IS SHAPED BY OUR MIND
Rebekah Clark Dunlap
The opening verse of the Dhammapada says, "Our life is shaped by our mind;
we become what we think. Joy follows a pure thought like a shadow that
never leaves." These simple lines can be both very subtle and quite
practical. The words are rich and filled with meaning. Basically, they
remind us that the thoughts of our mind are the forerunners of our
experiences. In sacred scriptures, the original mind, or true self of the
human being, is considered the proper ground of enlightenment.
Although our mind is neither confined to the brain, nor is it a product of
the brain, it nevertheless works through the brain as thoughts.
Thought--the act, or process, of thinking--is often acknowledged as perhaps
the greatest power or ability that humans possess. Have you considered that
our thoughts are pivotal? They may be directed in a positive, fruitful
expression, or they may be used in a negative, non-beneficial manner. Our
individual thoughts provide the tool with which we may carve our life story
on the substance of the universe. So, since thinking has been referred to
as "the master power of the mind," wouldn't more understanding and
utilization of this powerful process be beneficial to everyone?
We are changing every day of our life. Are we growing with the changes?
Are we making conscious choices to enhance the state of our mind, body, and
soul? What is our motivation? Every day is a new opportunity to choose how
we will live. Consider the importance of the choices you make. If you are
becoming what you think, what are you thinking?
Notes & Thoughts By W. G. Black Ph.D.
- Founder of Gakati'yi
"To give and to receive are one in truth."
This statement is the title for Lesson 108 in the Workbook for Students of A Course in Miracles. I have
found it to be one of the most challenging parts of working with the material in the Course. It is also one of
the most instructive and rewarding lessons. I share my struggle with you in hopes you may benefit also. I am
receiving as I give to you.
A key to understanding its meaning lies of course in the differences between the world of illusions and the
world of truth. It is in the world of truth where giving and receiving are the same. We are all aware and
perhaps somewhat exhausted with all of the differences, contrasts and struggles in the world of illusions.
We are familiar with the "haves versus the have nots," the current "losses" in the stock market, the gains and losses
all around the world at various times, and the feelings of loss that so often go with systems of taxation.
Phil Laut wrote the book, Money Is My Friend. Phil has an MBA from Harvard, did well in business but
found things lacking in his life. He became a rebirther and counselor and found much reward therein.
He received much as he gave. He has developed the idea that mankind developed five limiting beliefs to
explore. They are the belief in lack, limitation, loss, scarcity and deprivation.
He views these beliefs as the core of our "death belief system" on earth.
In contrast, of course, abundance, prosperity, infinite supply and overflowing blessings are the core of our "life belief system." The point of emphasis here is that we have a
choice...we can and do choose to make these beliefs, explore them to the maximum many times, and, the
good news is, we can choose differently. We can release a belief in lack and change to a belief in abundance,
and all kinds of changes come about in our lives. I enjoyed reading the other day about Henry Ford and the
choice of color for the cars being manufactured. The customers were beginning to complain about a LACK
of choice. His famous reply was, "They can have any color they want just so it's black." General Motors
offered more choices, and Ford Motor Company almost didn't continue due to his "monovision."
Today the abundance of choices among automobiles is "mind boggling." Phil Laut assists his clients in changing their five
limiting beliefs to abundant ones. That is a major change toward understanding that giving and receiving are
the same, but even that can remain in the world of illusions and be only a contrast of illusions.
We must go even higher to achieve the "consciousness of sameness" presented in the Course.
"True light that makes true vision possible is not the light the body's eyes behold. It is a state of mind that has
become so unified that darkness cannot be perceived at all. And thus what is the same is seen as one, while
what is not the same remains unnoticed, for it is not there. ---This is the light that shows no opposites, and
vision, being healed, has power to heal. ---Here are both giving and receiving seen as different aspects of
one Thought whose truth does not depend on which is seen as first, nor which appears to be in second
We will receive as we give. Let us practice briefly. Think of what you would give to another today.
Peace of mind, quietness, gentleness are suggested in the lesson. To someone specific or to everyone,
"I offer peace of mind." We will receive as we have given. Another statement from another part of the
Course matches these so well: "All that I give, I give to myself." Give love today, and you will receive as you
do. I am grateful for all that I have received by sharing these Notes and Thoughts with you. Thank you for

