Dear Folks –
This week's life talk in Ordinary Life is about identity and
loyalty. Who are we? How are we to behave – both as individuals and
as a people.
Sometimes we have errors in the way that we think that keep us
from seeing "what is." Some of these are being seduced by power,
fear, cultural bias, consumerism and speed.
Authentic life and living are to be found when we learn to be
"in" the various worlds in which we live without either gaining or
losing our identity to them. If misguided loyalty causes us to lose
sight of who we really are, it is "blind loyalty." It causes it to
have "false identity."
The empire-like culture in which we live causes us frequently to
confuse the love of power for the power of love.
Unfortunately, no audio available this week.
