DON'T WORRY: ENTHUSIASM and COURAGE CHANGE YOUR BRAIN WAVES


Worry is ingratitude in advance. ~ Who said that?  
Enthusiasm and courage actually change your brain waves, which means you can sculpt your own reality if you'll just STOP when you are in panic or stress, take a time-out and breathe.  Stop and center yourself. Mentally claim dominion over your reality.
Fear is "False Evidence Appearing Real" and you have nothing to fear. I have been through a lot of stress lately with my mother being rushed to ER, and with our sweet dog Chazzy's sudden death. Also, the fear of financial insecurity that seems to pervade all our lives as we navigate the new economy -- I'm accidentally running a sober recovery house. (More on that later.)
But I've experienced absolute transformation when I surrender my worries and fears to a Higher Power. I call this force GOOD or God, but you can call it LOVE or Nature. The important thing is to realize you are not alone, and you are loved. Use all of us - picture ALL your loved ones as your HP (Higher Power.)  Picture all the good guys of mankind as your higher power.
I have spine-tingling, first hand evidence that miracles are natural laws of the universe. What I call "a miracle" is simply the amazing secret knowledge that there is a law of nature that actually rescues me when I am stressed or in fear. It actually heals my body when I depend on this power. When I relax and 'let go" and pray (which means I yell HELP) or silently cry out to the Universe for help — help always comes.  And when I help someone else, my suffering vanishes.
 "Share your pain you cut it in half; share your joy, you double it."
AND don't forget this: "You can be attractive even if you’re not good looking because if you radiate love you attract people! (That’s a joke I wrote.) Scientists have discovered that brain activity produces waves that are measurable according to your level of serenity or agitation. And Einstein said, “No problem can be solved on the same level it was created on.” In other words, you can't fight fire with fire; you can't cure alcoholism with more alcohol; you can’t start a war to create peace — you have to go to a higher level — a spiritual or diplomatic solution. Or as George Carlin put it, “Fighting for peace is like screwing for virginity.”

PLEASE join me, TIny Lister, Richard Pryor, Jr. and our wounded veterans and thousands of amazing people in THE BIG RED CHALLENGE in Lincoln, Nebraska on April 26, 2014.

Please sign on and donate whatever you can to show your support of our military veterans who have lost limb and leg and more.. our HEROES!!

Veterans at Home, on a Mission of Compassion 

By TINA ROSENBERG

Rachel Gutierrez was an army sergeant in Iraq, but back home in Phoenix she leads a platoon. At 2:30 in the morning last Oct. 18, members of the 1st Platoon Phoenix   gathered at an all-night McDonalds in a bad neighborhood downtown. Their mission was to comb the streets for chronically homeless veterans (who tend to sleep in groups but scatter during the day) and register them to get housing and other services.

HOW TO OVERCOME FEAR, STRESS AND WORRY ~ CELEBRITY IN AMERICA ~ THE LUST FOR FAME

Every morning when you wake up, immediately think of something to be grateful for. My friend lost her eyesight and has no vision, so she created an inner vision: a second vision radio show to find the lost dream inside her. 
List 5 things to be grateful for. Add a new one each day and really feel how lucky you are. 
You can see what the power of focused energy can do in an emergency: if someone is stressed, send her love and light in a quiet, caring way. It comes from your own thought about the person. You have to see them as whole, relaxed, healthy and resilient. Within minutes the person begins to relax, her face brightens up, she is becoming lighter. This is what some call ‘energy materializing.’
Enthusiasm and courage actually change your brain waves, which means you can be attractive even if you’re not good looking because if you radiate love you attract people! (That’s a joke I wrote.) Scientists have discovered that brain activity produces waves that are measurable according to your level of serenity or agitation. And Einstein said, “No problem can be solved on the same level it was created on.” In other words, you can't fight fire with fire; you can't cure alcoholism with more alcohol; you can’t start a war to create peace — you have to go to a higher level — a spiritual or diplomatic solution. Or as George Carlin put it, “Fighting for peace is like screwing for virginity.”
After my TV series ended, I dropped out of acting to avoid the terror of auditioning. But every now and then a juicy role like Howard Stern’s “The Phantom Dildo” would come along. I was furious with my agent for submitting me for such a sleazy MTV pilot, but then I thought, “I better hurry and get ready.” When I didn’t get the part, I was crushed. Nothing is worse than not getting a part you don’t want, that's beneath you."
There was an agent at APA who wouldn’t represent me unless I was dating someone famous. “Are you dating anyone cool who can make you hot?” he asked.
“Just Nicolas Cage,” I replied. 

“Okay, that will work,” he said. “But if he dumps you, we dump you.”

SEX TALK at the HOLLYWOOD SHOW:



I am exciting to be directing an upcoming indie film that I wrote, as well as bringing these projects to life. Am mulling over two reality shows and a hybrid reality comedy show that a producer approached me about.

Have finally finished writing three new humor books and am about to start pre-production on an indie film I'm directing. Also am co-starring in two indie films coming up: "Thug in Love" a film by Mike Timm and "Moon Over Atlantis"
