• Stalking Insects

    I took Landmark Education years ago and I recommend their forum for everyone. One of the great things they taught us, if you want great people around you, you have to treat them as if they are great. This goes for interviews, strangers on a train, the IRS, police, bosses, spouses, family, everyone and every encounter. How do you treat everyone as being great?

    I know I repeat myself but it is important. First we see ourselves as being great. This means complimenting ourselves all the time. Gee we look great, we feel great, that was a great thing we just did. We are fearless, how great. I use the pronoun we, because we are made up of trillions of cells. Once we do this automatically for ourselves, we automatically do it for others.

    A story

    I became a sailor while finishing the last course of Landmark Education. At that time I thought most men were either inept or assholes, however the course leader said to give 100% commitment to make all men great and they would be. My yes sir, no sir, doing as ordered sir, failed to cover-up my real attitude. Still I persevered. Then one day, sailing as crew on the fourth yacht, the captain came up on deck, stood by the railing and said, "You think I'm an asshole." 

    I was reading a book and without looking at him said, "No, I don't." Of course I did but I would not give in.

    He refused to take no for an answer, "Yes you do."

    "No I don't."  This continued until I knew I had to say something. I slowly put my book down and turned to look at him. I opened my mouth and what came out shocked the both of us. "You are not an asshole. You can kill yourself, destroy this boat but you are responsible for my life and that makes you crazy. You think I will be a better sailor, if you yell at me and make me wrong all the time. There is only one way I will be a better sailor and that is if I want to be and I will be a great sailor."

    I turned back to my book and pretended to read. He became great and I became an exceptional sailor. In a few years, I skippered my own sloop in the South Pacific and the South China Sea.

      What's up? I come here often and you have not written anything for months now. Your writing style is witty, intelligent and right on. Please keep up the good work! I do have some favorites and re-read them but they need to be expanded. These posts are teasers and we want more.

      Thanks and you are right all the posts are teasers and could be expanded. I am thinking of doing some videos where I would expand the subjects further. Love, Oracle Jai

      I seldom comment, however I browsed a few of the comments on We are Great, perfect, just the way we are and always have been. I actually love the story and am looking forward to more stories. I think real life occurrences tell it better than a lecture. You have the knack. Are you posting on other online social sites, I would like to keep up with you? Would you make a list of all of all your social community pages like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or LinkedIn profile? Thanks.

      Thanks for your comment. I only publish here on my site. I do not have the inclination or time to put my comments everywhere. Come here, it is pretty, pleasant and the sounds of the river and birds are really lovely. Love, Oracle Jai

      Appreciate this post. Will try it out. I have a lot of assholes, jerks and bitches in my life. Sounds like fun to change them all into friends. Thanks for the heads up.

      Thanks for commenting. Our definitions are all based on our opinions. Once our opinions change and become positive, all the negative people and things also become positive. After all everyone wants to be considered great. Wish our parents thought we were great kids. Love, Oracle Jai

      Ahaa, nice story. We do need to be great. There are many alternatives to gasoline energy. Solar, water and wind. Wow, natural processes that create energy. We must see our folly and declining health due to gasoline power.  We must get it right before we go to war just to keep the big corporations in business till the last person dies. 

      I love your site and the way you tell it like it is. Great internet for it is the only place the truth can be told. Of course there are a lot of lies, BS and illusions here as well but still it is better than depending on society's normal channels for lies and not reporting what is detrimental to our existence. Thanks for speaking up and in such a beautiful blog.

      Thanks for your comment and mentioning alternatives to gasoline fuel. We need to use these resources and as you point out, remove the forces that continue to kill all life on the planet just for their insane lust and greed. Even poor underdeveloped countries are imitating the rich and powerful. Here's to the end of ignorance and greed, Love, Oracle Jai

      I really love your website.. Excellent colors, theme, design and sound. Did you build this web site yourself? I read several of your posts and loved the story on We Are Great. It is nice for a change to hear someone say that. I want to believe it. Your site is great. I’m planning to create my very own blog and would like to know where you got this form from or exactly what is the name of the theme. Many thanks!

