DEVTOME.COM HOSTING COSTS HAVE BEGUN TO EXCEED 115$ MONTHLY. THE ADMINISTRATION IS NO LONGER ABLE TO HANDLE THE COST WITHOUT ASSISTANCE DUE TO THE RISING COST. THIS HAS BEEN OCCURRING FOR ALMOST A YEAR, BUT WE HAVE BEEN HANDLING IT FROM OUR OWN POCKETS. HOWEVER, WITH LITERALLY NO DONATIONS FOR THE PAST 2+ YEARS IT HAS DEPLETED THE BUDGET IN SHORT ORDER WITH THE INCREASE IN ACTIVITY ON THE SITE IN THE PAST 6 MONTHS. OUR CPU USAGE HAS BECOME TOO HIGH TO REMAIN ON A REASONABLE COSTING PLAN THAT WE COULD MAINTAIN. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO SUPPORT THE DEVTOME PROJECT AND KEEP THE SITE UP/ALIVE PLEASE DONATE (EVEN IF ITS A SATOSHI) TO OUR DEVCOIN 1M4PCuMXvpWX6LHPkBEf3LJ2z1boZv4EQa OR OUR BTC WALLET 16eqEcqfw4zHUh2znvMcmRzGVwCn7CJLxR TO ALLOW US TO AFFORD THE HOSTING.

THE DEVCOIN AND DEVTOME PROJECTS ARE BOTH VERY IMPORTANT TO THE COMMUNITY. PLEASE CONTRIBUTE TO ITS FURTHER SUCCESS FOR ANOTHER 5 OR MORE YEARS!

 +=A Badge Of Honor=
 +It's been barely two weeks since I finished the
 +basic mind seminar but I've already chalked up a number
 +of significant, if minor successes, using the various techniques
 +learned, e.g., finding a lost personal item, weaving
 +out of a traffic gridlock, finishing a report in record time.
 +sharper memory, greater concentration, increased comprehension
 +and learning ability, etc. But more important
 +than any of these is the marked improvement in my
 +character and personality which hasn’t gone unnoticed
 +by my loved ones, friends, colleagues and associates.
 +Not that I've really been bad but I have a quick and mean
 +temper especially when things don’t turn out as planned
 +or when people's actions don't come up to my expectations
 +or standards. I have learned to be
 +more patient, more cheerful positive and optimistic. Of
 +course, I still do get upset (though not as much and as
 +often as before) but I'm able to snap out of it in no time.
 +Encouraged by my initial successes, I am now programming
 +for a few bigger goals.
 +
 +I wear the pin all the time. More than being
 +a "badge of honor” it serves as my guide and conscience
 +(next to God) and a constant reminder of my improved,
 +nay, superior consciousness. Admittedly, I still have a
 +long way to go and I need to go to my level and practice
 +the techniques as diligently and conscientiously as 
 +possible. But surely, I know that from here on, I can only get
 +better and better in every way.
 +
 +I will continue to spread the good word about mind techniques.
 +Indeed, if only more people would have superior consciousness,
 +our benighted and bedeviled country can
 +escape from its rut much sooner. May our tribe increase!
 +
 +=Things Can only Get Better And Better, In Our Lives And In Our World=
 +Ms. Judy Qoa will finally mark the readiness of her
 +two books, Teach Only Love and Everyday
 +Miracles in a simple get-together
 +with the graduates sans elaborate ceremony or
 +glittering celebration.
 +
 +“The idea is just to enable the people to
 +have a first view of the books before the public does.
 +This is as much their event as it is mine.” she explained.
 +"Alemars is a fitting venue as it is virtually a
 +center of sort for the practitioners,“ she added.
 +
 +Teach Only Love, Positive and Uplifting Selections
 +on Life and Living, is a compilation of 100 of her
 +select articles in her popular column of the same title at
 +the Philippine Daily Inquirer.
 +The book has 260 pages.
