“We do not think ourselves into new ways of living, we live ourselves into new ways of thinking.”
Richard Rohr

“Most of us were taught that God would love us if and when we change. In fact, God loves you so that you can change. What empowers change, what makes you desirous of change is the experience of love. It is that inherent experience of love that becomes the engine of change.”
Richard Rohr

“every time God forgives us, God is saying that God's own rules do not matter as much as the relationship that God wants to create with us.”
Richard Rohr, Falling Upward: A Spirituality for the Two Halves of Life
