EPISODE 090: Love: A Journey Away From Absolutes and Expectations: Christian Grindstaff

In this continuation of our conversation with Christian about, Where Love Comes From.  We begin where we left off, and quickly move into our parents, raising kids, and the meat of letting go of absolutes and expectations.

Christian is a natural critical thinker, learner, who candidly and clearly shares his journey of growing to understand love.  Romance, religion, experience, science, and psychology all give us definitions of love, but is there a definition that makes sense for all of us?

EPISODE 031: Let's Get Weird - Mystical Experiences and Confessions: Seth Taylor

We chat briefly about Joel Osteen’s brand of happiness, spirit animals, seeing angels and mystic beings.  Seth has some fascinating ideas of how and why we created a leader like Mark Driscoll, and why many of us hunger for ideologies, religions, and dictators.

There may be wounds we are medicating.  I know I have many.  It takes work to find the wound.  But in finding the wound, we can find the healing so that we stop using alcohol, drugs, sex, porn, religion and other things to cover and medicate ourselves away from living lives of freedom...
