To Unlearn.

The layers of living/loving life are coming through to me as a peeling away, an unlearning. 
Unlearning the American Dream. 
Unlearning the formulas of family security in suburban quarantine.
Unlearning the reasons why people are given value. 

And what excites me, is that this revealed wisdom of living and seeing through the veil
is confirmed in the Gospel. 

What is the Gospel but an Unlearning of our desires, haunts, and secret motives?  What is the Gospel but an ancient recording of what my heart is screaming all around me.
