|Health Means Taking Responsibility For Every Single Decision
It Is The Pathway To Paradise
|January 14, 2016:
Write it on your heart
that every day is the best day in the year...
This new day is too dear,
with its hopes and invitations,
to waste a moment on the yesterdays.
- Ralph Waldo Emerson -
|May 10, 2015 - Hi. This "Meet Ken" page is simply a part of my website where I have recorded my thoughts and ideas and beliefs etc. over the years ever since I started my business. Kind of like a journal I guess...
For me it has been and was a very enjoyable and amazingly beneficial thing for me to do all this time. In just a few words, all of this writing here is like whatever I was going through every day...I would simply write on this page to get it out, to verbalize it, to record it. Doing it would for some reason would really help me incredibly so! I look back on all of this writing as kind of like a memory of everything I went through and learned and experienced ever since I started this business. The reason for doing so, at the time, was as much for other people as it was for me. I felt and thought that by writing these things, other people would be helped as well. In any event I feel really awesome about all of this. To be perfectly honest (as I always am and always will be)...these days I am a much different person. I do not feel that need to write my thoughts and experiences here anymore. I was thinking of removing this page today as I am updating the website, but after some thinking I decided to keep it here. Just in case anybody will derive some benefit or enjoyment from reading it. These days...thank God, I am thankfully over and finished with my past life which was truly a LOT of suffering and work and stress, etc. Now I only am excited and really looking forward with ultra anticipation to moving to the Philippines, as it has been my dream for such a long time. Who knows, I might get back into this once I am moved and I have some time on my hands again. For now, this is just my past writings which I am certain does let people know what I am like, so hence the page title "Meet Ken" is quite accurate. Enjoy!

There are some things in life which time alone can teach a person about, such as for instance: EVERYTHING.
October 21, 2012:
Here is the last of the past "entries" which I had wrote before now, during last year, but never got a chance to update my website during that time, (simply too busy, which was and still very much is the story of my life...) and which will recap, and finalize that period of my life up until now:
“So as through a glass and darkly, the age long strife I see, Where I fought in many guises, many names, but always me.”
General George S. Patton
(This very very closely and accurately describes how I see and relate to past lives and re-incarnation)
In simple language, all it comes down to is faith.
The deep, convicted, firm, unbendable, unflinching, FAITH, that you will be able to overcome whatever happens to occur to you in this life.
This is everything life contains or ever will contain!
FAITH, or a lack of FAITH.
Everything occurs as a result of that. (alone)
Faith is that all-powerful magic that can overcome utterly everything preventing your life from becoming perfect in every way!
All you must know is this: GOD will NOT ever fail in His promise to you.
Keep working, and striving, and always believe in THE power of GOD.
Your faith shall make everything o.k.
“A democracy is always temporary in nature; it simply cannot exist as a permanent form of government. A democracy will continue to exist up until the time that voters discover that they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates who promise the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally collapse over loose fiscal policy, (which is) always followed by a dictatorship.”
The whole secret of being happy is this: think of other people as your very best and dearest friends. (no wonder I have been so horribly sad...)
Yes there is a lot of wrong, evil, unjust, devilish, and bad stuff. You bet. Wow...it is totally beyond belief. No doubt. But...yes, there is also a lot of right, good, just, godly, and stuff. You bet. Wow...it is totally beyond belief. No doubt.
Life is a long hard hassle-filled nightmare of pain suffering grief and misery, and GOD I just love it! :) :) :)
Why do people fall in love? Because that is the whole purpose of life. To be in love!! :)
Man needs those ideas that promise a utopian reward. These ideas are what are referred to as being "wierd" or "impossible" or "impractical" ideas.
Troubles, frustrations, difficulties, delays, and the accompanying pains and sorrows that go with them are simply great signs of positive progress towards a goal!!
Battling against the non-stop, incessant, brutal, oppositions of enemies and opponents...tends to make a person weary, sad, and eventually...very very happy, healthy, successful, and strong.
"What actions are most excellent? To gladden the heart of human beings, to feed the hungry, to help the afflicted, to lighten the sorrow of the sorrowful, and to remove the sufferings of the injured." (Al-Bukhari)
“Of all the means I know to lead men, the most effectual is a concealed mystery. The hankering of the mind is irresistible.”
—Adam Weishaupt, founder of the ILLUMINATI

One human being. That's all I am. BUT! - me know this: everything in this world...CAN indeed BE attained...IF me does not ever become so depressed...and sad, and frustrated, and mad, and upset, and weak, and exhausted, and beat down...demoralized...lost...AND non-confident...AS long as myself keeps trying, and KEEPS the faith and NEVER gives up. EVER!...I KNOW I shall win eventually, and attain everything I want. Yes, I am only just one guy...yes, but actually. There is nothing and NO-ONE, IN the whole world, who can stop ME. From attaining. WHAT I WANT.
Everything really depends upon this: everything daily life of yours. PERIOD. How is it? How is yours this day? If your life is simply horrendous. Horrible. EVIL. NASTY. Awful...suffering. Well...it is REALLY REALLY HARD to attain. Anything! So...what then MUST BE DONE is this: attain first having that life, that daily life of yours, BEING GREAT. Before anything ever shall be BETTER in your daily life...you MUST do something...TO ensure it IS! REALLY A LOT BETTER. GET TO IT.
TO BECOME HAPPY. TO BECOME GENUINELY PLEASED, and really satisfied with everything. It is absolutely essential. You first become pleased with every single thing that you do. Unless that is taking place...everything simply is another useless wasted life time. Start now to ensure everything that you do IS RIGHT always! Then and only then...shall you become happy, genuinely pleased, and really satisfied.

They say "He who dies with the most toys wins". WHAT A LOAD OF CRAP. OH GOD...What they should say is "He who does not become fooled by this world wins".
The reality is brutally horrible. BUT...all these disgusting evil powerful PEOPLE...keep everyone brainwashed, and hypnotized, and LULLED into a state of ignorant, foolish, compliance. God bless those true souls who resist...rebel...fight...and stand up to these BASTARDS. Stay together. ONLY with the people you really respect...and really truly love. The rest ALL are absolute fools. Stay away, far FAR away, from all fools.
GOD: wow. Who in their right state of thinking, could EVER believe, THAT GOD does not exist? HA. To me those people ARE basically on the level of an insect!
WHY do I do everything I do? Because I really really desire something, very badly. What do I desire? To attain the heaven God promises for all His creation. That is everything I am doing. How about you?
God...THANK YOU. THANK YOU. So much.
Youth, what is youth? It is that stage of a person's life when they are happy! Ha-ha!!
January 27, 2011:
(There was quite an interlude where I did not write anything in here. WOW. What a year it has been...Wow. But anyway, everything is settling down now again for me though, so, well, I will start again once more with my "Meet Ken" writing...)
Ah...the most valuable and most important aspect of this life and this world without a doubt is the next life and the next world. Why do so few people seem to catch onto it? :)
Truth is like realizing to your absolute utter shock and surprise and dismay...that no-one else is to blame for any of your time spent on earth. The truth is: everything, every single experience...from your birth until your death is simply your own past karma being experienced. Also: everything good and everything bad INDEED!! simply is everything that you once did good, and everything that you once did bad. Try and prove me wrong...try.
Whatever good you are able to do in this life, will be indeed...your reward in your next life. Likewise...whatever bad you are able to do in this life, will be indeed...your punishment in your next life. Some folks just do not BELIEVE this. Oh well...they will INDEED learn one day.
I appreciate every person that has ever bought a product at this website. I feel like if I could somehow, I indeed would personally thank them and shake their hand and tell them that I LOVE them!! (a lot) Because...really. Those people ARE the ONLY good thing that has happened to myself in my lifetime. That sounds strange and sad and wierd. It is actually totally true though. I LOVE my customers. :)
|February 13, 2010:
Heartache is like everything in life that makes you quit trying to become the greatest human being you possibly can. What a ridiculous thing. Let not heartache nor heartbreak nor any other hurtful thing ever cause you to quit trying to become the very greatest human you can be...because it is indeed the sole purpose and reason for us being here upon this planet earth, to become the greatest human beings we possibly can. BAN HEARTACHES! Ha-ha.
"I wish to preach, not the doctrine of ignoble ease, but the doctrine of the strenuous life, the life of toil and effort, of labor and strife; to preach that highest form of success which comes, not to the man who desires mere easy peace, but to the man who does not shrink from danger, from hardship, or from bitter toil, and who out of these wins the splendid ultimate triumph."
- Theodore Roosevelt
It ain't easy...oh man you better believe it...it ain't easy...HOWEVER! IT'S WORTH IT. You better believe it's worth it!!
Depression, disspointments, sadness, pain, frustration. Can pound you down...can make you stop believing in everything that is good. Don't do that. For God's sake...don't do that. KEEP ON BELIEVING ALWAYS! In everything that is good.
Be strong - stay strong - it is the only way - believe me, there is no other way!!
Death and failure are very much similar and alike. They cause you to believe wrong! They cause you to give in and give up! That is so wrong...so very, very wrong! Never give in, and never give up. Passion and strength and intensity are born and created within the storms of time and the shadows of death and failure. I repeat...NEVER, ever, ever give up!
Re-birth occurs at the most in-opportune time! It is always darkest just before the dawn! Just when everything appears to be over, when everything strikes you as being hopeless, and simply impossible, then is when through gut-wrenching courage and faith and strength miracles can occur and changes happen. Keep the faith, oh kindred faithful earth traveller. KEEP THE FAITH.
Happiness is everything. Remember that! It is not anything else. As long as you are indeed happy...you are indeed perfect! So?...stay HAPPY.
Is there anything else to remember, to know?? NOPE.
CAN’T CHANGE TIME...ALL YOU CAN DO IS CHANGE YOUR OWN SELF.
Destiny is where your passion leads you.
AS LONG AS A PERSON NEVER GIVES UP AND CONTINUES MAKING EFFORTS TO OBTAIN HIS DESIRES...THE PERSON SHALL EVENTUALLY INDEED OBTAIN THEM.
"Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time."
Thomas A Edison
I do not know every single thing about life. But I do know this: to succeed in this life requires one thing: to keep hoping, and to keep trying, and to never, ever, ever, quit doing those two things, ever.
There is more happiness from giving than there is from getting. Blessed is the person that can give.
In all things...follow your passions. Otherwise it is just a servitude of an illusion. True passion is everything which leads to greatness. Following something else simply shows that you are someone who has decided on living a life of servitude, and futile things: a subservient, spineless, and compromising, slave.
A sense of duty is useful in work, but offensive in personal relations. People wish to be liked, not be endured with patient resignation.
Every time we love, every time we give, it's Christmas.
All love that has not friendship for its base,
Is like a mansion built upon the sand.
There is only one happiness in life, to love and be loved.
There is no remedy for love but to love more.
We can only learn to love by loving.
November 9, 2008:
There is nothing
To succeed with
Every little single thing
It is more difficult
To obtain courage
Than it is to obtain any other accomplishment.
Good will expressed
Towards your fellow men and women
Is the answer
True happiness is earned
It is wisdom
It is knowing you could not have improved a single thing even if you were able to
Because indeed, you did your true best
The whole secret my friends is this: try to make this world a better world always. Do not stop. Ever. That is what you will find eventually...a world which is better.
Health is the result of constant belief in yourself
To attain a state of health, it is only requisite to have a strong belief, that it is indeed not only a possibility to obtain good health, but that it is the only thing you shall be.
October 22, 2008:
EVERYTHING in life is designed to make you SMILE!
The reason why it doesn't work out
Is just you
Never ever allow yourself to believe anything that is contrary to what is absolutely perfection
That is absolute insanity
The secret is to be constantly loving each moment.
It does not matter what the moment might be
What does matter is that you are simply loving it
There are no such things as disappointment, and problems
There are no worries, pains, or frustrations
There is no sadness
There is no suffering
You are happy and your life is perfect
You are healthy and you feel absolutely wonderful
You are achieving everything you would like to be achieving
You are feeling perfect absolutely all the time
Power of the mind
The whole reason
That you know all will be as you desire it to be
Simply control your mind
Simply remember not to react negatively
Simply be strong
Simply remember to be 100% positive every moment
There is no dream impossible to attain
There is nothing that you can not have
If you believe that you can have it
You are not prevented
You are not held back
There is nothing that is stopping yourself
Except that your belief may have been destroyed
Your belief it is
All it is your belief
If you can believe you can do it once again
You can do it once again
BELIEVE YOU CAN
BELIEVE YOU WILL
IF YOU BELIEVE YOU WILL
THEN YOU CAN, AND YOU WILL
I ask you now to lift up your eyes
I ask you to ask yourself
"Am I really not able to do this?"
You will find out
You will know
It is really able to be done
You can do it
Once you begin to believe you can once more
Peace: You do not know how awesome and beautiful it is unless it is gone
Every man's work, whether it be literature or music or pictures or architecture or anything else, is always a portrait of himself. --Samuel Butler
Success: getting over all the things that are so bad, and painful...it defies imagination.
Miracle: just a very long time trying.
The body mirrors your inner condition. Change the inner condition, and change your body.
How many "darkest hours" have you seen?
How many of them have been "just before the dawn"?
How many "impossibilties" have you seen?
How many turned out to be the "miracles" later on?
While you are here...look around. Make a conscious effort to really think about everything that is here for you. Remember...if not for yourself each moment of every day...making efforts...to look and appreciate and cherish and love everything here...maybe this time of yours will be just gone pretty soon, without any appreciation...cherishing and loving anything at all.
What's it all about?
It is about staying in the game.
It is about starting again.
It is about completing the race.
It is about finishing ahead of your competition.
It is about being victorious.
It is about winning.
It is about working out.
It is about training.
It is about coaching your own self.
It is about health, food, sleep, and strength.
It is about keeping in competitive shape.
It is about a dream.
It is about a vision.
It is about a goal.
It is about a destination.
It is about an ideal.
It is about your faith.
It is about you.
It is about love.
It is about becoming a champion.
It is about pride.
It is about sacrifice.
It is about integrity.
It is about becoming the very best.
It is about loving someone.
It is about trying your best.
It is about getting over pain.
It is about death, loss, heartache, grief.
It is about attaining even though the odds appear impossible.
It is about belief.
It is about fighting for what you believe in.
It is about accepting temporary defeats, but NEVER accepting permanent losses.
It is about feeling the weight and the loss and pain of dying...only to be born again
It is about crying...praying...fearing...and grieving...to be transformed again in spirit.
It is about losing...so that somebody else wins
It is about never ever giving up...ever.
The universal loving spirit
Is on this planet
Yes, right now
What could possibly be more important than suffering, sorrow, pain, and sadness?
I don't know of a single thing
If we all could be a big happy family
If we all could get along
What an amazing blessing and wonderful occurence
THAT would be!
August 20, 2008
It is not necessarily to have a perfect life that we are here.
It is to have a life.
Sacrifice: because you are believing that your love will overcome all, you choose to do only the right things, every single time.
Tenacity: courage and belief and resolve...turned into unstoppable strength.
Success: getting over all the things that are so bad, and painful...it defies imagination.
Happiness: love yours at the end of your life is able to forevermore feed all those ones who need it...
Hurt: you know the truth to our life.
Health: self control and unflinchingly determined persistent efforts made that are 100% committed to attaining everything in the world which are the absolute ultimate best.
Living: daily doing your best, and not ever stop doing that, ever!

