Lester Shares His Discovery
He went first to those who seemed to be already looking in that direction, the metaphysical groups. Looking in the newspaper, he found weekly meetings listed for the various groups in New York City and began to attend them and make friends.
After the three-month period, I attended a metaphysical group just two short blocks away, Dr. Schaefer's group. He would call the students up to the front and ask them to give a talk, The first time he called on me, I told him I didn't want to go up, so he by-passed me.
And then, after he stopped asking me, I realized it was silly. The only reason I wasn't speaking was that the old tendencies remained, but the effectiveness of them was totally gone. The compulsiveness was done away with and even though the tendency remained, it was like a burnt rope. If you try to pickup a burnt rope, it just falls apart. It looks like a rope, seems to be a rope, but it has no strength.
Quantum Physics & The Law of Abundance
There is a law of abundance (or attraction) that can be used to gradually bring wonderful changes into your existence! I have known deep in my heart these beautiful and inspiring truths all my life. If you hate your life, you need to refine, uplift, and purify your emotions, lifestyle, mental states and consciousness. Mastering the law of abundance can be achieved by becoming free of all addictions and attachments. Simply by eating only the healthiest and spiritually uplifting foods, you are also dramatically improving your state of being. Transforming not only your thoughts but your diet as well is an essential part of the whole process toward a greater inner fulfillment that may gradually transform circumstances.
Seeing that, I volunteered to go up and give a talk. First time in my life! Here I am, up in front of a group of about sixty people. When I got up there, I was surprised that I wasn't nervous. I was looking at them, they were looking at me. And as I was talking, I had a second thing going on in the background, "Gee!" I kept thinking. "This is easy. I never knew it was this easy!"
And that was my first experience in my life of getting up in front of a group and talking.
Lester also began to read books on metaphysical subjects and was pleased to find that the things he had experienced had also been experienced by others. In fact, there was quite a body of available literature on the subject.
He often found himself the center of attention with his new friends, because they had not met anyone before with such a depth of personal experience of what they were seeking for themselves. They found him very easy to talk to and were eager to hear how he had achieved his state of personal peace. It was difficult for him to put the actual process into words but he found that in talking to people on a deeply personal level, he would find the right thing to say to help them achieve some relief from their pent-up emotional blocks.
Lester Makes a Million Dollars
The primary thing he talked about in those days was the inner perfection of Beingness of each one. As he talked, in his mind he would see the other person as all-perfect, all-knowing, all-powerful--a perception that gave the other one quite a lift.
However, from his long-time experience in business, when asked, Lester would occasionally offer guidance on a practical level. And, in 1953, it occurred to him that despite all his accomplishments, he still had not made a million dollars. He had also noticed that many of his new friends had the impression that only by being poor could they have the freedom they'd read about. Many of them had interpreted the tranquil state as one of lack. Admonitions such as "Let go of your attachment to things" and "Things cannot make you happy" had been misinterpreted as meaning that one had to give up ambition, money, prosperity, and abundance in order to achieve inner tranquility.
Lester knew that this was not so, that it was the attachment to money and things that created the non-freedom and that this attachment was itself only a feeling. He was also very sure, based on his own experience, that all feelings could be corrected, let go of released. So he set out to make his million, to prove both that one could have and accomplish things in the world without the deadly attachment and that spiritual freedom didn't mean deprivation. On the contrary, it meant the ability to have, to be, and to do anything and everything. But talking about it was one thing. Actually doing it was the only way to prove it. He decided to prove his point with real estate in New York City.
In 1953, he began buying apartment buildings with no cash down. He would either run them for profit or sell them for quick profit. Within six months, he had acquired well over a million dollars equity in property.
I started in the real estate business with no cash and bought apartment houses using mortgages and loans. With no effort, I acquired twenty-three apartment houses of twenty to forty units each. I found it was easy to do.
Every deal had to be a very harmonious one. Everyone in it had to gain. If there were a broker involved, I made sure he got his full commission. The seller benefited by getting what he wanted, his building sold. And if there were a lawyer involved, he got his share. Everyone benefited in every deal.
