It turns out when you strip away the religious and institutional covers from the ancient masters like Lao Tzu, Buddha and Jesus, you can see that they figured out how to feel happy, healthy and fulfilled and told us how to do it. The practices they espoused like meditation and prayer are only now being demonstrated by neurologists and neuropsychologists to transform mood and outlook. But just learning to meditate, practicing mindfulness, or learning how to sense and move your energy isn't en ...
 
Are we really going to let thousands of years of Western culture and civilization go up in smoke? The treasures of the past are being replaced by a plastic, consumer-driven world. A lot of us are tired of modern life—the pace, the expectations on all of us, the insane politics, the confusing religious landscape, the degrading entertainment industry, and the overwhelming mess of information available every second at our fingertips. And many of us are asking, Where did we go wrong? Can we ever ...
 
The Book of Revelation, often known simply as Revelation or the Apocalypse, is the final book of the New Testament and occupies a central place in Christian eschatology. Written in Koine Greek, its title is derived from the first word of the text, apokalypsis, meaning "unveiling" or "revelation." The author of the work identifies himself in the text as "John" and says that he was on Patmos, an island in the Aegean, when he was instructed by a heavenly figure to write down the contents of a v ...

The sixth celestial sphere, the one the Romans called Jove or Jupiter, represents the opening of our sixth chakra or third eye. We discover a sort of partnership or union with our higher selves. It is at this level that we become a complete human being, our fully realized spiritual self. In this talk we explore what this level of consciousness is l…
 
When a person on the spiritual path reaches the Martian celestial sphere, one of three things will happen. For most of us, the scientific materialists among us for example, this part of ourselves remains invisible and simply adds energy to the intensity and passion of our baser emotions. For the spiritually inclined, it will most often open up into…
 
Just as the planets in our solar system orbit around the Sun, the mind seems to rotate perpetually around the ego. Observing a mysterious energy that shifts as Earth moves through space, the ancient astrologers developed a map not just of the heavens and their predictable movements, but also of the human personality. Like the repeated pattern of th…
 
It doesn't look like the Church is taking dominion in 2020. It's been a wild and crazy summer, and if anything, we're losing ground to the spirit of antichrist in our generation. Riots, COVID, the breakdown of civilization--we've got it all in 2020. Is there reason for optimism? Is this a time to plant deep roots of tradition, and to think great th…
 
The planet Venus represents wisdom and peace and harmony. She also symbolizes beauty, love and relationships. But what do these words mean, really? How do they apply to your life? And is there any significance to these sensibilities and ideas being associated with the second planet from the sun? Astrology is like ancient codex holding the secrets t…
 
In ancient Mesopotamia, the Babylonians were among the first peoples in history to decode the secrets of the heavens. Their great god Nabu was believed to be in the form of the planet we now call Mercury. He was the god of literacy, reason, speech and knowledge. Harkening back to these ancient stories, with some help from Jesus, Buddha and Lao Tzu,…
 
The Astrological significance of the moon has long been known to be connected with emotions and the subconscious. In this talk we use the Islamic symbolism associated with the Moon to unlock a deeper and more powerful meaning. The moon becomes a pivot point, an invitation to discover your higher self.

Astrology explained for the skeptics. This is the first in a multi-part series discussing the origins and practical value of the ancient art of Astrology. Forget fortune telling and soothsaying. Astrology instead represents a roadmap to our best possible self and the happiest potential life. Listen to find out why and how. See acast.com/privacy for…
 
We get confused about how we are supposed to live our lives as Christians, as Christian men in particular. It may seem that to seek to gain power, influence, and wealth are at odds with our religion. After all, Jesus said Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal, but lay up fo…
 
The Buddha taught that the cure for suffering was following the Middle Way or practicing Skillful Means. But when you look these up you will often come up with ambiguous or unsatisfying explanations. In this talk, Zebediah Rice explains how to live these principles in everyday life. See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.…
 
