Regular readers of this irregular blog are in for a treat with this post. Arnold Mungioli’s blog, Live The Questions Now always inspires me and often moves me to tears. Recently, he wrote about the death of Dr. John Waddell, the beautiful SARK‘s (Susan Ariel Rainbow Kennedy) beloved partner. I asked his permission to share his moving and thought-provoking tribute here. This is just one example of the fine writing you’ll find on Arnold’s site.

JOHN helped sort things out.
He was the Beloved of our Beloved SARK
And she was So Generous in sharing him with all of us.
I once frenetically whined to him that I did not understand how the Law of Attraction worked.
I told him that as I was heading home to speak with him on the phone
rushing from a day of Work and taking care of MOM,
I was late because of missing several different trains, each by a hair’s breadth,
and my phone battery dying
when just as I stepped from the station, the skies broke into torrential rain…
Really? Could I be attracting all of this!?
He spoke calmly and Lovingly, “Yes!
You can change these things. Quite easily.
But why would you want to?
Your Life sounds like a movie — something most of us only dream of Living.
You have that.
Why would you want to change it?
I don’t think that you do.”
JOHN had a way of turning on a LightBulb for people in their Lives.
He handed out small Epiphanies
the way other generous souls might hand out candy to children.
Life does not just HAPPEN!
It is ALWAYS the Law of Attraction!
Just like we never float away from No Gravity — the Law of Gravity is always in Action.
People can live their whole Lives without ever thinking or knowing anything about the Law of Gravity, but they’re still affected by it.
It is the Same with the Law of Attraction.
JUST MAKE THE BEST of EVERYTHING!
JOHN taught me:
Think the BEST Always.
Focus on what you Want
Write a GREAT FUTURE for YourSelf.
SHUT OUT THE BAD THINGS — Ignore Them!
Then, Actively put your Head into JOYOUS THINGS:
Nature, JOY, and Where You Want to Be!
“I’m Conscious of How I Speak,” he would say,
“Whether or not I’m telling a story about myself I would like to perpetuate…
How I experience my Friends…
If we want to Live in a Happy World,
we must Focus on Aspects of our Friends that Feel Good to Us,
Rather than Focusing, for example, on a Politician who makes us Crazy!”
…perhaps even more True today than it was when he said it.
JOHN called ABRAHAM-HICKS, “the Best Explainer of the Law of Attraction.”
He said the Two Most Important things he learned from ABRAHAM were:
THERE IS NOTHING MORE IMPORTANT THAN FEELING GOOD.
LIKE ATTRACTS LIKE.
YOU CAN HAVE ONE JOYFUL EVENT AFTER ANOTHER!
EVERYTHING CAN BE JOYFUL!
JOHN taught me about Writing:
Write a Novel — a Teaching Novel.
Because if it’s not Entertaining — if they lose interest —
Then no one is going to read it.
He told me that when he wrote a book,
he would go to sleep asking the next Chapters to come to him
And wake up in the morning with the Chapters!
He would still need to work on them and flesh them out
But they did come.
He advised me to steer clear of Lack.
When we focus on a state of Lack, we manifest more of the Lack.
So we need to Shift
And Focus on the thing we want to Have
Instead of the Lack or the Wanting of it.
JOHN would remind me:
Nowadays, instead of ‘There’s a Fire! Let’s put it out, EveryBody!’
We have News Stories of a Fire five states away
And we can’t do anything about it!
So WE MUST put our FOCUS on CREATING A JOYFUL LIFE!
Sometimes the News is giving you information about World Events
Or Someone is giving you advice about ‘people like you,’
These are people grabbing your steering wheel.
TAKE CHARGE OF YOUR STEERING WHEEL!
Do Not Let it be taken from You or Hijacked!
Get Far Enough Away from people who are Criticizing or Difficult
So that You can FIND YOUR BALANCE!
Get the Balance and Stop Needing
Then you can Attract the Right Thing!
He also told me:
I give people permission to have their view of me and not get defensive.
If someone calls me a 20-year old alcoholic, it would be obvious to me that that’s not true; it’s just their perception.
But if they criticize something that I feel bad about in myself, I might forget that this is equally just their perception of me. And I might get defensive —
That is me defending myself against my own Inner Critics.
News of JOHN’s death came as a shock.
How is it we can be so affected, I wondered, by the death of someone we have not yet met?
It was only through Phone Conferences, his gentle teaching, his faith-filled words, and the Love of SARK bringing him into my Life that I was Blessed to know him.
What a Difference our Words make in one another’s Lives.
Our physical Life is not our only experience.
We have consciousness before we manifest here and after we leave.
It’s like going to a Movie. Why do people leave the theater?
The Projector broke
The Movie they want isn’t playing
The Movie’s over
…And so it is with Life.
See the Best in Everything!
Avoid Lots of Negativity,
Whether in the news or with people around.
Maybe try to bring Conversations to a Higher Level.
Your Life is Pretty Good Already!
Now, ask yourself, ‘How can I go to Another Level of FUN and JOY?’
We are a part of All that Is
And we are here to PLAY!
Like, Give a Kid a Crayon and they’re Gone — It’s like That!
I had Fun writing my Books.
LET THAT ENERGY FLOW…