"When you face your fear, most of the time you will discover that it was not really such a big threat after all. We all need some form of deeply rooted, powerful motivation - it empowers us to overcome obstacles so we can live our dreams."
Speaker and Author
August 8, 2008: (8-8-8)
I realize that there have been several actions in my life for which I owe public apologies. I would like to apologize for the following incidents:
One) In 2006, I was interviewing one Ms. Anna Floyd for a secretarial position when my pants accidentally fell down around my ankles as I was saying, "Ever seen one of these before?" Even though I was referring to my new Pocket Tape Memo Taker, I would like to apologize to Ms. Floyd for any grief this misunderstanding might have caused her. I would also like to apologize to the Pocket Tape people and their affiliates, and to International Hardwood Designs, whose floor my pants fell upon.
Two) Once, in Hawaii, I had sex with a hundred-and-two-year-old male turtle. It is hard to argue that it was consensual. I would like to apologize to the turtle, his family, the Kahala Hilton Hotel, and the hundred or so diners who were eating at the Hilton's outdoor café.

You notice that everything in this life seems to be opposites? Black and white, good and bad, beautiful and ugly, etc. Well...I think that for anybody to experience attainment of their desire...it is a reality of this life, that they must experience the opposite of their desire, before they will attain it. Why that is...I don't really know. But it sure explains most of the bad things that have happened within my life. Because I wanted to attain something so badly...it just so happened that I then experienced the very opposite of it. I had to (for some reason) find out and be truly aware of exactly what it is like, to be or attain the polar opposite of what it was I was so very intensely wanting.
Stomach: A slave that must accept everything that is given to it, but which avenges wrongs as slyly as does the slave.

When diet is wrong medicine is of no use.
When diet is correct medicine is of no need.
- Ancient Ayurvedic Proverb
You will become free if you can overcome all of the heartaches, and pains, and challenges, in your life.
So...just do it!!
August 2, 2008:
The human spirit is capable of (literally) enduring anything and everything and capable of (literally) attaining
anything and everything it wants as long as it always keeps believing and never ever ever EVER! gives up.
Life is a canvas! We are given a blank clean canvas when we are born. Then as we grow up, we make mistakes, we put some messy, ugly stains upon the canvas. But...the canvas is still (and always will be) completely clean, and as snow-white and virginal as that innocent and beautiful day on which you were born. All of the stains which you have put onto the canvas...are simply the mistakes and imperfections that were needed (because of your...still unknown as yet, hidden, esoteric, spiritual nature) for you to know and learn about so that you could develop and grow into your true potential. At times yes, it may appear that this past paradise that you knew so very, very, well once back when you were born has dissapeared and will never be seen again. That is not so. That canvas is your human soul and it can never dissapear or be lost. IF you really, actually, (and, VERY sincerely!)...do have faith!
Why are some of us living lives that are less than perfect? Because of this reality of life: you are your own life. In other words...what you see is what you get! If you are seeing things which are less than perfect...you are seeing what you are.
I am exceedingly pleased and proud to announce to you that I have graduated from the "Harvard School Of Hard Knocks". I majored in FATIGUE. I now know everything there is to know about fatigue. I am a qualified, certified, Fatigueologist.
What is Fatigue?
When all else fails...what else can one do?
Just, to thine own heart stay true...
What is happiness?
Happiness, like a spore...only grows in an environment that is fertile, and supportive of it.
Like a spore...it can blow in from any direction, come from anywhere, be from any place.
A spore is an unseen aspect of your own self, which you are vaguely, subconscioulsy, aware of, but...is not physically present in your environment, as of yet. It will blow in and make it's presence felt and known, as soon as your environment is fertile, and supportive of it. Then the spore (happiness) will land and start to sprout, grow, and bloom into a magnificent, beautiful flower.
Everything is for a reason
Though it never seems to be
When it is happening
Everything is fair
Though it never feels like it
When emotions control
Everything is a miracle
Though it is hard to believe
When pain is all you feel
Everything is perfect
Though it is impossible to sympathize
When your life is hard
Never ever give up
Never ever despair
Never ever feel defeated
Never ever care
Never ever get overwhelmed
Never ever feel lost
Never ever be negative
Never ever count the cost
Never ever give up
Never ever despair
Never ever feel defeated
Never ever care
IT IS NOT THE BIG THINGS THAT MATTER
SUCH AS, LOTS OF MONEY,
LOTS OF FUN, LOTS OF FRIENDS,
LOTS OF ACTIVITIES...
it is the little things that matter
such as being peaceful,
being happy, being satisfied,
and being healthy
I know it has been said before
in a lot of different ways
but, thought I would say it once again
All that is important is you
Damn! Why could I not have been like all those greedy, selfish people who only think about their own self?
The thing about any kind of human interaction is that there is more to it than first meets the eye. There is always a give and take which extends far beyond what is commonly imagined. Which means that there are spiritual and emotional aspects to every relationship which also must be considered.
Just because it appears to be overwhelmingly difficult and impossible does not mean that it can't be done. Get busy, get realistic, get smart, get working and devote yourself to your task. You can get it done, and you will get it done.
The valleys are low...and the mountains are high.
When you are deep within a valleys shadows, remember that as long as you keep walking,
you will be coming to another mountain high soon eventually.
It is happiness alone that improves the situation.
Remember that. It is not money, not success, not possessions. It is happiness.
Strive for happiness with everything you do.
The thing about a dream is that it does not matter what gets in your way. You will find a way to overcome it, and attain your dream. Obstacles such as pain, fear, death, etc. are secondary. The primary importance is simply that you will attain your dream.
The mark of a person's nobility is their ability to make other people feel noble.
When things are looking their worst, and there is no hope in sight, that is when the strong simply keep their faith and forge on to prove once again that they will not be defeated by anything or anyone in this world.
It does not matter how long it takes, it does not matter how difficult it is, it does not matter how many times you fail, or fall, you will always pick yourself up again, and attain exactly what you want. It is very worth remembering this.
It is not money that people covet
It is happiness
Money gives a person freedom
However...nothing gives a person happiness
Except recognition of their worth as a worthy human being
What matters not much is thoughts that enter the mind.
What matters very much is the feelings that pervade one's soul.
Therefore, pay no attention to your thoughts.
And, pay very strict attention to your feelings.
It matters not so much
What you do
What matters is
Whether or not your conscience approves of it
Life is work. Life is not easy. To succeed at living requires a lot of effort, stamina, and persistence. Keep working. Do not ever quit. Ever...
Your life will be as it is meant to be then. Always.
Paradise is not money
Paradise is not wealth
Paradise is not material things
Paradise is health
Paradise is not love
Paradise is not friends
Paradise is not sex
Paradise just never ends
What is success?
It is not power, it is not money, it is not fame.
It is not sex, it is not enjoyment, it is not success.
It is peace of mind, it is soul contentment, it is the luxury of a clear conscience.
It is self-control, it is honesty, it is living your life for the one truth.
HEAVEN IS INSIDE OF YOU. YOU MUST ATTAIN IT WHERE YOU ARE. THEN YOU CAN GO ANYWHERE AND IT WILL STILL BE THERE.
Accomplishing something without integrity is like having money without being happy. It is complete insanity.
Integrity without accomplishing anything though still is a very nice and admirable accomplishment.
After 5 years of running a business it came to me out of the blue one day..."Wow! I am running a business. How did I ever learn how to do this?".
"I adamantly and firmly claim that by keeping a decided and knowing mind you will in the end attain what you are searching for and that alone (attaining what you are searching for) is the one thing that matters."
You can't change time
But you can keep trying to do the very best you can do every day until your last breath
"THE SECRET TO LIFE"
Simply Remain Committed To Not Giving Up Ever...Keep Doing Your Absolute Best and Try To Remain In Control Always, At Any Cost. Develop Strength...Develop Intelligence...Become A Wise Person. Never Let Any Other Human Being Treat You In Any Way Which Is Hurtful...And Keep Believing Always There Is A Truth To Life And That If You Are True To It...You Will Attain Every Single You Desire, Eventually. Do Not Die. Do Not Go Insane. Do Not Lose Your Mind. Be Strong, Prevail, Attain Your Desire At Any Cost. Prevail...Do Not Go Crazy!
Happiness is not dependent upon possessions. Happiness is dependent upon doing right things.
The value of females is nothing except this: happiness...the rest is all just a disgusting, and evil, deception.
The value of males is nothing except this: goodness...the rest is all just a disgusting, and evil, lie.
What is a friend? Anybody that does not make you feel awful. Period.
What is a fool? Somebody who does not believe that our own inherent nature is from god.
Courage is the difference between happiness and mediocrity.
Each one of us enters this life
The same way as everybody else does
One day...you are just there...
From that moment onwards
We have this experience called living
To experience and enjoy
Time is the experience
Of seeing who we are
By experiencing each moment
While we wish upon the stars
To bring joy into this life
Is the purpose of living
To do your best
Is the purpose of you
To attain an accomplishment
Is the purpose of time
To become the best possible person you can become
Is the purpose of each of us
More than anything else, I believe, it is the repeated...depressing, demoralizing, pains of life that make it completely necessary to remind oneself always that "this too shall end".
No matter how horrible and sad and hopeless and depressing it may appear to you at the time...you will indeed find a way to get over everything that stops you from attaining your desire. That is called the price, or the agony...of attainment.
It all depends upon your strength.
Your strength depends upon mind's control.
Control your own mind. Make sure that you never ever forget: "this too shall end"!
No matter your state of mind, no matter your state of body, no matter your state of soul, you still need to serve, respect, and love other people because that is the basis of life...to serve...respect...and love someone else.
When your state of mind, body, and soul are less than perfect...you still must remain committed to doing everything that you possibly can to do that. That is the basis of success. If you do not do it...you will not succeed.
Sadness is a silent killer. Sadness is a destroyer of all that is proper, good, and correct.
In all situations, in all cases, at all times...guard against sadness, frustration, depression, and feelings and thoughts of spite. Always, ALWAYS...remain positive, eager to be good, and happy. It is the only way!
Health is dependent only on the attitude of being healthy. Have an attitude that you are healthy, and healthy you will be. Have an attitude otherwise, and ensure that you be otherwise.
Recognition comes. Friendship comes. Love comes. Truth comes. Reward comes. Justice comes. It just takes a very long, long time.
Pain comes. Heartbreak comes. Agony comes. Injustice comes. Sadness, cruelty, loneliness, ill-health, betrayal comes. However...it does not last forever. It just lasts a very long, long time.
Peace begets happiness.
Happiness begets love.
Love begets success.
Success begets compassion.
Compassion begets heaven.
Heaven begets health.
Health begets everything best.
Everything but love
Looks real cute
Everything starts within
You will not experience anything on the outside
Until you know it is within you
And until you experience it on the inside
Can't forget about it...
Must always be responsible...
Must not let go...
Everything will explode...
Must drive myself harder and never relax...
Can't be bad...
Intelligence of you
Decisions made now
That is the answer
Too much pain
Too much work
On the brain
Just control the brain
Just control each choice
THAT IS the answer
The Basis of Power:
Understanding What You Are Living For, And Not Living For Something Else.
Why are those people in my life?
Because within myself...they are here.
What is self worth?
It is reality...as achieved by experiencing existence according to a set of standards imagined within your own self.
It is the result of all the experiences experienced in this world.
It is self witnessing...except the witnessing indeed is determined according to what takes place within your life.
If the world makes you think that you are not worthy...this indeed creates a feeling inside of you, which is sad...dreary...and depressing.
If the world makes you think you are worthy....this indeed creates a feeling inside of you, which is glad...confident...and happy.
True self worth though only is gained by achieving a desired goal.
"Not to oppose error is to approve it; and not to defend truth is to suppress it;
and indeed to neglect to confound evil men, when we can do it, is no less a sin
than to encourage them." -Pope St. Felix III
The difference between feeling true love and feeling true desire is like the difference between creating an evil result and creating a miraculous result.
Beyond all the assorted niceties, and displays of love and affection, one truth lies. And that is merely, do the human beings actually love each other? If they do...there is no problem, no obstacle, no hardship, that will ever prevent...that love from manifesting. Because of the fact that love is not bound by physical, or spiritual, or any other dimension. If there is a genuine and true love...then it will by any means whatsoever...be fulfilled, and completed. What is love? Simply the heart's yearning to experience paradise. What about lust? Lust is an evil grasping...an evil hunger, and a totally unstoppable, and unquenchable desire. It is solely and exclusively of evil origin, however, it is so intensely...and so overpoweringly, so despicably...and so amazingly pleasureable...one can never deny such a powerful, and enjoyable appetite such as it. However. One must always have the awareness and the inner sense of knowledge. What is proper? And what is NOT proper? To search, and seek for all satisfaction...to experience and learn about all possible appetites known to man...to desire, and lust after...ALL known gratifications is not a crime, nor is it a sin. That is...as long as you always commit yourself, and are aware of, and are always knowing: What is actually decent and allright...and, what is NOT?
Yes, indeed, it is knowledge and that alone, which makes the difference between a sin, and an experience. Experiences are acceptable, and fine. Sins are NOT.
When a situation for all sake of appearances seems to be impossible...that is simply an emotional reaction, it is NOT the actual reality of the situation. What at that time has to be done is to not allow all of your emotions, to get the better of yourself.
Here is reality. Contemplate and make a decision. Then accept whatever is your decision. If you have made a decision because it is the best one...then be satisfied. Because...all will always be a result of your mental decision. When you have completed your decision, continue the same way once again.
It is not money
It is not material wealth you are looking for
It is consciensce
It is a clean consciensce
You are looking for
All good begins as an acknowledgement. Because of whatever experiences you have experienced...you make a firm...and acknowledged pledge of what it is that you really believe in.
Whenever you come up to another glimpse of death, doom or destruction, just remember, this is simply another doorway. A door always looks like it is closed...until it is opened and you can walk through it to what is on the other side of it. Always believe that the door will open, that you will indeed go through it, and that there will be a new and wonderful and 100% beautiful experience waiting for you once you are through it.
“Wisdom is knowing and not saying.”
Agony is horrible. However...finding a way to defeat it is wonderful.
People with brains...
acknowledge...they have the power
know...other people can not affect them, or their life
try...to do what they are fully knowledgeable about...to the best of their abilities
do not...believe any of this insanely ridiculous bullshit of this world
are...strong and proud and independent, and believe in TRUTH alone
People with brains...
know...the difference between right and wrong
believe...in one creator of everything
fight, and stand up for, and defend......all in this world which is proper, just, and the best
will not...ever give in or deny what is without a doubt right
because...they have a brain and they know how to use it
"All propaganda must be so popular and on such an intellectual level, that even the most stupid of those toward whom it is directed will understand it... Through clever and constant application of propaganda, people can be made to see paradise as hell, and also the other way around, to consider the most wretched sort of life as paradise." -- Adolf Hitler
"Liberty cannot be preserved without a general knowledge among the people, who have a right and a desire to know; but besides this, they have a right, an indisputable, unalienable, indefeasible, divine right to know that most dreaded and envied kind of knowledge, I mean of the characters and conduct of their rulers." -— John Adams
"Enlighten the people generally, and tyranny and oppressions of body and mind will vanish like evil spirits at the dawn of day. -– Thomas Jefferson "
"I am a firm believer in the people. If given the truth, they can be depended upon to meet any national crisis. The great point is to bring them the real facts." -- Abraham Lincoln
"Those people who are not ruled by God will be ruled by tyrants." --William Penn
The brainwashing of Americans is too effective a political ploy for the puppetmasters to suddenly let the truth get in the way. The pattern is clear: Say what you want people to believe for the front page and on TV (Such as Iraq's WMD's), then whisper a halfhearted correction or apology that slips under the radar. It is really quite ingenious in its cynical effectiveness, and American's only have themselves to blame for being a victim of it.
"A nation of well informed men who have been taught to know and prize the rights which God has given them cannot be enslaved. It is in the region of ignorance that tyranny begins." - Benjamin Franklin
The only way to obtain anything worthy is this: to set something worthy firmly within your mind and work with every last ounce of your strength, and energy, every single day to obtain it. Keep on trying, keep on trying, never give up. Every single experience will teach you more about the nature of life, and the knowledge and wisdom that are acquired as the genuine, sincere, efforts are made will ensure that you indeed, really do succeed.
What is money? With money anyone can get anything they desire. However...if you get money only by selfish and evil ways...there is never actually anything worthy attained. However...if a person works and earns money by genuine good intentions and work...all that is attained will be 100% good and 100% worthy.
My belief is this: every single experience that you ENJOY...is all that matters!! All of the wonderful feelings and memories and sensations that you experience in this life each day indeed are what is the ultimate blessing in this life. You should never allow yourself to not be mindful of or miss any of them. Instead...it should be always foremost in your mind to capitalize on them, and savour, and totally appreciate each and every single good...enjoyable...wonderful, moment in this life. It is those experiences which you experience each day, that are what is the very best of this beautiful, god-given, life. Do not ever, allow yourself to forget that it is the reason you are here to enjoy them all, all the time, everywhere...and always have a deep appreciation all of them, all of the time. Do not ever become so preoccupied or busy or stressed out that you allow all of these incredibly amazing opportunities in life to be NOT enjoyed.
Work: something that you do. Why? because of something you desire. The entire problem with work is that it is something that is usually quite hard to do. The whole wonderful thing with work is that with it you can attain your desires. But all work done only actually creates one thing: your physical body. This physical body that gets created (alone) is the one reward of the work you do. Everything else is just an exchange. For example: money is exchanged for your service, or for your labour. But it is this body alone that was created by the work which you did which is the real reward for you. When you do something...it is not done so that you will earn something...no, it is done so that your body becomes a certain way by doing your work. If you sweat and toil for years and years and years with (seemingly) no rewards...and gain nothing financially or materially but end up with a physical body that is content and happy...then that is your reward for you. In this world, nobody attains anything for free...you will not actually attain something if you do not work for it. If something is given to you...if something comes easily...these are only material things which you attain. These are not rewards. Your reward is ONLY the body that is created from performing your own physical work. (which is actually ALL work by the way, even if you think it is only typing at a computer...it is still (indeed) physical work)
If it was not for all of this evil that exists in our world...we would not have all these reasons to improve ourself, to improve our lives. Our worst enemies are people or events or circumstances which forces us to create better improvements within us and for our life.
Wisdom: always resist temptation, always believe in good, you will be allright. Always.

