Stumbling Mystic Podcast – How Do I Respond to the Spiritual Impulse?

I was drawn to the spiritual flame at an early age. Questions of ultimate concern have always fascinated me.

The spiritual impulse is a pull that feeds me, delights me, frustrates me, and educates me, continually leading to deeper discoveries about my essential self. I want to understand more about this compelling urge that occupies so much of my energy.

In Episode 1 of the Stumbling Mystic podcast, I talk with my guests about how their experiences nurture their spiritual well-being. Their stories and insights are inspiring:

  • How one person’s grief and anger at the cancer diagnosis of her child led to a spiritual maturity that was big enough to hold her volcanic rage;

  • How a young seminarian found solace from depression by lying before the tabernacle in the middle of the night;

  • How turning toward the difficulties and shadow of our common humanity can help us participate in a collective conscious with others;

  • How the spiritual impulse pulls us into a partnership between our ego self and higher self that is the basis for spiritual growth.

I was struck by the courage, vulnerability and resilience of my guests. Although I’ll never fully grasp the nature of this impulse that draws me toward the Sacred, I am grateful for its power and guidance.
