In many folktales a foolish character causes all kinds of trouble for himself. We laugh at the foolishness because we recognize that part of ourselves that acts foolishly. In several of the parables of Jesus our Way Shower, foolishness plays a role. Something goes wrong. Jesus uses these stories to show how foolishness keeps us disconnected from Spirit, from God. Today we will see how we can use foolishness as a stepping stone on our spiritual path. We will discover how to turn a foolish act into a gateway to the life of Spirit.
