It just struck me that it's me, John, Benny and a handful of others. What happened? Is it the forum software? Is it the missed deadlines? Folks waiting to see what happens with the book and belt before partaking?

I can't talk enough to keep this place afloat - and you would want me too John's doing his level best by answering "a man..." emails.

Seems like their can't be more than ten of us left. I remember when this place was rocking with Greg and Joe and Andy so many others. Seems like a sad ending.

I hope the book and belt launch on time and maybe this place can start building momentum again.. If it doesn't I think it will be a ghost town.

Got any cover art or teaser chapters you can release to keep us going?

Some software doesn't work for the forum to be viewed, the best I use is Firefox. Delays are another factor and I do care about John and want him to succeed with the belt and book but many people including myself aren't overly excited about the belt and book anymore. John gave me 2 belts to try out and the exercises I do are pretty basic and are most likely in the book, I've learned enough exercises on my own that I'm happy with and there are a few that John will most likely never put in the book cause some won't be meant for specific training.

I do have a feeling the forum won't be around much longer and as sad it is, everything comes to an end at some point so make the time worth it with the memories and the good and the bad stuff happened and everything happens for a reason. Some of it is controversial, some were funny, some were downright outrageous and others were just freaking bizarre.

It's a good forum to learn from and there's pros and cons to it yet unfortunately the cons have outweighed more than the pros as of late and the only thing really left of it is a bunch of guys who do nothing but talk about this place in a negative light. I have gotten on them about it in a recent article I wrote and got some colorful comments from them which isn't a shocker or anything I haven't already heard or read. The wile coyotes shouldn't even be called that, more like just a bunch of old guys and a few around my age who talk like they're still in high school being jackasses. It's not a fun way to live a life and I do not know how they keep ranting like little kids and don't really go ANYWHERE!!!!

This place has had a good run and just let things go. No need to prove anything, no need to keep going on about the book and belt, when it comes out, it'll come out, if it doesn't than for a few of us, that's ok there are plenty of other places to learn from and have a great time figuring out what works and what doesn't. Nothing is going to really change once this place is gone and life will keep moving forward, except the old man jocks who will keep talking smack while smacking each other's ass through a keyboard and thinking nothing is wrong with them. I tell you bro, even the crap they said about me is now just sad and pathetic when it did get on my nerves. These are some of the same guys that didn't like getting banned and have to resort to making a forum for themselves to cry their eyes and poke their small woman hands at somebody to make themselves feel like a man.

Hello Everyone,

Thank You to everyone that have stood with me patiently.

There are a great many things that need to be completed not the least of which is the new website which is a completely new development.

Here's the deal. I am not going to be making excuses. I'm getting things done.

The forum and web-site are antiquated as currently stands so that is a priority. The new one will be state of the art along with a new direction and expanded focus of Body-Mind-Spirit.

I'm not making an announcement until it is done.

I've experienced a great deal in the last three years that will be of extraordinary benefit so don't think for a moment that I am giving up because I am not.

---John Peterson

Glad to hear it John.

Personally, I'm looking forward to not only the new book(s), but the new forum. Currently, I'm only able to view it from a pc, with Firefox. I can't do much of anything from my smart phone. Maybe that's a good thing??

Anyway, I'm looking forward to the things to come.

Yeah,

Things are quite disappointing for me here, I find myself just occasionally peeking in to see if there is a note about the release of the new book. For the most part I just don't really see too much here anymore.

I think if it ever happens the release of the new book would do much to re-invigorate things here.

Hello Everyone,

I'm sorry for the disappointment that I have caused anyone.

I won't go into all the details but I have just come out of 3 years' experience of the "Dark Night of the Soul" .

In a sense, I have experienced resurrection and am working diligently to not only catch up but to put in place a state of the art new website and a new forum. A New Everything Really.

I personally know what it is like to feel as though I was operating under a sentence of death and how one gets to a point of wondering what the point is of anything ...why continue...why not give up and get it over with...

