Monk In The World

To be a monk is to have time to practice for your transformation and healing. And after that to help with the transformation and healing of other people.

SHALOM







The below quote was taken from NPR'S "On Being". An interview by Krista Tippet in 2011 with Rabbi David Hartman.
The good Rabbi died February 13, 2013




"I don't know what God is, the being of God, but I know it's a shattering experience. It opens you to the world. It takes you out of your narcissistic ego trip and says, look, see the other. Show strength through compassion, through love, not through violence. And to be reminded each day of those achievements. Not simple, but I'm still hoping. I'm still hoping. It's not easy to be a religious man. It's hard to be an awakened human being."


Bows & Amen
