"When you begin to think outside the box, you often become some other "leaders" lousy follower. That usually costs something" (Andy Rayner)

"Our guardian angels are bored." (Mike Foster)

It's where I feel I'm at these days. “In the second half of life, it is good just to be a part of the general dance. We do not have to stand out, make defining moves, or be better than anyone else on the dance floor. Life is more participatory than assertive, and there is no need for strong or further self-definition” (Falling Upward. Richard Rohr.120).

Learning Nothing - Fear to Question Our Assumptions

"We all know the story of the emperor who had no clothes. It takes a child to expose the collective spell myths have over us. So we too will need to approach this as a little child (Matt. 18:1 — 4). We need to be willing to give up every preconceived notion, follow humbly wherever the Spirit will lead us, and laugh at our own nakedness. If you are too protective of your own assumptions and myths, you will learn nothing."
(Alan Hirsch & David Ferguson. "On The Verge")
