160-Love Poet

 

“If the Song of Solomon was the only sacred text, what would religion look like?

Love is not just a sentiment tossed around on Valentine cards. It’s not just the start of a relationship. Love is the greatest power in the universe and its gravitational pull is always towards the unity of all things.

In today’s episode I show how this amazing love poem is a microcosm, can help us see a much bigger work in the macrocosm. Join me now as we see beyond human love and sexuality into an amazing illustration of the love of God.

159- Sex Poet

 

“Does talking about sexuality make you uncomfortable?”

Human sexuality has tremendous power. So often we see this power in its corrupted form and it causes countless problems in our world.  In today’s podcast we will explore the two biggest contaminators of our sexuality (fundamentalism and secularism) and compare them to some very explicit sexual poetry.

Join me now as we see beyond our sexuality and capture a glimpse of a gift that is largely left unopened.

Lepers and Liberty

 

“How can you tell if you are actually free?”

Personal liberty is a core desire of every human being. Yet in our journey to find it, most of us settle for captivity.  Is that you?

In today’s broadcast we look at a parable that charts the course to freedom along a very unsuspecting route. From the view of an outcast, captivity holds promise, but in the long view, the trade off is severe. Join me now as we follow one leper who begins to see beyond everything.

91- The Wealth of the Rich

 

Wealth and poverty are not about money. Those who make this assumption, almost always run into problems. In this podcast and post I will show how wealth is decision making skill and the most wealthy person in any environment is the one with the most decision making skill. Sacred texts have a name for this decision making skill and it’s called wisdom. Tune in to learn how wisdom is not the accumulation of knowledge but the skill to use the knowledge we possess. Furthermore, I provide the single greatest solution to eradicate economic suffering that our world has ever seen. Our engagement in this solution is not optional, and our suffering correlates directly to our disengagement.

 

62- A Flute and a Dirge

 

There is always more to every story. Each moment is multidimensional. Nonphysical reality is constantly bearing in on our physical world. Inspiration births action, ideas become things. In this post we examine our ability to see these two dimensions and tie it to our sense of apathy toward seeing. Why do we prefer to live anesthetized to reality and insist on being disappointed? We examine an allegory that depicts the wisdom to get beyond our externals.