Good Knight Campaign
Wounded Granite Hill H.S. Teacher Related to Violence Prevention Advocate
Washington D.C. Lt. Colonel James Zumwalt (ret), President of the Good Knight
Child Empowerment Network Inc. and Jacqueline Cooper, Co-Executive Director,
are available for interviews surrounding the latest California school shooting incident and to discuss a nationwide solution, time tested, that is
available to schools on how to prevent future violence. Two presentations of
this award winning program--entitled the Good Knight Violence Prevention
Program--was given on Tuesday, March 27th, 2001. The first presentation
at the Auten Road Elementary School at Hillsborough, New Jersey.
The Granite Hills High School shooting on Thursday, March 22, proved to be a bitter pill for James Zumwalt to swallow. For less than two
months after he became president of an organization dedicated to ending school violence, he learned his cousin, Fran Zumwalt, was one of the two
teachers at Granite Hills who were wounded by a student firing a shotgun. A
long-time advocate for violence prevention and volunteer with the Good Knight
Child Empowerment Network, Inc., James Zumwalt commented, "Although I have
been working on the problem of crime prevention for a while, I--like so many
Americans--have been lulled into a false sense of security, believing school
violence would never really directly affect my family. I was naive to think
so. Until this recent violence, I had failed to share information with all my
family members on how to prevent such violence. The Good Knight Program is a
powerful weapon in a somewhat limited arsenal of available programs we have
to sensitize children to violence, teasing, bullying and understanding the
motives of those who are committed to doing violence. My late father, Admiral
Elmo Zumwalt, Jr. (ret), once said, 'Only a nation prepared for war can prepare for peace.' That is what is required now to protect our children--we
must implement an effective program in our schools to curb violence so they
can take comfort in knowing a school zone and a 'combat zone'--contrary to
today's headlines--are not the same thing."
Zumwalt is available for interviews about the adoption of the Million Knight
Campaign Initiative, introduced into Congress by Congressman Albert Wynn
(MD-D), to activate over one million volunteers nationwide this year to offer
crime and violence prevention programs in schools, community centers and
neighborhoods. The goal of the Campaign is to locate corporate sponsors for
the free giveaway of the Good Knight Safety Videos for the volunteers presenting this program nationwide. Statistically, it has been shown that
over 50% of all crime can be prevented if one knows the behavior of would-be
criminals prior to their approach.
"A leading psychologist in the Maryland school system believes that hosting
a Good Knight Crime Prevention Program in schools may well have prevented a
number of these tragedies," suggests Zumwalt. The Good Knight Crime Prevention Programs are simple but effective programs that any youth and
adult can present. The Initiative combines peer mentoring, community service,
and volunteerism to solve a needed problem in our community. This crime prevention program has been recognized nationally by Parade Magazine, "48
Hours," and "America's Most Wanted" as one of the most effective and innovative programs in the area of crime prevention. The program has also
received the 1999 President's Service Award Silver Medal in the area of Public Safety.

the founder of the Campaign, Sir Edward Jagen, the Blue Knight, or to schedule an interview of Lt. Colonel James Zumwalt (ret.) or Jacqueline
Cooper, please call 301-595-8989.

I’m on the home stretch of my first year as an
elementary school teacher. Last
weekend I received a call from a seventh grader who needed help on a
school project. “You busy
today, Miss Bonnie?” Of
course I couldn’t be too busy for Travis!
He is my friend. He was a fourth grader when his grandmother asked if I could
help him with his schoolwork. I
was a white woman living alone in an African-American community and his
grandmother had welcomed me to the neighborhood.
I missed my own children, grown and scattered across the country,
and was more than glad to have a young person sitting at my kitchen
table again. Through
two summers and two long winters Travis came nearly every evening.
I helped him with his homework, but it was Travis who was the
teacher. He led me to my
“second calling.” He
helped me understand that I needed children in my life.
Not as a parent…I am more than pleased to celebrate the freedom
of having grown children who are self-reliant and fiercely
independent…but as a friend, as a teacher, and as an elder in the
As a teacher, I find that most of my students are starved for
adult attention. Children
are desperate for someone to listen to them.
Too many children are dropped off early at school, spend an hour
or more in “pre-care,” seven hours in a classroom with one adult
whose attention is divided among twenty other students, and then another
couple of hours in “after-care” until they are finally picked up by
tired, stressed, over-worked parents who just want to get home, grab
something to eat, watch some TV. and go to bed.
Who will listen to the children?
Who will talk to the children?
Who will help our children find their way in the world?
Where is the “village”?
Two images come to mind. A
recent magazine article described the current most booming housing
market in the U.S. as developments targeted toward “active,
empty-nesters” who want to live in communities with other adults who
enjoy active pastimes and do not want children around.
In vivid contrast, I recall standing in the courtyard of the
jailhouse on Robbin Island where Nelson Mandella was imprisoned and
listening to a man who had been a fellow prisoner recall their
experience. When asked what
was the most difficult thing about being in prison all those years he
responded, “We missed the children.
We never saw any children.”
Give yourself a gift of joy and spend some time with a child!

you are a Art Bell Fan, You will love The Quest
People come into your life for a reason, a season, or a lifetime. When you
figure out which it is, you know exactly what to do.
When someone is in your life for a REASON, it is usually to meet a need you have expressed outwardly or inwardly. They have come to assist you
through a difficulty, to provide you with guidance and support, to aid you
physically, emotionally, or spiritually. They may seem like a godsend, and
they are. They are there for the reason you need them to be. Then, without any wrongdoing on your part or at an inconvenient time, this person
will say or do something to bring the relationship to an end. Sometimes
they die. Sometimes they walk away. Sometimes they act up or out and force
you to take a stand. What we must realize is that our need has been met,
our desire fulfilled; their work is done. The prayer you sent up has been
answered and it is now time to move on.
When people come into your life for a SEASON, it is because your turn has come to share, grow, or learn. They may bring you an experience of peace
or make you laugh. They may teach you something you have never done. They
usually give you an unbelievable amount of joy. Believe it! It is real, but
only for a season.
LIFETIME relationships teach you lifetime lessons; those things you must build upon in order to have a solid emotional foundation. Your job is to
accept the lesson, love the person/people (anyway); and put what you have
learned to use in all other relationships and areas of your life. It is said that love is blind but friendship is clairvoyant.
Thank you for being a part of my life.
