Overcoming Shame and Smallness
May 26, 2015
Hosted by Jim Stacey
What are the sources of shame for humans? What voices in your past spoke words and tones of shame and guilt? Who says you are "bad?" The control freaks of today enjoy shaming and blaming others. That's because they are full of the very shame that they want to put on you. Feeling small and shamed is the prison from which you can set yourself free. The truth is that any voice of "shame" comes out of a person who has also been shamed. They still feel that shame and they need to pass it on. No one can get rid of shame by shaming others--not parents, nor preachers, authors, politicians, bosses or any rule-maker. Those who need to make rules for others are many times the ones who need those rules for themselves, but instead they use you and me as their "scapegoats" (those on whom they put blame) so they'll feel better about their own smallness. We can use every challenge to take two steps forward!
Beyond Religion: Your Life is Waiting

Our show is designed to contribute to the healing of those wounded by dogma and shame. I know the beauty and power of the Aramaic language and I’ll share that in the context of sharing with you that your life is your choice and that you can live above smallness and shame. I’ll help you learn how to say goodbye to the old victim energies, and how to awaken to your hidden destiny. You’ll learn how to understand your own “shadow” self and at the same time say goodbye to guilt and remorse. To celebrate all one’s mistakes and learn valuable insights from them is tantamount to claiming your deeper life purpose and giving birth to your most beautiful self. To live in the energy of gratitude and unconditional love makes it possible to let go of all that causes pain and suffering and see the gifts in all that has stifled us in victim energies. To help and support you in knowing of and learning to experience the energy of The Divine within you is my goal. In that there is no fear whatsoever.
From time to time a voice comes upon the scene of the human drama and asks questions that are destined to shape anew the way people think, how they live, and what they value. Such a voice is that of Jim Stacey, author of Jesus Was Not A Christian, and ten other books about the Spiritual Adventures of being human. In his first book he dares to call into question what Christianity has been teaching for over 1700 years.
Today, Jim speaks boldly and passionately about the healing deeply needed by humanity. Jim began his doctoral pursuit with a study of the Aramaic language, Jesus’ native tongue. He has been studying the meanings and applications of the Aramaic for fifteen years. Jim delivers a non-religious message of healing, loving, choosing our own destiny, and transforming our human shadow, which is the message from the lost Jesus who said "the kingdom of heaven is WITHIN you."
As a former Christian minister, college professor and businessman, Jim now writes to inspire people to go deeper in their search for knowledge, wisdom and the meaning of their own path in life.
Jim has been honored with the Golden Quill Award from the National Academy of Best Selling Authors. Jim is currently the author of eleven books. To know our Divinity, experience it deep within, and walk together in Love is the essence of the dawning new era. The key to loving all others is to first experience The Divine within ourselves.
