Overcoming Obstacles

Rebekah Clark Dunlap

Once upon a time, on a glorious day, a mythical King reviewed his vast kingdom and felt quite benevolent. His wise men had recently extolled the virtues of being a good giver and receiver as an absolute opportunity to lay up treasure in the heaven-world of the gods. Having decided to put the principle into practice, the King called one of his bravest soldiers to come before him and be rewarded for outstanding duty performed. As the old soldier knelt before the throne, a servant placed in front of him a magnificently engraved golden bowl. One glance assured the old soldier the bowl was the creation of a master craftsman and worth a fortune.

The King, gesturing for the soldier to accept the bowl, said, "Brave man, receive this gift as a symbol of my appreciation for your courage and great dependability on the fields of battle."

Overwhelmed with the immensity of what was happening, the soldier slowly dropped his head and whispered, "Oh, no, Your Majesty! I cannot accept such a treasure. Truly, it is too great a gift for me to receive!"

The King stroked his beard in contemplation for a moment, looked at the bowed head before him and gently replied, "Perhaps, my good man. But please remember that it is not too great a gift for me to give!"

The soldier, looking at the gift from his personal consciousness, felt that the value of the golden bowl far exceeded his idea of personal self-worth. The King's wisdom, however, taught the soldier to look at life's complete picture.

Your radiant inner light is like the golden bowl, magnificently created by a master craftsman and shining in all it's beauty. You are the soldier. The Creative Source is the wise King. A tremendous gift is offered to you. The gift of life with all its abundance and adventure. Are you willing to accept it? Or will you respond, "Who me?"

Notes & Thoughts By W. G. Black Ph.D. - Founder of Gakati'yi


I've always loved the sound of "Casa Grande," in Spanish. At the same time I reluctantly say that I have some aversion to the phrase "Casa Grande" in Americanese. The Spanish version is melodious and beautiful to me. The city of Casa Grande, Arizona, is about 50 miles south of Phoenix. Mountains can be seen in most directions from it; the City itself is rather flat and plains type land. It's a beautiful setting, especially if you are farsighted. Thom Kelley and I had the good fortune of being hosted on Valentine's Afternoon and Evening by a wonderful being known as Larry Porter who has lives in Casa Grande.

Larry and his lovely wife, De, have been in business there a long time. A storm several years ago destroyed everything and played a role in the evolution and development of the beautiful Growth Center/Gift-Book Store they have recently opened there. Several of us from Phoenix attended the open house several weeks ago, and Thom and I returned for a more extended, personal visit for Valentine's Day. What an adventure it turned out to be in exploring the Heart! Larry has been devoted to personal and spiritual growth forever, we might say, and the visit easily turned into that format on this occasion. Sherman and Ginny Scott were there by the strangest of "coincidences." They are friends of Larry's for a long time. Being around eighty years of age, they added wisdom, support and stories of their own spiritual growth which enriched the evening greatly. Another unusual addition to the evening was for Thom Kelley to lock his keys in his car for the first time in thirty years. Earlier in the day he had met an important person who had been connected to a locksmith for a long time. We are still working on this one. Impressions, intuitions and interpretations are welcome. As one enters the Arizona Center for Relaxation, everything says, "Welcome, relax and make yourself comfortable." Beautiful posters, wall hangings, placards and paintings or prints thereof abound. In the large meeting room are hanging framed, favorite sayings, wisdom of the ages, growth stimulator, growth supporters and comforts for the pains and challenges of life, especially the life of those who are on The Road Less Traveled of Scott Peck, M.D.

Larry Porter's dream is manifesting, and I felt a strong desire to assist in any way that I could. I felt guided to share some of my history and abilities with him. It turned into quite a session. We went into the realms where fear serves as teacher for a long period of time, then it is time to release the teacher and let it go. Larry courageously shared that he has grappled with a "fear of failure" for a long time. He revealed how this fear had affected him in many ways. It was clear that he has become a master of that fear as we sat in the presence of all of his signs and facts of success. We were truly in a "Grand House" in Casa Grande on a "Grande Occasione." His heart was open, and he helped all of us present to open ours. The same hopefully happens for you now as you read about him and his wonderful story. He has written a book with much wisdom in it, reflections of his experiences and realness as well as the Truth in the Abstract. His favorite dream is to do two day workshops where people learn and practice what he lives and teaches with special emphasis on relaxation. I see him as ideal for the overstressed people of America.

