Dear Folks -
If we are to grow as centers of freedom and love, we must pay attention to two worlds at once - the outer world and the inner world.
I expand on this thesis in the talk I gave this week in Ordinary Life. The title is "Patience and Persistence: Realizing the Kingdom Within and Without."
The talk is based on a parable of Jesus that frequently goes by the title "The unjust judge."
In summary: We will not have peace in the world until we have justice and we will not be able to do justice until we have done our inner work.
In this talk I use a quote from Jungian analyst John Sanford. Two of his book you might want to follow up on after reading the text below are: Dreams: God's Forgotten Language and The Kingdom Within: The Inner Meaning of the Sayings of Jesus.
A copy of the full text I used is below with the the Keynote presentation and audio version.
