Loving Kindness and Self Mastery
June 14, 2011
Hosted by Terry Canady and Thom Schumacher
In the midst of a sometimes crazy and often maddening world, we all know how hard it can be to keep our peace and hold our tongues. We may think that only a saint could manage the miracle of total self-control…and maybe we’re not as “saintly” as we could be. But every saint began their upward journey more or less where we began ours. And we don’t need to get it right every time in order to advance on our spiritual path. We should remember – and take comfort from the fact – that each victory, big or small, is significant. And each failure is simply another opportunity to learn. So when we practice loving kindness, we must always remember to apply it to ourselves. This is one of the keys to self-mastery and, ultimately, to our own spiritual victory. And the best part is, YOU can do this starting right now! Tune to THE OPEN DOOR Tuesday at 11:00 a.m. Pacific and 2 p.m. Eastern for more on loving kindness and self-mastery.

Terry Canady, singer/songwriter, was raised in Des Moines, Iowa, and his performing and recording career has spanned nearly five decades. Recording a #1 hit record, “Mama Bear,” in Nashville, Tennessee in the early 1970s was the highlight of his career and eventually led to the creation of his own record and publishing company, Saint Adrian, through which he has produced a number of records and albums, most recently a patriotic CD titled “Give Me Liberty.” He continues to accept narration, commercial and voice-over work from his home in the beautiful Paradise Valley, just a few miles north of Yellowstone National Park.
Thom Schumacher is a copywriter, ex-seminarian, singer, percussionist, talker, plays a mean penny whistle, lyricist, RE broker and, most importantly, a student of the ascended masters. He has been gifted with an exceptional family, survived 3 marathons, navigated some very potent astrology (double Pisces!) and continuously juggles a myriad of creative challenges, not the least of which is hosting The OPEN DOOR. The threads that run through the crazy quilt of his life are love of God, Life, wife, family and gratitude for all the opportunities along the way to learn and grow.
