On this episode, we take a deep dive and look at one scene from Mozart's Magic Flute, the quintet from Act 1.

What's up to my luscious leopards and tassel-tipped tanagers! Welcome back to the BNP everyone and thank you for joining! This episode is slightly abridged and coming out early because I am going camping this weekend up on the Utah-AZ border. I'm stoked. :) But enough about me. This episode we welcome back esteemed writer and historian Dr. Ken Hammond PhD. Dr. Hammond is a professor of East Asian history and founder of the Confucius Institute at New Mexico St. University. He is also an activist for Pivot to Peace: https://peacepivot.org/.Dr. Hammond continues our deep dive into the rise of modern China since the 1949 Communist Revolution. We tackle the years of the so-called Cultural Revolution, including its internal facets, flaws and unreported benefits. Importantly, it is a fair and nuanced assessment of an event that is universally demonized and exaggerated in the West. We then touch on China's guiding ideology as it has evolved over the years, and how the presidency of Xi Jinping has signaled a noticeable shift away from Capitalist oligarchic corruption and towards the Socialist vision that animated the revolution. China's anti-corruption campaign is working, and they are leading the world in the field of green and renewable technology. To save the planet, we as Americans need to work together with China whether we like it or not, and sabre rattling from the Pentagon is both unproductive and dangerous. Finally, Dr. Hammond recounts his experience at Kent St. University on the very day in 1970 when National Guardsmen opened fire on students, killing 4, paralyzing 1 and injuring many others. Fascinating to have a firsthand account of that horrible day. Thank you for listening and supporting the BNP! Spread the word and tell a friend!

Okay, creators - it's time to engage your left brain. Because today, we're talking about Google Analytics for small business. But don't worry, my guest today is a master at explaining things in an easy-to-understand way. Chris Mercer, the co-founder of Measurement Marketing, is a sought-after measurement marketing expert. He's been helping marketers, marketing teams, and agencies plan out what's important to measure in their marketing, build measurement systems (using https://tagmanager.google.com/#/home (Google Tag Manager) and https://analytics.google.com/analytics/web/#/ (Google Analytics)), create actionable dashboard reports, and finally use those reports to forecast and optimize their marketing results. Mercer has a knack for teaching and is known for his ability to simplify even the most complex ideas for his audience. He speaks at some of the top conferences in the industry such as Traffic & Conversion, Social Media Marketing World, and Content Jam. BUSINESS BUILDING INSIGHTS Make sure that the conversation you're having is relevant to your users. And the only way to make sure that you're saying something that resonates with them and meets their expectation is if you get really good at listening. The market will absolutely tell you if they like something or if they don't. You just have to get good at https://giftbizunwrapped.com/episodes/sonyapaz (asking questions). Get good enough to get going. Then come back and make it better later. Give yourself permission to be where you are no matter what. All About Google Analytics For Small Business The idea has nothing really to do about https://giftbizunwrapped.com/episodes/lynnesomerman (the numbers). It's the idea that we are measuring for a conversation. Measurement marketing is about listening to your users. And then based on that feedback, adjust your marketing accordingly to keep that conversation going. As a marketer, know what you can improve and change. Make sure the conversation goes in the direction that we want it to go in. The beauty of analytics is you go there with a specific purpose in mind. Don't be afraid to start slow and easy. Like anything, it's a muscle you need to build. Cave Mode - just get started. It's okay if it's super basic - you have to start somewhere. The goal is to practice asking questions. Valley of Visibility - you've got some things set up, it's not perfect, but now you can start to improve. The Summit - you've built up your muscle and you understand the strategy and tools. Now you can see everything. Framework to get started with Google Analytics Start with this BEFORE you actually set anything up. First, you plan things out. Then you build things out. And then you act upon the stuff that you've built Plan - Start with 3-5 questions you want to answer. What https://giftbizunwrapped.com/episodes/craft-show-selection-and-results (results) do you want to measure? How did you get those results? Don't get overwhelmed with a million different questions - just pick a couple good enough to get started. Example: I want to measure how much I sold and how did I make those sales. Build - What information do you need to collect to get these answers? What behaviors do you need to track to get the answers to your questions? Example: Your cart software provides the number of sales, average units, etc. Google Analytics shows you how people got to the cart. Act - What actions will you take with the answers you collect?" Example: If I make 10 sales from my Pinterest campaign in a week, I'll scale up the ad. If I don't, I'll revamp the ad or try something different like Facebook ads. Run through the process, make adjustments based on what you've learned, and go through it again. Every time you do it, you're strengthening your measurement muscle and honing in on the questions you need to ask to get actionable answers. Be sure to tune into this full...

Without the right manifestation methods , whatever you're doing is most likely a lost cause. In this episode, Cassandra Bodzak joins us to discuss her book Manifestation through Meditation. She explains why meditation is a key component of manifesting. Most importantly, she details the four steps you need to go through to manifest your dreams into reality. Cassandra also shares inspiring stories of how she did the work to attract the things she wanted. If you want to learn the right manifestation methods, then tune in to this episode!

