Don't Worry, Be Happy

To be able to alter your own mental state, you sort of got to find out where you're at.

Corky: Well Chris read the chapter this morning on Psychokinesis. That's what we're going to sorta talk about today and discuss the application of Psychokinesis. What did it say in there Chris? Just generally?

Chris: Generally, that you can alter the mental state of yourself and you can alter the mental state of others because they are both part of Psychokinesis.

Corky: Right, exactly. To be able to alter your own mental state, you sort of got to find out where you're at. And Terry brought a really good article by today. It was that there's order in chaos. Both of these things just sort of seem to fit in together. Because of the law of the paradox, that ... you know when you see black, automatically there's white there? Or if there's chaos, there's got to be order. And if there's order, there's got to be chaos, the opposite of it. Because it's like you can't have one thing without the other. Everything has two sides to it. It's the paradox. It's not just something with one side. It has to have two elements to it. It has male and female. And so if there's chaos, there's got to be order... in it. And if there's order, there's got to be chaos in the order... which there is. And so with this in mind, we've got to find out where we're at before we're going to alter anything. And so let's just say, we'll use Al for an example here. Al's been in chaos before haven't ya?

Al: Uh huh.

Corky: And your mind has been chaotic.

Al: Uh huh.

Corky: And you've been able to discover that there's some order or some peace there someplace, some smoothness, non-chaos.

Al: You mean like at times?

Corky: No, within the chaos you can find it, momentarily.

Al: Ok... that's what I said, at times, momentarily.

Corky: For a moment, then it goes away again. But it's there, right? Its presence is there because there couldn't be chaos without order. They require each other to exist. They have to be there. And so what you do is you find yourself, which is the systematic law of learning. You question the thing and you find yourself, and you move to an experience and you take activity in the Psychokinesis, and you apply the law and the principle, and you transform it into a new state and you experience and you're there. That's the same process that you go through. It's the systematic law of learning, the process of changing something from one state to another. So if we find ourselves, then we can realize where we are at, and we can take that vibration and we can change it to a different vibration, to a vibration of order out of the chaos. If we can find the chaos, and we can see ourselves in the chaos, automatically that brings on order. Because if you find one side, you can automatically find the other of it. And so you need to find that one pointedness within it and focus yourself on it. And so we come to the situation of "What is everybody looking for?" Um you guys, what do you want? Do you know? I was talking to some people in Mexico. It was really funny. One guy was telling me that he wanted to restrain his semen. And another person was telling me they wanted to have money. Another person was telling me they wanted this or that. And I said "My word, what do these people want? This is amazing!" He says "Well you gain this thing we're looking for by withholding your semen." I said, "Oh, that sounds great to me, but what are you looking for?" And what's the goal? What do you want? What's the ultimate state? ... Chris?

Chris: I think that's... Everybody's probably got a different idea, everybody's probably looking for something different, and has a different idea of what that ultimate state is.

Corky: I agree with you. They are, but there's some bottom lines to all the different things, ok? If there's the differentness, there's automatically going to be oneness. If there's the many, there's got to be the singular. And so if everybody has the many, everybody's got to have the singular. There's something that everybody wants that's similar. Everybody wants the same thing. Now you're on the quest, right? To become an MD and a psychiatrist.

Chris: Ya.

Corky: And what's that going to do when you get it?

Chris: Money, cars...

Corky: It can bring you money and cars and all those kinds of things.

Chris: It can.

Corky: It can.

Chris: I mean some financial security.

Corky: Ya there's no kidding about it. It can do all those things. What else can it do?

Chris: It can be incredible anxiety and pressure, all those other things.

Corky: And the good things that you're looking for.

Chris: The good things?

Corky: Things we call "good." Could it bring you peace of mind?

Chris: Ya...

Corky: Can the money alleviate a lot of problems and bring peace of mind and happiness, and well being? It can, can't it?

Chris: At a certain level, ya.

