Julie and Casey sit down with Erotic Wholeness coach Darshana Avila to discuss pleasure as a nutrient, a “more than sexy” definition of erotic, the importance of self- AND community care, and the ultimate cure for burnout. Along the way, we get into why the Powers That Be don't want us to be embodied — and how staying connected to and feeling pleasure in your body may be one of the most powerful ways we can disrupt oppressive systems. Check out our brand new VVT Workbooks! The POWER/PLAY Communication Manifesto and How to Rehearse guide can be found here. TOP TAKEAWAYS: “Erotic” as Darshana defines it is encompassing of sexuality, but so much more: our bodies as sensors, our world as full of sensory experiences, and our creativity and life force and desire and connection. “Wholeness” is about the work of knowing, exploring, and integrating all of our humanity. The body / brain disconnect is systemic — we're told that we ARE our brains, our productivity, our striving, etc, and that our bodies are only for utilitarian purposes. The principle weapon of systems of oppression is disconnect from the body. When we disconnect from the body, we disconnect from pleasure, and pleasure is an essential nutrient. The “cure” for burnout is about building up resources in and for your nervous system — and that requires, once again, turning toward our bodies. While our nervous system is definitely a “brain thing”, our entire bodies are enervated by this system. It also requires turning toward our communities and relationships . . . this is something we simply can't do for ourselves. LESSON: How (and why) to find pleasure in creating sound with your voice. Darshana Avila is nurturing a culture of Erotic Wholeness. As an internationally recognized speaker, coach and facilitator, Darshana supports women and couples in exploring and reshaping their relationships to intimacy, sex and eroticism. She created the Map to Erotic Wholeness to weave together a somatic, justice-oriented and relational style of guidance, rooted in nature-based and trauma-informed wisdom. Erotic Wholeness is a path to personal liberation in service to our collective sexual liberation. Darshana believes “we are erotic by nature.” Known for her grounded, candid and loving approach, Darshana meets people in some of the most tender parts of themselves. Her methods breakdown barriers, unlock a greater authenticity and enjoyment and provide a pathway to realize your innate erotic power. Combining the laboratory of her own life with extensive study and a decade of profound private practice experience, Darshana is dedicated to changing the way we talk, think, and act when it comes to sex and eroticism. Darshana has been interviewed by several groundbreaking podcasts, and can often be found sharing the stage with other experts and influencers on IG Live. In October 2021, she was featured on the Netflix Series: Sex, Love & goop.

Which means you have to, with eyes open, be able to keep your heart open in hell... And what it involves is bearing the unbearable. And who you really are can do it. So that who you think you are has to die in the process."-Ram Dass “Many misunderstandings and false beliefs about Christ will clear if you realize that there is no past or future in Christ. To say that Christ was or will be is a contradiction in terms. Jesus was. He was a man who lived two thousand years ago and realized divine presence, his true nature. And so he said: “Before Abraham was, I am.” He did not say: “I already existed before Abraham was born.” That would have meant that he was still within the dimension of time and form identity. The words I am used in a sentence that starts in the past tense indicate a radical shift, a discontinuity in the temporal dimension. It is a Zen-like statement of great profundity. Jesus attempted to convey directly, not through discursive thought, the meaning of presence, of self-realization. He had gone beyond the consciousness dimension governed by time, into the realm of the timeless. The dimension of eternity had come into this world. Eternity, of course, does not mean endless time, but no time. Thus, the man Jesus became Christ, a vehicle for pure consciousness. And what is God's self-definition in the Bible? Did God say, “I have always been, and I always will be?” Of course not. That would have given reality to past and future. God said: “I AM THAT I AM.” No time here, just presence.”- Excerpt From, 'The Power of Now' by Eckhart Tolle and Now...And NOW :) I Love youuuu! Support the show

Let's talk about the power of networks within our global communities. Maricella Herrera Avila, CEO of the Ellevate Network is creating new leadership in a global community of professional women+. Maricella is the first Latina to be the CEO of this global organization and she brings with her the financial tenacity and leadership to build strength in numbers for a new diverse community. We open with her journey from El Salvador to Mexico, where she worked in corporate real estate banking, and worked on providing credit funding for low income housing development projects in the north of Mexico. As we discuss her leadership journey, we both acknowledge how the pandemic and the recent overturning of the Roe vs. Wade has provided enormous set backs for Latinas in the job market, and that leadership, particularly middle management or managers are where the most impact for real change can happen.

"O todo, o nada" - alles oder nichts, das ist das Lebensmotto der spanischen Mystikerin Teresa von Avila. Ihre Reform des Karmeliten-Ordens bringt sie ins Visier der Inquisition, aber dieses "herumstreunende, halsstarrige Weib", wie der päpstliche Nuntius sie nennt, ist durch nichts zu beirren. Tiefe mystische Erfahrung, verbunden mit Tatkraft, Humor und einer genialen Begabung für Freundschaft machen Teresa zu einer einzigartigen spirituellen Inspiration, auch für Kirchenferne. Communicacíon viva - lebendige Kommunikation, so wird ihre Persönlichkeit beschrieben, das macht ihre zeitlose Anziehungskraft aus. (BR 2009)

It gets stronger as we grow up, unless we are touched by the Gospel and begin the spiritual journey.