Steven A. Levine is one of my favorites. I was privileged to hear him in person in Austin, Texas, in the spring of 1984. This quote from him has helped me through many a challenging time. "Our task is to keep our heart open in hell." Larry Porter had just received a message that his brother had just had a heart attack. Quite a message for Valentine's Day. If we work with the premise that the ideals in life are about how well we handle problems, Larry Porter is a wonderful model for us. He transformed the physical damage of the storm into a beautiful growth center, and he transformed the fear of failure into tangible-intangible success. His teachers are retired, and he is now available to teach us. Welcome to Casa Grande! Arizona is a wonderful place to be in the Winter and Spring. We all experienced growth, expansion, spiritual affinity and shared love and opened hearts on Valentine's Day. You can do the same on any day of the year. Larry also provided Thom Kelley with a locksmith and set us free to return to Phoenix.

You can contact Larry Porter at the Arizona Center for Relaxation, Casa Grande, Arizona.

Healthful Hints

By Donna McGrath, M.T. (ASCP), M.S., C.H.T., D.D.

Natural Remedies for Bumps and Bruises

Thankfully, Spring is almost upon us, at least in beautiful Aiken, South Carolina, where I recently visited Mel and AliceRay Minitor.

Spring…a time of renewal…when flowers bloom, kids enthusiastically run and play outdoors, and many move and relocate their homes. Now that the nasty weather is nearly behind us, and amidst the excitement of this renewal, we may find that many of us inadvertently suffer from bruises and bumps, as we make the transition from the non-movement of  winter hibernation to a bouncing, bountiful springtime.

Physical Bumps and Bruises

Bruises, called “black and blue marks”, are usually caused by bumping, falling, banging, or sharply impacting various parts of the body. Although the skin is not broken, tissues and blood vessels beneath the skin are injured. This sub-dermal bleeding results in pain, swelling and a bruise, which at first is reddish in color, then turns dark bluish black, and finally turns a greenish yellow color. As the bruise heals, capillaries and blood vessels are repaired and the blood beneath the skin is reabsorbed into the body.

“Black and blue” marks can be quite cosmetically unattractive depending upon where they occur on the body, therefore, today I am recommending both external and internal remedies to aid the body in repair of the injured tissues.

A homeopathic gel called Arnicaflora by Boericke and Tafel is a clear, stainless gel, which can be applied directly to the bruise. I have found that it shortens the healing time tremendously…sometimes a bad bruise can be healed in a day or two. If the bruise is caused by a surgical procedure, make sure not to apply the gel to an open wound, infected area, or around stitches. Arnica Montana, 30cc, pellets, can also be taken concurrently, 3-4 pellets 3-4 times per day to speed the whole process.

Additionally, bioflavonoids (vitamins from peels of oranges and citrus fruits, also known as Vitamin P), are known for their excellent capillary-mending capabilities. In order for supplementation with bioflavonoids to be most effective, one must take the appropriate dosage. At least 1000-3000 mg per day (1-3, 1000 mg tablets) must be taken of the concentrated Citrus Bioflavoniod Complex. Foremost Brand by Reliance Vitamins in Branchburg, N.J. work well in this application, as it contains a rutin and hesperidin bioflavoniod complex, which repairs small capillaries. In addition, 3000 to 10,000 mg of Vitamin C per day helps supply oxygen to the injured cells and aids in strengthening capillary walls. You may find combo products, which contain Vitamin C with bioflavoniods, but I find that they only contain a small amount of the bioflavonoids necessary, (perhaps 50 or 100 mg), to effectively repair the capillaries. If I were to pick two products to use to remedy bruises, they would be arnica gel externally and 1000-3000 mg per day of concentrated citrus bioflavonoid complex internally. Also, eating plenty of green leafy vegetables such as collard greens, kale,  leaf lettuce, and alfalfa aids in blood clotting.

Other factors, which may cause easy bruising are anemia, malnutrition, cancer, overuse of aspirin and ibuprofen, or use of anticlotting drugs after a heart attack, such as coumadin. If you are on anticoagulant therapy, arnica flora gel externally is all that I recommend using, without checking with your physician first.