That's the way all deals should be. There's no need for anyone to suffer. Everyone should get what he wants out of it. Everyone should benefit.
Every seller wants to sell. Every buyer wants to buy. I found that harmony is the basic law of the universe and when we're in tune with it, things can be done with little effort.
"What's the next step?" he wondered. He had proven he could apply his new theory to business, he had over a million dollars; what was left to prove?
Then it occurred to him that the need to accumulate wealth was not security. It could all be lost. Also, the need for accumulation indicated a lack of conviction in one's ability to produce what one needed at will. Therefore, he decided, "From here on, I have everything I need as I need it," and proceeded to test out still another theory.
Lester Tests His Abundance Theory
It was a few days before Christmas, cold, and I wanted a short vacation of two weeks in warm country.
Los Angeles was farthest away from New York City so I said, "Well, I'm having a vacation in Los Angeles over the Christmas- New Year holidays."
With full confidence that "everything is A-okay and taken care of" I packed a bag and walked out of the house. Within a block, I bumped into a man I hadn't seen for many, many years who said, "Hey, Lester! I've been looking for you. Remember that money I owed you? I've been wanting to pay you. I didn't know what happened to you." And he handed me enough cash to buy a round-trip ticket to Los Angeles, which I did, and immediately left.
When I got to Los Angeles, it occurred to me to call an old friend who said, "Oh, I'm so happy you called, Lester, we just got a new apartment, we have an extra room and you must stay with us. Where are you?" And they picked me up.
The next morning I was in the kitchen thinking, "Well, gee, here I am in Los Angeles without a car. It's impossible to get around without one." And I said, "Well, that's taken care of," and I dropped it.
Next thought came, "Call Burl." He was an old friend I had driven with from New York to Los Angeles some years earlier. I called Burl, and he said, "I've been thinking of you, Lester. Where are you? I want to see you and I'm coming right over." And he was there in a matter of about fifteen minutes.
And we're having coffee over the kitchen table and without my asking, he puts his hand in his pocket, takes his car keys out, slides them across the table to me and says "You've got my car as long as you stay here. I have no need for it. I'm living near the studio and I walk to work." I thanked him. Now I had everything I needed.
After about ten days, I got the feeling that I wanted to go back to New York. It was about January 3rd. I called TWA and they said, "Oh, I'm sorry. We have no reservations for thirty days, all taken up. And we can't even put you on the waiting list because the waiting lists each have thirty or more people."
I just said "Thank you", hung up and said to myself "Well, who needs a reservation? When I feel like going, I'll go!"
So, the next morning, I woke up and asked myself "Do I want to go?"
And I said, 'Yeah, I think I want to go."
The Hidden Treasures Are Within
This book is a compilation of fifteen inspirational articles regarding wholeness, meditating, how to choose your spiritual path, and how vital the hidden treasures of wholeness are for living a more full and complete life. Although this book includes some passages from the Bible and meditation-oriented information from the "Path of Sant Mat," this book is purely a spiritual text not meant to promote any religion. Most of this book will be about why wholeness is so essential and how to achieve it. I believe it is of utmost importance to make one's search for wholeness one's highest priority in what would otherwise be a temporary and fickle existence. To realize Spirit in one's life is vital for adding meaning to what would otherwise be a meaningless and materialistic existence.
I packed my bags and got down to the airport about ten o'clock, asked where the planes depart for New York, went to the gate, and a man was loading a plane for New York. I said, "Are there any no-shows?"
He said, "Yes, there is one. But wait until I load everyone. Just stand here."
While he was loading, a woman asked the same question.
He said, "I don't know, madam, but if you'll stand behind this man, we'll find out." And he put her behind me.
He loaded the plane, walked right toward me, reached around me, took this woman by the arm and put her on the plane.
As far as I was concerned, everything was 100% okay!
He came back to me and his jaw dropped! His mouth fell open when he realized what he had done. So I had to calm him down, instead of him calming me down. And after I calmed him down, I said, "Well, when's your next plane?"