Summary -- It is so common for Catholics (and others) to reject the love of God, to not let that love in. Join Dr. Peter for this episode where we explore in depth the eight natural, human formation reasons why we refuse God's love. We also look at what Hell really is and why it really exists. Through examples, quotes, and an exploration of Dr. Peter's own parts, listen to how this critical, central topic comes alive. And then Dr. Peter presents the an action plan for accepting and embracing God's love. Lead-in “It's very hard for most of us to tolerate being loved.” ―Psychiatrist and Harvard Professor George Vaillant (need description) The Hardest Thing about love for many of us Catholics -- is to be loved. To tolerate being loved first. We can't love unless we take love in first. We can't generate love out of nothing on our own, we don't have that power. Many Catholics make sacrifices great and small in an attempt to love others. Many Catholics go to great lengths to try to please God and to love their neighbor -- very busy people, most parishes have a few of these -- always volunteering, working, making things happen, St. Vincent de Paul, soup kitchens, corporal works of mercy -- working so hard to live out the Gospel as they understand it, but it's all external -- they are very out of touch with their internal lives. Their prayer lives are shallow and sketchy and they are uncomfortable in their own skin and they will not tolerate silence. The vast majority of us Catholics will not tolerate being loved deeply or fully. We shy away from receiving love. We get so uncomfortable, we skirt around the edges of being loved Or we allow love into us only so far. Only so far. We won't let real love permeate all of our being. We let the quote acceptable unquote parts of us be loved, those parts we allow in our shop window. Those parts we believe others will accept. But to allow someone to love all of you -- your nasty parts, your shameful parts, your disgusting parts, your hidden leper parts, your sinful parts -- those tax collector parts, your inner prostitutes and blasphemers, your Pharisee parts, the parts of you that are so lost and so isolated and so angry and hateful? Those parts? Most of us will say -- No way -- no way does anyone get to see those parts if I can help it, let alone love those parts. How about your terrified parts, your desperate parts, your wounded, traumatized parts, the ones no one wants, the parts of you that have been rejected by everybody, including yourself. This podcast is for us Catholics who understand at least intellectually that we have those parts. And that those parts need to be loved. Those parts also need to be redeemed. For anyone out there who is saying "Well, I don't think I have any parts like that, Dr. Peter. I don't have any problems being loved." My response to that is one of two possibilities -- either you are: 1 -- A very special person, who has been freed from our fallen human condition and you've achieved an extraordinary degree of perfection in the natural and spiritual realms -- and if so, congratulations to you. You don't need this podcast and you don't need this episode, you are so far above the rest of us. I'm in awe of you. You don't need what I have to offer. Or 2 -- you don't know yourself very well. You are out of touch with yourself and your parts, disconnected inside. It's especially hard for us to tolerate being loved by God. That's the primary reason we don't love God back and we don't love our neighbor and we don't love ourselves. We won't be loved first. God loved us first. It all starts with God's love -- not our love. God loved us first. Heisman Trophy Winner Tim Tebow in his Book Shaken “We were created by Love, in love, and for love.” Paul tells us in Romans 5:8 But God shows his love for us in that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us. God loved us first. 1 John 3:1 See what love the Father has given us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are. The reason why the world does not know us is that it did not know him. The world does not know God. Christianity is the way to discover who God actually is. To discover what Love actually is. John tells us in 1 John 4:9-10 In this the love of God was made manifest among us, that God sent his only Son into the world, so that we might live through him. In this is love, not that we loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the expiation for our sins. This is what I want you to remember. From St. John, 1 John 4:19: St. John tells us: We love because he first loved us And it's up to us to take that love in, to let it reach to every corner of our being. That doesn't sound easy. And it's not as easy as it sounds. Intro I am Dr. Peter Malinoski, a.k.a. Dr. Peter, clinical psychologist, trauma therapist, podcaster, blogger, cofounder and president of Souls and Hearts -- but most of all I am a beloved little son of God, a passionate Catholic who wants to help you to experience the height and depth and breadth and warmth and the light of the love of God, especially God the Father and our primary Mother Mary. What I want for you more than anything else is that you enter into a deep, intimate, personal, loving relationship with the three Persons of the Trinity and with our Lady. That is what this Interior Integration for Catholics podcast is all about, that is what Souls and Hearts is all about – all about shoring up the natural foundation for the spiritual life of intimacy with God, all about overcoming the natural human formation deficits and obstacles to contemplative union with God our Father and our Lady, our Mother We are on an adventure of love together. Episode 94 of this podcast focused on the primacy of love in the Catholic life. Episode 95 focused on trauma's devastating impact on our capacity to love. Episode 96 discussed how trauma hardens us against being loved. Episode 97 discussed how trauma predisposes us to self-hatred and indifference, a refusal to love ourselves. And episode 98, the last episode was all about ordered self-love, how we need to love ourselves in an ordered way in order to love God and neighbor, to carry out the two great Commandments. Today were to take a step back were to look at the most critical prerequisite for loving God and others. We are going to discuss being loved the first, accepting the love of God first. This is absolutely essential. The most critical mistake that most Catholics make is to refuse the love of God. Let me say that again. The most critical