Ep. 104: Our Awakening with Raniero Hoffman
What if we all have something special within all of us, ready to be awakened, to be pulled out into our existence?
Perhaps that is a fundamental truth that we continue to deny. You are already very special. But how do we start to really remember?
Father Raniero is a Catholic monk from the New Camaldolese Hermitage in Big Sur and he is here to talk about our awakening and enlightenment. He was one of my original interviewees when I first started, when we began the podcast talking about forgiveness on Episode 2.
And today, he returns to talk about Our Awakening, what he calls Our God within us, and all around us. And we use the term God loosely, it could be our faith, whichever religion you practice, the universe, your light. Your truest form. This conversation was very important and timely for me, because sometimes I also forget my light is there, dampening it. Father Raniero reminds us to never forget, to live with, and be guided by what is in all of us. He begins by giving us a little homily, and check out the amazing conversation as we go at it. And I really mean it, he is so insightful, speaks with joy always, and truly loving. It was a conversation that I needed to hear at that very moment in time. On a side note, this is something that I've been noticing with truly spiritual people- it's like they remember and know the child-like Joy in life, and we can feel it. It's like, JUST CHILL. Like the Dalai Lama always seems like he's laughing or joyful.
And if you like this interview - check out the other monks that I interviewed in the past: Cyprian Consiglio was in The Breadth of the Divine on ep 27 and Michael Fish was on the podcast in The Journey thru Life on episode 88. These monks are legit soul reaching, insightful, aiming for love at times what seems like a whole other level. Be inspired to live your best life!
