Retire and Watch

by | Oct 4, 2011 | Archives

The crazier the world… the more will retire from the old and watch for the new to emerge.

A reader sent this note last week. Gary,  Here’s a quote to add to your library:  “The order of the present is the disorder of the future.” Saint Juste

How true.  The order that Western capitalistic Democratic societies have lived with for the past 75  years are now all suspect.

The cover of last week’s Economist says it all… be afraid.

However this fear belongs only in the unreal world.

Excerpts from the Economist’s cover article outline the global economic problems.   IN DARK days, people naturally seek glimmers of hope. So it was that financial markets, long battered by the ever-worsening euro crisis, rallied early this week amid speculation that Europe’s leaders had been bullied by the rest of the world into at last putting together a “big plan” to save the single currency. Investors ventured out from safe-haven bonds into riskier assets. Stock prices jumped: those of embattled French banks soared by almost 20% in just two days.

But those hopes are likely to fade, for three reasons. First, for all the breathless headlines from the IMF/World Bank meetings in Washington, DC, Europe’s leaders are a long way from a deal on how to save the euro.

A slew of recent indicators suggests the euro area is slipping into recession, as Germany’s exports slow, the fiscal screws tighten, confidence slumps and the banks’ travails imply tighter credit. Even if the euro-zone crisis were to be solved tomorrow, the region’s GDP would probably shrink over the coming months.

America’s economy is still limping along, though the summer slump in share prices and consumer confidence suggest future spending will weaken further. The Federal Reserve is trying new ways of support, somewhat half-heartedly. Whatever it does, America is currently on course for the most stringent fiscal tightening of any big economy in 2012, as temporary tax cuts and unemployment insurance expire at the end of this year.

In the aftermath of the Lehman crisis, policymakers broadly did the right thing. The result was not a rapid return to prosperity in the West, but after such a big balance-sheet recession that was never going to happen. Now, more often than not, policymakers seem to be getting it wrong. Their mistakes vary, but two sorts stand out. One is an overwhelming emphasis on short-term fiscal austerity over growth.

The second failure is one of honesty. Too many rich-world politicians have failed to tell voters the scale of the problem. In Germany, where the jobless rate is lower than in 2008, people tend to think the crisis is about lazy Greeks and Italians. Mrs Merkel needs to explain clearly that it also includes Germany’s own banks—and that Germany faces a choice between a costly solution and a ruinous one. In America the Republicans are guilty of outrageous obstructionism and misleading simplification, while Mr Obama has favoured class warfare over fiscal leadership. At a time of enormous problems, the politicians seem Lilliputian. That’s the real reason to be afraid.

In short there is nowhere to invest now that does not have risk.  Stocks, bonds, commodities, gold silver, currencies have all shown themselves to be volatile. Yet  those who can look beyond these social economic agreements we have come to rely on at a deeper reality retire from this unreal world and watch the power of reality.

On the subject of retire and watch.   I am about to have a birthday… my 65th.  Time to retire and take the golden watch?

Not likely in part because of these…

Color and sound are frequency and the sights and sounds of our lives create subtle energies of great overall importance.

Merri and I have learned to pay attention to these colors.  For example we often

dress alike.  Here we are heading to our seminar hall.

All dressed up for Saturday shopping.  When people dress alike and are surrounded in the same subtle energy they think alike… feel the same and act in better harmony and are more effective working together and more comfortable living together.

Merri and I have worked with some of the world’s greatest investment managers, economists and business leaders.  Yet we have also lived, studied and worked with quantum physicists, scientists, holistic healers, shamans, vaidyas, Vedic astrologers and ministers because they look at, practice and teach deeper wisdom and reality.

They have taught us that the subtle frequencies of color are one component of good health.  Even the Western medical industry is learning to use color in their healing.  The website healthcarefineart.com says in an article entitled  “Health Care Fine Art: Picking Color for HealthCare Interiors”:  Picking the best color for healthcare interiors isn’t easy anymore. Back in the 1950’s, everyone thought they knew the answer; pistachio green! A sterile scrub color. Now we live in a time when we want these healing environments designed to reflect what emerging science and evidence-based design say reduces stress and facilitates healing.

Regarding color, some scientists say that there is no convincing evidence about how it affects us physically and emotionally while other researchers say that is does – making for a perplexing subject at best. Leading HealthCare Designer Tara Hill offers her opinion:

The bottom line for color in Healthcare is :

  • There IS some sort of healing component in color as with anything that stimulates the senses.
  • Science shows that nature has a huge healing component. Good luck reflecting it without the representation of color.
  • Through stimulating environments – those weighted in representations of nature and color – patients, family, and staff report feel “normalized” and researchers indicate their healing rates are dramatically increased.
  • We have to be careful not to oversell color’s healing potential, but it seems illogical to say color is not part of the interior “system” of elements that, when all brought together appropriately, make for a therapeutic environment.

