"We're going to wrap it up. Here's the person is there? Maybe secretly I don't know a type that you wished you work yes nine. I Love Nines. I wish I were a nine without any doubt langone. I've got a nine wing when I can trust that part of me. I'm very happy. I love the ninth in my life I love. The weather moved through the world. Michael Cal- calm and peaceful. You are how nice how nice to be inside your brain ambitious rushing in pushing effort the rest of you know. I love the ninety two although I think I always secretly kind of wanted to be a seven. Because they're so fun but that's the three in me wanting to be popular right so I am because they're my opposite. I'm so serious. There's bide hearted. Yes yes okay. And some kind of the flip side of that. What part of your personality do you enjoy most about yourself? What do you love most so I love down Sam our time thinking I guess I have to say this going to sound very vain that I realized I have a gift of writing. It was early on a gift of teaching when I was on the road for forty five years and it comes like your gift does to you. It comes almost effortlessly when you're in that flow and you're trusting it and allowing it like mind better books falling. Up Breathing Underwater Universal Christ. I hardly wrote them. They were just there on the page in a rather short time open them and I said when did I write that? That doesn't sound like me. I mean I'm not the in clever. I guess it's when I'm in my flow and it has something to do with talking about are writing about things that are going to help other people ask so great. Oh I love that rhythm. You just know you're in your lane windows at your back That feels so familiar to me because I love my work so much. Here's the last question they asked this last time. We asked everybody this. It's from Barbara Brown Taylor and you can answer it however you would like and it's an interesting time to ask it right now. What is saving Your Life Right now? That's nice when I know Barbara Brown Taylor. By the way won a wonderful love is saving my life right now while. I'm going to Mecca very mundane and it's my little dog opie. I'll be I mean. Everybody says this about their dog but is so excited about everything. Ages is so earnest. I wish I could be that ernest up everything. All the time. For the moment he gets up he jumps in bed with me and this one. He crawled out from under the covers and looked at me. It's time to get up when like you know I do I do. Oh I love opioid. That made me happy so happy that you said that. He's peeking through the door right now. Are you know who are you talking to lucky me? Lucky that I got to talk to you today. I told you this last time but I just want to say at one more time before I let you off the hook. Care Your work and your ministry and service has just mid the world to me and you've been a teacher for me. A mentor from afar for a really long time and I learned so much from you and what you have opened up in front of me spiritual possibility in front of me with unaware that I grew up. I didn't know we had permission to experience. God in the ways that you've taught me and I have found such life in it in such joy and such truth. I think what you gave me with some freedom and ungrateful because I wanted to be free. I just did not. Could you may be victory up. I mean every word. That's what the Gospel is supposed to be. It's for Freedom Sagan Love Sake unfor- laws hit thank you for teaching me. That and teaching stats. We love you and I am still in love talking to you and I'll just get on this podcast once a year. If you keep saying yes so just be prepared for that beautiful woman. Thank and now to tell us more about the music. You've been listening to in this episode. We hear from Composer Ryan O'Neal Aka Sleeping at last about the inspiration behind this piece so I was inspired to write songs based on the new Graham a few years after first being introduced to it by my dear friend Chris Arts and I was super skeptical at first about the whole thing as I have been with sort of any typing system which just feels like another way of really overly simplifying very complicated things but pretty quickly. I realized that the Ingraham is not that it is this deeply helpful tool for empathy empathy for ourselves and for others. It's a shorthand for understanding the motivations strengths or challenges of really everyone. We know so shortly after learning about the unique Graham it became this really personally helpful language in my marriage and in all of my relationships and so as I recognize that the gifts and the and the beauty of the Graham It kind of naturally found its way into my music and Miami. Graham songs actually are part of a larger series of music called Atlas which are songs that explored the origins of all things in particular human development. And at some point in the process of mapping out all of these different themes that I'll be writing about it just kind of clicked nine songs inspired by the nine types and that just felt like a really perfectly fitting puzzle piece into this whole project to mind riding. My one song was incredibly challenging because it was the first song and because it was the type I knew the least about the so did feel a little bit like diving in on the deep end but I buried myself in books and conversations about type ones and with type ones the thing that kept coming up in pretty much. All of my research was the idea of this. Inner critic that the type one wrestling and the word grace kept coming to mind in the context of my own inner critic grace felt like the word. I wanted myself and type wants to hear absorb the most because type ones are natural leaders. I wanted the song to feel assertive like an anthem. A rally song of sorts by hope for writing the song was to eliminate the inherent goodness that is in every type one that in their growing letting go that they feel the release and the exhale of grace.

