leaking into the west for hundreds of years so people like a written on and emerson and polarization fine they that was that was leaking enter into their minds and into their writing for will find
the idea of than the world
and it's in the new testament i mean it doesn't really kind of eight ago it's a he said an earthquake event of non-duality a fusion of anti nuclear fusion can you put it in a language which doesn't make not immediately clear to so they kind of the for
but it sure that this will experience and being in the body of place and as to an expensive community and the point of the other the to manifestation vocal of non-duality within christianity
and which bridge the gap between god and a human being that was there in the old system
and having a pulled back into the bed and
the to anticipate and like the earth where he said poetry from that nation
he like clever new feel like you know if that bit be think think help and that battle will create you were truly thing
you be that another planet where or later you need the rest of that okay cause at arizona irritated like understand that personal realization of invaluable to essential to it's not the whole thing that's not the holster for there's more to it does the kind of embodiment dimension to it doesn't
the dimension of interiority and which we really need to final god and also in other wouldn't have that that promise of god which is is beyond normal major viagra refrigerator and
and then there's the initial relationship and others with people and there's the dimension of truth for instance it's hopefully even if you have an interior experience with yourself that a creative experience with can have been yet somehow you need something to connect with of to the fact that something has happened in the world
something objectively has happened them the world where question into the water okay that's extremely important because otherwise on how we don't hook up with that current of energy is flowing from that christ that we don't do it the same way for the head explicit faith in christ is an enormous help
connects connexus as it were at this point kit
and it makes it easier to it to realize the whole thing yet
how successful you think that think he empowered you work with him tradition same single link tsla at john hopkins how successful i may in transcend hey this object contains like
and freeing himself and one k that's that's a good question in a hard question also i think i think it's different with each one that seems to me that elliot
becomes to contend with the tradition and with me planting himself in the tradition okay it has it's strange because he's so why while as it is apparent to where you know he's so completely modernised and so completely free and creative and yet there's something as if he has to quit i can cling to the
tradition in an objective way which i think somewhat suppresses the vitality of business inside the encloses his freedom in some way so this personal toll is not as free as it isn't from other planets and i think with hopkins it's another case that he didn't break out of the think total
the okay which you'll find a hopkins seems to me to be a violent kind of attention between the crash dimension the dimension of faith and the very rigid kind of catholicism them that he was in at that time okay and this complete poetic wait a minute freedom imagination and experience the funds are than instruments i don't think they ever got
reconcile or something whatever got em bodied sufficiently the poetic one okay and freedom in china container of the other one
so in him the pathetic thing was partly free but isn't able to to fly computing and elliott that seems to me it's more like it flies and then it comes down and then back into the group
neck and back
okay let's
ceiling amount of checker
take a look at t english romantic poet i'm not so much with the poetry but was feeling the way they think about it
a metal some of our american porch
okay on
let my children who i do have a gaming but the bottles awakening in your body okay put the divine consciousness somehow is really trying to break through wasn't were on become a conscious muslim national consciousness within the world which is not a consciousness which is present but also to somebody
the basement of thing but a laborious as well i think paul when he talked about their childhoods and moment he he's talking about something like that which are breaking through a consciousness baltasar transformation of the world transformation of songs
have been thinking a little about this was cool
and terms of three concentric circle where somebody that the world is the outside hear about it the inside the center and world the money would end between god and the world and we are as it were a presence of temple of divinity in the world that's what the new testament dollars more puzzles you're the temple of body your bodies are the temple of baal your by
audi is the temple of god so somehow your between that on the world whatever you are a presence of got in the world my chair of dwelling on the that's no testable and but how your god in the world location how your divinity in the world which is not to say that divinity is not already in the world that's more complex
tribal metropolitan and checking to do with the trinity with the difference between word and spirit the interplay between the store with eminent everywhere the school teacher and everything and everybody on the world which comes onto the world and sort of pushes against to contain it pushes outwards against your container and that container is the temple had container those watch
the publishers out against the against the perimeter against your container and meanwhile his period as everywhere and the tour interact
i'm so we kind of discover our challenge as a divine presence within a world as something which has got president donald on and we can either turn inwards to that divine presence on our schedule return out which to the world
and the first is the eastern way no way that orientation strictly towards were not only the asian east of but we encountered tn hinduism and buddhism rational the christian aged that's the age of contemplation refreshed millennium you might say that that turns towards god in that way that's right in the center of i
our spirituality for the first thousand years the first fourteen hundred years maybe
and then we have a kind of a what kind of mechanical river copernican revolution and we begun to discover ourselves were in the word and facing outward towards the world and we can have a good complex about that we can feel the touch and infidelities about you can feel like the fathers that the really important thing is contemplation
