« Time to get mad and suspend Measure 37 | Main | Lars Larson blames James Kim for taking a wrong turn. But not George Bush. »

"As I frequently say on my Church of the Churchless blog, I’ll believe it when I see it. Not before.

Yesterday I wrote that for me the changing face of faith “means moving away from looking at life through spread mental fingers, believing in this but not in that, refusing to consider the possibility of X while embracing the hypothesis of Y.”

How do you feel beleiving this way? Are you getting better results in your life with this thinking?

Tom, yes, I feel that I am. I'll less dogmatic and judgmental. I flow more with life, better accepting what comes along, because I don't expect that I have a special relationship with "God" (or whoever)--who is supposed to bring me what I want.


I totally agree with Marcel. You should call that Bill guy and get your own show. A very smooth, cogent performance. Made up for not getting to hear you give satsang anymore. And they both said, "you know" quite a bit which should be a "know, know" for radio show hosts.

Very good, Brian. And informing, too! I agree very much with R Blog about the 'cogent' bit. However, I didn't get any sense you were 'performing' ... unless, of course, you're so good it's completely undetectable.

Performance: the continual performance of a single task carrying out, execution, discharge, accomplishment, completion, fulfillment, dispatch, implementation; formal effectuation.

Use of "performance" meant to be as complimentary as "cogent."
