Born Saved is the message that you are born whole. Not apart but on a journey back to wholeness. We look at our lives through the lens of being a divine human. Here to live as both Son of Man and Son of God.
We will look at the holy scripture of the bible as different forms of consciousness, as a metaphor, as something that literally happened but we will use it ultimately not a a prison but as liberation.
I hope you come with us on the ride.
Episode 15- Convergence
Convergence is when two or more things come together to form a new whole.
Both places of my life are a new whole, the before Jasmine time and my after Jasmine time. I spent the last 8 years really feeling ashamed and agonizing over all of the s****y things I did but lately things have been feeling different...
So happy to announce Born Saved Sessions. These sessions are for anyone who want to share where they're at on their journey and typically will be for someone who has felt very conflicted about their christian past. I am just here to listen. See you on the other side.
Book a BornSaved Session
Where am I going ?
Why do I share what I believe to bring down what someone else believes?
The whole point of sharing the viewpoint that I believe I am God was to take full responsibility for myself. I realized this podcast has become a deconstructionist podcast when I only ever meant to share my personal journey.
So listen now and see where we are going :)
Episode 13- My Why.
In episode one of the podcast I touched briefly on why I created BORNSAVED but after re-listening to I realized that I shared what it is but not its why.
I observed that I had accepted myself but not forgiven myself. Forgiveness defined as a formal release from guilt, obligation, and punishment.
So here I am coming out openly as a lover of the christ that I am. I am openly a lover of the the kingdom that lives within me.
Enjoy and please share reflections. All the blessings.
Episode 12- Matthew 7:5 Plank in your Own Eye
Moments like Will Smith slapping Chris Rock at the Oscars is a collective moment for all of us to look inside and engage with the war that lies in each of us.
Most of us look at these moments as outside of ourselves to make ourselves feel better. The truth is that whatever is happening to another human is also happening to us.
Episode 11- John 15:15 No longer Servants
Will we choose to be a creator or a servant.
The choice is always ours.
Episode 10- What is going on with me?(feat. Interview by Glo)
Having been gone the last couple of Months I thought it was perfect timing to release episode 10 as a dual release from my dear friend Glo of The Infinite Podcast.
Glo did a magnificent job of just checking in with me on what it hitting my heart, pulling extra things out my story that I haven't shared yet and challenging me to be vulnerable about my desires where I see my body going.
I hope you enjoy and please like, share, and follow podcast. Cheers Fam:)
Alex’s is saying what many of us have been thinking
I’m a 45-year old, single, former 3-day-a-week church-goer, small group leader, weekly church volunteer, missionary, passion and purity-i kiss dating goodbye- virgin until 44 (actually i hand even kissed a guy until that same year) and 3 hour-hour-a-day pray and reader of the bible. Mid 2020 I left the USA in search of what my soul wasn’t experiencing in the US or within the church. I was desperate to see the magical and mysterious - anything ‘beyond’ my dead, dormant, dull logic. I had NO idea the shape the path would take, but, almost serendipitously, it’s incredibly similar to Alex’s journey. I too became cracked open as I shifted my ‘proof texts’ from Puritanical enlightenment thinking, to my own experience. I saw it first in old, dank churches in London, Spain, and Portugal that proclaimed a subservient, submissive and bent-soul-posture were how were to experience His goodness. To Istanbul, where I felt more loving and open energy in the Haggai Sofia than I did in my own church back home, to post-Soviet Tbilsi, Georgia where I saw again, the oppression of an religious organization whose piety structures kept people, closed and angry and in the posture of a grateful beggars. To Bali, where I thought I would find all kinds of Magic, but saw there, how self-proclaimed gurus use their exotic Balinese backdrop to validate their own spiritual prison systems that keep people dependently ‘on a leash’ with them. I SAY ALLLLLLL OF THAT (it’s a lot for a review i know) to emphasize the following. Alex is a voice for this new generation. His soul is here for this. His insights feel so familiar, it’s almost like something i may have written in my own journal…. Which make me feel aligned to The things he saying that much more. His history of being ‘in the faith’ builds immediate trust. He articulates the things Christians ‘don’t say’ but the internal conflict many of us who have grown up in the faith experience. He dares suggest the thing that was the last straw before I said I started really expanding… And that’s the truth of “Christ & “… Not “Christ only ‘… not Bible only .. no Quran only… And he does so with grace, wisdom, meaty insight and a generous neutrality. His refreshing honesty while recounting the details of his story connects us even further to hidden truths of our own. This podcast is important. It offers the thousands of us beginning to poke our heads up out from what we’ve been taught -to a new world of inner knowing. Thank you 🤍🙏🏻 Alex (and Jas. *So glad you said yes to the TBM podcast ;-)
A deeper understanding of life
Alex does an amazing job going into the depth of perspective of the meaning and understanding of the lives we are living. Questioning the old and bringing forth a new, for us to gain a deeper understanding of life. I’m truly grateful for these words he brings forth. Calming & soothing for the ears to listen to. Grateful beyond words for his wisdom!
Incredibly thought provoking and much needed voice
I have listened to each episode more than once now and have taken something new each time. I grew up (especially my formative teenage years) in a very Baptist church where so many verses were being pulled from the Bible and distorted each and every week and although I felt off, I couldn’t explain it and yet I knew there was something more to this, something different. The God I know, the Jesus I am told about each week at church cannot be the one you speak of, the one who says such things and turns down his children because of a b and c and yet there I was. These episodes bring me back to my place of questioning and validate my uneasiness, I hear the verses that Alex mentions and many I have heard before but they ring different now and it’s so beautiful to be able to say that I no longer feel this animosity when I hear the text. This is the truest most vulnerable story I have heard from someone who was so entrenched in the “Christian world” and found a way out, found their truth and they’re not afraid to say it! This is profound and I truly recommend to anyone everyone i know especially sooo many of those that are in this middle space of leaving the church and not knowing where to go. Thank you Alexander for all you do, for your vulnerability, for your honesty, and for speaking your truth and allowing us to do the same 🙏
