The solutions we, as individuals, need to prosper in complex times are simple things.
Some of the world’s greatest achievements have been made possible by really simple things.
At the entrance to the Edison Ford Winter Estates there is a cold cast aluminum sculpture of Thomas Edison. The statue shows Edison’s trademark cane in his right hand. A silver ball is in the inventor’s left hand, based on a story that reflects how Edison sharpened his ingenuity. The story has it that Edison would sit in a chair when he got sleepy, holding a ball bearing in his left hand and nap. When he moved into the “hypnagogic state,” between wakefulness and sleep, where thoughts become limitless, his hand would relax and the ball bearing would drop into a metal bucket he kept by his chair. This would waken Edison who would make a note of the ideas that had popped into his head while he was dreaming.
“If the story’s true,” the sculptor who created this statue, D.J. Wilkins, said “you can add biofeedback to the list of things Edison invented.”
Charles Lindbergh used a somewhat similar idea on his famous solo, transatlantic, 33-hour flight because he knew that staying awake was going to be one of his major challenges.
He tied a heavy, metal threaded nut tied to one finger with a piece of string. During the flight, while at cruise altitude, he held this makeshift alarm in his hand, palm down. When he started to fall asleep, his hand would relax, would drop the nut, pull on his finger and jolt him back into wakefulness.
That alarm was one of the most reliable devices on board his fabric-covered plane, with no front window, powered by a 1920’s technology,single engine, directed by a wet compass.
Comedian John Cleese when interviewed about his book “Creativity: A Short and Cheerful Guide”, shared an important reason why we need simple things to solve the complex changes we face in today’s world.
Cleese said: I define intelligence as the ability to know what’s important and what’s not. It’s a terrible, stupid time when everybody gets disproportionately upset about small things while there are monumental things going on.
I ask myself every day now… what simple things are blinding me to seeing the incredible opportunity that is ahead for those who adapt? What simple things can I do that will help me see the positive steps I can take for a bright future.
The simple Ritual of the Golden String can help you create positive routines that cope with modern complexity.
Time and space define our existence. That’s why the most powerful force for a fulfilling lifestyle, is being in the here and now and knowing when you are at the right time in the right place. How can we do this?
More importantly how can we know when it’s the right time and place?
We start by being more aware of where we are when… and aware of what’s happening.
When we are aware, we can control time and space. Awareness controls habits because habitual activity starts as an action without conscious thought.
We can become more aware of our time and our space with a piece of string.
I mean really… what can be simpler than a piece of string? But powerful?
The Ritual of the Golden String can help create a better lifestyle using simplicity in a complex world.
Here is a simple mental ritual that an Ecuador shaman taught Merri and me for raising this awareness.
Get a spool of gold colored thread. (Gold represents wealth, wisdom and prosperity.)
Measure a length of this thread equal to the distance from your belt loop to the thumb of your right hand when you arm is extended (or left if you are left handed).
Tie one end of the thread to thumb. Tie the other end of the thread to your belt loop.
Leave this for a day and count how many times you break the thread. Every time you break the thread, remember something you are grateful for.
This exercise helps us recover our awareness. Not breaking the thread all day long is the ideal… but this is not a contest. This ritual is a powerful reminder that loops you back to the quiet, efficient, simple wisdom that is uniquely YOU!
Use the ritual of the golden thread for a day, or just before or after work… or even an hour once a week. Simple, powerful rituals enhance your awareness and help you know when you are in the right time and right place.
Most of us lead or did lead hurried, high pressure, complex lives that shape our activity into brief time saving habits that dim our awareness.
Continual pressure and stress are not good for health in many ways. Simple habits, such as worrying about everything, are among the hardest to break. Simple solutions, such as the Ritual of the Golden String can restore our awareness, create better mental and emotional balance and most of all remind us to focus on our unique purpose to overcome our fears.
Become more independent and relaxed by becoming smarter.
A study of 10,000 British people studied the pure relationship between intelligence and happiness stability.
