Dear Folks -
I begin this talk with information about the symbolism of water and fish in doing "soul work."
There are two fears we bring to doing spiritual work. First, that nothing will happen. Second, that something will.
We are called to love the enemy which means not using people as hooks for our personal projections.
In thinking that we in the Western world are exceptional and special we have given birth to people who feel that they are entitled and who have little capacity for assuming personality responsibility for themselves or the world in which they live.
That is a brief summary of the talk I gave in Ordinary Life this week.
The full text that I spoke from, as well as links to various sites I referred to is below. The audio version is somewhat different from the text and can be found on the Ordinary Life website as well as direction for how to have these talks automatically delivered to you as podcasts.
