EPISODE-LISTENING In this episode it’s time to unlock one of the keys to doing it little better…better listening. If we learn to listen to what’s going on around us with not only our two physical ears, but also with our “spiritual ears”, a beautiful symphony emerges. Deep stuff this week, Stu… Stu: “Namaste, all of you beautifully, exotic cocktails… Comment on Facebook, email us, we want to more of your stories! Article on Patheos by Tom Rapsas entitled, “5 Ways to Hear What God is Telling You.” Discernment: spiritual judgement and understanding, which comes from listening to God (i.e., the foundation of all life.). Allows us to sift through our impulses, motives and opinions. “IF GOD IS SPEAKING, HOW COME I DON’T HEAR IT?” PRAYER AND CONTEMPLATION Pondering is a lost art. Takes the focus off of “me”. Engage spiritual perception READING THE “BOOK OF NATURE” Feel the resonance with the universe. Appreciate beauty Enter into the rhythm Practice “oneness”. PAYING ATTENTION TO PEOPLE IN YOUR PATH Of course. There are no coincidences. Everyone is a channel for God to see the world. Namaste. Mainly look to primary relationships. Anyone can have impact and influence. Engage. ANALYZING THE EVENTS OF THE DAY “What might God be doing, here?” Look for confirming “billboards”. Take time to ponder both the welcome and the unwelcome events. Purpose to learn from the day. LOOK AT WHAT YOU ARE DRAWN TO READ [written or audio] Look for the Divine Communication Look for patterns Flesh out new thoughts and concepts with others. Be open-minded. THE “THEREFORE…”: Using discernment results in: Our lives are less chaotic and less filled with drama. Less anxious and fearful. More comfortable with solitude and with accepting uncertainty Discover a deep, inner peace. Mystic MacNugget: “Behold life instead of merely observing it. Kind of makes the whole…holy, doesn’t it?” -Mac

It's All So...Fragile...
EPISODE-FRAGILITY In this episode we’re going to talk about just how fragile everything is. In light of that, we want to come from a place of poise and not fear. Let’s talk about how to do that just a little bit better… Hey, Stu… Stu: “Namaste, all of you beautifully, exotic cocktails… Comment on Facebook, email us, we want to more of your stories! Play the clip: Saturday Night Lights, Season 1, Episode 1 “Give all of us that have gathered here tonight the strength to remember that life is so very fragile. We are all vulnerable. And we will all, at some point in our lives…fall. We will all fall. We must carry this in our hearts. That what we have is special. That it can be taken from us. And when it is taken from us, we will be tested. We will be tested to our very souls. We will all now be tested… STRENGTH To acknowledge and face the uncertainties. Strength that transcends the physical but speaks to the emotional and spiritual. It must be cultivated. Individually and corporately. FRAGILE Circumstances. Our “certainties” Relationships (divorce) Institutions, religions, democracy(USA) Life VULNERABLE It’s impossible to live life without “casualties”. We want to minimize them, not eliminate them. Some occupations create more vulnerability(risk) than others. FALL We aren’t always going to get it right. Fall from comfort. Bad stuff happens. THE HEART Pain Guilt Sorrow IT’S SPECIAL Life is a gift. Appreciate it. Humanity and spirituality. UNCERTAINTY Clarity over certainty Build in flexibility Animated and directed for whatever is next. TESTING Natural flow of life, not by God Take time to evaluate how you are doing Purpose to make learning a lifelong habit. Takeaway: To cultivate wisdom, poise, resilience, humility and a perspective that can embrace all of it with dignity and peace. Mystic MacNugget: “I’m so much more than the bad things that happen to me.” -Nightbirde Rephrase and substitute “We” for “I”.
