Dear Folks -
The title I gave the talk I offered in Ordinary Life this week is -
What Is The Meaning Of Life?
There Is Soup In the Attic!
When spiritual teachers attempt to convey the wisdom of their truth what they have to say sounds confusing and confounding. That’s because we initially hear it from the standpoint of duality.
I begin with a non-dual poem that is new to me. I’m so glad I found it. Then, I talked about how both religious and spiritual illiteracy are doing so much damage to our social fabric. What we need are public theologians who can bring us back to the values that will allow everything and every one to belong. The “prophets” I mention are Ruby Sales, Daniel Berrigan and Dorothy Day.
That’s a brief summary of the talk I offered this week in Ordinary Life. You can read the text from which I spoke using the link below. The audio version is somewhat different. The presentations slides and the audio version of the talk can be accessed using the links below. By the way, the transcript of the interview with Ruby Sales conducted by Krista Tippet is available using the link below as well.
Be well and much love,