He said, "In about an hour. Oh, there it is coming in right now."
Well, he put me on that plane, which got me to New York two hours earlier than the other one. It was a non-stop flight, the first one I ever had cross-country. At that time, they usually made at least one stop. Non-stop flights were new and few. This was in the days of the DC-6s and the Constellations; there were no jets at that time. It wasn't easy for them to make cross-country non-stop flights.
Then I remembered that when I'd hung up and said, "Who needs a reservation?" I'd said, "Not only that, I'll have my first non-stop flight cross-country." And that was the reason for his putting me off the first flight and putting me on the next one.
And so I got back to New York--started out with no money, and came back with no money.
Later, a trip around the world again proved the same principle of abundance: "I have everything I need as I need it."
Lester Abides in Truth, Shares His Discovery
After Lester's tremendous breakthrough into peace in 1952, that awareness of the truth never left him. Whether he was making a real estate deal, or visiting his family, or sharing his experience with others, he was always aware of and residing in his own inner Beingness of peace. People loved being with him because he saw them in the same way that he saw himself: all-beautiful, all-knowing, all-powerful, all-perfect, all-peaceful. This powerful perception projected itself to each receptive person and activated that inner core in which each was all those things. Many people had experiences of this truth of themselves while in his presence, and they were eager to have more and to hear of his experiences.
He was always happy to share with others and began giving talks about what he had done. At first there was no special effort or promotion in that direction, but through word of mouth people would hear of him and show up wherever he happened to be. Often, these impromptu gatherings would take place over coffee at a cafeteria on West 57th Street in New York.
Find Your Highest Joy - Suffering seems to come in as many forms as there are people. It seems that everyone has found their own ingenious way to suffer, and suffering is definitely a most congruent and defining part of humanity. Suffering is what makes, creates or defines the individual, or what makes the person. If there was no suffering, life would be like the sculptor without the chisel, no face could be rendered clearly, nor one's individuality could ever be well-defined! Do not be alarmed that suffering is such a defining part of humanity and such a seemingly impossible thing to avoid. We suffer to learn from our mistakes and improve our self-worth. Suffering is part of a feed-back mechanism to keep us motivated...
Also there were occasions when he drove coast-to-coast and on stopovers along the way, he would start talking to someone, he or she would get excited and call friends who would call their friends. Before long there would be a hundred or more people interested in hearing him speak. At those times, Lester would stay several days, the group would rent a large hotel meeting room and by the time of his talk, there were often a thousand or more people in attendance.
He never charged any fee for his work, nor would he accept any money when people offered it. He knew he had everything he needed as he needed it, he'd proven that more than once, and his real estate ventures continued to be profitable. He had no need for anything.
In 1958, it occurred to him to move to California. He gave up his New York apartment, bought himself a new Chrysler and a 31-foot mobile home, and headed west. His original destination was San Diego but, while driving through Arizona, he saw a signpost for Sedona and his inner voice said, "Go there."
"Why?" he asked himself.
"Just go," his inner voice answered, "and you'll see."
When he drove into the quiet Old-West town set in the midst of towering red rocks, he understood why he had been drawn to Sedona. The beauty and the feeling of peace were so strong, he felt as though he were coming home.
He contacted a realtor and was shown an isolated 160-acre ranch. He bought the property for cash, no mortgage, and moved into an old stone house which the original rancher had built on the property.
It was very peaceful, totally isolated and surrounded on all sides by forestry land. The nearest neighbor was a mile away, except for a woman who owned and occupied a small cottage just inside the ranch entrance gate. They would occasionally meet when both were out walking, and one day she mentioned how lonely she got living alone so far from town. As they talked, it occurred to Lester that she might like to trade her cottage and property for a similar house and property in town. When he proposed it to her she was delighted and accepted his offer to find a suitable lot and build a house on it to her specifications.
He did all the work himself. He dug and poured the foundation, erected the walls, put on the roof; he did everything. It was final proof to him that his health was totally restored and that he had regained the strength, energy, and stamina of a very young man. When the house was finished, they traded. He called his new acquisition the cottage.
