A Lever and a Place to Stand

Richard Rohr

“The world knows when we are just quoting clichés that we hardly believe ourselves, just mouthing doctrine not connected to the lived experience of humanity.” begins Fr Richard Rohr at the teaching for the John Main Seminar in Thousand Oaks, California. In his loving and humorously confrontational manner, he reminds us to embrace our humanity and encourages us to question the ways in which we live our beliefs. Expanding on the theme of ‘contemplation and actions’, Rohr speaks of the lack of inner experience and inner authority in our Western culture. “Every viewpoint,” Rohr says, “is a view from a point.” Beyond the world of constantly changing opinion, we can find a place to stand, in our true self, which enables us to see beyond the fixed boundaries of the ego. Many of John Main’s teachings are interwoven into this 3-day conference series as Rohr describes “the inward, downward journey that sets us free.”
