@mike thank you❤️ It’s vitally important to take this stand! As the song The Village by Wrabel says “one page in the Bible isn’t worth a life”

Thinking tonight about how vitally important religion is for so many people in this world. All of the great traditions have sheltered so many hurting and afraid people for thousands of years. This is worth remembering when we feel the (rightful) need to tear it down or take it apart in pursuit of truth, beauty, and love.

Just posted a new THIS pod that includes one of the chapters of my upcoming audiobook! Let me know what you think 🙂

there's an episode of kim possible where kim is trying to distract someone by talking to her, and the audience follows someone else taking advantage of the distraction

and there's a bit where it cuts back to kim and the woman she's talking to goes "amazing! you know, not that many people know why a lightbulb is both hardware AND software" and that line has fucked me up for my whole life. how can a lightbulb be software. what the fuck does that mean

@mike @vishnu I loved the on-location AATR, it was a refreshing change (not that it was getting stale) and very relaxing to listen to while stacking bricks on a pallet 😊👍

In other news how are peeps doing? Been a while since I ventured back on here.

I've been reading the Gateless Barrier as per Mason's suggestion in the THIS podcast, and I'm finding myself more and more interested in enlightenment and the buddhist thought. But I feel like this interest implies that I don't already have the intrinsic buddha within me/this. To really find this enlightenment and oneness (which I am not truly separate from) how do I express intent without the awareness that I'm viewing myself as separate from the world/this?

Thanks everyone for the suggestions! I've got my reading cut out for me, looking forward to it 📖

Stop your scroll

Release the tension in your jaw

Take 3 deep breaths, paying attention to ever second. in and out.

Ask your body "what do you need right now?"

Give it space and silence to respond

Ask your heart "what do you need right now?"

Give it space and silence to respond

Take the answers seriously and honor them as best you can.

This is kind of a weird question, but how do people get more out of poetry? I feel like when I read it I don't reach a kind of depth and passion that some people get. I can resonate strongly with lyrics, but poetry falls flat to me.

Any tips on how to get more out of poetry?

(I've been reading Whitman's Leaves of Grass)

only 20 minutes into the Buddhism episode and already loving it! I feel like this is gonna flip some switches in my head. ?

after everything I said about suffering and acceptance of pain, I have to say, I just had a painful stomach bug and no part of me was ready to 'embrace' that pain or be present for it. I just wanted it to be gone and wished I'd appreciated the times without the pain better 😂😂😂

@erik @leandrabeing why? Just why?? Why did I read the convo which made me check out the website? Why did I listen to Enneagram 1, 2, & 3 followed by my #4? What have you done to me?!? 😂😪🖤✌🏽❤️

@sjcw

Having some kind of basic script allows you to cope emotionally ahead and know what you want to say. That will help decrease your anxiety in the moment and make you feel more confident and hopefully for the other person more comfortable so you can move on to the conversation. For the people closest to you, you can actually tell them how those questions make you feel. I wouldn't give that to everybody because not every relationship deserves that much emotional labor.

how do people deal/react to others from a traditional Christian background saying 'when you come back it's going to be a great testimony'?

I've gotta say I have to stifle some serious anger and just laugh it off or lightly agree

I'm wondering how others have found their interactions with those who showed them the liturgists? Have your dynamics changed as a result of any deconstruction? Or did you show someone the liturgists and you noticed a change in relationship?
