"What else is Christ but the Sound of God." (Acts of John) Today, research into the inner Sound mysticism of the Judeo-Christian and Gnostic traditions. Before the Sufi mystics of Islam, in ancient times there were Gnostics: Jewish, Hermetic, and Christian mystics who described hearing Heavenly Sound or Divine Music, and seeing mystic visions of Light and the heavens while in deep states of contemplative meditation.    The Sound of God is within everyone -- this Holy Stream of Sound -- is within every living being. This is why those given to exploring the Kingdoms of Inner Space through meditation, be they from the East or the West, have discovered this Reality playing within themselves.    "The soul-explorer is not alone, for there are those who have traveled the highways of the inner cosmos; far more than one may at first realize." (George Arnsby Jones)   "I heard a noise like wind blowing in my ears and knew it for the Sound of the Holy Spirit which became like the voice of a dove. When the Lord spoke to me I lost all sense of time. I did not know if he was with me five or six hours or only one. It was so holy and full of grace that I felt as if I had been in heaven." (Margery Kempe, The Mirror of Love)   "If you should in this world bring many thousand sorts of musical instruments together, and all should be tuned in the best manner most artificially, and the most skillful masters of music should play on them in concert together, all would be no more than the howlings and barkings of dogs in comparison of the Divine Music, which rises through the Divine Sound and tunes from Eternity to Eternity."  (Jacob Boehme, German Mystic)   "In the beginning was the Logos (the Word), the Logos was with God and the Logos was God." (Gospel of John 1: 1)   "The Divine Logos... is the helmsman and governor of the universe... The everlasting Logos of the eternal God is the very sure and staunch prop of the Whole... But the shadow of God is his Word [Logos], which he used like an instrument when he was making the world... Heaven is ever-making Music, producing in accordance with its celestial motions the Perfect Harmony. ... To such strains, it is said, Moses was listening, when, having become disembodied, for forty days and as many nights he touched neither bread nor water at all." (Philo of Alexandria, On The Music of the Spheres)   "Listen within yourself and look into the infinitude of Space and Time. There can be heard the songs of the Constellations, the voices of the Numbers, and the Harmonies of the Spheres."

Our recent culture has been obsessed with self-love, including me over the years. But something never set right with me about this self-love, separation language.  "I love myself."  Who is the "I" and who is the "self" when I AM Love?  That language still denotes separation and is a false reality.  I don't love myself...I AM. I AM LOVE. Love in my truest state and nothing has ever been separated from this love. Only the mind can separate us from love, never the heart.  So do I need self-love OR...as the Sufi mystics tell us, along with countless Judeo-Christian and Buddist teachings...learn to BECOME Love that wipes away the illusion of separation? These are deep, mystical concepts that, if embraced, contemplated, and meditatated on, can set us all free.  (@womanscircle, (@christablackgifford @iamlukegifford)

Why is passionate love stupid?

 All Religions are telling us that we should omit a passionate, sexual love.Because when we are passionate we lose our calmness and can't find peace in our mind. When we live our passions, and the greatest passion is love, we lose our fears and in the end, we will find peace in our mind.If we don't live our passions, we suppress our fears and many years later the suppressed fears will cripple our life. And that result we can see in the old people. Most of the old people want to dictate our life that we should not live a passionate sexual love. Because they didn't have lived it either; cannot live it anymore; and they are jealous of the young people.In the famous novel “Siddharta” written by Herman Hesse, is a guy who had the longing to find the truth and renounced his worldly life. Siddharta could understand that renunciation will not lead to anything. Afterward, he was engaged in a passionate worldly life and when he was fed up with the worldly life he renunciate again. Again, he was drawn in a worldly life and finally he found the truth… I lived a similar life, was a devotee of Bhagwan; I found God in a tantric love and then I was 12 years in meditation retreats with celibacy… And now, I live both…The famous Sufi book: “Conference of the birds” written by Attar wants both: to renunciate the world and to live a passionate sexual life. Why? Attar was one of the greatest Sufis … he could understand that the greatest renunciation is to love a woman. For that, we should be well trained in the renunciation of the world. Otherwise, our love will be shallow and not so deep that we can discover God/Allah in our love. If you are 90 years old, do you think that you will regret that you could not live a passionate love? With 90 years you can't live that love anymore. Why not take your chance now, live your passionate sexual love and don't be afraid of the suffering…. In the end, you have done well. My Video: Why is passionate love stupid? https://youtu.be/jrh_NDJwu58My Audio: https://divinesuccess.net/wp-content/uploads/2021/Podcast.B/Why-is-passionate-love-stupid.mp3

