    Sunday Sermon

    Sunday Sermon

    God, Prayer, Grace, Mercy, if any of those topics make you uncomfortable, skip this episode; it's a recording of Sunday's sermon at Unity Church, bridging the gap between my upbringing, religion, and Buddhism, in a way to which people of faith can relate.

    Priorities

    Priorities

    Our actions convey our priorities but we often fail to contemplate the WHY behind people's actions. When you argue with someone, you’re trying to prove WHO is right, but in a discussion, both parties are trying to find out WHAT is right.

    My Panic Attack

    My Panic Attack

    I am typically calm and collected, so when I experienced a panic attack that triggered serious suicidal thoughts, it was mindfulness, meditation, surrender, and a mantra that brought me back to center. Years ago, I made a commitment to be vulnerable and transparent with all of you, and this was the lowest point in my adult life but I'd be a hack if I kept it from you. This is me. But I'm grateful for the tools with which to work through it all. Your brother, Timber Hawkeye

    Losing all hope is freedom? What?! Have a listen to distinguish between faith and hope, and learn to hold all opinions lightly so there's room to accept other people's reality as valid as our own.

Thank You

I practice yoga and feel zen a few hours after , especially when the instructor says something that resonates with me.

I fell upon this podcast by accident and I actually think the universe made me see it.

So many of these short messages are so what I needed.

They are also short and to the point. So if your working on yourself you can listen to the message many times throughout your week.

Thank-you

My husband is a Buddhist and I could not understand some of the things he would try to teach me, to help me through life’s suffering and so on. However, listening to your words helped put together what he says, how he is reacting to the pandemic and more. He is a most patient man despite much physical suffering he experiences. Now I understand this patience. It doesn’t matter if you are Catholic, Jewish, Buddhist, etc.; learn from the teachings. It is as you said: Be kind to each other. I am so happy to have your podcast to listen to.

These messages will help you shift

I rarely write reviews but I am completely compelled to do so now for Timber and this podcast! The messages are short on the time line and plant deep seeds of thought provoking change opportunities! I cannot thank Timber and all of us here who hold space for the “ unique” times we are in and how important the perspective that is offered is to our growth!
Is Timber a guru? Not for me to say.
Is and are his messages important,insighfult, and impeccable in their timing? For me ( and based on the many ither comments I have read) indeed they have been!
The light in me honors the light in everyone who reads this. Thanks for being part of this space and time with me and with all of us.
-peace