Charles "Tremendous" Jones
Speaker and Author
I don't know much about love. But I do know lots about hate. Hate is an emotion which hurts, it is painful. Therefore, I am quite sure that love is an emotion which feels good, it is pleasureable. Hate causes people to do horrible, hurtful things to each other, even to the point of actually destroying or killing other human beings. Therefore I am quite sure that love causes people to do fantastic, beneficial things to each other, even to the point of actually saving or healing other human beings. Hate is negative. It causes people to act and behave in negative ways, such as ...being fearful, being hateful of others, and suspicious, and being selfish, cold, rude, shallow, and rude. Therefor I am quite sure that love is positive. It causes people to act and behave in positive ways, such as ...being a good person, loving people, and being trustful, and being unselfish, warm, thoughtful, profound, and kind.

Every person I meet or speak to is either one thing or the other to me: a benefit or a hinderance. Some people are a combination of the two, so the question then becomes "What are you REALLY?!!". That is the whole question for me. If the person is truly a benefit, but contains qualities that are a hinderance, I will forgive the person for his/her faults or problems. But if the person is simply, purely, and obviously, a hinderance to myself...I have no choice but to 100% adamantly make sure that the person will not be of any further hinderance to me. That is what my life is: determine who are those who are of real benefit to me and determine who are those who are of real hinderance to me. Those who benefit me I will cherish and love and benefit them for the rest of time. Those who hinder me I will despise and detest and hinder for the rest of time. Every human being has been given the exact same chance to choose whatever they reason to be the best choice, the same as I have been given. If they (truly) choose! to be complete fools, and do things which are bad, I wish them every punishment and suffering possible. If they (truly) choose! to be nice, caring, and good-hearted people, and do things which are good, I wish them every reward and enjoyment possible. The reality of life? You have to watch out for the people who hinder you. You also have to watch out for the people who benefit you. Other than that, life is simply normal, usual, every day life; a piece of cake!
Power: what is power? I think it is the ability to change the conditions of other people's lives. You will notice some people have little, or next to nothing in the ways of power. Those people affect you this way: "oh my god...please make it so I do not have to be with them." Other people affect you this way: "hmmm, what is this power that this person has which is affecting me so strongly and positively?" How is power acquired? I think it is acquired only by this means: the person has experienced life and learned something important from it. They will then have a power of some kind. Why is power important to us people? Because we all are the same...ordinary human beings who need something. When we meet or find people who possess a power that can change our own condition from that of bad to one of good...we will treat people like those well. So power is important if you desire to be treated well by people. Why are there people who seem to possess power...yet, do not affect people in a positive way? In fact they affect people in a very negative way? What kind of power is that? That is simply bad power. It is selfish, evil, and lacking any qualities which are good. To be honest, my entire past life was 100% preoccupied with coming to terms with and overcoming power which is evil. Nothing disturbs myself more than people who use power to affect other people negatively. Conversely, nothing impresses myself more than people who use power to affect other people positively. In between these two opposite poles there lies all the rest of our mankind. I believe those people are simply those ones who for whatever reasons, have not ever experienced much life, and therefore do not possess much power. Life is a battleground. People who have attained power, utilize their power for either good or evil in this world. I see this every day when I look at the news of each day. Power struggles everywhere. Iraq, Afghanistan, Africa, Israel, Palestine, Russia, China, etc. It freaks me out to think that bad people have power and can use it. However...this is just life. Speaking of which...how is yours? I hope that all the folks who come to this website and buy things are enjoying a really good life.

If there is something that I have learned in my life it is this: people determine whether or not you are going to be happy. No matter what else you do, ensure that you always treat people the very best you can, otherwise it might all come back to you, and you might not be happy.
The things that I wish somebody would have told me before now: 1) This world is crazy...do not listen to anyone in it. 2) Do not worry about being like anyone in this world...for they are all crazy. and 3) Do not be serious about anything in this world...just keep yourself happy, and enjoy yourself. All the rest is just B.S.

Everyone has their own poisons, their own crosses, their own debts, their own tragedies, their own battles, their own crisises, their own diseases, and demons, their own pains, their own heartaches, their own hells. Everyone thinks that their situation is the worst, everyone believes they are the unlucky one. Everyone grieves. Everyone cries, aches, moans. Everyone thinks it is impossible for their situation to ever be changed, improved, righted. Everyone hurts...everyone is mortal. Except myself. - "I Am Batman!"

Most people don't act stupid: it's the real thing!
The reason many people are lost in thought is because its unfamiliar territory!
It's a good idea to save your money. One day it might be worth something!
Politicians are people who get sworn in and cursed out!
These days, the only time politicians tell the truth is when they call each other a liar.
The dollar will never fall as low as what some people will do to get it
And a real cutey from Adolph Hitler:
"We have no interest in oppressing other people. We are not moved by hatred against any other nation. We bear no grudge. I know how grave a thing war is. I wanted to spare our people such an evil. It is not so much the country of Czechoslovakia; it is rather its leader, Edward Benes. He has led a reign of terror. He has hurled countless people into the profoundest misery. Through his continuous terrorism, he has succeeded in reducing millions of his people to silence. The Czech maintenance of a tremendous military arsenal can only be regarded as a focus of danger. We have displayed a truly unexampled patience, but I am no longer willing to remain inactive while this madman ill-treats millions of human beings." April 14th, 1939

Life is a series of decisions. You choose whatever it is that yourself chooses and then you accept responsibility for that choice. Then life goes on. It is like that every single moment of every single day of your life upon this earth. This is my next choice now, to say to you this: use your mind, your intelligence, use your reason, for something that makes you feel GOOD. As long as whatever you choose makes yourself feel good...you will have nothing to regret...or be sad about. I can't think of anything more important than that. JUST DO WHATEVER MAKES YOU FEEL GOOD. Don't worry about all the rest of the utterly insane, ridiculous crap in this life. - Babaji Ken

Happiness, like success, only occurs when you are doing what you truly love. If you hate what you are doing, then at least have a dream, and make sure that you love your dream. Because unless there is love involved with what you do, you are not attracting the things to yourself that will be truly worth experiencing. So...make sure you always follow your love, so that you will always attract what is best for yourself into your life. There will be no agony, dread, or pain for you also...because whenever there is real true love there is joy, excitement, and pleasure. (everything that is "lovely"!)
It does not matter how bad things are, how sad you are, how bad you feel, or how hopeless everything seems. It does not matter how remorseful you are, how hurt, dissapointed, and utterly pissed off you are. It does not matter how used you are, how tired you are, how sick, ashamed, humiliated, battered, or absolutely useless you think you are. All that matters is: don't give up. Don't ever give up, even if you are dead and the whole world burns in hell. Just do not ever give up. I repeat - do not ever give up - that is ALL that matters.

-Henry David Thoreau
(Joke Of The Day):
Bartender walks into a bar, says "What'll I have?"
(Advice Of The Day):
Persevere with doing what is best...even if it kills you. Because it is better to be doing what is best and dead, than doing what is worst and alive.
(Observation Of The Day):
Why is it that all of the people who should be (by all rights)...flung into an eternal raging inferno in hell, instead are all the people who are making my life an eternal raging inferno in hell? Because (simply), all good things come to those who wait, and all bad things come to those who hate.
(Sermon Of The Day):
God is all fair, and all knowing, and (must be) all high on something really, really, strong...otherwise why would he be letting all of this go on?
(Tip Of The Day):
Do not waste your time trying to change anything about this world. Instead use your time constructively trying to change your own mind.
(Meditation Of The Day):
There are no problems. There is no suffering. There is no pain. There is no sadness or sorrow. There is only unrealized joy. (Really!)

("Should I write this? Ah, what the luck, sure I should!...")
Luck is nothing except determination, patience, and willingness to do what is right. It comes when it is supposed to, not when you expect it to. Luck is the difference between failure and success, and it is a reward for being wise. Luck is nothing other than due recompense for a job well done. Lucky people are not boastful, they are overflowing with love. Luck comes when you make efforts to make other people lucky. Luck is the greatest reward because you receive what you truly do deserve. Why are some people lucky and some people not lucky? Because some people have chosen to be lucky and some people have chosen to not be lucky. Luck is not popularity, fame, or worldly success, it is a satisfied mind. If you think some people are really lucky...think again. No-one is truly lucky unless they possess a peaceful, and satisfied mind. Those people are lucky and they truly deserve to be as well.
It is only my opinion of course, but I believe that love can truly cure anything and everything if only your belief that it can is strong enough.
I also believe it is a lot more important that a lot of people have a little bit of a chance, than a little bit of people have a lot of a chance. It is not so important that there are so many millionaires and rich people in this world as it is important that there are not very many people who are crying and starving in this world. In fact I would go as far as to say, "who gives a feathered duck about all the rich, famous, and beautiful people, when there are so many decent normal human beings out there alone crying, starving, and dying each night?" I believe when we stop placing importance upon all of the Hollywood stars and rich and famous people, and we start feeling compassion and love for all of the everyday common people in our world...all our troubles and sorrows in the world will cease.
In my opinion, the most beautiful and wonderful people in the world are all of the normal and everyday people in this world. Those are the real stars. You can take most of Hollywood and T.V. and famous people and toss them all in a creek, and there would not be much missing except a lot of hot air and huge egos.

December 18, 2006
I was just thinking today..."Why is there suffering?". You know why there is suffering? Because it gives a framework to living. Pain, suffering, and agony is what gives a life it's frame.
"Why is there sadness, sorrow, and loneliness, etc?". It is brought on by your own self so that eventually you will learn the nature of living, and learn how to live life without experiencing any more of it.
There is no such thing as
pain without a reason, suffering without a
cause, or sadness without justification. It occurs because of your own self and it is for the purpose of learning how to overcome it and live without it. Do not think there is no reason for pain and suffering except to torment you, etc. no...it is always there because there is something about your life which you as yet do not understand, and it is there to keep reminding you to learn about it so as it will not be a problem for you anymore in the future. Pain is god-awful horrible...the most disgusting and seemingly meaningless experience around, but it's appearance always signals something meaningful for you to learn more about your own self, and in the end, that is what it is about, to understand, and know more about your own self.

The forces of positiveness are the forces of light. They are: 1) love 2) compassion 3) unselfishness 4) generosity 5) caring
about other people 6) all things that are positive: health, happiness, safety, peace, security, harmony, etc. 7) all that is truthful and from the one god 8) courage, honesty, integrity, sacrifice, friendliness, fairness, setting a good example for other people 9) denouncing and protecting society from all that is negative.
The forces of negativeness are the forces of darkness. They are: 1) simply greed (the nature of ALL that is evil) and...2) selfishness. Everything in our world which is evil...negative...or darkness is simply that which is selfish, which simply comes from a personal decision to be greedy.
How to combat the forces of evil: 1) cultivate an attitude in yourself that is 100% good. 2) live a life that is 100% good. 3) do not allow yourself ever to harbour less than the very highest of good in your thoughts and intentions 4) Live each day only to make this life on earth a real heavenly life 5) never stop doing this.
"The world is a great mirror. It reflects back to you what you are. If you are loving, if you are friendly, if you are helpful, the world will prove loving and friendly and helpful to you. The world is what you are."

Survival is the battle of this world. It is the battle of good and evil. Victory is achieved by surviving. Though it may be difficult to survive if evil is prevalent everywhere in this world, if you are able to keep persevering and keep surviving, victory indeed will be yours. Victory does not necessarily mean defeating something, or someone, it simply means not being defeated. In other words, to keep yourself going, to keep surviving...to never succumb to outward influences. The power of will does not come quickly, nor does it come easily. However, it does come, as long as you keep yourself trying, and never give up. Where there is the power of will, there is all that you need.
What is more important than loving other people? Making sure that you love them like they deserve to be, and should be, loved.
Life is a test of your ability to stay calm, sane, and focused, when everyone around you insists on driving you out of your mind.
Strength is your only hope of survival. It is what it all comes down to. "Are you strong enough to survive?". That is what this whole thing really is.
MAY YOU ALWAYS SURVIVE! - Ken
Loneliness is a builder of character. Shame is a developer of confidence. Sorrow is a source of enlightenment. Anger is an instiller of life force. Humiliation and jealousy are double-headed serpents pointing the way to where weakness lies. Weakness is a souce of future strength. There is nothing negative as long as your attitude remains positive. Fear is the depository of knowledge. Pain is a way of developing your power. Heartbreak is the source of life's truth.
Remember in all things that a sense of humour is what you are really looking for...not this world and all of it's glory. Laugh on, laugh on...laugh on!...
May you laugh long, hearty, and loud...and always! Most of the rest of everything else is just a lot of pain and suffering and sadness. Laugh!

A ham sandwich walks into the bar. The bartender says "sorry, we don't serve food here".

Every time you help someone, it is an action of caring, it is never an action which is wrong, even if it ends up hurting you or causing you troubles and sorrows, because to help other people is a worthy action, and worthy actions never end up doing you any harm.

