Were the Founding Fathers Divinely Guided?

(from 07-03-12)

Founding-Father-300.jpg

Today we have a special July 4rth edition of Roncar Speaks. This is a segment from last nights broadcast and I felt that there was so much great information that I wanted to make it available to everyone on our list.

The question that started the ball rolling was “Were the founding fathers divinely guided, divinely inspired, or were they themselves elevated souls? “ The answer and the discussion that follows offer fantastic insights into the founding of our nation, our development and a “progress report” on the state of the nation to date. During the course of this discussion, Roncar also offer reasons why we are where we are today and what needs to happen to fix it.

This segment is a little longer than our normal newsletter segments. I left the full discussion in tact because it is all so fascinating and appropriate for today as we celebrate the birth of our nation, and as we contemplate the current changes taking place. This is also not Roncar’s main address for the evening and it is a good sampling of the kinds of discussions we have with Roncar during a typical Circle session.

I know that many of you will not look at emails until tomorrow, after the picnics, social events and the fireworks are over; but if you are interested in what makes this country so special, this is a metaphysical history lesson you will not want to miss. For your convenience you can download the audio file from the 'download" button in the audio player below.

We wish you a very happy July 4rth!

The Value of Being Trustworthy

Posted by roncarspeaks on 14th January 2012

AUDIO UPDATE NEWSLETTER - VOL 006

The Value of Being Trustworthy (from 01-10-12)

This week Roncar continues with the review of his assignment to all of us several weeks again when he asked us to write down a list the qualities that we would wish others to see in us. In order for others to see those qualities, obviously first we would have to BE those qualities.

When Roncar began his address this week, I had two thoughts. The first was that this was so elementary, how would anyone find this to be of interest?  Doesn’t everyone already know this? And then as he continued to speak I recalled some of the formative influences from my youth that helped to shape the values that I carry with me today.

When I was a youth in the Boy Scouts, one of the first things we had to learn was the “Scout Oath” and the “Boy Scout Law.”  I know this sounds a bit “hokey” but these were a list of positive attributes that we had to recite at the beginning of each meeting.  In order to receive our “Tenderfoot” badge we had to memorize them and give an explanation of what each of these attributes meant.

I have no idea if it is the same way today, but I do know that the Scout Oath and the Scout Law was something than ran through my mind all the time because I had to recite them out loud every week along with all of my other fellow troop members. It definitely had a good effect no matter how corny it might have seemed at the time. (Just in case you’re interested I have the Scout Oath and the Scout Law at the bottom of this page)

So in that light, Roncar is asking us to create our own list of values and characteristics that we want to emulate in our life.  Just before the Holiday break we introduced the topic of Integrity (see VOL 3) as well as "The Groundrules of Love." (see Vol 4)

In this week Roncar explores the value of being Trustworthy. While this is something we take for granted, I do urge you to listen to this short segment, perhaps even twice. On the surface it seems do simple, yet when you really listen, the value of this attribute for your own benefit as well as for the rest of the world, makes a very simple truth become a very powerful tool for living a successful life.

Honesty and trustworthiness have many levels and many ramifications. It is the basis for all successful relationships between individuals and on a larger scale between companies and even nations. It is incumbent upon each of us to demonstrate the value of being trustworthy in every aspect of our life. Once again it is our opportunity to change the World via our own will and action for it is our ripple that floats through the rest of the pond and has its influence felt throughout.

Thank you for your continued interest in the teachings of Roncar. We look forward to exploring and uncovering the truth that lies before our eyes and between our ears

Happy Listening!

Warm Regards, Robert Victor,  Editor

The Ground Rules of Love

Posted by roncarspeaks on 17th December 2011

AUDIO UPDATE NEWSLETTER - VOL 004

The Ground Rules of Love (from 12-13-11)

As we continue our discussion of the spiritually oriented person, the topic of Love has emerged as core element.

Are you a loving person?  The answer is, "Of Course."  We are all loving to one degree or another, but what I take away from this discussion is that the way in which your loving nature expresses itself is an indication of your maturity as a loving person. Or another way to say it is that your ability to love is a reflection of your own Spiritual journey and growth. It never ends and always has the upside potential for improvement.

In this holiday season, love is at the heart and core of all of our celebrations. No matter what religion or belief system you might embrace, the concept and practice of love is at the root of spiritual development.  Peace on Earth, Good Will toward men, Shalom. The message of love is interlaced in our holidays from the most common hallmarks of the season to our most intimate beliefs about the meaning and purpose of our life.

The practice of Love within the context of spiritual development is a very large topic and encompasses more than meets the eye at first glance. With this segment Roncar skillfully reflects upon the many characteristics of the loving person and why Love is at the heart of spiritual development. Judgment, tolerance, acceptance, generosity, kindness, forgiveness as well as the importance of self love are all reviewed in a perspective that is both complete and uplifting.

In this time of celebration with family and fiends, with those who are the closest to you, this little excerpt may greatly enhance  your ability to receive the benefits of the love that you receive and give in this holiday season.

Is Giving Love Easier than Accepting Love?

Posted by roncarspeaks on 17th December 2011

HAVE A QUESTION, GET AN ANSWER

Is Giving Love Easier than Accepting Love? (from 12-13-11)

A great question in line with our topic from our loyal Cirlce participant, Joyce. The answer offers insight into why some of us might have more difficulty receiving rather than giving. It also offers a helpful perspective on the loving act of receiving, a very appropriate perspective for this holiday season.

Integrity, the Basis of Spiritual Development

Posted by roncarspeaks on 10th December 2011

AUDIO UPDATE NEWSLETTER - VOL 003

Integrity, the Basis of Spiritual Development

excerpt from 12-06-11

It seems like Roncar will be exploring the subject of Spiritual Development over the next few sessions and that last week’s address was a precursor. Roncar has introduced the topic of Integrity as the first step on the path of Spiritual Development.

How often does the topic of integrity come up in today’s’ world? Unfortunately it seems to arise in the news all too often to point out the lack of it amongst our leaders both in business and in government. How many movies or TV shows have moral lessons woven into their plots that might inspire you to be a better person, or encourage you to reach for the higher ground in your everyday life? The answer is far too few.

Our integrity, or our personal code of ethics, pervades virtually every aspect of our life from the way we take care of ourselves to the way we treat others. The person with integrity considers the results of his words and actions and the effects they will have on the self and others. These considerations are at the essence of the spiritually oriented person.

Roncar has the ability to take this simple concept and expand its scope in a way that will inspire you to embrace the importance of these concepts in your ever day life. (In fact, this is the first time I can remember Roncar giving us a homework assignment that will be addressed in the next session.)

He summarizes: “And so, our lesson for this week in Spiritual Development is to first be true to yourself. Consider the importance of you. Know that the actions you take in every day to preserve your own being, to assure your good health, to contribute to the welfare of the world, are part of the steps of Spiritual Development. This is the basis. And I would like each of you to consider all the other attributes you would like to find within yourself, and that you would like others to see within you.”
