Tis the Season to be Thankful!

We are wishing everyone a Happy Thanksgiving holiday!  Even though it’s a holiday celebrated mostly in the USA, this is a really great time for anyone to remind yourself of what you can be thankful for. This week, look for the silver linings in your life, especially where things may have been disturbing. This is a good time to clear out your life, and especially the physical parts of your existence! Clean your closets, your garage, your desk-get rid of any things that you don’t need. These things carry memories and these memories attach you to your past. We need to wipe the slate clean! Start to think about ways to simplify your life. If you feel overwhelmed by this holiday season and don’t know what to give to your loved ones, just give the gift of spending time with those who have everything!

End Paycheck to Paycheck Karma

End Paycheck to Paycheck Karma

Want to end the paycheck to paycheck cycle? Dr. Pillai talks about how it happened and where to seek solutions…   If I want to take credit for something, it is the credit of making available a technology to control karma, and even transform it. Right from the beginning I have focused on it. Don’t get confused about the concept of karma that may belong to some religion. No, it does not belong to any religion. It is a scientific concept called the Law of Causality, like Newton’s laws talking about reaction. Karma is simply a reaction to something that has already taken place. So, why are many people poor? The answer is… It is karma. What is karma then? It is not a meta-physical concept as I said. The Buddha himself who never believed in God, who never believed in soul, believed in karma and defined karma very beautifully: “Karma is only a thought process that you carry on from one birth, to another birth, to another birth.” “Paycheck to paycheck” is a karma you have been continuing from lifetime to lifetime—from many lifetimes—and it is a very stubborn karma. It needs to be changed or transformed. You can do that. Karma is not a philosophy of fatalism; I do not believe in fatalism at all. Human will is more powerful, even more powerful than God. That’s how powerful you are. You can change your life the way you want to change. But then, as Einstein said, “You cannot find the solution to your problem from the same kind of thinking that created it.” In order to change...
Desiring the Millionaire’s Brain

Desiring the Millionaire’s Brain

Dr. Pillai explains how authentic desire is the key for big money manifestations…   “The mind will not create. Only the heart will create. You will fall from the head to the heart. That’s why it’s called falling in love. As long as you’re in the head emotions will not be there. Emotions are very important and have an intelligence. That intelligence is creative intelligence; it can create. A very powerful fantasy is a lot more powerful than any strategic planning through your mind. That’s nothing compared to the emotions. You must have the emotions. The emotions should be completely, completely authentic. But most people have difficulty in desiring. And when you don’t have desire you’ll lose things. Look at the example of the Buddha. One of his teachings is, “desire is the root cause for all miseries.” So what happened? He could not be in the palace, could not be with his wife, could not be with his father, and could not be with his son. He became a monk. I’m not putting down the Buddha, but the rule is the same whether it is the Buddha, me, or you. If you have no desire then you will lose it. But the Buddha had another desire. What is that desire? What is his main teaching? Emptiness. Nirvana. That was his desire, and he got it. I used to teach Buddhist meditation for the University of Pittsburgh. There were people who would stand in line to register for it. There would be a waiting list for every class and I would have to teach it another semester. But at...