"Him you talk about the other side of a one because we need the ones in the world to and what you bring to bear on. Our communities is good. There's a lot of beauty inside of it and once can be wonderful partners of course and can you talk about what a one looks like at his or her best when they're healthy and integrated and operating sort of out of their best spiritual now. Well when I first learned it from Father Jim he said our gift was serenity and I believe that's true when you stop making the imperfect world problem you actually become more serene than other people so I end up in many stress situations today even here on the staff. We have fifty people on the staff nine to steal founder. I don't have to do that much. I'm often the most calm. Just isn't that interesting is I? Don't need to save at any more. 'cause I've been wrong too many times about right. I don't think I've ever said it that way before I've been onto many times about being And I just leave my own first voices. My first has come from that EGO CENTRIC. One little boy who needs to be right. I don't think I need to be right anymore. I enjoy aided and that's a great freedom for the ones that are listening right now. Don't have as many years as you. Or they're newer to their own internal work in a different stage in their life. Maybe and they're loving what you're saying right now because that really I bet that sounds like freedom to a one who feels trapped in their own perfectionism all the time. That feels really lonely. Actually to hear you describe it like that kind of like a prison unable to relax into a thing. So if there's a one hearing you who's thinking I would love to be free of that particular portion of who I am and wants to grow which you best advice. Where did they start? How do you begin doing that work? Besides the obvious best teacher which is failure. That teacher is reliable should to that. What else could the one reach for? You've got to move. You know if you look at the diagram I of a two wing. Which is the heart space? We've gotTA move out of our gut which is over focused over convicted response to a compassionate heart response first of all toward ourselves. Because we're we're just as hard on ourselves as we are and other people that's important here we have to recognize. How true that is. I started critiquing myself in the morning while you gotTa do this. He didn't do that right yesterday. Richard now those voices are much less strong. But they're still there and when I can surround them with a bit of hard compassion forgiveness radically then and only then can I grant that same compassion to other people. I don't need to make them right now. I can see that to become a priest was almost the worst possible thing. 'cause we were given permission to make other people right Let's look at our professions after we become good at the Anti Gammon See. We did the right thing for the wrong reason. We're good at it but we're good at for not the best of reasons. That's a major humiliations. You've gotta suffer on the spiritual journey now. I really appreciate you explaining that. The energy for Perfect. Rightness is also internally directed that serves me that helps me love the ones in my life. Because sometimes you don't know that because a ones energy focused on fixing everything else and everybody else but just even knowing that that voice is inside your own head to and critical of your own could sell. That gives me such Tashin. Let me ask you this question for those of us who have a one in our lives were married to one. Where parenting one? We work with one when we find ourselves in conflict with a one. What would you say is the best strategy to resolve that conflict and to move forward in that relationship in a way that is healthy and loving toward the one that we love you know? Don't come back in a highly correcting boys. Well Joe that's one way to look at it. I wonder if we could look at it this way. Like all you need to do is preface it by some and the reasonableness of a one will hear you. 'cause we are after all said very reasonable but if you come in like a schoolmarm shaking the finger all we just can't hear it has we are being told were wrong. All we almost always were the oldest son our oldest daughter. I was the oldest son. We desperately need to please one or both parents. In my case it was my mother. Even though I was lying. Mother's favorite I knew when she was happy with little dicky ill and she wasn't Sarah and it was just so much more pleasant to have her and learn how to do it all the time but little. Did I think how much it was hurting me inside? When she came in those finger-wagging corrections and they all come back with anybody else. Doesn't your parents. Early voices are now. They tell us are held in the lower brain stem. And that's why they feel like the Voice of God you just get rid of them. They sound true right. That's where it should be. You know so true. I'm forty five and I still hear my parents voices in my head. I sure do what I heard you say right now that I found incredible. I'm not going to forget this. That was really really helpful. Is that don't forget that once are incredibly reasonable what a wonderful takeaway that approaching the ones in our life out of the atmosphere of these charged words and accusations are finger pointing but just kind of in this measured Safeway. What a great tool normally hear you really they will. That's great. I mean ask you this before we wrap it up here. I wonder how your work with contemplation has affected you as an any Graham one you know like one of the principles of course the contemplation. Meditation is to remain open right. Just accept what is as it is in the moment very present to the moment which isn't necessarily a one's strength we don't accept things on their face and so. I'm curious how those two practices if you will all your work around that beautiful intensive sort of energy has affected your any Graham wiring. I would say John in a major way because I experienced NAFTA experience. Not just have someone teach you that. It's the only way out of your prison it's twelfth steppers. Talk about the twelve steps. You know that I can't change. This wiring in my brain and contemplation changed my wiring were. I didn't need to be solved over focused about being right that I could be over focused in living in the now what ever it offered including when I don't like isn't that interesting. I is still intrigues me. That it's true but we are over like I can't walk and Chew Gum at the same time. And that's true of most ones. If I'm talking to you if someone but come to my door right now I'd either get upset that door right. Get upset at you because you're forcing me to split my side and I want to be with you right now and I think friends of often experience. That will Richard same little irritated when I approached him. It's because I was doing something else. And they pulled me away from it now. Up Friends who know me will just slide a little paper. You know Richard. We need to see it ten year beyond your appointment time or whatever but it sounds like a correction. There'll be this instinctive reaction I'm ashamed to admit I'm I'm still not that free for my ego that I feel this reaction to being corrected. My mother was an aide so when she corrected us it was a real correct service. A A appreciate that answer because I suspect that contemplation and meditation had really serve every number in the same way. I mean even I heard you saying that it really affected you. I think three when I can comb it all down long enough to be still into really quiet. Be Incredibly prayerful all those things that do not come easy to me at all. I'm go go go as you know. Do that. Such a doer. I worked so hard and I just think it's possible that I could learn that I am just already loved and Joe have to earn it and I don't have to hustle for it. I have to work so hard for. That doesn't come naturally. No it doesn't do any of us but it's especially hard for three operates out high performance principal and they just can't let God but at least you know it already with your head. Are you at express it as well as you did? Now as you get a little older it'll sync into your body in the your God in your muscle memory. I hope so. His can't work this hard for the rest of my life. I'm going to go out to sin but I've always been that way. It's so true that we kind.

