Widen your consciousness to the dimension of the earth and you will have a place for everything.
The future belongs to those who give the next generation reason for hope.
Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
In all things of nature there is something of the marvelous.
People seldom look very hard for things they don’t want to find. They avert their eyes from such things.
My Ishmael (Daniel Quinn)
History has revealed too many people who have tried to be spiritual before they have learned how to be human! It is a major problem. Maybe this is why Jesus came to model humanity for us—much more than divinity. Once we get the simplest human parts down (stop slamming doors and start loving rocks), God will most assuredly take it all from there. Get the ordinary human thing down, and you will have all the spirituality that you can handle.
The precise message of the Raised Up Christ is that God is available everywhere, as his body moved beyond any limits of space and time. For some reason we like to keep God “elsewhere” or “just here,” where we can control God by our theologies, tabernacles, and services. We often tell God whom he can love or not love. Poor God must conform to our moral systems and judgments.
When man determined to destroy
himself he picked the was
of shall and finding only why
smashed it into because.
The difficult part of seeing is setting aside what you’re sure you already know.
If you want to do something you have never done before,
you have to do something you have never done before.
If you want to go somewhere you have never gone before,
you have to go somewhere you have never gone before.
You cannot do something new by doing old things.
If you want your life to change, you have to change your life.
So go ahead. It’s safe. And it’s also…about time.
When a stupid man is doing something he is ashamed of, he always declares that it is his duty.
