on and powered by a love affair with Spirit and all Life, and it needs to be kept fresh and alive. Repetition of any ritual or procedure without variation becomes boring after a while, so we need planned "spontaneous" variations. Remember my response to the what's new question: "Me! I'm always new and exciting!" Now that's where your pet Leprechaun comes in. How long since you've teased and played with him? Mine has stayed perched on my right shoulder for a good 30 or so years and together we keep the humor pot boiling. This keeps a solid base for all our magickal "work."


All Lab Members have personal Leprechauns - assigned when you joined. They introduce themselves when or if they can get your attention. How about an intro renewal right now - relax and pat your right shoulder as you invite him: "Hey Mr Leprechaun hop up here and let's do renew our friendship and fun." It's easy to feel his presence and perhaps hear his wisecracks. I suggest that you try this introduction to start each of your regular meditation periods until the relationship is well established or firmly renewed. And let the spontaneous humor help to keep all of your spiritual/psychic/magickal endeavors fresh, alive and effective. ENJOY & WIN!

MAKING YOUR MEDITATIONS MORE FUN FOR YOU AND SPIRIT
( A mini editorial by Al )

It's important to let your sense of humor keep all your ritual/meditation activities Light and fun for you as well as for your Spirit Friends. Virginia and I have our morning meditation together and really enjoy making it fun. We basically start by using the electric Blue Light for cleansing of our auras and healing of anything that needs it. The chant is: "Blue Light, Blue Light, Blue Light, Blue cleansing soothing healing, too, sweeps away what don't belong in tune with this most joyous song." I was using it just twice but Spirit thought it should be three times, so they teased Virginia to ham up the second chanting: "Blue Light, Blue Light, Blue Light, Blue, Oatmeal, Raisins, Apples too, sweeps away what don't belong in tune with this most joyous song." That's our Saturday morning breakfast menu by the way. Anyhow we both cracked up laughing as did the Spirits in attendance. So now some sort of breakfast menu starts each morning meditation along with a strait 3rd chant. It helps us stay awake and upbeat.


Anything you can do to make your ritual/meditations more fun and uplifting will also make them more effective. Real off the wall humor is super good for this. Let's give you a nice jog with a reminder thank you thoughtform. The picture is of our morning Spirit Party at Astral Lab with Al starting the chant and Virginia chiming in with a breakfast menu. As you sit down to start your morning meditation this picture will present itself to your mind's eye along with something silly like "Oatmeal, raisins, apples, too" Let the mood of relaxed good humor give you and your Spirit Friends an nice boost of fun and so of effectiveness. ENJOY! It will help uplift you all into fresh realms of creativity and effectiveness.....

USING GOOD HUMOR FOR FUN AND PROFIT
( A mini editorial by Al )

It was about 40 years ago when Pan & Puck "talked" me into adopting their personal motto as my own: "If I can't have a good time, I ain't a'goin'" Of course it brings along the responsibility of taking your good times with you wherever you go.

It's particularly important to let your sense of humor keep all your ritual/meditation activities Light and fun for you as well as for your Spirit Friends. Virginia and I have our morning meditation together and really enjoy making it fun. We basically start by using the electric Blue Light for cleansing of our auras and healing of anything that needs it.

USING THE "GOOD BOOK" FOR FUN AND PROFIT
( A mini editorial by Al )

It's fun to Spoof people with sayings from the "good book" (The I Ching or Chinese Book of the Changes) like "Perseverance furthers" Or "Never run after a horse, if he's yours he'll come home." A good 45 years ago some friends and I were introducing a new mutual friend to the I Ching. He asked it a rather innocuous question about his future and got a line: "If one walks down the road alone he gains a companion. If three walk together, one must leave." He blurted out: "How the hell did that thing know about my mistress!" I'm still very skitterish about the fortune telling side of anything, but the I Ching does present a very good philosophy sort of sugar coated with the idea of peeking into the future. Still have mine handy although I seldom use it now because it's much more convenient to just sit down and chat with my Spirit Guides/Friends, but it's still good for self psychoanalysis as in "Never run after a horse."


Insight is probably the key word here although perspective fits well, too. Seems to me they call it Rhapsodomancy... but I tend to call it simply "book tumbling." I use my I Ching for this But a Bible, a dictionary or even the works of Shakespeare or Emerson is just as good. When you're perplexed or confused, the idea is to clearly formulate a question, then pick up your chosen book, close your eyes and rotate it any way you feel like, then drop it or just open it at random and read ‘till you get your insight. It seldom takes more than a couple of sentences. It's fun reminding you of this simple tool - beats hell out of medium hopping or Miss Cleo and is surely just as accurate. It will serve you well while you're learning to just sit down and talk it over with Spirit.

