It was like hearing spirit knock on a door that would eventually open to time and space. Miracle fails to adequately describe the transformation of spirit into flesh. And ever since, your presence and growth has ushered before us a procession of magical moments. Truly, if human beings only knew of how many miracles they performed every day, just by being here, nothing else in our lives would ever again overwhelm us, frighten us, or seem impossible. His body was free from illness and disease and his intelligence was far superior to that of anybody else. When he spoke, he spoke in a way that had never been heard. When he sat still, he sat in way that had never been seen. Parvati knew that her husband was experiencing another dimension of life. He was too far removed from the misery of the common man not to be experiencing a higher reality of life. The yogi was immersed in what seemed to be a completely separate reality. One day the princess Parvati would make a loving enquiry that would form the basis of everything we know of today (in regard to Indian culture). She would ask; O Shiva, what is your reality? What is your wonder filled universe? Remember, people who know exactly what they want are more likely to attain it than those who don't. This is because they know what they need to focus on every day. The question is, do you? To clarify your vision further, don't hesitate to run through this exercise over and over in the coming weeks or months. you could focus only on doing one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be? Although you might struggle with this question, try to answer it as best you can.

one thing could you possibly commit to for the rest of your life? Pick just one thing, and make sure it's the most important thing to you. If you understood and truly believed you could achieve absolutely anything you want by sticking to it for long enough, what would you pursue in the next three to five years? What is the one goal you want to achieve the most right now? The notion that we use different operating systems to think has been at the center of my work for the last fifty years. I uncovered it in the 1970s while I was shuttling back and forth from graduate school at Columbia to a classroom in Harlem, where I was teaching forty kids, many with rat bites on their cheeks and folders full of labels about how they were disabled. I adored these children. Each one was a precious riddle that asked, What can be possible for this child? Then I met a lanky researcher at NYU named E. Roy John, who was measuring certain brain-wave frequencies associated with general psychological processes. He originated a field of study called neurometrics, which used a computer and an EEG to monitor what was going on in the brain while a person was thinking. Meanwhile, I was searching for the best reading method to use with my students: the sight method, phonics, or an experiential approach. I brought several children to his lab and connected them to his equipment. What I observed, to put it simply, was that if I gave Johnny written information to look at, his brain produced more beta waves, indicating he was concentrating. He agreed that we had not served Edna well. She had had a protracted death and been subject to unacceptable interventions. Perhaps we could have shown more courage. He was right. Many of these poor people living out the endgames of their lives in mute nostril agony are doing so because their doctors lack courage. They lack the courage to confront relatives with facts and the courage not to acquiesce to unrealistic demands.

Perhaps in certain critical situations we should be a bit more paternalistic. A colleague interjected that for doctors to have courage we must have the backing of corporate courage. If our hospitals will not support us, then nothing will change. In reality nothing strikes more fear into a hospital's trust board than the threat of reputational damage. I am not sure how it came to me, but in the middle of the night, tired but sleepless, exhausted but incapable of slumber, I realized that I was tired of running through my complaints over and over again. I realized that the roads I habitually traveled were not going anywhere new. I was on a daily commute to nowhere. I wondered if it was because I was choosing roads that only offered a tour of the problems, without taking me to a solution. That morning for some reason, I said to myself--will I be a plus or a minus? As an experiment, I said Okay, plus. And I had that inside my head when I became faced with any decision that came my way. If someone sent me an email that irritated me, I asked myself before I responded: Am I going to be a plus or a minus? And is my current mood influencing how my response might turn out? This is the key to everything in life: almost all my negative responses are mood based. There are ways to connect - if you know how to find them. We Aspies spend our lives trying to figure out the neurotypical world. Your learning our language is your first step in understanding what it's like to be us; Only one time in my life can I recall an outsider hitting the nail on the head in describing the experience. At the Autism/Asperger's Super-Conference I referenced earlier, Tony Attwood drew his presentation to an end with a photograph. In the picture, a group of about ten people in bathing suits sit on the edge of a pier.

The day is sunny and bright, the water is glistening, and the group is full of smiling folks, belly laughing and obviously having an absolutely wonderful time together. But the catch is this: we see the entire gang from the back. Standing maybe 20 feet behind everyone else, we are just beyond the edge of inclusion - a witness, but not a part. Perhaps the happy bunch wants us to join in, politely, maybe even sincerely. So there exists science that might be able to explain the weird phenomena I learned of. was a far cry from what my initial Internet research showed. Resistance to new paradigms But in my research I realized that mainstream science resists these ideas. It vehemently rejects the notion that consciousness can exist independently of the body. Mainstream science instead holds to its belief that consciousness is produced by the brain, without being able to explain how. It also assumes that consciousness has no effect on the physical world. If you pick up a cutting-edge physics article in a articlestore, the odds are that consciousness is either minimally referenced or completely absent. Physicist Lee Smolin comments: I get a lot of e-mails about consciousness. To most of them I reply that whereas there are real mysteries about consciousness, they're beyond what science can tackle with present knowledge. I'll start dating again once I lose 10 pounds: More people will reply to my profile. I'll join the gym, but only after I lose 10 pounds on my own first: I don't want to be embarrassed. I'll buy this dress, but only after I lose 10 pounds: I can't bring myself to buy something that big. Real talk: Your life is not going to become happier, more amazing, or more successful after you lose those 10 pounds. Or 20 pounds. Or 50 pounds.

Because the pounds aren't really the issue. Your state of mind is. Allow me to illustrate with a super-duper personal story. Because that's what I do best. But try to keep things in perspective and remember what's important, and things won't seem so bad. Don't wait for a better today, make today better. MGJY Top Tip If you can't allocate time every day to clean and tidy, don't worry. Find a decluttering solution that works for you and your daily routine. For example, tackle the small, achievable tasks first before moving on to the more difficult or time-consuming ones.

You'll be back in control and you'll love living in your tidy home. Talk to a Life Coach A cluttered life often brings lots of debilitating and negative emotions, including stress, guilt, confusion, shame, anger and self-judgement. Not from preachers or salesmen, but from bored Mormon college students. Mormons--and Mormon schools like BYU--have a health code that discourages alcohol. When you put tens of thousands of young abstainers together in a small college town, an obnoxious proliferation of creative group activities results. One of them is the reason for that late-night knock. It's a game called Bigger or Better. Bigger or Better is a scavenger hunt, a sort of trick-or-treating for (young) adults.
