Talk 3a: Living Force of Love - Saint Thérèse of Lisieux was called by Pope Pius X “the greatest saint of modern times.” Easwaran points out that her appeal extends far beyond the walls of her convent, and even of her Catholic faith. He explains the gradual process we need to follow in order to withdraw our attention from ourselves and place it onto others, resting it ultimately in God.
Talk 3b: Love At Its Highest - Easwaran shows how Thérèse echoes the core message of the world’s great mystics. By cultivating an awareness of the divine spark within ourselves and others, we can learn to love others fully, and put them first always. This simple but demanding practice is the path to discovering what Easwaran calls our “original goodness.”
