Thinking and Christians


Richard Rohr in: “Adam’s return”. (pg. 160)

“I think, therefore I AM NOT.” My thinking is NOT ME; it is the primary substitute for me and the place to hide from moving from pure and simple presence to being. Most believers stay in their ideas and avoid the humiliating collapse back into naked being. Western philosophy surely reached its low point in Descartes’ infamous 'I think, therefore I am'. We now know that the truth is exactly opposite".
