    in Spirituality

    Encouraging and Inspirational Words of Wisdom, Spirit and Life To Everyone. The Interpersonal Connection Celebrates Our 7th Year On Blog Talk Radio!  

    I Am An Innovative, Creative Spiritual Being. I am not bound to outdated, outmoded ideas or procedures. If there is a better way of doing something, or handling some situation, I am willing to consider it, to try it. I welcome new ideas, new trends of thought, new ways of looking at things. I become involved in new projects. I pursue new avenues for growth and expansion in my thinking and in my life. I give of myself in new ways through the power of Christ within me. I dedicate my thoughts, words, and my actions to creating happiness and fulfillment of myself and others. I give my attention to opportunities for upgrading every situation and relationship. I become a positive force for good changes in my world. 

    To YOU my loyal family, friends, saints, partners, listeners and supporters. May the Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make His face to shine upon you, and be gracious unto you. The Lord lift up His countenance upon you, and give you peace. May Goodness and Mercy be with you today, every day and in every way. Living a life that matters does not happen by accident. It is not a matter of circumstance but it is a matter of choice.

    The Creative/Artistic Show

    in Spirituality

    What does it mean to be a dreamer and an artist vs. a realist in today's world? We will discuss what it means on today's show and look at it not only from a macro (worldwide/societal view), but also a micro (individual) view. We will also discuss the place that arts and culture has in today's society (if any) and why the role of the Arts has changed so dramatically in the last 3000 years? Why is it that the mind is more important than the creative Soul in our society today rather than 3000 years ago during the time of the Pharaohs and can we ascend in our thought processes about what is more important: the Soul or the Mind? And if it is the Soul, why? And if it is the Mind, why? And finally, we will think about the micro-view and the macro-view as well once more in our daily homework exercises by thinking about how we can change our world using what we have at our disposal, whether it is teaching children in our community centers about the Arts or donating to a favorite Arts cause in our individual neighborhoods or taking it a step further and asking our local government to raise money for Art Awareness programs in our districts and cities...I hope to hear from you on tonight's show...namaste and love from the HEART