Now his ranch was totally isolated, and he stayed there alone for the next few years. Once or twice a month he would make the trip into town for food and supplies, but the rest of the time he was alone on the ranch. It was a very different way of life than anything he had ever experienced before, and he loved it.
His work with people, however, never completely stopped. He would occasionally drive the 110 miles to Phoenix to stay for several days or a week at a time. He also invested in some apartment houses in Phoenix during the 1960's.
After a few years, he began to make periodic trips several times a year to California where he had a regular group he worked with. And every year or so he would go to New York.
People sought him out at the ranch, too, which he had named "Self Haven." In 1961, the first person, a man named Doug Dean, came to stay for a while at the cottage. Shortly after Doug left, three women came. As the years went by, others came and went, and until 1975 there were always some people living at the cottage. A few women stayed for several years, but most people came for a few months or so to get themselves quiet and re-energized. Then they would leave to resume their lives in the world.
It was a very peaceful way of life and Lester was content. The comings and goings of himself and others were incidental and were never able to touch or disturb the vast quiet of the inner state he had discovered in himself in 1952. He could have gone on that way for the rest of his life were it not for his wish that everyone discover that state for themselves. He felt his oneness with all and, as he described it:
"I wanted the rest of me to discover what I had discovered. So, after a while, I began thinking on how to get this knowledge out to more people."

ABUNDANCE (Shefa) (Derived from original article found at Ka-Gold-Jewelry.com)
"Not what we have but what we enjoy constitutes our abundance." -
The abundance (Shafa) symbol was received in direct transmission from Archangel Metatron by Dvora Pearlman. It was received as a teacher and a tool - to learn, to use and to connect with divine flow and its manifestation in three dimensional realities. The Hebrew word for abundance is Shefa.
Sacred Hebrew language
In the Jewish tradition, Hebrew is the sacred language of creation. The Hebrew language is so sacred that it wasn't spoken for the day-to-day actions. Aramaic and later Yiddish were used as the spoken languages while Hebrew was dedicated only to prayers and holy work. In the Kabala, Hebrew is a language of creation. It is a language that can be used to create reality. In fact, it is believed to be the tool used by the Creator to create this universe.
The Power of Words|
The sacredness of spoken language is not singularly Jewish. The Indian sacred language - Sanskrit, holds the same power and holy attributes. It is the innate ability to create that makes both Hebrew and Sanskrit holy languages. This is what the SHEFA symbol comes to teach.
SHEFA is a word in its highest most profound meaning, a tool for creating abundance. It holds a powerful kinetic energy that when coupled with intent for the highest good and aligned with Divine will, can move mountains or feed the world.
Close your eyes and find a peaceful quiet place inside yourself. Ground yourself well and open your Crown charkas to allow the energy of higher light to come into your body. See the SHEFA symbol with your inner eye and allow it to enter your body. Start rotating it, this way creating a 3-D object. Allow it to move up and down in your body. Let it shrink so it can rotate in your cells and let it grow so it can imbued your whole auric field with SHEFA. Let it teach you the ways to work with it, let it answer your questions. Let it be the kinetic force behind your actions.
MAY YOU LIVE YOUR LIFE WITH SHEFA

The Four Spiritual Laws of Prosperity: A Simple Guide to Unlimited Abundance by Edwene Gaines - Editorial Reviews - From Publishers Weekly - Prosperity, says Gaines, is our birthright, a divine inheritance that incorporates not just material abundance but also a comprehensive knowledge of the consciousness of God. Gaines, a Unity minister, was once down-at-heel and wondering where the next meal was coming from, but now lives a life of luxury. She claims that to follow her example, readers need only put into practice four simple spiritual laws: tithe ten percent of all they earn or receive; set specific financial and spiritual goals; forgive others and themselves daily; and find and commit to a divine purpose. Gaines is well-schooled in Unity principles and the basic New Thought understanding of the power of positive thinking. Thus, for example, she includes an exercise for readers to utter no negative words for 21 days and watch, amazed, as their lives are transformed. Some of the book's stories of divine assistance with finances will spark skepticism in even the most credulous of readers, like Gaines's anecdote about winning a $100 grocery spree immediately after praying for food for her refrigerator, or a story about dreaming that she was supposed to go to Knoxville, Tenn., the night before a study group in that town sent word that they were looking for a Unity minister. Gaines's program is clear and her tone endlessly enthusiastic, but many readers will undoubtedly question her claims of limitless abundance.