      My site no longer looks like the theme or design we used. You are on your own. Let your genius shine thru those clouds of doubt. You can create a site that expresses you, or is that what you fear? Hahahahah. Love yourself unconditionally! Just go for it. It is possible to change as you change. I have altered most of my posts over time and I believe they are clearer for it. Love, Oracle Jai

      I would like to thank you for the efforts you've put in writing this web site. In fact your creative writing abilities has inspired me to get my own web site going now. Really blogging is spreading its wings and growing rapidly. Your write up is a great example. We are great is perfect and trusting ourselves is very inspiring. In fact all your blogs encourage us to do our thing. Thanks so much.

      Thank you for participating. Do your thing and be happy, healthy, safe, wealthy and play life in fun. Love, Oracle Jai

      Great blog here! Also your site loads up fast! What host are you using? Can I get your affiliate link to your host? I wish my web site loaded up as quickly as yours lol

      I see you are a lawyer in Australia is it? I would like to see more doctors, lawyers and Indian Chiefs come to this site. It used to be in the US that molested girls were considered to blame because they provoked the assault, so they would not come forward. Now the courts realize that is a miscarriage of justice. However there is truth there. Bullies and victims are two sides of the same coin. Both victimized as children by their parents and they are attracted to each other. We need to have people stop having children.

      Can you defend that? We are so overpopulated we destroy what keeps us and the planet alive. Crime is only a symptom. This has become critical and no one is addressing the issue. Thanks for coming and making a comment. Love, Oracle Jai

      I wish to express my admiration for supporting people who require help thinking they are great as great as those greatly admired. Your personal commitment to passing the solution to all of us will surly allow guys just like me to attain that paradise. Your personal valuable facts means so much a person like me and still more to my peers. Many thanks; from everyone of us.

      I want to express my admiration of you for taking time to comment on my blog. Remember any goal or pursuit you have now was born in a person trained to fail to achieve their desires. Let them go and be guided by your new you that cherishes you. What you pursue now will be the real Mac Coy. Love, Oracle Jai

      This site looks fantastic. I have the benefit to explore your craft and learn a bundle. I want to use a lot more words of flattery, I’m so completely happy to see the mountains, the sea and hear the rivers and birds. I have the time to read the  information you have, relaxed, happy in my feelings and mind. Thanks for the informative posts. Unfortunately my friends are hesitant to educate themselves  regarding their joy, love and health. They have a problem believing that is the way to having plenty of money. They believe in being poor and struggling. I would appreciate your feedback about this problem with my friends.

      Thank you for your comment and question. When you believe your friends are great, they become great. When you believe you are rich your cells give you wealth. When you believe you have perfect health, your cells give you perfect health. How do they do this? You are giving all of you a directive to make you great, healthy and rich. They have to do this and they know everything, so they can.

      When you are rich in your thoughts, you never ask how much something costs. You buy what you want. Money will just come to you, perhaps from work that you love, others need and no one supplies it. When you are healthy, you will learn to eat healthy food. Most people are sick because they believe they should be sick and in pain and so eat food that will make them sick. People have been eating dangerous food for thousands of years. You will be different. I have two blogs that will begin your journey to Perfect Health.

      Your example will prove that this is the way to have all you want. Your friends are waiting for you to prove it. Remember change is personal, you cannot change another and trying just makes others resist. Did you ever wonder why such a popular man as Jesus was murdered and his words never followed? He taught another way of thinking, feeling and being and everyone to this very day resists his teachings. Unfortunately the preachers made him the son of god and told the rest of us we could never be, so we could only adore him and give our money to the church. Of course girls were left out totally! Love, Oracle Jai

      Very efficiently written story, short, riveting and to the point. It will be useful to everyone for even if a person decides, for whatever reason, not to employ it, they will succumb anyway. That is the way with truth. It is contagious. Trouble is there is so little of it. Keep up the good work!

      Thanks for the riveting comment and you are correct. Once exposed to the truth, it is difficult to deny it. Love, Oracle Jai

      I notice that traditional medical doctors are recognizing the increased interest in holistic healing and are lastly starting to incorporate these healing methods into their practice to keep up with the current trends.

