"Having a blog is like wandering around your house naked with the windows open; it's all very liberating until someone looks in the window. However, while being caught unawares is one thing, it is quite another to stroll up to the window and press your naked, flabby body against the coolness of the glass in a hideous form of vertical prostration for all the world to see..." These posts are the smudges that are left behind on the window.


A list of my favourite quotes

Doubt is a pain too lonely to know that faith is his twin brother.
Kahlil Gibran

Blame is safer than praise.

Love your enemy! Love them as they are putting the nails in your hands and feet and pushing the spear into your side!
Tom Shadyac

Find out how much God has given you and from it take what you need; the rest is needed by others.

God doesn't care who you were, only who you are.
Cowboys and Aliens

All things in moderation, including moderation.
Mark Twain 

If you accept a punitive notion of God, who punishes or even eternally tortures those who do not love him, then you have an absurd universe where most people on earth end up being more loving than God.
Richard Rohr

When you love, you should not say, "God is in my heart", but rather, "I am in the heart of God".
Kahlil Gibran

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 is 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.
Richard Rohr
