THE GOD RACKET by Anita Sands astrology@earthlink.net

When bills pile up, lovers leave, kids turn their backs, friends sue you in court there is a technology. When that ole, troubled feeling hits, don't worry cuz you have a real ace in the hole. You are the ultimate metaphysician and creator of all that comes your way, whenever you want to be. Don't forget or ignore your immense spiritual dimension. It's your magic resource. It is like a magical ROOM that will give you safety from this storm, all these little mini storms and refuge from any BIG storm. In it you will see that if you do not like what's happening? You can create better, and do it while in the magic room which you go into to refresh your own sense of being a 'chip' off the old block, (God, the Holy Father, Master of the Universe). You're no different. You are working your end of the turf on earth, to make it Godly. You go into that room to refresh that center and reaffirm, 'yes, I've made a Godly space here.' and you will come out of that session smiling, relaxed, giving your loved ones the sustaining affirmations that "it'll be ok" and lend them the authoritative quasi-parental power that you HAVE and which they need and proceed with a relaxed petition to 'let's work and clean our God space up today' without being an obnoxious taskmaster and making them all hate work.

You want that actual, verbal, God presence, the smiling, spiritual, relaxed person they love, suddenly affirming 'it's gonna be ok; we can make it ok if we do something fun: WORK. ' You want to get this ability to affirm, motivate, lead while you're young so that it becomes a pervasive part of your life when you're older and when you don't have that same, high body energy.

Leadership is about lighting the pilot within. That light and that power has nothing to do with money/job/standing in the community. A man could water the garden, cook the meal tend the baby while his wife worked and sleep on straw at night and still have that power.

This is a power that gets larger when you give chunks of it away. In the average month, you meet a lot of people and the idea is just to give them touches of your affirmation, your viewpoint, your leadership ability until someone sez, 'hey, you've made my life better, come work for us.'

Meanwhile the power and light that you give your friends, co-workers, or give to your family -- has to HAVE A SOURCE and it does. It comes from YOUR plugging into and CONNECTING with the primal cosmic energy through some little mind habit or ritual. Sounds like bubble gum metaphysics but I've seen how you can be suffering in the world, have some crisis right in front of you where you are just freaked, grieving, jealous, fearful, a MESS and you do a few minutes of power yoga, then hit one good minute period of nada, where you can sustain a peaceful mind and then while you're coming out of it, just say to the universe "any way you want, thank you God for the inner peace, and hey, could you give me this if you get a chance. You know, ask for you what you want, then get off it. Don't be a 'nudge'. Great and mighty Fathers of the Universe hate weeping frantic 'nudges' and never indulge them! "I want to marry Elvis! Puhleeze." Never happen.

To learn how to turn off the desirous, screaming, weeping, demanding mind, do Yoga for a minute or two next time you're having a fit of desire. In big cities, yoga classes are 10-15$ or there are Free Yoga Lessons online and at library in books. Both will do a fine job. Do searches at a good online search engine "FREE YOGA LESSONS". Use the breathing tech to get that little button on your dashboard lit. Learn where it is, how to turn the levers or press the buttons that make bliss your normal, operating mind gear.

In summer do your minute of yoga in the shade of some trees....as a regular daily thing. In Winter, spread a sheet on the carpet. Meanwhile, just sitting there, reading this, do what you've seen as the hyper-oxygenating done with A DEEP NOSE INHALE at the same time as a painful stretch is held...........and get the OXYGEN distributed in your body and the more you push with that hyperbaric level of auto-oxygenating, the more the oxygen gets to the pineal gland, a vestigal EYE deep in forehead area. Then when you're feeling the helium, affirm to your family members or to yourself. "You did the right thing." "It's gonna be OK" "I got a pretty nifty life." Soothing, convincing. That relaxed smile in you PROVING that your words are true.

The basic thoughts that sustain our PEACEFUL inner life in spite of our human, erratic habits IS: WHAT I DID WAS PERFECT (even if it never seems so to you, in retrospect) as it was the BEST I COULD COME UP WITH AT THE TIME. I learned from it. I now vow to do things from more centeredness, next time. I hope that I can be in my center next time when a challenge presents itself. To BE in that center, I will VOW to do my oxygenating, stretches and light up my inner eye MORE OFTEN. So that when challenges hit I AM READY. And, this upset today? I earned it, I caused it, I take responsibility. And if I created it, I can dissipate it.

We're all ROCKY. We're all in training. We all have to put in those minutes doing the homework, the work-out, the five finger exercises. So that we're ready to support, praise, affirm and show gratitude to our loved ones.

IF when you pronounce that things are going to be fine and that other pal fights you and sez, 'it's not ok, it's gonna be bad,' REPEAT your affirmation. Convince them. The magical ability to SPEAK or 'language' has a power of its own. You are God in your universe. And if you're strong enough, even in theirs!

Gods pronounce things to be so and they are so. You want to be in the God racket? Give security, support. Praise, affirm, show gratitude. If you've got mood swings, get more sleep. Take vitamins. People around you moody, stressy? Tell them to eat better, get more sleep. Remind them to make the vows to eat well, sleep well because the vowing is how it's done. Show them how things are done. Volunteer to be their healer and teacher. You're smart and strong. In fact, to prove it, give a back or foot rub and see what your magic can do. See that anyone depressed takes 240 mgs of kava kava, some valerian daily. Give them your bottle of capsules. Give them your B Vitamins. Give the combo of massage and herbs and take responsibility for helping remind them to ask for it again, and take it again until they start asking you, 'where are my Vitamins? my back rub?'.

