Dear Folks -
The text I used for the "life talk" I gave in Ordinary Life this week is below. The audio version differs from it to some degree.
The theme I am following is exploring the marks of those whose lives reveal that they are not "lost" but, rather, are in the process of being "found."
This talk emphasizes the need for loving kindness and compassion that shows itself in inclusiveness.
Spiritual and religious work must lead us to know and include all of who we are and to know and include all others as well. Two major hallmarks of such work are silence and letting go.
