As Jonathan (my son) said when he was tiny “What’s going on, and what’s the meaning of it?” Or as Wade (one of today’s guests) wondered as a teen (and many times since) “What’s going ON here!?!?!”
It can be tremendously confusing – not to mention agonizing – to awaken to the reality that being a conscious human includes the conflicting extremes of pleasure and pain. Is it possible to live peacefully with awareness of the paradox that life is both heaven and hell?
Don’t get your hopes up – I don’t have the answer. Which is why my new year’s resolution for 2010 was to watch more TV.
Thank you Thor, Megan, Aven, Mara, Aron, Wade, Sarah, Jonathan, Bobby, Nicole and Sam for playing along with me, and for contributing your thoughts about and encouragement for this episode. You’re squarely on your way to Tshirt glory!
