We hear a lot about awareness, enlightenment, or awakening - what do we really understand by those terms and how does that integrate in the day to day life of the average person as they go to work, feed the dog, and navigate hectic traffic on a crowded city street? Is awareness all about that mountain-top experience but of no real practical benefit? Do we all need to find a lonely wooden cabin and retire there for the next 30 years in solitude and bliss?
What if awareness is not what we have been led to believe? What if God is not as complicated as we think he is? What if God is actually nice? Perhaps the human race, through our matrix of shame, brokenness and determined efforts to appease a deity (any deity will do) have complicated the simplicity, joy, and freedom of walking in divine love.
In Steve's ongoing fashion of 'thinking outside the box' here is a patchwork of parables and reflections to help draw us away from the shadowy mausoleum of religious angst.
