Addicted to the Light
January 8, 2013
Hosted by Terry Canady and Thom Schumacher
Our world is filled with tests, trials and tribulations that can drive even the strongest among us into the arms of addiction. Those who study such things tell us that addictions – to drugs, food, sex, alcohol, nicotine, sugar or whatever – are really substitutes for the love we may feel lacking in our lives. Perhaps this lack is really an absence of God’s Love and Light. Truth is, God is never absent from us! We are surrounded by a limitless sea of His Presence, and it is up to us to choose to swim in this sea. When we feel ourselves alive, renewed and buoyed up by the currents of God’s Love, we will discover that we naturally prefer the Light. Where negative addictions take our lifeforce, an addiction to Light gives us greater life force. Making the switch may not be easy, but with patience and practice it can be done. It’s also vitally important to understand what forces are arrayed against us as we move closer to the Light. For more, tune in to The OPEN DOOR this Tuesday.

Terry Canady and Thom Schumacher
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.