Corky: It does do that. I mean if you look at the people over there sitting in the movies in Ethiopia with the flies crawling all over them, starving, the little kids and stuff -- I mean I'd rather go out and be more comfortable sitting down at Marie Callenders with a big omelette in front of me in the United States. Now who here thinks that's peace of mind in Ethiopia? I mean I'm not up for going to Ethiopia and sitting on the ground and having flies crawl on me and waiting for the next airplane to come in and everybody jump on the bag of grain, if it happens to show up. And so money can bring some peace of mind wouldn't you say? You can go down, you can jump in your wheels and drive down to Marie Callenders and sit down and order an omelette. And they bring it to you. Right? So money does bring peace of mind. And so Chris is right in this, or headed in this direction of as we acquire wealth, it does bring about a form of peace of mind. And it also can lay an avenue or an environment for well being and happiness. It doesn't necessarily bring those things. You can have well being and peace of mind and happiness without money. But it certainly is easier. There's no question about it. Than being in Ethiopia, I'm sure you could have well being and happiness and peace of mind starving in Ethiopia. It's possible. But it seems like it would be easier with money to do it. Does anybody have a good argument against that? I'd like to hear it. Doesn't it seem easier Janet? I mean does it take money to buy the helicopter to go to the scene of the tragedy or accident? It does right?

Janet: Right.

Corky: Several millions of dollars, right? To go on one of those helicopters.

Janet: Two point four or whatever millions.

Corky: And that's going from point A to B, right? You get there fast. When you get there, are you comfortable about your traveling and your safety?

Janet: Right, because I know it's an excellent piece of equipment.

Corky: Very good flying piece of equipment. Not many of those pieces of equipment crashed lately, right?

Janet: No.

Corky: And how fast do you get there? Quick?

Janet: Very fast.

Corky: Like say from Salt Lake to American Fork is fifteen, twenty minutes?

Janet: About fifteen minutes.

Corky: Ya something like that. Ok, let's say you've got the same job and you have to do it on a bicycle.

Janet: It would be pretty tough.

Corky: You've got to take all the stuff in a cart behind the bicycle. How long is it going to take you to get down there? A day?

Janet: A day if I'm riding the bike.

Corky: Is the trauma victim going to die?

Janet: They're gonna die. Cause you only have an hour, it's called the "golden hour."

Corky: The golden hour to get to the scene, right? And so there's a difference in price between the bicycle and the helicopter, about three million dollars or four or five million dollars difference? What does one of those helicopters cost now?

Janet: About two million.

Corky: Two million.

Janet: For the big one.

Corky: For the big one with all the equipment in it? That's a deal. That's a good buy. You ought to get a couple. Anyway, so the two million dollars makes a difference in getting the job done. Does it make a difference in your peace of mind to be able to pull off the event the way it should be done?

Janet: Why, ‘cause I know we have the best mechanics, the best piece of equipment, the best pilots. I mean everything is the best. I don't worry when I get inside.

Corky: Right, and when you get there you have all the equipment and everything you need.

Janet: Everything is right there, the latest and best equipment.

Corky: Right, you know how to use it and everything seems to work out well, and it takes money to buy that, right?

Janet: Oh ya.

Corky: Now let's just say if you flew the patient back to your garage over where you live and threw him up on the table and asked Al to fix him... would you be concerned?

Janet: I'd be a little concerned.

Corky: Because Al doesn't have the facilities there, he has wrenches, right? Wrenches usually don't work well on bodies. They work well on engines but not on bodies, right? So you got a multi-million dollar facility there, an ER right? And all of the stuff cost money to put together, and energies and organization in order to put it together that cause this thing to happen. So the victim has a peace of mind too, don't they, or the patient?

Janet: Ya, I think if they are able to be aware of what's going on.

Corky: They see themselves in this very unbelievably modernistic setting. And it brings on peace of mind about the probablility of their chances being best there. And so with that peace of mind and that mental vibration, don't you think that it automatically helps them get better? Like if you were standing out in the field and someone was bleeding and they said "Hey man you've had it, you're dropping dead," have they got a chance?

Janet: No, they'll die.

Corky: They'll die, right?

Janet: I've seen it happen where people will say "this guy is going to die," and he'll almost die. And then there's been people... everybody communicates together and we are going to do a really good job...

Corky: And the miracles are pulled off, right? Unbelievable stuff. People hold it together when they shouldn't have. Their heart was laying on the ground and you stuffed it back in the chest and took them back to the hospital, hooked it back up and it worked, right?

Janet: A little bit like that.

Corky: Not quite but almost.

Janet: Some pretty amazing things, because you believe that you can do it.