mistake, the most devastating, catastrophic mistake that most Catholics make is to refuse to allow God's love to transform us entirely, to make us into new men and women. Let us start out with The order of Loves God leads with love -- he goes first. God makes the first move. He moves toward us, we who He created, and who have fallen from grace because of original sin. We don't make the first move. God does. He loved us first, and he continues to love us first Sean Mitchell -- We Love Because He First Loved Us -- Those Catholic Men. “We love because he first loved us” (1 John 4:19). These words from the first letter of John beautifully and succinctly sum up the origin and end of the Christian life—which, in a word, is love. “Being Christian,” said Benedict XVI, “is…the encounter with an event, a person, which gives life a new horizon and a decisive direction” (Benedict XVI, Deus Caritas Est, 1). That “encounter” is our experience of God “first loving us.” The “new horizon” that it opens up, the “decisive direction” that it gives to our lives, is love—our love of God and our neighbor because of His prior love of us. To participate in that endless exchange of love is what it means to be a Christian. It is the center from which all other aspects of the Christian life emanate. I fear that a significant number of Catholic men miss this point and regard something other than love as the central point of being a follower of Christ. What I did not include from Benedict's quote above is what he says being Christian is not. It is not, he says, “the result of an ethical choice or a lofty idea” (Benedict XVI, Deus Caritas Est). To state that more generally, being Christian isn't primarily about my will or my intellect and what I do with them (i.e., make “ethical choices” and assent to “lofty ideas”). Rather, it is first and foremost about my heart, my whole person in all its mystery, and what has been done to it by God. Is it not the case, though, that so many of us fail to understand this? If we're honest with ourselves, I think we would have to admit that it is, that we ourselves are among those men who place something other than love at (or at least close to) the center of our “Christian” life…even if we don't realize it. Comment on this Edward Vacek: Love, Human and Divine: The Heart of Christian Ethics. The sequence in loving and being loved. (1) God affirms us; (2) God receives us; (3) we accept God's love; (4) we affirm God; (5) God forms community with us; (6) we cooperate with God in loving God in the world; and finally (7) we grow in a limited co-responsibility with God. p. 177 Genesis 3. The trauma of original sin. God comes looking for them -- God seeks them out -- hiding, fleeing from him in their shame and confusion and bitterness, in the trauma of original sin. God calls out to them -- example of His gentleness. No cursing of Adam and Eve. The serpent is cursed, the ground is cursed. Not Adam and Eve Provides clothing for them to help them with their shame. Protects them from the Tree of Life. Banishing them from the garden was an act of love -- if they had eaten from the tree of life, the Genesis 3:22- 24 Then the Lord God said, “Behold, the man has become like one of us, knowing good and evil; and now, lest he put forth his hand and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live forever”— therefore the Lord God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from which he was taken. 24 He drove out the man; and at the east of the garden of Eden he placed the cherubim, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to guard the way to the tree of life. God making sure that they won't be separated from Him forever. St. Ephrem the Syrian, Commentary on Genesis, 122 explains, “God did this lest this life-giving gift that they would receive through the tree of life become misery, and thus bring worse evil upon them than what they had already obtained from the tree of knowledge. From the latter tree they obtained temporal pains, whereas the former tree would have made those pains eternal. From the latter they obtained death which would have cast off from them the bonds of their pains. The former tree, however, would have caused them to live as if buried alive, leaving them to be tortured eternally by their pains.” The basic problem with the sequence -- not tolerating enough contact with God to be affirmed, for Him to receive us. to understand Him in a radically different way. And what kind of love is God's love for us? God Himself tells us: I have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore I have continued my faithfulness to you. Jeremiah 31:3. God is faithful to us. He loves with an everlasting love. Isaiah 54.10 For the mountains may depart and the hills be removed,but my steadfast love shall not depart from you, and my covenant of peace shall not be removed, says the Lord, who has compassion on you. How steadfast is God's love: Deuteronomy 7:9 tells us. Know therefore that the Lord your God is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant and steadfast love with those who love him and keep his commandments, to a thousand generations Psalm 86:5 For thou, O Lord, art good and forgiving, abounding in steadfast love to all who call on thee. God requires a response from us. -- abounding in steadfast love to all who call on thee. We have to call on him, we have to respond to the love. That is what this episode is all about. This is episode 99 of the Interior Integration for Catholic podcast, released on November 7, 2022 titled IIC 99 Why We Catholics Reject God's Love for Us and How to Embrace that Love CCC 221 But St. John goes even further when he affirms that "God is love": [1 John 4:8, 16] God's very being is love. By sending his only Son and the Spirit of Love in the fullness of time, God has revealed his innermost secret: God himself is an eternal exchange of love, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, and he has destined us to share in that exchange. We have to take him up on that. How do we know we are loved by God? -- 2 ways. Faith and lived experience Faith Infused virtue CCC 150 Faith is first of all a personal adherence of man to God. At the same time, and inseparably, it is a free assent to the whole truth that God has revealed. As personal adherence to God and assent to his truth, Christian faith differs from our faith in any human person. It is right and just to entrust oneself wholly to God and to believe absolutely what he says. It would be futile and false to place such faith