Eckhart Tolle on Not Reacting to Content

Author of the amazing books "The Power of Now" and "A New Earth," Eckhart Tolle, points toward the spaciousness that surrounds every object and every event in our lives. By becoming the observer of our thoughts we feel less impulsive in reacting to content.

Renaissance Radio #16

This week we're joined with Hugh McKenna and Roger Dubay to discuss solutions to the New World Order. What can one person do to effect change? What are some easy and influential methods of activism? We offer many answers to these questions, then continue on discussing Zeitgeist addendum, praise and criticism, Alex Jones' and Eric's take on the Venus Project, the nature of globalization, the Zeitgeist idea of not needing work or money to trade goods and services, government welfare programs, the tantalizing idea of a "spiritually enlightened" world government, Lindsey Williams oil/economic predictions for the next year, the spiritually suppressive nature of the 8 hour work day and 7 day week, playtime for our souls, the elite's complete lack of empathy and more

Michael Sharp's Great Awakening & Book of Light Free Ebooks

Michael Sharp is a wonderful, down-to-Earth, spiritual messenger bringing the "lightning path to enlightenment" through his books and simple teachings. He offers the first two of his seven books free; I have read and enjoyed both of them. His third book will be offered free online after Dec. 25th, 2008 and I am looking forward to that. However with a title like "Ascension and the Divine World Order" I am skeptical as to how much I will agree with the message. Will it actually promote the New World Order like Neale Donald Walsch's Conversations With God book 2? The idea of an enlightened world government unfortunately tantalizes many such spiritualists into thinking that unity, not diversity, is what the world is needing. I discussed this on Renaissance Radio #15 and will be writing more about it later.

Esther Hicks on Law of Attraction

This is Esther Hicks' 5-Part series explaining ever so well, the Law of Attraction. She claims to be channeling a source of disembodied consciousness known as Abraham. I am still personally somewhat skeptical about channeling/channelers, but regardless of exactly where the information comes from, if it resonates with me, makes sense to me, and inspires my thinking/feelings in positive ways, I am delighted to listen.

Waking Life Movie

This is my favorite movie of all-time. Richard Linklater's Waking Life, an amazing, unique, philosophical, dream within a dream within a movie. It is also one of my personal heroes, Alex Jones', cinematic debut: A boy has a dream that he can float, but unless he holds on, he will drift away into the sky. Even when he is grown up, this idea recurs. After a strange accident, he walks through what may be a dream, flowing in and out of scenarios and encountering various characters. People he meets discuss science, philosophy and the life of dreaming and waking, and the protagonist gradually becomes alarmed that he cannot awake from this confusing dream