Corky: And it works. And so a lot of it's mental besides all of the stuff that you have. But it takes money to do it. And so what I am getting at here is that there are certain things that we are looking for in life, certain basic things that every person is looking for. They're looking for this peace of mind and this well being and success, and there's avenues to it, and Chris is going to medical school so he can get some money to bring some of this to him. At the same time he is pursuing the peace of mind and happiness and success in life. Now these people that were in Mexico, I was trying to figure out what they wanted in their next incarnation or where ever they were headed. This one guy was really strong in restraining the semen, and I thought "What a goal in existence." I mean "I'm going to spend my whole existence to be able to restrain my semen?" I mean does that sound fun to you Bernie?

Bernie: Not at all.

Corky: Does that sound good to you Chris?

Chris: Restrain, meaning...

Corky: That means have sex and not have a climax.

Chris: Oh that means not let it come out. Oh. No, I don't like that idea.

Corky: Well, and what about these guys in India stand there in the water and hold one arm up in the air like this and put their finger in their left ear and their other leg like this and stand on one leg in the Ganges River, for a lifetime? That's called "austerities" that are practiced. What are they after? I mean they are supposed to get some benefit by going through the austerity.

Chris: The knowledge that they can tolerate that, that they can do it.

Corky: Ya, now another thing that I would say would be knowledge, a knowledge or understanding of existence and what it is might be a goal, or something that people are going towards. And by having that knowledge, what it seems to do is put you in control of your situation rather than being in the chaos of it. And so what we're trying to look at here is, what do you guys want? What are you looking for... in existence? If Psychokinesis is supposed to work, and it does, and we can use it, what are we going to psychokinetically transmute in our lives into what are we looking for? Al, what are you looking for? Aren't you looking for a little bit of wealth? I am.

Al: A couple bucks, ya.

Corky: Right. I mean, to make life easier?

Al: Sure.

Corky: I mean to pay the bills and stuff? Aren't you looking for peace of mind, and happiness, and the good things of existence, the fullness of existence? What would you say? Are you spending your existence to restrain your semen?

Bernie: No.

Corky: Does that sound sort of like something...

Bernie: Sounds like something I wouldn't want to do.

Corky: Now it might be a path, is saving your semen you know towards an awakening. That's what they taught it to be, that if you save that sexual energy it will rise up the kundalini and explode in your consciousness and bring you enlightenment. What's enlightenment? A knowledge? A consciousness of the workings of the cosmos?

Al: I think that's the definition.

Corky: And so what do you want when you got enlightenment? To be able to bring well being and peace of mind and the good things of existence to yourself, right? Isn't that what the end goal of enlightenment is? Wouldn't you think that's what it was Su? I mean is the end goal of enlightenment to lay on a bed of nails and torture yourself?

Su: Maybe for some people, I don't know. I don't know. I have no idea what exactly what enlightenment would be.

Corky: But for yourself, though, what would it be?

Su: I'm not sure what I'm seeking actually. I don't know. Sort of go down the road just well taking in whatever. I don't know. I don't know what the end is. I guess subconsciously I must because I'm doing certain things.

Corky: Right, but what about the now. What are you seeking for the now? What do you want now? Do you want to be miserable?

Su: To feel good about myself.

Corky: To feel good about yourself? To have self-esteem.

Su: Ya, I guess so. To feel like I've got control. A certain discipline about you know.

Corky: Right. In my mind that's good. I mean if you get out of bed and your thing starts leaking on the floor, and you've got incontinence, that's out of control, right? And you put a clean pair of pants on and they're all wet with incontinence? Everybody sort of wants to be in a form of control. Now let's just say that we have these different states we want to go to and to be to. How do we get there? If everything is mental and the philosophy is correct, we can mentally transmute our states to these states that we want. And they come about by a firmness or a resolve to make them happen. And Al you‘ve learned a lot of this over the last little while, haven't ya?

Al: More so than before?

Corky: You can let yourself be miserable, or you can let yourself be happy.

Al: More so than before.

Corky: Right. Can't you? You can choose to be in a state of confusion, exhausted, mad, upset, irritated, or you can be happy.

Al: I'm seeing more that I chose to stay in those states.

Corky: Right. I mean you get a stubborn on. "Well who is gonna tell me that I can't do this? I'll just stay mad." And who does it get? Does it bother Reagan?

