17 Aug The Secret to Awesomeness Event (Seminar Highlights)

 

Hi peeps!

 

The Secret to Awesomeness event the other day turned out … awesome! It was great to finally meet many of you face-to-face. I feel so honored knowing that some of you came all the way from the US, Singapore, Tagaytay, Quezon City, etc., just to attend the event. (Despite the thunderstorm, too!)

 

Seeing the tears, hearing the laughter, and having people openly share their their deepest struggles (for the first time) … wow … it was like heaven on earth to me.

 

Some of you approached me and said, “I’ve been waiting for this day.” You know what? Me too. I want all of you to know that you inspire me as well. As I mentioned in the talk, you are people of COURAGE. And hearing your stories motivates me to keep doing what I’m doing here in the Philippines.

 

I’m not sure when the next event will be, but one thing’s for sure. I will cherish this day. Thank you for supporting my wife and I all these years.

 

Much Love and Peace to you all.

 

Joshua Tongol

08 Jun It Starts Here // Spoken Word

SW Love Yourself Thumbnail

 

 

Start here.

 

Yup, that’s what this video is about.

 

Before you go out and try to …

change the world …

pursue happiness …

or enter a relationship.

 

Start here.

 

Because doing this one thing first … changes everything.

 

I hope you get inspired by my first Spoken Word Poetry video.

 

*Lyrics of Poem Below* (© All Rights Reserved.)

 

If you were to look at yourself in a mirror right now, what would you see?

Too fat.
Too skinny.
Ears are too big.
Or your eyes too small.

Little things you hate about yourself … or maybe you don’t like yourself all. I don’t know

Now if you were to look directly into your eyes in a mirror right now, what would you feel?

Pain?
Fear?
Guilt?
Shame?

Things you don’t like talking about yet they already have a name. It’s rising.

Now let me be straight up with you real quick. And I want you to be completely honest, too. You ready?

Do you love yourself?

I ain’t talking about bein’ all cocky and boastful about havin’ it made.

I’m talkin’ about feeling worthy enough and accepting yourself no matter how many mistakes you’ve made.

Vision.

Sure, there can be times in life when all the clicks and likes and views really seem to flatter.
But when you think about it, though, you can have all the health, wealth and success in the world-but if you don’t love yourself, then what else . . . really . matters?

Growing up I felt different … insecure … and ugly.

And no matter how well I dressed or cut my hair, I thought no girl would ever love me.

Been teased. Been bullied. And even called “freak.” I felt extremely self-conscious everyday of the week.

“What’s wrong with me?”

That was the question.

Blindness.

I couldn’t see the love. And for the longest time what I didn’t have … got in the way of me seeing all that I already was.

Flip it.
What about you?

Ever been
called stupid?
Wished you were never born?
Compared yourself to others?
Or had your heart ripped out and torn [a/part] …

A part of our lives is what we show the world.

‘Cause that’s what we do.
We keep the hurt inside.
Pretend every things OK
Then go away and hide. . (It’s dark in here!)

But trust me, that’s not where we wanna dwell.

So let me ask this question to all of us: Do we love ourselves?

Society tells us what to eat, what to drink, what to wear and what to drive … driving us crazy ’cause we just wanna feel alive.

We hear things like “you’re supposed to be this” and “you’re supposed to be that” … blah, blah, blah.

Then we end up even more broken, more empty, and with more stains … stuck in an endless cycle with no real substance ever gained. We’re lost!

Only wanting to find our way . You see, we don’t really wanna end our lives … reality is … we only wanna end our pain.

So how do we try fixing ourselves?

Money. Sex. Power.

Now are these things wrong, in and of themselves? No! But here’s the question of the hour: Why do you do what you do?

Think about it.

Are your pursuits stemming from self-love?
Or are they ways for you to try to attain love?
Big difference.

‘Cause if you ain’t lovin’ yourself first, the pursuit happiness … is nothin’ but a hindrance.

Go for it. The results are the same again and again. What it comes down to is: Do YOU treat YOURSELF as your own best friend?

Love.

You can’t give away what you don’t have, right? Listen.

Truth is, despite your mistakes, failures, and shortcomings … none of those things define you.

They never have, and they never will. So move on which your life and stop standing still . Keep going

The past is the past. Learn from your mistakes . Forgive and give yourself another chance .

