In Honor of Bob Hope
During the years, I regressed many young men who, in a past life, were visited by Bob Hope during combat in W.W. II and Korean wars and before losing their lives.
A story to add to the above reality, in the 1970's one young man, who had been regressed and who attended one of Bob Hope's shows in W.W.II, was at a Los Angeles Football game and when walking out after the game, the young man turned and Bob Hope was in back of him. He turned and thanked Mr. Hope for helping him to laugh for just a little in his previous life. Mr. Hope put out his hand and shook the young man's hand.
It is also a known fact that many of the Hollywood actors and Comedians such as Bob Hope, his writer, and Red Skeleton were members of Earnest Holmes Science of Mind Church in Los Angeles, California that began in 1926. Holmes original work, no longer practiced since his death in 1960, centered partly on an inner visual awareness into the DivineRealm as well as Metaphysical Ideals. A visual meditation was taught that allowed them to enter into DivineTemples that enhanced a sense of humor to make a person laugh as well as study the art of writing humor in a fashion to bring out points to better the society. And most important, all were very aware of a DivineLaw, which states that it is wrong to belittle a person and make hurtful or damaging jokes at another’s expense.
Some may have seen the information below, but when sent to me, I had to add include it for a greater depth to Bob Hope's character and all the wonderful entertainers in the 50’s-60’s, who were Awakened to a Higher Cause.
I Hope This Will Put a Smile
on Your Face and in Your Heart
