1976 (Cabaret style live performance of this classic Francois / Revaux song, with English Lyrics by Paul Anka on Shirley Bassey's 1976 TV Variety Series. Shirley performs this song in the very dramatic & emotional Cabaret Style where she acts out many of the lyrics. Shirley usually takes a song written for a musical, and re-arranges it to have more of a POP flavor. But, this song is just the opposite. If there ever was a musical which included this song, Shirley's powerfully dramatic version as shown in this clip would be the epitome of how it should be sung in the big belter final act. This song for the most part has been recorded and sung by male artists, such as Shirley's ole friend Frank Sinatra going back to the early days of Las Vegas, but here Shirley the DIVA does her gender proud, and when she lifts the roof with her big belter ending, 'AND I DID IT.....MY WAY' people listening and watching will believe it!
ABOUT this song:
"My Way" is a song with lyrics written by Paul Anka and popularized by Frank Sinatra. The melody is based on a French song "Comme d'habitude" composed by Claude François and Jacques Revaux. Anka's English lyrics are unrelated to the original French by Claude François and Gilles Thibaut and Anka is credited as a co-composer of "My Way" because he largely re-wrote the song. "My Way" is often quoted as the most remade song in history.
Paul Anka heard the original 1967 French pop song, Comme d'habitude (as usual) performed by Claude Francois with music by Claude Francois and Jacques Revaux and lyrics by Claude Francois and Gilles Thibault, while on holiday in the south of France. He flew to Paris to negotiate the rights to the song. In a 2007 interview, he said: "I thought it was a bad record, but there was something in it." He acquired publishing rights at no cost and, two years later, had a dinner in Florida with Frank Sinatra and "a couple of Mob guys" at which Sinatra said he was "quitting the business. I'm sick of it, I'm getting the hell out".
Back in New York, Anka re-wrote the original French song for Sinatra, subtly altering the melodic structure and changing the lyrics: "At one o'clock in the morning, I sat down at an old IBM electric typewriter and said, 'If Frank were writing this, what would he say?' And I started, metaphorically, 'And now the end is near.' I read a lot of periodicals, and I noticed everything was 'my this' and 'my that'. We were in the 'me generation' and Frank became the guy for me to use to say that. I used words I would never use: 'I ate it up and spit it out.' But that's the way he talked. I used to be around steam rooms with the Rat Pack guys - they liked to talk like Mob guys, even though they would have been scared of their own shadows." Anka finished the song at 5am. "I called Frank up in Nevada - he was at Caesar's Palace - and said, 'I've got something really special for you.'" Anka claimed: "When my record company caught wind of it, they were very pissed that I didn't keep it for myself. I said, 'Hey, I can write it, but I'm not the guy to sing it.' It was for Frank, no one else."
Dame Shirley Bassey recorded the song for her 1970 album Something. She also performed in live on numerous occasions notably the 1976 Royal Variety Performance. In the weeks following Sinatra's death in 1998 , Bassey sang is as a tribute to him on her "Diamond" concert tour.
And now, the end is near;
And so I face the final curtain.
My friend, I'll say it clear,
I'll state my case, of which I'm certain.
I've lived a life that's full.
I've traveled each and ev'ry highway;
But more, much more than this,
I did it my way.
Regrets, I've had a few;
But then again, too few to mention.
I did what I had to do
And saw it through without exemption.
I planned each charted course;
Each careful step along the byway,
But more, much more than this,
I did it my way.
Yes, there were times, I'm sure you knew
When I bit off more than I could chew.
But through it all, when there was doubt,
I ate it up and spit it out.
I faced it all and I stood tall;
And did it my way.
I've loved, I've laughed and cried.
I've had my fill; my share of losing.
And now, as tears subside,
I find it all so amusing.
To think I did all that;
And may I say - not in a shy way,
"No, oh no not me,
I did it my way".
For what is a woman, what has she got?
If not herself, then she has naught.
To say the things she truly feels;
And not the words of one who kneels.
The record shows I took the blows -
And did it my way.

Any more questions?
*To get initiated, do you have to be a vegetarian?
*And then what exactly does initiation do to you? Like, I believe in while we are on this Earth that we live as close as possible to the real God, which is love yourself and love one another (That's good.) and be non-judgmental, and not only meditating and praying, but to do, actually do, the will of God. In other words, try to be the light of this world, instead of giving people a bad time or giving them hard feelings.
It's good. That's good. You're already there, yes?
*Plus the deed is not only what you do, but did, in your thought-life, as well.
Sure, sure, sure, sure. We'll take care of all that at the initiation.
*The initiation will enhance that I can do all those? Because daily I self-examine myself, sometimes I see myself… I'd rather really walk the walk of love. (I understand.) Sometimes I'm very temperamental, sometimes I get angry at the people who… so slow! (Yes, yes.) And I get so tired. (Very honest.) “She shouldn't be on the street, because she doesn't know how to drive!” Then I get mad and I don't know… (It's all right.)
And I do it exactly opposite to what God is: total forgiveness. And when I do something for people, I said, “I did this for him or her, she didn't even say 'thank you.'” Because I shouldn't feel that way when I do something.
I understand, yes. You're already very good. You're already very good.
*But I want to do it, (All right.) but I can't be…
So what do you expect now? What next?
*My question is: So, what will initiation do to me?
No promise. Report! Report! Please report. You see, the initiation is not about personality cult. It is the inner connection with what you want to see, the God that you always worship and want to know the will of. See, you have to get in touch with Hirm. The line of the “telephone” has to be connected. That's all. Now it's broken, okay? I have to connect it, and then you will see God for yourself and you'll hear Hirm speaking in a musical way; and then that musical without language, will change your life, and whatever way He wants to transform you or She wants to transform you, that I cannot promise. But 99.999% is for the better, unless you don't want to.
