Eric Butterworth wrote: “There is magic in the power of praise. But, what is praise, anyway? We speak of 'praise' and 'flattery' as if the terms were synonymous, which they certainly are not. On the contrary, they are complete opposites.” Listen as Eric shares his perspective on the meaning and power of genuine praise.

Eric Butterworth said that one of the great errors to be unlearned is that prayer is a prescribed ritual. Prayer, Eric says, is conditioning our lives. It is “giving way to the consciousness of God.” Listen as Eric explains how to restore our Divine connection by “giving way.”

Self-awareness, Eric Butterworth tells us, can only come through an inner awareness of the Divine flow. Meditation, Eric says, comes about naturally when we are sincere and open to the Wholeness that God is. Listen as Eric tells us why he prefers the term Silence rather than meditation as a way of describing how we “enter into our inner chamber and close the door.”

Eric Butterworth believed that spiritual marriage takes place first within the individual, as s/he learns to fully accept and express the wholeness of his/her male and female natures. The marriage of two spiritually awakened souls can become a constantly unfolding experience that grows richer through the years. Listen as Tom and his guest, Joanna Saliani, discuss Eric’s views and consider their ongoing relevance in today’s world.
