Join Aging Younger radio and discover the higher vibration of Sima’s work as a dynamic singer-songwriter, performer, storyteller, speaker, servant of humanity, workshop and retreat leader, meditation and breathwork facilitator, and creative collaborator — often weaving all of these elements into a single performance. He guides audiences into a space for things – epiphanies, light bulbs coming on, shifts – to happen.
Sima’s mission for his music: “I come with a crystal clear divine purpose. With utmost and sacred devotion, I encapsulate – in song – my interpretations of the ancient, timeless wisdom of the ascended masters and of the contemporary teachers I meet in this life. Each and every song I birth begins as my personal conversation with Source, delivered as life lessons of spiritual growth, transformation, and expansion of consciousness. I share this gift to soften the hardest of hearts, widen the narrowest of smiles, loosen the tightest of grips, lighten the heaviest of loads, and thin the thickest of walls of as many souls as I can possibly reach. All for the greater purpose of lifting as much light and consciousness into this world at this time in human evolution when it is so called to be done.”

2nd hr.----'Progress Toward Democracy w/ Brian Stetten and Ruthann RA Amarteifio'
XOn 'Feed Your Head', Sarit Jacobsohn, (FB Sarit Jacobsohn) & (FB Daily Life in Palestine) joins RA for an intimate look at how an ex-IDF soldier became an avid fighter for Palestine----We'll be talking about military occupation, among other things----
Sarit, in her own words------"After growing up in Israel and being told nothing but lies about the Palestinians. Once I woke up I wanted to know more and more why I was lied to by my own education system...by my own government, family and friends. I started researching. First I started talking to many Palestinians online and by phone...besides trying to make sense from so much information that was quite contradictory....The huge wake up call.....was when i got Facebook and tried talking to the Israelis....When I asked them the same questions I asked my Palestinian brothers and sisters I started getting death and rape threats. I was called a traitor and got much hate mail till this day....so I learned being under military occupation is like being born in prison with a paranoid guard that thinks you are his/er worse enemy....How does that happen?

The Gift Poems by Hafiz
Bare Naked Bliss
Sessions with 'She'
This place where you are right now
God circled on a map for you.
Wherever your eyes and arms and heart can move
Against the earth and the sky,
The Beloved has bowed there -
Our Beloved has bowed there knowing
You were coming.
I could tell you a priceless secret about
Your real worth, dear pilgrim,
But any unkindness to yourself,
Any confusion about others,
Will keep one
From accepting the grace, the love,
The sublime freedom
Divine knowledge always offers to you.
Never mind, Hafiz, about
The great requirements this path demands
Of the wayfarers,
For your soul is too full of wine tonight
To withhold the wondrous Truth from this world.
But because I am so clever and generous,
I have already clearly woven a resplendent lock
Of his tresses
As a remarkable truth and gift
In this poem for you.