You will enjoy having dependents. I know, til now you thought it was unpleasant. And it was hard before you got into the God racket. It's hard when some family member has decided YOU ARE responsible for their cure as "you were probably responsible for all the frustrations in MY LIFE!" That's what neurotics do. They try to pull that stunt on you. Refuse to buy into blame. DOUBT IT, SERIOUSLY. Know that this is their game and they're surviving by pulling that 'blame' stunt. Help them find a better way to think and work things out. It isn't true that OUR failures created their problems. Everyone came IN with their own messy habits, much of it from prior lifetimes. Don't let anyone put guilt in your direction. They own their own unhappiness. And you own yours, until you decide to bury it in the yard, under that tree where you do yoga. Hey, that's not a bad idea! Actually dig a hole, spit all your negative words into that hole, and say 'I bury that type of thinking forever. It's total manure so let it fertilize this fine tree.'

Peace isn't hanging there in the air free. You have to grow it, choose it. Love doesn't come automatically. We first must discard the blame and hate, exorcise the air, thusly creating an enviornment where love can grow.

Next we must CHOOSE the sweet fruit of love, plant its seed and water it. Ask God to give you a love deep enough that you can ignore the rocky parts of your relationship not try to control it out of existence. Tolerance is the only way to go. Smile while everyone goes on walking on one another. It's their choice. You only chose to love them and that love is the rosy Crucifixion you chose but as you walk the rocks, do NOT carry the suitcase of MIND loaded with 'I did, she did, they did, they didn't.' The endless litany of blame and irritation just makes YOU ugly and unlovable.

When they try to provoke you, pin you to a wall or challenge you, just say mentally, 'This too shall pass.' And smile and listen in rapt fascination while they growl and meow and bark. They will love you later for hearing them bleat out their pain while just holding their hand and maintaining sympathetic eye contact while they were perfect asses. You must wait for them to repent what they did -- on their own. You cannot spoonfeed repentance even if you're Billy Graham because it sounds like invasive guilt-making!

Handholding a badly behaving person reduces pressure in them amazingly and later they have the cognitions on their own dime, later --- hopefully. This phenomon is the basis of Art Janov's PRIMAL SCREAM, a useful part of your arsenal of mind tech which I call Tantrum Yoga --- It's about letting people vent their acting out, their anger or grief and just being a sympathetic sponge and then throwing the sponge away without a look backwards. It's just psychic junk. One doesn't go thru one's old kleenexes and make the poor feverish patient look at them later. No, it's the act of expelling that heals and that counts.

The cause of all pain is trying to create YOUR idea of reality and failing. The way we create, with games, lies, selfism, survival tactics --- agendas, mental tricks, manipulations is flawed. Can such struggles create what we're aiming for? The very act of desiring to create is flawed as the dark side of all desire is frustration. It may be that until we turn off the desire apparatus, we will live in a fifty fifty universe.

The wise Man says, "create but not with desire, absolutes or 'motives' of self. Create blissfully like a careless painter, splashing canvases just for fun, to make beauty. The attempt at creating work that's perfect, to gain massive power, applause and security is like trying to build something out of concrete so we can FLY.

DISCARD the concrete of desire. Try praying gently for things to happen. Pray for flowers to open, fruit to get ripe. Pray for easy stuff first. You want to get as light as you can get if you want to fly. Burn up the self. Discard memory of self. Forget that the locus of the Universe has a name. YOUR name.

The real locus of your universe is at your heart, and it is not you, it is GOD, and its creative magic could manifest through you and you could be a splashy painter creating universes, in the God racket if you would just get out of your own way. Get rid of any egoistic illusion that has name and fame cuz it will be lame. Ditch views, attitudes, judgements, opinions that separate you from others. Succumb to joining others, loving others more, thinking of yourself and your agenda less. Love those fools who the Big God put in your life --- unconditionally. No matter what sins and dumbness you think you see in them, remember God put them here because they were similar to you, having the same lessons and frailities. It's their road to walk anyway; don't imagine you can show them how to walk a single step of it. Free will is real important in the God racket.

So love them 'as is.' And if you can't, pretend you CAN. Proceed 'as if.' Assume the Pose. Fake it until you make it. Get the old you out of the room or the new big you isn't coming in.

That process of disappearing, SELF IMMOLATION and lunging into the Love is going to burn up your old ego and all the old bad karma it rode in on. When you are ash, you float in the wind! Humility is the airiest gear. No matter what they throw at you, if you're a cloud of molecules, it goes right through you.

And they will throw stuff at you. People aren't perfect down here. But don't let words crash into your ego molecules. Discard the ego and Sticks and stones may smack your bones but words will never hurt you. They will float through you, so will provocations, automatic reactions, identifying, tantrums, desires, nasty words, and old dusty ideas and beliefs ---even your own. Start now, de-atomizing yourself. (Cuz Gods don't have atoms just gamma rays or something, no atoms. Forget linear logic, bi-nominal brain thinking, automatic knee-jerk responses, remembered criticisms of others' limitations. Your new mantra is 'they are perfect. It is perfect.'

If you're not stuck in the here, you can be everywhere. You can lose yourself in the moment, in the scenery, the action. Affirming is like a pair of wings pumping. You're saying 'this is great. I'm lucky to be here. Wonderfull things are happening in this life opera, here. What a show!' And because you say it, you see it. Words have power.

And if you ever start to see the dirt on the tenor's bib, or see the make-up on the soprano and start to get cynical, remind yourself that instead of watching life's opera or reading this page, you could be in Rwanda where the Tutsis had just smoked your village and were about to eat your family. You have a pretty darn good life right now, so sing your happy lyrics and enjoy life's song! Believing your cup is full assures that it really gets that way. It is the law of Attraction.
