NO OTHER MESSAGE FOR THE NEW YEAR IS AS POWERFUL AS…

December 31, 2009

the following 🙂 🙂  I felt that I had to get your attention to the fact that there is  one rule in nature that if you follow it, your life becomes instantly amazing! Tonight is New Years Eve and what’s a better evening to remind you of that rule. But, there is a catch, as always in human nature, the more all encompassing, all powerful, all meaningful, all amazing a natural law is, the more people will mold it to fit their belief and render it powerless to help. I will give you a perfect example: Jesus should always look like Jesus no matter what anyone says, even the Pope, no question about it,  but if Jesus had seen what we did with his image, he’d laugh his head off seeing his image in 5 human races, fifty different faces, and 500 places all claiming  to be his!

That is why I will challenge you a few times before I give you the rule, to see if you are willing not to mold the rule to fit your perception of it –  but to follow it, as is, and experience an amazing instant change in your life!.

Challenge One: Think! What could possibly be that natural law that could make an instant difference in your life? Send me a concrete answer. I will respond to the best answers in January on this blog, then proceed to the next challenge.

The ‘shoe’ and ‘leg’ bombers.

December 29, 2009

On November 6, 2009 I posted how prejudice ‘racial profiling’ is. I told those of you who seek a better understanding of right or wrong that I will show you the best way to prevent suicide bombing air disasters. Now, with the shoe and leg bombers being on the air at CNN, time for you to listen and tell your congressional representatives to act.

Psychology has what is called criminal behavior profiling (CBP). Part of that method of detecting potential felonious behavior is profiling of suicide bombers personality, and specifically suicide airplane bombers (SAB). The shoe bomber, now the leg bomber, and soon a genital bomber are just a variation on the same theme of narcissistic anger toward the self, exploited by Islamic extremists. The self anger does not originate in religion or culture . It originates at home or school with boredom; individuals fail to live up to higher expectation of themselves. These individuals are literally bored to death about living and making a difference. The shoe, leg, genital or boob bombers will multiply until society decides to educate parents to parent and force kids to take human rights classes in school. But, since that wonderful change would not happen, it behooves on the flying public to follow my blogs and ask questions. You may have to become your own detective of sorts in airports..

The current administration may have 50 billion $$$ to spend on homeland security but hardly a 100 IQ points to spend on understanding criminal behavior profiling. Politicians hate psychologists because we make them feel stupid!

CEO Janet Napolitano’s 50 billion $$$ fiasco..

December 28, 2009

If you follow my blog you already know that I got a gift from billionaire Warren Buffett – the insight that a CEO is worth his weight in gold. Obama, unfortunately, did not adopt that insight from Warren Buffett although Warren is Obama’s adviser!  Barack appointed an inexperienced politician, Janet Napolitano as the CEO of Homeland Security,  a 50 billion dollars operation to protect the American people. It took a Dutch kid on a flight from Amsterdam to Detroit to disarm the suicide bomber. Napolitano said, “The system worked.” She insulted the intelligence of the American people. The president, vacationing in Hawaii, praised her. She played the political game correctly – keeping the American people feeling safe at all costs.

We can keep the American people really safe, with half that budget. Adopt for Homeland Security a program developed by psychologists called Criminal Behavior Profiling (CBP). It works! 🙂

Children visiting on Christmas.

December 25, 2009

Today is Christmas day. Some of you, the lucky ones, can’t wait to read my postings on WordPress. You know that I am a totally different kind of psychologist from the ‘garden variety.” I tell life like it is! I have 2 well off elderly friends, one never married and the other one had her 2 happily married daughters with their husbands and 5 gorgeous grandchildren fly in to Victoria for Christmas. The friend who never married was certainly not a ‘drag on’ the family celebration. She was shown affection by everyone, but you could see the sadness in her eyes, as if she was saying to herself, “Sure, I had a care free life, but now I am lonely. I have no wonderful children visiting on Christmas. I wonder what my grand kids would have looked like?”

She turned to me wiping tear in her eyes, and said, “I feel like my grandchildren were born to someone else.” 😦

I said nothing, but a thought entered my mind.  I’ll post this message to my young readers, “Plan ahead if you think that you might end feeling like my elderly friend. She is so sweet.”

Merry Christmas and a happy new year; celebrate your wisdom!

December 25, 2009

Here is what would have happen if you weren’t smart:

The Imperial Japanese attacked you on December 7, 1941 and killed 2800 Americans at Pearl Harbor. You decided not to conquer Japan, not to drop 2 atomic bombs on them, and not to send a tough general to pacify them. You wanted only peace. The imperial Japanese grew stronger, developed an atom bomb and bombed New York in 2001. Your children died!

