The Path to Enlightenment: DISC Assessment Wrap Up – NAC:46

After doing 4 individual episodes on the DISC Personality Assessment methodology, what does a Conscientious (C) podcast host do ... How about 1 more episode just for the fun of it?!?! As the title suggests, in this episode we wrap up the discussion about the different paths to enlightenment for different personality types by diving into some tips and tricks, if you will. Namely, most of us are a mix of personality types and depending on how that mix plays out in your life, you will likely deal with things quite differently than other people who may have your same primary personality flavor. In this episode we cover: * Insights on how your secondary personality type will influence your primary* The definition of 'work' for different personalities* Tips on how to build around your strengths and weaknesses * How understanding the quadrants of the DISC diagram (below) can help you easily see insights into your actions and the actions of others Recommended Resources Recommended DISC Tests Your Life's Path - DiSC Classic 2.0 Test - $64.50 DiSC Personality Testing - Full DiSC Assessment - $29

The Path to Enlightenment: The Informed Path for Conscientious Personalities – NAC:45

If you got excited when you first found out that we were going to be doing a 12 episode series on The Path to Enlightenment, there's a really good chance that was the 'C' part of you. If you've been purchasing every one of the different books that have been recommended throughout this series, I want to say, welcome to the 'C' side of life my friend, I'm glad there's another well informed New Age Christian out there in the world... Some might say... too informed... but still, I'm glad to have the company (I am a 'C' myself). As a continuation of our 4 episodes focusing on the 4 personality types within the DISC personality profile system, this episode focuses on the 'C' of the DISC acronym, the Conscientious individuals amongst us. Conscientious personality types are data hounds that are so glad the internet was invented. Got a random question you don't know the answer to, Google it... Oh wait... your 'C' friend already did. Why? Because the most important thing in the world is having the right answers to every question, that's why. In this episode we cover: * What a Conscientious (C) is* The pros and cons of being a 'C'* The best tools (according to Austin Fletcher) for 'C's to use in their journey to find enlightenment* The role of The Creative Process in the Individual as a tool for freedom * What traditional 'enlightenment' concepts probably won't work for a 'C' Recommended Resources Recommended DISC Tests Your Life's Path - DiSC Classic 2.0 Test - $64.50 DiSC Personality Testing - Full DiSC Assessment - $29

The Path to Enlightenment: The Peaceful Path for Steadfast Personalities – NAC:44

You know those people in your life who you just love hanging around because they are so easy going and a delightful to talk to, the people in your network of friends that almost nobody has anything bad to say about... Yeah... They are almost definately an 'S'. As a continuation of our 4 episodes focusing on the 4 personality types within the DISC personality profile system, this episode focuses on the 'S' of the DISC acronym, the Steadfast(s). Steadfast personalities are the salt of the earth, loyal friends who are always there for you. If you have an emergency at 3AM in the morning, they are the friends that you call first. They are the 'glue' that holds our society together, and they would rather talk about your life than theirs... but we're gonna talk about them anyway. In this episode we cover: * What a Steadfast (S) is* The pros and cons of being an 'S'* The best tools (according to Austin Fletcher) for 'S's to use in their journey to find enlightenment* The role of The Power of Now as a tool for freedom * What traditional 'enlightenment' concepts probably won't work for an 'S' Recommended Resources Recommended DISC Tests Your Life's Path - DiSC Classic 2.0 Test - $64.50 DiSC Personality Testing - Full DiSC Assessment - $29

The Path to Enlightenment: The Fun Path for Influencer Personalities – NAC:43

If the idea of pursuing enlightenment has ever sounded boaring to you, you're probably an Influencer personality (an 'I') and this podcast episode is for YOU. As a continuation of our 4 episodes focusing on the 4 personality types within the DISC personality profile system, this episode focuses on the 'I' of the DISC acronym, the Influencers. Influencers are largely driven by fun and the desire to change their environment through having an impact on others around them. Less focused on tasks, Influencers want... you guessed it... INFLUENCE. In this episode we cover: * What an Influencer (I) is* The pros and cons of being an 'I'* The best tools (according to Austin Fletcher) for 'I's to use in their journey to find enlightenment* The role of The 4 Agreements as a tool for freedom * What traditional 'enlightenment' concepts probably won't work for an 'I' Recommended Resources Recommended DISC Tests Your Life's Path - DiSC Classic 2.0 Test - $64.50 DiSC Personality Testing - Full DiSC A...

