Ideals should never be more important than human beings. If we want actions to improve, we need to elevate hope, not increase despair. This session addresses the causes as well as the harm of misplaced priorities and challenges religion to understand and embrace its own doctrine. It discusses lesser and even hijacked identities stemming from such priorities, as well as the need for healing vs. the hindering role the ego plays in it. It begins a discussion into the power of conscious presence and the value of being authentically good vs. needing to look good, and offers numerous resources for healing.