but actually that's simply the other span that the other side that has to a bad with has to emerge and then wouldn't have heard marine life with know that right well that you can't just live in contemplation you can just live in interiority important measure age it's only products we can't be a hundred krishnan god boring and a
noi why because god came into the world and is moving into the world through us and in us and so to follow the movement i got into the world was to also going to the world
now what i'm talking about as a little bit pivoting between those two orientation to the orientation strictly towards grab your orientation out into the world that is if it can be summed up in to work the first word is contemplation which is the interior movement there for me is almost synonymous with east
and the other word his creation is creativity or on which action but it's an action which has a spark of transformation within a divine spark within an approach creativity
and i think that we are the image of bad and both with those wage come for a long time we know sledges the image of that only as it were throw union with god through interiority to a contemplation and that verticality and mature that pure interiority that's what we have him in the plastic tradition especially nice but not only in
he rejoined augusta literature large way
but then gradually realize something something happened there and we will have the energy isn't are going in that direction the energy version of living in another direction and it's moving outwards and it's transforming the world and christianity that's the east and much the west the terrorism of contemplation always carries that
it were the the sign of the east village
and the gift of creation of creativity always somehow carries the sign of the west with it and the rest is where it happens and generates the modern world generates the world we have today elektra lose when the rest moves in that direction and completely lose the other and it's better than place
well but if we're talking about the new testament and the college obviously what you would have been the new testament as much more than that eastern direction that establishment at least as those people write about new testament it says it was still absorbed in got moving into the world but are still a jerk and job and so you can derive a vertical
christianity from
most fathers too
what you have in the modern poets is directed towards the world and they understand the human person not in terms of contemplation but in terms of creativity
now i think we're the image of god and as i said as he to the image of god has spiritual image of god as as purity and light and as the beginning and similar
we're also the image of god moving towards the end are also the image of god transforming even in a little way in fact our lives have to transform the with and somewhere otherwise we're good we can't be alive within the world about transforming without affecting so there's two directions okay so i've ever been whole thing is in the new tests
and also that is the created dimension and read the parable and matthew what you have the talent in south africa this and that the parables of the speed and the problems of growth and the part of the time by and vineyards and and jesus shaman and john fifteen you have to bear fruit
now that very true isn't a matter of reading problems but it's still bearing fruit is to creativity which took some kind of effect on our something new being brought into the world suppose they come in person is really the presence of newness and the energy of nearness in the world supposed to hit and suppose that restlessness manage that
but the satisfaction that that emptiness was not on that's never felt there's one only the emptiness forgot the hundred per god but also the hunger to do what we are made to do that is to make something new to bring something new into the retribution of thing no gonna work to that's what jesus was
jesus was like could flame of nervous burning in the middle of the world can try to pull them out didn't work to protect everyone comes up everyone like is like a flare-up you over the an was refurbished by so the human person as not emily the light of god and the world that the energy of known as front door
i want to talk a little bit more about history i think during his first session which won't be too long
and then use out as a background for which for carla
i think the head of christianity actually is the emergence of the person
nicholas you really ready to about if you think about christianity and the other religions the eastern religions what is it that distinguishes christianity when they find so much that doesn't distinguish christian and so i'm actually international present in the huge from especially when i met contemplative like russia and that the man of compassion so many other words
oh so much depth and richness and more personal and the eastern religions
but what distinguishes christianity is the emergence of the human person and a human person coming into the world the second circuit wasn't here as a new center in the world to a human person emerging as the center of the world which it's only illuminates the world and also trench punch figure and which generates our history because
thousand years
but what happens is that we gotta kind of polarization that kind of split
so that the individual gets flipped against the community the individual gets flipped against the culture the subject or split the can be object to be smart and so he blamed for literally thousands of years of that kind of split like which is increased too drastic like
more on time
never parents seem to me to be the people who speak for the person has mixed with the subjective to this picture very subjective against an objective run a trash can change and and impersonal and empty now whether that object rather with assumption of on and or whether it's a church the poets are the ones whose
speak for the experience of the heart speak from their personal experience that which has been personalized that which has to come to the him an individual has to resonate in the human person otherwise it's not real for them if it's not experienced not real friend mentioned sound very familiar today we've been so many young people especially