The Path to Enlightenment: The Powerful Path for Dominant Personalities – NAC:42

In the first episode of this series we discussed what enlightenment is and why there are multiple paths that we can take to get there. In this episode, we continue the discussion by diving deeper into the enlightenment journey through the lens of the DISC Personality Profile. In the DISC Personality Profile, the "D" stands for 'Dominant'. Dominant personalities, like all personalities, have specific traits that make them tick. They like to move fast, take charge, know their boundaries, and change their environment. There is hardly a major world leader in history that didn't have a significant amount of 'D' in their makeup. In this episode we cover: * What a Dominant (D) is* The pros and cons of being a 'D'* The best tools (according to Austin Fletcher) for D's to use in their journey to find enlightenment* The role of Radical Honesty as a tool for freedom * What traditional 'enlightenment' concepts probably won't work for a 'D' Recommended Resources: Recommended DISC Tests Your Life...

The Path to Enlightenment: What Is Enlightenment? – NAC:41

This is the first episode of a new series entitle "The Path to Enlightenment". In the episode I introduce the series as a whole along with explaining some of the major concepts one will need to have in place in order to FULLY understand the episodes that are to follow. The main question addressed in this episode as it pertains to introducing the overall series is defining what 'enlightenment' even is. Throughout history there have been two primary answers to this question: * Enlightenment is manifesting heaven on earth. Becoming at peace with all that is, and living in such a way as to transcend all emotional pain and turmoil, no matter the circumstance. * Enlightenment is emptying yourself of all limitation and transcending your very life itself. Being able to leave the body and enter into unity consciousness with God. Personally... and for the sake of this series... I define enlightenment as being BOTH of these states combined. After all, isn't that exactly what Jesus showed us? I...

The New Age Christian community is growing, and as we grow, I want to continue introducing you to more and more of your fellow 'New Age Christians'.

BONUS: Religious Fear vs Spiritual Freedom (The Reckless Pursuit)

NAC's goal is to generate an identity (of sorts) the people can rally around. In creating this identity, one of the things that we value is the fact that no one person or group of people should be the ones to define it. That's why we will be adding BONUS episodes into our podcast lineup as we develop more relationships with other groups that are on the same journey. We're not sure where this will take things, but we know you'll enjoy hearing from other people who see things in a complimentary way to you. This episode was an interview that Austin Fletcher did with Cody an Elaine of The Reckless Pursuit. They are an awesome couple and we're really excited to share their stuff with the NAC community. Check out their site at https://therecklesspursuit.com and their Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/therecklesspursuitpodcast/. This episode can be found on their site at https://therecklesspursuit.com/new-age-christianity-and-fear-vs-freedom-with-austin-fletcher/ Their podcast can be found on all the major podcast outlets as well, so subscribe to their channel and lets build this community! Have you ever felt like what you were taught about faith was based more on a list of what not to do more than a freedom you feel Christ offers? Or have you ever wondered why we preach sermons of fear more than sermons about overcoming? If so, you are not alone! This week, we are talking with Austin Fletcher, host of New Age Christianity. We are discussing the freedom of true spirituality versus the controlling fear religion can lead to. Whether you realize it or not, God has set us free from sin nature and law. Austin shares with us his life mantra of trying to live by the verse which states “Everything is permissible”. Most of the time, our first reaction would be to quickly try to finish the second half of the verse but let it sink in: Everything is in fact permissible. Sure, there are things we should not dabble in. This is not an excuse to justify sin. But when you are living according to the Spirit our desire falls in line with God’s purpose. It’s been over a year since we have done an episode on this very topic and this time, we brought the guy who created the podcast about it! We have entered into a new age of Christianity so let’s explore what God is offering up. Austin’s words are strong and can challenge us but let them sink in. Just because it’s different from what you have always heard doesn’t make it wrong. Transcription by Otter.AI Austin Fletcher 5:55awesome. How are you guys doing? Cody Johnston 5:56Doing well, doing well. So we got to know Austin, because it just so happens. We were searching the term New Age Christianity. And we share a spot so we are neighbors in iTunes. Yeah. And we started listening to the show really enjoyed everything you had to say.

Interview with a New Age Christian: Reckless Pursuit (Cody & Elaine Johnston) – NAC:39

In this episode, I interview Cody and Elaine Johnston, hosts of The Reckless Pursuit Podcast. Cody and Elaine reached out to me a few weeks ago after they found the NAC Podcast on iTunes, and after a few messages and a Zoom chat, we realized we had a TON in common. While our visions are slightly different, the amount of overlap is perfect for cross-pollinating our communities and projects. If you get a chance, check out their website at https://therecklesspursuit.com/ or their Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/therecklesspursuitpodcast/. I know you'll enjoy getting to know these two and I highly recommend joining their Nomads Community if you're looking for more great relationships and content from fellow spiritual journey junkies like yourself.
