“I met John about two years ago. I kept asking, “Why are all these strange things always happening to me?” John answered,” Stop always asking why and start living your life. I now catch myself, before I get into asking why, thanks to John. I’ve read a lot of self help books over the last thirty years. John’s book, Misconceptions and Course Corrections: A Collection of Critical Essays for Our Times, is one of the best New Age books I’ve read in a long time. John’s book was like breath of fresh air, forever nourishing my soul. John’s book shifted my consciousness. I feel it will definitely leave an indelible imprint on the minds of readers. I highly recommend this book for anyone who is interested in becoming an “enlightened being”.”- Jani, Florida
Four Stages of Denial
There are four stages of denial that we find ourselves in that keep us from making any meaningful preparations or change of heart and change of operating basis 1) It won’t happen. 2) If it does happen, it won’t happen to me. 3) If it does happen to me, it won’t be that bad. 4) If it happens to me and it is that bad, there’s nothing I can do to stop it anyway.
Optimist or Pessimist?
Ultimately, I am a long-term optimist but a short-term realist. I believe that love conquers all, and the light will shine, expose the evil, and overcome the darkness. However, I also feel we are living in a time where being a flippant, eternal optimist or the doom and gloom pessimist is not the most effective position to take. In fact, I believe that being a flippant optimist in the face of the harsh realities of the day can get you, and perhaps others around you, killed. In times like these, there is nothing smart or cool about being a short-term optimist; don’t buy it. Neither is denial or burying our heads in the sand. We might consider starting out by being a realist. Observe the obvious, trust but verify, practice critical thinking, question authority, question everything, and think for yourself. Surround yourself with people of like-mind who do indeed truly understand the times in which we live and expand those circles of relationships.
Being a realist can be challenging as one must first be able to recognize truth from something other than truth and this can be difficult as we are living in a bubble, a falsely created reality, a contrived and controlled world, strewn with lie after lie, concealed truths, half-truths and biased vested interests only interested in selfish gain and to assert control over the free-will of others. Am I resonating with you? Is this all making sense? “The pessimist complains about the wind; the optimist expects it to change; the realist adjusts the sails.” – Arthur Ward
If you are tired of spinning around in the hamster wheel called your life, then it’s time to look at who is spinning that wheel and what you can do to stop this circular insanity. You can change this, really you can. It’s time to adjust the sails, thus “Misconceptions and Course Corrections.” Disruptive, transformational and inspiring. This book challenges even the most awakened reader. Many of the conspiracy theories of yesterday have sadly become the conspiracy facts and realities of today. The present reality of the world we live in… now that is a conspiracy! Short video introduction.
