"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).

Protecting Ourselves From The Word Of God

"(Jesus words) They are essentially subversive of the established arrangements and ways of thinking. That is clear from the way they first entered the world,  their initial effects,  and how they are preserved in the New Testament writings and live on in his people. He himself described his words as "spirit and life" (John 6:63)  They invade our real world with a reality even more than it is, which explains why human beings then and now have to protect themselves against them."

(Dallas Willard. The Divine Conspiracy)
