Communion

In the last episode in the True Tales of Enlightenment podcast series, I talk about how we can develop a direct relationship with God through communion with him. Next year I will be launching a new podcast called “Abide In Me – A.I.M” and hope this will help others to seek and find the spiritual connection and wisdom they are seeking.

Holy Spirit

In this week’s podcast, I talk about the difference between New Age spiritualism and being led by the Holy Spirit. I explain how reading the Bible on three different levels: literal, metaphorical and metaphysical, can lead to a deeper and more fulfilling understanding of the scriptures and whether we need a transcendent moral reality to keep us from doing wrong.

Epiphany

Some call epiphanies, God breaking through. They are the a-ha moments that put us on a different track and bring new information to light. Higher consciousness is accessed through the mind and linked to our intuition, not our emotions. As our feelings are continually triggered, we need to learn how to calm our emotions so the truth can shine through.

Wander into Myths

In this week’s podcast I talk about the personal myths we create to comfort us and why these stories need to be examined when new information becomes available. By looking through the lens of both Christian and Buddhist teachings, I ask if subjective truth and morality is enough to keep us stable during times of need? Or do we need objective truths to stand on in order to make sense of the world and our place in it?

Higher Power

In this week’s podcast I talk about the spiritual discipline of forgiveness and how we can practice this in our lives. Often, we find it difficult to forgive others because they haven’t confessed, apologised and atoned for what they have done. The act of confession relieves us of our burdens and cleanses our soul. It helps us to steer clear of the corruption that leads to much of our misfortune.

Jonah Complex

Abraham Maslow coined the term “Jonah Complex” to describe a fear of our own greatness. It refers to the biblical story of Jonah who runs from the purpose that God has laid out for him and ends up in the belly of a whale contemplating his fate and asking for assistance. How many times have you felt as if you were in the belly of the whale? What can we do to stop ourselves sabotaging our own transcendent purpose?

Sustain-Ability

In this week’s podcast I ask why self-help is the number one selling genre in literature and why we are so clueless about being human. Our ability to self-sustain dwindles with every piece of advice sought from another. So how can we learn to sustain ourselves in times of need?

Conspiracy No More

In this week’s podcast I ask how many of our beliefs are based on conspiracy theories? With the death of, ‘sex trafficker for the elites’, Jeffrey Epstein many people have been drawn into this conspiratorial way of thinking, in one person’s words, “We’ve all become Alex Jones.” It’s time we looked more deeply into how the mainstream narratives we believe to be true were initiated and whether conspiracy theories provide the underpinning of many of our most accepted beliefs.