HEART CHAKRA MEDITATION
( A Guest editorial by Mike Manning )

Have you noticed that meditation on the heart chakra causes can opening of the heart, and an increase in the ability to love and to attract love into one's life? There is no instruction booklet for loving. It is not something you "learn" how to do, nor is it a habit you can develop if you try hard enough. Love is much more fundamental than any kind of thinking or believing.


Love, rather, is the root and basis of who you are, at the most fundamental level. This means that anything other than love as an expression of your being is artificial and unnatural and is a result of not knowing who you are. So why is the world filled with so much that is not loving? Very simply it is because many (most?) experience life and the world around them as an experience of separation, of being in opposition to outside forces that seem hostile in some way and from which one must protect oneself.


Stress (and all the behaviors that go with it) is one way these feelings of separation manifest. Stress is only possible when the world is viewed as hostile, when we want "what is" to be different than it is. As long as we are letting "what is" be whatever it is and are not attached to it being something different, we cannot be stressed. For most people this is much easier said than done.


One of the first things that people experience during their early weeks of meditation on the heart chakra is that things which bothered them and triggered anger, fear, depression or some other suffering state don't seem to bother them as much or even at all. This doesn't mean we can't act to change things to relieve suffering but it does mean we become less & less attached to our outline, we don't have to suffer if the outcome is different from what we thought we wanted it to be. Outcomes we were addicted to become simple preferences. This not only saves us a lot of pain but because we are acting to create change from a centered and calm place, we become more effective in actually making something happen instead of just venting and spinning our wheels.


Remarkably, the more we meditate the more we see the world in terms of the oneness and connectedness of all things and the less we see it as a place of tension, opposition & danger. When this happens our true nature as loving and compassionate beings naturally shines forth without any change in beliefs or any kind of intellectual changes.


So don't be surprised if you become less reactive, less stressed and more loving to yourself and to others as you meditate and use the Lab programs. They really do little more than uncover who you really are from under the various layers of illusions or separation you may have "learned.' The Lab helps take the dust off the mirror of your soul, one day at a time so you can more readily reflect the Light of the Love that makes up everything that exists. And if you have that, what more could you possibly need.


SELF HELP PROGRAM:

Focus on your heart chakra until you feel it responding. Then send the Green Light and love to one of your adversaries. Do this for only one adversary per meditation. This will be great Practice" for the times you really need it. Whenever you are in conflict with someone, immediately focus on your heart chakra and send Green Light & Love to them. You will be amazed at the great results. And it works to improve your family's loving relationships, too.

KEEPING YOUR SPIRIT PARTY FRESH
& ALIVE FOR CERTAIN VICTORY
( A mini editorial by Al )

Got a reminder from Spirt about our party renewals - We used to do it this way, but it kinda got lost in the shuffle. Here's how it oughta go: "Come one come all to my party. Come join in the joy and the fun. We'll eat, drink & play very hearty. Our battles are already won."


Then it's HAPPY PARTY RENEWAL! Somehow this ties in with our clean room idea of a vestibule for Astral Lab. The vestibule is where you ask for and accept the cleansing - "No caring, no doubts, fears or discouragement, no impatience, frustration or resentments. No seriousness. Just fun, love Joy, ectoplasm and enthusiastic serenity ever more delightfully shared. And it shares so nicely in the dance." Then "yes, we're dancing 'round the Maypole, our beautiful our wonderful Maypole, dancing with all our friends around the Maypole, it brings us fertility, abundance and delightfully enhanced wonderfully loving camaraderie."


Let's reactivate and enhance it all with a special thank you thoughtform. We'll let it set the positive tone for your whole day at each morning meditation. It starts with the song "Come one come all to my party..." Hear it humming in your ear at mediation time. And it will unfold a beautiful picture of your ongoing Spirit Party with the festivities in full swing. Play in the vestibule for the special cleansing, enjoy the Maypole dancing, then extend it to your Thoughtform poles - the ones for your special intentions. Dance around them, too and feel the many sweet victories - they will manifest for you on the material plane as well. And we give thanks for the joy of it all and for the fun. Love, success, prosperity, achievement and fulfillment it brings and we know it will keep getting ever better and better ever more wonderfully and with no upper limit.

