“Listening is a magnetic and strange thing, a creative force. You can see that when you think how the friends that really listen to us are the ones we move toward, and we want to sit in their radius as though it did us good, like ultraviolet rays.” — Brenda Ueland

not so humbled by gurus and saints and spiritual celebrities as by the AIDS worker, the single mom waitress, the man mentoring a child. not humbled by words, and not personalities, but by actions; the mark we leave on the world
As the past and future exist at the same time and are directly effected by consciousness, and as we are all intimately connected by the energetic web of life, then the past can be changed by actions today.
Let me offer a metaphoric example: According to the Bible, Perhaps I am whipped twenty times in Pilot’s palace 2,000-some years ago.
Perhaps you, today, are able to go deeply into your heart and forgive yourself, or someone who has wronged you greatly. That creates — literally — a wave of Love that resonates forward — and backward — through time, effecting everything it touches.
It even reaches me, in Pilot’s temple, and everyone there is effected — changed — by your act of Love and I am whipped nineteen times.
With the added Love sent from you, in the future, back to me, I am that much stronger and can send more Love forward in time to you. That Love in turn, reaches you and helps you to be yet more loving and forgiving and that, in turn, sends more Love back to me, where I am whipped eighteen times.
And on and on it goes, back and forth, beyond space and time, until one day you wake up, as if from a vivid dream, and are made aware of the story of an old prophet and teacher named Yeshua, who died as an old man in his sleep surrounded by wife and family. And this will be the truth of it. For my mission will have succeeded, through you, in the future, and my death on the cross will not have been necessary. In the past.
Exciting possibilities. Yes?
— Excerpt from The Daughter Seminar.
Whatever we may have been working at earlier isn’t important anymore. The times have changed. We are birthing a new world as the old one collapses. Too much is happening too quickly for us to do anything about it. The Universe and our higher selves have truly taken over. We just have to get out of the way and flow with the river.
“There’s no way I can compete.” That’s true for all of us now: there’s no way we can compete or control anymore. Only surrender. Only show-up. Only be honest with our emotional life. Only let go of guilt and shame and fear and judgment.
Only try to open to joy and play. We do more now to assist the Universe if we simply re-learn how to play, in all things.
Play is how a child — like a new world — is born.
Below are comments from the first audience to witness “The Daughter Seminar”:
“You have written, directed, and produced a bold and courageous piece of theatre. Simple yet subversive, like Christ herself.”
“Unique, thought-provoking, and a great reminder of life’s pure essentials.”
“(I was) prepared to doubt, but found myself unexpectedly moved.”
“A moving experience.”
“(The) actors, dancer and singer blew us all away.”
“Thank you… for writing beautiful, profound words, which provoked me to think and feel.”
“I loved the way metaphysics and The Universe relates to (Yeshua’s) messages”
energy of these (writings) was one of the most loving I have
experienced. I am so grateful. It is hard to express in words the
uplifting and peaceful effect it had on me.”
The Spherical We Productions is pleased to announce a powerful, exciting, original — and controversial — theatre-based, spiritual/metaphysical event developed for global production.
Following in a long line of modern awareness-expanding information such as “Conversations With God,” “The Secret,” and “The Shack,” now comes a new viewpoint on one of the greatest stories ever told.
Created by Bradley Rand Smith, award-winning writer and author of the recently filmed, Obie-winning, Off-Broadway play, “Dalton Trumbo’s ‘Johnny Got His Gun,’” “Daughter” is a surprising, dramatic and joyful journey through the life and ideas of Yeshua ben Joseph (Jesus) as told by three contemporary female actors: “I said I’d return, I didn’t say I’d come back as a man.”
“Daughter” is not a religious polemic and does not subscribe to any one religious/spiritual viewpoint, but embraces a wide spectrum of ideas and philosophies from mystic Christianity, to Buddhism, to Judaism, to Native and Tribal, to metaphysics and quantum physics.
For approximately two hours (with breaks) the audience will be seated comfortably, perhaps on the floor with pillows and blankets, as they listen to Yeshua tell her story and share her thoughts on life, as crowds often did two thousand years ago. Tribal dancing and music will flow through the performance. Throughout will also be demonstrations of simple practices for personal and planetary healing. Afterwards, there will be an open discussion with guest healers regarding what the audience has just heard, the audience’s questions and concerns, and how Yeshua’s life and words and ideas might translate to their own lives today.
Musician/composer Andrew Leist has composed a beautiful score which he will perform with live musicians. Tribal dancing performed by Dr. Debra Savitt and others.
“Daughter” is a stirring, powerful, joyful — and challenging — experience, one which we believe will leave an audience gently questioning their belief systems and perhaps awakening to their individual power; as Yeshua has said: “All that I have done, you shall do and greater things than these.”
