Moore recommends ways to live the Gospel now

Barque links to previous posts at The Night Sea Journey which often features passages by Thomas Moore. On Christmas Day, the blog quotes Writing in the Sand: Jesus and the Soul of the Gospel in the post "Merry Chrsitmas and U2". It suggests four ways, described by Moore, to live the Gospel message today:
1. Respect people not in your circle and whom society rejects;
2. Deal with demonic urges in yourself and in society: Do something about "aggression, paranoia, narcissism, greed, jealousy, and violence."
3. Be a healer;
4. Stay awake!

The blog includes, "Moore says that, 'Christ lived fully on this earth in the community of his friends and family, but he also never left contact with his heavenly father. He was shamanic, skilled at being both earthy and visionary.'"