"So my honor to welcome back to the show Father Richard War One of our favorite people. I'm my community. Just loves you so much and so thank you for being back. You're so kind now remind me. What City are we in? Yeah I'm in just south of Austin Texas rules the right door. That's right that's right and so it's a beautiful spring here in Texas. Thank goodness it is here to yes. Tell us a little bit about your quarantine. Have you been doing? I live in a little ways. I- Armitage. You're looking until right now. So I should be used to their spent. The motivation now is so much different than I'm doing okay. I've been working with the garden trying to catch up. In fact yesterday I finally caught up with all emails. I could leave such a good feeling so I'm doing fine thank you. That's wonderful about once. Every two years I hit the bottom of my inbox and I just can't believe it feels the chimerical every time. It happens very short-lived but asserts filling up again. Yes you were on a show just a little over a year ago but I wonder for new listeners. And those who didn't catch that first episode my obviously told them already about you and who you are and specifically your any agreement expertise which is what we're talking about today specifically but I wonder if right off the top. Would you mind talking for a about your personal history with the program for me? This is a tool. That's only been in my life for a handful of years and it's changed so much for me but you have had a beat on the any grab for decades just decades so I wonder if you can talk about sort of your origin story with any Graham at what it feels like for you to now just see the grim everywhere just its wildfire right now and when I learned him around nine thousand nine hundred seventy two. It was a big secret. I was a young priest newly ordained living in Cincinnati. I had a Jesuit spiritual director at Xavier University. I drive over there meet him. Maybe once a month or so at that time and I noticed after a while he had amazing insight on me. I thought he was reading my soul. You know I sat as much to him at one. Point said all this stuff and they sell all Richard. Let me tell you a secret. Now he was a part of the second circle K. If you know some of the history there was this group of Jesuits went down to the Rica answer in Santiago Chile. They learned brought back and sat around there. Recreation Room in Berkeley the Jesuit School of Theology and spread it to a little larger circle of JESUITS. Now just so happens. One of those now deceased father. Jim O'Brien kind. A good man. He was in that second circle. He's the one I'm talking to that I think is reading my soul. And he says well. I think you know we're not supposed to teach this now. This is real early period in America. It's only for spiritual director to spiritual director. That's you're going to be so I wanted to not just for your own enlightenment and awareness but so you can use it for others but you may not ride up you may not put it on cassettes. Which is what I was starting to that time. Cassette sounds like for you were boomer. I guess we are doing everything on cassette little by little lead me through it and let me see that I was a one. And this is why I can understand some any of your reactions or idealist. Perfectionists zealots with UNA. Save the world. WanNa Be Right. Which is one of our most horrible characteristic I've worked on it now for fifty years to try to WANNA be rough but its effect I for me. In an for the community of lay people I was pastoring in Cincinnati. I was able to talk to them about it and use it in House. Astra work but we couldn't publish it being a good one. I followed the roles. Didn't do it. Then I moved to Albuquerque where I am now in nineteen eighty six around that time the first major book on it came out. Helen Palmer and so I said well the secrets out if the secrets out. I think I can start talking about it. So in eighty seven eighty eight summer in the late eighty S. I made a set of related cassettes. No they spent CDs recordings at any rate and those went international so A lot of people heard it from me. First Time at that point they read it in. Helens Book and other wonderful books. I've gotten far more credits Invited to every conference since then. Because I'm so early in most people's memory that they think I'm more an expert than I am. I mean that they think all Richard will well I? I do know a bed that there's people now who are just doing our work. It's so developed developed developed in these fifty years. Yes it has so taking that just a little bit further for the very first episode in this series on the Graham. I had on your good friend. Suzanne's deal she re touched on. Just how ancient the India Graham system is which is fascinating. She didn't talk a whole lot about it. I wonder if for a moment you could tell us a little bit more about just how far back this thing goes because you know people who are just now catching the way. I've heard people say I love this new trend. I love this new personality assessment. But that's not at all true. This has been around longer than any of them all put together. And so can you talk about when it came about. And then how far back that went. Yeah some of it is in my book. I'm not pushed my book because many people written a much better book than minds out of date but I give a bit of the history there and the farthest back I think the roots of our is in Assyrian. Deacon does this sound as Tarik with a strange name. Yvonne Driest Ponti any. Who's studied the fathers of the Church has studied Ivanka's and he has originally his six passions. That keep you from being able to pray. No seven to get those will morph into nine and not. He's not calling the Anti Graham share somewhere. Well we know that remained at least in the Christian tradition. When I say as I mean it wasn't taught in the corner perish but monks and nuns would learn such things. Perhaps than it reappears strongly. Through a member of my own order I'm a Franciscan and in the thirteenth century on the island of New York was a state of ours called Raymond Lull L. U. L. L. The drawing is in my book in He. Now has the first sighting of what becomes the the circle that we've all seen a used for teaching purposes? And there it is you know. I don't know how it got from. Wagner areas dying in three hundred ninety nine to the thirteenth century. I'm not sure where is still trying to put some say it was the Sufis analyst Has claimed that that's true at their schools of spiritual direction. Rec- we're famous for seems to have maybe refine the language all of these things. We can't prove it does Adder doesn't JIM NEEDS TO SOME LINE. Then where strongly? Reappears is not till the eighteenth nineteenth century. I don't know exact dates that the Russian mystic Gert Jeff Jeff Develops a very well developed many things. It was through his tradition that several people put it together in the form. We know today call at the Anagram and one of the few places this is being taught was in of all places. Santiago Chile the ARETHA INSTITUTE. So that he's group of Jesuits went down to earnings and brought it back and you might not know this about the jesuits but one of their big gifts is what they call the discernment of spirits to help people know. Why are you doing what you do? What Spirit is guiding? I liked that. Language is very mature language. The way your parents I know.

