Sensitize Substitute (or Where’s Jonathan?) … September 18th, 2020

Truth is, he’s in the hospital–diagnosed with a spot of pneumonia.

He’ll be back soon–but all Prayerapy and even good vibes are certainly solicited.

So your writer today is Janet Clazzy, long-time partner and friend-to-the-end.

Suspecting that many of you have become fond of Mr. Cring’s daily morning post–his Sensitize videos–I thought I might conjure a substitute.

NOT one I make up (collective sigh of relief).

No, I shall plumb some of the depths of Jonathan’s legacy thus far.

“But,” you might ask, “I am interested in his RECENT thoughts.”

I sympathize. Me, too.

But here’s a bit of insight on Mr. Cring’s work: it’s both historical and evolutionary. In other words, some of the themes are new. Other theses he’s been stumping his whole life.

For example:

When he was eight years old, he pretty much concluded that God isn’t mean. He recently wrote an article about it called “Damn.”

He published a book entitled The Gospel According to Common Sense in 1978, explaining that God meant us to be human, since He made us that way.

In a live performance in 1980, I heard Jonathan say, “All information that comes to you hits your emotions first.” He went on to explain that we are heart, soul, mind and strength creatures. (Sound familiar?)

In 2009, he promoted the notion that No One Is Better Than Anyone Else. (We did two years of touring under that title.)

In 2015 he wrote Within, a short book that shows that the Sermon on the Mount is full of lifestyle coaching.

And in 2018, along came Prayerapy–the notion that prayer and therapy are meant to heal us, if we will spill our emotions out loud in our own private closet.

So over the next few days, with Jonathan being temporarily out of pocket, I shall put out some of his previous works that are still quite, shall we say, “Sensitizing.”

So let’s get started. Here is today’s video:
