How a reframe helped me understand spiritual transformation
Stepping out of the boat and onto the water seems an appropriate parable for a naval academy grad. The correlation you applied to teaching your kids to listen to their somatic experiences resonated with me as a new father.
I'm welcoming this expedition to integration and look forward to the next installment!
Thank you for exploring the topic of higher power and spirituality, Latham. You offer me an interesting lens through which I can view familiar stories. "Many of us have felt the pain of knowing wisdom but being unable to help others see." This line spoke so loudly to me, you could have printed it in 50 font. You make me think. I look forward to your next essay.
This is beautiful, Latham. “Maybe the problem is that you are trying to understand a philosophy instead of trying to get to know a man.” Reframing in this way suddenly makes everything more real, more tangible, more relatable. Thank you for sharing your thoughts with us as you explore this revelation.
I once flew to the Naval Academy to photograph a friend's wedding. The chapel was magical.
Wow, wonderfully said!
I loved The Truth and Beauty also. My favorite book I read last year.
