Living on the Edge

"Living and accepting our own reality will not feel very spiritual.  It will feel like we are on the edges rather than dealing with the essence.  Thus most run toward more esoteric and dramatic postures instead of bearing the mystery of God's suffering and joy inside themselves.  But the edges of our lives - fully experienced, suffered and enjoyed - lead us back to the center and the essence".

Richard Rohr, 'Everything Belongs: The gift of contemplative prayer' pp.17-19
