Richard Rohr - Why Males Need Initation
The neuroscience he shares is the saddest news of my life. I still have hopes that psychedelics can heal the brain in later life.
@mike The episode "Man" leaves me wishing for another episode on "Masculinity". Is there time in y'all's scheduled programming for exploring the art of manliness in such a way that doesn't prop itself up with ego and patriarchy?
"I Kissed Dating Goodbye" author is not a Christian anymore
@SchrodingersCuriousCat it's not said At All
It used to be that it was said once a year by the high priest in the holy of holies on Yom Kippur but then the temple got burned down and we replaced the priests with the rabbi system. The kohanim's descendents don't know how to pronounce it
Hey fedi- I used to work at a thrift store; and if you are donating some old books, here are some that aren't worth the resources spent transporting, sorting, and pricing them because they just don't sell:
- best seller novels like HP, Twilight, The Hunger Games, etc. So many of these are donated that most don't move
- self-help books, especially best sellers, for the same reason
- Chicken Soup for anyone's soul
thank you and boosts +
Need perspectives on mindfulness
As I'm cultivating greater compassion, nonjudgement, and love for myself and others, it feels like I have brought into existence a degree of emotional awareness that doesn't correspond to my upbringing and past experiences much at all. It's untamed and raw. Those of you who are experienced meditators, how do you process these increases in the plane of the soul?
religion ✝️, anarchism
The antagonists of the New Testament included two separate kings of Judea, religious authorities, religious fundamentalists, Roman tax collectors, Roman police, a Roman governor who was "only doing his job" and thus denied responsibility for the horrible state-sponsored execution he ordered, the Roman empire in general really, and a fucking snitch
and you're telling me Christianity isn't inherently anti-authoritarian?
"Dad," she called, "there's a monster under my bed!"
Her father came in and sat on her bed. "What did you hear?"
"It said I'm a failure, and-"
"Oh. That used to live under my bed."
"When did it leave?"
He smiled. "When you said you loved me."
With a hiss, the monster was gone.
