I happened to be driving when 'On Being' came on NPR today. Normally, the show makes me feel uncomfortable because it is so often at odds with my own rather diffident and somewhat unwilling sense of spirituality, and I was about to change the channel when I caught the subject of the episode. I decided to listen after all.

I have not had such a shock of self-recognition since the first time I read the Principia Discordia (long story). I was hearing Joy express feelings I was afraid were unique to myself, feelings so painful and raw I had rarely stated them to anyone except my therapist, even some feelings I had never admitted even to myself. It was so hard for me to listen that I had to stop, but I heard one last thing before I did: that the full interview was on their website.

Eventually, I did listen to the whole thing, but it was rather a catharsis and while I'm glad I did, it was rough on me.

Anyway, I thought some of the others here might want to hear it as well.