You see, once you start loving yourself, life … suddenly starts loving you back.

I’m not saying it’s gonna be perfect, but you’ll stop noticing the lack. . Life’s flowing.

YOU . are a gift to the world.

And like with any gift, it’s what’s inside that ultimately matters.

Know … your … worth.

‘Cause if more people looked within, the world would stop perishing.
You don’t believe me? Then try loving yourself .
‘Cause loving yourself … changes … everything.

08 Nov Nadia Khalil Bradley: Jesus Christ Appears and Speaks to a Muslim Woman | The Flipside #13

Nadia Khalil Bradley Flipside

 

 

If a Muslim told you that Christ appeared to her, what would you do?

 

In this episode, I interview Nadia Khalil Bradley. Nadia began her journey in a tight-knit Palestinian-American community located in a suburb of Chicago. A devout Muslim, she followed the traditions upheld in the community and within the culture, having very little knowledge of Christ.

 

She had been writing to God for years, until one day, he answered her. In 2002, while still a Muslim, Nadia had a vision of Christ that literally changed her life forever. Since then, she has been sharing her experiences and insights through her writing (3 books so far) and podcast show (Christisms). Her books include Little Wing, Origins of Truth, and her latest, Original Love.

 

IN THIS EPISODE, NADIA ANSWERS THE FOLLOWING:

 
• What did Christ look like? Was he ghostly figure? Floating in mid-air?
• What were you feeling at that moment when you saw Christ face to face?
• How has this experience changed your life?
• What did Christ sound like? Was it a voice in your head? A “knowing”? Audible?
• So how do you know it’s Christ you’re hearing and not just your ego?
• Why did Christ reveal himself to you this way? Are you special?
• What is the main message Christ came to bring you?
• What were some of the questions Christ asked you?
• Do you still hear Christ today the same way you heard him the first time?
• Do you still see Christ in a physical form?
• When you pray, do you make a distinction between God and Christ?
• Who is Christ to you? God? A messenger?
• Do you still consider yourself a Muslim? Or did you become a Christian?
• How do you know there is no hell?
• How do you handle the skeptics?
• Some Christians say your experience was demonic. What is your response?
• Has this experience affected your relationships with friends and family?
• What are some truths you’ve learned throughout the years?

25 Sep I’m Here For You (Limited Time Offer For 1-On-1 Coaching/Spiritual Direction With Joshua Tongol)

coaching spiritual direction promo

 

Fall has just begun and I have some great news.

 

But before I get into that, ever since I released my new podcast The Flipside, (if you haven’t heard it yet, you’re missing out!), I’ve been receiving so many positive responses from people who can relate to the stories shared on the show.

 

That being said, I guess that’s good news, too. But wait, there’s more!

 

For a limited time, I’m offering my 1-hour coaching/spiritual direction services with a huge discount. Originally it was $200 per hour, but for now it’s only $150 per hour.

 

Do you need coaching/spiritual direction? Well, let me ask you a couple of things.

 

• Are you questioning your faith, not knowing what to believe anymore?

• Are you a pastor/minister experiencing a crisis of faith?

• Are you involved in ministry, but getting tired of it all?

• Are you struggling with loneliness ever since you left  the institutional church?

• Are you shedding religion, but not sure what the next step is?

 

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions … let me just say this … I’m here for you.

 

Believe me, I’ve experienced all of the above, and then some. And if there’s one thing I’ve learned on this journey, it’s this: life is so much better with a friend who listens and offers guidance.

 

So if you’re interested in a 1-one-1 session with me, here are the steps to take:

 

1) Go to the CONTACT section and title the subject “COACHING”

2) Explain the area (in detail) you’d like me to help you with

3) Wait for my reply and I’ll let you know if we are a good fit for each other
4) Once your payment is made, a day and time for the session will be scheduled

 

WHY CHARGE FOR COACHING?

 
• Keep Things Professional

• Adds Value to your Time Together

• Helps with your Motivation and Commitment

 

(*IMPORTANT: These sessions aren’t meant for seeking healing prayer or asking theological questions.)

 

Rates: $150 Per Hour (1 Session)

All sessions are confidential and will be conducted either via telephone or Skype

All payments are made through his PayPal Account (see SUPPORT or right side of homepage)

 

Hope to hear from you soon,

Josh