i feel that that guess they can't experience it it wasn't real christianity is fine but it doesn't mean anything can maybe because it's not mind because i don't experience that because it doesn't biodegrade inside me it hasn't become real and my own personal experience even higher respect to your that show off
mr of many other things as well
so the key for today a competitive by the communication seems to be that personal experience the personalize it and that's what the poets are about it
they seem somehow to become the the price of personal experience the bros of subjective experience against everything to carry on there's so much of a protest in the modern poets was already there in an automatic post unite against a kind of mechanical universe against the newtonian universe so on
the blake about that

clovers the mainstream of western poetry as long ago left christianity behind mom and i never go left the church behind the time and may have a going to below it of christianity but but not the the entered rock mystery which left behind because of change impersonal it would seems to have left the
hide the person to have squeezed out from other personal jokes the the experience and will turned into you know that hated word institution and shot reynolds resurrect that have a bad found an average doctrine and dogma and our reasoning seem negative why should they be negative why has this polarization put a shadow
for one of that shadow that's how to reality and why hasn't called doctrine and dogma and institution are going to totality just like pulling the bones out of a baby and i'm of course the bombs or headphones on my the bones are distasteful but that's because we've been pulled out of the body because we are supposed to be part of something larger than that
where at which the person is not really separated from the totality the person is not really like to tomorrow
the new testament and the post emergent a personal explanation mergers which inseparable from criminal explain
the the growth of the person in baptism a new both of the person than the experience of that number of each match of the spirit is inseparable from the community you can which is if those people were growing together which is it when you were born you were born women experience that was rarely wrong that at the same time is a share of expensive same time virgin experience extreme
when the split hadn't happened with
what happens pretty fast and really areas of to learn long history of let's pick
another revelation that nowadays
the personal awakening become somehow the goal of life instead of the beginning of life
could actually be the end of our life was not meant to be an experience with ourselves and then of our lives is not meant to be somehow relevant experience with all that's meant to be the gift of our lives just as events for jesus i think we experience is meant to be at the beginning
the awakening the initiation and this post to be that at an issue that isn't the beginning and number here but today because the personal becomes so precious because become so threatened that becomes the actually a girl about and the every part is forgot the other part which is giving oneself the other plant which is
and jesus terms a way of the crash and percentage of christianity is about and which christianity has often
he emphasized so much that the person i seem to get squeezed out that the awakening one hundred okay and people turned against it he throw it away so after that enlightenment after that awakening after that growth after the experiential emergence when there's something else then there's something else to follow and that's the whole way
way that crashed teachers in the gospel
want to talk about that in terms of the mystery of the cross with the mystery of the currents which actually emerges as the form of the person i think as the form of the person the one of the person i think is is quaternary the person is crucial farm and his family and like to find that out logo first amendment
restaurant and then channel poets who come up with that business out of the enchanted of and church
how can i talk a little more about history had been thinking about the beginning a lot lately the beginning of christianity because electorate analogy the big bang and i've used it before it now as you move back towards the beginning interest as you move back towards the beginning the universe you you
you get em true what would you call it the direction of increasing energy and increasing simplicity but the further packet move towards the beginning towards the moment of with a bag of interesting nanosecond is they will check the hatter you have to get that is the higher the energy level is a faster the subatomic
particles have to go to collab run away to produce those conditions okay you have to move into an area of extremely high energy and as you do things simplify the laws of nature they can somehow to choose to correlate they become sure and scientists smoke of it that maybe there's on
the one principal them maybe those i'm in one one and they've been there's only one force when you get all the way back there and the way back to will be getting and the analogy with christianity is is very close i believe that as you go back towards the mystery of the new testament you go back into an area of high energy be back towards the intercostal fire on a lot
are the things that are meaningless for as by meaningful in at that temperature at that temperature they are makes sense right but anything cool roof and vagina thousand objectifies to and then are we can do is analyze that for that after we lose the fire
but as i move through that beginning you also move into a practically infinite simplicity where everything becomes one and match what you find them the new testament which that kind of fusion
before the first discriminations and only the to call it the eternal distinctions are there but within a primal unity
now the thing about that is that you knew when you get back where you don't understand it because you are in you can't get it out incredible you can't objectified but to merge that i think our aperture here are objectification and participation all right
as we move forward we naturally tadic try to get a grip on which happened to us we naturally try to get a grip on the mystery to the extent that we get a grip on is not the mystery of and where are chatting
to the extensively really grass christianity objectively geometrically and essential that really theological today okay to an extent that we get it out there we can see it and we can teach her to never could have gotten we've got something else why because we're outside of