IQ can predict the emotional ups and downs of life. The research found that the lower the IQ, the more stress and higher the ups and downs in life satisfaction. The differences were not due to education, income, or jobs either, but simply IQ.

Inflate Your IQ.
When it comes to money… inflation is cheating.
That’s bad for you.
When it comes to intelligence… inflating is smart… fair… good for you and it’s good for the rest of the world.
Monetary inflation is a sneaky government and business trick.
What cost a dollar in 1965 can easily cost $15 now.
They promise you more.
They devalue the currency so you get more dollars that buy less. They can rip off your salary, your pension…raise insurance, almost everything.
And they make you work harder… longer… for less.
Whittle, whittle, whittle. Push, push, push. That’s what monetary inflation does to you.
Fight back… overcome the inflation trick. Inflate your IQ as you relax.
Gain more than IQ.
Be smarter… more energetic…. healthier… more relaxed.
That’s the way to get ahead!
Create more income opportunity. Reduce stress. Improve your health. Be naturally smarter… use Super Thinking.
You can improve your IQ in just weeks.
You might well ask… How is this possible?
Here’s how the scientists say it is possible.
A Wall Street Journal article entitled “Ways to Inflate Your IQ”(1) show how you can be smarter and actually add matter to your brain. The article says:
Many people think of IQ as a genetic trait, like brown eyes or short legs: You’re born with it and you’re stuck with it.
Now, a growing body of research is showing that a person’s IQ can rise—and even fall—over the years.
Scores can change gradually or quickly, after as little as a few weeks of cognitive training, research shows.
British students were given IQ tests and brain scans at ages 12 to 16 and again about four years later. 9% of the students showed a significant change of 15 points or more in IQ scores.
The study published in Nature said that on a scale where 90 to 110 is considered average, one student’s IQ rose 21 points to 128 from 107, lifting the student from the 68th percentile to the 97th compared with others the same age.
MRIs in this study showed changes in gray matter in areas corresponding to fluctuations in the kid’s skills.
There are practical steps people can take to see longer-term IQ changes. New tasks stimulate the brain most. Young adults given just one month of intense training in juggling, found an increase in the corresponding gray matter in the brain as early as seven days after the training began.
Fluctuations in IQ scores over time underscore the brain-boosting benefits of musical training and new experiences throughout a lifetime.
Music lessons are linked to higher IQ throughout life. Six years’ lessons lifted children’s IQ scores an average 7.5 points.
Improve the brain through music… without lessons.
Here’s the Super Thinking story…
The educational program Merri and I developed uses a form of brain wave integration that increases IQ.
Super Thinking uses frequency (in music and a number of other ways) to integrate brain waves so the process of absorbing, processing and recalling information is vastly accelerated. The music creates the three C’s: Calm, Clarity and Coherence.
This Super Thinking program is not a gimmick or trick… just advanced education.
Certain types of Baroque music are the base, and they make you smarter!
At least four best selling books, “Psychic Discoveries Behind the Iron Curtain”, “Superlearning”, the “Mozart Effect” and “Superlearning 2000″ showed how to learn and think more powerfully based on systems drawn from the Bulgarian educational master, Dr. Georgi Lozanov.
This Baroque music tactic alone is so powerful that Small Business Innovation Research… an official site of the US government granted over $100,000 for the specific purpose they said was: to provide a method to remove barriers which hinder or prevent the employment of blind persons. An innovative method, the Lozanov Learning System, is proposed to help train blind persons to become computer programmers and operators of automated equipment.
Merri was among just a few who learned this technique directly from Dr. Lozanov the time he visited the USA.
Our Super Thinking workshop enhanced this system with numerous other tactics.
We added slight alterations in nutrition that create a higher IQ. Altered nutritional tips in Super Thinking can make anyone 25% smarter!
Baroque Music and nutrition are just part of seven, easy to use, learning techniques that make you smarter.
Gain any skill, from computers to athletics to conversational languages…in less time…two-to-five times faster.
Here’s a huge bonus. Super Thinking also relieves stress. Super Thinking is fun.
