I was talking to a Muslim lady, who is a a doctor and has a great restaurant I go occasionally, when I'm not totally broke. Anyway, she said something that I found profound and beautiful and very relevant to where we are with the dinar investment.
She said: "Islam is about being between patience and thankfulness. We need to be patient for what we have asked for and then be thankful when it arrives." Given Iraq is mostly Muslim, I think it is very appropriate for us to honor that view too.
I see lots of people who are extremely wound up over the dinar, "will it happen tonight?" etc. There is nothing we can do at all. The gurus do their best to give us what they can. But not one of them has the full set of jigsaw pieces either. If they did, they did they would not be here with the rest of us. So please, don't berate them if your expectations weren't met. It is our expectations that cause us pain. The dinar is not "late", how can it be late since we don't know the plan? As the Beatles said, Let It Be.

On a personal note, I get very sad when I read on the Recaps and elsewhere someone asking something like "Will it happen before next week, since my house will get foreclosed" or something similar.
I made that mistake last year, around June when everyone, even Med (almost) was saying "We're done". I have some significant personal financial issues (and then some) to deal with. I thought "well, all these guys can't be wrong" so I informed some of my creditors I might be able to settle within a month. Of course, Life had the last laugh. The only person who got hurt was me. My reputation took a hit with this particular situation.
My only suggestion is this: spend less time on these sites (sorry Recaps!), limit yourself to checking once a week or so and spend more time with your family, enjoying life. After all, you ARE alive, don't waste the present, after all it is called "the present" for a reason. None of us are promised tomorrow. Live today with no regrets.
One reason so many are deeply frustrated is a sense of lack of control. The most powerful tool for personal change is taking 100% responsibility for ALL your life. If you are responsible, there's nothing you don't control in your choices or expectations is there? But if we depend on something "external" like the dinar, we loose all sense of control and we give away our personal power. So make a plan to improve even one small area of your life, and do it. I cured myself of depression many years ago, by simply washing the dishes. I noticed they piled up when I got depressed. So I took control and washed the dishes. In a very short space of time, problems that I thought I couldn't resolve I began to find ways to resolve.
I've learned (the hard way) to (most of the time) be happy for no reason. My quality of life has improved, even though financially I am way worse off than I was last year. I am also not expecting the dinar to save me right now and I feel so much better for that. I am working a plan of action to move forward no matter what. Make a plan of your own to solve your problems now, and let the dinar show up when it does, work your plan and you'll feel so much better, look younger, loose less hair all without spending a penny!
The dinar will happen just not at your convenience (for evidence see however long you've been involved), sign up for the e-mail if you haven't done so, and rest in peace knowing you will know when it happens. Until then, give out smiles, hugs and joy to others, since there is always, always someone hurting more than you or I.
I've no idea, if this is "just in the nick of time" for us all, but I've found what Buckminster Fuller said, to be very irritating but true: "The Universe will always come to your aid, but just in the nick of time".
For me, I bless this journey so far, since I am now a far better custodian for the wealth I intend than I would have been a year ago. This journey has deepened my understanding of endurance, peace, calm discrimination of facts, and simply being happy because I am loved and can love others.
I honor each and every person who contributes to this and the other sites, we are all blessed by Life, the Universe, Wakan Tanka, God, Allah or any other name we humans call the Great Mystery. I wish you good spaces.
And yes, I want to see it soon too!