because you can't get it in your mouth and speak it the only thing you can do you can be it and somehow communicate that communicate your shirt or something like that now i'm not saying it well but showed the honoring with back to that beginning a to back towards you as if it were too hot to face or something like that hillary the packers by backing towards it
and has you do that things gradually get indistinct
now for once you a back away from the scientific completely attractive kind of theology to a chef financial field have to back away from a shoe a few energy which is all out there in front of you and all and the books and completely clear that to something worthy of the boundary lines are beginning to that
fade and work the first principle is really a unit to epistemology the first principle of really a unit of knowing an edited reality show back into that the packed through the centuries back into that wisdom theology of say four hundred five hundred six hundred years ago but then you go back to little further and you find you
have to take another step
there's this woman catherine like grandmother go to book about this kind of god for us she says at a certain point the trinity was lost for the trinity will laptop in itself the three divine persons were with that a bad mood scholastic theology for instance and terms of relations between them but hair was the trinity of the three purse
tions revealed in the new testament him their action upon us in the communication of god to rush in their relationship tourists he only were that will ruin know the father and the world in the spirit is in participating okay is in there
expression of god tourists their communication of bad tourists as prior on which were young for very and and in the words and concepts from saw the real knowledge of there so that's backing away from distinction passing away from clarity again to says that they can approach century that had a moment and that trinity
and mystery of the three persons was clear and to participate participated now
clear and still participated there's that none that magic management as you turn the map and the focus was just read and was moved to class not too far
but then you still have to move further back because as remote a little further back you discover that you don't have a distinctive eternity so much you have a trinity which is related to us so closely get into paternity and the figure of the grocery with them that's what you'll find them urban age
yeah the bad the word the spirit and ourselves
and somehow they're inseparable at that point because what the incarnation means worth the christ event is diffusion of those the conversion of are being with the trinity so that we were brought into the quantity were brought into the communion of god commanded a good three and so somehow there's an alien as
a stranger there's an adapted for in that three okay and it becomes a paternity and then from comedies you will have your back towards the it's focus tasha not sure their own age and then yeah the us about two hundred i do that then you have to back further to protect your that side of the ocean but still a diagram still a picture and as your
back further you will lose that to and you move right into the new testament and you were right into administration right into baptism
whatever the planet of the settlement holy spirit and you say the names of three persons that there were four points out there in that brush your back into the mystery of the crotch and you are the fourth of the cross you rather the with press that you probably don't even know it
you don't even know it because it's purely experiential it's purely participated it hasn't been objective a to do it hasn't turned into a clear at the other people like experience in it's reality that you know bed and that's what happened to you and that's why they've been tarnished people in the name of the the feather on the federal or this girl
zhang with a sign of the garage and and that's why they shaped their baptismal fonts and then farm and shot but it was a mystery because it was not objective somehow it resonated with the figure of the gross but it was not an objective picture on the world and there's not anything like that electrics are primarily during the new testament went back
back to the point of experience the point of the event to big bang into like where it's one thing which you can no longer articulate you can only speak about where you have been you can only speak about that has happened to and that's what don't but you can new testament to our digital i having that first letter of jam
best patient and much coming straight out of it that's coming straight out of the furnished with that original moment and sure everything is all melted together and then fresh federal time and the photos any differentiation merely differentiation is within the unity within economy differentiation of face and that differentiation of jesus and and bad and
a little church that's all within the minute
and i started with them to the veterinarian history will take a nice this is a terribly cramped diagram that what i wanted to do it showed it to histories and what wrote about but i'm kind of to the structure of these conferences this is backing towards the price to them okay and as we back
toward the distorted as if the temperature of arising here as if you were getting back into industry and so somehow the reality from reality quotient to something like that was right you're getting back into the reality of that aspect of it as you move in this direction your objectifying so this is the direction of ca
objectification and this was the direction of participation or right
here it's terrible participation in thing which they that person's but of the baptism the the the moment of the early community to the first the day after pentecost something like that and then that participation gradually diminishes and there's more and more objectification of with necessary
not only i'm thinking not only theologically last twelve and every other week so it begins to be an institution obligations road that's another planet objective by the church from that an issue a total mystery begins as it were the lappa begins to cool and to take form to afraid to throw that to form of the body the comment
volcano which objectify but as it does you somehow get focused on that objectification and somehow the memory of the phones of the mystery the participated in history gradually page enter and as you move away from them now i think the
