My extended absence…and the days ahead

My extended absence…and the days ahead

First: a HAPPY NEW YEAR 2014 to All!

Some have been asking about my absence and the future of the radio shows:

I had, for over five months, been experiencing chronic fatigue/chronic pain which was slowly pulling down my immune system, and my ability to function day-to-day. OffPlanet Radio went on sudden hiatus on November 29, 2013, after I experienced physical problems stemming from an infection which required a surgery, 4 days in the hospital, two visits to ER for medication complications, and over a month of convalescence and extended medications to eradicate the infection. 

I have chosen to go “off line” during this time, and for at least the next month, to both heal, and also introspect on directions this show, and other projects should proceed.

It is said that every adversity holds a gift. Mine has been the time to go inward and experience a Shamanic journey. We take things like our well-being far too lightly, until it begins to fail…and like-wise we can see that so much of what we do is really a “near life experience”. 

I want to thank my friends, who were aware of my situation, for their prayers, energy, and well-wishes. I will return in late January—stronger, wiser, and a bit more humble. The work will continue, but at a more human pace, and with an informed perspective.

2014 will be a year of massive shifts…take time to place an ear to the Earth and hear what is moving. We are all part of an amazing time of rapid changes. Embrace good and bad as equal and opposite poles of the coming unification. Everything that can be shaken…shall!

Much Love

  4. Hi Randy, my thoughts and prayers are with you for a full and total recovery. I too am no stranger to CFS/M.E. which I've suffered from since my collapse in 2000, I know how debilitating that can be. Keep well my friend.

  9. Randy,
    Your absence is understandable and felt.
    But this absence may have been avoided.
    I recommend using this new year/ new attitude
    Constructively and wisely to further insulate and
    Protect yourself. There are those that cling to
    You and siphon away your spirtual strength.
    They come as friends but they are anything but.
    I do not refer to the lovely ms. Holly.
    She is a great asset to you and your cause.
    There are others….they of guile and cunning.
    Don't ignore your instincts, they have served you well
    These many years. We can't afford to lose you.
    Enough said. God bless.

  15. Randy, you have steered so far away from the Lord and into mystics, energy healing, and all the other stuff that is so far from the Lord, it is sad to see. You have opened doors and just kept opening until you could no longer hear the Voice of the Lord. You sickness was brought about by the wrongful doors you entered into. What you are so caught up is what you have eaten. Jesus word -partake of Him and throw off this nonsense and demonic stuff you have been engaged with before its too late! I say this with seriousness and with sadness…

  17. WHY I FIND FUNDAMENTALIST CHRISTIANS SO REPULSIVE

    I found your March 6 comment on my website and wanted to respond
    personally. First, how sad that you sent this message under an anonymous
    signature! Do you not have the simple courtesy—and strength of your
    testimony to use your name? Did Jesus tell you to be a coward for Him?

    Second: who are you to judge my path and walk? Your message reads like all
    the typical judgmental hypocrisy of the Pharisees who masquerade as
    Christians, and the reason WHY I walked away from Xtianity (but NOT Jesus).
    To presume to know what may have caused my recent illness; to so severely
    cast aspersions upon me when I was down is so below the mark of the calling
    of anyone who follows Christ that I am nauseous.

    People become ill — even the so-called "spirit-filled" believers. Whether
    it is a cold, a flu, or even cancer, we are all subject to mortal illness.
    To PRESUME such a mantle as to judge me as bringing on this illness due to
    doors I have opened" is way above your pay grade.To declare that I DESERVED
    to be ill is so unlike Jesus, that I am embarrassed for you. So, I guess,
    it makes sense that you would cowardly post such things and NOT identify
    yourself for the unrighteous bastard you are.

    For your information: Jesus healed through energy. Jesus was/is a
    mystic—and Jesus said that HE came NOT to judge the world. Jesus did not
    call you to deliver judgment; He called you to have mercy, discernment,
    compassion, and wisdom. All of which you have failed to display in this
    horrendous torrent of self-righteous fundamentalist puke you posted here.

    FYI: I am now very healthy, and I DO take responsibility for my illness: I
    worked too hard, let my immune system down, and needed to rest. As to the
    state of my spiritual condition, i would suggest you look inside yourself
    and search earnestly. You read the scriptures and do err.

    I wonder if you will reveal yourself?

  18. Amen to that!
    That sort of condemnation coming from a fundamentalist is like a spiritual bloodletting that kills while it cures! Thanks randy for putting that nonsense to rest !
