Streetsmarts and Spirituality

Unfortunately, many of us are trying desperately to avoid having to really participate in the experience of living here on this planet, through many different means. In so doing we miss the growth experience—something our guest today calls “Earth School.” She tells us that our emotions are leading us back to earth school—where we will learn more about life, about ourselves and about spirituality. Carol Kline is far from unfamiliar with radio and TV having served as a reporter and TV and radio anchor both in Japan and in America, even receiving awards as the top female anchor in her area. Today she has her own radio show and she facilitates workshops and offers life coaching and has authored the book “Streetwise Spirituality: 28 Days to Inner Fitness & Everyday Enlightenment,” the subject of our discussion today. Sometimes our spiritual teachings are so ethereal that we can’t get grounded. Today, we are going to get grounded. Don’t miss it.

Leaning into the Mystery

We do need to know don’t we! We need to think that we know, that we are certain, that we are sure. Most of our traditional faith is made up of that need to know. We’ve got it written down, and we’ve interpreted it literally and that is how we know. Science is equally an effort to know. History—though it is often told by the winners of the wars—is an attempt to know our past. And often we try to know our future by making goals, creating our vision boards and deciding what it is that the Universe should give us. But there is a mystic way that does not need to know. Where knowledge is ever-evolving experience and where mystery is power. But it frightens us to not know, or to think we don’t know, and that is why so many of us are actually employed by persons who make it our job to know something. So, how do we overcome this fear of not knowing enough to lean into mystery? And why would we want to? Don’t miss this one—there’s hidden power here.

Soul I AM

What if you are not the sum total of all of your behaviors, thoughts, and emotions? What if you are not even the sum total of your experience? What if all of your wounds are but windows to your soul? What if all of your memory is but a shift in your alchemistry? What if what you see is only image? And what if what you don’t see but can sense, feel and intuitively touch is the real essence of who you are? Wouldn’t that be interesting? Wouldn’t it be even enlightening—to come to know yourself as soul, right here, right now on planet earth? Why is it that we think we have to wait until we die to know ourselves as soul? And if it is true that you could come to know yourself as soul—would you be interested? Well this week, we are going to go to the very highest transcendent peak of who you are and peek over the edge. Ready for an adventure? Come join us.

The Existing One

You know for centuries now we’ve thought of ourselves as basically evil at the core, striving ever to be good enough to get the rewards that life gives to those who deserve them. It’s only been within the past 20 or 30 years that we’ve begun to even consider the concept that we are not innately evil—that maybe the concept of original sin doesn’t really fly. But then it also doesn’t fly that we are innately good either—for we are not even sure what the term good means. In fact, as we have grown into the practice of meditation and expanding consciousness, as we get closer and closer to the core of our own experience we discover neither goodness nor badness—rather something far more mysterious. We discover the existing one, the I AM that I AM, the ipseity, the divine self. So, while the law of attraction as we currently understand it has us seeking fulfillment by attracting our dreams, the ipseity continues to call us home. Don’t miss this show.

Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estés and The Joyous Body

We are so happy to have Dr. E back again to the Authentic Living show to talk to us about her third part in the Sounds True online event series, The Dangerous Old Women, entitled The Joyous Body. We do tend to either focus wholly on the body as image, or leave it out entirely from our conscious experience until it acts up. And we rarely if ever think of the body as a repository of joy. It’s a work horse to be whipped into shape, or it’s just a ball and chain we carry around that sometimes gets us into trouble. But what if the body were incrementally tied into the soul? If that were true, wouldn’t we want to do more with it than just keep it enslaved to the ego? If you don’t quite know what to do with this material essence of who you are, this show is for you. Or, if you struggle with body issues of any kind—this show is for you too. Come learn from one of the world’s most profound keepers of wisdom what gifts your body has to give to you.

Transformation Through Forgiveness

What does it mean to forgive? Does it mean that we absolve? That we allow them to “get away with it?” If you are thinking in these terms, then you are not yet ready to forgive. Forgiveness is a process. And it really has nothing to do with the person you are forgiving—unless you are forgiving yourself. In fact, we don’t even start out that process aiming toward forgiveness. Typically, we start it off in pain. Nanice Ellis comes back to the Authentic Living Show again this year, on the day before Thanksgiving, to talk with us about that process and its power to transform. Nanice is the author of seven books, and is a Master NLP Practitioner and Coach, whose wisdom comes from a deep well of experience. If you are worried about your family dinner tomorrow—tune into this show. You’ll be glad you did.

The Gift with Bob & Judy Fisher

What would it be like to know that you were dying? Would life look any different than it does from the perspective of your routine everyday experiences? We strongly suspect that it would but we don’t want to have to be close to dying to find out. Well, this week we are going to get to hear from those who are on the edge of this precipice and learn from their experiences rather than having to go there ourselves. Death is an amazing mystery, as is life and the fine line between the two. Bob and Judy’s book ”Life is a Gift: Inspiration from the Soon Departed” will grant us the gift of insight and wisdom that comes from those who are currently living very close to that line. Don’t miss this beautiful experience.