that's what have to put a very early point and that history of the church and then of course the mystery is always present so it's always coming through but it gets more and more bail until the modern talking on there're many failed between hustler totality of that that an original mystery mystery of with the sheriff
call it the grace to when do we think of christianity and can prevent because that's what a world where there's something that happened
there was a biggest thing that ever happened do we think of christianity as an event i think we've got a computer you're going to events from happening they begin to see it that way and not a not a structure not just to truth isn't truth okay but there's something dynamic the other end of this was in order to the person because one
history is this as it were
gradual disappearance of the christ mystery as we begin to objectify mystery at less than less participated in chemistry and of course i'm exaggerating making things right and big big bold lines me the other side over here is the emergence of my personal
the emergence of the individual person but loan gradually and a subjective experience okay
but then gradually the emergence of the present which is what on the individual but personal once again come you looking and in america we had this big they carry of what i call objectification are duels like where participation has the old participation as many clips as law
largely been veiled and last and you think of your religion and something out there and maybe between you and god mediating got to the church itself begins to look like
gradually that gives way to a new participation but which is coming through the isolated individual at first and that's what we ever more poets amount of poets they're coming out of the often an awful christianity they're coming from christianity which has been through all of battles
the counter reformation time okay and sometimes through puritanism on everything so it's really been squeezed to spend money pulled through the because need that make while with and has come to the needle god and the way when it comes out now is purely through the individual experience but not even in the name of religion anymore
that is that fashion see because the think christianity is about the emergence of the person that about the recreation of the person in the center of the world which happening there is the person is resonating with a mystery with that crushed event without even the name of christ for that seems just like an autonomous individual lol
times and that's what you get very large role in the poet there are we discovering the mystery to the rediscovering it in the form of the human person and through the subject of experience of the human person against all kinds of objective doctrine or dogma and and church institution and charm
the the bitter bitter middle of this thing the opposition that happens here is where the most objective and as the hardest digits you have institution put it against individual
institution as if that's what the church were pitted against individual as if that's what the person but the person is not just individuals and churches not just institution and those are two as it were to guam slanders when a a twisting a distraction of the and
reduction of the reality of the church the other a reduction of the reality of depression and they're coordinated so one goes with the other interpreters that know much rather than individual i can't stand the institution and i don't know that the church is much more than the institution and i don't know that i'm much more than individual
so we somehow pivot around this point of of the purely objective of knowing things object and natural science fiction
but what happened to you feel the event disappears the dynamism just in the original promise disappears we go back to something like but poor fellow toilet or a bunch of the world a cosmic order which is a fixed term that a fixed over the tire occasion with only lives about a shock church has got look the last
we're just kind of damage five the in saudi arabia
but after a while but we do as we come back to a structure which happens to be alive rather than a life which also has destruction janet okay
so if you go back to the kind of fixed order which really doesn't permit the person to breathe that doesn't prevent the person to be to be born
and then that one with the modern time the west gives way to another fixed over which is that of science okay they go from one objectified order which is a religious one to another one which is second
now scientists part of it but a lot of the governmental thing the other institutional thing that the modern world or festival and even then even the a capitalist to science or they become in which we all work that's come back into those objective things which in some way by fixed and if someone who are throttling
again the president giving a person from day paul and then we get the poetry come along and somehow breathe that arrow the person want together and bring it to like but it's not only to poetry the reason why now
i bring them up is because i want them and i smoke because they do that with a kind of subjective too early
he in a matter add-on plan to those strange moments much poetry switch on psychological change translate i've got a ever existed before i like to look for some kind of principle or with purifying itself
i thank you to good as it were almost the principle of the spirit on a human level but it's also the principle of pure subjectivity of the person looking at
which think sometimes a different sensors of scripture different interpretations of scripture and i guess is not permitted to a lot of your throat fashion stuff like desert with a literal level of scripture of the purely unit to contemplative mystical of with scripture but didn't you train them to others there's
what they call it the opening the allegorical for the level of christ and of the church of the doctrinal local of scripture i'm interpreting scripture but then there's a personal the the personal collection it was because the truck a logical sense with the morals and where everything that was in christ is reproduced
in you in your own experience and in your own experience
somehow it's not a matter what believing in something that back there and out there because out to is a distortion talking like that but it's a matter of personal experience in which that mystery and life of christ has become your family