      Current trends, like what really causes diseases and how to really cure them. I think they have a ways to go. We cause our diseases in order to cure our screwed up lives. Once we cure our life, the disease cures itself. Love, Oracle Jai

      100% HOT ! I really love this blog. We are great, I would like to think so. From now on I will act as if we are all great and see what happens.

      When we act great, even if we start out acting the part, is soon becomes the way we are and people show up as great. It really is worth the effort, Isabel. Love, Oracle Jai

      As web site possessor, I believe the content matter here is rattling magnificent. Appreciate your efforts, skill and expertise. You should keep it up forever! Good Luck and I will be back often to read more. I am a fan.

      Appreciate your effort to let us know how you feel about what you have read here. I need all the fans I can get. We must become positive now, there is so little time. Love, Oracle Jai

      Wonderful story, so men are not assholes anymore? That is a relief. However, how do we change our opinions. For instance the Middle East has got many more problems than we do.

      Everyone has too many problems and it all goes back to the stupid thinking that some things and people are wrong, bad and ugly. When we become adults we take responsibility for what we cause, intentional or not.  Every animal pulls it weight and does its job otherwise it dies. Communism failed because of the slackers and those that thought their contribution was better. All governments fail because they are people who do not want to share the power. We want it all for ourselves, even if that causes our own extinction.

      If we are to survive, we have to reduce our numbers to one or two million world wide. We will live in small communities and the community will decide what to do with the unfit, uncooperative and irresponsible. We will cooperate and live in harmony with the natural way of the earth and universe or go for extinction all over again.

      We need to love ourselves unconditionally and then we will be capable of loving others. It is personal. If we try to get others to change, they resist. Time for you to be cherished. Love, Oracle Jai

      Thank you for sharing fantastic information on how to be great and see everyone in your life great.  Your site is extremely cool. I'm impressed by the information that you have on this blog. It reveals how nicely you perceive this topic. Bookmarked this internet web page, will come back for much more articles. You, my friend, ROCK! I could not find anything like it on the internet. What an incredible net site.

      Thank you for the comment. Remember we must see ourselves as great first otherwise it does not work. Until I heard why my captain was great I was not great enough, although I could keep myself safe in a hurricane and at other times. I became great when I understand why everyone is great. It is personal. Love, Oracle Jai

    16. Nitya says:

      Good Stuff, This message, this idea that we are great because we can be no other way to be and we make others great just by seeing them that way, needs to be spread around. Do you have a MySpace account?

      Thank you for your comment and I do not have time to keep MySpace, twitter, Facebook and all that ilk going. Love, Oracle Jai

    17. Gerard says:

      Good day I am so delighted I found your blog, I really found you by mistake, while I was researching something else, Regardless I am here now and would just like to say thank you for a remarkable post and a all round interesting blog (I also love the theme/design), I will be a frequent visitor and participant. I can see that I will gain a new joyous, loving life by following your advice. Thanks so much.

      Thank you for accidently coming here and deciding to stay a while and read. We must be positive, the sooner the better. Love, Oracle Jai

    18. Kate says:

      Your greаt intriguing blogѕ keep me coming heге again anԁ agaіn. thank you a great deal. I love your stories. Sailing on your own boat. Were you alone or did you have crew? Kate.

      Thank you so much Kate. I was by myself but always sailed with a crew. It was easy to find someone who wanted to sail in most ports. We are glad you keep coming back to read more. You can now register on the left side bar. Thanks, Love, Oracle Jai.

    19. Felipe says:

      Excellent post, very informative. I wonder why people never think of these things. To want great people around, say the boss, just keep thinking he is great and he will be. To be great, know we are great. Seems easy. But I can tell from your story it takes a while and effort. You must continue your writing. I am sure, you have a huge readers' base already! Felipe

      Thanks Felipe for your comment and understanding. I am pleased that we have more visitors every day and many comment. If you register you will get the announcement when I publish a new post. Love, Oracle Jai

    20. Sophia S. says:

      I have been checking out a few of your stories and it's really great stuff. I love your personal stories to illustrate your point. I will definitely keep coming back to read more. I like the idea of treating everyone as if they were great, including me. I am great by treating everyone as being great. It is a good start. Thanks a million.

