Don’t Worry Be Happy

Perhaps you have seen a Meher Baba poster stating Don’t Worry Be Happy.  You possibly thought it was a cute saying or maybe some quote Meher Baba just thought of.  Last month  at a  monthly gathering we discussed the meaning behind those words.

Don’t worry, what does that mean?   As defined by the New Oxford American Dictionary worry is a state of anxiety and uncertainty  over actual or potential problems.  Worry could be from never having love or support from a family member;  continued problems with money, relationships, work, etc.  When one worries, the belief is something will go wrong based upon past experiences.

Lets now look at the definition of happy (happy with) or satisfied with the quality or standard of:  When you are happy you trust yourself and life.  Even if something does not happen the way you thought it would, does not mean “you did something wrong or there is something wrong with you. “It was important to just  let go and not be attached to an outcome.  When a person  lets go, he or she  is not attached to an outcome, hence worry dissolves.  

I have been meditating on Meher Baba’s quote for a month now.  Worry is the mind, happy is the heart .  As I breath in I inwardly say to myself  “don’t worry and picture Meher Baba. On the out breath, I inwardly state be happy and picture Meher Baba in my heart.  For me this means Meher Baba is involved in the outcome of whatever I am concerned about.  Hence when I worry, I immediately let go of a result or worry.  It can be God, a Spirit Being. Angel, someone on a higher vibration.

Its not easy to get rid of worry, it takes courage and commitment but if you do………………:)

The airplane experience, continued

Together we assisted who most needs us.  Without exception they were all deeply shocked by their abrupt death, and apart from the pilot all were unable to come to terms with being so-called dead.

How can I be dead? One man wailed in a quavering tone.  I’m here, standing up, unhurt. How can I be dead?”  Not all  registered their shock in words. Two men sat side by side, staring at each other in stunned silence.

I will continue the story without excerpts from Michael J Roads book, Journey Into Oneness. Michael’s Guide asked him how are you going to let the people on the plane know they had died since they would not believe you. Each person, except for the pilot believed they had not died.  All nine were in a hospital.

To make a long story short.  Each person arrived at an etherial hospital.  Each survivor had  their room decorated the way they had envisioned it to be.  A hospital room is uniform, with same colors and look.  Michael pointed out how each room, unlike a hospital on the Earth was different, which got their attention.  This stirred their consciousness with  possibility tthey actually died.  Soon afterwards, Michael invited them to open a door where each would see a relative or friend who had passed.  Each person then without doubt excepted they had died from the plane crash.

I would encourage you all to purchase Journey Into Oneness by Michael J. Roads to obtain insight into karma and the  afterlife.

Journey Into Oneness, by Michael J Roads

The Airplane Experience

This is an excerpt from when Michael  J. Roads  asking his guide about life after death.

……..with no warning I was in a light aircraft (Michael).  I felt as though I were physical, for I had my own seat, and the engine noise and vibration were as large as life.  When I pinched myself, I was shocked that I could feel it.  Despite this I could feel a degree of calm and clarity and perception that transcended my normal physical reality.

The engine cut out.  I heard the pilots voice  over the intercom, but his words were drowned by the pounding of my own heart.  When following a muffled explosion, a large piece of metal tore away from the front of the aircraft to dance across the outside of my window.

People screamed and I smelled the offensive stink of fresh vomit.  With the other passengers, I followed the well established drill of getting my head down.  The scream of a dying aircraft drowned all other sound as it hurtled toward the earth, tearing at my eardrums.

This is it! Nobody would survive,  One moment the scream of tortured metal filled all dimensions of space and sound; then came  the most profound and absolute silence.   Everybody on the plane had made a transition from physical life – to what?  Without exception, they were  all deeply shocked by their abrupt death, and apart from the pilot all were unable to come with so called death.

In my own words………..The people had difficulty believing they had died.  It was up to Michael J. Roads to help them in their transition.

The Aliens

There was a time in my life, living in Seattle, WA,  I would meditate and connect with  Spirit Guides.  There were many Guides but none were aliens. One evening as I sat in my chair, the same chair I use to meditate on, seven Aliens were standing against the wall.  Their skin was yellow and looked to be close to six feet tall. and they had what looked like a gray type jacket and pants.   At first I was scared and said  “if you are not here for my highest learning and growth, leave.  I also repeated Meher Baba’s name and they still remained.

