    OBSERVE A TREE

    And once we’re back to the topic of humility, here’s one short paragraph from Augustine 354-430 A.D. In this snippet from a sermon, Augustine argues that it is only roots deeply sunk in the dark, moist soil that enables upward growth. Here’s the quote:

    “Observe a tree, how it first reaches downwards so that it may then shoot upwards. It sinks its roots deep into the ground so that its top may reach towards the skies. Is it not from humility that it endeavours to grow? But wi...

      BACK TO HUMILITY

      Allow me to backtrack a little bit. Yesterday I posted the above quote with attribution. On Sunday, when I first heard it, I worked on the quote, the result of which was the above.

          I like evolutionary mysticism. The Sufi poet Rumi wrote "God comes to you in whatever image you have been able to form of God. The wiser and broader and more gorgeous the image, the more grace and power can flow from the throne into your heart. God is saying, I am where my servant thinks of me.
