Summary

It’s the perfect marriage of wisdom and wit—here are 100 valuable lessons on how to live, drawn from 100 hilarious and unforgettable jokes. A really good joke, like a great poem, memorable song lyric, razor-sharp anecdote, or Zen koan, is a portal of discovery—it can get a meaningful message across in a way that’s clear, humorous, and practical. It’s the secret weapon of every great comedian—there’s the joke, and then there’s the subtext of the joke, and that can mean serious business. A funny, funny joke about a therapist and his patient conveys, for example, an important lesson on the power of communication. A surprising joke about a tribal shaman and the weather service turns into a necessary critique on how we should view experts.

    The Secret of Law of Attraction

    For years self-help gurus have taught about The Law of Attraction - the idea that you can get what you want simply by creating a clear mental picture of what you desire and using your imagination to see it with your mind's eye. It all sounds very tempting doesn't it - but is there really any such thing as the Law of Attraction or is it just a myth? There are many ideas, which have persisted throughout the course of human history, that have been blended to form the theory, so understanding it may take some time and research. However, because this 'law' essentially proposes you can achieve pretty-much anything you want simply by changing your thinking patterns, it remains one of the most interesting ideas to have been championed in recent years. Though the basic idea itself has come under attack from a number of sources, anecdotal evidence at least, suggests that some correlation between thoughts and future experiences might well exist on some level.
    This book provides an excellent introduction to the subject.

    Two people go to see a doctor. They both have the same illness. He gives the same treatment to both people. One person heals yet the other does not-why? Is it the doctor? The doctors gave the exact same treatment to both people! This is where it now falls on you the individual. One person took responsibility for their healing and they healed. The other did not and they didn’t heal. Life can and does teach us through sickness. Once you learn the lesson that the sickness is trying to teach you; the sickness goes away! I repeat once you learn the lesson that the sickness is trying to teach you; the sickness goes away! 
    A person can catch a cold or the flu during the winter months. But a person does not catch Cancer or Hepatitis or Lupus. These diseases and most major diseases manifest over various periods of time - not over night! If you are suffering from a major disease, your body has been crying out to you but you didn’t understand what it needed from you to be healthy. You do not yet understand the language in which your body was speaking to you. Now, you are about to embark on your inner journey of self-healing. You will discover how to become your body’s best friend and it will reward you with good health. As you begin to understand what your physical hygiene is, you will grow to understand your Mental and Emotional Hygiene and how important they are to maintain good health as well. All human beings have the power to heal themselves! If a child falls and hurts his/her knee they will immediately put their hand on the knee. If the child has a stomachache they will put their hand on the stomach. Instinctively, the child is placing his or her hand over the area where there is pain. By doing this the child is sending healing energy into their body albeit unconsciously. No one has to teach them to this, children do it naturally! 
    James was stricken with the virus of Hepatitis, first the A virus and then the B virus. James was then afflicted with the Hepatitis C virus which is a deadly killer! The doctors placed him on “Interferon” but all treatments failed. At that point, the doctors said he couldn’t be cured thus he needed to prepare his will and put his house in order. In other words, the doctors told him he was going to die. Yet today James is “Hepatitis Free”. The virus is not dormant. It is not in remission-it is gone! Today James has completely overcome the virus and is Hepatitis Free. Common Sense Healing is the methodology that gives the “Healing Mindset” that he discovered and is critical for the success of those people that doctor say have no hope. 
    James received a medical discharge from the core of U.S. Army doctors at Walson Army Hospital. He became interested in alternative healing methods because he had no other hope. James became a healer by practicing on himself out of necessity. He is a 5th degree Buddhist Healing Master and he has studied “7 Rays”, “Crystal Therapy” and “Sound Therapy”, “Laying on The Hands Light Technique” and has been deeply involved in Meditation over 38 years.
