Rabbi Ted Falcon Sermon “The Failure of the Golden Rule”
Title: The Failure of the Golden Rule
http://seattleunity.org—In this Sunday sermon titled “The Failure of the Golden Rule,“ Rabbi Ted Falcon explores key underlying prerequisites for helping the Golden Rule to work more effectively by offering a thorough argument for psychological and spiritual requirements for fully expressing the Golden Rule. By fulfilling these prerequisites, the promise of the universal moral core of the great world religions can become more fully expressed to lead us to a world of greater compassion, love, and peace. Rabbi Ted takes the members of the Seattle Unity Spiritual Community through stories and ideas, and a deep meditation towards loving our minds and waking up to enact the Golden Rule in our individual lives, with others, and even as a species.
Key ideas within this sermon:
Today we look at the shadow side of the spiritual path in order to understand what has gone wrong, and what we can do about it.
How is it that the greatest teachings of all spiritual traditions have not led us to a world of greater compassion, love and peace?