Alnoor Ladha & Lynn Murphy -- Healing Wealth in the Time of Collapse

Awakin Call

Play Episode Listen Later Sep 24, 2022


“Post capitalist philanthropy is a paradox in terms. A paradox is the appropriate starting place for the complex, entangled, messy context we find ourselves in as a species.” This is how long-time activists, political strategists, and “accidental philanthropy advisors” Alnoor Ladha and Lynn Murphy start their forthcoming book on Post Capitalist Philanthropy. The authors take us on a journey from the history of wealth accumulation to the current logic of late-stage capitalism – and ultimately to the lived possibilities of other ways of knowing, sensing and being that can usher in life-centric models. This “ontological shift”, as they call it, into new possibilities is at the heart of their work. Creating new-ancient-emerging realities is not simply about how we redistribute wealth or “fight power”, but rather, how we perceive and embody our actions in relationship to a dynamic, animistic world and cosmos. Their book is a result of decades of deep personal inquiry and practice, as well as lifelong engagement with activists, philanthropists, philosophers, social scientists, cosmologists and wisdom keepers. Alnoor Ladha comes from a Sufi lineage and writes about the crossroads of politics and spirituality in troubled times. His work focuses on the intersection of political organizing, systems thinking, structural change and narrative work. He was the co-founder and Executive Director of The Rules, a global network of activists, organizers, designers, coders, researchers, writers and others focused on changing the rules that create inequality, poverty and climate change. TR started in 2012 as a time-bound project and an experiment in temporary organizational design, exploring new ways of how to work, play, and make trouble together. His work has been published in Al Jazeera, The Guardian, Truthout, Fast Company, Kosmos Journal, New Internationalist, and the Huffington Post among others. He is a board member of Culture Hack Labs, a co-operatively run advisory for social movements and progressive organizations. He holds an MSc in Philosophy and Public Policy from the London School of Economics. Lynn Murphy is a strategic advisor for foundations and NGOs working in the geopolitical South. She was a senior fellow and program officer at the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation where she focused on international education and global development. She resigned as a “conscientious objector” to neocolonial philanthropy. She holds an MA and PhD in international comparative education from Stanford University. She is also a certified Laban/Bartenieff movement analyst.  Lynn and Alnoor are co-directors of The Transition Resource Circle, a group focused on the broader transition from our current meta-crisis to adjacent possible futures. TRC seeks to work with resources and resource holders to alchemize and liberate capital to be in service to Life. They work through circle ways – “e.g. non-hierarchical, embodied cognition approaches, psycho-spiritual practices to move from a culture of entitlement to ways which honor the multiple entanglements of historical precedents, our respective lineages & karmic storylines, and what future beings (including ourselves) require for reconciliation and healing.” TRC focuses on philanthropy as it has the potential to play a critical role in rebalancing wealth, power and historical injustices. Join us in conversation with these heartful and soulful thinkers and doers.

New Martyr John of Epirus (1814)

Saint of the Day

He was born to Muslim parents in Konitsa of Albania — the ancient region of Epirus. His father was a prominent ruler among the Muslims and a member of the Sufi order, sometimes called dervishes, a mystical Islamic sect. John himself became a prominent Sufi and settled in Joannina. Though not a Christian, he attended to his conscience and lived a sober and prayerful life.   Over time, he became increasingly attracted to the Christian faith and, in time, asked for holy Baptism. No Christian in his region dared to baptize him, knowing the reprisals that would follow. So John migrated to Ithaka, was baptized, and settled there in a village called Xiromeron, where he married and lived as a simple countryman. In 1813, John's father somehow learned where he was, and that he had become a Christian. He sent two Sufis to bring him back and restore him to the Muslim faith. Because of this, the Ottoman authorities on Ithaka learned who he was and brought him before a judge. To each of the judge's questions John would only reply 'I am a Christian and I am called John.'   Realizing that no amount of persuasion or coercion would move him, the authorities determined to behead him. At his execution, since they would not loose his hands so that he could make the sign of the Cross, John cried out 'Lord, Remember me when Thou comest into Thy Kingdom!' With these words he submitted himself to a Martyr's end. The Turks intended to leave his body for the dogs, but pious Christians retrieved it and secretly gave it honorable burial.

