Contemplative Quote of the Day

"Repent, for the kingdom of the heavens is at hand" (Matt 3:2, 4:17, 10:7).
This is a call for us to reconsider how we have been approaching our life, in light of the fact that we now, in the presence of Jesus, have the option of living within the surrounding movements of God’s eternal purposes, of taking our life into his life.

~ Dallas Willard,
The Divine Conspiracy

This quote from Dallas Willard does a wonderful job of proving his promotion of and involvement in contemplative spirituality! His warped definition of "repent" sure does a better job of giving us the warm-fuzzies, though, doesn't it?