"Pitchy said it doesn't matter they don't care because there's a language of the heart that immediately resin like something thing very jeep incited me as being spoken to somehow bypass the answers in the residence at names you that you know this. So I would say this I would say that the beginner Thomas Merton was the journal the crosses writing for beginners. He says that the Merlin says he's writing certain kinds of beginner and it's a beginner. Who begins at the beginning? which is you've been humbly accessed by God in which you can understand and so where I told people if you just stay with it like be patient with it and it's like music or poetry as a kind of repetition is not redundancy and let it Kinda Soak in and see where it takes you and I would say Thomas written once said let's face it? We're beginners all of our life really uh so I would say this is for beginners beautiful. I've a quick story My husband took me to divine ambush for our anniversary and that was the first my first interaction with the CAC and I was pretty deep into you to already.

"Jim Can you fill us in a little a bit between entering the monastery and then joining the living school. What what happened in between what happened between us it when I started going to direction to Thomas Burton He led me in the reading of these classical ticks. Sorry John of the Cross and what really struck. TUCK ME IS I was Super Thomas Merton just convinced so is in the presence. He was like lineage holder in the tradition going back to Christ all night in prayer thing thing and I would walk out into the woods and sit out in the woods and I Open Jonah Cross for the first time and I read the prologue to the the Santa Mount Carmel and it was the same voice ace. The like the death la-z-boys the mystical consciousness of Christ in the world. And so I just saw so immersed in the mystics sticks in that way so when I came out when they left the monastery I says how can I continue to live out here this interior life in the midst of the template of layperson in the world and So I continued with my my practice. Ah Indepth Study of the mystics and The teachings and then that's Rhode Mertens Palace of nowhere because I was a high school religion teacher. It's on Thomas. Mertens idea of ultimate identity true self and I started getting invitations to lead retreats around the country is still around yes and and It'll be around. I'm no longer around. And so that's really what started. I just got immersed because I think with the mystics are for people people the Cincinnati Sousa very beautiful and they can tell their profound but they're not easy but if you can get a little bit of help I stepping inside with. They're trying to help us understand. There's like an inner consistency to everything they say. And if you bring if you make the reading a kind of prayer the following of the Mrs can change your life really so. That's really what I'm attempting to do here. How to have a a an intimate utterly sincere heartfelt quiet opening up of a process who we can become comfortable but with the mystics and realize that in some ways what they're talking about are things that are already going within us? We've not been given a language to talk about it and I think that's an encouraging message to give to people think another reason. The book is so endlessly attractive. Is that title title. Is the whole thing. Your book is poetic. The way you talk is poetic the Palace of nowhere. I mean someone has so what does that. Of course. It's from him. Trump who from the Taoist sage trunks. It isn't from No. It goes expect to louts and the Dow de Ching and chunks and chunks of the Taoist sage trunks Said come with me to the Palace of nowhere. All the many things are one emerton was very struck by. He wrote a little book translations. Trump's soon as I heard that little phrase I thought what a lovely or was is it. A choice inspired Schweik Alice of nowhere. Yeah I love listening or being conversation with you all about the mystics because it just wells up so easily and falls out of your mouth and poetic words where I think the rest of us are running two references at times and Jim. I'm thinking specifically about about the space that you entered into the monastery and having that trauma with you and you just spoken so eloquently about how you've turned the mystics as inspiration spiratou and guidance for depth. What does that offer? What does training offered those who are experiencing trauma? Yes yes another big thing for me because where I wrote Mertens Palace of nowhere as a clinical psychologist and offered me a full scholarship repeating clinical psychology with family support if I would integrate the teachings of the mystics with mental health so into fourth theological seminary the graduate school there and got my doctorate and focused on trauma and went to therapy for my trauma therapy. And what do I think it is. And that's what I'm working on now really on this healing thing how to be a healing presence in an all too often traumatizing traumatizing tossing world. See especially if you yourself or traumatized and How do we think this touches everybody today because there's like an atmospheric trauma dissociation in the air? So I think with the mystics ours is this that is terrible as the trauma may have. I've been in this terrible as it is terrible. It's like being burned alive. It's just horrible. There's terrible trauma is there is is that in us it is undiminished unthreatened an indestructible. Because his that in you that belongs completely took and what you'll find a lot of people in their in their traumatizing journey without romanticizing. How scary it is how much courage it takes to walk like remembering things? You don't WanNa remember feeling things you don't in the presence of someone in whose presence it safe to walk that walk in.