Emotionally Handling Bruises and Falls

The Bach flower essence Rescue Remedy is a homeopathic tincture, which every one should keep on hand to ease the emotional trauma after a fall. Mothers of young children can add a few drops to their child’s water or juice after they take a tumble. I successfully used it with my daughter after many falls, to the point that she would ask for it on occasion. It helps in all cases of emotional trauma after an abrupt injury, applying 3-10 drops under the tongue in an adult or in a small glass of water. Bach Rescue Remedy cream is also available to use externally as a cream. It works great to reduce swelling or on bumps and bruises.

If overall muscle soreness is a problem after a fall, take a warm bath in Epsom salts or use a product called Bath Therapy. Bath Therapy is a mineral bath which nourishes your body with minerals, takes away muscle soreness, and uplifts you after a long day at work.

Spiritually Healing

Please examine the thoughts you had right before a fall or bruise occurred. Remember that we create our reality and that nothing happens by accident.

You may find that you were rushing to go somewhere or trying to do something quickly. You may have been experiencing feelings of impatience right before the injury occurred. Strive to identify and then correct the negative thought pattern by slowing down and utilizing deep breathing. Again, meditate and focus your thoughts, changing anger to understanding and forgiveness and impatience to the patience of God.

I would like to send a special thanks to AliceRay and Mel Minitor for welcoming me into their home and for the wonderful southern hospitality shown to me. Spring has definitely sprung in beautiful Aiken, with magnolias blossoming and flowers preparing to sprout.

 Thanks again to Mel, the computer doctor, for getting my office up and running.

Many blessings to all of our readers and wishing all of you a healthful, bountiful Spring.

Love and Light,

Donna McGrath

The Fork Story

There was a young woman who had been diagnosed with a terminal illness and had been given three months to live.   So as she was getting her things "in order" she contacted her pastor and had him come to her house to discuss certain  aspects of her final wishes.

She told him which songs she wanted sung at the service, what scriptures she would like read, and what outfit she wanted to be buried in.   Everything was in order and the pastor was preparing to leave when the young woman suddenly remembered something very important to her.

"There's one more thing," she said excitedly.

What's that?" came the pastor's reply.

"This is very important," the young woman continued. "I want to be buried with a fork in my right hand."

The pastor stood looking at the young woman, not knowing quite what to say." That surprises you, doesn't it?" the young woman asked.

"Well to be honest, I'm puzzled by the request," said the pastor.

The young woman explained. "My grandmother once told me this story, and from there on out, I have always done so. I have also, always tried to pass along its message to those I love and those who are in need of encouragement. In all my years of attending  church socials and potluck dinners, I always remember that when the dishes of the main course were being cleared, someone would inevitably lean over and say, 'Keep your fork.' It was my favorite part because I knew that something better was coming...like velvety chocolate cake or deep-dish apple pie.  Something wonderful, and with substance! So, I just want people to see me there in that casket with a fork in my hand and I want them to wonder 'What's with the fork?' Then I want you to tell them: 'Keep your fork ... the best is yet to come.'" The pastor's eyes welled up with tears of joy as he hugged the young woman good-bye. He knew this would be one of the last times he would see her before her death, but he also knew that the young woman had a better grasp of heaven than he did. She had a better grasp of what heaven would be like than many people twice her age, with twice as much experience and knowledge. She KNEW that something better was coming.

At the funeral people were walking by the young woman's casket and they saw the pretty dress she was wearing and the fork placed in her right hand. Over and over, the pastor heard the question "What's with the fork?" And over and over he smiled.

During his message, the pastor told the people of the conversation he had with the young woman shortly before she died. He also told them about the fork and about what it symbolized to her. The pastor told the people how he could not stop thinking about the fork and told them that they probably would not be able to stop thinking about it either.  He was right. So the next time you reach down for your fork, let it remind you ever so gently, that the best is yet to come. Friends are a very rare jewel, indeed. They make you smile and encourage you to succeed.

They lend an ear, they share a word of praise, and they always want to open their hearts to us.

Show your friends how much you care. Remember to always be there for them, even when YOU need them more. 
For you never know when it may be their time to "Keep your fork."