The greatest priviledge I can think of is having the opportunity to think highly of other people. The good vibes and positive energy and love which is experienced by knowing other people who deserve to be thought highly of is (almost...) better than anything else I know!
I should be paying my customers, not the other way around...for the totally incredible opportunity to be friends with them. It is literally unbelievable...the calibre of people that I meet through this business. I really hope that I make everybody who shops here feel as incredible as they make me feel. The customers at The Root Of The Matter are totally incredible. Have a GREAT DAY, Y'ALL!

Ken's "Sermon On The Mount": All there is in this world is FRIENDS. That is what ALL of the people in this world ARE. If you want to be successful, this is what
MUST take place for you: you MUST have a very sincere, and genuine... LOVE for all of your friends. Verily I say unto you: just because you hate a person, and you do not consider them to be your friend...remember, you still MUST be able to realize indeed that everyone is your friend...and, it is only by having love for every single person that you shall succeed.
Sucess does not mean having lots of things. It means NOT having things that cause you to fail. Succeed by doing what is the right thing to do...not by doing what gains other people's approval and acceptance. Do not worry about what other people think of you, worry about what you think of your own self. Do not ever despair or become negative in any way...just remember that eventually you will be able to do anything, as long as you keep giving it your best shot and never give up. (because it's true!)
Life is great...I am not sure about what a lot of people are living out there though...it looks like insanity to me.
"Sex-Drive": Sanity expressed as the desire to get the very best out of your life. What is "the very best out of your life"? Someone of the opposite sex who fulfills your needs.
"Drive For Thrills": Insanity expressed as the desire to get the very worst out of your life. What is "the very worst out of your life"? Someone of the opposite sex who does not fulfill your needs.
"Sense Of Humour": Intelligence. (PERIOD!!)
"Arrogance": Seriousness. (PERIOD!!)
"The Best": Anything or anyone that adds to your belief that there is truly good in our world.
"The Worst": Anything or anyone that adds to your belief that there is truly bad in our world.
"You": Your deepest, darkest, worst fears and pains, and everything that terrifies the living
daylights out of you.
"Everyone Else": Your highest, most profound, best wishes, hopes and pleasures, and everything that you fantasize about that will make your wildest dreams come true.
"Reality": One more day. One more need. One more try. One more succeed, (or) One more fail. One more moment. And another one after that...
"Herbs": HOLY F***!!! GOD...Thank You for these absolutely miraculous gifts of creation...
"Today": Get out there. Live. Enjoy. Go nuts. Cause a little trouble. Enjoy yourself!
"Brotherhood": Yourself and other human beings. It's your choice as to how you react to them. It's all up to you. It does not get any deeper or more profound than that. It is all just completely up to you.
"Fighting...Violence...War...Insanity": Oh what a pity. Look at all those people killing themselves! I am sure glad that my past karma is not like that. Phew! Pass me another cup of Yerba Mate, please.
"Passions": What a crazy, crazy life...look at all those people getting so serious and so dedicated and impassioned about everything. More power to them if any of it ever changes anything, but I think the only thing that will ever change anything is if more people become a whole lot less serious and a whole lot more enlightened.
"Enlightenment": The realization that this entire life is truly out of it's flipping mind.
"Ken's Herb Store": Glorified Kool-Aid Stand.

There is only one way to go: the way of being the very best you can be, attaining the very best you can attain, and enjoying the very best you can enjoy.
Thoughts, feelings, attitudes, and circumstances are just a state of mind. You must make certain that your state of mind is always positive, hopeful, confident, and eager to do the best that you can possibly do.
Negativity, fear, self doubt, impossibility thinking, and a lack of confidence will never ever bring about any good, therefore, do not allow yourself to harbour any of those negative things. In all things be positive! It is the only way.
Even if everything is totally hopeless or everything is horrible...keep positive! You will be eventually able to change things back to being every bit as positive as you are yourself.
Thinking positive is the most important thing!

I just arrived back from a 4 day stay in Korea last night. I want to say this, even though it might sound dumb, or stupid (but then again, it might sound that way simply because I am that way, and actually I think that is a very good way to be)...THANK YOU to all of my customers. I really appreciate you a lot.
I had an absolute nightmare of a time in Korea, and when I got back I was feeling absolutely horrible, and was in a very low state of mind due to a lot of things I won't mention at this time, (but suffice it to say that my disgust and anger and dissapointment at some of the people in this world almost drives me out of my mind at times...) and then I started looking at all of my orders and the e-mails that were waiting for me, and I spoke with some of my customers on the phone, and after this now I am feeling again fantastic! What can I say...I am amazed at how nice and friendly and supportive you are. My faith in human nature is completely restored!
Here are a few of my thoughts that came to me while I was in Korea. I wrote them in my diary in about 5 minutes as I was checking out of my Hotel.
How Korea Made Me Feel:
1) Forget All The Fancy Stuff. Remember That The Truth Simply Means To Be Happy.
2) It would take 40 lifetimes to experience all of the lies of this world. It is not necessary to do that. It is only necessary to try as hard as you can now to avoid all of the ones that are in your life at this moment.
3) Human beings are not so strong. Those who pretend to be strong are just living a lie.
4) Love for your fellow man is what it is all about, but evil is everywhere, and sometimes it consumes all of our strength just to be able to survive all of the evil.
5) There is not much in this world that is worth getting serious about.
6) The path is wide, deep, and long, but the truth is always near.
7) I got so wrapped up in the battling, that I forgot to take time to breathe.
8) The soul's desire leads us on a journey. We follow our desire until we attain what we seek. That is all life is.
9) God stands distant and aloof but is always willing to listen to what we say. Satan lives within and forevermore tries to tell us that He is the way. We have to choose between them. That is the way.
10) All the time we have to try to be a good person. But when it is too difficult, we must at least try not to be a destructive person.
11) Tragedy is a part of living, and it is a very important part, because a wise person uses it to to remember to never be presumptous and vain, but to be wise and careful always.
12) Adaptating to circumstances is the most important part of living.
13) The body is capable of doing anything it wants to do but the mind must BELIEVE that it can do it.
14) Time is just an illusion. There is no such thing. "Time" is just a creation of our imagination.
15) If you have ever wondered why things are as they are...it is simply because life always was, is, and will be a cold and merciless test of who is the strongest in our world.
16) There is a common theme in survival which can be summarized by this one word: BRUTALITY. It all comes down to summoning the brute strength which refuses to be defeated and destroyed.
17) Love is an unselfish emotion which we give to others. Desire is a selfish emotion which causes us to do anything at all to attain our own satisfaction. Both of them are noble and beautiful but the finest is when both of them are experienced simultaneously.
18) Flesh is the prison. Understand it, and rise above it's every limitation to be free.
19) The flame of love is the most valuable possession. I aspire to own the most of it of anybody!
20) The thing I like most about this life is the fact that eventually good always wins, and the truth sets us free.
September 22, 2006
What is it all about?
...All the pain, all the war, all the struggling, all the suffering, all the heartbreak...
It is all about LEARNING. You just keep on learning until you fall into a sobbing and pathetic heap and die. That is what it is about.
He who dies with the most memories wins!
Why did god create the two sexes? For each one to drive the other one crazy.
The human body is stronger that you can imagine. It is capable of doing anything. It is the mind that sometimes gets weak and gives in to negative thinking. If you keep your mind in top shape the body will stay in top shape also. Therefore...never think or imagine or believe anything that is less than the ultimate best and you will stay in top shape forever.
When you feel like it is all just too much for you...and the pain and pressure and agony almost wins...and you are so damn tired and fed up and frustrated...what can you do? The only thing you can do is to simply keep trying, don't stop, never give up, and keep learning and getting stronger and evolving into a more capable and better human being. When you get hit...fight on. When you feel like you can take no more...rejoice because indeed you are going to feel so damn awesome when you finally overcome that trial also. That's what life is...trial after trial after trial. I think God must be Perry Mason.
Exhaustion and frayed nerve endings: what happy people are made of.
There is no other way to get to heaven. You have to get there by being the very best person you can be, and that is not easy.
Ken asks the question: "What do I know?" I know that happiness is a hard thing to come by...but is worth everything it takes to get it. I know being weak sucks. I know you are only as strong as your capability of enduring everything in this world that makes you sick. I know that it is only up to you to attain your own success, because no-one else cares about your own success. I know the truth is what sets us free. I know a couple of good jokes...both of my parents. I know that if my brothers are supposed to be my friends, I will never again have any need of enemies. I know that good friends are earned by sincerity, and they are all that is needed in this world. I know I ramble on a lot and people think I am crazy, but I don't care. (I love it) I know life is a beautiful thing, and the best is yet to come.

Temptation: Everything in this world that makes you forget that being a good human being means to avoid doing what is wrong.
All forms of human suffering, hardship, and pain only serve to increase your depth of understanding of living. By understanding living on a deeper level, you are able to become a better person and learn how to live your life in a more fulfilling way. The darker the night, the lighter the day, the worse the pain, the further your progress along your way.
The final answer is always "persist, carry on, keep on trying, never give up, and you shall indeed one day succeed."
Tragedy and sorrow are life's way of making sure that you always remember what is important in life. You will be subjected to suffering until you finally realize your true purpose in life. Then you will finally embark upon a much improved destiny. - (Dr.) Alfred E. Neuman

The Secret Of Life (To Ken):
Stay positive, determined, and expectant that you are going to be able to attain every single desire in your life that you have ever dreamed of, even though more often than you would like you find yourself in situations that convince you beyond any shadow of a doubt that you do not have a hope in hell of ever being able to accomplish it.
What is youth but a crazy and rebellious pride that believes that it can accomplish anything it desires, and if anybody should ever doubt it's abilities youth proves it to them immediately with a conceited and satanic pride that it really can accomplish anything it desires!
What is old age but a sad and defeated modesty that believes that it can not accomplish anything it desires, and if anybody should ever believe in it's abilities, old age proves it to them immediately with a bashful and angelic modesty that it really can not accomplish anything it desires!
Someone once asked God the question "Why is this world the way it is?" God quickly answered "Everyone is free to think however they like". Someone asked God the question "When will the day of judegement be?" God quickly answered "Every day". Someone asked God the question "Why do some people live heavenly lives and other people live hellish lives?" God quickly answered "Because they want to". Someone asked God the question "What is it going to be like in heaven?" God quickly answered "A few believers sincerely thanking God that they are not in hell" Someone asked God the question "What is it going to be like in hell?" God quickly answered "The people who never believed in God realizing how foolish they are". Someone asked God the question "What is the best way to live here on earth?" God quickly answered "As though everyone is your enemy, but...if someone does not harm you as though they are your best friend". Someone asked God the question "If You had your way, how would everything be here on earth?" God quickly answered "I AM the way!" Someone asked God the question "Have You any advice for us?". God quickly answered "Get back to where you should be as quickly as possible". Someone asked God the question "Is there anything else You would like us to know?" God quickly answered "Nothing is new. All is still the same as it ever was". Someone said "Thank you God". There never was an answer.
There is no such thing as a waste of time as long as you are doing your best.
Dissapointment is just another word for "renewed dedication".
Glory is in the "Hi" of a friend.
Success in measured not by how much money you make, but by how much your money makes of you.
Sexuality is a mysterious topic. So is evil, death, and violence. I wonder why?...
Love is an embarrassing topic. So is affection, caring, and being truthful. I wonder why?...

The secret formula to make sure that your dream WILL come true: DO NOT EVER STOP MAKING EFFORTS TO ATTAIN YOUR DREAM. DO NOT EVER BECOME OVERWHELMED, OVERCOME, OVERFRUSTRATED, AND OVERLOADED BY SADNESS AND PAIN. DO NOT EVER TURN INTO SOMEONE WHO IS NOT TOTALLY CONFIDENT AND CAPABLE OF DOING WHATEVER IT TAKES TO ATTAIN YOUR DREAM. In other words, DON'T GIVE UP!

There is a reason for that sorrow that you feel, there is a reason for the pain that you are going through, there is a reason for all that is happening to you ...It is "THE DEEPENING OF YOUR LOVE".
Nothing causes humility moreso than shame. Nothing causes learning moreso than humility.
Nothing causes desire moreso than catastrophe. Nothing causes improvement moreso than desire.
Nothing causes conviction moreso than pain. Nothing causes success moreso than conviction.
Nothing causes sorrow moreso than losing everything that you love. Nothing causes love moreso than sorrow.
Nothing causes change moreso than having no more choices left you. Nothing causes happiness moreso than change.
You lose it all only to find you have gained it all.
That is the deepening of your love!!

In all of life's challenges, worries, and pressures, it is very smart to remember the fact that as long as you are healthy, surviving, and happy, all the rest of this life is nothing worth getting overly affected by.
Though there are many things in life that seem amazingly beautiful, fun, exciting, and thrilling, etc...Who cares? You do not have to experience all those things that are so special and fantastic...Remember that it is just being content, at peace, and satisfied with yourself that really matters. Though everybody else may seem like they are having such an incredible life...and it may seem like you are missing out on something if you also are not having that sort of super special kind of life, do not get agitated or affected by any of the life of this world...Just remember to stay happy, content, peaceful, and healthy. It is not important...all of that life out there. Really. Just keep yourself calm, and enjoy...there is really not much need for anything else.
One half of life is work. The other is reaping the rewards of your work. It is either one or the other. Don't worry if it may seem that work is all that your life is right now. Eventually...the rewards of your work will manifest. Keep steady at the course...keep working...and it will all come back to you in time.
Human nature: no matter what you may be imagining or thinking, desire and work are the only things which will determine your fate or destiny in life. Every person must decide for himself or herself and work for that which makes or breaks their own destiny. That is human nature.