in a creature. CCC 153 When St. Peter confessed that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the living God, Jesus declared to him that this revelation did not come "from flesh and blood", but from "my Father who is in heaven".24 Faith is a gift of God, a supernatural virtue infused by him. "Before this faith can be exercised, man must have the grace of God to move and assist him; he must have the interior helps of the Holy Spirit, who moves the heart and converts it to God, who opens the eyes of the mind and 'makes it easy for all to accept and believe the truth.'"25 Lived experience of the relationship with God. 2 Timothy 1:12 But I am not ashamed, for I know whom I have believed, and I am sure that he is able to guard until that Day what has been entrusted to me. Can feel it in consolations. We don't want to engineer emotional experiences of closeness, manipulating emotions -- Concern about Catholic youth events, hyper emotional, noisy and using psychological techniques of influence to generated contrived emotional experiences. Hyping people up, getting them out of their window of tolerance. We don't want to rely on our subjective experience of lived relationship Because the subjective experience of connection with God can vary way too much. Von Hildebrand writes, “Our confidence in God must be independent of whether we experience His nearness, whether we sense the enlivening touch of grace, whether we feel ourselves being born on the wings of His love.” (p 210). Mother Teresa 1957 confided to spiritual director: In the darkness . . . Lord, my God, who am I that you should forsake me? The child of your love — and now become as the most hated one. The one — you have thrown away as unwanted — unloved. I call, I cling, I want, and there is no one to answer . . . Where I try to raise my thoughts to heaven, there is such convicting emptiness that those very thoughts return like sharp knives and hurt my very soul. Love — the word — it brings nothing. I am told God lives in me — and yet the reality of darkness and coldness and emptiness is so great that nothing touches my soul. David Scott in chapter 17 of his book The Love That Made Mother Teresa wrote: For more than fifty years following her initial visions and locutions, Mother Teresa was wrapped in a dark, pitiless silence. She only once more heard the voice of God, and she believed the doors of heaven had been closed and bolted against her. The more she longed for some sign of his presence, the more empty and desolate she became.

Von Hildebrand According to von Hildebrand, the vision of most Catholics is way too narrow – our sights are set way too low. We are satisfied with too little in the spiritual life – we are like chickens pecking at the ground when we are called to soar as eagles. We may be content with merely avoiding sin, overcoming vices and developing virtues. Some of us may pursue the spiritual life as a self-improvement project, satisfied with incremental gains Weekly reflection October 26, 2022 -- Why we resist change – and especially radical transformation. Ransom Riggs Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children character Jacob Portman “One day my mother sat me down and explained that I couldn't become an explorer because everything in the world had already been discovered." Love, in some sense, is nothing other than an invitation to great joy and suffering, so they shy away from it. Paul Catalanotto Refusal to love is also refusal to live The Catholic Weekly John 6: 41-42 The Jews then murmured at him, because he said, “I am the bread which came down from heaven.” They said, “Is not this Jesus, the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we know? How does he now say, ‘I have come down from heaven'?” John 6: vs. 60 and 66 Many of his disciples, when they heard it, said, “This is a hard saying; who can listen to it?” After this many of his disciples drew back and no longer went about with him. We don't understand God's love Isaiah 55:8-9 For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, says the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts. Sharon Jaynes When Love Hurts April 17, 2018.

His slumped body snuggled listlessly like an old, worn rag doll.When I carried him into the medical clinic, the doctor quickly diagnosed dehydration and immediately sent us to the hospital.My heart ripped apart as the nurses strapped my little boy onto a table and began placing IVs in his tiny arms.“Mommy, Mommy,” Steven cried. “Make them stop! They're hurting me.”“No, honey,” I tried to assure him. “They're going to make you all better.”“Mommy, help me!”Steven cried. I cried. The nurses cried.I could only imagine what was going through Steven's little mind. Why are these people hurting me? Why doesn't Mommy make them stop? She must not love me. She's not protecting me. If she loved me she wouldn't let them do this. She must not care about me.Standing in the corner watching my little boy cry, I wondered if that's how God feels when I'm going through a painful situation that's for my ultimate good. I cried out, “God, why are You letting this happen? Don't You love me? Don't You care about what's happening to me? Why don't You make it stop?” Can see the need to exist here being threatened. I might be very injured, I might die. Integrity need No felt sense of being protected -- attachment need. In fact, just the opposite. The little child was being protected, but didn't understand, didn't feel it. No felt sense of being comforted or soothed, child not open to it. Third primary condition of secure attachment No felt sense of support for his highest good. Fifth condition of secure attachment. Parts of us very young, like this 3-year-old. Hebrews 12:11 For the moment all discipline seems painful rather than pleasant; later it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it. Poor view of discipline Bad experiences of being disciplined -- not having been disciplined out of love But rather out of anger or inconvenience or frustration. Freud -- gratification and frustration to grow. The Costs of Being Loved by God Real love, agape or charity, is always given freely -- we understand that much But real love, agape, charity -- real love is never received freely in this fallen world. There is a cost to allowing real love into our lives. Very little discussion about the costs of being loved by God. I find that so strange. So many Catholics don't think this way. It is as though Catholics have parts that believe that being loved by God is one