Open to the mysteries without need for explanation

Listen to Thomas Moore deeply respond to Tami Simon's questions in their conversation Standing for the Spiritual, in a Secular World dated Sunday 10 April, 2016. Moore has worked with Simon's company Sounds True on a variety of projects over a long period of time — Sounds True recently released Moore's 6-CD learning program, A Personal Spirituality: Finding Your Own Way to a Meaningful Life. Simon addresses this program's themes while also asking questions based on Moore's recent book A Religion of One's Own: A Guide to Creating a Personal Spirituality in a Secular World.

Moore talks about:
— articulating where you are before making a major change
— spirituality as transcending what we can see, measure or control
— living in a broad range of time, not just "now"
— knowing the necessity of betrayal/ transgression to mature
— the Jesus teaching to love people not in your circle
— the courage to take a stand