Since they would not leave nor communicate with me, I decided to meditate and try to communicate with them.  I asked why they showed up.  They said,  we are  here to teach you toning.  Toning  is using sound to heal the physical body.  I bought several books on Toning and used it on some of my clients with mixed results.

On another occasion, while doing hypnosis on a client one the Aliens showed up but did not interrupt the process nor say anything.  That Alien left before I finished nor did I experience them ever again.  As I look back on this experience I believe they were  just to check me out and not necessarily to teach me  anything.

I had also encountered three nine foot Beings who showed up while providing a class on past life regression or Spirit Guides.  I remember getting chills up  my arm when they arrived.   They were from the Planet Venus. They had some kind of what seemed to look like scarfts or something akin to that.  They wore garments which were the color red.  Again these three Beings  were curious and wanted to check out what I was doing.  I did not think they were Aliens since they looked  like humans but of course they were not.

My personal feelings about aliens, they are of a different vibration and are close to our Earth’s vibration which makes it easier for them to enter into our field.  There are good Aliens, bad Aliens, and those who are neutral.

I begin with excerpts from Testimony of Light by Helen Greaves.

As a man thinks so is he istrue in essence, truer then our ideas can conceive.  By  man’s thoughts and inspirations he weaves for himself his future place.

Our Nazi patient is still the same; inert, motionless, shut up in the shell of himself.  Father Joseph tells me that the poor creature might be like this for what we would say on earth, many years.  He has already been held i the dark bondage of the hell of his own making since the endow the last war, and that is over twenty years ago.  (I  am fast losing count of time as we knew it on earth.)  Things “happen” here souls or entities at all the lower stages of progress come and go; we either leave or  we stay, but we do not reckon these events intimate.

We live, or we exists according to the level of our thought-life; some are content to stay, thinking no doubt that this is the final stage.  Some souls settle down in one stage for years…..even centuries.  While others press in their former earth surroundings for ages.Our Nazi then may lie like this long after many of the patients helpers and servers here have  graduated to the Higher Spheres.

As I remember the Nazi spent a multitude of time in darkness and pain for the atrocities he committed.  The woman whom he killed had to learn forgiveness.  As I wrote recently there is no escape from karma.  We have to suffer or experience joy based on what we have done in our earthly life.  It is so important to forgive first yourself and then others who have done you wrong.  People who have a life of greed, power, anger will have to play back their journey when they pass on and  take another life with suffering.  There is no escape!

There are three things people want from others.  The need to be liked, accepted, and affirmed.  In the early 70’s I was  Head Counselor for boys eighteen and younger in a group home.  I was put in that position  without proper training simply because I was next in line.   When interviewing new hire,  I would ask what does love mean to you?  That person would be hired based upon the answer.

I was also somewhat new to following Meher Baba as my Master or God.  In fact, I purchased Don’t Worry Be Happy posters and gave each of the 18 boys one.  After returning from a weekend, I found all 18 posters on my door.  I later found out the administrator had hit one of the kids………………………..

Also, I was in need of control, and did not give ample latitude to my staff.  Eventually they all turned on me.  In the beginning I was liked but after six months or so I was disliked and not accepted. 

After leaving the position as Head Counselor I traveled to India to visit Meher Baba’s Tomb (he died January 31, 1969) and living disciples.  While there I  met a couple of Australians who shared a story about a recent typhoon.  Part of the dialogue had to do with toilets and such.  I over heard someone who must have been listening to our conversation state “all he knows is shit and piss.”  I was devastated by someone criticizing me.  I soon went to Meher Baba’s Tomb and asked why someone who did not know me, “put me down.”  After what seemed a long long time, Meher Baba internally answered  “I need to let go of praise and blame.”  Wow, what a concept.  From that moment on I learned to be detached from both.

So many people look outside themselves for the reflection of  who they are.  Yes, it is nice to be liked, accepted and affirmed but inevitably someone will come along and judge you.  Eventually each person must like, accept, and affirm themselves no matter how  viewed.  Until that happens that person will never be truly whole.  A hint, “your inner child holds a key.”
