Andrew Chirch is an Interfaith professional bringing spiritual wisdom to bear on everyday business and life.
Host Andrew Chirch is an Interfaith minister and spiritual guide for real people like you. The idea for 99 comes from the Islamic teaching that there are 99 names for the divine, and each one has its own meaning.   Each week, we meet up for 9-minutes to explore teachings from ALL the world’s religions to help us make sense of our lives.  ************* From this episode: "...even in the midst of despair, with this key, we can awaken to love and ecstasy. What's that about? Love and ecstasy? I gotta admit that those aren't words I use very often... and in the midst of despair? Come on. But what if that really is what it's all about? Being able to expand ourselves - to stretch our own beings enough to be able to hold those two extremes at the same time. Love - even the ecstasy kind of love, right their with despair. At.The.Same.Time." ************** Prolificate.com is about people & ideas that illuminate the world. Find me on Twitter or Instagram @Prolificate or send me an email at awchirch@prolificate.com
What happens when the prospect of death - our own and the people we care about - is suddenly not so abstract? What does constructive contemplation of mortality look like… in the middle of a pandemic?

An example: “Why did this bad thing happen to me?” or “why is this innocent person suffering so much?” You might hear “oh they didn’t lead a good enough life – or they’re being punished for this or that.” I think that’s just plain wrongheaded. Even more, I think it’s a lazy or cowardly way to hide from the difficult truths that find us – all of us – at one time or another as human beings. Let's explore this a little, shall we? ************** Prolificate.com is about people & ideas that illuminate the world.

Learn how to say WTF? (Wasn't That Fascinating?) as a tool to tap in to this inner guidance. ************** Prolificate.com is about people & ideas that illuminate the world.
