Bashar is one of many hoaxers in the field, that seems clear. Although he doesn´t really do harm except from inspiring false hope maybe.
But there will be always people who just jumped on the enlightenment train who will eat his stuff up without question. And that is a bit sad, but it
seems to be human nature.
you can view bashar as a hoaxer which is fine by me, however im pretty sure i understand where your frustration with him lies when you suggest he
inspires false hope.
what exactly is false hope? do you not realize that most people who excel at what they do or who are happy in their own lives utilize most of these
teachings without even realizing it? just listen to people who excel at their passion and listen to their own advice if bashar doesn't strike a
chord. this is from deion sanders' hall of fame acceptance speech. i'll paraphrase the most relavant parts:
"And in my dormitory room at Florida State, I created this image. This thing that you can imagine. You could love him or you could hate him, but he
I pre rehearsed the sayings because I knew I had the substance. I knew I had the goods, I knew I had the work ethic, but I needed to secure myself
enough that my mama would never have to work another day of her life.
See the problem is with some dreams, the dreams are only about you if your dream ain't bigger than you, there is a problem with your dream....
Now I got a promise, I got a responsibility, I've got an intelligence and an intellect. Now I'm managing things. The last thing that I have is
expectation. It separates us from some of you kids, from some of you adults, from some of you people that we expect to be great. I expect to be great.
I expect to do what hadn't been done. I expect to provoke change. I expect when I walk into a room and it's 72°, when I get there, it's going to
be 70. I expect to make change....
I expect certain things. People, start expecting what you desire. Start thinking outside the box. On my shoes right now, on these kids shirts behind
them, it says "You've got to believe." I have a problem that if you don't believe in yourself, how will somebody else believe in you?"
Dont you realize that is simply Bashar's teachings applied to an athlete who credits Jesus Christ for his talents which is perfectly fine for him,
but essentially he mastered Bashar's teachings without even knowing it.
Do what excites you. Hold onto that image. Transfer it to belief. Take inspired action on that belief and desire. Know for certain that it's a done
deal. Know that no matter what, it's coming to you. Confidence.
And it does.
I wish more people would quit being such hateful, angry, cynical, and misdirected. Once you start taking ownership for everything that exists directly
in your circumstances you'll realize that it can be simply a change in the way you think that will change how you see things that will change how you
interact that will change who you interact with that will change opportunities and so on and so forth. I've seen it happen too many times in my own
life to even count and although I still have days where I am down or angry or dont want to talk to people etc.. i credit Bashar or Anka whoever you
want to believe is sending this message with giving me more tools and understanding to deal with my own existence. I'd gladly pay Bashar the 85 bucks
and have fun listening that I'd pay a psychiatrist to sit for 5 minutes and say here's your xanax prescription. That's just me though and it works
for me. You can believe whatever, it's your life and in the end it's fine.