Many books explain what the Law of Attraction is, but this is the first devoted solely to practical, fun activities that teach those who are new to the law how to apply it, guiding them every step of the way.
From the Publisher
So you've discovered The Secret or have otherwise been introduced to the Law of Attraction: NOW WHAT?
This delightful book offers 30 simple, practical, and fun hands-on activities that teach anybody how to successfully use the Law of Attraction to create a more abundant, more meaningful, and far richer life. If you've set goals for yourself and have been unsuccessful in achieving them thus far, your luck (luck? okay, there's really no such thing) is about to change!
Although the Law of Attraction is currently one of the hottest topics in the self-development field, it is also a law that has been in existence since the dawn of time, and is no secret to the many who have used it to create remarkable and meaningful lives. The trick is to learn how it works. By understanding how to apply the Law of Attraction purposefully rather than by default, you can have, be, and do anything that you desire.
This book has been created specifically for beginners. It explains the Law of Attraction in simple terms. Through analogy and example, you are guided through the 5 steps involved in applying the Law of Attraction successfully:
1. Asking for what you want
2. Knowing that you are worthy of having it
3. Removing all doubt that it is coming
4. Remaining in a positive emotional state
5. Receiving it through right action
Then, you are shown how to actually do each of these steps through a series of easy-to-follow, fun activities. If you don't know what you want, if you feel unworthy of having all that you desire, if your dreams seem unreachable or impossible, or if you find yourself feeling discouraged at never being able to follow through on your goals and dreams, then you need to read this book!

Creating Money: Attracting Abundance (Sanaya Roman) by Sanaya Roman and Duane Packer - Editorial Reviews - Network Quarterly, October 1997 - Money is one form of abundance that occupies most peoples minds at one time or another. When I read the preface, I discovered this book included channeled information. After reading it, I dont care who wrote it. Its good. It offers a common-sense, spiritualistic approach to creating what you want in your life.
Aquarius, Sign of the Times, February 1998 - If you were to ask a group of fifty people if they would like to be wealthy, chances are good that all would say yes. If you asked them what they'd do with the money, some would say they'd quit their jobs, travel or buy a bigger, better house. Still, many would say they'd change careers, do the work they've always wanted to do.
Its a fact that a greater percentage of the planets population is working at ill-fitted jobs, and, they believe, ill-fated. But the truth is what you have and where you are today are the results of all the choices and decisions you have made, and many have been based on past programming rather than on the new unlimited thinking, as taken up in Sanaya Roman and Duane Packers book Creating Money: Keys to Abundance. This book, filled with a wealth of advice channeled to the authors from their spirit guides, was first published ten years ago, and applies more than ever today.
The New Times, March 1989 - This book is about more than creating money, although that is the primary focus. Whether we like it or not, the Earth plane still uses money as the system of exchange of energy. Many people within the New Age have wonderful ideas they would like to implement but which are often foiled from the beginning partially due to lack of funding. The approach used in Creating Money is that in order to manifest many of our visions and dreams, money is needed and learning how to have money and use it to higher purposes is a good goal to attain.
John Harricharan for Body Mind Spirit magazine, September/October 1988 - Many books have been written about money and how to get it, but most times they are filled with impractical and theoretical ramblings. Creating Money by Sanaya Roman and Duane Packer is a refreshing change. The authors have created an extremely practical and useful book to assist anyone who has money problems.
The book is divided into four sections, each dealing with certain aspects of the money problem, but all four blend together in such a way as to give the reader one of the most practical guides for becoming wealthy. Roman and Packer do not preach, but gently lead you through a myriad of universal truths that impact directly on your pocket book or bank account.
