Better and Better


I couldn’t believe it. I held in my hands, feeling the smooth metal surface. I certainly saw it plainly enough in the bright lit room. Yet, as I turned it this way and that, examining it from every angle, my mind boggled; simply couldn’t believe what I was seeing.

“It” was a rather large kitchen spoon of solid metal. When I had first seen it, a half hour or so earlier, the spoon had the normal curves and contours of a typical implement. Now it was bent downward at about a 45-degree angle.

The bend was in the area of the thin part, and was smooth and gradual–as if the spoon had been made that way, perhaps formed over a rounded die. I grasped it with both hands and applied a little pressure. Immediately I realized it would take a good deal of effort even on my part to bend such a sturdy utensil.

Its owner stood before me, the top of his head about level with my belt buckle. I looked at the boy’s slender hands, and I knew without a doubt that they were not the agents of that bend. I finally had to admit there was other alternative than that this nine-year-old youngster had just bent that spoon with his own mind alone.

“Is that okay, Mr. Burt?” the boy asked the man at my side. “That’s fine, Sal, just fine.”

“Hey, Burt!” called a towheaded boy in the middle of the room. “Look!” He held up a teaspoon completely doubled over. I felt my hair starting to stand on end.

Burt Goldman caught my eye and shook his head slightly. “Are you sure you didn’t help a little?” he asked the boy.

“No-o-o-o,” came the unconvincing reply.

“There’s at least one smart aleck in every class,” he murmured to me.

Burt went over to a girl who had been holding her hand up. She was twelve. He beckoned me to follow.

She held up her spoon. And, further, it almost looked normal. “That’s terrific!” said Burt.

“But it went the wrong way,” She said, distressed.

“That happens, Sheri,” soothed Burt. “The important thing is that it bent, isn’t it?” “I guess so,” she said. She didn’t sound wholly convinced.

A few minutes later we were outside in the hall; I was taking my leave. Burt apologized: “This has to be the least spectacular class I’ve had so far. I had hoped for something a little more dramatic for you.”

“Like how?”

“Oh, in just about every class someone does something phenomenal. Some months ago, one kid had the spoon wrapped completely around his finger.”

“What I witnessed today, thank you, will keep me adequately in goose bumps for some time to come!”

“If you want to come back when I have my next children’s class, I can almost guarantee it’ll be better.”

“Better and better,” I muttered–echoing the Silva Mind Control slogan.

“I’ll see you later.” I said, and made my way down the steps to the parking lot.

Before I put the key in the ignition, I sat numbly in my car for a few moments, still trying to put the “unspectacular” things I just observed into some sort of comprehensible perspective. I was even somewhat surprised at my own reaction, for certainly I had been well prepared: I’d been through Burt’s class; I had chatted with him privately innumerable times; I had been through the

advance class given by the grand old man Jose Silva himself–with whom I’d had the rare privilege of talking. And yet . . . when I actually saw with my own two perfectly good eyes spoons being bent by mental force alone, I simply couldn’t believe. And on top of it all, Burt had told me about this many times already.

If, on the Day of Reckoning, through some impossible circumstance I should find being borne aloft on the shoulders of angels, would I disbelieve that too? Am I doomed to go through life doubting everything that’s a bit one way or the other from strictly “normal”? Or was it simply a case of still a little too much blue Volkswagen for me?

To explain that, perhaps I’d better start at the beginning. It was just about six months ago . . .

Here are the latest additions to the library:
Better and Better

"It seems a lifetime ago, as indeed it was for many of you reading this, when Ove Sehested, a student of my Silva Mind Control class, who had just completed the Basic Lecture Series, came to me and asked if I would join him in writing a book about that class. The year was 1977 and life was easy. Ove, who had written a popular book on astrology, lived a few blocks from me and we had become good friends—the collaboration was a natural. I called Jose Silva in Laredo, Texas and as I was at the time the leading and most prolific Silva instructor he heartily approved the project.

"We wrote the book as sort of a diary with Ove, the student, and I as the instructor; as indeed we were. Ove was to be an inquisitive student who had access to his instructor and that’s the way the book was written. It turned out better than we had hoped and Jose himself wrote a nice letter telling us how much he liked the way it turned out. The Silva organization ordered 5,000 of them that were quickly snatched up and over the years the original physical book, with an initial printing of 25,000 has become a hard to get classic selling for hundreds of dollars on the Internet..."

Quantum Absolution

"While editing the work I had to go over every paragraph, sentence and word -- removing that which complicated, or referred to the module program or the Quantum Absolution workbook that was part of the CD program. This has to be a stand alone helpful book to change lives for the better. As I went over the words I found myself submerged in the concepts and even though I had written every word, it came alive for me. To put this book into perspective, read the 29 chapters and you will discover the secret of life itself. I realize that is a presumptuous statement, but you will find it is so. It would be a wonder if you could read Quantum Absolution and did not change for the better. It is one of the best things I've ever written."

Each moon of every planet is held in place through the attraction of the larger mass of the host planet. Here is a little known fact.