Odes of Solomon, Lost Psalms of Early Christianity Discovered

Out of all the apocryphal writings I've collected, I think the Odes of Solomon is the most beautiful, inspiring and inspired. It is the would-be book of New Testament psalms! The Book of the Odes has been described as the first known hymn-book of early Christianity. They have nothing to do with "Solomon" but somewhere-along-the-way got mislabeled and assigned to the genre of Old Testament Apocrypha as the Odes represent one of the earliest of Christian documents near the beginning of the Jesus movement within Judaism and so composed before a time when there were many Jewish or Christian writings associated with a "new covenant", and long before the concept of a New Testament canon or collection of scriptures was conceived of. Thus, this collection of psalms was named in a way that's reminiscent of how some scriptures were assigned names during the time of the Dead Sea Scrolls and the pseudepigraphical literature. This indicates a very early date of composition. The Odes of Solomon consist of 41 psalms. The Odes are believed to have originated in either Antioch or Edessa in Syriac-Aramaic most likely during the First Century AD. One scholar (James Charlesworth) said of the Odes, "Here are some of the most beautiful songs of peace and joy that the world possesses." The New Testament scholar Bentley Layton says that the Odes were considered to be inspired scripture and were chanted by Christians who lived in Syria and all around Mesopotamia about 2,000 years ago. J. Rendel Harris, the discoverer of one Syriac-Aramaic manuscript of the Odes, said the Odes were eventually included in the Sahidic Bible of Egypt. These ecstatic hymns remind me of Rumi or Sufi love poetry in the tradition of "the lover and the Beloved." They also remind me of the Sikh scriptures (Adi Granth) and mystic poetry of the Sants. Many have adopted the practice of contemplating the verses of the Odes and report being brought to a deeper level of devotion (bhakti); being caught up in a love-affair with God, the Ocean of Love. That's also been my experience.   In Divine Love, Light and Sound, Peace Be To You,   James Bean   Sant Mat Satsang Podcasts Spiritual Awakening Radio https://www.SpiritualAwakeningRadio.com     Spiritual Awakening Radio (and Sant Mat Satsang Podcasts) with James Bean, heard on various community, public radio stations and the web, explores the world of spirituality, comparative religion, world scriptures and other books, East and West, God, meditation, out of body or near death experiences (inner space), the vegan diet and other ahimsa ethics -- education for a more peaceful planet.

Expectation“Once in a winter time, a King was roaming outside his palace. At night when he was entering his palace, he saw an old man at the entry gate of palace.When the King got close he saw that he was an old man who was wearing very thin cloths which were not even warm. The King was surprised to see that how that old man was able to keep up in that cold weather even in those clothes.So he stopped near that old man and said, “Aren't you feeling cold?”The old man replied, “I am feeling cold but what to do? I don't have any warm clothes to wear. For many years I bear this cold weather without warm clothes. God gives me strength to bear this and live through winter time. ”King Qahhar felt pity and said, “Don't worry.. You wait here and We will send someone with warm clothes for you..”Old man felt happy and thanked the King for his kindness.Once the King entered palace, he forget about his talk with the old man and got busy with his routine.Next morning, when a soldier approached, they saw the cold, stricken body of that old man. Beside his body was a message written in the dirt by that old man before dying.Long live the King. I had been living wearing these thin clothes in such cold weather for so long. But last night your promise of giving me a warmth took my life..”Expectations from Others can become a reason of Weakness if not met. Therefore, One should Learn to Live on his Own Strength and will power.A saying, “Expectation is the root of all heartache.”In Search of a MasterA man went in search of a Master. He was ready to go around the world, but he was determined to find the Master, the true Master, the Perfect Master.Outside his village he met an old man, a nice fellow, sitting under a tree. He asked the old man, “Have you ever heard in your long life — you look like a wanderer…”He said, “Yes, I am a wanderer. I wandered all over the earth.”The man said, “That is the right kind of person. Can you suggest to me where I should go? I want to be a disciple of a Perfect Master.”The old man suggested a few addresses to him, and the young man thanked him and went on.After thirty years of wandering around the earth and finding nobody who was exactly fulfilling his expectations, he came back dejected, depressed. the moment he was entering his village he saw the old man who had become very old now, sitting under the tree. And suddenly he recognized that he is the Master! He fell at his feet and he said, “Why didn't you say it to me, that you are the Master?”The old man said, “But that was not time for you. You could not recognize me. You needed some experience. Wandering around the earth has given you a certain maturity, a certain understanding. Now you can see. Last time you had met me, but you had not seen me. You had missed. You were asking me about some Master. That was enough proof that you could not see me, you could not feel my presence, you could not smell the fragrance. You were utterly blind; hence I gave you some bogus addresses so you could go. But even to be with wrong people is good, because that is how one learns. For thirty years I have been waiting for you here, I have not left this tree.”In fact the young man, who was not young anymore, looked at the tree and was even more surprised.