A series of practice exercises combined with a number of worksheets (which the authors call playsheets) assist the reader in following the true essence of the manuscript and, at the same time, serve as a summary for some of the more important areas of focus.
For all those who have ever had problems with money, for those who are struggling to make a living, or for those who simply would like to improve their quality of life, this book is a candidate for the Required Reading List. It should be re-read many times and occupy a prominent place on your bookshelf.

Beyond the Secret: Spiritual Power and the Law of Attraction by Lisa Love - Editorial Reviews - Product Description - Review
"Reading this book can help you to find happiness and when you do, you will be a success." Bernie Siegel, MD, author, 365 Prescriptions for the Soul and Prescriptions for Living
"Beyond the Secret reveals the true nature of the Law of Attraction, so that we may avoid the pitfalls of spiritual grasping and fulfill our true service to the world." Carol Adrienne, PhD, author, The Purpose of Your Life
"The much-ballyhooed Law of Attraction should come with a warning Oscar Wilde's observation that 'When the gods want to punish us, they answer our prayers.' It is no secret that people attract what they want; the key is to want the right things, for the right reasons. Beyond the Secret is a valuable step in this direction." Larry Dossey, MD, author, The Extraordinary Healing Power of Ordinary Things
"OK, so what if we can attract some of the things we desire? As Lisa Love makes abundantly clear, what is far more important is learning what is worth desiring in the first place." Roger Walsh, MD, PhD, University of California Medical School; author, Essential Spirituality: The Seven Central Practices
"Written in a clear and inviting manner, Beyond the Secret is a bold and fearless attempt to get readers to understand the difference between using the Law of Attraction in an egotistical, versus a spiritual way. A very important book, indeed!"--Susan Jeffers, PhD, author of Embracing Uncertainty and The Feel the Fear Guide to Lasting Love
"Beyond the Secret will guide you on the path of fulfillment. Learn how to manifest from the inside, out and not only realize your deepest desires but help co-create a better world for the highest good of all."--Jean-Marie Hamel, PhD, author of Living From the Inside Out and host on Progressive Radio Network
"When I first saw "The Secret" on DVD I had some concerns about the simplistic manner used in conveying the message of The Law of Attraction, especially to those who were not too familiar with the concept. What I loved most about Lisa Love's book Beyond the Secret is that it explains in a simple yet thorough manner to the layperson what and how to use The Law of Attraction. It does not embellish any false perceptions about the possibility of 'winning the lotto' to someone who maybe in a severe economic situation. This is an honest and engaging book that will take you 'Beyond The Secret'."--Samira Rao, author of Living in Chaos is Living in Stability
"This book is not only a wonderful response to the idea of the law of attraction but a guide as to how to manifest through faith what you need to be of the greatest service rather than what you may think you want. If the motives are pure the reward is always far greater than anything we may desire."--Calina Burns-Owner & VP CBuJ Entertainment, BOD member Lymphatic Research Foundation
Product Description - Since the publication of The Secret, everyone seems to be talking about the Law of Attraction. In the popular imagination, everything we desire can be ours. But the Law of Attraction is more than the power of positive thinking or a plan to get rich quick. In Beyond the Secret, Lisa Love teaches us how to use the Law of Attraction spiritually. Instead of focusing on the selfishness and greed in human nature that leads us to want, want, want, Love inspires her readers to see beyond the individual ego and to attract and retain objects and events that will be beneficial to ourselves and to others.
Lisa Love makes the Law of Attraction accessible to everyone, revealing essential insights on how to discover true and lasting life satisfaction.
Beyond the Secret teaches you to:
-understand what Spirit wants for you in this life
-use the Law of Attraction to gain insight into yourself and your destiny
-create and maintain a deeply satisfying sense of spiritual fulfillment
Not everyone can use the Law of Attraction to win the lottery or to become the next American Idol, but everyone can use the Law of Attraction to become a happier and better person.
