‘If we are unwilling to live askew for a while, to be set off-balance, to wait on the ever-spacious threshold, we remain in the same old room for all our lives. … If we will not balance knowing with a certain kind of open ended not knowing – nothing new seems to happen. Thus it is called 'faith' and demands living with a certain degree of anxiety and holding a very real amount of tension. We have to be trained how to do this. The only two things strong enough to train us in this are suffering and prayer.’
~ Richard Rohr OFM, The Enneagram: A Christian Perspective, New York: Crossroad Publishing, 2009, p. xx. Quote taken from this fascinating document (PDF) from Moot.