How Josh and Gwen met for the first time in Sedona, Arizona when he went there to do a training with Carrie. What it's been like for Gwen to be back in Austin, Texas after about 40 years since she last visited it. The fact that Gwen was actually conceived in Austin and that's why it felt like home for her when she visited it in 1983. Unpacking how we can allow ourselves to be and feel more free in our skin. How growing up in a Mediterranean culture where differences are celebrated allows Gwen to see how homogenous American culture and identity are all over the country. What Gwen's 'Breath is Prayer' medicine is and how it helped Josh let go of held-back emotions. Why experience is vital if you're going to facilitate and hold space as you lead a breathwork ceremony. The fact that the average adult is only using 30% of their lung capacity. Why sometimes people are so triggered and afraid by the idea of doing the inner work that they don't even begin it. Exploring the deeply embedded thought in our psyche that everything we need is outside of ourselves when that isn't true. Why we are so afraid to authentically express ourselves out of fear of being punished. [10:40] The Core of Behavioral Dysfunction What microtrauma is and how Josh did it to himself when he would watch porn or not speak his truth when he was a child. Why energy from trauma doesn't just go away; it transmutes. Unpacking the core of dysfunction: being out of alignment with our natural way of being. Why freedom is something that we already have and how we can unblock ourselves to obtain it. The moments of freedom that Gwen has experienced and witnessed in others while doing breathwork. Why just doing breathwork is not enough; the release it gives us is fleeting and so it must be practiced consistently to help us feel free and in alignment. The fact that it takes 90 seconds for an emotion to move through us + what it is about our psyche that blocks them. Going beyond the intellectualization of our healing to focus on somatic healing. 249 SOMA Breath For Less Stress: Niraj Naik 410 Mark Divine | Positive Neurodiversity: Kokoro Spirit, The 5 Mountains For Inner Peace, & How To Fulfill Your Potential Why Gwen was the only breathwork teacher that made Josh feel like he could teach other people. [20:00] The Art of the Breath: What Skills a Facilitator Needs What to expect when working with Gwen both in groups and private sessions. The embodied learning that people go through when they do Gwen's breathwork facilitator program. Differences between feeling ready to practice breathwork compared to facilitating a session. What the best training she ever did was and why she did trainings for 3.5 years before becoming a facilitator. The Passion Test by Janet Bray Attwood - The Passion Test Common breathing mistakes we're making without even realizing it including holding our breath (especially exhales) for extended periods of time. The fact that more and more people are turning to breathwork as we experience more stress as a collective. How to go about selecting a breathwork program according to Gwen. Why it's so important to be a facilitator who creates such a safe space for participants that no matter what comes up, they can be there and support the people participating in the session. What usually comes up for people when they do breathwork and why trauma is present in various ways from crying and shaking to laughter or coughing. Gwen's own intense breathwork moment with a client and why it could've been an ego stripping or something from his past being let go. [34:20] We'll Always Be a Student of Life Josh Trent: Solocast | Healing The Father Wound, 100+ Hours Fasting, Vision Questing + Being Alone With Mother Nature's Wisdom The best way to use breath to assist an emotion as it makes its way through the body in 90 seconds. Why having an open mouth during breathwork makes such a difference because there is a lot of control held within the jaw. The fact that we can never fully become a master at anything until we accept that we are a student. Gwen's thirst for always growing, learning, and becoming an even better breathwork facilitator and trainer. Her experience growing up in North Africa in an atheist/agnostic household and why it was the most educational and informative experience for her. Why both Josh and Gwen feel like they didn't find the power of breathwork, it found them. The fact that Gwen's great aunt was a spiritual teacher ever since her early 20s and how that influenced her mother. What a Sufi retreat is and what most people get wrong about sufism. Where and when Gwen was first introduced to breathwork for the first time in her life. [45:00] How to Listen to Your Own Authentic Guidance System Gwen's experience attending Stanford and the pressure she felt to go since her parents both went there and chose the professor career route. The trauma that Gwen experienced in her upbringing and why being there with her parents while they were in hospice impacted her heart the most and that's when she really found her grit. Her experience being a single mother and fighting for her children in different ways. How breathwork and other inner work practices have helped her shift her trauma and difficult experiences into something that has made her stronger. Why she strongly believes that we all need mentors and even multiple ones to help us develop. Paleo(Fx) Who she turned to for help and support when she didn't receive that from her family. Why a person cannot do something like what Gwen does without going through