01.02.2007 | empty.

by Tim K. Snyder

This morning I was pouring through my journal from my trip to Nicaragua in 2007. My journalling was particularly contemplative on that trip. It was my third day in the country when I was reflecting on this quote from Fr. Richard Rohr, a Franciscan priest...

When we are nothing, we are in a fine position to receive everything from God. That's where we stop living out of other people's response to us. We can then say, "I am 
not who you think I am. Nor am I whom you need me to be. I'm not even who I need myself to be. I must be 'nothing' in order to be open to all of reality and new reality.  — Richard Rohr, Everything Belongs.
