Melvin was haunted by his last viewing thinking he had it totally wrong. In fact his viewing was right on and the lesson here was that he let his fear of failing and the whole burden of his media fabricated image get the best of him.
Once he realized that his current position and status would not change anything in the way he was connected with the universe, he turned his fate into action.
And nothing would stop him after that.
This is a follow up letter from his last one to me (Episode 4).
In Episode 3, Melvin has realized that a young man who had provoked him, stealing his books, were in fact just bitter because he did not know how to read himself.
As Melvin took on to teach the young prison mate with the book that I had sent him, he realized that many of the men in prison are in fact "warehoused" as he puts it, and that nothing is done to help them change.
He goes on to describe that most of the men imprisoned have never received any opportunity to be something else. They represent an enormous untapped group of talented people who have never been given a chance because of their own upbringing, because of social discrimination or because they have mande their own mistakes. However Melvin states that many of them really wish to better and realize themselves and work for the good of others as well as their own.
Melvin's letters are now becoming a usual spark of light in my weekly routine. I enjoy going to the mailbox and opening it, hoping to see the familiar handwriting of the prison's address on the left side of the envelop.
You too can enjoy that routine retroactively as well, by following this blog.
Attached, Melvin's letter of May 28th 2014 and my answer of June 10th.

Remember in my last post, Melvin talked about this young man who stole his books? And it turned out it was more a cry out for help than a true provocation?
Well, the miracle of compassion started to happen. I was moved by the story and decided to buy adult literacy books and sent them to Melvin so that he could teach the young man how to read.
The time Melvin took to actually gently coach this young man was repaid tenfold by the gratitude he received. As sharing books and knowledge started to become a new way of showing respect and love, men realized that "the Doc" had something different to offer than most inmates: knowledge, wisdom and this thing he kept calling "Remote Viewing".
Melvin would tell the men that Remote Viewing was something everyone could do. They also read it in my book God Consciousness, The Journey of a Science Driven Psychic Medium that Melvin had shared with them. A lot of the men in Melvin's tier became intrigued first, then curious about this Remote Viewing "thing".
Then finally, one inmate made the big jump and decided to learn how to remote view. His first session was so phenomenal that his outlook on life started to shift, when he realized we are ALL connected...

First session by the first inmate Melvin taught (as described in his letter above)
As Melvin settled into his new life and routine, he became increasingly curious about the deep reasons for his fate.
He was sharing his cell with a tall African American Muslim man who was towering him and many others with his strong and determined presence.
Melvin wrote to me that one incident happened very early on that set the tone for the rest of his time behind bars.
A young man came to Melvin and taunted him, trying to provoke him to fight. For many obvious reasons, Melvin refused to engage the young man. As retribution, the young man stole Melvin's book, in the open, for everyone to see, as to say, "my rules!"
Melvin's cellmate, the tall African American Muslim man, stood up and grabbed the young convict and pinned him to the wall saying, "I don't like no one messing with Doc".
From that moment, no one messed with Melvin.
However, Melvin was baffled as to why this young man would steal his books. So he tried to approach him...
And that's when it all began... What you perceive becomes reality... Find out what happened next in the two attached letters.

CHRONICLES OF A REBIRTH
In 2014, the unimaginable happened to my friend Dr. Melvin Morse. Dr. Morse, best-selling author of Closer to the light, beloved pediatrician hailed and voted by his peers as one of "America's Best Doctors" in 1997-98,2001-2002 and 2005-2006, and who appeared on Oprah and Larry King to talk about his books and about his extensive research on near death experiences in children, the same Dr. Morse who had published many scientific articles and papers in trusted medical journals, was sent to prison for almost three years. While this is neither the place, nor the goal to discuss the matter, it is the right avenue to share with you what unfolded from this harsh and stunning time.
Before Dr. Morse was incarcerated, he and I had been working on developing the Spiritual Sight technique, a method of remote viewing that would have many applications in everyday life. From finding a lost piece of jewelry to connecting with the "soul" of an illness in a patient, Spiritual Sight had become the focus of our joint research project.
Dr. Morse knew that there was an important development that could arise from the practice of Spiritual Sight, because of the many different aspects involved in the method of remote viewing. One of these key aspects was meditation.
When Dr. Morse started serving his sentence in the Sussex Correctional Institution, he and I, immediately began exchanging letters.
Life in prison became a very difficult reality that he had to accept: a constant feeling of insecurity, unknown surroundings, the inside “rules” between inmates were a few of the many harsh daily facts he had to deal with. For someone who had been a doctor helping others all his life, this transitional state required that he dug really deep for the LOVE that he needed to express, in order to continue, day to day living without falling into despair.
I wrote my very first letter to him on April 14th 2014, about a week after his first day in prison. Although I was still in shock at the news of him being incarcerated, I remember vividly thinking I needed to show him support and encouragement, rather than pity.
Writing to him, I started to think of the things he could do to occupy his mind and heart for the next 2.5 years; and as crazy and surreal as it seemed, the only thing I could think of was for him to teach meditation and Spiritual Sight to his fellow inmates. And that's exactly what I wrote him.
The rest is history… Or more precisely our history. Follow the unfolding story of the most unlikely research to happen right here:
