Quotes from Falling Upward

from Falling Upward by Richard Rohr.  Highlighted on my Kindle.


Each thing and every person must act out its nature fully, at whatever cost. It is our life's purpose, and the deepest meaning of “natural law.”

We actually respond to one another's energy more than to people's exact words or actions.

By denying their pain, avoiding the necessary falling, many have kept themselves from their own spiritual depths—and therefore have been kept from their own spiritual heights.

I particularly like this one: "By denying their pain, avoiding the necessary falling, many have kept themselves from their own spiritual depths—and therefore have been kept from their own spiritual heights."

Jason, that is a lesson I wish I learned earlier.
