Dear Folks -
One of the major things that blocks people on a spiritual path is asking "why" questions. We only do this when we are functioning at the dualistic level of thinking.
In this talk I outline one of the theories of human development - Kohlberg's moral developmental theory - and then try to deal with not only the futility of "why" questions but also why so-called "bad" things happen in our lives and in the world.
The audio version of the talk is considerably different from the text I used. You can find the audio version on the Ordinary Life website as well as instructions for subscribing to the podcast through iTunes.
