#77 – New Year’s inspiration for spiritual workers

Episode 77 long

On behalf of the team at the Spiritual Freedom Show I’d like to wish you all a Happy New Year!

If there is anything that will help us in the year ahead, bravery is surely on that list.

Bravery is not just a necessary step we have to take in order to become spiritual. It is so much more than that.

This week Mark Bennett shares a message for spiritual workers everywhere to help inspire you in your work and give you strength for whatever may lie ahead!

Join international bestselling author Richard Lawrence and guests to discover the wisdom of The Nine Freedoms. Richard has appeared on hundreds of radio shows around the world and is the author of 11 books including Contacts With The Gods From Space and Realize Your Inner Potential, both of which he co-authored with Master of Yoga Dr. George King – his spiritual master.

    It simply does not make any sense to ask « But what if the bravery is used for something bad?»
    If it is «bad» it is not an act done out of bravery.

      Hi Leonor,

      I think Mark made the point in quite a balanced way in the show. A bad person doing a bad thing can still demonstrate bravery.

      “Well, I think, when [bravery is used for something bad], in one way it is a terrible thing, because it is the perversion of something inherently holy – a great holy power – like turning the cross upside down.

      “In another way, the bad person doing the bad thing – for which I am offering no excuse – is at least showing themselves capable of bravery, even in a perverse sense, and then, when they eventually, perhaps through the lives, see sense and turn to the light, they can use that experience – that character trait – for good – like turning the cross back the right way round. Whereas the coward has, as it were, metaphorically speaking, no cross at all, to turn upside down or the right way round.

      “And another point Dr. King made about this was that in actual fact, you can’t really be brave and be bad, because being bad is in itself an act of fear in one way or another. So I’d like to end with this point – with this very inspiring message for all of us, taken from a lecture he gave on the Sixth Freedom: “You cannot have bravery without truth, believe me. It’s a part of it. Immediately you take to truth, you feel braver, you have nothing to fear, as such.””

        «Bravery is something which comes from applied Wisdom and Knowledge». Dr. George King
