The Promise and the Problem of our Words: The Most Important Thing I’ve Learned Since High School
How very many words we use, but are our words descriptive or creative? Are the words we use a response to our world, or is the world a response to our words? And why does it matter? Rabbi Ted explores the confusingly powerful nature of our words.
The more spiritual our awareness, the clearer our perception that all of us share a single Life, that we breathe a universal breath. When we realize this inclusivity, we naturally act compassionately with ourselves and with others. Avoiding polarization and demonization, we act for the betterment of all. This is the essence of ethical monotheism: the ethic naturally flows from honoring the One Life we share.
