Certainty, Faith and Love | Dr David G Benner

The real danger of dogmatism and certainty is that they do not leave space in the soul for love to take root and grow.

I found this older post by David Benner o be most appropriate advice at the neginning of a new year. Here is just a quote:

‘Physicist Neils Bohr is famous for saying that while the opposite of a correct statement is a false one, the opposite of a profound truth is often another, seemingly contradictory, profound truth. No where is this more true than in the case of spiritual truths.  But in order to grasp the larger truth – or better, to be grasped and held by it – it is essential that we be prepared to hold the tension associated with the two apparently contradictory elements.’
