Implanted Desire – Law and Grace | Center for Action and Contemplation

This is a remarkable meditation.  Richard Rohr is a Franciscan monk, but his thoughts here about the role of God’s love in inspiring us to love back, and the importance of God’s preservation of our freedom, are consistent with key Swedenborgian teachings.  As Richard says “God does not love you because you are good; God loves you because God is good.”

The meditations hearkens as well to the conclusion of The How and the Why of Emergence and Intention (written intentionally to avoid a reference to “God”) – “the universe rewards us with life, with complexity, and with the capacity for knowledge, self-exploration and wisdom…  It is meant to be lived in, to be explored, and to be loved.”