Use promo code: loved Episode Highlights Cassandra's Book-Writing Process The whole writing process was fast for her, as she felt that it channeled through her. She started writing in March of 2021. She is an embodiment of the results of manifestation, as she manifested the book on her birthday this year. Manifesting Her Grandmother's Gift Cassandra's grandmother, who she considers her best friend and go-to person, passed away recently. On her first birthday without her grandmother, Cassandra expressed that she expected a gift undeniably from her. She joined a meditation retreat wherein she was able to plug into source and divine energy. She took it as a gift from her grandmother. On that same day, she got an email from a publisher. She has been trying to pitch the book in different ways, but it just wasn't ever right. Cassandra believes that her grandmother pulled some strings for her to make that happen. Because of that, she was able to finish the book in a week and a half. Manifesting through Meditation From working with clients, Cassandra noticed how most people are skipping meditation when attempting manifestation methods. Due to the manifestation catchphrase culture, many believe that manifestation methods without spiritual work are enough. In her book, she provided a four-step process to guide readers to grow in meditation when manifesting. She details 100 different meditations to guide you in this process. Listen to the full episode to hear more! The First Step: Remembering Yourself People tend to skip this step, not realizing that without it, the process won't work. The primary purpose of meditation is for you to remember who you are. When you do, you remember that you are a divine creator, have infinite potential, and limitless possibilities for your life. This step is crucial because we manifest from the infinite within us, not from our human personality. Tune in to the full episode to hear how Cassandra practices this step! The Second Step: Connecting to Your Soul Once you remember who you are, you connect to your soul's desires. These are different from your human desires, which are usually swayed by peer pressure. Our desires are like divine seeds planted in our souls that we are meant to grow. You can find your soul's desires through meditation, where you bare yourself of external pressures and go into your heart and essence. We also have to be careful of getting attached to how we want a desire to happen. The Third Step: Reflection This step involves looking at your wounds and limiting beliefs. You have to sit down with yourself and why you have yet to have what you manifest. A lot of people hate this step because it makes them evaluate and reassess their life and decisions. Cassandra's book has a whole process on how to help you do fear inventory, work through them, and heal. When you start shifting your mindset, you get to see the other side of everything, where more things are available to you. The limiting beliefs we put on ourselves keep us from manifesting more abundance. The Last Step: Quantum Embodiment Quantum embodiment is the step wherein you believe that the thing you're manifesting has already happened. To get to this level, you should not be restrained by your own beliefs. You don't have to wait for it to happen. Act like you already got it, and you will attract it even faster. In this step, you have to ask yourself: How would the next-level version of me do life? Cassandra's Personal Experience of Quantum Embodiment One of the biggest things that Cassandra manifested was being in a cooking show on ABC. She used to post amateur videos of herself cooking on YouTube because she enjoyed it. That is how a producer of the show found her. She also manifested her books. She was already talking about it to her friends even if the writing had not started yet. Cassandra only started writing the book when she got the deal. But, it didn't matter because she was energetically sending the message that she was willing to show up. Whenever she wants something to happen, she acts as if it happened already. That's what she did when she set up a home studio, which paved the way for her acting career. Rosie's Manifestation Before, Rosie wanted to do public speaking. However, she didn't really enjoy being on camera. She enrolled herself in a monologue acting class where she read a poetry book in front of everyone. She was terrified, which speaks to how manifesting takes hard work and not just feeling your fantasy. The class helped her feel more confident and empowered in all areas of her personal and professional life. Looking back, Rosie thinks that class was what she needed to create the podcast. Everything Happens for a Reason Cassandra suggests that we should be open and intuitive about other people's suggestions. We think that our journey to our desire is linear. Sometimes we have to trust that the dots are going to connect. Our desires may be guiding us to another thing which we have yet to conceive. How Cassandra Feels Radically Loved She feels radically loved through meditation, which allows her to have a dialogue with her ‘divine support squad'. She ends up seeing and feeling their support as she moves through every day. 5 Powerful Quotes from This Episode [07:29] “I believe that manifestation is something that you have to not only cultivate in a spiritual sense, but also, it's something that you think. It's something that you say. It's something that you do.” [08:55] “There's this illusion that you can snap your fingers, manifest stuff without actually doing the spiritual work that requires.” [11:56] “When you remember who we are, then we remember that we're divine creators; we remember that we have infinite potential, that we have limitless possibilities for our life.” [12:18] “We don't manifest from our human personality, right? We manifest from the infinite within us.” [32:15] “It could be the journey that having that desire brings us on actually leads us to something that we couldn't even conceive at that moment because it wasn't even available in our consciousness yet.” About Cassandra Cassandra Bodzak is a thought leader and global meditation and wellness teacher. She devotes her life to helping wonder women make peace with their bodies, quiet their minds, and reconnect with their souls. That's why she founded an online community about mind-soul-body support. She is the author of the bestselling book, Eat with Intention: Recipes and Meditations for a Life that Lights You Up. Her latest book guides individuals through manifestation methods involving meditation. Cassandra is also known as the happy, healthy living guru on ABC's The Taste with Anthony Bourdain.

