“The Circle” (Cynthia Bourgeault)

“In contrast to virtually the whole salmon-swimming-upstream orientation of the perennial wisdom—that the way to God is ‘up,’ moving from lower to higher—Jesus here places his entire bet on the process of inter-abiding: I in you, you in me, all in God, God in all.

It is not a ladder but a circle that brings us to God: the continuously renewed giving and receiving which in its totality is where God dwells.”

-Cynthia Bourgeault, The Wisdom Jesus
