Discover How Your Beliefs and Attitude Repairs Broken DNA Inside Your Cells

This is a story of how scientific advances removed God from the equation governing all physical matter and replaced Him with science’s powerful sense of control over the clockwork mechanics that it had discovered. Science also changed our views about life and God’s role in it when Darwin published his theories of evolution. The church fought an arduous battle to keep God at the centre of things but the scales had tipped and science emerged victoriously. Yet, this is a story much greater...

In this show, we explore what we mean by the reciprocity rule and we shall see how it can easily go awry with tretcherous consequences. Join me as we explore into this fascinating topic.

Learn how Wormholes, a Naked Man and Balloons Define Spiritual Meaning

What have wormholes through space, filled with drifting coloured balloons and a hovering naked man got to do with spirituality and time? Well, they fit together as perfect symbols that explain our layered consciousness, how we attract experiences and how we perpetually live in this present moment of time, which we call ‘now.’


Here's Some Help if you are Cheating or Being Cheated Upon

Contemporary moral values are rapidly replacing old-fashioned ones. This translates into freedom and openness about your sexuality and how you express it. Statistics prove that it has also led to an endemic proliferation of affairs, sexual exploration outside the commitments of a relationship. If you have cheated on your partner, you may carry huge angst and guilt about it; if your partner cheated on you, then it may result in terrible of feelings of abandonment and worthlessness. This...


More Than Nine Things You Can Learn from Being with a Dying Person

For many, being with a dying person is a nightmarish experience. We live in a disposable world and modern western trends encourages us to outsource dying to others, like nurses, hospice staff and doctors. Most of us don’t know what to say. We are afraid to be honest. We think that we need to bring hope and future possibility to the dying person. All while we’re grappling with our own emotions of impending loss and bereavement. But being with a dying person can also be a profound spiritual...


Thomas Budge's Message to the Durban Guild Members

Petra Nicol arranged a meeting of all Guild members in Durban on 24th June 2017 to keep the Guild alive. Life has its quirky ways of unfolding and, amongst other things, Yvonne's cancer and subsequent treatment, took the focus away from our commitments in other areas of our lives. A good thing that's come from this is that there is now proof that the Guild isn't only as big as one person but that it is much, much larger than that. People will come and go but it's really nice to see...


Brutally Honest Truths You Need to Hear If You Want to Get Your Stuff Together

Most of us have piles of personal poo to deal with in life. Life isn’t always easy and we don’t always make the right choices when trying to solve our problems. In fact, we’re often quite blind to the mistakes we make or we find ourselves hellbent on pursuing a course of action that leads nowhere. Your close friends and family may notice how crazy you are but many of them won’t stick their necks out and tell you, with brutal honesty, what they think you’re doing wrong. In my experience,...


Clarifying the Meaning of Mind, Body and Spirit

If the word body refers to your physical being and all of its material acquisitions, how do you define the words mind and spirit? Are there differences between spirit and soul? Most of us have a vague, three-way distinction between mind, body and spirit but it is insightful to know what various philosophies say about them. Having this proper distinction is key to your personal, spiritual growth. Join me as we explore these differences.


I Am Jehovah, Witnessing!

My spiritual journey started in a Jehovah’s Witnesses Kingdom Hall and it came full-circle in one thirty-five years later. This is not a story discouraging you from joining them but it is one of encouragement so that you can embark upon your spiritual journey with eyes wide open and with a good measure of scepticism because there are some whacky beliefs out there and you’ll need to carefully avoid them. This show is about your intrinsic, spiritual magnificence, God (Jehovah if you are...


42 - Essential Tips when Choosing between Religion and Spirituality

This show tackles the thorny issue of whether you should be religious, spiritual or neither and it will help you to understand what it means to pursue your own divinity. To be spiritual (or religious for that matter) often makes one feel bashful and insecure when sharing your journey with others, particularly in a modern world that is driven by consumerism, science and technology. It’s easy to feel awkward and out on the fringe when you indulge in your spiritual awakening. We’ll also...


