The Wisdom Process

We tend to think of wisdom in terms that are rather other-worldly. We tend to think that those who are wise are either those who have been taught by a guru or they are the guru. But really, even the guru will tell us that wisdom isn’t taught. It’s received. And it isn’t received from any external teaching. It’s received from some deep resonance within us. So what is the process of attaining wisdom? People speak frequently about “lessons” we are getting in life, through the school of hard knocks and other like schools. But all too often the lessons we learn have to do with how to survive better, how to become better people or how to win friends and influence people. Sometimes the lessons have to do with enjoying life more. But is that wisdom? What is wisdom then? Is it a mood of bliss? A higher self? And once we know what it is, will we still want it? If so, how will we get it? These questions and more will be answered on this week’s show. Don’t miss it!

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.

Reality

What is reality? Many teach that the goings-on of this world are but an illusion and anyone who pays much attention to it is going to end up losing his or her peace. Others teach that Satan is the ruler of this world and we should have a higher standard than that of the so-called “world” for ourselves. But what is it really to live in this world? How is it that we came to split ourselves off from it as if it had only an evil or negative pull against our efforts to attain heaven or a higher self? What is real? And what is illusion? There are so many of us who allow others to answer those questions for us, instead of seeking our own answers—and that’s both in the New Age/New Thought world and that of the fundamentalist, as well as those from Eastern religions. We are all too willing to follow the leader . Well this show is meant to facilitate the exploration of life from your own personal perspective, so that you might answer your own questions.

The Mystic Journey

What does it mean to live the mystic’s life? Many say that the mystic is always kind, loving, and positive, even self-sacrificing. But these things do not represent the mystic’s journey. The mystic’s journey is an inward journey, one that might surprise us with its fierce and persistent longing to serve every single aspect of self as if it were a starving child. We tend to believe that those who are on the mystic’s journey are going to be saints in every sense of that word. But we might be surprised to learn who in our world is actually on the mystic’s journey, for it is done so silently that it might not even be noticeable. In fact, it turns out that the mystic’s journey doesn’t really have anything whatsoever to do with terms we know as “good” and “bad,” “morality” and “ethics.” It is unsettling in its depth, and utter peace in its essence. Want to learn about the mystic’s journey. Don’t miss this show.

What is Destiny

The word destiny gets thrown about quite a bit both in and out of the New Age/New Thought worlds. When we meet that special soulmate we tend to think it was fated. And we tend to think that destiny is a done deal that it is what it is and there’s not much we can do to stop it from happening. And yet in our typically duplicitous way of thinking we also believe that if we work hard we can create the life we want. So, which is true? And what has astrology got to do with destiny? Is an astrological chart a map of one’s fate? Or is it just bunk? We go to psychics and we want them to tell us will we meet our soulmate, will we get that job, will we have that money. But are they telling us our destiny? Or is it just bunk? What is true and what is false about destiny? What is true and what is false about astrology and what it has to say about destiny? Are you trying to determine your destiny? You don’t want to miss this show.

Why Isn’t The Law of Attraction Working?

Is it bunk? Are we doing it wrong? Is there something wrong with us that we can’t make it work? What’s the problem? The simple answer is that life is just an illusion anyway, so what difference does it make. But life is not an illusion. Duality is an illusion. And the problem with the law of attraction may have something to do with the fact that we’ve come at our understanding of it from a dualistic perspective. This show we are going to answer that question once and for all. So, if you are struggling with the law of attraction, or trying to create something in your life using vision boards, affirmations and positive thinking—this show is for you.

Relationship AS Soul

Robert Forman comes back to be with us today to talk about his ideas about Jazz in the Soul in which relationship becomes real and soulful. Robert is the author of “Enlightenment Ain’t What It’s Cracked Up to Be: A Journey of Discovery, Snow and Jazz in the Soul” carries a profound awareness of what it is like to live life in touch with soul. When it comes to relationship, we tend to think that the other party is our soul. They represent our happiness, our security, our hope and often we think that we cannot live without some of our relationships. Well perhaps we never live without them, but that’s not the question. The question is how much of our relationship is soul and how much operates as if it is separate from the soul? If you want to learn how to make yours into a soulful relationship, don’t miss this show.
