Its amazing how life works in a plan. Well, that simply means that God is in control
When Buddha refused to talk about God in order to make way for the experience of Enlightenment, he was making the same point, but even more forcefully, that Rahner was getting at in his insistence that Christians must be mystics: ‘God’ must be an experience before ‘God’ can be a word. Unless God is an experience, whatever words we might use for the Divine will be without content, like road signs pointing nowhere, like lightbulbs without electricity. Buddha would warn Christians, and I believe Rahner would second the warning: if you want to use words for God, make sure that these words are preceded by, or at least coming out of, an experience that is your own. And it will be the kind of experience that, in some way, will touch you deeply, perhaps stop you in your tracks, fill you with wonder and gratitude, and it will be an experience for which you realize there are no adequate words. Rahner listed all kinds of ways in which such experiences can take place in everyday life—falling in love, hoping when there is no hope, being overwhelmed by nature, deep moments of prayer or meditation. Often, or usually, such experiences happen before there is any talk of explicit consciousness of ‘God.’ They happen, and some such word as ‘God’ or ‘Mystery’ or ‘Presence’—or ‘Silence’—seems appropriate.Paul Knitter (via azspot)
Your ways are futile if you depend alone to yourself. We are nothing without HIM!