This week Coach Brendan Suhr is joined by Paul Mills, Head Coach of the Oral Roberts University. Mills has engineered a remarkable resurgence for the ORU program. Last season, his Golden Eagles reached the NCAA tournament for the first time under his leadership while providing a memorable run as they were the second-ever No. 15 seed to reach the NCAA Sweet 16 after taking down No. 2 seed Ohio State and No. 7 seed Florida on the national stage. The win over the seventh-ranked Buckeyes was just the fourth time in Golden Eagles history to take down a top 10 team. ORU also claimed its first Summit League tournament championship and NCAA appearance since 2008 winning three games in three days in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, finishing with an 18-11 overall record and a 10-5 mark in league play. In this episode, Coach Mills discusses why he felt called to coaching, the sacrifices he and his family have made that have allowed him to rise through the coaching profession, takeaways from each stop along his coaching journey, how he has built his ORU program and the reward he and his players felt with this year's success after shared experiences battling adversity in the early years, highlights from his team's NCAA tournament run, and several tips that are useful for coaches at all stages of their career.

The arrival of the Delta variant really was a massive curveball that few experts saw coming. It ripped through populations overseas and quickly punched holes in Fortress Australia. It especially challenged our public health response with its incredible infectiousness and has taken hold in NSW, Victoria and ACT. But how did Delta come into existence in the first place? And as more and more of us are vaccinated, what might come next as the SARS-CoV-2 virus continues to evolve? On today's Coronacast, a very special guest explains all.

The ACT Party's fully in support of moving towards quarantining people at home, and in fact would like it extended further. Covid-19 Response Minister Chris Hipkins says low risk cases who can isolate safely at home may be able to do so within the next week.

Matt & Scott discuss how to behave properly in a gym, because to many don't respect the equipment or the people around them. Don't be that guy (or gal). Take care of the equipment and put it back where you got it. Treat the equipment with the respect it's due. Wipe down your bench and similar equipment. Put the weights away properly (right location, and lips out on the weight tree). If you're in a big box gym, don't give others unsolicited advice. If they ask for advice, give it--if you're a coach, this person might become a client. If you receive advice, don't act like you want it. You can be polite, but if that person gives it the second time, that person needs to know you don't want or need your advice. Headphones can be a useful tool in gyms like this to tell people you're not interested in talking to them. If there is a chance of good coaching, however--if you're in a good gym--then don't wear the headphones. Enjoy the fact that you're in a gym where you can receive excellent coaching. Don't break up the blocks of chalk--they should be block. Don't use baby powder. Act like a professional in the gym. You know what you're doing. You know why you're there. Act like it.

How do you teach your child to stay on the covenant path and make and keep covenants? That was a question mother and youth leader, Sharla Goettl, heard a lot. Writing a book with help for these questions was never on Sharla's radar but after repeatedly being compelled by the Spirit, Sharla jumped in and wrote Spiritual Resilience: Leading Our Youth to Go and Do, to add her perspective for parents who want to help their children be spiritually resilient. In this interview, Sharla shares how she was guided to write about Nephi's example of building spiritual resilience and what we can learn from him about how to teach our children. She shares how the covenants we make in the temple and the accompanying promises we receive from Christ give parents a framework to teach youth how to have more resilient faith. Sharla also talks about how Nephi knew Christ had an individual path for him that was leading him to a better place and how each of us can have our own personal assurance of this as well. To wrap up, Sharla concludes that “All the credit goes to Him.” Her commitment to the Lord and desire to help parents understand covenants and spiritual resilience and in turn teach their children is remarkable. Sharla's thoughts in this interview are extremely helpful to anyone who wants to understand covenants more fully. Journal Questions One of the questions Sharla frequently heard from parents was this: Can I trust Christ with the personal details of my life and of my teen's life? What areas of your life could use a little more trust from Christ? How can you turn these personal details over to Him? What are the ways you have seen God fulfill his promises to you through your covenants? How can you share how you've seen God fulfill promises with your children or others? Act on the ways you feel prompted to share. Sharla discussed reimagining “symbols of righteousness” such as the iron rod, straight and narrow path, and taking the sacrament. She shared that we can each seek for our own interpretation of what symbols mean. What do you think of when you think of “symbols of righteousness.” When you read scriptures, ponder and journal about these symbols, what do you feel the Spirit telling you they mean? Write your thoughts.

