Episode Description

The Sanskrit word for it is shaktipata, and it means “bestowing the energy” or “lighting the lamp.” In Buddhism, we learn from the Udâna of “an unborn, an unbecome, an unmade, an uncompounded” which provides us an escape from all that is “born, become, made and compounded.” From there we can learn that to the Buddhist, perhaps grace is transcendence. In the Christian faith it is more or less defined as the unearned mercy and love of the divine. I love the Sanskrit definition because it gives us a working image. Grace allows room for the soul to have a say in our lives. It gives us a sense of life that runs deeper than that sense of it we get from the stories we tell of our lives, our suffering and our victories. Somehow, from somewhere comes this lighting of the lamp, this bestowing of energy and we are alive, if even for a moment, in a whole new way. What does this mean? And is there a way to access this “it” more readily? Want to know more? Don’t miss this show.

Your Authentic Self is wise, knows the highest path for your life and has never been wounded. That’s right. You have a part of you that has never been wounded. In fact, that part is the truest essence of who you are. Would you like to access it? Do you know how to use your own internal guidance system? Would you like to have peace? How about a more meaningful life? Your authenticity can give you these seemingly miraculous gifts—but you have to know how to get there. Authentic Living with Andrea Mathews will help you raise your consciousness to the level of your own I AM by interviewing some of the great spiritual experts of today. You’ll learn how to see your true self in the midst of life’s twists and turns and be challenged to think outside the box when it comes to the mysteries of life. Can you afford to miss even one of these shows? Authentic Living airs live Wednesdays at 1 PM Pacific on the VoiceAmerica Empowerment Channel.
