SORT BY Relevancy
Confucius (c. 551--479 B.C.). Chines philosopher, who was a statesman and adviser to various feudal lords.When none would implement his philosophy of perfecting one's own moral character, he became a teacher. He found the key to to successfully send message by having adequate knowledge of words you speak.
As the Melchizedek missionaries passed through Asia, they spread the doctrine of the Most High God and salvation through faith. The earliest form of Taoism arose in China as a direct consequence of this teaching. In the sixth century before Christ, a unique time of spiritual progress, two outstanding teachers of religious truth, Lao-tse and Confucius, restated and revitalized the Melchizedek gospel.

"Signs and symbols control the world, not phases and laws."
Confucius (551-479 BC)
Most likely, you've heard of subliminal messages. It's also likely you've heard subliminal messages aren't effective. I'm sure you've heard there's no such thing as Satan, too. I hope you didn't fall for either one! If you check modern dictionaries, you'll find definitions like the following because subliminals are legitimate.
Subliminal: "existing or operating below the threshold of consciousness; being or employing stimuli insufficiently intense to produce a discrete sensation but often being or designed to be intense enough to influence the mental processes or the behavior of the individual: a subliminal stimulus; subliminal advertising." ( Dictionary.com Unabridged - Based on the Random House Dictionary)
When words and images are presented below the threshold of our consciousness there is, by definition, no awareness of the stimulus and thus no opportunity to consciously control our response. Reason is removed from the equation. This situation is taken advantage of in many ways.

A famous painting exists of 3 Asian men, way back in time, who are gathered around a big vat of liquid. Vinegar, to be exact! They are dipping their fingers in the vat and tasting it. One man reacts with a sour expression; the second man has a bitter look on his face; and the third has a smile on his lips. These three men are Buddha, Lao Tzu, and Confucius, and their reactions to the taste of the vinegar represent their philosophies. Can you guess which man is associated with which expression? This famous painting was discussed in The Tao of Pooh, so you may already know the answer. But tune in anyway, because we'll be talking about the differences between these 3 key philosophies.

THIS WEEK: RESPECT Your TBI
It was Confucius who said, “Respect yourself and others will respect you.” A common thread in all disability communities is the desire to be respected as individuals who want to be totally integrated into all aspects of society. Respect by definition is "a feeling of deep admiration for someone or something elicited by their abilities, qualities, or achievements." We all have associated with people and things we have such high regard for in our lives…but what about respect for our TBIs? How challenging is it for you to respect yourself? Your own TBI? Do you feel respected by others? If not, how can you change that? Join Kevin tonight when he shares his own insights about respect and provides some tips on how to revere yourself which will help you fulfill your potential to have a FUNctional life as a TBI Thriver.
Tune in this week to add another perspective to your daily repertoire. If there is something in particular you would like to hear Kevin discuss, join us on Fridays and share in the chat room with the "Marvelous Maggie" (Kevin's 24/7 Partner and Professional Care Assistant)

April 24, 2014 - LIVING A RICHER LIFE: with Heather Shreve, Certified Wellcoach (ACSM), Behavior Specialist and Author of “Caught On the Equator, Finding the Fire Within.”
THIS WEEK'S MESSAGE: “The will to win, the desire to succeed, the urge to reach your full potential... these are the keys that will unlock the door to personal excellence.” Those are the words spoken by Confucius back in 500 BC. Today, in times of strife or uncertainty, it is easy to beat yourself up, think you’re not good enough and blame others or circumstances for falling short in some aspect of your life. It is even easier to forget that despite all of our differences we are born with one very important and unique thing in common…human potential for greatness. What seems difficult, at times, is remembering this potential lies within us all. The question in many cases is “How can I find the fire that I know is within me?”
Heather Shreve, certified Wellcoach (ACSM), behavior specialist and author, is authentically passionate about facilitating peoples’ journey to their highest potential, and advocates the idea that “hitting bottom can be a ticket to the top.” Heather demonstrates and takes her message to corporations and individuals alike; through her wellness program and her personal transformation story; Caught On the Equator, Finding the Fire Within. Beginning with her own adversity story of being jailed in Africa in 1983, Heather takes her audiences from “inspiration to transformation.”
TONIGHT we talk all about betrayal. We see it on every reality show, on every primetime show from Scandal, The Voice, & Survivor. So We have familiy betraying family and friends betraying friends. We open up the lines for everyone to share their stories.
Betrayal is defined as being unfaithful, disloyal, or decieving someone that has put their trust in you.
“It is easier to forgive an enemy than to forgive a friend.”
? William Blake
“Et tu, Brute?”
? William Shakespeare, Julius Caesar
“It is more shameful to distrust our friends than to be deceived by them.”
Our Reasons to Believe quote for today is from C.S. Lewis. He said, "If you had gone to Buddha and asked him: 'Are you the son of Brahma?' he would have said, 'My son, you are still in the vale of illusion.' If you had gone to Socrates and asked, 'Are you Zeus?' he would have laughed at you. If you had gone to Mohammed and asked, 'Are you Allah?' he would first have rent his clothes and then cut your head off. If you had asked Confucius, 'Are you Heaven?' I think he would have probably replied, 'Remarks which are not in accordance with nature are in bad taste.' The idea of a great moral teacher saying what Christ said is out of the question. In my opinion, the only person who can say that sort of thing is either God or a complete lunatic..."
Our Reasons to Believe Scripture passage for today is 1 Thessalonians 5:20-22. It reads, "Despise not prophesyings. Prove all things; hold fast that which is good. Abstain from all appearance of evil."
Our Reason to Believe powerpoint today is titled "Faith and Reason" (part 4) from "The Handbook of Christian Apologetics" by Peter Kreeft and Ronald K. Tacelli:
Emotional faith is feeling assurance or trust or confidence in a person. This includes hope (which is much stronger than just a wish) and peace (which is much stronger than mere calm).

GLMX #90: You Can Find the Bodies of Mohammed, Buddha, and Confucius, But You Cannot Find the Body o
One of my favorite verses in the Bible is Matthew 28:6, "He [Jesus] is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay."
One of the most famous Buddhist temples in the world is the Shwe Dagon. It stands on a hill over 200 feet high and rises some 200 feet higher. It is covered with a pure gold leaf. Around its base are hundreds of small pagodas, in each of which is some relic of a teacher of Buddhism. Embedded in the solid masonry of the base is a gold box which contains some finger-bones, teeth, and other parts of Buddha, who lived many centuries ago.
There is another burial place in Arabia, the green mosque of Medina, under which lies the body of Mohammed. Millions of people today are his earnest followers. But, despite his greatness, he, too, is dead, and like Buddha, he lies buried here on earth.
The burial place of Confucius is a grass covered mound in the province of Shantung, China. Confucius was also a great man and teacher, and he influenced the lives of millions of human beings. Nevertheless, he is dead and his body, too, is here on earth.
There is another tomb that was cut into a rock. A tomb which had been closed with a great stone. Today, the stone is "rolled away", and the Man whose body had been laid within by sorrowing friends is gone.
The world shattering truth being that on the third day, "He [Jesus] ROSE from the dead!"
Yes, indeed, the tomb of Christ is an empty tomb. That's the vital difference between Jesus of Nazareth and any and all other great religious leaders who ever walked the earth.
