Greetings!

Tired of trying to fit into society's mold of religion? Following someone else's path to spiritual enlightenment? Efforts to do this have left most of us feeling like we are sitting alone in the dark. The Weekly Eureka invites you to flip on a light switch - ask the questions - question the answers and join others on the journey to the most important discovery of all - that of your true self.

HANDLING SUCCESS 
D.E. PAULK
Handling Success

There are thousands of books devoted to the subject "How to Handle Failure," but very few discussions about how to handle success. Here are a few suggestions for maintaining your equilibrium in the face of success.

 

1) Learn to wear both people's praise and criticism like a loose garment. Learn to listen to both, take from it what you can in the moment, but then let it roll off your back and not effect who you are at your center.

 

A good rule of thumb to remember about both (praise and criticism) is that some of it is always touching you, but all of it is never touching you. Use Jesus as your example as he masterfully, yet humbly dealt with both the extreme praise of a woman washing his feet and the extreme harshness of being sentenced to death by His own people. Through it all, He never lost His focus. The very same people who cried "Hosanna", later cried "Crucify Him!" He allowed neither to deter Him from His life's mission. If you lean too heavily on people's praise you will too easily buckle under their disapproval.

 

2) Be spiritual, but never forget your humanity. I find it an interesting phenomenon that of the many ministers I know, those who occasionally allow themselves to be "human" in public have far less dysfunction in private.

 

Although we are Spirit, we still live in the physical realm and it is our job to learn how to navigate between the two worlds.

 

3) Never forget where you've come from. We all wear different hats from time to time. We show different faces in different capacities. We have a work face, a church face, a family face, a friend face. Some of that is necessary, but in the end, we must take off all the masks we wear and the disguises we hide behind and remember who we are at our core. We came from God. We didn't create ourselves. Even when we reach a pinnacle of success, we should never forget it was God who gave us the power to get ourselves out of the pit.

I Don't Know...The Way of Knowing 

by D.E. Paulk

 

I Don't Know is the required confession needed to be granted admission to the path of enlightenment and to The Way of Knowing. I Know is conclusive, ending, finite and therefore devastating. I Know is an enemy of immortality and nemesis to The Way of Knowing. We are all infinite spirits and the offspring of the Infinite Creator. When we discover the I Don't Know within we unleash our Infinite nature and unearth the Endless Us! Are you ready to put on immortality?

All Truth flows to us from One Divine River . From that One River many wells form and are fed. We might call these wells religions, cultures or philosophies. All wells sustained by the One River contain beauty and truth. However, we make a grave mistake when we declare any particular well as being the One River. I Don't Know dissolves religious division, bridges cultural chasms and dodges philosophical divorce originating from the I Know. I Don't Know is the Repairer of the Breach. In a day when the I Know is to be charged with so much human suffering - I Don't Know shines brightly as an ancient idea whose time has come of age.  $20 ($30 for two)

The Holy Bible of Inclusion

by D.E. Paulk

 

If you are like me you have struggled to accept the modern Christian church's portrayal (or betrayal) of God, depiction of the devil and description of hell. Many god-fearing people and good-hearted preachers alike have long harbored unspoken thoughts of a more loving, merciful and masterful Creator. However, just about as many who subscribe to this grander vision and version of God also admittedly and even ashamedly lack the ability to reference the Bible and specific passages of scripture in order to publicly validate these privately held higher concepts of God.

 

If you are looking for chapter and verse that will both quickly and completely rescue a big God from the smallness of fundamentalism,THE HOLY BIBLE OF INCLUSION is precisely the tool you need!

 

THE HOLY BIBLE OF INCLUSION will scripturally, extensively and even exhaustively confront theological myths, misrepresentations and mistranslations of the Bible and its Origins - Universal Salvation - the devil - the Purpose of hell and the Fire of God - Sexual Orientation and many others. Join me on this worthwhile and rewarding spiritual journey as we research, rethink, recover and then re-present the awesome and awe-inspiring God of the universe.  $20 ($30 for two)   

 

Until next week, remember... Truth is a Journey - Not a Destination!

 

Pro-Love,
