“My friend, you see how perishable are the riches of this world; there is nothing solid but virtue.”
One must first know how to trust the self, in order to know how to trust at all….and this requires courage.
Courage is the foundation that gives reality to this trust.
We find our original goodness when we can discover and own these three attitudes.. deeply planted within us….
A trust in inner coherence itself (FAITH)
A trust that this coherence is positive and going somewhere good (HOPE)
A trust that this coherence includes me and even defines me (LOVE)
The Universal Christ by Richard Rohr
One must choose the best each day, without compromise. and nurture the best into habits.