Fortunately for me, I have experienced a DIVINE intervention and am for all intents and purposes starting over from scratch with far more knowledge to offer than I ever had before. I will be offering a great deal more on exercise, nutrition, and most of all...Healing One's Broken Life.

BELIEVE ME...MINE WAS BROKEN.

I'm not making excuses and I am not letting anything hold me back. My life is in God's hands and I am living it fully. In the meantime, I have work to do. I am making amends wherever I can and will continue to do so.

One thing I would like to remind everyone of is...ALWAYS REMEMBER that if you show compassion you will receive compassion...as that is the Universal Law of Sowing and Reaping in action. If you feel it is necessary to stick it to me...then do it.

At the moment, I am reaping the consequences of three years of non-performance. This too will soon be passed as an incredibly bright future takes shape and comes into existence.


I am now fully engaged in Healing My Own Life and I will succeed. The seeds of the good actions I am now sowing will reap an extraordinary harvest. I am not wallowing in self-pity but taking constructive action to heal my life. I'm writing this to document exactly where I am at.

I know from having lived it, that ALL manner of thought is building for us the thing we think of and actually bringing it nearer, yet many of us find it difficult to banish fear, anxiety, or discouragement, all of which are powerful thought forces, and which continually send the good things we desire further away so that we feel as though we have taken one step forward and two steps backward.

The only way to keep from going backward is to keep moving forward. Eternal vigilance combined with unfailing persistence is the price of success. There are three steps, and each one is absolutely essential. YOU MUST first have the knowledge of your power; second, YOU MUST have the courage to dare; third, YOU MUST have the faith to do. I now have ALL three in greater abundance than I ever have because I learned the lessons of three years of despair experiencing the darkness of the soul while trying to cover it up.

Also note: I am no longer scattering my NERVE FORCE by having one ideal today, another tomorrow, and a third next week...when YOU, ME or ANYONE scatter our NERVE FORCE we accomplish nothing. The result of scattering our Nerve Force will be a meaningless and chaotic combination of wasted time, effort, and material. Those days are past.

It's a NEW DAY my friends. THANK YOU to all of YOU that have stood with me. I appreciate it more than you will ever know. BUT do KNOW that I WILL STAND WITH YOU.

Now to get things done...

Gratitude to YOU ALL,

---John Peterson

PS: I will always consider anyone's respective viewpoint but anything that I present in my books, BLOGS, videos or audios will be uniquely my own...I will no longer allow anyone's input or pressure trying to make me be this, that or whatever to get in my way of being authentic. If someone wants to leave because I refuse to be vegan or anything else...SO BE IT!!! Anything that I present in my books or on the forum will be because I absolutely believe it and will take a stand for what I believe in my heart to be right, Also NOTE that I reserve the right to change my mind if I am presented with evidence that I have been wrong or merely incorrect about something...Only a fool would continue to deny what is clearly evident.

John,

Thank you for that very heartfelt post.

I sincerely appreciate all that you've done, do and what's yet to come.

We all go through rough times. The luckier ones come out on the other side recognizing them as learning experiences, and use it to help others. You sir, are definitely one of the luckier ones.

God bless, and have a great day.

Rob (aka blackbelt)

I still check in a few times a week. I read all of the post and take it all in. I don't offer much, because most of the members have been at it for a long time and probably don't need my advise. Mr. Peterson you are doing a fine job. Thanks

I would disagree that we don't need your advice. Everyone is at a different stages. Though you may not be advanced as some, your questions may make some of the more advanced think when they answer you and it helps you and reinforces their knowledge.

You certainly have some things to offer that more advanced people may not know just simply because you are newer at it and may be doing things in a novel way. You may bring a new approach to an old problem.

Hey Ware

It is quiet and it's a Shame as I remember the old days when it was a vibrant place!!

I check in every week or so and comment on the odd post, but not as much as I used to!

Maybe we all need to make a little more effort and get topics etc started and discussed?
