Overcoming Disrespect

  • Most of us sense that real tolerance of other people's shortcomings and viewpoints and a respect for their opinions are attitudes which make us more useful to others.
  • Though ex-drinkers, we still thought we had to hide from public distrust and contempt.


  • I could almost hear the sound of the preacher's voice as I sat, on still Sundays, way over there on the hillside; there was that proffered temperance pledge I never signed; my grandfather's good natured contempt of some church folk and their doings; his insistence that the spheres really had their music; but his denial of the preacher's right to tell him how he must listen; his fearlessness as he spoke of these things just before he died; these recollections welled up from the past.


  • "There is a principle which is a bar against all information, which is proof against all arguments and which cannot fail to keep a man in everlasting ignorance -- that principle is contempt prior to investigation." -- Herbert Spencer

About the Podcast

In This Moment with Toby C
ITM
In This Moment w/ Toby C. is a "concept" show.
The "concept" is for the suffering listener to imagine themselves getting better....
How?... By imagining themselves paying attention to another suffering soul - and firing up the other person's imagination - that they too, will get better. That "this too shall pass." This is a concept show that enables the listener / sufferer to get better through the imagination. The imagination is a first cousin of something called faith. This faith / imagination is a portal through which the sufferer, through the power of the open mind, can begin a journey to move away from destructive self-consciousness and closer toward the healing power of God-consciousness. The final concept of this show is that the listener / sufferer will change their "message" - from the insanity of the head to the serenity of the heart.. How? .... Through sponsorship.... listen... every show has a subliminal message from God... Keep an open mind and let Him in! God Bless and happy healing!!