of two things Being loved by God should easy, delightful, peaceful -- like being the lead character a Hallmark movie Romance novels. Easy love that just come naturally. Emotional Junk food that nourishes illusions. and when it's not, they conclude that God isn't loving them, or that they are excluded from His love Being loved by God is terrible Echoes of Hebrews 10:31 It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God. Burning away Real love -- Agape -- burns away things that are sinful within us -- it doesn't coexist with the vice within us. Real love also purifies us from anything that is not morally wrote, but that is disordered or dysfunctional or imperfect Real love is the greatest good. And because it's the greatest good, it requires us to give up lesser goods. Perceived good and actual goods. Coping strategies, crutches that helped us in the past Analogy of the safe -- limited room, silver and gold. 1 Peter 1:7 So that the tested genuineness of your faith—more precious than gold that perishes though it is tested by fire—may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ. Isaiah 48:10 Behold, I have refined you, but not as silver; I have tried you in the furnace of affliction. Zechariah 13:9 And I will put this third into the fire, and refine them as one refines silver, and test them as gold is tested. They will call upon my name, and I will answer them. I will say, ‘They are my people'; and they will say, ‘The Lord is my God.'” Proverbs 17:3 The crucible is for silver, and the furnace is for gold, and the Lord tests hearts. Job 23:10 But he knows the way that I take; when he has tried me, I shall come out as gold. Integrity needs I exist I matter I am good Attachment needs Felt safety and protection Felt comfort and reassurance Felt sense of being cherished and delighted in. No experience of that while being corrected, perfected. xThe cost is up front -- the benefit in the future. Poor God images We don't understand God. We don't know who he is. -- reflected in the Sharon Jaynes' story of her son at the doctor's office. Lack of confidence in God. Lack of Faith God Images = My emotional and subjective experiences of God, who I feel God to be in the moment. May or may not correspond to who God really is. What I feel about God in my bones. This is my experiential sense how my feelings and how my heart interpret God. Each part, not in right relationship with the innermost self, has a distorted God image. God images are often unconscious. Initially God images are shaped by the relationship that I have with my parents. My God images are heavily influenced by psychological factors Different God images can be activated at different times, depending on my emotional states and what psychological mode I am in at a given time. God images are always formed experientially; God images flow from our relational experiences and Also how we construe and make sense of those images when we are very young. My God images can be radically different than my God concept. We all have heretical God images. Differ from God Concept = What I profess about God. It is my more intellectual understanding of God, based on what one has been taught, but also based on what I have explored through reading. I decide to believe in my God concept. Reflected in the Creed, expanded in the Catechism, formal teaching. Can take a while to get to these God images -- not on the surface We don't know God very well. We refuse Mother Angelica's Little Book of Life Lessons And Everyday Spirituality : Allow people to love you as they must love you, not as you want them to love you. Even God does not love us as we wish Him to. Learning to love is learning to accept love as it comes. I will lose the relationship with God that I have if I push the envelope And you will. That is true. Episodes 37-49 on God images. Really hits on attachment needs. Poor Self images -- Shame Self-images are much more emotionally driven, much more intuitive, subjective, and they vary a lot more from moment to moment. Each part, not in right relationship with the innermost self, has a distorted self image. Pastor Jonathan Edwards Sinners in the Hand of an angry God, 1740s “The God that holds you over the pit of hell, much as one holds a spider or some loathsome insect over the fire, abhors you, and is dreadfully provoked; his wrath towards you burns like fire; he looks upon you as worthy of nothing else, but to be cast into the fire ... you are ten thousand times so abominable in his eyes, as the most hateful and venomous serpent is in ours.” Hiding from God. Genesis 3. I don't want to find out I am unlovable. I can't bear that. Episode 24 of this podcast, God images and self images. Really hits on integrity needs. Especially the need to be good. Refusal to be vulnerable, to be exposed, to be revealed to God. Because for love to be real, for love to be agape means me allowing you to love all of me. All my parts. My entire being Not just the acceptable parts of me in the shop window, those that I allow others to see. Fears of being hurt one more time -- Fears of betrayal Fears of abandonment We think we can hide. Self protection -- need to survive. Need to be good. Lack of courage. Philophobia -- fear of love All of us have parts that fear love. Comfort in the familiarity of the dysfunction we know. Predictability Change is scary Maureen Brady, Beyond Survival: A Writing Journey for Healing Childhood Sexual Abuse “For change to occur in us, we must be willing to enter the wilderness of the unknown and to wander in unfamiliar territory, directionless and often in the darkness....We do not need to keep every little thing under control. In fact, we find ourselves only by allowing some falling apart to happen.” Erica Jong: I have accepted fear as a part of life - specifically the fear of change... I have gone ahead despite the pounding in the heart that says: turn back. Nelson Mandela: I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear. Anger at God, Rebellion against Him. secondary to poor God images. Anger is the ordered emotion in response to injustice. What is a part? Separate, independently operating personalities within us, each with own unique prominent needs, roles in our lives, emotions, body sensations, guiding beliefs and assumptions, typical thoughts, intentions, desires, attitudes, impulses, interpersonal style, and world view. Each part also has an image of God. When parts are not integrated, under the leadership and guidance of my innermost self Self: The core of the person, the