Non-Personally Identifiable Information

We also collect non-personally identifiable information through the use of “cookies” and IP address tracking (“Log Files”).


A “cookie” is an element of data that a website can send to your browser, which may then be stored on your system. Cookies are pieces of code that are stored on our system that allow us to recognize you and help to optimize your experience when you visit our site. Much of this information is not personally identifiable. Once the user closes the browser, the cookie simply terminates. If users reject the cookie, they may still use our site. Cookies also enable us to track and target the interests of our users as they visit different sections of the site.

Most browsers are set to accept cookies. Some web browsers permit you to refuse cookies, or to alert you when cookies are being sent. If you do so, please note that some parts of the services offered by the Institute, such as message boards, may not function properly.

Log Files

An IP address is a number that is assigned to your computer when you are on the Internet. When you request pages from our Website, our servers log your IP address. The Institute employs IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the site, track user movements, and gather broad information for aggregate use. We do not use IP addresses to learn other personally identifiable information, such as name or address. The Institute servers automatically log certain information that the Institute uses for statistical analysis of website traffic. The information is stored as log files on the server. The log files are regularly collected and analyzed by software to produce visitor trend reports. We use such information to administer our websites and, in the aggregate, to understand which areas of our websites are favorites of our users, which areas need improvement, and what technologies are being used so that we may continually improve our websites.

The information that is collected includes:

  • User’s IP address
  • User’s city
  • User’s state
  • Length of time user stayed on
  • Where user came into the site
  • Where user left the site
  • Referring site that sent user to
  • Site the user went to when leaving
  • Type of browser user is using
  • Search terms user accessed on

This information is used to determine:

  • Traffic patterns
  • Average visitor session length
  • Number of visitors to certain areas of the site
  • Banner ad click-throughs
  • Tracking results of promotional campaigns
  • Other user trends

Server logs do not contain personally identifiable information on individual users, such as names, addresses, email address, occupation, etc. This type of data will only be collected in forms, product sales, or event registrations on

Non-personally identifiable information might include the type of computer, technical information about your means of connection to our Website, such as the operating systems and the Internet service providers utilized, and other similar information.

We may share this aggregate statistical information with our partners and trusted affiliates, but we will not share any individual names, email addresses, personal navigational, or other personal information. Some personal information is kept in confidence with our service providers Infusionsoft and, where secure transmission of confidential user data utilizes SSL-certification on all servers and follows industry-standard and financial-standard best practices.

Security User Information

The Institute takes reasonable steps to protect user information. Only employees who require the information to perform a specific job are granted access to personally identifiable information. The servers used to store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment. If you have any questions about the security at any Institute website, you may contact us at

The Institute uses online forms on its websites to collect specific information for product sales and other data collection uses. In cases where private information is collected, such as mailing addresses, phone numbers, work location, credit card numbers, etc., all forms are secured through Secure Socket Layers (SSL) encryption, the most widely accepted and instituted form of data encryption. Of course no transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure; therefore the user provides the Institute with information at his or her own risk.

In addition to Secure Socket Layer encryption during transmission, the Institute takes these additional precautions with user information:

  • All web servers are protected by managed firewalls.
  • Credit card numbers are encrypted down to the database field level.

The Institute cannot ensure that third-party websites linked from will provide equivalent security. Users should check with the privacy policies of those websites before submitting any personally identifiable information.

Security Online Transactions

The Institute makes reasonable efforts to ensure that all of the transactions that occur on its Website are secure. All credit card numbers submitted to our Website are encrypted with 128-bit Secure Socket Layer (“SSL”) technology. Any personal information that you submit as part of a financial transaction is also encrypted with SSL technology. The Institute reveals only the last five digits of the user’s credit card number when confirming an order. Of course, transmits the entire credit card number to the appropriate credit card company during order processing. It is important for the user to protect against unauthorized access to his or her password and to his or her computer. Be sure to sign off when finished using a shared computer, and do not send credit card numbers or other financial or proprietary information via email.

Your peace of mind and security is very important to us. If you do not feel comfortable submitting your personal information online, you can submit such information by calling 541-482-1515.

Security Credit Card Processing

The Institute uses an outside credit card processing company to bill users for goods and services. These companies do not retain, share, store, or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes. The Institute partners with other parties to provide specific services such as a secured site for financial transactions. When the user signs up for these services, the Institute will share names, or contact and other information, that is necessary for the third party to provide these services with the permission of the user, which is implied by user’s online submission of such information. These parties are not allowed to use personally identifiable information except for the purpose of providing these services.

The Institute has partnered with Authorize.Net, a leading payment gateway since 1996, to accept credit cards and electronic check payments safely and securely.

The Most Dangerous Virus

Many people are speaking now and frequently about fear – of the political situation, unstable markets and weather, and now, a virus. Concern about the virus is now surpassing the other fears that frightened parts of our personalities put on inner display daily for us, if we are willing to look at (experience) them instead of distracting ourselves with food, work, sex, obsessions, and addictions. As we take these inner displays seriously and begin to explore them, a surprising discovery becomes observable, then noticeable, then unavoidable – the most invasive virus that we can experience today is fear. It is contagious, spreads quickly, and dangerous. It puts our ability to give the gifts that we were born to give at risk, and a life without giving them is a life of emotional pain, psychological pain, physical pain, every kind of pain.

