Ramtha's Create Your Day DVD
If you liked the movie, What The BLEEP Do We Know!? and are ready to try and put to the test some of the
extraordinary and bizarre concepts presented there by the group of scientist and friends, you are going to be blown
away by Ramtha: Create Your Day DVD. This is a rare, close-and-personal, looking-in-the-eyes-of-greatness
instruction by Ramtha on the concept of creating your day mindfully, using the concepts of quantum physics and
the power of our minds to alter and shape reality. Having Ramtha explain these concepts at length that were
briefly presented in the movie, and then the camera closes up on Ramtha's face and his eyes, and you can literally
feel his piercing gaze, and there is so much more there that words cannot tell, but believe me, you can feel it, and
you will not forget it, nor his instruction on how simple yet profound it is to wake up every day, and instead of
letting the day create you, you create your day the way you would really like it to be, just as great Masters have
always done it. One of the great benefits of this DVD is that you can learn this art without having to go anywhere
else other than your TV set at home.
This Ramtha DVD was produced by BLEEP director, Mark Vicente, and has all the talent he shown us in the
BLEEP movie; not just for making a great entertaining movie, but for giving us a priceless message with it too! I
assure you, you are going to love this one!

Kids and adults of all ages can come and sing their holiday favorites to a very supportive audience. If you sign up
for this item, I will do my best to make sure and have at least one song of your choice. The evening will start with
soup and bread and the singing will begin around 7:30. There might even be some traditional holiday cookies for
dessert. The date is to be determined by the people who sign up but I am hoping for a winter evening in December.
