Being a spiritual teacher is a lot like being an alarm clock on a Monday morning.

We mostly live in our thoughts,
and our thoughts are mostly what we’ve been taught.

In other words, what we believe to be true that isn’t so
is worse than what we don’t know we don’t know.

“Savvy?” I think I need to call in Captain Jack after that tongue-twister.

It’s a little bit like confusing facts with opinions. The problem is “our” beliefs are manipulated by others ~ from politicians to toxic relationships partners ~ without our consent. Can we pick out which ones don’t belong? It’s like a game on Sesame Street.

REFRAIN:

is worse than what we don’t know we don’t know.

Detangling what is actually true from the rest is stage 1 of awakening. Stage 2 is even harder: living a life that follows the truth, in a world bewitched by beliefs. Stage 3 is empathy & compassion for all of those who don’t know, others who don’t want to know, and others still who will get angry at those who do know. Where is Captain Jack when you need him?
