In this interview with John Morton, we discuss topics from the coronavirus, transcending fear, the importance of attitude, and how John handles challenging situations in his own life. John is the Spiritual Director of the Movement of Spiritual Inner Awareness, Chancellor of University of Santa Monica, board member of Insight Seminars as well as an author.
Here is John’s blessing from the episode:
“Dear Lord, we welcome Your presence in all the dimensions, especially those that come from the highest consciousness and the highest good. That each one of us is tuned in a very personal way to the divine nature, to our inherently good nature, and we always have the opportunity to let go, which is a way of releasing and trusting that any negativity that is upon us, or we in some way have perpetrated and allowed, can be released, and released at the highest rate, which can be here and now completely.
So we come into the blessing of knowing all things serve good, and have our entire consciousness aligned and attuned so we are maximizing the greatest good, and releasing ourselves from unnecessary choices and whatever we have created in the negative form. That there is mercy, there’s grace, there’s loving that joins us openly, willingly because we have asked. So it’s just a simple process of asking for the greatest blessings, maybe in this moment that just becomes singular. The consciousness of one blessing. One thing in particular that our awareness is upon right now as the blessing. Perhaps it’s simply breathing in and breathing out and understanding that that is being done in some way beyond what we control. So the breath is a gift, a holy gift, it comes into our heart in the core of our being, and it comes to all, regardless of what we’ve done or created, God loves all of its creation. This is the blessing. Baruch Bashan”
I recently had the pleasure to interview someone with absolutely wonderful stories. In this interview with Emmy Award winning actress and all around amazing woman, Leigh Taylor-Young, she tells stories about Steven Spielberg, Ted Turner, John-Roger, John Morton (her husband), Jim Henson, Muktananda and ideas of risk taking, creativity, and confronting the challenges of the world with an uplifting attitude.
In the first episode of 2020, I had the pleasure to interview my friend and productivity guru, David Allen, at his home in Amsterdam. David is one of the premier authorities in the field, and his book, Getting Things Done, is an international bestseller and has been translated into 28 languages. I delve into the philosophical and spiritual underpinnings of David’s method, which is used by some of the most successful individuals and businesses in the world.
In this episode, I share the resources and techniques I’ve been using to create my own Spiritual Intensive program that has been helping me get through some challenging times. At the end of the episode I do a blessing of light for Christmas and the Holidays.
Here are the links from the episode for y’all:

Hi and welcome to Transcend with Nat. This is Nat. I’m your host today and this is the 41st episode. We’ve been going for over 40 now. So thank you to all the listeners out there, all of you who listened, who write in. , it’s really nice to hear from you. And, in case you’re new, you can always go to my website, transcend.online and there’s a contact page there and you can get ahold of me that way. Anyway, I thought just since we’ve been going for awhile now, I had the inspiration to discuss with you what this is all based on. All of these spiritual tools and techniques and things that we bring forward here , and even the purpose and the interviews and everything that this is based on, some key foundational principles that I would just like to share with you since I don’t think we’ve really tapped into that level and, discussed them before.
In this episode, I discuss a higher look at Manifestation and also share an excerpt from John-Roger that was an inspiration for me in designing a short workshop type presentation I’ll be doing this weekend (from J-R’s seminar Cutting Materialistic Attachments & Opening Your Spirit available at MSIA.org). At the end, I share another excerpt from the same seminar on caring for loved ones and friends at the end of their lives.
I am excited to have been invited do a presentation/guided meditation at a Deep Healing Retreat this weekend! I’m going to be doing my part Saturday afternoon 5/25 in Topanga. You can sign up here or contact me if you need more info.
In this episode, I use excerpts from John-Roger’s seminar Accomplishment vs Success (available at msia.org). I talk about the excerpts and my own stories with John-Roger. Like how the seminar titles were chosen, and also how J-R personally taught me to overcome negative emotions such as depression by using one of the tools from the seminar.
In this episode, I tell some stories about my time with my spiritual teacher, John-Roger, and how he demonstrated to me what holding a Light Consciousness can do while working with and listening to others.
In this Christmas time episode, I talk about how each relationship is within us and how it is important how we hold people inside.