Cherish the time you have, and the memories you share... being friends with someone is not an opportunity but a sweet responsibility.

Reflections: 

  -BonnieJ.Ryan

How do you explain prejudice to an eight-year old? February in third grade is Valentine’s Day, President’s Day and African American Heritage Month. This year the juxtaposition of these holidays brought me a new perspective on love and hate. My class is multiracial -- Caucasian, Hispanic, African, Asian and mixed heritage. The children are every shade of white, black and brown – sixty percent of them from families that speak English as a second language. Most of the children have been going to school together since kindergarten.

On Valentine’s Day the children shared cards and treats with their friends and classmates. It was a joyful expression of love and friendship celebrated with great enthusiasm by children who were blissfully unaware that less than fifty years ago their friendships would have been impossible.

couple of days later, in honor of African American Heritage Month, the whole school read the story of Ruby Bridges, the six year-old who was the first black child to attend an all-white elementary school. My class sat silent, wide-eyed, with looks of confusion and disbelief as I read to them about Ruby Bridges – how she faced mobs of angry protesters day after day, how she had to be escorted to school by federal marshals with guns, how the white parents kept their children at home so that Ruby sat in an empty classroom with her teacher every day. “Why, Mrs. Ryan?” My students couldn’t understand. “Why?” They wanted to know. “Is Ruby Bridges still alive?” Surely this must have happened a long, long time ago in that semi-real realm of “once upon a time.” I calculated Ruby’s age – she is younger than I am. In fact, I had to explain to my students, I was attending fourth grade in a segregated school in Texas the year that Ruby Bridges was in first grade. “But why, Mrs. Ryan?” How do you explain prejudice to an eight-year old?

We still have a long way to go to heal the wounds of our history – to create a world where prejudice is incomprehensible. But there is hope. When a third grade class cannot imagine not having friends who are different from themselves – when a teacher looks into their beautiful multi-colored faces and struggles explain why white children and black children were not allowed to go to school together – there is hope. 

Thank you, Ruby Bridges!!

Quotes from Evelyn Rice's soon to be released book

"Finding Your Soul Mate"


"We are spiritual beings having a human experience. As a result, it is critical we learn how to balance our spiritual journey in a physical plane, especially when it comes to our relationships. Once we begin to practice balance, it is much easier to increase our ability to manifest our highest relationship desires." 

A way to begin the practice of balance is taking the time each day to ask these questions:

l) What did I learn today that helped me to grow as an individual and how will I apply that in my daily life?
2) What practice did I incorporate into my life today that assisted me in touching the "source of all that is"?
3) In what way did I contribute to humanity unconditional love and acceptance today?

(Hopefully books will be off the press mid  June)   E-mail Evelyn

The circle will be Unbroken.

At the core of my very being, I am paralyzed, not realizing at that moment that before me awaits an even closer walk with God.  Losing someone I love who is valued more than mere words can express, simply inescapable torment.

In the midst of grief, it seems to stop me cold in my tracks. Time seems to have absolutely no relevance, for there I am…frozen in that seemingly inescapable torment.

   ns me up for the miracle of healing.  Being torn apart inside simply makes room for Spirit to come in and fill the black void of my loss.

 “Blessed are they that mourn, for they shall be comforted.” Matthew 5:4

Yet I have been taught by our society that it is better to suppress these moments of hurt…that is the “correct” way to overcome the pain. I have become quite fearful of getting hurt – being close to anyone opened me up for such overwhelming pain, I had even shut myself off from those I loved the most. Now, though, I believe that by accepting these uncomfortable moments, I am opening myself up for an even greater opportunity to know God, the greatest comforter of the soul.

   Difficult times are not meant to totally annihilate us, for I am a true believer in those words, “this too shall pass.”

   I can and will endure anything with the knowing in my heart that God’s unconditional love in answer to my question of “Why?” will eventually fill-in the whole picture and thus reveal the gifts that this grief shrouds temporarily.

   The loss of a couple of extremely close friends, soul mates, has opened my heart to a greater understanding of what it is to “let go” and know that I will see them again, for we are only passing through this world called Earth, it is not the end, but an opening to another realm

 The circle will not be broken.

I write this in remembrance of Tally Durand and Alvin Turner, two most loved friends.  --AliceRay
