Ep. 28: Flexibility Without Compromise | Spiritual Adaptability

In this podcast, Amadon DellErba discusses flexibility without compromise and the art of spiritual adaptability. Regardless of our various religious, political, and/or social backgrounds, we have the opportunity to let consciousness unite us. It is a form of spiritual intelligence that unites individuals and builds bridges. "Without consciousness you separate; with consciousness, you connect." Another huge problem in our society is narcissism. This selfish trait fuels the current division in our country. There is strength to be found in adaptation. Through acceptance and grace you can "know thyself" and come into a deeper understanding of who you are. (GR\DT 28) --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/getrealordietrying/message

Ep. 27: Anarchy vs. Spiritual Hierarchy

In this podcast Amadon DellErba discusses anarchy vs. spiritual hierarchy. In response to the corruption we see in politics and governments today many youth embrace anarchy, but does it work? Recognizing the need for change, in 2011 and 2012 Amadon and the Global Change Media team attended many of the Occupy protests happening around the US with Gabriel of Urantia's Spiritualution movement. Amadon shares the story of a protest in Phoenix that went from an angry run-in with an anarchist cell who thought they were cops to marching with and interviewing Reverend Jesse Jackson. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/getrealordietrying/message

Ep. 26: Patience & Perseverance - Righteousness vs. Self Righteousness (Looking back… 5 Years Later)

In this podcast Amadon DellErba reflects on patience and perseverance by commenting on a video he shot five years ago on self righteousness vs. righteousness. We humans can so easily adopt a holier-than-thou attitude. The “reformed smoker” syndrome is real and we can probably all relate to becoming self-righteous about something. A good reminder that the most effective way to teach and share higher consciousness is by example. When we change for the better, we naturally want others to do the same. And if they don’t, we can get frustrated, impatient and/or prideful. In this episode we are reminded the only way to truly inspire others to change and grow is through patience, kindness and humility. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/getrealordietrying/message

EP. 25: Unity Without Uniformity

In this podcast, Amadon DellErba discusses unity without uniformity, a concept from The URANTIA Book. In our world today that is so divided in so many ways, the attainment of unity can feel like an impossible goal; but it isn’t. What inhibits and what fosters unity among people? An encouraging and inspiring podcast about finding our common spiritual denominator – that we are all created beings who come from the same Creator. This episode concludes with a real-life story of finding unity without uniformity among 300 men from all walks of like sharing a jail cell after being arrested for protesting at Occupy Wall Street. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/getrealordietrying/message

Ep 19: Spiritual Life Lessons from Boxing

In this podcast, Amadon DellErba talks about the spiritual life lessons from boxing, UFC, MMA, and other combat sports. In the ring of life, we can learn a lot from the champions of discipline and self-mastery. Professional athletes display a level of fortitude and commitment to their goals that we can all use in life. We can have the same warrior mentality in life that fighters use in the ring. The attitude includes courage, focus, discipline, commitment, and passion. Amadon talks about some of the greatest figures in boxing, including Mike Tyson, Roy Jones Jr, Muhamed Ali (Cassius Clay), Ernie Terrel, George Foreman, Manny Paquiao, and Floyd Maywether. Being a champion can cause distortions in how we perceive ourselves. Success can bring a big ego, so it’s important to find humility and not get cocky. Using The URANTIA Book, Amadon explores failure and defeat; how to lose gracefully. Even when you get knocked down for the 10 count in life, you need to get back up, get in the fight, and adapt to the present moment. The past is useful only if it is used to prepare for the future. Our growth and goals in life can benefit from the lessons learned in boxing and other combat sports. We can build our spiritual muscles of virtue and character with the same focus and discipline as professional athletes and become Champions of Humility. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/getrealordietrying/message
