By Jim Swilley
About this podcast
"METRON" is an innovative spiritual movement that originated from the ministry of (Bishop) Jim Swilley in the summer of 2014, which brings together the best elements of CHURCH IN THE NOW ("Real People Experiencing the Real God in the Real World"), and connects them with other schools of thought which are of interest to modern spiritual seekers, such as Quantum Physics, The Law(s) of Attraction, Motivational Speaking, and other spiritually relevant concepts...think of the events as sort of 'Ted Talks' meets spirituality...

the METRON Community connects every day online at www.metroncommunity.blogspot.com and
at www.youtube.com/bishinthenow, and
physically meets every Sunday at 11 AM at Landmark's Midtown Art Cinema in the Midtown Promenade, 931 Monroe Drive in beautiful and historic Midtown Atlanta...30308

I – “And God saw everything that He had made, and behold, it was very good (suitable, pleasant) and He approved it completely. And there was evening and there was morning, a sixth day.” (Genesis 1:31 – AMPC) __________ II – RETROSPECT: a review of or meditation on past events; contemplation of the past; a survey of past time, events, etc. __________ III – “You make PEACE with your past by owning your PIECE of the past.” — Andy Stanley __________ IV – “I accept everything that ever has been, with no regrets, no resentments, and no call for vengeance.” – Jonathan Lockwood Huie _________ V – “In life you find pleasure. In life you find pain. Pain and pleasure is an example of the duality in life. Enjoy them both, they are part of the ride. The key is to not turn the pain into something else – regret.” ― J.R. Rim __________ VI – “Have no regrets in life because of the choices you make. Good or bad, they are a learning experience, to help you grow. The only regret in life, is to never make a choice at all.” ― James Hauenstein __________ VII – “What does it mean to embrace your reality? It means that you accept what is. It means you know who you are, where you are and what you want. It means you recognize that the only one who can make you happy is you. The only one who can change your life is you. That blame and anger only serve to defeat you, not the person you blame and have anger toward. Acknowledging your reality equates to having self-awareness. It is a big part of happiness because when you lack it, you are fighting against where you actually are in your life. You have to own your situation, because when you don’t, you cannot make effective change. And then you have to embrace it. The difference is important. Acknowledging your reality allows you to understand, embracing gives you the power to change.” – Elizabeth Denham

Put into practice what you learned from me, what you heard and saw and realized. Do that, and God, who makes everything work together, will work you into his most excellent harmonies.” (Philippians 4:8, 9 – The Message) II – “Change your conception of yourself and you will automatically change the world in which you live. Do not try to change people; they are only messengers telling you who you are. Revalue yourself and they will confirm the change.” ― Neville Goddard III – Next Level Thinking 1) A level of thinking gained from, but not limited to: psychedelic drugs, dreaming, near death experiences, or an epiphany of any sort. 2) A level of greater thinking which includes, but not limited to: psychic visions, ability to lucidly dream, and in extreme cases, possibly physically altering something with ones mind. 3) A better overall understanding of the universe and existence itself. ―The Urban Dictionary IV – “Man fails to do the works of Jesus Christ because he attempts to accomplish them from his present level of consciousness. You will never transcend your present accomplishments through sacrifice and struggle. Your present level of consciousness will only be transcended as you drop the present state and rise to a higher level. You rise to a higher level of consciousness by taking your attention away from your present limitations and placing it upon that which you desire to be. Do not attempt this in day-dreaming or wishful thinking but in a positive manner. Claim yourself to be the thing desired. I AM that; no sacrifice, no diet, no human tricks. All that is asked of you is to accept your desire. If you dare claim it, you will express it.” ― Neville Goddard V – “It is certainly true…the person habitually trusting and progressively believing into Me, the works (actions; deeds) which I Myself am constantly doing (habitually performing; progressively making, constructing, creating, forming) that one also will proceed doing (performing; making; creating), and he will progressively be doing greater than these, because I Myself am progressively journeying (traveling; going from this place to another) toward (or: facing) the Father.” (John 14:12 – JMNT) VI – “Every next level of your life will demand a different you.” ― Anonymous VII – “If you can’t fly, then run. If you can’t run, then walk. If you can’t walk, then crawl. But whatever you do, you have to keep moving forward.” ― Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