center of the person. This is who we sense ourselves to be in our best moments, and when our self is free, and unblended with any of our parts, it governs our whole being as an active, compassionate leader. Parts in greater detail -- discussed my parts in Episode 71 A New and Better Way of Understanding Myself and Others. Good Boy Evaluator (formerly "the Critic") Melancholio Adventurer (formerly my "part who holds fear") Feisty One (formerly my "angry part") Challenger (formerly "the Rebel") Lover Part Collaborator Parts (formerly my Competent Part) Guardian (formerly "the Intimidator") Creative Part Consequences -- Hell Nothing can separate us from God's love. Romans 8:38-39 For I am sure that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, 39 nor height, nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord. Nothing can separate you from the love of God, not even demons -- angel and principalities. Nothing can separate you from the love of God. With one exception. You. Only you can separate you from the love of God. Only you have the power to do that, by refusing to let that love come it. That's what sin is. It's separating ourselves from God. Sin is damaging our relationship with God. Separation happens Jesus weeping over Jerusalem Luke 19:41-44 And when he drew near and saw the city he wept over it, saying, “Would that even today you knew the things that make for peace! But now they are hid from your eyes. For the days shall come upon you, when your enemies will cast up a bank about you and surround you, and hem you in on every side, and dash you to the ground, you and your children within you, and they will not leave one stone upon another in you; because you did not know the time of your visitation. It's not that God won't protect Jerusalem. It's that he could not protect the Israelites, not without violating their freedom, not without forcing Himself on them. Matthew 7:13-14 “Enter by the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is easy, that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many. For the gate is narrow and the way is hard, that leads to life, and those who find it are few. Pope John Paul II in a 1999 audience, God did not create Hell. Hell “… is not a punishment imposed externally by God but a development of premises already set by people in this life.” Catechism of the Catholic Church edited by Archbishop Rino Fisichella 2019 by Our Sunday Visitor Louis Ladaria: To be precise, God did not make Hell. His free creatures make it, inasmuch as they separate themselves from Him. Nor does God send anyone to Hell: it is the damned one who separates himself and does not want to enter into the Father's house. God, St. Irenaeus said, does not really look to punish the damned, but as they are deprived of all good things, it is the penalty that pursues them (Adversus Haereses, V. 27, 2; a similar idea in St. Augustine, Enarrationes in Psalmos, 5, 10: God abandons the sinner to his evil, he does not, properly speaking, give evil to anyone). Because of this, and despite what is said sometimes, we need to insist on the fact that Hell does not say anything against the infinite goodness of God. (p. 863). Dean Koontz: The Book of Counted Sorrows: “We make Hell real; we stoke its fires. // And in its flames our hope expires. CCC 30 Although man can forget God or reject him, He never ceases to call every man to seek him, so as to find life and happiness. CCC 1037 God predestines no one to go to hell; for this, a willful turning away from God (a mortal sin) is necessary, and persistence in it until the end. In the Eucharistic liturgy and in the daily prayers of her faithful, the Church implores the mercy of God, who does not want "any to perish, but all to come to repentance. Not trying to catch us, not with a hand on the trap door to hell. Fr. Edward McIlmail, LC “Ask a Priest: If God loves us so much, why does hell exist?” An analogy might help. Imagine you are on a ship that is searching for survivors from a sunken ocean liner. You see a passenger struggling in the waves behind you. You throw a lifeline to him, but he refuses to grab it. You beg him to take hold of the lifeline, but he ignores your plea. Eventually, he sinks below the waves and drowns. Does his drowning indicate that you were indifferent? When you begged him to grab the lifeline, were you displaying hate? Was his drowning your fault? The answer to all these questions is: no. The person in the water, for whatever reason, refused your help. His drowning was the consequence. It doesn't matter why we flee from God and why we flee from His love. Hell as isolation -- cut off from everyone. Images of hell Hell as isolation Tekla Babyak in 2018 article Dante, Liszt and the alienated agon of hell writes: Dante Alighieri's Inferno portrays Hell as an alienated realm in which the doomed spirits must spend eternity in isolation and regret. Deepest level of hell, the ninth circle: "The treacheries of these souls were denials of love (which is God) and of all human warmth. Only the remorseless dead center of the ice will serve to express their natures. As they denied God's love, so are they furthest removed from the light and warmth of His Sun. As they denied all human ties, so are they bound only by the unyielding ice." John Ciardi, Inferno, notes on Canto XXXII, p. 248 Satan encased waist deep in ice. Not fire. Celeste Ng Little Fires Everywhere character of Mia Warren “In all her years of itinerant living, Mia had developed one rule: Don't get attached to any place, to any apartment, to anything. To anyone.” In Hell on earth Fragmentation of Dante's inferno -- lived now. Dietrich Bonhoeffer Life Together “Sin demands to have a man by himself. It withdraws him from the community. The more isolated a person is, the more destructive will be the power of sin over him, and the more deeply he comes involved in it, the more disastrous his isolation.” Sharon M. Draper Out of My Mind character Melody Brooks “It's like I live in a cage with no door and no key. And I have no way to tell someone how to get me out.” Sue Johnson Hold Me Tight “Isolation and the potential loss of loving connection is coded by the human brain into a primal panic response.” C.S. Lewis: The Great Divorce: “That is why, at the end of all things, when the sun rises here and the twilight turns to blackness down there, the Blessed will say, “we have never lived anywhere except in heaven,' and the Lost, “We were always in Hell.” And both will speak truly.” Action Plan Pray Set aside the time.

