One World in a New World with Joseph Carrabis - Author, Philosopher
This apocalyptic chat reveals a much more challenging start in life than most. Joseph shares he was blind at birth and has only been able to 'see' for about 2/3 of his life now. It took many surgeries and, over time, he was able to see. Can you imagine the appreciation he has for being able to see?
What if you were deemed 'retarded' and you parents wanted to institutionalize you as a result of misdiagnosis? Zen can certainly relate to that one, too. Can you? You'll be fascinated by the story of Joseph's journey and his early introduction to the 'mystery schools' of knowledge and wisdom. The wisdom shared by his grandfather is ageless. Pay attention, please. It could change your life.
What small gesture toward another in compassion or kindness have you made today? Joseph reiterates what most know in that one small gesture like that can change the course of someone's life, perhaps even your own. He speaks about indigenous wisdom, referring to the Hopi. What he shares will make so much sense, you've just got to hear it.
Joseph shares a story about Art Linkletter that strikes a blow to the perception most had of him. Do you keep score of your life and the lives of others, or do you find solace within and not be concerned? How does that awareness relate to your relationships and the outer world?
We enjoy a moment about music, piano, and the advantages of having musicality in developing style. Learning the basics of anything is important, allowing one to expand their repertoire. As the work continues, so does the development of self-awareness. Joseph states that whatever is inside of us will eventually come out, perhaps an unfolding of a perfected form, fit and function in the world.
Alas, you're going to enjoy the lines about lines, a couple of old guys chatting about life, reality and how we might enjoy our fit better. If you wonder about the spider's web, you'll be delighted to hear about the story behind the artwork and of the wolf next to it, though you'll have to follow the conversation to find out.