now you're a contingent on foot crest on the twenty first century he's a he's been reading a book by with a masters in houston houston about levels of psychic experiments after i talk about for like one click around the center sorry that your such experience okay one
call them misteri that's purely spiritual rich friends where everything is in the one zero
that's unit of experience but it makes me most to go to other
the collective unconscious for the level of myth pick the color firewall genetic level
the level of myth and a lot of doctrine check that but you were talking them and this is the level of your personal experience and you're your personal our conscience because the phylogenetic know now he correlate that for those poor such an inscription on the home before that bottle this
sensory that sense experience the opposite of that the diametric opposite would be purely spiritual from africa
which is unit which can go with multiple and experience and between the flu are these are these two other so this is equivalent to the christ i interpreted the christ level of interbreeding of the word this was equivalent to your own experientially interpretation of the word in which you as it were our in
you are experiencing that life of christ we are experiencing that that like david when an negative and whatever it is wave here the termination pride can you interpret in terms of bridge
there are examples we could use for but what i'm gonna to say is it what we're getting in the modern poets and every the romantic touch is this the recovered but not in a religious way out of a religious language
it's the purely personal level of the human person which they've become the voice for which poetry becomes the voice of course in a secular language and secular sphere protect secular character
and because this sub has become to objective because there's a polarization will split and this is no longer acceptable to so somehow they refine this until some that all mystery time to squeeze itself with this orifices of went through that purely personal experience and two dimensional code
that's another way to put her
oh what what you find i think need mine and coach for sometime it's not show significant for a charm shake as insignificant how's the emergence of the person and the emergence of the person and a very deep and total way
the experience of a person who's autonomous that is true fully conscious and national creative and in the act of consciousness or contemplation and london the actor of creation creativity know lewis has so much about the and poetic exp
source for the act itself
that that person is somehow live have made the image of god but person somehow as realizing the promise of of human human being that is the mystery some marriage and as forced itself ruler even without very foreign shaming shaming side of a reality of the world so
i'm some of these poets and off the your religious many of them have rejected christianity and a sam rejected our village but they've rejected the hammer blog good thing and then they try to find it somehow within themselves because they can't help it because there's nowhere else to go i don't mean there's nowhere else to go but doctrine but a particular structure it like
principles there's nowhere else to go than the realization of the human person which is what jesus brings into the world okay which is what jesus brings forward in the world with christianity is about and church twelve reproducing itself from within
schaefer's anything are specially cover here
a few things i'd like to live with one
well quit one is well these two history
the history of the crash to bed and it's gradual becoming luck participative and or norwich not participate and experienced and or something out there outside of and therefore it's not the question of and or fifty nine better there's some kind of structure to thing that's the thing it's a now rather than
bird looking so there's that history and then the possibility somehow we mentally are backing into the mystery and losing ourselves into something will go out of directed charismatic baptism and holy spirit that's what that's about trying to recover the totality of that initiation
not as an end and as a beginning because all we needed that for contemplation is about was moving towards that point the point of initial promise not of the end of life but those are beginning to book because that's the place to come from because that's really your center
and then the other history which is the emergence of the person usually cover from the whole religious work cut off from the christian faith
but the person which is is some as in itself at least signifying that much christ came to break to signify where the imagination
that's the corrigan back here from the beginning was the heart and the new testament there if it was the contemplative to look for money on the bottom and and much by the greek tradition what does it offer their imagination for the poet
the imagination
it's something which is not where we headed back towards the beginning an inward toward the center but it's why an outward towards the world and forward towards the net imagination move forward and tries to create something which is underway and they hear about a lot of our imagination
and for for some elements that into the heart of the person that's the the core on the promise of chairman of human reality approach to really understand what i mean much unless we can realize that sometimes in that active imagination and that political experience you have the deepest experience with
a had ever heard of their own shops in the own personal and that's the i was working for them and because they were talking with people the needlessly kind of gleaming signed that can do refer to ourselves the console i can crack the michelle of wrong thing happens to get to the center especially because red born in the same time when so
i'm out sooner or later everything has to come through our own experience we have to recover that that level of participation of experience and about that the modern generation is route the younger generation is right it's got to be experienced that's got to be participate in smaller like that's not enough for to be outside channel for somebody tell you that have an hour charge

something very simple and match with christianity was in the beginning and that's what it is at its core as a one point it matter of believing a bunch of things i'm doing a bunch of think it's a matter of being one thing and that's what you are okay it's a matter of being at home and discovering what you want at home and then
everything else on public for that
