Authentic Transformation

It is difficult for God’s Word to enter our inner temple because its entrance is blocked by our endless array of attachments. Outside the inevitable suffering caused by death and accidents, most suffering bubbles up out of our craving for transitory things and our worldly attachments.

It is easy to become attached to the kind of secure certainty peddled by religious fundamentalism. But this kind of “knowing” is a road block to true knowing. Clinging to the comfort of certainty is just as bad as all our temporal attachments.

In order to be heard, God requires silence and detachment from us. Without daily contemplative silence it is impossible to have a true encounter with God’s Word within us, where authentic transformation begins.