A lot of the discussion about COVID lately has been on the big outbreaks in NSW, Victoria and the ACT, and less about states that don't have current outbreaks. But as states like WA, Queensland, South Australia, Tasmania and the Northern Territory start to plan their border reopenings, it also means COVID will eventually find its way in. So what can the smaller and still COVID free states expect in coming months? Will cases skyrocket in a highly vaccinated population? And will people there have to get used to restrictions that currently don't apply? Also on today's show: * What does full vaccination mean for getting (or not getting) long COVID? * We keep hearing the risk for under 12s is very low. Could you please clarify the best understanding of the hospitalisation, death, and long COVID risk for children under 12s?

While COVID-19 is currently in two of Australia's states and the ACT, the reality is eventually it will get everywhere. And eventually, the theory goes, COVID-19 will infect everyone. Vaccination will help stop the vast majority of people getting severe symptoms which may put them in hospital, but there'll always be people who can't or won't be immunised. So does getting COVID-19 after being vaccinated help with longer term immunity? And therefore if you're fully vaccinated, is it worth trying to get infected on purpose? Also on today's show: * How many people don't get their second dose? * What might happen now in NSW?

Conspiracy theories are no longer the conversation currency of weirdos and society's outer fringes. They've gone mainstream. And one of the people responsible for this is the subject of our latest show. Alex Jones started out as an oddball on Austin's Public Access Television but ended up being a national celebrity of sorts thanks to his never-ending fountain of bullshit. Is he just a harmless nutball that sincerely believes all the insanity that he peddles? Or is there something darker to his brand of “entertainment”?

We're happy to have Aaron & Brigitte as the guests of our 50th episode. Yes! Act 50.

When we're faced with tough situations or unfair circumstances, our tendency is to fight against them. We think about all the reasons those things shouldn't be happening, rather than accept them for what they are.Unfortunately, refusing to accept a situation creates a lot of unnecessary suffering. This is something I often see as a therapist. This is where radical acceptance comes into play. Research shows it's a great way to begin addressing a situation (and the emotions) head-on so you can move forward. In this Friday Fix, I share how radical acceptance works, what researchers have found about the benefits, and how to start practicing it in your own life.

