Inspirational Quotes: Della Reese

“….Stumbling blocks become stepping stones that elevate you….”

Rev. Dr. Della Reese-Lett

Since, I’ve unplugged the television – except for one or two shows and other non-productive media –  I have been listening to podcasts and watching videos from people who have shaped lives and lifestyles I admire and aspire to.  The one thing that stands out for me is how they adopt a specific mentality that they use to move fluidly through life.

These people aren’t experiencing a utopia alternate universe or being carried on angel’s wings, but they have great expectations and act accordingly. Ever since I discovered the Hello, Rev. Della Speaking podcasts on Unity FM I have made them a weekly ritual. Often, I listen to a single podcast several times. One to take notes, one to listen to while I sleep, one to reinforce the teaching, one to test how I’ve incorporated it and one to enjoy it again after some time has passed.

Rev. Della has discussed how “God is living intelligence” and how “Faith is an active power with an unlimited supply” and why we should “Stop stockpiling mistakes”. She urges us to not bury our talents and to not be concerned about other people’s judgment. She encourages us to be meek (able to learn) but NOT weak! I LOVE IT!!!!

I am so grateful for the wisdom she shares without ever coming across as preachy.  She espouses creating a spiritual practice not blindly following a man-made religious doctrine. I feel as if the encouragement she offers along with its practical application has and will continue to have a profound impact on my life. Yes, I do feel as if she’s speaking to me personally. It’s grandma’s kitchen wisdom dispensed with love.  It all starts in our heads: what we think and why.

This is also a powerful example of how we can take control of our lives to elevate ourselves. Which is the purpose of this forum. I hope you find this as yet another useful tool at your disposal for your 360 Degree Life. I urge you to listen and become all that you already are.

I leave you in light and beauty with a musical treasure by Emiliana Torrini titled Birds.

    Good. Hey you're up late!

    I just realized you meant you've never downloaded a podcast before..evah?! Ok..I want to tease you but I'll be kind. Girl..it's 2011!!! Okay…leaving you alone now. When you select the "Get All" feature you'll see a spinning disc that goes from gray to orange I believe and it will display all episodes as they are processed. Depending on the speed of your connection that may take some time, so you might want to do it show by show instead. Hope that helps.

    I have always enjoyed Della's straight forward talks. And, that is what we need to hear the honest truth.

    Let us know what you think. I'd still begin with the Maya Angelou Faith episode. That was one for the record books…

    Thanks for this. I'm a bit slow on trends and, therefore, never listened to or downloaded a podcast before. I know, I know. 😐 Gonna look this series up and get to it. I feel like I'm having a breakthrough of sorts -- not sure why or what about but I feel it -- and this may help me.
