I'm just LOVING the audio versions b/c I can listen as I prepare a meal or groom my dog. If my attention is needed elsewhere, I can slide back and re-listen with increased attention. Or listen twice. Thank you so much Rebbe Charles (what I and my friends call you).
This is a vision I can both understand and relate to and it revives flagging hope during these troubled times. Thank you, there are wonderful takeaways, and I particularly love - control is a substitute for what the soul really longs for, to restore its connections, to belong, to be whole. It makes sense of something that seemed dark, but can now evoke compassion. Thank you for creating this in audio, it has an added dimension coming through in your voice, and I like being able to move around whilst listening. Looking forward to more.
This is very thoughtful, optimistic and spiritual. However, as Aquinas would say, you can't have good without evil, as you can't have light without darkness. Control is more than a need to connect, it is fundamental to narcissism and psychopathy.
I know in my heart ‘love’ is the answer but having a list of the ‘new progress’ is awesome. Will it need to happen in parallel communities as I don’t see the fast track technos loosening their grip.
I really love listening to your voice sharing your essay- amplifying your message and letting even more of the frequency you stand for come through

Much appreciate your thoughtful work.
I dont believe in evil.
As darkness is mearly shadow
or the absence of light,
Thank you so much for shining yours.
Fabulous - thank you 🙏🏼
Please keep making the audio recordings - they really work for me
Beautiful, Charles, so beautiful. Your vision, your articulation of it, the love that emanates from it, and from you. The gift of who you are is received with gratitude and joy. By me, and by many. Thank-you!
The audio versions work best for me. Thank you so much for this option. I embrace your work with gratitude.
I LOVE audio versions! Thank you Charles!
Holding space for reinventing progress starts around 11:23. Loosening the grip of reinforced attention to the first 11 minutes is half the battle.
What a clear and wonderful vision for what we as a species can become!
Incidentally one advantage of the audio: my wife has had times when she's been unable to wear reading glasses & therefore read. You can imagine therefore what a blessing it is to be able to listen.
Brilliant, refreshing, articulate. My wife & I listen and discuss and grow. Thankyou.
Good call using Substack Podcast. And thanks for your efforts on this.
