Ep. 3 - Living In A State Of Awareness, Observation, And Discipline - An Interview With Larry Sims

Hearts Rise Up Podcast

In this episode, as he was growing up in the south, Larry had lots of questions around many things in life. Many of the answers he received from others were inadequate in his mind which led to a lot of confusion. The harder he tried to understand, the more questions he had and the answers were never satisfactory. Life was a bit awkward as he was growing up. Having started school a year early, he was smaller than his peers, and a target for bullying. Eventually, he was able to internalize his own sense of self-worth in his musical abilities. He found his calling as a Band and Orchestra Director. It wasn’t until he hit his early 50’s, that he was able to make sense of a lot of things. He learned that it’s never too late to raise your awareness and consciousness. Show Notes:  Listen in to hear Larry’s story, what he learned and how he applies it in his life today. There are many nuggets of wisdom to include: 1.  What you feed grows 2.  How to dispel anger and resentment 3.  Making time to reflect 4.  Egocentricity and transcendence - the Zen of it all 5.  The dynamics of growth through relationships 6.  The power of neutral observation - the downside of going from observation to analysis 7.  Acceptance and patience 8.  Spirit "Body-building" tips - moving from learning to practicing via discipline 9.  Finding what works for you10. Don't ask “Why” - Ask "What is the opportunity for growth?" (Advice from Dr. Steven Hairfield) 11. Resist the urge to control others - a Lilliputian tale Books he recommends: Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself - Joe Dispenza When Everything Changes, Change Everything by Neale Donald Walsch Power vs. Force - Dr. David Hawkins Gulliver's Travels – by Jonathan Swift People who’ve influenced his life: Wayne Dyer Marianne Williamson Dr. Steven Hairfield More Info: Larry was born in Jackson, MS as a post-war baby boomer and into a Christian household via Southern Baptist orthodoxy. Bullied through the early years, he finally found refuge when discovering his musical abilities. After receiving undergrad and graduate degrees in Music Education, taught for 30 years as high school band and orchestra director. Retired from teaching and worked in retail for a decade before fully retiring.

B.W.D - W/ Jamar Rogers + Publicist CJ Carter + Larry Sims

My Fierce Wings Radio

Jamar Rogers entered the world on March 1, 1982 to a single mother in New Orleans. Growing up, Jamar showed tremendous talent for singing as early as six years of age, but soon fell prey to the emotional problems that come with growing up in a fatherless household and became addicted to drugs to fill the missing piece.  As his life began to spiral out of control, the unthinkable happened; Jamar was declared HIV positive. Completely broken, Jamar somehow found the light in the darkest time of his life and began to turn things around. After six years of being clean from crystal meth, Jamar auditioned for The Voice and “the rest is history,” as they say.  Since becoming a finalist on The Voice, Jamar has appeared on popular shows such asThe Today Show, Ellen, CNN, E! Entertainment News, MTV News, HLN’s Showbiz Tonight, USA Today, People Magazine, US Weekly, Billboard, Rolling Stone.com,The Hollywood Reporter, The Huffington Post, POZ Magazine, Popcrush, Sway In The Morning, Positively AwareMagazine and many more!   Currently, Jamar is recording an album set for release this fall and recently dropped a new single on iTunes called “Where Would I Be Without You.”  In addition to recording, he is touring across the country packing out venues, while drawing crowds of all ages with his soulful voice. He is actively working in his community to demystify HIV/AIDS along with doing his best to spread a message of hope and second chances to a generation of young people.