Al: No.

Corky: It doesn't really bother most people except for the ones just generally around you, right? And just mostly you.

Al: Mostly me.

Corky: Right. So we need to discover where we're at, and before we can transmute anybody else, we've got to transmute ourselves. And to discover where we're at, we have to realize that there is the law of compensation in existence. And no matter what situation is coming down, you can make it bad or you can make it good. Like if Su were driving down the road and she got into a car accident, I've used this example before, and her car was wiped out, she could piss and moan about that. Or she could think, "Well I've got insurance and it will be replaced. I'll get a new car. This car was falling apart anyway." And she can look at the good side of it. Someone could get fired from their job, and they could say, "Well, I knew all along I was going to get fired. Because I wasn't happy here, and this gives me the chance to go out and find a place where I will be happy with my job, and get a job that I like rather than being miserable all the time within this one." You can take any situation that happens and look at it in any vibrational state that you would like. And you can make it good or you can make it bad. You're the creator of your own well being and your own happiness.

Su: I read a thing in Ann Landers today about this same thing. It was interesting. It was about this man who was complaining and moaning about the cross he had to bear in life and he said, he prayed to God, "God I don't like what I have to bear, please lighten my burden," or whatever, and the Lord said, "Ok, get rid of your cross, put it in this room, and look around in the room, and take whichever cross you would like to, to bear." And he looked around and all the crosses were huge or too cumbersome and he didn't like them. He saw one little one over in the room and he picked it up and he said, "This is the one." And he (the Lord) said, "That's the one you brought into the room." I mean we always think that our lot in life is so, you know, I mean it's just the way we look at things I think. I mean peace of mind is a state of mind. I think that's Psychokinesis where you learn to bring your mind to that state basically, isn't it?

Corky: Right, exactly. And what you do is you, is first of all, you decide to look upon things in a way in everything that happens in a way that's neutral.

Al: Non-involvement.

Corky: Non-involvement. And then if you can find that neutral, in a neutral position, you can put it in any condition you want it. But if you judge it as being bad, automatically, you're in the bad with it. But if you judge it as being neutral, and so that's the safe position to look at things. When something happens, you say, "Wow, that's interesting." And then you take it from there, and you transform it into a good thing.

Donna: Here's a little story out of a book over there I just read to Bernie. There was this priest or father in a convent and this young girl had been seeing him and so forth. And she got pregnant by this guy in another town. But she didn't want to put it on him so she told her parents she was pregnant by this priest. She had the baby and her parents were outraged. They took the child to the priest and said here's your child and berated him and what have you. And he just said, "Ah so." And he took care of the baby and made it a happy thing and had a nice relationship with the baby. And a year later, the gal was on her deathbed, and rather than die with that on her conscience, she told the parents the truth. So they went back to the father, apologized, took the baby back, and he says, "Ah so." I guess that's sort of like being in neutral. He didn't judge what happened; he just made it into a good thing.

Corky: Right. Now, it's really important in your lives if you are going to have these things, that within yourselves, you need to find this well being or this happiness, right now. And you need to hold to it in everything that happens with you, before you're ever going to let anybody else have it.

Su: I just recently told Josh, "Boy Josh," I said, "You really must develop a good sense of yourself because there are people out there who will tell you, you should be doing it this way, you should be doing it that way, you're not good enough, you should change to this or change to that." And I said, "You've got to know inside you exactly what you are and that you like yourself, because there's people who..."

Corky: No matter what you do, no matter what you say, if you aren't their religion, if you're not their color, it doesn't make any difference. What you're doing in existence, you've got to find yourself first of all, and you've got to be happy with it. You've got to look at it and allow it to please you. And then you can always improve on it. There's no question about anything. You can always improve on it. Su was talking about this in her video last night, we were watching. She felt really good about herself. She felt good about her life. She felt good about her music. And she gained this over the last, I'd say, two years this happened to you. You didn't feel good about yourself before. And you're really pulling out of a period of time when you did feel bad about yourself. And everybody needs to, if they're going to ever allow themselves to be happy, allow themselves to reach this ultimate goal of enlightenment or wealth, or whatever it happens to be or being a doctor or whatever, peace of mind or whatever you are headed towards, is right now begin with your own self esteem. Liking yourself inside and using the mental frame of mind to hold it there, and then even raise it higher, to a higher state of self esteem. Now to really be honest with you guys, you guys are lucky to be around here, because I'm a happy guy. It's true. And I have great self-esteem. And I always have had. Some people call it arrogance. And that's ok if they want to call it arrogance. I call it self-esteem because I'm such a good person. And I've always been blessed this way from the time I was born. It's from my previous incarnations. And so like I told Ron, "All you've got to do Ron is look at me and be happy like me and you'll be ok. I give you my happiness too," and I'll give it to you guys. You guys can have it too.