"Podcast cast seasons of another name for everything besides the excellence and Beauty of your to co hosts what has been a surprising is in takeaway for you as you embarked on podcasting as a new medium for your journey. I mean for your teaching of others. Well I can and say I'm genuinely surprised at the level of affirmation validation encouragement. I'm getting it tells me we're living Hannah. Oural World Listens. Because there's even folks I guess I shouldn't say even but who said said I like the podcast better than the book and several have said that to me and of course that does nothing but excite me But yeah it and even that we can give them free. Sort of part of our Francis can message. You know that we're not in this to make money where in this to get the message out so now that Jim is able to do the same thing as just very exciting and anything I can do to back it up encourage validates Legitimate blasts I I think we're foolish not to go in this direction and to have such a master teacher is Jim as our friend and the all in the living school enough to see a sea is just as good as it gets really and can you speak to that a little a bit when I think of you know you start the center By yourself but then as you've delved into conferences and retreats you've brought in other teachers what what is that saying to you when you bring and other teachers To to be a part of a learning environment and community and then beyond is bringing other teachers what was it about Jim. that first sparked an interest and bringing him to speak to those. Who are listening to your work? When did we I have A? Here's what happened. I as you said you would rid mertens palaces also nowhere and we met on the road somewhere giving yes and then you invited me to the senator give a retreat nineties against the two conferences we to six narrow gate mix of following the missiles to the narrow okay and then we did intimacy divine ambush and then had I think those those are the big the two big Jim. Well Jim I just have so much in common. We're almost exactly the same age. We were both novices at the same time time in that year at crucial year before Vatican two began and religious life experience gave us a a sense of what I'm now calling order before the disorder came and even though we would question a lot of that order now it's still bill gave us well depth into the perennial tradition. So I always know when Jim Talks. I'm not just going to trusted busted. I'm GONNA like it. It's not like I need to censor check my God. He's way ahead of me. The most we can do is give give him a platform to say what he's saying and we've often said that he brings the heart to the living school. If if Cynthia's the head I know it's unfair and I'm the God he's the heart and we make a nice team. We really do so now. Oh to have a whole podcast is just something very exciting. Jim What was it like for you. and Richard asked you to be a part of the living school Well I heard that there were watching the living school. And there's going to be a gathering in Ceesay it's and Cynthia share that's right and As part of this process versus and then following that conference Then I I was invited to be part of the school. Would you want to join Cynthia. And of of course they said yes. So that's how it happened and it was just a natural fit for me just kind of work. It's been very lovely. Really the getting the head needed a heart. And so what you're saying I know I do feel that there's a kind of a Trinidadian Kinda Their energy between US synergy energy is true. Richard What do you think that Jim uniquely offers students that Are Maybe not in your particular wheelhouse or since his will house that they really can connect with at a deeper level experiential language and hard based without neglecting head and there are so few people who can do that We Catholics and I include in that. Vatican two liberal. Catholics never really picked up the The mystical level. It was more or less again moorhead knowledge. Because that's what Catholics were used to and It's it's if in my experience it's why wonderful these are many of my friends that can to liberal progressive well educated. Catholics athletes have not passed on the faith to the next generation. And I think Jim talks in a way. That's passable uh on the 'cause it's experiential knowledge it's convicting knowledge is knowledge that hugs tugs at the heart and and the body And he says it in such a simple often humorous way that makes him hard to resist. So Yeah what a gift that he discovered us and we discovered him. Hello Jim why is it that you were drawn to the mistakes and have been so dedicated to that path for me. What it was is that When I was fourteen years old Trauma going on in my home and In Ninth Grade Religion Class Class The Catholic school was attending The instructor mentioned talked about monasteries. At never heard of monasteries before and talked about Thomas Merton is so. I went to the school library that night. There was a sign of Jonas. Which is the journal Merton road is a monastery and when I read it maybe because of the trauma I don't know Biz so on right to my heart you know and it's like whoever wrote this book like my God you know it's the first one I read the sign of Joan? Yeah Yeah and he he In the opening page there he says he says as for me I have one desire the desire for solitude to disappear into the secret of God's face and I didn't know what it meant something in me like I thought it spoke to to me and so I started reading that book over and over and went to the four years of high school and I just felt called to go there. My master plan was I would go there. Sit mertens feet and he guide me into this thing. So that's how it happened for me. Yeah so can you share a bit about that journey. You said at you when you're done with high school. Is that when you left for casinos. Yes I finished high school. All the violence was still going running on and.

"I'm going to try. I'm going to try to separate about but anyway to get back to my story but I had this amazing privilege where I found myself at the table with Cynthia Brizo Richard Robert and James Finley and Cynthia in Richardson are chatting. And Jim can look at me and I looked at him. We Will Kinda Kinda struggling. Well I guess we're stuck together for this meal. Any I have a deep affinity for Thomas Merton so I was so excited to ask Jim. Oh my burning. Earning Thomas Merton questions and Jim was just very eager to respond and get some insight and wisdom and humor and you know put some flesh on the things that read and know about Tom's uh-huh burn and then the conversation slowly shifted because of Jim's poetic nature of just lowly new into the divine presence. Then all said that. I forgot about my hero. Thomas Merton and I was just having a very profound spiritual moment grace melwood James Finley which as we were saying is often what happens when people are in his presence or listen to his words he has his capacity to help you. See Your Life as that that very meeting place where God is showing up like polly Darcy's. RC's lying there. God shows up disguised as your life. I feel like Jim is so good at getting us to that point of seeing in that way and I've often told this story. Sorry I've told the story on the PODCAST conferences. One of the most powerful experiences that I had the living school was thanks to to. Jim's masterful teaching where I was a frustrated student young mom trying to to do this contempt of thing and and feeling like this was really a path that was only available for people who are retired or had ample time on their hands. Not People like me who are in the midst of Motherhood Juggling Life and work and screaming babies and so. I finally finally said to him one day during a session Jim you know. Where's the icon of the mystic? Mom with one baby on the head been crying kit on the floor and you know burning being food on the oven and China work on a laptop on the side and just feeling like I get up in the morning and it doesn't matter how early I get up. My kids are always going to interrupt my person. I said he said okay. Okay you be