The Power of Song

Can culture hold a people together and song save a nation? These short video clips gave me pause, and nudged me to reflect upon the many solemn blessings of our freedom, often taken for granted. Oh, that we hold ourselves to a higher purpose through these trying times. – The song, Finlandia (This Is My Song), was originally written and sung in 1899 as a covert protest against increasing censorship of Finland by the Russian...

In Flanders Fields

In Flanders Fields In Flanders fields the poppies blow Between the crosses, row on row That mark our place; and in the sky The larks, still bravely singing, fly Scarce heard amid the guns below. We are the Dead. Short days ago We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow, Loved and were loved, and now we lie In Flanders fields. Take up our quarrel with the foe: To you from failing hands we throw The torch; be yours to hold it high. If ye...

Providence

 William Hutchinson Murray (1913-1996) “Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back. Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation), there is one elementary truth, the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events...

Taking Back My Power

Victim mentality is an acquired (learned) personality trait in which a person tends to regard him or herself as a victim of the negative actions of others, and to think, speak and act as if that were the case — even in the absence of clear evidence.

What Is Consciousness?

What is consciousness? What is the link between consciousness and our brain? How does consciousness affect our mind, and how does it shape our lives? Is consciousness separate from our brain; like a radio that receives the signal? It’s a well known fact that the average human being uses only about 10% of their brain. What about the other 90%? What about the fact that we can change our minds and that there is such a thing as...

Go Light Your World 2017 Conference – About the MFN

  Talk given at the Go Light Your World Mini Conference in March 2017 on the Men’s Fellowship Network. “If Unity is about anything, it is about the spiritualization of the material world.
