In this short clip Norse and I are completely relaxed and in animated conversation. Norse answers the question I posed at the close of part 3 by reminding me of a discussion we had before I moved i…[ ]
A human being is a part of a whole, called by us ‘universe’, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest… a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.

I’ve said before (probably too many times) that as an Asperger’s/autistic person, I tend to think and process information differently.
I think I repeat this tidbit fairly often because a precious few members of the general public seem to understand (except of course, for the awesome people reading blogs like these!). The world at large is still stuck in “Autism Is a Pathology” Land.
Not only do I process the world differently, but I tend to operate differently in pretty much every aspect of life.
There’s no harm in that. Left to my devices, there’s not even much difficulty in that.
But I can’t live left to my own devices for prolonged periods of time, of course. The way my life works, I do depend on other people. I do crave their company (at least some of them, at least most of the time).

St. Francis told his brothers that it was better to remain with the Superior even if he believed him to be wrong, than to leave…etc
Of Perfect and Imperfect Obedience
Day 5:The Lord says in the Gospel: they “that do not renounce all that they possess cannot be” a “disciple” and “they that will save their life, shall lose it.”
A person is truly obedient when they leave all they possess, lose their body (and their soul), and wholly obeys their superior, doing whatever the superior requires – (provided the person know that what they do is good and not contrary to the superior’s will). If at times a person sees things which would be better, or more useful to, them than those which the superior asks of them, let them sacrifice their will to God. Let them strive to fulfil the work requested by the superior. This is true and charitable obedience, which is pleasing to God and to one’s neighbour.
Day 6: If, however, a superior commands anything of a person that is against the person’s soul, it is permissible for the person to disobey. However, the person must not leave the superior. If as a result the person suffers persecution from some, they should love their persecutors the more for God’s sake.
For the one who would rather suffer persecutions, than wish to be separated from their brethren, truly abides in perfect obedience. Because they lay down their life for their brethren.
There are many religious who, under pretext of seeing better things than those which their superiors command, look back and return to the vomit of their own will. These are murders and by their bad example they cause the loss of many souls.
I have not ever been able to understand why it is/ was laudable to stay around while injustice reigned.
We left because no one understood why we would feel this way.
Currently we are trialling Hope Uniting Church, just down the street. It is a member of the Uniting Church of Australia, I don’t know where it sits as in Wesleyan, Presbyterian or Congregational. The church is very Franciscan and there is a complete spectrum of ages present.
It is not a Catholic church but coming from a non denominational parish that is of no consequence. It is one which follows the Two Holy Ordinances and is very focused on the word.
Last weeks Gospel reading covered the matter of Fasting and Prayer and we were challenged by the Pastor to fast in some way – from food, media, mobile phone, TV and to Pray for a period of 3 months.
So far I find fasting easier than prayer?????