you and I'll be God in this way that jump talks and he proceeded to say you know it just means the World Aubrey that you get up so early and I see you there and see how how much you love me in that you want to spend this time with me. I can't tell you what it means to me. And so he goes on like this you know for a while and then he says you know I just I just love you so much. I just can't bear it. It's just you're so precious to me. I just can't stand it so so what I do do as I rush into the body of your children and I wake them up because I wanNA know what it feels like to be held by you mean. Oh there wasn't a dry eye in the classroom especially mine. I was sobbing and to this day. I hear from so many people. The ways in which that story has impacted them mm-hmm and how powerful of an image it is and this is what Jim I feel like. It's one of his particular gifts that helps to see God in the shape of our lives in the shape of our interruptions in the shape of the things that we think are problematic. He loves to say what's in the way is the way Yeah he's he's just is in rhythm with the beating heart of God. I feel like you know there's a lot to Jim story right. Like he was in Kosovo need need the monastery with Thomas Merton Tomor was a spiritual director and this is after leaving a household that was full trauma and he gets into his historian his trauma and his his journey from growing up in a household that that held abuse to working through The leaving home the going the monastery becoming in a trauma therapist and finding his own healing by helping others find there's and he does it all through the Lens of the mystic. I think that is what makes him mhm such unique teacher is. He's so grounded in in the hurt and the pain of being human. That's right and yet finding a way through with poetic and humor and twinkle in his eye. Yeah there's so much joy to his presence without him being like a huge personality that makes us there's humility and such a splendid grounded. nece everything about the word that comes to mind is precious and he uses that word a lot. You know that there's some things so precious about how he teaches but also in the ways in which he helps us discover our own preciousness even through some of the places we'd rather not go go even through the the worst wounding that we've received in our lives. He has a way of gently taking us. They're holding our hand as we turn and face some of those things that we'd rather not face and then somehow through the grace of God to locate God's presence in in that moment of trauma earned those moments of deep grief and wounding. That's one of the many ways that that Jim is gifted as as a mystical teacher and a wisdom teacher and he's funny as hell. Oh my God so funny seriously. He doesn't take himself seriously. Either you talk to him. I remember there was one time when he just gave this amazing talk like everybody was just like weeping weeping. I mean like he did like the entire Symposium all the living school students were like hanging on his every word and he gets down and we're walking along and he he's doing his little gems truffle on walk in and he goes. I have no idea what I just said he. He says they think I said something. But I I really don't know what it was. Isn't that funny and he liked. That's that's just kind of his approach. He's humble bears witness to what the divine is doing in him in his awesome lightness and gaiety that sober fresh. So we're so excited to introduce you all to James Finley if you haven't encountered him already and to kick off the super exciting new podcast which will be part of our CAC family of podcast shows and this one is going to be called turning to the mystics with James Finley. And we think you're really going to enjoy his lens on trauma on humanity as he explores different mystics teachings. I can think of no better teacher to be in the teaching this modality podcasts. Because he's his voice his depth at all just transcends audio go right to your heart so the fact that Jim is joining the podcast network family is. I'm just thrilled. Because there's another voice I can bring and invite others to check out as they journey on this path I mean he could literally just read the phone book and I feel like I would be one with God yes I think. Unfortunately unfortunately I couldn't make this recording of this introductory episode. But Paul you did hold down the fort in year for me. I tried you know your presence was missed you know. It's we have such a beautiful rhythm together when we're in this and I was joined by another staff member. Kirsten oats as We are doing this live at the living school. Symposium were were Jim is teaching with Richard. And so we got the chance for Richard to sit down Jim to sit down all of us together. And we kind of batted around.

"That's the first step of the twelve step program. So I created a five day event, we started doing. I'm here in New Mexico at goes drenched in nineteen ninety six. Six. To try to compress. What was often several weeks or several months? But I knew I could never get men away that long. To try to give them a distilled experience of classic male initiation. And as you said the response has been overwhelming. It's moved into thirteen different countries now and so forth. It just I just got an Email from the Czech Republic, right before I came over here about the they're just ending them today, outside of Prague and one hundred and fifty men or attending, and it's very gratifying. So I'm grateful. The God gave me a language that made sense to men because a large percentage of men don't even take religion seriously. With good reason. I'm Christa it. And this is on being today with Franciscan priest writer and teacher. Richard rohr. So wanna talk about some of the observations you make some good things you have heard, and that are involved in your training and actually, I want to say it's you, you spent a number of years as a chaplain at the Elbe Kirke jail seems to me that this formed this, this intensify, your sense of urgency around this also around. Christa. I was jailed chaplain here, a few blocks from where I'm sitting right now for fourteen years. And if there was one universal I found among the men in particular. But the certainly the, the young women to was it was rare if not never to find someone in jail who had a good father. That's what got me. You know, just driven toward we've gotta start growing up men because the male of the species does not know out a hand on his identity. His intimacy. His caring to his children. And, and the, the rage in the young male, who never had a dad or had an alcoholic father are emotionally, unavailable father, or abusive father is, is bottomless. It's just it, it moves out toward all of society. A mistrust of all thority all thority figures, all policemen, of course. Because if my dad abandoned me, I just basically, don't trust older men, and I don't like older men now. You can see what a bind this put us in when we define God as masculine right and called godfather exclusively that's one metaphor. But it is a metaphor. And so people who never had a loving mail in their life. And we come along and say, God, the father loves you. They have no outlet to plug into and that was my exp-. -perienced fourteen years at the jail. I'd go in these cells. And I mean these young guys would almost worship me because they never had an older man. Give them respect. Give them attention language father, hunger, yet, father hunger. It's driving so many things in our culture, even this, this whole corporate world of the younger, males need to please the big daddy, and get his Pat, on the back or his promotion. I think it's a mystery of. The human condition that also means you in some place. You described someone speaking to you about this father hunger, kind of, in the middle of their life, and realizing calling it saying they realized it was a chasm canyon, the emptiness in pain, left of a relationship with the father that wasn't there and the mystery that. We can get very old and that can still be with us, right? That this is not something that you just outgrow..

