“Time and time again does the pride of man influence his very own fall. While denying it, one gradually starts to believe that he is the authority, or that he possesses great moral dominion over others, yet it is spiritually unwarranted.

Criss Jami, Salomé: In Every Inch In Every Mile

Donald Miller
“If we hear, in our inner ear, a voice saying we are failures, we are losers, we will never amount to anything, this is the voice of Satan trying to convince the bride that the groom does not love her.

Donald Miller, Blue Like Jazz: Nonreligious Thoughts on Christian Spirituality

“I am fond of reminding my yoga students of the saying “It takes one to know one” when they become lost I condemnation and judgment of others. The world that we perceive is a reflection of our own states of mind and reveals our own level of consciousness. The world is little more than a Rorschach blot in which we see our own desire systems projected. We see what we want to see. (116)”
Prem Prakash, The Yoga of Spiritual Devotion A Modern Translation of the Narada Bhakti Sutras

Criss Jami
“We tend to think that refusing to exalt Christ is staying true to our self-will and personal freedom when really we are condemning ourselves. Sure, we can pretend to stay true to ourselves, but if you want to talk about reality, all of that is completely trivial if this life is an island and He's the only pilot with a plane and a flight plan.”
Criss Jami, Killosophy

“I made the mistake of thinking that condemning other people's misdeeds somehow made me virtuous.”
Colin Beavan, No Impact Man: The Adventures of a Guilty Liberal Who Attempts to Save the Planet and the Discoveries He Makes About Himself and Our Way of Life in the Process

“With the growing awareness of the role guilt played in psychological maladjustments I had a desire to begin an intensive study of the whole concept of guilt and conscience—both biblicaly and psychologically. That study led me to question two assumptions held by many Christians. The first is the belief that guilt feelings are a helpful form of motivation. I have now come to believe that not only are guilt feels destructive, they are diametrically opposed to a scriptural view of motivation and actually reflect our own independent efforts to solve the problem of sin in our lives. They actually pose a barrier to spiritual growth and maturity rather than being an incentive for it,”
S. Bruce Narramore

Richie Norton
“You can be aware of what you're not, without condemning yourself for where you are.”
