Dear Folks -
I based the "life talk" I gave this week on my recent experience of having had open heart surgery. I'm not meaning to be self-centered but, rather, centered in the Self. I can think of few events that so redefine one's self-understanding and sense of identity than such an event.
The question I have raised for myself is this: when death does come for any of us, how can we live so that we don't end up having been merely visitors on this planet? I contend that there is a huge difference between the trust some people have in "magical nonsense" and the truly miraculous. One of the ways I illustrated this was by doing a magic trick which doesn't translate to a written text. Perhaps by listening to the audio, one might get a sense of it.
