The 3 1/2 hour 1200 calorie climb to the base of Mount Whitney tonight was much much much more client-focused. There's a ways to go but cycling was much more of a background automatic task so probably the first third of a book called saving Paradise, a rather revolutionary look at the first thousand years after Jesus, with the observation that in the first thousand years his crucifixion was virtually irrelevant. It was about establishing Paradise on Earth in this life.
Like the book, spiritual Evolution, George vaillant, which I have recommended very highly I do so with the huge caution. As George writes about the limbic system being rather weak and exercising his, no disrespect, just a fact, the Two Sisters writing this book or clearly strong if not Giants of the cerebral cortex but not of the limbic system consequently there is little richness to their observation and substantial error. Having said that, they have done tremendous research and this is a book that probably will be read several times by me although not at the top of my priority list. But what I have seen so far is that in the first Thousand Years there were some people that really understood what this is all about, joy in this life, finding that kingdom of God, that heaven, which is the place of loving service, within us.
