Thought for Today

Copyright 2016 by R.A. Robbins

“Religion is meant to teach us true spiritual human character. It is meant for self-transformation. It is meant to transform anxiety into peace, arrogance into humility, envy into compassion, to awaken the pure soul in man and his love for the Source, which is God.”

—- Radhanath Swami

“Humility of heart is the capacity just to be for the sake of God…One way of entering into this fundamental Christian attitude is to learn once again what it means just to be – to allow ourselves to rest before God with the being he gave us, with no other intention, effort, or purpose, except to surrender that being back to him. This is the orientation of contemplative prayer and the ultimate purpose of every genuine spiritual exercise.” ~ Thomas Keating, Heart of the World
