I couldn’t locate the exact version he read, though here is a link to the poem, called “Bluebird”: https://allpoetry.com/poem/8509539-Bluebird-by-Charles-Bukowski I (Kaben) referenced a few half-lines from a poem about the shadow side. The author is Juan Ramon, and the poem is “I am not I” (“Yo soy no yo”), translated by Robert Bly: https://allpoetry.com/I-Am-Not-I At the very end of the episode, an excerpt from Rainer Maria Rilke is read.

Of Dust & Divinity > 4. On Capitalism, Marxism, and an "Other" Kingdom [formerly Bonus, Part 2]

Tiffany, Mia, and Kaben explore the emerging trend that says, "You can't be a Christian and be a Marxist." Really? Can you be a Christian and be a capitalist? Why isn't that narrative being questioned, and what is behind trying to drive such a strong wedge between Christianity and Marxism? Does it have to do with some of the BLM leaders aligning with Marxist ideology? And does that mean that, subliminally, the messaging is really, "if you're a Christian, you can't support black lives"? Oh heck no!

Of Dust & Divinity > 7. The one where an eye disease meets implicit bias and they become friends.

Jon, Christopher, and Kaben talk about life as control freaks, the responsible use of power and how adding friction to the system and lower police brutality, and wrap up talking about implicit bias and how we as white males are doing the internal work of becoming aware and working through it.

Of Dust & Divinity > 10. Where soul work and internal work on racism collide

Timira, Chris, and Kaben continue their conversation through racism, processing as white people. We dig into how past failures have opened doors to listen, lament, and change during this time of national outrage around systemic discrimination against black people in America.