[He was appointed our father] in the sight of God in Whom he believed, Who gives life to the dead and speaks of the nonexistent things that [He has foretold and promised] as if they [already] existed.” (Romans 4:17 – AMPC) IV – “…the One continuously (habitually; or: repeatedly; periodically) making the dead ones alive, and (or: even) continuously calling (or: repeatedly and habitually summoning) the things not existing as existing (or: = not being into continuously being)” (Romans 4:17 – JMNT) V – “Everyone tells a story about who they are in their own head. That story defines you, dictating all your actions and all your mistakes. If your own story is filled with guilt and fear and self-hatred, life can look pretty miserable. But, if you’re very lucky, you might have a person who tells you a better story, one that takes up residence in your soul, speaking louder than the woeful tale of which you’ve convinced yourself. If you let it speak loudly within your heart, it becomes your passion and your purpose. And this is a good thing, the best of things. Because it is the very definition of love, nothing less.” ― Mia Sheridan VI – “SENSES, APPEARANCE, ESSENCE and EXISTENCE The world we see with our senses is very different than the world we see through our essence. Our senses perceive the world of appearance. Our essence perceives the deeper layers of existence. The first step of perceiving the world of essence is to have no goal other than to understand. “Understanding” has to be the ultimate goal. Only then, can we solve the problems.” ― Petek Kabakci VII – “…the “Mind of God,” which Einstein wrote eloquently about, is cosmic music resonating throughout hyperspace.” ― Michio Kaku, Parallel Worlds: A Journey Through Creation, Higher Dimensions, and the Future of the Cosmos

‘MY GROWN UP CHRISTMAS LIST: Creating Miracles by Perceiving Your World as it Could Be’ Part II   I – “Now Jericho was securely shut up because of the children of Israel; none went out, and none came in. And the Lord said to Joshua: “SEE! I have given Jericho into your hand, its king, and the mighty men of valor.” (Joshua 6:1, 2 – NKJV) __________ II – “Early in the morning a servant of the Holy Man got up and went out. Surprise! Horses and chariots surrounding the city! The young man exclaimed, “Oh, master! What shall we do?” He said, “Don’t worry about it—there are more on our side than on their side.” Then Elisha prayed, “O GOD, OPEN HIS EYES AND LET HIM SEE.”The eyes of the young man were opened and he saw. A wonder! The whole mountainside full of horses and chariots of fire surrounding Elisha!” (2 Kings 6:15-17 – The Message) __________ III – “Since we consider and look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen; for the things that are visible are temporal (brief and fleeting), but the things that are invisible are deathless and everlasting.” (2 Corinthians 4:18 – AMPC) __________ IV – “Every Who down in Whoville, the tall and the small, Was singing! Without any presents at all! He HADN’T stopped Christmas from coming! IT CAME! Somehow or other, it came just the same! And the Grinch, with his grinch-feet ice-cold in the snow, Stood puzzling and puzzling: “How could it be so?” “It came with out ribbons! It came without tags!” “It came without packages, boxes or bags!” And he puzzled three hours, till his puzzler was sore. Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn’t before! “Maybe Christmas,” he thought, “doesn’t come from a store.” “Maybe Christmas…perhaps…means a little bit more!” And what happened then? Well…in Whoville they say, That the Grinch’s small heart Grew three sizes that day! And the minute his heart didn’t feel quite so tight, He whizzed with his load through the bright morning light, And he brought back the toys! And the food for the feast! And he, HE HIMSELF! The Grinch carved the roast beast!” (How the Grinch Stole Christmas) __________ V – “Because one believes in oneself, one doesn’t try to convince others. Because one is content with oneself, one doesn’t need others’ approval. Because one accepts oneself, the whole world accepts him or her.” ― Lao Tzu __________ VI – “The outer world is a reflection of the inner world. Other people’s perception of you is a reflection of them; your response to them is an awareness of you.” ― Roy T. Bennett __________ VII – “There are things known and there are things unknown, and in between are the doors of perception.” ― Aldous Huxley