There is no vaccine against fear, but there is a way to be healthy again if you become infected: Create authentic power. Frightened parts of your personality generate pain (you are infected when this happens) and loving parts of your personality relieve you of it when you cultivate them repeatedly (you become healthy again when this happens).

Think on this. Take precautions that you would take in any potentially dangerous circumstance, for example, handling very sharp knives in the kitchen, driving on the freeway, or trying to prove your self-worth by impressing others (pursuing external power). In the case of the virus, wash your hands often for at least twenty seconds (sing the alphabet song twice). Use your elbows or knuckles to avoid touching things with your hands, and keep your hands away from your face (viruses enter through mucus membranes including around your eyes). Bump elbows to greet one another instead of hugging. Use alcohol wipes (on the plane use them to clean arm rests, head rests, and trays).

Most important, do what is necessary to insure that you do not become infected with the truly dangerous virus of fear. If you allow it to grow in you, you will experience the very painful phenomenon of imploding under the fear of the collective. The physical virus is given to you to show you what is necessary to be physically healthy. This is symbolic, as is every experience in the Earth school. The destructive virus of fear is given to you to awaken you to what is necessary to move beyond fear permanently. This is far superior to what any vaccine can produce.

You can begin this process by enjoying yourself. That is a well-known and time-tested antidote to fear. Said another way, love is the only effective (and it is always effective) remedy to a life of fear.


Love, Fear, and the Coronavirus

A new consciousness is being born, and an old consciousness is dying. The new consciousness shows us ourselves, the world, and the Universe in new ways. The old consciousness does not. Both coexist in us at this time.

For example, from the perspective of the old consciousness, the internet connects us. From the perspective of the new consciousness, the internet is a reflection in the physical world of our growing awareness of our connection. From the perspective of the old consciousness, the coronavirus is creating our fear. From the perspective of the new consciousness, our fear is creating the coronavirus! How can that happen? What does that mean?

Your consciousness contains fear when you experience anger, jealousy, overwhelm, or anxiety; when you feel superior and entitled or inferior and need to please; and when you are obsessed (winning, making a profit, or romantic love), compulsive (workaholism or perfectionism), or addicted (food, sex, drugs, alcohol). All these are experiences of fear. Your consciousness contains love when you feel gratitude, patience, contentment, or awe of the Universe. These are experiences of love.

In other words, from the perspective of the new consciousness the coronavirus is an enormous and dramatic reflection of the enormous fear in our collective consciousness. Where, then, is its counterpart – the equally enormous and dramatic reflection of the enormous love in our collective consciousness? You experience that counterpart – the enormous love in our collective consciousness – each time you reach toward another with love and open yourself to her or his love. Billions of us experience it in our loving, self-imposed isolations each time we find or devise new ways to connect with others – including others we do not know – with love instead of fear, to join them instead of separate ourselves from them, to explore our goodness, softness, and tenderness, and to experience the goodness, softness, and tenderness in them.

We all experience that enormous love each time we wash our hands with the intention to protect others from the virus as well as to protect ourselves from it. We all experience that love in a big way each time we care for the well-being of others as much as we care for our own. We all experience it every time we perform an action – any action – consciously with love instead of unconsciously with fear.

We do not need the coronavirus to show us this, but this what it is designed to show us.


The Compassion Virus

The Compassion Virus is concurrently infecting the human species along with the Coronavirus. The more you know about it, the better.


The incubation period of the Compassion Virus may be quite long. Infection can occur months or years prior to the appearance of symptoms and even predate the birth of the infected individual. In these cases, infection is deemed to have occurred in another personality of the soul of the infected individual. Five-sensory diagnosis is impossible because souls and other personalities of them are undetectable to five sensory clinicians.


Individuals in the early onset stage of the Compassion Virus appear asymptomatic. Physical symptomology is absent, however, internal nonphysical markers are self-identifiable by the infected individual. He or she begins to question why he or she performs certain actions apart from obvious benefits and detriments. Is it for the benefit of himself or herself or/and the benefit of others? At this stage the Compassion Virus becomes contagious.


Advanced symptoms of the Compassion Virus include behavioral changes such as interest in the well-being of random others. These aberrant behaviors hinder accumulation of influence, ability to manipulate and control, acquisition of redundant houses, automobiles, clothing, and luxuries, and accomplishment of conventional aspirations. Infected individuals eventually exhibit compassion for everyone, including individuals they previously disliked, for example, greedy, exploitative, insensitive, rude, brutal, masochistic, and sadistic individuals. This serious and significant symptom signals the final stage in the progression of the Compassion Virus and indicates that it has taken control of the infected individual. At this stage the Compassion Virus is highly contagious.


There is no recovery from the Compassion Virus.


Examine yourself carefully for signs of the Compassion Virus. If you find any, take the following actions immediately:

1. Look at it with your eyes wide open. This is a potentially life-changing condition.

2. Cultivate it.

3. Treasure it.
