Awakening Faith in an Alternative Future Part 5

Below is the next part of the commentary on my presentation to the national SOFiA conference .....and here again is the link to the full presentation:

I illustrated this idea with a relatively informal example from the world of golf. I know of a few people who came to the game of golf because they had to “know about golf to impress the boss.” None of them are still playing. Those who I know who are still playing do so because they have a sense of belonging within the game and its community. Out of that they are motivated to better learn the behaviours and ideas behind the game.
I played a segment from the movie The Legend of Bagger Vance where a caddy (who “gets” the U shaped, non-mechanical, presence way of being) implores his golfer to “see the field” and “feel the game with your hands; your hands are wiser than your head will ever be” In other words “stop trying to know the game in your head first and then belong to the game with your whole body second. It has to be the other way around!
