9/9 Also, I just want to say: don't be afraid to tear down your facades. It's better to be the real you, especially when it comes to faith. I know it's not easy. I know I still have some up. But every time I get to share the real me with people who actually care about me I heal a little bit more.
“There is only this now. It does not come from anywhere; it is not going anywhere. It is not permanent, but it is not impermanent. Though moving, it is always still. When we try to catch it, it seems to run away, and yet it is always here and there is no escape from it. And when we turn around to find the self which knows this moment, we find that it has vanished like the past.” ~ Alan Watts
Listened to "Hot Tub" (2/2)
@vishnu - I think that outgrowing conventional religious narratives leaves us open to deeper spiritual exploration. I relish this on THIS, but also I believe there's a way for you to be genuine in a growth-level-appropriate way for the main Liturgist audience. I also resonate with Mike's comments and think that equal parts learning-about-your-audience and more-strategic-planning can allow more space for "Vish".
Your work is genuinely appreciated.
