You can see a recent article about my life, published last Saturday in the Youngstown, Ohio Vindicator newspaper, online at www.vindy.com/content/local_regional/321867189382959.php
The Vindicator was the paper of prestige when I was growing up in Ohio. It’s flattering to be featured in it today.
Yesterday I was interviewed by a reporter for a major newspaper here where I’m visiting family.
Nerissa was there and decided to offer an exclusive news bit to the writer.
I held my breath, not knowing what she was going to reveal.
“Nobody knows this about Joe,” Nerissa began, “but he types all of his books, emails, blog posts and everything else with just two fingers.”
The reporter laughed. I have no idea yet if it will get in her story or not but it’s true.
I type everything, including this post, with my two index fingers.
This should be proof that you don’t need to know everything or be perfect at everything in order to accomplish a lot.
I’m pretty fast with two fingers.
And apparently if I were any faster, no one could keep up with my output.
PS – What could you accomplish if you just used your current abilities?
Morihei Ueshiba (1883-1969) was the founder of the martial art Aikido.
I love Aikido. The first ad I ever wrote was a flyer to promote the Kent State University Aikido Club in 1972 or so.
I was president of the club, not because I knew Aikido but because I wanted to learn it.
I founded the club, promoted it, gathered some students, and then found an Aikido instructor to come and teach us the art.
We studied the peaceful art and the wisdom of its founder. Ueshiba once wrote:
“The Art of Peace begins with you. Work on yourself and your appointed task in the Art of Peace. Everyone has a spirit that can be refined, a body that can be trained in some manner, a suitable path to follow. You are here for no other purpose than to realize your inner divinity and manifest your innate enlightenment. Foster peace in your own life and then apply the Art to all that you encounter.”
That is a quote that could have been in my book Zero Limits.
Note he didn’t say what path to follow. Divinity guides your way. Your job is to stay on your path and work on you.
PS – My “red flags” post from the other day has gotten more traffic, diggs, and comments than anything I’ve written here yet. Thank you. I am very grateful.
My old friend Jason Mangrum sent me the following email. I loved it and asked if I could share it with you. He agreed. Enjoy. – joe
This is Jason Mangrum.
I love you.
Please forgive me.
Nearly 99.9% of everyone who wrote
a response to my mailing about the
Zeitgeist Movie thanked me for it,
but then asked what they could do
to help literally change the world.
If you didn’t see it yet, it’s at:
From a logical/ego perspective, it
would seem that one person up against
a secret empire of evil controllers
hell-bent on ruling the entire world,
might just seem a bit hopeless…
In fact, you didn’t hear from me for
over a week because of this reason.
I had no clue how to fight it.
I wanted to get together a virtual
“army” of my own to somehow out-power
these forces and turn the tides…
But fear had gripped me and almost
pushed me over the edge. Yes, this
is going to be personal. And real.
The more I thought about it… the
more I researched it… the more I
felt a very real hate stir inside.
They had already won.
I completely forgot the most critical,
yet little-known secret of real change.
And that is why I’m writing to you
right now, with a 100% sure-fire
answer… yes, this will change the
world and bring peace to us all.
This alone WILL put an end to the
Illuminati, government corruption,
wars, violence, hate and crime…
And you have the ability right now
to make this global change. Yes, you.
I don’t care if you believe me, I’m
only concerned with showing you what
above all else, works every singe time.
No other method makes this promise.
In fact, no other can…
Please stay glued to every word of this
email, because you’re going to learn
something that will change you forever.
Just be open.
Are you ready?… because I’m going
to share the exact answer you’ve been
searching for inside this very email.
This is how you can fight, overcome
and win. You *can* change the world.
And here’s how…
Get the hell out of the way.
Stick with me. I’ll explain.
It is said there are 3 stages of
1) You’re born and raised to acquire
and operate under a “victim” mentality,
where everything happens to you, or
outside of you…
2) You suddenly realize that you do
actually create your own reality and
can control it using various methods
that give you a sense of control —
but something is always missing…
3) You realize what’s missing and
make a conscious choice to align
yourself with it – thereby getting
your egotistical mind out of the way,
and you finally… surrender.
Wha?… Am I saying to just sit back
and surrender to these evil forces?
This is how you fight.
You realize the 3rd stage of awakening.
Yes, you create everything you observe
as your reality… BUT, this means that
you *MUST* take 100% total responsibility
for your creation… the good and the bad.
Most people simply are not ready for that.
This doesn’t just mean you’re responsible
for everything you do. It means you are
fully responsible for every problem you
have AND every problem you hear about!
Yes, that includes the corruption.
That’s only the *first* step.
I told you this wouldn’t be easy to swallow.
From the moment it’s on your radar, you created
it in your world. ONLY when you accept total
responsibility for creating it, can you accept
total responsibility for fixing it.