*Thank you very much.
*Master, you asked for some report. May I say something according to that?
*My personal experience changed me dramatically. I'm much more tolerant to people, driving-wise and otherwise, in every way, shape and form. And all I had to do was meditate two-and-a-half hours a day, just as the Master requested, and day by day it's changing so gradually, so subtly, inside. One day I realized that, yes, it has affected my life tremendously. So I just wanted to share that with you.
*I wasn't sure if I could report this, but after initiation, March 28, 1993, you spoke to me and you invited me to your house. I had been in Honolulu for 10 days. I didn't know where the address was, so I went home. The next day I meditated on the bus and when I opened my eyes I was in a strange place. So I got off the bus and I was in front of the address of the house where you were staying. So I went inside and I met with people and they explained the vegetarian diet to me so I could follow. But since then I wanted to thank you for this.
No improvement except the wrong bus? The wrong bus to the right direction, nothing else?
*Well, actually, that was just the first of many miraculous events.
All right. Of course, after initiation, every day is a miraculous day, but sometimes we take it for granted. Too many, we can't write it. (*It sure is.) It sure is.
*I would like to be able to say in words what it's done to me, but that's kind of difficult, because it isn't easy to articulate. I know that I have done several forms of meditation. I've been in Buddhist temples in Japan and in other countries, and done silences and have been really moved in my life by those, but I have not… The clarity and the freedom and the peace that I have now is 100% more than I had before.
It doesn't mean I don't have a long way to go. Not only from the meditating, in the way that you've instructed me, but also from the vegetarian diet. I grew up in the Midwest, on the mainland, where cows and pigs were what you ate, and I truly didn't think I could ever get those out of my diet, and it's amazing that 24 hours after I heard the way you said it, something cellular struck me that this is what I was supposed to do - and I did it for me. And now I care about the animals, too. I mean, it strikes a very lovely chord in me that I could even say this to you. I wanted to say that to you.
This is it, yes. This is what the vegetarian diet is about: the true love from within for all beings. Not because the Master says so or Jesus said so or Buddha said so, or because I don't want the bad karma (retribution) of killing. It's truly because we have love for the animals. That is the way you started. That's the right way, and I'm happy for you. (*Thank you, deeply.) Good for you.
*I was a vegetarian before I had initiation, but this last year, it's been very strange. I was a macrobiotic eater before, and just recently I went to a naturopathic doctor and he recommended that I go on a juice fast, a vegetable juice fast.
Yes, it sounds all right. And then what happened? Why? You were sick?
*Not really, but it's like a cleansing diet.
You want some kind of purification for the body? (*Yes.) All right, then what happened?
*And I was on a fast for like about almost 100 days.
*He wanted me to clean out my colon.
That's a long purification. And then, so what happened now?
*And I stopped because it was pretty long. But I was just wondering if this is part of that purification of the...?
I didn't recommend that. (*No.) But if you want to, you can try. I am all for liberation.
*It sort of just unfolded by itself.
Was it good for you? Did you feel better anyway? You lost weight? (*Yes.) Very skinny now. You feel okay? If you feel okay, it's all right, I guess.
*I guess that's my experience of vegetarianism, since I was initiated.
That is very, very “vegetarian,” extremely. We didn't recommend that. It's all right. You just be normal, okay? But if you want to sometimes go on a fast because you feel heavy or something in the body, it's all right with me. But you don't need to, all right? Every day if we eat not too heavy, about 80% and then drink 10% of fluids, that's enough. That should be a very ordinary diet, and no need to go into extremes, unless the doctor recommends you sometimes, yes? He did? You're so skinny. That's enough, 100 days. That's a lot! What did you drink all that time? Orange juice?
Carrot juice, potato juice, celery juice?
Yes, yes. And a kind of sprout juice and the wheat juice. Okay.
*My name is Ken Wu from Chicago. I'm attending the Anthony Robbins seminar (Hi.) and I'm so happy to be here. And I didn't expect this when I left Chicago for this seminar to be able to meet you, because I know you were in Chicago in February, and I missed you and I read about you in the paper. I said, “Oh!
It's wonderful that I can meet that Master someday.” And then July the 24th, there was a street fair in Chicago Chinatown, and there was a booth of your disciples there. And I picked up for the first time some books and I purchased some videotapes of you and I immediately decided, after reading the free booklet, that I would want to be a vegetarian, (Good for you.) and I started that and there were some struggles from that day on, but I think I will overcome that. (Good for you.) It's just, like, magical that I'm here, because it's, I guess, destiny brought us together and also with all these people. (I guess so, too.) And then my wife is here with me.
Where is your wife?
* And she was skeptical, and I said, “You've got to come, for some reason there's got to be something great happening.” So that's why I'm here. Thank you very much.
All right. Don't force her. Are you still skeptical, wife? (*No.) No. I'm pretty honest. Don't I look so? Yes.
*Master, I too am very honored to be here. I am too from the Robbins seminar.
*From what I have discovered in the last 24 hours about you and your teaching, and from what I know, having spent nine months listening to Tony Robbins' teaching, there is so much similarity between what he teaches on one level, and what you teach on another level altogether, that I pray that somehow the two of you will come together.
And I think that many, many of his students - and I only put it at that level because he is not a spiritual teacher, he is a psychologist - but so many of his students are meditators and so many of them would be able to take their lives to a completely new level if they could hear you speak. So I think that all of the people from Robbins here, and many of the meditators who wished us luck in coming over to see you tonight, who regretted that they weren't able to, I think they will pray that somehow you and he, or certainly you and his people, will get together at some stage when the time is right.
Thank you. It's up to God.