The most important aspect of doing business is making friends because making friends is the most important aspect of everything.
"God made Truth with many doors to welcome every believer who knocks on them." - Kahlil Gibran
January 22, 2006
What is business? It is an organized and legal way to sell and attain products and services. What is business not? It is not: as important as it seems to be. It is not: so huge and bloody
all- important, that life revolves around it. It is not: the best possible thing going. It is not: as influential as all of the other aspects of life. It is not: success. It is not: paradise. It is not: everything that human beings ought to be so serious about.
Here is my sincere and honest comment about business: it has grown and developed in size and influence to such an extent in our life and society these days so that now everyone seems to almost live and exist for business. I think it is absolutely insane. I hope that human beings can realize and understand business is just all about making money, and making money is just a pile of crap. That is my honest statement.
What is decency? It is an aspect of human life which tends to be a natural quality among young children, and should also, I think, be a natural quality among grown human beings...however because of the influence and power that is created in our society by business...seems to very often be replaced by insanity. (Insanity: noun: the tendency to be overly caring and serious about things which are not important to simply living your life very happy and healthy.)
Decent people understand decency. Business people
understand business. Decent people do not understand business. Business people do not understand decency. At least, this has been my experience. There is a fine line between someone who is a decent human being, and someone who is a business human being. I think it is of utmost value and importance to know and to be able to distinguish between them. Give me a decent human being any day, even if the way he or she runs his/her business is not good God protect me from business people, even if the way they run their business is perfection. God speed the day when human decency is so powerful and awesomely widespread, that decency will be the only business that there is.
What is wrong with being dumb about things to do with business? I think it is a great human quality. It means you are not overly concerned and caring about getting rich. I think it is one of the best qualities there is: not caring about or wanting to be rich. I think it is one of the worst qualities there is: caring about and wanting to be rich.
I believe we are on the verge of a new age: the age of decency. (or truth) I believe the past age is almost finished. I believe that age was the age of business. (or money, or material, or illusion, or fantasy)
Idolatry. What Is Idolatry?: "A Person Or Thing Is Too Much Loved Or Honoured". Is this not exactly what is seen all over the place in this world these days? Grown human people...speaking and acting towards things like businesses, products, people, or things, like they were almost divine, special, or holy? This is what I refer to as being insane...or crazy. Nothing is so damn special and important and sacred, as to warrant people having an attitude towards them just like worship! I wish that we could all become much more realistic, and quit all this solemn and serious, worship of stupid things such as material possesions, success, and power. Human beings should, by rights, be able to see through all this crap that is making servants and fools out of them, but it is a very powerful and devious spell that is cast. If I am ever able to do anything about it...I certainly will!! That is me! I am a very crazy, sick, demented, outspoken, rebellious, and eccentic person. Ha! And I like it that way! :) - Ken Johnson
We discover who we are through people, because people are who we are. How we act towards people decides who we are...how people act towards us decides who people are. There is no-one in the world whom you are seperate from. You can not get away from people you do not like, you can not get together with people who you do like. All these people are you. You will see, meet, interact with, live with, and be together with people whom you really are. Keep treating people as if they are you...because they are you. I think the true purpose and meaning to life is to always treat people the best you can, and when you can't...always treat your self the best that you can. By doing so...you will create the best self possible. It is the best thing we can do.
January 17, 2006
Life is exactly the way we deserve it to be, at all times, at all places, in all ways. Sometimes we do not realize it is ourself who made it the way it is...but it is only our own self that made everything the way it is. At any time, we have the ability to react to life. How we react determines our future destiny. At any time, we have the opportunity to choose. How we choose determines who we are. At any time, we have the chance to decide. How we decide determines our outcome. Each human being is his or her own creation and creates his or her own further creations. Everything is dependent upon our own self. We can create anything we want as long as we desire it with enough intensity, and sincerity, and work at our desires with enough focus, and commitment. The only thing that is preventing anyone from attaining their desire is their own self. Be devoted, be willing to do anything it requires, be serious, be responsible, and be confident. Everything else is time, persistence, endurance, and efforts. There is nothing that you envision that can not be accomplished and attained. All is within a human being's capabilities to be attained. If it is too hard, if it too tiring, if it is too monumental and daunting an undertaking, it does not mean that it can not be done...it only means that we are not prepared to do what is required to do it. A human being can do anything, as long as he or she is determined and serious and makes the necessary efforts and does everything that is required to attain what he or she wants to do. Sometimes it is a long and difficult process. Sometimes it can be a lifelong process. But as long as we truly decide and choose and react to this life's set of circumstances with the correct attitude, nothing shall be impossible for us.

KEN ON WISDOM:
No one can serve two masters. Either
he will hate the one and love the
other, or he will be devoted to one
and despise the other. You cannot
serve God and money.
But those who desire to be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and
into many foolish and harmful lusts which drown men in destruction and
perdition. For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil, for which
some had strayed from the faith in their greediness, and pierced
themselves through with many sorrows.
But godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought
nothing into this world and can take nothing out of it. But if we have
food and clothing, we will be content with that.
KEN ON CATS:
I truly think that cats make houses - a home. As well, they bring a certain kind of love and sweetness and kindness and calmness and cuteness that I realize now is synonymous with being a youngster and free and blissful and happy and in a great state of mind everyday. When I think back to my childhood, I remember some of my very best times were simply watching, playing with, loving, and being entertained by my little kittens and cats. This is overlooked and taken for granted I think by many people, at least I never really noticed it until just very recently. The best part of being young and growing up is loving your cat(s)! I swear to god, with me and Tanya, I feel like I do not even need another person in the whole world. With her in my condo...it is just joy and love and calmness and sweeteness and companionship and hugging and laughing and playing...all the time. It is unreal, I actually feel I am going a bit crazy or something...with all the enjoyment and happiness I feel because of this little crazy baby girl/kitten. WOW. I think everybody should have a cat. Do you remember how damn sincere and loving and cute and lovable they are?!! I almost forgot...and now I thank god every day that I was smart enough to make the move and actually get a cat. It is the very best thing I have done since I started my herb business. It is (for me) unimagineable...how I Love Tanya. It is like me and her are a team, or related, me and her against the world and all alone together looking after each other and "vibing" out and being each other's best friend every day. What an amazing thing! I feel the same way I did when I was about 5 or 10, way back then, when each day all I wanted to do was go and play with my cat! I think that is what a lot of people really should have and need in this life, - a cat. If you want a cat just like mine...(unbelievable!!) check out this place:
KEN ON PEOPLE:
A pain in the butt most of the time...except the ones who have not forgotten what this life is for: enjoying...loving...being happy...and being healthy.
Most of them are crazy...literally! I do not mind saying that, because it is true.
KEN ON KEN:
Send me all your money...buy my products...make me rich...support my business...Yahoo!
KEN ON BUSINESS:
It is all a huge bunch of B.S. Really. However, thank god there are nice people out there who really do their best to genuinely serve people and do what is right. For them I am eternally grateful. But almost all of what goes on these days in the name of commerce...is just the rich getting richer and the poor getting taken advantage of. But...that's just the way it is I guess. (!!!) People have got to be unbelievably smart to see through all this B.S., and there is a HELL OF A LOT of it.
KEN ON THE ROOT OF THE MATTER!:
This is just a joke folks, a joke!... It is a miracle that this business ever started, and it is a miracle that it is still here. Please do not take any of it seriously, it is all just a big joke, and a miracle that it even exists.
By the way: if I could, I would send each and every one of you right now who have ever bought anything here a $1,000.00 check. That is how I feel about everyone who buys stuff here. Thank you! In nearly every single case...(without exception) the people who I have communicated with and who have spent their hard earned dollars here, are the best. Amazing. I feel like I have a million friends these days...better than any people that I ever met before I met you. I really wish I could make your life as blessed as you have made mine. Hopefully these herbs indeed are causing some profound benefits in your lives and health etc. Because you have all certainly done so much for me and you do deserve much returned to you for all of the unreal kind and non-complaining business you have done here. Amen!! Stand up now and be counted...YOU ARE THE BEST!

When all is said and done...what really matters?
1) NOT being a bad person
2) Doing the VERY best you can do
3) Keeping one's SELF in good condition
4) Being happy
5) Feeling good
6) Being excited and enjoying living
7) Loving people
8) Loving yourself
9) Being an HONEST soul
10) Being popular (without a doubt!!)
12) Not EVER wasting your time
When all is said and done...what does not really matter?
1) EVERYTHING (except 1 - 12 above)
The Golden Rule: Those Who Have The Gold...Rule
Personality is what other people feel because of the intent in your heart.
A heart never forgets where it came from.
A heart has the ability to know where it will be going.
A heart has the ability to lead itself to where it should be going.
In all things, listen to your heart. You shall never go wrong.
Belief is what causes human beings to do either great, or horrible things because of the belief in their mind.
A mind can be mislead.
A mind can sometimes have no choice.
A mind is controlled by it's own deductions and reasoning.
As much as humanly possible, strive to believe in the best possible thing. You shall never be wrong.
Vision is what is seen by other human beings because of the physical shape and health of your human body.
A body does not lie.
A body is only the servant, not the master.
A body is the soul made manifest.
Continually treat your body as though it is the highest glory in all of existence, for that indeed is what it is. You shall never experience any wrong.
The unknown is something that can be known...however, it can not be known until your soul has reached the point of being ready and able to know it.
A soul is you.
A soul sometimes is not free.
A soul can not be free until it has experienced everything necessary to exalt it once again to it's state of human nobility.
Have patience, have faith, be kind to yourself, and exalt your soul by being always responsible for what you do. You will never be thought of wrongly.
In the end, all that really matters is simply: WHAT YOU DECIDE.
Honesty is the sanity created within each soul that is the same as the nature of life itself. You can not know the nature of life until you become an honest person.
"There are no secrets to success: don't waste time looking for them.
Success is the result of perfection, hard work, learning from failure, loyalty to those for whom you work, and persistence."

What Do You Believe In?
If I had wanted to be rich, I would be rich
If I had wanted to have a fantastic life, I would have a fantastic life
If I had wanted something besides what I have now, I would have it
But I did not want to be rich, and I did not want a fantastic life, and I did not want anything except what I have now
What have a I got now?
A good consciensce,
Peace of mind,
Not much else.
If I had wanted something for myself of a material nature, I would have it
If I had wanted to be a worldy wise person and successful, I would be one
If I had wanted all of the things that people seem to normally want in this world, I would have them
But I did not want anything that is of a material nature, I did not want to be worldy wise and successful,
and I did not want any of the things that people seem to normally want in this world
All I wanted was to believe in my own self, always feel good and right, and keep myself feeling happy, enjoying life, and
That is why I am now like I am:
Content, happy, feeling free, and very glad that I did what I did.
I believe in my own self.
I believe that it does not matter what you do, as long as you do what you think is right
I believe that it does not matter who you know, as long as you know in your heart you are being true to yourself
I believe it is most important to do what you believe is right
Even though all other people call you wrong and foolish and this whole world does not ever believe you are correct
I believe the most important aspect of life is making sure that you never ever stop trying
Even if all of life continually beats you down, and stops you, and humiliates you, and causes you unimagineable suffering and pain
I believe it is only a person that is truly right that will in the end have victory and the ultimate reward
I believe that from this very moment onward, I shall attain everything I desire in this world
And I believe that is the ONLY thing that matters while we are here on this planet
What I believe...I will fight for and give anything for
I will even die and sacrifice everything I have
Because I know beyond any shadow of a doubt, that I am right
And that is all that matters to me.
What is belief?
It is the fabric of soul
It is all that god and the angels and your own self will judge when the time comes for that judgement
It is your character, your strength, your integrity, your purpose for living upon this earth
There is just as much bad as there is good,
In fact I believe there is equal amounts of both
But, only those who are genuinely good, will win over all those who are genuinely bad
Belief is the deepest, most profound, most important and most valuable thing there is.
What do you believe in?
The greatest mystery I have ever known: why is it allowed to happen, what happens in this world?
(injustice, suffering, pain, violence, war, murder,
disease, cruelty, evil,
and all the horrible things of living which I see day after day year after year moment after moment)
If there really is a god...how can he allow innocent children to suffer unimagineable pain and torture?
How can he allow someone like Hitler or any of the other assorted "Hitler's" living today,
to commit the atrocities they commit?
How can a god allow anything to occur on earth that is like it actually is...unimagineably horrible and insane and evil and bad?
I have contemplated this for the better part of my life,
and the harshness and the brutality and the frightening reality always leaves me speechless and awed.
How can someone who calls himself
"father" of mankind allow those kind of things on earth?
It does not matter how long I dwell on this or how much I try to figure it out, it still is impossible. I can not understand that.
The other mystery that really is hard for me to fathom is "why did I ever come here?".
Surely there must have been some other planet or reality where there is none of this nightmare taking place?
Why would anyone be sent here...when they could be somewhere else where these things did not occur.
Well, anyays, I believe that our desire is the divine "wand", or power of god through which each soul fashions and creates his or her own physical body
and through that same power of desire is then born into a situation upon earth where he or she will be able to attain what he or she desires.
I believe that is all there is to it.
Your desire creates everything upon earth. If I had had a desire that was only desiring to have pleasant fun life all the time...
well, I would have had THAT.
However... myself never wanted anything of the sort. What I wanted was exactly what I got.
I believe this is true for every single soul upon earth.
If there is a Nazi concentration camp for you...or if there is the pain of witnessing other people suffering,
or if there is poverty, pain, humilation, hell on earth, etc....I believe THAT is what you desired
...and because you did desire what you desired, you got exactly what you deserved.
This is what I believe.
Why do people desire what they desire?
Well, that is free will
The opportunity for each person to achieve whatever they believe is the right and very best thing
That is earthly life, the one reality of man which we all share upon this planet
As it was in the beginning, so it is again now
We can do whatever we choose to do
We can choose wisdom and what is right
Or we can choose foolishness and what is wrong
So shall it be, for such is the reality of this planet earth
I believe that it matters not at all how long it takes you
I believe it matters not at all what you have to go through
I believe the only thing that matters for any of us here is ATTAIN YOUR DESIRE
I believe I will start TODAY and do it!!
I believe I will indeed attain every desire of mine,
everyday, until the end of time
What do you believe in?
Earth is simply the place where we have to live
Free will is simply what we can choose to use, or we can choose not use
To create the best life for us on this planet, or the worst
Free will is simply our dedication to achieve our desire
It can be good and it can be bad
It is entirely up to our own ability
That is what everything is here on earth: our abilities
Are we utilizing our abilities to accomplish something good?
Or are we wasting each day utilizing our abilities doing something that we should not be doing?
What do we believe in which causes us to do that?
What do we believe in?
I believe that this earthly day will not be anymore wasted
I believe I will become the ultimate best person I can become
I believe right now...I shall accomplish everything needed to attain a really good human destiny on earth
I believe there is nothing anymore preventing myself from attaining it all
I believe if I was to do anything else...I would be an ignorant fool
That is really what I believe in
I also believe it is up to each one of us to deal with and survive
as best as we can even though we have a lot of challenges and responsibilities and needs each day
It is hard, oh yes, it is really difficult and wears us down and causes a lot of sorrow
But, that is what we all call living!!
It just has to be done...that's all
I believe there are so many utterly incredible human beings in this world
And I want to enjoy living each day with every one of them
I believe I am strong enough and I have the abilities required to be able to keep surviving and living forevermore
I believe life is the best experience there is
I believe it has ONLY begun!
I believe from this day onward...
Life will be a miracle
Allright, now I will go over and see my psychiatrist and break down and go nuts
Have a nice day
PRESSURE: It is unnatural. It is painful. It is unhealthy.
It causes a lot of stress. It raises blood pressure.
It causes worry, wrong thinking, confusion, tension, anxiety, fears, self doubt, sadness, depression,
and immobilizes what are otherwise rational, intelligent, responsible, and capable
abilities of living this life.
What is pressure?
It can come from all sorts of causes, such as financial obligations,
or money worries, or work responsibilities, or bills,
or debts, or lack of money (being broke), or envy, and jealousy, and coveting of money
and people who have money,
it can come from wanting money,
it can be caused by the thoughts and imaginings stimulated by money,
it is because of money.
How does one relieve the pressure and become relaxed,
calm, in control, rational, normal, and without pressures?
Easy: just remember that money ain't everything.
Just remember that even though you have money worries
and issues due to money problems,
it doesn't matter what the heck is happening...
just totally forget about it.
All this money stress is just a state of mind...
and your mind is
able to eradicate all of it if it just realizes
that money ain't everything!!
So...relax...just because you are broke
and you will be soon arrested for not paying your bills
...and you are an out and out total failure
and a real loser, and fool, and all that great stuff...
you are still a human being.
That is how you do it!
(next week we will show you how to win in your first triathlon,
how to achieve eternal enlightenment and bliss immediately within ten seconds,
and how to achieve every possible achievement on the earth,
without breaking a sweat,
but right now we must go climb Everest
so that we can be back by evening
and have the Rolls Royce polished by tomorrow morning)
Thanks to the miracles of modern technology,
they have now figured out how to photograph what "DOUBT" looks like
magnified under an electron microscope 10,000,000X:
(see electron microscope photograph below)
DOUBT is raging within
Making me wimp out and become weak
I have a lump in my throat
I am sweating
My eyes are blurry
I can barely speak
Oh my god...
There it is again!
Taking over my mind
Making my knees buckle
DOUBT is the worst nightmare that exists for me
Making me become serious and sad and
Scaring away the chuckle
How can I overcome this beast?
It is so fierce and powerful and REAL
That whenever I see doubt in my life
Negativtity, fear, and weakness
Is all I can ever feel
Well, as with everything in our world
There is always an answer
if only we try hard enough
and without ever giving up
And this is no exception
The fiery beast can be overcome and beaten
All it takes is courage and resolve
Courage to believe
that even though it does not appear possible
or likely or that you have a chance in hell
of achieving what you want to achieve
As long as you BELIEVE it IS POSSIBLE
Then it IS possible
Resolve to sacrifice anything
No matter what it is
And dedicating all of your self and life and strength
To being the supreme winner of all upon this earth
And being the courageous person who does not stop ever
Even though it truly appears impossible
that you will ever be able to attain your desire
With courage and resolve
And an unstoppable desire to attain what you really want
This demon will eventually
diminish it's evil spell upon you
And indeed, you shall walk victorious over ALL YOUR DOUBTS
From that time onward
DOUBT is the beast within
You have to overcome
Before your aspirations and hopes
and dreams will be had
There is really nothing else
that needs to be feared
or that is bad
Just get over every single one of those
terrifying, and sinister DOUBTS
that you have
And you will be able to
accomplish anything at all
From then on