‘MY GROWN UP CHRISTMAS LIST: Creating Miracles by Perceiving Your World as it Could Be’ Part I I – “The light for your earthly life is perception. Therefore, if your perception is without fault, your whole life shall be enlightened. If your perception be evil, your whole life shall be darkened by it; if the light for you is darkness, how deep will your darkness become?” (Matthew 6:22, 23 – Khaboris Manuscript) __________ II – “My Grown Up Christmas List” Do you remember me? I sat upon your knee I wrote to you With childhood fantasies Well, I’m all grown up now And still need help somehow I’m not a child But my heart still can dream So here’s my lifelong wish My grown up Christmas list Not for myself But for a world in need No more lives torn apart That wars would never start And time would heal all hearts And everyone would have a friend And right would always win And love would never end This is my grown up Christmas list __________ III – “If the doors of perception were cleansed everything would appear to man as it is, Infinite. For man has closed himself up, till he sees all things thro’ narrow chinks of his cavern.” ― William Blake __________ IV – “Now when the man Jesus was born as a baby in Bethlehem of Judea during the reign of Herod the king, astrologers from the East came to Jerusalem to inquire about Him. These astrologers, or “Magi” originated from a religious caste among the Persians who were devoted to divination (or the practice of the magic arts) and to the interpretation of dreams. They came from Southern Arabia, where they had long maintained a tradition of Israelite Messianic expectation that had survived in the region since the days of the Queen of Sheba; and this tradition survived alongside their practice of astrology. When they came to Jerusalem, they began to ask around, “Where is He Who has been born King of the Jews? For we have charted His star in the East through our understanding of the zodiac and have come to worship Him.” (Matthew 2:1, 2 – Matthew In The Now) __________ V – “Strings of street lights, EVEN STOPLIGHTS Blinkin’ bright red and green As the shoppers rush home with their treasures Hear the snow crunch, see the kids bunch This is Santa’s big day And above all this bustle you hear…” – Silver Bells __________ VI – “Indeed, I am now saying (or: I am truly saying now) that whoever may say to this mountain (or: in this mountain), ‘Be picked up, and be cast (thrown) into the midst of the sea,’ and may not be undecided or be divided in his discernment or judgment within his heart, but to the contrary, can (or: may; would) continuously trust and believe with confidence that what he is speaking is progressively occurring (or: birthing itself; coming into existence), it will proceed being [thus] for him (or: by him; to him; in him; with him).” (Mark 11:23 – JMNT) __________ VII – “To be more childlike, you don’t have to give up being an adult. The fully integrated person is capable of being both an adult and a child simultaneously. Recapture the childlike feelings of wide-eyed excitement, spontaneous appreciation, cutting loose, and being full of awe and wonder at this magnificent universe.” – Wayne Dyer

The worst thing you can do is nothing.” ― Theodore Roosevelt III – “Dare to keep moving when it is a must and dare to keep waiting when you have to, but note, you shall always keep waiting if you keep waiting and you shall always keep moving when you keep moving!” ― Ernest Agyemang Yeboah IV – “You’ll DECIDE WHAT YOU WANT and IT WILL HAPPEN; your life will be bathed in light. To those who feel low you’ll say, ‘Chin up! Be brave!’ and God will save them. Yes, even the guilty will escape, escape through God’s grace in your life.” (Job 22:28-30 – The Message) V – “It’s a lack of clarity that creates chaos and frustration.
