Ghostly Gala

I just returned from 3 weeks in New York City with side trips to Staten Island to meet some of my favorite people on Facebook. This was an incredible trip. I feel I am bonded for life with these wonderful people.

I told my friend, who's a psychoanalyst, "I think I'll stop analyzing my problems and see what happens." She nearly bit my head off: "Are you crazy? You have to analyze your problems or they might go away!"

Thoughts have substance, and we manifest those things that occupy our thoughts. "What you think about grows, so watch what you allow into your mind.  We have the power to reverse our circumstances by reversing our thoughts. Surrender to the moment. Accept whatever is happening, no matter how "bad" it looks or feels. Acceptance is the key to serenity. If someone has wronged you, stolen from you, locked you out of your home — do the basic footwork to right the wrongs —  such as reporting any crime to the police, the Better Business Bureau, Legal Aid, the Legal Defense fund, Renters' Rights, or whatever help you can find in your community. Find temporary housing, go to a Food Bank, take care of the basics for your family. If you have children, teach them that they are safe no matter what, and that every new challenge is a new adventure. Teach them that they can survive whatever life

There are public libraries where you can sit all day with your children and research the Internet for help.  There are community centers that will helP you find resources. There are missions and churches with temporary housing. There are parks with free meals for senior citizens. There are restaurants you can go to and just sit in a booth with a glass of water while you re-group and make calls. There is a Social Services Department. There are countless 12-step meetings in every city, where you can share your woes. There are kind people everywhere, willing to lend a hand when asked.

But after taking care of the basics, let go and let the Universe take the reins.  Trust that you will be taken care of as the lilies of the field.  Just try it. Try not worrying for one day and see what happens.  "But you have to worry about your problems or they might go away!"

It does no good to dwell in the misery of your own thoughts for long, or to keep asking "Why? Why did this happen to me?" Sometimes we fall down in order to learn to get back up. And to learn self reliance. It's an inside job.  Sometimes there is no human power that can save us; we have to find a higher power ...We have to go within and lean on inner resources. It's an inside job :)

It helps to realize that everyone is fallible and no person or system is perfect. Here in the U.S. we somehow have the idea that the trains will run on time, the water will flow from the pipes, and people will treat us fairly. We have a sense of entitlement.  People who are supposed to do the right thing often fail us.  Banks fail, the stock market fails. People break the law and the speed limit.

So instead of stewing or wasting time plotting revenge, or stressing yourself into a heart attack, realize your time here on Earth is a precious gift. Move forward out of the "blame zone."  Instantly reverse your thought.  Choose to feel differenty and react differently. Choose your next step based on joy, no matter what is happening in the outside world.  The world can be collapsing in chaos, but you can choose to be CALM.  Choose to feel good. Choose to LAUGH. Then see what happens.

For me, having a pity party is the fastest way to hell. Instead I like to look up, see that the sky isn't falling, and realize it could be worse. Then find a way to laugh at yourself.  This too shall pass.

Take a deep breath and accept that this is what is happening for whatever reason, at this moment.  What doesn't kill you makes you stronger and wiser.  We don't have control or power over other people's screw-ups or pathology, lack of morals or unkindness. We only have control over our reactions.  We can choose to think good thoughts even about our enemies, and not resist anything going on at any moment.  Disease and stress (which creates biochemical pathways to disease) are created when we are in resistance to the moment: when we are wanting something that is not happening or trying to prevent something from happening, or not being in agreement with reality.  Acceptance is the key to serenity.

Cathy Gelbart finally accepted that the shopping cart was going to always be in her way in the elevator until the day she decided, this is a holy moment, "this is my daily duty -- to lovingly remove the shopping cart for others and to stop being annoyed at the faceless, nameless asshole who leaves the shopping cart in the elevator every single time they go shopping."

Cathy began looking forward to the shopping cart. It was her new mission, an act of selfless love to move it out of the way, and not to react or be impatient.  She began to laugh at herself for the way she had behaved all year — the way she had cursed and kicked the shopping cart; the hours of wasted energy spent imagining a confrontation with the selfish jerk who put it there.

So she changed her attitude and began to look forward to the shopping cart each day. And the minute she did this, the shopping cart never appeared again.

