The Rodan Foundation's Publication for the Metaphysical Church of Enlightenment, November 2017
In 1981, Reverend Clarke Carraway founded The Rodan Foundation with the intention of creating a powerful, growing community of awakening beings who experience love, peace, prosperity, unity, healing, harmony, and revelation through learning and service. The Rodan Foundation, recognizing the Law of Cause and Effect, expresses gratitude for the many blessings it reaps from the community's experiences.
Welcome. Join with us in our dynamic weekly services where we discover our true purpose in an emerging world. Experience the revelation of our collective awakening to the power of love, the wonder of our multi-dimensional capacities, and the joy in reclaiming earth as our home. Sunday mornings provide the opportunity to celebrate life with like-minded beings and experience personal reassurance and empowerment through the spiritual messages of Reverend Carraway's mediumship. We look forward to your participation enhancing our community.
If you came here for answers, you're in the wrong place. Here's a profound realization that 99% of people miss... Questions are far more important than answers. Answers come to us constantly. But answers are responses to questions we're constantly putting out. If you can consciously ask the right questions, the answers you seek will naturally appear. Don't chase answers, ask the right questions and the answers will chase you.
Plus, answers aren't destinations. They actually lead to more questions. And it's in posing the right questions where the true A-HA moments come. Wisdom is not about having the right answers, but in asking the right questions. Here is a list of 33 questions that can potentially spark something within. But this is a start. Meditate on these. Ponder them and allow the knowing within to blossom.
1. Who am I?
2. What am I grateful for?
3. Am I here, in the present moment?
4. What percentage of every day am I present?
5. In what areas of life do I NOT apply the information I have?
6. What excites me?
7. Who inspires me?
8. Exactly how does my favorite song make me feel?
9. Why am I on this planet?
10. What is my purpose?
11. What are my thought patterns?
12. What stories am I telling myself?
13. What beliefs do I cling to?
14. Am I willing to let go of my identity?
15. Do I fear death?
16. What is fear?
17. What is love?
18. Who is the observer of my thoughts?
19. How am I holding myself back?
20. Why am I not where I want to be?
21. What is stopping me from being happy right now?
22. Am I living my truth?
23. How can I get closer to my truth?
24. What are my most fundamental assumptions?
25. Could my most fundamental assumptions be incorrect?
26. How is my internal state affecting my experience of the external world?
27. Am I simultaneously existing in multiple dimensions?
28. Are my perceptions limited to 5 senses?
29. Could there be more than just this three-dimensional reality?
30. What am I not letting myself see?
31. Where am I holding tension?
32. What is my biggest fear?
33. What is underneath my biggest fear?
Now stop reading. Take a few minutes and meditate on these questions. Write some of them down. Let them marinate in your being a bit. Then allow the insights to come pouring through.

Musicians Norman Tiedemann, electric guitar and vocals, Morgan Furrow, drums, and Joe Foster, mouth harp, will bring their Rock & Roll groove and transport us back to the times of great music.November 19: SOUND MEDITATION MYSTERY! Virtually everything on Earth vibrates. All matter consists of atomic material which is in constant motion. This motion generates frequencies, which then generate sound. The velocity (frequency) of the movement determines the specific sound. Hazrat Khan, the Sufi master stated that: “The knower of the mystery of sound knows the mystery of the whole universe.” Designed by Arin Wiscomb and our musical community, this sound meditation has the potential to break up emotional, physiological and spiritual blockages. Join with us as we activate our sound codes and explore the mystery within!
