Everything BelongsThis entry is part of a series of significant thoughts from Everything Belongs, by Richard Rohr. See the entry entitled Everything Belongs Reflections for more info.

The belief that God is “out there,” is the basic dualism that is tearing us all apart. That’s why we have raped the earth, why we have such poor understanding of our bodies, our economy, and our health. That’s why we live such distraught and divided lives. What is worse is that Jesus came precisely to put it all together. He said, “This, the human, is good. The material, the physical can be trusted. This world is the hiding place of God and the revelation of God.”
