If you think we are watching our communities react to the pain of social injustice, look closer. Both sides are being played like a well-tuned instrument. The pressure to pit us against one another has never been stronger, but if you think the reason is political, your still not seeing it.
In today’s podcast and post I will unveil the pernicious assault on the human soul and the only way to stop it. Join me now for a podcast that none of us will like as we see beyond our pain and anger into the power behind the whole mess.
Same question again this week: “Have you ever had a satisfactory answer to the question of why each religion think it’s better than the others?
Last week’s post burst a few wineskins leaving many of you with more questions than answers. So in this week’s post and podcast we explore what Cynthia Bourgeault calls the San Andreas Fault in the Country of the Heart.
Join me now as we begin to see what has been invisible for so many people for centuries, namely that this faultline creates a rupture in everything we thought we understood about spirituality, faith and religion, allowing us to see beyond everything.
I know that I confuse a lot of people. This happens because I bring together seemingly unrelated ideas. Our confusion is often dismissed or skimmed over and in the podcast and post I want to invite you to explore areas of confusion because it is a window into something truly profound. Here I will weave together multiple diverse ingredients as an object lesson that exposes how our pride robs us of learning from others and it robs the world of our unique contribution. This is all hidden beyond our confusion and I’ll help you gain the required categories in order to see it.
Every win/lose paradigm ends the same way; smug winners and angry losers. Seeing the world through a binary lens is at the heart of what it means to be poor and the result is the suffering we see in every corner of the globe. In this post and podcast I provide an example of how two completely opposite truth claims can be resolved into something bigger than either claim. This has always been the path forward as this is the path to wisdom. Somewhere we bought into this idea that if one thing is right then the opposite must be wrong and we began erecting monuments and systems that support our team. The end result was the dehumanization of the other side or what I call poverty.
