Never Confront a Liar

24th June 2010 | 0 Comments

Never confront a liar, he’ll only lie more until he convinces you he is telling the truth. This statement was followed up in the February 1978 edition of As It Is with a bit about how a liar has to build up a whole series of lies to support the initial lie when examined more [...]

Definition of Time

22nd June 2010 | 3 Comments

According to Morningstaar in the December, 1977 edition of As It Is, Donato defined time as: When two people get together and make three. Hmmm. Don’t quite know what to say about this one. I would expect time to be defined as something to do with motion, movement, or space. “When two people get together [...]

We Take No Credit

21st June 2010 | 1 Comment

We take no credit, We take no blame. This is really one of the better teachings. It speaks of humility and detachment. However it also smacks of not taking responsibility for one’s actions. Humility is the recognition that you’re nothing special. Spiritual teachers tend to exemplify this quality. It comes from accepting your own humanity, [...]

Just Take the Ball and Run With It

20th June 2010 | 1 Comment

“Just take the ball and run with it. Everything is all right, just go with it.” I’m not sure that I agree with the feel-good 70′s approach to everything being alright. Sometimes, things are all wrong, but I do agree that doing what is right in front of you is the only thing that you [...]

Props to Sri

19th June 2010 | Closed

While I’m busy pointing out all of the things that Sri obviously missed in these “Predictions of Patricia” articles, there is one thing that she did apparently catch. The unmet need in the social zeitgeist to welcome home the Vietnam veterans was something that she noticed. So, I gotta give her 5 points for that. [...]

Lord God Elvis

18th June 2010 | 3 Comments

Sri’s Prediction: The worship of the Lord God Elvis will begin to subside by April. May the gods and the false idols rest in peace once and for all. By then, Elvis himself should be more at peace; how can he die when there are millions of people possessing him from this side?

Punk Rock and Riot in December

17th June 2010 | 1 Comment

Sri’s Prediction: The Sex Pistols are just the beginning of a whole new trend toward low vibrational musical groups. Four other groups will be quite popular until a violent riot in December. Music groups of a higher vibration are forming, and will come forth in late 1979 and 1980.

Advancements in Medicine and Science

Sri’s Prediction: There will be amazing changes and discoveries in medicine and science with new research and new things being done. It will be publicly announced between September and October (1977).

TV Sales Down, Kung Fu Quality Down

15th June 2010 | 2 Comments

Sri’s Prediction: On television violence will be up 23%. If you haven’t watched T.V. in the last three years, you’ve broken the programming. The sale of T.V. sets will decline both in ’78 and ’79. Three new programs will be aired in the autumn of this year. The public will love them, but the networks [...]

A Strange Assassination

14th June 2010 | 2 Comments

Sri’s Prediction: There will be an assassination of someone very prominent. He is dark and not necessarily a Westerner. It will make headlines because this person is in a very high position. It will be as mysterious and confused as it was with Kennedy.