If we resist or fight or spend time retaliating, brooding, worrying, screaming, fighting anyone or anything (including the System, the Powers that be, the Republicans, the banks, the government, the insurance companies, the economy, the law) we stay entangled in a toxic relationship with the very people we most want to disengage from. We stay stuck, or as Emmet Fox says, "tethered to our enemies, by a ball and chain, like a prisoner. The more we rehearse our grievances over and over in our minds, blaming and shaming and regretting and cursing them -- the more power we give them with our thoughts. We are only hurting ourselves; it's our stress levels that affect our health. Long-term anger is not a healthy emotional state to linger in. Forgive and move on.

I love this:  Maximize your experience on Earth.  Thoughts have substance, and we manifest those things that occupy our thoughts. We are all creators of our own individual universe.
Success, physical and emotional well-being, happy relationships, and spiritual wisdom are affected by our environment. Proper guidance of universal energy is essential to maximizing our experience on Earth.

This is a link that will bring you to a Federal Court Summary of the takedown of a man who stole the actual identity of an Army veteran and pretended to be a war hero -- using the fraudulent moniker "Lt. Col.Richard Lewis" from Tennessee.  This man is not a Lt. Col. but he did actually plagiarize the Iraq War Papers written by the REAL Col. Richard Lewis. 

Celebrity Stalker, Cyber Criminal, Plagiarist, multi convicted felon...that smeared my best friend's name, Lydia Cornell, as well as names of several celebrities from Keley Grammer to Gene Simmons and Corbin Bleu.  Using the credentials of a true Army veteran Navy hero, a Military Federal Jag Attorney, this guy entered into court 3 years ago pretending to be the real attorney. If you think that was the most insane thing anyone would do...It gets far he kept adding people to his crazy lawsuit...including the judges that kicked him out of court, the judges that put out warrants on him for violation protective orders on many of us...he claims I threatened him and caused him physical harm. I never met him.

In addition, he constantly stole other people's copyrighted wildlife photos and published them as "his own" and sent them to Lydia to impress her with his amazing photography.  

My friend was tricked into meeting him.  Lydia Cornell, star of Too Close For Comfort and costar of 250 shows and films, most recently HBO's Curb Your Enthusiasm..  and a co star of mine in the past and in upcoming projects...has a heart of gold.  So when this impostor went to Beverly Hills to meet her as his dying wish (his first illness was a rare genetic thick blood disorder that he and only one other person in medical history suffered from) Lydia agreed to meet him at a local cafĂ©.  Little did she know he was a pro at the con con con game...even selling out his own kids, ex wives and the many victims before her and the rest of us.  She was going through a divorce and he offered to handle her simple legal paper work for he claimed to be a Federal JAG-C attorney.

Lydia Cornell is a major activist for many non profit and charitable causes.  She is a Physics master actually, but she easily gets hurt by men such as this felon/impostor...whom by the way, gave her his purple heart....that was later found to be an ebay purchase. He sent her his award winning essays on freedom and peace during his time as supposed Lieutenant Cornel Lewis.  The essays he plagiarized were from the true Military hero Lewis. What he did was change the War, The Military Branch, The dates and President's names....and the middle initial.  The man cannot write anything comprehensible, he can't spell...and he began a smear campaign on the internet accusing us of what he is guilty of.  Every polluted word he misspelled on Social Media and sites like Rip Off Report etc...were cruel, criminal lies.  This man attempted to be a hair dresser...I find anyone's quest for undertaking or perusing a challenging education for their desired work admirable.  

THIS MAN STOLE THE IDENTITY OF A LT. COL. in the U.S. ARMY: "Lt. Col. RL" the fraud, the first man convicted on Cyber Crime in Florida...and while serving time in jail, he was busted and convicted again!  He was committing the same crimes he was locked up for.... he never did get his Cosmetology license.  He did get a victim in Beauty School though...he married and divorced a lovely woman...that he slaps fraudulent lawsuits on.  Often and regularly.

When he was to appear in court to answer to multiple criminal complaints...he claimed that he had several strokes, hospitalizations...and now he was suffering from leukemia.  The judge reminded him of the restraining order stop smearing our names on the which he cried out via phone that he was IMPOTENT!  So, I guess what he cant do to women in court he cant do to them in bed either. 