In episode 13, we delve into the infamous witch hunts of Essex and East Anglia. Teddy takes us through witchcraft's history in England, the climate that led to a fanatical hatred of witches, and the leader of the trials, Matthew Hopkins. Part of the Morbid Audio network-------------------------------------------------Your hosts: Catriona Morton and…
 
In episode 12, we dive into the first episode of a mini series on mysterious and strange stories from the seas surrounding Britain. In the first part, Catriona takes us round the coast of Western Scotland, introducing us to an unsolved mystery, a piece of folklore and an unusual weather phenomena. Hope you brought your towel.Part of the Morbid Audi…
 
We all know things look really bad right now. The dusk is getting duskier, and our hopes for a quickly improved society are fading with the light. How long will things be getting worse? When will things get better? These are questions everyone has on their mind, and Scott Tungay has a view to what we might do to begin the restoration of Western lif…
 
We can say that there are two ways to look at the experience of life. On the one hand, the ancient masters tell us that the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand (Jesus), that Nirvana (Buddhism) or Moksha (Hinduism) will release us from suffering, that the nature of the Tao will free us, or that submission to Allah will shift our consciousness to Illuminati…
 
In the Middle Ages there lived a man whose insights provide invaluable lessons for how to live a happy, healthy and peaceful life today. His name was Muhammad Ibn ‘Arabi. Ibn ‘Arabi was reportedly one of history’s spiritual geniuses. Widely known by the title Shaykh al-Akbar (“The Greatest Master”), even in his own time, this 12th century Islamic m…
 
Why do bad things happen to good people? How can anyone have faith in a higher power or greater force of love in the world when innocent people suffer so greatly, so often, and in such large numbers? This is not a new question. In fact, one of the more mysterious stories coming to us through the Jewish tradition, the story of Job, grapples with thi…
 
Theonomy! The women shriek and faint, the children hide under their covers (along with a good many grown men), the stouthearted shut the doors and draw the shades. The term conjures fears of stonings of naughty children, and austere clerics running a cowed society devoid of freedoms. But is Christian Theonomy just our version of an Islamic patriarc…
 
It may seem like we are a victim of our circumstances and that we are subject to the emotions that arise within us. But the great masters of old like Buddha along with contemporary teachers like Victor Frankl, have shown us that we have a choice in the matter. It is we who manufacture our reality. See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out infor…
 
What is the purpose of life? The great masters throughout the ages have had varied answers: Buddha: To end suffering ... and realize your true nature of non-self Mohammed: To serve Allah's purpose via submission to the Divine Will Jesus: To love god with all your heart, all your mind and all your soul Krishna: Leave behind the material self and unl…
 
The ancient masters left us their "lecture notes" but somehow most of the "lab notes" didn't make it through to today. In other words, we can read about "letting go" or "let Jesus" or "non-judgement, non-reaction and non-resistance" or "skillful means" or "submission" and so on but how do we put these concepts from the "lecture notes" into practice…
 
Who would win? In one corner, a vast, decentralized network of Wuhan's finest gobbler bugs that you can't see, who just want to get to know your lungs a little more intimately and overwhelm your national healthcare system, and in the other, the overgrown Babylonian supertower ripe for a nice 10.0 earthquake of God's wrath. Are you ready for this fi…
 
Nothingness is a concept that comes up again and again. We see it in the Christian and Islamic traditions, we see it in the Buddhist and Taoist traditions. In this talk, we explore what this abstract concept means and how to put it into practice in everyday life using the Buddhist concepts of "skillful means" and the Four Noble Truths, the scientif…
 
In episode 9, its a dark and stormy night and Teddy is here with some ghost stories from the subterranean world of the London Underground. There's plenty of history hidden in those winding tunnels.Part of the Morbid Audio Network.-------------------------------------------------Your hosts: Catriona Morton and Teddy PotterIntro and Outro music: The …
 
This talk covers the illusory nature of the self in contrast to the typical view, how this relates to why suffering occurs, and how to experience the true nature of reality. Using examples from neuroscience as well as ancient mystical texts such as the Diamond Sutra and the letters of St. Paul, we unpack what it means when the mystical masters old …
 
