As I have traversed down the road of Losing Religion, my former life as an American Christian Pastor has haunted me. How I used to consider myself a teacher for others, someone who knew the way. Someone who could be followed. I fear these things now. They have caused me to resist being a leader, a guru, a teacher for others. Even though many have called me these things, Josiah shows me another way.
The way of a guide. It's a passive way; it's a path in which we all head down when we follow our desires to be better and different humans. We all are given guides along the way, perhaps through books, relationships, or chance meetings. Even this podcast community. Guides come into our lives and leave our lives as we traverse the different paths we embark.
Who or what are your "guides" right now?
