But what about the bicameral mind? And the voices in our heads, that we miss now?

Just listened to Pema Chodrin explain theism as a babysitter and hope addiction...nontheism = relax with what is, truth is inconvenient, suffering is part of life, much more grown up

On looking into Catholic school teaching, they do require certification. The Lutherans can't pass a simple reading, writing, math test. You need a 2.5 gpa to teach at a Lutheran school. I don't remember bogus science being taught at Catholic school in the 70's. The nuns were educated women and a buf...

the romantic movement was all about holding balance.....yet in the program I am in they see it as everything, and so people dismiss it (including me at times). Yet Einstein and current neurobiology support the brain needs that shift, side to side. Classical education and the arts to absorb and cross...

I went through all the church rituals as Campbell did, and haven't been back since..so maybe that was the intention? At the time it was weird to live in a different medieval/70's world, but I have taken that habit of stepping out and aside with me. Not going along with things and I know I will be OK...
