Our minds have an innate awareness of events past, present and future and we can psychologically live in any one of those “time” zones.

Can AWE expand our perception of time?


“Citizenship in a Republic”, which, among some, would come to be known as “The Man in the Arena.”
Roosevelt railed against cynics who looked down at men who were trying to make the world a better place. “The poorest way to face life is to face it with a sneer,” he said. “A cynical habit of thought and speech, a readiness to criticize work which the critic himself never tries to perform... Then he delivered this inspirational and impassioned message that drew huge applause:

The speech was a wild success. According to Morris—who calls it “one of [Roosevelt’s] greatest rhetorical triumphs”—“Citizenship in a Republic” ran in the Journal des Debats as a Sunday supplement, got sent to the teachers of France by Le Temps, was printed by Librairie Hachette on Japanese vellum, was turned into into a pocket book that sold 5000 copies in five days, and was translated across Europe.’”

From a Blog post by a Listener;

“Just about this time last year, I was discouraged, frightened, disappointed in, and times angry with, myself and my seeming inability to ‘fix’ things.

Literally everything seemed to go ‘wrong’ all at once. Although, in truth, my life had been building in that direction for quite a long time. I just kept applying patches and band-aids and moving forward – or so I thought.

In the midst of the darkest time, I found the following on the net ‘For the Rest of My Life by Donald Gordon Carty’ – and began listening to it every night. It was both lullaby and my nightly prayer ritual – and the only way I could fall asleep.

One morning I realized I had ‘forgotten’ to listen to it – and in that moment I knew the storm had passed – and I was gonna be just fine.” Much Love. - SATSUMA

Combining an atmospheric & ethereal blend of musical ambiance, "On Talking and On Friendship" offers a plethora of data for the soul in it’s infinite journey.

The meditations & spoken word inspiration of D.G.C. are a wonder-send to all who sample his beatific & spiritual art. Donald's art & prose speak in a spirit of self empowerment & love. Take a moment & let the power of his work draw you into a new reality.


Letting Go by Donald Gordon Carty - Letting go is simply making a choice, to no longer allow the beliefs and attitudes that prevent us from experiencing the joy of the moment, to continue to have their grip on our feelings and behaviours and to imprison our thoughts.

Shift Happens Series with Donald Gordon Carty - "Changing your perspective is a matter of choice"

Perspective is part of what makes us human - it can always be changed, shifted, adjusted as new information comes in or as we make new choices.

Choice is perhaps the most powerful concept available to anyone interested in making changes in their life.

This idea of perspective, of choice, can be applied to our lives in a myriad of ways. In this new series we will explore some of the ways in which Shift Happens.
