When you see prayer pictured in a photograph, what do you see? Today’s article shares prayer secrets revealed by Stage Three Energetic Literacy. My last article introduced this topic. Including why I think it’s fair to research public prayer. Not private prayer, but prayer on display at a media event.
Before reading further, would you do this quick experiment? Click on the link above and look at the woman who is front and center. Gladys holds hands in prayer position; her mouth is open.
Take a quick look and then put your reaction into words. Is this a moving prayer? Do you find it courageous, beautiful, what? Please write a comment below. Then continue with the rest of today’s article. CONTINUE READING →
Maybe that’s just what it turns out to be. Not on purpose, necessarily. But when religious people engage in prayer, knowing that reporters and cameras are present, prayer ceases being just a private moment, doesn’t it?
Joe and Gladys, doing their best. Only now it’s a media event. They’re seeking to bear witness, perhaps. Or even to convert others who see their glow….
I hope all you Blog-Buddies appreciate that I mean no disrespect when I break the Age of Faith taboo about applying skills of aura reading to explore what actually happens, energetically. What a poignant, complex, humbling human story it can be. CONTINUE READING →
Face reading Spike Lee is a kind of first for this blog. Today, for the first time, I’ll profile someone whose creativity specializes in anger.
It’s a righteous anger, I get that. Until I started preparing this face reading, the following thought never occurred to me:
I don’t think I’ve ever watched a movie or TV show or listened to music whose primary purpose included expressing anger. Neither justified anger, nor stored-up anger. Not random anger, and not even the special form of rage and resentment that gets froze into Goth.
The closest I’ve come has been to watch something that transmuted anger or resentment into laughter. Such as political satire or Saturday Night Live-style spoofing.
How about you, Blog-Buddies? Who is the angriest singer or songwriter you’ve ever loved? Have you ever left a movie — whether Spike Lee’s or someone else’s — and concluded, “Exploring that rage, unfairness, and misery… really was important for me.”
Of course, stakes are high in choosing to play the Householder Enlightenment Game. Because many of us have spent so many lifetimes seeking the other kind of Enlightenment, playing that thrilling game instead.
Differently beautiful, what used to be the only Enlightenment game in town? The Surrender Model of Enlightenment.CONTINUE READING →
Freedom living, yeah! Surprisingly (or not), you’ve got that that available now. Freedom, and to a degree that may thrill your soul but otherwise terrify you.
Terrify you, at least, until you consciously understand what is happening on earth to human awareness. Inner shakiness and dread are common for millions of people. What can help? Start to live “The New Strong.”
Freedom living results. This new kind of freedom begins with understanding that we live in a different era, The Age of Awakening.
Today is the four-year anniversary of the biggest event of our lifetimes. Also the single most important thing that has happened on earth for thousands of years: The Shift into The Age of Awakening. CONTINUE READING →
Householder Enlightenment Model — what a great thing to celebrate! Especially since tomorrow is the four-year anniversary of The Age of Awakening.
Here Blog-Buddy JEM shares a powerful guest post about her reaction to the Householder Enlightenment Model. It’s so different from the sacred and hallowed and traditional model for thousands of years. I call that the “Surrender Model of Enlightenment.”
And it’s really very, very different. Go, JEM!
Discovering The Householder Enlightenment Model
Gee, this is great news, this Householder Enlightenment thing.
By contrast, I’m used to the more traditional form of Enlightenment, the “Surrender Model of Enlightenment.” Where it was aaaalllll about divine bliss and consciousness. This different model really did a number on me energetically. CONTINUE READING →
Awkward relatives — will they spoil your Christmas holiday? Or some other holiday? What can you do when family members are invited to gather around your holiday table and… You. Just. Don’t. Like. Them. ?????????
As a professional at Rosetree Energy Spirituality (RES) and survivor of my share of holidays with awkward relatives — I thought I’d share a few ideas with you. Also invite you to share your ideas as well.
Because chances are, many members of our informal RES community are planning for the worst. Or dreading with a nameless kind of hopelessness, akin to a stuffed and trussed turkey.
Gotta love the custom of relatives together at family gatherings! (Or maybe not.)
God gets what, exactly, from this nutty Earth School? Have you ever wondered?
What a beautiful yet baffling world! A world in which Oxford Dictionaries selected “post-truth” as the new word for 2016. Lately, certain voters not thrilled with Trump or Brexit… might wish for an ice cream scoop or something to pry us out of bed in the morning.
Were you shocked to learn how popular it is now, wishing that God would install a control chip in your brain? CONTINUE READING →