KEEP A SONG IN YOUR HEART & WIN!
( a mini editorial by Al )
"A tingling Red from Nergal, a thunderbolt from Thor, a Moonbeam from dear Isis, while Puck plays by the door, now Pan & Bast are dancing & we all fill the floor. We're making super magick at TexLab ever more. - Ishtar leads the chanting while Marduk helps us say: we're making better magick every single day. With Light & Love & Laughter & Spirit fun galore, we're making Super Magick at TexLab evermore!"

This one is to the tune of the Wabash Canon Ball and it came from Spirit as a reminder that we all need to keep focused on the positive songs in our hearts. I use happy singing inside my head as a very easy way to get out on the astral for instance - it's also a super good way to relieve tension or stop it before it starts.

This or our little Silver Bells chorus (Thank you Pan, Abraxas, Bast. Thanks Ishtar, Puck, Thoth & Isis. Thanks Marduk, Nergal, Ra - all good things are coming my (our) way and only good things are coming my way.) is very helpful in maintaining a super upbeat approach to life, but remember we have many more...

Let me remind you also of our 76 Trombones celebration song: "76 neat Gnomes lead the big parade with 110 droll Trolls right behind. There's Pan & Puck & even Lady Luck, Nature Spirits of every shape and kind. 76 slim Sylphs greet the morning sun with 110 Undines marching tall. Salamanders, Gnu & Gronkydoddles, too join the fun that gaily fills the hall. 76 neat Gnomes bring prosperity with 110 Undines bringing love. I happily take my spot as the human of the lot and I know I'm blessed from above. 76 Cute Nymphs do the old CanCan with 110 bright Elves dancing, too. There is joy and Light as we dance throughout the night making magick that works for me & you." Do remember a few of your pet fun songs, too and use them OFTEN.

SPECIAL ANTIDOTES FOR WORRY
( a mini editorial by Al )
For years I've asserted a truism: We can heal any physical or psychological malady with a little metaphysical treatment while the patient remains in a completely stress free environment for 30 days. That of course is the rub - how do we get a stress free environment?

Many college medical departments have a sensory deprivation chamber, but it's not stress free because the patient brings the stress in with him. The key to healing and a strong immune system remains anxiety/stress reduction.

Metaphysical Antidotes for worry: traditionally it's that old song: "Take it to the Lord in prayer," but I prefer the metaphysical approach: "I place myself and all my affairs lovingly in the hands of the Father and His Ministering Angels (my wonderful Spirit Friends) with a childlike trust. That which is for my highest good shall come to me. That which IS my highest good comes to me NOW!"

Let's work on it together with a thank you thoughtform. The picture is of a mock New Orleans style funeral. We're all in white robes singing: "When the Saints go Marching In" and in the casket we see your most pressing worry. Enjoy watching it be lowered into a hole in the ground, symbolic of turning it over to Spirit. Feel a wonderful release as you honestly and happily do give it to Spirit as in our Gnostic sacrifice rituals.

We sacrifice the problem in order to receive its solution. Any time you're getting a bit too uptight this picture will present itself to your mind's eye along with the music and challenge to release. Sing with us, turn loose and let's get our divine solution now. It will work as often as you LET it.

THE DYNAMICS OF SUCCESSFUL LIVING
( a mini editorial by Al )

When I was about 12 my almost sainted grandmother (if she hadn't been so pushy she might have made it) took me for a walk and showed me two lawns. One was very neatly manicured, the other was pretty scraggly. She asked: " Which do you like best order or disorder?"

My immediate response was the disorder looked a lot easier to keep, but she knew that was just preteen age rebellion. So she taught me a little poem: "We are building every day in a good or evil way, and the structure as it grows will our inmost self disclose. Build it well what ere you do. Build high, build wide, build broad. Build for the eyes of God."

Amazing! That was 62 years ago and I still remember it. Today my pet version is: "It's not the best organized life that succeeds, but the least disorganized." And there really is an important distinction to be made here. As I've often said, to organize an idea is to kill it or at least pervert it, particularly in religion. Seems to me that the key word remains BALANCE.

We need a little warning bell to ring in our heads when we're heading way out of balance. Let's do it with a thank you thoughtform. The picture is of a brainstorming session at your Spirit Party. All manner of wild ideas are being bandied about then a bell rings that signals a return to common sense and you make the new idea(s)practical. Any time you're heading off in the direction of the ridiculous, or getting too stodgy, this little bell will go off in your head. You'll know instinctively whether it means rein it in or loosen up. I call this my bell of balance and share it with you happily. Let it keep you from straying too far off the middle path. But remember my interpretation of the middle path: "Moderation in all things, including the practice of moderation."
