Filis expounds on her experience and understanding of what she
calls “Kicks and Kisses”. Kicks are the experiences
of suffering in life and Kisses are the experiences of joy in life.
Filis explains the necessity of suffering: “Suffering is necessary
to crack the nut of the ego.” Meher Baba’s answer to
why there is misery in the world is because of the satisfaction
of individual selfishness. Filis tells stories of her own personal
difficulties (kicks) in life and how the disappointments in her
youth prepared her for meeting Meher Baba.
This talk tackles a serious subject in a kind-hearted way and gives
the viewer a larger perspective to life’s Kicks and Kisses.
