@silas @mike I feel that too. I believe so many of us feel that way about RHE because she IS so open and vulnerable and funny and passionate and didn’t hide the fact that like all humans she is utterly wonderfully flawed....If what we have had is indeed a para-social relationship, it has been one that her heart for all of us made personal. I hear it in her voice and see it in her words. I like to think she wanted it that way.
I’ve been trying to go back and tag all our episodes that have Rachel in them. You can see them at the link below. If I forgot any, let me know and I’ll update them they appear in this list.
@Natalie so there is a third addition that includes: “the Black Lives Matter movement, the presidency of Barack Obama, the rise of hate speech on the Internet, and more”. or should I stick with your original suggestion?
@Natalie great suggestion I remember really liking a “golden rule” Ted talk she gave. Thank you.
@Ricci maybe hold up on the underwear plan?
@Natalie I appreciate your honesty and your advice. Here is the scenario: The “zombie apocalypse” has begun and I can only take three books which will fit in my knapsack. These books may well be the only ones I ever lay hands on “in the time I have left”. What are they?
enneagram 5s, CAN YOU RELATE:
@skerz sometimes I feel layered and choose to peel back only as much as will not expose me to hurt and sometimes I hold my layers closely as I attempt to discern whether others are “worthy” of having a new layer revealed to them...in the end neither is truly healthy and I know it even as I continue the practice.
So I devoured the Netflix series Joseph Campbell “The Power of Myth” and I was like “where has this dude been all my life” and from deep within the still small voice answered “the better question might well be where have YOU been...”
oh my ego!
@Vaashtii probably Spiritual Trauma though Black and White is a close second.
@shaggy I’m still thinking...
@Ricci love Chris Rice...
Question for #buddhist6
for my exploration...Allan Watts yes or meh?
@shaggy When we try to break through these paradigms to help someone see things from another perspective, we are up against their life experiences, perhaps their parental life experiences, friends and mentors life experiences...news media, tv shows, education, even geography all can contribute to and provide them “evidence” for the paradigms that make up the way they see the world. Stephen Covey says: “We think we see the world as it is, when in fact we see the world as we are." (7 Habits book)
@shaggy It is hard because it goes beyond just being someone’s opinion or a perspective which you are up against. They are more like paradigms which are defined as: “a framework containing the basic assumptions, ways of thinking, and methodology that are commonly accepted by members of a scientific community”. While “social paradigms” are not necessarily scientific they are made up of “evidence” of which can solidify how someone sees the world.
@Ricci not sure about now...but IMO it is probably safe to assume that the zealots who sought to kick the Romans out of Israel were at the very least disappointed by Jesus being unwilling to openly support their attempts at rebellion. It would have been quite the endorsement.
@Ricci hah I knew it was your question! I like the fact that this forum allows us to be real enough inside of it to be recognized outside of it.
