Don't Fix Yourself


Contemplatives tell us we all make a classic mistake: we desperately try to fix ourselves when, instead, we're offered a powerful road to change that both works and takes far less effort.

Dave Schmelzer, with lots of stories, looks at biblical wisdom around waking up in this way and then incorporates powerful insights from teachers like, from within Christendom, Anthony De Mello and, from outside of it, Charlotte Joko Beck.

Mentioned on this podcast:

John 12:24; Isaiah 30:15-16

Charlotte Joko Beck, Everyday Zen: Life and Work

Anthony De Mello, Awareness: The Perils and Opportunities of Reality
