Science, fear, God and the mystical -- 3 of 3


Beatrice Bruteau

Episode 3: Fear: Today's spiritual challenge (16 min.)
Bruteau tells Tom Fox: "All our challenges can be reduced to efforts by one party to dominate other parties. This shows in persons, corporations, nations, religions, and warfare. ... This comes out of a psychology of fear. The basis of this fear is that we don't have a basic hold on existence. We see others precisely as others, not as equals, as children of God. ... The deeper truth is the truth of mutual affirmation and not mutual negation."
