I presented the Compassion Project Card to my local City Council meeting last night. Thank you for these amazing materials! In the three minutes we get for public comments I told them about the project and took them through the exercise.... I was able to connect with a few people and a local reporter will write about it in our city newspaper. I gave the Mayor and Council members compassion exercise cards, and the woman who spoke after me vouched for the importance of the card telling everyone to make sure they read it! (I had given her one a few days prior). She admitted to the council she was "choked up" after my presentation. I love this mission!
Also, it really helped me that right before the meeting I read Chapter 12, Getting Your Thinking Straight from your book "The Avatar Path. The Way We Came." I thank you as well for the other exercises I used to calm my nerves before the meeting. Muchisimas gracias!!!

Waking up to be me
I just want to say how I feel after doing the Creation Exercises in Section II of my Avatar Course. I feel calm, like I have never felt before and so ME! Thank you for waking me up to be me, just the way I am! - Dannielle V., Brazil
I had another chance to use the Compassion Exercise recently. In my garden there are many iguana's. They love papaya leaves. I had two trees close to a concrete wall and the iguana's could easily reach out for the leaves. They continued eating until the last of the leaves were gone. It hadn't rained in a while so I felt compassion for the iguana's.
When it started to rain I planted a new tree. I put a fence around it to keep the iguana's away. I even bought an expensive spray called "Iguana Rid". But probably the young papaya leaves were too good. The iguana's climbed the fence and didn't even notice the expensive spray.
I was very disappointed and found something to cover the top of the tree. The iguana found a way in and again ate all the leaves. I fixed the hole and hoped they would not find another way in. A few days later I saw an iguana going through a hole for the leaves. I felt my belief "Stay out of my territory or I will punish you" as absolutely true. My identity lowered on the scale and as the iguana walked away, I through a big brick at it. It hid under some grass and seemed to look at me begging for its life.
I felt very ashamed and went inside to work on the identity. The iguana walked away very slowly, but what I did to this creature stayed in my mind. I did the Compassion Exercise. I could feel lots of compassion and how this creature was just like me, trying to fulfill his/her needs in life.

Dear Harry, Avra and all the Masters and Wizards,
I have just reviewed the Avatar Course and I want everyone to know how much I appreciate your gentle, caring response to me during my Avatar path. I now have more of myself than I have ever had even after seeking a spiritual path for many years. This is the only program that is giving me the tools to understanding intentions and feelings and putting them together in such an understanding way.
I will always be grateful to you all for your courage to "keep on keeping on" creating these tools to give us peace and serenity. The path to freedom is sometimes long but your integrity is leading the way to a better and more compassionate world. I am honored to know you all. With love and appreciation,

I am in the International Avatar Course in Orlando. I appreciate the exceptional organization of the course, including the Materials, the audio/video, the scheduling etc. You have got top notch people running the show and I am impressed!
I'm doing a Source List with my roommate and he is doing so well! And we are having fun with it. I've noticed that, this morning at least, doing the Exercise with my new perceptual skill I learned, is working some muscles in my brain. The objects, people, etc. are clearer and my attention is much more focused. I tend to be "all over the place" and rather helter-skelter. Just doing the exercises I've learned in ReSurfacing and Section II of the course is creating perspective I have never noticed before.
Thank you, Harry, also for you free online videos. They are awesome!! Thanks to all your associates in peace making; first peace with ourselves and then with the world. P.S My Masters (mentors) I am working with are great!

I just did the labeling exercises from Section II of the Avatar Course. It felt like a vacuum cleaner for my consciousness! It is so good to see clearly what is going on in my mind and then be able to let it go. Thank you for writing all these materials and then getting them to us!
