„Človek hlasno narieka pri každej bolesti, ale málo sa teší, keď nijakú nemá.“

„Ježiš sedemnásťkrát hovorí „nasledujte ma!“. Ani raz nepovedal „uctievajte ma!“.“


„Všetko sa pohybuje smerom ku vteleniu.“

„Kedykoľvek si myslíte, že máte úplnú pravdu, tak vás nevedie Boh, ale vy sa snažíte viesť Boha.“

„Ježiš nachádza Boha vždy v tých bez zásluh.“

„Prvých 2000 rokov kresťanstva budeme nazývať kojeneckým kresťanstvom.“

„Je zvláštne, že mnoho vecí, na ktoré kladieme zvláštny dôraz, Ježiš vôbec nevyslovil. Naopak, na mnohé veci, na ktoré my dôraz vôbec nekladieme, Ježiš robil.“

„We do not think ourselves into new ways of living, we live ourselves into new ways of thinking.“


„every time God forgives us, God is saying that God's own rules do not matter as much as the relationship that God wants to create with us.“ Falling Upward: A Spirituality for the Two Halves of Life

„Faith does not need to push the river because faith is able to trust that there is a river. The river is flowing. We are in it.“

„Most of us were taught that God would love us if and when we change. In fact, God loves you so that you can change. What empowers change, what makes you desirous of change is the experience of love. It is that inherent experience of love that becomes the engine of change.“

„Before the truth sets you free, it tends to make you miserable.“ Falling Upward: A Spirituality for the Two Halves of Life


„Christians are usually sincere and well-intentioned people until you get to any real issues of ego, control power, money, pleasure, and security. Then they tend to be pretty much like everybody else. We often given a bogus version of the Gospel, some fast-food religion, without any deep transformation of the self; and the result has been the spiritual disaster of "Christian" countries that tend to be as consumer-oriented, proud, warlike, racist, class conscious, and addictive as everybody else-and often more so, I'm afraid.“ Breathing Underwater: Spirituality and the 12 Steps

„People who’ve had any genuine spiritual experience always know that they don’t know. They are utterly humbled before mystery. They are in awe before the abyss of it all, in wonder at eternity and depth, and a Love, which is incomprehensible to the mind.“

„There is nothing to prove and nothing to protect. I am who I am and it's enough.“

„It’s a gift to joyfully recognize and accept our own smallness and ordinariness. Then you are free with nothing to live up to, nothing to prove, and nothing to protect. Such freedom is my best description of Christian maturity, because once you know that your “I” is great and one with God, you can ironically be quite content with a small and ordinary “I.” No grandstanding is necessary. Any question of your own importance or dignity has already been resolved once and for all and forever.“