Sometimes I work very hard for something, I thought I would be able to help or do something, and then God says, “Plop! No. Forget it.” Then I just forget it and go to sleep. All right. There is no hard feeling. I want to tell you, God always tricks me into going somewhere. I told you already in the beginning of the meeting. He tricks me all the time, or She tricks me all the time. I am used to it. That's nothing. I am always laughing at everything, because I know. I'm used to it with the Old Man, or Old Woman, Old Mother.
Actually, it's very, very clear to me, all right? So if I come here and miss the opportunity to be with your people, to be with your teacher, that is also all right. It's not the main point, okay? I know very clearly. Thank you, anyhow, and please convey my love and regards to your teache
*Master, I live on the Big Island of Hawaii, and I was also at the Robbins seminar, helping my friend with her children. And I just wondered if you have any insights into... It's so frustrating, being on the Big Island and seeing them wanting to end all the growing of food and the agriculture and all that. They want to just build everything all over the whole island and turn it into, like another French Riviera and all this sort of thing, and I just get so frustrated, because every time I try to… I go to the meetings and I say, “You know, don't you see that this has happened everywhere else?” It happened on Oahu.
It happened on Maui. It happened all over California, where people don't have a balance with nature and they just start destroying nature and the reef and the water and everything, and I get so frustrated, because I am friends with the dolphins, and I swim with dolphins on the Big Island, and it's almost like they communicate to you about what's happening to the ocean. And so that is a big concern to me, the ocean and what building and all this development does, and it really changes the island.
And I just wondered if you have any insights. I am frustrated about what to do, what we can do to save the Big Island - at least, hopefully keep it, the Aina, safe, and the animals and the ocean clean and pure. And, is it possible on the planet anymore to stop this madness? And no matter what you do, the politics… they just pay off the politicians. And everyone just pays them off and they vote against, even though you pointed out all the things that are really bad about this. So many people have moved from other places because they want to be where the land is pure and beautiful like Hawaii.
Yes, I share with you your anxiety. The other day I had breakfast with one of the natives. He took me out to buy some books and magazines. I thought I'd just get out for a few minutes and get some books, and then we talked about Hawaii
And I say I share sympathy with the people in Hawaii. There are always the good and bad points of everything. For example, we talked about nearly 100 years ago, Hawaii still had a Queen, yes, the monarchy?
Of course, there are never perfections in this world. And one good point is that our native initiates told me, the good point is that it's developed, the island has developed, and it's also more prosperous, and also good education for the people. And another, bad, point is that some of the Hawaiians lost their land unjustly. They cannot prove that they have a paper that they owned the land, which they did not need before. Everybody
in the neighborhood would know that land belonged to that man, and they'd live honestly together and they'd just shake hands to do business: no transaction paper and no lawyer, nothing. And now probably some other foreigner comes, and the native people could never prove - some of them never proved that they owned this land and that land, and then they've been pushed out, and then became like homeless, and even treated not very nicely sometimes.
These are the bad things. So, similar to Big Island now, probably it will be developed into a very well-known spot for the whole world to enjoy, but then, at the sacrifice of the natives. And I do not know what is the best to tell you, apart from being very sympathetic with the native people and the people like yourself; I do not really know what the answer is the best.
*So it's best to continue to speak out, even though it seems fruitless to do so?
Well, at least it makes you feel good and brings you in contact with the people with the same mind, and then you can comfort each other. Maybe you can find a better way or a compromise. I heard that Molokai also now is being bombarded with civilization, new buildings and things like that. Is that right? Actually, I wrote to the government of Hawaii.
I wrote to them last year, or two years ago, or something, a long time. I said Molokai is a very desolate island, people don't live there, only a small community, compared to other places, which is not developed. And I said, it is very good for development, can make it into a more prosperous place; otherwise it's a waste of a very beautiful and big island. Because before, they used to put leprosy people there only, and a handful of the community there.
I heard there are only a few hundred people even. When I heard the report about that, about the island, so I wrote to the government, I said, “Well, they need some good management and know-how technical people to come and develop the island.” Because the other islands are so crowded and polluted, and Molokai is like empty. People told me that it's a superstition in Hawaii, the people don't dare live in Molokai because it used to be the ancestral burial ground. Is that not so? I'm not sure whether the information they reported to me is correct. Is that so?
*I'm really not that familiar with Molokai. (Okay, fine.) On Molokai they have a big water problem.
A big water problem. Water problem! Okay. So if they drill the ground, they would have it. ( *It's difficult.) They don't have water in Molokai? (*Not too much.) But that I don't think is any problem; we can get it from other islands, if it's developed But they don't answer me on this. And, they say, well, if they let the Aulacese (Vietnamese) refugees come in on this… I'm reported that nobody wants to live there because of the ancestral burial ground, and people are scared, and things like that. Something happens there, always.
That's what I'm reported, okay? I'm not native also. Anyhow, so I thought, okay, if it's a waste place and nobody wants to go there, then why don't just give the Aulacese (Vietnamese) refugees? I wrote to the government.
And we finance whatever we can, according to the number. If they say our money is not enough, then we finance a half or something.
But now, I heard that they developed Molokai Before, nobody wanted to develop; everybody just wanted to get out, and now everybody wants to get in, according to the newspapers I read recently. Is that not so? Some of the native people there also don't want development. They say that will destroy the landscape and affect the peaceful atmosphere of Molokai.
But on one hand, I'm sympathetic for the people of the island; on the other hand, I don't really know, because sometimes we have to share the good things with the whole world, and that is sometimes inevitable. And if we don't share it peacefully, maybe sometimes we are forced to share it in a violent way, and it is even worse. It is not even so pleasurable to do so. That's what happens with Wars around the world. What people cannot get peacefully, they force it on us by war, with war. That's how nations make war against nations, because they envy that piece of land that they don't have and we don't share with them.
