Open Minds

This is part of Richard Rohr's Daily Meditation for today, May 24, 2016.  We are all familiar with the quote "receiving the kingdom like a little child" in Luke 18:17.  Rohr suggests that a person can benefit from a spiritual mentor or master who could, with his thought provoking questions or riddle or parable, make us aware of our "smallness".  This to him is important in order that we could learn which in turn is key to enlightenment and change.

If you are interested in more of Richard Rohr's reflections and thoughts here are the references listed after this daily meditation.