NSW will take its first step out of lockdown on Monday, and it'll be slightly bigger than expected. The state's new Premier has made some small changes in relation to what fully vaccinated people will be able to do in just a few days. So what can we expect to case numbers, vaccination rates, hospitalisation and ICU admissions? And what about the rest of the country - like Victoria and ACT - which will be taking the same steps as NSW in coming weeks and months? On today's Coronacast, a very special guest to help talks us through all the data.
Possibly the hardest day we will have all month. Stay locked in and assess your progress so far. Old patterns are prevalent so ACT as the person you want to become NOW!! Lock in!! Much love have a great day!! ENJOY!
Psalms and Wisdom: Psalm 67 Psalm 67 (Listen) Make Your Face Shine upon Us To the choirmaster: with stringed instruments. A Psalm. A Song. 67 May God be gracious to us and bless us and make his face to shine upon us, Selah2 that your way may be known on earth, your saving power among all nations.3 Let the peoples praise you, O God; let all the peoples praise you! 4 Let the nations be glad and sing for joy, for you judge the peoples with equity and guide the nations upon earth. Selah5 Let the peoples praise you, O God; let all the peoples praise you! 6 The earth has yielded its increase; God, our God, shall bless us.7 God shall bless us; let all the ends of the earth fear him! (ESV) Pentateuch and History: 1 Kings 2 1 Kings 2 (Listen) David's Instructions to Solomon 2 When David's time to die drew near, he commanded Solomon his son, saying, 2 “I am about to go the way of all the earth. Be strong, and show yourself a man, 3 and keep the charge of the LORD your God, walking in his ways and keeping his statutes, his commandments, his rules, and his testimonies, as it is written in the Law of Moses, that you may prosper in all that you do and wherever you turn, 4 that the LORD may establish his word that he spoke concerning me, saying, ‘If your sons pay close attention to their way, to walk before me in faithfulness with all their heart and with all their soul, you shall not lack1 a man on the throne of Israel.' 5 “Moreover, you also know what Joab the son of Zeruiah did to me, how he dealt with the two commanders of the armies of Israel, Abner the son of Ner, and Amasa the son of Jether, whom he killed, avenging2 in time of peace for blood that had been shed in war, and putting the blood of war3 on the belt around his4 waist and on the sandals on his feet. 6 Act therefore according to your wisdom, but do not let his gray head go down to Sheol in peace. 7 But deal loyally with the sons of Barzillai the Gileadite, and let them be among those who eat at your table, for with such loyalty5 they met me when I fled from Absalom your brother. 8 And there is also with you Shimei the son of Gera, the Benjaminite from Bahurim, who cursed me with a grievous curse on the day when I went to Mahanaim. But when he came down to meet me at the Jordan, I swore to him by the LORD, saying, ‘I will not put you to death with the sword.' 9 Now therefore do not hold him guiltless, for you are a wise man. You will know what you ought to do to him, and you shall bring his gray head down with blood to Sheol.” The Death of David 10 Then David slept with his fathers and was buried in the city of David. 11 And the time that David reigned over Israel was forty years. He reigned seven years in Hebron and thirty-three years in Jerusalem. 12 So Solomon sat on the throne of David his father, and his kingdom was firmly established. Solomon's Reign Established 13 Then Adonijah the son of Haggith came to Bathsheba the mother of Solomon. And she said, “Do you come peacefully?” He said, “Peacefully.” 14 Then he said, “I have something to say to you.” She said, “Speak.” 15 He said, “You know that the kingdom was mine, and that all Israel fully expected me to reign. However, the kingdom has turned about and become my brother's, for it was his from the LORD. 16 And now I have one request to make of you; do not refuse me.” She said to him, “Speak.” 17 And he said, “Please ask King Solomon—he will not refuse you—to give me Abishag the Shunammite as my wife.” 18 Bathsheba said, “Very well; I will speak for you to the king.” 19 So Bathsheba went to King Solomon to speak to him on behalf of Adonijah. And the king rose to meet her and bowed down to her. Then he sat on his throne and had a seat brought for the king's mother, and she sat on his right. 20 Then she said, “I have one small request to make of you; do not refuse me.” And the king said to her, “Make your request, my mother, for I will not refuse you.” 21 She said, “Let Abishag the Shunammite be given to Adonijah your brother as his wife.” 22 King Solomon answered his mother, “And why do you ask Abishag the Shunammite for Adonijah? Ask for him the kingdom also, for he is my older brother, and on his side are Abiathar6 the priest and Joab the son of Zeruiah.” 23 Then King Solomon swore by the LORD, saying, “God do so to me and more also if this word does not cost Adonijah his life! 24 Now therefore as the LORD lives, who has established me and placed me on the throne of David my father, and who has made me a house, as he promised, Adonijah shall be put to death today.” 25 So King Solomon sent Benaiah the son of Jehoiada, and he struck him down, and he died. 26 And to Abiathar the priest the king said, “Go to Anathoth, to your estate, for you deserve death. But I will not at this time put you to death, because you carried the ark of the Lord GOD before David my father, and because you shared in all my father's affliction.” 27 So Solomon expelled Abiathar from being priest to the LORD, thus fulfilling the word of the LORD that he had spoken concerning the house of Eli in Shiloh. 28 When the news came to Joab—for Joab had supported Adonijah although he had not supported Absalom—Joab fled to the tent of the LORD and caught hold of the horns of the altar. 29 And when it was told King Solomon, “Joab has fled to the tent of the LORD, and behold, he is beside the altar,” Solomon sent Benaiah the son of Jehoiada, saying, “Go, strike him down.” 30 So Benaiah came to the tent of the LORD and said to him, “The king commands, ‘Come out.'” But he said, “No, I will die here.” Then Benaiah brought the king word again, saying, “Thus said Joab, and thus he answered me.” 31 The king replied to him, “Do as he has said, strike him down and bury him, and thus take away from me and from my father's house the guilt for the blood that Joab shed without cause. 32 The LORD will bring back his bloody deeds on his own head, because, without the knowledge of my father David, he attacked and killed with the sword two men more righteous and better than himself, Abner the son of Ner, commander of the army of Israel, and Amasa the son of Jether, commander of the army of Judah. 33 So shall their blood come back on the head of Joab and on the head of his descendants forever. But for David and for his descendants and for his house and for his throne there shall be peace from the LORD forevermore.” 34 Then Benaiah the son of Jehoiada went up and struck him down and put him to death. And he was buried in his own house in the wilderness. 35 The king put Benaiah the son of Jehoiada over the army in place of Joab, and the king put Zadok the priest in the place of Abiathar. 36 Then the king sent and summoned Shimei and said to him, “Build yourself a house in Jerusalem and dwell there, and do not go out from there to any place whatever. 37 For on the day you go out and cross the brook Kidron, know for certain that you shall die. Your blood shall be on your own head.” 38 And Shimei said to the king, “What you say is good; as my lord the king has said, so will your servant do.” So Shimei lived in Jerusalem many days. 39 But it happened at the end of three years that two of Shimei's servants ran away to Achish, son of Maacah, king of Gath. And when it was told Shimei, “Behold, your servants are in Gath,” 40 Shimei arose and saddled a donkey and went to Gath to Achish to seek his servants. Shimei went and brought his servants from Gath. 41 And when Solomon was told that Shimei had gone from Jerusalem to Gath and returned, 42 the king sent and summoned Shimei and said to him, “Did I not make you swear by the LORD and solemnly warn you, saying, ‘Know for certain that on the day you go out and go to any place whatever, you shall die'? And you said to me, ‘What you say is good; I will obey.' 43 Why then have you not kept your oath to the LORD and the commandment with which I commanded you?” 44 The king also said to Shimei, “You know in your own heart all the harm that you did to David my father. So the LORD will bring back your harm on your own head. 45 But King Solomon shall be blessed, and the throne of David shall be established before the LORD forever.” 46 Then the king commanded Benaiah the son of Jehoiada, and he went out and struck him down, and he died. So the kingdom was established in the hand of Solomon.