Jake Paul Beats Anderson Silva - A Couch Discussion With The BOYS | Divij's Den | Ep. 57 On this episode of Divij's Den, Divij, Christian, and special guests Alex Fraser and Yung Yizzo discuss Jake Paul vs Anderson Silva as well other things.... Divij@DivisionMedia.Co SEO Many combat sports fans don't consider Jake Paul a legitimate fighter, but he still is undefeated. The 25-year-old Paul, a YouTube and social media influencer who has now become a pro boxer, defeated UFC legend Anderson Silva in an eight-round unanimous decision on Saturday night in the main event of a Showtime pay-per-view card from Desert Diamond Arena in Glendale, Ariz. “It's a surreal moment. Hard work pays off,” Paul said after his win. “I want to say thank you to Anderson. He was my idol growing up and he inspired me to be great. Without him, we wouldn't have a fight this year. He's a tough mofo, like for real. I have a lot of respect for him.” Paul, who knocked down the 47-year-old Silva in the final round, won by scores of 77-74 and 78-73 (twice). Paul is now 6-0 with four KOs, while Silva, a former UFC middleweight champion, fell to 3-2 in boxing with two KOs. Silva, a native of Brazil, had his moments in the bout and landed his fair share of power shots, according to CBS Sports, but in the end, Paul's youth was too much for the veteran combat fighter. “I worked hard to do a special show for everybody here,” Silva said. “I say thank you for everyone to come. Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose but I continue training hard because I was born for this.” Paul, who also is a relentless self-promoter, immediately called out Nate Diaz and Canelo Alvarez, yes that Canelo Alvarez, after the match. But a match with Diaz, who is set to be a free agent after his UFC deal ends is much more likely. According to CBS Sports, seeds already have been planted as members of Paul and Diaz's team engaged in a scuffle backstage shortly after Diaz's teammate, Chris Avila, scored a victory to open the PPV card. “Nate Diaz is a bitch. He tried to fight me in my locker room and then left the arena,” Paul said of the 37-year-old fighter. “So Nate Diaz, don't be a bitch. Come fight me.Le'Veon Bell, the former Pittsburgh Steelers and Jets running back, lost by unanimous decision in his first fight as a pro against former UFC fighter Uriah Hall in one of the undercard matches. The three judges each scored the four-round bout 40-36 for Hall, meaning Bell unanimously lost every round he was in the ring. In another undercard match, Avila battered “Doctor” Mike Varshavski for much of their four-round cruiserweight fight Saturday night. The three judges all scored their bout 40-36 for Avila. The 29-year-old Avila landed numerous clean punches during the final three rounds for an easy unanimous decison over Varshavski, a medical doctor who made his professional boxing debut The 32-year-old Varshavski, known commonly as Dr. Mike, is a practicing family medicine physician who also has amassed more than 10 million YouTube subscribers and four million Instagram followers.

Friends of the Rosary: No form of devotion is more widely practiced and recommended by popes than the Holy Rosary. Many saints encouraged us to pray the Rosary daily, as the Blessed Mother asked. Among them, Teresa of Avila, Francis de Sales, Louis de Montfort, Alphonsus Liguori, Don Bosco, Bernadette, Maximilian Kolbe, Faustina Kowalska, John Paul II, and Padre Pio. The authentic Rosary is a combination of vocal and mental prayer, each of which is essential to the devotion. As Pope Leo XIII said the Rosary "is composed of two parts, distinct but inseparable — the meditation on the mysteries and the recitation of the prayers. It is thus a kind of prayer that requires not only some raising of the soul to God but also particular and explicit attention." As Pope Pius XI stated, they err "who consider this devotion merely a boresome formula repeated with monotonous and singsong intonation" In the words of Pius XII, "the recitation of identical formulas, repeated so many times, rather than rendering the prayer sterile and boring, has, on the contrary, the admirable quality of infusing confidence in him who prays, and brings to bear a gentle compulsion on the motherly heart of Mary." Ave Maria! Jesus, I Trust In You! + Mikel A. | RosaryNetwork.com, New York • October 27, 2021, Today's Rosary on YouTube | Daily broadcast at 7:30 pm ET

Full Text of ReadingsWednesday of the Thirtieth Week in Ordinary Time Lectionary: 481All podcast readings are produced by the USCCB and are from the Catholic Lectionary, based on the New American Bible and approved for use in the United States _______________________________________The Saint of the day is Saint Peter of AlcantaraPeter was a contemporary of well-known 16th-century Spanish saints, including Ignatius of Loyola and John of the Cross. He served as confessor to Saint Teresa of Avila. Church reform was a major issue in Peter's day, and he directed most of his energies toward that end. His death came one year before the Council of Trent ended. Born into a noble family—his father was the governor of Alcantara in Spain—Peter studied law at Salamanca University, and at 16 he joined the so-called Observant Franciscans, also known as the discalced friars. While he practiced many penances, he also demonstrated abilities which were soon recognized. He was named the superior of a new house even before his ordination as a priest, was elected provincial at the age of 39, and he was a very successful preacher. Still, he was not above washing dishes and cutting wood for the friars. He did not seek attention; indeed, he preferred solitude. Peter's penitential side was evident when it came to food and clothing. It is said that he slept only 90 minutes each night. While others talked about Church reform, Peter's reform began with himself. His patience was so great that a proverb arose: “To bear such an insult one must have the patience of Peter of Alcantara.” In 1554, Peter received permission to form a group of Franciscans who followed the Rule of