Dear Folks -
I read somewhere recently that most all people who drive automobiles think that they are above average drivers. That is to say, we have a tendency to evaluate ourselves higher than might actually be the case. When it comes to evaluating how we are doing psychologically and spiritually most all people think that we are alert and aware, loving and compassionate. Yet, just a cursory glance at our behaviors indicates that this is not the case. In the talk I gave in Ordinary Life this past week I talked about what it means to be awake and how foreign this state is to us.
A full text and audio of the talk is below. (Please click on the blue link of your choice to download.)
