Dear Folks -
Much of my spiritual teaching can be summed up in two assertions:
First, we reside safely and securely in Sacred Mystery - no matter how it seems. As my teacher put it to me years ago, “God protects us from nothing but sustains us in everything."
Second, meaningful living is to be experienced in allowing Sacred Mystery to find expression through the way we live our lives. We are to live with increasing compassion, kindness and justice.
If we have difficulty realizing these two “truths,” the problem(s) likely are not with Sacred Mystery but, rather, with us. So, what blocks us from these realizations?
In this talk I elaborate on three barriers. They are: being trapped in dualism, arrogance and familiarity.