I placed you;4 you were on the holy mountain of God; in the midst of the stones of fire you walked.15 You were blameless in your ways from the day you were created, till unrighteousness was found in you.16 In the abundance of your trade you were filled with violence in your midst, and you sinned; so I cast you as a profane thing from the mountain of God, and I destroyed you,5 O guardian cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire.17 Your heart was proud because of your beauty; you corrupted your wisdom for the sake of your splendor. I cast you to the ground; I exposed you before kings, to feast their eyes on you.18 By the multitude of your iniquities, in the unrighteousness of your trade you profaned your sanctuaries; so I brought fire out from your midst; it consumed you, and I turned you to ashes on the earth in the sight of all who saw you.19 All who know you among the peoples are appalled at you; you have come to a dreadful end and shall be no more forever.” Prophecy Against Sidon 20 The word of the LORD came to me: 21 “Son of man, set your face toward Sidon, and prophesy against her 22 and say, Thus says the Lord GOD: “Behold, I am against you, O Sidon, and I will manifest my glory in your midst. And they shall know that I am the LORD when I execute judgments in her and manifest my holiness in her;23 for I will send pestilence into her, and blood into her streets; and the slain shall fall in her midst, by the sword that is against her on every side. Then they will know that I am the LORD. 24 “And for the house of Israel there shall be no more a brier to prick or a thorn to hurt them among all their neighbors who have treated them with contempt. Then they will know that I am the Lord GOD. Israel Gathered in Security 25 “Thus says the Lord GOD: When I gather the house of Israel from the peoples among whom they are scattered, and manifest my holiness in them in the sight of the nations, then they shall dwell in their own land that I gave to my servant Jacob. 26 And they shall dwell securely in it, and they shall build houses and plant vineyards. They shall dwell securely, when I execute judgments upon all their neighbors who have treated them with contempt.

While you preach against stealing, do you steal? 22 You who say that one must not commit adultery, do you commit adultery? You who abhor idols, do you rob temples? 23 You who boast in the law dishonor God by breaking the law. 24 For, as it is written, “The name of God is blasphemed among the Gentiles because of you.” 25 For circumcision indeed is of value if you obey the law, but if you break the law, your circumcision becomes uncircumcision. 26 So, if a man who is uncircumcised keeps the precepts of the law, will not his uncircumcision be regarded1 as circumcision? 27 Then he who is physically2 uncircumcised but keeps the law will condemn you who have the written code3 and circumcision but break the law. 28 For no one is a Jew who is merely one outwardly, nor is circumcision outward and physical. 29 But a Jew is one inwardly, and circumcision is a matter of the heart, by the Spirit, not by the letter. His praise is not from man but from God. God's Righteousness Upheld 3 Then what advantage has the Jew? Or what is the value of circumcision? 2 Much in every way. To begin with, the Jews were entrusted with the oracles of God. 3 What if some were unfaithful? Does their faithlessness nullify the faithfulness of God? 4 By no means! Let God be true though every one were a liar, as it is written, “That you may be justified in your words, and prevail when you are judged.” 5 But if our unrighteousness serves to show the righteousness of God, what shall we say? That God is unrighteous to inflict wrath on us? (I speak in a human way.) 6 By no means! For then how could God judge the world? 7 But if through my lie God's truth abounds to his glory, why am I still being condemned as a sinner? 8 And why not do evil that good may come?—as some people slanderously charge us with saying. Their condemnation is just. Footnotes  2:26 Or counted  2:27 Or is by nature  2:27 Or the letter (ESV)

