Living Spiritual Rhythms–July 30

The notion that all interpretations are equal is a widely believed contemporary perspective. This view, however, does not lead us to freedom, as it is so often assumed, but to the bondage of hyper-subjectivity. Flattening everything out and seeing it as the same goes against the undeniable role of distinction – differentiation that is part of reality and the beauty of life. There are, after all, better and worse interpretations. Acknowledging a place for objectivity is freeing, not enslaving.
