“If you keep listening to the love, if you keep receiving the love, trusting the love – even with all your limitations, with all your unworthiness, with all your limited intellect or whatever you feel holds you back – you start to experience within yourself a sense of possibility.
Whatever life is inviting you into, you have this sense that is still okay and even better, that you can do it.
As Mother Teresa loved to say, “The only real success is faithfulness.” To be faithful to this inner love is in itself the greatest success. It is of itself the major possibility. No outer successes are henceforth necessary to be happy.
This liberation is not a need to be outrageous or rebellious. It’s so much better than that. It is permission to be the “image and likeness of God” that you already are! We each are unlike any other image or likeness.
God is saying to each of us, “All I want is for you to return to the Sender who you really are!” Ironically, it takes most of our life to find that True Self, to accept it, and to return it to the Manufacturer—now with our own signature attached.”

I feel so blessed we have connected too. Have been traveling so am behind in reading and responding to comments. I do love Rohr’s voice too. I would love to go out there again. Am thinking maybe fall of 2014. maybe, Lord willing. Blessings on your weekend!

I love it that we are connected now on several different levels. We have been traveling so I have not been timely in responding but thankfully we are home now and back to routines. I am so blessed to have met you over the internet!

Mia you are such a good commentator I love it when I see your name here with a message. I apologize for not replying to all the comments you have left lately. We have been traveling. Vacations are a blessing but I sure am glad to now be at home and back to normal routine. Your words are filled with so much love from our Pappa. Thank you for sharing them with me!
Hi Jean! Ok, now we really are sisters separated at birth. My brother and sister went to a Rohr retreat in the Southwest, and bought me a series of his tapes. (His voice is so soothing!!)
When he talks, everything makes sense. I love that! But the material to ponder is endless.
I am thankful for my faith, and for a desire to go deeper, and share with my sisters and brothers in Christ!
Have a blessed weekend Jean!

I totally agree with the words that once we find our Lord Jesus as He lives in us, we truly don’t need outer success or things for that matter to be filled with joy. It is then the fruit of the life of Him living in you.
