On Being with Krista Tippett: Richard Rohr — Living in Deep Time

Posted on by Jeremy Daggett

One of the best interviewers of our time, Krista Tippett, interviews one of the great thinkers our time, Richard Rohr. The result is well worth 52 minutes of your time (Overcast).

Everything Rohr says about non-dualistic thinking is thought-provoking. I also loved the bit about asking God for one good humiliation a day (and when he gets it, analyzing his own response to it). Finally this, on what it means to be human:

The ‘truly human’ is always experienced in vulnerability, in mutuality, in reciprocity.

Vulnerability transforms you. You can't be in the presence of a truly vulnerable honestly vulnerable person and not be affected. I think that's the way we were meant to be in the presence of one another.
