Happy Birthday, Dad, Charles and Horacio!

Dad has done so much and so has Charles. Dad is 89 and Charles is 56! I will go into more detail after a long sleep. I have so much to do. I was crying after talking to Dad thinking that I don't want to lose him for another 11 years! I was hoping for a little tea and sympathy from Muffy but she was involved in a TV movie.

I can understand her situation when she doesn't have the time to feel sorry for herself when she has to bring up a family! She doesn't know how to help the situation as far as my own limbo. She wonders why I have not left this state. I don't know. This is my only home for right now :(

Dad isn't eager to see me unless I go "Down Under" with Muffy. Ron says that I need major medical and he is right. That will be thing to do when I wake up with Buffy yapping and whining in her fecal matter. She is in the kennel while I sleep so I don't have to look out for scheisse every where!

. I hate shit and I've been stepping in it. How can I ever be a father if I can't keep up with the shit and piss trying to house train this little wookie bitch. (ooh, now I sound so cruel but she gives me unconditional love that I only from Alene and Mom of course). It will be nice when she's house trained. Maybe I ought to have a box of litter for her to use when she's in the house and reward her with bacon bits or puppy chow soaked in bacon grease when she shits or pisses in the litter box!

Charles and Karen gave me such a nice book on raising a puppy with a place for her journal. (ie. "I stepped in her shit in the kitchen with my white sock as I felt something wet and soft underneath my foot. I had dragged and spread it all over the carpet until finally realizing I was In doo doo when the white sock with the excrement attached to it reached the carpetless hallway. I was wondering the best way to clean it all off without leaving any smell. Buy some alcohol to clean!").

I have never had to do so much cleaning in a long time . There would be no way I could be a house husband until the babies were off diapers.)
" You can't teach an old dog new tricks!"

Sometimes, I wonder what have I got myself into?
I have to remember that Buffy is a potential babe magnet when I take her to Hefner park on a sunny day! Hey that might lift me out of the doldrums after the reality checks from my father, my older brother and Muffy!
Another reason for her is when I feel lonely, Buffy will give me love so I won't have to be unfaithful and feel the need to give into temptation.
But Mike's was so full of sinful young temptations this weekend. Don't worry, Muffy!

It's a year later, February 7th, 06

My good friends in Serendipachi, Eliazar and Monica have a mischievous 2 year old born on the same day as my father and my good friend and neighbor, Charles. I had a good chat with Dad and he has 12 guests for his 90th birthday!
Right now, I'm struggling with my teaching as I seem to do almost every year, another ground hog year but I am praying that chess and my desire to help these children will motivate me to be here another year. The paranoia takes hold as I'm afraid that I can't keep up with everything and I worry that the powers that be don't want me to stay. I am happy that my assistant likes me and is loyal to me.

I thought that I would put this article about past life regression because I still hope that she is out there waiting for me and maybe when I find happiness she will be there.

past life regression
Past life regression (PLR) is the alleged journeying into one's past lives while hypnotized. While it is true that many patients recall past lives, it is highly probable that their memories are false memories. The memories are from experiences in this life, pure products of the imagination, intentional or unintentional suggestions from the hypnotist, or confabulations.

Some New Age therapists do PLR therapy under the guise of personal growth; others under the guise of healing. As a tool for New Age explorers, there may be little harm in encouraging people to remember what are probably false memories about their living in earlier centuries or for encouraging them to go forward in time and glimpse into the future. But as a method of healing, it must be apparent even to the most superficial of therapists that there are great dangers in encouraging patients to create delusions. Some false memories may be harmless, but others can be devastating. They can increase a person's suffering, as well as destroy loving relationships with family members. The care with which hypnosis should be used seems obvious.

Some therapists think hypnosis opens a window to the unconscious mind where memories of past lives are stored. How memories of past lives get into the unconscious mind of a person is not known, but advocates loosely adhere to a doctrine of reincarnation, even though such a doctrine does not require a belief in the unconscious mind as a reservoir of memories of past lives.

PLR therapists claim that past life regression is essential to healing and helping their patients. Some therapists claim that past life therapy can help even those who don't believe in past lives. The practice is given undeserved credibility because of the credentials of some of its leading advocates, e.g., Brian L. Weiss, M.D., who is a graduate of Columbia University and Yale Medical School and Chairman Emeritus of Psychiatry at the Mount Sinai Medical Center in Miami. There are no medical internships in PLR therapy, nor does being a medical doctor grant one special authority in metaphysics, the occult or the supernatural.

reincarnation and PLR

Psychologist Robert Baker demonstrated that belief in reincarnation is the greatest predictor of whether a subject would have a past-life memory while under past life regression hypnotherapy. Furthermore, Baker demonstrated that the subject's expectations significantly affect the past-life regressive session. He divided a group of 60 students into three groups. He told the first group that they were about to experience an exciting new therapy that could help them uncover their past lives. Eighty-five per cent in this group were successful in "remembering" a past life. He told the second group that they were to learn about a therapy which may or may not work to engender past-life memories. In this group, the success rate was 60%. He told the third group that the therapy was crazy and that normal people generally do not experience a past life. Only 10% of this group had a past-life "memory."

There are at least two attractive features of past life regression. Since therapists charge by the hour, the need to explore centuries instead of years will greatly extend the length of time a patient will need to be "treated," thereby increasing the cost of therapy. Secondly, the therapist and patient can usually speculate wildly without much fear of being contradicted by the facts. However, this can backfire if anyone bothers to investigate the matter, as in the case of Bridey Murphy, the case that started this craze in 1952.
