    The Allegory of The Cave: Talking Shadows

    in Entertainment

    The show is meant to be light and fun while I discuss pretty much everything! The show is about having light conversation about the many interesting events and facts of politics, entertainment, technology, money, history and present day issues that this world has to offer. Past, Present and Future will be discussed from a global, country and state perspective! All that is common, all that is right and all that is wrong will be highlighted. 

    The host John Jamel is not politically correct by any means, but his point of view will either shock you, tickle you or infuriate you.

    My Mother is a Free Woman continued: Paul's allegory

    in Religion

    We are doing a short series about your 'heavenly mother'.  This term Paul received in the revelation given to him by Christ after his conversion, as the Holy Spirit breathed on the Old Testament prophecies of the coming Messiah and His Kingdom.

    Christians are aware that they have a , 'Heavenly Father", but most don't realize that they also have a heavenly mother.

    In this broadcast, we are going to look at the 'two's' in Paul's allegory found in Galatians 4.

    I would encourage you to listen to all the broadcasts in this series.  The 'unseen' realities will be visible to the eyes of your heart.

    The Allegory of the Cave by Plato

    in Self Help

    Have you EVER read; "The Allegory of the Cave"?  This brief story has a powerful meaning. Today's discussion about a famous mentor in history, will be about Plato. Who was he and what did he teach.  More importantly, how his wisdom (that is older than 2,000 years), still has a vital lesson for us in this day and age.
    One of the most profound stories that Plato wrote was called, "The Allegory of the Cave".  An abbreviated form of this story is as follows:
    "Suppose there is a cave, and inside the cave there are some men chained up to a wall, so that they can only see the back wall of the cave and nothing else. These men can't see anything outside of the cave, or even see each other clearly, but they can see shadows of what is going on outside the cave. Wouldn't these prisoners come to think that the shadows were real, and that was what things really looked like?
    Suppose now that one of the men escaped, and got out of the cave, and saw what real people looked like, and real trees and grass. If he went back to the cave and told the other men what he had seen, would they believe him, or would they think he was crazy?"
    Plato says that we are like those men sitting in the cave; "We think we understand the real world, but because we are trapped in our bodies we can see only the shadows on the wall".
    Linda Forsythe and Leyla Hur will be having a lively discussion about this story and how much the spirit of the story is alive in us today. How much do you believe is reality because of what you've perceived or been taught? 
    Many answers to questions may be answered within yourself after today's show.

    #139 "Newtown's Trees" Author Frank Miller

    in Education

    Newtown's Trees is an allegory about the 2012 tragedy in Newtown, Connecticut, using the town's beloved trees cut down by the protagonist as the central theme.  It is a book that can be appreciated on several levels; by adults who know the horrific details of the events that took place on a cold December morning, as well as by children who read the book or have it read to them as a sad story with an uplifting ending that outlines the strength of the human spirit.

    The tale has an even wider application to other news stories that portray bad things happening to good people. Newtown's Trees is a book that warms the heart and leaves the reader feeling that despite these often senseless tragedies, there's a lot of good in this world.

    Frank L. Miller is a writer and trained school psychologist. He earned an educational specialist degree in school psychology, and practiced for thirty-eight years before retiring in 2012. Frank adopted his son and daughter after marrying their mother, an elementary guidance counselor, and then adopted his daughter’s first-born child when she was unable to raise the child. The author lives on the Eastern Shore of Maryland with his wife of thirty-one years and the granddaughter they have thoroughly enjoyed raising who is now fourteen. Newtown’s Trees is Frank’s second publication, having written a book chronicling the battle he fought with his school district over his eldest daughter’s drug abuse and expulsion from school.


    We will also feature the 2015 National Distinguished Principal for Texas, Diane Gough of Hewitt Elementary School in Hewitt, Texas. We will hear about her great Watch D.O.G.S. program.

    Within masonry, is perfection; beauty; a universe in utterly remarkable balance.  Poor is man that blames himself for not seeing what is there.  He has not found the perspective that helps him understand that he is surrounded by beauty. 

    The Chinese approach to beauty, does not immediately disclose all. It leaves something to the imagination, to allow a man to loose himself in his contemplation, creating the road of a spiritual experience. Reflections, memory, deeply surreal, contradictory, magical.

    By turning to the East, we move from that which is manicured and manufactured and that which is natural.  Can our western eye see in this cultural confusion, a message?  In this sense, do symbols, allegory, arcane, perhaps the metaphor in this sense  inspire us in mysterious, essential masonic experience?

    Notice in the ordinary, what lessons are revealed in the garden of them mind? The spiritual purity of freemasonry is a path to understanding. What holds the secret of freemasonry may not be within the walls of the lodge but in nature, the key that unlocks secrets left.  Finding that much sought after key is afterall, a personnal journey that thousands have discovered.  The answers do not come to him.  He leaves behind the predictability of the lodge to discover, not as the first but as the next. 

    It is elemental, vast and very, very old.

    Let go of turmoil and it will let go of you. Listen for the silence in a crowd. Become invisible to conflict and it will pass through you. Then the humble apprentice finds the lesson he has laboured to find. Do not search for it. Be it. Be a mason in mind, body and spirit and notice the life force flows unrestricted.
