On Power, Domination and Circles

Words of wisdom on a Friday morning in August from Fr. Richard Rohr.

“Circles are much more threatening than pyramids are,
at least to empires, the wealthy, or any patriarchal system.
What if we actually surrendered to the inner Trinitarian flow
and let it be our primary teacher?
Our notion of society, politics, and authority—
which is still top-down and outside-in—
would utterly change.
“The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ,
and the love of God,
and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit”
should be our circular and all-inclusive ecology for everything,
including love, power, mercy, and justice.”

Richard Rohr “No Domination in God”
