To think different

Food for thought from Richard Rohr.

 

Dorothy Day put it even more strongly: 'Our problems stem from our acceptance of this filthy, rotten system.' As long as we unquestioningly buy into the egoic system, where the roots of our narcissism (excessive interest in self) often lie hidden, we're going to have problems.

If we think we can say our private prayers and still genuflect before the self-perpetuating, unjust systems of this world, our conversion will not go very deep or last very long.
