PDF Breathing Under Water: Spirituality and the Twelve Steps Richard Rohr O.F.M. Full Book
Literalism is usually the lowest and least level of meaning. I have lived much of my subsequent life like a man without a country—and yet a man who could go to any country and be at home.
This nowhere land surprised even me. I no longer fit in with either the mere liberals or the mere conservatives. This was my first strong introduction to paradox, and it took most of midlife to figure out what had happened—and how—and why it had to happen.
Richard Rohr – Franciscan spirituality
Many remain stooped and stressed in those struggles for the rest of their lives. We rely on our faith and growing awareness of the world to humble us and teach us to appreciate the precious mysteries of life.
Where does falling upwards carry us? Rohr writes: In the second half of life, we can give our energy to making even the painful parts and the formally excluded parts belong to the now unified field—especially people who are different, and those who have never had a chance.
If you have forgiven yourself for being imperfect and falling, you can now do it for just about everybody else. It invites us to cultivate the gift of waking up to the beauty of reality in all its glorious ordinariness.
With his signature blend of contemplation, theology and pastoral sensitivity, Fr Richard Rohr creates a spaciousness for the soul to grow into a kind of seeing — one that goes far beyond merely looking, to recognizing and thus appreciating.
This is the heart of contemplation, the centerpiece of any inner dialogue that frees us from the traps of our perceptions and preoccupations. The contemplative mind does not tell us what to see; it teaches us how to see what we behold. We all hurt. We all fail.
We all make mistakes. Besides the Redeemer will definitely not be interested in me.
The Divine Dance: The Trinity and Your Transformation
But strangely enough, despite their own resistance the nine sins did get up and set out. Or rather something drew them magnetically to the cild. When they got to the stable, the door was barely ajar.
From inside a warm light poured forth into the outdoors. Only Avarice stayed outside and watched everything through the window. In the stable it was very quiet, Joseph stood half in the shadows. Mary seemed hardly to have taken notice of the guests.
But the child lay there and smiled and spread his arms out, as if to greet the new arrivals. And then he looked at them — all of them — but in a way, each of them thought, that his glance was directed only at them. And they returned his glance. They had no choice. And it suddenly seemed as if the child was talking to each one of them — without opening his mouth, and yet more clearly than words ever could.
The child first looked at Anger.
And above all about your own defects. Give me your resentment.
Break your rage into pieces and put them into the coal bucket, so their glow can warm the stable. It saves the world, slowly — but surely.
Have patience with yourself. And forgive your fellows their imperfect condition. Forgiveness is the only thing that changes them. Have trust. The good grows for a long time; but, even if slowly, it grows.
Then the child looked at Pride. Give me your crown. For you.
Take it as a gift. And its heart suddenly swelled to infinity, and it felt free, really free. Then the look of the child struck Falsehood.
Give me your fear of failure. And it suddenly became bright and hopeful in its heart, and it knew that everything would be well. Next the child looked Envy in the eye.This is the tragic path of the many elderly people who have not become actual elders, probably because they were never eldered or mentored themselves. Or rather something drew them magnetically to the cild.
And was always meant to be. You can trust me. This was my first strong introduction to paradox, and it took most of midlife to figure out what had happened—and how—and why it had to happen.