41 - Practical Steps to Fully Awaken to your Spirituality

Have you ever wondered why you’re not really finding traction with your spirituality? Why it seems so difficult and elusive? You may have read many scriptures and spiritual teachings and, while you have a good mental grasp of these philosophies, you simply don’t seem to walk the spiritual talk. What’s going on and how can you change this? For you to get a better understanding of what it is to be spiritual, it’s important to know a little about the basic functions of your brain to realise...


40 - [Part 2] Biblical Proof that Earth is Flat, Fact or Fiction?

Astronomical evidence debunks the Genesis account that is believed to support a flat-earth model. Here, in Part 2, by investigating this scientific and mathematical evidence, we inadvertently end up challenging scripture and belief. What are the implications of overturning the way God said He created Earth? This episode probes these and other intriguing possibilities.


39 - [Part 1] Biblical Proof that Earth is Flat, Fact or Fiction?

The Genesis account in the Bible offers some compelling evidence to support a flat-earth model. Here, in Part 1 we investigate this evidence that supports Earth being flat, not round, as we were taught. If Earth is indeed flat, you will learn what the Earth’s flat structure is like and how it works. Much of this evidence is very plausible and convincing. However, what is fact and what is fiction and does it really matter whether Earth is flat or spherical?


38 - Let me Remember that there is no Sin

Sin is a myth, an illusory, erroneous judgement that you made about yourself. If there was such a thing as sin, then this would have been the biggest sin you made, to judge yourself as anything less than perfect. The most devastation meme that reached my brain was that I was born in sin. This meme implied that I was substandard, a failed human before I even began and perhaps an even crazier implication, that the intercourse that brought me to my human life, was of itself sinful. However,...


37 - Are Jesus and the Easter Bunny Best Pals?

Rabbits pop up frequently in children's stories and comic strips, and genderless Easter Bunnies have had the pleasant task of bringing us baskets of decorated easter eggs for many centuries. But what are the origins of Easter folklore and how did Jesus get to take centre-stage with the Easter Bunny. This show explores old Biblical history, astronomy and pagan traditions to find an explanation.


36 - Water, Science Magic and Sacred Substance

Water. It’s a scarce commodity in many parts of the world. Growing populations, pollution and drought put pressure on this precious resource and some experts fear that the next World War will be fought over water rights. Water has some quirky scientific properties too, making it a unique and intriguing substance. Join me as I peek into some of water’s scientific craziness and examine its spiritual significance and importance for so many people in different and diverse parts of the world....


35 - [Part 2] Faith Healing, Workings of Holy Spirit or Hypnosis

This is the second and concluding half of this topic. I accepted an invitation by the South African Commission for the Promotion and Protection of the Rights of Cultural, Religious and Linguistic Communities, better known as the CRL Commission, and agreed to participate in their very interesting dialogue on 15th March. They needed to understand: the phenomena of prophecy, healing, miracles, magic and deliverance; how it might affect religious followers; whether it is used as a means of...


34 - [Part 1] Faith Healing, Workings of Holy Spirit or Hypnosis

Invited by the South African Commission for the Promotion and Protection of the Rights of Cultural, Religious and Linguistic Communities, better known as the CRL Commission, I agreed to participate in a dialogue on 15th March 2017, the aim of which was to understand: the phenomena of prophecy, healing, miracles, magic and deliverance; how it might affect religious followers; whether it is used as a means of capturing people; is it the workings of the Holy Spirit or just states of trance;...


33 - Fat Bodies, Maladjusted Minds and the Clues to a Slimmer You

Weight gain is often the physical manifestation of some deeper, unresolved emotional stuff lying in your subconscious mind, and to solve it, you might need to dig deep into your emotional archives and core belief systems. Naturally, you eat to sustain life, giving your body the nutrients it needs to maintain health. However, you also eat, not necessarily to nourish your body, but as a core part of your socialisation with others. Weight management would be far less complicated if these were...
