Connecting with your own experience

In these times when organized religion needs to take a back seat, I was struck by something Rich Rohr wrote recently when he said that “organized religion, can actually discourage us from taking the path of trusting our experiential knowledge of spiritual things by telling us almost exclusively to trust outer authority—in the form of Scripture, tradition, or various kinds of experts—instead of telling us the value and importance of inner experience.”

In these days of uncertainty it might be important to live by this inner light that God has given all of us.