CI resolve and CI strength and CI energy are called upon to

PARhaps all these people are right
A, I don't think so
I will keep proving that I am the one who is right until I DISE
HA-ha-ha, I laugh at all these people and everything all the time

Ken's Ten Commandments:
The First Commandment: Be Happy
The Second Commandment: Be Healthy
The Third Commandment: Listen To Your Heart
The Fourth Commandment: Treat Other People Just Like You Treat Yourself
The Fifth Commandment: Have Enough Intelligence To Know That There Is A God, And Believe In It
The Sixth Commandment: Stay Clear Of Everything That Does Not Make You Feel Happy
The Seventh Commandment: Keep Yourself In Totally Awesome Physical Shape
The Eighth Commandment: Follow What Your Heart Says To You
The Ninth Commandment: Do Not Ever Allow Yourself To Become A Negative Person
The Tenth Commandment: Enjoy Every Moment On Earth
The Eleventh Commandment: Adhere To The Truth
The Gospel According To Ken:
Religion is something one decides for one's own self. Karma is reality. Free will is what each person has with which to make their own earthly destiny good or not good. The mind can be programmed to do things that are right, and also the mind can be programmed to things that are not right. It is up to you. However...you do everything not right to your own peril. God created everything. God is worthy of your respect, faith, belief, and trust. Frailty and human nature will make you eventually dead...but in the meantime, use all your strength and ability to stay as young as you can. Youth is paradise...age is hell. Avoid everything to do with it! Whatever you can not change...do not accept. Instead, become defiant and beligerent and fanatical, and eventually change it. Treat other people as though they are yourself... because in all truth, THEY ARE yourself. Mind ye not the other inhabitants of this earth, only mind your own business and keep your nose clean. Do not seek for anything which is evil. That comprises approx. 80% of everything in this world there is to seek for. As for people...be aware that there are some people that would only like to see you destroyed, and be extremely careful that you do not allow them to do that. Realize that you must live on earth to be happy...not to obtain other people's approval. Realize people will use you and hurt you and destroy you so you must always be careful to look out for yourself. Be careful! Do not lust after wrongful things. Control yourself. Instead of being free with your affection, be careful with it. Seek something which is higher and more meaningful than being stupid. Be different. Be yourself. Be unique. Attain what you desire. Do not let anyone in this world change what you think, unless they can change what is sad to what is happy. Remember that the purpose in life is to be the very best person, not to be like everybody else.
Who is Ken? "Ken is someone who was born at a very early age. Then he later went on to become someone who was disinterested in everything that everybody else was interested in."
How Ken wants to be remembered: "I want to be remembered for never listening to anybody else. I told people they were crazy when I was about sixteen, and I have never stopped doing it until this day. I am the same now...I never listen to anybody else, and I think everybody is crazy."
What do you want to be when you grow up? "About twelve."
What do you believe in? "I believe that I am right, and that I always have been right, and that I always will be right. I believe that most, if not all people are totally crazy, and I will never listen to a single thing they say. I believe this lifetime has been a most wonderful learning experience for me - because it has taught me to see how very right I have always been. I believe in me. I believe in myself. I don't believe in anyone else. Also I believe in being very modest and open minded."
What are your goals? "Same as they always have been: be forever young, be forever happy, be enjoying life forever. Possibly one day get out of debt as well."
Thought Of The Day: "Of every moment that I have ever experienced before now, I love this moment the best."
Ken's Advice: "Stay Happy, Stay Healthy, Stay Honest. Don't Worry About Nothin Else."
Ken's God: " An All Knowing, Compassionate, Loving Being Who Likes Peace, Happiness, And Health...And Does Not Get Involved With Morons Of This World, Probably Is High On Something Like Fermented Flower Pollens, Lives On A Cloud Somewhere On The Outskirts Of Heaven With An Unlisted Phone Number, Is Very Wrathful Towards Spammers And Get Rich Quick Artists, Likes To Paint And Draw, And Listen To Quiet Acoustical Guitar, Thinks People Are Crazy, Believes In Himself, And All Things That Are Nice And Cool, Was Made Fun Of In School...So Now Unfortunately Is A Little Bit Shy."
Ken's Deepest Darkest Secret: "I am not perfect! Hard to believe it, but it is true!" (Please don't tell anybody...)
Ken's Most Profound Mystery: (Two-Fold): "1) How I Am Still Alive After All That I Have Been Through and 2) How I Can Actually Be Making Money From My Website!"
The nicest person I have ever had the pleasure of meeting: my kitten.

Tanja - "Love In A Cat's Body"
|An Angel For Me
Who is that scratching in her litter box?
Who is that who is filling the room with that un-godly smell?
Who is that eating her dry kitten food from a metal kitty dish?
Who is that walking over and wishing me well?
Who is that who licks herself constantly?
Her paws, her body, her face, and her rear?
Who is that who looks at me like I am the greatest human being there is?
Who purrs, and rubs my leg, and lays on her back and sticks her paws out whenever I come near?
Who is that with Royal Canin "kitten food breath"?
Who is that who gets amazed at and then chases her own tail?
Who is that who brings so much happiness and love and warmth and laughter into my life,
That she is now my all time favourite female?
Oh, that is Tanja, she is my 5 month old little white chinchilla persian she looks like a garden gnome
She came into my life a couple weeks ago and since then my house has turned again into a real happy home
Tanja is a true lady in every sense of the word
She is sensitive and proud and beautiful and caring and attentive and has the nicest voice I have ever heard
She is Garfield, Marilyn Monroe, Charlie Chaplin, and every celebrity without end
She is my sister, my daughter, my mother, and of course my very best friend
She is funny, and pretty, and serious and feminine
She is crazy, and spacy, and touching she is even Eminem
She loves me completely and constantly it is mindblowing and amazing and absolutely real
I love her more than anything else or anyone and it is the best thing I can think of to be able to feel
She is stalking around me now as I write, making the rounds, and she really is an earthly angel in all of an angel's glory
I am so fortunate and lucky to have her, because she has made my life a brand new story
She is gemini-ish and girl-ish and baby-like,
She is furry and cute, just a spoilt-rotten little tyke
Well, enough raving on about my kitten, it is time to now start my day
But if the truth is told, I would rather spend my day raving on an about Tanja than in any other way!
She is the greatest love I have ever seen or known
She loves me so purely and devotedly I am speechless to think she is actually my own
She needs me so much I have to wonder how this could be true
That a kitten so perfect like this can actually be here blessing me with her wonderful view.
|"Who do I respect most? ... Tanja, my cat."
|Don't just lay there, answer the phone!

Every single thing is spiritual. We do not know this, but it is true, so as such, it is very worthwhile knowing. All can be possible...even though it seems impossible, this is because the spiritual nature of life is beyond our understanding. The purpose of sorrow is to stretch the limits of understanding. Sorrow forces us to look deeper. Sorrow forces us to find solutions in places we may have neglected to look. Sorrow brings us to a place of spiritual understanding. Sorrow strips through deception blindness and ignorance. (like Mr. clean strips through a waxy buildup) Sorrow is a catalyst for the painfully private process called learning. Spritual truth is the reality of belief, hope, faith, and love. Spiritual knowledge is a knowledge of happiness. Spiritual laws are what we come to believe in after experiencing sorrow. Truth is found out the hard way, through experiencing sorrow. Sorrow is not pleasant, but it teaches us things which could not be found out in any other way. Experiencing sorrow is like experiencing death: you learn what is important and what is not important, and also you become personally acquainted with something that no-one else can teach you about. I personally detest sorrow, but I know that it is necessary to reveal what is necessary for us to learn about. Ken's definition of sorrow: your most cherished and wanted dream is cruelly taken away from you by some brainless fool of this world. Ken's definition of spirituality: what you learn by the experience of sorrow. Ken's definition of truth: everything else is a lie except truth, but truth is certainly not a lie.
Joy is the nature of life. Look around you, and you will find all in life to be joyful. The opposite of life is death. The very nature of death is destructiveness. When you see anything that is being destructive to joy and health and life...you are seeing death. Death is an unimagineably evil and despicably non-reasoning destruction of everything joyful, healthy, and living. (like my past bosses) I believe that there are only two forces at work in this world: good and evil. (which is life and death) I do not believe there are a whole myriad of forces out there nor that there is any real complicatedness to reality, there is just being alive, joyful, full of life, etc. and also all the manifestations of destructiveness, such as selfishness, evil, pain, disease, torment, etc. (death) All there is in our existence is life and death. Everything to do with life is joyful, and everything to do with death is destructive. If you can distinguish between these two opposing forces, you can easily create a simple and easy method for living life. The method is simply: do everything that causes joy and do not do anything that causes destructiveness.
Joy is found in every manifestation of life: in health, energy, beauty, kindness, supportiveness, in all of life's wondrous qualities. In nature (a.k.a. - life) there is every imagineable joyful thing. There are the animals, the plants, the earth, the people. Everything is very joyful and wondrous and beautiful. That is what life is like. What about all this insanity in the world like evil, violence, and all the other manifestations of selfishness and destruction? Well, actually ...that is death. To live your life more successfully, you just have to realize which is which, and make sure that you have enough sense and discrimination to only do the one and never do the other. It is very simple. (like joy is very simple)
Ken's theory of successfully and joyfully living life: 1) realize there are only two forces in this world, and that there are not many forces 2) figure out which forces are at work upon you now and the ways that they are affecting you 3) choose to eliminate all destructive forces from your life 4) choose to increase all joyful forces in your life 5) do not worry about all the crazy destructive insanity 6) Live only to increase and improve all of the joyous and beautiful things about your life and to eliminate and decrease all of the destructive and negative things about your life. 7) There! True joy and success is yours!

When things get the MOST discouraging and dissapointing and hopeless and bad, and you feel as if it is all over, and you will never be able to attain your desire...this is worth repeating: it is THEN that your strength amd hope and trust and faith needs to be most strong. It is THEN that you need to remember "this too shall pass", it is THEN that you have to be willing to even yet one more time! keep going on and never give up! It is those deepest, darkest, worst, most painful and most saddest experiences that are the exact most helpful and most conducive to your overall eventual success. YES, I know it always seems to be totally hopeless and impossible, I know...But, it is NOT. Just keep going...and somehow you shall succeed!!!
Aging is like being thrown on the scrap heap, other than that, it's not too bad.
Ken's solution to all the world problems: lots of blinking Christmas tree lights, everywhere, in every city, all year round, and if that doesn't work, hand out the noses and glasses.
Society today is defined by advertisements. If you have the right color in your logo and the right smile on your model's face then your ad will be more important and influential than any other facet of modern life.
Ken's definition of advertisements: treating normal human beings like brainless morons, and then once you have them convinced that they are brainless morons, using photographs, and logos, to tell them to do exactly what you want them to do. (BUY MY PRODUCT, OR MY IDEA) The absolute amazing genius-like quality of advertising is: it can convince EVERYONE (even me!) that you are a smart person if you believe what they are trying to sell you. The reality of the situation though is mind boggling: the ONLY thing they are trying to sell you is THEIR PRODUCT OR IDEA. Amazing! The power of media is like the power of god!! It is unbelievable that anyone would be so gullible and foolish. BUT!! that is THE whole art of advertisements: they convince you to believe them, and it is so slick it is scary. Whoever controls advertising, has an unbelievable ability to control everyone. (except me!...)
Who controls advertising? I really don't know who it is, or care who it is...but I do know that no-one will tell me what to do. "What is there that is stronger and more influential than advertising?" I can't think of anything. But all these ads exist in our society like they are now a part of society. You see advertising as soon as you walk out of your home and see it every step during the day wherever you go. Holy god!! I know...all of it appears to be very cool and humourous and sexy and romantic and brilliant, etc., but that entire form of modern day "advertising" is powering and controlling and brainwashing and making so much of an amazing influence upon every human being in our world...that I would dare to say: the power of advertisements is the thing that indeed is making total morons out of the majority of human beings living in our world. Well, anyways...what would this world be without advertsing? Hmmm. Good question!! Sane, perhaps?