Maybe it's God's will that we have to share everything, even though we don't like it. I do not really have the good answer for you. I'm very sympathetic to the natives, because I know what it's like to be homeless, while you own a piece of beautiful land before, and it's yours and suddenly you become homeless. And I told our disciple, the native, the Hawaiian that had breakfast with me that day, I said to him… you remember? I don't tell you lie.
Everything is correctly the way we said. So I said to him, “I can very well Understand the feeling of the people here,” because sometimes the law forces people into homelessness. It's too strict, too rigid Like I have a piece of land, I bought it about four or five years ago. It's supposed to be for our disciples but then they could not make use of it.
All right. So I came. I bought another land now for them anyhow, because I promised. I cannot go back on my promise. And that land, you couldn't even park the trailer on it
because of the law. I don't know whether the law is correct or not, or the person who represents the law makes trouble for fun, just to show that they have authority. The trailer is like a car, you can't even park on your own land. It's troublesome. And I paid every penny of it, and I pay tax every year and for four years I have not been there. I only came there once every four years. I could not even park a trailer to stay there for a while.
They came up to say “you have to pull out the electricity.” Electricity, we share with the neighbor, it's legal, that he uses only half, and then half of it you, it's all right - but cannot. “Pull all the electricity out, take all the trailers out.” Nothing in there, “You have to build the house first. But, before you build the house, you have to build a road.” It costs US$160,000, and we already have a road. They are not pleased with that road. “That road is too narrow, too high. You have to build another road.” We already have been up and down for many months, no problem. Okay, fine! I can afford US$160,000, but I don't pay for it. I don't want to destroy a piece of beautiful land, to cut hundreds more trees down just for another road and I said to the people, “Forget it! Drop it! Drop it! I don't even want that land.
Just leave it there, leave it there so that it keeps the environment,” because all the surroundings of my land is bald, no more trees. If it's fire or anything - destroyed - typhoon... And only in our place it's lush, it's green, and I wanted to keep it. I said, “I don't want to cut one half more trees. Half a tree more I won't cut.” And to build a road like this, it costs hundreds of trees and it costs hundreds of years to grow one tree, and the environment's already so dry. And I got hurt, that to think of a few billion more raindrops less next year if I cut these trees and make the road to build my house. I don't even need a house.
The law is fine, but they should know that the law is to protect citizens, not the citizens to protect the law. Like this, no one can afford to live there. And it is 40 acres of land - wasted. Nobody can live, not even a trailer. A trailer is not a mobile home -very small, and it's like a car, and you can't park your car on your land. That's how many Americans are forced into homelessness. How can a normal citizen afford a US$100,000 plus road before he can build a house? Without road, you can't build a house, you can't have electricity, you can't have anything, you know I mean?
So it's a must. And you can't even build the road yourself to save money. No! The government has to build it, agents from government. You can't build it yourself. If you build it yourself, you have our labor, probably it's cheaper; and the government, all they have to do is just come and measure if it's up to the standard. Then it's also a little bit more logical. No! You can't do it -and they force some ofthe ordinary citizens into homelessness and into doing some crimes sometimes, because they are too angry and because they are forced into a corner and have nowhere to turn and no alternative.
When their kids are hungry and their wives are sick at home, what else can they do? So the law is good,but sometimes it's too rigid on people. Yes? I can afford it, but other people cannot afford. Yes? Besides, I don't spend that money on myself to come every 4 years, stay in a trailer. I have to build a house, a road for US$160,000. Even US$16, I won't build to cut the trees andmake the environment become worse. That's the problem.
So I can understand also the native people here, because it happened to me. It happened to me. The system sometimes crushes people, crushes the ordinary citizens, under their feet and make them feel very pressured and depressed. So try to work out a moderate solution, if you can. If not, well, you have God. All right? If you lose everything else, you have God. What else can I tell you?
It’s all right.
*******SupremeMasterTV**** – Miracles on the Path:“The Tofu Machine” and “The Love Song. Episode: 1858, Air Date: 16 October 2011.
A blind man is restored to sight. The deceased is raised to life. Mortals see Heaven before their eyes. The holy scriptures are full of wonders witnessed in the presence of great enlightened Masters. Do unexplainable events we call miracles still happen?
Through Supreme Master Ching Hai’s loving guidance in the Quan Yin practice of meditation, members of our Association worldwide have encountered their own extraordinary incidents in their daily lives. Such privileged moments are a true Master’s grace manifested. Supreme Master Ching Hai has often accredited her students’ miracles to their own reawakened greatness, natural outcomes of daily contact with the Divine.
Every time you pray, miracles will happen all the time because you are in the direction of benevolence and miracles. We are also the miracles. If we know how to tap into this miraculous power within ourselves, then we are in full power, empowered with all miracles and all the mighty power that we can imagine.
In a foreign land, I met you some years ago. Your nun’s robe, the color of faded brown, Both worldly life and renunciation uncertain. Born with a headstrong personality, In a female form, you endured controversy.
I read the old verse with nostalgia – A cheerful line here, a line of grievance there. Each polished sentence Still quietly reflects your grace and elegance. When you passed on, who cried and who rejoiced? To whom could you explain the misjudgments and turmoil? Pray to the Three Jewels on the high abode May the Awakened Soul be saved from the world of sorrow!
Beauty is often ill-fated; A poet’s hair turns gray before others’! Alas! Alas! At the Buddha’s altar, I lit a fragrant incense In reverence And prayed to Amitabha Buddha To take the kindhearted to the Western Land... Namo Buddha Namo Dharma (Teachings) Namo Sangha (Assembly of renunciates) Namo Quan Yin Bodhisattva Mahasattva! To take the kindhearted to the Western Land...

We now invite you to this episode of a series sharing amazing true stories about our Association members’ modern-day miracles on the path.