a continuous healing process themselves. [55:30] The Breath is Prayer Experience 311 Mark Wolynn | It Didn't Start With You: Ending The Cycle of Inherited Trauma 366 Mark Wolynn | How To Heal Generational Trauma: The Thoughts, Feelings, Patterns & Behaviors Formed Before You Were Ever Born The vomiting response Josh had during a breathing ceremony that Gwen guided the night before and why he believes that happened. What to expect during a Breath is Prayer experience with Gwen. Why it's not uncommon for people to feel nauseous, dizzy, or even feel the need to go to the bathroom during a breathwork ceremony. The fact that Josh is still feeling the powerful medicine from last night's breathwork practice. How deep early childhood programming leads to our subconscious not wanting to feel and unpack our emotions, especially those we need to heal. [1:01:00] Why Death Can be Our Greatest Advisor Exploring the concept of death and how sometimes Josh and Gwen have experienced unique "death-like" out-of-body sensations during breathwork and for Josh also Ayahuasca ceremonies. Why the idea of death as her advisor has been a philosophy for Gwen for many years. The powerful exercise she did in which she was told death was coming and she had to prepare by writing letters to people and her own will. Lessons that death has taught her about how to be and live her life. How her grandmother's illness with polio and needing to walk with crutches showed up for Gwen in her epigenetics, beliefs, and healing journey. The deeply imprinted belief Gwen had at one point that she could not trust life. Molecules of Emotion: The Science Behind Mind-Body Medicine by Candace B. Pert The Biology of Belief by Bruce Lipton How Family Constellations has expanded to the Systemic as well (such as the soul of a business for example) or the Collective to find out where energy is being blocked or not properly healed. [1:10:00] How Breath Exposes What's Already There Mindbody University What fascinated Gwen about breathwork the most to become a facilitator. How she has combined breathwork with the passion test, hypnotherapy, and epigenetic trauma. The incredible fact that we are breathing the same breath that our ancestors did. How you can combine breathwork with other healing modalities such as Family Constellations. The power of just doing a regular if not daily 3-10 minute breathwork practice. Gwen's powerful practice that she always does at the end of each of her own breathwork practices. Why Gwen says that "Breathwork doesn't bring anything new, it just exposes what's already there." Gwen's gift to the audience including an online breathwork ceremony recording. What Gwen believes is the meaning of her being a breathwork facilitator and life coach in Sedona. Why she believes we should all be striving to be the most authentic version of ourselves. The fact that it's just so much easier to trust a healer who is open about what they themselves are working on like in Gwen's case. What wellness means for Gwen with all of her life and work experiences. Power Quotes From The Show Letting Go of Our Collective Fear of Emotion "Collectively, we have such a profound fear of emotions. If people were to really go in and sort of take a magnifying glass approach at some of the beliefs that they hold in their body that have been imprinted on them, not that they consciously think these thoughts but they have them: 'If I feel this I will die,' or 'If I feel this I will go crazy,' or 'If I feel this I will never come back from it,' and on and on. So, people just fight it tooth and nail and the truth of the matter is if we could open up and allow that energy to flow through us, it's pretty easy. It might be intense but it's pretty easy." - Gwen Payne We're Only Using 30% of Our Lung's Capacity on Average "Do you know how little people are breathing? 30% is what the average American adult is said to breathe of their functional lung capacity. Only 30% is essentially starvation mode for the cells of your body and for your brain. You are literally living in survival mode and I don't think as a society we can help but feel anxious and depressed. If there is one thing I would encourage people to do, it's to breathe more." - Gwen Payne How Breathwork Unlocks Our Essential Nature "In breathwork, one of the things that I find so impactful is that concepts become viscerally experienced, and then it's an embodiment. In that moment of embodiment, there's nothing else that we're focusing on outside of ourselves; nothing. It's part of our essential nature. Those are the moments of freedom that I have experienced and witnessed in others. It's an experience of tuning the world out and letting go of what energies we have been carrying, releasing, bringing our attention inwards, and only then can we really experience that freedom." - Gwen Payne Links From Today's Show  Inspired Sedona Gwen's Gift to You! 249 SOMA Breath For Less Stress: Niraj Naik 410 Mark Divine | Positive Neurodiversity: Kokoro Spirit, The 5 Mountains For Inner Peace, & How To Fulfill Your Potential The Passion Test by Janet Bray Attwood - The Passion Test Josh Trent: Solocast | Healing The Father Wound, 100+ Hours Fasting, Vision Questing + Being Alone With Mother Nature's Wisdom Paleo(Fx) 311 Mark Wolynn | It Didn't Start With You: Ending The Cycle of Inherited Trauma 366 Mark Wolynn | How To Heal Generational Trauma: The Thoughts, Feelings, Patterns & Behaviors Formed Before You Were Ever Born Molecules of Emotion: The Science Behind Mind-Body Medicine by Candace B.

