Are we Ready to go Barefoot?


John Philip Newell reads from “A New Harmony.” He speaks in this powerful video of walking barefoot while in India, stumbling over a woman lying on the ground.  Something in Newell knew that he didn’t want to touch this woman because if he recognized the woman, he would have to change.  Do we allow uncomfortable ideas, situations in our lives to change us, to open our eyes to recognize God? As I listened to this video for a second time, the woman becomes a metaphor for everything that we fear.  Fear is a very real emotion but it often is just the surface for some deep rooted emotions that we are not willing to face.  Please leave a comment that you would like to share.
