This episode focuses on the growing sense of collective fear in America. Michael Meade begins with reports of several mass shootings the night before the massive gun rally on Martin Luther King Day. He also considers the intensification of fears at play in the heavily polarized proceedings of the current impeachment trial. After offering an old proverb that warns how it is “a short road that leads from fear to hatred," he describes how fear can be "the awakener." Hope can be found in learning that the hidden purpose of fear is to bring us closer to the deep resources of our life.
"We are in a country flooded with fear and have to find ways to trust that the specific fears we feel intend to lead us to the deep resources of our own soul."