Gwen was born in Italy, grew up in Tunisia, and attending boarding schools in Europe throughout high school before moving to United States to attend Stanford University. Gwen credits her diversity and cultural experiences as the most formative education of her life – one that provided her unique vision and perspective upon which she draws in her work.   Gwen's Passion for Breathwork At the age of 21, Gwen stumbled across breathwork when she took part in her for spiritual retreat. She has remained passionate about it ever since. When she found a breathwork school years later, it's solidified her journey with the breath and her calling to share its power.

SUMMARYIf you've ever struggled with the idea of meditation, try this out: How about no beads, no sitting cross-legged, no chants or ashram journeys? The transcendental practice developed by Host Chris Schembra's guest on this episode of the Gratitude Through Hard Time podcast speaks to all of us who want to embody our deepest visions but find our busy minds get in the way. Vishen Lakhiani's practice, "The Six Phase Guided Meditation," skips the things that make mindfulness a challenge – especially for frenetic, creative entrepreneurs. As he lays out in his new book, coming out this week, his program's goals are transformational not because of a series of disciplines or rituals but because they bring alignment in the most direct, simplest of ways.Vishen's journey to wholeness began 20 years ago, when he abandoned a burnout job in Silicon Valley. That decision to look for a deeper connection with himself and others has culminated in the fundamentals he spells out in his compelling new book, "The Six Phase Guided Meditation" and can also be explored via his Mind Valley apps and the hugely popular seminar he conducts in cities across the world. If you're ready to “dream bigger,” then this episode will give you a powerful starting place to shift your mindset and make real what you see and feel. In wrapping up, Vishen reminds us that luck is something we can choose. Reality is something we can bend. And a more abundant world is something we can create, through the unity that lies within us all. “This is the grand magic trick that makes life easy; that helps build incredible businesses,” he says. “This is the secret that helps you live a life that seems blessed.”Whether you think you are an expert at meditation or that meditating is impossible for you, Vishen's new book is a must-read. It's transformational. Pre-Order before 9/20 and get 500 Customizable Meditations through his APP to use for a year - FREE!

