A quick note to let you know that we have new materials on the website at  Check out “Excerpts” for 3 new talks (Sex, The Party Story, and Being Contrary.)

The drop-down menu under “Basics” now includes Books, Pamphlets AND Handouts Dr. Robert Rhondell Gibson (Dr. Bob) passed out over the years. Learn how to effectively Avoid Prosperity or… How to Raise a Delinquent.  Also you’ll find 2 poems with beautiful messages that he passed out over the years.

Under “Workshops” we’ve added “The Fourth Way.”  Are we Aliens here to build a colony?

Project Preservation continues to gather Dr. Bob’s materials from around the world to put in the “ark” that is  For those who asked how they could help out, we could use more Proofreaders to simultaneously listen to the audios (see “Links” section) and proofread what’s been transcribed.  If you’re interested, (or have comments, questions or ideas to share) feel free to contact Tina:

“Where Am I”

We have often heard of self-remembering and the four valid questions — “What Am I?” “Where Am I?” “What’s Going On Here” and “What Can I Do?”     Great questions to experiment with.

But there’s an alternate answer to “Where am I?”. We can observe where our attention is in the present moment.   If our attention is somewhere in the “past” either in regret,  accounts receivable or self pity, then we are not in the now – the present moment.

If our attention is in the “future” and pondering “what if this happens” or “that happens” or in “planning”, we are looking for comfort, pleasure, attention, approval and feeling important in the future or we are trying to plan for an escape from pain, feeling ignored or rejected, or escaping a sense of inferiority, not being needed or important. Then, again, we are not in the now – in present time if you please.  It could be said that we’re “out of time”.  Can you “live” in the past?  Can you “live” in the future?    Nothing can be done in the past or the future – only now!

So in answer to “Where Am I”, I can say “I am here.”

It can jog me out of my reverie or my day dreams which are all illusion and fantasy.

Therefore, I can say, “Here I am – I’m listening and watching.” What better place to be – here – now!  I’m living this moment fully with rapt attention.  (definition of rapt: completely fascinated by what one is seeing or hearing right now!)  I’m on the job reporting to my partner within – X.  It’s an experiment worth working with today.

New Workshops Posted

Check out the latest Workshops posted on the site by clicking the Workshops menu button above.

You will see Rodey, NM – 1979, Roswell, NM – 1975 (just posted yesterday) and Santa Ana,CA School – 1977

So keep checking the website for new materials.

Also we have added a new feature to the “Basics” in that we are in a process of completing verbatim transcriptions of the original 48 tapes and adding those transcriptions at the ends of the original pages.  To date we have done the first 3 tapes.

Happy 2016 and Welcome to Project Preservation!

We’re starting the New Years by getting in touch with all our Friends of the Teachings to let you know how thankful we are for your continued interest, support, and feedback.  And also to let you know about some delightful changes and additions to the website.  Check out:

1)  A beautiful picture of Dr. Bob and a small homage – click on the tab named “Dr. Bob Bio” at the top of any page.

2)  Click on the “Basics” tab and you’ll see “Books” in the drop-down menu.  Five of the six books Dr. Bob had printed are there in pdf or web page format.  If you prefer to have a beautiful hold-in-your-hand book version of Life’s Word, it can be purchased through Amazon at this link:’s%20Word%20by%20Anonymous&qid=1450887235&ref_=sr_1_42&sr=8-42

3)  The “Transformation” poster from 1978 is now available under “Definitions & Illustrations”, a drop down menu under “Exercises”.

4)  The “Workshops” section has new workshops, faithfully transcribed from the original audio file to retain Dr. Bob’s unique style of talking.  (We now have extra proofreaders that are making this go much faster, so check back frequently for new material.)  The newer workshops are set up as “read alone” or to be read as a companion to the audio files themselves.  And that brings us to a major change in what is available to you.

5)  Click on the “Links” tab;  under “Project Preservation” you’ll find links to DropBox and YouTube where you can listen to audios or watch Dr. Bob.  What a treat for everyone, especially those who never had the privilege of meeting him.

This and the materials to come are accomplished under the umbrella of  “Project Preservation”.  We’re scouring the 4 corners to find every workshop, video and paper that Dr. Bob ever created.  Eventually most everything will be available in written as well as mp3 format.  We still have a huge amount of material to complete, but could be missing something you have.  If you notice that, let us know and we’ll check our files.  Also, if you’d like to contribute in some way (so appreciated!), please contact us.

Before Dr. Bob left the Party, he asked that the material be made available to everyone.  It is to this aim we are concentrating our efforts.  Project Preservation makes this site the “Ark” for these gifts given so generously to all of us.

An Experiment – Reporting with Feeling, not Words

So many of us think of reporting as words:  “Hank is feeling sorry for self,” or “Mary is angry,” or simply, “That’s a not-I,” thinking that saying the words will change the feeling and we’ll leave our “funk”.  And though the words have value so that the intellect can recognize and define, what gets reported to X is the FEELING, not the words.  It’s fine to say, “I’m feeling guilty,” or “Jerry is feeling guilty,” yet just saying or thinking the words isn’t reporting to X and the feeling of guilt usually remains.

The feeling is what’s reported to X.  For example, if one is feeling fearful, that’s what X gets (no matter how much I say to myself I’m confident or thankful).  However, we can report with feeling accurately and X will do the appropriate thing for the information received.  The first step is to recognize the “what is:”  (Ok, I’m feeling pretty fearful about _____.)  We can then ASK ourselves, “Is this to “my” advantage?  Do I want to stay this way?”  If we do, that’s perfectly fine.  If we don’t, we can CHOOSE another feeling a little higher up on the Tone Scale where it’s not so hard on the ole’ bod.

One good, simple, work-a-day feeling is Vital Interest.  We can always get interested in something – even if it’s cleaning a closet or doing the dishes or running an errand.  We can get vitally interested in situations, people, animals, conversations, work, anthills, scenery; the list is endless.  So if we choose Vital Interest as an inner feeling, what’s next?

ACTION.  Set a timer and for the next 20-30 minutes, ACT the way you want to feel.  Getting the body involved is the key here.  The inner feeling will change (from fear, self-pity, guilt or boredom, resentment, anger, anxiety or worry, feeling “better than” or “inferior to”) to a feeling of Enthusiasm or Vital Interest.  And as we ACT, so shall we FEEL.  And that’s what X responds to.

Two Experiments

When we go to a typical school, we are told to read the material, memorize it, “learn” it, and be able to pass a test.   When we hear the Teachings, perhaps we associate this with school as we knew it.

So when we encounter the Teaching ideas, many of us think we have it because we read it, memorized the words and can speak it. It’s not enough.  We are encouraged to experiment with these ideas and see what happens.

To experiment with an idea has been said to disprove it.   When we experiment with an idea not only can we experience a difference, the idea can stay with us, becoming a new choice – like keeping the mood up, or contributing to a pleasant mood.   The more we use it, the more it becomes part of our daily life and serves us – we live in what we radiate.

So below are a few experiments that can be run to see what happens. And an experiment means there is no failure.

Experiment #1

Work on seeing all events, circumstances and people (including self) as just fine the way they are.


  1. I don’t know what I need
  2. I don’t know what ought to be
  3. I don’t know who or what to blame (or the cause of anything)
  4. I don’t know the future

When the not-I’s take charge and one feels angry, fearful, guilty, insecure, self-pitying – remember and repeat the above. Then WORK with it to discover – what’s the illusion I’m operating from right now?
