Our brilliance can’t save us


Consider the possibility that the need of the moment is not to accumulate more data and knowledge. The answers we are searching for are not contained in any book, including my own. What we are looking for is inside ourselves. It’s not something we access on the level of taking in new ideas in our head. It is accessed in and through what is real in our deep feelings. A person who is illiterate is at no disadvantage to stepping into and touching what is real. A child has not yet developed an elaborate or sophisticated mental processing capability and yet Jesus said it would be better for us to become children in order to grab a hold of the truth. One day we will figure out that it’s not our mental brilliance that’s going to save this world. I just hope its soon.
