background: My brother John, unlike my other brother and sister,
never did get to attend a Public Seminar with Rama. So, for many
years (and intensifying over the last several), I have wanted
Rama to "do something" that would let John know There is Something
to All This Stuff in General and Most Definitely Something to
Rama, In Particular.
summer on July 1st , 2000, (at 11:35 am) I was "shown" that Rama
had "bopped" John. "Bopped" is my own terminology for when Rama
"Does Something To Someone Other Than Me & Who Is Not A Student
of his". By being "shown" I mean that, in my day-to-day activities
without any prompting from me, Something Highly Specific that
I Totally Associate Only with Rama "connected unquestionably"

that time John was going through some mental and health challenges
which, in some part, were due to the stress of taking care of
my elderly mother. I told John that he HAD been "bopped", and
I did not know what exactly was going on, but that Rama was definitely
"aware" of his situation.
July, within days of my mother's passing, she came to John in
the Dream Plane and, in true Rama Fashion, insisted he write the
details of her "visit" down, so that he wouldn't forget them.
Not only did Mom's Dream Plane visit contain a specific message
for me, but she also appeared that same week to her caregiver,
who was holding her hand at the time of her passing. And this
wonderful caregiver was the wife of one of John's oldest childhood
I figured at that time THIS was what I had wanted for John from
Rama: a bonafide experience of Another Dimension that he couldn't
deny had happened.
now go to last Saturday, February 3'rd at 3:15 PM, when I was
walking near the Vanderbilt Campus. The Exact Same Physical Manifestation,
connecting Rama and John, presented itself again. Needless to
say, I was surprised, grateful, and wondered "what it meant".
evening after my meditation, I immediately called my brother and
announced that Rama had "bopped" him again. I suggested he be
very "aware" for the next several days of any new circumstance,
information, or opportunity that might present itself.
also told him that, since major Rama Birthday Celebrations were
being held that weekend, he might be "mindful" throughout the
rest of the week. John agreed to be on the lookout for "whatever".
on the next Monday evening, (a scant 48 Hour Cosmic Turnover!)
John and his son, Sean, called to let me know that "out of the
blue" Seanee had "just happened" to be selected as 1 of 4 students
out of the entire student body for a television interview publicizing
to say, my brother and my nephew (who is also my godson) were
very excited about this surprise turn of events, and John admitted
that, yes, some New Opportunity had certainly come his way (through
his son) and, yes, Rama did seem to be "involved" in all of this.
I congratulated them both and then suggested to John that he might
formally "thank" That Magical Being who was behind (or, at the
very least, "aware of" in advance) all of this.
makes this television interview so special is that Seanee's high
school was selected last fall as one of the Top 100 high schools
in the country. His school is in the Midwest and small by most
standards. In addition, Sean was the only senior selected, and
he was "hand-picked" by the school's principal.
camera crew from a major television station came to tape the story
for a later broadcast. Throughout the years John has taped many
videos of his sons' sporting events, proms, etc., so he is particularly
thrilled to be adding this to his collection. And with Seanee
graduating this June, this interview will certainly remain a fond
and distinctively personal high school memory for both of them.
cannot think of a better way for Rama to "get John's attention"
than to "do something" for one of his boys, so, once again, Rama
goes about Doing Those Wonderful Things That Only Rama Does.
never what you think it will be, it's always better than you had
hoped, and more people are always positively affected (yes, Sean
did have the camera crew go into his Spanish Class so that more
students could get on tape). And through it all Rama just simply
goes on his Merry & Magical Way.
my week of Rama Festivities certainly got off to a colorful start.
it is this Profound Level of Caring that urges me to go forward
toward a brighter and deeper understanding of all Rama represents
On February 20th I called my brother for his birthday and was
told that the interview with Sean was broadcast several days ago
(in connection with a story on several other schools). And, yes,
due to time considerations, Seanee was the only student from his
school whose interview was broadcast. In fact, his comments were
also used as the "lead in" to the entire segment, so he appeared
twice. Needless to say, Little Mister Senior and his father were
quite impressed with his Solo Turn in the Televisual Spotlight.
our conversation seemed another perfect opportunity to remind
my brother, "When Rama Bops, he DEFINITELY Bops!