Another site on the power of workplaces… workplacefl.com says in the article “Influences of color in health care”:  A second major trend is the emergence of new Mind/Body/ Health Connections. Listed by futurists as among the most significant trends of the new millennium, it is strongly validated in lifestyle marketing and consumer industries. These focus areas are lending even more credibility to methods for creating healthy environments, which has always been seen as important in healthcare solutions.

Designers seek to create products and spaces that are more inviting, have uplifting and energetic atmospheres, more universal appeal, versatility, and longevity. Their search to provide a spatial balance to the chaos and stress of everyday life helps to closely align color palettes from home, office, healthcare, and hospitality alike, with “calm and comforting” as its universal appeal.

An emerging field of study, psycho-neuro-immunology (PNI), is both an art and science being embraced by pioneering interior designers to enhance well-being, creativity, and performance. Strongly supported by notable advocates such as Millicent Gappell, FIFDA, the PNI approach combines color, art, interior design, music, and science to produce wellness-enhancing environments. This new scientific method brings more attention to creating wholesome and healthy environments and the holistic approach of healing through appropriate balance of light, color, and space.

One of the common themes we have learned is to be in tune with subtle energy which can make us we smarter… to have better health and to have greater energy.   These are the assets that help us survive and prosper in a faster changing world.

Learn Spanish in Three Days

Why You Can Learn Spanish in Three Days

You can learn Spanish in a day, or a week, month or any time frame that works for you.

I’m Gary Scott.  Over fifty years ago I started a business that has helped hundreds of thousands of subscribers learn about investing in Hong Kong (1960s and 1970s), Switzerland, London, Isle of Man (1970s and 1980s) and across Europe. My wife Merri and I took thousands on investing tours to these countries.

In the 1990s we began taking investors to Panama, Mexico, the Dominican Republic and Ecuador.  That’s when we realized an incredible need for an easy, super fast way to learn Spanish.  Our delegates were business people with hard schedules and tight deadlines.  They did not have months, or even weeks to learn a second language.

Plus, even though these delegates were successful international business people, most did not have degrees in grammar.  When it came to sentence structure, punctuation rules, parts of speech, morphology and especially derivation of verbs, they were at a loss. They wanted good basic ways to communicate in Spanish that worked and sounded eloquent, right now, without having to become educated in grammar.

Fortunately there is a scientific method of learning (called Super Learning) that was created and refined by a Soviet educational master, Georgi Lozanov.   Lozanov transformed the entire Soviet Union’s educational system to such a degree that this third world nation beat the USA into space.

My wife Merri was lucky to be one of a handful of students outside the Soviet Union who were taught this system by Lozanov himself in the early 1970s.  She practiced this unique and remarkable form of education for decades so we used it to create a Super Spanish course that has helped thousands of subscribers learn Spanish in three days and less.

This course is now available online.

Does it sound impossible to learn Spanish in three days?  Yes, it is impossible when you try to learn Spanish in the old, traditional way, but the scientific Super Learning method of learning… proven and described in numerous best selling books creates educational jumps by making education natural, easy and fun.   This course works because it is education without stress!

How The Course Works

The first tactic is to use Baroque music to create Relaxed Concentration in the learning process.  At least three best selling books, “Superlearning”, the “Mozart Effect” and “Superlearning 2000” have revealed insights about how to learn and think more powerfully based on systems drawn from the Soviet educational master, Dr. Georgi Lozanov.

You gain six valuable ONLINE Baroque Relaxed Concentration Sessions in the online course that is delivered via the internet.

The second tactic uses 17 unique lessons to provide Spanish fluency in a short time.   Let me prove to you how this tactic works by teaching you hundreds of Spanish words in less than 30 seconds.

Here is the proof.

“Most words in English that end in ION are almost identical, just pronounced differently. 

For example action is accion.

Education-educacion.

Manipulation- manipulacion, etc.”

There you have it.  How long did it take you to read these four sentences? 

Ask yourself.  “How many words do you know that end in ION”.

You now know all these Spanish words that you will never forget.

How long would it have taken you to memorize all those words?  How soon would you have forgotten them?

The next lesson teaches how to pronounce each of the nouns.

The third lesson teaches almost as many verbs, almost as quickly.

The fourth lesson shows how to avoid conjugating verbs by sticking with the infinitive (far easier than it sounds).  This simple lesson leaves a person sounding like a Spanish professor without ever conjugating a verb.

Lesson five shows how to sound infinitely polite and yet get almost anything desired in Spanish.

