In this podcast, Amadon DellErba interviews Dr. Bruce Lipton, bestselling author of  “The Biology of Belief: Unleashing the Power of Consciousness, Matter & Miracles.” Bruce H. Lipton, PhD is an internationally recognized leader in bridging science and spirit. Stem cell biologist and recipient of the 2009 Goi Peace Award, he has been a guest speaker on hundreds of TV and radio shows, as well as keynote presenter for national and international conferences. He is regarded as one of the leading voices of the new biology. Dr. Lipton began his scientific career as a cell biologist, receiving his Ph.D. Degree from the University of Virginia at Charlottesville. In 1982, Dr. Lipton began examining the principles of quantum physics and how they might be integrated into his understanding of the cell’s information processing systems. His breakthrough studies on the cell membrane revealed that this outer layer of the cell was an organic homologue of a computer chip, the cell’s equivalent of a brain.  Dr. Lipton’s novel scientific approach transformed his personal life as well. His deepened understanding of cell biology highlighted the mechanisms by which the mind controls bodily functions, and implied the existence of an immortal spirit. He applied this science to his personal biology, and discovered that his physical well-being improved, and the quality and character of his daily life was greatly enhanced. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/getrealordietrying/message

In this podcast, Amadon DellErba talks about the virtue of selflessness over “self-love” and the dangers of #selflove​ becoming selfishness.  In the world of social media today there is tremendous emphasis on self-love and little-to-none on selfless service to our brothers and sisters.  What is lacking in our culture that we have to focus on loving ourselves so much?  Could it be the constant messages from various forms of media implying we are not good enough, smart enough, rich enough, skinny enough, good-looking enough, cool enough, etc.  Drawing on concepts and quotes from The URANTIA Book and the life of The Master, Amadon points to the root problem that we are not living today in a culture of love and acceptance, and that the true nature of this concept of “self-love” is more about the desire to have self-worth and self-esteem.  Our consumer culture tries to supplant this desire with a focus on taking care of one’s self, but the true path to achieving the highest form of “self love” and self respect is the path of selfless service; of being our brother’s and sister’s keeper.  Amadon says, “Unselfishness ennobles the soul and sharpens one’s spiritual intelligence, and most importantly brings peace to the heart, and fills a person with meaning and joy.”  --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/getrealordietrying/message
In this podcast, Amadon DellErba talks about the virtue of meekness. Meekness is not weakness, but it is often misunderstood. Meekness is a way of relating to others. It is a controlled strength. It shouldn’t be relegated to the past as a lost, archaic virtue, but should be upheld as a goal for today’s spiritual seeker. In his exploration of meekness, Amadon pulls from The URANTIA Book, The New Testament, Sir Thomas Browne, and writings from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

In this podcast, Amadon DellErba talks about today’s Cancel Culture / Call-Out Culture and how we can build a more Accountable Culture. In addition to his own thoughts on the subject, Amadon cites Ligaya Mishan’s New York Times article: “The Long and Tortured History of Cancel Culture.” Amadon discusses the importance of confrontation and accountability, and how immature it is to ostracize people on the fringes of society. He also looks at scapegoating and the lack of education, rehabilitation, and compassion in our broken society. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/getrealordietrying/message
In this podcast, Amadon DellErba talks about Spiritual Maturity, Self-Mastery, & God Consciousness.  The pursuit of spiritual maturity and self-mastery is the path to God consciousness - it’s a life of selfless service, a focus on the inner rather than outer life, a dedication to teamwork and cooperation, and continual truth seeking.  Amadon draws from the powerful teachings presented in The URANTIA Book by the Greek philosopher, Rodan of Alexandria, who taught extensively on the subject.  A key take-away is the importance of elders in our lives - we cannot grow into true spiritual maturity without guidance and correction. (GR\DT 30) “The spiritually mature individual desires the spiritual coach.” ~ Amadon DellErba --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/getrealordietrying/message

