Dear Folks -
While attending the conference in New Mexico on mysticism with James Finley and Richard Rohr I came up with a ten word prayer that captures, at least for now, what I think the essence of non-dual spirituality is all about. I use that prayer to get at what I think the meaning of Jesus' parable about "the talents" is all about.
In an uncertain and rapidly changing world it is easy to become reactive and protective. It is important that we take care of ourselves. The question is: what value system do we use to move into the future? What does it mean, in terms of our spiritual work and religious living, to be "good and faithful servants"? That's a summary of what the "life talk" I gave in Ordinary Life is about.