Su: That's one thing Marc notices about you. He said, "He's always happy." He said, "I'd give anything to be happy like that."

Corky: Well tell him to come here.

Su: I know. He is interested. I think he's afraid if he comes here it's because of me, and I've done nothing to really encourage it.

Corky: Anyway, so what you do is you find yourself and you say, "I'm just as good as anybody else," because you are. And then you get happy with it. And you make it happier. And you transmute it up the scale, to a point and you hold it there in happiness. And you gain the strength to be there. And it's fun. And then you have everything you want. That's sort of... you'll discover the goal. Now this guy that's holding his semen, you know, wasn't really happy. He was holding his semen so he could get happy some day.

Su: It does take a certain amount of discipline to do that.

Corky: No question. It's a form of discipline. It's a meditation. And he's doing very well. There's no question about it. What I'm saying here is...

Su: You don't have to go to extremes.

Corky: Instead of holding our semen next week you guys, what we're going to do here is we're going to find ourselves. And what we're going to do is be happy about it. Now Al has been one of the happiest people on planet earth these last few weeks, right?

Al: I feel pretty good, ya.

Corky: You feel pretty good?

Al: I mean I don't want to rate myself.

Corky: He's been happy like that before hasn't he Janet?

Janet: Ya.

Corky: And he can stay there if he wants. Or he can choose to get a mad on and be miserable. And there's no reason to do that.

Al: No, not that I can find right now.

Corky: Isn't life going pretty well for you when you're happy? I mean there's ups and downs, you run out of money and this and that and whatever.

Al: The ability to deal without the anxieties and all that is, the anxiety isn't there and it's easier, to deal with the situations is easier.

Corky: Now you can always ask for a greater flow of wealth. What I'm saying is let's make that happen by raising your level. Now the happier you get the richer you'll get because all those things are on the same scale. And you just have to allow it to go up and make it go higher and higher. Ok? That's how it works because people will be attracted to you when you're happy. And they're not when you're... who wants to hang around somebody who's got a mad on? Nobody does, do they? It was really interesting. Steve was so funny last night. Wasn't he funny? He tried to get a mad on. But it was difficult for him to get a mad on -- that one time about the paper boy thing. Because I didn't know whether that's what his title was when he was delivering the Wall Street Journal. I thought they may have a more fancy title than "paper boy." He said, "Just go ahead and say it. I was a paper boy." Everybody missed out on that.

Donna: But he said, he says the reason he was that way last night was because he was sitting by you and he couldn't be any other way sitting by you.

Corky: Happy. He was trying to... and he tried to get an argument on with his old girlfriend. She wouldn't buy into it either.

Su: He said she was pissed when she left.

Corky: Is that what he said? No, I think she was doing great.

Su: I do to.

Corky: Ya, she was doing great. Anyway, Steve can be a happy person too. All we have to do is let Steve be a happy person and laugh at him and he'll be happy, too. And that's what we want in our lives and everywhere we go. Here and everywhere. There's no reason to be miserable in existence. And that's the goal, that peace of mind and contentment and happiness. Money can't, money... we want that too, ya know. There's no question about that. We can fill the parking lot. I'm ready. But we want everything in life. But one of the most important things is happiness and contentment and peace of mind. And you can have those right now. And then all those other things come too at the same time. Ok? Is it a deal?

Terry: Deal.

Al: Where do I sign?

Corky: Is that a deal Su?

Su: Let's make a deal.

Corky: Is that a good deal? Ok. And that's our goal in our enlightenment. In our enlightenment as we learn more and more and more about the workings of Creation, it allows us to be in control of our own happiness and well being and peace of mind. And that's what Summum is all about. To make you guys happy guys, by getting in control of your own life. Why don't we stop for now and wait for the 11:30 class and be happy.
