This article first appeared on my site as a blog post on March 18, 2012. However, blog-posts have a tendency to disappear into archives with the passage of time, and only those searching for the specific topic would find them. Hence I decided to make this more visible and prominent as a page under the heading of “People Who Inspire”, because Dr Mel Gill is truly inspiring. You only have to listen to the tracks to come to the same conclusion. So “Switch On Your Speakers To Nourish Your Soul !”
A few months ago – on 17 October 2011 to be precise, I searched for Dr Mel Gill on Facebook with the intention of sending him a message. He was not on my friends list at that time. In fact, till a couple of days before that, I had not even heard of him.
So why was I hunting for a total stranger ? Perhaps the message that I sent to him will make things clearer. Instead of my trying to explain what the message was about, I would rather let the message speak for itself. I dug it out of my mailbox just for this post. Here it is, reproduced verbatim:
Dear Dr Gill,
Greetings from New Delhi. I just wanted to share something with you. Till about three days ago, I had never heard of you. Three days ago, while I was sitting at home and adding a page of quotes to my website, I suddenly remembered something out of the blue.
Several years ago – I can’t recall exactly when, but must have been at least 7 to 8 years ago, when I had visited Mauritius, one of my friends there had given me a CD, and I vaguely remembered him tilling me that I must listen to it. I never did. I came back to Delhi, put the CD along with my music collection, and forgot all about it.
I do not know what made me remember that CD suddenly, but I had a clear recall of the CD being given to me by my friend. I vaguely recalled him telling me that if I needed true motivation in life, I must listen to it. And now, several years later, since my website is all about motivation, I recalled it, located it and listened to it.
I heard it for the first 5 minutes and thereafter I was hooked. I could not move, and sat through silently digesting its contents. The CD, sir, was yours. Breakfast for the soul, it was appropriately called. I have been going through a series of ups and downs for the last few years, and managing to hold myself afloat, but just about.
Listening to you Sir, was like a shot in the arm. It was an eye-opener, and perhaps it was just the guidance that I was looking for. In fact, I went looking for your book “Uncommon Sense” today, but I could not find it, but I am sure if I check out some other book shops, I should be able to find it. I am also trying to locate the DVD for the Meta Secret. I would really appreciate it if you could give me an idea of who the publisher is, so that I can locate it in Delhi.
It would also be both, a privilege, and an honour, Sir, if you would accept my friend request.
With very best regards,
Rajiv Bajaj – New Delhi.
Dr Gill was kind enough to accept my friend request, and I have been following his updates keenly since then, interacting with him off and on. When you look at his info page, this is what it says about Mel –
|I am a Writer, Film Producer, Life Coach and Spiritual Therapist and I don’t believe in Miracles….I depend on them!!!|
On his Official Facebook Page you will find more info about him. Dr Mel Gill is a Hermetic Philosopher, Spiritual Counselor and a Film Maker. He is the Producer of the movie, “The Meta Secret” and the Author of “Uncommon Sense” and 12 other best-selling books.
As I said, I have been following his highly motivational updates and also the stupendous collection of music that he shares from time to time. However, there was something that he wrote last night that made me sit up and take notice, and I immediately got in touch with him.
Here is what Dr Mel Gill posted on his Facebook wall:
“I HAVE A DREAM TO CHANGE THE LIVES OF A BILLION PEOPLE ON THIS PLANET IN THE NEXT 2 YEARS. ITS NOT ABOUT THE MONEY; MY PRODUCTS AND BOOKS WILL BE MADE FREE FOR THOSE WHO CANNOT AFFORD THEM AND I ENCOURAGE PEOPLE ALL OVER THE WORLD TO PIRATE AS MUCH AS YOU LIKE OF EVERYTHING I TEACH AND CREATE. MY PHOTOGRAPHS, AUDIO PROGRAMS AND SEMINARS.
SO INTERNET MARKETERS EVERYWHERE…TELL ME WHAT YOU NEED AND I WILL DELIVER IT. HELP ME TO TOUCH MORE LIVES IN MORE COUNTRIES THAN I AM ABLE TO REACH.
A GREATER FORCE THROUGH KIND FRIENDS USUALLY TAKE CARE OF MY BILLS. BUT MY CONCERN IS NOT MY BILLS. I NEED ADMINISTRATIVE HELP, GRAPHICS HELP, EDITORS, TRANSLATORS, AUDIO ENGINEERS, FILM EDITORS, PRODUCERS AND DIRECTORS. YOU NAME IT. THERE IS SO MUCH BURSTING FORTH FROM MY HEAD BUT RESOURCES ARE SO TIGHT.
BUT AS A GROUP……WE CAN TOUCH THE SKY!
WHO WOULD LIKE TO JOIN ME IN MY “IMPOSSIBLE DREAM”?”
I knew instantly that I wanted to be a part of this “Impossible Dream” and volunteered my services to him. I have been listening to the audio of Breakfast For The Soul off and on, and I wanted to share them with everyone. I asked him for permission to publicly share the audios, and he immediately gave me the go ahead.
It is a matter of immense pride for me that someone like him had allowed me to share his message with the world. I have closely followed several well-known motivators and life coaches. I can’t seem to recall many who had voluntarily decided to waive their commercial interests and genuinely made efforts to touch and transform lives. I am so happy to be a part of this dream.
Folks, I have only one request to make of you. If you believe in Dr Mel Gill’s “Impossible Dream”, share ahead to make it a reality.
