Avatar in Life
Here is the excerpt from Inc. magazine that I think expresses so much of what we are doing - I don't know if I believe the world will not treat us well but I can feel the determinism and faith needed:
"It is only in times like these that you get a chance to show your strength. In the end, I think we need to have absolute faith in our ability to deal with whatever is thrown at us. And we need to have a complete, realistic paranoia that a lot can be thrown at us. It's our ability to put those two contradictory ideas together: We need to be prepared for what we can't predict and, at the same time have this total unwavering faith that we will find a way to deal with all of it. And I believe we will. I don't believe the world will treat us well, but we will figure out how to do very well."
I like the idea that two contradictory things can be aligned - that what seems to be a problem can be actually be an opportunity for a solution.
Everyone I worked with today that seemed to have a problem now seems to have a solution - I can't wait for tomorrow.
Lots of love,
Just want to congratulations on the success of Wizards 2009 ! I was not there this year but my wife and daughter were there !! I have had an incredible time over the past 3 years after doing my Avatar course and what I have created in that time is literally mind blowing. I will write you a separate success story on that !!! In summarised version. A similar phenomena that compelled me to continue to support my wife to get to wizards when it would have been easier to walk away is in play with my commitment to creating an EPC. I am about to become quite wealthy and I put it down to the Avatar tools and my new found ability to show gratitude and humility. When I first did the Avatar course 3 years ago my marriage was on shaky ground and I was unhappy with my life. I knew immidiatley that I wanted to do this work and I created the primary " I do whatever it take to become a full time Avatar Master and and be financially independent " I am now a full-time Avatar Master , my marriage is great and I am about to become financially independent and the more I contribute to other the happier I get !! I want to pay this forward and continue to awaken others to the possibilities that life offers.
Ironically I do not really need the money beyond paying off my debt but I am looking forward to spending the rest of my life in pursuit of creating an EPC. I love all of these networking sites , I do not think that it is an accident that they have started to appear connecting the world !!! Bring it on !!
Thank you Harry you are such an inspiration
PS. I have to tell you that the discouragement drill is incredible, amazing and a gift :) I love it !!! I really want to acknowledge you for the amount of discouragement that you must have handled to get Avatar to where it is today !!! Truly awesome.
Very cool to be connected to you....
Thank you for a great week in Orlando. And thank you
for inspiring me to come!
You asked me to write an email to relate the story I told
you at the beginning of the course, about how I was also
inspired the movie Braveheart.
I don't think I would have come if I wouldn't have filled
out that course registration form with Matt at the Pro
When we talked before the course, and I told you I didn't
think I was coming... you mentioned that I wouldn't have
filled out the form if I hadn't at one time wanted to come....
Which was true. I DID want to come.
And I remembered the last Austin course over the holidays
when I wanted to come...
But had let the idea go as circumstances came up in the
interim and intervened... and here it was happening again...
As I was thinking whether to come... resisting calling you
back... I found myself lying in bed in the morning... not even
wanting to get out of bed...
Then I remembered a scene from the movie Braveheart...
The scene is just before a big battle between the Scottish
and the English... the Scottish lords gathered with their men
before the battle...
Then English arrive before the battle with a force so large
that the Scottish army... workers on the nobles lands... begin
... as what they see is the only the idea of fighting for the nobles
lands... against an opponent that seems overwhelming...
That's when William Wallace and his group arrive on horseback...
William: "If this is your army, why does it go?" [to the nobles]
Veteran soldier: "We didn't come here to fight for them."
Young soldier: "Home. The English are too many."
William: "Sons of Scotland, I am William Wallace."
Young soldier: "William Wallace is 7 feet tall."
William: "Yes, I've heard. He kills men by the hundreds... and
if HE were here he'd consume the English with fireballs from his
eyes, and bolts of lightning from his arse."
"I AM William Wallace, and I see a whole army of my countrymen
here in defiance of tyranny. You have come to fight as free men, and
free men you are. What will you do with that freedom? Will you fight?"
Veteran soldier: "Fight against that? No, we will run, and we will live."