Lesson six gives valuable connectors and the seventh lesson triples the Spanish capacity with three words for “yesterday,” “now” and “tomorrow”.

In an incredibly short time you feel comfortable speaking Spanish.

Plus the system is Impro-Dynamic.  This means your Spanish keeps getting better even though you do not seem to be studying… practicing… or speaking Spanish.

I was amazed by this as I traveled back and forth from the USA to Ecuador.  The longer I was away from Ecuador… the better my Spanish became.  My second language was automatically improving.  The self improving feature comes because you learn to create Spanish sentences rather than remember them.

The portion of the brain that creates is more powerful than the portion that recalls.  When your mind creates something… it owns it!  You do not have to remember .

During the course you learn 4005 Spanish words that you already know.   This eliminates the need to memorize 99% of Spanish words.

You then learn how to create Spanish sentences from these words.

Throughout the course you learn how to pronounce the sentences you create.

When the course ends… the mind keeps working… and creating… so next time you begin to speak Spanish you’ll be surprised .  You improve even though you have not actively worked on your lingual skill.

Due to the difficulty of getting groups together to learn this valuable technique, we created an online program for subscribers to use the Super Spanish course at home.   The normal three day in person course fee is $499 ($749 for a couple).

The ONLINE course is available at the highly reduced price of $149, but in this special offer we are knocking another $70 from the price so you can start now for only $79.

Here are some testimonials from the course.

Here are a few quotes from delegates of the course.

One delegate from St. Louis wrote:  Hi Gary,  Just ended forty-five years in dentistry last week, and I’m on to a new career.  What is my new career?  Still formulating, but the eye -opening,mind expanding Super-Spanish course last weekend in St. Louis surely shows me the opportunity exists to expand my horizons.

Besides having a lot of nice people to learn our new language; the methods Merri and you developed proved to be just what you said they would be.  We all and I in particular relaxed our way to new learning.  I feel so very comfortable with the basis of my new language skills that I know I will be spitting out great Spanish sentences by the time I reach Ecuador in October.  Last year I spent six weeks in Ecuador and now I plan on conversing with the people.

Today’s excerpt of your newsletter really hit home. You do what you say you will. There are no surprises or hidden sales tricks. The only tricks are beneficial to our learning.  Thank you for a wonderful experience that I was quite unable to grasp how you would pull it off.  You did, however, and I look forward to other courses that you offer, and I have absolutely no doubt they also will work beneficially.  Best regards, Denis Molloy.

Another wrote about the Super Spanish course:   Buenos Dias, here is a testimonial for Super Thinking-Super Spanish.  Please feel free to use all or part in promotions for the course.  In addition, you may give my email address to any prospect “on the fence” about enrolling.  Yesterday, in Cotacachi, Ecuador, I finished Super Spanish.  I had high expectations for the course and they were exceeded.

After three days, I can speak Spanish in complete sentences. In simple conversations, such as buying groceries or ordering a meal, I can make myself understood. I think that’s incredible!

Although I am far from the competence level of a native speaker, I feel I’ve taken a giant step forward in learning Spanish so that I can experience the people and culture of Ecuador.  The foregoing benefits would have more than justified the time and money I invested in Super Spanish.  And learning some Spanish was not the most important benefit I got from the course.

Prior to leaving the USA, I had felt for some time that the pace of life there was unhealthy for me (and for most people) and I did nothing about it.

I’ve thought about the pace issue during the course.  One of the key elements Merri Scott designed into Super Spanish is placing the student in the optimal state for learning.  In class, the past three days, I’ve been re-introduced to guided journeys and introduced to the calming effects of Baroque music (www.sundaybaroque.org).  What a blessing! I’m inclined to make one or both a daily part of my life.   Rob Christi.  Cotacachi, Ecuador

Another attendee from a course wrote:   “I took this incredible class a few weeks ago, and I would like to tell anyone that is interested, that it is an amazing three days of learning with lots of laughs included. You leave everyday wanting to learn more and are so excited to do so.

“Other Spanish classes and tutoring made us feel like it would take forever to get to the point where we could put it into practice, but this method gave us a more fluent use for everyday life almost immediately AND the confidence to use it.  It is a fantastic way to show people how much they know and give confidence to learn and use Spanish creating a momentum.

“They made learning Spanish easy and fun in a very relaxed, comfortable atmosphere.  I would definitely recommend this course.  Even if you know some Spanish, this helps make it easier because of the less stress that no verb conjugations gives you.  This gives you more confidence in yourself to try and speak it more.

“I liked how simply the course was organized and the positive attitude about learning.  Thank you so much for helping me to learn Spanish!” Nadine Taylor
