[its a] system of illusion

October 2, 2008

Jesus and Francis had no pragmatic agenda for social reform. They just moved outside the system of illusion, more ignoring it than fighting it and quite simply doing it better.

Don’t waste any time dividing the world into the good guys and the bad guys. Hold them both together in your own soul—where they are anyway—and you will have held together the whole world.

You will have overcome the great divide—in one place of spacious compassion. You, little you, will have paid the price of redemption. God takes it from there, but always by replicating the same pattern in another conscious human life //richard rohr

    “do not try to bend the spoon, that’s impossible. Only try to realize the truth.”

    “what truth?”

    “there is no spoon.”
