"A few things can help facilitate change. The first and most effective is circumstances over which you have no control, especially suffering in its many forms. These rearrange your world view and awaken the dead places within. They are not what you want, but they are given to you; they become the teachable moments that can and will change you deeply."
~ Richard Rohr, OFM, Adapted from How Men Change: A Thin Time (CD, DVD, MP3)