As during this 1999 lecture given in Poland, Supreme Master Ching Hai has often said that seeking God within is humans’ foremost purpose which also leads to a happier life on Earth.
As a disciple of Supreme Master Ching Hai, Vân, our Association member from Âu Lạc (Vietnam), not only receives guidance in her spiritual development, but also help in her daily life.
I’d like to tell a story in which Master’s transcendental body has helped me in my daily life. I live in a remote rural area where it is very difficult to get to the market. We have a machine used for grinding soybeans to make tofu.
One day, while her husband was gone to visit his hometown, Vân started the tofu-making machine to grind soybeans.
I started the machine to grind soybeans to make tofu, but I inattentively let the machine run dry of diesel oil. When I filled the machine with diesel oil, it couldn’t start. So, I asked my neighbor to come over to help fix it. Normally, when diesel oil is poured into the machine, one must let the wind out for the machine to start. But for this machine, you don’t need to do that. But my neighbor did not know. He opened the machine, the screws fell off, and he did not know how to put them back. He kept trying, but couldn’t fix it.
I also asked many people, but no one could fix it. Finally, I gave up. The next morning, as usual, I woke up at 3 am to meditate. While meditating, I thought of the damaged machine and asked Master to help to repair it for me. After praying, I thought: “Master is also a woman, isn’t it too unreasonable to ask Master to fix my machine? Master is busy with so many affairs, why do I ask Master to fix my machine?”
Vân then felt regretful about what she thought was a mundane request, and repented. At that moment, Master’s transcendental form appeared to her as if she were really physically present at her home.
Master appeared in a white Aulacese (Vietnamese) bà ba outfit with short hair. Master walked into my house. Master beckoned me to come. On the scene, there were a machine, screws, keys. Master instructed that I must open that, there was a marble and a spring inside. Master told me to switch them. I did as Master told me, fixing screws and tightening them. Then, I started the machine. It ran. While the machine was running, I held the crank in my hand and I just cried. I did not know what to say to thank Master.
When I was crying, my aged mother walked out and asked, “Why do you repair the machine at this time?” How come you don’t let everyone sleep, but stand there and cry?” I pointed at the machine and said, “Mom, Master taught me to fix it.” At that time, my mother and I did not know what to say, we just cried. In the morning, my neighbors heard my machine running. They thought my husband had come back and fixed the machine. They came and asked, “Your husband returned home and fixed it already?” I said, “No, he isn’t home yet.” They asked, “Who repaired your machine?” I said, “My Master fixed it for me.”
While Supreme Master Ching Hai was a long distance away in another country and continent at the time, her transcendental form had paid a visit to our Association member’s home, bringing the perfect knowledge needed to fix the machine. During a 1993 lecture in Indonesia, Supreme Master Ching Hai explained the incredible phenomenon of the Master’s transcendental, or Light manifestation, bodies.
The outer Master is found only at one place, is limited, and has only one body. The inner Master has innumerable manifestation bodies and is omnipresent. This is the difference. This external Master speaks only five or six languages, but the inner Master speaks all languages. The ultimate way of saving the most people is to practice the Quan Yin Method.
You will have innumerable manifestation bodies, thousands of hands and thousands of eyes, just like the Quan Yin Bodhisattva. Then, we can really save people. We won't incur any karma because we save people without saving. We do without doing. We are not doing with our own person, but with the Almighty Power of the universe.
Next, our South Korean Association member by the name of Soo-mi also witnessed Supreme Master Ching Hai’s transcendental body – multiple times – among other astonishing experiences.
When I got initiated I had a chance to participate in a 3-day retreat right after initiation. We were meditating when Master came into the hall packed with disciples. There was no free space that I, this small woman, had to sit on the far back corner. Master was at the front and I was far from the stage. Since I wanted to see Master closely from afar, I did like this repeatedly, and Master suddenly on the stage did like this and her eyes met mine and a light from her eye directly came to me like a laser beam. Our eyes met like this and the golden light was aimed and launched at me like a laser.
When the retreat was over we had a dinner party. It was Supreme Master Ching Hai Day, and Master received an award and sang songs. When Master was singing “Go! Go! Go!,” initiates came out and began dancing and dancing, but I did not intend to go join in. But I was carried along by initiates to join in. There were too many initiates in front, and we were in the back. And the stage was high, up to about here. Master sang “Ocean of Love” and then “Go! Go! Go!.” She approached me and was looking at me, one-on-one, while singing.
You will then realize I am everything that you've ever desired I am everything that you've ever desired As Supreme Master Ching Hai was singing her original songs at the audience’s sincere requests, Soo-mi soon realized that the Master who was approaching her was not the physical Master.
Master’s real body was over there. It was her transcendental body that had come to me, and told me, “The one you searched for so much is me. Now you have come to my ocean of love. Today, enjoy yourself here, showered with my love.” I then realized why I had searched for a Master since I was six years old. Upon knowing that, the tears just came.
My surroundings were black, and only Master was looking at me one-on-one. Her transcendental body was looking at me and continued this inner communication with me until the song was over. So later, Master ended the song, and initiates told me, “Wake up, wake up,” and to clean your tears and nose running. And then, my retreat was over in happiness.
Soo-mi recalls an experience at the time of her initiation into the Quan Yin Method in 1994.
When I came for initiation in 1994, we came to the airport to greet Master. At that moment, I thought Master was already going away like that, and as I was thinking this, without me knowing it, I said, “Mommy, Mommy!” twice. Master was gone away about 10 meters. She stepped away quickly, but suddenly, she turned back. Turning back, she came straight toward me. I was short and covered with many sisters in front of me, so I could not be seen. But Master stood right in front of me and gave her hand to me. I was so happy, so I grasped her hand. She made eye contact with me. And she smiled at me.
