December, I think of Christmas. This December I think of the glorious
transition from one century to another, from 1900 to 2000. A time of
glorious change. The computer industry has made me aware of another
condition that should say something to me as human being as well as my
computer driven society.
A device I created to run my world and make my life
easy informs me that I must physically change its date from 00 to 000
to move to its complete number of 2000. A simple thing, however when
it is not done all of its systems will crash because it needs to be
told with which number it is working.
My brain, my personal inner computer, must be
equally informed about the condition with which I work with it. My
brain is a simple structure yet its infinite variables must be
programed to function harmoniously.
Just as humanity is vitally concerned over the Y2K
transition for its computer devices so that they will keep the
economic balance of the world, so my brain needs to know its position
in the scheme of things. I need to program my brain with concepts and
words that inform it that it is functioning in the right pathway. My
brain needs to know that I have confidence in its innate genius, that
I respect its natural capacity to accomplish all things harmoniously
and effectively for my good.
True, I must program my computer by preparing it
for the millennium or it will not function well. For all of my
computers running Windows I do the following to prepare each for Y2K:
I double click on "My Computer," I double
click on "Control Panel," I double click on "Regional
Settings," I click on the "Date" tab at the top of the
page. Where it says "Short Date Sample," I see it shows a
"two digit year"—the default setting of Windows 95 and 98.
This date is the date that feeds application software and will not
roll over to the year 2000; it will only roll over to 00. I click the
button across from "Short Date Style" and select the option
that shows mm/dd/yyyy (I make sure the four Y’s are showing), then I
click "Apply" and then I click on "OK" at the
bottom. Easy enough to fix, however each of my Windows installation is
defaulted to fail the Y2K rollover unless I do it myself.
As I prepare for Y2K with my computer, I will find
As I prepare for Y2K with my brain, I will find no
crash. I will find that my life runs smoothly and harmoniously. To
prepare my brain I do the following:
Daily I tell myself: I like me.
Daily I tell myself: My body is the temple of the
Daily I tell myself: I am the creator of my world.
I create every person and circumstance in my world. I create
everything good and very good.
Doing my computer preparation, I will avoid crashing. Doing my
brain programing, I will avoid crashing. I will live a wonderful life,
