275-Part 5-Convergence and Integration

“What does it mean to have our lives orbiting around a single axis?

In today’s podcast and post we continue our exploration of Flow and introduce a metaphor which can illuminate why we live with so much pain, frustration, and confusion.

Join me now as we see beyond the events of life into the constellation of dis-integrated orbits which make up our lives and gain insight into how to bring them all into alignment.

274- Part 4- Flow and Rhythm

“You know life has a rhythm, but can you see what is behind it?”

Common wisdom says things like: “Life is full of ups and downs.” Or “ You’ve got to go with the flow.” While this is true, how many of us are able to truly understand what it means. In today’s podcast and post we examine the Rhythm of life and I offer an ancient strategy to understand and design our futures.

Join me now as we see beyond the pain and dark places in our lives, and learn that life isn’t full of ups and downs, we are….by design..

273-Part 3-Flow and Drift

“Do you know the difference between Flow and Drift?”

As we gain a new understanding of FLOW, we discover that flow is not a state of mental focus, nor any sustained state of effort at all. In today’s podcast and post we look closer at the experience of Drift. Since flow is not a binary state, drift cannot be the opposite of flow. So what is it?

Join me now as we see beyond the countless wave-forms of the world and gain insight into our life as a wave-form and then discover how flow is not reduced to a mere matter of effort.

272-Part 2-What is FLOW and Why it Matters

(Part 1 contains no audio but is found HERE )

“Are you in a state of FLOW?”

That’s a loaded question. The question itself presupposes a binary definition of flow. Most of the world thinks they are either in or out of flow. In today’s podcast and post, we continue our New Year tutorial on the Way of Flow, and discuss why the common definition of flow is so problematic.

Join me now as we see beyond all the hype of life-coaches, psychologists and spiritual directors, and consider what it means that every single one of us is constantly relating to flow.

271- 2020 A Year of Suppressing the Truth

“Are you guilty of suppressing the truth?”

Before you get defensive let me just say that we all share this guilt. In 2020’s final podcast and post I’d like to deconstruct the year by looking at how we have all suppressed the truth. What others are calling unprecedented events I believe are simply the natural outcropping of suppressing the truth.

Join me now as we see beyond the headlines of 2020 and touch the source of humanity’s truth problem. Perhaps, if we are willing to make a change, 2021 and beyond will be much better.

270-Cringing and Bowing: Christological Dissonance

“When someone mentions Jesus, does it make you want to cringe or bow?”

In today’s Christmas Eve podcast and post we examine the polarizing effect that Jesus has on the world. During the Christmas season, people are celebrating the birth of the Savior of the World, yet our world seems to be getting worse in so many ways. Does this mean the savior isn’t real? Or is something else happening?

Join me now as we see beyond our Christological dissonance at the world’s most unconventional way of fixing everything that has ever gone wrong. Perhaps there are yet more reasons to bow.

269- Skimming Over Advent

“Does anybody care about Advent?”

While our churches are talking about Advent, the rest of the world has long abandoned the liturgical calendar. The Christmas season is now commercial and has overridden our season of anticipation, but it’s even worse than that.

In today’s podcast and post, I recycle a post from years ago to refresh our consideration that the church is no longer anticipating the Savior of the World, but a dread warrior who is coming back to destroy rather than love his enemies.

Join me now as we see beyond our anticipation of the “End Times” and explore why we stopped believing that God will arrive through each one of us.

268- Your Beloved Cult

“Are you under the influence of a cult?”

In today’s podcast and post we explore why no one in a cult believes they are in a cult. Then as we widen the definition of cult we will learn how in one sense, we all participate in cultish behaviors.

Join me now as we see beyond the religious cults which make all the headlines and go deeper into that thing which we believe is giving us the truth. If we gain the eyes to see, we’ll discover we are not as free as we think ourselves to be.

267-Subject Object Thanksgiving

Are you UNDER-THANKING this Thanksgiving?”

In today’s Thanksgiving podcast and post we take a deeper look at Gratitude it’s stream back toward the headwaters. While it’s good to be thankful for circumstances, possessions and people in our lives, the way in which we are thankful is far more vital than those things for which we are thankful.

Join me now as we seebeyondthe Golden Rule and gain a glimpse of what it means to graduate beyond Subject-Object Thanksgiving.

266- The Prophetic side of Love

“Where are the modern-day prophets? Why don’t religious, political, or institutional leaders have the vision and voice to bring the world toward healing?”

In today’s podcast and post, we consider the words of Zephaniah from the inside out. Forget all your religious frameworks, theologies and dogma’s, they can’t help us here. Lay aside your hope in political reform, it’s impotent here.

Join me now, if you can, as we see beyond our surface level existence and begin experiencing the underbelly of Love where prophetic vision allows us to see ultimate reality through the many distractions of life.
