God is the creative impulse
that sets life into being
this creative impulse that is being itself
expressing itself in new forms of life
coming to consiousness
in the form of human being
self-consious as I am
Grace strikes us when we are in great pain and restlessness. It strikes us when we walk through the dark valley of a meaningless and empty life... Sometimes at that moment a wave of light breaks into our darkness, and it is as though a voice were saying: "You are accepted. You are accepted, accepted by that which is greater than you, and the name of which you do not know."
