Episode Info: What can Christians learn from reading the Tao Te Ching? And how can this writing assist us in deconstruction? --- It is truly amazing how the more we begin to study other religions, spiritual practices, and philosophies, how much of what they teach begins to overlap with the teachings of Christ. And as we begin to go through or progress further down our spiritual journey, picking up these little nuggets of wisdom help to teach us the truths of God’s creation in a whole new way. Sometimes, when we hear a philosophy taught in a different light it helps us understand these universal truths in a new way. This week, Corey Farr, host of the podcast, “A Christian Reads the Tao Te Ching” joins us to share an introduction into what he has learned as he has explored Taoism, as well as how we can apply some of these truths to our walk with Christ. Corey has taken the time to pan through numerous translations to offer up his perspective of these truths and shares how by finding, reading, and studying the Tao Te Ching, his relationship and faith in Christ have grown stronger. --- This week we talked about: * The Parallels between Christianity and the Tao The Ching (sp) * Hearing from God * The Non Dualistic thinking of life * holding your desires “loosely” * cataphatic vs apophatic theology * Realizing that you cannot control your circumstances, only how you react to them * striving for a presence of peace by being mentally present GUEST INFO: Correy Farr: I'm a seminary graduate, a Christian Anarchist, a writer, a poet, a songwriter, and a wannabe author. I live and work with Syrian orphans in the Middle East. I also run a podcast, "A Christian Reads the Tao te Ching," which you can find in the menu bar.
