Purpose 109: The Sacred Enneagram with Christopher Heuertz
On Episode 109 of Are You Real Purpose Host Jon Fuller talks to the Author of The Sacred Enneagram Christopher Heuertz. Christopher has spent the last 25 years of his life in the Non- profit sector. He has volunteered with Mother Teresa as well as started one of the first pediatric aids care homes in South Asia for kids with HIV. Christopher went to a Christian Liberal Arts school, and originally thought he would end up in the church world, but a trip to Jerusalem open his eyes to suffering that allowed him to change his focus. Having this experience as a young person caused him to have to go back to scripture to see what the bible says about helping others in need. Christopher talks in depth about how he was impacted by Mother Teresa during those early years of his life, and reflects on the type of person she was. He says he has never again since then been in the presence of someone who has the depth and love she had. He says she threw herself into the mystery of the divine love, and realized it was beyond her. It was something remarkable and beautiful. She was a person that continued to say yes even when everything in her wanted to say no.
Christopher also talks about his intriguing book The Sacred Enneagram, and gives much insight into the different personality types, and why it is important to embark on the journey of self love. He says “We need to build the best of ourselves. Love our neighbor as ourself. Most of us don’t love ourselves well.” Chris also says that recognizing the sewers in our own souls that have been neglected or ignored are an important part of growth as a person.