In this podcast, Amadon DellErba discusses flexibility without compromise and the art of spiritual adaptability.  Regardless of our various religious, political, and/or social backgrounds, we have the opportunity to let consciousness unite us. It is a form of spiritual intelligence that unites individuals and builds bridges. "Without consciousness you separate; with consciousness, you connect." Another huge problem in our society is narcissism. This selfish trait fuels the current division in our country. There is strength to be found in adaptation. Through acceptance and grace you can "know thyself" and come into a deeper understanding of who you are. (GR\DT 28) --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/getrealordietrying/message
In this podcast Amadon DellErba discusses anarchy vs. spiritual hierarchy.  In response to the corruption we see in politics and governments today many youth embrace anarchy, but does it work?  Recognizing the need for change, in 2011 and 2012 Amadon and the Global Change Media team attended many of the Occupy protests happening around the US with Gabriel of Urantia's Spiritualution movement.  Amadon shares the story of a protest in Phoenix that went from an angry run-in with an anarchist cell who thought they were cops to marching with and interviewing Reverend Jesse Jackson. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/getrealordietrying/message
In this podcast Amadon DellErba reflects on patience and perseverance by commenting on a video he shot five years ago on self righteousness vs. righteousness. We humans can so easily adopt a holier-than-thou attitude.  The “reformed smoker” syndrome is real and we can probably all relate to becoming self-righteous about something.  A good reminder that the most effective way to teach and share higher consciousness is by example.  When we change for the better, we naturally want others to do the same.  And if they don’t, we can get frustrated, impatient and/or prideful.  In this episode we are reminded the only way to truly inspire others to change and grow is through patience, kindness and humility. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/getrealordietrying/message
In this podcast, Amadon DellErba discusses unity without uniformity, a concept from The URANTIA Book. In our world today that is so divided in so many ways, the attainment of unity can feel like an impossible goal; but it isn’t.  What inhibits and what fosters unity among people? An encouraging and inspiring podcast about finding our common spiritual denominator – that we are all created beings who come from the same Creator.  This episode concludes with a real-life story of finding unity without uniformity among 300 men from all walks of like sharing a jail cell after being arrested for protesting at Occupy Wall Street. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/getrealordietrying/message
In this podcast, Amadon DellErba explores the art of listening as a spiritual practice and the difference between listening vs. hearing.

Truly listening to others with a desire to understand and empathize with them is a spiritual principle for soul ascension and healthy, growing relationships.  He also discusses what we should and shouldn't be listening to.   --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/getrealordietrying/message

In this podcast, Amadon DellErba talks about the spiritual life lessons from boxing, UFC, MMA, and other combat sports. In the ring of life, we can learn a lot from the champions of discipline and self-mastery. Professional athletes display a level of fortitude and commitment to their goals that we can all use in life. We can have the same warrior mentality in life that fighters use in the ring. The attitude includes courage, focus, discipline, commitment, and passion. Amadon talks about some of the greatest figures in boxing, including Mike Tyson, Roy Jones Jr, Muhamed Ali (Cassius Clay), Ernie Terrel, George Foreman, Manny Paquiao, and Floyd Maywether. Being a champion can cause distortions in how we perceive ourselves. Success can bring a big ego, so it’s important to find humility and not get cocky. Using The URANTIA Book, Amadon explores failure and defeat; how to lose gracefully. Even when you get knocked down for the 10 count in life, you need to get back up, get in the fight, and adapt to the present moment. The past is useful only if it is used to prepare for the future. Our growth and goals in life can benefit from the lessons learned in boxing and other combat sports. We can build our spiritual muscles of virtue and character with the same focus and discipline as professional athletes and become Champions of Humility. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/getrealordietrying/message
In this podcast, Amadon DellErba discusses self-awareness and the importance of growing out of self-importance. In the pursuit of self-mastery we have to go through the painful process of ego death; becoming more aware of our true self and less invested in our false identity.  Self-importance, or the exaggerated opinion of one’s own importance, is a common problem in today’s society. Everybody can feel self-important at times, especially strong people who are competent and recognized for their talents and abilities. Self-importance often leads to isolation because people don’t value teamwork and interdependence. Our attitude towards life is key to our self-mastery. We can easily think our souls are flawed or cursed when really, we simply need to shift our thinking, from thoughts of presumptuousness to thoughts of gratitude.  Amadon pulls from other sources including Stuart Wilde, Viktor Frankl, Santeen, Gabriel of Urantia to further support his thoughts on and understanding of self-awareness. Lastly, Amadon shares a short passage from The URANTIA Book, illustrating how we can use humor to help us all take ourselves less seriously, while remembering the greatness and grandeur of the Creator.  --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/getrealordietrying/message
