Dark Night of the Soul (8) – Richard Rohr

In crisis, shoulds and oughts don’t help. Love wins out over guilt any day.

Dark Night of the Soul (6.2) – Loving in the moment

Whom shall I love? “Whichever one needs it most in the moment.” For she or he is the Christface set before me.

I am being loved

I like that wording more than, “I am loved,” or, “I am loved by God,” or even, “God loves me.” Feels more intimate, breathing with aliveness. “Am being.”

Love Is Not a Noun (4). Fear of rejection is belief-based. Only.

Your shame knows that imitating love for the sake of acceptance is dishonest.
