On being a work in "prog-mess"
"Take this as a koan: ‘I am the glory of God.’ Make that thought the center of your meditation so that it slowly becomes not only a thought but a living reality. You are the place where God chose to dwell … and the spiritual life is nothing more or less than to allow that space to exist where God can dwell, to create the space where his glory can manifest itself. In your meditation you can ask yourself, ‘Where is the glory of God? If the glory of God is not there where I am, where else can it be?’"
I would modify this just a little bit and make the koan this: "You are the glory of God, which means that I am, too."
This is an absolutely beautiful post. I was craving it and didn't know.
