The Hungry Ghost

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.

Much love,

Bill Kerley
