In his morning devotional (read a week too late) Fr. Richard Rohr offers us this quote that I thought to be fitting to the goal of this blog:
“If you want to find God, then honor God within you, and you will always see God beyond you. For it is only God in you who knows where and how to look for God. When you honor and accept the divine image within yourself, you cannot help but see it in everybody else, too, and you know it is just as undeserved and unmerited as it is in you. I call this the “Principle of Likeness.” From this frame you stop judging and start loving unconditionally, without asking whether someone is worthy or not. The breakthrough occurs at once, although the realization deepens and takes on greater conviction over time.”