If someone was able to give you something to overcome all of your challenges and pains...would you accept it? I would. I would snatch it up right away, and down it all. That is what everyone is looking for. But, of course there is always some horrible obstacle that makes it impossible for it to happen. What is that horrible obstacle? Well, it is a lack of strength. It is weakness of the flesh, weakness of the heart, weakness of the soul. That is the obstacle. The only way to be able to do anything about it, is to start cultivating passion, resolve, calmness, forbearance, patience, and most of all - COURAGE! By being courageous you will be able to finally get through to that place where you can at last succeed. Concentrate upon becoming a courageous human being and you indeed will be able to achieve everything you want to.
There is a common misconception in life to do with people thinking "this is the way things should be". We all imagine "this is the way it should be", but because it is not like that, we become very hurt, angry, upset, sad, and unwilling to accept the situation. Here is how to solve the situation: become an honest person! Accept that these so called "things" are EXACTLY as they are meant to be, and that it is simply you who is the reason that they do not appear to be as they should be. That is the way it is...it is your own self that does not admit it is the problem, and that it is because of your own self that it has happened, and that you need to become a more honest human being. If you can admit to yourself that you alone are the reason that it is as it is, and if you can accept that your own actions and attitudes have been worthy and very forgiveable, then you can change everything about yourself and change your life into something which is good, real, honest, and free of a judgemental attitude.
Everyone wants the same things. Sometimes we just forget that. We all want peace, health, love, harmony, happiness, success, a brotherhood on earth, and a family of man. Is that not what we all want? Well, I think that is the right thing to desire, but sometimes it seems kind of hard to
be sincere about it because of the reality of this world. But still, if all of us try our best to bring about a state of happiness and love on earth...it sure will be a fantastic place for all of us to live here. What is involved in changing our world? Is it possible, and is it even something that is worthwhile or feasible to do? Well, to make a change of any kind at all requires 1) sincerity 2) a lot of hard work 3) integrity 4) confidence and 5) a very strong desire. If it is in your mind to change the world, start with your own self, and if you can change that, it is for sure you will be able to change everything else also!!
In a perfect world there is no trouble, no pain, no suffering, no injustice, no evil. In a world like that all the people are perfectly free to live as they desire. It is when the people choose to desire something that is not good that is when all the difficulty occurs. If it is a perfect world... what do you desire to do? Envision something great. What is it? Because you can do anything that you want to do, as long as you are envisioning something that is GOOD! If you are not able to accomplish something that you desire, try thinking about something different to accomplish. Because as long as your intent is to accomplish something really good... there is no reason that you will not be able to accomplish it!!
Accomplishing something means doing something that is going to be noticed by people. Maybe it is going to be noticed by you, or maybe it is going to be noticed by someone else, but when you make efforts to accomplish something...it is going to be noticed. It is that which is noticed that signifies whether or not it is a good accomplishment. In other words, if you do something which you consider good, but other people do not approve of it, or you notice that there is not a good outcome or result from doing it, that is how you know that it is not a good accomplishment. But if you notice a good, positive outcome and result from doing it, then you can be sure that what you have accomplished is truly a good thing.
Ken's theory of success: we are all born wanting success, but there are a few things that we have to learn along the way: EVERYTHING. Once we are able to do that (learn everything...) then we are free to be able to attain success. Being successful means that you are someone who is liked by a lot of people and that you like yourself a lot as well. Success does not mean being rich, or famous, or owning a lot of beautiful things. Success means one thing: that there are a lot of people who like you and that you like yourself a lot also. That is it. You are truly successful if you have that.
Why then is there such an overwhelming admiration and adulation and desiring of things of this world which are "commonly" referred to as "being successful"? (wealth, fame, and material possessions) Because there are some very resourceful people who are incredibly talented at making you and I think that is what success actually is. They have a talent for making themselves appear to be perfect people. How do they do it? Well, to be quite honest, it is done with money. They manage to acquire a lot of money, and are able to use that money to make themselves seem to us like they are perfect people. Anyone who has a lot of money can do almost anything that they choose to do. That is the nature of money: it gives a power to be able to do things that other people can not do because they do not have any of it. So what am I trying to say? I am trying to say there are people who have a lot of money...and can do almost anything that they want to do because of it. Because they have their money and can do almost anything they want to do they are easily able to convince other people that money is what true success is. However, that is not what success is! Those of us (ordinary and non-successful) schmucks who believe in the normal usual things like goodness, ethics, morals, etc., usually spend a great deal of our lives just trying to figure out why there is such a lot of craziness in our world, and eventually (hopefully anyways...) see through it and discover that the whole thing is just a lot of B.S. called money. Well, you may ask yourself then "what is money?". Money is simply something that each soul needs to decide for his or her own self what it really is. From my experience, (for what it is worth) I have come to conclude that money is filthiness, debauchery, power, temptation, evil, unscrupulousness, and wickedness. Other than that...it is really fantastic stuff! Yes, super duper, stuff.
What do you see in your future? What do you feel your life will be like 10 years from now, 20 years from now, 30 years from now, etc.? If you think and feel that your life will be incredible...then it will indeed be incredible. If you are perhaps doubtful, or worried, or anxious about it, well, you can be absolutely certain that your life is definitely going to be filled with those kind of events and occurences also!! If you really want your life to be good and successful simply believe that it will be!! If you are plagued and haunted
and tortured with all kinds of worries and fears and depressing ideas about your future, start to develop some courage and confidence to really believe that you will have the best life imagineable! By the way, did you know that Santa Claus is a holly-jolly person just because he has read so many elf-help books?
Love is a word that truly means h-e-a-v-e-n...it is not a powerful force that hurts you and makes you feel gullty and ashamed. The word love is synonomous with happiness, joy, positivity, helpfulness, encouragement, support, having compassion for, caring for, uplifting, and friendship. Love is not at all like these things: fear, shame, guilt, pressures, hate, suspicion, mistrust, sensing things which are negative, depressing, or evil. The word love is something that is very good!! It is not a terrible, sickening, and demented emotion. If you experience love, you are experiencing the best thing there is. Keep trying to make it better and stronger and longer lasting. It is not something that is sinful - it is something that is really very beautiful!!

Obstacles, dissapointments, frustrations, setbacks, losses, upsets, grief, sadness, agony, hopelessness...these are a few of my favourite things. Betrayal, cruelty, injustice, violence, oppression, evil, and war, (raise a glass with me, sing this line again!) These are a few of my favourite things! (yeh, yeh, yeh!...)
I love a gloomy day, I love a gloomy day, I love the pain and anger, I love all the abuse that comes my may. I love the non-ending sorrow, I love the damage it inflicts upon me, I love the insanity of it all, I love the intensity. I love the trials and tribulations, I love wasting my time, I love the way it is negatively affecting my health, I love this ungodly crime. (back to the top, and once again with feeling now!...) I love a gloomy day, I love a gloomy day!...
What can I do to make this nightmare stop? What can I do to be heard? What will I do if I end up losing my sanity? SORROW seems to be the hardest word...
Imagine there's no humour, it isn't hard to do, no comedy and sarcasm, no laughter too. Imagine all the people, serious and stern. You-ooo-oo-oo may say I am crazy, well, yes I think you are probably right, but I hope one day you will join me, and the world will become less uptight.
Imagine there's no justice, no mercy or relief, imagine a world where all is based upon money, and nothing is based upon belief. You may say-ay-ay, I'm a nutcase, yes, I really do agree, but I really wish there were a few more nutcases out there, because I would then feel so much more free.
You may be a businessman, with a multi million dollar bank account, you may be movie star, with more money than you can count, you may be an athlete being paid in trailers of gold, you may be a rock and roll star making as much as if your soul had been sold, but...you are still gonna have to decide. You may own Microsoft, you may own Hollywood, you may have more hotels than Japan, you may feel exceeedingly good, but your'e still gonna have to decide, even the queen herself has to decide. You may be a pretty boy, you may be a starlet or a glamour queen, you may have a body with the health and energy of a perpetual sex machine, you may be the happiest person living in this whole wide world, you may be a president watching the flag being unfurled, but your'e still going to have to decide. Everybody has to decide!
I got worries whoa-oh-oh, I got troubles whoa-oh-oh, I got sorrows whoa-oh-oh, I got something I can laugh about, yeh-yeh, I got all these things I can laugh about! Ha-ha-ha!!
A-B-C-D, can I have a little bit for me?, F-G-H-I-J...I love cash!
1-2-3-4, how can I make a little more, 5-6-7-8-9...I love cash!
And in the end...the cash you make is equal to the friends you for-sake.
I'm a rock and roll superstar, I have it all, I have love and fame and money and sex, I have the world at my beckon call. I am a successful businessman, I do not have any problems at all, I make so much money hand over fist every day, and I'm never gonna fall. I am a famous celebrity, a star in my own right, I am living in heaven right here on earth, and that is not even half of what I am worth. I am a powerful person in our world, I have built up an army of devoted followers, I control everything from society to the church, and have unlimited dollars. I am a happy successful guy! There is nothing that bothers me or causes me harm, I wake up each day and the world is my oyster, if I want something I just reach out my arm. This world is not an insane asylum, filled with crazies and thieves, no it is actually a fantastic place, so perfect it is beyond belief. I am a rock and roll superstar, the one singing to you, making you feel allright.
Money, it's a hit, it ain't no bulllllll-shit. Money, it's a scream, it ain't no war-machine. Money, it's the best!, it's not a temptation test. Money, I need some more, don't try and tell me this whole world is not a candy store. Money, it's worth all the striving, it ain't just a whole lot of greedy people brainwashing everyone with all their jiving. Money! I love it man! I am going to keep working and working and working for it as long as I can, it ain't some type of evil turning me into a raving madman.
It's a wild wild world, hard to get by just upon a smile. Someone will think you are crazy, lock you up and throw the key away. It's a wild wild world, it ain't safe for no-one out there, you got to have a lot of money and material things, otherwise you ain't going nowhere. It's a wild wild world, it's not some kind of lunatic fringe, you got to be tough to make it in this world, if you're not you just make everyone cringe.
Bills and pressures, deadlines and responsibilities, goals and dreams, desires and pride. Success is having no-one you need to do things for, and a nice peaceful spot where you can just crawl in and hide.
If I stop making the payments, they're gonna come and thrash me bad, if I stop all this working, they're gonna take away all I had, if I don't keep slaving away, they gonna surely turn on me, oh god...is there no possible way to be free? "Shelter" Skelter!!!.....
I saw my old lover on the street last night, she seemed so shocked to see me, I just sighed, I guess I have changed a lot, probably from smoking all that pot, (I smoked a hell of a lot) but at least I'm still crazy after all these years.
I'm no fool, I'm still cool, I'm still crazy after all these years.
This is the dawning of the age of Contrariness, the age of Contrariness....When the present turns into the past, and memories turn into the time, then everything that was black becomes white, and everything that was cold becomes hot, well maybe not, but at least it is a rhyme.
R-E-L-A-X-E-D...Find out what it means to me. Relaxed, relaxed...give it to me, give it to me. I would rather have my arm ground off in an orbital sander, than be not relaxed. Sock it to me, babyyy!!
If I could turn back time, if I could find a way, I would never trust the idiots, instead I would say: "no way boneheads...go and ruin somebody else's life, I am going to enjoy this day".

PERSIST! Never give up!! Always keep trying!!! Excel, achieve, surmount, overcome, work, persist! Everything you dream of and want and love is only one step away. DO NOT FALTER! NEVER GIVE UP! DO NOT LOSE HOPE!....PERSIST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Everything is excuseable, everything is forgiveable, but giving up is not excuseable, or forgiveable. Get back in the game...go for it!
There is nothing you can do about time. There is nothing you can do about what has happened before now. There is nothing you can do about yourself before now. There is nothing you can do about anything, except control your thoughts and efforts and attitudes. If you can do that...you can think clearly, think logically, think intelligently, think calmly, be in control of yourself. If you can do that...you can do anything. Your ability to be in control of yourself...is the source of everything good.
What stops people from doing what they want to do? 1) physical limitations 2) emotional limitations 3) mental limitations 4) spiritual limitations 5) circumstances 6) reasoning that it can not be done 7) attitude problems 8) memories that prevent you from thinking in a positive and constructive way 9) fatigue, weakness, lethargy, illness, intrepidations 10) fear, dread, sensitivity, lack of confidence or hope, lack of support, lack of money, lack of trying 11) ingrained actions done out of habit which are purposeless, confused, directionless, or undecided 12) being a wimp, a loser, a whiner, a fraidy cat, a neurotic, a mental case 13) not feeling optimistic about anything 14) being a complete nervous wreck, and physical basket case 15) other than that...what the hell is stopping you for god's sake?!!
What is depression? It is a state of being a noble human being and living in a less than noble environment. How can depression be overcome? Not easily. It takes a herculean super human effort. It is amazingly difficult. It wears you down. It hurts you. It destroys you. If you are not an exceptionally strong tough soul it will eventually, indeed, do you in. Being depressed is like this: no-one is meant to endure that sort of abuse or pressure or stress or pain etc. It is not human, it is inhuman. It is torture. That's what depression is. God, what fun!...
What is hope? Everything. If you have hope...you have indeed, everything!
What is hell? Earth, if you do not have hope. What is heaven? It is what you are hoping for, and will have, as long as you never lose sight of, and quit having faith in what you hope for.
What is sanity? A continuing belief in the highest and most noble aspects about life, and the refusal to never allow anyone else to gain the upper hand.
What is insanity? A continuing belief in the lowest and most ignoble aspects about life, and the refusal to never allow anyone else to gain the upper hand.
What I want to have written on my tombstone: "Please do not disturb me! I have earned this permanent leave of absence"
Nothing matters as long as you are free of need. Therefore, be free of need.
Jesus died for my sins, my next door neighbours invented them.
God created the world in 7 days, but on the eighth day He created the real estate agents...
Why is life so damn tough? Because of the unwritten law that states: all people who deserve to have holes in their head, will be found in positions of influence and power.
I spent a very long time failing miserably at making money, then finally figured out the reason why: I could never believe or accept that any human being would actually be willing to sacrifice their consciensce for money, and then I found out that is actually what the whole thing is about.
LIfe is not as bad as it seems. It is actually about 4 times as bad as it seems.
A fool-proof way to be happy: stay away from all fools!

Thought of the day: e-mails are the next best thing to being there, sometimes better than being there.
The highest trait of a man or woman is honesty, followed by kindness, and then by love. All the rest is just selfishness and greed.
Selfishness is a disease of the soul: fear, need, and shame makes you forget about honesty, kindness, and love, and turns you into a human being without honesty, kindness, and love. (shame shame shame)
To make sure you do not become selfish (which is a hard thing to do) constantly keep yourself in control of common sense, and then it can be done.
When all is said and done, you have 24 hours in a day, and approx. 80 years in a lifetime, like everybody else. It is of utmost importance that you make the most of the time that you get. Great people make great efforts to achieve great accomplishments, normal people make normal efforts to achieve normal accomplishments, and lesser people are those who do just what their lower selves impel them to do. The type of person that you are is measured by the intensity, sincerity, and seriousness of your efforts you make each day to accomplish things. Effort is the stuff that champions are made of...and sometimes the very greatest of champions are those who simply make the greatest efforts to survive each day. Amount of effort = amount of accomplishment. It is relative. The effort needed for some people to simply live each day can be equal to or even greater than the effort put forth by Olympic champions. You just never know. The greatest of all human beings may be someone competing in an "Olympics of pain." There are champions among us that do not have any gold medals and recognition, but they are very worthy of it.
What is so damn special about wealth? Nothing, except that the person who has it does not have to suffer very much from financial difficulties. Wealth is entirely of a material nature, it comes from material. What is so special about material? Nothing at all. THERE SHOULD NOT BE SO MUCH IMPORTANCE PLACED UPON MATERIAL THINGS. I have never been able to understood it. It is crazy. People with wealth though can easily make themselves seem like fantastic people, because they have so much stinking power, but the only thing that makes anyone actually great is honesty, kindess, and love. This world would be such a better place if wealth was not considered to be something that is so bloody important. I look forward to the day when wealth and material stuff is recognized for what it is (temptation and insanity) with every fiber and molecule of my soul. Bill Gates, Warren Buffet, and other people with wealth are not in any way different from simple folks who make awesome efforts each day just to stay alive and not go crazy. I believe it is high time that all the honest, kind, and loving people are recognized as being the"rich and famous people" no matter how much or how little they own or possess of material things. The power of material possessions has held sway in this world for much too long. It is time the power of truth began holding sway in the world. Amen.
There are so many things in this world that are beautiful and great
That we have literally infinite choices of fate
Relaxing, travelling, adventuring, enjoying
Learning, teaching, accomplishing, employing
Every day is filled with opportunities on earth
For us do our best with what we have for all it is worth
Deep inside the heart of us all
Is a dream which will lead us on if we follow it's call
A dream is simply a prize that your heart believes in
Although there is no reason for you to believe that it will be possible for you to win
Without a dream to believe in this life is just a sham
Everything is fleeting and temporary and superficial, like just a scam
But with a dream within guiding you on towards a goal
There is nothing at all which can stop you because are always aware of your destiny's role
A dream can shower your heart with glory and with light
And can give you previews of paradise for which you will have to fight
It can make you seemingly radical and rebellious because you have a worthwhile cause
Greater than all this world's reasoning, beliefs, and laws
In fact it is this state of believing in something that you can not see
Which will cause you eventually to become free
What your heart believes in and what the world believes in are not at all related
So if you have a dream know that misunderstanding and conflicts for you are surely fated
However it is allright, and actually the way it is meant to be
Because it is only you who are going to eventually be free
And the others who did not believe in your dreams
Will be just victims of this world's senseless fantasy-like schemes
Dreams are the only part of living that is truly real
They are given to you by your inner self and they are experienced through what you feel
Do not be a fool and listen to other people's ridiculous lies
Only believe in what your heart tells you and you will always be wise
The power of dreaming is an unseen but powerful force that is experienced within your heart
It is so strong and deep and captivating to your soul that it can blow your mind apart
That is so that you do not ever forget how true dreams actually are
And no matter how confused or sad you become you will always see yourself as being the star
Dreams, they are everything that is eternal and real even though they are unseen
And everything this world calls reality, is just temporal and illusion even though it can be seen
All that matters is that while you are here on earth you are living so that you are satisfied
And that no matter what happens or what you do at least you know that you have tried
It does not matter that others have more than you or that you do not have anything
It only matters that you have a dream and that it will one day much happiness bring
The power of a dream is the power of truth
It keeps you in the condition of spiritual youth
Believe in your dream and strive for it every day
Do not give up or ever stop striving for it because it is the only way
The power of a dream
is life itself.