About 10 years later, during an international gathering, Soo-mi had a chance to speak with Supreme Master Ching Hai. Master said, “Ten years ago, you also gave me a difficult time, calling me, “Mommy, Mommy,” and did not let me go.” She said that you may not know, but I have raised you guys up, so you can solve issues by yourself. Upon hearing her say that, I was so stunned. I thought, Oh Master, you still remember me? Oh, you consider each disciple as a very precious kid. After the retreat, I came to the airport by a tour bus. Master’s transcendental form whispered in my ear that she loves me so much. I was crying and crying so much on the tour bus. I managed to stop crying later, and boarded the airplane. On the airplane, [her transcendental form] came all the way there, too. She came to me and said, “I love you. I love you so much.” “I love you more than my life.”
I am the Ocean of Love Come to Me I am the River of Life Bathe in Me I am more to you than the sunshine I am above space and time! Rest in My bosom Then you'll know freedom Rest in My loving arms Then you'll be far from harm
We are amazed and grateful to Supreme Master Ching Hai, whose loving presence comes to the aid and comfort of countless beings. We also thank our Association members for sharing their stories that inspire greater faith in the infinite Divine.
Gracious viewers, thank you for your company today. Join us every Sunday for “Miracles on the Path” on A Journey through Aesthetic Realms. Now, please stay tuned to Supreme Master Television for Our Noble Lineage, next after Noteworthy News. Wishing you Heaven’s abundant blessings.
Next Sunday: Our Aulacese (Vietnamese) Association member suddenly finds herself choking with no one there to help her. At that time, I suddenly remembered Master and I called: “O Master! Help me! I’m dying!” That was all I could do, then I lay there with eyes closed, waiting for death.
Our Chilean Association member’s son suffers deadly stab wounds, but his x-rays show another story. When the doctor saw [my son’s] x-ray, he was absolutely shocked, he could not understand how he was alive, and at that moment he said directly to him that it was a miracle.
Please join us on A Journey through Aesthetic Realms, Sunday, October 23, for the next “Miracles on the Path.” Please join us on A Journey through Aesthetic Realms, today for the next “Miracles on the Path.”
So now, suppose we have found the passageway back to the Kingdom of God, what will happen? It's something that will change our life for much more the better because the connection with God which has been severed before, now reconnected.
It's just like the Bible mentions that, Seek you first the Kingdom of God and all the things shall be added onto you.
And there is nothing you want that Hes will not give you. Hes will take care of the minute detail of your life including waking you up when you are late. Really!
Every day miracles happen to our lives once we reconnect ourselves with God, and all we have to do is just sit there and try to listen to what Hes says. That's all we do.

Here is the audio transcript for this video:
Welcome to MyBinding comparison videos. Today's topic is choosing the right rotary trimmer for your cutting needs. There are many rotary trimmers out there on the market to choose from. Here are four ideas to consider in your selection process.
You definitely want to pay attention to the trimmer's cutting length. In the interest of not spending as much money, people will often choose for a smaller trimmer and then later on, with larger projects, really regret that fact. This Swingline SmartCut Commericial 24 is 24 inches long and is going to be able to cut most every length that you'll need. And this Premier PerfiCut 12 is only 12 inches long. Most rotary trimmers are built to handle the standard 8.5 by 11 inch papers. However, if you need larger, you're going to have to take that into consideration.
Cutting capacity is just as important to consider. Cut capacity can vary greatly from a couple of sheets up to 15 and even 30 sheets of 20lb paper. Generally speaking, the lighter weight or more portable models can cut a lot less. And larger, more expensive, and all-metal construction type trimmers tend to be able to process many more sheets at one time. This trimmer in the Dahle 500 series is one of those. For higher cutting capacity trimmers, look for things like "professional" and "commercial".
The third area to consider is construction. How well is the paper trimmer built? Generally that will be reflected in the price. However, if you have a lot of work to do and you need your trimmer to last a long time, the investment is worth it. Dahle trimmers as well as Fellowes, seen here the Atom model, tend to make great ones. Swingline probably has the largest range of construction and durability.
And finally, there's multi-function. Generally speaking, the less it can do, the better it can do it. However, there are a couple of really great all-in-one or multipurpose trimmers. The strength of the Premier PerfiCut is that with one button you can make a slice or perforated lines, it's just that simple. The Swingline Dial-a-Blade Plus is a great little multipurpose trimmer and quite durable, too. Simply by twisting a dial on the knob, hence Dial-a-Blade, you can go from a wavy cut to a crease, a straight normal cut, and also a perforated line. All of that done well with just one trimmer. And some trimmers go really overboard on measuring tools and fences for help with special and customizable projects.
So in your shopping, keep in mind cutting length, capacity, durability, and multifunction. Give us a call or keep clicking around, we're here to help you find the right rotary trimmer for your needs. For other comparisons, demos, reviews, and how tos, check out MyBinding****.

*******SupremeMasterTV**** – Ora Dogs House: A Model of Love in Israel (In Hebrew). Episode: 1883, Air Date: 10 November 2011.
Today’s Animal World: Our Co-Inhabitants will be presented in Hebrew and English, with subtitles in Arabic, Aulacese (Vietnamese), Chinese, English, French, German, Indonesian, Hebrew, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Malay, Mongolian, Persian, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish and Thai.
Welcome, kindhearted viewers, to this edition of Animal World: Our Co-Inhabitants featuring Ora’s Dogs-A Place Of Love in Or-Yehuda, Israel, founded by Ms. Ora Kebabgian.
What led Ms. Kebabgian to establish her canine shelter?
