Ron Moss and Gayle Moran

Return to Forever is a jazz fusion group founded and led by pianist Chick Corea.  Return to Forever is often cited as one of the core groups of the jazz-fusion movement of the 1970s. Several musicians, including Clarke, Flora Purim, Airto Moreira and Al Di Meola, first came to prominence through their performances on Return to Forever’s albums.

In the mid 1970-es , Corea  reformed Return to Forever, adding his wife, Gayle Moran, formerly of the Mahavishnu Orchestra, on vocals and keyboards, returning member Joe Farrell, and drummer Gerry Brown, along with a horn section consisting of trumpeters John Thomas and James Tinsley, and trombonists Jim Pugh and Harold Garrett. With this personnel, Return to Forever recorded its seventh album, Musicmagic, which was released in March 1977. It became the band’s fourth consecutive Top 40 album, spending more than four months in the charts. A third trombonist, Ron Moss, was added for the tour. On May 20-21, 1977, Return to Forever recorded a live album at the Palladium theater in New York City.

Return to Forever Live was released in February 1979, when it spent a month in the charts. (This was the single LP version; the show was also released as a triple LP, Live: The Complete Concert, which was later reissued as a double CD, Live.)

Later on the Church of Scientology recorded “The Road To Freedom” album which features such leading artists as John Travolta, Chick Corea, Julia Migenes, Karen Black, Nicky Hopkins, Amanda Ambrose, Gayle Moran, and Leif Garrett.

“It’s nice to know you can be a cause of your life as well as an effect,”  John Travolta says of his Scientology training. “It’s a logical and very sane way of living. I don’t get upset as easily as I used to. I don’t think I could have handled my success as well without it.”

Spiritual Awakening

One of the secrets of success is to not work so hard with your physical body; instead, use your mind to work out the details of how to be the person you want to be. Are you motivated to spend 10 minutes a day envisioning the future you want to create for yourself?

By deliberately mentally rehearsing the experience of success in your mind, you can turn aspirations into realities. See yourself free from the old negative habits that have wasted your time, energy, and money. Forget willpower for now and imagine yourself with positive behaviors. See yourself handling any challenging situation that normally triggers your old habits and see yourself using new strategies and doing it with
ease.

Success experts say your imagination is your own personal workshop of the mind. This is particularly true when you want to program yourself towards new habits of success.

Dalai Lama in Canada

Last week we had the fortune to meet Dalai Lama during his visit in Canada and hear his message about companion and change. Earlier, Hollywood actor and Tibetan Buddhist activist Richard Gere called on Canadian Prime Minister to meet the Dalai Lama in public.
The immensely popular 76-year-old Tibetan spiritual leader, who fled his homeland in 1959, nine years after Chinese troops invaded the Himalayan plateau, also delivered a profound update about the resiliency of his people and the prospects of democratic change in China. Dalai Lama started his speech with “Canada belongs to the Canadian people, not to your party (or) other party.”

“For several years we have feared that the whole world could be blown up.” said Dalai Lama. “Human history never experienced that sort of thing, the 20th century became the century of violence, a century of bloodshed. According to some history, about 200 million people killed through violence”
On a question on taking up environmental concerns, Dalai Lama said from his own experience, in the early 1960s he had no idea of the meaning of ecology. Then after meeting scientists and ecologists, etc, he had developed real concern. He said education, including by the media, could help. He said the Rio summit more or less failed, while the Copenhagen summit failed because national interest was considered more important while global interest was not considered an emergency. That was a mistake, he said adding that global warming is a concern for everybody. So big nations should give priority to the global issue and then to their national issue. He, however, said now more and more people are seriously talking about these things, which was positive.

Asked about his views on the worldwide Occupy movement, Dalai Lama said basically there was the need to bring issues of concern to greater awareness of the general public, including leaders. If people remained silent, he said the concerned authorities might not pay attention. He recalled participating in a meeting in New Delhi, India on the difficulties of the poorer section of society during which some people were talking of a demonstration. He said at that time he had told them that if they organize well he might even join the demonstration for the poorer people.
Dalai Lama said the method should be non-violent as they will then have more sympathizers. He added that if the motivation was good, and the end was justified, but if the method was too negative then even sympathizers may feel disaffected and disillusioned.

Robert Herjavec success story

I am a first generation immigrant and arrived in Canada with my parents from former Yugoslavia with only one suitcase, few prospects, $20 and no understanding of the English language. I built and sold several companies. By night, I launched BRAK systems, my first technology company. BRAK soon became Canada’s top provider of Internet security software worth a reported $100-hundred million dollars. I sold my company to AT&T in 2000. But that was only the start. I then helped negotiate the sale of another technology company to Nokia for $225 million dollars. Following a short retirement, I launched The Herjavec Group, now acknowledged as Canada’s fastest growing technology company, and in a few short years has grown from $400k in sales with 3 people to currently $125 million and almost 200 people. I commute between my permanent home in Toronto and a getaway in Florida.
