We have seen some great ideas lately, about how to organize one’s spiritual growth, both corporately and personally.  With steps and sub-steps neatly laid out, and ways of testing, etc.  I’m sure that’s a good thing, to a certain extent.  But this morning’s reading resonates more:

"In the way of thinking which involves talking, discussing, analyzing, and criticizing, in which one opinion asks the other for attention, in which belief is replaced more and more by an endless list of conceptions, opinions, visions, and ideas which whirl around as paper boats on the sea–in this way of thinking there is scarcely room for the Spirit who speaks whenever we are silent and who comes in whenever we have emptied ourselves."
Sometimes we just make things more complicated than they really are.  Sometimes we just need to sit down, rest… enjoy the hay-fragrance in this stable, and the warmth of the animals.  If there’s something you don’t understand, just forget it for now.  Have patience, someday all will be clear.
