Thirst is potentially life threatening. It is a form of physical suffering that requires the satisfaction of water or we will die. A thirsty person is never at their best. In this podcast I show how thirst is a common metaphor for our souls. Like physical thirst, our soul-based thirst puts us into dire situations, where we seek satisfaction from things that won’t cut it. Perhaps seeing people as thirsty is a better way to view others than seeing them as stupid. Thirst is the suffering that happens when we skim over the depth that is our life. Fortunately, for all of us, there is satisfaction.
