Timothy Glenn ~ Relationship Key Words

One of my very favorite articles by Timothy Glenn! I even make a Faerie cameo. 😉

Relationship Keywords

by Timothy Glenn

As we transition from the artificial matrix of the old world into the Natural Reality of the New Earth, we are individually and collectively expanding into a profoundly different dimension of conscious evolution. If we as Beings shift to such a significant degree, it automatically follows that the nature of relationship will change as well.

A couple decades or so ago, I assembled a group of keywords to contrast relationships of the old world with relationships of the New Earth. In recently sharing these perspectives with clients, the realization dawned: the original text had never made it onto the internet.

Here are three pairs of contrasting keywords.

Old World: Personal

All our relationships in the old world operated purely on a personal level. Everything was done personally, and taken personally. Ego games abounded, complete with power plays and loads of manipulation. Been there, done that? Join the club. Bought the t-shirt as well? By now, perhaps that old t-shirt has faded and fallen apart from so many washings.

Upon entering into any old world relationship, it was as though the other person took a snapshot of you and thereby defined your beingness now and forevermore. We can probably not even count how many times we have heard lines like: “Well, you’re not the girl I married.” A reasonable response could be: “Yeah, well…thank God. Growth and transformation are sort of natural.”

New Earth: Transpersonal

A transpersonal relationship has the capacity to contain all the finest attributes of a strictly personal relationship, but affords the freedom to expand far beyond. Continue reading

Becca Tarnas ~ Dissertation Defense of “The Back of Beyond: The Red Books of C.G. Jung and J.R.R. Tolkien”

This video was yesterday afternoon’s treat following a busy several weeks of sessions, study and synchronicity. I have followed Becca’s graduate work for years, as her interests in the Imaginal Realm, Faerie, Jung, Tolkien, symbols, Story and astrology dovetail with my own. Had my 1998 TBI not rerouted me away from a PhD in English Literature, these kinds of studies would have been right up my alley. Actually, they still are; I just do them in a different way, with different ends.

In any case, this is a fascinating and brilliant dissertation defense. I love how all the academics recognize Becca for “bringing the Soul back to academia.” If you have an hour and 45 minutes, this talk delves into the world I live in, especially these past few weeks. Highly recommended!

Dixon’s Violin ~ I Wish I Could

Dixon’s Violin was the last of many amazing concerts we listened to last night at New Year’s Fest of Kalamazoo. Everything he does is complete improvisation, and the melodies he wove transported me to another realm. What an inspiring way to ring in 2018! Enjoy:

“I often hear people say with sadness “I wish I could…” followed by something they actually could do. I believe you can do anything you set your mind and heart to! If you find yourself saying those words, I encourage you to pause and consider: assume that you CAN do that thing, now what choices would you need to shift in your life? What actions can you take to make it happen? You are more powerful than you think! With love and in service, – Dixon”

Ryan Stone ~ The Secret Lives of Elves and Faeries: The Truth behind the Story of Rev Robert Kirk

Thanks to Anthony for forwarding the link to this Ancient Origins article! As I told him, I own both John Matthews’ book, The Sidhe, and the Reverend Robert Kirk “official” book, The Secret Commonwealth of Elves, Fauns, and Faeries. This article explores additional letters and stories that seem to indicate what many of us already suspected — namely, Rev. Kirk’s “myths and legends” recorded his actual experiences.
