Those are words taken from a poem by Rainer Maria Rilke, and are the title of Joyce Rupp’s latest book, a book that draws on a rich variety of faith traditions to provide meditations on God’s names for every day of the year. One of the hardest things for us to wrap our minds around seems to be this idea of a God of multiple names—a God who isn’t God, but an unnamable Beingness. It is always so interesting to think that we’ve got God in a box when we encapsulate its character in a connotation that seems to fit us more than anything else. But here Rupp has given us a language for the name itself—if only in tiny fragments—that put us in touch with the deeper aspects of ourselves and that ultimate Beingness. With the open heart of a mystic we come to this show wanting more than that empty box someone else gave us many years ago. Don’t miss this opportunity for deeper enlightenment.
Though it has been maligned over centuries of thought as either “flesh,” the source of all evil, idiot, unnecessary or just objective biology—the body is actually the physical organ of the soul. There is no division between matter and soul—though we have lived entire lifetimes, have planned our politics, our religions and our families around the notion that there is. The body is a wonderful instrument of synchronicity, which constantly informs us of the soul’s intentions—IF we are listening. And even when we don’t listen, the soul still has the capacity to speak through the body—through illness. We are being given constant guidance and love through the interwoven, interactive and holistic messaging system of the body/soul.

The word “power” is fraught with all kind of connotation, including “control,” “manipulation,” “abuse,” “bullying” and yes, even the word “help.” But these are all externalized views of that word. From an internal perspective power can be seen as the attainment of an authentic stand with and for your Self. Fear, on the other hand, is the foundation from which most of us live our daily lives—whether we admit it or not. Not so long ago many of us were touting the word “fearless,” and claiming our rights to climb the tallest mountain and kayak the fiercest river. But fearlessness is not the same as power, when power is attained internally. In fact, from the internal perspective fear is a springboard for power. This week we are going to be talking all about power, and not just personal power, but something that could more accurately be described as transpersonal power. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn about your own power.

Like any new thought, humanity has had to experiment with the law of attraction for a while to see if it is really effective. And we have mixed reviews on that front. Some are saying that the law of attraction has brought them excellent results. But others are saying that they struggle and struggle to think so-called “positive” thoughts and eliminate all “negative” energy, but without much change. While this show will not debunk the law of attraction, we might need to think about it from a different angle in order to get consistent results. The show is based on the book, coming out in 2011, currently titled “The Law of Attraction: The Unadulterated Truth About Why it isn’t Working and How it Can” by the show’s host, Andrea Mathews. Don’t miss this opportunity to rethink our current understanding of this law and to find out how a new view of it can help you turn possibility into probability.
