As I was reading Richard Rohr’s Falling Upward, it occurred to me that eventually I was going to want a sound track for this book. So I’m starting this post with the intention of editing it as I continue to read and think of connected music.

  • on p 51, Rohr writes “God has to undo our illusions secretly, as it were, when we are not watching and not in perfect control, say the mystics. That is perhaps why the best word for God is actually ‘Mystery’. We move forward in ways that we do not even understand and through the quiet workings of time and grace.”  Which reminded me of David Wilcox‘s Out of the Question“.
  • on p 97, Rohr writes “As many others have said in different ways, we all seem to suffer from a tragic case of mistaken identitiy. Life is a matter of becoming fully and consciously who we already are.” Two songs that have helped me in this of late atr “All He Says I Am” and “139“, both by Gateway Worship.
