vulnerability and deep time

::

::

“The truly human is always experienced in vulnerability, in mutuality, in reciprocity.” 

“To be a contemplative is to learn to trust deep time and to learn how to rest there and not be wrapped up in chronological time. Because what you’ve learned, especially by my age, is that all of it passes away. The things that you’re so impassioned about when you’re 22 or 42 don’t even mean anything anymore, and yet you got so angry about it or so invested in it. So, this word contemplation — it’s a different form of consciousness. It’s a different form of time.”

Franciscan spiritual teacher Father Richard Rohr
