http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-qTiYA1WiY8What a powerful story of acceptance and making the most of what we are given. Patrick is a reminder of the power of spirit working through all forms of limitations, which we all have in this three-dimensional world. But what Patrick has been given to help foster his abilities is the power of a loving dedicated family. His father, and all that he gives to his son, is a model of an ideal householder. Patrick's story is also a reminder that in a country such as how Nazi Germany was, with a goal to create the perfect race in a Darwinian model of evolution, instead of a spiritually-based view that all children should be celebrated due to the fact of how hard it is to achieve a human birth, Patrick would not have been given a chance.

The power of purpose and music. This video moved me a lot. Unless we are free of our conditioned minds we are all imprisoned. It is just those who are behind bars that we can point to and say how bad they are. However, Heaven includes all and is closed to each one of us when there is one brother who is excluded from our hearts. Let us not forget our selves struggling and bless one another.
How wonderful. It is great that one of such a celebrity status wakes up to his true nature so others can hear that it is not the goals of the world that brings us to our happiness, to the end of our suffering. It is only waking up to knowing who we are not.
When I was a tarot reader at the Bodhi Tree Bookstore in Hollywood, as a young man I had the opportunity of giving such people readings. And it was readily apparent that no matter what one attains--fame, money, the beautiful partner--if you don't know yourself there is no happiness, only moments of pleasure with the fear of knowing it will quickly pass with the next threat. May all hear Jim's message.
