 Ep. 33: Selflessness Over Self-Love | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 903

In this podcast, Amadon DellErba talks about the virtue of selflessness over “self-love” and the dangers of #selflove​ becoming selfishness.  In the world of social media today there is tremendous emphasis on self-love and little-to-none on selfless service to our brothers and sisters.  What is lacking in our culture that we have to focus on loving ourselves so much?  Could it be the constant messages from various forms of media implying we are not good enough, smart enough, rich enough, skinny enough, good-looking enough, cool enough, etc.  Drawing on concepts and quotes from The URANTIA Book and the life of The Master, Amadon points to the root problem that we are not living today in a culture of love and acceptance, and that the true nature of this concept of “self-love” is more about the desire to have self-worth and self-esteem.  Our consumer culture tries to supplant this desire with a focus on taking care of one’s self, but the true path to achieving the highest form of “self love” and self respect is the path of selfless service; of being our brother’s and sister’s keeper.  Amadon says, “Unselfishness ennobles the soul and sharpens one’s spiritual intelligence, and most importantly brings peace to the heart, and fills a person with meaning and joy.”  --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/getrealordietrying/message

 Ep. 32: Meekness Is Not Weakness | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 697

In this podcast, Amadon DellErba talks about the virtue of meekness. Meekness is not weakness, but it is often misunderstood. Meekness is a way of relating to others. It is a controlled strength. It shouldn’t be relegated to the past as a lost, archaic virtue, but should be upheld as a goal for today’s spiritual seeker. In his exploration of meekness, Amadon pulls from The URANTIA Book, The New Testament, Sir Thomas Browne, and writings from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

 Ep. 30: Spiritual Maturity - Self-Mastery & God Consciousness | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1177

In this podcast, Amadon DellErba talks about Spiritual Maturity, Self-Mastery, & God Consciousness.  The pursuit of spiritual maturity and self-mastery is the path to God consciousness - it’s a life of selfless service, a focus on the inner rather than outer life, a dedication to teamwork and cooperation, and continual truth seeking.  Amadon draws from the powerful teachings presented in The URANTIA Book by the Greek philosopher, Rodan of Alexandria, who taught extensively on the subject.  A key take-away is the importance of elders in our lives - we cannot grow into true spiritual maturity without guidance and correction. (GR\DT 30) “The spiritually mature individual desires the spiritual coach.” ~ Amadon DellErba --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/getrealordietrying/message

 Ep. 28: Flexibility Without Compromise | Spiritual Adaptability | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1152

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. 26: Patience & Perseverance - Righteousness vs. Self Righteousness (Looking back… 5 Years Later) | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 2120

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

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
