“People…will spend hours launching prayers into the heavens. They will travel halfway around the world to visit a monastery in India or to take part in a mission trip to Belize. The last place most people look is right under their feet, in the everyday activities, accidents, and encounters of their lives. What possible spiritual significance could a trip to the grocery store have? how could something as common as a toothache be a door to greater life….the accumulated insight of those wise about the spiritual life suggest that the reason so many of us cannot see the red X that marks the spot is because we are standing on it.” – Barbara Brown Taylor, An Altar in the World
Look first within yourself. You’re standing on the X. You are enough.
