We have a notion that what is really alive is Presence.  Presence responds rather than reacts.  That part of the wisdom teaching that responds will change every moment in harmony with what is in front of it.  That part of wisdom teaching that is concept will collapse.

 

We also have a belief in continuous (and slow) evolution, that even the Grand Canyon was worn down one grain of sand at a time.  That view makes us very complacent.  I lived in the west and in the mountains and looking at the evidence it becomes clear that the carving of the earth happened in mega-events, not one grain of sand at a time.  In that 1000 year flood enough rocks and bolders were pushed by the torrents that they carved major channels overnight.  I have seen mountains soaked and turned into jello and fall in hours.

 

Our society is in for some big changes, even that we don't believe can happen.  Power structures that took centeries to build can come down in weeks.  They won't rebuild in weeks though, so it won't be pretty.  For this I say that wisdom teaching is in for some enormous changes.  I will be here to participate.  Thank you John Sherman.

Actually I remember quite well the first interview with John,how impressed I was by it.
After so many years this new conversation was very touching. I certainly will check out River Ganga too.
