Or, Would You Rather Be A Pig?

ORDINARY LIFE - Thoughts and Ideas to Help You Live a Happier Life




Summary of June 24, 2012




Dear Folks -


I have been probing and being probed by Henri Nouwen's provocative book, "The Return of the Prodigal Son." My intention is to follow his unfolding of this marvelous story in an effort to see the timeless applicability it has for our lives.


One requirement, and there are many, for being open to the truths this story has for us is what I call "the humility of non-dual mind."


It takes humility to see and admit how far we have wandered from being the people we are called to be. I end this talk with a couple of illustrations from sex and politics and the question "would you like to swing upon a star? Or, would you rather be a pig?"


The full text I used is below. The audio version, to be found on the Ordinary Life website is somewhat different. You can find the presentations slides I used on the website as well.


Much love,


Bill Kerley
