On being grateful

I adore On Being podcasts.

I adore this particular one because the guest is an elder, a Catholic monk with so much wisdom, talking about topics that make my heart and mind sing.  

The defining and refining of gratefulness, thanksgiving, spirituality, and religion (using the apt metaphor of a dormant volcano that lacks the fiery spark) many layers of insight, reflection and learning.

Hearing Br. David Steindl-Rast talk about how our society, rooted in oppression, is collapsing before our eyes.  It's rare in mainstream media or society that people openly state that, so I find it refreshing, even if the words make my breath get stuck in my throat.