It just occurred by itself. When I retired, I found a dog here, a dog there. So I met this woman who used to save dogs. We met several times at the vet’s office, and this was my destiny and the dogs’. Then, just like that, each time we met, she said, “Wow, Ora, you must help me out. I have no place for this dog.” I took one dog from her, later I took another. Well, suddenly, without noticing it at all, I saw that I had grown. I made kennels and started to get dogs out of quarantine, and so on. I don’t regret it because I’m all alone and they are guarding the place.
And how many dogs are now happily living at Ora’s Dogs-A Place Of Love ?
Today I have 80 dogs.
Eighty dogs and you work by yourself?
I am working alone. There are some volunteer women, but they generally come only on Fridays.
Ms. Kebabgian regularly undergoes radiation therapy sessions for a health condition, a procedure which make her very tired. Despite her low energy levels following the treatments, she continues on to wholeheartedly serve the wonderful canine residents.
In the morning, I get up, but it is hard, because I feel the fatigue after the radiotherapy. But I get over it.
Amazing, good for you. You are a very brave person.
What sorts of dogs come to live at Ora’s Dogs-A Place Of Love ?
I take in abandoned dogs, dogs about to be euthanized, and try to save them, rehabilitate them and place them in homes with people who adopt.
To find them a warm home with a loving family.
Yes, I am trying to.
This highway is quite close to the airport, and there are many dogs just being abandoned by citizens on their way to travel.
Right, right. There are many here. In the summer in particular, I get up in the morning and see a new dog chained to my gate. Yes.
Do some people leave their dogs chained to your gate and just leave?
Yes, to my gate. Really, if I go to the supermarket, and come back I just see a dog at the gate.
Now let’s meet some of the playful canine residents of Ora’s Dogs-A Place Of Love !
Every dog has a name and every dog has a story. This dog… Tyler, come here. Tyler, come and get it, Tyler. Tyler was hit by a car.
An accident, yes. I took him to Let the Animals Live (NGO). From Let the Animals Live, they sent me to some vets, and (the vets) wanted to amputate his leg. I did not agree to that.
Then I took him, transferred him at my cost, the treatments were also at my cost. It cost me NIS2,000 (US$550). It was very difficult. I did it in installments, but he now has four legs.
Kouchena the dog arrived from the town of Or Yehuda (Israel).
I took her and she has been with us seven years and is having a good life here. She is the most loved one here, Koucha!
This one I just found; They (the caregiver) just ditched him. He was trying to make friends with every cyclist passing by. That is what I saw and I just jumped over, because if you leave a dog there, in no time a car will pass by on this highway and hit him.
Besides rescuing them herself, Ms. Kebabgian also gets dogs from people who contact Ora’s Dogs-A Place Of Love for assistance.
People are always calling; I also receive dogs from the city of Ashkelon (Israel).
From the city of Beersheba (Israel). I receive a lot. I also have puppies. They arrived, a mother with six puppies. I raised them and gave them away. If everyone would adopt a dog, and everyone would neuter them, we wouldn’t have them in such huge numbers. I had a huge Saint Bernard, until someone fortunately, even though the dog was quite old, 10 years old, a person from the city of Eilat (Israel) who had a fondness for large dogs (took him). It was my good fortune, he came all the way from Eilat to adopt him. He was an elderly man, some 80 years old.
Ifat is one of the compassionate Ora’s Dogs-A Place Of Love volunteers who helps Ora Kebabgian tremendously.
First I saw an advertisement on the Internet that Ora needed people to volunteer and come to help, and I first came a year ago and saw the place, and loved it. And it’s a great place because there are lots of dogs, they can run and are not in small cages. Ora’s a nice person. She needs a lot of help because she is alone and so I love to come here. I’m also a student. I’m really working hard and study hard all week but I find time at the end of the weekend to come and to help.
It’s not like other places that take dogs and give them a place to live until they find a home, it’s like a home.
And what does Ifat normally do to help when she comes to Ora’s Dogs-A Place Of Love ?
First of all, I clean the place. So first we go and clean all the places and the big cages and then I go to the place of the pets and clean there and put water and food. And if there is a dog that is ill that needs to go to the vet, I take him; we get help and then we ensure that everything is okay, all the dogs are okay.
The dogs are just charming, they’re all so friendly, pleasant, all living together.
Yes, they are. When a new dog comes in, he is placed in the kennel, but not for long… over time I start getting him out, and then they get used to it and accepted. They are well cared for… there is a vet whom we summon monthly, and he checks on each dog.
When dogs are cared for, they give immense love in return.
Really…I feel it, when I go away and come back, wow, how they jump in joy and happiness. They really return a lot of love. They are really grateful for being saved. Dogs particularly bring happiness to a home. I see it in many homes. It is the children, even sick people, when they caress them, it gives them… How shall I put it… I don’t know how to explain it… but it relaxes them.
A dog does not have many demands; just some food and he is really really grateful. Every time that I come here and see the dogs, it’s good for me. It’s not only for the dogs; it’s time for me to enjoy being with them. They are good, they are great just to be with. So they have lots of love to give, so they are sweet.
With all her attention and love in providing the dogs with food and veterinary treatment, Ora Kebabgian still wishes she could do more for the canines at Ora’s Dogs-A Place Of Love , like building a more comfortable home for them.
With the food and the treatments… I never get to make their sheds. Because it is very expensive…it always remains last (on my list). Every year – next year I’ll have the money, next year I’ll have the money, but I don’t get anywhere. For saving dogs, I have a vet on call. I have accrued a bill of NIS19,000 (US$5,200) from saving dogs. I have now reduced the debt to NIS15,000 (US$4,100), but it is still very, very difficult to settle the debt.
Over time I hope, bit by bit. I need to build roofs for the kennels. And a bit more space, so they have a warm place; however, it takes a lot of money. I really need to have a roof for the dogs. That’s what I need.
After learning that Ms. Ora Kebabgian has been a vegetarian for more than 20 years, we asked her why she decided to adopt this benevolent lifestyle.
