PODCAST MIX VOL 2 - DJ BL3ND
Meant to Live
Switchfoot • The Beautiful Letdown
We want more than this world’s got to offer
We want more than the wars of our fathers
And everything inside screams for second life
We were meant to live for so much more
Have we lost ourselves?

Stage 6: Universalizing faith is exceedingly rare. The persons best described by it have generated faith compositions in which their felt sense of an ultimate environment is inclusive of all being. They have become incarnators and actualizers of the spirit of an inclusive and fulfilled human community. They are “contagious” in the sense that they create zones of liberation from the social, political, economic and ideological shackles we place and endure on human futurity. Living with felt participation in a power that unifies and transforms the world, Universalizers are often experienced as subversive of the structures (including religious structures) by which we sustain our individual and corporate survival, security and significance. Many persons in this stage die at the hands of those whom they hope to change. Universalizers are often more honored and revered after death than during their lives. The rare persons who may be described by this stage have a special grace that makes them seem more lucid, more simple, and yet somehow more fully human than the rest of us. Their community is universal in extent. Particularities are cherished because they are vessels of the universal, and thereby valuable apart from any utilitarian considerations. Life is both loved and held to loosely. Such persons are ready for fellowship with persons at any of the other stages and from any other faith tradition.
A disposable society is only fit for disposable people. ~Bryant McGill
“Dare to believe that good things are possible when you follow your heart.”
“Know yourself. Be yourself. Love yourself. Seek goodness and be goodness. Seek beauty and be beauty. Seek love and be love.” ~Bryant McGill
“Publicity and transparency scatter the strong, powerful agents of control into the shadows. Like all cowards, brutes in any number flee when their spell of fear has no effect.” ~Bryant McGill (From Book, Voice of Reason)
What is your title?
What is your occupation?
How do you occupy yourself?
Are you occupied?
Who is the occupier?
Does the occupier have rules?
Do you perform the occupier’s bidding?
Where is the sovereign space of your self?
If not within you, then where?
Hi. Nice to meet you. What do you do?
Tell me about freedom…
Quitting a job can be like an exorcism where you cast out a demon. The demon is the foreign spirit who occupies you through your occupation.
In the fury and sweat; beating breath and blood,
for a moment, they left all dimensions, to the void.
And therein the cosmic heart of nothingness, they found again,
a tender splinter of one soul united.
Like a germ seed of creation; to explode from their chests,
like a budding cosmic flower—
To become the universe once again, so they could be born,
and find each other, for this moment…
