There is nothing wrong with us that having a trustworthy sounding board wouldn't fix. Clarity is everything. The Buddha's Eight Fold Path can be reduced to two: Right Seeing and Right Doing. Clarity enables both of them. Of course, the Buddha's word for clarity is Enlightenment. Enlightenment is clarity, is realization, understanding, comprehension, knowing... The only thing wrong with us ever is that we lack clarity. Which makes a sounding board-- and emptiness, stillness and silence essential to Right Seeing and Right Doing. The church, any church, every church, all churches, could throw out its theology and take up the work of becoming a place where everyone is a sounding board and everyone practices emptiness, stillness and silence. It is an idea whose time came during the life of Jesus, and we are still waiting for the light to go on, and people to wake up to what has been with them all along. Could be any day now.
