Thought for the Week

"Spiritual practices must invade, touch, and heal the unconscious, where 95% of our real motivation lies.  Faith-filled actions, contemplative prayer, solitude, silence, and many life events have the power to expose and change our unconscious agendas and motivations.  Most "belief systems" are just laid on top of our egoic world view, and unfortunately do little damage to it.  We can say all the right words, practice all the right rituals, and our heart can remain cold and unconnected."

- Richard Rohr
