242- We are ALL being Played

“What do you think is happening in our world?”

If you think we are watching our communities react to the pain of social injustice, look closer. Both sides are being played like a well-tuned instrument. The pressure to pit us against one another has never been stronger, but if you think the reason is political, your still not seeing it.

In today’s podcast and post I will unveil the pernicious assault on the human soul and the only way to stop it. Join me now for a podcast that none of us will like as we see beyond our pain and anger into the power behind the whole mess.

Lockdown Exposes What’s Real This Easter

“Do you really want things to go back to how they were? I don’t.”

I told you last week, we’d be in this for a while and now the novelty is wearing off. So many memes and GIF’s circulating about how we are getting on each other’s nerves. While good for a laugh, the underlying truth must be exposed. In today’s podcast and post I will prove that the lockdown is not creating relationship problems, it is exposing them.

Join me now as we take a sobering look beyond the issues at home and into our communities of faith. This Palm Sunday, let’s hope the real Easter emerges from the inside out. If it does, the world won’t have to go back to how it was.

228-The Healing Practice- Part 3: Mind & Being

In this episode I conclude my description of the healing practice by exploring the point when we get to the end of our words and can finally abide, sit still, and be in and with Divine presence. This portal will allow all comers to see just how everything is possible and beautiful. It gives us just enough of a glimpse that we can re-enter the work of each day with a completely new disposition and attitude.

227- The Healing Practice-Part 2: Breath & Healing

Trying to capture all that glimpses of what goes into my practices takes more time than I thought. In part two we look at how breath, wind or Spirit is a grounding principle and how I use it to initiate the flow of displacement within my life. I explore the dangers of getting the flow in the wrong direction and how to bring others and our larger concerns of the world into this dynamic exchange.

226- The Healing Practice-Part 1: Intro & Posture

“Is there something we can do that will bring all forms of healing into our world?”

Yes, but we probably won’t want to do it. Throughout human history, within all sectors of society, contemplative and meditative prayer practices have, and continue to me, portals through which healing has emerged within the lives of people. It has transformed ancient societies and still does to this day.

In the concluding episodes of our series on healing, I will take you as a visitor along with me as I explain the practice that I imperfectly employ within my life. I’ll share the challenges, pitfalls, and transformation from opening up to the Divine. Join me now as we see beyond religious ritual and learn how everyday people can tap into and join the flow of healing within our lives and world.

225- Healing our Finances

“Is poverty and debt a social or economic problem?”

Clearly, the answer is yes, in part. When it comes to money, most people have no clue what they are doing, and that includes most governments. In today’s podcast and post, I will share my journey from poverty and debt into financial liberation. I will show how our financial struggles are byproducts of the real problem… our thinking.

Join me now as we see beyond the common mindset about money and learn how healing and liberation is available to all of us, starting today.

224-Healing our Relationships

“Are relationships really that complicated and hard to fix? Maybe not!”

In today’s podcast and post we continue our series on healing as we take a deeper look at what it takes to heal relationships. It turns out that healing our relationships isn’t so hard so long as both parties adopt this one strategy. If either party lacks this vital awareness, then relationships always struggle.

Join me now as we learn to see beyond our frustrated relationships into the single biggest reason why they all break down and take a closer look at why we don’t really want to fix them.

222- Healing our Minds with Wisdom

“What is the secret to healing our minds? Is it therapy? Is it medication?” Think Again.

In today’s podcast and post we continue our exploration of healing and focus today on our minds. Is a healthy mind focused on our emotions, our memories, or the things we think about? I don’t think so. We’ll discover healing our minds is not about separating out the pieces but integrating them all together.

Join me now as we see beyond the fragmented problems and learn how wisdom brings all the pieces together into a whole. Healing our minds isn’t so much “what “we think, but first about “how” with think. 

221-When the Body Won’t Heal

Have you ever pleaded with God for bodily healing and your prayer went unanswered?”

Nothing produces more unbelief than unanswered prayers, especially those for bodily healing. The disposition of the heart which arises from unbelief turns us into the Veruca Salt which demands her father grant her every request immediately. 

In today’s podcast and post, I will explain why if we are asking for bodily healing, why it may not come right away. Staying in faith is not a cop-out, but the only way to gain the necessary precondition for transformative healing.

Join me now as we see beyond what we thought was the unanswered prayer.

220-Healing our Bodies through Faith

“Is it reasonable to expect healing when science has concluded that healing is not possible?

In today’s post and podcast, we go a bit deeper into our exploration of healing, by examining the role of faith in healing our bodies. Quantum science has forced the rewriting of empirical frameworks for understanding our world and moves us incrementally closer to the world depicted in sacred texts.

Join me now as I show the similarities between quantum entanglement and prayer, and take us beyond everything into their single biggest difference. That difference, may just be the reason why faith changes everything, even science.