And you can find out much more about Chris and his 7:47 Virtual Gratitude Experience at this link. KEY TOPICS:If you could give credit or thanks to one person in your life who hasn't been given enough credit or thanks, who would that be? Vishen recognizes his ex-wife for being an “incredible entity” and wonderful mother to his children.On souls and how Vishen believes they were meant to function – not necessarily as monogamous mates for life.Advancing Humanity: Businesses are capable of raising universal consciousness, but it doesn't have to be a blanket effort. Vishen challenges every owner to evolve individually towards consciousness and spiritual growth for the greater good.Our ultimate growth is rooted in awareness of our powers within, the consciousness we connect with and extend beyond our physical bodies.The Concept of Unity: Separation is a protective mechanism – and illusion.Try this exercise from the Sufi poet and thinker, Rumi: Close your eyes and think about the message you want to communicate in silence to another person and remember – whatever energy you put out is what you will receive back.Studies of gratitude practices and forgiveness confirm that they yield positive benefits, such as:Once we recognize how intrinsically connected we are to everything else on the planet, we move towards unity and understanding of the oneness we all share.The Truth About Meditation:How Transcendent Practices work by:About "The Six Phase Guided Meditation":About the Pillars of Happiness and Vision that comprise Vishen's six phases.Vishen reflects on the criticism and rejection he experienced at one point from peers in his native Malaysia and how he persevered with his practice, using it to transform his response to one of compassion.Dreaming Big: About using creative visualization to reprogram our brains and deliver a mindset embedded with powerful belief and emotional connection.All About Dan Sullivan's Happiness Gap and how Vishen has incorporated it.Vishen's Ultimate Hope: For people to understand that we are all spiritual beings having a human experience and that everything starts with tapping into the power of our souls and intuition, our ability to manifest the future and connect with all life.Parting Thought: The secret is to live in harmony, balancing balancing play, minimizing stress and overwhelm, feeling God's blessing – the love – everyday. QUOTABLE“Your business is not the most important thing. Your business, rather, is the ultimate vehicle for your personal evolution.” (Vishen)“If your business fails, it doesn't matter. If your business hits a billion dollars, it doesn't matter. What matters is that running your business is helping you grow.” (Vishen)“The greatest thing we can do as humans is move toward unity … and our own fundamental truth.” (Vishen)“Our consciousness never actually ends. It blends into all life. We are connected to plants, to energies, to animals. We are connected not just to our family but to the homeless person we pass on the street. When you can move towards that level of understanding, you cannot hurt someone else.” (Vishen)“What Vishen has done is written a book and invented a method that gives you access to this internal way of being through a 15- to 20-minute transcendental meditation.” (Chris)“What makes you an entrepreneur is the fact that your mind is constantly, creating, jumping from one thing to another. That is your superpower. You do not want to slow that down.” (Vishen)“Even the people who are judging you, the people who are tearing you down, their souls are connected to you. They are not necessarily evil or bad. They are simply people who are unaware of who they are and probably going through their own moments of grief, jealousy or bitterness.” (Vishen)“By creating a transcendent practice that shifts you into a mindset of love and compassion, gratitude, forgiveness, vision-making and happiness – all these things – you are relying on your agency to create that change. You don't have to rely on others to fix themselves in order for a conflict to be healed.” (Chris)“The Law of Attraction isn't based on your wants. It's based really on your resonance. The universe doesn't give you what you want. Rather, it gives you who you are.” (Vishen)“If you can appreciate how far you've come and live in that feeling of appreciation, what happens is that … what you appreciate appreciates.” (Vishen) LINKS/FURTHER RESOURCES:Learn more about Vishen's latest and previous books here.Neal Donald Walsch's book, "Conversations With God."About the program that kickstarted Vishen's own work: The Silva Method.Find out more about the Arbinger Institute's book, "The Anatomy of Peace: Resolving the Heart of Conflict."Dan's Sullivan's book, "The Gap and The Gain: The High Achievers' Guide to Happiness, Confidence and Success."Historian Ron Chernow's book, "Titan: The Life of John D.

Christine Stevens -- Drumming Up Spirit in Nature and Communities

Awakin Call

Play Episode Listen Later Sep 10, 2022


“It is not what music does,” writes Christine Stevens, “it is what music undoes.” In July 2022, as a crimson supermoon lit up the sky in Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming, Christine Stevens sat afloat in a kayak, beholding the still, alpine waters of Jenny Lake and attuning to the wisdom offered by the natural world. When the time was ripe, she reached into her backpack, took out the wooden flute that usually accompanies her, and played a mesmerizing ode to the moon. A certified naturalist, poet, and music therapist who has worked globally with survivors of trauma, war, and disasters, Christine was now preparing for her annual vision quest—alone for four days, fasting, and silent. Deeply connected with music and nature since a young age, Christine grew up in an “outdoorsy family,” adored her grandfather’s tree farm, and learned to play the piano and saxophone. Up until high school, however, she felt alone whenever she performed music. Then one day, she volunteered in a classroom of autistic children. They joined her in playing music together. And it was there that she discovered her life calling, going on to receive two master's degrees—one in music therapy, the other in social work.  Although her current work is comprised in large part by drumming (Upbeat Drum Circles), it wasn’t easy at first. “I thought I had no sense of rhythm at all,” Christine reflects. “I almost failed the percussion class in college.” But she stumbled into a drum circle while attending a music conference and immediately felt transformed by the energy. She learned to play congas and improvise freely. Inspired by the ease of handling drums, their spiritual depth, and historical significance, Christine became a “musical ambassador of peace,” bringing their healing potential to communities touched by significant trauma: Columbine High School, Ground Zero after 9/11, and Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans. Most recently, she worked with Iraqi refugees and created the first drum circle training program in northern Iraq. As a member of an integrative research team, she has published multiple studies on the scientific benefits of group drumming, including research that showed an increase in immunity and T-cells in participants of drum circles. Her book, Music Medicine: The Science and Spirit of Healing Yourself With Sound, goes deeper into music as a healing modality and teaches a paradigm of music that integrates the four directions and four elements with the four dimensions of the human being.  When it comes to spiritual background and beliefs, Christine is a self-described “smogasbordian.” She has been influenced by The Soul Saving Station for Every Nation, the Quakers, the Sufi lineage of Hazrat Inayat Khan, and the Agape International Spiritual Center in Los Angeles—the latter in which her co-leading of the Drum Ministry has “really helped [her] consciousness of positive thought and affirmative prayer.” In her forties, she was adopted into the Lakota people after a sweat lodge purification ceremony and elaborate offerings of song, feast, and gifts. In addition to grassroots communities, Christine has also worked with the Department of Defense and many Fortune 500 companies including DuPont, Disney, and Verizon. For the general public, she offers multiple YouTube videos teaching simple rhythms with drummers from around the world.  Her other books include The Nature Sutras, The Healing Drum Kit, and The Art and Heart of Drum Circles. She is a contributing writer for magazines like US News and World Report, Fitness, and The Christian Science Monitor.  Ultimately, she feels her mission is to embody, with or without instruments, the music that moves through her and to support others in realizing that they, too, are music. Please join Mina Lee in conversation with this musician and poet of Earth’s wild beauty, and learn with us some ways to awaken through rhythmic and playful expression.

