Podcast: Episode 32: This Age of Chivalry with Bill Protzmann

Journeys Into Enlightenment with Janet Podcast Logo

This podcast series focuses on the intersection of Consciousness and Self. This is our “Journey into Enlightenment.” At the core of human reality is Consciousness. Humans are self-defining creatures. We develop rule sets and stories that generate our experiences of reality. Consciousness is the state of awareness in each of us where our self-defined realities are only one of the many options in potential that could be expressed.

Each episode you will join Janet and her friends to gather in this core in Heart Centered Awareness. You will feel this state where time and space are malleable, potential is active and change in our day to day experiences can be felt in the moment. You will witness this sharing in the expansive variety of expressions of Consciousness, and as form and language in our physical and non-physical worlds. Experience new definitions in Self and join in the collective community we call Consciousness.

We have been witnessing the qualities that Chivalry encompasses under stress socially. Courage, honor, courtesy, justice and a readiness to help the weak are important social foundations. Joining Janet is Bill Protzmann of Music Care Inc., who offers transformational healing music awareness to military veterans and others. Together they will consider the stresses and graces upon those who embrace Chivalry as their cornerstones in BEing alive.

The Four Agreements: A Practical Guide to Personal Freedom (A Toltec Wisdom Book) by Don Miguel Ruiz

The origins of God Bless America by Irving Berlin at Bill and his friend demonstrated being present. They heard a song in terms of current gender awareness. When it was written almost 100 years ago Irving Berlin was writing an anthem for the country to rally around, and a love letter to a country that accepted him as an immigrant boy. His lyrics reflected his times.

To explore Chivalry in modern relationships between men and women, Bill wrote a wonderful article for YourTango called 7 Charming Ways To Be More Chivalrous — For Deeper, More Authentic Relationships.

“You cannot have a proud and chivalrous spirit if your conduct is mean and paltry; for whatever a man's actions are, such must be his spirit.“
“He who defends with love will be secure. Heaven will save him and protect him with love.“

Focus: Meditations by Tom BarrettYin Yang symbol representing the balance meditation brings

There are many elements to Chivalry. Perhaps at core is Love expressed as Kindness. This episode we feature “Kindness, Anyone?“ From the meditation archive at Interlude: An Internet Retreat.
