It seems that some of you have brought your own story to my story. Which I find wonderful. I marvel at our capacity to build worlds where no worlds exist.
This is what I do – and it’s what you do too.
It’s what we all do to find order within chaos.
To make sense of it all.
Let me explain The Texas Cosmic Rays Experiment –
Dr. Bimal Bhatt asked for my birth details before I left Australia to go to India. I’d known him for some years through a mutual acquaintance. His was the only phone number I had with me when I landed in Mumbai.
When we arrived in Mumbai Dr. Bhatt kindly invited us to his house for dinner, and the next day I did an interview with him for the PGS film. The interview was strong. And after the interview he asked if I wanted him to read me my astrological charts, which he’d prepared.
I’d forgotten completely that I’d sent him my birth details, and I had no idea he was such an accomplished astrologer. I knew him to be a spiritual man, yes, but principally a very successful lawyer and businessman.
So the next day we went to his office and he read me my charts.
Dr. Bhatt was as surprised as me when he discovered what my charts predicted. Whilst he’d prepared the charts, he hadn’t actually gone through them and analysed them until that morning.
Why did I film the reading? Intuition, I guess. I had a gut feeling I should. That’s all I can say. I had no idea what was coming.
A while ago I put up the complete video recording of the reading – I dropped the password protection for 24 hrs so you could all see it in full. Those of you who saw it will know that Dr. Bhatt said that I shouldn’t necessarily do nothing. That I shouldn’t be passive.
And if you look at The Prediction video, he said that after the Cosmic Rays had started to infiltrate my body, and make their way to my brain, good ideas would come. And I would make bold decisions. And people would come to me with big deals.
In fact after I told him I was going to Dallas, he gave me a list of instructions, of things to do. He said that I should actively seek business opportunities.
For instance he said that I should go to the biggest church in Dallas, it didn’t matter which church but it should be the biggest in the centre of the city, (to show God that I was pious, he said) and I should talk to the Archbishop or whoever was in charge, and get from him a list of the wealthy people in his congregation, and ask him for an introduction.
Over the following weeks before I left for Dallas, Bimal sent me all kinds of instructions on what to do once I got to Dallas.
Bimal’s commercial business partner is a man named Pradeep. I’ve known Pradeep as long as I’ve known Bimal. Together these men have made bold commercial decisions based on their charts. And they’ve done what Bimal told me to do – they’ve gone to foreign countries and opened themselves up to the whims of the Cosmos.
And it’s paid off handsomely for them, time and time again.
So when I decided I was going to Dallas, I contacted Pradeep and asked him how I should approach it. Pradeep is a wonderful man. A ball of unbounded energy and optimism. And an extremely clever businessman.
He said that before I leave Australia, I should line up as much as possible, so that I had people to meet and things to do as soon as I landed. He told me that’s what he’d done in the past, when he’d done similar trips with Bimal.
So that’s what I did.
The first thing I did was google “Dallas+astrology,” and up came several entries for Joni Patry. I checked out her website, and saw that she was a published author of several respected and well reviewed books on Vedic Astrology. She was also a major player within the Vedic Astrology community in the US, and so I figured she was knowledgeable and authoritative.
There are a lot of flakey astrologers out there. She was obviously not one of them. She was the real deal.
The reason I contacted her was because I wanted to interview her, as part of the film I was going to make on the “experiment” – possibly a separate film to the PGS film. Basically I needed someone to explain what Vedic astrology really is, and how it works.
We spoke on the phone and she told me that she wouldn’t be in Dallas when Jennifer and Rachit and I arrived on November 23rd. She’d been invited to Turkey to do seminars and predictive readings. She said she wouldn’t be back until two days before Thanksgiving, which would be our Day 3 in Dallas.
Before she left for Turkey she invited us to her family’s Thanksgiving lunch, which was very kind and generous of her. That is the only prior arrangement I made with Joni.
Let me explain Rachit.
In going to Dallas I knew we would be filming. And unlike the PGS film, I knew this would be a film about my journey, and I would be on camera a lot. I couldn’t physically film myself, so I needed a cameraman.
I considered bringing someone from Australia, and I spoke to my favourite (and highly experienced) doco Director of Photography, but I quickly realised it wouldn’t work. Whilst he was excited about the film and what I was intending to do, he didn’t want to stay in a cheap motel, he didn’t want to be “on” 24/7, and he’d cost too much. I didn’t want to spend much money on this.
I thought of hiring someone locally out of Dallas, but again the rates were prohibitive, and also for this to work I needed someone prepared to be on hand, on call, day and night.
And then I thought of Rachit. He was perfect because at his London Film School his major was cinematography. He’d been shooting his own short films for non-profit organisations in India, plus – and this was the biggest plus – he’d been with us all through India.
We had a “shorthand” working together, he knew the gear and what I was doing and how I was doing it, he was prepared to stay in a dog kennel if I was going to stay in a dog kennel, and he was prepared to work for my budget.
