If I had a guru....


If I had a guru, it would be Fr. Thomas Keating, whose lectures in San Francisco I had the great fortune of attending twice.

From Thomas Keating, "Epiphany, the Feast of Contemplatives",
in the December issue of The Contemplative Outreach

"The Incarnation of the Word made flesh is the marriage between the divine and human nature in Jesus Christ. We share in the mystery of the Word made flesh in virtue of the oneness of the human species and become one body with Christ.

"This season, let us put aside all fear and surrender to the Eucharistic presence in which Christ, that is God, gobbles you up. … SO BE YUMMY! That is to say, really surrender to God! Turn your life over completely to love and see what remains – hopefully nothing but God. So let God be all in all in you."
