Show Notes  Today we’re doing something new… again. Since we are all sheltering in our homes, in quarantine, I have found many suggestions for maintaining sanity. One of the best suggestions out there is the one that satisfies a fundamental human need for connection: And that is “making phone calls” to friends, especially long lost friends. So, what I decided to test is making one of the conversations on the podcast—live. The format is that I have contacted the person beforehand, just to let them know I wanted them to be on the podcast. And then I call them from the show to hold...

Show Notes  Truth is, the original podcast today lost good audio connection in taping, and could not be published today. I hope to publish another version next week. So, instead of failing to post a podcast, Producer Paul, Terry Hershey and I did a 30 minute unprepared and unedited show on some interesting ideas of coping with the quarantine on “renaming” the situation we find ourselves in—one of opposites: the need for solitude in a crowded home and the need for a supportive and dependable community to depend on in these kind of circumstance. No prepared questions with just a...

The Next Chapter with Charlie

Show Notes  We are doing a timely show as we are deep in the initial stages of the Coronavirus on March 18, 2020 where virtually everything is cancelled or closed: schools and churches are cancelled, bars and clubs are closed, restaurants are closed to the public except for take out, no gathering of people at all so all events are cancelled from concerts to all sporting events to all conferences. And worst of all, Starbucks is limited to drive-through. But, as our friend Terry Hershey wrote in his blog, Sabbath Moment, last Monday, one very important thing has not been cancelled, and that...

The Next Chapter with Charlie

Show Notes  Over the weekend I came across a quote by playwright George Bernard Shaw who wrote this, “Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.” Let’s dissect that quote just a bit. First of all Shaw says that “Progress is not possible without change.” Assuming you are an advocate of Progress, then you cannot have progress without changing something. That’s a given. But then notice where Shaw goes with the next piece of his quote. I find it quite unexpected: “and those who cannot change their minds cannot change...

Show Notes  Today’s episode is once again with my dear friend Terry Hershey who in two days will give a talk on emotional and spiritual immune systems. Before he told me about his speaking gig I had never really considered such a thing as emotional or spiritual immune systems. The thought intrigued me and so… here we are. I thought about it and it occurred to me: When we take a vaccine, we are actually injected with a micro dose of the disease so that our bodies can build up an immune system. So I wondered, “Is the same thing true of our emotions?” If so, then it must be the case...

The Next Chapter with Charlie

Show Notes  As regular listeners know I am prone to experiment with different forms of podcast. Most of the time I conduct interviews, sometimes I just talk and sometimes Producer Paul and I talk. Today is altogether different. MY dear friend Terry Hershey will interview me… well, sort of. I will still take the lead, but Terry will ask questions of the experience I recently encountered. From this point on, please know these thoughts today come from another, newly recognized state of consciousness. So expect meandering and ramblings. Because “soul talk” is not made for words.  ...

The Next Chapter with Charlie

Show Notes  Today is an extra special day as we have with us in studio Leah Kagasa, who is Miss Uganda 2016. I am so excited to interview Leah as she has lived a most interesting life: from experiencing life in poverty stricken rural Uganda, to life in a very small city, on to excellent public education, university, and was then surprised to run for and win the Miss Uganda Beauty Pageant in 2016. Leah is currently a fashion model, a representative of Uganda and most importantly a very active philanthropist. As a matter of fact, I met Leah when she became interested in representing Wells...

The Next Chapter with Charlie

Show Notes  Paul, today’s subject is not a light one. In fact, it may be one of the most troubling subjects I have discussed on the show after more than 130 episodes. Today is about very deep human pain and suffering, AND the potential learnings that can result, if one chooses to take that path. Although we may love learning about life and our deepest inner selves… the path there is often most unpleasant. David Whyte alludes to the power of suffering when he writes, “Suffering is as inescapable and inevitable as breathing…” If suffering is inescapable and inevitable, it might be...

Show Notes  Paul, today is my New Year’s Resolution episode, and it’s already more than two weeks late. I fear that may be sort of a projection of how my New Year’s Intentions will come to pass this year… late. In my Myers Briggs Personality Style Inventory, I fall into the class that defines “on time” as “always late.” I’ve thought about it, I have determined that the deadlines associated with so many of our New Year’s goals really are false goals, because they are pretty much established rather arbitrarily the moment we made up our “goals.” My guest today, our...

I thought about it and it occurred to me: When we take a vaccine, we are actually injected with a micro dose of the disease so that our bodies can build up an immune system. So I wondered, “Is the same thing true of our emotions?”

If so, then it must be the case that our emotional and/or spiritual Immune systems are developed in our brains only when we allow a negative emotion to have its way for a while.
