“Our deepest human longing is for BE-longing; for belonging to our true selves, for belonging to all others…belonging to the whole universe…and belonging to that unfathomable mystery that we are confronted with on every side.”
– Br. David Steindl-Rast
Tami Simon, of Sounds True, recently interviewed Brother David for “Insights at the Edge,” Tami’s in-depth audio podcast series with leading spiritual teachers and luminaries.
In this episode, Tami Simon and Brother David talk about the innate longing that drives spiritual study and is the impetus for seeking out a monastic life. Tami and Brother David explore the concept of the “Double Realm” that lies beyond standard concepts of time and existence, as well as how practicing gratitude can be a doorway to that realm. Finally, Brother David considers the future of religion and spirituality as he enters his ninetieth year of life. (62 minutes)
