Religion & Spirituality Podcas >

The Enlightened Rebel questions conventional thinking that limit our opportunity to enjoy and love all that life has to offer. “Heaven on Earth is not a place to find but a decision to make.” (author unknown) For thousands of years people have talked about Enlightenment, Nirvana, Heaven, Paradise, Perfection, and the like, but today few people seem to even be aware that this is let alone that it is available to them, here, now, today. Many traditions have talked about the truth setting people free and some even acknowledge that when we are free we are free to enjoy and love what life is offering. This podcast is here to encourage people to be honest with themselves so that they can more enjoy and love what life is offering. AND, we will be confronting beliefs and other aspects of society that discourage our honesty and talk about why this is happening.

Definitions and Overcoming Words

3/11/2019
More
In the spiritual process maybe the greatest HACK of all is to recognize how conditioned we all are to react to words and language. Awakening to this is a major part of being Enlightened. Language or words are used to define and make concrete the idea of our being or self. To make words and language so important is to make our “being” or the separate self-important. Overcoming the world is really overcoming our habitual reactions to words, concepts, and ideas that are causing us a negative...

Nowhere do we continue to study or practice the same exercises, so why would we assume that we should do that in our spiritual...

Preparing to Meditate

More
Why do so many meditators fail to find true peace or Enlightenment? I say it is because they did not prepare themselves BEFORE they got to the mat. Both Eastern and Western traditions teach that we have to prepare ourselves for the journey BEFORE we get serious about our efforts. If we want to be doctors or lawyers we first have to learn to read and write. There is a progression to the process of meditation and the journey to Enlightenment/Heaven/Nirvana. Unfortunately, many if not most...

In this first episode I introduce what I want to do with this podcast and the basic philosophy. Admittedly the first episode is rough, not polished, but a start. I talk about what is enlightenment/heaven/nirvana and my unique skills and insights that I bring to those who are interested in pursing a higher quality life experience. As a rebel I will be challenging conventional ways of thinking and beliefs. I will be controversial and at time confrontational as I challenge those conventional...

My first introduction I wrote out a script just to get started and it sounded like it. This one I used an outline and let my passion out. Hopefully it is better.