      Thanks a million for leaving a comment. You are great and I am so glad you will make others great. It is surprising the response you get. Please take the time to watch Dr. Emotto's work on water and remember how easy it is to change a person's attitude in the moment. Love, Oracle Jai

    21. Dusty says:

      An interesting post that we are great and perfect. Hard to believe, I know so many that would not fit those words but that is my opinion. What about all the criminals in jail? They are great and perfect as well? I understand they are the way they were raised to be but that was to be a criminal right. How is that good? Thanks for the view point. Maybe in a perfect world.

      The world and universe is perfect and if we decide to see it that way and follow the natural, perfect laws of the universe, we would know we are perfect as well. Unfortunately the human made up the words imperfect as if something was wrong. It is up to us to change and see everything as perfect, even those we have labeled criminals. After all the perfect government and religions kill and we accept that. What is the difference? Love is what we need now, unconditional Love, Oracle Jai

    22. Google says:

      This is another post I really like. We really are great if we see ourselves that way. Your comment that you became an incredible sailor attests to that.

      Thanks for reading one of my favorite. That was the beginning of really seeing others as great and me as well. Love, Oracle Jai

    23. Jovan says:

      Extraordinarily educative thanks, I believe your trusty readers may well want even more information on just how great they are, especially now with our extinction looming just before us. We are trapped by needing money and that is controlled by the 1% elite.  Carry on the wonderful effort.

      Thanks for the comment and the next post is about the money game and how to stop playing. I am still studying it. Love, Oracle Jai

    24. Christi says:

      It appears like you have thoroughly analyzed the details as to why we are all great. Love the story and wish I was sailing. I'm in total admiration for everything that you wrote and look forward to the rest.

      Thanks for your thorough and thoughtful comment. You got it. We are all great, to think otherwise is to bring down disaster on all of us. Love, Oracle Jai

    25. chemise says:

      This blog has got a lot of extremely useful information on it. Thanks for sharing it with me!

      You are welcome. Love, Oracle Jai

    26. Marshall says:

      I would hope that I'm healthy in both mind, body, and spirit. I might adore to travel the entire world with my friends and family. That would be charming.

      We are all great and it is a wonderful thing to do. I however went alone and picked up crew as I sailed. I loved it and learned what I knew so I could write it. Love, Oracle Jai

    27. Ezequiel says:

      Awesome article and straight to the point. Have you written any books for you definitely have that professional touch? In fact you must make this blog a book. Thank you. Ezekiel

      I hope you are a profit for I am thinking along those lines. Thanks for the compliment. Love, Oracle Jai


    28. Rico says:

      Wow, amazing blog structure! How long have you been running a blog? You make it easy to glance at your list and find what I am looking for. The overall look of your website is great, let alone the content material, which is also great! Rico

      Thanks Rico, for that great comment. I have been blogging for around 7 months. It took three months just to rebuild the site after it crashed. I love the list, pictures, now the sounds, what I write. Hey my life is about having fun. Keep coming back, register on the left side bar and be sure you post your comments on the post of your choice. Love, Oracle Jai.

    29. Tommy says:

      Congratulations to author. Great information and easy to select what I want to read. I was drawn to find out why I was great, since that is not the opinion I have of myself. I don't know anyone else that thinks I am great. Well, maybe my girlfriend. Now I know if I want to be great, I have to see me as great. Thanks for telling me this. Tommy

      Thanks Tommy. You are great, we all are, we just fail to see it since we were not considered great when we were little. We have a registration on the left side bar and I will contact you when I put up another post. Love, Oracle Jai.

    30. Shon Harpe says:

      Thanks a lot for putting this post up, it is truly terrific! I am going to try seeing people as great and remember they are what they are. Shon

      It really works but I must say remember that you draw people in your life to prove you are right. If you change your beliefs that changes your behavior and people will respond differently. In my story I attracted assholes or inept men into my life because they proved I was right. Only when I heard my voice admire the last asshole was I able to get it that I was responsible for how others behaved toward me. That same captain became great in my perception. Love, Oracle Jai
