Listening to a Richard Rohr lecture series discussing the Sermon on the Mount. In it he talks about 3 “demons” to be aware of at all times.
- The need to be effective.
- The need to be right.
- The need to be powerful or in control.
Jesus had to confront these before leaving the desert. They cannot be defeated but through awareness one hopes to keep them from running the show.
Interesting that much of the way our society is setup puts these 3 “demons” on a pedestal. Challenging to rewire after a lifetime of this programming.