Health. How does it relate to daily life? What is it? I believe that being healthy is being satisfied and happy. Other than that, it is a state of not experiencing symptoms which prevent you from enjoying your life. Good health is a state of feeling hopeful, energetic, excited, and ready and eager to do anything which is most important to you. Some people think healthiness is being the world's best elite athlete or something like that. I don't. I think healthiness is just whatever yourself values in life to be healthy. If for you to be an elite world class athlete is the finest state of healthiness there is, then that for you, is what will be healthiness for you. However, if your idea of perfect health is just to not have to dread waking up and facing a life feeling sad and tired and hopeless, then that will be perfect health for you.
The main thing is simply that you feel that there are not any limitations put upon you which keep you from living your life each day the way you desire to be lving it. Health is valuable. Illness is unnatural and painful. I believe that more than any other reason, only will power and passion, and desire are the things which keep you healthy, and lack of desire, and will power and lack of passion are the reasons why people become unhealthy.
The main problem I see with trying to be healthy living in this world, is that this world is a place where most everybody seem to be out of their minds, and are constantly asserting attitudes like "life is a big three ring circus!". Or "this life is so much fun and so absolutely perfect, it is paradise!!" I do not in the least agree or think that life is like that, and it is this constant experience of seeing, hearing, and experiencing almost everyone in the world espousing that kind of attitude which makes it so difficult to be healthy. When it seems like this entire world is insane and beliieving that life is a paradise on earth, it is very hard to remain sane yourself, and function without problems and stresses and pressures, which are what actually create and cause the state of disharmony which causes all unatural human experiences.
I believe that it is by being happy and relaxed and satisfied with this world and with yourself that causes all things that are good and natural and HEALTHY!! And the first and most important thing that anyone must have before anything else is even possible to have is: your own sanity. My strongest and most passionate belief about being healthy is: "Remaining Sane In An Insane World Is All The Health That You Will Ever Need". Some people have said that "he who dies with the most toys wins". I say that "nothing matters except keeping yourself sane until you die".
A feeling of approval is what causes everything good to happen. Approval comes from within your own self. If it is not there, you will not have a sincere enough confidence to achieve everything you need to achieve. Feeling dissaproval causes you to halt, falter, stall, change your mind, recant, and not do the things which are best. Where do you get approval from? Well, that is hard. Because you must have the conviction that you are truly right! You can slowly develop approval by always doing what indeed is correct and always making sure that you are being right. Eventually...it will be there! When you have approval...there is absolutely nothing that you will not be able to do. Why do you not have approval? It is because you have confusion and doubt in your mind instead. Have confidence in yourself! Have faith in yourself! Have conviction that you are right!
(in the "Accent" advertisement, a chicken gets slapped real hard - FWWWACK!)
Why do people do things? Because they get rewarded for doing them. They do not do things if they do not feel they are being rewarded for them. It is the same for every person! The only difference between people is what they perceive as being their reward. I think it is a crime and a shame that money is what most people consider to be their reward these days. What is money? It is the worst temptation there is. It is just a despicable temptation. That is all money is. I am eternally grateful to all of the people I know who place the the dignity and the feelings of other human beings above a lousy buck. Thank god for Them!
Everyone has a purpose and a reason for being on earth. That is what gives us our belief in ourself! If your purpose is good...everything will be good. Thank god for everyone with a good purpose!
Question of the hour: what does it mean to be enlightened? Being enlightened simply means knowing how to enjoy every single second of your life. It just does not get any deeper.
Is there a meaning to existence? Yes, but it is up to you to decide what it is.
If you ever have a choice to make between being a millionaire and being a true human being, it is the choosing being a true human being that will be the best choice that you have ever made.
If you had all the money that you have ever dreamed of having, what would you have? A moment of change. Other than that...not too much. Everything we imagine to be perfect is just perfect until we receive it. It remains eternally though, that an honest man will always be able to be have everything he wants!
My entire religion: There is something coming up ahead of me that is going to be greater than anything that I have ever experienced in the past. Put myself in the other person's place and treat him or her accordingly. Everything is B.S. except truth. When it comes time to die...I will not be worried that I did something that I shouldn't have done. Thank you lord, all this world means nothing to me. You mean everything. Yes there is a heaven and I will do whatever I need to do to be in it. There are about 5 major religions and about 50 minor ones, which one should I believe? I will believe in the one I DECIDE. After I do...what do I have that will help me, if I need help? I have GOD. If I am someone who has done wrong...I would like to meet someone who has done right. With god as my witness, I believe only in what I decide to believe in. Nothing else.
Truth is like a joke: it makes you laugh. (it really is truth!)
War is like a good cause: it is beat your enemy. That is all fine and well, but I think the the truth is, everyone gets what they deserve in the end, eventually, if only we wait. I would rather enjoy myself laughing and joking than be a part of a good cause. I think the serious folks who would make me fight a war are my real enemy. I wil keep laughing until death comes knocking on my door. Then I might think of signing up...
I like this: just because everyone believes that I am wrong...it does not mean that I am wrong. In fact, all it means is that tomorrow has not quite arrived.

Just like money, sex never goes out of fashion.
(Captain's Log: August 20, 2005)
Moments of doubt are the judgement day in one's present life. Torment and hell are as real as happiness and paradise...the only sense in it all is to just gather your wits together and get enough strength up again so that you can start again towards your goal. The goal never gets any less real or any less achievable, and those moments of anguish are just throes of your rebirth. The meaning of life is to not give up...never quit...keep going on and make sure you achieve what you want to achieve. You may lose your mind, and go insane, and die trying. But never give up! Keep on working at it, and do not ever quit, because it is for certain that eventually you will live to see what you desire finally achieved. Loss of hope is known as "being tested". Just go through it...get it up again and win! (This has been a recording, beep-beep...)
There is nothing so bad that a human being can not overcome it. The word impossible means "not quite enough effort has been made". In every human being there lies a being ready willing and able to accomplish anything you desire. The secret lies in wanting to do it. You can do it. Just do it!
Obstacles are exactly what there is in this world that you must overcome. Sometimes they seem like they are too much. Sometimes they appear to be impossible. But the truth is, they are never too much, and they are not impossible. They are exactly what they appear to be and exactly what must be overcome. It takes work, effort, determination, steadfastness. That's reality. Find the patience, the strength, and the willpower to go on. To get what you desire!
There is always a reason why you can not do something that you want to do. That is human nature. But there is always a reason why you can do something that tyou want to as well. That is super human nature.
Someone is going to tell you it can not be done. Probably your neighbour or a close friend. But if you tell yourself it can be done...then it can and it will be done. Mind over matter is just a human being who constantly refuses to listen to what others who say it can not be done are saying. This is what is known as true human achievement.
"I struggled and fought for eternities to attain my dream. I did the very best I could do, all of the time. I almost died it was so difficult. Eventually I became a happy human being. However no matter how hard I try, I still to this day can not achieve what I would like to achieve. That is life. It is like that for all of us. Keep on living. Even if it takes another 3 life times you WILL attain your dream. Keep it up, because keeping on keeping on is everything there is in this world. Herbs help us to gain a beautiful inner strength, fortitude, peace, energy, desire, and happiness. As well as so many more beautiful things. Herbs are part of the process of achieving. A BIG part.
If the belief and conviction are intense and strong enough...there is no reason at all to feel anything but good about what you are and what you are doing. This is simple but it is true.

(A Message From Ken Johnson, The C.E.O. Of The Root Of The Matter!): It was bound to happen sometime folks. I have been taking so many herbs and becoming so happy and healthy and ecstatically euphoric from them, that I have finally lost control and gone mad with bliss! I think it is the korean red ginseng and fo-ti combinatiopn this week that did it. I knew when I started to levitate tonight with sheer vibrant joy and energy and "joie de vivre" of appreciation at this incredible life, that I should maybe not have made my ginseng/fo-ti teas quite so strong, but never being one for moderation I made it so strong that the spoon almost stood up, and I guess that is what caused me to finally flip out and go crazy. I apologize to all of the loyal and kind customers who have been so nice to me and all of our great conversations etc. but now I guess I have gone to that big budgie cage in the sky for people who overdo it on wonderful herbs. I started out with the intention of making this a column where I would give news and information to people about my herbs, etc. but now I find that I have decided to take advantage of my website by using it as a "psychiatrist's couch" and raving on endlessly and senselessly about anything and everything I happen to feel like! Wow...Ain't life great?!!! This is a lot cheaper than what my psychiatrist charges...Away we gooooooo! -"Jackie Gleason".)
I have always been a very religious person, and I have gotten a lot of guidance and comfort from the bible. In fact, when I was alone and without the love of a woman in our world to comfort me, the only thing that got me through my loneliness was "Palms, verses 1-9".
Everything that has hapened before now was just a fleeting bit of nonsense. Everything that is going to happen from now on is prime time, rocky racoon, and the cat's butt.
Ken's theory of relativity: everything in this world is relative, except relatives, which are just dead weight.
A sense of humour is the only quality about human beings I have ever been able to understand, or trust.
Getting what you want is all that matters...and if you are able to get it in a nice way then you are a splendid person as well
Everyone is a raving lunatic , just some people hide it better.
Desire is that which creates everything, even though we know it not. It creates all that is good and all that is bad. Desire is the nature of the planet earth. The life span of a human being entails following each desire and making the needed efforts towards attaining it. It can be a merciful thing or it can be a cruel thing, depending on whether or not the intent of the one who is desiring it is of a noble or base nature. People must realize that no matter what their own situation is, was, or will be, it is merely because they have desired one thing, and not desired the other. The physical body even, is a fleshly instrument that is created by our own desires. (though we know it not) All life on earth is fair and just and merciful. It is only our own desire that makes it appear unfair, unjust, or cruel. Whatever is imperfect and and which causes us sorrow and suffering is the result of our own wanting something which is imperfect. (though we know it not) Whatever is perfect and which which causes us joy and pleasure is the result of our own efforts to attain our desire also. People need to understand that the only thing that matters in this life and that the entire purpose for being here upon the earth is simply: attain what we desire. There is nothing else that really matters. (though we know it not) Time goes by...another day arrives tomorrow. Still the only thing that matters for anyone is attain what we desire. That is it.
If someone out of ignorance (a lack of knowledge) chooses to desire something that is wrong, he will create for his own self something that is wrong. If someone out of wisdom (an abundance of knowledge) chooses to desire something that is right, he will create something for his own self that is right. That is the only reality there is here on earth.
If someone is in a situation which he or she is not satisfied with, what can he or she do? Make a choice to follow the desire that he or she reasons is correct and make the necessary efforts to attain it. Even if someone is in a situation which is impossible to correct, that is still all he or she can do.
Peace be to every human being on earth! Have a Great day!
- His Holiness Ken Johnson
(yes...I can see that it is definitely back to just one sceletium capsule for me tomorrow...)
Whoever created this world was one smart dude!! I just don't understand the part about "thou shalt not laughl!!".
I am a very moralesic person. I am mor a les sick of everything.
The definition of the status quo: normalness as taught by people who don't laugh very much.
I don't mind being poor. It is the not being able to do whatever I want to that kind of bothers me.
Friends are like the popcorn vendours of the cinema of life.

Duty is in the eye of the beholder.
Money can change lives. But then again, integrity can change lives also.
There are approximately 13.1 billion reasons for not living perfectly. All of them are: not wanting to do it badly enough.
If you see negativity every day, then admit it to yourself, negativity is what you are.
If you see positivity every day, then admit it to yourself, positivity is what you are.
Enthusiasm and sincerity makes everything easy.
Catastrophes and sorrows test your faith.
Popularity and accceptedness does not make it correct.
Hate thy neighbour (...as thyself).

The root of all evil is an undeveloped heart.
Enjoyment is easy, life is hard.
Where did we come from? Same place that we are going to.
Man's desire is filled with gravity, it is because we live on earth.
Endurance is really a bitch, but nothing else feels better.
Sadness is a state where you are not loved...and all ill-health comes from that state. Happiness is a state where you are loved...and all good health comes from that state. Love is everything!
The suffering of human beings is a big mystery. That 's all it is.
This whole thing on earth here is really tragic. But the smart one knows that it is just a state of mind.
Program the soul with right choices. That's all it is. Then when you die, you will just make another choice.
The beauty of this world is a great reason to work for good. The ugliness of this world is a great reason to stop working for bad.
Heresay, rumours, imagination and memory. Who needs a devil?
Sex is so mysterious. I can't figure it out why I like it so much.
Death: whatever it is, it is certainly going to be the death of me.
What is that I hear? Could it be the past?
Life is competition. Where is the referee of life? Survival.
He who gives the most, receives most. He who wants the most, experiences most. He who tries the most, learns most. He who knows the most, has most.
Time is eternal. Human beings are temporal. Human beings are helpless.
It all comes down to there is one more day ahead of remorsefulness, and hopefulness, and helplessness for each one of us. HAVE A GOOD DAY.
Saw Palmetto extract is to man, what a lawn sprinkler is to children on a hot summer day.
Korean Red Ginseng is what it is like to be in heaven: laugh a lot because everything is so beautiful.
Rhodiola Rosea causes the tensions to subside. God...what a miraculous thing!!!
Kava is so strong, it causes you to relax and quit trying so hard to damage yourself. Eventually, when you take enough of it, you are like someone who can't do anything which damages yourself. I like it even more than ambitiousness and fame.
Sceletium is so good, it removes the most shameful of sins from your body. For the person that sincerely desires cleanliness of soul...sceletium is able to act as a tool to end every shameful tendency and act. Sometimes it just wipes you out. But what that does is wipe out all the horrible stuff. Eventually you see that it is just a great euphoric feeling that sceletium gives, and it keeps on giving it to you until your body is free of the low, and horrible, garbage
Tongkat Ali 100:1 extract is amazing, because it gets your testosterone flaming. That is what Tongkat Ali is: a fire in you that burns with a white hot intensity. We can take it for granted, but still feel very young and seethingly sexual and masculine every day. Thank god for Tongkat Ali. I am confident I will have this sizzling hot burning raging passion every day forever. Like someone 19, I only am concerned about pursuing excellence and attaining perfection. It is that good.
Maca is the genuine beneficience of nature manifest. I have never experienced so much positiveness and helpfulness and joy from so many people as I have indeed seen and witnessed from the people who are using it. Maca IS the latest and greatest miracle for earth. It is funny, everyone has that same appreciation of it...wow, I really do enjoy supplying this so much!
I am so tired...my body screams out for merciful rest. However...my heart loves what I do so damn much, I keep doing it night after night after night. This is The Root Of The Matter: it is the most enjoyable pleasure possible!!!
Dear God, what a nightmare my life has been. However now my life is like paradise every day. That is because of my herbs. Thanks. They are unreal products for people. Thank you for guiding me to never stop continuing doing this. Now finally...I feel satisfied! My decision to start this business was the best choice I have ever made.
We are a huge family of mortal, helpless human beings on earth. We have just began. No-one should ever not be able to be enjoying their life. What is it that causes misery and suffering for us? As far as I am concerned, it is simply decisions that are not absolutely right, and the resulting tension and tiredness which makes us act wrong. But that is all just so dumb really...sleep is simply a thing which is needed for not collapsing and going nuts. Peace is something amazingly good...it is more valuable than anything else I know. A new day tomorrow. A new miracle again. ZZZZZZZZZZZZZ.