Episode 453: 10 Steps to Increasing Productivity Creative Problem Solving from Brian Tracy Brain Tracy has always been a staple mentor of mine. I have followed his advice, wisdom and ideas for most of my life. He has spoken at my events and he has brought some amazing insights into how to truly expand and increase my productivity personally. In a time when we are all struggling a bit to “think outside the norm” and get creative with our business, relationships and finances, I felt it might be a great idea to lay out a framework to do just that. Brian Tracy has a 10 step approach to solving any problem with creativity and unique perspective. I hope this will help you take your productivity to a whole new level. 1) Change Your Language About The Problem From Negative To Positive I've talked about starting from “solutions” on past podcasts and this just reinforces that idea. When you use the word “problem” it represents a negative. Using words like “challenge” or “opportunity” is a much better way to program your mind for the positive. 2) Define The Situation Or Problem Clearly Too often we start dealing with situations in our lives without properly understanding the “problem” we are facing. When you seek first to understand the problem, you are far better equipped to deal with it. 3) Use Critical Thinking To Approach The Problem From Several Different Directions It's super important to analyze what the true problem is at all levels. Sometimes we are working infixing the smoke and not dealing with the fire so to speak. Plugging holes in a situation only leaves room for more holes to appear. Make sure you are dealing with the problem at the source. 4) Clearly Define The Ideal Solution To The Problem I love this step because it says a couple of things. You need to “clearly define” solutions, but I would go one step further and say something very critical here. Make sure you are brainstorming all solutions from a place of abundance. Often times we are using the easiest, quickest way to deal with problems rather than clearly thinking through options to fix and remedy a problem long term. 5) Pick The Best Solution To Solve Your Challenge It's also important that you spend some clear time and focus on picking the right solution. If you will simply take time analyze the pros and cons of “each” solution, you will sometimes find that a new solution or better solution can appear. Don't jump to quick decisions on solutions if you are dealing with a core or critical problem in your business or life. 6) Prepare For The Worst Possible Outcome And How To Overcome It. Sometimes we find ourselves implementing a solution only to find out that the solution doesn't work. Be prepared in your mind and in your business to rapidly accept that outcome whatever it is, and immediately go to a new solution. 7) Measure Your Progress Another trap many of us fall into is that we are hoping for a result but not measuring the progress. Sometimes a solution fixes a problem but not as well as another solution could fix it. Have an objective to measure what results you want that solution to create for you. 8) Take Complete Responsibility For Your Decision Don't be caught up or too vesting in having your solution be “right”. Take responsibility for whatever outcome happens, and move on with new solutions if it does not work out. Remember that failure is only temporary. Keep moving forward. 9) Set A Deadline For When Things Should Be Solved A decision without a deadline is a meaningless discussion. If it is a major decision and will take some time to implement, set a series of short-term deadlines and a schedule for reporting. Deadlines and milestones are the only way you will know if you are succeeding with the solution you have implemented. Become aware of what progress you are making through these very productive milestones and goals. 10) Take Action And Solve Your Problem Obviously the most important step is to Take Action. That is something Tracy is very well know for emphasizing. Taking Action is the only true way to create results in your life. I love what another one of me mentors has always told me. Take Action and But Allow Space for Attraction. I promise if you will approach any situation with an Abundant Mindset and with a Spirit of Taking Responsibility and Taking Action, you will absolutely make progress in your life. Also, remember a couple things I have mentioned before in our Daily Mastermind: What the mind can conceive and believe it can achieve. If you Think Win Win, you will always come out on top. Act in Spite of Your Mood. Sometimes problems seem to put us in a funk. You have everything you need to be successful in your life. If you believe what Tony Robbins always says. It is always a lack of Resources or Resourcefulness and one can always compensate for the other. So, get to work and get it done. Have an amazing week. Thanks for being part of our Mastermind Community. George Wright III

Geoffrey Giuliano: Author, Actor and Musicologist Ed interviews author and actor Geoffrey Giuliano. Geoffrey Giuliano (born September 11, 1953) is an American author, radio personality, and film actor, best known for his biographies of The Beatles members John Lennon, Paul McCartney, and George Harrison, and of musician Pete Townshend. He is also known for his involvement in the Mclibel case. A biography Giuliano wrote, Lennon In America (released in 2000), was controversial. Giuliano said the book was based in part on transcripts of Lennon's journal given to him by the singer Harry Nilsson. The book was issued after Nilsson's death, and several people close to Nilsson do not believe he ever had the transcripts in his possession. Washington Post reporter David Segal quoted Giuliano's response when he was asked to corroborate his claim that Nilsson gave him the diaries. "It's obvious that I'm going to do things in an ethical manner." Segal also reported the view of Steven Gutstein, a former New York assistant district attorney who was asked to read the diaries during an early 1980s larceny lawsuit against former Lennon personal assistant Fred Seaman. Gutstein described his own memory of the diaries as "a lot of philosophical musings combined with mundane details of everyday life." http://www.geoffreygiuliano.net/ hace 4 años #actor, #and, #author, #geoffrey, #giuliano:, #musicologist

