Mike, but it went in all kinds of directions: From Lollapalooza and using our phones to look things up, to Winter Solstice and Spirals of Light and stone, which led to thoughts of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Dune, and then down YouTube rabbit holes--- Colbert and James Corden, Paul McCartney and Willie Nelson, intellectuals and quantum thinkers Yuval Harari, Oprah and Thich Nhat Hanh, Joe Dispenza and Fearless Soul, Mel Robbins and Impact Theory, and back to meditation tools and practicing stillness, creating space in your thoughts and your life for the good and the light!

  • Engaging from Spirit Within - Ep 44 - Thoughts on Talks

    16 NOV. 2020 · Rev. Mike and Malayna talk about the November 15th talk that asked about How Engaged is God as Us? We talked about how each of us can use our inner guidance to make our best choices, but also, how we can try to connect with others who may be doing the same, but who seem to be in opposition to us. We spoke of connections in the natural world and in mathematics that point us to inspiration and awe about our world. And we also ended up talking about how people unfamiliar with the Bible can understand some basics about the historical context and why a history of a tribe of people resonates with life today (and what to do when it doesn't resonate).

  • Political Consciousness - Ep 43 - Thoughts on Talks

    12 NOV. 2020 · Whereas the Talks we share Thoughts on are usually those given by Rev. Mike on Sundays, this episode examines Talks by Joe Biden, Van Jones, Emmanuel Acho and more. Malayna shared her #BlackLivesMatter face mask with art from Jenny Hahn Art.com (to complement her eco tee shirt) and spoke with Salaam about seeing Van Jones in tears the morning the election was called for Joe Biden. He shared about Ice Cube and Kamala and his wise wife saying we can't imagine what it would be like to be a political commentator. Then we discussed Van Jones' TED talk asking 'what if a president refuses to concede?", his #LoveArmy and some of the organizations that are continuing to work for a more democratic democracy. (See below!) And have you noticed that Rev. Mike is of Irish descent, like Joe Biden and Malayna is half-South Asian like Kamala? Just sayin'. And we talked about talks with our friends and family members, abroad or across the nation; the CONSCIOUSNESS behind our political motivations; and the human condition when power is involved. A shout out to the Unity Southwest Region and Rev. John Washington, and an invitation from Salaam to watch his Facebook live chat with his friends coming up. Van Jones suggested organizations: ChooseDemocracy.us ElectionTaskForce.org ProtectDemocracy.org Mobilize.us AllAmericans.org CivicAlliance.com The Fight Back Table @ Demos.org Voter Fraud: The Heritage Foundation Gov't Accountability Institute SUPPORT: ACLU.org Leadership Conference on Civil Rights - civilrights.org NAACP Legal Defense Fund - www.naacpldf.org Indivisible.org Color of Change.org
