January 21, 2023. Lies We Tell Ourselves

An important and even crucial part of the spiritual path is self-honesty, which should lead to self-knowledge. Of course, everyone wants to believe that they are honest. But without clearly seeing the ways that we kid ourselves, we may just spin our wheels in a dream about the path. This talk will explore the many shades of lying and self-deception and the impact that working with them can have in our lives.
“Self-deception can be more comforting than self-knowledge. We like to fool ourselves.” (Russ Roberts)
Movie recommendation for anyone wishing to consider the topic beforehand: The Invention of Lying (comedy)
Speaker: Karl Krumins has been a spiritual practitioner for forty years. He lived in India for seven years and has a passion for considering the essential similarities of spiritual traditions.
