The Importance of Purpose and How to Find It, My Skepticism of Pop Spirituality, Breaking Up with God…

Today’s Teaching:


“Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won’t be the victim of needless suffering.”

From: The Four Agreements:
A Practical Guide to Personal Freedom, A Toltec Wisdom Book

1. Joe Wilner: The Importance of Purpose and How to Find It
“When we are able to connect with a sense of purpose it adds significant value to life. Research has revealed that a sense of purpose is actually related to increased psychological well-being and can help people recover from and cope with stressful life events.”

2. Tarini Awatramani: My Skepticism of Pop Spirituality
“Judging them for their credulity, however, I could not escape the fact that my own skepticism about meditation was conversely the result of similar misconceptions. One of the worst things you can be is a victim of your own biases. So I talked to two authorities on the ancient tradition, in my search for answers to these common meditation myths.”

3. Sarah Sentilles: Breaking Up with God
“I couldn’t stand being around God at church, but when we were alone, things were still good. I was sure the version of God I loved was the real God. I was like the wife who convinces herself she’s the only one who truly knows her husband. All that other stuff–the drinking, the sleeping around, the bravado, the lies–that’s not who he is. That’s who other people think he is, but they don’t understand him because they can’t really see him.”