Celebrate your wisdom and foresight!

The Islamists attacked you on September 11, 2001 and killed 3000 Americans in New York. You decided not to fight back. You wanted only peace. The insurgents grew stronger, acquired an atomic bomb with oil money and bombed New York in 2011. Your children died!

Celebrate your wisdom and insight again!

Nazi Germany conquered Europe and half the Soviet Union in 1942. Hitler called the president you elected, Roosevelt, to negotiate peace. Roos said,”Hell no,” and bombed Berlin to smithereens, conquered Germany and forced democracy on them. They are now your friends. Celebrate your wisdom. Your children marry Germans and Japanese today. You love to travel in old age, and the grand kids are so cute.

Tell your grandchildren, “The Right Might Makes Right. The Wrong Peace Kills. Celebrate your wisdom. 🙂

Is skepticism a mental disease?

December 23, 2009

The Merriam Webster Dictionary defines Skepticism as “A doctrine that certainty of knowledge cannot be obtained.” Dear Merriam Webster, were you skeptical about it when you wrote these lines? Doesn’t skepticism delutes the motivation for inquiry into what is? At least, you should have mentioned that Socrates vehemently opposed this Aristotelian certainty that uncertainty is great to have.

I challenge you deep thinkers among visitors to my thinking blog. Decipher the certainty of the two far out nonfiction conclusions hidden in my short fictional story and leave me a comment of your discovery. If correct, you will reduce my skepticism about the progress we humans will have in the 21st Century:

A beautiful German woman from Berlin, a renowned scientist named Dr. Zeitgeist, and Bhagavad Gita, the famous Indian scientist from Mumbai, attended a lecture by Dr. Elior Kinarthy at the 1st Annual Futura Science Faire in Palo Alto, California, “What can we scientists deduct with certainty about the origin and end of phenomena?”

“Nothing,” said Dr. Zeitgeist to Dr. Bhagavad Gita as they were strolling out of the lecture hall on the way to the next lecture – Science and Skepticism.

“The truth is, Dr. Zeitgeist, that the Cro Magnon did not entirely evolved from Earth’s Homo Erectus. We are the only species on Earth that don’t have a 24 hours Circadian biological activity.”

“Well, our 25 hours day-night cycle is unusual, but I am still a skeptic about Dr. Kinarthy’s suggestion for science to explore a possible male alien biological intervention,” she said.

“What about his assertion that of our 46 chromosomes, the male chromosome of the 7th pair is genetically totally different from the other 45 chromosomes?”

“Well, you have a point there, but I am still a skeptic about spending money for further analysis of that anomally. We have wars and poverty issues on earth that need our attention.”

“What about the strong resemblance of our female mitochondria to the mitochondria of the Nean female?”

“Dr. Bhagavad Gita, please, the only thing that Dr. Kinarthy was correct about in his lecture was that Skepticism is a personality trait that cannot be altered.”

“When Galileo proved that the earth was not the center of the Universe and the Pope tried to kill him, wasn’t the Pope denying reality?”

“No, he had a healthy skepticism.”

“Have a good Century, Dr. Zeitgeist.”

“Have a good Future, Dr. Bhagavad Gita.” 😛

WORDPRESS IS THE BEST.

December 22, 2009

No, this is not a commercial. This is my spontaneous expression of confidence in WP.  As one of the best psychologists on planet Earth, naturally I seek out one of the best mediums of responding to your FAQs. Sure, I have a fine blog on blogspot for parapsychological FAQs, a spot on Facebook for potpourri explorations, an occasional chat on Twitter, and a memory of Myspace, but WordPress is in a league by itself: The best structured, easiest blog to use, the least restrictive, and loaded with creative feedback.

My psychological blog on Worpress will answer your questions how to improve your relationship with money or wealth, and a separate blog, The Peaceful Revolution, will respond to your FAQ about all other relationships, including health, happiness, politics, the environment, and even God, and I don’t mean the one people created in their cultural image. All my answers are generic, as is, no spin, no bull…, no politically correct crap, no ends or butts, just the Bhagavad Gita way!

I was a psychological consultant to the National Enquire magazine for 10 years. I like their style. Here is what’s coming soon on my Dr. Elior’s WordPress blog: Ten measurements of compatibility between a man and a woman. Take that simple test before you get married – it may be too late after. At any rate, whatever you do, keep your eyes upon the donut and not upon the hole – and let the good times  roll. 🙂

What’s an EPA?

December 16, 2009

No, no, not the Environmental Protection Agency. I am talking about Effective Plan of Action, something that covers everything. Let’s simulate the White House meeting about sending more troops to Afghanistan.

