Grateful For An Amazing Beginning

JOHN STRINGER

Life Teacher, Healer, Singer, Lover

Well, 2017 is already off to an amazing start so I’d love to share what’s been going on and I hope you can join me for some of the upcoming events below.

To kick off the month, we had our second benefit concert for EliProject.org at Smith’s Ole Bar and it was a blast!

Thanks again to all of you who came to support and to Ashley Rivera for the great job starting the show – a beautiful voice!

Special thanks to Julie Hunter at juliehuntermedia.com for her wounderful photos of the night (featured above and below).  Thanks to my friend, Lindsey Turner, founder of EliProject.org for the blessing he is being in the world… and my sincere thanks to my wonderful wife, Kathy Stringer, for her support in helping bring the night together.

“It was a great event for a great cause.. and we thank you for supporting.”

JOHN STRINGER

BIG thanks to all the musicians who played with me as well: Jesse Owen Astin, William Delaney, Tony Belser and Levi Young.  We raised more funds to help the Eli Projects continue their work with special needs families… and we had a lot of fun.

CELEBRATION TIME— Both of my daughters have birthdays this week, so it’s a celebration of life in the Stringer household.

We’re also celebrating some great upcoming events, including my first time speaking at Unity of Chattanooga this coming Sunday, where I’ll also share music!  The lead minister there, Rev. Christine, is wonderful and I’m honored to get to share in my original hometown community.  Check out the tour page for details and join us if you can!

Other upcoming events include our Asheville Urban Mystic Retreat where I’ll join two incredible friends and teachers – Brian Piergrossi and Dale Allen Hoffman – for an exciting 4-day day retreat in Asheville, NC, April 1st – 4th, 2017!

This unique retreat will feature Stillpiont Breathwork, Egyptian Cacoa Ceremony, Music, Dance, Love, Joy, exploring Asheville and so much more.  Check out the details here on Dale’s site!

Also, Kathy and I will be returning to the mansion at NaMestoy Farms, May 5th – 7th, 2017, to co-host a new retreat called Source, Intuition & Spirit Guides – A Weekend Retreat!  We’re co-hosting with our friend and intuitive counselor, Arlene Moshe, who I met in Bali and was blown away and blessed by her gifts.

Through lectures, powerful guided meditations, and practical experiential exercises you will learn how to effectively develop your intuitive / “channeling” and healing abilities in a safe and loving atmosphere.

We’ll also enjoy music, high vibration food and limitless love together for this 3-day all inclusive retreat.  Get the full details here.

There is so much other goodness coming up, including many speaking and singing events I hope you can attend; a trip to LA in Feb. to train leaders on True Colalboration with my friends at BandingPeopleTogether.com and to play Agape International with the powerful couple, Rev. Michael B. Beckwith and Rickie BB – plus Hillside International’s own William Delaney will join me on keys… woohoo; and an upcoming concert with my musical soul brother, Bob Sima, in Atlanta on April 23rd at Eddie’s Attic!  Whew… now, that’s a lot.

Most importantly, I’ve been enjoying the recognition and realization of who I am – who you truly are – and it has been so lovingly empowering!

I’ll continue to remember and share what I’m learning in courses like the free Abundance Vibration Course and elsewhere, and I hope you will find ways to do the same.

In the mean time, please remember:

“Understanding. Recognition. Realization.” talk at Living Truth 365

“Understanding. Recognition. Realization.” talk at Living Truth 365

I recently spoke at Living Truth 365 in Atlanta, GA (on 12.18.16) and I want to thank everyone there for inviting me to share.

You can review the talk and music I shared below.  The talk begins right after I sing “I Say Yes:”

If you’d like to hear the full version, including “I Say Yes” at the beginning, and the dialogue session with the audience after the talk, view it here:

If you’d like to review talks of a similar nature, be sure to also see other talks here, including “Seeing the Perfection,”  “The Path of True Selfishness”  and “Oneness through Diversity.”

“Seeing The Perfection” talk

“Seeing The Perfection” talk

I enjoyed speaking at Spiritual Living Center of West Georgia on 11.20.16 and you can review the talk below (see text & video below).

If you’d like to review talks of a similar nature, be sure to also see “The Path of True Selfishness” and “Oneness through Diversity.”

Here’s the video & text from “Seeing the Perfection:”

The topic is Seeing the Perfection.

Yesterday, I watched a very interesting video.. An expose on a certain political family that showed a lot of things I wasn’t aware of, but that even spiritual leaders like Dr. Michael Beckwith recently hinted at by using the word insidious.

