Again, in the calm before the storm of love and abundance, I’m trying to publish as much helpful literature as I can, to aid the newcomers who are expected in large numbers in the not-so-distant future.
The book I’m writing now draws on research from the early 1980s on restorative listening, a specific type of listening designed to help people through an upset.
A distinction made in 1987 caught my eye. I’d entirely forgotten about it, but it has more power now, given all the learning that’s happened between then and now.
Buddhism is a religion predicated on detachment, renunciation, inner peace, and enlightenment. Buddhist teachers encourage their students to look within and become aware of what sustains the ego that keeps them focused on the outer world.
