Every human thought, word, or deed is based on 1 of 2 ways of living: either out of fear or out of love.
Fear is the energy which contracts, closes down, draws in, hides, hoards, & harms. Love is the energy which expands, opens up, sends out, reveals, shares, & heals.
This is the free choice we each have - choose wisely beloved. 🖤✌🏽❤️

I was one of the weeks ago but I never download, just stream the episodes. I couldn’t let this fact go unsaid, clearly. I have been meaning to revisit the end of pt 1 when Bushi references teachers I meant to look up- thanks for the hashtag and the reminder, friends

Can’t believe I’m willingly putting a book titled “Six Pillars of Self Esteem” on my actual reading list. But bell hooks’ description of
Nathaniel Branden’s:

1. the practice of living consciously
2. self-acceptance
3. self-responsibility
4. self-assertiveness
5. living purposefully and
6. the practice of personal integrity

makes it clear to me that self esteem is not a simple concept, but is hard work and also imperative to all my relationships in life.

Thankful to have renewed my library copy of bell hooks’ All About Love a second time now to reread ch 4 on self-love because DAMN this concept is the foundation on which all my intra- and inter-personal healing and growth depends.

Am I correct in deducing that most people participating in aren't done with the book yet? Should we attempt to facilitate discussion more to completion before we move on? I’m only on chapter 4 tho soo... I know I would benefit from a flexible but slightly regular reading/discussing schedule. Thoughts?

The Gospel According to Mike (via hyper intelligent aliens and 2000 year old recording tech): ADD TO CART BUY NOW DOWNLOAD STREAMING EVERYWHERE ETC lollll this one’s a good one, guys

Aaarrggh literally fuck high heels — WHY DO WE KEEP AGREEING TO THIS, LADIES?! RIP shins, knees, ankles, MOBILITY IN MY OLD AGE

@mike I’m really glad you’re making progress creating healthy boundaries/methods of doing your job of podcaster. I relate with your tendency to absorb experiences/emotions of those who reach out to you. I am realizing in this moment that I should probably quit the cutesy joke of referring to you as my pseudo “dad” bc yikes I don’t wanna contribute any further to your need to build various levels of boundaries for yourself, professionally and just social media-ly, in the name of self care. ❤️ Love

Starting the latest ep which will be heard in chunks thruout my weekend, but just came here to say: THANK YOU @mike and @vishnu for skipping the intro. It’s so wonderful and I do love it but it blasts my eardrums and I start each episode w a level of agitation that I then have to pause and redirect/recover from... Also I LOVE YOU BOTH. Also

Friends, are we doing or ? I need a clear definition in at least ONE area of my life rn lolll

For all you non-USAmerican Liturgists: how do you feel your journey/process/deconstruction differs from what our fellow Liturgists in the US commonly experience?

In my case, it was that religion and politics aren't married, our church was theologically conservative but relatively diverse politically. Although the Religious Right is growing in Paraguay, it isn't nearly as influential as in the US.

My parents and I no longer agree on many theological issues, but we agree that 45 is an asshole.
