Conversations about Spirituality, Religion, Doubt, Sacred Texts, Nature, Soul, Love, Death and all the Good Stuff

    Disconnect from the Machine

    Disconnect from the Machine

    Crisis means "turning point," an opportunity, as much as a struggle.  This week I discuss practical ways of unplugging from the machine, finding some deeper source, which is needed now more than ever.  "What if you gain the whole world and forfeit your soul?" How do we return to what matters in an age that is deciding for us, what to think, what to buy, what to protest, what to post, what to care about, what to promote, what flag we should fly, and who we should be.  Time for a Sabbath from all this nonsense.

    What Really Matters?

    What Really Matters?

    Just holding the question, "what really matters," seems to be more important right now than quick answers.   This week is about that question, as well as the gifts of silence, severance and solitude.  I also turn to some voices of wisdom, Merton, Berry and Rilke, who have lived through a few things, and still their words ring true. This time period is nothing short of a global invitation to change, but how and when and at what cost all seem to be unanswered.  I hope you hear a few hints and guesses which inspire and challenge.  Stay safe, stay smart, be courageous.

    Beauty and Terror...Just Keep Going

    Collision of opposites, Corona, survival dance, sacred dance, abandonment, overwhelm, extrovert, introvert and the possibilities of a greater consciousness.  What a world we live in!  Stay safe and smart and courageous.

Insightful

I grew up in an Bible believing home where no one questioned anything. You trusted your pastor and his message. You left church and lived your life. Also going to church twice on a Sunday, being seen in attendance by all the people you knew was the big thing. How empty. Now a parent myself and 45 years old, I’ve found myself confronting all my big questions. Thank you for helping me see that the questions are the journey! I’m so happy to work towards my own truth and not the spoon fed one I’ve inherited. Kent’s wisdom is incredible!!

Pondering

Kent makes me think. I found this podcast after reading his book “Bitten By a Camel”. His podcasts are thought-provoking, often causing me to have to consider ideas in new ways. I appreciate his openness and honesty. Definitely worth your pondering.
