We can take the spiritual life as deep as we want to go. But it seems like most people are content to swim in the shallows. It’s convenient, comfortable, and popular.
But the deep water - that’s where growth happens.
The unknown of the depths may seem scary. The company we keep will most certainly be much smaller.
But that’s ok.
There’s an unlimited banquet of food in the depths and endless room to grow.
Who wants to be a puny little minnow, when you can be a whale?
“It is a dangerous thing to be satisfied with ourselves.”
-Saint Teresa of Ávila
