    The Sound of Success Part 2

    in Motivation

    "Eloquence resides as much in the tone of voice, in the eyes, and in the expression of the face, as in the choice of words." ~ Francois La Rouchefoucauld


    Tone of voice is not WHAT you say, but HOW you say it. This encompasses not only the words you choose, but their order, rhythm and pace. Words are often very imprecise vehicles of communication, requiring us to be as highly reliant on how a person sounds and expresses themselves when communicating. Indeed, your voice and accompanying expressions are a very powerful tool for communicating when used properly and a friendly tone of voice can make your seem more approachable. Maya Angelou once said, "People don’t always remember what you say or even what you do, but they always remember how you made them feel.” Tone is influenced by emotion and is reflected through volume, pitch and rate. 

    In this episode we discuss how you can use your tone of voice to become a better speaker.

    My Journey to Now, Plus Tools for the Seeker with James Westly


    This is the story of an extraordinary journey that begins for author James Westly back in 1977. He was at the time happily married and involved in a successful corporate business career in Philadelphia. But something was missing. He didn't know quite what it was that he was searching for, but one day a small ad in the personals section of the newspaper caught his attention and started him on a path that totally changed his life. In the months that follow he set out on a journey of self-discovery that would within a year's time lead him to virtually withdraw from the world-to separate himself from his job, his house, his wife, his friends, and his material possessions.


    In the process he joined a retreat in Northern California and made a new life for himself there, where he began a profound intellectual, emotional, and physical transformation that opened up an entirely different way of living for him. "His account of his journey into this new world reads like a novel. He tells his story with a mixture of eloquence and insight that is both breathtaking and inspirational. The journey ends happily, but it is not without its moments of conflict, crisis, and peril"-Tom Hyman, author of Jupiter's Daughter


    James Westly, MC, LPC, is a psychotherapist, consultant, speaker, and writer whose passion is the search for, and the practice and dissemination of, techniques that develop the Human Spirit.

    Author Michaela Carter Discusses Further Out Than You Thought

    in Books

    Combining the eloquence and raw sensuality of Jeanette Winterson with the romantic, renegade spirit of Patti Smith, Further Out Than You Thought is a taut and erotically charged literary debut, set against the chaos of the 1992 L.A. riots, about three people searching for identity and meaning from award-winning poet and indie bookshop co-founder Michaela Carter.


    In the Neverland that is Los Angeles, where make-believe seems real, three dreamers find themselves on the verge of transformation. Twenty-five-year-old poet Gwendolyn Griffin works as a stripper to put herself through graduate school. Her perpetually stoned boyfriend Leo dresses in period costume to hawk his music downtown, and seems to be losing his already tenuous grip on reality. And their flamboyant best friend and neighbor, nightclub crooner Count Valiant, is slowly withering away.


    When the city explodes in violence after the Rodney King verdict, the chaos becomes a catalyst for change. Valiant is invigorated, Leo plans a new stunt—walking into east L.A., naked, holding a white flag—and Gwen, discovering she is pregnant, is confronted by troubling questions. Can Leo become a good, dependable father? Can she leave the club life behind, or will the city’s spell prove too seductive?


    Combining poetry and sensuality with an edgy urban sensibility, Further Out Than You Thought is a celebration of life and a haunting story of love, friendship, and one woman’s quest for redemption.

    Translate, Transform and Transcend: The Magic of Michael Jackson

    in Culture

    Transcendentalism represented a complex answer to the democratization of American life, the growth of science and technology, and a new kind of industrialism--to the whole question, in short, of the redefinition of the relationship between man and nature and other men that was being demanded by the course of history.

    Alluding to the Platonic triad, Emerson spoke of the oversoul , eternal source of beauty, truth, and good, and exhorted men to search for that spirit or fundamental principle that rules nature and of which men partake. The quest for this spiritual state that "transcends" the physical and empirical world is only possible through intuition and the subordination of men to the eloquence of nature, and not through established religious doctrines or through reason or sensory experience alone . 


    According to Emerson, even though all human beings are called to a profound communion with nature in their search for the oversoul, the artists are the ones to fulfill this search by giving new forms to beauty in nature, beauty being "the herald" of the triad . Thus, art is the "result or expression of nature, in miniature, a nature passed through the alembic of man" . Then, the more artists submit and lend themselves to be interpreters of this superior principle manifest in nature, the closer they are to truth, good, and beauty combined in the work of art. In a search which is strictly personal, artists pursue independence, faith in themselves, and self reliance, and endeavor to achieve the best version of the self in communion with the superior and transcendental Being, the divinity that lies in every natural fact and in every individual, believing in the need of establishing an intimate relationship between the self and the universe in terms of a search both for self-knowledge and knowledge of the world.

    Let me love them through you.

    in Spirituality

    Though we speak with many tongues, we might have many gifts, speak with eloquence, have the gift of prphecy, but have not love we are as nothing.
     


    Corinthians 13:1 Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.


    If you love mekeep my commandments, John 14:15
    God is Love


    John 7:38 He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.

    Interview with Robyn Ottolini

    in Music

    Robyn Ottolini is a singer-songwriter who has been immersed in the magic of music since the age of 3. In her home town of Uxbridge, Ontario, she is known for singing throughout the halls of her high school. "Without looking, teachers know it’s me when I get into class," Robyn says with a smile. She remembers coming up with melodic ideas as early as ten years old and wanting to write songs. Piano lessons weren’t enough to satisfy Robyn’s musical interests, playing flute in the school band helped but, it was the introduction of the guitar where Robyn found her writing partner. Her earliest songs were written with her grandfather’s Harmony guitar from the 1950s.


    "I write songs about what I’m feeling and what’s happening in my life," she explains.


    Robyn has a fascination with the ocean. She believes ‘what you see on the surface is different than what is underneath.’ Her lyrics reflect her unique view of the world around her. She writes songs with a seasoned eloquence beyond her young age.


    When the opportunity to sing on demos for a local recording studio presented itself, Robyn jumped right in. Her original songs caught the producer’s attention. "It was Robyn’s unique vocal tone and the strength of her songwriting that impressed us" says her producers.


    Robyn's latest single - written by her & MIke Leaver - is the title track from her album Fairytales and Open Doors.
