Things Worth Considering

Things Worth Considering

This is a show about connections. Connections to your self, your spirit, your feelings and your story. One of the most powerful healing tools we have is our connections. Connect to your intuition and explore your AHA moments. Discover how we get in our own way and how we can overcome obstacles to move on. How we think, what we think, what we believe, and our attitudes define how we experience our life. The fascinating idea that we shape our reality to what we believe it should be, in our minds. How we connect to our families, our aging family members and slowly we become caregivers, not caretakers. Embracing the reality of aging, not into senior citizens but living the archetypal Elder, the Wise One. Living the Spiritual idea of being of service but not being someone’s servant. As we explore the many roads of the human journey with our guests, we will connect to each other by embracing many of the mysteries of life and there we arrive at things worth considering....

After a year that started with the promises that come with a new decade and a new year, we progressed into a global pandemic and as we end the year we are in a lock down situation.

As the child grew older, its caretakers and teachers pointed and said, that is theirs and this is ours. The child only saw a wooden fence that separated theirs and ours, confused because it all looked the same. As time went on, the pointing now included, this is us and that is them.

We live in our heads, distracted by its chattering and divided from our deepest intelligence. The source of our modern distress is that we have put a tiny, fragmented portion of our intelligence in charge of our lives – and that portion of our thinking obsesses all day long over problems it can never solve. We have placed the ability to reason on a pedestal without appreciating its severe limitations. Reason offers to control the w...
