The Stories We Tell Ourselves
We are telling ourselves stories all the time. We re-create our past. We worry/have expectations about the future. And we tell all sorts of stories about ourselves and others. Is this helpful?   “You can no longer deceive yourselves as sincerely as you did before. You have now got the taste of truth.” -Ouspensky

Alicia Marley came to the podcast. We talked a little bit about Buddhism, but mainly we discussed Facebook, having a sense of wonder, and Geocaching.

The Three Essentials
Great Faith, Great Doubt, Great Determination.  Trying to practice without all three of these present is like having a table that's missing a leg.
