Dear Folks -
In Buddhism the ego is called "the hungry ghost." Though the ego
is essential for some aspects of living, it is a disaster to follow
it for insight about a spiritual path to walk. It's hunger for
answers leads us from the forever questioning mind that opens us up
to the mystical where everything belongs and "it is what it is." In
this talk I also talk about the fact that though Jesus was asked many
questions, he only answered three. For what those three are read on.
According to Richard Rohr there are two heresies that the hungry
ghost leads us to be guilty of - silliness and a loss of faith. I
give some examples of both of these heresies including
misunderstandings about the Christmas story.