Do you want to find your life partner? Stupid question, right? Of course you do. You've had enough disappointing, unhealthy, short-lived relationships and you want something healthy and lasting.   The question is, how? How do you find your life partner in today's crazy, digital world?   Well, today's episode is part two of a 7-part series where Roy shares pithy, powerful wisdom from some of the most respected gurus, mystics and masters that have ever lived.   And this week's “Quantum Quote” comes from an ancient mystic Sufi poet by the name of Rumi.   And believe it or not, even though Rumi lived in the 13th century and was completely unfamiliar with today's dating complexities and challenges, he shares profound wisdom—wisdom that stands the test of time—on how to find your life partner.   Additional Resources Roy may have mentioned on the show:   Roy's Website: https://coachingwithroy.com   Roy's Relationship Fitness Self-Assessment Test: https://coachingwithroy.com/the-relationship-fitness-self-test/   Roy's 3 Books: Relationship Bootcamp: https://amzn.to/360UsMR Attracting Lasting Love: http://amzn.to/1UnYeYh A Drink with Legs: https://amzn.to/31UBl3K   Roy's Group Coaching Program: https://coachingwithroy.com/group-coaching/   Roy's Complimentary 45-min.

Dave Brisbin 9.4.22 Jesus' Way, the practice of presence, of stepping away from the verbal use and abuse of the mind, is impossible to put into words. Since we are putting words aside in order to experience real presence, words can never detail what we find there. At least not directly. One of the best attempts to describe a transcendent, contemplative experience is a poem of course, A Great Wagon by Rumi, a 13th century Sufi mystic. It's the one with the famous line: Out beyond ideas of rightdoing and wrongdoing, there is a field. I'll meet you there. Though that line gets all the attention, each line and metaphor points toward a going beyond everything we think holds life in place. Beyond law, morality, ethics, logic, theology, doctrine, material possessions, even the laws of physics and any illusion of certainty, there is a field. When we lie down in that grass, the world is too full to talk about. Ideas, language, even the phrase each other doesn't make any sense. As humans, even after having such an experience of being, we will still wake the next day empty and afraid. But if we don't fly back to our words, if we keep playing the music, even the breeze at dawn has secrets to tell. The poet then warns us three times: don't go back to sleep. It's all about awareness, about waking up inside our waking lives. Most of us are sleepwalking, barely conscious of the unseen unity at the core of life, the perfect love that alone has power great enough to cast out fear. Fears that make us crave those word-based enemies of presence: law, logic, material possessions, whatever makes us feel powerful and certain. But waking up takes time and a persevering desire for more than physical life seems to hold. As Rumi says, the music of a desire as widespread as Spring begins to move like a great wagon. Drive slowly. Some of us walking alongside are lame! Waking up is a slow process, and we all go back to sleep at one point or another. Life is too traumatic at times to always keep eyes open. But to lie in the grass of that field out-beyond even once, is to have found the awareness and desire to wake again, eyes open longer each time we do.
