Enforcer of Conformity

Interesting description of a public figure.  Especially in today's world.  If you hear such a description, who springs to mind?

Actually, I read the term here.  But you might easily have wondered if you'd find it here.

One thing is for sure.  You will not find it here!  And that's because you won't find it here.

Current events are challenging us.  Questioning us.  Jesus was comfortable enough to pose the question:  Who do you say I am?  

It is instructive to use our own answers to that question.  As a measure.  Of any leader.  We might choose.  To follow. 

My own answers?  For long.  For shortFor starters...

TheraP, many thanks for this posting. I particularly liked your "long" explanation of what draws some of us onto the path of spiritual search. I could relate to the theme of being moved about in childhood, since that happened to me, too. And I think you're right: this can open up, for some people, a strong awareness of how incidental the many differences used to tag people as insiders and outsiders are.

Thank you for sharing so much wisdom and so much spiritual experience through your several outstanding blogs. And for linking to them at my site, so more readers can know about them.
