The most merciful thing inrepparttar world, I think, isrepparttar 122220 inability ofrepparttar 122221 human mind to correlate all its contents. We live on a placid island of ignorance inrepparttar 122222 midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far. The sciences, each straining in its own direction, have hitherto harmed us little; but some dayrepparttar 122223 piecing together of dissociated knowledge will open up such terrifying vistas of reality, and of our frightful position therein, that we shall either go mad fromrepparttar 122224 revelation or flee fromrepparttar 122225 light intorepparttar 122226 peace and safety of a new dark age. - H. P. Lovecraft

"The other shape, If shape it might be call'd, that shape had none, Distinguishable in member, joint, or limb; Or substance might be call'd that shadow seem'd; For each seem'd either; black it stood as night, Fierce as ten furies, terrible as Hell, And shook a dreadful dart; what seem'd his head The likeness of a kingly crown had on. Satan was now at hand; and from his seat The monster, moving onward, came as fast With horrid strides; Hell trembled as he strode." -- John Milton


I have written many other books with all manner of reference and scholarship. It is about fifty books as I begin to write this book. There will be many questions about what an alchemist or sage is thatrepparttar 122242 reader will justifiably have after reading this offering. Perhaps I am not an alchemist andrepparttar 122243 title or label is of no great consequence to me, even though a decade ago people who should know what one is began telling me that is what I can be called. Time/Life videos called Jung an alchemist and if he was then I am too.

This book will not be a well-referenced book with lots of quotes seeking to prove points through evidence. It will be more free-flowing and integrative just as alchemy is. That is not to say alchemy is not very patient and detailed or that this book will avoid anything. It is just that I have already gone into great detail on most things and it is a good idea to address things with broad strokes occasionally too.

Focus, Your Body, and Your Physical Well-Being

Written by John Cali

About a week ago, on a beautiful early winter day, I was out jogging inrepparttar foothills south of my house. The morning air was clear, cold, and crisp, andrepparttar 122219 deep blue sky was sparkling with golden sunlight. The gentle hills around me,repparttar 122220 rugged mountains inrepparttar 122221 distance, andrepparttar 122222 valley far below me were covered in a glistening white cloak of new-fallen snow. My kind of day--I love winter, and I was in heaven!

About a mile into my run, my euphoria was suddenly shattered by a sharp stabbing pain in my left ankle. It hurt like hell!

Overrepparttar 122223 years a number of people about my age have told me they had to quit jogging because it was too hard on their bodies. Specifically, their ankles, knees, and backs. But Ive never bought into that mind set, and in almost 40 years of jogging, Ive had no problems.

And, I thought to myself, I wasnt willing to start having problems, not after all those years. So I continued jogging along, andrepparttar 122224 pain kept getting worse and worse. Asrepparttar 122225 pain intensified, so did my focus on it.

Thenrepparttar 122226 light came on, and I remembered what Id heard from Joseph and others overrepparttar 122227 years--you always get more of what you give most of your focus to.

So I took my focus off my left ankle andrepparttar 122228 hot, searing pain. And I focused on my right ankle, which was strong and healthy.

Literally within about three minutes, my left ankle was fine. The pain was gone. So I continued on for my usual distance. The pain never returned.

Now I realize this was an extremely minor disorder, especially compared torepparttar 122229 hefty health challenges many of you have shared with me overrepparttar 122230 years.

Butrepparttar 122231 principle is stillrepparttar 122232 same, whether were talking about minor or major physical problems. Or, for that matter, anything else--money, abundance, relationships, jobs-- you name it. You get what you focus on.

Chief Joseph

Well, it seems were back once again on this issue of focus. You get what you focus on. You create your reality by what you focus on most ofrepparttar 122233 time. Were sure we seem, to many of you, to be beating this subject to death.

But its such an important subject, and one you must understand and accept if you are to createrepparttar 122234 life you want for yourselves.
