InnerTalk® InTouch by Eldon Taylor, Ph.D.



Martin Luther King once said, "I can never be what I ought to be until you are what you ought to be, and you can never be what you ought to be until I am what I ought to be." He went on to say that the mutually related network of reality is the fabric of the human condition.

The sixth fundamental, then, is interdependence, the principle that each of us is an aspect of the whole. Each of us invites respect or disrespect according to what we give others, all others. Down through the ages this concept has been given many labels, including the popular label karma. In law it is called reciprocity. What we sow is indeed what we reap.

Interdependence means individually assuming responsibility for any condition that is contrary to the quality of humanness in its highest form and then acting to produce, out of the condition or situation, balance and harmony for all. That is not to say that we take up causes and then shove them down someone else's throat. It is to say that we can work in harmony through example and right action to produce an environment that is loving and nurturing for all.

Many people operate in a codependent manner. Their method of assuming responsibility is to manipulate others by placing blame, finding fault, or assuming a contractual posture that goes like this: "If I do this, will you...?" or, "If you loved me, you would..." or, "Don't you feel sorry that I feel..." or, "You need me to...," and so on. Codependence is manipulating another person to provide you with security, sensation, and power. If someone else cannot live or function without you, then your self-worth has been validated -- and vice versa. A codependent is a victim, a victim both of his or her surroundings and of other people. The need to control another person is a classic symptom of codependency. Codependency grows out of insecurity. All insecurities are externally oriented. The codependent sees stimuli through the lens of expectation. Expectation is a contract that goes like this: "I will behave this way, if you behave this way;" or, "If you behave that way, I will behave that way." The fear of unfulfilled expectations gives rise to internal conflict.

Happiness is a state of being. It exists moment to moment in the eternal now. If happiness doesn't exist, conflict takes its place -- even if the conflict is only the difference between what we think we should be experiencing and we are experiencing. In other words, when we have what we desire, we experience joy. Furthermore, when what we experience is unconditional, as opposed to contractual, then we experience only joy.

Insecurity fuels fear, and fear is a very creative force. What we fear most is therefore very often what we create as our experience. Instead of accepting what is, we project what might be or lament what might have been. We are responsible only for ourselves individually. We must be whole before any event in our lives will be. Therefore, true interdependence assumes the role of "fixing" oneself.


The seventh fundamental is the culmination of all the fundamentals of success. That culminating principle is this: Do it now. This is a world of action, not procrastination. For anything to change, you must do the changing. Nothing happens until you make it happen! Only you can do it for you.

If the world was a world of theory, then none of us would be here. Nothing in this world stands still or waits. No action is inaction and all inaction is action. The form and the function are the same. Live with the awareness that God's presence exists in all!

The Mind Gym

Over the years one picks up ideas and experience. Years ago I noticed that I could imagine physical exercise and find my muscles responding as though I had actually performed physical exercise. Indeed, I tried this with some athletes I worked with, and they found the same to be true. What a fertile area for research—but one needs the subjects, the materials and so forth, so the idea just sort of integrated itself in with other anecdotal observations. Alas, the idea turns out to be more than anecdotal.

Philip Cohen, reporting on the annual Society of Neuroscience in the November issue of New Scientist, called the new findings a “couch potatoes dream.” Researchers have discovered that imagining exercise can increase the strength of even large muscles. Using ten volunteers between the ages of 20 and 35 to imagine flexing one of their biceps as hard as possible in imaging sessions five times a week, volunteers showed a 13.5% increase in strength. There was no change for the control group who did not participate in the mental gymnastics. Additionally, the volunteers maintained their strength gain for three months following the end of the mental session.

Researchers controlled for unintentional tensing among volunteers by monitoring electrical impulses at the motor neurons of the volunteers arm muscles. The results suggest, “you can increase muscle strength solely by sending a larger signal to motor neurons from the brain,” states Guang Yue at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation in Ohio. (Cohen 2001)

We have had many testimonials on our firm body program, which is directed at imaging a firm, strong body. So, if you’re a little out of shape, take five minutes a day to imagine a solid workout. The proof is in the pudding—check it out for yourself.

