June 2nd episode: Father Scott Elliott, Amma the hugging Saint, Technology and Yoga

June 2nd episode: Father Scott Elliott, Amma the hugging Saint, Technology and Yoga
by Leslie Godbold

This week on Positively Living, Father Scott Elliott joins me to discuss healing, meditation and monasteries. We learn about  Mata Amritanandamayi, “the Hugging Saint”  and Technology aids in rebuilding Jewish history.

Positively Living , amma, Mata Amrtanandamayi, hugging, leslie godbold
Mata “Amma” Amrtanandnmayi – The Hugging Saint

Positively Living Moment: Amma, the healing Saint- Amma “Mother” has hugged millions across the world. She is currently on tour across the United States. Who is she? What is her message? Is she real or fake? You decide!
                                            Technology aids in rebuilding  Jewish History– the Genizah project is part of a growing movement to piece together fragments of the past via technology.

Our Focus on World Topic: On face book this week , we saw a school where parents were in an uproar over yoga classes. The parents and community leaders said practicing this type of yoga was a type of  religious brainwashing. Is Yoga religious or physical training?

Our guest is Father Scott Elliott of New Seeds Priory in Black Mountain NC. Father Elliott enlightens us on new monastic movement, healing, meditation, Celtic spirituality and more.

Is meditation mentioned in the bible? What does Jesus say about it? Is healing by prayer possible?

More about:
Fr. Scott is the Prior of New Seeds Priory… New Seeds Priory is an Inter-Spiritual,  contemplative practice community.  We are a community of Christians walking a spiritual path together that integrates simplicity, mindfulness, meditation, and prayer.  We are a community of inquiry, practice, learning and service.

Our practice is grounded in traditional Christian practices of contemplative prayer and simple monastic life and in the Buddhist practices of mindfulness, meditation, and deep insight. Our community is inclusive, welcoming, and open to anyone seeking a deeper experience of the Divine in their daily lives or in incorporating the Buddhist practices of mindfulness to enrich their practice of being a Christian.

We meet regularly in Black Mountain, NC for a Day-of-Mindful-Practice that includes mindful work, study, prayer, worship and spiritual direction. We also meet weekly for an informal, contemplative Celtic Eucharist on Sundays and a Christian-Zen Buddhist meditation and study group on Thursday evenings. Both weekly gatherings are held at the Prior’s home in Black Mountain, NC.

Sunday May 12th, 2013, Our special guest on Positively Living’s Mother’s Day Episode is Luella Whitmire

Sunday May 12th, 2013, Our special guest on Positively Living’s Mother’s Day Episode is Luella Whitmire

Our Mother’s Day Special Guest was selected for several reasons:

While interviewing a guest, I often ask “Who was a driving force behind your accomplishments”?

One of our previous guest glowed when speaking of the person who made the difference- her Mother! At the end of the interview I asked the guest, if I could meet her Mother. I had to meet the Mother, little did I know the impact of this little woman and how it has been felt by most of Asheville!

May I introduce to you our special guest, Ms. Luella Whitmire

Luella Whitmire is a native of Asheville, the Mother of 3 daughters and 1 son, a community activist and the Pastor at Living Water Ministries located in Asheville NC.

I interviewed Pastor Whitmire over a Month ago but held back the episode because I had to have her as the Mother’s Day focus. She was our choice because of her relationship with her children, her relationship and service for God and His children, and  the difference she has made in our community.

I hope you will join us Sunday May 12th Noon to 1pm to be inspired by Pastor Luella Whitmire. This Mother, Woman, Child of God had to be our Positively Living Mother of the Year on Mother’s Day 2013.

Robert: Positively Living: Adult or Grown Child, Which are you?

Robert: Positively Living: Adult or Grown Child, Which are you?

Positively Living
by Robert Colling

This is my first posting for Positively Living . I wanted to write something witty to brighten your day. But right now I am struggling in keeping my own thoughts in order to even write this; because my blood pressure is extremely high. I’m frustrated. I’m upset with people that don’t care. I’m down right pissed. I get so aggravated with people that treat me like I’m stupid because I don’t know what they know…Has that ever happened to you?

That’s when I have to remind myself,  ‘What is it that differentiates between an Adult and a Grown Child?’ For years I have struggled with this question while interacting with people. I have prayed many times for guidance and understanding. I have watched with open eyes and ears, trying to understand that people God brings into my path for a reason. With this, I have come to the conclusion that there are many Grown Children playing Adult. You are surrounded by them, all in different stages of growing; ranging from extremely polite and quiet to loud and arrogant. Do NOT let them dictate and malign you. You are an Adult. Hold your head high. Listen for the Lord. Understand who and what surrounds you, all while being polite and respectful. Then open your mouth and say something.

Here is only one key difference (out of many) between a Grown Child and an Adult. A Grown Child makes all decisions from what feels good, without regard for other people, Selfish. An Adult makes decisions with a degree of empathy for those in the situation. An Adult will make mistakes, but they learn from them and apologize quickly, while correcting and growing. Where are you?


What I am describing is a small nugget of a walk with Christ. Growing in empathy and understanding is a gift that involves your participation. Be honest with yourself. Allow good people to see and interact with the messy, miserable sides of ourselves. Keep your chin up; God has good things planned for you.


Thank you. This has been therapeutic for me and I hope good for you too.

Robert Colling
