Some see our most important issues as social ones. Hunger. Injustice. The gap between rich and poor.
Others see the lack of ethics in leadership as most pressing. While for many, our environmental crises supercede everything else.
Here in Brazil, we acknowledge it all as evidence of our inversion. And then … we go a little deeper.
Today on Thinking with Somebody Else’s Head, we’ll look at our relationship with the deepest part of ourselves and our connection with eternity, even God.
First of all, thanks for all your wonderful e-mails over the past few weeks. Great to hear from you as always. firstname.lastname@example.org
We’re doing a lot of things here that could be of interest to you. Our online course, Trilogy Online, is almost up and running. Keep listening for updates, or drop me a line and I’ll let you know personally when it’s officially online.
We’re going to be holding a great event next year – 2008 – on the True American Dream. What were those Founding Fathers dreaming about anyway? And was it just a dream? I don’t think so. Norberto Keppe, the inspiration for all we do on this Podcast, has fond feelings for the true American values to this day.
We’re going to marry the American dream to the dreams of South America, too – kind of a Pan-American dream maybe – and talk about how all of these greatest dreams of humanity are possible. And there are substantial means to get there present in Keppe’s work. Particularly in understanding the root causes of our massive difficulties – our topic today in a way – and providing some specific tools to get there, like new business and residence structures.
That’ll all be occurring next July 4, 5, and 6, 2008. Make a note.
You know, Keppe’s work is different from others in this fundamental way: where many psychological, scientific, even philosophical orientations tell us that we’re in a process of evolving from lesser to greater – from the primal ooze in biology, through many lifetimes in Eastern thought, from the need to develop our self-esteem in Western pop-psychology – Keppe proposes that we already live in perfection, in eternity, in paradise. But we reject it. This is a profound shift in how we understand reality, and I’ve asked Claudia Pacheco, vice-president of Keppe’s International Society of Analytical Trilogy, to help me penetrate this idea. Join me for her illuminating and provocative thoughts.