"And this is on being. Richard Rohr is founder of the center for action and contemplation in Albuquerque, New Mexico, his many books include falling, poured a spirituality for the two halves of life. We spoke in two thousand seventeen. Well, I would like to start where I start all of my conversations just here a little bit about the spiritual background of your childhood. Really? Well, you know, I'm seventy three so I was raised and what we Catholics call prebiotics into Catholicism not only provided contue conservative, but I was raised in the state of Kansas by German farm, parents. So I had a very traditional upbringing, but it also provided a wonderful safe container as I like to call it. And in some ways it no way prepared me for what my life had has done or what's happened to it. But in other ways, there's a straight line from that very grounded beginning and where I am now. And how did you discover the Franciscans or how did they discover you? You know again, this is we're talking about the mid nineteen fifty. Okay. And if, if a young boy had had any kind of inner God experience, and you were Catholic, the only thing to do is to be a priest. Now when I was in the eighth grade, I read a beautiful little book, probably fanciful by today's standards called the perfect joy of Saint Francis. And I said, oh, my I wanna live a life like that. Then it so happened that Franciscan from Cincinnati, and full Brown robe, and white rope came and talked to our eighth grade class and he gave me this address off in Cincinnati. I went and joined and it's a decision. I've never regretted a wonderful life. So you wrote this down somewhere, you entered the Franciscan order became a friar, I believe was nine hundred sixty one that's when I took I took first vows and how old were you, then it's we'd never let someone do this today. So I'm embarrassed to say I was just nineteen. Yeah. Yeah. I think they wanted to get us before we met a girl. But it's not as you as you describe in your writing, the Franciscans, then gave you a broad liberal arts and right? And your describe how this actually set off a very different second journey into rational complexity and also an different spirituality, it seems. You know, I always feel like I was born at the perfect time I was raised, of course in the older more stable world of the nineteen forties and fifties. And I that gave me enough security and grounded nece. So when everything blew up and in the sixties, that's when I was studying philosophy and theology in this marvelous form that we were given we were really as you said, given a liberal arts, education, exposed to all of history, and all of Christian history to we, we started historical theology not just giving you the Catholic conclusions as it were. But the whole process of how do we come to this notion of grace? How did we come to this notion of trinity, or whatever it might be? And little did. I think even though it was a very stringent form of education. God we. Studied a lot. But little did, I think, how well it would serve me that I can speak now with a certain kind of self confidence that I'm not unorthodox are I'm not crazy. Maybe I am. But I have this assurance that I'm speaking out of the perennial tradition. You know that these are not just my ideas, and that gives you a great confidence. A lot of people don't get that kind of education that they're, they're speaking out of the perennial tradition. I've read you across the years. I, I did too. Yeah. Number of books and getting ready to be with you today. I felt like there were so many different directions. We could take this conversation. I kind of decided to at least begin with your work on falling upward the second half of life. And I think that that's kind of a personal choice because as kind of where I Esa juncture, I'm at in my life innocence. Of course, it's not strictly chronological which will talk.

"You. With me. What an honor? Obviously anybody. Listen to this podcast knows how much I love Richard Rohr. I'm so honored to have him on the podcast again. This is the second Richard Rohr. If you don't know him, he is the author of many books that have absolutely without a doubt change my life. Whether you are a spiritual person or not he is wisdom. He's just a wise brilliant. Unbelievable and loving loving lovely, man. He is an expert and the any Graham, which you've heard me reference many times he's written books. There's a great YouTube that I'm actually halfway through. 'cause it's quite long on the Graham, which I highly recommend also wrote the book falling upward which I recommend which is about the two halves of life has nothing to do with your age. It's just about like entering into the second phase of your life. He also wrote this new book, which has blown me away. Called the universal Christ. I know people are going to be sort of, you know, maybe swayed off by the title, which is shame because it is a book about is. And this and all that wonderful stuff that I think even non-spiritual people can get into and it is radically inclusive. It is not judgmental finger-wagging. It is just a beautiful heartfelt touching message that I think a lot of people need to hear Christians eighth. It doesn't matter. It is fascinating exploration of of consciousness, basically in reality. So I highly recommend that book the universal Christ. It's I think it's his best by far which is saying a lot. If you want something a little less Jesus easy to get started. I recommend falling upward that is the book that I have given away more than twenty times to people it absolutely changed my life. And if you want something even more Jesus as I've plugged many times on this podcast. He has nineteen series called sermon on the mount, but it's not it's not just about the sermon on the mount it is a wonderful exploration of of Christianity. And the history of Christianity and metaphor and myth, and he's radical. It's crazy. It's a sort of thing that I wish I knew when I was in my twenties. But probably I heard it when I was ready for it. Which is now I listen to that at least once a year. It's incredible. So anyway, this this podcast is the first one you've ever done over Skype. But we did our best we recorded it on my end and his end so hopefully through mixing won't even be able to tell, but we Skype with Richard at his center for action and contemplation in New Mexico. Let me see anything I wanna plug. I wanna play his books. I wanna plug Nadia's book, which is called shameless Nati was less last week's episode. I want to again, Michael Gungor book, which is which is doing the. The peace pack book club. Now, I'm reading all these books that are changing my life. And I'm reading simultaneously. You know, just sort of picking the flavor every morning when I'm up with baby lay. And this is also just mind blowing -ly incredible. It's Michael Gungor who is a guest couple episodes back. And that book is is unbelievable. If you're interested in the in the God and consciousness portions I recommend shameless universal Christ. And this and I'm gonna throw in my own book. You knew it was coming. Comedy sex. God, you know, that by now if you'd like please preorder that on Amazon, it's my book about my life. I hope you like it. We also have some things coming up. We have the first live. You made it weird in in us years and years, and it's something that we haven't done before. Which is just me and one guest, which is going to be calling. Hey, the incredible musician from then at work, but he also has in fact, I know him primarily as a solo artist who I've listened to for over a decade. It's going to be June third at Largo here in Los Angeles. So that's going to be recorded live up to the podcast June third at Largo..