You can use a Super Thinking focus in everything: health… earning… education… investing.
Super Thinking works on the learner first…the data second. This system “grows the learner” rather than the information.
If you have 4.5 inches of information flowing through a 4 inch learning pipe, the solution is not to add another inch of information. The answer is create a six inch IQ pipe!
Share our years of experience.
For nearly 50 years, Merri and I have conducted hundreds of courses and tours for tens of thousands, in dozens of countries (even behind the Iron Curtain). Our Super Thinking Workshop has been one of the most profound. Now the workshop is even better online because it condenses Super Thinking so you can increase your IQ, at home… right away.
The workshop shows how these mind expanding tactics can be applied to starting and running a business for extra income, to forex trading and investing. Athletes of all types… golfing being one common sport benefit. Our Super Thinking plan goes far beyond Lozanov and allows you to rapidly get smarter in every part of your life.
For example, real estate broker, Suzy Kurinsky took the workshop to help her learn Spanish.
She wrote: “You are the BEST!!! Your Seminar was fantastic! I am so excited. I had procrastinated fulfilling my continuing education for my Broker’s License and then just before my surgeries, I realized by expiration date isn’t Nov. 12th – it is Sept 12th. Prior to taking your course I had only completed 3 units of the required 45 units. I thought I would take your course and then complete my remaining 42 units over the next 2 weeks. However, I took one class exam on Saturday night, August 27th. I didn’t even take the cellophane off the required Course manuals until after I saw the two of you today less than 5 hours ago! I used your techniques and completed 39 units of continuing education today. I have now completed all 45 units. All of my test scores were in the 90.6-96% range. My course exam information is listed below. I just wanted to let you know how valuable your course was to me. Thanks again!”
Super thinking can improve almost anything you do… faster, better, more fun and with less stress.
Another attendee to the Super Thinking Workshop sent this note.
Thank you for the wonderful workshop on Super Learning + Spanish! I really enjoyed the workshop and getting to know you. I can see several ways to apply what I learned in the classes I teach.
Since I returned home, I have purchased some of the CDs of Baroque music and thought about which specific pieces will work best in different parts of my classes. I am also reading Perfect Health by Deepak Chopra. I found your discussion of this book to be very helpful in showing how to balance one’s life. I have adjusted my daily schedule, and I can already notice a difference in my productivity.
Super Thinking can help improve your health. Super Thinking can make you rich and add richness to your life.
However the time, travel expense and workshop cost (delegates have paid up to $999) have prohibited many from getting this benefit.
That’s why we have created the workshop in electronic form. Get Super Thinking online for less than fifty bucks.
Relax in the Secret Rose Garden.
The workshop is divided into two parts. Part one is the application… the sessions that tell you exactly what to do, what music to use and even includes two recorded sessions based around a secret rose garden that you can use. We have kept this portion short and simple so you can easily start immediately.
Part two is a longer portion on theory.
Part one is enough.
Super Thinking is like jogging… giving results if you simply do it!
You do not have to know why Super Thinking works to increase your IQ. But Part Two explains why you are getting the good results from Part One, if you want to know.
You might ask…”Will it work for me”?
The Super Thinking Workshop will help increase your IQ.
I guarantee it. Order the Super Thinking Workshop. Use it for two months. If you are not totally satisfied… in any way, during that time, simply let me know and I’ll send a full refund… immediately… no questions asked.
Another Super Thinking workshop attendee wrote: Listening to the two of you during our time together has suddenly got me to thinking, and although some of the ideas still seem foreign to me, I am at a point in my life now where I can say, “anything is possible”. I am now willing to embrace and allow myself to experience the world of possibility and let it take me in directions I may have in the past resisted. I really don’t know where all this is going to lead me but I am now willing to explore, develop and grow. Thank you again for a wonderful four days!!
Inflation is a cheat… a crime when it comes to money. Inflating your IQ to beat inflation is simple good sense. Learn Super Thinking now with no risk. Begin to increase your intelligence today.
