Richard Rohr’s Daily Meditations

Seven Underlying Themes of Richard Rohr’s Teachings

Fourth Theme: Everything belongs and no one needs to be scapegoated or excluded. Evil and illusion only need to be named and exposed truthfully, and they die in exposure to the light (Ecumenism).

You Must Nip It in the Bud
Meditation 4 of 52

Remember, always remember, that the heartfelt desire to do the will of God is, in fact, the truest will of God. At that point, God has won, and the ego has lost, and your prayer has already been answered.

To sum up the importance of an alternative mind this message says it all:

Watch your thoughts; they become words.
Watch your words; they become actions.
Watch your actions; they become habits.
Watch your habits; they become character.
Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.

From Breathing Under Water: Spirituality and the Twelve Steps, p. 103
