With the Hebrew Subtitles......Seriously this movie will change your life!!! Just try the parking thing. I NEVER, EVARRRRR have to look for downtown parking. It just "comes to me". Really, this movie needs to be seen. It has EVERYTHING to do with drumming.

So, after speaking with a buddy of mine, we were talking about Smart Cars and how he knew a woman at work who bought one and brought it in to show. I had never seen one, but I knew what they were... I am a huge car nut...The next day on my way home, I saw one!! Then on my daily outings I saw another one!!! How crazy? Well, it wasnt coincidence....I spoke with the same friend. He says he hates soft mushy apples. WE agreed Hard Granny Smith are the best. THey have that "snap" quality- the nbext day, while out with my GF, we walked into a Deli...they had one last Granny left...it was hard as stone and I enjoyed every bite!
The Secret makes me aware of the things that I want in life and I dont stumble upon those things- I bring them to me!

Napoleon Hill coined the phrase "You Are What You Think" if the book "Think And Grow Rich" back in the 1930's.

It's the same idea as the video here.

You should all check it out. It's required reading for any entrepreneur.

if your easily offended by this dont watch but i find it funny.

personally all this stuff seems half way between Scientology and obsession. all about how you've been lied to for your entire life and this is the truth behind everything, etc. And isnt this whole thing very relative to luck, following after your personal ambitions and odds? and this is just seeking to make reason for it. Maybe thats just my synicle view thats been brainwashed into me. and my friend who believes this seems to have the worst luck of anyone i've ever known. oh well, my 2 cents...

Its the exact same principle as praying, except instead of a "God" giving you what you need, "The Universe" is giving you what you need. Its applying metaphysics to the basic concept that those who work the hardest, stay positive, and dont give up are the ones who will always succeed.

Does positive thinking help you receive what you desire? Of course!
Does positive thinking help you stay on task and get through difficult times? Definitely!
Does the ability to let go of tension, worry, and control help in drumming and in life? Absolutely!

Is the energy of "The Universe" reading your mind and altering reality to meet your demands? Definitely not.

i know! i fell off the face of the earth me thinks. I'm alive and well. Things are going okay. I took a break from school as of late, and am just drumming in my spare time of when the feeling strikes. Guess i was driving myself too hard. But i'm doing alright. Health is getting much better sill in a battle over cancer but i'm feeling much better.

How has everyone been?