Babies babbling meaningful speech

Our patented technology is in part based on the discovery of reverse speech patterns. Eldon Taylor believes that children all go through a stage where their speech is a sort of bridge from goo-goo, gaa-gaa to what we think of as babbling. Not the coo sounds, but the sounds a child makes when they look you in the eyes and say something that simply does not make sense, but they are saying it quite certain that it should. Every parent has experienced this stage. Eldon’s work, which is well posted on our site, has demonstrated that frequently these sounds can be played in reverse and meaningful language found. The so-called babble talk is really something like, “Daddy play” or “Mommy home?”

Well, according to some new research, those babble sounds are definitely more than just noise. Researchers at McGill University in Montreal have confirmed that baby babble is “absolutely a linguistic phenomenon,” in the words of researcher Laura Ann Petitto. (Travis 2001)

The reverse speech paradigm suggested by Eldon continues to be somewhat contentious, despite hard evidence including taped recordings. Still, the discovery of the shift to left brain controls during language formation found by this new study and it’s attending “babble from the right side of the mouth” (called asymmetric mouth vocalizations) is one step closer to more fully understanding the beginnings of language capacity.

Smell the color

Robert A. Osterbauer of the University of Oxford in England employed a novel brain-imaging study to demonstrate that color influences the perception of smell. The study, reported in Science News by John Travis, “offers a neural explanation for past work that indicated that colors influence perception of the smells.” (Travis 2001)

Poem for U.S. Servicemen and women...

This poem was written by a Marine stationed in Okinawa Japan. The following is his request. I think it is reasonable...

"Please, would you do me the kind favor of sending this to as many people as you can? Christmas will be coming soon and some credit is due to our U.S. servicemen and women for our being able to celebrate these festivities. Let's try in this small way to pay a tiny bit of what we owe. Make people stop and think of our heroes, living and dead, who sacrificed themselves for us. Please, do your small part to plant this small seed."

'Twas the night before Christmas,
He lived all alone,
In a one bedroom house made of
Plaster and stone.
I had come down the chimney
With presents to give,
And to see just who
In this home did live.
I looked all about,
A strange sight I did see,
No tinsel, no presents,
Not even a tree.
No stocking by mantle,
Just boots filled with sand,
And on the wall pictures
Of far distant lands.
With medals and badges,
Awards of all kinds,
A sobering thought
Came to my mind.
For this house was different,
So dark and so dreary,
The home of a soldier,
Now I could see clearly.
The soldier lay sleeping,
Silent, alone,
Curled up on the floor
In this one bedroom home.
The face was so gentle,
The room in such disorder,
Not how I pictured
A united states soldier.
Was this the hero
Of whom I'd just read?
Curled up on a poncho,
The floor for a bed?
I realized the families
That I saw this night,
Owed their lives to these soldiers
Who were willing to fight.
Soon round the world,
The children would play,
And grownups would celebrate
A bright Christmas day.
They all enjoyed freedom
Each month of the year,
Because of the soldiers,
Like the one lying here.
I couldn't help wonder
How many lay alone,
On a cold Christmas eve
In a land far from home.
The very thought
Brought a tear to my eye,
I dropped to my knees
And started to cry.
The soldier awakened
And I heard a rough voice,
"Santa don't cry,
This life is my choice;
I fight for freedom,
I don't ask for more,
My life is my god,
My country, my corps."
The soldier rolled over
And soon drifted to sleep,
I couldn't control it,
I continued to weep.
I kept watch for hours,
So silent and still,
And we both shivered
From the cold evening's chill.
I didn't want to leave
On that cold, dark, night,
This guardian of honor
So willing to fight.
Then the soldier rolled over,
With a voice soft and pure,
Whispered, "carry on Santa,
It's Christmas day, all is secure."
One look at my watch,
And I knew he was right.
"merry Christmas my friend,
And to all a good night."

Thank you and enjoy your Holidays!!!
