Is your god big enough? Close enough? You enough? Join Paul Smith and Ken Wilber as they take us on an expansive journey from the traditional Trinity to Paul’s nine-dimensional “expanded” Trinity.
The following is excerpted from Paul’s book, Is Your God Big Enough? Close Enough? You Enough?:
- Which of the three faces of God — the God beyond you, the God beside you, and the God that is you — do you tend to emphasize the most in your spiritual life? Which do you emphasize the least? Why do you think this is?
- Has any part of this dialogue helped expand or deepen your spiritual experience in any way?
- Has your “Western soul” needed any healing from previous religious wounding, such as liberation from shame or from abusive images of God as exclusively male, angry, punishing, or rejecting? Where are you in that process right now?
