“Are people really stupid? Or is there more to the story?
In today’s podcast, post and video I share a few metaphors which I hope will illuminate a new perspective on reality. The way we each frame reality is often too small, to rigid, and reveals that we have no real understanding.
Join me now as we see beyond all that we have not understood, and discover why this opens up a new way to live within a far bigger reality.
Why do people love the outdoors and being out in nature? When a baby is born or when a death occurs, what is it about these moments that causes us to regain our perspective in life?
In today’s podcast and post we will endeavor to gaze beyond the surface level and see beyond everything as we look into these existential moments and discover that these are ground zero for the most amazing Event Horizon of our lives.
“Does spiritual awareness really make a difference in our lives?”
Today we return to our ongoing series of Psalms Greatest Hits with a look at the Twenty Seventh Psalm. In our hurried lives of distraction, it’s common for modern people to ignore, dismiss, or avoid stillness and reflection upon our spiritual condition. This enlarges the amount of emotional pain that we must suppress leaving many of us with a sense of anger or despair just below the surface of our lives.
Join me now as we see beyond everything and follow David’s pointing finger toward the unseen world. We will take a few tips from David and perhaps we can become honest like him and allow all the subterranean reality to bubble to the surface, where we can give it the attention it requires.
What did Jesus mean when he said “I have overcome the world.”?
Today we conclude our series entitled “Famous Last Words” with a look at Jesus last bit of advice prior to his final prayer for his disciples. We can all identify so easily with his statement that we would have trouble in this world, so why can’t we agree on what it means to overcome the world?
Join me now as Jesus offers the most liberating advice to all who will hear it and learn why his path to peace is the very opposite of religion.
“Do people really believe they are better off with Jesus having left the world?
Modern faith systems are always talking about how they want Jesus to come back and to judge the world, and exact vengeance on those who don’t believe. In today’s podcast and post we explore Jesus’ clear message to his disciples that it was to their advantage that he goes away.
Join me now as we see beyond our tribal beliefs and rediscover what it means that the Holy Spirit has been sent to convict Religion and State regarding Sin, Righteousness and Judgement. Turns out, we all have a job to do.
“What is Easter all about? Culturally it’s a huge religious holiday, but is that the real Easter Experience?
In today’s podcast and post we pause from our series to unpack the Easter experience. As usual, this podcast is going to take us in a completely different direction from everything else going on this morning.
Join me now, if you can, to be still, quiet and not clinging to anything, and you will see beyond everything, beyond the distraction and noise, and array of thoughts and emotions. Perhaps if you do, you may have a genuine Easter experience.
“How does modern religion reconcile it’s push for people to become “churchgoers” with Jesus warning that his message will get you kicked out of religion?” The two trajectories couldn’t be more opposite?
In today’s podcast and post we continue our series on Jesus’ famous last words with a look at his warning that his followers will be put out of the synagogues. What does Jesus mean when he says that religious people will hate you because they hated him first? Join me now as the sobriety of these verses presses against our true affiliation toward either the container of religion or its contents.
In today’s podcast and post we continue our series exploring Jesus’ famous last words with a look at his statement that we are “not of the world.” Did Jesus mean we are from another planet or dimension, or is his point a bit more down to earth?
Join me now as we reveal why being over-identified with the many institutions of life is so destructive to humanity and results in the loss of our true self. Come and see beyond everything and learn why the easy solution is something most people are unlikely to consider.
“What is the greatest gesture of love? Is it an expensive gift? Is it a kind word? According to Jesus, it is laying your life down for your friends.
In today’s podcast and post we continue in our series of Jesus’ Famous Last Words as we look at the love which is needed to pay the ultimate price. Our world is full of people who will lay their lives down in the name of duty, or for a cause.
Join me now as we explore what is behind the kind of love that values others so much that one is willing to die for them.