Not only that but Rachit is smart, sensitive, and has a very pure compassionate energy. Also, I was about to film an Indian story in the US, and I felt I needed to have an Indian perspective on it all. I value his input, just like I value Jennifer’s. I’m constantly turning to these two people for opinions and advice.
So we flew Rachit out to LA a day before we were due to fly to Dallas, and then we all arrived in Dallas on the 23rd.
Let me explain “no money.”
Again if you look at the extended video, Bimal didn’t say I should go to Dallas with no money. What he said was that I should carry no money. He said that my wife Jennifer should carry the money, and actually he said I could use one or two thousand dollars during my time in Dallas, But essentially he wanted me to feel like I had no money.
In asking my wife for money, he was wanting me to change my mode of thinking about money. And in staying in a cheap motel and eating cheap food, he was wanting me to think about what it would be like to have no money. So that I would be encouraged to change my circumstances. To think of ways of making money. To make me hungrier, not in a literal sense, but dynamically hungrier.
Despite all the instructions from Bimal and Pradeep, I’d left Australia with only two contacts in Dallas, and both weren’t even there when I arrived. Joni was in Turkey, and a Medical Intuitive whom I’d contacted, Dr. Rita Louise, lived about 200mls out of the city. She was prepared to drive in for a day though sometime during my stay so that I could interview her.
So when we landed at DFW airport, I had no-one to contact, no support whatsoever. Which was really what I wanted anyway. I wanted to to start with nothing. So I hopped in a cab and told the driver to take me to the cheapest motel he knew. It took nearly an hour and a half to find a motel cheap enough – the Shady Oaks Motel, for $28 a night.
When we checked in I was prepared to stay for 15 days, and yet my PGS told me not to pay by the week. Bimal had said that someone might come and take us out of the cheap motel, and we’d end up in five star luxury – so intuitively I paid day by day.
But I did not know when things would change.
Meanwhile Jennifer was getting progressively more affected by the foul energies coming through the thin walls from the room next door. At the time she didn’t want me mentioning this on the blog – she felt it would be an invasion of the other people’s privacy – but I can tell you now that there was some ugly stuff happening next door, and it was having a deleterious effect on Jennifer energetically.
Each day she was getting sicker and sicker.
I knew that we had to get out of there, and my feeling was that we would have to move up the road to the Galaxy Motel, which would probably be about $50 a night, but at least it wouldn’t have that foul gunk coming through the walls.
Meanwhile I was carrying no money and we were eating in cheap Mexican restaurants (I refused to eat cheap junk food) and having great lunches or dinners for $4.95.
And in fact we were at El Tequito Cafe in a low rent part of town having a Mexican breakfast when I got a message from Joni on my phone. She’d arrived back from Turkey, she’d read my blog, and she was horrified to see that we were staying at the Shady Oaks Motel. This was the morning of Day 4.
I’ve filmed myself listening to her voicemail message in the El Tequito – and it was wonderful: I’m going to get you out of that HELL HOLE!… get packed up I’m coming right over and getting you out of there…
She very kindly offered to put us all up at her house, but I gratefully declined. It was coming on Thanksgiving, and she had her sons coming in from other parts of the country, and I didn’t want to impose.
But she and her husband Daniel – a truly delightful man – used their connections in the travel and hotel industries (Joni used to work for an airline and Daniel was a former French restauranteur) and together they set about finding us better digs. And that’s how we ended up in The Adolphus which is, as Bimal predicted, a five star hotel.
Now, as for timing – Joni had been in Turkey. She arrived back on our Day 3, and contacted me the morning of Day 4. None of this had been pre-arranged. That was her timing. based on her work and travel schedule. She took it upon herself to get us out of the Shady Oaks. That was on her instigation – I didn’t ask her to. I was quite prepared to stay in cheap digs for the duration, or until something happened.
Also, some of you might be wondering if Joni knew Dr. Bimal Bhatt or he knew her.
They don’t know each other. They’ve never communicated, and still haven’t. Joni separately later did my charts and came up with the same prediction as Bimal, however she said that wasn’t unusual. If the charts are prepared correctly, with the same information, then the results will be the same.
I’ve tried to approach this whole experiment with pure intent – and by that, I mean staying pure to Bimal’s instructions.
Bimal wanted me to go to Dallas on this particular half lunar cycle because ultimately he wanted me to get the bad Cosmic Rays out of my system – those energies which he believed had been holding me back – and replace them with the good Dallas Golden Cosmic Rays, as he calls them, so that I can fulfil my destiny as predicted in the charts.
And remember, he said that really I should stay in Dallas for 11 years, if I am to fully realise my destiny.
As I alluded in last night’s post. major things are in process. I don’t know how they’re going to play out, but I’m relaxed about it all. If they play out as I’m hoping, then I’ll tell you all about it. if they don’t, then I won’t. It will be just another step along the road – another “sign” that I’m heading in the right direction.
The one thing I’ve learned through all this though – no, I’ve learned plenty – but one thing I’ve learned is that you can be volitional – you must be volitional – and then you must let go, to allow The Most Beneficial Galactic Cosmic Rays to do their magic.
I’m now waiting for magic to happen.
