Dear Folks -
Usually when people make eye-contact with each other they are
connecting subject-to-subject. Our culture encourages us to connect
subject-to-object. The results of this are disastrous. If, however,
we are to make authentic connections with each other, we must first
make them with ourselves. I call this making I-Contact and that is
what this life-talk is about. How do we move from the ego (or false
self) toward the Self (or True Self)?
One of the things that gets in the way of our connected with
either the Sacred or the Self, at least in the Christian religion, is
the notion that "Jesus died for my sins." I talk about how this
understanding of the death of Jesus came into being. Then some
practical steps on what I-contact and eye-contact involve.