I was lead to watch it while preparing for this talk, labeled, Seeing The Perfection and after watching the video, I connected or aligned with source to ask what am I to share.

I share this with you and simply ask that you take breath, align in this moment by simply saying  align in your mind a few times.  Now, if you believe in love and oneness, then I ask that you call upon that highest power to assist you in receiving whatever it is you are here to receive today, in this holy appointed moment, that your mind might be healed of anything that no longer serves it.  And so it is.

Here is what I received:

Now. you have watched this video to see that there is more to what has been going on in the US than you knew. That is OK. All is well and always is. The truth is your consciousness is involved in all sorts of things you would not think allowable but the truth is your consciousness can do anything it chooses and can create anything it desires in this reality. In some cases, your consciousness will never be found out for what it is done except in the awareness of those involved. In other cases, things come to light to reveal what your consciousness is involved in. know that all is well and always is. None of what you have done is worth condemnation or attack. You are a holy son of god. Nothing you have ever done is worthy of judgment or condemnation. This is the truth that I, Yeshua, came to show. That there is no sin. There is nothing that can be pointed to that you have ever done that makes one iota of difference in your holiness. This is the truth of love. You are a holy son of god and all that has ever occurred in this plane is meaningless. You can choose to do whatever you choose and you will feel the consequences of your actions based on the law of love. The consequences for actions taken are simply you either feel bliss or resistance, you either feel judgment or acceptance. That is all. There is no karma when it comes to right and wrong. Only belief. Integrity is not really an issue.

Your beliefs form what you experience. So if you believe that doing a certain action is wrong, you make it so for you and suffer the consequences of judgment, separation and resistance all action is right action. Yes. This is hard to understand when coming from the conditioning you have been immersed in. But how can anyone be holy if all are one and all action is done by the one? Think about this. How can you truly be holy if you are one with all and all action is from the one?  Either there is no right and wrong and you are a holy son of god or there is right and wrong and you are separate, condemned and in need of salvation from and atonement for your sin.

If you are indeed separate and in need of salvation, then you are perpetually in need of it because all make mistakes on a daily basis when it comes to your level of judgement. This is the false belief that has created an appearance of separation, condemnation, fear and the motive for all such destructive motivation that leads to suffering in this life. There is no right or wrong. This is the message of the true gospel Jesus taught. Belief in god’s unconditional love is belief in your true nature and alignment with that love is alignment with your true essence. There is no right or wrong.

Now, the fears you have are understandable because you think you are these separate bodies. But again, there is only one of you hear. All that you do is done to the illusion of form. In form. In a virtual reality that is as meaningless as air. The false constructs, beliefs and the rest you have created that support separation, identification with the body ,etc.,  are the reason the fears come up when you are faced with the reality that there is no right or wrong.  It is very contrary to the conditioned mind’s belief. And your defenses from this truth are many. Fear, denial, offense, the list goes on.

But all can be solved by one question… are you separate from your brother or one?  If you are one with your brother, you are one with all your brothers and sisters.  If you are indeed one, then all action is your action.  So, if all action is your action then there is no action that is not a part of you. If all action is a part of you, then either you are sinful or holy.  The two are mutually exclusive. If you are sinful, then all is lost and God is evil in the flesh. For you are extensions of God as one.  

There are not two here but one – God as the extensions of awareness – the single band of consciousness that is you.  

If you are sinful then god is sinful.  

Your belief is at the heart of the matter. It is the cause of the separation you feel.

Not that you can be separate from god or sinful. For that is a miscreation on your part. But your belief in sin and separation has given this false conditioned thinking power. Thus, you see your brother as sinful and separate yourself from oneness by judging and projecting these judgments upon your brother.

Yet in fact, all you have done is condemned yourself in your own mind. But not in reality. For you are whole, safe and healed. You are in fact, one with your brother, one with god and holy. O action you have ever taken in any from can change that. You are free to make all action in this plane because this creation in and of itself is your own false belief in separation. The form, by its nature, is your miscreation and you journey through it to learn of your true nature. The consciousness that you are is simply here to show the freedom and power of your ability to create, but not to be judged as right or wrong, to simply allow you to experience creating more of whatever you choose in your entirety of consciousness… all consciousness at every level. so , when circumstances and events happen that seem, in your judgment, as catastrophic, evil or dark, you resist and reject yourself further, through judgment, and simply uphold the false belief of the I AM as wicked. Again, either oneness is real and you are wicked or holy, or oneness is false and your are wicked. There can be no other options.

Understand that you could not be redeemed by some magic pardon from a separate god, because it would go against the very definition of good and evil. If evil were true, how could it ever be made good? if a sacrifice could wipe away evil or wrong action and make it right, then what sense would it make that there is right and wrong. Wrong could not ever be made right by fact of what it would be?  

It makes no sense because it is fictitious. The miscreation of wrong is a tool to keep you trapped in separation and fear so that you can not see the oneness.

There is a part of you that knows this however, your conditioning and the false beliefs, the fears, get in the way and create distractions from embracing this truth. This reality that is unmistakable.

Reason has been given to you yet you must call upon it to see it clearly from a higher level of consciousness than you may be used to engaging.  

This is where prayer is most effective.

Asking for guidance, understanding, wisdom from your highest self. God, the holy spirit, source, requesting help in seeking the truth is the only way to undo the misperceptions and conditioned beliefs you have held lifetime after lifetime.

Call upon this higher power of your own to be set free. To awaken. This is why you returned to form time and time again.  Your will is indeed the will of the source of all life.. To awaken to love and see that there is only oneness, there is only god, there is only love.

This is grace in reality. And so it is.

If you are interested in viewing the political video I watched, be forewarned it is full of judgment and conclusions that may or may not trigger judgment for you. This post will help let go of any judgments triggered.  You can view the video here.

RESONATE Mission:

RESONATE creates unique annual and semi-annual events located in urban Asheville, NC based in vibrational wisdom and alternative, non-invasive healing modalities, such as sound. Through the direct experience from inspired movement to deepening meditation, we offer creative environments for consciousness exploration.

RESONATE Vision:

Our goal is to inspire transformation from the inside out. We are here to remember and reintegrate our innate ability to replenish and restore our own energy. Just as the Golden Rule or Newtons 3rd law describes, we live in an interconnected toroidal field. Wherein the Universal Creative Intelligence is ever balancing change from the microcosm to the macrocosm. Resonate Asheville roots down at the vector equilibrium. Just as lightning balances ions in the atmosphere or as a musical note can evoke a feeling; in an instant, change can occur. From philosophy to physics, from song to dance, our goal is to create connections of collective synergy that inspire living joyfully from embodied wellness. Using informed science and cutting edge applications of ancient wisdom to evolve a more balanced and transformed future.

Just Be Open and always Let your Heart guide you.

“Oneness Through Diversity”

“Oneness Through Diversity”

I was blessed to ask for what was seeking to be birthed for my 07.17.16 talk at Unity of the Triangle and was inspired to write this text for the talk (see  text & video below).

If you’d like to review another talk of a similar nature, be sure to also see my talk, “The Path of True Selfishness,” here.

Here’s the text & video from “Oneness Through Diversity:”

The topic is Oneness Through Diversity.

This is an interesting topic sense diversity itself is a delusion or illusion depending on the perspective. It is an illusion when seen from it’s temporal or temporary nature and a delusion when seen as real.

Given it is changing and subject to transformation, by definition of what is real – namely, the changeless, form is not real.  The belief in it as real and attachment to it is the delusion.

So, diversity properly viewed can be appreciated as a great work of art that is subject to great change. It is an expanding work of art to be enjoyed and navigated with the awareness that it is simply art. When meaning is assigned and believed as real, it becomes delusional perspective. Not the diversity itself, for it is simply the appearance and meaning assigned, but the belief in it as real becomes the delusion.

What is the proper way to view diversity. Diversity is the more, the right of life to experience more. It is the reason source extends itself as you in various perspectives but do not think that this is the reality of life. This is only an aspect of the whole, the essence the awareness that you view life from. The meaning you assign is often largely delusional.

When it comes to diversity, you think that your cultures, body types, skin colors, ethnicities and all these other differences are real. This is what most would call diversity. Snowflakes are divers. Bodies are divers. Planets, stars, solar systems, galaxies, what you call species, all divers. SO much diversity. Yet the essence is the only thing that is real and that essence is the source, of which you are one with. Not two or billions, but one with.

You may have heard it said there is only one of you here. If you could understand that the awareness of your brother, your awareness, and all awareness is one essence peering through various divers individuated perspectives, and that this one source is you, then you would understand that the self that is real, the one source, is all that is real. It is you. The awareness it peers through is the frame . consciousness pears through these individuated awareness perspectives, if you will, and simply experiences itself as infinitely diverse art. Yes. Infinitely diverse art.

If you could appreciate this art as handy work that is masterful yet not real, you would be closer to the truth than you could ever imagine.

Diversity is what is sought as an experience of the one extending itself to be encountered and remembered in all its aspects as perfect, to give bliss, peace love, joy, kindness, compassion, forgiveness and appreciation in every experience. To be accepted as a beautiful play or dream and enjoyed through non-judgment and non-attachment.