There is an expose in progress about this man and what he has done to innocent people..
This man wants so badly to be badly he would attempt to destroy my friend...Lydia was my neighbor in Beverly Hills.  She saved my life because  that's what she does.  She is the real deal, the real hero...I was working on a series and was so addicted to cocaine and Whisky that she put everything on hold to help me.  I mean everything.  She did the Quantum Leap pilot and had other series casting directors that were wanting her for regular work. She stayed with me until hiatus on my show...Sent me back to Boston, To my grandmother and Mom....and I got better.  Little did I know, in my drug daze...that Lydia got clean and sober first...and cared enough to love a guy to wellness...and having faith for him until he could have it on his own.

So this is the woman this career criminal was hell bent on destroying.  He made sexual advances on her to which she politely declined.  His jealous rage over Lydia and her friends' fame...and with my close friendship with her that this man used to go into jealous rages filling social media sites with such venom and lies about me and her...

He publicly attacked Lydia Cornell on RIPOFF REPORT claiming she was a criminal. He committed slander and defamation on numerous websites claiming that she was a prostitute and even posted her home address -- defying crazy fans to attack her.  He threatened to "bash my face in." 

We were working on live shows at the time...and we were beginning to film a "sizzle reel" for a certain network.  At the time, Lydia believed he was really a true war hero and secret do-gooder. EVERYTHING HE SAID WAS A LIE. Lydia believed him, but thought his "war injuries" had caused lesions on his brain. Lydia kept reporting this information to her 'real' attorney who was working in cahoots with this "attorney/war hero/Jag-C military criminal attorney." HER OWN ATTORNEY PUT A GAG ORDER ON HER FORBIDDING HER TO PROTEST THE CRIMINALS HEINOUS SLANDER AND ACTIONS. 

This criminal would call her cell phone a million times until she answered and then say he was dying in his car on the side of the road in Glendale on his way to Attorney Nelle Paegle's office -- and he would make Lydia run to his side ...only to find the doctors said it was a miracle...but next time he wouldn't be lucky.

He began to claim that she and I and others threatened him and his minor grandchildren, stalked them,...etc....none of us live anywhere near Maynardville, TN.  Not even 1000 miles close...his claims of our harassment caused heart attacks, strokes and his cancer.  He posted Ustream videos about his cancer...leukemia, and how he was in chemo, and how we were causing him such harm.  Having some knowledge about the subject...I posted some questions regarding his condition and his appearance being unusual for his course of treatment...etc...and I also informed him what kind of cancer leukemia was and what it he had it all wrong.  Claiming to be on heavy chemotherapy which was radiation combined with oral medication...I found it odd that he had a buzz cut...with full eyebrows, beard, he was not at all gaunt, his pallor wasn't sickly etc...His answer was another video the next day with a fully shaved head beard and eyebrows...and yet another lawsuit threat to me.

EVERYTHING HE SAID WAS A LIE. Lydia believed him, but thought his "war injuries" had caused lesions on his brain

The thing is...many knew of his aliases on facebook.  It was there all truth unraveled...regarding his illnesses, his family situations and his state of well being.  There were daily videos of him partying at Tennessee barbeques, birthday parties, restaurants, Water parks...etc....In his illness he must have been so sick he forgot how sick he said he was...using that as reason for his inability to appear in court...and for his support of many claims in his lawsuit smear campaign painting himself as a stressed out victim...suffering from disease at our hands....

I wasn't going to write this much...the histrionic borderline subject of this article will be happy of the fame this will garner his name.

However, sorry Mr. "L"  You don't know my real name.  You know my professional name.  And I'm not famous...unless you remember the guy that played the leads friend...Or the airbrushed guy next to cologne or wrinkled clothing.. Either way...this will never catapult you to stardom.

I just don't want you to hurt anyone that you can really hurt.  You see, it wasn't long before we all realized hardly anyone was paying attention to you...and if they by chance came across your bullshit...they were all laughing batshit at you.  And it wasn't because of your was because sometimes people laugh when they cross someone so's a natural defense mechanism.  They were laughing because the alternative would be the tears for such a pathetic man...and his sad quest to be anyone but himself...and the sad tears for what you did to family and all those that bought your lies...The man that thought he was such a nobody he would hurt anyone that held out their hand in good faith...if it would make some local newspaper.

I laughed so hard I cried.  Not for you, Richard.  I cried for all the right reasons.

Henceforth, to cease to exist.