Hello everyone! I'm so glad you've joined us today for episode 125, “How to Relate When They Come Home From College.” It's about how when our kids return home from college for the weekend to apply the ORA principle. Observe. Remember. Act. A podcast listener recently contacted me for some relationship advice. She asked, “Our son, who just started his freshman year of college, is coming home for the weekend, and I wonder if you have any suggestions for how my husband and I should relate to him?” I know some of the rest of you are facing this same issue now, or have already dealt with it, or may soon face it in the next 2 to 18 years. It's a relationship issue where we can apply the ORA principle. Observe - Remember - Act. Observe Let's start with Observe. To our listener, I would ask, what have you observed about your son that makes him enjoy life? What things bring him joy when he's with your family? What are the things you think he looks forward to? Are there things he dreads? You know, this is the question we've been asking in the past several episodes. Most importantly, Observe what's going on within YOU. Do you see any tendency you may have to use your son to meet your emotional needs? If you're still grieving his leaving home, don't do it in front of him. Remember I would also figuratively scratch your head to try and remember what it was like when YOU came home from college for the first time. What did YOU look forward to in returning home? What did YOU dread? I know you're a different person than your son, but brought YOU joy in coming home? Remember, going away to college is a more significant change for your son than it is for you Remember your son is in that transition phase between teenager and young adult. Focus on the latter, not the former Remember that even though your son may have had a great deal of independence before he left home for college, the independence he has now is different. It's more pronounced. He's become used to making his own decisions without input from you Remember that every parent's job is to raise their child to be an independent, well-functioning adult and member of society. So embrace his newfound independence with him. Act Based on what you have observed about your son. And what you remember what it was like for you when you came home from college, take some kind of action Make coming home as pleasant an experience as possible. Create positive memories for your son. Spend less time telling him what to do and more time listening. The most important action you can take is to ask your son what he would like to do when he comes home for the weekend. Go to an event? Meet with friends. Sleep and veg out? Work on his college homework? Set aside your own needs and plan for a few days Let your son fill his schedule for the weekend. Ask if he'd like to bring a friend home with him Celebrate this new chapter of his life. Ask about his classes, which one he likes and those he isn't too fond of. Act by holding back advice unless you're asked for it Avoid saying, “If I were you, I would….” Instead, ask, “How are you going to deal with that? What are you going to do?” Make it a joy-filled weekend for your son. Ask the Holy Spirit ways you can best interact with your son. He'll show you Speak your son's love language Please don't give him chores to do. Instead, ask him as a favor as you would a friend. “Would you mind doing me a favor and (insert verb phrase)” Say “yes,” more than you say “no.” What if you don't have kids in college? So what about the rest of us who don't have children in college. Yet. Some day you might, and it's not too early to prepare for that possibility. If I had young kids at home, even toddlers, I would develop my observation skills about my kids. Pay attention to their love language, discover what makes them tick. Help them to move from one stage of childhood to the next level. The skills you develop doing this will come in handy when they leave and then return home from college. Or from their factory job from another part of the country. Or from the military. If you don't have any children, or If you're past this stage of life and your kids have all left home, think about your friends in the throes of launching their children into the world. Reach out to them. Ask how they're dealing with this new chapter in their life. And please listen to episode 69, “When Our Kids Go Off to School for the First Time,” especially if you have friends with children heading to kindergarten or off to college. The main point from today's episode Here's the main point I hope you remember from today's episode: Apply the ORA principle in your relationships with your kids returning home from college. Observe. Observe what's going on inside of you, and the emotions you feel when your child comes home for the weekend. Remember. Remember what it was like for you when you were away from home for a while, and then returned. Remind yourself to treat him like an adult. Act. Ask him what he wants to do or not do. Let him call the shots, not you. I'd love to hear any thoughts you have about today's episode. Just send them to me in an email to john [at] caringforothers [dot] org.

In this episode, we have two incredible guests. I'm excited to bring two guests with some incredible experience and research behind them to talk about an important topic, which is bringing ACT to a multidisciplinary pain clinic setting. My guests are Physical Therapist Corinne Cooley and Psychologist Heather King. First, I'll tell you about Corinne. She is a Physical Therapist at the Stanford Pain Management Center and a Clinical Residency Faculty Member in the Stanford Orthopaedic Clinical Residency Program in California. She works with pain physicians and pain psychologists to help optimize complex patient care plans, and leads the exercise and movement portion of interdisciplinary outpatient programs. Psychologist, Heather King, is a Clinical Associate Professor in the Department of Anesthesiology and Peri-Operative Pain Medicine. She also serves as the Director of the Pain Psychology Fellowship at Stanford. Her areas of expertise are Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for pain as well as insomnia, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. In this episode, we'll discuss an investigation that Corinne and Heather were both involved in. This study included an outpatient interdisciplinary approach with pain psychology using ACT as well as physical therapy, and compared that to traditional Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. In essence, this was an ACT plus PT intervention compared to a Cognitive Behavioral Therapy intervention alone. They got some interesting data and some results to share. They share how they went about investigating this topic and some of the outcomes as well as the patient population, and how ACT flowed through the psychology as well as the physical therapy part of care. As you know, I'm a little biased toward mindfulness and acceptance-based approaches, to living life to the fullest, especially with chronic pain. That's why I'm so excited to share Corinne and Heather with you. They also use ACT as their primary form of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy in their treatment. Just a reminder, if you want to learn more about ACT for chronic pain, there are two great resources for you. The first is my book, which is called Radical Relief. The second is our course, ACT for Chronic Pain, here at the Integrative Pain Science Institute. Take the time to read about some of the topics we're talking about with regard to chronic pain, both on how ACT can help the psychological aspect as well as the physical aspect of pain. Also, how Heather and Corinne worked together as this tight interdisciplinary team, which is important in the study they created. Hopefully, we can see more of this in healthcare settings. I highly recommend if you're a professional to download the paper. It's open access. You can read either the paper and follow along with the show or read the paper after. Without further ado, let's begin and meet Physical Therapist Corinne Cooley and Psychologist Heather King. Love the show? Subscribe, rate, review, and share!