William: "Aye, fight and you may die, run and you'll live. At least a while."
"And dying in your beds many years from now, would you be willing
to trade all the days from this day to that for one chance, just one chance
to come back here and tell our enemies that they may take our lives, but
they'll never take our freedom?!"
As I lay in bed that morning... wondering what to do... that scene from
Braveheart came to me..
Many years from now... dying in my bed... which would I choose...
$2000 extra dollars in my account....
... or the opportunity to come meditate on the lessons of Harry...
the other Masters... and the budding Avatars... in beautiful space
... and contribute to others awaking to their own freedom...
When I looked at my choice from that perspective of my
higher self... from my intuitive self... the choice was easy...
It also occured to me that we have that the choice we have
in each moment... not just the dramatic moments in a movie...
... those moments can be just as dramatic in the impact we have...
... and we don't have to wait many years from now... until
we are dying in bed... :-)
What will I do with my moment now?
And now.. and now... and now....
What will YOU do with YOUR moment now? :-)
Thank you for your inspiration!
With love, Brady
My name is Joaquin Mendez and I am an Avatar Master in Minnesota. I had the privilege of having Elleva Joy McDonald as my Avatar Master.
Two weeks before she passed away, I spent a morning with her at the hospital while she was still alert and able to talk. It was a precious encounter full of love, appreciation, laughs and tears. She requested that if she were to depart to a new life, I write you a letter and share our experience this morning.
So here it is:
I entered the hospital room and she was lying in her bed, happier than I have ever seen her before. She was receiving all kinds of medications shots from nurses and doctors, and giving shots of love in return to every hospital employee that walked into her room. A Wizard in complete connection with her higher self and in feel.
It will remain one of my greatest pleasures to listen to the words that came from her heart and soul that morning. She spoke about being alive: "If you can stay awake and be in feel, it is the greatest joy in the world. Be open to the beauty of the world. See the people, look at the spark of their eyes and notice how much there is inside of each person. Stay awake! Stay in feel! Be the breeze of the dawn."
She spoke about her mission in life: "I always wanted to help others grow spiritually. I did not want to be only a face with a smile, but a person fully alive in the inside, a beacon of light. You do not have to prove anything. You do not need to be somebody. All you need to "do" to love others is have a heart! Isn't that amazing!"
She spoke about nature: "There is a lot that we can learn from nature. Nature is wise." On the TV screen, an image of a leaf changing seasons. "Just as nature changes seasons when it is time, life changes too."
I have never witnessed somebody feel so alive and experience so much love and gratitude for life as Elleva Joy in that expanded state. I told her that I hoped someday to experience what she was feeling in that moment. She gazed into my eyes and smiled. Instantly I saw my whole life pass by, from being a little kid until the present moment. I saw the impact that she had had on my life.
"Elleva," I said, "I just saw my whole life. I saw myself as a happy little kid: running barefoot, without a t-shirt, in the backyard, loving the feeling of grass under my feet and the wind against my body. I saw myself jumping into a pool, feeling the sensation of my body in water, playing outdoors, feeling the sun against my skin. I also saw the first time that I experienced fear, the first time that I felt ashamed of being myself, the first time I felt heartbroken, the first time I felt inferior. And I saw how, as a little kid, I started resisting and resenting these experiences and started pursuing being "somebody" and eventually stopped feeling. Then I saw you coming into my life and I started to remember how to feel again."
Full of emotions and tears, I thanked Elleva Joy for awakening, and then awakening me. She smiled and said, "Good, I see that you are in feel. Stay awake."
Then she added, "If I depart to my new life, could you please write a letter to Harry, share this moment with him, and thank him."
Harry, at some point in you life you passed the Avatar gift to John Pasqualetti. A decade ago John Pasqualetti passed the Avatar gift to Elleva Joy. Five years ago Elleva Joy passed the gift to me. Thank you for the Avatar tools and for your love and service to humanity.
Elleva Joy touched my life deeply. In my last encounter with her, I witnessed what it was like to be fully alive-and gained a new perspective on living a successful life and fulfilling your life's purpose.
With love and gratitude,
