There is no other way

by Cameron Schaefer on February 2, 2012

To come to the pleasure you have not
you must go by a way in which you enjoy not.
To come to the knowledge you have not
you must go by a way in which you know not.
To come to the possession you have not
you must go by a way in which you possess not.
To come to be what you are not
you must go by a way in which you are not.

St. John of the Cross, I, 13, #10

Thanks J. it is taken from a book by Richard Rohr – think you may enjoy him, he’s definitely had a strong impact on my thinking about life and faith in the past year.