 +
 +Everyday Miracles, Success
 +Stories of Ordinary People Who Have Transformed
 +Their Everyday Lives, contains 150 better
 +and better stories of select graduate-practitioners,
 +who thoughtfully shared their programming achievements.
 +There are chapters explaining the powers of the
 +mind course in simple and clear terms and why it is
 +essential for people to learn and experience it. Of interest
 +is the chapter on "Questions Commonly Asked" in
 +which the queries about whether the mind technique method is a
 +religion, or is it against any religion, etc. are answered
 +satisfactorily. The coincidences that led them to develop
 +the revolutionary program are likewise detailed. The
 +book is 388 pages thick.
 +
 +The articles in the Teach Only Love are divided
 +into nine sections as follows:
 +
 +1) Mind Influences, 2) Life Values, 3) Health Heals, 4) Positive Stress
 +5) Effective Learnings, 6) Affective Changes, 7) Parenting Skills
 +8) Essential Tools, 9) Epilogue
 +
 +Excerpts from the "foreword" to the Teach Only
 +Love book written by Bishop Teodoro Buhain, Titular
 +Bishop of Bacanana and Auxthary Bishop of Manda, read
 +as follows:
 +
 +“The power of the individual to create the quality
 +of his life is a recurring theme in the 100 selections in the
 +book. The use of his God-given talent to create, to
 +humanize himself and others, to endow life's events with
 +meaning, to interpret life's situations against the bigger
 +parameters of living as a better and better person .. these
 +are the human prerogatives that the articles
 +celebrate ...
 +
 +One feels good after reading the book. It restores
 +the glory and the pride in being human. It demolishes the
 +excuse we often give for our shortcomings, failures and
 +weaknesses. sapagkat kami ay tao lamang! Rather it
 +places man on a pedestal where he truly belongs, a living.
 +irrefutable testimonial to the greatness and omnipotence
 +of his caring Maker. "
 +
 +In a second foreword, Mrs. Lita Logarta, Lifestyle
 +Editor of the Philippine Daily Inquirer, describes the
 +book as “Remarkable and amazing ... there has never
 +been a magic wand to transform people, perceptions,
 +events or even ourselves, Cinderella's Fairy Godmother
 +notwithstanding. But with Judy Qoa's help, things can
 +only get better and better, in our lives and in our world.“
 +
 +The Everyday Miracles covers Qoa's almost six
 +years of involvement with the mind techniques. She writes
 +her own personal story in the preface: how she got started
 +and the many challenges faced and hurdled. She also
 +explains why the book is so titled. The better and better
 +stories are divided into:
 +
 +1. Health Miracles: From Detection to Recovery
 +to Wellness: Medical Tools, Stress Control, Medical Cases, Programming for Babies
 +
 +2. Business Miracles: Overcoming obstacles, Optimizmg opportunity
 +
 +3. Career Miracles: Actualizing potentials; Acceleratmg growth
 +
 +4. Personal Miracles: Transformations, Achievements (Sports, Scholastic, Winning, Emigration, Against the Elements, Sweet Triumphs), Enriched Relationships
 +
 +5. Multiple Miracles: Sustained benefits
 +
 +6. Spiritual Miracles: Enhanced faith
 +
 +7. Little Miracles: From the mouth of babies
 +
 +8. Special Miracles: Improving self; Enlightening others
 +
 +
 +Fr. Luis G. Candelaria, a Jesuit-priest who took
 +A mind technique program two years ago, read through
 +every page of the book and “enjoyed” every minute of it.
 +“I find Judy's message very affirming and assuring ...
 +encouraging .. she's a messenger of hope, of love,“ he
 +reviewed.
 +
 +Judy's message is scriptural: In Romans 12:2, St.
 +Paul exhorts his listeners: “Be transformed by the
 +renewal of your mind, so that you may judge what is
 +God's will, what is good, pleasing and perfect,“ he added.
 +
 +“Truly, I find this book's message very timely. It
 +is an answer to the prayers of many in search of hope. It
 +gives hope - something we all need these days,“ the
 +veteran educator and sought-after spiritual adviser concluded.