The first in a series of talks called Kalyanamitra sessions. Kalyanamitra means "teacher". Unlike Guru (which also means teacher), Kalyanamitra has more the flavor of "spiritual friend" than "master"-connotation that Guru has. In that spirit, Zebediah Rice offers an introductory talk, followed by discussion with the group. The talk covers the lower…
 
2020 has begun, and things around us really are melting down as quickly as it seems. The Western world is in a tailspin, all the red warning lights are flashing from the control panel, and we only have a little time left to prepare for the shift coming. I don't mean to scare you, but we all know it. We've had doomsday on the mind ever since the daw…
 
Zander Ford hosts a podcast called Conscious Founders. He summarizes what he is up to with the following intro: "Learn how to live a joyous life while creating amazing businesses. Explore Virtual Reality tools, tips, and tricks that accelerate Human performance." Zander has graciously allowed me to repost the interview on the Happy Life podcast. Yo…
 
Western Civilization has a major problem - yes, there are many - but this one stands out like a broken, burned, and bashed thumb. We aren't reproducing. We are an anti-natal, anti-family world in 2019, and it is only getting worse. In this episode, Adam attacks head on one of the most critical issues contributing to the collapse of our civilization…
 
We have finally reached the last episode and the final stage of mastery. Sadly, at the 8th Stage of Mastery, we are at a point where there is very little we can say. As Buddha puts it in the Diamond Sutra, “Words cannot express the truth; that which words express is not the truth.” (Ch. 21) Or as Lao Tzu puts in in the first lines of the Tao Te Chi…
 
Nearly there! At Stage 7 the master at this level has surpassed nearly all the other levels; they have transcended the world of the senses so completely that they are anchored in the Divine realm more than they are in the physical. More often we hear this stage simply called Enlightenment. In summary, the 8 stages are: LOWER SELF -- DYSFUNCTIONAL S…
 
The 6th stage of Mastery is the consciousness of some of the greatest masters to have lived. Jesus, Krishna, Buddha, Lao Tzu, Moses, Zarathustra and Mohammed are a few of the people likely who achieved this level (at least). It goes by many names, depending on the time and the place. For example, the Hindus might have described it as the stage at w…
 
In this episode, Adam explains how a proper understanding of God's place as supreme in our thinking can help uproot false beliefs. Buckle up for three recent examples of Adam arguing with people who hold to false ideas, some close to the truth, some far. But the same method takes them all out. What do you think? Good, critical thinking is a major p…
 
Last episode Adam attacked the weak foundation of Roman Catholicism, but today we go against dispensationalism. Why? Because not only is it a false doctrine, which detracts from God's glory when preached as truth, but it undermines our mission and confidence in this world. In fact, I hate dispensationalism. I love my brethren who hold to it, and I …
 
The higher self begins at Stage 5. It is at this stage that we finally can be called a Master. This episode explains what Stage 5 or Holy Spirit Consciousness looks like and how it is distinguished from the prior levels. In summary, the stages are: LOWER SELF -- DYSFUNCTION Stage 1: Physical (aka Gross or Four Elements) Stage 2: Dysfunction (aka Em…
 
We need to diagnose what's killing evangelicalism, and we need to ask how we fight on in a time of general confusion and weakness. Come listen to part 2 of Adam's sit-down interview with the CEO of CompassCare, Jim Harden. Jim is a non-denominational conservative evangelical. We range across a plethora of trails in the landscape, observing and crit…
 
Masters are the apex of human experience. But, like a black belt, becoming a Master is just the beginning. Before diving in to what the higher levels are all about and going through each one in detail, in this episode we look at how to tell when someone is a master and how one becomes a master. In summary, the stages are: LOWER SELF -- DYSFUNCTIONA…
 
Christians are promised "the full assurance of understanding" in Christ, "in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge." The Roman Catholic, however, is forced to deny full assurance of understanding, based on his embrace of an erroneous epistemology centered on the pope, rather than Christ. When we ask the Roman Catholic "where is …
