LESSON 36 – The Parable of The Lamp Under a Basket

Through the famous parable told by Jesus, this lesson goes beyond the metaphor to examine our journey toward “spiritual enlightenment,” including ambivalence and resistance, and some of how perception beyond the physical senses can help us to connect with goodness.
