Dear Folks -
The talk I offered in Ordinary Life this week focused on the importance of our learning to read life metaphorically. It is not that we are to ignore or be unmindful of the best tools of historical and scientific research. Rather, we will not grasp the meaning of either life or our lives if we do not learn to go beyond this level.
Wise and useful spiritual teachings and practices must reflect a willingness to do whatever it takes for as long as it takes to find and be found by the Truth.
Very often we merely skim the surface of things - like the various stories we have been told - rather than dig deeper to see how these stories touch profound themes in our collective unconscious. This talk explores such a story after using Jack and the Beanstalk as an example.
The text I spoke from, the presentation slides and the audio links are below.
