Spirituality points, always, beyond: beyond the ordinary, beyond possession, beyond the narrow confines of the self, and - above all - beyond expectations. Because "the spiritual" is beyond our control, it is never exactly what we expect.More Ernest Kurtz quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
[A] journey becomes a pilgrimage as we discover, day by day, that the distance traveled is less important than the experience gained.More Ernest Kurtz quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Baseball teaches that errors are part of the game.More Ernest Kurtz quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Yet again, an ancient answer echoes across the centuries: Listen! Listen to stories! For what stories do, above all else, is hold up a mirror so that we can see ourselves. Stories are mirrors of human be-ing, reflecting back our very essence. In a story, we come to know precisely the both/and, mixed-upped-ness of our very being. In the mirror of another's story, we can discover our tragedy and our comedy-and therefore our very human-ness, the ambiguity and incongruity, that lie at the core of the human condition.More Ernest Kurtz quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
If we learn to accept our imperfections with humor, as the reflection of our very humanity, we will experience humility and tolerance, we will understand that we are already filled with forgiveness, we will see the gift of our lives, the chains will fall away, and we will be free -- free not so much from fear or 'dependence,' but free for love, for life itself.More Ernest Kurtz quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