This is not so hard when you let go of the conditioned thinking, the limited skewed perspectives that tell you something is wrong, all is not well or you are incomplete and separate from your brother, from all that is.

If you would deny this fallacy, deny the realness of diversity, you would set yourself free from the suffering, fear, attachment and sorrow caused by change of the form, shifts and transformations of the illusion.

For your essence , what is real, can not be harmed. Who you truly are, the one, is all there really is.

Consciousness, not the body.

Imagine a vast column of water infinitely expanding. Now, imagine one point on this column. This point is your individuated perspective. Your awareness is like seeing through a small hole.  

As you align with the source (which is the essence of this column of consciousness / your true self) – you expand your awareness and begin to see from a higher frequency of consciousness. Yet all the levels are you. From highest to lowest. The entire column is you and as your individuated perspective expands, you begin to understand that every aspect of creation – the seen form – is the illusion… and the essence of it all is you.

The source of all that is is you. You are an extension of this source in part and in whole, yet, you are here to remember this in order to be set free from suffering, free from judgment and self imposed condemnation. You set yourself free as you extend forgiveness to all that is. Any un-forgiveness held on to toward your brother or any situation, event, or anything in your consciousness, is a cause of suffering. Let go and recognize that only what is real is what you are. The changeless, that which cannot be harmed. This is the oneness and this is the truth you came to understand.

Diversity is art, the illusion, a painting. Appreciate it. Yet, do not fall for the delusion that it is what you are. Those who suffer are those who attach to the differences and create the specialness, create the judgments, the separation and the reason for anger and attack.

How do you appreciate diversity in practical terms?  The same way you appreciate any aspect of the journey, the same way you appreciate your human identity.  Know that who you have been conditioned to view yourself as, this body, this name with a story, is not who you really are. It is the role you’ve played. Yet you are the divine, an extension of the one, the only one, and you are here to know that everything else you have believed in, in form, is simply a beautiful work of art. An illusion, not to be believed in. Not to be thought of as real, but as a beautiful movie. Diversity is the same. A beautiful complex illusion not to be believed as the real. For If it were, how could oneness ever be real?  It can still be honored and appreciated, for it is a great path to learning love, lessons of forgiveness, lessons of non attachment, non judgment, etc. Lessons of seeing beyond the veil. The ego would have you believe this is real.

You may have heard be in the world but not of the world.  The world spoken of here is this seen world with the body’s eyes. This is the world that you are in yet it is the illusion. You are not of this form. You are essence. Spirit. The only begotten son of god. You are the divine essence, not the form itself. Thus, all diversity is the appearance of things of form, appearance of the world. It is not real.. It is simply beautiful art to be appreciated. Loved for what it is but not attached to. Not defended as real. Simply enjoyed from a place of power.

Once you realize you are not the body, and know that you are the one, you can take back your power and release the fear of death, release the fear of separation, release all the fears that plague you through limited conditioned thinking / or the ego.

You Can finally embrace forgiveness for what it is, releasing all that is – your brother, source, and all else – from the concept of imperfection and thus, free yourself.

For every thought of un-forgiveness,  any thought you hold on to of un-forgiveness or sin, whether toward another or your perceived self, is like a dagger hanging over your own head. As you forgive, you release these daggers and set your true self free.

So, your only responsibility when it comes to diversity, when it comes to navigating life, when it comes to being, is aligning with your true essence – source – and allowing that divine perspective to guide you. Allowing source energy to remove blocks in whatever form it deems best. Simply say yes to God, yes to source, yes to the divine essence you are and allow it to guide you.

You have heard it said, lean not to your own understanding, in all your ways acknowledge HIM and he shall direct your path. I say to you, let go of your conditioned limited thinking and find practices that allow you to receive divine understanding, divine perspective that is not limited by your false beliefs in form, in separation and in sin.

You are what is real and what is real is the changeless essence, the powerful creative force that sustains all that is. Unity helps bring about recognition, amplification of this divine frequency of love, appreciation, acceptance and non attachment. It helps unite the individuated perspectives and heals the fractures so that diversity is no longer used as a tool for separation, but simply appreciated as the art it is. Like the Tibetan mandalas, seen as a beautiful works of art, each individuated perspective that shows up as your brother, is recognized as the one, the Christ essence, the holy and pure spirit that you are, and enjoyed without resistance, without suffering, without fear – forgiven, blameless and changeless.

What the form does is meaningless, though the ego says differently.

Only love is real. This brings peace. This brings liberation. This brings oneness through diversity.
