I’ve had lots of words typed in this space. Sometimes you just let Richard Rohr talk, because when he does, he makes whatever you have typed or written sound stupid.
In the spiritual life, there aren’t too many absolutes I can make, but this is certainly one. On the spiritual journey, the message is always to you. The message s always telling you to change. Now, what most people do is they use religion to try to change other people. It’s always someone else that needs changing. No. Stop it. Once and for all. Whatever happens to you in your life is a message to you. Oh the ego wants to avoid that. So we look for something out there to change–somebody not like me is always the problem.
