Self-Help E-Scams

Recently I received an e-mail amongst other junk mail about meditation. I visited the site and downloaded their sample. Next day I posted my comment and to my surprise my comment was blocked. Unfortunately my comment was omitted by their promoter. I guess because I wrote that apart from the beautiful music ever put on meditation or brainwave entrainment tracks, I felt nothing at all in those 10 minutes or even after 3 loops.

I accept the fact that brainwave entrainment works differently to each and every listener. Although its ironic and frustrating for me is that after more than 2 years of meditation (active and passive) with over 730 cumulative meditation hours, I have had only one short burst of astral projection, one remote- viewing (which I couldn’t do a darn thing about it) and one foggy past life regression. Therefore there must be something in it because something does work. Other than that my life is as miserable as it has been the last two years.

I have come to a point to give up the hundreds and thousands of LOA e-books, meditations, subliminals, Paraliminals, hypnosis, EFT, enlightenment, awakening, spiritual ascension, mental healing and all sorts of courses as just some elaborate internet scams. Be careful which ones you choose as there are several online marketers whom have been promoting armature products with fancy virtual packaging and fabricated testimonies. They incentivize their staff from more than 20 countries to fake positive comments and reviews of the product/s through forums, blogs and Facebook using various names - often by the same people.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not against our doubt the credibility the products, but I can’t stand aside and watch people who really need help are being suckered into their game. The game of “
Pimps and Hos” as portrait in the documentary the “Ghetto Physics”. I have done Silva courses, Centrepointe’s Holosync (Level 2), Quantum Mind Powers, Paul Scheele, Steve G Jones, Gerald O’ Donnel’s RVRI, Om Life, Brain Salon, Quantum Jumping and listened/read of other Gurus, Tom, Dick and Harry out there whom have miles of testimony about their product/services. Yet I’m still trapped in my limited, restricted, cocooned state of mind.

So folks, careful where you put your money, get out of the game - there are too many pimps out there.

Budget 2012: A Mayan Prophecy!?

During the pre-budget campaign, the rakyat were taken to speed of the coming announcement that it would be for us - the rakyat. Major papers were told to run teasers and we were almost subliminally made to believe that what’s coming is for us. In wondering how in the bloody hell our good government is going to ‘jack’ us to reelect them, we were anticipating major shift. Such us;

  • reduction in income tax,

  • abolish the abundance of Tol plazas,

  • drop fuel prices,

  • sack the Minister of Consumer Goods,

  • arrest diamond ring thieves,

  • arrest all the corrupted leaders

  • subsidies each home with RM 200.00 p/month for any green initiatives,

  • free medical insurance for retirees earning below RM5,000.00,

  • surrender 100% EPF fund at the age of 50.
Unfortunately - WTF, with an exception to the retirement age extension (which is history for most developed countries), the Malaysian Budget 2012 sounds more like Mayan prophecies!

On the flip side however, it only confirms our delightful dreams, the end of age for the ruling party. Aren’t we a bunch of positive Rakyat?

On Saturday (8th October ’11) we get to read garbage on major newspapers, page after page. That in the budget, a total of RM232.8 billion was allocated to implement all Government development plans, which include the projects and programs under various plans, claimed on focusing on the well-being of the rakyat. It was cold water on hot plate especially for the poor when only a one-off RM 500.00 was allocated - hardly one month groceries. This new budget seems to be the same old $h!t with a false twist “for the Rakyat”. Again allocation of billions is more of an opportunity for a select few to squander for another diamond ring, another luxury bungalow, exotic cars and fancy travelling.

In the meantime the government of vision 2020, with 50 plus years of NEP is still deliberating on high cost of living. For urban areas, while blaming the world economy the Government proposed “some” relieves like subsidies on some of the basic food items; yet concurrent raised the already filthy rich MP’s allowance. BN must have thought that Malaysians are a bunch of imbeciles to believe that this budget is Rakyat centric. If PKR, DAP or PAS was in power, they would have long ago subsidized the poor by giving RM 1,000.00 p/home, p/month and give them education and training to get them back on their feet - instead of robbing from them time and time again.

For this I shall now fully support Bersih 3.0 and PAS for HUDUT law. Because just like the Pagoh and Pekan assembly members who had the same red ‘Baju Melayu’, they and the rest of the officials will be walking without arms and hands. We the Rakyat wearing yellow; will then applaud them for their “uniformity”.

The Rakyat have also not forgotten the “Petrol Conspiracy”. That despite the drop in crude oil prices, the BN Government is still swindling in broad day light.

Therefore, are we to believe that the Budget 2012 is for the Rakyat? I’m amazed, stunned, dumbfounded how the Mayan’s could have predicted thousands of years ago that such would be the coming of age. Were 2012 will mark as the age of changes, the dawn of governments and leaders of broken promises, deception and deceit?
