(HT: google for Fr. Richard Rohr)
Fr. Rohr writes:
A Hasidic Jew said, to be able to experience ourselves as givers of energy, we have somehow to know ourselves as God (here you find a thin line between truth and illusion!). We have to know who we belong to, we have to believe in the divine indwelling, we have to trust our souls. The Hasidic Jew said something beautiful: “When I pray I’m God.” Prayer itself is God. It’s not something that I do for God; prayer is God in me loving God outside of me, and God outside of me loving God in me. The Spirit is the gift of prayer within us (see Romans 8:26-27).
So maybe the fine line is to challenge ourselves daily to go and be God? Or go and be like God?