When I was a child, you ate what the parents cooked. However, over time, when I started loving animals, I just couldn’t bear the thought that a chicken has to be slaughtered and suffer, or some other animal is slaughtered and eaten. I can’t do that ever in my life.
You don’t eat eggs either, do you?
Not eggs, not meat, not fish, nothing. When you take the meat and you have to cut it, then each time it tells you again that it is a living soul. Once, when we were children and (meat was) prepared for us, we did not know what it was. However, when you just see it, you see this blood… it is really disgusting.
I don’t mind not eating meat at all.
Ms. Ora Kebabgian, Ifat and the other volunteers at Ora’s Dogs-A Place Of Love, we deeply thank you for your loving, dedicated efforts to uplift the lives of vulnerable dogs in Israel. May Ora’s Dogs-A Place Of Love remain a splendid, safe sanctuary for canines without homes and a model for selfless devotion in the future.
Thank you, noble viewers, for watching today’s Animal World: Our Co-Inhabitants. May our world quickly re-discover the love that is so often missed on the speedy highways of life.

Most say romantic relationships between a teacher and a student are no-nos. But what happens when both are legal adults? Some experts are throwing a fuss after a Northern California teacher dropped everything to pursue his relationship with a student. But wait till you hear their ages, here’s KPIX....
“She is former student and she’s just 18-years old. That’s 41-year-old James Hooker who’s moving in with the girl who is sitting next to him.”
Hooker left his wife and children to move into an apartment with Jordan Powers. The pair first met when she was a freshman — but the couple says they did not become romantic until after she turned 18. So, how is this a case? Legal commentator Nancy Grace gives a fired up explanation on GMA...
“Let me tell you something, when a grown man is texting a girl at 6 a.m. in the morning, you’ve got a problem.”
“But that’s not going to be enough to carry it at trial. What they’ve gotta do is get the content of those text messages.”
“Something that proves actual sex.”
Jordan’s mother is speaking out. She says she discovered 8,000 text messages, as well as late-night phone calls and email exchanges that she says all took place while Jordan was a minor. Meanwhile — the Modesto Bee says even if there isn’t a legal issue — there’s this...
“A teacher's romantic relationship with a student, even one who is legally an adult, raises thorny issues of morality, accountability and ethics. Duty vs. desire. Trust vs. freedom. High schools everywhere grapple with issues of budding sexuality and a legal age that often arrives before adult reasoning kicks in.”
A writer for Jezebel says if Hooker is found of any wrongdoing — he could be in for harsh punishment...
“California has one of the broadest Statutes of Limitations and strictest statutory rape laws in the country, meaning if … Hooker was indeed sexually involved with Jordan prior to her 18th birthday, he would be hard-pressed to escape jail time no matter how much time has passed since the transgression occurred.”
Both Hooker and Powers told ABC — they don’t regret anything. In that interview — Powers called the former teacher — her best friend. No charges have been filed against Hooker — but Modesto police are investigating.

BY ALYSSA CARTEE
A federal judge is under fire after hitting the forward button. U.S. District Chief Judge Richard Cebull, who presides over the 9th district in Montana, admitted yesterday to forwarding a racist email about the President.
The email begins with Cebull saying he doesn’t normally forward emails but this one-quote “touched his heart.” Politico describes the rest of the email.
“The text continues on to this joke: ‘A little boy said to his mother; ‘Mommy, how come I’m black and you’re white?’ His mother replied, ‘Don’t even go there Barack! From what I can remember about that party, you’re lucky you don’t bark!’’“
The email eventually made its way to a local newspaper. Cebull said he was surprised it was forwarded with his name still on it. He admitted sending the email, saying he regrets its racial undertones, but that his problems with the President are purely political. WFLD reports.
“Cebull admits the email is racist, but says he’s not racist. He apologized to anyone offended by it.”
But a blogger for MSNBC says that doesn’t cut it.
“That's not an uncommon line, but it's also not a real apology. Genuine regret in a situation like this means apologizing for sending racist garbage, not apologizing to those who happen to be offended by racist garbage.”
And liberal news blog Think Progress still isn’t buying it saying the “purely political” defense is just as bad.
“At best, Cebull has admitted that he despises President Obama so much that he lacks the ability to exercise basic judgment when confronted with an opportunity to insult the president. This is hardly a suitable trait in a man whose sole job duty is to exercise judgment.”
But The Great Falls Tribune reports Cebull is pointing to his record in court as his defense.
“Cebull said he does not consider himself prejudice against people of other races or ethnic backgrounds, and that his actions in his courtroom have demonstrated that.”
President George W. Bush appointed Cebull as U.S. District Judge in 2001.

What is an EPS Foam machine, EPS foam making machine, or an EPS foam Block Machine?
EPS is short for Expanded Polystyrene, and is made with an injection process in block form or specialty 3D shame molding like packaging, and coolers. The machines mentioned here are specially used to make large foam blocks, some as long as 24 feet.
This is how these machines make the blocks. Basically, you take a polystyrene resin raw material and combine it with some heat and steam to expand the bead to a certain point. Then you let the expanded beads sit overnight to release the blowing agent used in the bead that makes it expand. The next day you take the beads and put it into the EPS foam molding machine and combine them with heat, steam and pressure. The beads inside the mold then expand and fuse into one another to make a solid block. Because of the steam used in the block, most manufacturers will allow the blocks to sit and dry/cure for up to two weeks. Some manufacturers have dry rooms where they put the blocks to dry. Because the dry rooms have high temperatures the blocks can dry much faster and be used 1 or 2 days. Other thing that most people don’t realize is that the blocks that come out of the molds are sometimes 24 feet log so they have to placed vertical. If you don’t put the blocks vertical then they will bow and your will able to use less of the block.
