If you’ve ever wanted to see things differently and discover a brightness even in the seeming darkness all around, then do we have the Book of Soul show for you.

Today I’ll be talking with Mark Nepo, spiritual writer, poet, philosopher, spiritual artist, the author of the New York Times #1 Best Seller, “The Book of Awakening” and all-time favorite spiritual author of mine, and the author of a brilliant, beautiful new book, “The Book of Soul”

And that’s just what I want to talk with him about today, about Covid-19, protest, instability, apparent darkness, and what in the world it means for the evolution of our soul. 

Key Points Discussed:

  • What do you see going on in the world today with the pandemic and all the chaos everywhere? (03:33)
  • Getting unstuck  from grief and accepting that the world has changed (03:49)
  • The purpose of suffering in exhausting us of our differences and that of love in awakening us to how we are at heart the same (11:17)
  • Moving through our fear instead of obeying it so we can allow love to move us towards the miracle (15:27)
  • Overcoming fear and pain by enlarging our sense of things (19:00)
  • Wholeheartedness and inviting in our shadow at this time (20:32)
  • Listening to honest friends who can call us out when we’re wrong (24:00)
  • Liberating ourselves by wearing sandals instead of needlessly carpeting the earth (27:09)
  • The uselessness of our propensity to judge each other (31:01)
  • Looking with wonder and reverence at the incredibly positive opportunity for something greater at this time (34:58)
  • What in the world is a prison tree? (37:17)
  • Why he chooses every day whether to be known as a jew or not (45:20)
  • Truth and kindness and how they are our constant teachers (50:04)
  • Looking at hope as no matter how things turn out they will have meaning (52:27)
  • Avoiding the distancing of each other in our hearts despite having to practice caution and social distancing (01:01:02)
  • Being who we are completely with each other, not holding anything back, and making the most of our time together (01:02:43)
