A mentalist is someone who doesn't produce a trick, but an effect on someones mind, heart, and spirit.

Besides all the gimmicked effects, This is the deepest effect of all time, An effect on Human culture



"I say to you today, my friends, so even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream.

I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: "We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal."

-DR. Martin Luther King JR



If no one has noticed yet, today marks the assassination of one of the worlds greatest and most influential Mentalists of all time. (Dr. Martin Luther King J.R.)

Today, April 4th, 2008 marks this 40th anniversary of his assassination, (Didn't know that, did you?)

No one has mentioned it out the entire day, so I thought id pay a tribute to this great man. (He really did have a dream after all).

Rest in peace Mr. King.

MENTALV,


How do you use mentalism to further the "DREAM"?

Peace.

Wrong section.

This has nothing to do with mentalism.

How many are aware of King's opinion that Anti-Zionism = Anti-Semitism? Whilst I disagree with the statement, it's refreshing to see a religious man also standing up for the rights of another faith.

Kraze,

(shakes head)

Wow.

Half the post on this thread have nothing to do with mentalism.

...

Way to shoot somebody down. I hope you feel better. Maybe it has nothing to do with mentalism to you, but maybe it gives people like V and I (me) faith and hope to continue to perform. And to be completely honest, I read this before I went to work, talk about this in my show. Used it in my script. Also, I believe ( as do some of the other people here that posted) that V's reasoning was clear... " A mentalist is someone who dosent produce a trick, but an effect on someones mind, heart, and spirit. Besides all the gimmicked effects, This is the deepest effect of all time, An effect on Human culture"

Maybe you should read and comprehend before you try to shoot someone down. Get your facts straight.

V, I thank you for the post, and truly did talk about this in my show tonight. I understood the metaphor.

I thank you.

Bet that.

Hey mentalv, where in tampa do you reside? I grew up on davis island. I'm going down there this weekend actually. I miss it. And thanks for the post. Any decent mentalist will tell you most of what makes it great has nothing to do with mentalism. But you obviously know that unlike Mr pseudo-smartypants contrarian up there.

Natural Mystic,

that's a real difficult question to answer, I use what I do,to place that positive energy in their minds,hearts, and souls, to give them that motivation, and inspiration to view life in a whole different way and to look deeper IN this book of life that we are now creating, I want to get them too look past all the negative energy in the world and focus on the things that are important, and things that will make the world a better place for us all. I think I am furthering the Dream one step at a time.

Much love

Kriskraze, stop criticizing and show some respect, really, You need some positive energy,

Thanks XJESTERX, I really appreciate that, that's great, How did you show go bro?

Bertrand Thornley,

Thanx man, I actually live in Saint Petersburg, Florida. But nobody ever knows where that is, So I'm real close to Tampa. You should come Down to the Magic By the bay Convention Next Year, Eran Raven performed and many others, It was great this year!, right Xjesterx? lol

Right I agree, it's not about all the tricks, but the effect you produce on the audience and what they leave with, But some people have a FAILURE to see that

Wrong section again.

Why are you bringing this up here?

Great people have died on every day of the year.

This is a place for mentalism - not a place for commemorations.

Get you head out of your "bleep" as you so kindly put it, and realise that.

Sometimes, its only when someone reminds you, that you realise how great the dream was and still is, thank you.

Perhaps we could all learn a little humility

Thanx, I agree Tanis, We all could learn a little humility, especially this guy kriskraze.

Ignorant people like kriskraze make me SICK to my stomach and I truly mean that

I think this is wonderful, and it's exactly the direction I've been moving in with my crative work in mentalism and magic.