“Mr President, I need 60,000 more troops to get the job done.”

“I can’t give you 60 without the American people getting pissed off.”

“Why would they?”

“Because your plan of action does not guarantee success.”

“We are not talking about victory, sir, only containment.”

“I’ll give you 30, OK?”

“You get what you pay for.”

This ticket to disaster in Afghanistan can be averted by an EPA. You are the doctor in the White House. The first rule is: You do not treat a systemic problem with surgery, stupid!

Reader, if you understand the above, vote him out. If you don’t, ask me on Facebook or Twitter what I meant. Bingo!

Dr. Eli’s simple and amazing advice.

December 16, 2009

Last night I was watching well-fed congressmen and senators on CNN expressing lots of compassion for Americans who lost homes,  jobs and can’t pay the bills. They talked about the suffering of innocent kids, single moms, and the poor. Darwin was right. We live in a ‘survival of the fittest’ realm. These politicians will get reelected in the midst of an economic meltdown. I asked myself a big WHY? Then I  had the greatest revelation in my professional career as a psychologist, something simple that we all knew but didn’t pay attention to during election time.

We the people lost our distinction between lamentation and action.

We feel close to people who express that they care. We trust people who hug us and kiss our babies. We vote for people who show a force of personality and passion for the downtrodden. We follow those who make sound promises. We marry those who say ‘I love you.’ We hire those who know how to talk. Actually, we have lost the fine distinction between word and action. A journey may start with a single step, as they say, but we think it starts with a thousand words. We have been duped by ourselves,

Dr. Eli’s simple and amazing advice to you is to quadruple the number of times per day that you say to someone, “OK, I heard yah, but what are you going to do about it?” Knowing that your people have lost the distinction between word and action, you won’t immediately succeed:

“I am going to take care of it, don’t worry.”

“OK, but what action would you take to remedy the situation?”

“I will think about it.”

“That is not action.”

“Hey, lay off.”

Let’s face it, it won’t be easy to get anyone to force congressmen and senators to tell us what they will do about any crisis, we have got to do it with Dr. Eli’s insight and VOTE ONLY FOR POLITICIANS WHO TELL US WHAT THEY WILL DO (A PLAN OF ACTION) TO SOLVE A PROBLEM.

Let’s face it again, it won’t be easy for anyone to come up with an effective plan of action (EPA) to solve a problem. Hey, reader, you want to really improve your country, read my next posting; what’s an EPA?

Bet you didn’t know that language can kill.

December 15, 2009

This is a true story: Three thinking  giants, an old teacher, his adult student, and his young student, got together twenty-four hundred years ago in Athens. The old teacher, Mr. S said, “Future communication between people on this planet depends on what we decide tonight.” His adult student, Mr. P asked, “Are we going to publish a dictionary, Master?” His young student, Mr. A said, “I don’t think so. P only wants us to establish the sources for future philologists where they can get information about the meaning of words.” S and P looked at the young student, “That was very good, Aris,” bursting out with appreciation of the young mind.

The young man’s confidence soared, not that he had come to the meeting with lack of it. Aris was an independent thinker at a period in Athen’s life when philologists were were not.

“My dear teachers, the meaning of words would always be based on how they are used by the people,” he said.

“It appears to me that you are proposing a new concept,” Plat said in visible discomfort.

“Yes, my teacher, I call it Community Standard of Language.

“What about the essence of words, my son?” Soc questioned.

“Words have no essence, Master, only local meaning.”

Socra and Plat gave Aris a disdainful look, “If what you are proposing is true, future dictionaries will be a source of discord and not a source of consensus in the world.”

“I’m sorry, gentlemen, words have no true meaning. Take, for example the word ‘love.’ Do you really believe that men and women could ever mean the same thing when they communicate love to each other?”

Socrates and Plato started crying. Socrates took a deep breath and said, “Then language will kill. Think of all the wars that misunderstanding will cause.”

“I’m sorry, gentlemen, but culture decides the meaning of words, not philologists.”

Socrates said, “You have a point, my son, I was condemned to death last week for teaching our youth that language has an inherent meaning, different from what is taught in Athens.”

The  above story has a profound meaning in my life. I presented a research paper on the above topic at the 69th Annual Meeting of the California Educational Research association, 1990. There was silence in the room. 25 PhDs shuffled their feet out of the room in silence, not a word, not a question, just looks, you know, the kind of looks people give you when they think you are a weird killjoy.

Readers, I want you to retrieve my reasearch paper, It is called “Critical Thinking Skills” by Dr. Elior Kinarthy. You will know why so many people in your life disagree with what you say!