St. Francis with even greater rigor. These friars were known as Alcantarines. Some of the Spanish friars who came to North and South America in the 16th, 17th, and 18th centuries were members of this group. At the end of the 19th century, the Alcantarines were joined with other Observant friars to form the Order of Friars Minor. As spiritual director to Saint Teresa, Peter encouraged her in promoting the Carmelite reform. His preaching brought many people to religious life, especially to the Secular Franciscan Order, the friars, and the Poor Clares. Peter of Alcantara was canonized in 1669. His liturgical feast is celebrated on September 22. Reflection Poverty was a means and not an end for Peter. The goal was following Christ in ever greater purity of heart. Whatever obstructed that path could be eliminated with no real loss. The philosophy of our consumer age—you are worth what you own—may find Peter of Alcantara's approach severe. Ultimately, his approach is life-giving while consumerism is deadly. Click here for quotes from Catholic saints! Saint of the Day, Copyright Franciscan Media

"Blest powers forbid thy tender life Should bleed upon a barbarous knife; Or some base hand have power to rase Thy breast's chaste cabinet, and uncase A soul kept there so sweet; oh no, Wise Heav'n will never have it so; Thou art Love's victim, and must die A death more mystical and high; Into Love's arms thou shalt let fall A still-surviving funeral." Richard Crashaw was a 17th-century English poet and Anglican priest who later in life converted to Catholicism. He taught at Cambridge and served as curate of the Church of St. Mary the Less, where he became known for his High Church Anglicanism. Puritan detractors cited him for his "Mariolatry", or excessive devotion to the Virgin Mary, and also found fault with his adornment of the church with Christian art and his use of Catholic vestments. Under Oliver Cromwell, Crashaw was expelled from his parish and forced to flee the country. It was during this exile that Crashaw converted to Catholicism, eventually ending up in Rome under the employment of a Catholic cardinal. This same cardinal would appoint him to be canon of the Shrine of the Holy House of Loreto, where Crashaw died a few short months later. Crashaw is known for his religious poetry with distinct mystical themes. He was inspired by the works of St. Teresa of Avila, despite the fact that in England she had yet to be translated and was largely unknown. Crashaw wrote three poems about St. Teresa, of which "A Hymn to the Name and Honour of Saint Teresa" is the first. In it, Crashaw traces a development from the child Teresa's desire for physical martyrdom to the adult Teresa's mystical conquest of the inner self. St. Teresa of Avila, pray for us!

It was the 16th century, a time of turmoil and reform. She was born before the Protestant Reformation and died almost 20 years after the closing of the Council of Trent. The gift of God to Teresa in and through which she became holy and left her mark on the Church and the world is threefold: She was a woman; she was a contemplative; she was an active reformer. As a woman, Teresa stood on her own two feet, even in the man's world of her time. She was “her own woman,” entering the Carmelites despite strong opposition from her father. She is a person wrapped not so much in silence as in mystery. Beautiful, talented, outgoing, adaptable, affectionate, courageous, enthusiastic, she was totally human. Like Jesus, she was a mystery of paradoxes: wise, yet practical; intelligent, yet much in tune with her experience; a mystic, yet an energetic reformer; a holy woman, a womanly woman. Teresa was a woman “for God,” a woman of prayer, discipline, and compassion. Her heart belonged to God. Her ongoing conversion was an arduous lifelong struggle, involving ongoing purification and suffering. She was misunderstood, misjudged, and opposed in her efforts at reform. Yet she struggled on, courageous and faithful; she struggled with her own mediocrity, her illness, her opposition. And in the midst of all this she clung to God in life and in prayer. Her writings on prayer and contemplation are drawn from her experience: powerful, practical, and graceful. She was a woman of prayer; a woman for God. Teresa was a woman “for others.” Though a contemplative, she spent much of her time and energy seeking to reform herself and the Carmelites, to lead them back to the full observance of the primitive Rule. She founded over a half-dozen new monasteries. She traveled, wrote, fought—always to renew, to reform. In her self, in her prayer, in her life, in her efforts to reform, in all the people she touched, she was a woman for others, a woman who inspired and gave life. Her writings, especially the Way of Perfection and The Interior Castle, have helped generations of believers. In 1970, the Church gave her the title she had long held in the popular mind: Doctor of the Church. She and St. Catherine of Siena were the first women so honored. Reflection Ours is a time of turmoil, a time of reform, and a time of liberation. Modern women have in Teresa a challenging example. Promoters of renewal, promoters of prayer, all have in Teresa a woman to reckon with, one whom they can admire and imitate.

Day 4: THE SOUL St. Teresa you have said “It is that we consider our soul to be like a castle made entirely out of a diamond or of very clear crystal, in which there are many rooms, just as in heaven there are many dwelling places. For in reflecting upon it carefully, Sisters, we realize that the soul of the just person is nothing else but a paradise where the Lord says He finds His delight...I don't find anything comparable to the magnificent beauty of a soul and its marvelous capacity. Indeed, our intellects, however keen, can hardly comprehend it, just as they cannot comprehend God' but He Himself says that He created us in His own image and likeness.” —Interior Castle I:1.1 The post A Novena to St. Teresa of Avila Day 4 – Discerning Hearts Podcast appeared first on Discerning Hearts Catholic Podcasts.