"It's a wonderful gift when you can't convince yourself that you're forgiven and the thorny voices in the name of God, I'm telling you, you are forgiven. I've been a confessor enough to know that is life changing. For many people. But we've got to take all the aspects of the gospel and understand them as gift not as an assessing. And Jesus is the supreme gift the summarize all of these gifts. So I'm glad I didn't intend to tell you about this. Richard Rohr is one of the biggest influences my own, spirituality. He's taught me about non dual thinking how to approach aging spiral dynamics. And the evolution of consciousness, the practical implications following cheese us and most important of all how to get out of the way. My favorite Richard Gorka, quote is we don't think our way into a new way of living. We live our way into a new way of thinking. Thanks, richard. For the gifts that you are. He has brought so much freedom into my spiritual life steering me away. Do this thinking and judgment about broadening Musco of the influence of Christ. I spent most of my life is a really rigid fundamentalist, and sometimes I still have tremendous guilt over the actions. I took as a result of my beliefs, and one of those things was when I was teaching Sunday school, and people would have we'd have a time of prayer impera quest. I would always feel very annoyed with people who would have a pair of cost about their cat or their dog. Because this is not a serious thing. Oh, that's right Jesus. We hear that serve Jesus to share the gospel to say people from hell, and here you are talking about this your oldest being. And then I read the dedication of this book, and it took my breath away. Thank you because on the other side of rigid fundamentalism last year, we lost a dear friend and family member. Whose name was max, he was a blue Ymer Reiner? I know seeing that how you open the book that how Venus your black lab choose to be sitting right here, and how Venus revealed crise you. I'd just I'd love to hear your reflections on the universal Christ as seen through. Yes..

"It will be coming near you. Hey, everybody, Michael Gungor here science, Mike. And this is a special episode. We we don't go on location for many episodes. There are few people in the world like Richard Rohr. That were like, all right. We'll get on a plane fine. Almost every more. Like winter you going to be in Los Angeles. But we had a chance for all four of us to fly to Albuquerque, New Mexico. Lou waited the old restaurant of the year nominee PF changs. Good. It was really good. As one of the best gift Jiang's never had. Why saw that it was nominated for restaurant of the euro's come on Albuquerque. I I love you. You gotta you gotta do better for yourself. But anyway, all four of us went to the CAC and got to sit down for a couple of hours with this amazing. Legendary man Richard Rohr? Why is it? Do you think that our audience resonate so much with Richard Rohr, Mike? I mean, it's like he's obviously a favorite anytime. We put something on with him people like or what is it? I think so many of our listeners they're either not sure where they are with Christianity or they're so frustrated with that tradition that they're kind of done with it. But for so many of us that I would guess the vast majority of this audience invested years or decades of early life in that tradition. And no matter how you feel about it today you've been shaped and molded by Chris. Hannity, and at least for me, sometimes it feels like like tossing it all out is is. A waste. I mean, I've spent so much time in the church. And so I think Richard Rohr represent such a uniquely hope full figure for people who listen to our show. I mean, he's a he's a Catholic. Frier among basically in in. The Catholic church is, you know, positions on things like LGBTQ equality are far out of step with our audience, and yet Richards heart is so open his manner. So gentle and his theology. So reassuring I think he almost uniquely offers hope that there's something redeeming about the Christian tradition to people who listen to the literatures podcast. Well, I hope you all enjoy this third appearance of Richard roar on the just podcasts such a pleasure to have him back. We've broken it into to episodes because it's a bit long button to in a couple of fittings if you'd like welcome to the just podcast everybody. Father Christianity is a faith. That is often defined by division, the churches splintered into an ever increasing number of denominations and sects all of whom place. Distinct claims on the nature and reality of Jesus Christ..

"There have to be. So you set out to create losers. And I'm convinced we read the gospel. Which for me is a non reading of the gospel. It's not good news anymore. The gospel for me if it's gonna be good news. It's gotta be win win. So God was preparing me. My my early mistakes. That's an interesting connection though between. Experiences of humiliation and our cultural conditioning to always want to win and waiting winning with a certain perception of perfection. So that a lot of sense that those close your Tony as a mother of this is true that the woman once she's had children in herons has to let go of win lose because she was to all of her children equally and. She surly one is a little weak or less smarter less. Good looking or lists have led it. Boy. She she's the last one in the world was to think that way my little Johnny is just as good as Larry. And I'm gonna communicate that to him. So she chooses a win win worldview much earlier than the male. Does if the male does that at all I hate to make such a generalization regarded gender because they know it is always true. When you see the almost ecstatic excitement men get contests, you know, you're dealing with something. That's. Irrational use that word does it really matter. Whether this team wins over that team they've been so trained to divide reality and to put themselves in that game of being a winner. And from my side after years of men's work. They really don't realize what a price paid for in terms of their own soul. Because you know, once you you frame reality win lose most people are losers that to win by our is only one team or one person or one talent on America's got talent. And everybody else. So call loses or is a loser. This would be an excellent moment to get an official Richard Rohr endorsement for all men to give up fantasy sports. We just get this recording. Lorded over certain people pathetically reminds me, Jerry Seinfeld. I think is the one who has the joke about we don't actually cheer for teams trained for uniforms because players get traded all the time. Continue to cheer for that. Good. I never heard Ed so funny because it takes a step back. Right. And you're the the hilarity of cheering for someone in a uniform versus the people actually make up the team while let me give you my more gracious interpretation of this. This is really going on longer than you one. But I think building on that. The male has such a need of community brotherhood, camaraderie, and the quickest way to artificially, but really created is to create a team that I can cheer for with other brothers. They're out my side. So it gives you a pseudo sense of community toss brotherhood without really suffering or sacrificing anything while these are my brothers were all for the Yankees. Isn't that we want communitize Victor Turner coined that phrase, and he said, that's what's happening at a lot of religious services that if we all raise our hands together, if you're Catholic.