And since you’re reading these words, you
and I are sharing this experience. This is
now a personal message to you, so listen.
I didn’t “get” this, until I read Dr. Joe
Vitale’s newest book, ‘Zero Limits.’
I stayed up all night in bed reading it.
In the book, Dr. Vitale teaches a method
taught to him by Dr. Ihaleakala Hew Len,
a student of an ancient Hawaiian Healing
System called, “Ho’ oponopono.”
Dr. Len actually healed an entire psych
ward of criminally insane patients without
ever seeing them or talking to them.
How did he do it?
He used this very system to petition the
Divine for healing for every aspect within
himself that actualized as the problems
within the patients themselves.
Here’s the biggest secret the Illuminati
hopes you never figure out on your own:
THERE IS NO “OUT THERE” REALITY.
Everything you observe outside of you is
pure illusion. It isn’t real. Even this
email you’re reading right now, is really
an external actualization of some part of
you that is manifesting as these words.
That’s right. The Illuminati. The corrupt
government. The lies. The 911 cover-up.
The lying president and all his officials.
The alphabet-soup agencies. All of it.
I realize this is more than some people
can accept. That’s ok, I’m still learning
myself, otherwise everyone would get it.
Am I going to try to sell you the book
for my own profit or financial gain?
No. But you can see their main site at:
There’s no affiliate link. That is the
official site, and I don’t get paid a
dime to send you there. But I HIGHLY
recommend you get that book. Now.
I promise all of this apparent “craziness”
will make perfect sense to you after you
read it… at least enough to USE it.
I asked The Universe/God for an answer to
how on Earth am I supposed to help fight
all this apparent evil in the world, and
even more — how do I help others too?
Last night into the wee hours of this
morning, I received my answer.
You see, you cannot see something you
don’t like in someone unless it’s already
within you to begin with. Otherwise, it’d
be impossible for you to recognize it.
Do not hate the Illuminati.
Use the energy of LOVE to transmute the
world you experience from one of hate and
sorrow, pain and anguish, secrets and lies,
to one of pure, unconditional LOVE.
There’s great wisdom in those words.
You’ll understand it so much better when
you read Zero Limits. This *IS* the answer.
There is no other way.
All other ways lead to resistance and opposition.
You won’t get anywhere that way.
You may have noticed the 4 phrases I used
at the very top of this email…
I love you.
Please forgive me.
I *CHALLENGE* you to take this action:
Your only “job” is to get out of the way.
In order to do that, you must eliminate
every single thought, idea or memory that
seperates YOU from NOW… the present moment.
The only way to accomplish this, is to
*cleanse* yourself of every thought as
it occurs in your mind and transmute the
energy into a state of pure LOVE.
You do this by saying those 4 statements
over, and over again. Every single day.
Actually, “you” don’t transmute anything.
The ‘bigger’ you does. Call it God.
You’ve heard of “let go and let God” right?
Well… aside from any religious dogma,
this is exactly what that statement means.
Yes, you can control your reality.
But if you want to experience miracles,
let go completely and allow the Divine
to work through you. Be ONE with It.
Joe’s new book seriously has the potential
to help usher in the Age of Enlightenment.
The first step is total responsibility.
The next is to get the hell out of the way.
The final is to let go, and LOVE everything.
Then, your world changes from the inside out.
This is a superior Divine revelation for all
those who are ready to hear it. If you’re not,
then I trust you are not reading this email —
you’re probably doing something “more important.”
Well… this is how you fight.
I cannot stress it enough.
Change yourself. Love everything.
Use the 4 statements at the top of this email
as a “mantra” – say it silently to yourself
over and over again to cleanse every thought
that seperates you from God and the NOW.
Only when you cleanse, cleanse, cleanse, can
you reach the Zero State, where literally no-
thing exists and everything is possible.
Yes, even World Peace.
Imagine 100, 1,000 or even 10,000+ people
who read this email saying this mantra over
and over again on a daily basis for Peace!
I’ve been doing the mantra while writing
this entire email. That’s why you can feel
the energy coming from it. Yes, it’s real.
Forward this email to everyone you know.
Everyone can make a change in their world.
I’ve already decided to align myself with
Divinity, let go and send out pure LOVE.
And I trust with every fibre of my being
that as I broadcast the energy of LOVE,
my world is now changing.
From the inside, out.
Forward this to your entire contact list.
Send it to your mailing lists.
Post it on your blog or anywhere else.
Let’s change the world!
I Love You,

If you can be in Texas next Sunday, August 19th, you can hear me speak at Unity of the Hills in Austin. I’ll be giving two talks that morning, and signing books afterwards. I have no idea what I’ll be talking about, but I have until Sunday morning to figure it out. I’m thinking about something called “How to Change Your Life Forever in Only 20 Minutes.” It might take 25 minutes, though. We shall see. Details are at www.unityhills.org/
