The Secret – Interview With John Harricharan (Q3)
John Harricharan: Three blind men and the elephant. Everyone is trying to describe it differently. And everyone is right. Everyone is correct, but only partly so. There needs to be a place where there is not sectarianism, where it doesn’t matter what religion you belong to, what beliefs you have, because — let me explain very carefully, the law of gravity has no idea whether you are a Hindu, a Muslim, a Christian or a Catholic Christian or a Baptist Christian or a Luthe…

John Harricharan: Three blind men and the elephant. Everyone is trying to describe it differently. And everyone is right. Everyone is correct, but only partly so. There needs to be a place where there is not sectarianism, where it doesn’t matter what religion you belong to, what beliefs you have, because — let me explain very carefully, the law of gravity has no idea whether you are a Hindu, a Muslim, a Christian or a Catholic Christian or a Baptist Christian or a Lutheran Christian, a Sikh and a native American. The law of gravity has no regard for that.
It doesn’t care about your religion. It doesn’t care about your beliefs because if you stub your toe on a rock or a stone, the law of gravity will work just as well for you if you are black or white or brown or yellow or green or pink. That is the law of gravity.
However, the law of gravity will work with you in interesting ways. If you were to use the law of aerodynamics, you can fly. You are not defying gravity, you are working within it. So these laws will work for you, and I think every teacher out there or most teachers who teach these things from some of the ones you read about very often on the Internet, they are doing some good. But I think there needs to be a place where we deal with wholeness, not with parts, where we don’t have the blind men going to see the elephant and each one describes the elephant in his or her — his own way. We need to have one place. And that’s the place, I think, that we are creating here for a Spiritual Simplicity.
I learned a long time ago what Einstein said, everything should be made as simple as possible and not one bit simpler. And many, many years ago when I was privileged to meet and to stay with one of the great guru’s and swami’s of the 20th century, he also told me about Spiritual Simplicity, and that — it is that area that most people do not delve in because the human mind attempts to make it complex. One of the great mathematicians once said, God is simple, all else is complex.
So Vish and I, with the help of a few of our other friends who are also very spiritually uplifting people, whose names are well-known on the Internet and the — outside of the Internet, agreed to put together a place. It’s more of a mind gathering place than a physical place. It will be on the Internet. One will have access to it 24 hours a day, seven days a week, as long as one wants. In this place, it will be like an oasis.
One could come from a tired days work or just out of curiosity want to see what the universe is bringing to you. I feel it is going to be a blessed place where you will meet like-minded people. These are benefits that you wouldn’t find in many other places, because there is nothing to push.
We do not have to prove anything. We do not have to force anything, we’re just creating this place and those who are drawn to it will get the benefits of them, its like my talk with Richard Bach the great author who was on the cover of Time Magazine a few years ago for his book Jonathan Livingston Seagull.
When I asked Richard, I said Richard, who did you write the book for? Because it has certainly changed the lives of millions of people all over the world. And Richard said, you know I really wrote it for anybody and everybody and the book itself had an energy, which if someone is interested in it, they will drawn to the book, if there is no interest, the book goes some place else, simple.
A. Vishwanath: Yeah.
John Harricharan: The way of energy. So I feel that those who visit and come to this site become members of it would have a bag of tools, which they can use to make their lives successful in many ways. If they are very successful now, they could become much more successful and I don’t measure success in the form of just money or just health or just relationship. I think it has to do like — remember you and I and Yanik Silver, were talking the other day, that there has to be —
A. Vishwanath: Yeah.
John Harricharan: There has to be a balance with money, health and relationship.
A. Vishwanath: Yeah.
John Harricharan: And so those are the things that I think will happen at this site. I think there will be a kind of a magical feeling, a kind of a place of hope, a kind of a place of camaraderie, where youll never feel alone, where you will feel that there are very helpful people and energies that seem to be there that will help anyone along who gets into it with the proper feeling of wanting to do this.
A. Vishwanath: Yeah. Thank you very much, John. You know and I think — and these were the answers actually people were — people actually are looking for and I think you have explained it in the right manner. And actually in terms of benefits like the in the earlier night when myself, you and Yanik were speaking, you gave actually a wonderful example of you know locating the real source of problem where you gave an example of the you know the televisions set goes out, then you go out your microwave is — and so it does not work, whereas actually the real problem could be just the switch might have tripped and that is — so basically all these things that people would actually come to know the real source of problems, right? So could you explain a little a bit
John Harricharan: Absolutely. The funniest thing about that is, when you know, when you understand what is happening in you than you affect what is happening around you.
A. Vishwanath: Okay. So, yeah. Exactly, I mean you know they’ve had — and you know there is one more thing which actually you’re talking about that divine, you care a damn attitude and I think that was like most of the people — most important step is the first goal step in following our dreams and everyone struggles towards getting there, and I’m sure that 37% and you know I got the statistics from one place in the world, do not pursue the dreams, because of fear of being rejected by the near and dear ones. So could you speak a little bit on that, John?
John Harricharan: Yes. Again, what you were talking about there is, what I called a divine, don’t you give damn attitude, which is one of the first steps for success or for overcoming problems because when we touch on the problems, when we think about them we become scared and we get caught up in the mess of negativities and doubts and so forth.
And so when one gets to the point of developing an attitude, which is like and again, I point that’s many years ago, because I think it describes it a kind of a divine don’t give a damn attitude where you are not attached to the outcomes where you say to yourself, it doesnt matter what happens, it doesn’t matter what doesn’t happen. And you get to believe it then your world starts changing.
And so, I think you will find that as you start doing this there would be a lot of people around you, some who have always been comfortable with that family, friends and others. Who will wonder what’s happening with you and try to hold you down, remember we talked the other day about some of your loved ones trying to keep you back.
A.Vishwanath: Yes. Yes.
